Show of hands, who all played R.B.I. Baseball on their NES? Put your hands down, I can’t see them anyway. Now it’s back, with new graphics but still sporting the 2-button controls and fast-paced action. In fact, according to its official page, players can expect to beat a full game in about 20 minutes or less. Then, you can choose from Exhibition, Season, and Postseason Modes.

“R.B.I. 14” is set to release first on the PS3, Xbox 360, Android and iOS and later on the PS4 and Xbox One. What? No Wii U? Come on, it’s a remake of an NES title, people!

(Sigh.)

Minecraft sells 12 Million Copies on Xbox 360


Mojang’s Minecraft has hit 12 million sold, an accomplishment that makes it “one the most successful Xbox 360 games ever” according to Xbox Wire.  In that article, Daniel Kaplan says that the Mojang team would have been happy to sell 1 million copies and never dreamed of selling 12 million on the 360.
With Minecraft coming out sometime in the future for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita, this juggernaut doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.  And really, who would want it to?
Creepers.

Assassin’s Creed Comet: Play as the “Bad Guys” 
Some people just root for the bad guys.



Many Star Wars fans groaned when Darth Maul got, um, mauled in the Phantom Menace. Some movies and TV shows, like Law Abiding Citizen a few years ago and The Shield before that, make you want to root for the bad guy because they’re so cool. Wrestling fans cheered for Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock when they were, you guessed it, bad guys.



So perhaps Ubisoft is going to capitalize on that in the still-codenamed Assassin’s Creed Comet because they’re going to let you play as the Templars.



That’s right, the eternal foes of the Assassins you’ve known and loved since the very first game will be playable. That’s because the star character, a lass named Shay, is a Templar lovin’, Assassin hatin’ 1758 killing machine in the land we now know as ‘Murica.



What else is interesting about the game, besides the whole “I can be the bad guy” thing is that, according to Kotaku, you’ll be able to go to New York and do a lot of sailing. In fact, the game has been described in some places already as a cross between the Freedom Cry DLC for Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed III, complete with Adewale and Haytham Kenway cameos (maybe).



Technically, this won’t be the first time we control a Templar, now that I’ve mentioned Haytham. But, it will be the first time we’ve gotten more of a taste of the dark side from the Assassin’s Creed series.



This does beg the question though: Is Ubisoft not only milking the series, but also running out of ideas? I mean, they are going back to a setting very similar to the sometimes groan-worthy ACIII and they’re giving us the “twist” of playing as a Templar.



Perhaps nothing disappoints me more in this news than the fact that apparently an Assassin’s Creed: Feudal Japan is still a long ways away in a year far, far away.

Titanfall is out, but some users are reporting problems (which, sadly, is a common thing when launching a new game, especially when multiplayer is involved). The developers say they’re on top of the situtation.

Geek Cave Podcast #41: Christopher Jones

In this edition of the Geek Cave Podcast, we sit down with artist Christopher Jones (Young Justice, Batman ‘66, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) and talk about his pitch to DC comics to revive the canceled Young Justice animated series (about 32 minutes into the show, for those looking for just that part).

Chris is also in the middle of a new, exciting project that you’ll hear about in this episode but can also learn more about here.

Also, in Chad’s latest Random Movie Review, we find out he’s not really a fan of the 2nd X-Men movie.

Respawn Entertainment has confirmed to multiple sources that Titanfall will run below 1080p - most likely at 720p, though Respawn is shooting for 900p - on the Xbox One. At this point they really should have called it the “Xbox 720.”

Where I Fall on Titanfall

I play a lot of games. More than I probably should, actually, considering all of my daily responsibilities, but that’s neither here nor there. I can honestly say I haven’t played a game quite like Titanfall.
