Days Before Release, Destiny Gets Great Live Action Trailer


I'm not usually into live action trailers for video games, as they are usually extra cheesy, but I have to admit that I really like the one Activision released today for Destiny. Check it out below. A Fireteam heads out on an epic, action-packed road trip across our Solar System to face our enemies, take back what is ours and, in the end, Become Legend. Featuring “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. Sure, there's some cheese to be found in the trailer (when is there not?), but for the most part this is well done. Does it make me more pumped Destiny? No, but then I don't think it would be possible for me to be more excited about this game than I am now. The long and agonizing wait for Destiny is just about over. In just a few days, on September 9th, we'll get to finally become legend when … [Read more...]

Review: The Golf Club

The Golf Club

The Golf Club (PC, PS4, Xbox One)Developer: HB StudiosPublisher: HB StudiosGenre(s): Golf, SportsReleased: August 19, 2014 (PC, XOne), August 26th (PS4)ESRB Rating: E - Everyone Since there have been gaming consoles, there have been golf games for those consoles. While I don't ever watch golf on TV, I do enjoy playing it (for real on occasions, though it's been a while since I've done it) and on consoles. We're nearing the one year anniversary of the release of PS4 and Xbox One, and thanks to HB Studios we finally have a golf game to play on the new systems. Thankfully, it's also a good golf game. The Golf Club doesn't feature any real golf courses or players, nor does it have a ton of customization options. But that's okay because The Golf Club is more focused on the game of golf than … [Read more...]

I Can’t Stop Playing WWE Supercard


Late last week, World Wrestling Entertainment and 2K Sports released WWE Supercard, a collectible card game developed by Cat Daddy Games, as a free-to-play title on iOS and Android. It was free, so I downloaded it onto my Samsung tablet. But I didn't play it. It wasn't until yesterday that I finally gave the game a chance. I was instantly hooked. Of course my tablet battery is absolute garbage these days, so that didn't last long. Not wanting to put the game down though, I went and downloaded Andyroid, the Android emulator for PC. Within minutes, I was on the Google App store installing Supercard onto my emulated Andy tablet right on my PC. I had signed in with my Google account to play the game on my tablet, and did the same on Andy. That meant I could pick up exactly where I left off, … [Read more...]

Get Ready To Become Legend, The Destiny Launch Trailer Has Arrived


Bungie and Activision released the official launch gameplay trailer for Destiny today, which you can view above (and you should, it's a good trailer). Unfortunately, we aren't celebrating a launch with this launch trailer. That's not for another just about three weeks, on September 9th. Oh how I wish it were in my hands right now. There are enemies out here you would not believe, but they’ve never seen anything like you. It doesn’t matter who you are, only what you will become. There's still time to pre-order if you haven't done so yet. We're getting closer though! … [Read more...]

Review: Madden NFL 15


Madden NFL 15 (PS4 [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360) Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: EA Sports Genre(s): Football, Sports Released: August 26, 2014 ESRB Rating: E - Everyone I played and reviewed last year's Madden NFL 25 on PS3 when it released. That game later came to PS4 and Xbox One, but as I didn't get a PS4 until May, I didn't experience last year's Madden game on the current gen systems. So the first thing I noticed when getting into a game on Madden NFL 15 was just how much better it looks versus last year's game on PS3. It simply looks amazing, and the team at Tiburon has gone a great job of adding in a ton of detail. They've scanned the majority of team rosters, so at the very least star players are going to look like their real life counterparts (to a degree of course). … [Read more...]

Review: Surgeon Simulator A&E Anniversary Edition


Surgeon Simulator: A&E Anniversary Edition (PS4) Developer: Bossa Studios Publisher: Bossa Studios Genre(s): "Simulation" Released: August 13, 2014 ESRB Rating: T - Teen Surgeon Simulator received a lot of buzz when it initially released on PC, not because it was an authentic surgeon simulation game, but because of how absurd it is. After watching videos, I was intrigued and tried out the game. I saw the humor in it, but wasn't a fan because the controls were horrible (by design to a degree) for me. When I heard it was coming to PS4, I knew I wanted it because a controller would be better for me. Note that the game still controls horribly, again by design. That's part of its, and maybe its only, charm. You only have one hand, and on PS4 your thumb and index finger are controlled by … [Read more...]

Get A Glimpse of Mars and Venus In These New Destiny Trailers


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kkv74QxryUI Bungie released a new gameplay trailer for Destiny a couple of days ago that showed off some of what Mars has to offer (view the trailer above). What little we know of Mars may as well be a myth. We built a massive metropolis in the red dust. No one knows what remains of our lost age, now buried beneath the dunes. Today, they've released another new trailer, this one showing off gameplay from Venus (watch it below). Venus was once the site of a great discovery – a paradise. Now, it is a monument to all that we have lost. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIr4DRtnG_E Destiny hits stores on September 9th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: Man these trailers are great; the planets are beautiful. I wish it were September … [Read more...]

Get Competitive in Destiny With This Trailer


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20opyh1pLYg Guardians, prepare to enter the Crucible and test your skills against other Guardians in the Destiny competitive modes. Watch the trailer above to get a small taste of the various competitive multiplayer modes that will be available when Destiny releases on September 9th for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: The trailer was released last week, but I'm just now able to get around to posting it. If you've been following this site then you know that Destiny is a game I am super excited for and has been hands down my most anticipated game since E3 2013. I don't usually like competitive FPS, but I loved playing Control in both the Destiny Alpha and Beta. There's something about it that appeals to me where most online shooters … [Read more...]
