Bloodborne doesn't get much of a boost from the PS4 Pro's boost mode

When it comes to the PS4 Pro's upcoming "Boost Mode" that's now in beta testing, there's only one genre I really care about in terms of any sort of performance enhancement -- action games. If you can make a mascot platformer slightly more e...   read

Yeah, I'd take a first person Castlevania dungeon crawler

Turning classic games on their head can be a lot of fun. Genre flipping is always a risk, but if it pans out, it can create a whole new fanbase. The creator of the Evan Yeti webcomic wants to do just that, tweeting out a work in progress sc...   read

NieR: Automata is a lot more involved than I initially thought

The first NieR: Automata demo I played (which was subsequently open to the public) was a way for Platinum to showcase its action prowess. It mostly centered on combat, and barely any time was spent idling away in menus. A new preview build ...   read

Your mileage may vary on Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, depending on how much you value Battle Mode

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is somewhat of a weird precedent for Nintendo. The Wii U failed, for all intents and purposes, so they're taking Mario Kart 8, a game that's not even three years old and selling it again on the Switch as a faux "Game of ...   read

Super Bomberman R is going to be a tough sell at $50, unless you have lots of parties

Super Bomberman R came out of nowhere during the Nintendo Switch reveal event, after the legendary mascot had been sidelined for over half a decade. Headlined by Konami and HexaDrive (who typically works on ports, like Rez HD or Snake Eater...   read

You'll definitely want to use a Switch Pro Controller for Ultra Street Fighter II

Capcom has been pretty mum on a few details regarding Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, including the pricepoint, which is rumored to be whereabouts of $40 for the west. While that's still an unknown right now I did get a chan...   read

Roadhog and Winston just got tweaks in Overwatch along with Bastion

Blizzard shared some patch notes three days ago in what I'm referring to as the "Bastion patch." Currently in PTR, the update adds CTF to the mix, as well as a server browser. In terms of hero changes the big alterations involve Bastion, wh...   read

Snake Pass brings David Wise on board, days after its Switch announcement

Snake Pass, revealed late last year, always looked like a neat little modern take on Snake Rattle 'n' Roll for the NES, but it never really grabbed me -- until this week, that is. The team over at Sumo Digital just announced that David Wise...   read

Where do you want Call of Duty to go next?

Yesterday, Activision announced that they're taking a break from Call of Duty. Just kidding! That was Skylanders. COD has three developers working around the clock to ensure that there's an annual iteration, and it's still selling very...   read

I call dibs on Ninjara for Nintendo Switch's Arms

Arms never really stood out to me until I started seeing more of it in action. I doubt it'll be the next big thing everyone is playing, but I'm sure I'll get some enjoyment out of it, as it basically looks like Punch Out!! with a more multi...   read

Oculus closes 200 Best Buy demo stations, begging the question 'does anyone want to demo VR?'

Forget the idea of pinkeye and the fear of germs from slipping your head (and hair/part of your face) into a VR headset that's been used hundreds of times, VR has always had a "demo" problem. When I was first shown VR, it was some lousy tec...   read

BioWare finally remembers that forcing 'good or bad' choices doesn't work for every game

BioWare used to be a master of nuance. Growing up I'd play their RPGs in awe of their ability to tell a story without having to resort to rote "this is good or bad" moral choices. Often times the outcome was grey, and you'd have to live wit...   read

Nintendo Download: Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime

I'm glad that Azure Striker Gunvolt has some sort of audience. An audience big enough, at least, to warrant to full entries, a spinoff, and an anime. It came out of nowhere with none of the hype of Mighty No. 9 and fully surpassed it critic...   read

I'll take any snippet I can get of Ni No Kuni 2

I could listen to the music from the Ni No Kuni series all day. It's whimiscal, beautiful, and sometimes haunting. It's just a wonderful little series all around, and Ni No Kuni 2 is one of my most anticipated games ever -- the or...   read

Fire Emblem Heroes poll results coming tomorrow, 200 Platinum reward rolling out now

Super Mario Run kind of came and went after a lot of hype, partially on Apple's end. But with Fire Emblem Heroes, they're keeping the good times rolling -- and I suspect they're going to reap the benefits financially from that effort. ...   read

Someone translated the Full Metal Alchemist GBA game

Man, Full Metal Alchemist. It's required reading for incoming anime enthusiasts, and for good reason -- it ticks all the right boxes -- especially the newer series, Brotherhood, which is a direct manga adaptation. If you're pining for the o...   read

Here's how New Game+/postgame works in Nioh

Kojima says he isn't into making horror games at the moment because they scare him

I don't think I've had a nightmare in the past five years or so. Occasionally I hear stories of people waking up terrified (one involved a clown that chased my friend through a city, ripped off the top of a building, and yelled "I'm in cont...   read

This straightforward overview video nails what sets the Nintendo Switch apart

One of the most confusing things about the Switch is how it has three different "modes." The Wii U was the same way with two specifications, one of which (tablet only, or, "off-screen play") may not have been supported. It's the same thing ...   read

Nintendo President: Backward compatibility for controllers 'may be considered' for Switch

Pokemon Go's next event is a Chansey-heavy Valentine's Day celebration

Pokemon Go might have fallen off, but there's still a dedicated fanbase that's driving its revenue to eclipse most games released these days, mobile or otherwise. I do notice a rise in players during events though, and the next one is for V...   read

Dark Souls III's final DLC promises a 'conclusive ending,' new footage emerges

They just keep making Warhammer 40,000 games: Inquisitor - Martyr is hitting alpha soon
