"Discovery" For PSVR On Sale Posted by Richard on January 22, 2018 at 12:08 AM CST:
The Minecraft clone for PSVR called "Discovery" is on sale for the first time that I've seen, temporarily marked down to $4.79 USD. The only review I could find praised the game's easy controls but the reviewer though it was pointless, as there are no enemies or goals. You simply explore. dig, or build. Forum link.
Let's Nominate A LEGO Game For Steam's " The “Soul Of Vitruvius” Award" Posted by Richard on November 23, 2017 at 07:17 PM CST:
As seen on Steam's nomination page: The Vitruvian Man was Leonardo’s celebration of the ideal form. And in that spirit the SASC looks to celebrate the game with the most lovingly rendered character… be it human, alien, anthropomorphic cat people, or even a piece of produce.. Vitruvius is also a character in The LEGO® Movie, and that gives me an idea, please check it out in the details.
"Discovery" Aims To Fill The Minecraft VR Gap On PSVR Posted by Richard on November 13, 2017 at 08:21 PM CST:
While Minecraft has VR available for Oculus Rift And Gear VR, it sadly lacks an official version for the Playstaion VR. Last week, a game called "Discovery" launched on the PSVR, for 11.99 USD. I imagine Discovery's developer wanted to bring a Minecraft-like experience to fans who have the PSVR rather than more expensive PC and phone platforms. The game's icon even spoofs Minecraft's, consisting of three very dirt blocks arranged like The Legend Of Zelda's Tri-Force. Forum link.

LEGO Worlds Tittle Update 3 Out, New DLC Posted by Richard on October 26, 2017 at 08:07 PM CST:
My copy of LEGO® Worlds on Steam received an update containing over 1 GB of new content and UI improvements. The UI additions are focused around building walls and houses more easily, among other things. The "Monsters pack" DLC is also now available for $3.99. The DLC also appears in the Switch console's online store, so I imagine the tittle update and DLC is available on all current consoles. You can see the patch notes on the LEGO Worlds Steam News page.

LEGO Worlds In Switch's Top 15 Sellers Posted by Richard on October 12, 2017 at 05:39 PM CST:
According to Nintendo, LEGO® Worlds placed 11th place in September's best sellers list. Minecraft took 8th place in the same chart, so I'd say LEGO Worlds is doing relatively well on the system. Forum link.
Preorder Ninjago At Gamestop, Get Minifigure And Coupon Posted by Richard on September 23, 2017 at 06:50 PM CST:
Gamestop is offering two bonuses for pre-ordering and purchasing "The Ninjago Movie Videogame". The freebies are a Loyd minifigure, and a $5.00 USD coupon on the movie itself. I would personally urge you to find a retailer not owned by GameStop or it's parent company. At least once money has mysteriously disappeared from my preorders. Recently, they made a "mistake" on my Destiny 2 reservation, refused to refund it and offered to fix it by selling me the correct version at an additional charge. Forum link.
