Spooptober: Dr. Reid’s Hammy Lines in Vampyr

Overall, Dontnod Entertainment’s Vampyr is a decently spooky game. To begin with, the entire game is steeped in an atmosphere of hopelessness bordering on fatalism thanks to the Spanish Flu epidemic. Once the supernatural elements come to light and we learn more about the true nature of the situation, everything takes on a much more…

Vampyr Looks Even Better (Spookier?) on PS5 and PS4 Pro Now

When it launched in 2018, Vampyr was already a decent-looking game. It wasn’t pushing the envelope of visuals, but it didn’t look bad either. If anything, its art style and visual fidelity actually served the overall feel of the game, that of hopelessness and melancholy in a completely exhausted and plague-ridden London. The game could…

God of War Ragnarok is Looking Good so Far

Last week, Sony put out this year’s PlayStation Showcase, giving fans a taste of what’s to come between now and the end of 2022. There were things for just about everyone to get psyched for, but the one and only thing that held any interest for me was the new teaser trailer for God of…

Cheeky Charlatans: Calypso

Even though I never played much Twisted Metal, the series’ main villain is nonetheless the epitome of cheekiness to me. Calypso has the power to literally anything, and he uses that power to put on crazy vehicular death death tournaments starring only the worst of the worst. These guys are all competing to have Calypso…

Sony Closing PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita on July 2nd

Well, it’s finally happening. PlayStation Store services are finally being brought to an end for PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3. It was only a matter of time, and indeed this is something practically every knew was coming eventually, but it’s still kind of amazing. Once this hits, there are going to be a lot…

Chasing Static Has Real Retro-Chic Going for it!

Making games in a retro style is most definitely nothing new. I mean, just how many 16-bit-ish games are released every year? How many of those have we seen since 2010? A ton. We’ve seen a ton! One would think that we’d be seeing a lot of games mimicking the 64-bit style too, but no….

Ratchet & Clank: Life of Pie Animated Short

Just a few days ago, completely without warning, a 23-minute Ratchet & Clank short aired on Crave, a streaming service in Canada.  Created by the same company who made the 2016 movie, Mainframe Studios, it follows Ratchet and Clank as they stop Dr. Nefarious’ newest scheme, which involves a gun called a Portalizer that can…

Killzone Website is Retired

Sony and Guerilla Games have retired Killzone.com. If you go there right now, all you’ll find is a short notice explaining what services are still active for the most recent Killzone games: Killzone Mercenary and Killzone: Shadowfall. It’s been about 8 years now since the release of Killzone: Shadowfall, so it’s about time I suppose,…

Listmas 2020: Cary’s Most Anticipated Games of 2021

Know that we’ve kicked 2020 out the door for good (though, that’s still questionable, I guess), it’s time for me to take a look into that which may pepper my gaming landscape in 2021. Frankly, my biggest hope for this year is actually obtaining an XBX or a PS5, but neither my Xbox One nor…

Ghost Of Tsushima Gets Surprise Multiplayer Mode

So, it’s been a few weeks since Ghost of Tsushima launched and it’s done quite well for itself. The game has received all kinds of praise, and it’s sold well to boot. One would think that all would be said and done after that, but it turns out that Sucker Punch had other ideas. Instead…
