Of Rogue Warrior fame
I'm sorry, how did I miss this? All of this. Let me step back.
Jim DeFelice co-wrote the book American Sniper with the titular American sniper and Scott McEwen. This later spawned an unfortunate Oscar-bait film that made ins...
RNG and music bugs fixed
A pair of nasty-sounding bugs have kept some fans from picking up Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 4, but they're finally fixed as of an update this week. You're good to go.
One of the issues involved random nu...
I'm every genre, it's all in me
Real-time RPG, turn-based RPG, tactical RPG, hack and slash, bullet hell, beat-'em-up, rhythm, side-scrolling shooter, fighter, puzzler, platformer, Metroidvania, and more: Evoland 2 takes basically every classic genre a...
I like the art!
We're a couple weeks out from Tokyo Game Show and pre-show news is starting to slip in.
Bandai Namco, which I'm only now realizing I've gotten used to calling "Bandai Namco" after years of typing "Namco Bandai," has opened a teaser website for a new game titled City Shrouded in Shadow "Granzella." The lone image depicts a horse, a sword, and a castle.
What's in that castle? Nothing good, I'm sure.
A mathematical analysis
When I started playing Pokémon Shuffle Mobile earlier this week, I noticed a weird discrepancy between it and the 3DS version. When the option to use a Great Ball came up, it was asking for 3500 coins, up 40% from 2500...
Pretty fly for a Pikachu
Starting tomorrow, Japan will kick off a Pokemon Halloween Parade event. At participating Pokemon Center affiliates and online, you'll be able to buy spooky merch, most of which features Pikachu.
You'll find such items as the...
Everything else is metal as hell
One glance at Wolf Brew Games' Slain! and it's immediately obvious where it draws inspiration from. This is hack-and-slash action from the '80s and '90s that takes no prisoners in its violent pursuit. The gore-fille...
In many respects, Hatsune Miku symbolizes my interest in Japan. It doesn't matter how much I learn about the virtual pop star or the amazing/bizarre subculture that has taken root around her; it's tough to imagine ever truly ...
It wasn't looking good previously
Last we heard, Freedom Planet was delayed indefinitely thanks to a major issue with the Wii U code. Thankfully, developer GalaxyTrail has found the problem, confirming the progress to Nintendo Life.
According to the devs...
Pros and cons
After about my 50th hour into Pokémon Shuffle for the 3DS, I regretted getting into it late. When it released, I did what most people do when they hear "free-to-play;" I tuned it out without giving it a second thought....
HAL needed to sign off on Kirby
It's still weird to me that Bowser and Donkey Kong are appearing in the new Skylanders game, as part-amiibo nonetheless. Still, Nintendo has always bragged for years on end how they host the best Skylanders sales and hav...
Having played Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for roughly 100 hours, I think I'm ready to make an assessment of it in terms of how it relates to the rest of the franchise. While it's definitely up there, it's far fr...
Uh, get on that Nintendo
The official site for Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is up, and it has a few extra details regarding the release, as well as new screens and a video. Other details have come out, like the fact that it's 1GB in size, and featu...
The Xbox One switched wallets
As most of you are aware of by now, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has some online features in the form of PVP invasion and Mother Base FOB construction. These require you to be online, and require that the servers...
Bungie offers preview of Crucible modes and maps
Destiny players will be able to access a taste of the upcoming expansion, The Taken King, for free next week.
Bungie confirmed that while you won't be able to test out any new super abilities or increase the level 34 cap...
Guinness shares the latest gaming records
Edit: Can't get the images to display for some reason - sorry! :( Have removed them for now, but will pop them back in as soon as I can.
The latest edition of Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition shares a heap of new ...
Threepwood shall rise once more... maybe
Monkey Island is a pretty major series in the history of adventure games. Famed for its humour, story, and setting, the series later received an absolutely gorgeous set of remakes. I know countless people who’ve been in...
Halfway to how it should've been!
Oh Arkham Knight, you were a trainwreck and a half, weren’t you? When it released on PC a few months ago, it was slammed for it’s terrible performance, bugs, and overall rushed production. The game was pulled from...
Play with me, maybe
I write about Killing Floor 2 perhaps too often, but considering it's the main game I play whenever I have free time, my eyes are always searching for relevant news. If my raving about it hasn't been enough to convi...
Paging Mr. Ponce to the comment section
Since Super Mario Bros. first hit screens in 1993, filmmakers have been trying to bring the imaginative worlds from video games to the silver screen. Whether they’ve been successful at doing so or not depends on whom yo...
A new adventure from Runic Games
Zelda. Ico. Shadow of the Colossus. Even a little Metroid.
Runic Games has borrowed concepts from these iconic adventures for its next PC and console game, Hob. Why "Hob?" Well, the name has a dual meaning that refers to litt...
The first trailer for The Gamechangers, the story behind Rockstar Games' battle with former lawyer Jack Thompson, has been released. The important thing here to note is Daniel Radcliffe has a beard and looks like a total bad...
No frog suit, no buy
Super Mario Maker has been making me think dangerous thoughts about buying a Wii U. It just looks so charming and sweet that I've been secretly generating rationales and excuses to myself to go out and blow a few hundred doll...
'We rose to the challenge'
Naughty Dog will try something new with Nathan Drake's adventures in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End -- a story outside of the base game's story. Earlier this week, the developer detailed Uncharted 4's downloadable conte...
Sometime this fall
Harmonix is going back to the crowdfunding well after its successful Amplitude campaign, but it's not going the Kickstarter route. It's going with something far more trendy right now.
The music game developer plans ...
Get that free Diablo before it's gone!
Blizzard is, ironically, putting an end to the Eternal Conflict event on September 8 next week. The Diablo theme will be taken out, and the special event quest to genocide every last Treasure Goblin will come to an end. ...
Frictional compares the two
In June, I told myself to stay away from watching and subsequently covering any more trailers for SOMA. That was going well -- until today. Curiosity got the better of me, but at least this "Environments" trailer is abstract ...
Moving in the right direction
The advent of eSports in mainstream media has taken off like a rocket lately. Big names like Red Bull are sponsoring teams and running editorial websites. ESPN's giving it front page placement during tournaments.
In the insta...
'Strip the flesh, salt the wound'
Current-generation console owners have been able to get their Borderlands fix via The Handsome Collection, but the game that started it all is notably missing from the HD rerelease. Soon enough, Xbox One users will have a way...
That's when it goes free-to-play
Before WildStar released, I planned on playing it. Really, I did!
But like so many other MMOs before it, when the big day arrived, I was preoccupied with other games and lost interest. With the relaunch closing in, I suspect ...
