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…

Nintendo Labo VR and Possible Switch Mini

Two sets of news concerning Nintendo’s current (and possibly future) plans for the Switch have cropped up recently, the release of a Nintendo Labo VR and the possible rumor of a Switch Mini (I must emphasize that the latter has not been confirmed by Nintendo).  And I can’t help but speculate that, if rumors of…

Crackdown 3 Is Out Later This Month…Wow.

Crackdown 3 is out later this month, and…it’s kind of weird saying that. Games suddenly emerging from the bowels of development purgatory are nothing new, but after so many delays and so deadlines broken, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who thought the game would eventually wind up being vaporware. Obviously, I was wrong.

Xbox: Goodbye or Hello?

For the past several years, my household has started off each new year with the same question: Do we need a new console? Some years this has meant, do we need to replace a dying but still useful console?, such as an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. (As far as our library goes, these consoles…

Makers of ‘Until Dawn’ Trademark ‘Shattered State’

For many “Until Dawn” was one of the better horror experiences to come about during this console generation. Sure, it was more or less just a spooky walking-simulator peppered with QTEs, but that spookiness came across in a major way. “Until Dawn” sold its players on its atmosphere and managed to send a chill down…

N-No Virtual Console for the Switch?!

Say it ain’t so, Nintendo!  Say it ain’t so! Oh, don’t mind me.  I’m just…a bit upset right now.  It’s fine, really.  But hey, did you hear, Nintendo is apparently not bringing the Virtual Console to the Switch!  What is happening to my life!  I am ill-prepared for this news; why, cruel world, why!  (Oh,…

The First ‘Inside Xbox’ Premiers Saturday

Earlier this week, the Microsoft announced “Inside Xbox,” a first look at all everything that’s going to be happening on Xbox in the coming months. The first of these will drop this coming Saturday at 2PM CST and will focus on Sea of Thieves, PUBG, Far Cry 5, and the return of the original Xbox’s…

Gamevice is Suing Nintendo

In recent gaming news, it has come to my attention that a company called Gamevice is suing Nintendo.  Gamevice has created detachable controllers that attach to smartphones and tablets in much the same way as the Joy-Con controllers attach to the Switch.  If you’re interested in reading more, the web site I visited was CNBC….

Why E3 is Still Important

“I’m pleased  to announce…” These are the magic words of E3. They stoke excitement and they inspire the imagination. They are the prelude to much of what the audience is there to see. The show’s relevance has been getting called into question with increasing frequency over the years, and it’s understandable. Thanks to the internet the…

Time To Go Full Throttle?

DoubleFine fans will still need to wait awhile until the studio is ready to release Psychonauts 2, but those looking for a taste of that wonderfully delightful DoubleFine flair in the meantime are in luck. Another early classic from Tim Schafer’s time at LucasArts has been remastered and released earlier this week! Which excellent piece…
