GTA Online shows no signs of stopping with its gunrunning update next month

You probably don't think about GTA V all that often anymore, but literally tens of thousands of people are thinking about (or playing) GTA Online daily. There's a reason the base game is so massively successful years down the line -- becaus...   read

Final Fantasy XII's Gambit system seems unchanged in Zodiac Age, and that's perfectly okay

While Final Fantasy XII's gambit system (read: ability to assign AI tasks with provisos) wasn't perfect, it was ahead of its time, especially for a console RPG. Obnoxious marketing speak aside in the trailer, it does a decent job of explain...   read

Far Cry 5 is coming in February, watch the full trailer here

Far Cry is an interesting franchise, in that it's probably the most "Ubisoft" of all with its multitude of radio towers and map screen dots, but it also excites people more than a lot of their other work. This trailer for Far Cry 5 is ...   read

Review: Vanquish (PC)

Platinum might be a universally loved company, but not all of their games are. This is especially evident in the studio's era of licensed projects, with Korra operating as their most polarizing game to date, alongside of the contentiou...   read

Nintendo Download: Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

The Switch keeps up its momentum this week with Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers -- as a Switch exclusive it's a pretty big get, though Capcom notes that it could come to other platforms eventually. Disgaea 5 Complete is ...   read

Review: RiME

Rime has been through hell. Tequila Works initially pitched it to Microsoft, which didn't end up working out. Then they went to Sony with another exclusive offer, which did work out, until it didn't. Now they're back with a vengeance on fou...   read

What is your most played fighting game right now?

It's a golden age for fighting games right now. Not only are retro titles popping up like daisies all over the place (including the Switch), but we're getting a treasure trove of fighters within a three week span -- Injustice 2, Guilty Gear...   read

Witcher standalone card game Gwent is now in public beta

I still haven't really dug into Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, but I can rectify that soon now that it's in public beta on PC, PS4, and Xbox One (I mean, I kinda have since I played it in the series proper). While it was available ...   read

8Bitdo controllers can now be used on Switch, I'd recommend playing Ultra Street Fighter II with them

When I was researching classic pads to use for just about any platform, a lot of folks pointed me toward the manufacturer 8Bitdo. But it wasn't until I got a chance to try a remote that was packed into the Analogue Mini NT that I caught on....   read

Overwatch's anniversary event is here, bringing skins, dances, and new maps

It's hard to believe that Overwatch has not only been out for a year, but that it's one of Blizzard's biggest successes, and one of its only new IPs in over a decade. They're pushing hard when it comes to their global eSports presence,...   read

Once again, the protagonist can't catch a break in Far Cry 5

It's kind of a running joke that each Far Cry "hero" (Ajay was far more of a paragon than Jason) is screwed at the start, or on the game's packaging. I mean, more screwed than the average comeback tale, at least -- we haven't had a wis...   read

This cartoon nicely sums up how crazy getting to Goron City is in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

I played Zelda: Breath of the Wild the same way I've played every Souls game since Demon's -- pre-launch, without guides or outside contact. Exploring Hyrule knowing absolutely nothing about the game (and with minimal trailer...   read

This LEGO replica of Impa's house from Zelda: Breath of the Wild is off to a good start

After taking a look at this partially finished replica of Impa's house from Zelda: Breath of the Wild that a friend turned me onto this morning, I just had to peruse creator Jonas Kramm's Instagram account and give it a shoutout. ...   read

Review: Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

I can remember the first time I played Street Fighter II. It was the same day one of my friends brought an SNES copy of the game into school in his backpack, even though we had already planned on going to his house later that day. The ...   read

Arms only takes up 2.2GB on Switch, which is somehow much less than NBA Playgrounds

Nintendo is famously known for their optimization, which helps out plenty of folks who are short on space for their various consoles and portables. It was just reported in fact that Arms, the upcoming Switch fighter, will only take up 2.2GB...   read

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

One patient Zelda: Breath of the Wild player escorted a Bokoblin for miles

So as most RPG players know (especially MMO goers), enemies typically have a rubber banding range. After reaching a certain distance during a chase said foes will usually cease their pursuit and return to their default staging area. But in ...   read

Along with re-confirming that the new Mordor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War will utilize the power of the Xbox Scorpio and PS4 Pro, they also put any rumors of a Switch version to bed. Speaking to GameSpot, Monolith creative VP Mich...   read

Rime follows Minecraft as latest Switch game that runs at 720p on both tablet and TV

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

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
