"Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" coming to US!

It is no secret that I am a big fan of anime. So when it was announced that "Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" would be released on consoles (PS3 and Vita) here in the states this summer I was pretty damned happy.  Where else will I finally get to pit out such epic matches like Kirito vs Mikoto Misaka! I guess I should give some more info on this game so you understand where I am coming from.  In "Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax" characters from different anime series fight each other to overthrown the evil Zetsumu. Ok, I really don't know much about it except I get to play some of my favorite characters from the Dengeki Bunko publishing library. This includes properties such as as "Sword Art Online", "Accel World", "Baccano!", "Durarara!!", "Spice and Wolf" and many more.

In all there will be 14 playable characters and 23 support characters. I know this may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I am really looking forward to it!

PlayStation Now Becomes Useful

PlayStation Now Becomes Useful

PlayStation Now is a pretty cool idea. 100's of PS3 games that you can stream to play over your PS4. While it is not true backwards compatibility it is pretty close, and if you never actually owned the games you could just play them from here. Downside is that it was super expensive comparatively to actually play the games. But that will soon no longer be a problem. Starting on 01/13/2015 you can subscribe to the service for $19.99 one month at a time or 3 months for $44.99 ($15.00 / month) for unlimited play of the entire catalog.

Review - Batman: Arkham City

Two years ago a vigilante took to the streets of Gotham City. He has taken it upon himself to clean the streets of the human filth and corrupt cops that litter them. He has kept to the shadows and inspired fear in those that would prey on the innocent. Some don't believe he exists, but all have heard whispers of the Batman. Now it is Christmas Eve and Blackmask, a notorious mobster, has placed a $50,000,000 bounty on the Bats head if he can be taken in before the end of the night. Can Batman keep out of the hands of the eight bounty hunters that took up the job and keep Gotham safe at the same time? And more important, is it worth your time to help Batman?

Buy on the PS3, Get it on the PS4

The thing about us gamers, is that we are an impatient bunch. Most often when a new game comes out we want to play it immediately. But we also have new consoles coming out, and we want to make sure that we have something to play on these new consoles. Too bad some of the most anticipated games of the season will come out before the new consoles are released. Sony is well aware of this and has come up with a compromise for us.

They are offering a program with four games, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghost, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Watch_Dogs. Now Watch_Dogs is a bad example of this as it comes out on the PS4 before it comes out for anything else. But Black Flag and Battlefield 4 come out on 10/29/2013 while Ghost comes out on 11/05/2013.  So if you buy any of these 4 games for the PS3, you will get a digital copy for your PS4. You don't even need a PS4 to get it setup. Instructions for this can be found at Playstation 3 to Playstation 4 Digital Upgrade Program site.

Dying Light - E3 Demo

Walking around the Warner Brothers area at E3, I was surprised to see a title I hadn't even heard of prior to my visit to LA.  Being a sucker for zombie games, I decided to check it out on the final day.  Is Dying Light just another rehash zombie game, or did it show some potential in the live demo?  Read on to find out.

Sony @ E3

Of the big 3,  Sony was the one that I had the most time with as I got to attend their press conference. Despite some bugs on stage the show seemed to go off rather well. Now since E3 a few things have changed, so I am going to touch on the exclusive titles that they showed, as well as what still separates the PS4 from their competition.

Dead Space 3 Demo

Christmas may be over but EA is giving gamers a belated holiday gift. As of January 22, 2013 you can get a demo of Dead Space 3 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 via there respective networks. Although if you are a 360 owner you have the option of going to  http://demo.deadspace.com and signing up for early beta access (while supplies last, expires 1/14/2013 @ 11:59 PM PST, stupid lawyer speak). The demo not only includes the new planet that you crashed on, which is of course teaming with Necromorphs, but it allows you to play co-op as either the reluctant Issac Clarke or the new character Sergeant John Carver. Wow, someone for the military is actually stepping to help this time. What radical thinking? If you find the game to be what you are looking for then look forward to the full game on February 5th in North America for the 360, PS3, and PC. If you are in Europe then don't worry, you only have to wait until February 8th.
