PlayStation Now might skip PS1 and PS2 titles

When Sony announced their acquisition of streaming serve Gaikai fans were promised that they would be able to stream PS3, PS2 and PS1 games in the near future. Fast forward today and Sony have only marginally delivered on that promise. PlayStation Now is Sony's future of game streaming, but it seems like PS2 and PS1 titles have been dropped.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue coming for old gen systems?

Assassin’s Creed Unity is coming this year, and it’s shaping up to be one of the more…*ahem* revolutionary titles in the series. Set in that very famous era of cutting rich French people’s heads off, it’s coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC only. Don’t feel bad, those of you stuck with those old-gen consoles, there’s one coming for you, too. Previously rumoured to be called Assassin’s Creed Comet, it’s now quite probably set to be called Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Uber Edition is a guide

Considering the vast range of Collector's Editions, I think we've gotten used to the idea that it will be difficult to decide what version to get when a game is released. I got all excited to hear about an Uber Edition for Dragon Age Inquisition, but it's not as uber-ly cool as I thought.

Destiny’s six-player raids get more details

Destiny is going to have several flavours of gameplay modes when it launches. Exploration, story missions, the Crucible and Strike missions to name a few. But it’s the Raid missions that will truly test players out, as these high-level events are crafted for those gamers who can work as an actual team.

These are August’s REAL PlayStation Plus games

Earlier this week, wild and silly rumours suggested that we’d be getting The Swapper and Octodad, along with Saints Row 4 and Blood Dragon as the subscription-granted freebies with PlayStation Plus. As I surmised, the list seemed bogus for a number of reasons, and it turns out it was, with the developers for those games denying the rumours. Here’s the real list of games.

Nintendo lost $97 million last quarter

The console market really is a strange thing. I think back to last generation, where the Wii caused all sorts of havoc, outselling it’s competitors even though the console could never keep up in the pixel pushing department. This generation however, we have the Wii U, and It is barely struggling along. This seems to be really hurting Nintendo, as they have lost a whopping $97 million in the last quarter alone.

This Dragon Ball Z movie is a Super Shoe-in for best of the year

What do you do, when you’ve got a marketing budget, an upcoming westernised release of the latest Dragon Ball Z movie and have had a momentary lapse in judgement? Simple! You hire the guys at Mega 64 to make a tribute Dragon Ball Z movie for you! That actually happened, as Funimation presumably got drunk one night, and gave Mega64 a blank cheque. This is the end result.

League of Legends: patch 4.13 and Gnar reveal

I used to be that snotty Dota 2 player, the one who scoffed at any other MOBA, especially League of Legends. That all changed when I got over myself and tried the game out, and boy was I pleasantly surprised. It’s really quite popular, and Riot know they need to keep balancing things out and adding content to keep League players happy.

In Other News – 30 July 2014

And thus another month has been broken, much like my jeans after a Friday binge in a candy shop. You were a worthy foe July, but even you could not stand forever. And with you out of the way, nothing shall stop me from destroying the last remainings months! Mwahahahahahaha!

Collectibles Corner – Groot,Rocket and why so serious?

Look at your empty shelf. See all that dust? That ain’t collectible! And what’s this nonsense that I hear about wanting to save money and put away for things like food, insurance and medical assistance? Balls to that! I say blow your money! Live dangerously! Live flashy! Buy pieces of sculpted plastic with your hard-earned bucks!

Naughty Dog did TLoU remaster to master PS4

The PS4 remaster of last year's much lauded PS3 game, The Last of Us, has been released and getting plenty of critical acclaim again. While fans of the series and those who missed it on PS3 are sure to love it, many felt it was just a ploy to grab more money. However, it actually was beneficial for developers in a way money can't buy.

Developing for Xbox One is extremely expensive

Independent developers applauded Microsoft's decision to hand out free Xbox One dev kits to studios on the company's ID@Xbox program. They cheered even louder when Microsoft revealed that patching games wouldn't cost a cent. I wonder how many of them will still be happy after seeing how much it costs to publish a game on Xbox at the end.
