Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
Holy smokes. I’ll be the first to admit there hasn’t exactly been a overwhelming amount of great content for PlayStation plus, but there have been a few hits here and there. Namely, Stacking (also DoubleFine), Sam and Max season 3, and Resident Evil PS1 classics (maybe still available).
But right now is not the time to hesitate. For the 3 or 4 of you out there that have PlayStationPlus… go download Costume Quest ! Just in time for Halloween. Costume Quest is an excellent DoubleFine game with all of the humor, writing, and generally excellent game design you’ve come to love… Come to think of it, some of you might still be in Sony’s “we’re sorry about mishandling your personal data” period and might have PlayStation Plus access anyhow. Either way it’s an excellent game we’ve featured previously on the site.
It’s a light-hearted RPG style game where kids turn into super-awesome versions of their Halloween costumes to fight bad guys. That’s all you need to know.
