What would it look like if your favorite video game characters all had dating profiles?
Video game protagonists have it rough. They usually have to take care of everyone, single-handedly, all by themselves. Many of them are far too busy to give dating a shot, since they never have any free time. But now that some of them have finished the game, they can relax and mingle. And what better way to seek out some company than joining Tinder? Here’s just a few profiles we could see. Let us know in the comments who you’d swipe left or right for.
There’s more in store if you want. Comment and share, we will make more.
Another month, another round of games up for grabs if you have a premium account on Xbox, PS4, and Switch. Consider the following for your enjoyment. PlayStation has been particularly generous this month, with 6 total games, all of which are fairly decent and fresh. But first…
Xbox Live Gold
Overcooked! – Ever wanted to work in a kitchen? Now you can, with this fast and frenetic game. Featuring a multitude of settings and crazy dishes, this game will have you running back and forth with haste as you try to prepare dish after dish. And problem after problem will arise. Can you handle that? Honestly, I think working a kitchen in real life is hard enough. I can’t imagine doing it for fun. Still, surprisingly enough, you may learn a thing or two about culinary arts with this creative game.
Victor Vran – Did you enjoy the Van Helsing games? How about a direct knockoff? Because this action RPG is full of paranormal monster hunting action. Now, no, it’s not actually provable to be a knockoff, but clearly, some inspiration happened.
Stuntman: Ignition – If you’re a Forza Horizon fan (and you sure as hell know I’m one), you might be interested in this previous gen title. This game is what the title implies, a racing game based on performing crazy, action-filled, driving sequences for the movies. These are basically what the “showcase events” became in Forza. Only you do showcase events all the time, instead of just here and there.
Hitman: Blood Money – AKA THE BEST HITMAN GAME EVER MADE (fight me). This iteration of Hitman was the last of its kind before the soft reboot from Absolution. Offering a wide variety of very memorable and unique assignments, Blood Money will take you across the world to meet interesting people and kill them. From hillbilly swamp to a vineyard, a festival, and a rave, this game will stick in your mind as you enjoy some of the most ludicrous murders ever put to a game.
Friday the 13th The Game – This game had a troubled release, due to being a multiplayer only game that had several server issues. Now that it’s been out for a while, it runs a lot better. Enjoy the game of cat and mouse as you either play as the innocent campers trying to survive the night. Or, play as Jason and hunt those campers down. If you are a fan of slasher/horror films, you are almost guaranteed to have a good time, playing as one of horror’s most iconic figures.
Laser League – Ever want to play a Tron game? I mean, a GOOD Tron game? This might be the ersatz winner for you. Dropped into a neon-lit multiplayer arena, you fight other plays while simultaneously dodging walls and traps. Man, this month is big on multiplayer.
The Bridge – Have you ever looked at a painting by MC Escher and thought, “yeah, I’d like to walk around in that?” Here’s the game for you. A puzzle platformer based on perspective, physics, and rotation make this game a smart and challenging title. Dig in as you try to wrap your head around the ominous ins and outs of a 2d game that possibly exists in four-dimensional space. And stuff.
2046: Read Only Memories – If a solid point-and-click adventure is your jam, here’s an interesting sci-fi adventure for you. This title features a retro, pixel art design that is growing more and more popular the world of new age P&C adventure titles. Prepare to be engrossed in a tale of rogue AI and a few of your favorite video game voice actors.
Master Reboot – Bringing the list of sci-fi games into a triple threat, this title is a new adventure that has you navigate your way through a series of fragmented memories to uncover a dark tale. There are several puzzles to solve, and the variety of stages varies greatly. So there’s plenty of surprises to be had in this cyberpunk caper.
Rocketbirds 2: Evolution – And finally, if all you really want is to enjoy a solid, twin-stick shooter experience, you have this. A comedic tale of the avian variety, you will be taken through a series of tough and engaging levels. An absolutely action-packed experience.
Nintendo are going all-in on their retro console experience, sharing more and more NES games that you can take with you anywhere. These games are pixel perfect. What’s new for October? You will be getting NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball.
Shadow Warrior 2 appears to be free on GOG.com and will be good to download for 11 days from the time of posting.
Sony recently announced one of the most amazing looking Limited Edition PS4 consoles. The new God of War PS4 Pro bundle will be released alongside the game on April 20th. The metallic silver and gray custom system is also covered in God of War decals. For $400 you get the fully customized PS4 Pro, a Leviathan Gray Dualshock 4 with the God of War logo, a physical copy of the game, and some exclusive digital content.
This recent announcement prompted me to go into full fanboy mode and debate (with myself of course) which of the limited edition PS4’s is the best. Since I couldn’t come to which is the best, here are my top 10 in no particular order:
Taco Bell Edition/ Golden Dubai
When Taco Bell ran the contest to win an exclusive gold PS4, it was the first time I had ever taken part in the craziness that is winning a sweepstake. Unless of course you count McDonald’s Monopoly, which no one should because everyone plays it. Anyway the arrogant gold with black accents look is amazing. I cant help but feel super jealous of anyone who actually won one of these beauties. Quick honorable mention goes to the Dubai Edition PS4 that was made of actual 24k gold and retailed for like $16,000 or something ridiculous.
Destiny Taken King Edition
I’ve always been a mega fan of white colored consoles and electronics. something about that white glistening amongst the rest of your electronics is super satisfying in a weird way. The Destiny Taken King PS4 managed to take things a step further in terms of beauty with the incredibly well detailed sketched in decal. The final icing on the cake though? The gold emblem on top. Absolute beauty.
Full disclosure: I am a ridiculous Metal Gear fan boy. Kojima can literally do no wrong and it’s still f*ck Konami till I die. Except for Yu-Gi-Oh, I love that sh*t. Anyway the Metal Gear Solid V PS4 could very well be my absolute favorite console of all time. My god, the two tone burgundy and black with the slight hint of gold. Just stunning. The moment I saw the console I knew the type of romantic trouble I was getting myself into. And here we are.
This one is no brainer. If you didn’t think this was going to make the list you are 100% crazy. No questions asked. The 20th anniversary PS4 is one of the most sought after collectible consoles of all time. Making a PS4 that looks like the console that put most of us on this crazy life long adventure was an absolutely genius business decision. More so, its a decision that spawned what is undeniably one of the most nostalgia inducing console designs of all time. It’s beautiful, meaningful, and irreplaceable. Than you Sony for changing gaming forever.
Final Fantasy Type 0
When the Final Fantasy Type 0 PS4 was announced I realized how much I actually appreciate the burgundy/blood red color scheme. This console added the two tone concept by make the HDD plate black with gold accents. It came out incredible stunning and there isn’t much more hat can be said. Honorable mention in this field is the Final Fantasy 15 console which opted for a standard black finish with a laser etched image of the world of FF15.
The Uncharted 4 makes the list without concern for being the first PS4 to sport my favorite color. Something about the classy feeling of the steel blue/cool grey just pulls a flame of confidence out of me. Coupled with the etched in drawing of Nathan Drake himself on top, it really give the console a pristine look.
Bruce Lee Edition
When EA received the rights to use Bruce Lee’s likeness in UFC 3, they wasted no time trying to capitalize on his name. Not only was he one of the best fighters in the game, but he also got a whole console themed after him. The extremely bright yellow PS4 with the black accents was designed to resemble Mr. Lee’s iconic sparring pants. A little too bright for me but definitely one of the most uniquely designed consoles on the list. This was also one of those that had to be won rather than simply purchased.
Monster Hunter World
Sleek and powerful. The glossy black with a massive beast on the top seemingly covered in something else’s blood. Thats the Monster Hunter World PS4. It looks like a Monster Hunter game and that in itself is incredible. Definitely one of the most aggressive looking PS4 consoles to ever be made. Just bask in its glory. Oh and of course the control would have the beautiful burgundy, black, and gold combination I love. And that color scheme seems to be really popular amongst Japanese developers.
Available in either black or white the Dragon of Dojima arrived in style. No matter which you chose you were treated to an astoundingly detailed dragon etched into the hard drive cover. The dragon art style resembles the authentic Yakuza tattoo styles that have become iconic throughout the world. The only disappointing part was that there was nothing special about the control. Just got a base black or white Dualshock 4.
God of War
And of course the God of War PS4. I already described it up above so here’s some pictures.
“Enter the World of Assassination in style as you play Hitman using this one of a kind PlayStation 4 console. Custom fashioned as a replica of Agent 47’s suitcase, this ultimate collector’s item for any Hitman fan” That’s the direct line from the product page on Square Enix official website. It’s still up. The item isn’t available but it’s still up. This insanely detailed console was available to any member of the Square Enix rewards program. Look at it. What a way to please the long time series fans.
