This year’s ConnectiCon was quite a ride.  Maniac and Princess Angel were fortunate enough to attend this year’s show, and report on a lot of the event straight from the show.  In fact, we had to shoot a forty minute video just to detail our experiences at the event!  In it, Maniac talks about the panels we saw, the celebrities we interviewed, and the events we witnessed.  You never know, he may tell a story about a well known show that you had never heard before.

Special thanks to the ConnectiCon organizers for inviting us to the event and for letting us bring you all this fantastic ConnectiCon content to the site!

Well, right after the flood of all the news coming out for The Last of Us: Remastered, we’ve got one more video for you.  As you may know, the game has been released today, and we picked up a copy of the game for ourselves.  If you’re planning to pick up the game at retail, here’s a good look at what is inside the game’s box.  I’ll let you judge for yourselves if it’s worth the $49.99 US price tag.

A year after the original release of The Last of Us on the Playstation 3, Sony got the two lead actors from the game, Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson, together again for a candid interview in anticipation of the release of The Last of Us: Remastered on the Playstation 4.  In the interview, they talk about practically everything they had to go through to get the roles of Joel and Ellie and how they worked together during the game’s development.  It’s a great interview and you can tell there’s a great friendship between these two actors.  If you’re a fan of the game, or just really looking forward to picking up the PS4 version later today, give it a watch.

It’s been ten years since the release of my favorite game in the Halo franchise, Halo 2.  To celebrate its inclusion with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the game is getting a complete face lift on par with the enhancements the first Halo game received for the Xbox 360 game, Halo: Anniversary in 2011.  Just how good is this game going to look?  Take a look at some of the game’s cinematics, redone by the people at Blur Studios.

It feels like 2004 all over again.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming November 2014 exclusively to the Xbox One.
