Mass Effect Gets a Pre-Order Trailer

As we advance ever closer to its March 21st release date, more and more details have been dropping for the highly anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda. There’s still plenty that we don’t know about the game though, with the game’s multiplayer still firmly blocked from our view. Still, just as astronomers make indirect observations of distant stellar objects, we can glean some information from what is otherwise just something meant to show off the perks gained from pre-ordering the game.

Playing Skyrim with Mods

Console players can now enjoy modded content without having to switch to playing on PC; what a time to be alive! With the launch of Skyrim: Special Edition, console gamers can now experience a taste of what the PC community has been enjoying for years, and I have to say that we really didn’t know what we were missing. I’ve only had a couple of days to explore Skyrim with user-made extras so far, but I’m already impressed! Continue reading Playing Skyrim with Mods

Musings on Console Upgrades

With the announcements of the Xbox One S, the PS4 Slim, and the PS4 Pro, gamers should have plenty to be excited about in the coming months. They should, but I don’t think that’s really the case. Instead, I think their existence has just raised questions. Of those questions, the ones that I’ve been asking myself the most are: “How long will it be before the upgraded version becomes mandatory?” and “If I’m going to have to upgrade more often, then why don’t I just make the jump to PC?” It’s not that the future looks bleak for consoles, but we are entering uncharted waters of a sort.

Why you should take a look at Scalebound.

Platinum Games are best known for Bayonetta and Transformers: Devastation is bringing a new game to the Xbox One in early 2017. Known for combo driven combat and tricky enemies, Scalebound promises to be something completely new from Platinum Games.

The basic story is Drew is a 20 something who must join forces with Thuban, a dragon from Draconis. In this the pair must save both Earth and Draconis, from something, that tid bit of information is still hidden inside Platinum’s vault. While, there are many action adventure games out there already that ask players to have parallel worlds. There aren’t any games quite like this one. Drew sports a dragon arm that enables to him to gain super charged powers and push harder in a battle. However, unlike other games where if the hero dies its game over, this game says if either of the characters dies in battle it is game over. Thankfully, you are warned when Thuban’s health is getting dangerously low by Drew’s dragon arm glowing. Drew issues commands to Thuban, however the sophisticated A.I. determines how best to execute the command. Continue reading Why you should take a look at Scalebound.

Maybe there’s no question, right? I mean, in the years where  VHS takes overlapped with DVDs and cassettes stood alongside CDs, the newer tech won without question. And here we are now with the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, both of which easily outpace their predecessors in terms of capability and power.
