The LEGO Movie Videogame comes out in Feb 2014 on all current and next generation platforms to coincide with the animated film. Will Arnett will join the voice-cast as Batman – lending his brand of humor to the character. Arnett also voiced Mr. Perkins in the animated feature Despicable Me in 2010 and will play Vernon Fenwick in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Both the movie and videogame look like tons of fun and hopefully help mix up the LEGO videogaming experience a bit which has seen its highs and lows over the last decade.
Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers is something else. When first jumping into the game I went in with little knowledge as to what I was getting myself into, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Featuring heavy anime tones and beats paired with a solid fighting system, the game is a decent foray into the world of Japanese fighters and will give a solid amount of enjoyment if you’re deep into either the genre or just in love with solid anime tales. My review for this game comes from someone not entirely deep into fighting games and the genre. I’ve played
There is always a lot of scruitiny when crossing over from one generation of consoles to another, from graphical fidelity to frames per second to pixel counts. This is especially true if you are a company’s flagship title as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is for Ubisoft. With the increased power under the hoods of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, Ubisoft kicked the tires and lit the fires on making the Assassin’s Creed IV experience the better choice over its last-gen brethren. In terms of game play, I did not experience any noticeable differences between the Xbox 360
Disney Infinity released another wave of figures just before Thanksgiving leading into the holiday season for shopping and gift giving. The new batch of figures are Ralph and Vanellope from the film Wreck-It Ralph, Anna and Elsa (2 pack) from the film Frozen and Rapunzel from the film Tangled. The Frozen 2-pack coincided with the release of the film and also includes two Infinity Discs to change the landscape in Toy Box mode. Out of the newest batch of figures our favorite has to go to Vanellope who not only is the best and most detailed toy of the bunch
The Call of Duty series hasn’t always been known as a technical showpiece on consoles but it has hit the magical 60 frames per second number that fuels its hectic fast-paced gameplay very well, so when changing generations people began to wonder where the series could go with a bit more power to use. Call of Duty Ghosts on the next generation of consoles is a slightly cleaner experience, but that’s about it. A lot of games making the jump to next-gen are using the 60 fps footnote as the big thing that they are doing to showcase the new
You know what? I really don’t know why you should explore the dungeon either. Easy jab aside, I was really looking forward to the release of Adventure Time: Explore The Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! ever since I got the opportunity to play the game at PAX Prime 2013. WayForward Technologies and D3 Publisher’s licensed dungeon crawler is little more than a hack-and-slash occurrence whose novelty wears off rather quickly. I call it an occurrence because it takes a bit more action for a game to qualify as an adventure in my eyes. As a loyal fan of the source
November 2013 made a huge splash with the release of two brand new consoles from Microsoft (Xbox One) and Sony (PlayStation 4). Typically there’s not much ‘hype’ to December games as Oct/Nov are technically the holiday release schedule window but there is a handful – mostly on the iOS side like The Room 2 and Space Hulk. Other notable releases are Grand Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3 and possibly The Walking Dead Season Two (though it doesn’t have a hard release date). Another game we expect to see in Dec that was bumped from Nov is Peggle 2 –
We enjoyed Frozen — tons of fun and stunning visuals! Kristen Bell did an outstanding job dramatically as Anna but it was Olaf (played by Josh Gad) the snowman who stole the show for comedy relief. Frozen in 3D works well because snow and ice just automatically lends itself to this effect. The movie was heavy on songs and sometimes felt a bit more ‘theatrical’ then it needed to be — sort of like an animated opera.
We had a chance to crack open the Call Of Duty Ghosts Prestige Edition for the Xbox One this week which retails for $199.99. The quality of production is stunning and will make a fine addition to your other Call Of Duty collectibles – this is for extreme fans of the Call Of Duty franchise as the bundle isn’t cheap. Probably the biggest highlight is the 1080 HD Tactical Camera – we’ll include all the details below! 1080p HD Tactical Camera: Film, edit, and share custom made videos with a mountable 1080p HD Tactical Camera, modeled from actual in-game equipment.
GameStop sent out an email earlier today announcing they’ll be carrying a new Skylanders Swap Force figure available for sale Dec 7, 2013. The image was purposely blurred out but clever Skylanders collectors can easily tell that the figure will be the as-yet-released Skylanders Jolly Bumble Blast variant. No information yet on if this figure can be pre-ordered or purchased online or not.
