Nintendo’s “Nindies” Sure Look Promising (or, If I Only Had a Switch)

PAX West wrapped up earlier this week, and from it came a slew of game announcements. High among the highlights that caught my attention was Nintendo’s Summer Nindies Showcase, which featured several independent game titles that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. In a mere twenty minutes, Nintendo packed in a dazzling array of…

Gamevice is Suing Nintendo

In recent gaming news, it has come to my attention that a company called Gamevice is suing Nintendo.  Gamevice has created detachable controllers that attach to smartphones and tablets in much the same way as the Joy-Con controllers attach to the Switch.  If you’re interested in reading more, the web site I visited was CNBC….

A KH3 Release Date, Toy Story, and More

I’ve long since lost track of the number of years we’ve been waiting to hear this news.  But it’s finally confirmed…Kingdom Hearts 3 is indeed something that’s going to happen in our lifetimes!  It was announced at Disney’s D23 convention that this greatly anticipated game is scheduled for release in 2018.  When in 2018, I…

Is…is that a new Street Fighter EX game?

That’s exactly what I stammered upon seeing this the other day: It HAS to be, right? Those characters, that music…ahhh…the memories. Don’t worry, I’m not going to blather on about my history with Street Fighter or the middling relationship I have with Street Fighter EX 3 (the only SF EX game I’ve played), mainly because…

Nintendo’s Coming to Universal Studios

There are a lot of franchises out there that have gotten the theme-park treatment, though rarely, if ever, are those franchises of the video game variety.  Even so, I would often think of how well-suited Nintendo would be for its very own land in a theme park.  And what do you know, it’s actually happening! …

Red Dead Redemption 2 delayed…and that’s okay

Early last week, Rockstar Games broke the news that this year’s darling Western drama, Red Dead Redemption 2, will be next year’s darling Western drama. Yes, the game has been delayed until Spring 2018. This, in my mind, leads me to think of a possible release in March, but that’s purely a guess. About the…

A New Playground for Playground Games?

In 2012, a new envisioning of Microsoft’s popular racing game series, Forza, appeared on the scene: Forza Horizon. Forza Horizon wasn’t simply a racing game, it was an open-world driving game that invited players to explore a vast world in a variety of cars and progress through a series of tasks and challenges. Even though…

Hands On with INFRA!

Image provided by Loiste Interactive As Halloween draws near, the urge to talk about horror games just grows and grows doesn’t it? Even now I find myself tempted to start talking about just how wonderfully spooky the cramped corridors of Dead Space are! However, today we’ve got something much better to talk about! As promised,…

Something New: Tough Coded IV Live!

Image gathered from the Tough Coded IV Live press kit It would be untrue to state that seeing new things in video is a rarity. There are always new things being done. New art styles, new stories, new ways to interact with your enemies, and new battle systems with which to engage them. There’s always…

INFRA: You Have To Keep It Together!

Image supplied by Loiste Interactive (Note: Pictured work is still in production.) At PAX Prime 2013 I met a man whom I initially recognized as Booker DeWitt from BioShock. I didn’t think much of it beyond the costume being pretty cool, that is until they introduced themselves. It so happened that I had met Luke…
