Elite Dangerous Review (PS4)

 

Space, the infinite void of darkness full of discovery and unknown. Some call space the final frontier then start a five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations then end up with tribbles. These are not the voyages of the Starship Enterprise but rather the story of one person’s adventure in Elite Dangerous.

Elite Dangerous is an open world space adventure where you are the commander of your own personal spaceship. Your mission: to explore the vast reaches of the galaxy. You are given the freedom to choose how you wish to experience the universe of Elite Dangerous. You could choose to be a space pirate and steal cargo, be a trader and gather a fortune or be a bounty hunter.  There are numerous career choices and your only limitation is what your ship can handle. No matter how you spend your time in Elite Dangerous you will most likely find yourself lost and confused early on in both a positive and negative way.

Persona 5 Review (PS3 & PS4)

Think back to the long lost year of 2013. It was a simpler time, when man could walk the streets without fear of dragons falling from the heavens and One Punch Man wasn’t massively popular in the west yet. One day Atlus appeared before mankind and gifted him a trailer that showed chairs tethered with balls and chains and liberal use of the color red. The video ended with a line of text that read Persona 5 Winter 2014 for PS3. Mankind went wild with excitement and praise for the gift bestowed upon them by the Atlus overlords and for a brief moment all was right with the world until man realized the newest console on the market was Playstation 4. After some time the God Emperors of Atlus decided time was on their side and worked tirelessly to present Persona 5 to man for the PS4, thus adding an extra layer of polish. And after a series of events, Persona 5 was placed in the hands of man in Japan and months later… the rest of the world. Continue reading “Persona 5 Review (PS3 & PS4)”

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone Review (PS4)

There have been a number of different games to come to the states featuring digital diva Hatsune Miku. We had one less than six months ago so it was kind of surprising that we’d get another one so soon. This most recent release, Hatsune Miku Project Diva Future Tone is even more surprising in that it’s a home release of a Japanese arcade game.

Project Diva Future Tone is a multi-part package. You can download the base package for free from Playstation Network. That gives you two songs to play. If you want more you’ll have to buy one of the packs, Future Sound or Colorful Tone. Each of these packages are available for $30 a piece or as a bundle you save a little bit of money and can get them for $54. Regardless of which package you choose you’re getting a great deal. There are over 220 songs in the full package, easily the most content rich game in the series, in terms of songs. The Future Sound package contains songs that come mostly from the releases of Project Diva F while Colorful Tone takes its song selections from the Project Mirai games on the 3DS.
