    Well its finally here! The trailer for the much anticipated Tell Tale Production of Minecraft! It was released today at MineCon. Details of the game have been kept pretty hush hush until now so we have enough to ingest and tide us over until the next thing.

    The 5 part episodic game will take you to the Nether, the Farlands, the End and a few other places. Like the past Tell Tale games, your decisions in the game will make a difference in how the story will play out. Probably the biggest bit of news is Patton Oswald is the lead character, Corey Feldman and Billy West(Futurama) also have unannounced roles. I also picked up that the guy who played Lee Everett from The Walking Dead game has a character in it.

    No idea when release will happen, if I had to speculate I'd say end of the year as Tales from the Borderlands just put out episode 3 and we still have Games of Thrones in production. But I can tell you I'm pretty excited about it, I love everything Tell Tale has done for a long time now.

    The above video is from E3 and shows what this next update is all about, but we have more details about what the update will have.

    The big part of the update is the addition of Firebug and Demolitions to the perk list. So one of the more popular perks is finally coming to the early access game.

    The weapon perks for the two perks are listed here:
    • Tier 1 Caulk 'N Burn - Get close and personal to burn its face off (short ranged flamethrower?)
    • Tier 2 Trench Gun - Incendiary rounds.
    • Tier 3 Flamethrower - The classic roaster.
    • Grenade modification - Molotov.

    • Tier 2 - C4
    • Tier 4 - RPG 7

    I think enough content has been added to get me to come back since its release, so come find me and lets kill zeds together!

    Well the time is finally here. The last in the Arkham story arc of Batman. A whole lot has lead up to this moment. So lets re-cap a bit.

    First we started with Batman Arkham Asylum. This is a bit sentimental for me. This game was the first game I bought on Steam full price. It was shortly after their first summer sale and I played the demo and was hooked from that moment onward. In Asylum, the Joker orchestrated a huge takeover of Arkham Island to have a plan to finally make Batman lose control and become just like him. We saw and interacted with many of the characters famous in the Batman Universe. This game is realitively simple compared to its sequel and prequel, but it had to be. It introduced a unique combat system and a puzzle aspect using gadgets from which Batman wouldn't be Batman without. Arkham Asylum is still to this day one of my favorite games of all time.

    Next we come to the first sequel, Batman Arkham City. I initially was hesitant to this game's location and believably, however, I overcame that quickly with the introduction sequence. Even though the introduction sequence was highly scripted, it did not set the tone for the game at all. The city was truly open world where after you became Batman, you had freedom to do whatever you wanted to do. The introduction of a second playable character, Catwoman, added another degree of depth to the story. The story included so many Batman villains that you needed to defeat it was truly a whirlwind ride to get to the ending, I won't spoil it because its that good (plus if you wanted to you can easily find it). The ending of Arkham City was one of my favorite endings to a game ever. Simply put, it was the right way to do it.

    Our next stop takes us to the little respected Batman Arkham Origins. Due to a few cast changes after City ended, Rocksteady decided not to do the next chapter and let someone else have a crack at the world they build. Many people trashed Origins, but through its flaws there was a unique view of Batman. The story took place shortly after Bruce Wayne took on the alter-ego Batman to fight crime and Black Mask put a bounty on his head on Christmas Eve. Half the villains in this game are the obscure ones but some of the most important ones to the character of Batman. There were a few continuity issues that I accept really didn't help the story, but for the game, I think they made the right decision of breaking continuity. While it wasn't my favorite, Origins was probably the most challenging for me.

    I'll skip over the 2.5D side scroller Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate, I still haven't finished it, mostly because I think the developers didn't either.

    Now to the moment and the game we are all talking about today. Batman Arkham Knight. This game will put a cornerstone in the Arkham story arc. It will pull all the villains together (again), to finally end the Bat. We get to actually drive the Batmobile, have cooperative fights with our allies and the Batmobile, we get to rocket jump in the Batmobile. Did I mention the Batmobile? Anyway, it seems that the main villain will be Scarecrow leading Harley Quinn, The Riddler, Penguin, Poison Ivy and Two Face.

    If you've watched the above video, do so now as from here on out I'll be talking about it.

    The trailer shows us all the same things we've seen in previous videos, but a few new things showed up. First, Muse doing a song? Dunno what that is all about. Second, it looks like at some point we end up fighting robots that look like they belong in Borderlands. And last and probably most important the tone of the trailer. Death. I wonder how the game will end, hope its at least an 8 hour experience, fingers crossed for more. Sucks PC users won't get a proper review probably until the end of the week but its Batman Arkham, nuff said. I'll try to conduct my own review by the end of the week but most likely won't hit till the weekend.

    Through a very vague tweet, it appears YouTube is about to announce its shot at competing with Twitch.

    More details coming soon...?

    Well as we all know the Summer Sale has started. Now if this is your first Steam sale, you may find yourself a bit overwhelmed with all the pretty green sale logo's flying around and not sure what to buy. Well, my friend, this is not my first rodeo when it comes to sales. As my near 700 game library can attest to, I buy a ton of games and probably 90% of them are on a sale of some sort.

    So here's how you should approach if you should buy the game now or wait.

    #1. Is it a daily deal? Buy Now. This is the lowest sale price it will be. So need to wait to see if goes lower.
    #2. Is it a flash deal? If you really want this game, probably get it now. There are a few instances where flash deals become daily deals, but they have been far to few and the difference in the sale was 5-10%.
    #3. Is it part of the community unlock deal? These games will probably not be involved in either of the daily or flash deals. So buy now.

    What if my game has a sale price on it but is not one of the above? Well the answer is wait. Most of Steam's catalog goes on some sort of sale from start to finish. Some games will get the daily/flash/community deals at some point which would be at a bigger discount.

    This year they added a minigame to help get deals instead of voting. So have fun playing that, at least get it started at least once to participate and help the community get the goal deals.

    Well this was an interesting bit of news to come down the line since the Ducktales Remastered game. Speaking of, it seems we'll keep seeing classics like this to keep coming. Mega Man Legacy will drop sometime later this summer, no date set, and will be $15.

    So my question is, when will we see Super Mario Bros. come to PC? ;-)

    After 2 years of waiting, we are one step closer to a long awaited reality. Valve has announced the date of when Steam Hardware will be available and you can buy it now and get it early!

    Check out this video on the Steam Controller:

    Stuff you can buy now and you could get it as soon as October 16th when the first wave of products go out are the Steam Controller $50, Steam Link $50 and 2 different Steam Boxes starting at $500.

    The Steam Controller is pretty self explanatory. Its a freaking controller built by Valve to specifically operate the Steam software. Duh.

    The Steam Link is the basic of the basic when it comes the Steam Home Gaming system. It basically sets up a remote to your desktop through your network. There is a place for it to be wired into the network but also will work wirelessly. There is some concern that there would be latency issues in the control, so its yet to be determined if that is truly a problem.

    The two Steam Boxes available are the Alienware one, which will be available at GameStop locations, and the Syber, which is available only online at the moment. The Steam Boxes are essentially mini-PC's that have high end components. The base is at $500 but goes up to $750 for the Alienware boxes and $1420 for the Syber boxes. I do believe the Alienware boxes will not be upgradable, but I believe Syber you can upgrade memory and storage after you buy it. The Steam Boxes will have Steam OS installed on them and I doubt you can partisan the drive.
