Cross-play Has Finally Come Minecraft on PS4

As reluctant as they were to allow it, it looks like Sony is being true to their word in regard to allowing cross-play on their platform. The next wave of cross-play-enabled games is coming, and the first among them is Minecraft! The Bedrock version of the game has finally hit PlayStation 4, and it’s about…

Listmas 2019: 5 Best 'Waiting Around' Moments

Idle animations have always be somewhat underappreciated in games, don’t you think? The developers could just let the characters stand there like statues while we do whatever it is that’s taken us away from the game, but they don’t. More often than not, game makers take the opportunity to add just a little more fun…

Tools Up! is Here to Fulfill All Your Renovation Fantasies!

I like to think that just about everyone goes through a period in their life where they fantasize about hand-renovating their house and apartment. It’s one of those things where you can’t help but wish you were competent (and wealthy) enough to do it all yourself. Of course, for most of us this period only…

Merry Listmas Everyone!

Well everyone, looks like the holiday season is upon us once again. That’s right, it’s finally time for another holly, jolly Listmas. As is tradition here on Virtual Bastion, December is the month of Listmas and boy have we been looking forward to it! For the next few weeks, we’ll be serving up all manner…

Returning To Reach After 7 Years

Despite all that’s happened over the past several years and all of the incredible games that I’ve played in that time, some part of me still can’t believe that it’s been about seven years since I last booted up Halo: Reach. I’ve always insisted that Halo 3 was my favorite of the series, but I…

Gris is on PS4 Now

One of my absolute favorite games from 2018 is finally out on PlayStation 4! Yeah, I admit it; I absolutely love this game, and I was a little disappointed that it could only be found on the Nintendo Switch and PC at first. I consider it too good to be confined to a single system….

Revisiting Nier: Automata

You know, it’s actually kind of crazy to me that’s already been about two whole years since I was first introduced to Nier: Automata. It’s been on my replay list ever since I finished it the first time, and I kind of can’t believe I wasn’t able to work my way back around to it…

Valve Announces New Half-Life Game…for VR.

It’s been 12 years since the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 2. It’s kind of hard to believe, but it’s true. It really has been twelve years and two console generations since we were last able to check-in with Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance. Well, the wait is finally going to be over! Valve has…

We Happy Few ‘We All Fall Down’ Expansion Hits on November 19th

Despite suffering a pretty terrible launch (not to mention a controversial stay in early access), it looks like Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few is still hanging in there. The game will be getting a new expansion next week, titled “We All Fall Down.” As the name implies, the tenuous situation in Wellington Wells is about…

Minecraft is Still Incredible!

There are few games that I’m able to come back to year after year and still thoroughly enjoy. Most of them are childhood favorites: Super Mario RPG, Metroid Prime, Majora’s Mask and such. There’s also Minecraft, a game which I never thought I’d like until I tried it. Despite preferring games that offer curated, structured…
