God of War: Countdown To Launch Complete Video April 20, 2018

I love when publishers host live launch events for games online. It’s a great way for fans and developers to celebrate the imminent launch of a highly-anticipated game and learn some behind the scenes information about its development as the clock ticks forward until midnight. However, since these events tend to start late and can happen at the same time a fan might be out getting the game, it is entirely possible to miss them.

Good news for anyone who missed last night’s God of War launch event or wants to rewatch it, the launch stream for God of War on the PS4 has been archived on the official PlayStation YouTube Channel. Enjoy.

In the future I’d like to see retailers like GameStop broadcast these live streams on their in-store monitors during midnight launch events. Every store has at least one big screen HDTV hanging up on a wall, why don’t they put it to use?

God of War is out now exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

We are days away from the release of God of War on the PS4, and Sony has been releasing a new behind the scenes documentary for the game every day leading up to its launch. Today, we’re going to highlight some of the best documentaries Sony has put out to date. First, let’s take a closer look at one of the game’s major enemies, the troll.

Now let’s take an in-depth look at something I’m really interested in. A lot has obviously happened to Kratos after the events of God of War III, a game people who completed it were surprised to discover he survived.

We will post up more videos as the game ramps up for release on Thursday night. Stay tuned for more God of War content throughout the week!

Shenmue 1 and 2 Coming to Xbox One, PC and PS4 April 13, 2018

Sega made an enormous announcement late tonight and I had to fire up the site to share it with all of you. The Sega Dreamcast cult classics Shenmue I & II is being remastered for modern game consoles and PC!

Shenmue was considered to be the greatest game made for one of the most beloved game systems of all time. It is still recognized as groundbreaking for a lot of features that have since become standard in games for its open world day/night cycle and extreme environment interactivity. Shenmue II was released on the Xbox in the US and continued that tradition, but many purists believed the original Dreamcast version of the game that was looked better. I’ll post an article covering more about that later.

The remastered edition of both games will offer custom resolution support, choice of modern or original control schemes, and an updated interface. Oh and did I mention the game will include both English and Japanese voice over? Take a look!

Shenmue I & II is coming to PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Tales from IT – Restoring a MacBook Without Bootable Media April 12, 2018

Maniac is frequently asked to fix other people’s broken computers and electronics, including products made by Apple. Typically, when he’s had to reset virus infected computers to their factory defaults, if the computer cannot perform an internet recovery his clients need to provide him the computer’s installation media. He was disheartened to discover that media was lost, and unlike Microsoft, Apple does not offer official downloads of their older computers’ essential system software on their website.

At this point, Maniac realized he needed help that only an Apple Genius can offer. Only two Apple stores currently exist in Maniac’s home state, a state with a population of several million people. Could the Apple Store help him, and how? Watch below and find out!

God of War Fight Your Way Trailer April 10, 2018

We’ve got slightly over a week until the release of the highly-anticipated PS4 exclusive game, God of War. This week, Sony offered to showcase what the game’s character progression system is going to look like. Building and increasing Kratos’s skills has always been a staple of God of War, and I’m glad to see that tradition will continue with this game.

Unlockable skills based on in-game earned experience points? It’s so nice to see a recent triple-a game released with a in-depth single-player campaign and no microtransactions. See you next week, Kratos!

God of War is coming exclusively to the PS4 on April 20th, 2018.

Big announcement guys, we just received word we will be going to ConnectiCon 2018! ConnectiCon is a yearly fan convention held at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. We’ve attended a few of them over the years and had a blast. The event practically takes over the downtown Hartford area and hosts a cosplay competition, video game and CCG tournaments, tabletop games, professional fan panels, and a huge vendor area. There’s also the chance to be part of a Q&A with this year’s invited actors and internet personalities.

We’d like to thank everyone at ConnectiCon for inviting us to the event! Look for us out on the show floor!

The Score of God of War April 6, 2018

We’re fourteen days away from the release of God of War on the PlayStation 4, and Sony has been cranking the promotion of the game up to eleven. Today, they released an all-new behind the scenes featurette on the game which details the underlying inspiration of the game’s music. This time, the game’s music will have lyrics based in Old Norse as opposed to Latin from previous games. Given the new mythology for this new game, I’m not surprised. Let’s take a closer look into what it takes to make the music for a game like this.
