Preview: Flame Over [PS Vita]

Laughing Jackal are the very model of a hard working developer. Moving up through the ranks developing for Sony Platforms, LJ have progressed from Playstation Mini’s, to PSN titles and now PS Vita exclusives, over the course of several years of graft. Of course, the developer has also released games on Steam and other platforms, but there’s no doubt that Playstation platforms are the place this dev calls home.

News: Dead Rising: Watchtower Movie Trailer

The lovely folks at Crackle are bringing us a Dead Rising made-for-streaming movie. It’s interesting as this seems to be more proof that made-for-streaming is quick becoming the direct-to-video of the future. It’s interesting that Crackle is Sony’s streaming service, which co-funded the development of this Dead Rising movie, yet only 2 titles (1 being a spin-off) have made it to Sony Platforms with the others remaining exclusive to Microsoft platforms and PC. Trailer below:

So, one year – two Assassins Creed titles. Wow. One of them has gotta suck right? Well, surprise, surprise it’s totally not Assassins Creed Rogue, which invokes some really fresh ideas into the stagnating series.

REVIEW – Escape Dead Island [PC, PS3, Xbox 360]

What is Dead Island as a franchise? What does it want? What are its goals? First we had an amazing trailer filled to the brim with nuance and emotion. This trailer was insanely deceptive as the actual game was almost the polar opposite with no meaningful story, characters or motivation. Instead, we got a fairly broken action-horror title, that was great fun… but strangely forgettable.

REVIEW – Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham [PS4 Reviewed]

This past year has seen the release of several high profile LEGO titles. Earlier in the year, we saw the release of The LEGO Movie Videogame – a movie tie-in that not only didn’t suck, but actually managed to add some clever new mechanics into the game. Later in the year we had LEGO The Hobbit, which once again expanded the systems and mechanics but tread too closely in LEGO Lord of the Rings footsteps to really feel like it’s own game.
