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. 

Henry Cavill to play Geralt in Netflix Witcher series

It’s official! Henry Cavill has been cast in the lead role as Geralt of Rivia in the up coming Witcher Netflix series. So personally I thought it was crazy when Superman himself Henry Cavill said that he wanted to play Geralt last month. Honestly I wasn’t sure if that would be a good fit for him but it doesn’t matter what I think because the producers of the series seem to think it’s a great idea. As far as his look goes he just seems a bit too bulky to play Geralt. Sure Geralt is pretty cut in the games but he’s a bit more slim than Henry Cavill. Of course he could always lose a bit of his mass but still, there is just something about his face that doesn’t seem to quite match up. 

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.

DOOM Eternal Gameplay Video

So for those of you that weren’t aware Bethesda announced their sequel to the 2016 hit DOOM at E3 2018. Well a couple days ago they released a 20 minute gameplay video at QuakeCon for the new DOOM Eternal game, and it looks even more intense than any of other games that has come before it. Personally I am a huge fan of the DOOM franchise and really enjoyed the last one that came out. I played it a lot on PS4 and even streamed it quite a bit on our Nerdgasm Needs YouTube channel. The environments and level designs were great, the multiplayer was fun and fast paced, the customization for your multiplayer character was awesome, and judging by this latest video things are only gonna get better!
