Published on Wednesday, 06 March 2013 04:39
The D-O-double G, Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion as he is now branding himself is no stranger to videogames and gamers. Whether it be performing at the Spike Video Game Awards or featuring in a stage of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Snoop has shown he can successful transition into the world of gaming. It therefore comes as little surprise that a new game has been announced from Echo Peak studio called Way of the Dogg for XBLA , PSN, iOS and Android. Each level of the game features Snoop Dogg fighting an adversary to the sounds of one of his own songs. The battle is won through a rhythm based gameplay mechanic.
In discussing his latest video game venture Snoop Dogg said in a statement, "Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games whether it’s droppin’ my hits on the soundtrack or showing the world I can go toe-to-toe with the best fighters on the street," He went on to add, "Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music," A release date for Way of the Dogg has yet to be announced.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
