Cheeky Charlatans: Calypso

Even though I never played much Twisted Metal, the series’ main villain is nonetheless the epitome of cheekiness to me. Calypso has the power to literally anything, and he uses that power to put on crazy vehicular death death tournaments starring only the worst of the worst. These guys are all competing to have Calypso…

GRIT Takes Battle Royale Out West

The battle royale craze may be over, but the games are still rolling into town nonetheless. The next title to throw its hat into the fray will be GRIT: a wild west-themed take on the genre. While the idea of an all-out cowboy brawl sounds pretty fun on paper, I wonder if it’s really enough…

Cheeky Charlatans: Crazy Redd

When first started discussing gaming’s greatest mischief makers, Redd the Fox was one of the first characters to pop into my mind. It’s not so much that he’s done anything terribly bad (that we know of), but rather his obvious shifty attitude. This is a dude who runs his business out of back alleys, tents…

Sony Closing PlayStation Store for PS3, PSP and PS Vita on July 2nd

Well, it’s finally happening. PlayStation Store services are finally being brought to an end for PSP, PS Vita and PlayStation 3. It was only a matter of time, and indeed this is something practically every knew was coming eventually, but it’s still kind of amazing. Once this hits, there are going to be a lot…

Discovery Isn’t What it Used to Be

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been really digging-into The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I’ve had good time with it, and I’ve had some not so good time with it. I’ve got plenty to say about the former, but all I’ll say about the latter is that I now fully understand why everyone who’s…

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 Features Look Pretty Awesome

A little while ago, Square Enix announced a new, enhanced version of Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming to the PS5. This new version, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergade (ugh…) would feature a suite of visual enhancements, new features and a new side story featuring Yuffie. Well, today fans can see it all in…

Getting Familiar With Japan’s Arcade Music Games

Ever since I moved here last year, I’ve made a point of getting out and doing things rather than just holing up in my room. It was rather intimidating at first since everything is so different, but iit got easier as time went on. One of the things I really wanted to do was try…

Chasing Static Has Real Retro-Chic Going for it!

Making games in a retro style is most definitely nothing new. I mean, just how many 16-bit-ish games are released every year? How many of those have we seen since 2010? A ton. We’ve seen a ton! One would think that we’d be seeing a lot of games mimicking the 64-bit style too, but no….

Getting Creative in Morrowind

Well, last week I said I wanted to get back to The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and this week I can say that I’ve been following through on it! I’m not playing pure Morrowind; I’ve applied many mods to fix bugs and improve the visuals. I’ve also added things to make combat and character growth…

Tomb Raider is Getting a Definitive Collection

For anyone who, for whatever reason, hasn’t touched any of the more recent Tomb Raider games, there’s a new Tomb Raider collection coming soon. Titled the “Tomb Raider Definitive Survivor Trilogy,” this collection will include all the enhanced versions of the last three Tomb Raider games. This information is coming via a leak, so there’s…
