Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End review

Published

Heart-pumping, visually stimulating, and a masterclass of cinematic storytelling in video games. Those are just some of the words that we’d use to describe Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Indeed, protagonist Nathan Drake’s last adventure on the PlayStation 4 serves as a worthy punctuation mark to the Indiana Jones-inspired series, which sold over 28 million copies worldwide and helped put Sony’s console ahead of the Xbox One in the marketplace.

If you want to hear the rest of our thoughts about the game, watch our video review below.

Uncharted 4 is out now, available physically or digitally through the PlayStation Network for $60.

There’s a Neko Atsume VR game coming to the PS4!

Cat lady dreams come true

Published

Remember Neko Atsume? The adorable, noncommittal mobile game that lets you collect cute cats and watch them do the silliest of things? Well, if you were one of the people who squealed over virtual pet cats and wanted to hop into the game, you might want to warn your friend for some intense screams. Neko Atsume VR is an actual game that’s coming to PlayStation 4.

The game was first announced in September last year but had no details on when it was going to launch. Well, all the cricket noises have cleared out and the developers, Hit-Point, just announced that Neko Atsume VR will be launching for the PlayStation 4 on May 31. Before you get too excited though, the game will, unfortunately, be available only in Japan — for now.

But this doesn’t stop us from checking out the features before Hit-Point releases it worldwide. In Neko Atsume VR, you can place snacks, toys, and items in your yard. Players will have to buy these items from the shop. You can take photos and watch your cats grow in numbers. Admittedly, the game is not too different from your typical Neko Atsume but it’s still a cat lover’s dream come true.

The selling point is undeniably clear: to immerse yourself in the cute cat world and to interact with them in ways you couldn’t have before. Neko Atsume is still in the works seeing as Hit-Point has only integrated 20 types of cats you can collect. That’s not even half as many as the ones you could collect on the original version.

As of now, the rest of the world will have to wait it out since it’s, again, only available in Japan on May 31.

Kingdom Hearts 3 has adorable retro mini-games!

Game inception intensifies

Published

on

This weekend, Square Enix showed off the Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer featuring adorable playable retro-style mini-games! The new mini-games are inspired by classic Disney cartoons and 1980s LCD games. They’ll be available to play in both Kingdom Hearts Union Cross and Kingdom Hearts 3. You’ll have to check this one out now.

As you can see, the trailer is set in Twilight Town where Sora is given a handheld where he plays various cute mini-games. You can see Donald and Goofy cheering Sora on as they lean over to watch. There are over 20 LCD games available to play but Square Enix only featured four of them in the trailer.

Here’s a quick rundown of all four of the games they featured:

The Barnyard Battle

Sora and Mickey stand on two anvils. You have to turn them left and right to smack enemies with a hammer as they come down. Your goal seems to be to smack enemies before they get through you — a linear whack-a-mole, I guess.

The Karnival Kid

The Karnival Kid looks to be a black-and-white Disney Diner Dash where you’ll be taking orders from customers that come to your hotdog stand. It looks to be a nice classic strategy game that you might get addicted to.

Giantland

Giantland looks like a typical boss battle with a giant, but looking closer into the trailer, it seems like players will need to swing on chandeliers to rescue Minnie who is calling out for help. It looks like you have things on the table to hide from him so you might want to use that to your advantage.

Musical Farmer

There are chickens on the top of the screen that drop eggs into tubes. Your goal is to guide them into crates by rotating the tubes to guide the eggs. If they reach the crates, you can give them to Mickey or Minnie. The crates can only hold a certain number of eggs at a time, so you’ll need to keep a close eye.

The other 16 games have not yet been revealed and fans may have to wait it out. If you’d want to give them a try, they’re available on Kingdom Hearts Union Cross on Android and iOS.

Pokémon might release its eighth generation on the Nintendo Switch

Did you see this one coming?

Published

Pokémon fans are pretty much speculating on the mysterious game that’s going to be released for the Nintendo Switch. It still is, of course, under development so everything is still pretty hushed. Since the game is quite a while away from its release, people can’t help theorizing what the game could be. That aside, the latest bit of interesting news comes from a tweet that revealed the game’s kick-off of the franchise’s eighth generation.

This may have contradicted what most fans have been predicting since a lot of people have thought the upcoming Pokémon Switch game would have gamers return to Kanto for a series reboot. Of course, Nintendo hasn’t officially denied that theory — encouraging much of the community to talk about the upcoming game. In the official Nintendo Magazine shown in the tweet, it’s clear that fans could be wrong and the game might potentially be releasing a new generation entirely. I suppose fans didn’t call it this time around but there’s still some glimmer of hope.

I say “potentially” and “could be” because there hasn’t been any word from Nintendo themselves. It’s looking more and more like they’re rounding up their team and focusing on the new Super Smash Bros. game instead. Then again, they could be keeping quiet until an official announcement at E3 this summer. Nintendo has not confirmed or launched the title of the game nor the release date, so we may have to sit this one out and wait. If there’s a big reveal at E3, it’s happening on June 12 to June 14 in Los Angeles, California.
