PlayStation 5 Released for Pre-order Today And Is Sold Out For All The Wrong Reasons

Sony announced that PlayStation 5 would be available for Pre-Order today and it kind of was…The next gen console sold out pretty much instantly but not so much because of popularity…Almost ever available console was bought up by price gougers and they have jacked the price up ridiculously in most cases.

If you do a search for PS5 on eBay you’ll find many available but they are all ranging in price from $700 – $1000, most in the upper ranges of that. This is all made even worse by the fact that the holiday season is just around the corner and Sony Typically doesn’t do a second wave of shipments for quite a while after release, so these may be the only PlayStation 5’s available for some time to come.

I’m not sure of the legalities of all of this stuff but I do know it’s morally wrong and just plain shitty to do…a lot of console owners play on console not just because they are loyal to it but because many can not afford a high end PC to play good games on but at $300 – $500 for most consoles these days it’s affordable for many…There will be many kids this Xmas that were going to get a PS5 and now will not…it’s a shame that Sony allows this to happen, they should allow a few weeks for individuals to buy before they allow bulk retail orders so that this will not happen.

There’s not a whole lot that we as gamers can do to stand up to this kind of bullshit other than just not buy the console….how nice would it feel to know one of these assholes got stuck with 5000 PS5s that they can’t get rid of…so as gamers we need to put our feet down on this one and refuse to give in to these inflated prices…fight the urge to buy them, we’ve waited years for this console we can wait a little longer…

What are your thoughts?

Are these guys rotten human beings or is this just how it goes now?

Sony Announces Release Date and Price Of PlayStation 5

Bloomberg reported today that Sony announced a price range and release window for the next-gen console PlayStation 5, people have been wondering if Sony would be able to compete with Microsoft in price and it’s looking like they just may.

They are releasing the console on November 12, in plenty of time for the holiday season and it will be selling for $500, although you can get yourself a digital only version for $400.

Now gamers have pretty much all the info they need to decide which console they’re going with this time around, although I’m sure PC gamers are watching and laughing at us console junkies, but hey, you love what you love and I myself have been a PlayStation guy for the past two generations…but I have love for Xbox too and if circumstances allow I’m sure I’ll get both systems at some point.

What are your thoughts?

PS5 or Xbox Series X?

Or are you just a PC gamer and couldn’t care less?

Necromunda: Underhive Wars (Sept. 8)

The Tactical RPG developed by Rogue Factor Necromunda: Underhive Wars will be hitting shelves on September 8th and looks promising.

“Deep below the nightmarish, polluted hive cities of Necromunda, in the twisted, vertiginous, dark tunnels of the Underhive, rival gangs fight to the death for personal power, wealth, survival and the honor of their Houses. Only the strongest will survive.

Lead, customize, and grow your gangs of Escher, Goliath, and Orlock. Specialize each member and send them to battle in hazardous dystopian environments.

Learn new skills, get epic loots and bring your evolved gang to 4-player online multiplayer gang fights.

  • Lead and evolve your gangs in this compelling tactical-RPG
  • Follow a rich and well thought out narrative campaign in the Underhive

RPG Maker MV (Sept. 8)

If you’ve ever wanted to make your own RPG it’s never been easier than this, get your hands on RPG Maker MV on September 8.

“RPGMAKER was born to fulfill the desire of creating an original RPG without programming knowledge. Four years have passed since the release of the previous RPGMAKER, VX Ace. The landscape of gaming, especially for RPGs, has changed greatly. So did the needs of our users. With the latest installment, RPGMAKER MV allows the dreams of many of its fans to come true! RPGMAKER can now create RPGs for MacOSX, Android and iPhone.”

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning (Sept. 8)

The very underrated RPG gets a new release in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning on September 8 and I for one can’t wait.

“The hit RPG returns! From the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston comes Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning.  Remastered with extended content, stunning visuals, and refined gameplay, KoA delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world.

  • Uncover the secrets of Amalur, from the vibrant city of Rathir to the vast region of Dalentarth to the grim dungeons of the Brigand Hall Caverns.

Party Hard 2 (Sept. 8)

The sequel to the insanely fun stealth strategy game Party Hard 2 hits store shelves on September 8 and brings something unique to the genre.

“Party Hard 2 is a stealth strategy game about stopping parties by any means. Developed by Pinokl Games and produced by tinyBuild.


The thrilling sequel to 2015’s stealth strategy hit features a brand new character who gets caught up in a no-christmas-bonus situation. The only logical thing to do is to go on a killing spree at the corporate party. 

A brand new 3D graphics engine allows for many more gameplay mechanics previously impossible in the game.”

The Sims 4: Star Wars – Journey to Batuu (Sept. 8)

This one should be an interesting entry seeing that it seems to have angers Sims and star Wars fans alike but maybe it’ll be more enjoyable than we all think…time will only tell and you can find out on September 8.

It’s just your same ole Sims game with a bunch of Star Wars stuff added in…seems like a foolproof sales plan to combine the two but I don’t think this one will go over well with gamers in the end.

Tamarin (Sept. 10)

The new release from Chameleon Games looks to be a fun , wholesome and family friendly 3D platformer and it’s due out on September 10.

“Explore an incredible interconnected 3D world, brimming with primate platforming and bug-splattering shooter action. Leap with the agility of a tamarin as you journey into the Northern wilderness on scenic routes through forests, fjords and mountains. Along the way you will chase mysterious electrical fireflies, discover a secret underground world of dancing ants, rescue innocent birds, and restore the tamarins’ once idyllic natural habitat.”

Wintermoor Tactics Club (Sept. 10)

I’m a sucker for a good tactics game and the new release Wintermoor Tactics Club not only looks like a great addition to the genre it also is a pretty unique addition.

“It was hard enough for Alicia to make friends at prestigious Wintermoor Academy before the whole school erupted into a snowball tournament!  Now, her tiny Tactics Club must transform from nerdy nobodies into the heroes they play in their tabletop campaign, or they’ll be disbanded forever.

Discover the sinister truth behind the War of the Clubs in this cozy tactics RPG. Test your strategic mettle against an avalanche of strange and colorful characters. And don’t forget to make new friends!”

Bounty Battle (Sept. 10)

I always love when games crossover and feature characters from other games I love, the new fighting game from Merge Games Bounty Battle does just that and looks to be a solid fighter as well.

“Bounty Battle is the ultimate indie fighting game: a new 2D fighter, where you can pit your favourite Indie heroes against one another! Indie heroes from games like Guacamelee! Dead Cells, Darkest Dungeon & more battle it out in this fighter frenzy. Bounty Battle features over 25 fighters from over 20 different Indie games! Each fighter comes with their own Minion companion and unique abilities. Battle across levels inspired from the fighters’ native game worlds with up to 3 other players.”

Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York (Sept. 10)

A new addition to the world of Vampire: The Masquerade comes to PS4 on September 10 and promises to bring a more personal and in depth gaming experience for fans of the series.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York is a visual novel video game in development by Polish studio Draw Distance, planned for release on September 10, 2020 as a stand-alone expansion to their 2019 game Coteries of New York. It is based on the Tabletop Roleplaying game and follows Julia of the vampire clan Lasombra, who investigates the death of the Anarch movement’s local leader. Throughout the game, the player makes decisions that cause the narrative to branch”

Minoria (Sept. 10)

A beautifully designed and unique game from Bombservice Minoria is another great entry from the underrated studio.

“Minoria is the latest and most ambitious game from Bombservice, and a spiritual sequel to the Momodora series, from the same studio.Fans of Momodora will find familiar aspects in the design and gameplay elements, as they master the ins-and-outs of parries, dodges, and a variety of different spells.
The presentation has evolved to an HD format, with aesthetics mixing 2D hand-painted backgrounds and cel-shaded characters.”

Spelunky 2 (Sept. 15)

The wildly popular game from Derek Yo finally gets it’s sequel on September 15 and in my opinion it’s one of the better offering for Playstation 4 this month.

“Spelunky 2 builds upon the unique, randomized challenges that made the original a roguelike classic, offering a huge adventure designed to satisfy players old and new. Meet the next generation of explorers as they find themselves on the Moon, searching for treasure and missing family.”

Pacer (Sept. 17)

The first ever arcade racing battle royal game hits shelves on September 17 and looks like it’ll probably be a freaking blast!

Pacer, originally titled Formula Fusion, is a futuristic  arcade battle royal racing game developed by R8 Games for Windows, PS4 and Xbox One. It is set to release on September 17, 2020.A kickstarter campaign by R8 Games was successful in securing over £79,000 to begin development on the game which was released as an early access version through Steam in August 2015. The game was re-branded from Formula Fusion to Pacer in early 2019.”

Crysis Remastered (Sept. 18)

A remastered version of the fan favorite hits store shelves on September 18.

“The classic first person shooter from Crytek is back with the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world, and thrilling epic battles you loved the first time around. What begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war as alien invaders swarm over a North Korean island chain. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, players can become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost strength to lay waste to vehicles. The Nanosuit’s speed, strength, armor, and cloaking allow creative solutions for every kind of fight, while a huge arsenal of modular weaponry provides unprecedented control over play style. In the ever-changing environment, adapt tactics and gear to dominate your enemies, in an enormous sandbox world.”

WWE 2K Battlegrounds (Sept. 18)

WWE is releasing a different take on wrestling games with this newest entry made to be more over the wall and zany than their usual games.

“The world of WWE is your battleground with all-new, over the top, in-your-face arcade action as your favorite WWE Superstars and Legends battle it out in outlandish interactive environments around the world. Compete with your friends in your favorite match types with an arsenal of exaggerated maneuvers, special abilities, and devastating power-ups, including Steel Cage, Royal Rumble, Fatal Four Way and more, as Mauro Ranallo and Jerry “The King” Lawler call all the mayhem! Are you ready to enter the battleground?”

Dungreed (Sept. 24)

I’m a huge fan of Roguelite and Roguelike games and Dungreed looks like an interesting take on them, looking forward to trying this one.

“Dungreed is a 2D side-scrolling action game with 2D Rogue-LITE elements. You become an adventurer exploring a continuously evolving dungeon to prevent the town from being destroyed. Eliminate enemies, use a variety of weapons and magic, eat food, and defeat evil in the dungeon”

Going Under (Sept. 24)

Another unique take on a Roguelite game Going Under takes place in an office setting rather than a dungeon and hits shelves on September 24.

“Going Under is a roguelite-inspired dungeon crawler about exploring the cursed ruins of failed tech startups. You’ll wield office junk as weapons as you battle your way through the forsaken office complexes. Stab a demon with a thumbtack one moment, run over a goblin with a smart car the next–your options in combat are constantly changing.”

Mafia: Definitive Edition (Sept. 25)

In my opinion the Mafia games don’t get the credit they deserve and hopefully this newest release will get it that respect, it hits shelves on September 25.

“Part one of the Mafia crime saga – 1930s, Lost Heaven, IL Re-made from the ground up, rise through the ranks of the Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime. After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that the rewards are too big to ignore. Play a Mob Movie: Live the life of a Prohibition-era gangster and rise through the ranks of the Mafia. Lost Heaven, IL: Recreated 1930’s cityscape, filled with interwar architecture, cars and culture to see, hear and interact with. Re-Made Classic: Faithfully recreated, with expanded story, gameplay and original score. This is the Mafia you remembered and much more.”

The Walking Dead Onslaught (September 29)

Releasing just in time for the show’s finale the new Walking Dead game is completely different from any other Walking Dead game we’ve seen on PS4 so far, especially seeing all of them have been Telltale games so far. this time it gives us a VR experience and hits shelves on September 29.

“There’s no rest when survival is on the line. Step into AMC’s The Walking Dead on PSVR, Oculus Home and Steam VR. Prepare for an onslaught of walkers as you assume the roles of your favorite characters from the show, and confront the horrors and humanity of this apocalyptic new world.”

Netflix Is Working On A Live Action Resident Evil Series

With the success of The Witcher series it was only a matter of time until Netflix adapted another video game into a series and according to an announcement made today that next series will be Resident Evil. According to Netflix the series will be headed up by Constantin Film who’s also responsible for the 6 most recent Resident Evil movies.

The series is seemingly going to be an original story taking place in the Resident Evil universe but separate from past story arcs we’ve seen, focusing on two sisters named Jade and Billie Wesker and their journey to a corporate town to start their lives and the mysteries and dangers surrounding both the town and their father…who may or may not be Albert Wesker, the antagonist from the video game series. There will also reportedly be a time jump at some point of 16 years or so to a dystopian future overrun by zombies, 6 billion to be exact…with only 15 million human beings left alive…

Executive Producer and Writer Andrew Dabb is know for his work on Supernatural is joined by director Bronwen Hughes, known for his work on The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad he will direct at least the first two episodes…no word yet on whether or not the series will be tied to the movies at all and Netflix hasn’t issued any other info on much…No cast or release date yet but certainly something I’m actually looking forward to seeing, which is rare on Netflix these days.

What are your thoughts?

Are you excited for the series or do you think it will bomb?

DC FanDome Is Live Today and Here’s The Scheduled Events

Being stuck at home like so many of us have been can lead to way too much downtime for some but for comic book fans and gamers there will be something to sink their time into for the next 24 hours or so with the live feed of DC FanDome, where they will share details on lots of different comic book titles and gaming news.

24 hours is a lot of time to fill with content and DC isn’t disappointing fans, here’s the scheduled events that start this morning and run for 24 hours.

Multiverse 101 (2:15 – 2:45 pm)

I’m guessing this is a basic explanation of how the DC multiverse works and is probably much needed as they have so many things coming out revolving around the multiverse that it’ll be good to clear some of it up with fans

Introducing Flash (2:40 – 2:50 pm)

I’m assuming this will be focused on the movie as explaining The Flash’s comic book origins would take longer than 10 minutes but I could be mistaken

Beyond Batman (2:50 – 2:55 pm)

Being only 5 minutes I’m not sure what they can even accomplish regarding Batman info but hey here you go…5 minutes about Batman

The Suicide Squad (2:55 – 3:25 pm)

30 minutes about the team of villains forced to be heroes, seeing they’re taking a fill half hour I’m guessing they have a good amount of news on The Suicide Squad

BAWSE Females of Color Within the DC Universe (3:40 – 4:00 pm)

A look at women of color in comic books and future plans to be more inclusive with their stories, I feel they probably need more than 20 minutes for this one but at least they’re talking about it at all

Not really sure about this one but assuming it’s to do with Batman, I’m actually curious to see what they touch on in this 15 minutes.

Chris Daughtry: Performance (4:20 – 4:30 pm)

10 minutes of Chris Daughtry…Just what no one asked for…

The Joker: Put on a Happy Face (4:30 – 4:35 pm)

15 minutes on the villain that’s the other side of Batman’s coin, anything about the Joker will always grab my interest.

Jim Lee Portfolio Review – DC Super-Villain Fan Art (4:35 – 4:45 pm)

A look at the legendary artist’s work , Jim Lee is one of the best out there and I’m looking forward to this one.

A look at the future of the TV series, I kind of thought they gave up on this show so I’m really curious about this one.

I’m assuming a look at the upcoming film Aquaman 2 but with only 10 minutes how much can they really share about it…

“Ask Harley Quinn” (7:15 – 7:25 pm)

I’m hoping this is going to Margot Robbie dressed up as Harley answering fans questions because that would be amazing!

 Wonder Woman 80th Celebration (7:20 – 7:25 pm)

With only 5 minutes I’m guessing this is just going to be a quick nod to the fact that Wonder woman debuted 80 years ago

Tomorrow’s Super Heroes with Jim Lee Brought to You By Gold House (7:25 – 7:40 pm)

Not sure about this one but sounds like they’ll probably discuss some upcoming new characters they have planned.

Shazam! (7:40 – 7:50 pm)

Not really sure if this is going to be focused on the films or the comics but either way they’ve got my attention.

Wonder Woman 1984 – The WW84 Cast Play ‘Werewolf 1984’ (7:50 – 8:12 pm)

I have no clue on this one…really no guess at all

Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time Is Out Today And People Are Loving It

The Samurai Jack cartoon was wildly popular back in it’s day and garnered a cult following of sorts since and much to any fan’s delight the video game based on the popular animated show has finally released today to overwhelmingly positive reactions.

The game is an action platform game featuring the original voice actors from the show as well as locales featured in the classic show. With a dozen weapons or so to master there are many different ways to play for the many different kinds of players out there. Also featuring skill upgrades to further allow you to play the game your own way.

These days when a game releases it’s generally met with lots of negativity, even when the game is pretty good…the fact is gamers have become the worst Karens there are and will always find something to whine about and that’s coming from a gamer of 30+ years now. Samurai Jack: Battle Though Time though has been receiving almost all positive reactions and I thought it’d be fun to share some of how people are reacting on Twitter today with it’s release…so without further delay let’s get to those tweets.

It’s not their first time developing this type of game and they have seemingly done a great job this time around.

This right here is huge…If you want your game to be a success these days then you need to work with content creators online not against them with stupid copyright strikes.

It really was a fantastic show…maybe the success of the game will spawn a reboot???

It’s available on every platform so there’s no excuse for missing out on the fun with this game.

From the sounds of things it’s great on every platform…I’ll certainly be picking it up myself in the next few days…

What are your thoughts?

Were you a fan of the show?

Are you excited to try the game out?

#drdisrespect Returns to Streaming as Soon as Tonight but not on Twitch

After a mysterious ban from Twitch a while back popular streamer Herschel “Guy” Bheam or “Dr. Disrespect” stayed pretty quiet on the subject stating at one time that Twitch hadn’t told him the reason for the ban. lots of theories sprung up about the whats and the whys but nothing seemed to be based in concrete proof. I’m not even sure if anyone knows why he got banned from Twitch to this day but one thing was made apparent today, he’s certainly returning to streaming…

Streaming live on his Instagram today he more than hinted at the fact that he’d be streaming tonight but it wasn’t made too clear which platform he would be using. People have noticed he added a membership button to his Youtube channel so it’s looking as though he’s probably headed over there, at least for the time being.

With all the theories of his ban from Twitch and all his fans just left wondering what the fuck happened I’m sure there will be tons of people there for him when he returns to streaming tonight…he may even end up bigger than he was before this whole debacle.

Anyways let’s see how people on Twitter are responding to the news of doc’s return.

You’re certainly not the only one, that’s for damn sure.

I’m very curious how many members he gets by the end of the day.

People have been waiting around a month to even hear why he got banned, this is great news!

Here’s the kind of cryptic Instagram live video from today and plus a reminder the hashtag is misspelled so I need to change my tags for this post…

I think his stream is going to be huge tonight, so much hype already.

It certainly appears that Youtube is where he’s headed…can’t wait to watch tonight and see the numbers.

What are your thoughts?

Are you excited to see Doc back streaming again?

Television Network G4 Is Making A Comeback In 2021

This years Comic-Con at home event was unique and had tons of exciting news for gamers of all kinds but perhaps the most exciting news for some gamers was the video that aired hinting at the fact that the video game network G4 will be coming back in some form in 2021 sometime.

Before there were thousands of popular streamers and before people got most of their video game news from Youtube there was G4. It was every gamers favorite network at one point or another and when it was at it’s peak with shows like X-Play and Attack of the Show it was the best network around for anything video games and I’m looking forward to having it back in our lives in some shape or form.

G4 was the first place many of us ever saw Happy Tree Friends and it was also my first exposure to Olivia Munn…fucking gorgeous by the way but sorry off topic…there is no word yet exactly how the network will be coming back but logically to me it makes the most sense for them to start a Youtube channel with that having much less overhead than running a TV network. Anyways I’m not the only one excited for the return of G4, let’s take a look at what people are saying on Twitter.

Even IGN seems excited…wouldn’t they be competitors?

They were an influence on a whole generation of gamers.

Attack of the Show making it even more official than it already was.

Wonder if this means she’ll be back on there again.

It was very unique programming especially for it’s time.

Yea I kind of miss watching him and Morgan every evening, don’t miss Adam Sessler so much though…sorry bro. 😦

It really did help many people realize a career in gaming was obtainable.

Inspiration to a whole generation for sure.

History man..history.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited to see the return of G4?

What do you miss most about it?
