The Last of Us Remastered PS4 Bundle is A Canada Exclusive

Our fellow gamers up North will be receiving a pretty sweet deal in the form of The Last of Us: Remastered PS4 bundle. Available exclusively in Canada at various major retailers the package will include the PS4 console, a code to download The Last of Us: Remastered and a dualshock controller, all for $449. Seeing as PS4s go for $50 (Ouch) more in Canada than it does in the US, gamers are getting the game for free (Yay!).

The bundle will release alongside the game tomorrow.

Best Buy Canada Mistakenly Sold Xbox ONE Consoles for $45 CAD Each

Due to perhaps one of the most obvious errors in video games retail history, Best Buy Canada has sold a number of Xbox ONE consoles for $44.99 (it even came with Rayman Legends). According to the inter-dimensional gob nobblers as well as the reddit community most of these orders were cancelled but a select few made into gamers’ hands. Photos of receipts and the consoles are pictured above.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods gets a Limited Release in US and Canadian Theaters

FUNimation Entertainment has announced that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods will be getting a limited release this summer. Over 350 screens will show the new animated film across the US and Canada on August 5, 6, 7 and 9.

Battle of Gods is an original story from Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. The official plot synopsis reads:

Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it’s too late. Only Goku, humanity’s last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe!

“We’re very excited to be bringing Battle of Gods to movie theaters across the country this summer,” explained Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of FUNimation Entertainment. “Dragon Ball Z has always been a huge part of everything we do at FUNimation and, speaking as a fan myself, I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.”

Goat Simulator Review

Every once in a while a game comes out that defies all logic and reason, and absolutely has no meaning to it whatsoever other than to provide entertainment to its players. Goat Simulator is one of those games. It’s chaotic, hilarious and absolutely makes no sense, which makes this game particularly difficult to review given that even the developer said that it would keep all the bugs save for the game crashing ones.

In space no one can hear you baaah…

Goat Simulator is a sandbox game in which you play a goat; there is no story, just pure unadulterated goat themed fun… for about 6-7 hours. The world provided is very limited and as are the things to do in it. Most of the jokes lose their potency very quickly because of the limited size of the world and therefore the limited content within, they are fun the first few times around, but it’s just that sacrificing people to a pentagram kind of losses it’s charm three or four times in. You get challenges that you can try to accomplish however there is no payoff for doing them and ultimately the points are pointless (no pun intended). There are collectables hidden and scattered around the world that unlock different goat skins with different powers that do add to the experience a bit.  Ultimately there is no progression whatsoever.

Final Verdict:

Don’t get me wrong, Goat Simulator is fun.

The core of the game is just running around head-butting things in order to send them flying or to get them to explode. Just about everything in the world is destructible and of course your powerhouse of an animal is capable of dismantling all of it. There are different items and powers your goat can acquire such as a jet-pack or demonic powers that send you souring sky high. On top of that you can use your goat’s tongue to drag things around the map setting elaborate traps for those pesky humans or just dragging something in the middle of the road to be hit by a speeding vehicle. The game is a total mess, but that’s what makes it so charming, so few games are so chaotic and unpredictable that being intentionally messy is a welcome charm of the game.

Overall Goat Simulator is a good game, it’s fun with some great ideas but due to its limited size falls short of being B-A-A-A-A-DAZZ.

-Hey… I needed to put a goat pun somewhere in here!

PlayStation 4 Getting A $50 Increase In Canada

It seems being a late adopter of the PlayStation 4 won’t have any benefits for Canadian gamers out there who have yet to purchase a console. Sony Computer Entertainment Canada confirmed to Toronto Sun, that the PS4 will go up from its original price of $399.99 to $449.99. Additionally the console’s peripherals will also go; the PlayStation Camera and Dualshock 4 controller will be raised from $59.99 to $64.99. The price increase will go into effect on the 15th of March.

The consoles scarcity continues and the Canadian publication states that this is the case in Canada as it is very difficult to find one. Here’s hoping once there is enough supply to meet demand, the console and its accessories will drop back to their original prices.

The Last of Us Street Date Broken: For Sale Early in Canada

Reports have come in that gamers in Canada can now get their hands on The Last of Us PlayStation 3 Exclusive from the creators of the Uncharted series. A number of gaming outlets are re-sharing this, however the original props goes directly to Reddit where you can find the entire story. If retailers are caught selling games ahead of the date then they may be fined up to a very large amount.

Corporate Gamestop as well as mom-and-pop shops have been guilty of this illegal but mostly beloved underground industry practice typically with titles like the annually anticipated Call of Duty series by Activision. Naughty Dog once said they were out for the big dogs, and this is definitely another monumental moment on their journey and testament to their triumph carving out a new for themselves with creating vivid New IP’s like The Last of Us and Uncharted.
