Since I have been severely cutting back on posts over the past few months I’ve decided to try something a bit different by setting up the official Galactic Pillow YouTube Channel. Although both current gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) have streaming/sharing video capabilities built-in I’ve really not been impressed by the overall image quality. Likewise, the screenshot feature for the PS4 results in less-than-desirable shots and the good old Xbox One doesn’t yet even have this functionality. Therefore, on a whim, I went out and got myself an Elgato Game Capture HD device so that I could kill two birds with one stone by recording high quality video and for taking much better screenshots from both consoles.
I realize that I’m a bit late with this post considering a ton of other sites have let their own tips and tricks be known but I figured that I like the game enough to add my two cents. Therefore, here are some of my thoughts about Dragon Age Inquisition for those who are just about to start their first single-player campaign.
After months of speculation Microsoft has announced that effective June 9 that consumers can purchase an Xbox One console without the bundled Kinect accessory for $399. This marks yet another 180 degree change in direction for the company that previously commented that Kinect was necessary to achieve the entire Xbox One experience.
We are still a few months away from the most important video game conference at E3 so it goes without saying that releasing new gameplay trailers at this point in the year is certainly not expected. However, Canadian developer Bioware have surprised just about everyone by releasing this new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Dragon Age Inquisition which now has a firm date of October 7, 2014 for Canada/USA and October 9th for those in Europe.
As usual I took far too many screenshots during gameplay to prepare for my review so I present all of them here in this gallery for the Playstation 4 version of Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. Please note that many of these screenshots contain a ton of spoilers but also that I present them mostly out of chronological order as I can’t be bothered to re-arrange them.
Here is the official launch trailer for EA/Respawn’s Titanfall that is due to be released next week on March 11 on Microsoft’s Xbox One. This marks the first potential blockbuster release of the next generation console war and surely everyone in Redmond is going to be hoping that it boosts Xbox One sales and becomes the next big franchise the system desperately needs.
After winning a ton of awards last year developer Naughty Dog is back with some single-player DLC for their highly acclaimed title, The Last of Us. Entitled “Left Behind” the DLC takes place long before Ellie meets Joel in the game and instead focuses on her and her best friend, Riley. That’s all I’m really going to say to avoid spoiling anything for those who still haven’t played the game.
In my last blog post I presented my impressions of Sony’s Playstation 4 but as it is only fair this week’s editorial is all about Microsoft’s Xbox One. If you are a die-hard gamer the past two weeks have been a whirlwind with the launch of both next-gen systems and approximately 40+ games that all attempt, in some way or other, to showcase what the future of console video gaming is all about. My impressions of the PS4 have so far been highly positive so let’s see if Microsoft can also hit a home run.
