Classic Spyro Is Coming Back!

After the massive success that was last year’s Crash Bandicoot N’ Sane Trilogy, it was likely only a matter of time before the jeans-wearing marsupial’s main rival got the remaster treatment. As reported by Kotaku, Activision has a remake collection in the works for the original trilogy of Spyro games. Developed by Vicarious Visions, the…

Whatever Happened to Doing Things for Ourselves?

It feels as though games are playing themselves more and more these days. It’s not that they’re literally taking control away from the player or anything. No, it’s more that it feels like modern games, at least those in the AAA space, have been trusting players with less and less as the industry has advanced….

Victory Isn’t Guaranteed in Ash of Gods

Many games have come and gone that have made the “your choices matter” promise. Some outright fail to deliver, like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Some only result in binary endings, like BioShock or DisHonored. Still others deliver differing end states with only 1 or 2 major differences between them, like Mass Effect. A new RPG…

Getting It Right The First Time

How does one improve on a near-perfect game? Is it really possible, or is another game that’s equally as good the best that any developer or fan could hope for? While there is no such thing as the perfect game, there are many games out there that would be quite difficult to meaningfully improve upon….

Four New Characters Announced for Soul Calibur VI

More and more details are trickling out about the newest entry in the Soul Calibur series now that the official announcement has been made. In the most recent announcement for the game, Bandai Namco revealed four more characters on the game’s initial roster and even introduced a series newcomer by the name of Grøh. He appears…

Resonance: Everything Will Be Okay

Prey (2017) is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated games to release last year. There are several factors that likely contributed to that. It didn’t see that much in the way of marketing. Its beta, while quite enticing, may have revealed too much and unintentionally encouraged unreasonable expectations. The fact that this was…

Arriving in Morrowind By Way of Skyrim

While it would be a bit of an overstatement if I said that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of my favorite games, it would be completely fair to say that I caught the Skyrim bug along with everyone else in the months preceding and succeeding 11-11-2011. Like most of those players, Skyrim served…

Overwatch Adding New “Hero 27” Soon

It seems things are progressing quite smoothly in the development of Overwatch’s soon-to-be newest additions: the currently unnamed “Hero 27.” In an interview released last Friday, Jeff Kaplan talked at length about the Overwatch team’s hero development process. He took time to discuss how internal testing worked, how they decide when a hero is ready…

de Blob 2 is Getting Re-released for PS4 and Xbox One!

It was only a matter of time. Once a game gets the remaster treatment and releases for current consoles, the release of the sequel(s) and/or a bundle becomes an inevitability in this era of constant remasters and remakes. Ahem at any rate, like its predecessor, de Blob, de Blob 2 has been remastered and will…

Making it to the End

I remember coming across a GameFAQs poll once that asked readers whether or not they finished their games. It was enough to pique my interest, so I selected the “yes” bubble and took a look at the results. Once the results page loaded up I found myself rather shocked. Most of those who answered the…

It’s a JRPG, But With Tanks and Mechs!

Fans of tanks, giant mecha and ridiculously armed tanks might just be in for a treat once Metal Max Xeno launches this year. Taking place on a post-apocalyptic earth, Metal Max Xeno places players in control of a group of young soldiers and survivors as they do their best to survive in a ruined world…

Well, here we are at the end of it all. The the old year has come to a close and the new year is poised to replace it. And with a new year comes new games to look forward to! I gotta say, I’m not really convinced that 2018 is going to be a strong…
