Close to the Sun Looks a Lot Like BioShock, and I’m Psyched

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything even remotely close to a new BioShock. It’s not too surprising of course; Kevin Levine did close his studio (Irrational Games) after completing work on BioShock Infinite, but it’s still kind of odd since 2K still owns the rights to the series. Whatever the case, we’re in…

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….

Digesting Death Stranding

After three years of mild secrecy and teases, Kojima Productions has finally unleashed upon the world a massive (eight plus minutes) trailer for Death Stranding, the studio‚Äôs highly anticipated release that was first announced at E3 in 2016. And not only did we see long snippets of story and gameplay in it, but we also…

‘Persona 5 R’ Revealed to Be ‘Persona 5: The Royal’

Back in December, Atlus released a brief trailer teasing the existence of a brand new project involving Persona 5. No real information was given of course, but fans at least got the project’s code name, “Persona 5 R” to chew on until the next bit of info dropped sometime in March. Well, that time finally…

Are You Ready for Devil May Cry 5?!

There’s something about games like Devil May Cry,, Persona 5 and DOOM that just plain makes them exciting, even if they still aren’t necessarily appealing. This has always been true, but I think the state of modern gaming makes it even more acute. There are so many joyless, dull-as-dishwater-looking games coming out these days that…

Fire Emblem: Three Houses Looks Great (Despite the School Setting)

Fire Emblem has seen something of a rebirth over the past several years thanks to the Awakening and Fates games. It’s not quite the hardcore strategy game it once was; perma-death is optional instead of mandatory, players cannot play themselves into a no-win situation, and more emphasis has been put on the characters and their…

Feeling Cautiously Optimistic for The Division 2

When I bought the original Tom Clancy’s The Division at launch back in 2016, I thought I was going to get something to fill the Destiny-shaped hole in my gamer’s heart. I got that, but only for a couple of hours. It really didn’t take long to discover that The Division was a very hollow…

Sunday Video Round Up: Nov 25 – Dec 1

I personally can’t believe it, but we’re now into December. Where has the year gone? Seeing as this is the last month of 2018, there’s only a handful of Video Round Ups left before we go on our annual holiday hiatus. More on that soon, but for now, let’s have a look at this week’s…
