Batman has had a ton of different armours over the years. Suits that use miniature red suns to rearrange Superman’s pretty face. Suits that can survive deep space. Outfits designed to inflict maximum fright and pain in the hearts of criminals, who are a cowardly lot when confronted with a gigantic meat tank made up of rage and psychological issues. But Batman ain’t never had a suit like this before.
The latest games in the Pokémon series, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are out in the US and Japan. In the three days since they’ve been available at retail, they’ve sold a combined total of over 3 million copies. That’s despite essentially being remakes of older games.
I know, you guys always laugh at my Wired Wednesday because the tech I show isn't always sexy... or sometimes it's too sexy. However, today's sample of technical glory is actually a prize that Geoff won, pulling him out of the smart phone stone age. Now check out those glorious lines and curves and be jealous.
In brightest day, in blackest night, no four-stud brick shall escape my sight. Let those who worship Mega Blocks, beware my power, Green Lantern Lego’s might!
Dragon Age: Inquisition is an exquisite game, but it isn't without its problems. I ran into a handful during my review, but lately they've been cropping up more and more. The most annoying one by far is a little audio glitch that strips the game of all its sound effects, and sometimes crashes dialogue entirely. BioWare has yet to fix it, but there are some ways around it.
When I was young and foolish, I had absolute faith in Squaresoft. I remember going into stores and buying any RPG that they pushed out, which was how I discovered Secret of Evermore and Secret of Mana. That faith has been broken, but I won't lie - I'm a teensy bit excited at the prospect of this announcement.
The PlayStation Vita is a pretty fantastic gaming device... even if it is perhaps a little short of games. Unfortunately when Sony was marketing the thing they sold it as something quite a bit greater than it ended up being. A number of promised features were either misrepresented, or wholly absent from the console – leading the US’ Federal Trade Commission to take umbrage. As a result, Sony has to cough up to the system’s early adopters.
Out of all the consoles I ever owned, I’m kind of sad that I never had a Sega Dreamcast. It looked like a machine that was way ahead of its time, but getting such technology in Port Elizabeth in 1999 was most likely a pipe dream. Also, fire bad. Still, the closest that I’ve ever gotten to playing those games, was when I recorded footage of them on Cybernet and pretended to play them while holding a massive plate in my hands. The latest Humble Bundle however, is a step up from my cheap-arse techniques.
