*Note - OUYA release was 9/30/14

I have just completed my review of Slightly Magic 8-bit Legacy Edition for the OUYA. Slightly Magic is a character driven platformer highly influenced by the mechanics of Codemasters' Dizzy. It is currently available for PC, Mac, Linux, OUYA, Android, and iOS.

I must extend a special thanks to Colin Jones for keeping me in the development loop since the very beginning. Without his help this review would not have been possible.

Announced at New York Comicon this weekend, NECA has unveiled the new prototype figure for the long requested protagonist of Capcom's Devil May Cry series, Dante.
The figure is rumored to have over 30 points of Articulation, will measure at 7 Inches in height, and include accessories such as his famous Blade The Rebellion, and 2 additional Gun accessories. The figure does not have a speculated price point yet, but judging from previous Video Game figure releases from NECA, he will most likely retail anywhere from $21.99 - $29.99.

This is wonderful news for fans of the DMC series, as most Dante Figures have been produced by Play Arts Kai, which while offering them in really high quality, have really high price points!

NECA does a fantastic job with their sculpts, so this will be an awesome figure to look out for in early 2015 this year.

Game Informer had the pleasure to interview Michiteru Okabe, the producer of the upcoming sequel to Resident Evil: Revelations. Their video shows some early gameplay footage and discloses details about what the team is focusing on during the development of the game.

If you were disappointed with the "action-packed" atmosphere of the few recent Resident Evil titles, Revelations 2 might be something worth your attention, as the game seems to be a return to the more traditional cramped, dark and puzzle-oriented past of the series. Okabe mentions that the series is internally treated as a separate IP, giving the team more creative freedom.

The website also promises to release new information on October 10th - we'll definitely keep you posted!

Final Fantasy XIII received a PC announcement earlier this year, along with various other Final Fantasy games. Released yesterday, gamers found that Final Fantasy XIII is locked to 720p resolutions, as well as being 55GB. Due to this...outrage, Durante (known for releasing DSFix for Dark Souls and GeDoSaTo for Dark Souls 2 and other various games) released a quick fix to increase the resolutions available for the games.

You can download the fix here on Durante's blog.

Of course, there are a few bugs that come with this fix as it's currently a "pre-alpha" tool.

Playstation Now has been a neat take on giving users the chance to stream games on their PS4 and PS3 systems. While it's had some ups and downs since launch with its price points and lack of first party offerings, it has started to ramp things up and reform itself in the past few weeks. Now Sony has just announced that the streaming service will not only be hitting PSTV, which launches in America on 10/14, but will ALSO be hitting the Playstation Vita on the same day!

Unfortunately at this time, Sony has offered no real information other than the following quote from their PSTV Ultimate FAQ.

Oddly enough, it would appear most games available for streaming on PSTV will be VITA, PSP, PSONE Classics, and Minis. No word or insight has been given on what types of games will be available for the Vita to stream, though it can be assumed it will be the same demo list PS3 users had during the open Beta, or the current PS3 offerings available for PS4 NOW streaming.

It's also an odd move for Sony to be adding most of the Vita's library for streaming on the Playstation TV and not other platforms. It can be assumed they may come to PS4 at a later date, however this still means that they are actively offering a cheaper product that can play Vita games, which could only serve to push people away from purchasing a Playstation Vita.

What's everyone else's opinion on this? Does the Playstation TV entice you enough to purchase one, knowing you can stream a large amount of content to it for play now?

Driveclub is a driving game/graphical showcase for the PS4... or should I say, will be. The game's been continously delayed; what was supposed to be a launch title has been pushed back again and again.

And, again... again.
