The PlayStation Now subscription service launched last week on the PlayStation 4, with a free one week subscription available to everyone. This review is based on my experience with the service after I participated in the trial and i have paid for a subscription.

The long awaited service launched with 107 titles available to stream instantly, including titles such as ‘The Last of Us’ ‘God of War: Ascension’ ‘Bioshock Infinite’ ‘The Walking Dead Season 1’ and many others, with many more to come. The current goal is to get all, or as many as possible, PlayStation 3 games on the service, and then look at the older generation of games. The Service is $19.99 a month or $44.99 for 3 months (roughly $15 a month) and this subscription allows you to stream any game available on the service indefinitely, as long as you are a subscriber.

While playing, I encountered few issues with the service, being kicked completely out of a game twice, but the issues do exist. The primary issue encountered is lagging in the stream, which can make it hard to play the games at points.psnow-logo-centered-threecolum-us-05jun14 I highly recommend paying hardwired into your router instead of WiFi and this should fix a good number of issues. If you are worried your internet isn’t good enough to stream you can test the connection through the store before you download the service.

For me, this service is highly worth it, for the shear number of current and promised games. Games that i personally never got to finish or even play. So I recommend everyone try the trial at the least and see if this is a good fit for them.

TnT ’14: A world built for gamers of all kinds!

If you love gaming, and I am using that term loosely, then Tokyo in Tulsa this year was the place to be. I have been to many conventions and The game set up here blew my mind. It was truly a paradise for anyone who loves to play.

They provided every kind of set up that you could hope for. In the video game room there was everything from PC the original NES. I DSC_2836spent so much time playing games from my childhood and even
getting to share those games with my kids. Watching young kids play games like Sonic 2 and Battle Toads was awesome. The look on their face was different. It took them to a time they weren’t used to and they loved it.

 

I got to see some awesome tournaments and action. Smash Brothers to League of Legends, there were cheers and laughs all around. They were even streaming EVO on the big screen to make sure that we didn’t miss it!

If that wasn’t enough to make you giddy then the downstairs sure was. They held Magic almost all the time and there were people there all the time to teach yoDSC_2882u War Hammer as well, but my personal favorite was the sound of dice hitting the table as people of all ages were rolling up characters for different RPG games!

All this just to say that it was an awesome time and great to see them make gaming such a large part of it. They really went all out with making sure we were happy. Tell us your favorite part of all the gaming at TnT.

Tokyo in Tulsa day 2: Cosplay, games, and more cosplay!

Well guys, as expected, day two was even more fun than the first! We had a blast walking through the Cox Convention Center and seeing all the amazing outfits that were there. We had everything frDSC_2853om Attack on Titan (below) to Game of Thrones(right). It was a blast just talking with and getting to know all the awesome people. Sadly there was no where near the time to meet everyone though. Enjoy the small gallery we have added below.

While we are on the topic of cosplay! 

We got the lovely chance to go in and see the cosplay contest. I have to say that it was very well done and just fun to watch! There were a ton of entries but as always to us, there is no winner. They were all pure awesome an DSC_2888DSC_2892 DSC_2885
d deserve all the praise in the world for getting up there and preforming like that! Here a few snapshots of the contest (right)

The room was packed our and as i said before, i can see why! The costumes and outfits were amazing! There were so many people wanting to see it that they had an over flow room set up and showing a live feed of the contest (bottom left) To me that was awesome and more proof that Tulsa really knows how to do cosplay right and support it at the same time!

 

But now on to the gaming!

There were countless set ups and different platforms to choose from. We had everything from Titan Fall, League of Legends, to smash brothers tournaments running all day long. That is not even mentions the awesome retro gaming stations that were scattered around! Here are a few of our favorite shots from the game room this year guys!DSC_2837DSC_2842

To kick off all the great stuff from the weekend they started with the opening ceremonies. At the same time the Game room was already in full swing with SmashDSC_2760 brothers Melee tourneys going on, but that is not the only games going on. They have too many systems to count and everything from PC to Wii U. DSC_2766

I love going into the game rooms at the cons and just seeing people that are usually alone or feel left  out having a place to all come together and having a blast with others who DSC_2772are in love with the same things . Its always a great feeling!
