Man, Nintendo Switch game cases sure do stand out

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

You're going to get access to roughly 26GB of the Switch's 32GB onboard space, so if you aren't planning on buying a memory card and want to go digital, pay attention to the file sizes of each game before you buy them (or better yet, spring...   read

SNK teases new characters for King of Fighters XIV

As I've said before, King of Fighters XIV deserves more credit. Look, I get it if you were hesitant because of the art style. The pixelated visuals of the last few games were gorgeous, and eliminating it feels like a betrayal of sorts ...   read

Anyone remember Deep Down? Capcom just filed another trademark for it

Back when Deep Down was announced in 2013 it gave us a real Souls vibe, but a lot of people feared that it would be another "me too" type project. Well, since Souls is ending soon with the second and final DLC of potentially the last Souls ...   read
