We’ve reviewed the various LEGO games over the last few years here at Biff Bam Pop, and all of them have been highly recommended for the most part. The latest entry in the franchise, though, takes the games to a new level of fun, thanks in no small part to the outstanding intellectual property its based upon.
Alien invasions have been the premise for some of the best – and worst – games of all time. While these games have you primarily saving the world from imminent danger, they often provide the setting for some of the best gaming stories you can play. Here are three of my favorite alien invasion games.
Burns and I got the VIP treatment at the Scotiabank Theater last night in Toronto at the 2016 Playstation E3 Experience, and we couldn’t have asked for a better event. Playstation came out guns blazing, showcasing exclusives, remakes, remasters and VR in a flow that felt more like movie trailers than a conference. Very little talking by execs and almost all video and gameplay – the way a PS4 event should be. Here’s a rundown of some of the bigger announcements. Read the rest of this entry

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Releases New LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Vignette Spotlighting Finn
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released the next video in a series of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens character vignettes spotlighting Finn, one of the newest heroes to join the Resistance in the fight against the First Order. The video showcases Finn’s LEGO character in full form through key gameplay moments, cinematic cutscenes and authentic audio lines, all with signature LEGO humor. The vignette also features original dialogue recorded by actor John Boyega, who plays the role of Finn in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film.
I’ve never played the original Shadow of the Beast (Amiga, 1989), but from what I’m told, this game is a pretty faithful remake. It’s a short play – roughly 3 hours on normal – but it’s an enjoyable mix of counter-based combat and side-scrolling platforming.
Warner Bros. Interactive announced today Batman: Return to Arkham, which bundles the hit videogames Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City rebuilt using Unreal Engine 4 into one package. Meet me after the jump for the trailer and screenshots.
I want to tell you that I’ve seen the future of gaming and that it’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but that would be wrong because, 1) Uncharted has been a Playstation franchise for nearly a decade and 2) the future isn’t months or years away- thanks to the first instalment of the game for Playstation 3, the future is here, and it is incredible.
Ratchet and Clank is one of the most fun games I’ve played all year. It’s not long – about 6-10 hours depending on how much of a perfectionist you are – but it’s chalk full of great gameplay and fun and interesting characters.
I play this game for one reason, mostly: Road to the Show.
I’ll be clear, Sony San Diego has added a TON of exciting new gameplay modes to MLB 16, and now that the servers are up and I can get into the other game modes I’ll get a review up for them as well as I play through them, but this review is going to focus on RTTS.
