Thanks to our pals at Ster Kinekor Entertainment, we’ve got one premium tomb Edition of Konami and Mercury Steam’s Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2. I liked the game, but some odd design decisions meant it failed to live up to the promise of the original. Still, that Tomb Edition with all of its extras is one sexy heck of a prize. And the guy who’s won it is…

If you’ve just joined us today, we’re discussing…something. I lost attention after my fifth tequila iced tea, but judging by the fact that several interns have disembowelled themselves, I’m guessing that we couldn’t reach a consensus on the topic. Either that, or I went too far when I started making Bloody Mary drinks.
The fifth (and, deity of choice willing final) expansion for World of Warcraft is coming this year, and Blizzard’s seen fit to put the digital versions of the thing up for pre-order. You can pick up both the regular game and the digital deluxe edition from the Blizzard store. they’ve also revealed that the expansion will be out on or before December 20 this year. Brace yourselves.
I don’t really get the sharing stuff in the new consoles. The Playstatyion4, in particular, has button just for sharing videos and screenshots built right in to the controller. I’ve used it on occasion to test it out, but I’ve never felt compelled when actually playing a game to share the stuff I’ve just played. Maybe the cool stuff that happens in Watch Dogs will change that, but I doubt it.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. It's a quirky and fun take on the ARPG genre, and I'm excited for the second installment. Now, we have a launch date, and a nifty way to compare the second game to the original.
Until Nintendo finally caves in and makes a Batarang Pokémon, I’m going to keep my in-game PC stocked with Honedge and Aegislash variants. Because nothing says business like throwing a living sword at Team Rocket. And now, master Blacksmith Tony Swatton has brought Honedge to life.
Destiny is shaping up to be a game I keep forgetting about, until I hear more and get excited. Yeah, I know, it's blowing hot and cold for me. However, we finally get a glimpse at some gameplay in this latest PS4 commercial, and I'm definitely getting hot again.
Yes, I’m looking very forward to Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. I got to have a go with the game at E3 and rAge this year, and it’s a beautiful, smooth 60fps thrill ride. If we’re being honest though, it really is just more Mario Kart, and I really wish Nintendo would be more honest about its regular rehashes. If you've ever watched any of Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers, then you know what to expect from this one from Smosh. It’s an Honest Mario Kart Trailer.
I know you're all suckers for competitions. There's nothing like free stuff to make us happy, and there's a competition that I wish I could take part in, too. Alas, I have integrity and don't feel it's appropriate, but man, I wish I could get this fancy shmancy new TV.
By now, you're all familiar with the trials and tribulations over at the MSSA. We are hoping for change, keeping some optimism about the new president, but many have called for an entirely new organization to take over and take eSports in a positive new direction. Now, it looks like that might be happening.
PlayStation Home, Sony’s bizarre online MMO crazy life simulator launched in 2008 for lord alone knows what reason. I first logged in then and it was a confusing place, much like Linden Labs’ Second Life, filled with the strangest denizens the internet had to offer. In surprising, confusing news Sony has said that it’s updating the virtual life service. Equally surprising? PlayStation Home still exists.
