The Last Tinker: City of Colors introduces players to Tinkerworld, a charming place where everything is crafted from basic materials, with an overview of its dire situation. The inhabitants of Tinkerworld, who come in red, green, and blue varieties, have started to despise one another and so divided the City of Colors into districts. The only remaining place where creatures of all colors are welcome is the Outer District. The introduction goes on to say that there is a boy with special talents who lives in the Outer District, and that he is going to start a chain of events that will destroy the city. So begins The Last Tinker: City of Colors.

That boy turns out to be a young monkey named Koru, who sets out with his floating, piñata-like sheep Tap to enter a local race. I spent my time exploring the Outer District, collecting floating paintbrushes and earning crystals while learning how to get around in the game. Koru can punch, dodge, hop across gaps, grind along rails, and interact with other creatures. Read the rest of this entry »

When it was announced at last year’s E3, Titanfall dropped right off of my radar. I dismissed it as “just another shooter” and that was the end of it… until my brother gave me a key to the Titanfall Beta.

I dropped in to Titanfall with no expectations, but instantly felt right at home with its visuals, controls, and loadouts. This is Respawn Entertainment’s first game, and their Call of Duty heritage shines bright. I’ve played all of the major shooters throughout the years, with Halo being my primary go-to FPS, but I’m pleased to say I’ve never played anything quite like Titanfall.

EQNext

I’m not sure how many MMO fans we have out there, but just in case there is more than zero, I’ll post this.

Last year’s SOE LIVE (formerly known as SOE Fan Faire) announced that a new game, EverQuest Next, was in development and will be coming Soon™.

Later today (Noon PDT, 3PM EDT), SoE will be streaming via twitch their keynote of EverQuest Next’s reveal as part of this year’s SOE LIVE.  If all goes well, I plan on live blogging the event.

We will find out if EverQuest Next will be a game to try out or just another in a long line of other MMOs that most people don’t even know exists.

Ken Levine, creator of BioShock made that tweet, along with others yesterday that suggest the BioShock Infinite is going to get new DLC announced today. He said to “check the internets on Tuesday around 8 AM est”, which is strange because that is tomorrow. He then made sense of it by explaining how far away the event is taking place.

All joking aside, many are looking forward to this, and we may see the continuation of BioShock Infinite that we’ve been waiting for.

The latest episode of Did You Know Gaming gives us some insight on the development history and creation of The Sims, presented by everyone’s favorite formerly-bearded PC game reviewer: Brutalmoose. The new video teaches us about everything from the original rejection of the game, to a yellow sports car, but interestingly leaves out the detail of “death by snu-snu.” If you are at all a fan of The Sims, I implore you to watch this video.

In a move surprising absolutely nobody, Phil Fish got upset after Marcus Beer (The Annoyed Gamer) made commentary on Game Trailers’ show Invisible Walls, tearing Fish and Jon Blow apart. Beer was complaining about the two of them refusing to give quotes to Game Informer on the suspected news that the Xbox One will not allow Indie Developers to Self-Publish. After good ol’ Fishy saw this today, he ranted on Twitter and complained at Beer, telling him to kill himself. He then went as far to cancel Fez II, which he had just announced last month. The official Polytron twitter also made the announcement that the game is cancelled, so it seems to be official.

Enter the Dominatrix was originally intended to be a standalone expansion for Saints Row: The Third, but got scrapped when THQ went bankrupt. Now that Volition is taking care of the series though, it looks like the long-awaited expansion will finally be arriving. The problem that many are having with this news though, is what was told at Comic Con by Steve Jaros, the game’s creative director.

Jaros told fans that while the expansion will get its release, with new content to boot, it will be released 45 days after the initial release of Saints Row IV as paid DLC. People tend to have an issue with DLC being announced before a game is even released because it implies that they could just put it in the game, but are choosing not to because they want more money. In this case, it’s been a bit of a debate between fans though, because it’s not “Day 1 DLC”, a situation in which a publisher releases DLC on the same day as the game it’s for. The fact that it is being released a month and a half later implies that it isn’t done yet, so they’re still working on it.

Either way, I’m glad to see this expansion being released, but I’d have to see the content first to decide if it is worth the money it will cost to buy it. Let’s hope that it was worth the wait.
