Days Gone Story Preview

Days Gone offers a glimpse of Deacon's life with his love Sarah and their unlikely romance before the apocalypse.

Although showing major traits of being a zombie-apocalypse focused game on the surface, upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone from developer SIE Bend Studio and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment has a lot more to offer as a survival horror action-adventure game.

Primary premise of the game is of course of a global pandemic that wiped out a large number of humankind and it forced Deacon St. John to struggle in a ravaged world just like any other survivors out there but beside that, something else motivates him to go on.

Many people lost their relatives and loved ones during the spread of the deadly disease that turns people into feral cannibalistic creatures. Almost all the survivor has memories from that forgotten past and they move on carrying the burden.

Before everything went downhill, Deacon met a girl named Sarah Whitaker from Seattle and they fell in love, which eventually led them to tie the knot in a small church of Marion Forks with his long-time friend William "Boozer" Gray as the only witness.

With her unique charm and care, she has soften him up from a nomad biker into a loving husband, so much so that he left behind his longtime ties to Mongrel Motorcycle Club in a pursuit of living a new life together for as long as they could.

Two years have been passed since and Sarah is long gone, leaving John to go out as a bounty hunter with nothing but a photo of her to remember by. He goes to the same church on a rainy night briefly reliving those memories but only to be ambushed shortly.

Marvel's Spider-Man Adds Fantastic Four-Themed Suits

Insomniac Games have added the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in the latest update for Marvel's Spider-Man.

As developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment finished rolling out "The City That Never Sleeps" DLC series for their PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel's Spider-Man, fans can still hope for some new content.

If you have finished rounding up New York City in his iconic red and blue suit alongside tons of other versions that was introduced to the game so far, then it is time for you to try out some new suits, two new Fantastic Four-themed suits to be specific.

Wondering what Fantastic Four and Spider-Man have in common? Well, ever since the Wall-Crawler debuted as a hero in his teens, he tried to join "World's Greatest Family" showing off his talent but only ended up fighting them instead.

The family of four has teamed-up with the Webhead on multiple occasions and was even featured in many mini-series of their own. One of the writers of the game, Christos Gage (Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion, World War Hulk – X-Men) has penned one in 2010 titled "Spider-Man/Fantastic Four".

In Amazing Spider-Man #258, Spidey goes to Fantastic Four headquarter seeking help to get rid of the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume, which later eventually became Venom. They were successful of getting rid of the suit but he was left only in his underpants.

Spider-Man had to borrow one of their costumes but since they don't have masks, the Human Torch had to improvise an idea to conceal Peter Parker's secret identity and he gave him a grocery bag to wear, thus came the identity of the Bombastic Bag-Man.

Then there was another instance following "Big Time" story arc, when the Wall-Crawler joined the team for real but then they were calling themselves the Future Foundation. This time, Spidey wore a slick-looking black and white costume.

Now, players can simply fancy themselves wearing the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in Marvel's Spider-Man with the release of patch 1.14 on PlayStation Network. With the Fantastic Four returning to Marvel Comics once again, these new suits came just in time.

Death Stranding Confirmed for 2019 by Best Buy?

According to listing of the game on Best Buy, Hideo Kojima's long-awaited title Death Stranding maybe releasing in 2019.

During mid-November 2018, a Brazilian website suggested citing an anonymous source that we are about to get an official release date for upcoming action game Death Stranding by video game legend Hideo Kojima at The Game Awards 2018 event.

Unfortunately, that never happened as the man himself announced on Twitter that he couldn't make it this time. However, social media was curious for any clues regarding the release date and according to Best Buy, the game is coming in 2019.

Developer studio Kojima Productions never announced an official release date but a recent image from retailer outlet Best Buy discovered on social news aggregation site Reddit states that the game will be available in 2019.

Hmmmmmm... from r/DeathStranding

Even if the listing is to be taken seriously, we are still in the dark about exactly when it is going to drop because aside from a release year of 2019, it has nothing else. The only reason we take this leak seriously because of Kojima also teasing of launching it this year.

In an interview with video game magazine Famitsu back in December 2018, he asked whether 2019 is the year of the Whale, even though it actually is the year of the pig. Since people saw whales in the promotion of his game, they have reason to believe this to be a tease for a launch date.

What we are estimating right now is that we may get another look at it at E3 2019 with more footage and then finally releasing the game within the next few months after that, most possibly somewhere around October. Nothing is set in stone though.

Action oriented Death Stranding is an upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive title from Kojima Productions and Sony Entertainment that was revealed back in 2016 and is considered as one of the most-anticipated video game titles ever.

Christmas is over and so is 2018. So, nearing the edge of the year, Sony Entertainment came up with new free games lineup that is coming soon in January 2019 for PlayStation Plus subscribers to celebrate the New Year.

We previously thought that the October 2018 lineup was bad with Friday the 13th: The Game and Laser League but last month, we changed our minds when we saw PS Plus including games like Soma or Onrush for November 2018, because that just made it worse.
