Playing Forsaken While Eating My Words

I’ve not been kind to Destiny 2 or its developer, Bungie, for a good portion of this year. As I’ve said in several of my posts, I’ve been a Destiny fan for a long time, and I was particularly disappointed with Destiny 2 at launch. It was enough to get me to stop playing the…

Still Feeling Cautiously Optimistic About Anthem

“Anthem looks interesting.” That’s more or less what I’ve been thinking ever since the game was announced. Plenty has been released about it; plenty has been shown, but I’m still not feeling all that much excitement for the game. This latest trailer, like all the others, shows a game that looks very promising. And yet…

Octopath Traveler is the Right Kind of Simple

I’ve been finding myself drawn to games that don’t require all that much thought lately. I mean that’s not exclusively what I’ve been playing, quite the opposite actually. Now that I’ve finished Vampyr (finally!), I feel like I can act on this attraction (such as it is). It’s kind of strange, but as my working…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Might Just Live Up to Its Name

I usually don’t let hype get the better of me when deciding whether or not I should buy a video game. Trailers are still fun to watch, and I often talk animatedly with my friends about this announcement or that reveal. However, I still like to think myself as a rational gaming consumer most of…

Nintendo Didn’t Bring Much to E3, But Was Still Impressive

I’ll be honest, with the Switch such a good state, I was expecting quite a lot from Nintendo at this year’s E3. I was expecting Metroid news. I was hoping for Animal Crossing news. I was sure that I was finally going to see more news about that new Yoshi game they’re working on. Alas,…

Nintendo Finally Gives Details About Switch Online Service

Nintendo has finally pulled back the curtain (somewhat) on the online service they’re bringing to the console this September. For starters, this isn’t going to be the same kind of robust online service PlayStation and Xbox users have grown used to over the years. It’s actually rather bare bones compared to PSN and Xbox Live,…

Fortnite is Going Mobile

If there’s one game that’s blown up massively, it’s Epic Games’ take on the 100-player free-for-all multiplayer game type: Fortnite Battle Royale. The game is everywhere. It’s all over consoles, it’s massive on PC, and it’s recently become the king of Twitch. And soon, it’ll be available on your smart phone too.

Turning Over Mario Party 2’s Bank

No matter how you look at it, Mario Party 2 is an old game. It’s been 18 years since the game saw release on the N64, and it has seen eight direct sequels in that time. By all rights, Mario Party 2 and its N64 brethren should have been left behind by gamers a long…
