There’s Something About Star Fox 64

The Nintendo 64 is a system of classics, there’s no really no debating that. It had fewer games than it’s biggest competitor, was less technically sophisticated and had a controller most gamers seem to hate (for some reason beyond my understanding), yet even some of its most minor games are celebrated as classics even today….

Just Cause 4 Leans it’s Inherent Silliness With Destruction DLC

Ever since Just Cause 2, the series has been more about seeing how many ridiculous things one can pull off with Rico Rodriguez’s insane arsenal than anything else. There’s always a story involving liberating this state or that country from a cartoonish dicator, but they always take a backseat to goofy grapple tricks and chain…

Catching the Bus to the Borderlands

When Borderlands first released back in 2009, I was still too wrapped up in Halo 3, Uncharted 2 and Assassins Creed 2 to care much about Gearbox’s goofy looter-shooter. I looked at it as a novelty rather than the prototype for the modern live service game it turned out to be. So, I missed it….

PSN Users Can Finally Change Names

Well, they did it; they finally did it.  After years and years of PlayStation users requesting the ability to change their online ID, Sony has finally figured out how to make it possible on PSN. Why it took them almost two console generations and 13 years to implement is still anybody’s guess, but the feature…

Halo: Reach is Finally Coming Back!

So, it’s finally happening. After years of answers like “we’re definitely interested” and “maybe” whenever they were asked, 343 Industries has finally announced that Halo: Reach will be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection later this year. It’s a announcement many of us (myself included) thought would never come given that the Halo compilation…

Yooka-Laylee’s 64-Bit Tonic is Finally Ready!

Despite a mostly lukewarm reception upon its release in 2016, Playtonic games has been faithfully supporting their debut title, Yooka-Laylee, for the past three years. This dedicated support has mostly taken the form of ports to additional platforms, bug fixes, quality-of-life updates, and such. All of these are very important, and they definitely show that…

Marble It Up: Marble Blast Ultra Finally Has a Successor!

Back in the early days of the Xbox 360, there were only a handful of games available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Some of them weren’t so great, but many like Geometry Wars and UNO have cemented their places as classics of the time. For me though, the one that stands above them…

‘Persona 5 R’ Revealed to Be ‘Persona 5: The Royal’

Back in December, Atlus released a brief trailer teasing the existence of a brand new project involving Persona 5. No real information was given of course, but fans at least got the project’s code name, “Persona 5 R” to chew on until the next bit of info dropped sometime in March. Well, that time finally…

System Shock 3 Gets New Trailer at GDC 2019

I’ll be honest, I forgot this game was even coming. The System Shock series of games has become the stuff of gaming legend over the years, so the idea that another one is in the works is still taking some time to sink in. Regardless, System Shock 3 is coming, and we have a new…
