Games with Gold Deals March 24th 2015

If you're a wrestling fan, this is your week for Games with Gold. There's a bunch of WWE stuff on sale this week via Games with Gold, but there's also a little something for those who have been looking for an excuse to pick-up Evolve. Both the standard edition and the "Digital Deluxe" version of the 4v1 hunting... simulator(?) are on sale for 20% off!

The full details on the deals that Microsoft/Xbox are offering (both platforms) are detailed for you below!


Radial Dialogue - Episode 11 - Twitch, Security and Skin

Welcome, fans! There’s plenty of talk and rage on the most recent episodes as Jen and I dig through a couple of stories that we had things to say about. Twitch was attacked recently, causing everyone to need a change of their passwords… good thing they don’t store your credit card information!

PlayStation Retrospective: Network Adaptor

Online gaming on PC has been around forever, but it took quite a while for it to be the norm on consoles. Older generations tried it ala Sega Channel and other outlets, but it really wasn't until the Network Adapter for Playstation 2 arrived in 2002 which is when it started to hit its stride and lay the groundwork for Xbox Live and PSN moving forward. If you're newer to gaming or younger than myself, you simply might take online gaming for granted. Hell, you might even take being online for granted also.

Say It Ain't So - Kojima Leaving Konami

Things have apparently come to a head between Kojima Productions and Konami, and we might be seeing them implode for good.

An inside source reported earlier today that after Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Kojima Productions will be breaking off from Konami for good.

More Content Coming to Evolve - Not Just Skins

Are you already getting the hang out of the available hunters on Evolve since it dropped? Well, good news: it's time to try something new.
2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios have announced that on March 31, they're throwing down four brand-new hunter classes to play, as well as one new monster. The better news is that if you don't purchase it, you'll still be able to play with or against them online, so you won't be delegated to the dark corners of the Internet for people who don't buy DLC.

PlayStation Retrospective: Jade Cocoon

Does anyone here remember Poké-Mania? These days, Pokémon clones are a dime a dozen. Just log onto iStore or Google Play and I'm sure you'll find another soulless Pokémon clone with poorly designed monsters. But back in the tail-end of the '90s, the subgenre of Pokémon clones was just beginning, and back then they actually tried. Some games had their charms like Monster Rancher. Others like Digimon, had awesome monsters, but failed to find their footing in the gaming world.

New Nintendo Hardware Hinted

A scant two and a half years into the Wii U's admittedly worrisome sales life, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata is starting to leak ideas about Nintendo's "next hardware", codenamed NX. 

Come on fellas, even the Dolphin is more creative than that.

As far as the actual hardware though (which was asked about at a shareholders' meeting), Iwata-san made a point of saying that Nintendo was "not at a dead end of any kind in which we are out of ideas", and made a point of saying "we first make sure that those who have already purchased out platforms are satisfied." 

PlayStation Retrospective: War of the Monsters

Developed by the team that brought us Twisted Metal - I was sold. That is, literally, all it took for me to purchase this PlayStation 2 title without ever hearing about it prior to seeing it on the store shelf back in 2003. That little logo (of the now defunct) Incognito team was the biggest selling point for me. Probably one of the best decisions I've made in my life! (I've had a pretty tame life.)

Quipbox is Jackbox Games' Kickstarter Project

Every second week or so, I host a board-game night at my house. This has served as an excuse for me, personally, to break out of the video game routine and try something a little different. However, after the release of the Jackbox Party Pack (a collection of games from YDKJ makers Jackbox) it seems all anyone wants to play anymore is Drawful.

Ermac's New Fatality Leaves the Internet Gutted

Mortal Kombat's history is one built on controversy. At the very dawn of violent video games, it was hassled by all kinds of concerned parties for its use of blood, violence, and inclusion of features like the Fatalities. Of course, we've come a long way since then. Games these days are far, far worse than what we were so concerned about back then... so Mortal Kombat itself needs to keep upping the ante.

Xenoverse Receives First DLC Pack Tomorrow

If you've been following the site the last little while, you know that I'm a fan of Dragon Ball Xenoverse. I gave it a pretty favourable review and I haven't been able to stop talking about it on Radial Dialogue. Further, people who ask me what I'm playing these days always get an earful about my current addiction.

PS Retrospective: Twisted Metal Series

To kick-off PlayStation month, we're going to look back at the series that made me the loyal PlayStationite I am today: Twisted Metal. Twisted Metal not only secured my purchase of the first gen PlayStation, it also began my obsession with vehicular combat games.

Not sure what vehicular combat games are? Well, that's because they are an endangered genre these days. But back in the mid-to-end 90's, it was all the craze. Carmageddon, Interstate 76, Vigilante 8... all these existed because of Twisted Metal.

Radial Dialogue - Episode 8 - Powers on PSN and Titanfall DLC

Wow, apparently I am terrible at things. I seriously need to consider putting a secretary on the payroll because I simply overlooked the reposting of Radial Dialogue Episode 8 on the homesite this past Wednesday. Apologies for those that watch it here! I would make some joke about "make sure to follow us on Twitch" but it seems a little tacky, all things considered.

Harmonix Taking Requests for Rock Band 4

As mentioned in Adam's subsequent editorial, on a few episodes of Radial Dialogue, we're pretty excited about Rock Band 4. We knew it was coming, but it didn't hinder the excitement the actual (official) announcement brought us in the slightest. So while we appreciate that maybe not everyone is hyped up for the fourth instalment of Harmonix's Guitar Hero successor...

Bravely Second Gets a Japanesse System's Trailer

One of our team's favourites from last year was the Square Enix FF-spiritual-successor Bravely Default. It won us over with its simple yet deep gameplay and retro nostalgia hit of classic JRPG. It was something that the majority of our staff has dedicated ridiculous amounts of hours to, chiefly Adam who drained a bunch of extra time into getting all of the goodies the game has to offer.

Rainbow Six: Siege Alpha Signups Available on PC

One of the biggest, and most welcomed, surprises of last year's E3 reveals was the upcoming continuation of the Rainbow Six franchise, Siege. I say "biggest surprise" not because no one saw a sequel coming from the franchise, but because it was something unlike anything from the series past. It's a game that seems to focus on multiplayer co-operation in the vein of 2015's early starter Evolve.

Powers [TV Review]

I know what you're thinking: "Why in the hell is Casey writing a television review for a video game site?" Well, because we already did a review on Xbox's show (Halo: Nightfall) and because I really want to talk about what PlayStation is doing for Brian Michael Bendis' Powers: 

DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

If you had not played DmC Devil May Cry on last gen consoles when it originally released then this Definitive Edition is a no-brainer; the gameplay is still fun and holds up well. If you did previously play it though, the big question is "should you rebuy?" I'd say yes simply because while the graphics have been updated slightly, but the biggest improvements come in the form of listening to fan feedback and the wish list of features requested, which is delivered in bulk. 

The Pros: 

+Keeps the same great gameplay as the original release but improved with new modifiers.
+New features such as lock-on and turbo mode make the game feel refreshing.
+All DLC included is a bonus, especially the Virgil campaign.

The Cons: 

-Bump to 1080p / 60fps, but seemingly no work on the muddy textures, so it can look dated.
-Certain cutscenes ignore your chosen DLC skin and will show Dante in default clothing instead briefly. Rating : 

So, let's get this out of the way first and foremost. There was a small uprising of unhappy fans when DmC originally released because of the new artists style and character designs compared to the original Dante and others in the original games. Because Dante's look was changed too drastically, many fans didn't like the change and possibly didn't give the reboot a chance. Luckily though Capcom did create a fun game by enlisting the help of Ninja theory, known for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (one of my favorite games) and Heavenly Sword.

Portal 2: The Unauthorized Musical Review

Allow me to preface this with a very important statement: I'm of the belief that anyone who creates a new work and manages to produce it should absolutely be proud of themselves. That can be said for anyone anywhere who accomplishes this in an era where new theatre is a difficult sell, especially in Vancouver. That being said...

Portal is a bit of a mess.

Radial Dialogue - Episode 7 - GTA Online Heists!

Well congratulations everyone, you made it through another Monday! Your reward: Another episode of Radial Dialogue. If you didn't get the chance to watch us this morning, live, then you can rewatch the show on YouTube as of... nnnnnow. That's right; the whole show in its entirety is up for you (conveniently placed in an embedded playlist at the bottom of this article).
