Come to the Dark Side With This Darth Vader Inspired PS4


The system will be available November 17th and will be available in two different bundles. For the hardcore gamers, you can pick up the Star Wars: Battlefront bundle. If you want the system with a more family friendly game, then you can pick up the Disney Infinity 3.0 bundle.  

The system itself has a 500gb hdd and comes with a custom themed controller as well. If you’re a huge Star Wars fan and in the market for a PS4 later this year, this is the one to get. I, for one, would at least like the controller. Check out Playstation Blog for more info on the bundles.

Vega Returns in Street Fighter V


“Let my beauty intoxicate you.”

The Spanish ninja makes his return to the series. Vega is one of the 8 original world warriors and seems deadlier than ever.

Vega looks to play differently, yet the same, this time around. The Flying Barcelona, his signature move, is still part of his move set, but he seems so much more stylish this time around. He is a matador and with his play style in SFV, Capcom seems to have really captured the elegance and grace of a matador with the spins Vega does during his combos. Just because he moves so smoothly, doesn’t mean the Spaniard isn’t just as deadly. He can be seen throwing a barrage of claw slashes during his deadly combos in the video below.

With the latest edition of Vega, that brings the current roster up to 9 characters. It’s to see you back Vega.
