Uncharted in Space? Yes, Please – Vlogging About Video Games

Hello beautiful humans, I’m back to vlog about video game stuff for the week. Boy oh boy, it’s never a dull week, is it? Well, last week would have been had it not been for that total save from Facebook. They really took one for the team there. Anyway, let’s vlog about video games. Specifically about how I’m a hype-less robot, Uncharted in space would be dope, and the Tropico 5 devs hate my guts.

Amy Hennig Joins EA Visceral Games

Amy Hennig, writer and creative director on Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series, has joined EA Visceral games on their upcoming Star Wars project. EA’s blog discusses the process that led these two creative forces together. Over the last few weeks, Amy and I have spent a lot of time talking about what her first project would be.

Neon Alley No Longer Running On Xbox 360 Or PS3

Way back in 2012, Viz Media announced they were developing an anime streaming channel for the PlayStation 3 called “Neon Alley”, which has since expanded to Xbox 360 and Hulu and become free for all to use, before becoming an On-Demand service in February of this year.

Daylight Gets Release Date, Trailer, Lower Price For PS+

Zombie Studio’s Daylight, a first person survival horror game (though its far closer to Outlast, thus putting it closer to “haunted house” than survival horror), has long been overdue for some attention in my book. Looking slick and doing the right thing in terms of treating the supernatural like the supernatural rather than some bullshit scientific explanation for everything, the only thing Daylight been missing is a release date. But not anymore; publisher Atlas announced that Daylight will be coming to [...]
