PlayStation Classic Video and Details

Yesterday Sony joined the classic mini console craze by announcing the release of the PlayStation Classic which will come pre-loaded with 20 original PlayStation games. The PlayStation classic is set to release this Holiday season (December 3) and will cost $99.99 USD ($129.99 CAN, $149.99 AUD). This new retro-gaming console looks exactly like a scaled down version of the original gray PlayStation released back in 1994. The major problem with these classic consoles that have become so popular lately, is actually trying to find one in stores. However, the PlayStation classic is currently up for pre-order right now and we have the info on how you can reserve yours. 

Rick and Morty Anime Opening

This is easily one of the most creative and well made fan animations that I have seen for Rick and Morty so far. While most of us are patiently waiting for the fourth season of Rick and Morty to air, the fine folks over at Malec have made an awesome anime style opening for the show. Honestly this is just bad ass. The creators obviously know their anime openings and if I didn’t know any better I would think that this was the real deal. The way the music begins is a great mix of the original show theme and some awesome J-Pop. Honestly this is just a really cool tribute to a really great show. If you are a fan of anime and/or Rick and Morty then you will definitely love this short animation. 

Captain Marvel Official Trailer

Ever since the final scene in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel fans have been waiting to see how Captain Marvel will fit into this whole cinematic universe. Some of the major questions that fans have been asking are; what is her story and how powerful is she really going to be? We don’t necessarily get answers to these questions quite yet. However, we do finally get our first look at the up coming Captain Marvel movie and I have to admit that it looks pretty awesome. Personally I have never really been too invested in Captain Marvel as a character in the Marvel comics, but I am very excited to see this movie and what role she will play in the follow up Avengers movie. 

Poster and Release Date for Castlevania Season 2

Old school Nintendo fans and anime lovers alike were united in their praise of the Netflix original anime series, Castlevania. If you haven’t watched the first season yet I highly recommend that you do. The series itself was really well done. The animation was great, the characters were well fleshed out, the story was mysterious but also exciting. Overall it was just really entertaining and left us wanting more. I think the biggest complaint was that it was really short. Season 1 consisted of only 4 episodes and worst of all fans were left believing that it would be a solid couple of years before we got more episodes. However, Netflix has made sure that is not the case and dropped an awesome new poster and release date for Castlevania’s second season.

Cyberpunk 2077 Gameplay Reveal

If you like cyborg butts and boobs then Cyberpunk 2077 might just be the game for you. Honestly though this game is definitely dark and gritty but also looks amazing. In fact, this might just be one of the most ambitious projects that we have seen since No Man’s Sky and we all know how that turned out…at least at launch. Today an almost hour long gameplay walk through was released and this game looks absolutely amazing. However, the developers stressed several times throughout this video that what is being shown is not the completed game, and everything we see could be subject to change. Now unlike No Man’s Sky I definitely appreciate them telling us this rather than saying these things are set in stone.

Injustice 2 FREE to play on Xbox One

NetherRealm Studios’ hit fighting game featuring all of your favorite DC super heroes and villains is free to play on Xbox One. If you haven’t tried it out yet or just don’t currently own it, then you’re in luck because you can now download and play it free of charge. The official Injustice 2 Twitter account announced today that Xbox One owners are able to download the game during their free trial period though they did not say how long the trail period would last. I would think that it would at least be through the weekend. Still, free is free and even if it was only for a couple days it might be worth the download. Injustice 2 is currently selling for $24 for the standard edition or $30 for the Legendary Edition.

D.Va Overwatch Short – “Shooting Star”

Finally D.Va gets her own animated short! Once again Blizzard has delivered us some more awesome Overwatch content and this time it’s another animated short featuring our favorite mech pilot D.Va. Sometimes blizzard has a way of pulling on our heart strings with these shorts, but don’t worry you won’t need the tissues for this one. This Overwatch animated short is titled “Shooting Star” and it definitely fits D.Va’s character. Of course the animation quality is on point once again and honestly Blizzard could give Disney a run for their money. Personally I would love to see a feature length Overwatch movie done in this style of animation, just as long as the original voice actors would be willing to do it also.  

Red Dead Redemption 2 Gameplay Trailer

With every passing month I get more and more excited for the games that are coming out this year. One of the games at the top of my list, and lets face it most gamer’s lists, is of course Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2. This is definitely one of the most anticipated games of the last few years let alone this year. We’ve gotten plenty of glimpses of the game’s cinematics but we have really been wanting to see is actual gameplay footage. Well last week Rockstar finally came through for us and delivered a 6 minute long trailer featuring some amazing looking gameplay footage. Already Red Dead Redemption 2 is looking like it is going to be an instant classic much like it’s predecessor.
