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…

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…

Say Hello to the 2019 Video Game Hall of Fame Inductees

Last week, The Strong (the National Museum of Play), located in Rochester, New York, announced its newest inductees into World Video Game Hall of Fame®. The museum created this most hallowed of halls, so to speak, in order to acknowledge “individual electronic games of all types—arcade, console, computer, handheld, and mobile—that have enjoyed popularity over…

BloodStained: Ritual of the Night Gets a Release Date!

It’s been four years now since Koji Igarashi and his team introduced the world to their vision for a proper spiritual successor to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. That’s four long years of work for the developers and of patience for eager fans. The team never went radio silent, and they were extraordinarily willing to…

A Ni no Kuni Movie?

It seems like a lot of video games have been adapted into movies lately, and fortunately, this one is not live action.  That’s right, folks, they’re apparently making a Ni no Kuni movie, which is, thankfully, keeping the animated look of the games.  The only unfortunate thing…right now, there’s no word of it being released…

Just Cause 4 Leans into 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…

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…

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…
