Much to our dismay, Mr. David Bowie passed away on the 10th of January, 2016 at the age of 69 from cancer. In memory of this iconic musician, actor, artist and innovator, Square Enix announced that for a limited time, they would be giving away the game “Omikron: The Nomad Soul”, which included Mr. Bowie in the game, for free. Mr. Bowie composed most, if not all, of the music for the game, and even made several cameos in the game (see header image above).
You can claim your free copy for Windows PCs by claiming it from the Square Enix website Here, and entering the promo code “omikron” at checkout. Open the product key after checkout and Right-click/Copy it. Open your Steam app on your PC and click on the [+ ADD A GAME] button on the bottom of the library list. Selecting “Activate a Product on Steam…” on the list that appears will open a window asking for a product key. Then, simply Right-Click/Paste the 15-character product key in the required field to add the game to your library. Viola! You are now the proud owner of “The Nomad Soul”!
Those of us who did that and received the game for free, were really excited to have it. I know I was! At least until I tried to play it…
Ubisoft, in my opinion at least, is pretty much a hit or miss at E3. Granted, this could just be me as i don’t play many Ubisoft games, so there just isn’t as much for me to get excited about. However, that may change this year. Ubisoft announced some new IPs and sequels that all look to be pretty good if not amazing. So lets dive into the news shall we? After all, i’m pretty sure that is why your here

*This review was written at patch 2.51, and will only review features implemented at and before this version of the game.
Final Fantasy has long been one of the most recognized and beloved names in the JRPG genre. Some of the most loved elements of the series include it’s characters, and it’s story. So naturally i was skeptical to try it out as an MMO, even when it had a previous successful MMO with Final Fantasy XI. I shouldn’t have worried however as Final Fantasy XIV has been one of the best games i have played in a while, and definitely the biggest time sink. Continue reading →
Last week was a long tough week and left me with no time to jump on to my Xbox One and enjoy a few games. Then, as we were preparing for the latest podcast, Shot O’ Games, I got a notification from Xbox One Smartglass on my Nokia 925 Windows Phone.
Do you recall this thing that happens every so often called the “Console Wars”? Ya know, that thing where people of all shapes, sizes, ages, genders, classifications, and experience all wage a war on a system (or systems) they deem inferior to their own personal system of choice? This was no different 25 years ago. Only then, bit-count was the battlefield where unnaturally colored woodland creatures, seafaring mammals, and a multitude of other such characters waged a war on the industry giant, defined a generation and revolutionized the gaming industry for all time. This week, we would like to wish a happy birthday to the system that changed it all…Continue reading →
Are you ready for some Pokéhype?! There have been some additions to the Pokémon website recently that added two well known and beloved battlers to the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire page. Continue reading →
Shovel Knight is a classic side scrolling platformer like Mario and Mega Man combined with that childhood lust for beating the other kids in the sandbox with your plastic trowel. In other words, it’s a retro styled nostalgia trip that has the fun and excitement of an old school game with the added bonus of digging tools. Continue reading →
If you’re a Nintendo fan then you should know that they’ve been dishing out some serious information for their future game releases. With an overload of heavy hitter information such as Super Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda and some other Mario franchise titles like Yoshi’s Wooly World and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker some of the other titles may have fallen under your radar, especially if you didn’t watch the live stream. The game I want to focus on is called Splatoon; a new and refreshing take on the 3rd person shooter style game due in 2015 for the Wii U. Continue reading →
