Saturday Video Round Up: July 23 – 29

The Round Up is back on track after a few weeks off and a catch all version last week. With July almost at an end, we’re quickly moving head first into the fall rush and already the trailers are starting to arrive. Here’s a small taste of what’s waiting for you below the jump. Middle-earth:…

YouTube Highlights: Weekly Edition #20

What a week, what a week! If ever there was a one truly happy moment about a week, it’s that moment when you realize that the weekend is only a few steps away. Which is where we are right now. (So meta.) To aid you in getting into your weekend groove, why not take a…

Resonance: Secunda

For no terribly good reason, I recently took a new trip through The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I played through the game only once when it was new(ish), and at the time, the experience didn’t leave much of a lasting impact. I couldn’t say what exactly brought on the inkling to pick up the game…

Observer: A Cyberpunk Experience from Bloober Team

The makers of “Layers of Fear” have announced a new game recently. The project is known as “Observer” and appears to be a horror game set in a cyberpunk style future. It looks promising, but question is whether or not Bloober Team has learned from past mistakes and criticisms.

A KH3 Release Date, Toy Story, and More

I’ve long since lost track of the number of years we’ve been waiting to hear this news.  But it’s finally confirmed…Kingdom Hearts 3 is indeed something that’s going to happen in our lifetimes!  It was announced at Disney’s D23 convention that this greatly anticipated game is scheduled for release in 2018.  When in 2018, I…

Pyre and Buying Based on Developer

Most of the time, buying a game based solely on who’s developing it is good way to set oneself up for disappointment. Heck, in this modern world of video game advertising it can be a bad idea to buy based off a demo (I’m looking at you vanilla Destiny).  There is still a short list…

Is…is that a new Street Fighter EX game?

That’s exactly what I stammered upon seeing this the other day: It HAS to be, right? Those characters, that music…ahhh…the memories. Don’t worry, I’m not going to blather on about my history with Street Fighter or the middling relationship I have with Street Fighter EX 3 (the only SF EX game I’ve played), mainly because…

Age Doesn’t Make a Game Dated

It was thanks to Cary’s recent post, Playing Games Past Their Prime, that I had a revelation concerning a few questions I had been asking as of late.  It largely boils down to: why do some old games feel dated, while others from the same era do not?  Furthermore, how is it that even new…

The Road Better Left Untaken

I love Crash but playing through the Crash Bandicoot N’ Sane Trilogy reminded me of just how infuriating the original game could be. It requires much greater levels of precision and endurance than its successors, and there no level that typifies this more than “The High Road’. I truly, absolutely, wholeheartedly, and unabashedly hate “The…

YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #18

Welcome one, and welcome all. If it’s Friday (and it is), that means it’s time for another drive round our ol’ ranch of gaming videos to see how things shaped up over the past week. If you find yourself having a good time here, then why not mosey on over to our YouTube channel to…

It features a one terabyte white console, a matching white controller, a hard copy of the game, and a digital voucher for the expansion pass and extra DLC. Its list price is $449, and if you need to mark your calendar,…
