A Ni no Kuni Movie?

It seems like a lot of video games have been adapted into movies lately, and fortunately, this one is not live action.  That’s right, folks, they’re apparently making a Ni no Kuni movie, which is, thankfully, keeping the animated look of the games.  The only unfortunate thing…right now, there’s no word of it being released…

Just Cause 4 Leans it’s Inherent Silliness With Destruction DLC

Ever since Just Cause 2, the series has been more about seeing how many ridiculous things one can pull off with Rico Rodriguez’s insane arsenal than anything else. There’s always a story involving liberating this state or that country from a cartoonish dicator, but they always take a backseat to goofy grapple tricks and chain…

Ni no Kuni II: A Review

Christmas is always the best time for catching up on all the games I missed, and one such game that I was able to obtain thanks to Christmas of 2018 was Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom.  Though I was a big fan of the first game on the PS3, I’ll admit I was rather…

PSN Users Can Finally Change Names

Well, they did it; they finally did it.  After years and years of PlayStation users requesting the ability to change their online ID, Sony has finally figured out how to make it possible on PSN. Why it took them almost two console generations and 13 years to implement is still anybody’s guess, but the feature…

Reaching One’s Limit: Ni no Kuni II

I have noticed with a lot of gamers that we, as a group, seem to be willing to put up with a great deal of aggravation in pursuit of our dearest hobby.  We all have different levels of tolerance, but I have been rather impressed with various Youtubers who are willing to subject themselves to…

Halo: Reach is Finally Coming Back!

So, it’s finally happening. After years of answers like “we’re definitely interested” and “maybe” whenever they were asked, 343 Industries has finally announced that Halo: Reach will be added to Halo: The Master Chief Collection later this year.
