Tetris has been around since 1984 and was the most popular game on Nintendo's Game Boy platform which was released in 1989. Since then, it has appeared on many other platforms and is considered one of the greatest video games of all time. In 2006, Nintendo released the now hard to come by Tetris DS which allowed up to ten players to compete locally or online. Since the DS online functionality has been disabled, that game has lost a majority of its charm. Ubisoft has taken the baton and ha...

"Since the PS4’s release subscribers have been ‘subjected’ to a wide variety of high quality indie games on a monthly basis through PlayStation Plus. Despite their diversity and high quality the fact remains there is still an audience that sees no value in such games. Players did not sign up to an indie game subscription service, and Sony need to recognise that sooner rather than later."

Right now you can pick up 3 free EA games on the Playstation Store. Hurry though as you’ll only have them until tonight at midnight (PST) December 7.

The 3 free games across 3 of Playstation’s platforms are a present from Electronic Arts to celebrate Playstation’s 20th birthday (can you believe it’s been twenty years already?!). Click the link below for full details.

Join John and Nathanael this week where they talk Assassins Creed, Dragon Age, Tales from Borderlands, Playstation turns 20, Black Friday winner, free DLC and more!

There was a retro flavour to the best racing games released last month, including top down classic action and weapon mounted vehicles. I have chosen five games that were released in November and ranked them according to my opinion. click the link below for the full list.

Batman 3 begins with Sinestro, Star Sapphire, Atrocious (Red Lanterns), Saint Walker (Blue Lanterns), and Larfleeze (Orange Lanterns) being summoned into space. Not knowing why they all got beamed into space, they begin accusing and arguing with each other. Suddenly, Brainiac appears and explains why he has summoned them and recruits them to assist in capturing planets for his own gain.

SegmentNext is in solidarity with those who are in that end of the month slump, waiting for a new pay check. To those missing out on Black Friday: Here are 5 free games that could've skipped the radar recently. The struggle is real.

Denis Murphy writes- Between bouts of playing games to review them, I always still take the time to play other games. Recently I finished Lego The Lord of the Rings, the Lego adaptation of The Lord of the Rings film series. It pretty much perfectly follows the events of the films outside of all the dark content, and even reuses the dialogue from the film during its cut-scenes.

"Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk (PS3, Vita) – January 13
Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (Vita) – January 13
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected / Gat Out of Hell Expansion (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, PC) – January 20"

Denis Murphy writes- I feel a little bad for the PS Vita. It's not doing that well in sales lately, Sony seemed to be focused on mostly rehashing PSP titles for it and there are- as far as I know- no upcoming big releases scheduled. When I say “big” I mean Uncharted territory, but sadly nothing like that is on the horizon.

"With Active noise cancellation to eradicate unwanted distractions, 7.1 surround sound that promises to create “an amazing 3D 360-degree soundstage with unmatched spatial accuracy,” dual hidden microphones and a built in rechargeable battery — that aims to provide up to 15 hours of playtime, Turtle Beach looks to provide gamers with the ultimate headset."

This week gamers have seen a lot of misprints and scams at big name retailers across the country. As gamers on budgets we love to find a good deal but when people take it so far that companies are forced to change their price matching policies it hurts every consumer.

The Gamer’s Lounge Crew has put together a list of what they are hoping to pick up for Black Friday. Along the way, they are mentioning the “must buy” deals for video games on Black Friday, as well as which store has the best deal for consoles or the new AAA games.

Denis Murphy writes- During my recent review of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, I mentioned how I'm a huge fan of the classic point-and-click adventure titles. Though my main example during that review was Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars, I also really enjoyed virtually anything from LucasArts. Whether it was Sam & Max Hit the Road, The Secret of Monkey Island or Full Throttle: Hell on Wheels, everything LucasArts released back in the day was literally perfect.

On this episode of The Gamers Lounge Podcast John, Erik and Nathanael talk Assassins Creed, Blizzcon announcements, Obama, game delys, Black Friday deals and more!

"If you are looking to buy a ps4 this holiday season, Best Buy is offering a PS4 console bundled with a digital copy of The Last Of Us Remastered and a hard copy of GTA V. That’s a $510 value for just $399. If Xbox one is your gaming console of choice then sail on in and pick up the Assassin’s Creed Xbox One bundle."

Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and the largest video game publishers have teamed up to bring “The Game Awards”. The very first event will debut on December 5, 2014, live from the Axis Theater in Las Vegas.

November should be know as broke-vember since there are so many great games coming out. Gamers are going to have to choose where and what they spend their money on this month. The Gamer’s Lounge has looked at the pre-order bonuses for several AAA games coming out this month and its going to come down to gamers’ preferences for DLC and choice of retailer.

Walmart is taking the plunge and getting into the use games market. This has been all over the internet for the last week or so. To make sure gamers know they have been offering some decent trade in bonuses and have an online TIV checker. This brings the speculative questions up, should gamers be trading to Walmart? What will this mean for Gamestop and other outfits? Are there better options out there?
