So make room for this bad-boy the list of games hasnt been fully revealed but so far Final fantasy 7, tekken 3 and Wild Arms have been confirmed. Now im just waiting for the Mini GameBoy Classic that's 50% smaller than the original with HDMI connector and a 2 foot EXT cable to link other Mini Gameboys!

Burt Reynolds has passes away thursday morning in Florida. I have some fond memories of him in some movies i have seen over the years. May he rest in peace.

General Discussion / My VR addiction.
« on: August 15, 2018, 06:56:03 PM »
It is no secret that i have dabbled in the VR gaming/experience realm now for some time. I bought my PSVR about 6 months after launch i managed to track down a launch bundle, although a bit expensive at that time it was a fun experience and i looked forward to more PSVR games.

As of writing this i currently have 22 physical PSVR games and a smattering of about 12 digital PSVR games most of them are free "experiences"/demo games but fun none the less.

A few months ago i picked up a 2nd (rev.2 model) that had Skyrim VR included for about half the price of the launch bundle. At this point i was hooked. I think this is the future of gaming! And now that i had a 2nd PSVR i could share multiplayer games with my sweetheart!

Before i continue i wish to point out while the PSVR is a good entry VR system (price is hands down best) and the 2 major issues i have encountered are:

1) the PS4 Move controllers don't have a dedicated thumb stick, opting for either using rudimentary button presses from the face buttons or using a tilt mechanic to navigate spaces in "free-roaming" games. Some use the 'Aim' controller which has the thumb sticks, however the controller is in a rifle configuration, so it would not function well in a game like skyrim.

2) the graphics are a bit lacking, unless you have a PS4 Pro.

However rumour has it that Sony is looking to rectify the Move controller issue with an updated model that possibly incorporates a thumb stick. Suffice to say i will probably buy these "MovePlus" to get a better feel for some of the games that are currently using the awkward movement controls.

This past week now marks my 3rd VR purchase. I pulled the trigger on a new VR Ready Gaming PC and Oculus Rift that were on sale at my local big box store (Best Buy) and it was even better than the PSVR in terms of tracking and visual details.

Now i pose the question to you: are you going to make the leap in to VR?

General Discussion / Margot Kidder Passes Away.

For those of you who may remember, Margot was Lois Lane from the 1970's Super Man movies along side Christopher Reeve. Truly a sad day. Rest in Peace Margo.

General Discussion / Escapist Magazine reboot?
« on: August 08, 2018, 11:07:35 AM »
So i know you may not care too much about the video game/ nerd web-magazine, but i enjoy the Zero Punctuation reviews so when i stopped by today to see what Yahtzee had torn in to i was met with a letter from the editor from August 6th, 2018, and its wording made it sound like they were shutting their doors. But i read on and the editor said they are poised to re-release old shows and introduce new ones. Up to this point all they had was Zero Punctuation and a bi-daily blog/editorial. I recall a time when they had a regular update schedule that i actually followed on monday with Unskippable, wednesday's Zero Punctuation, and friday's Movie Bob... also occasionally intermixed with other shows about movies, video games and board games. Will this change signify a revival or a death knell for the ailing web site? Only time will tell.

General Gaming / Severed physical copy Pre-orders!
« on: July 26, 2018, 03:48:42 PM »
So i have spent the last 4 hours refreshing the Play-Asia listing for 'Severed' ensuring i dont miss out on this gem from the PS Vita. I have bought the digital version, but, i love having a physical version especially when its from a local (Toronto) company! Pity this marks the definitive end to the PS Vita as Sony stopped production of the handheld and recently announced that they will stop physical cart production too. Tis a sad day for us Vita users if only they didnt make proprietary cards and memory the Vita would have probably beat the 3DS.

General Gaming / CBC mini-documentaries about video games!
« on: June 20, 2018, 06:00:22 PM »
How about some good old fashioned Video Game History from the good old Canadian Broadcasting Corporation? Its not bad, about 10 minutes per episode, and you can learn a few interesting facts about them gosh darn vija gaems!

General Gaming / BRAWLOUT: Super Smash Bros. Knock-off?
« on: June 04, 2018, 11:03:05 AM »
I went to my local EB games and while browsing the rack i came across a pre-order for a game called Brawlout... i automatically saw it was a SSB knock off by the description and pictures on the back... but then in 2 of the photos i noticed an oddly familiar set of characters: Juan from Guacamelee and Drifter From Hyperlight Drifter. As you may know i have wanted to see Juan in SSB because his move set in the Guacamelee game would fit in perfectly. Its good to see he's getting some SSB practice.

General Gaming / You know what needs a remastered edition....?
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:12:46 PM »
So i was reading through some older posts and our good friend Hito once mentioned; "this gen is the king of remasters". So in light of that, what games would you want to see get resurrected for this generation?
The game may have been released only in a specific country, or on a failing system, or maybe just has been a long time and an updated version needs to come out.

Our dear friend 'Fran', who made the totally awesome 'UNEPIC' game tried to get some crowd funding for his next game 'AFRAID', sadly it looks like there was not that much interest in it and he's going to have to find a different route to get the cash to keep the game going.

Here's the Kickstarter if you are interested:

General Gaming / MOSS physical copy coming to a store near you!
« on: May 12, 2018, 11:27:01 AM »
For those of you who own a PSVR; you need no introduction as to what Moss is.
However there are some of you who refuse to allow VR technology in to your life.
Hopefully one day you will learn of it's wonderful and amazing world, and one can only hope that Moss will be the game you try.

You play as Quill, an adorable little mouse that you control in a 3rd person perspective, both you and Quill navigate and help each other to solve puzzles and even combat. You use the gamepad to move Quill around the terrain while you manipulate it to give her an path, or reveal puzzle components to keep you two moving along the various locations.

If there was ever a time to get a PSVR and a specific game, a physical or digital copy of Moss is definitely the reason hop over to your local shop and get one!

Check out the company home page here to get your copy:

Movies, Tv, Anime and Music / Aggretsko: ode to millennials.
« on: May 06, 2018, 09:35:56 PM »
So recently Netflix put out a new show called Aggretsko. Suffice to say this is basically what if Hello Kitty was forced to work a sucky office job? It deals with how us young folks have a hard time getting in and dealing with a changing workplace. It funny and endearing and in some aspects dead on about how the world is for anyone that has a job now a days.
