Mass Effect – What’s Next? Who Knows!

The past several months have been all about Mass Effect for me. Earlier in the year, I took a second trip through Mass Effect: Andromeda, and had a good time doing so. I then dove back headlong into the world of Commander Shepard and her merry band of galaxy-saving misfits via the games Legendary Edition…

Ratchet & Clank: Life of Pie Animated Short

Just a few days ago, completely without warning, a 23-minute Ratchet & Clank short aired on Crave, a streaming service in Canada.  Created by the same company who made the 2016 movie, Mainframe Studios, it follows Ratchet and Clank as they stop Dr. Nefarious’ newest scheme, which involves a gun called a Portalizer that can…

Could TV Ads Be Coming to Console Games?

I won’t lie.  I can be a rather negative person.  Nevertheless, I have had a certain bad premonition for years about the future of gaming that might be coming true.  In a troubling turn of events, I have learned that TV ads could possibly begin showing up in our console video games!  Yes, including those…

“Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights” May Foreshadow Dragon Age 4’s Setting

Talk about a paper-bound tease! A newly-announced collection of Dragon Age short stories subtitled “Tevinter Nights” is setting DA fan’s radars ablaze (mine included) with the hopes that it might provide a big clue as to where things may be headed the next Dragon Age game. That “where” is the mysterious Tevinter Imperium.

The PS5 and Gaming without Boundaries (Maybe)

Earlier this week, Sony revealed a bit of footage showing the new Spider-Man game running buttery smooth on its next-gen console (deemed the PS5, for now) versus the same game’s performance, with load screens, on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Further, at its recent investor relations conference (IR Day 2019), Sony revealed more details about its…

Nintendo Labo VR and Possible Switch Mini

Two sets of news concerning Nintendo’s current (and possibly future) plans for the Switch have cropped up recently, the release of a Nintendo Labo VR and the possible rumor of a Switch Mini (I must emphasize that the latter has not been confirmed by Nintendo).  And I can’t help but speculate that, if rumors of…

Thoughts on Red Dead Redemption II’s third trailer

A couple days ago, Rockstar released its third trailer for Red Dead Redemption II. I’m firmly planted in the RDRII camp, so of course I had to tune in (multiple times), along with millions of others. If you’ve not yet seen it for yourself, I’m happy to oblige.

I Ain’t Afraid of No AR Ghosts!

This past weekend, Sony announced their brand new venture into the world of augmented reality (AR) games: Ghostbusters World. As far as comparisons go, think of a mobile game like Pokémon Go! but with proton packs and ghosts rather than pokeballs and Pokémon.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Now Releasing this October

In “old” news that’s not really that old, word around town is that Red Dead Redemption 2, though delayed, now has an actual released date: October 26, 2018. The game been slated to potentially come out late last year, but then it was delayed to this Spring. Now, those who chose to take up the…

Fable 4 is Happening…Maybe?

Last week the rumor mill churned out a new one: Microsoft, owner of the (overly)touted but beloved (by me, sometimes) franchise Fable, may have tapped Playground Games for a new entry into the RPG series. The UK-based game studio is responsible for the highly successfully Forza Horizon series of racing games. It seems that Playground…
