PlayStation 4 And The Return Of Sony [E3 2013]

The day had finally come in which it was time for Sony to step up to the plate; amounting to what was the ultimate do or die moment.  While not on the teetering cusp they once were during the early days of the PlayStation 3, Sony nonetheless had a lot to prove with the showing of the PlayStation 4 at E3 2013.

Sony Preps Two New Invizimals Games

Those who are fans of the franchise may have seen this coming, but Sony and developer Novarama have finally revealed the latest installment of the Invizimals franchise.

Batman Returns In Two Brand New Arkham Video Games

As expected, and long rumored, WB Games has announced the next entry in the Batman Arkham video game series. Titled Batman: Arkham Origins, the next entry in the rather successful Batman video game franchise will take us on an early adventure in the Dark Knight’s career, not so much that he was still wet behind the ears but had yet to meet some of his soon to be lifelong enemies.

Project Versus J/J-Stars Victory Debut Footage Released

Fans of anime and manga may be eagerly anticipating Project Versus J and now we have our first look at the project.  A bit scarce on game footage as it was only a mere commercial and not a full-blown media reveal,  things are shaping up to be good for the new cross-franchise brawler from Namco Bandai.

Acquire Reveals The Persona Clone That Is Mind 0 [Update]

2013 may be a better year for the PlayStation Vita since yet another game for the platform has been revealed.  After teasing us last week with a site that led people to believe The Last Guy was set to return (which was a dumb thing to think), Acquire has revealed the new action-dungeon crawler Mind 0.

Disney Epic Mickey: The Power Of Two Arriving On PS Vita. Why Is This Happening?

Likely ending up to be the most befuddling announcement made this year, barring of course we get another $599 moment from Sony, Disney has revealed that Epic Mickey is once again returning. 

Gran Turismo 6 May Not Appear On PlayStation 4 [Rumor]

Something could be amiss in the world of Gran Turismo which may not please the many members of the racing elite.  After the stumbling that Gran Turismo 5 went through in part to a shoddy online infrastructure and gamers being less than happy about certain elements, the next installment in Polyphony Digital’s ode to racing may arrive without the next-gen sheen that we all expected it would.

New PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale DLC Includes A Space Engineer and A God

Despite SuperBot Entertainment and Sony parting ways out of nowhere, the DLC plans for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale aren’t being given the boot – at least for now.  After the arrival of the Fury Level and the arrival of Kat (Gravity Rush) and Emmett (Starhawk) as playable characters, PS All-Stars is set to receive yet another new level mash-up and two more characters.

Chimpact [PlayStation Mobile Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Providing an almost puzzle like take on the platforming genre, Chimpact is a fairly straightforward and pleasant PlayStation Mobile game that thankfully doesn’t falter with its focus on touch controls. The amount of content within the game somewhat bleeds together as things are similar, despite the addition of secondary content which has only minimal effects on the experience, but as a simple PSM game Chimpact is worth your time if you just want to have an easy going gaming experience.

The Pros: 

+ Graphics are lush in their crispness and how fluid everything is.
+ Levels have some nice variety to them along with a steadying rise in difficulty.
+ Price point is good for what the game offers.

The Cons: 

- Gameplay could’ve used some more interaction within the environment to help deepen things.
- Touch controls are slightly sensitive and it doesn’t help that the game lacks a tutorial.
- The chimps have no character to them that makes them appealing other than their cute facade.

Partaking in a bit of light-hearted gaming is always good for the soul since endlessly playing action games or trying to do a perfect lap on a particular course can ultimately eat away at our gaming souls. So what better way to let loose and relax a bit than with a new PlayStation Mobile game in which we send a cute chimp flying. No, Super Monkey Ball has not gone the PSM route as a completely original game has arrived in the form of Chimpact.
