RPGs have long been a staple of the hardcore geek/nerd. Some people think this started with Dungeons & Dragons. In the current incarnation this may be true. Although I’m not sure of what or how, something tells me there has to have been Continue reading
After pouring through the PS4 FAQ last week, I wanted to give a breakdown on some of the important items that might be easy to miss. There are a lot of positives and negatives going on that people can overlook. I’ve added commentary on some items to give clarification and insight on what’s actually going on, or at least what we believe is going on. The original FAQ Sony posted is twice the size this and very disorganized. I’ve moved items around into different sections to make the FAQ easier to follow. I’ve also removed a lot of unimportant or redundant items to cut down the size of the FAQ. I mostly stay away from console comparisons because this is about the PS4 specifically, and not meant for console war flame bait.

Here’s a game that many of us played and loved….perhaps more than we realized.
I wasn’t a big fan of the mainstream Disney characters. To this day, if you were to ask me what my favorite classic Disney cartoons are, I’d still say The Black Cauldron, The Sword and the Stone, and Fantasia. Mickey Mouse never did it for me, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, etc. Not really a fan. But there was just something about DuckTales that clicked. It was a fun, well made series. The best thing to come out of it, however, was the video game that came out in 1989 for the NES.
Games based on popular licensed properties have RARELY been good. Sure, there are exceptions like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Chronicles of Riddick, and the recent Walking Dead titles. But notice…those are all *new* (do I need to mention the LOST game?). Back in the day, the NES days, production companies would license anything and everything. Just to make more cash. To them it was no more different or important on the consumer end than slapping a decal on a t-shirt. Little effort and less love was put into most of them. *cough*E.T.*cough*. DuckTales, however, changed that. Continue reading

Every year at the New York Comic Con, companies bring their upcoming titles for the fall season for the public to try out. Because it’s so late in the year you can usually play all of the biggest games coming out for the holiday season. This year is not different.
