Child of Light Looks Impressive, Must Own

I don’t know how many of you have seen Ubisoft’s Child of Light but the game looks mighty impressive.  I simply love the art style and visual direction of the game.  It’s launching next week on April 30th for $14.99 on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.  The game is just beautiful.

I would normally stray away from games that are also available on Xbox 360 but this one is moving up on my must have list.  In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying it.  Check the link out above for a few good details on the game.  You can also check out the most recent trailer.

You Can Co-op if You Want: Two-player co-op is built into “Child of Light,” but it’s entirely possible to complete the game solo (as long as you’re not playing on the hardest difficulty setting).

Turn, Baby, Turn: The game’s turn-based, Japanese RPG-style battle system is familiar — and yet, dropped into the context of a sidescroller, it feels strangely new. Combat in “Child of Light” utilizes a mechanic similar to active-time battle systems found in games like the Final Fantasy series.

Browser Warnings via Firefox and Others

Just a head’s up for those of you getting security warnings when you visit the site. No, I haven’t added any malware software or anything malicious to harm your computer. Yesterday, there was a plugin that apparently got hacked and Google implemented a warning on the site as a precaution. The plugin has since been removed which explains why you don’t see the countdown clock anymore. Yes, the countdown clock was (from what I can gather) the plugin that added some weird script causing Google to tag the site.

I’ve requested another review from Google and hopefully the problem has been resolved.  If so, the warning should be removed in the next 24 hours.

Live Show Today at 10AM CST

Have you noticed the countdown clock in the top right corner of the website?  That’s where you’ll find the days, minutes and seconds until the next live show.  I won’t always post a reminder so the best thing to do is to check the site’s countdown clock.  If there’s no countdown, then there’s no show coming up.  I’ll always have the timer set to the next live show so be sure you check.

Anyway, here are the details for tomorrow’s show.  Tune in, call in, Skype in and enjoy the return of the live show that started the trend. Saturday at 10AM Central Standard Time.

Play of the Week – PvZ: Garden Warfare

I know you might be hesistant on this game because of its previous versions on tablets etc.  But let me tell you one thing … this game is a lot of fun.  It’s available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One so there’s little excuse not to try it.  I was skeptical myself until I played it.

I know you’re out there getting your fix of Titanfall but if you can find some time you should look into Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare.  There is free DLC being pushed to the title so PopCap is definitely supporting it.
