PlayStation 4 – Infamous

Saturday, January 25th, 2014

inFAMOUS_Second_Son-Delsin_Rocket_1377021656Recently I got the chance to have some up close and hands on time with the pending PlayStation 4 exclusive Infamous: Second Son. During our coverage of the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Sony had a massive exhibit space that featured everything from UHD Televisions to wearable tech and of course the PlayStation 4. The game is the third in the Infamous series and follows a new character named Deslin who is a graffiti artist in Seattle.

The city is under the crushing control of the Department of Unified Protection, or DUP and when his powers become active, Deslin must battle the DUP to restore freedom to the city. (more…)

In a reported statement to Polygon by an EA spokesperson, the company appears to confirm that EA has ordered Dice to stop all work on the new Star Wars game and Mirrors Edge games in order to fix the numerous issues facing Battlefield 4.

The series is no stranger to bugs as Battlefield Vietnam and Battlefield 3 were almost unplayable at launch on PC until a plethora of patches were released to help resolve the issues. (more…)

Playstation 4 (PS4) or Xbox for Christmas ?

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

SKNR Cover Sep2013With all of the hype and hyperbole over the launch of the Playstation 4 and Xbox One starting to fade now that both systems have launched, it is time for us to give both of them a grade and that grade is Incomplete. Now I am not bashing on either of the systems but rather stating that consumers simply do not have enough information to properly evaluate their systems.

When the Playstation 3 launched, there were issues over the price of the unit, the lack of titles available and many cited Resistance as the only solid release exclusive for the PS 3 and waited patiently for future titles.This time out the Playstation 4 has Killzone: Shadow Fall and Knack as their main launch exclusives and offers several free to play games via the Playstation Store.While this is a good step in the right direction especially with a nice selection of third party games such as the latest offerings in the Assassins Creed and Call of Duty series.

Recently my wife and I traveled to beautiful Anaheim California to cover the 2013 Blizzcon Convention.  The convention sold out online in moments and drew fans of Blizzard Entertainment from around the world for a weekend of news, panels, previews, music, Cosplay, and more.  Those who were not able to get into the convention were able to follow along via DirecTV or through online streaming which could be purchased from the company.

EA Sports Amazing FIFA 14

Monday, November 25th, 2013

EA Sports FIFA 14With the worldwide impact of FIFA at an all-time high, EA Sports has captured the majesty of the sport of Soccer with the amazing FIFA 14. The game is available for the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 systems and is due soon for the next generation consoles.

While I played Soccer in High School I will admit that my knowledge of the professional game is limited as names such as Pele, Beckham, and Donovan are the players that I would be able to identify the easiest. Regardless of your level of skill and experience, FIFA 14 has something for you from eye-popping graphics to the most realistic action and player options of any soccer game to date. (more…)

Paintball 2 the game?

paintball 2 the game

paintball 2 the game

I’m a middle aged (yes, don’t sound so surprised) guy that likes playing the occasional video game. What guy doesn’t? It’s even better when I can hang out with my daughter and play games together. What can my wife say about that…..lol

I must admit though that I’m not up on all the latest (still enjoy my play station 2) games out there so I’m really enjoying our new partner, Skewed & Reviewed.  So much to learn.

This latest entry , Gareth speaks with paint ball legend Greg Hastings.  Legend? I didn’t even know you could play paintball on TV let alone the fact that they had a legend!

Apparently they have over 1000 real players for this latest version including moms (very cool)and  Ninja’s and they make up their own rules? Gotta love the world of online gaming.

Click here to read the full interview with Greg Hastings.
