It’s a new month, and a week with some fresh new releases. The biggest stand-out title this week is probably The Sims 4 bowing on PC and the Mac. For those who like large scale battles on screen there’s Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate hitting the Xbox One and the three Sony platforms. A new Sherlock Holmes title comes to the PC and Microsoft and Sony consoles, and those on PC who hunger for some zombie killing get Dead Rising 3. On the home video front there’s the football drama Draft Day with Kevin Costner, plenty of TV seasons, and the animated movie version of Heavenly Sword. Nothing big hitting theaters this week, just some smaller titles like the drama The Identical, the horror film Innocence, and an action flick Falcon Rising...Read More
This season of Telltale Games The Walking Dead has really run the emotional gamut for Clementine, making her grow up far beyond her years and making her carry the weight of decisions that would stagger most people three times her age. From the opening episode “All That Remains” to the finale “No Going Back”, Clem has had to make choices under the direst of circumstances. All we can do as the player is hope we made the right choice and see how things play out (at least the first time through, as we can always go back and see how things go if we choose a different option). This season finale brings that all to a point, and we see for Clem just how fragile those choices can be. Over the season Clem has made choices to aid others as well as make choices so she could live another day...Read More

2K has announced that its now classic story driven shooter Bioshock will be coming to the iPhone and iPad this summer. Reports state that it is a faithful port of the game, allowing for graphical differences since the hardware isn’t as powerful as consoles or the PC. The game is adapted to use touch-screen controls, and 2K has given players the option of plugging in a controller as well, in anticipation that the touch screen controls may not be accurate enough, especially for the game’s combat. Jumping has been removed, however, and trophies/achievements have been replaced with the iOS Game Center rewards. Players will also have access to a digital artbook from a previous special edition of the game from consoles.
The game will not support saving to the cloud, so progress will need to be s...Read More
