Collectems: Pokemon for realists?

So I recently discovered Collectems, an RPG being created by The Layabouts. It’s painful easy to say “Pokemon” when you see and read about Collectems. Hell, even the creators admit they are heavily influenced by . Just looking at the images and listening to the music that have been released for the game, everything screams more »

This week on the PlayStation Store, July 22, 2014

Last week the doldrums hit something fierce, but Sony is back with some enticing offers in the PlayStation Store. If you pre-order Rouge Legacy, The Swapper, Hohokum, and/or Counterspy you get money back. Pre-order only two and get $3 credit back later, pre-order three and get $6 back, and pre-order all four and get $10 more »

Dragon Age: Inquisition delay is okay

Just when we thought the wait was almost over, Bioware pushed back the release date for Dragon Age: Inquisition. So close were we to finally being able to start romancing our favorite characters.

Naughty Dog shouldn’t make a sequel to The Last Of Us

The Last Of Us is getting the VIP treatment from Sony. There’s going to be a live performance of the game’s script, a big promotional push is in effect for the , and, of course, there’s talk of a sequel. But that last one really shouldn’t be happening at all. It’s natural for a company more »

Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition lets you capture Kaos

The $100 Skylanders Trap Team Dark Edition is starting to look like a better investment. Every time a new game is released, there’s always a special Dark Edition that includes different character variations and other special bonuses.

I can’t believe the $150 Destiny Ghost Edition sold out

Having been a gamer for most of my life and a video game journalist for the last seven years, I’ve seen a lot of collector’s editions come and go. Most really major games tend to get one, and more often than not, you see the leftover, ridiculously-priced, uber editions cluttered around counters at your store more »

Destiny Beta lacking content and personality

The more I play the Destiny Beta, which rolled out on July 17, the more I wonder why I’m not enjoying it more. It plays well. It looks and sounds great, but I’m just not loving it.

Square Enix shuts down Final Fantasy Type-0 fan translation

Final Fantasy Type-0 is the game we didn’t think we’d get. The PSP-original was released in 2011, and after three years with no word, we figured it was a lost cause. Which, of course, led to a group of fans putting together an unofficial translation and English patch for the game. The only problem is, more »

Destiny Beta begins and PSN is down

Bad news for everyone chomping at the bit to take part in the Destiny beta. A lot of people are reporting the PSN is down. It looks like the rush of everyone going to play at once tonight was just too much strain for the poor PlayStation Network to bear. Bet you didn’t expect this more »

The Last of Us Remastered is more beautiful

I was skeptical about The Last of Us Remastered. Hell, I’m hesitant when it comes to any PS3 game that gets ported to the PS4. I mean, it’s only one generation away, and it isn’t like there’s the huge difference between PS3 and PS4 games, like there is from PS2 to PS3 games. But I more »
