Today’s announcement of Need for Speed Rivals being added to the vault in the next few weeks had me thinking back on my first month of service and I felt it was time to convey my thoughts about the service. When EA first announced their new subscription based platform called EA Access, I was moderately apprehensive about whether or not I would subscribe. The initial offerings from “The Vault” (which is where the full free to play games are housed) were rather meek with just FIFA 14, Madden 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4. Admittedly, the summer doldrums with nothing new coming out for at least 4 weeks and the paltry price tag of just $30 for the year convinced me that I should sign up and download Battlefield and perhaps give FIFA a shot despite my dislike for professional soccer. What I found was that FIFA is a damn good game. I am pleasantly surprised at how deep the game was and how much fun I had. Couple that with a few friends that got me playing online with them. It’s killed some late nights and rainy afternoons. Another nice added bonus of being a subscriber is you also get early access to new games and demos. For example – Starting this week, I’ll be able to get 6hrs of playtime with NHL 2015 (The demo is absolutely...Read More
Here we are folks – September. I had a truly awesome(and busy) summer. The long drought is finally over and the busy season of game launches is finally upon us. This year’s game launches practically has 1 game a week that I’m interested in right until December and that started with the release of Diablo 3 – Ultimate Evil Edition. Basically it’s the same game that was released for the PC and Xbox 360/PS3 last year but that’s just on the surface. This version of Diablo III is a far more robust and rewarding experience this time around. For starters, we have the obvious expansion “Reaper of Souls” which continues the story right after your hero dispatches Diablo and must now fight Malthael who is hell bent on absorbing the 7 Prime Evils souls contained within the Black Soulstone. Basically – he wants to rule the world and cause all kinds of grief for all mankind. The next improvement comes from the Loot 2.0 system which was introduced to the PC version of Diablo 3 last year with the expansion pack. It GREATLY improves on the frequency of Rare/Set/Unique item drops making the constant hunt for new and improved weapons/armor all the more exciting. A higher level cap has also been introduced bringing it up to 70 from 60, some revamped skills, a graphical upgrade in the form of...Read More
El Mayimbe from Latino-Review has tweeted that we could well see fan favorite The Black Panther make his Big Screen debut in Captain America 3 due out May 2016 in what will no doubt be a head to head blood bath with Superman vs. Superman. While The Black Panther’s involvement is still just a rumor, to me it makes a whole lot of sense to have him there in advance of setting up the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What do you guys thinks?...Read More
The 3rd and final installment of the highly acclaimed game “Arkham” series was announced yesterday and with it, came a very cool trailer. The trailer, while cinematic in nature, is absolutely stunning. The character models look to be more realistic in proportions, we get a glimpse of Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Two-Face and…THE FREAKING BATMOBILE! Yes, this time around, the Batmobile..or maybe Tumbler(it looks very reminiscent of the Nolan Tumbler) is in fact a drive-able vehicle. Rocksteady didn’t release a concrete release date but it is confirmed to be hitting XBox One, PS4 and PCs sometime in...Read More
The highly anticipated sequel to Plants vs. Zombies ..aptly names “Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare” is officially out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 Consoles.
