I’d write something funny right here, but seeing as how this is being typed from a toilet while my organs revenge themselves on me for daring to eat vegetables, I’m kind out of any topics today. Uuurgh, it smells like Batman and Robin the movie in here.
I’ve got to buy ‘em, I’ve got buy ‘em! Chinpokomon! Hey kids, do you like South Park: The Stick of Truth? Then you’ll love this guide to finding all of the Chinpokomon in the game! Chinpokomon such as Lambtron,Roo-Stor and Shoe! BOMBA DAH HARBORU!
I’m still nursing a massive grin on my face over the news of a new Batman game from Rocksteady. Gotham is getting bigger, there’s a new black hat in town and Rocksteady wants to end their trilogy (You don’t count Arkham: Origins) with a bang. It all sounds good. But bugger all that, I just want to drive the Batmobile.
I can’t see Dishonored not getting a sequel. The game was well received, Bethesda saw the chance to craft a new money-making universe and there’s a bunch of disappointed Thief gamers right now who would embrace it with open arms. Is it coming? Well here’s some more evidence to lend credence to the first rumour.
Pink lights, beanies and the city of rock ‘n roll. Damn, I cannot wait for Infamous: Second Son. Which is why I should hurry up and do a new order for the game after my last one got cancelled for '”abuse”. Infamous: Second Son will most likely be a lengthy game. And once the end credits roll, there’ll be more content on the way.
In brightest day, In blackest night, None shall escape our sight. Let those who worship solar-powered might, beware our lack of power, Because Eskom's out of lights.
I’m busy replaying Batman: Arkham Origins, and to be fair, it’s still a lacklustre and mediocre game that doesn’t live up to fantastic efforts of Rocksteady, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. Still, if there’s one thing that I do like about the game, it’s the Batsuit. Which is probably why I’m slobbering over this figure right now.
I don’t handle horror games well. The reason for that might be because of some solid scare design, some well managed use of knowing when to to do a jump-scare or the fact that I’m an absolute coward. So you can bet your clean pants that a game such as SOMA is going to have me assuming the foetal position when it arrives.
I don’t think we need to go through the song and dance yet again of how PlayStation Plus is a massively valuable service for anyone who has a subscription. The service has proven itself, with heaps of great games from first class studios on the PlayStation 3 so far. On the PS4 however? It hasn’t been the biggest titles so far, that have been free. Expect that to change in the future.
One genre that has seen a dip over the last decade, has to be the strategy game. Sure, there’s a few great examples out on shelves now, but they certainly don’t dominate sales like they used to. One of the best such games back then was Homeworld, a cosmic real-time battle amongst the stars. Gearbox has been hard at work remastering the two games. And they sound like old-school ideas with new school visuals.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: No other game on the market knows how to make a kill-shot as gruesomely satisfying as the Sniper series. Most of the gameplay may not be up to scratch, but when you bunker down and take aim? It’s pure magic that comes out of that barrel. So when is the game out? Soon actually.
I’ll be honest: I don’t dig much live-action TV these days. I have, and always will be a fan of animation. And right now, some of the best damn cartoons are running on TV, and deserve your attention. Here’s a list of the outstanding 2D and 3D arts that are currently on.
This past weekend, I had the misfortune of eating the worst Portuguese food ever made by human hands. Chicken with no flavour that had clearly not been defrosted properly, resulting in a watery middle. Half-done chips. A sauce that was about as spicy as a Wimpy Zinger burger. This meal was so damn bad, that when I gave my dogs the remains, they ate it with long teeth. No man should suffer like I do.
Guys, I know what you need. More Tom Clancy’s The Division. And if you step into the dark alleyway that has the oddly convenient factor of being able to muffle loud noises, I’ll show you a couple of new ones. That’s right, follow me…
In revenge of Japan news, the nation that was home to Sony PlayStation and the last to get their hands on the new PS4 console has had a chance to play Dark Souls 2 before anyone of you lot have. Naturally, there’s a score attached to the end of the rope that said reviewer was going to use to help forget about the crushing difficulty of the cult hit RPG.
