Nintendo’s New Switch Looks Cool, But…

So, Nintendo launched a new version of the Switch last week: the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model). It looks nice, and it has some nice changes. However, this isn’t an upgrade in the same vein as upgrades for previous Nintendo consoles. In fact, it’s so in substantial that I can’t help but wonder who exactly this…

Monster Hunter Stories 2 Has an Impressive Post-Launch Roadmap

Capcom, the publisher for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, recently revealed their extensive post-launch plans for the game. They’d already announced that players will get Palamute (from Monster Hunter Rise) as a ridable monster, but this latest announcement confirmed that much more will be coming to the game in the months following its…

Just Wait For The Sale

Summer is here and so is the annual Steam Summer Sale. Just like so many other gamers out there, I’ve already got plenty of games to play, but I couldn’t resist picking up some the items on my wish list. I mean, some were selling for $3 to $5! What better time to get them…

Celebrating #Zelda35 in July!

Thirty-five years ago, Nintendo introduced an adventure RPG called The Legend of Zelda. It was a runaway hit in Japan then; and when it arrived in the United States a year later, it became the first Nintendo game in the states to reach one millions copies sold. After the original game, The Legend of Zelda…

NEO: The World Ends With You Has a Demo Now

The newly remastered The World Ends With You is already available on PC, Switch and PlayStation 5, but there’s also now a demo for those who are on the fence about this notoriously unique JRPG. Actually, if there’s any game out there that’s better experienced via a demo first, it’s this one.

Earthlock: Demo Review

As I peruse the demos currently available on the PlayStation Store, I am bombarded with a staggering number of similar looking RPGs.  Typically a genre that consumes a whole lot of one’s time, RPGs are kind of a big commitment, and so it makes sense to check out the demo first in order to decide…

Metroid Dread: A Game 19 Years in the Making

As usual, Nintendo had a very strong showing at E3 2021. In fact, I’d argue that theirs was the best out of everyone who presented. Not only did they bring the games, they brought games that we’ll actually get to play relatively soon; no waiting for years and years to get our hands on these!…

Up this week: The Mooseman – who is the Mooseman, and what does he see? Find out with us as we play this very unusual and beautiful indie title. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition – our Crystal Caravanners needs some myrrh to save the day, and we’re going to help them get it in…

Mass Effect – What’s Next? Who Knows!

The past several months have been all about Mass Effect for me. Earlier in the year, I took a second trip through Mass Effect: Andromeda, and had a good time doing so. I then dove back headlong into the world of Commander Shepard and her merry band of galaxy-saving misfits via the games Legendary Edition…

Revisiting E3: Halo Infinite Multiplayer is Free-To-Play

As is tradition with E3 week, a lot of news came out over the course the event and there’s very little new to talk about. So for this week, let’s focus on one last week’s more interesting announcements: Halo Infinite’s now free-to-play multiplayer.

The Mooseman: Beautiful, Eerie, Yet Unsatisfying

Ever since I have begun buying digital games, I have found no shortage of interesting, artsy looking options.  Beautiful they may be, but more often than not, these games prove why you shouldn’t judge something based on looks alone.  The most recent example of this is The Mooseman, an extremely intriguing looking game that is…

Making Online Friends: Easy or Not?

After taking time to talk about Destiny last week, I found myself wondering why it was that I enjoyed the game so much in the first place. This wasn’t all that difficult a question to answer, because I’ve answered it before. While Destiny had (and sometimes has) a lot going for it as a game,…

My E3 2021 Highlight Reel

I’m still working out my thoughts about this year’s revamped E3; it came and went, was mostly fun but also predictable and underwhelming. Granted, the various crises we’ve all been weathering since early last year have taken their toll on the games industry, so it’s not terribly surprising that E3 2021 was more low key…

Ubisoft Officially Revealed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora…Yay?

Ubisoft’s showing at E3 2021 was more or less in line with their showings for the past several years. Despite being a major publisher, they’ve consistently had almost nothing exciting to talk about at the event. Heck, they almost never have anything exciting going on at all anymore. This year’s showcase had one bright spot…

Spelunky: Demo Review

Spelunky falls into a broad category of games that I have heard good things about, but have never actually played.  Thanks to the trial version that I downloaded on the PS4, I finally had a chance to experience this game for myself.  Though my initial impression was fairly neutral, I quickly grew to appreciate Spelunky…

What I Hope to See at E3 2021

With the heralded return of E3 just hours away, I figured I would throw my proverbial “wishlist” hat into the ring, because why not? Though the event won’t be as traditional as it once was (and will probably never be again), and though my own gaming inclinations of the past year have lain firmly on…

So It Looks Like the Borderlands Movie is Really Happening

When it comes to video game movies, there are basically two kinds: those that are rumored for years and never get made and those that dive into theaters out of nowhere. I’d like to say that there are good and bad video game movies too, but I’ve yet to see one I could honestly call…

Shadow of the Colossus: Ranking All Colossi

As the name suggests, Shadow of the Colossus has some of the biggest boss fights in gaming history.  In general, these sixteen colossi are, well, colossal, and today, I thought it would be fun to rank them all, from the most aggravating or otherwise disappointing to the most epic and downright awesome (the order in…

New Game Plus: Fire Emblem – Three Houses

It’s been a couple of years since I finished my initial run through Fire Emblem: Three Houses. At the time, I remember very much enjoying my tenure at Gerreg Mach Monastery and seeing the story play out. I wasn’t and still am not all that psyched about Byleth as a character, but they get the…

Top 5: Things I’m Loving in the “New” Mass Effect

Even though it felt like I had a pretty full gaming plate at the time Mass Effect Legendary Edition released, of course I had to dive in as soon as decent window of opportunity presented itself. I’m about two-thirds of the way through the “legendary” version of ME1 with my renegade engineer Lynn Shepard, and…

Switch Pro is Looking Much More Real, Is it Good Thing Though?

Rumors of a Switch Pro have been swirling around in some form for at least a year or so now, but they’ve never really proven to hold much water. That is, they didn’t until a few days ago. A listing for a Nintendo Switch Pro popped up on Amazon late last week, seemingly confirming the…

The Metroid Prime 4 Wishlist

You know, it’s kind of tough being a Metroid fan. Unlike Nintendo’s other major franchises, Metroid hardly ever gets any attention anymore. I mean, there hasn’t been a proper Metroid game at all since Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS. That was 4 years ago now. There hasn’t been a console Metroid game since Metroid:…

More Details Arise for The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

Despite the mixed reception The Dark Pictures Anthology has received thus far, Supermassive games is dutifully moving forward with the next entry: House of Ashes. Little has been revealed of the game outside of an extremely short teaser, but that’s finally changing. The developer finally put out some more info earlier this week, with a…

Cat Quest: Demo Review

G’day, folks, in recent times, I have taken to downloading free demos as a means to experience a greater variety of games without having to pay for something I may not end up liking.  (Y’know, the very reason demos exist.)  Being someone who adores animals, especially those of the feline variety, it was no wonder…

Resident Evil Village is a Decent Action/Horror Hybrid

After finally getting around to playing Resident Evil 7, I was very much looking forward to seeing what Capcom would do with Resident Evil 8. I absolutely loved the tension-filled corridors of the Baker house in the previous game, so I was initially disappointed when it was announced that Village would be more like Resident…

Looks like QuakeCon is Going to be Digital-Only Again

Another day, another convention announcing that they’ll be “online-only” again in 2021. This time the convention in question is QuakeCon, the convention for fans of classic shooters, ID and of course Quake. The announcement came a couple of weeks ago, with the organizers basically saying that they’re doing this in the interest of staff and…
