To Infinity and Beyond
On The Mark

By Jorge Figueiredo - November 11th, 2014

infinitymerida

Scottish princess Merida is equally as comfortable addressing a crowd at a royal function as she is riding her horse Angus through the countryside at breakneck speed (usually hitting a bullseye with every target that’s within range of her powerful bow). Mastering these skills took time, of course, not to mention a witch, a bear, and an evil spirit – but master them she did. The fifth princess in Infinity (Anna, Elsa, Rapunzel and Vanllope Von Schweetz being her forerunners), Merida brings her fiery personality and indomitable will to the franchise.

Just Dance 2015

A new holiday season is upon us, as evidenced by all of the tell-tale signs: the leaves are changing colour, the air is getting cooler and crisper, and the dance games are all being released. In the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” category, Ubisoft’s Just Dance 2015 doesn’t really shake things up too badly – but then, it never really has. Of course, this doesn’t seem to prevent it from being one of the most anticipated and loved titles in the world. Minor improvements, a few new features, and a refreshed song selection await anyone who wishes to shake a tail feather or two in front of their Xbox One’s Kinect camera. Ubisoft sent us an Xbox One code for Just Dance 2015 – and we really dug it.

Disney Infinity 2.0 – Marvel Superheroes

By Jorge Figueiredo - October 2nd, 2014

When Avalanche Software’s Disney Infinity was announced, some people questioned if there was any point in the empire of the Mouse trying to horn in on what appeared to be a niche market with a clear monopoly. Of course, it didn’t take long to see that the magic of the Magic Kingdom was a power to be reckoned with. Last year, when I reviewed Disney Infinity (you should read that review), I mentioned that it was within the realm of possibility that Disney could include Marvel in an upcoming release of Infinity. Lo and behold, the inclusion of the Marvel universe has come to pass in Avalanche’s latest release, Disney Infinity 2.0; but is this version merely just an expansion involving characters only? No – this is much, much more.

PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset

While there are a bevy of personal sound delivery solutions for the Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 from third parties, Sony’s own headphone solutions have always been a welcome one. Both the Wireless Stereo Headset and the Pulse Elite Edition Wireless Headset are great products, delivering great sound quality while remaining conveniently portable and durable – all for a reasonable price. Sony’s PlayStation Gold Wireless Stereo Headset is the latest in their line of listening technology, and it should come as no surprise that this full-featured headset meets and exceeds the bar set by the previous two headphones.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution

By Jorge Figueiredo - August 4th, 2014

The Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm series is (in my humble opinion) one of the best fighting games that you can play. It’s a pretty lofty claim, especially in the face of such greats like the Street Fighter series and the Mortal Kombat franchise (to name a few) – but the fine folks at CyberConnect2 continue to push the boundaries in terms of depth and fun, making for a better experience with each game (which is amazing, considering that the first game in the series is still really enjoyable to play). The next title in the series, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution, promises to be the best chapter yet, and includes even more playable characters and cool features than any previous version.

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn

By Sharad Hirjee - July 30th, 2014

For those who are unfamiliar with the franchise, Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn for the Playstation 3 (and Vita) is an Japanese anime style role play game, with several characters that control robotic suits, similar to the old MechWarrior games; think I Robot meets the Shogun. It sounded like an interesting concept to me at first – but that soon changed. If you are a hack-‘n-slash kind of gamer, or if you enjoy running around and shooting things, welcome to your asylum.
