This weekend yielded a ton of great news for PlayStation owners, with Yakuza 5 finally being localized for the US and EU, Persona 5 being officially announced for regions outside of Japan, and Suikoden II coming to the PSN after years of fans asking for it. Several new games were shown off, and Uncharted 4 even had a fifteen minute video showing gameplay, but some of the greatest news for fans of PC Adventure titles were satiated by Double Fine’s announcements. In addition to the already announced Grim Fandango remaster (due out 1/27/15), Tim’s latest adventure game Broken Age will be launching on PS4 alongside the PC release of Act 2. The Double Fine published, Boneloaf developed Gang Beasts will launch next year when the game officially launches on PC. And the newest announcement (so new that the only news available is that it’s happening) is that Day of the Tentacle: Special Edition will be coming at some point. It’ll be interesting to see what lengths this is updated – will it be like the Monkey Island updates, or something else entirely? It’s wonderful to see such classic titles getting the chance to be played by younger generations, as they defined a generation for many. Now to hold out for Full Throttle…

If you’re a fan of RTS games, you’ve no doubt heard of Eugen Systems. If you don’t recognize them by name, perhaps you’ll recognize their games: Act of War, RUSE, and the Wargame franchise.

If you miss the style of ’90s RTS, this looks to be picking up where they left off. Read More »

Game of Thrones has become quite the sensation in the fantasy genre, both the books and the adapted television series. Sadly, the series has not had such success with the video game format, even though it seems it would be a perfect fit. Based on the dramatics of the IP, it seems only right that Telltale would take a stab at it. With the release of Iron from Ice, fans of the series are no doubt curious as to whether it holds up with the other formats, or if it falls on its own sword like previous attmepts. Luckily, Telltale knows what they are doing. Read More »

Are you a fan of video game music? I’ve loved the soundtracks since I first heard Manami Matsumae’s work on the Mega Man series before I could even read. Since then, I’ve grown to love music of many forms, and video games span so many genres and hold so many emotions that it’s hard not to adore them, even without playing the games. Well, Game Music Bundle 8 just launched today, and it once again has two tiers to choose from: $1 for five albums, and $10 for an additional fourteen (nineteen in total, for the math impaired). It contains works from Disasterpeace (which video game music bundle isn’t he in?), Calum Bowen, Paul O’Rourke, Lifeformed and plenty more! Support artists for the awesome music that adds so much to our favorite interactive medium!
