Hands-on with classic 90s game Grim Fandango, remastered for the PS4

grim fandango

Among all the new games revealed at the E3 show this year, one of the titles I’m most excited about is over 15 years old. Sony has secured a remastered version of Grim Fandango, a wacky adventure game from LucasArts and Tim Schafer, for the PS4 and PS Vita. We got an early look at a small part of the game at a Sony preview event this week. The remastering process is still ongoing, so the graphics I saw are far from final, but they do give a sense of what Double Fine has planned for the game. The original artwork for Grim Fandango was…

The Pokémon Trading Card Game is coming to the iPad

Even as Nintendo continues to withhold some of our favorite gaming experiences from smartphones and tablets, here’s one ray of hope. Polygon reports that The Pokémon Company has confirmed plans to release an iPad version of its popular online trading card game. It’s not yet clear when the app will launch, but Josh Wittenkeller has published an apparent screenshot of the app: It looks like Pokémon TCGO is in works for the iPad! Should be a huge way to expand the game. #PlayPokemon pic.twitter.com/SPlx3QZaTC — Josh Wittenkeller (@TheJWittz) August 15, 2014 The iPad has proved itself to be a worthy…

FBL-FRIENDLY-BRA-CHI
The FIFA World Cup has just reached the knockout stages. That increase in drama and tension has set a new record for Twitter, which just revealed that the Brazil vs Chile match became its most-tweeted real-time event ever. The 16.4 million tweets sent during the match — which tournament hosts Brazil narrowly won following a penalty shootout — make it the most tweeted game from the World Cup so far. The company says the moment that Chilean defender Gonzalo Jara missed the crucial penalty triggered 389,000 tweets per minute — that beats Superbowl 48 (382,000 tweets per minute) as the most tweeted sporting event to date….

Stanley Cup Playoffs: Rangers, Penguins battle in Game 7, Wild fight to stay alive

Source: www.sbnation.com – Tuesday, May 13, 2014
The Rangers and Penguins battle in Game 7 in Pittsburgh, and the Wild look to even their series with the Blackhawks in Game 6 in Minnesota. When it comes to Game 7s everybody loves to tell you how you can throw the numbers out the window … except for important numbers, like the records of teams that score first (they win 74 percent of the time). On Tuesday in Pittsburgh, it was Brian Boyle getting the all-important first goal when he capitalized on an odd-man rush created by the one breakdown the Penguins had in the first period. That wasn't a particularly good sequence for Matt Niskanen as he whiffed on a shot in the offensive zone, then went for the big hit along the wall the blue line and missed, creating a three-on-one rush for the Rangers . For Boyle, it's his second goal of the playoffs and his first of the series.

Titanfall launched earlier this week with a year’s worth of hype behind it and was received with much excitement from the gaming community. Gamers flooded online as it launched at midnight in the US, taking the game’s dedicated servers offline seemingly immediately. Call of Duty changed the way we thought about first person shooters and Titanfall comes from some of the greatest minds that birthed the original franchise at Infinity Ward. Developer of Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment was born with ex-senior executives Jason West and Vince Zampella from Infinity Ward at the helm. Titanfall is Respawn’s first self-created title, which is an…
