Xbox Live update for week of September 19, 2016

There’s a whole bunch of goodness in the marketplace this week. Leading the Xbox One marketplace offerings is the surprise release of D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die. It’s another head trippy game from Swery 65, the mind behind cult favorite Deadly Premonition. It follows the saga of Detective David Young, who can travel through time more »

The TGS 2014 Silent Hills trailer doesn’t excite me like I wish it would

Now, I’m the first to admit that I’m not huge in the horror genre. The first time I played Silent Hill, I was a little too young to really appreciate it, and kept being annoyed that it wasn’t Resident Evil. I was more prepared to enjoy Silent Hill 2, and did so immensely. But we more »

Nintendo eShop Update for September 18, 2014

How do you spell anticlimactic? E-S-H-O-P! Yes, today is one of “those” updates. There are new and games, but none of them are really worth getting excited about. It’s bound to happen on a week where the two most exciting, eShop exclusives are Virtual Console titles, and was probably arranged on purpose so the just-released more »

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition on discs in about 2 weeks

Sony has good news for people who are still leary of the all-digital future. People who prefer to have a disc-based library can enjoy the Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition soon. Physical copies of the game will be here before you know it. Well, not exactly before we know it. The PS4 version of Minecraft will more »

Final Fantasy XV’s a open-world, diesel punk, road trip game? Yes!

I don’t do a lot of modern gaming. My most recent console is my PS2, and even my computer is a two year old laptop that only barely runs Skyrim with the high res pack. So I don’t pay much attention to the latest and greatest video game news. But, when someone showed me the more »

TGS 2014: Deadly Premonition creator releasing new Xbox One game Sept. 19

This one came from nowhere, and I couldn’t be happier. Deadly Premonition made 1,000 “Best Games You Never Played” lists. It featured a Twin Peaks-ish setting in which an investigator hit town to solve some brutal murders. It developed enough of a cult following to get a director’s cut re-release. Just before Tokyo Game Show more »

TGS 2014: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD teams up with Final Fantasy XV demo

Guess what? Final Fantasy XV is still a thing! In fact, it’s so much of a thing that when you buy Final Fantasy Type-0 HD , you’ll get some Final Fantasy XV with it! Yes, it’s a demo promotion. It’s also one of the first 2014 Tokyo Game Show announcements to come from Square Enix. more »

This week on the PlayStation Store, September 16, 2014

The PlayStation Store has come back online from the slim pickings it offered last week. But then again last week we got the blockbuster Destiny released with polarized reviews from critics that I haven’t seen since Beyond: Two Souls launched. The games this week are hit or miss, depending on your preference. PlayStation 4 Air more »

Destiny and the “Hamster Wheel Blues”

It is possible to kill yourself at The Tower, the hubworld in Bungie’s new video game, . All other types of violence are prohibited in The Tower, the game restricting the controls so the gun you’ve been blasting away with stays firmly affixed to your back, the fists you’ve used to pummel hundreds of enemies more »

I’m so hyped for Disgaea 5 because of REVENGE

I always get excited about Disgaea installments. There’s something about the series, and the appeal of a strategy game that can really be played for months, perhaps even a year, before it’s fully mastered. Yet, I also feel that isn’t why I’m excited about Disgaea 5. It isn’t because of what I do know about more »

What will happen to Minecraft’s Minecon?

A lot of questions about Microsoft’s Minecraft acquisition answered today. We know it’s still going to be on PC, mobile, and PlayStation devices, despite Microsoft owning the developer and game. Markus “Notch” Persson has said he’s out, now that Microsoft is taking everything over. Plus, the price tag was revealed to be a whopping $2.5 more »
