That new Attack on Titan game freaks me out

There can be no survivors
Nov 21
// Jordan Devore
It's not like I was going to sleep tonight, anyway, Attack on Titan. A handful of audio-less gameplay clips from Koei Tecmo's upcoming PS4, PS3, and PS Vita action game have surfaced on the official Japanese site. Lots of zooming around, slashing titan flesh. A couple of the videos are more mundane and feature the protagonists chatting with one another. Let's not focus on the mundane.

I've got the little futuristic frog guy as my PS4 avatar, so I'm set for life. But not everyone is down with him or the other freebies. Somehow, it has taken Sony until now to lend a helping hand. As of today, PlayStation 4 u...

There's a Star Wars Battlefront mini-fridge, too

$130 with the game
Sep 15
// Jordan Devore
Walmart is selling Star Wars Battlefront with a Han Solo mini-fridge (PS4, Xbox One). It's not as good as the collector's edition Call of Duty: Black Ops III mini-fridge. It's not even as good as this other Han Solo mini-fridge. Dear future generations: sorry about wasting the planet's resources on this crap. [Via reddit]

The Slowpoke Song has been translated

// Jordan Devore
My 3DS gets so little use that whenever I do dig out the system, I forget that I downloaded that ridiculous Slowpoke theme. It goes "yaa!" whenever you scroll through your games and apps. "Yaa. Yaa. Yayayaya." It's great. Also great? The newly-dubbed Slowpoke Song.

Please save your hardest boss arguments for someone else, as Dark Souls isn't even hard anyways, as I have deftly proven a second time. To enough folks, Ornstein and Smough are pegged as toughest. The duo, "was responsible f...

Hylics is the trippiest RPG I've ever seen

Unsettling! photo
*Slowly backs away*
Are there stranger games out there than Hylics? Surely. But I haven't seen them, and I don't know that I would even want to see them. This "recreational program with light JRPG elements" is about as much as I can handle without turning away. It's bonkers. (No, not that Bonkers!)

What's going on with this goofy Time cover?

Also, what is that Oculus plugged into?
Aug 06
// Jordan Devore
Twitter is blowing up with the new Time cover featuring Oculus VR founder Palmer Luckey. Some people seem upset -- "isn't virtual reality a hard-enough sell already?" -- which I find funny. One silly magazine cover isn't going to ruin the tech's chances at success. It's better than that. Why Virtual Reality Is About to Change the World [Time]

Katamari designer's new game Wattam is all warm and fuzzy

Jun 01 // Jordan Devore
It starts with just the Mayor, that boxy green guy pictured above. He has a penchant for explosions. You can assume direct control of him and countless other objects (which, hilariously, have human names) and your ultimate goal is to explode together by holding hands to form a chain. The trick is using each character's ability to interact with their surroundings and one another. Doing so will expand the world and bring new folks into the fray, from sushi to a toilet to a lawn mower. The music brings this concept home. Characters have their own sounds, their own tunes, and the audio flows to form a cohesive whole even as you incessantly flip back and forth between them. This is the kind of game best played socially with a group of friends and some beers, or perhaps with a child. Its creation was influenced by Takahashi playing make-believe with his two-year-old. That inspiration shows. Wattam is coming to PlayStation 4 next year, and I am pumped.

High on life
"Oh, thank eff. There's a trailer!" A couple weeks ago, I saw Wattam, a near-indescribable game from Funomena and the creator of Katamari Damacy, Keita Takahashi, at a pre-E3 event. (He had excellent socks.) I'd heard that n...
