September 16th loomed past us as the premier of Pokemon Generations was streamed live from the Pokemon YouTube Channel. These 4-minute long webisodes retell some game stories we’ve all experienced from another perspective. With the 2-episode premier past us, I’m still confused with the direction they are trying to take with this project. Have a watch, episode 2 is also linked within the post:
Persona 5 released September 15th in Japan and we got dibs on a super cool Limited 20th Anniversary Edition, so we want to show you what’s inside this edition and why we specifically chose this one over all the ones available.
TGS 2016 is well underway now, and a ton of info has been shared and trailers to be watched. Here are my favorites. I will keep updating this post every new cool thing.
This past week was all about space through line and shape. It was a little less hectic than my labor day weekend, so let me share what’s going on.
Tabata-san announced their fancy new PS4 model, the Luna Edition PS4 (slim). GameStop took the liberty of nabbing the sales to themselves, as they are the leading limited edition console handlers of America now, so it seems.
Originally rumored and now confimed on Amazon (for me), everyone else had it confirmed via Ubisoft’s blog. Here’s the trailer. We missed you, Ezio! Welcome back! See you in November. November 15th to be exact.
The R_View is a series that presents ‘our view’ of the first hours and our initial impressions of a game 😉
An itelligent mash-up of a ton of simple mechanics that make a fine and complex platformer from the high pedigree of developers who brought us the legendary blue bomber and Metroid Prime.
Today marks the TGS events and PlayStation’s press conference starts it all off with a ton of announcements. Catch the hour and a half prez (in Japanese) right here:
The new PS4 firmware gives the interface a slight facelift with larger icons and more readable font and features that make our everyday gaming organization less cluttered.
Update includes a music update to the quick menu, HDR support, interface-lift, easy LAN data transfer to new PS4s and, of course, FOLDERS!
I like the larger icons specially on my shiny new 55″ 4K TV. It helps make the interface more reader-friendly from 10 feet away.
I don’t usually use the quick menu anyway, but the addition of music will benefit those who like to listen to music on top of their games.
HDR content is cool, but let’s see what difference it will make and that’s even if you have your own HDR compliant TV.
My favorite and long time wish list item: FOLDERS. You can now add folders and organize what goes inside. They even allow you choose content from within the folder creation menus. All awesome, I swear. Less clutter and more clean. Kudos Sony!
For a full list and details on what’s new, hit them up on the PlayStation Blog post.
But we get another beautiful trailer, so that’s nice!
Thankfully, the game’s release date is not pushed back that far. Personally, I appreciate that it will be released in January, after I’ve had some time to slog through my Christmas playlist!
