Money. It makes the world go round apparently. Though I can’t help but get the impression that it’s actually completely worthless at the same time. That or the people of Rapture and Columbia have so much that they don’t care what happens to it. Continue reading
“Oh, man! I could totally get across this canyon if someone lowered that bridge on the other side…”, supporting character sighs.
“Don’t worry, bro. I got this,” our hero says as he takes a few steps backs in preparation for the great leap ahead of him. “Neal Armstrong ain’t got nothing on me.”
Our hero dashes towards the edge of the cliff and jumps in the air only to narrowly make it to the other side.
Last December, I wrote an article about what I though the Steam Box would be (here). Essentially a stripped down PC, running Linux with a Steam OS on top of it. Earlier this week, Valve announced a Steam OS based in Linux, different hardware configurations from different manufacturers, and as well as a bizarre looking controller.
Sure, let’s take the elevator. It’s faster, efficient and saves me some energy.
So, I went ahead and pre-ordered the PS4 minutes after it’s reveal. And as the days go by, I become more and more glad I did. Here’s one reason that has me really excited: Access your game library from ANY PS4, and they’ve implemented a play-as-you-download system that allows you to start playing the game before you’ve installed it completely. Apparently they’ve also done this with their Blu-ray disc games that allows you to start playing before it’s finished installing.
If only PC could do this…
IGN’s got more info here:
Another year, another E3. There were some big things announced this year and I’ve decided to compile some of my favourites incase you may have missed it and to help avoid some of the crap. Continue reading
Now, it’s not often I support mobile ports of games, however, Injustice Gods Among Us is not a port as far as I can tell. It’s built entirely for the mobile platform with controls that are gesture based and not stupid virtual buttons. It’s fun, simple and I highly recommend it. I downloaded it last night, and I’ve been having a blast playing it. The three on three battle system keeps things from being too easy, as you can swap in and out at any moment and as one character fights, the other’s special bars charge up so you can drop in and lay the smack down on a punk.
You only start off with three characters and there a ton of things to unlock which means hours can be spent playing this game. Costumes, power ups, support powers, lots to earn. Or you can do in app purchases to get it all.
I think it would be better with some online capabilities but that’s something that could always be added in the future.
Now, you may be asking, “But, Ryan, a game of this high quality must surely be pretty pricey in the App Store?” And you’re right, games this good usually do cost quite a bit, but this one doesn’t. It’s free, so go try it!
The video below mentions being tied into the console version in someway, for things like unlockables and achievements, so that’s pretty cool. Check it out and have a great weekend!
Heh, it’s number two. But certainly not shitty, though his attitude is. Continue reading
