Fixing Donkey Kong 64

Of all the games Rareware put out in the mid- to late 90’s, DK64 might just be the most polarizing. The Donkey Kong collect-a-thon has both staunch defenders and zealous detractors, with both refusing to acknowledge certain aspects of the game. As for me, my perspective on the game has shifted over the years. I…

Nintendo World is Incredible!

When I first heard the rumors about a brand new, Nintendo-themed area getting built in Universal Studios Japan, I took the news with a mix of excitement and pessimism. On the one hand, it was just plain cool that Nintendo was now mainstream enough to be featured in the most major theme park aside from…

Re-Opening the Gates of Oblivion

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is one of the most beloved of Bethesda games, so much so that many fans still celebrate it to this very day. I can’t count how many YouTube videos I’ve seen which sing the game’s praises; some even go so far as to say it’s superior to Skyrim! As someone who played…

Final Fantasy VII Intergrade ‘Final’ Trailer is Fire!

Another month, another trailer for Final Fantasy VII Intergrade. Just like before, the upgraded PS5 visuals look excellent, and it does make one kind wish they could play on the new system. However, the real stars of this trailer are the newly revealed boss fights, modes and summons!

No PS5, No Problem

Like many out there, I was (and still kind of am) a bit frustrated by the lack of available PlayStation 5 systems out there. I was okay with waiting for a few months and still absolutely refuse to buy a scalped system, but I still wanted to catch up with the rest of the gaming…

Hot Wheels Unleashed’s SkyScraper Level Looks Pretty Sick!

I’m not usually one to get psyched for racing games. Something about them just isn’t terribly appealing to me I guess. There are exceptions though. In the PS2 days, I absolutely loved Burnout, and the Mario Kart series has always been a blast. There was also Hot Wheels: Velocity X on the Gamecube, and I’ve…

PlayStation 5: FOMO No Mo!

I few weeks ago, I spent some time talking about the PS5, specifically the somewhat irrational desire to buy one. As always, new consoles are exciting, so many of us can’t help but want to get our hands on the newest tech as soon as possible. I managed to keep my excitement controlled enough to…

Diving Into Resident Evil 7 (Finally)

For the longest time, I’ve lived as a quasi-fan of the Resident Evil series. With the exception of Resident Evil 6, I’ve always found myself excited whenever a new one was announced and more than happy to watch friends play through them. However, I’ve never been of a mind to actually play a Resident Evil…

Maquette Has a Release Date!

Maquette was first-announced almost a year ago now, and I honestly kind of forgot about it for awhile. With the usual packed release schedule and the general craziness of 2020, I suppose it was rather easy for a quirky indie game to get lost in the hustle of it all. All that said though, Annapurna…

DT Project Looks Interesting If Nothing Else

Digisky, a relatively new developer based in China, has announced “DT Project,” their very first AAA game. Now to be totally honest, my impression of China-developed games isn’t very good. The only stuff I’ve noticed come out of that space is mobile gacha-style games to stuff like Genshin Impact…another gacha-style game that also happens to…
