Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition Announced, Releasing October 14th


Whoa. Grand Theft Auto V isn't the only open world game getting a remastered edition for PS4 and Xbox One this Fall. From out of nowhere, Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition has been revealed for PS4 and Xbox One. And it's releasing on October 14th. The definitive edition will include all of the game's DLC, which is valued at $85. The Definitive Edition will retail for $59.99 and is available for pre-order now at Amazon. Speaking of pre-ordering, doing so will net you a limited edition 28-page art book, which you can get a glimpse of below. Smith's Sentiment: I know I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. There are way more games I thought would get a "definitive/remastered" version for the new consoles way before Sleeping Dogs. Heck, I would have pegged Nordic Games to get a … [Read more...]

15 Minutes of Game: Thief

15 Minutes of Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJCfK0AonpE Time for another installment of 15 Minutes of Game and this time around we're looking at a playthrough of the "Lockdown" chapter of Thief on PS4. This is the demo that was added to the PlayStation Store in yesterday's update (and I can only assume the same demo that was available at launch and then removed without notice soon after). In this game of first person stealth, I failed. Not only did I get the predator label for knocking out guys (at least I didn't kill anyone), but I also got spotted. And the reason I got spotted was because I hit the square button and peaked around a close door when I was actually trying to close the open door. That couple of seconds prevented me from getting to the jewelry case and sneaking up on that guard. That … [Read more...]

Murdered Soul Suspect

Murdered: Soul Suspect (PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4[reviewed], Xbox 360, Xbox One) Publisher: Square Enix Developer: Airtight Games Genre(s): Action-Adventure Released: June 3, 2014 ESRB Rating: M - Mature   Hello again ham and eggers, and welcome once more to The Backlog. Yet again I'm running a fair bit late in getting to my write up, but unfortunately, my day to day life doesn't seem to care that there are a few people that like to see what I think of a video game. Have no fear though, I have found my way home once more. As stated last time, and as you can surmise from the title of this post, we will be taking a look at Murdered: Soul Suspect. I know of at least a couple people personally that were curious about this game, so I better quit stalling and get to … [Read more...]

Rise of the Tomb Raider Announced

Rise of Tomb Raider

The sequel to last year's Tomb Raider was announced today during the Microsoft E3 conference, and it's titled Rise of the Tomb Raider. Check out the reveal trailer above. Rise of the Tomb Raider is scheduled for a Holiday 2015 release. Smith's Sentiment: Not much to go on from the CG trailer, but that's expected since it's not releasing for a year and a half (assuming it doesn't get delayed). Still, Crystal Dynamics did great things with their reboot of the franchise last year, and so there's plenty of reason to be excited about the direct sequel to it. Not really a fan of the title though.   … [Read more...]

Kingdom Hearts III is in development and was originally announced at Sony's E3 conference last year. This is the E3 2014 trailer by the way. … [Read more...]

Murdered: Soul Suspect, the unique looking action-adventure game from Square Enix and Airtight Games, got a new trailer today dubbed "101" just two weeks away from its June 3rd release. You can check out the trailer below, which shows off what systems you'll have to use to help solve the case of the serial killer and your own death, as well as what awaits you in the game's purgatory world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTDx1nBc11k Murdered: Soul Suspect hits stores on June 3rd for PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Smith's Sentiment: The game was announced a year ago and turned some heads at the time due to its unique plot and seeming mix of genres. It seems like it has sorta fallen off the radar for a lot of gamers, but I'm still very much interested in it. It continues to look … [Read more...]

Review: Thief

Thief (PC [Reviewed], PS4, XB1, Playstation 3, Xbox 360) Developer: Eidos Montreal   *Nixxes Software BV for the PC. Publisher: Square Enix Genre: First person stealth adventure Release date: February 25, 2014 This is a series that has been on hiatus for too long. Like many other long fans who have held their breath since the mixed bag but IMHO overly hated Dark Shadows, the news of a new Thief game was at first met with jubilation and then as media and details came forth a sense of caution and concerns on certain details. Some of these concerns were well warranted as we have ourselves another mixed bag of a Thief game. I think there's some hate out there that is extremely overblown. I have seen some reviews that also go to another extreme of absolutely gushing although they are in the … [Read more...]
