E3 2019 Had Some Great-Looking Games

Many seem to be rather disappointed by E3 2019 for some reason. Sure, we didn’t get any earth-shattering reveals or peeks at the new console generation, but there was still plenty there to get excited about. I watched everything live this week, and I saw quite a few games that had me raising an interested…

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Finally Has a Release Date!

One of the games I absolutely was dying to see at this year’s E3 was the new Animal Crossing game for Nintendo Switch. Nintendo has been teasing it for at least two years now, and I was going to be incredibly bummed if I didn’t get either gameplay or a release date this time around….

What I Want To See at E3 2019

E3 2019 is finally upon us! The announcements will have already started rolling in once this post goes up, but I still wanted the chance to talk about the things I hope to see at the show this year. I’m not everything on the list will get attention, but you never know. E3 may be…

Shenmue III Delayed to November

It looks like Shenmue fans are going to have to wait a little while longer before they can get their hands on the series’ highly-anticipated third entry. Indeed, the game has been delayed once more, but not by all that much this time. Eager fans and backers are only going to have to wait until…

Observation is Worthy of Attention

More and more often these days, I find myself wondering exactly what is that keeps me playing games year after year. Obviously I enjoy them; I enjoy them enough to spend a fair amount of time writing about them even. Liking them isn’t the issue, it’s the why of it all that weighs on me….

New Pokemon Stuff on the Horizon

Nintendo and the Pokemon Company held a “Pokemon Press Conference” to tell fans about many new developments coming to the franchise. The first of these was a follow-up to “Detective Pikachu” coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime in the next year or so. They didn’t really elaborate beyond that, but at least fan know it…

For Some Reason, Super Mario Maker 2 is Really Exciting

Despite having been a gamer for about 24 years now (holy cow!), I still can’t say for certain which games will pique my interest and which won’t. I know what genres gravitate towards, features I tend to value, roles I like to play and content I like to avoid. That should be enough to know…

Outer Wilds is Coming May 30, Looks Awesome!

Anna Purna Interactive and Mobuis have finally announced a release date for their space exploration game titled Outer Wilds. I haven’t been following it all that closely, but it looks quite impressive based on what I’ve seen so far. In fact, I’d even go so far as to say it looks fantastic. Just take a…

Rage 2 Isn’t Everything I Hoped It Would Be, And That’s Okay

Earlier this week, I wasted no time in picking up a game I’d been waiting for since I heard about it during E3 last year. All the pre-release media looked good and all the preview coverage I’d read sounded very promising. I was certain that Rage 2 was going to be an excellent game, and…

OddWorld: Soulstorm is Still on the Horizon

There was a time when it looked like the Oddworld series was going to be left behind by gaming. It was never a blockbuster series, and its last entry was an original Xbox exclusive. Series that are dormant for an entire console generation rarely make a comeback, yet this one did. A remake of Abe’s…
