So today the Last of Us Remastered comes out, and I couldn’t be more excited, especially after the stellar review by Colin Moriarty ( Which you can read here) on IGN. Within a few weeks i will be streaming the game to show different it looks on PS4. For the release of the game this week, Naughty Dog invited voice actors Troy Baker (Joel), Ashely Johnson (Ellie), Merle Dandrige (Marlene), Hanna Hayes (Sarah) and Annie Wersching (Tess) to perform a live reading for select scenes of the game. Their performances were streamed via Twitch, and among them was a exclusive secret ending of the game. You can watch the whole performance down below, but to see the secret scene, jump head to 30:26 in the video. Let me know what you think.
Who remembers Super Nintendo’s 1995 cult video game Earthbound? If you don’t, its ok, just take notice that its where Super Smash Brother’s character, Ness is from. Anyway, the music from the game is epic, so epic in fact that a remix was made for one of the most memorable levels-Snowman.
One of my favorite Batman Villains, Mr. Freeze, is getting his own DLC story line for Batman: Arkham Origins. It will be based on legendary Comic book writer/Storyboard writer Paul Dini’s splendid work on Batman: The Animated Series. Dini’s reinterpretation of the character, changed him from a two bit criminal named Joe Chill to a multi dimensional man that had the only love taken from him in a tragic turn of events. Dini made the character relatable and empathic, he made the character’s powers reflect his emotional turmoil.
There has been news that Capcom is once again releasing a various of the iconic Street Fighter IV game (I know another one!). While there are couple of new fighters and arenas, Ultra Street Fighter will take an approach to fix the technical gaps of each character’s individual command lists. As for example, Ryu’s combo chain of a medium kick into a Haduken will be easier to pull off. And Sagat’s second hit of the Standing Light Kick is able to be special cancelled. Each character will become more balanced to have a better gameplay experience. So if you want to try it yourself to feel the difference, the game will be available early June 2014, good news is that if you own Super Street Fighter IV or Super Street Fighter IV : Arcade Edition, you can upgrade for just $14.99. Sorry owners of the PC version, you will have to wait another two months for it to drop in August. As an apology for making you guys wait, Capcom will offer them a full version of the game, including the all the costumes, for just $29.99. So it kinda works out, right? The full version of the game on disc will also be out in August.
