I would love to write a long blog post here but, apparently, I have a game to get done by 4/20 so I gotta get back to work as soon as possible.

God of War (PS4)

God of War (PS4)God of War (PS4)

First, let me say that this is my favorite release day of my entire career. If I live to be 100, I do not think I will be able to top this release day.

There has been a long journey just to reach this point, so it’s a little bittersweet to think that we are only a few months away from that journey finally coming to an end. While I am sad, I am also excited because it means everyone will get their hands on this crazy adventure we have been crafting for nearly five years!

You can check out the trailer below!

So, April 20, 2018…mark the date on your calendar, people. Clear that schedule, tell your significant other they are wonderful, because that is always a nice thing to do, and then wonder what you will do with all that free time you have now that you don’t need to keep asking me when the release date is.

Thank you everyone for your continued support of our game-making addiction. I will do my best to keep sharing information as we head towards launch.

…But wait, there’s more! I’m proud to share our limited Collector’s Editions and Digital Deluxe Edition, whose every component is connected back to the Norse universe and story of our game.

Check Out The New Super Daryl Deluxe Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

Like new games? Are you looking for new experiences? Well we may have a little something for your game cravings. As reported and revealed via the PlayStation Blog. Dan and Gary Games have revealed Super Daryl Deluxe a new gaming experience heading to PS4. You can check out the trailer and details below:

It all started way back in the before times when Gary studied game design at the Rochester Institute of Technology. You see, Gary used to like games and wanted to create his own, except he couldn’t do it by himself. He needed someone blessed with talent to make his dream come true. So, sitting in Gary’s childhood room one summer away from college, Gary finally suggested to me (blessed with talent) that we try making a game to get babes. He would program and I would learn how to draw and use a computer.

Like all great games, Super Daryl Deluxe was inspired by our experiences from high school. I’m not entirely sure what the goal was at this stage, because neither of us could have imagined the sheer scale of the game nearly five years later. It must’ve been equal parts staving off boredom, a desire to rekindle the stupid crap we used to laugh at with our friends, delusion, and an ultimatum from the Saudi government.

Super Daryl Deluxe

The project basically began as a half-baked RPG duct-taped together with a stupid collection of inside jokes told through the lens of a character named Daryl Whitelaw – the greasiest, most unsavory, mouth-breathing, business-in-the-front-party-in-the-back, bottlenecked new kid we could conjure. The working title of the project was I Survived, a nod to the statement on the front of the shirts Gary and I sold in high school that documented the harrowing events our class had to endure, like Swine Flu and the time the principal told us we couldn’t sell shirts.

Super Daryl Deluxe is an RPGvania with brawler-style combat set inside of a perfectly normal, sprawling, multi-dimensional high school. The game sports a customizable style of combat. Whether it’s melee or poison or combo or utility skills, Daryl’s mysterious self-help book grants him dozens of neato tush-kicking options to cater to almost any playstyle (there are no golfing skills, I’m afraid). He can only equip five at a time, of course, so finding the right combination that works for you is key. And like any combat game worth its salt, every skill can be upgraded to unlock its full potential.

(Editors Opinion: I look forward to this game as it sports a gaming style more to my personal preference. I love the 2D style side scroller brawler type games. As this looks up my alley as my inner trophy whore is honestly intrigued to play this title. One can only hope that since it doesn’t release this year that hopefully there will be a playable build available at this years PSX.)

Need For Speed Payback Gameplay Trailer

What’s Up Playstation Nation,

Looks like we got another Need For Speed game releasing on November 10th 2017. From the look of things it’s nothing but “Payback”,  Need for Speed Payback that is. Need For Speed Payback is a little more than just a racer, with adding some really cool looking car takedowns, similar to what we’ve seen from the Burnout franchise. With some wonderful gameplay shown driving the Ford Mustang GT and the Koenigsegg, I wonder what other cars this game has in store. Let us know what you think in the comments below.NFS-payback
