Star Wars and Marvel on the table for Kingdom Hearts III

First, let's remember that Kingdom Hearts 2 did Pirates of the Caribbean and John Depp. And they released games called Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Birth By Sleep, and Dream Drop Distance, so the series is i...

Final Fantasy Type-0, but as a boring history doc for some reason?

I thought fascista Steve Blum at the onset--Type-0's Cid--had a Guile pompadour rather than an army hat. And I guess the hat makes sense, but then his young homie has big anime hair anyways and no sensible hat, so I'm lost a...

Square Enix announcing new console RPG that 'isn't a remake'

Square Enix was quiet this year. It's been all publishing and Final Fantasy milking. A Realm Reborn supposedly became something worth playing,  Final Fantasy X, X-2 HD came out, random crap like the Final Fanta...

You won't have to leave home for this Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire shiny Beldum distribution photo
You won't have to leave home for this Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire shiny Beldum distribution
by Jordan Devore

Now through January 14, 2015, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players can claim a free shiny Beldum via in-game internet distribution. No GameStop visit necessary!

The Pokémon comes with its Mega Stone so, eventually, you can have your own shiny Mega Metagross. The X on its face turns from yellow to blue during the Mega Evolution process for what I'm sure are highly scientific biological reasons and not because "damn that looks cool!"

Review: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth
by Kyle MacGregor

Some concoctions will leave you feeling sick to your stomach. You need look no further than Yukiko Amagi's culinary misadventures for proof of that. Other pairings seem to work far better than they probably should, like Atlus RPG fusion Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth.

The title blends two of the studio's prized franchises, Persona and Etrian Odyssey, unifying disparate types of role-playing games into a cohesive and complementary experience.

I want to run right past these gravekeeper hags in Bloodborne

Bloodborne isn't coming out until March. That means I have a solid few months to mentally prepare myself for these horrific things, described by Sony Japan Studio producer Masaaki Yamagiwa as "deformed gravekeeper hags." I do...

Korean MMO seems to outdo recent JRPGs

Just aesthetically, Peria Chronicles looks better than all these budget, tropefest JRPGs that fill time between Persona installments. And it's more impressive when you realize that this is a (Korean) MMO with ...

Holy summoned triceratops, Lost Ark looks fantastic

The video above is a little on the long side, but it is worth watching. It usually takes a lot to get me interested in anything fantasy-themed (more like Bored of the Rings, right?), but Lost Ark looks like it might be the e...

I gave away my best Pokémon photo
I gave away my best Pokémon
by Jordan Devore

For a couple months now, I've been thinking about getting rid of my Pokémon collection.

My favorite part of the series is catching 'em all and for years that motivation has fueled my interest in these games. I'm not into forming the ideal team, breeding Pokémon with perfect stats, or finding shinies. Just acquiring them -- all seven hundred of them -- one by one.

With Pokémon X, I finally did it. It took months of whittling down a giant list of absences in my Pokédex but thanks to in-depth online resources detailing locations and catch rates, an active community of online traders, and the ability to easily transfer old legendaries and stragglers from past titles, I did it. I earned a little crown in my National Pokédex signifying 100 percent completion. (Though, admittedly, I never bothered to get #719, Diancie. Whatever.)

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire release this Friday and I thought it would be fun to start over. To work my way back up. But rather than let my Pokémon X save file go to waste, I decided to use the Wonder Trade feature extensively. It matches two players at random for a blind online trade and while most people exchange total crap, there are kindhearted folks who take pleasure in handing out rarities. I'm far from innocent, but I've given back on occasion.

Now, originally, my plan was to give away every last one of my Pokémon via Wonder Trade (excluding restricted Pokémon obtained from distribution events). I mindlessly made it to around 80 trades before realizing this was a bad idea and started questioning my sanity.
