PSX 2015 Preview: Chasm (PS4)

I’m going to come right out and say this; I’m very much inclined to like Chasm. The game has a lot going for it; it’s a 2D action-platformer with gated progression and RPG elements, it has a gameplay style that’s reminiscent of 2D Castlevania games, and it’s pretty challenging. I’ve said this many times before in the past, but I absolutely love games that embrace the sensibilities of classic game series like Metroid and Castlevania. Yes, I’m talking about Metroidvania games. The second I heard about Chasm, I knew I was going to like it a lot.

A mutant surprise – in new TMNT 2 Trailer

Back in 1990 we were treated to a gem of a movie – the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It didn’t take long before the rumors started about the sequel: The Secret of the Ooze. More specifically about the possibility of a couple of mutant henchmen. What were we hoping for? Well Bebop and Rocksteady of course. And what did we get, aside from a Ninja Rap dance? Tokar and Rahzar – a mutant dog and snapping turtle.

It’s more then 20 years later and with the rebooted TMNT we are finally getting to see our favorite mutants. Oh and did I mention Casey Jones?

PSX 2015 Preview: Tinertia (PS4)

Tinertia is a tough as nails precision platformer with one huge caveat; there is no “jump” button. In Tinertia you play as Weldon, a little robot with a rocket launcher for an arm, who happens to be explosion proof. Weldon is stranded on a planet that’s filled with horrible mazes that are lousy with spikes and lasers, and the only way to get through it all is to master the art of rocket jumping.

PSX 2015 Preview: Strike Vector EX (PS4)

The second annual PlayStation Experience was home to a bevy of games coming to PlayStation 4, PS3, and the PS Vita. One of my overall favorite games of the show was Strike Vector EX for PS4. Developed by Ragequit Corporation, Strike Vector was originally released on PC back in January of 2014 to generally positive reviews. The game offered fast paced aerial combat and combined elements from games like Ace Combat and Star Fox all while embracing a style that was reminiscent of Robotech. And it is absolutely gorgeous to look at.

Review and Preview – Empowered Special #7: Pew Pew Pew!

The laser blasts fly as costumed crime fighter Empowered battles a series of puzzlingly rage-fueled supervillains, each one armed with a bigger and more destructive “supergun” than the last. Ah, but might our long-suffering heroine’s own buried resentments and repressed bitterness prove to be her deadliest foes? (SPOILER: Yes, pretty much.)

A new, stand-alone issue of Empowered, Adam Warren’s sexy superhero series, is out next week, and this one is written and drawn by Adam himself! Click the jump for preview pages and a review of Empowered Special #7: Pew Pew Pew!
