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
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.
Residents of Los Angeles are quite spoiled with comic conventions throughout the year with Comikaze, Wondercon and the Long Beach Comic Con. Out of those three the Long Beach Comic Con has the longest history to it and has featured a variety of celebrity talent and guests over the years. Nothing can quite top the level of excitement and attendees as the ‘big one’ – San Diego Comic-Con International but these smaller shows pose a charm unto themselves. For this year’s Long Beach Comic Con things seemed a bit more ‘exciting’ — we couldn’t quite put our finger on it
Sugar and everything nice was thrown out the window for this panel full of spice. Catherine Cavadini (Blossom), Tara Strong (Bubbles), and E.G Daily (Buttercup) were there to bring life to the Powerpuff Girls again. Andre from Black Nerd Comedy and Lisa Foiles were there to moderate the panel, adding to the fun. Fans of everything from My Little Pony to Rugrats and even Lollipop Chainsaw came to see these three wonderful women. The panel kicked off with an auction for the complete Powerpuff Girls series signed by the terrific trio. The proceeds went to a charity called Bronies for
Old school beat-em-ups have fallen to the wayside ever since the rise of 3D gaming. The audience has become more and more niche, despite titles like Castle Crashers and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Every game needs a hook now rather than throwing the player at some thugs and expecting magic to happen. When the 3DS was announced, I thought games would use it as a way to illustrate depth, not breasts. With such a fan-service oriented gimmick, Sengan Kagura Burst seemed like it would be nothing more than an exhaustively long boob joke. Imagine my surprise when despite the
If you are familiar with COIN-OP TV then you probably already know we’re big fans of the Skylanders franchise. What Skylanders offers to kids and gamers is a unique experience in collecting toys that are cleverly incorporated into a fantastically fun video game experience. Both Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure and its sequel Skylanders Giants were excellent entrees into the franchise but Skylanders Swap Force takes things to the next level by upping the graphics and expanding upon the storyline and characters. Skylanders Swap Force was developed by Vicarious Visions who was previously handling the Nintendo 3DS and iOS versions of Skylanders
Rekoil is an upcoming first person multiplayer shooter coming to PC and XBLA in the near future developed by Jason Brice and his team. We had a chance to sit down with the game in a private demo – while still a work-in-progress we were able to get a sense of where Rekoil is heading. Rekoil will feature both male and female characters and will release with 10 maps – we played some of the Sawmill map and Prison map. The developers stressed that player balance at any level from the beginning is their primary concern for this game. Each
Few cartoons have changed as much as Ben 10. Ben has gone from a ten year old with access to a few aliens to a budding teenager with access to thousands. In Ben 10 Omniverse 2 there are 10 aliens to chose from, with each being rather fun to play. You’ll fight as such classic aliens like Four Arms and XLR8 alongside new ones like BullFrag and my new favorite Bloxx against the Incursion Army. Sadly that’s where the party ends, as the rest of this game is worse than Vilgax’s morning breath. Ben 10 Omniverse 2 is a strange
