The PlayStation Vita suffered a bit of a drought this past summer but now with new releases like Killzone: Mercenary & Dragon’s Crown on the shelves and YS just on the horizon, we finally have some new retail games to play. Well, Sony is upping the ante for those of us looking for digital games with the announcement that Grasshopper Manufacture’s 2012 shoot’em up Sine Mora will be available free of charge for PlayStation Plus subscribers starting tomorrow, provided you’ve got the space on your memory card.
Bullet hell shooters are nothing new but Sine Mora changes up the established formula with a different kind of health mechanic. Instead of a health meter, Sine Mora challenges players to complete stages within a given time limit and to add just a little bit more sweat to your brow – every time you take a hit the time limit just a little bit. With its colourful graphics and 5 different modes it sounds like Sine Mora has a lot of content and you can’t really beat the price of free!
Sine Mora was originally released in the Fall of 2012 and has ported to the PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox 360, PC, Android / IOS and most recently the Ouya.

It looks like copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts are already out in the wild. Considering the game is due out in a week’s time, this should come as a surprise to no one. What is a bit of a surprise, is the reveal of Extinction Mode, a sort of replacement for the ever popular Zombies mode that challenges you to battle off waves of extra terrestrials.
The confirmation of Extinction mode comes after several screen grabs of the mode made their way around the internet over the weekend. You won’t be battling the alien hordes right away mind you, unlike Zombies – Extinction is unlocked after you’ve completed the first five campaign missions in Ghosts.
Check out a brief trailer and official description after the jump! (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, News, PC, Sony Tags: Activision, Announcement, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Extinction Mode, PS3, PS4, Xbox One
A collection of Marvel Super Heroes from a number of franchises, including the X-Men, the Avengers, Fantastic Four & more swing into action with the launch of Lego Marvel Super Heroes on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, 3DS and other platforms. Developed by long time LEGO videogame series veterans, Traveler’s Tales, this latest game pits the like of Thor, Iron Man, and Spider-Man against villains like Doctor Doom, Mystique, Locki and the Red Skull. All told over 100 members of Marvel’s finest are playable in this latest title.
I think the game is quite adorable, surprisingly the Heli-carrier and New York City skyline look rather detailed, shying away a bit from the LEGO franchise’s established cartoon nature, but don’t worry because the scenery still seems to be full of hundreds of bolts ready for collection! Like most modern LEGO titles, Traveler’s Tales has incorporated voice acting into their games, which was established with last year’s LEGO City Undercover while maintaining that unique whimsical charm they seem to bring to all of their games.
Check out a launch trailer after the jump. Next-Gen versions are also expected out on November 15th on PlayStation 4 and November 22nd for the Xbox One. (more…)Posted in: Microsoft, Nintendo, PC, Sony Tags: LEGO: Marvel Super Hereos, Tell Tale Games, Warner Bros Interactive
The long running Aliens franchise is set to return to our living rooms next year in the form of a brand new video game being developed by the studio behind Total War, Creative Assembly. Titled Alien: Isolation, this new first person shooter has reportedly been in development for some time for both current gen (PS3 / Xbox 360) & next-gen (PC / PS4/ Xbox One) platforms and will hopefully not end up in a similar PR nightmare that Aliens: Colonial Marines became during its launch this past spring.

With our review for Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness just around the corner, I wanted to address fans who aren’t quite sure of what they’ve seen on the store shelves as of late. Disgaea D2, or Disgaea Dimension 2 as it’s known in Japan, is a direct sequel to the original title released ten years ago. Though even if you’ve never played a game in the series before, you won’t be left out in the dark. It’s easy to get into. Spoilers follow, but if you’re looking for reasons to pick it up, read on!
