Review: Hatred

When Hatred debuted, I pretty much kept quiet. No one can really win in that situation, when the explosion of opposing viewpoints was at its loudest. I decided to wait until the finished product was out and play it for m...

Killer Instinct closes out Season 2 with Aria

I'm glad that Killer Instinct was able to rise above the monumental bad press it obtained pre-launch. It really stands on its own as a fighting game, and I'm excited to see it played at tournies across the country, incl...

New Pokemon Shuffle update makes the game slightly less sleazy

One of the biggest problems with Pokemon Shuffle, beyond its exploitative item system, was the energy mechanic. In short, you could only play a scant five rounds at a time before you had to wait 30 minutes per round to rechar...

Guilty Gear Xrd is getting a follow-up called Revelator

I really enjoyed Guilty Gear Xrd on PS4. It was smooth, it looked beautiful, and mechanically, it was sound. But people really took issue with the limited cast, and wanted more. Arc System Works is partially addressing t...

What major MOBA are you playing right now?

"MOBA" is often a bad word/phrase in video game circles. As a fan of them since 2005 I kind of just shrug it off though -- this genre is here, and it's popular, guys. Embrace it or don't play it!  My MOBA history has bee...

You too can create this unholy monstrosity with amiibo in Yoshi's Woolly World

My God, Nintendo, what have you done. According to Nintendo of Europe, "over 40 amiibo" can be used in Yoshi's Woolly World. You'll be able to create gross voodoo dolls dedicated to smiting your eternal enemies with a slow and painful death cute woolly patterns for characters in the game. Yeah, this is amiibo support I can get behind. Nintendo of Europe [Twitter]

Did you really think Batman: Arkham Knight wouldn't have pre-order costumes?

Because WB has to monetize every single facet of their games (hello pay-for-fatalities on top of a Season Pass and lots of paid costume DLC), Batman: Arkham Knight will also feature more pre-order bonuses beyond its $40 ...

Go rock this unofficial Splatoon outfit in Animal Crossing

Do you still boot up Animal Crossing: New Leaf every once in a while? I'm a terrible neighbor -- I've probably caused a lot of woodland creatures to skip town because I never leave my house. For those of you who are stil...

That newish Gauntlet reboot is getting more updates at some point

Remember that new Gauntlet reboot that launched late last year? It was actually pretty decent, though it's a shame that it's only on PCs currently and not consoles, where it would make a perfect couch co-op game for thos...

Remember those cute Kidrobot Mega Man figures? They're coming this summer

Some time ago, Kidrobot announced a line of 3-inch Mega Man toys. They were to be sold in blind boxes for $11.99 each, with a 5-pack for $59.99. Then...we didn't really hear anything for over a year. Now, thanks to Vinyl Puls...

Bloodborne patch 1.04 arrives with some tweaks that make the game easier

Ah, Bloodborne. While I'm not quite sure how it ranks overall in terms of the Souls games (I need a few more years to ponder that), there's no doubt in my mind that I'll be returning to it periodically. A steady str...

Project CARS boss: 'We're running at about 23FPS on Wii U'

I enjoyed what I've played of Project CARS. It's geared towards simulation enthusiasts, but it's clear that the development team put a lot of heart into it. It's currently out for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but it's...
