PAX East The Behemoth “Game 4” First Thoughts

Behemoth-Game-4-Teaser-GP

You may know Behemoth for their unique and quirky games such as Castle Crashers, and my personal favorite Battleblock Theater. They came to PAX East with their newest game so new in fact that it doesn’t even have a name yet and was dubbed “Game 4” for the time being. I got a chance to play the hands on demo and get a pretty good idea of what the game has to offer. Read the rest of this entry

Star Wars Episode VII Characters Revealed In Old School Trading Cards

Today JJ Abrams has released a set of 8 pictures starring the characters from the Episode VII trailer plus the X-Wings and Millennium Falcon in the coolest way possible. They were edited into the form of old Topps trading cards which is a perfect blast of nostalgia that goes along with what this movie has already been leaning toward. We didn’t get a whole lot of detail and can’t really draw conclusions other than “Kylo Ren” is a very cool and evil name for a villain and BB-8 is an adorable name for the soccer ball droid. One could also come to the conclusion Finn is either disguised as a Stormtrooper like we have seen happen before or he is a deserted Stormtrooper but regardless he is on the run if that wasn’t already evident from the trailer. Whichever marketing person’s idea it was to do this should get a raise and I can only hope they will be available for physical purchase one day. Here are the full set of cards:

To no surprise it has sparked countless debates in the Star Wars fan realm but one of the biggest arguments is in regards to the screen grab above where we see a brand new lightsaber design and the fan base is torn.

The Problem With The Current Video Game Launching Trend

call-of-duty-advanced-warfare

Now this isn’t going to be me, the gamer, sitting on my high horse complaining about games but instead a perspective on why it is games launch with non-working components and what can be done to fix it. Recently the gaming community has been spoiled with some great titles such as GTAV, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, and Halo: The Master Chief Collection however their launch was hardly a success, what did they all have in common? Game breaking bugs and server problems.

If you picked up GTAV on release day I’m sure you remember this error message or at least one of the many during the first few days of launch. The game’s online portion, which is the main reason many but into the franchise, was virtually unplayable. Same thing has happened more recently with Halo: MCC and it’s long load times, AC Unity with it’s frame rate issues, and COD AW with it’s crippling lag. Why is this? Well personally I think the reason is pretty obvious. Read the rest of this entry
