When the OUYA kickstarter first launched I don't think anyone would have anticipated the amount of support it would receive and man did it receive a lot of support. The OUYA kickstarter capped off yesterday well above its initial goal of 950K and ended at a little above 8.5M with over 63, 000 backers. This is clearly a node to the big three, OUYA is here and it's going to be big.
Since it's announcement there have been several big reveals about OUYA; the first is that it will allow for streaming games using Onlive, they've announced their first 1st party title-Human Element, and several media streaming services will also be part of OUYA including VEVO, iHeartRadio, XBMC and TuneIn. Additionally OUYA has partnered with Square Enix to put Final Fantasy III on the console.
OUYA is causing quite a stir and you can expect more news before anyone can get their hands on the console which is expected to ship to backers in March 2013 and to everyone else sometime after.

I have to say, the more I see of Watchdogs Legion, the more I can't wait to get my hands on it. Watchdogs Legion is shaping up to be quite the ambitious game. This trailer shows us some more of the characters we can recruit and play as: from the run-of-the-mil to a professional. We even get a glimpse of this games "bad-guy". Watchdogs Legion is set to be release this October 12th. What I really like is the player choice in this game. We can recruit based on our play-style.

I want to start a weekly series of discussion post where a topic is picked and we have an open discussion of our thoughts and opinions. I have a few topics in mind but I open the floor to suggestions. In the video game industry, today's games usually have several modes unique to them. Two of those modes, single-player and multiplayer have become a norm for most game. Single-player is all about experiencing the story behind the game, watching beautifully rendered cut scenes and getting to know the main character(s). Multiplayer on the other hand is all about interacting with multiply players across the world while adhering to the game world and mechanics. There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above. In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can
The year 2020 was set to be a phenomenal year for video games; and don't get me wrong, it still is. However, a lot of the games that were coming out early in the year have since been DELAYED. The Final Fantasy VII Remake, Doom Eternal and now the wildly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 from CD Projekt Red, creators of the acclaimed Witcher series has also been delayed. How long is this delay you ask? Well the game was set to be out in April but now it's slated for September. That is an unbelievably long time to wait for a game that's been on everyone wanted list. Sigh. CD Projekt Red confirmed the delay via a message on their twitter page and the later in an official post. Sad to see this happen to a game I was literally planning on making my life for the next few years. ==== Courtesy of Games News Network
