The “Disney Infinity” series is about to embark on a journey to a galaxy far, far away. With the release of “Disney Infinity 3.0,” Disney interactive’s toys-to-life game adds the “Star Wars” franchise to its expansive roster of beloved characters. The series, which features action figures that come alive onscreen, has been building to this point since its debut in 2013.

 

John Vignocchi, Vice President of Production at Disney Interactive, talks what makes “3.0” so different from the first two installments, and the future of “Star Wars.”

MegaManCoverRemember the “Mega Man Anniversary Collection” that came out for GameCube and PS2? Well get ready to buy those games all over again for the current gen consoles. The “Mega Man Legacy Collection” includes the first six installments as a digital download all for the bargain price of $14.99.

 

A lot has changed since 2004, which is when “Anniversary Collection” was released. We’ve made the jump to high definition, we expect retro games to have save state support and we suffer from the unquenchable thirst for trophies and achievements. Fortunately, Mega Man has evolved with the times. The “Mega Man Legacy Collection” includes all of the above.

'Until Dawn' review - cheap thrills

Monday, 24 August 2015 11:00

 

UntilDawn First image still“Until Dawn,” the horror-thriller from Supermassive Games, is going to do its best to make horror fans squirm, scream and jump. It’s a choose-your-own-adventure game that changes key events depending on decisions players make along the way.

 

The story takes place atop the snowy and secluded Mt. Washington. A group of eight friendly teenagers head up for their annual get-together. It’s a year after the previous visit went horribly wrong when two members of their group went missing and were never found. Now the group has returned in the hopes to forget about the tragic events. The game changes lead characters throughout the game, giving players a glimpse into their personality.

Last Friday, “Gjallarhorn” was a trending topic on Twitter. That’s because the elusive exotic weapon in “Destiny” was being sold by the game’s weekend exotic vendor known as Xur. This is only the second time that has happened since the game’s launch. The first time was the second week of “Destiny’s” in 2014.

 

For those not in the know, the Gjallarhorn is the strongest rocket launcher in the game. It is also extremely rare. If it’s not being sold by Xur, the only way to get one is to receive it by random drop after completing a raid or weekly nightfall strike. In other words, this doesn’t happen often, and it’s completely out of the player’s hands.

Gally3The prayers have been answered for many “Destiny” players, and those who already owned a Gjallarhorn are bound to be a little upset. Weekend vendor Xur is selling the elusive Gjallarhorn rocket launcher.

Personal audio equipment is not an easy purchase. Each headset and microphone comes with its own set of often confusing specs, and such devices are rarely cheap. The decision can drive even the biggest audiophile insane.

 

Blue Microphones has two flagship audio products: The Mo-Fi headphones and the Yeti microphone. The Mo-Fi headphones focus on mobile audio, but can also be used for games. I tried them out and put them through extensive audio tests. Here’s how they fared. The review of the Blackout Yeti follows.

Destiny box artI’m in deep. “Destiny” has me in Crota’s vice-like claws. The journey from level one to 34 is an endless one. I played vanilla “Destiny” at launch, achieved level-20 status and stopped for half a year with no intention of returning. Then, before a guardian could reload a Vestian Dynasty, I purchased the expansions for both consoles, plus the core game a total of three times. How did it come to this? I need to retrace my steps and wade through the financial carnage.

 

I’ll confess my most heinous “Destiny”-related crime. I have spent more than $200 on this game. How is that possible? This is an undoubtedly reasonable question. This isn’t a Candy-Soda-Farm-Garbage Saga that constantly waves its beggar’s cup in your face. No, you have to actually try to do this kind of damage in “Destiny.” I’ll break down my irresponsible spending in easy-to-understand bullet points:

In "Batman: Arkham Knight," Batman is pushed to new levels of anger. Gotham City is under siege again, and the clock is ticking for the Caped Crusader. In the 20-to-30 hours of gameplay, Batman takes that anger out on pretty much anyone who gets in his way. Check out the supercut of game footage to find out just how much Batman hates criminals in his finale of the "Arkham" series.

ArkhamLogoThe Batman-Gotham relationship has been building to this point: “Batman: Arkham Knight.” For years, Batman has crafted his life around the idea that the crime-ridden streets of Gotham weren’t beyond saving. The events of “Arkham Knight” will push Batman to question this adage. He will be challenged both mentally and physically by Scarecrow, the mysterious Arkham Knight and other super villains in ways that have never been portrayed in a video game. This is how Rocksteady’s story of Batman ends.
