A Whopper of A Collection!
Developed by M2, published by ININ, and localized by ININ, Darius Cozmic Collection Console is a collection of console versions of several of the flagship shoot 'em up's from the famous TAITO series Darius. Does the game hold up as a true masterpiece like the Arcade Collection of Darius that we recently reviewed? No, but it's still a good collection nonetheless and here's why:
This collection features several versions of a few different Darius console titles which have all of the great shmup action you'd expect from the series, only a bit shorter and more simplified than the arcade counterparts. You still must fight hordes of ships modelled after marine life, avoid hazards, collect power-up's for your ship, etc. As per usual the console titles in the series feature branching level progression with dozens of level possibilities, although the courses are a bit shorter and there are fewer of them when compared to the arcade versions. There are a couple of games that are console exclusive that make this collection worthwhile, but the lack of options compared to the arcade collection and the missing UI elements do make this collection the less exciting of the two, which is a shame because it could have been so much better.
The difficulty is ironically harder than the arcade collection due to the lack of being able to add infinite continues in the games, despite the games themselves actually being easier. The controls are quite easy to learn, but hard to master with a bit of a frame delay. It's nothing substantial or even bad, but it takes a bit of getting used to. Overall the gameplay and controls are solid in this collection!
The visuals in this collection won't wow anyone, but are quite good with great backgrounds, detailed character and enemy models, and great special effects for games of their time! The soundtrack is absolutely incredible and will have you humming for hours afterwards. The music not only fits the games well, but is extremely memorable! Overall the audio-visual presentation of this collection is great!
Bottom-Line: With solid gameplay and controls, and good graphics Darius Cozmic Collection Console will draw fans of the genre in and the amazing and memorable soundtrack will keep them hooked and coming back for more! We give Darius Cozmic Collection Console for the PS4 a good to great level of recommendation to all arcade aficionados and fans of shmups in general!
Score: ★★★★★★★★½☆ 8.5/10

Hardware or Software, That Is The Question...
It has come to our attention that many members of the press have been experiencing serious desyncing issues with the Joycon controllers on their pre-launch Switch consoles that have us scratching our heads about how such a serious bug could be present so close to the console's official launch which is less than a week away, regardless it needs to be fixed as soon as possible.
According to sources the issue is being caused by the weak wi-fi connectivity of the Joycon controller attachments being hampered by the water of the players' own bodies. Hopefully the issue can be resolved through a system update, otherwise we might be looking at a potential recall of Switch consoles available at launch.
What do you think of this news regarding the issues with early Switch consoles? As always be sure to let us know your thoughts in our comment section below!

Ready Your 4K Television!
Hey there PlayStation gamers, Bre here with another PS update. So before you may remember me saying that the timing for when the PS4K or PSNeo would be released was still unclear. Well we now have new news that the PS4K could be dropped and most likely will be dropped this year. Exciting no? We got this information from Game Stop’s own CEO Paul Raines. While he did not come out and say himself that the PS4K was coming out in 2016, he did say that there were two new console form factors coming out this year.
We know that one is from Microsoft called the Xbox One S, but the only other one we’ve heard anything about lately is PS4K which leads us to believe this is definitely the one he’s hinting at. He usually drops us hints whenever he appears on television, and this time he dropped a hint about Sony themselves. While this has neither been denied, or confirmed by Sony we do suspect that it may be true. How long will Sony make us wait before confirming what we know? Guess we just got wait and find out gamers, until then here’s hoping that we see what Sony can do in the PS4K and soon!

Your 4K TV's Are Ready!
Hello my fellow PlayStation gamers, Bre here with some awesome new PlayStation news. The PS4K has been said to be coming to us soon via Sony, but what we have just been told is that soon developers will be able to submit their games to be onto the PS4K. In fact, we know from some leaked data that developers may be able to submit their games for the PS4K as soon as next month.
This came from the news that Sony gave us soon after the PS4 release that they were excited, and planned to release the PS4K soon after. The one thing we have not heard anything about though is the PlayStation VR which makes us wonder rather or not it will be a part of the new PS4K or not. Some fun facts I have managed to find about the PS4K is:
-It will be referred to as PS Neo or PS4.5
-It will cost around $399
-Sony is excited about the release, and withheld it from E3.
-There will be no PS4K exclusive games as far as we’ve found games will work both on the PS4 and the PS4K.
As for now, guess we’ll wait and see what the future holds for this system.
