Hands On Impression – Transformers Devastation

Hands On Impression – Transformers Devastation

I’ve been attending San Diego Comic Con International since the late 90s and there is one booth that always seems to be the first stop. The Hasbro booth is not only one of the largest booths, but you can’t help but stop and admire the rather large collection of Transformers as they are more then meets the eye.

While doing my routine stop, I happened to notice something a little different this year, there has been TVs in the past, but this one featured Platinum Games: Transformers Devastation. Even better, it happened to be a playable demo. Has Platinum Games made the ultimate Transformers game, or are we looking at another Legend of Korra.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches concurrently on consoles and PC

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launches concurrently on consoles and PC

In a recent press release, Konami has announced that the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is being moved from September 15th to September 1st. This release date coincides with the console release date, so for the first time ever, a Metal Gear Solid game is coming to all platforms at the same time. This doesn’t effect console gamers at all, but it’s indeed something that PC gamers are sure to be happy about.

Considering the controversy that’s been surrounding MGSV: TPP, it’s great to see that fans of the series can all play the game at launch. And the biggest perk for PC gamers is that The Phantom Pain’s prologue, Ground Zeroes, will be released on the same day for free.  Although, the one draw back with this moved release date for PC means that Metal Gear Online (the game’s multiplayer mode) will take a bit longer to actually launch. So when the game released in a few weeks, only the single player mode will be available. Hit the jump to check out the full press release!

SDCC 2015 – Disney Infinity 3.0

The video game industry has become one of the most popular and biggest moneymakers of the last few decades. Each passing year many games outdo movies in terms of money, and with new and bigger consoles and platforms being released it’s clear that this is an industry that is here to stay, even going as far as to get their own conventions or just take over certain parts of other ones: like the San Diego Comic-Con. A whole section of the floor is now dedicated to just the video game industry giving fans a chance to see new products, play new game demos and even meet the creators of their favorite games.

SDCC 2015 – Ken Masters revealed for Street Fighter 5

San Diego Comic Con 2015 is in full swing and although the biggest event in geek culture brings a slew of announcements from all parts of the nerdisphere, there’s one thing that’s really got me on the hype train.
