Looks Like We’ll Be Able to Stream PS4 Games Soon

Earlier this week, Sony announce that they would soon be expanding the library of games available for streaming via their PlaySation Now service. Specifically, they’ll be making a number of PS4 titles available to the services’s subscribers. If PlayStation Now didn’t seem worth looking into before, this addition to the service might just be enough to change some minds. Continue reading Looks Like We’ll Be Able to Stream PS4 Games Soon

New ‘Avatar’ Game in the Works

Eight years after the release of the massively popular film, the world of ‘Avatar’ will be getting the video game treatment once again. What’s more? The studio tackling the project will be none other than Ubisoft’s Massive Entertainment, the minds behind 2016’s Tom Clancy’s: The Division.

Diving Into the Toybox!

“This already feels familiar!” That was more or less my first thought once I’d booted up the Yooka-Laylee Toybox and started roaming around. For those not in the know, Yooka-Laylee is a game currently being developed by Playtonic Studios as a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. Playtonic is an independent developer comprised mostly of 90’s era RareWare veterans who produced the likes of Donkey Kong Country, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Golden Eye 007, and of course Banjo-Kazooie itself. It’s hard not to be excited about a project when these are gonna be the people behind it! As for the Toybox, it’s something that was made available to Kickstarter backers to give them a taste of the game to come, and I have to say: a taste just isn’t enough. I want more!

New Details Revealed for Zelda Wii U

I am not typically one to follow news of any kind, video game news included.  From time to time, however, a tidbit of knowledge catches my eye, more often than not relating to the select series I hold nearest to my heart.  One of those is The Legend of Zelda.  Games from this series are released more and more infrequently these days, and so it is all the more exciting that a new installment is being developed for the Wii U (and the NX, whatever that is…).  This news we have known for a while now, but aside from some screenshots of a truly impressive looking, open world, I don’t think any of us knew all that much concerning the newest game of a much loved franchise.

While looking up the game’s release date, I managed to find out a few new things about the Wii U’s first true Zelda title.  First of all, the title has been revealed to be Breath of the Wild, which I personally find to be a rather curious choice.  At this time, I also saw a new image showing Link…climbing a mountain?  Further research, and I discovered that this game is to have a very large, open world to explore, far larger than that of Twilight Princess.  We would also have more freedom to complete the game as we saw fit, as dungeons can apparently be completed in any order.  This particular detail is something I had been hearing about for some time, how they have been meaning to change the formula for the series to allow for more freedom.  I suppose now they have decided to put it into practice.  (This is also supposed to be the first Zelda game to feature voice acting.  I can’t say I’m happy about that, but perhaps it will turn out to be a good thing in the end.)

June Writing Challenge: All About Gaming News #gamersonwatch

Hello everyone and welcome to another UWG writing challenge announcement! What’s in store this month for all you #gamersonwatch? Read on!


June marks the start of the summer season — a time when big game releases start to dwindle, studios recover from the early-year rush, and players work through backlogged games large and small.  But this doesn’t mean gaming takes a break during the summer. If anything, with E3 just a couple weeks away, now’s the time when we get ready for what’s to come; when our feeds become rife with news, speculations, rumors, and that which is promised to make our short-term and long-term gaming futures better and brighter.
