Are you ready for some football? Yep, sports fans, it’s that time of year again, the time the NFL is gearing up for a new season and a new Madden game hits consoles. Madden NFL 15 launches on both the Sony and Microsoft consoles, as well as being mobile for Android users. Football not your thing? How about a scholar taking on a lawyer? Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright bows on the Nintendo 3DS this week, as does the action platformer Mighty Gunvolt. Telltale games wraps up its second season of The Walking Dead with the finale “No Going Back”. You can travel underground in the post apocalyptic Metro in the new shiny package Metro: Redux, and there are more ways to die in the new DLC for Dark Souls II in Crown of the Old Iron King...Read More
In the wake of popular actor/comedian Robin Williams death, two petitions were circulated by Change.org to have Williams immortalized in video games. Williams was known to have been an avid gamer, naming his daughter Zelda after the popular Nintendo series and doing a set of ads with his daughter for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. One petition was sent to Blizzard Entertainment to place Williams in World of Warcraft, which has succeeded and will be happening. The other was sent to Nintendo to place Williams as an NPC in a future Legend of Zelda game. Nintendo has responded to the petition, with a spokesperson speaking to Polygon...Read More
Those using Sony’s platforms should be kept busy this week, as the lion’s share of new releases will be arriving on the PlayStations. Perhaps the biggest release this week (also arriving for those with Microsoft’s consoles) is Blizzard’s Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, which contains both the original game and the Reaper of Souls expansion. Going to be fun diving back in, slaying tons of beasties and gathering plenty of loot. Two downloadable titles hit the PS4 this week with The Last Tinker: City of Colors and Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Sony’s Play 2014 wraps up with Counterspy (cross buy for all three systems), a stylized action title...Read More
Well known actor and comedian Robin Williams was found dead on Monday, the apparent victim of a suspected suicide, according to the Marin County coroner. Williams appeared in a wide variety of TV shows and movies, beginning his career in 1977. His last TV series was The Crazy Ones, which had been cancelled after only one season. He also appeared in three movies currently in post-production- Merry Friggin’ Christmas, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, and Absolutely Anything.
Mara Buxbaum, spokeswoman for the comedian, released this statement Monday: “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Not a whole lot happening in the way of game releases for this second full week of August. The hard to describe but colorful Hohokum arrives on Sony’s platforms, along with a trio of RPGs. PS4 users can play doctor with Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition, and PC users can get their fantasy fix with Neverwinter: Tyranny of Dragons. On the home video front, those lovable Muppets return with Muppets Most Wanted, Batman deals with an assault on Arkham Asylum in the latest DC animated offering, and you can follow the lives of a family of bears in Disneynature: Bears. On the big screen, Sly Stallone and crew are back in another bullets and quip fest in The Expendables 3, and the young adult novel The Giver is the latest to get the big screen treatment...Read More
(NOTE: The following list are James’ picks, and don’t necessarily reflect everyone here at leetgamers.asia. Proceed at your own risk and enjoy! Comments welcome below. -Ed.)
Sitcoms (read: situational comedies) were a big part of my life growing up, and if I’m not watching animated greats like Adventure Time and Spongebob, it will be sitcoms I’m watching nowadays (or Breaking Bad, but that ended). There are a lot of bad sitcoms today, and whiny actors bartering $90 million for their work on said bad sitcoms, but the list I present to you today is a cavalcade of comic gold. So, bring up your Netflix account (or Hulu, Amazon, cable/satellite, torrents, etc.), and get ready to binge milk out your nose.
Criteria: Animated and live-action both count, but said shows must be at least 30 minutes l...Read More
Not a lot of big games being released this first week of August. The action/RPG Sacred 3 hits consoles and the PC this week, and Sony’s Summer Sale continues with The Swapper, as the critically acclaimed game moves from PC onto the PlayStation consoles and handheld. We get a movie tie-in on the Nintendo 3DS, and yet another version of Street Fighter IV. On the home video front, we get the young adult sci-fi flick Divergent, the horror thriller Oculus, and the video game inspired Need for Speed. On the big screen this week, producer Michael Bay gives us a new vision of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, we get a food fest in The Hundred-foot Journey, and watch as a small town faces the wrath of Mother Nature in Into the Storm...Read More
This last week of July isn’t overly big with new releases, but it does have a few of note. The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4, so those who didn’t have a PS3 can see what everyone was raving about, as Naughty Dog’s version of a post apocalyptic America is well worth your time. Rogue Legacy makes the leap from the PC to Sony’s platforms for those wanting a dungeon crawler fix, and there’s a new LEGO game for the handhelds. On the home video front, Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Fountain) biblical epic Noah debuts, as does the Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman. Those who remember the delightfully bizarre David Lynch series Twin Peaks can dive in all over again with the release of Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery...Read More
Yep, the folks at Asylum have gone and done it again. With the crazy success of Sharknado (one of the most watched movies made for SyFy), it was inevitable that a sequel would come along. For your enjoyment, watch the sneak peek below (courtesy of SyFy).
Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) return from the first film, as this time the shark infested storms threaten the Big Apple. Joining the cast for the shark mayhem in New York City this time around are Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day, Kill Bill) as Skye, and even a Brody family ( a nice nod to Jaws) including Martin Brody (played by Mark McGrath), Ellen Brody (Kari Wuhrer, from Eight Legged Freaks), Mora Brody (Courtney Baxter), and Vaughn Brody (Dante Palminteri). The sequel is directed by Anthony C...Read More
Very, very slim pickings this week. Good week for those who want to catch up on their backlogs, or finally get around to play an earlier title that you missed. Only two games for the week, one for the PS4 and one for the PC. Elsewhere, we have the family film Rio 2 landing on home video, along with the sci-fi flick Under the Skin. In theaters this week we get Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel making a Sex Tape (and then trying to get it back), the planes returning for another family flick from Disney in Planes: Fire & Rescue, and crime gets a free pass again for a night in The Purge: Anarchy. Time now for this week’s list and , need I remind you, release dates are subject to change.
