Octodad: Dadliest Catch Trailer

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 16, 2013 in Videogames



This sweet little indie game was featured in Sony’s E3 press conference last week, but I want to make sure it didn’t get passed over! Octodad: Dadliest Catch is a sequel to the indie hit Octodad, in which you play as a wonderful loving father and husband living in suburbia… who happens to be an octopus. And no one has noticed. Yet. So your task is simple: control Octodad as he maintains the illusions, and struggle to do the simplest of tasks. It’s a virtual slapstick comedy, and it’s looking fantastic. It’s arriving on PC and PS4 in late 2013 or early 2014. Check out the trailer below! Read more…

Watch Quantic Dream’s Full PS4 Tech Demo: The Dark Sorcerer

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 12, 2013 in Videogames

The Dark Sorcerer

One of the most impressive tech demos of the week was Quantic Dream’s The Dark Sorcerer on PS4. It’s not supposed to be a game, but it could be expanded sometime in the future. In the demo, the titular dark sorcerer tries to summon a demon using dark magic while his goblin helper looks on. Soon it is revealed that the scene is being directed (with partial green screen in the background) and the characters are acting, though the goblin is really a goblin. Only a few stunning minutes were shown at Sony’s E3 press conference, but now the entire 12-minute demo is available to watch, and it’s pretty stunning. Read more…

PlayStation 4

Microsoft came out strong today, showcasing 13 console exclusives and even showing off multiplatform games playable on Xbox One. Sony, however, has an advantage in that it doesn’t have a horrible used game/online DRM policy, as far as we know so far. With that said, let’s get into what they announced during tonight’s last conference. Read more…

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 10, 2013 in Videogames

Dragon Age III - Morrigan

The E3 press conferences from non-platform makers generally have fewer announcements than their Big 3 friends, often retreading a few announcements, but there’s still some worthwhile news. With a new console generation about to happen (or already happening, if you’re satisfied with a Wii U), Electronic Arts has more than usual to show, for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Read more…

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 10, 2013 in Videogames

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Even though it’s not an Xbox One exclusive, Microsoft led the start of its E3 2013 press conference with the first footage of the anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Since the game is an open world game set in a wide-open desert region, the implementation of stealth has been dramatically redesigned. It looks like a very unique experience with stunning graphics. Naturally, the game is also coming out on PS4, though Microsoft didn’t want to mention that. It’s all looking quite impressive, so watch footage from the stream below! Read more…

Every PS4 Game Must Work With Vita Remote Play

Posted by Bob Muir on May 30, 2013 in Videogames

PlayStation Vita Remote Play

Do you remember wirelessly connecting your PSP to your PS3 to play PS3 games on your PSP? You probably don’t, because it was used for a scant few games, most of which were PSN games. Maybe that’s because the PSP not only didn’t have L2 and R2 buttons, but more importantly didn’t have a right analog stick. So when Sony started talking up the same feature for the PlayStation Vita and the PS4, seemingly just to compete with the Wii U Gamepad, it made sense to be skeptical. But thankfully, Sony has some good news. Read more…

Assassin’s Creed IV Trailer Shows The Life Of A Pirate

Posted by Bob Muir on Mar 26, 2013 in Videogames

Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

That first trailer for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was all CG, with nary a bit of gameplay to be seen. It’s really easy to promise anything when you’re not showing real footage, so we all needed to wait for the next trailer to make a proper judgment on the upcoming game. Now that next trailer is here, and it’s looking good!

Sony Officially Announces PlayStation 4

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 21, 2013 in Tech, Videogames

PlayStation 4 Controller

Hoo boy, where to begin? As promised, today Sony announced the future of PlayStation, the PlayStation 4. With an x86-64 8-core AMD CPU, a 1.84 TFLOPS AMD GPU, and 8GB of RAM, the PS4 has enough horsepower to run engines such as the Unreal Engine 4. The system uses a new controller, the DualShock 4; it’s close to the DualShock 3, but with a touchpad in the middle, a light to help identify each player’s controller, the ability to be tracked by the new PlayStation 4 Eye (included), and a Share button for some cool new features.
