Not a lot of big releases for this final week of July, but some of note. The adventure game remake King’s Quest kicks things off with its first chapter “A Knight to Remember”. “Dark Room”, the penultimate chapter for Life is Strange, launches this week, as does the remastered version of Legend of Kay and the RPG Lost Dimension. On the home video front we get an alternate universe in the DC animated movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons plays an alien who befriends a young girl in the family friendly flick Home. On the big screen, the Griswolds hit the road again in a remake of the Chevy Chase classic comedy Vacation, and Tom Cruise once again performs mind boggling stunts as the IMF tackles a shadowy organization in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation...Read More
It’s been a long time since I posted anything to this site, due to personal issue. For this post I decided to skip the video and just pictures to show you guys what I can get for my customers today.
Yes, is the newly launched Wool Yoshi Amiibo. Today is the new release of the Wii U title Yoshi’s Woolly World in Japan, and so it make sense they would release the Amiibos as well. In fact I had decided to collect one set (Green, Blue and Pink) for myself. Not only it is made from Wool (which is tad more expensive from the normal Amiibo), it can be use as accessories (which I think is pretty cool).
Hope you guys have a good weekend. Will update again when I receive my parcel from Japan by end of the month. This month I’ve been trying to mod my GBA with AGS-001 frontlight screen...Read More
The gaming community received some sad news today as it was learned the Satoru Iwata, CEO of Nintendo, had passed away. He was 55 years old. Nintendo released the following statement: “Nintendo Co., Ltd. deeply regrets to announce that President Satoru Iwata passed away on July 11, 2015 due to a bile duct growth.” The illness was something Iwata had been battling over the last couple of years, and it caused him to miss E3 in 2014.
Iwata began his career with Nintendo as a programmer in the 1980s, working at the HAL Laboratory. He helped to create the character of Kirby, launching his debut in Dream Land on the Game Boy in 1992. In 2000, he became director of the company, and was appointed President in May 2002...Read More

As we head into the final two days of June and the first few days of July, not much in the way of game releases, the biggest perhaps being J-Stars Victory VS. +, a fighting game that combines characters from several manga series. Arnold returns to the franchise that helped launch his career as Terminator: Genisys, the fifth film in the franchise, hits theaters on Wednesday. On the home video front we get the Kevin Hart/Will Ferrell comedy Get Hard, the medieval action-adventure Last Knights, starring Clive Owen and Morgan Freeman, and the Sean Penn led thriller The Gunman. Off we go to this week’s list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.

It seems LEGO games appear on a regular basis, coinciding with blockbuster movies and just giving gamers their chance to collect studs and play with virtual blocks. So it’s no surprise that with Jurassic World stomping into theaters and all over box office records that we get a LEGO game tie in. And we get a full Jurassic experience, as the game contains all four movies- Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and of course the titular movie. Each game is composed of five levels and hits all the highlights of the films, faithfully recreating famous scenes and reciting famous lines. One note here: Because the game does recreate the movies so well, I’d recommend skipping the Jurassic World portion until after you’ve seen the film to avoid spoilers...Read More
On this last full week of June we return to Gotham as Rocksteady wraps up its Arkham trilogy with Batman: Arkham Knight, coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Can’t wait to take the Batmobile for a spin. Also this week the multiplayer shooter PlanetSide 2 makes its console debut on the PS4, Devil May Cry 4 gets a special edition for current gen consoles, and Telltale Games releases episode 3, titled “Catch A Ride”, for Tales From the Borderlands. The home video front doesn’t have any major releases to speak of, just some lesser known titles such as Survivor, a political thriller starring Milla Jovovich and Pierce Brosnan and The Forger, a thriller starring John Travolta. Hitting the screen this week is Ted 2, Seth McFarlane’s follow up to his 2012 comedy about a foul mouthed teddy bear...Read More
Now that E3 has come and gone, time to reflect on what we’ve seen, what worked and what didn’t, what has us excited and what has us shrugging our shoulders. I should note that I won’t be commenting on the PC conference, as I missed that one, so my comments are about what was shown at the conferences for Bethesda, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, Sony, Nintendo, and Square Enix. I will say my overall impression of E3 2015 as a whole is generally favorable, though there were a few missteps. We got some very nice surprises in both games (Fallout 4, For Honor, Horizon: Zero Dawn) and features (backwards compatability for Xbox One) as well as a demonstration of impressive tech (the hololens)...Read More
Nintendo’s E3 2015 conference was, to say the least, a bit…odd. Opening with muppets and then breezing through their digital presentation (no live audience as with Sony and Microsoft) seems like Nintendo just isn’t sure how to present themselves to the gaming public. While fans were sure to be pleased with some of the game announcements, others left people scratching their heads or feeling a little underwhelmed. Despite the shaky presentation, there is some good stuff to be found. Off we go to the highlights.
Star Fox Zero
Star Fox returns in a game that has you completing challenges and races in both your starship and on land. The game employs the GamePad to act as your cockpit view while flying, and then you get the cinematic view of the action on your television screen...Read More
Star Wars games made their presence felt at E3, during both the EA and Sony conferences. We got more gameplay details and footage for Star Wars Battlefront, learned of a new expansion for BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic, and found out that Sony has some timed exclusives with Disney Infinity 3.0. All of this to get gamers even more excited when Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in December.
Star Wars Battlefront
EA gave us a glimpse of combat on Hoth, as well as having the gameplay trailer reveal Luke Skywalker as a playable hero. Take a look below.
Sony’s conference gave us a look at even more gameplay, with the reveal that the game is divided up into Battles, Hero Battles, Trials, and Survival, with many of these modes having missions that can be played solo or co-op.
