Fable III Co-Op: Better Late Than Never?

With a some extra time on our hands over the recent holiday weekend, my household dug a little further into some multiplayer options through Game Pass. We steered clear of MMOs and looked for local multiplayer and co-op options. In doing so, a huge surprise rose to the top: Fable III. “Wait, WHAT?” was my…

Ubisoft Reveals Next Assassins Creed, Still No Ninjas

Late last week, Ubisoft revealed the next Assassin’s Creed game: Assassin’s Creed Mirage. this time players will be doing their thing as Basim Ibn Ishaq, a side character from Assassin’s Creed Valhalla otherwise known as “Loki”. The game will apparently be focusing on his early life and will seemingly take place in a more Middle…

Losing Momentum

I don’t know about you all, but for me finishing a game is all about getting into a groove and staying in it. Sometimes maintaining that groove is easy since the game is so good; sometimes it’s a struggle all the way through, but you’re gonna finish because you spent that $30 to $60, dang…

That Game You Want Got Bad Reviews, Now What?

For the better part of the year, I had been looking forward to playing the new Saints Row reboot. As such, up until the start of August, I had a pre-order of it for the PS5 sitting in one of my queues. Its release just happened to coincide with the completion of a major work…

Halo Inifinite Technically Already Has Splitscreen Co-op…For Now

Recently, 343i announced that they are cancelling the long-awaited splitscreen co-op mode, despite initial promises and fan disappointment. However, it is technically in the game right now, and accessible thanks to a certain glitch. Will it be available for much longer, probably not considering that the developer doesn’t want it in the game, so check…

Raji: An Ancient Epic: Demo Review

Raji: An Ancient Epic is one of those intriguing looking games I had my eye on for a while.  Set in ancient India and based on Hindu mythology, the game follows Raji’s adventure to rescue her little brother Golu, who was kidnapped by demons.  The unique setting and theme of the game really helps it…

How Long Until We Forget Cyberpunk 2077?

Gamescom was back in full force last week, with just about every participating company giving us plenty to get excited about. Personally, I was pretty wowed by Atomic Heart’s combat trailer. The combination of cool powers, exotic weapons, speed and brutal depiction thereof had my jaw-dropped for the duration! I was feeling psyched, truly psyched…

Ranking my Free-to-Play Free-for-All

When I decided to see what free-to-play console games might work in my household for future fun times, I didn’t intend for the venture to become “a thing.” Now, with six new games proverbially under my belt, it seems like deciding which ones were the “winners,” is only the right and fair thing to do….

Please, Please Be Good, Atomic Heart!

Okay, so this one is a little late as far as news goes, but I really wanted to talk about it. Late last week, Mundfish finally released a new trailer for Atomic Heart. It was a nice, 3-minute chunk of combat gameplay which, I must say, makes the game look absolutely fantastic! It’s so fast,…

WarioWare: Get It Together! Demo Review

In case you’re not familiar, the WarioWare series consists of a bunch of quirky “microgames” that must be completed within several seconds.  Though I had watched people play a handful of these games on YouTube in the past, it wasn’t until I downloaded the demo for WarioWare: Get It Together! on the Switch that I…

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is Enjoyably Confusing

It’s funny how easily we can wind up playing games we’d otherwise pass by. I’d heard of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim a few times over the past couple of years, but I never really had any plans to check it out. Anime games usually aren’t my thing for one, and I’ve also already seen the…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #263

Up this week: Arietta of Spirits (demo) – join us as we try out this charming and emotional narrative adventure game. Pokken Tournament DX (demo) – Pokémon + fighting game = fun? Not sure, but we give it a go in this demo. WarioWare: Get it Together! (demo) – what the heck does Wario have…

Deathloop First Impressions

Fact is, I should have played Deathloop when I first picked up the game last year. It was right around the Christmas holiday, when I had a nice chunk of time off. And had I known, or rather, paid attention to what the game offered, I might have more strongly opted to play it then….

The Chant gets a Release Date

The Chant, a new horror game from developer Brass Token, got a release date just a few days ago. It’ll be ready to spook and scare as of November 4th. I gotta say, for a game from a relatively unknown indie developer, this is actually looking pretty interesting?

The Almost Gone: Demo Review

In recent years, I’ve grown rather fond of casual puzzle games that don’t require quick thinking and reflexes.  One such game for which I decided to try the demo was The Almost Gone, during which you explore the house of a broken family, each room serving as a diorama that hides items and clues to…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #262

Up this week: The Almost Gone – we try out this unusual puzzle game in which things feel just a bit…off. Miitopia – it’s the return of our adventures in Miitopia! What oddball scenarios will we come across this time around? Bastion – we play as “the Kid” in a world gone awry in this…

To (Not Quite) Infinity and Beyond in Star Trek Online

When I started out with my summertime free-to-play MMORPG free-for-all, there were five games on my list: DC Universe Online, TERA, Skyforge, Phantasy Star Online 2 NG, and not Final Fantasy XIV, but rather Star Trek Online. After the FFXIV diversion, there was only one thing left to do, and that was to give Star…

When the Past Was Around: A Tale of Love and Loss

A while back, I reviewed the demo for a casual puzzle game called When the Past Was Around, which tells the story of Eda and a man known simply as the Owl.  The story is told without any words and reveals the tragic twist right from the start, though it is the way in which…

Stray – A Spoiler-Free Review

In 2020, my cat passed away after what we hope was an enjoyable nineteen years with us. We all know 2020 was a bad year; this made it personally one of the worst in recent memory. I thought I had come to terms with his loss over the past two years, but about five minutes…

Animal Crossing Monopoly: Cute, But Complicated

A few months ago, Mother Duck and I accumulated a small collection of classic board games, along with one variation on a classic, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons edition of Monopoly.  (They aren’t exactly a proper replacement for games of the electronic variety, but we imagine they’ll come in quite handy during power outages, at…

Fallout 76: Year Three in Review

In typing up this review of my third year in Fallout 76, one question stalks my mind: is it my last? I know that I won’t be renewing my Fallout 1st sub after it expires next month. I also know that I don’t plan on dedicating a significant portion of my future gaming time to…

Resonance: The Wastes Where Life Began

Our newest Resonance post covers a song from the recently released Kirby and the Forgotten Land, my new personal favorite game in the Kirby series.  One of the game’s many positives is its awesome soundtrack and subtle world-building, with prime examples of both being found in the desert known as the Wastes Where Life Began…

Digital Card Games Actually Make Some Sense

Among those that don’t enjoy digital card games, I’ve noticed that some share a certain sentiment. Basically, they question what the point of a digital card game is. The basic argument is that card games only use cards and static images because it’s the only way for the ideas they represent to expressed. That is,…

Fall Guy’s Special Sonic Stage ‘Bean Hill’ Revealed!

Fall Guys fans have already known for a while that the game will be hosting a special Sonic collaboration next month in honor of Sonic’s 30th birthday. Up to now, the assumption was that this collab would just be the return of the Sonic and Knuckles costumes as well a couple of new ones like…

Safety Truly is an Illusion in Minecraft

I’ve been playing Minecraft off and on for a very long time now, and I thought that I had it all figured out by now. As far as I knew, any and all challenge in the vanilla survival mode was contained to the opening couple of day/night cycles and specific places like unexplored caves, the…

Digital Extremes Announces ‘Soulframe’

After spending the last several years being known for and working exclusively on one single game, Warframe, Digital Extremes has finally announced a new IP. The new game, Soulframe, looks as though it’s inspired by its predecessor, but the setting appears to be completely different. Rather than science-fantasy, this one seems to be going for…

Final Fantasy VII REBIRTH – A New World of Possibilities

When I sat down to think about what I’d talk about this week, I realized that there was so much more to think about with the next Final Fantasy Remake game. The implications of deviating from the old story are huge, so why not take a few more minutes to consider some of the craziest…

There Was Going to Be a Halo VR…But No More

It’s come to light recently that there was, at one point going to be a Halo VR game, but it was cancelled rather early in development. There’s nothing so elaborate as a trailer, but some concept art has made it out into the open, and it’s actually MP1st that had this story.

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer: Demo Review

Cadence of Hyrule is a rhythm-adventure game that takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda! Apparently, some guy named Octavo put the King of Hyrule to sleep with his magic, and it’s up to Link (and several other playable characters) to defeat Octavo and his four champions.  Although I’m typically not a…
