Persona 5’s official website hints at incoming announcement

Details on Atlus’ long awaited Persona 5 have been scarce to say the least in recent months, but we might not have to wait much longer. Persona 5’s official website has posted a running countdown clock that will expire in just a couple of weeks on May 5th.

We know that Atlus’s official stance is that the game is coming out sometime this summer, so it’s possible that the reveal might just be a release date. *fingers crossed*

Originally, Persona 5 was supposed to land in 2015, but was delayed at TGS 2015. There have been a few details that have trickled out in regards to dungeon changes and and storyline, but suffice it to say, we could use a new kickass trailer and official release date to get this hype train rolling.

Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set Review

When people think 'Star Wars', they don't think about Episodes I through III. They think of the original trilogy — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi. Because as much fun as Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ezra, Sabine and the other launch day characters are, I've raised my kids to know who the real stars of this franchise are.

They know that Han hot first. They know that you always let a Wookie win, especially Chewbacca. They know that Luke is a Jedi, like his father before him. They know Princess Leia can doesn't betray the Rebel Alliance in the face of evil. And they know Darth Vader is the best villain ever. With all of this knowledge, all they wanted from Disney Infinity 3.0 was a way to play as these characters and experience their story, then go on to make their own.

Alas, we have the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire play set, which comes with an adventure that spans the events of Episodes IV through VI (differently, though), and comes with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia (Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader are sold separately). From Tatooine  and Hoth, to Endor and the Death Star, the Rise Against the Empire play Set takes you on a journey through your favorite movies with the characters you love the most. But does it do them justice while fitting in with Disney Infinity?

Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Review

It’s here.

It happened.

Disney Infinity finally has Star Wars, and the world is better for it.

After a successful 2.0 that saw the inclusion of Marvel characters and an expanded, refine feature set, Disney Infinity 3.0 is the culmination of ideas, properties, and execution. Disney Infinity is all about making your own adventures, playing how you want to, and at your own pace. It’s enjoyable for the whole family, and the power of Star Wars brings in a whole new fan base to enjoy just how magical the game can be.

While the Toy Box can be overly complicated at times, with each version of Disney Infinity, there are more tools to make things simpler for players. Disney Infinity 3.0 is no exception. There’s something special here, but just how special it can/will be is up to what the players try to get out of the game. Here’s what I took away from my time with Disney Infinity 3.0…

Reviewer’s Note: This review covers the Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack, which comes with Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and the Twilight of the Republic Play Set. It also covers the Toy Box Takeover expansion game, and other figures from Disney, Star Wars, and Star Wars Rebels.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition: Toy Box Speedway Review

Kart racing has arrived in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition in the form of Toy Box Speedway, allowing players to take their Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars characters into a race track stadium and participate in multiple race types across varying themed tracks. The second of two Toy Box Games (the first being Toy Box Takeover), Speedway should appeal to fans of racing and kart games.

Personally, I always found the driving controls and gameplay to be the weakest part of Disney Infinity. It’s a combination of the controls and race tracks for me, but my kids love it. So I was unsure about how I’d feel about a Toy Box Expansion focused solely on racing. I loved the combat and story of Toy Box Takeover, but would that love translate over to speed and glory?

Let’s see how it fared…

May PS Plus games officially revealed for PS4, PS3 and Vita; No Watch Dogs

Earlier this week an image rumored to be from the German PlayStation Network suggested that May's bonus PlayStation Plus games would include Watch Dogs and Tetris. The PlayStation community was thrilled to see a game like Watch Dogs included in the mix, but it looks like  they will have to settle for Tropico 5 instead.

PlayStation has officially revealed the games included in May's lineup, as seen below:

  • Tropico 5 (PS4)
  • Table Top Racing: World Tour (PS4)
  • Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 (PS3)
  • LocoRoco Cocoreccho! (PS3)
  • Switch Galaxy Ultra (PS Vita, PS4)
  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta (PSP, PS Vita)

Looks like PlayStation users and Xbox owners can look forward to an equally lackluster May.

GTA franchise discounted for PS4, PS3 and Vita in PSN sale

Since Grand Theft Auto 5's release in 2013, Rockstar's latest edition to the franchise has been killing it in sales. The game has been included in the top sold games nearly every month since release and it's probably because the franchise is almost always on sale.

GTA 5 has broken a number of records and it has probably been helped out by the inundation of sales around it.

PlayStation users can grab GTA 5 at a discount, along with all the other games in the GTA franchise on PSN right now. If you're picking up GTA 5 with the sale, you'll be happy to know there's no DLC to pick up with it (except in-game cash) and it's probably thanks to GTA Online's success.
