Sony’s press conference started with a video reel showing off the console’s biggest upcoming games for the PlayStation 4. Shawn Layden from Sony introduces the system and how broad the platform is trying and has become plus a long-awaited introduction.
Oh boy, it’s back baby. Fallout 4 isn’t the biggest surprise ever but we always want confirmation. We see glimpses of the past before the bombs dropped, the protagonist speaks and there’s a dog again. These are only speculations of what the game might feature but we can imagine that this post-apocalyptic future that’s stuck in the 1950’s will maintain the witty writing and humor that the series if famous for.
What else is there to say about Arkham Knight at this point. I just want it to come out but this new gameplay trailer is showing off more of the Batmobile. This is probably the most versatile Batmobile that I’ve seen. When engaged in the massive tank shoot out it can track the trajectory of enemy fire and drive in all directions like a helicopter. Best of all, it can do donuts.
I’ve been behind on review again, not because I haven’t been play any games. The games I’ve been playing aren’t necessarily recent. Guacamelee and Shovel Knight have recently gotten second winds due to going cross platform. Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack is a Vita launch title (made by the developer behind Guacamelee) and MonsterBag was a free PS Vita game from April. Let’s just say that I’ve had a lot of great gaming in the past little while.
From Software has just released their version 1.04 patch update and submitted their patch notes on Sony’s PlayStation blog. The changes make a lot of things work better and make things more convenient. These are changes that probably should have been implemented from the start but it’s good to see that they have been made. Most of these changes are self explanatory but I’ll give some insight on some most of the changes.
I’ve never played an MMORPG to for an extended period of time nor have I ever been able to talk about what an expansion pack truly offers but this the Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward Dungeon Crawl trailer does show off a lot. There are several new areas and some enemies that all look fairly impressive for an MMO. MMO expansions always bring people back into the game and sometimes get some people into them.
Initially, I wasn’t going to talk about Life is Strange again until the finale. This really isn’t much of a review as it is my reactions due to the events that blindsided the entire game up to this point. I’m going to be as vague as possible because Life is Strange is becoming something that stands out from Telltale in the best way.
Ubisoft certainly knows how to make each Assassin’s Creed trailer look awesome. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate takes place during the Industrial Revolution in 19th century London. It is said that this is the first game to feature a female main character with the two main characters being twins. Of course the trailer doesn’t really show this but baby steps right?

At the Toronto Comics and Arts Festival 2015 (TCAF) I played various games in various stages in development. I have a soft spot for rhythm games and after seeing LOUD on Planet X is was interested. Developers Pop Sandbox are currently running Kickstarter campaign and aiming for release on PS4, Vita and iOS. They currently have 9 popular indie bands on board and it has a unique personality and gameplay that other rhythm games that could have the same songs don’t have.
I remember hearing about Oneechanbara on the Wii and how it was a complete mess. The gratuitous violence and cheesecake sex appeal is a weird combination that isn’t really that uncommon coming from Japan. This does look a lot better than its last outing in the NA region. Hopefully this will be a great game so you can defend yourself when people scoff you for buying a pandering game like this.
