Steamworld Collection Going To Retail

Rising Star Steamworld.jpg

Image & Form’s really good Steamworld series is getting a retail release. Rising Star Games announced today that they will be publishing the two games, as part of one package called The Steamworld Collection, to retail stores.

Both games, Steamworld Dig and Steamworld Heist will be available as part of the collection. It will hit stores for the PS4 and Wii U in the US, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East beginning in October. A firm date has not been announced as of yet, but they have announced that it will cost you $29.99 to grab the set.. I’ve reached out to the company for word on the release date and will update the story as those details become available.

I have played both games and really like them both. I would highly recommend, if you haven’t already played them, that you pick this collection up and give them a try.

Dragon Quest – A Few of My Favorite Moments

The Dragon Quest series was and is one of my favorite video game series of all-time. I could do into quite a bit of detail about why and what it is that I continue to love about the franchise. Today, however, I’m just going to take a look at some of the moments in games, or things that occur around them that are some of my favorite things. Some of them will be direct moments that happened, some will be based on the mechanics of the series. All of them were good in their own way, even if the actual event that occurred caused feelings of sadness in me.

Here are six of my favorite moments in the history of the Dragon Quest franchise, in no particular order. (As I’m writing this the overworld music for the first game is rolling through my brain.)
