Man, I thought that this four day week would never end. It’s been gruelling work, getting up at the crack of noon and churning out news by pushing the button on that robot that types stuff for me. Hard work indeed.
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d be able to lie in bed and play Final Fantasy X/X-2 on a handheld; one of the best JRPGs to have ever been created is running on my Vita. I’ll just cut right to the chase, this game is awesome, and the remastered HD visuals are stunning (for the most part) and runs at a buttery smooth rate (for the most part as well).
I’m pretty hopeful that Bethesda’s upcoming scare ‘em up The Evil Within will help give the horror genre the mainstream shot in the arm that it deserves. But at the same time, I just cannot condone its blatant misuse of barbed wire, painting that entire industry in a negative light. We’ve been too afraid to speak up, as we’ve already been paid off for a 9/10 review. Fortunately, one outlet still has some integrity.
I enjoy digital games. My digital library is enormous, and I can never lose it or have it stolen. Well, unless my identity is also stolen. But don't worry, now you can pick up Minecraft in a brick (block) and mortar store.
The new Amazing Spider-Man 2 videogame is coming soon, though it looks pretty much anything but amazing at the moment. Still, it’s always fun to swing about as Spider-Man – but it looks like Xbox One owners may have to sit this one out. All mentions of the Xbox One version of the game have been excised from the game’s official site.
Ken you match my beats I don’t so cause I’mma stretch my skills fo’ Shoryuken! I’m a lean mean Bison with a psycho machine, I cheat like Seth hopped up on meth and I don’t Zangief a f***! So prepare to rock ‘n Rolento as I lay down some pain like Poison in her stilettos!
The Last of Us is getting its last Season Pass content drop by way of the Grounded Bundle DLC – and it features a new mode, called Grounded, that ups the single player game’s difficulty level. It’s a little reminiscent of the much maligned Ranger mode in Metro Last Light, which gave a more difficult mode to those who pre-ordered the game. I hope paid for difficulty isn’t a trend.
There’s a long weekend coming up, and some travelling to do on the horizon no doubt. Need some entertainment, and happen to be tired of reaching three stars on veteran in Kingdom Rush? Well good news, because Blizzard’s insanely addictive Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now out globally for the iPad.
I’m taking this with a bit of salt because it’s been posted up on a website I’ve never heard of and doesn’t link anywhere trustworthy. But at the same time it seems plausible, and the info apparently comes from Geoff Keighly's "Final Hours" of Titanfall - so why not take a look.
You know you’re watching a low budget sci-fi flick when the computers are big, and the hair is even more massive. Some of these flicks haven’t stood the test of time, whereas as some have used the technology of their era to create a signature look. And Alien Isolation is looking to the original Alien film for some MS-DOS inspiration.
