The Sexy Brutale: Full House Edition is Coming to PS4

BadLand Games and Tequila Works have teamed up to bring gamers  a full retail release of its upcoming PS4 title The Sexy Brutale: Full House Edition.

The Sexy Brutale for those of you that have never heard of it is NOT whatever it is that came to your mind when you read the title of this article. The Sexy Brutale is actually the name of a casino mansion where a masked ball is taking place. During the course of the ball several murders take place and you (in the role of a priest named  Lafcadio Boone) must solve these crimes by midnight. The game also has a Groundhog Day style twist to it as the day repeats itself until “all the mansion’s dark secrets are revealed.”

PS4 Pro Enhancements Finally Come to Fallout 4

Fallout 4 has received the much anticipated and very needed PS4 Pro update that Bethesda has been promising. While the new update is not quite the high-resolution texture pack that was recently made available on PC (thanks Sony, thanks), it does give players a much prettier sandbox to play in.

Review in Progress: Yakuza 0

The prequel to the long running and best selling Yakuza series was released this week and I am still seeing everything that Yakuza 0 has to offer. There is a lot more here than what you see on the surface so instead of rushing through the game to get the review out on launch day, I am going to delve even deeper and deliver the full review here next week.

I will say that so far I am really impressed with Sega’s latest outing into the Japanese underworld. While there is a lot of focus on hand to hand combat there is a really heavy focus on story which I have really started to get into.

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star Review

  • Publisher: XSeed Games
  • Release Date: 1/17/17
  • Console: PS4, Vita

fate-extella-key-art1

Greetings gamers! We gather here today to celebrate the latest chapter of the Fate/ story line! This time though, instead of fighting a new Holy Grail War, the object is to wrap up remaining business from the old one. While this isn’t the first time an entry in the series has been a continuation instead of the start of something (relatively) new,  it’s been a decent while since the last game in the series came out that didn’t begin at the start of a new war.

Resident Evil VII: biohazard Review

  • Developer: Capcom
  • Publisher: Capcom
  • Platform: PS4, PSVR
  • Release Date: January 24, 2017
  • Single Player

Reviewed on both PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR

While I am a fan of the Resident Evil series I have never actually considered them to be “scary” as a lot of other fans do. Sure zombies dogs suddenly jumping through windows is startling but that’s about it. I have always looked at the series as more of a gruesome action game than actually scary. Recent entries in the series (namely 5 and 6) did more to make Resident Evil more of an action game with fights inside of volcanos, unrealistically muscular characters and yes boulder punching (Resident Evil 5, I can’t make this stuff up). It is safe to say that over the years Resident Evil has strayed far away from its original survival horror roots. That is until now. With Resident Evil 7 Capcom has not only gone back to the roots of the series, they have made a game that literally had me shook all the way until the end.

New Mafia III Update Adds New Outfits For Lincoln

One  complaint many Mafia III players have voiced is the lack of character customization the game has for its main character. While Mafia III‘s star Lincoln Clay does sport different outfits during the course of the game, they happen at predetermined points in the story and it doesn’t happen often. 2K Games released a patch that not only added some bug fixes and improvements, but also added 11 new outfits to choose from.

Super Dungeon Bros.

  • Title: Super Dungeon Bros.
  • Publisher: Wired Production
  • Platform: PS4
  • Release Date: 11/01/2016

I’d like to start this review off by saying that I’m a strong believer of not judging a game by its promo art. That said, promo art exists for a reason, and sometimes, for better or for worse, what you see is exactly what you get. This holds especially true for Super Dungeon Bros. SDB is, in essence a multiplayer dungeon crawler. It can be played solo, but at your own peril; there are countless enemies and the process of taking them all on by one’s self is exhausting and not particularly rewarding. SDB itself is very reminiscent of the Gauntlet series, though with very noticeable differences, namely the cartoon-ish feel of the graphics and the overtly “Bro” theme prominently featured at every turn.

Every now and then, a game comes along that makes me rethink everything I think I know about a given genre. Some of you loyal followers might remember that not horribly long ago, I reviewed a certain bold game that made me rethink my position on modern day sports games, and I was fairly certain that would be the last of the matter; the final athletic-related game that I would give my time to both willingly and repeatedly. But then E3 happened, and I found myself attending at the Maximum Games display and was given a viewing of  and chance to play,this game, and as the opportunist I am, I tried it out. Now, without going into too much detail about what I thought of the E3 version of this game (spoilers: I enjoyed it A LOT, hence this review) let me just say that, despite my disinclination, to most athletic activities, I enjoy snowboarding in real life with the passion one usually reserves for opening presents on one of any of the various gift-giving holidays. So let’s just say that playing Infinite Air captures all of those feelings, and then some.

Exile’s End

  • Title:  Exile’s End 
  • Publisher: XSEED Games
  • Platform: PlayStation 4/PSVita/Wii U (download-only)
  • Release Date: October 25

There’s something about retro-themed games that never really goes out of style; whether it’s a true old-school classic, or something new done in a way that reminds us of the past. Maybe it’s the sense of nostalgia they provide, or maybe it’s the fact that they generally have fairly simple game mechanics that are easy to learn but take time and dedication to master, but there’s an art to finding the delicate balance between blandly simple, enticingly challenging, and frustratingly difficult. And to be perfectly honest, Exile’s End does a nice job finding the midway point on that scale.

PlayStation VR Launch Review Part 1

When the tech world started to fully embrace VR just a few short years ago I couldn’t bring myself to care. I have not been one for trends and have been let down by console peripherals on more than one occasion. I had no intentions on picking up Project Morpheus (now PlayStation VR) when it was first announced and I even deliberately skipped out on testing the headset at several industry events. I finally caved at E3 2015 and decided to see what the PS4’s VR add on could do. I sat down and tested out Rigs, a title I had not heard of at the time. Needless to say after playing it again several times, I preordered a launch bundle as soon as it was possible to do so. Now that the PlayStation VR is finally available and I have had a few days to put that preordered bundle to the test, here are my thoughts on the PSVR itself and some of the games I picked up at launch.

[UPDATE] The title of the game is officially Red Dead Redemption 2 and not the rumored Red Dead Retribution.

Fans of 2010’s Red Dead Redemption have been clamoring for a sequel to Rockstar’s epic western adventure for nearly a decade now.
