Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing. For those of you who maybe want to pretend you are outside enjoying the nice weather, I have created this playlist of happy summertime jams.

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons also coming to PS3, PC

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons Achievement Guide photo
Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons Achievement Guide
by Brett Makedonski

Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons is an anomaly when it comes to Achievements. Not a single one will be unlocked through normal gameplay. However, every last one takes only seconds to get and isn't dependent on anything other than traveling a bit off the beaten path.

No, there's nothing strenuous about this list, but most of the Achievements are pretty cryptic in their description. If you're stuck on some or simply want to take all of the mystery out of it, I've put together a guide to unlocking all of them in the order that they appear. I've tried to keep it as spoiler-free as possible, but you probably shouldn't check it out if you want the purest experience possible.

That being said, 400/400 Gamerscore is right around the corner!

Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons photo
Review: Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons
by Brett Makedonski

It all starts innocently enough with a pair of brothers making their way through town. Sure, there's a task at hand, but urgency isn't an issue. It should be, but it isn't. Soaking in the warm glow of the sun and playing with some bunnies feel like more pertinent matters.

Before long, it's not apparent where the siblings are, but it's obvious that they took an unexpected turn toward Crazyville. Thinking back to just a few hours prior, it's remarkable that this is even the same adventure -- how far things have come.

That's when it hits you. Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons isn't about the destination; it's about the journey, cliché be damned. And, oh, what a journey it is.

Review: Toy Soldiers: Cold War photo
Review: Toy Soldiers: Cold War
by Maurice Tan

The original Toy Soldiers was one of the first games with the now-standard 1200 Microsoft Points price tag, and to date it's still one of the select few games that was actually worth its price. With its "take control" twist on the tower defense formula, it offered plenty of levels and even a full new game+ mode to let you play as the Germans.

Signal Studios has taken the concept of the World War I tin soldiers playing out their little war, and applied it to the Cold War era for its sequel Toy Soldiers: Cold War. Instead of this just becoming an Army Men defense game, however, the result is more like replacing the old WWI soldiers with G.I. Joe toys and loving every minute of it.

Review: Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
by Jim Sterling

If games were rated on name value alone, then Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet could be a game of the year contender. It's the kind of name guaranteed to get attention, and one that promises a unique, interesting, entertaining experience. 

Unfortunately, the risk of having an awesome name is that you need to work extra hard to make sure it's lived up to. Whether Insanely Twisted does that or not is up for debate.
