Man, when it comes to music, I am an old man. Skrillex, Scooby Dub Dub Doo stuff? Pass. Give me some good old rock, metal and hell, even some rap music before the gold chain fad kicked in and I’m happy. DAMN KIDS, GET OFF MY LAWN WITH YOUR AMERICAN IDOL COVERS!
I don’t know about you, but even when I’m the good guy in a video game, I still dig being the bad guy instead. Thanks to games wanting to promote different choices, it’s easier than ever to go renegade and wear a black hat. And inFamous: Second Son packs plenty of karma that won’t just affect you, but everyone around you as well.
Like most people with working ear drums, I’m not exactly a big fan of dubstep music. Still, some people like the sound of what I assume is a 56K fax modem being raped by a car crash, and at the top of the wub wub list you’ll usually find Skrillex tearing harmonies and melodies a new one. Want to hear some of his latest work then? Time to play a game.
If there’s one game series that has been critically undervalued and left to rot, it has to be the Mafia games. I’ve got a soft spot for the family of crime, but it seems that recent history and other sandbox games released since then have told gamers to fugheddaboudit. A third game is inevitable. Are these the main characters?
Start training your thumbs with various exercises while playing Eye of the tiger on an infinite loop, because Capcom and Twitch are tag-teaming to start a year-long Street Fighter league.
If you’ve just joined us today, we’re discussing…something. I lost attention after my fifth tequila iced tea, but judging by the fact that several interns have disembowelled themselves, I’m guessing that we couldn’t reach a consensus on the topic. Either that, or I went too far when I started making Bloody Mary drinks.
Until Nintendo finally caves in and makes a Batarang Pokémon, I’m going to keep my in-game PC stocked with Honedge and Aegislash variants. Because nothing says business like throwing a living sword at Team Rocket. And now, master Blacksmith Tony Swatton has brought Honedge to life.
That’s not a typo. Star Citizen has managed to drum up enough financial support, meaning that a couple of bonuses are on the way to backers.
Don’t expect to see the upcoming racing game DriveClub anytime soon, because it looks like Sony is sending this project back to the pit crew for a further inspection.
That, and it gives me the excuse to use a cheerleader header image. Which is in my contract.
So the bad news for me over the weekend, was the fact that I may have picked up some food poisoning. Which would explain all the vomiting and having to sleep next to the toilet. On the plus side, instant weight loss! Woohoo! Suck it Atkins diet!
I remember the day that I first saw Final Fantasy X. It looked good! This was in the day of bulky 480p TV screens, but hell, the game looked stunning back then. And then Auron spoke, which was something that I had never seen in a Final Fantasy game. Years later, it’s still a great game, and possibly even better with an HD sheen to it. Here’s what the critics have to say.
Standby for The Art Of Titanfall drop commander. We may not be getting the Titanfall game anytime soon, but one thing that SA fans will have access to, is a behind the scenes tomb of Titanfall knowledge. So throw those older, tinier art books that came with your various collector’s edition out of the way, because the daddy of concept art has just dropped in.
Now correct me if I’m wrong, but Dark Souls has never been the prettiest of games. It’s always looked good enough, with the gameplay being the most important part of the package. Crazy, I know, but that’s the kind of game Dark Souls is. And the sequel looks like it’ll keep that trend running.
No game is immune to delays, but dammit, it does sting when a big title gets pushed back a few months. It happened to Tomb Raider, it happened to Bioshock Infinite and last year Watch Dogs got held back for a 2014 release. Ubisoft, you got some splainin’ to do.
