Review: Trials Fusion – Broken Bones have never been more fun

“Welcome to the Future” is how Trials Fusion greets you as you begin another chapter of the world’s most beloved trial bike game.  Featuring over 50 levels of hops, jumps and (for the first time) stunts, Trials Fusion attempts to jumpstart the franchise in an all new way for the future.  But how does this stack up with the last couple games?  I turn to a longtime series fan and prominent member of the Trials community for his input as we review Trials Fusion, now available at your local Best Buy and BestBuy.ca

XBox One vs. Playstation 4 – 5 months later

We’re now a few months past the original release of the XBox One and the Playstation 4. Both are great systems in their own right, but the discussion continues to rage on as to which is the better system.  Rather than focus on things from a technological standpoint, I think it’s just as important to look at some of the places where the systems hit us harder – Our wallets and our personal needs.  Which system do I think gives the best bang for your buck inside and outside the box?  Which is the better bargain?  Where did I actually think neither were doing a great service to gamers?  Read on to find out.

Review: Putty Squad [Playstation 4]

The game Putty Squad has a pretty screwy life cycle.  Originally released in 1994 for the Super Nintendo in PAL (outside North America) regions, it had review copies released for the Amiga, but Ocean Entertainment started to move away from publishing, and never released it.  Almost two decades passed, and Putty Squad was almost released for Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita and then FINALLY debuted for Amiga last year.  Putty Squad is now available in North America for Playstation 4, having been a rest of the world launch title.  Then, it will be released on Playstation 3 and Vita at the end of this month.  Was that confusing enough?  Hopefully the review isn’t.  Click on to read about Putty Squad.

Top 5 photo printers

Two things have radically transformed photography in the past two decades. The first of course, is the rise of the digital camera with its ability to take limitless photos and instantly see results without having to wait for film to develop. The second is the growing popularity of photo printers. Thanks to the ability of these machines to produce high quality colour prints on demand, photo labs have all but disappeared. Photo printers have only gotten better, with higher resolution, faster printing and features on some like on-printer editing with built-in LCD displays, super-sized prints and wireless access. There are plenty of photo printers to choose from, but here are five of the best to consider if your printer needs are less about pages of text and more about high quality pictures.

Two Sony Exclusive RPGs and an Honorable Mention!

You can always count on Sony to keep the titles coming after a generational shift. Ever since moving from the PS1, they’ve supported their last gen hardware, and proving nothing has changed are two very different RPG titles, and a fighter.  Whether its the JRPG stylings that capture your fancy, of if you prefer a more Diablo-esque hack, slash, and loot-athon, we’ve got a bit of both, with The Witch and The Hundred Knight and Atlier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk.

Review: Yoshi’s New Island [Nintendo 3DS]

Long before Mario was super, he was transported as a baby to Yoshi Island where the Yoshis had to protect him from the wizard Kamek.  Your adventure is as the various Yoshis in 6 different worlds protecting Baby Mario from being snatched into the hands of evil, as it is believed he will be trouble for Bowser as a grown-up.  Kamek got one thing right:  Mario IS going to be trouble for Bowser, but can you get him to safety and adulthood where he can then save the world?  Yoshi’s New Island is the latest installment of the franchise, and is available now.  Click on to read the review of this family friendly title.

InFamous: Second Son

The first real big Sony Exclusive for the PS4, InFamous is back with its Second Son (and third major release!). Traipse about Seattle… wait, did I say ‘traipse’? I meant navigate, teleport, and otherwise move with awesome looking super powers across a fantastically rendered Emerald City as you fight against a heinous, superpower hating, military corps!  Its time to decide what sort of supe you’ll be, with Infamous: Second Son!

Steam Machines vs. PC – Which to buy next?

This used to be a no brainer:  You have a few hundred or a couple grand to spend on your next gaming PC, and you go get one, whether it’s off the shelf, or you buy pieces and build yourself.  With Steam Machines on the way, however, and the growth of that gaming medium, your choice might be a bit tougher now that you can basically stick that all in your living room while still having access to Operating Systems and the like.  Which would you go with?  Which am I going with?  I take a look at some of the consideration points after the jump.

Call of Duty: Ghosts new DLC – Devastation!

With four new map packs, a new class of weapon (well, a new merging of two classes really) and a brand new chapter in the (deservedly) acclaimed Extinction co-op experience, Activision and the good folks at Infinity Ward have a new bit of DLC coming your way April 3.  Announced earlier this month, the Devastation DLC is included with the seasons pass, curious what’s in store?  Come have a gander, its Call of Duty:Ghosts Devastation!
