Review: Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2

As the third iteration of the barely three-year-old Xrd, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 is a tough sell if you're only halfway invested in the series. I mean, this is an aggressive stance for anyone, and it's clear that developer Arc System Works is...   read

Destiny 2 isn't 60FPS on consoles because the PS4 Pro can't even run it

When it was revealed that Destiny 2 wouldn't be 60FPS on the PlayStation Pro, it made perfect sense. I mean, with the series leaning so heavily into PVP, how bad would it be if Pro owners could benefit from an enhanced framerate while ...   read

Rime will launch this week on PC, PS4, and Xbox One after quite a bit of strife on Tequila Works' part. But it's also slated for Switch, eventually, and when it does hit that platform it'll be locked at 720p all around. Speaking to Game Rea...   read

Bloodstained, Kickstarted in 2015, is only '20 to 30 percent' done

It takes a lot to make a game. Like, a whole lot of money, blood, sweat, tears, and time. Koji Igarashi (IGA) knows this as an experienced developer, but even he is aware that he needs to kick things up at notch with Bloodstained, whic...   read

Check your email for some bonus My Nintendo points

It's a small thing, but a number of people who are registered with My Nintendo (myself included) have obtained an email asking them to take a survey, which nets you some extra (albeit useless) Platinum Points. Some of it is Switch related, ...   read

This Legend of Zelda mecha mashup is delightful

Model artist Khris Ramirez does some fantastic work, but I just had to share this mashup of The Legend of Zelda with the SD Neo Zeong Gundam. I love that Link not only perfectly fits inside, but he's also operating it with hi...   read

Nintendo responds to blind fan in braille, proving there's good in the world

While Nintendo does some confoundingly weird things like alienate hundreds of thousands of fans with archaic YouTube practices and the like, they're also known to break corporate character in ways that many other publishers don't. One such ...   read

Pokemon Go lead hints at legendary Pokemon this summer

Among some sweet dedications and some absolutely cringeworthy retorts from host Joel McHale (I just get flashbacks to his duties for Ubisoft), Niantic took the stage during the 21st Annual Webby Awards to accept an award for Pokemon Go. Giv...   read

'No plans' for Destiny 2 on Switch, which is called 'unrealistic'

Now that the Nintendo Switch has hit the ground running and people actually care about it, developers have to be ready for the always looming "is it coming to Switch" question. That was naturally posed to Bungie by IGN this past week as a r...   read

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe gets a semi-substantial patch

Typically when Nintendo patches something, they're trying to eliminate vulnerabilities or add that sweet sweet "stability" into the mix (which is usually code for "we got rid of more vulnerabilities"). Today with update 1.1 for Mario Kart 8...   read

Here's a look at the Fire Emblem: Echoes Season Pass that costs more than the game

When I first saw the price for Fire Emblem Echoes' season pass I had to do a double take. $45? That's five bucks more than the base game! Alas, it exists, it's here today, and you can buy it. While Nintendo has been pretty upfront about wha...   read

It's a big day for the 3DS, as Fire Emblem Echoes, a remake of the second game in the series, is out. Strangely you can also opt to buy the Season Pass, which is $5 more than the $40 retail game. Also on 3DS is Drancia Saga, Mysterious Star...   read

Rumor has it that Microsoft is trying to salvage Scalebound

If you forgot (or are hearing it for the first time), the Microsoft and Platinum collaboration Scalebound was canceled several months ago. I mean, some of us kind of saw it coming in a way given the Xbox One's awful performance in Japa...   read

Mass Transit makes Cities: Skylines even more beautiful

I feel like Cities: Skylines has just the right amount of complexity. I recently went back to Sim City 2000 by comparison (which holds up!), and was taken aback by how much I had to divine (or remember) on my own. Not that it's a ...   read

A cute strategy game is coming to Switch, but it's not Advance Wars

I mean, you know Advance Wars is coming at some point on the Switch. My guess is Intelligent Systems is going to wrap on the new Switch Fire Emblem (no, not the Warriors game) then at least send a side squad to investigate it...   read
