Yoshis, Transforming to Platinum, Undertale, and More!

Come on down and listen in on us. It’s what we prefer you do, really. We touch on Yoshi’s Wooly World, the newly released Platinum Games… uh… game, Transformers: Devastation, I foam at the mouth about Undertale, Marcos goes into a bit of the re-release of the Uncharted trilogy on PS4, some Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX, and we give our thoughts on the final Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer.

More Mario Making Luis Mad

Abdul dips his hands into creating Mario Maker levels and I try his first attempt, and I tango with another crazy level by Mr. Afro. Fun times to be had for all! All but me as I scream in agony.

What’d We Miss? Maybe You Missed It, Too

We’ve been gone for a while. Sorry about that! As you all know, we pride ourselves here for being real people with real lives talking about what we feel about gaming and other pop culture industry stuff! So while we’ve been busy with business trips and work, the world’s kept turning and we haven’t been able to comment on it. If you also missed it, here’s some stuff.

Kinect No Longer Connected

For those of you who were wary of the Xbox One’s need to have your Kinect connected at all times for the machine to be operable at all, you can rest easy. Unless you are looking to use Kinect enabled software, the Kinect can remain unplugged.

Nintendo Shows Off in Today’s Nintendo Direct

Satoru Iwata presents today’s Nintendo aweomeness in their Nintendo Direct video. Running about 30 minutes, it doesn’t take up all your time yet it’s long enough to get your mouth watering! What are you most looking forward to?

080413-FEZII Games

Indie and the Beast

You may have heard by now, but indie developer Phil Fish recently quit the industry and took Fez II with him. The reasoning? Well, he never nailed it down to one thing but it was right off of the heels of Marcus Beer’s comments from GameTrailer’s Invisible Walls video podcast calling him and fellow indie developer Jonathan Blow a “tosspot” and a “fucking hipster” for refusing to comment to the press about Microsoft’s recent Xbox One’s self-publishing policies for indie devs. People say he pouted after getting lashed at and took his ball and went home. Sounds legit.

Sneak a Peek at Some New Grand Theft Auto V Screens

The day is almost near us, the day where countless gamers will disappear into the void of their rooms and lose themselves in the newest offering from Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto V. That day is September 17, 2013, 49 days away. A.k.a., too f’ing long for me to possibly contain myself. But until that wondrous day comes about, Rockstar has released a dozen new screens from the game to tease us with. You can make your way over to Rockstar’s post and see the screens there, or you can just stay here, scroll down, and see them from the comfort of your computer/phone/tablet/fancy WiFi enabled toaster with that spiffy LED screen. And if you haven’t already done so, check out Luis‘ previous post and watch the sweet sweet gameplay trailer.

DLC Done Right

I’ve posted a couple of articles on DLC add-ons as of late. Mostly, I’ve been excited about it, with some exceptions. I’ve read a few comments around the internet that states DLC is nickel-and-dime-ing gamers to no end. Heck, a few of you let me know that through Facebook. I fully agree… to an extent. Not all DLC is evil or created equal, and a few companies have been doing this right. Companies like EA and Capcom to name a few, could learn from NetherRealm, DICE, Gearbox and – well, Capcom.

Forza 5 Won’t Be Push To Start

Further cementing the reason a lot of people still have mixed feelings about Microsoft, we learn through Turn 10 that once you buy and install Forza 5, you still can’t just sit down and play.

Ultra Street Fighter IV Brings More Fighters, More Levels, More Balance

EVO was all sorts of fun. Yet another year that I don’t get to attend. Hopefully I can change all that some time to go as a competitor (I’ll be out by the first round), and as a spectator! Till then, I can watch streams of bad ass fights like Justin Wong fighting his way from the losers bracket up to the finals of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 and winning his way to the second set on the finals against Flocker, and Infiltrator whipping out the Hakan against PR Balrog’s Balrog in SF4AE. I can also enjoy their awesome announcements they have for the fighting games I love! More Street Fighter? Yes please.

GameStop Halts All PS4 Pre-Orders

If you wanted a guaranteed day one Playstation 4 – or Xbox One for that matter – in your hands by midnight hours of release, seems your luck has run out – at least in one particular brick and mortar establishment.

070513-Valve Games

Valve to World: We’ll Be At GamesCom… With Reveals!

Yeah, the title says it all. Seeing as they usually don’t show up unless they’re going to show off something, the internet has officially gone into “OH MY GOD WHAT” mode. Take-Two, publishers behind the Bioshock series, will also be there. Let’s double that feeling!

Microsoft Dropped Update Fees for XBLA Games

More proof that Microsoft is trying to be more friendly with indie and smaller developers in general, Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson today posted on to Twitter that Microsft had eliminated fees for title updates on Xbox Live Arcade games starting in April of this year.

ouya003 Features

OUYA? Oh yeah! An unboxing of the new Android-based gaming console.

It was nearly a year ago that the Kickstarter campaign for the OUYA launched, and just 8 short hours later, the project had met its goal of $950,000.00. In fact, by the time the Kickstarter ended on August 9th, over 9 times the amount had been raised, with 63,416 people backing the idea of an Android-based gaming console, bringing the total up to $8,596,474.00. Over 58,000 of those backers pledged $95.00 or more in order to one of the ones to actually get an OUYA console.

Don’t Update That PS3!

Seems the recent 4.45 update that went live today for the PS3 has been bricking systems, according to a lot of gamers on the Playstation forums, as Kotaku points out.
