Is The Spyro: Reginited Trilogy Nostalgic Enough?

Remasters and remakes, as popular as they are, are odd products. For those unfamiliar with the original game, the remake/remaster might as well be just another release.. For those who were fans of the original though, it’s something else entirely. It’s a trip down memory lane that is, at the same time, also a new…

Are We All Ready for Uncharted: The Movie?

Earlier this week, writer and director Allen Ungar released a short, live action (and non-monetized) film based on highly popular Uncharted video game series. Naturally, the film is  titled “Uncharted.” Fans of the games will immediately recognize our hero Drake (Nathan Fillion), his mentor/look-out Sully (Stephen Lang), and, if briefly, Drake’s plus-one, Elena (Mircea Monroe)….

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.

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…

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…

So…Why is 4K Gaming Such a Big Deal?

The Xbox One X launch has finally arrived, and it seems that the console is a massive success. I wasn’t necessarily expecting it to fail, but I find myself struggling to understand the demand for a console whose major selling point is that it can display games at 4K resolutions. The same goes for the…

Super Mario Odyssey’s Open Kingdoms

I’m not what most people would call a fan of “open-world” style games. They were fun back when Assassin’s Creed was still following the adventures of Ezio Auditore, and they were okay when the Inquisitor closed the Breach in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Nowadays though, I’m finding the whole open-world thing more tiring than anything else….
