Short Pause Sunday Post

Short Pause Sunday Post

FFXIV_2.0_Concept.jpg

I've somehow managed to pry myself away from my PlayStation 4 long enough to bring you this week's Sunday Post — which was no easy task since I'd much rather be wandering Eorzea right now. Yes, I'm a full blown FFXIV: A Realm Reborn addict! I'm still feeling the effects of playing 'til 5AM yesterday morning, but what can I say? Ranking up my carpenter and blacksmith is more fun than I ever thought it would be.

We are one week away from the arrival of the Borderlands 2 PlayStation Vita Slim Bundle, God of War Collection for Vita, as well as MLB: The Show 14 for the PlayStation 4. This would be a good week to spend knocking out that backlog before May's rush of games arrives — or you could just spend it in Eorzea like I'm sure Taz, Ben, and I will.

This week's only major retail release is The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and while I normally avoid movie tie-ins for good reason (they're usually atrocious), I have to admit that after seeing this latest gameplay video (that swing mechanic!), coupled with that pre-order $49.99 sale price, the game has a certain level of appeal to it.

On the digital front, Daylight finally arrives on the PlayStation 4 after a slight delay. I'm looking forward to playing it with the lights off in 3D!  But the crown jewel of this upcoming week may very well be Ubisoft's Child of Light, an incredible looking JRPG built on the Rayman Origins engine that looks to mix classic RPG combat with modern storybook visuals. This one needs to be on your radar!
