On June 30, 2017, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy brings the marsupial back the the Playstation 4 with remastered HD versions of Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: Warped. They say that some things look better with age, and these remastered games certainly do. Check out the gameplay trailer, just revealed at Activision's E3 pre-show...

I clearly need two things: Time, and an Xbox One. As my lonely 360 longs for more playtime, I've been longing to get into some new STAR WARS games, something I've enjoyed on occasion from THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK on the Atari 2600 (80s), to the excellent SUPER STAR WARS series on SNES (90s) and well-through the prequel eras of Podracing, the first BATTLEFRONT and most recently, Disney Infinity. While I've not played EA's current BATTLEFRONT, it's on my "to-do" list, especially after seeing where STAR WARS games will be heading over the next few years. From more add-on DLC for BATTLEFRONT including DEATH STAR and BESPIN packs, to different types of gameplay on multiple platforms spanning multiple eras of STAR WARS storytelling, EA and partners including DICE, BioWare, Motive, Visceral Games, Capital Games and Respawn Entertainment are prepping many new adventures in a galaxy far, far away. Check out the E3 reveal video below...

I keep getting reminders that I need an Xbox One. I loved DEAD RISING, then missed DEAD RISING 2, but when DEAD RISING 3 was announced... it was exclusive to the "next generation" system. Now there's this crazy new thing called Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX +α, a new DLC experience that adds to DEAD RISING 3 and features 35 original songs by composer Oleksa Lozowchuk and various artists including Traz Damji, QUAZR, Stu Goldberg and SKY 13. Want the soundtrack? Sumthing Else Music Works has made the official soundtrack album available as a free digital download exclusively at their official site.

It has been a really long time since I've had the chance to get into a STAR WARS video game. There were some really good ones along the way, but I sort of moved away from it. That said, I've been hoping for a new chance to become immersed in a galaxy far, far away - and 2015's STAR WARS: BATTLEFRONT just might be the game. At the in-progress E3 event, Electronic Arts unleashed the first official trailer for the game (which includes an introduction to the development team). See that trailer, along with the teaser that first appeared at last year's E3 below...

e3125The crew over at Activision Publishing hit The Rock Father with details on their E3 plans, which includes CALL OF DUTY: GHOSTS (a game I plan on playing this November), SKYLANDERS SWAP FORCE (this holidays big hit?), and DESTINY (a game I need to look into further. Along with the announcement comes confirmation that these games will be available for the much-anticipated XBOX ONE from Microsoft (I need one of those) and the PLAYSTATION 4 from Sony. Check out the slate below.
