I sometimes wonder how I bloody function at times, seriously…
As mentioned in the title, Enhance, Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s new company after Q Entertainment and Sega have announced that they will be making the next Tetris game, Tetris Effect. For those who don’t know of Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s work, he was the man behind Space Channel 5, Rez, Lumines, and Every Extend Extra. It appears that this new Tetris game is going to be a sensory aural and visual experience with Mizuguchi’s legendary visualisations and music as you play the classic puzzle game that vaguely looks like the original Electronika 60 version, but with some futuristic neon visual effects.

After announcing the game on Tuesday, Rockstar revealed the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer. It looks to be a very pretty game, but it barely shows any of the characters, or what kind of plot it might have. Though in honesty that might be a good thing because we have to wait a year before this game comes out. As expected the game is coming out on the PS4 and XBox One; there doesn’t seem to be a PC release. However, Rockstar did announce that there will be a way to play Red Dead Redemption (1) on the PC through Sony’s PlayStation Now streaming service. Personally I just wish there was a means to get it properly on the PC through Steam, but at least that’s another game on PlayStation Now that makes the service worth it.
After a few teasers that Rockstar put out on Facebook and Twitter, fans got excited for a possible new Red Dead game, and it turned out to be true! Rockstar announced Red Dead Redemption 2 today, with a trailer coming out this Thursday.
What’s been said is that the game isn’t a sequel, but a prequel (Why call it Redemption 2 then?) The game will come out on the PS4 and XBox One in 2017, however a few gaming news sites such as IGN have speculated that there might be a chance to play this game on the PC and base their opinion based on the fact that Grand Theft Auto 5 eventually made it onto the PC a year after it’s console launch. Still doesn’t mean anything due to the fact that Redemption still hasn’t got a PC port yet! Rockstar also mentioned that Redemption 2 will come with an online mode named, Red Dead Online.

Today’s Vlog is a response to a Youtube video that I found through Twitter. Mister InfectedFlinch asks the question of Linear or Open World games? In other words do you enjoy games that have a set plot and task, or do you rather what to do your own thing, explore the world, and make your own story?
Here’s Dave’s video talking about his issue with Grand Theft Auto V.
I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of Sony, nor am I huge fan of the PlayStation. But I will admit the fact that the PlayStation had a pretty impressive library of games for it. Since the release PlayStation 4, I’ve seen a lot of vinyl sticker packs to dress up your PS4 to make it look like an Atari 2600 or an NES; but I thought to myself “Why hasn’t they made a PS1 skin for the PS4 yet?” Well, the 20th anniversary of the PlayStation comes along, and now there’s a super limited edition version of the PS4 console donning the classic grey colour… Continue reading →
OK, I’ve had my bit of fun watching all the E3 conferences and shows. It’s not time to get to work and talk about the good and bad things about this year’s show.
Microsoft’s show was better this year compared to last year, it was fortunate that it wasn’t all to do with Sports and TV! Typically Microsoft and the XBox being the “First Person Shooter” console, they had to show off the next Call of Duty game, Advanced Warfare, pretty much like Modern Warfare, but now more sci-fi with more drones and flashy lights on body armour. As you might tell I don’t give a damn about the COD series, and personally I wish that Activision would concentrate on something else for a change!
After seeing Forza Horizon 2 and Witcher 3, I saw a game that I kinda knew about through from fake marketing of an energy drink called Overdrive. The game is called “Sunset Overdrive”, and the video starts off being a joke to other FPS games having to take cover behind things and having a character, who’s a bit doucheir than your typical douche-bag, destroy the enemy that trying to attack said “Call of Duty”-like soldier before doucey-Mc-DouceMeister explains his game, and looking at the gameplay it looks really cool. Imagine a third person contra game, but being able to do Sonic the Hedgehog like tricks such as grind rails and run up walls, then mix it up with Left 4 Dead style Co-op where you take out mutants who are simply people who have been drinking the Overdrive energy drink. It’s nice to see some colour in an XBox game! It’s just a shame that this is an XBox One exclusive title. Continue reading →
Sony just announced more details about it’s upcoming streaming service Playstation Now at the 2014 CES show in Las Vegas. But before I dive into that bit of news, does anyone remember Gaikai?
A few years ago Gaikai was founded partly by Dave Perry (of Shiny and Earthworm Jim fame) as a game streaming service that streamed select AAA titles directly to your browser via YouTube, Facebook and other social media sites. Because all of the content rendering was done on a remote server, even gamers with slow PCs could play, provided they had a fast enough internet connection. Needless to say, I was enticed by the idea of playing games without having to upgrade to the latest video card. Continue reading →
So, it’s that time where we’re meant to get all excited about the new gaming hardware that’s coming out. OK, Nintendo did this a year in advance, but I’m including the Wii U as a whole for this particulararticle.
What gets me is that with this new generation coming, I should be excited, but I’m not, “Why?” you ask. It’s simple, looking at the games coming out, including the Wii U, it just doesn’t interest me in the slightest, and I know that in the next 2 to 3 years, PC tech would still be ahead of console gaming as a whole.
