From LEGO Dimensions
The reveal of LEGO Dimensions earlier this year was kind of bizarre. How can Traveller's Tales get all those different licenses? Jurassic Park, Scooby Doo, Batman, and Portal 2? It's like every kid's toy chest in video game f...
7 chances to win crazy awesomeness!
Almost seven years ago, Mommy's Best Games unleashed Weapon of Choice upon the world. Soon it was followed by Shoot 1up, Explosionade, and Game Type. Xbox Live indies were never the same. Now on Steam, Mommy's Best Games have...
In a West End town, a dead end world
As the tenth anniversary for the Assassin's Creed franchise draws closer, it's hard to imagine the series has been around for so long. I was two years out of high school when Altair and Desmond first made their appearance on ...
City of London, City of London
With October nearly here, it's about that time for Ubisoft to release another entry in its annual time-traveling trek through history. While Assassin's Creed has had highs and lows, no one can deny it's one of the few series ...
Familiar faces returning
Shocking only the holding-oniest of holdouts -- I'm talking skydiving with a parachute attached to brass knuckles -- Sony recommitted to Gravity Rush 2 at Tokyo Game Show 2015 with its first proper trailer and a 2016 release ...
Needed the additional processing power
While Hyrule Warriors Legends, an updated Nintendo 3DS port of last year's action game, will be compatible with older models of the portable, its stereoscopic 3D effects will not.
Speaking with 4Gamer at Tokyo Game Show, prod...
Also: tomb exploding
Lara Croft probably has some sort of death wish. Mountain climbing can be good exercise and recreation, but I don't think anybody in her right mind would swing from a grappling hook, launch 30 feet, then catch on a vertical r...
Did you...like it?
Enough time has passed, to the point where we can safely talk about the ending to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
As a common sense sort of reminder, this post below will contain spoilers. The comments will contain spoilers. This is a spoiler-heavy post about spoilers.
Hands-on with producer Tsukasa Takenaka
Resident Evil HD was pretty freaking great. Finally, Capcom stopped fumbling around with the franchise (I liked some parts of 6 well enough, but could have done without it), and went back to its roots. It's a polari...
Do it, Sega
It's no secret that I've been pining for a western release for Phantasy Star Online 2 for quite a while now. I'm hesistant to install the international version of the game, mostly because all of my friends are waiting on true...
You'll need a PlayStation 4 and PS Plus
My favorite part of this beta sign-up page for Dark Souls III is that you can shake the guy by wiggling your mouse from side to side. Life's a lot more fun when you treasure the little things.
Anyway, the actual beta registra...
Because I am stupid and I love it
I was surprised at Tokyo Game Show. It wasn't that there were melon-breasted anime women making out with each other in a trailer casually playing all about Sony's booth. It was that the line for Gravity Rush (Gravity Daze her...
I'm with Chris in that I don't see myself getting tired of From Software's action-RPGs anytime soon. Fatigue hasn't set in yet. That said, the opening areas of Dark Souls III aren't exactly fresh.
See for yourself! This footage from TGS 2015 covers the same stuff Steven and Chris previewed.
A massive framerate upgrade from PS2
Odin Sphere was one of the first games I played with my wife, and we had a perfect system. She would play a lot of the core areas during the day, and at night, I would plant seeds, gather food, and level up while she took a n...
Sengoku action-RPG about slaying demons
What stands out to you at Tokyo Game Show 2015? Nioh, yeah?
It's got that Onimusha / Souls thing going for it, which is a damn good thing to have.
More details have come out for the Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja action-RPG, as re...
In all the best ways
Current anime games are insane to me. This generation has basically made it possible to play an animated TV series, with a stable framerate to boot. Games like One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 on the PS4 run as smooth as silk, and manage to maintain an aesthetic that looks nigh indistinguishable from anime.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is one such game.
Par for the course, right?
As far as the action bits go, Clank generally takes the backseat while Ratchet is doing his thing. Sure, Clank facilitates some of it, but it's a tempered role. He's a sidekick who knows his job. That makes the relationship w...
It's nothing special so far
When Spike Chunsoft and tri-Ace announced Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky, I was supremely impressed with the visual style. As it turns out it looks even better in person, as I witnessed during my hands-on time with the TGS build.
From a gameplay standpoint though I have some concerns, mostly stemming from the repetitive nature of the flow.
It doesn't feel like a $20 expansion
When Bloodborne: The Old Hunters was announced, I was ecstatic to get back into the world of Yharnam again. After all, I beat Bloodborne three times after just one week with it, and thoroughly enjoyed the more action-oriented gameplay compared to its predecessors.
Based on my playthrough of a demo at TGS however, my excitement has been curbed a bit.
In the Americas and Europe
Bandai Namco announced here at Toyko Game Show 2015 that Dark Souls III will be releasing in April of 2016 in North and South America as well as Europe. That puts the latest entry in the Dark Souls series just a year after th...
Also, iPhone and Android
Square Enix is remaking Final Fantasy Adventure (called Mystic Quest in Europe) for PlayStation Vita and mobile, the company revealed today amidst all the excitement out of Tokyo Game Show.
Initially released for Ga...
Heigh-ho! It's off to war we go
Back at E3 2015, I got a special sneak peek at the upcoming Total War: Warhammer. The pre-alpha footage we were shown featured an intense battle between the Empire and Greenskins, and each side brought their largest weapons a...
Until September 30
Gazillion has implemented a voting system that will allow the community to pick the next Marvel Heroes 2016 character. There's only a few options at the moment, but most of them are good. Voting is open now on Game Informer's...
Nioh lives on with PlayStation 4
While Koei has been kicking around ideas for a game called Nioh since before the PlayStation 3 days -- take a look at this trailer from 2005! -- the project is only now coming to fruition. During Tokyo Game Show this week, it...
Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson, the latest entry in Marvelous and XSEED Games' bawdy action franchise, is now available for Nintendo 3DS in North America. The new release is available via the eShop for $39.99, as well as ...
Tecmo Koei's Toukiden, a popular hunting action game, will be receiving a sequel in 2016. The demure translator lady says that it will be "...very reali-realistic and o-open world..."
A crazy demon fought a small anime woman in a short cinematic and you'll know more when we do.
It's part of the season pass, too
Assassin's Creed Syndicate's set in Victorian London, and that seems like a great opportunity to get one of England's greatest villains in a video game. Ubisoft's carpe diem-ing. At Sony's Tokyo Game Show press briefing, a Ja...
Bring friends (or lots of potions)
In 2008, Castle Crashers rekindled my dormant love of beat-'em-ups. It had imaginative characters, strange and varied locales, and the four-player co-op was great at encouraging friendly competition. There wasn't much else li...
Includes all bonus DLC for free
I've got quite the soft spot for Omega Force's series of Musou titles. If you've heard of or played Dynasty Warriors, then you know exactly what they are. As the popularity of the studio's games grow with every release, it br...
Love blooms on the battlefield
Minor spoilers but not really.
So, Quiet is in Metal Gear Solid V, just like the cutscenes and footage from two years ago foretold. As it turns out, modding in Ocelot to take the place of her character model produces some amazing results, which you can see below.
This is why people fight for PC gaming.
