Monolith says Shadow of War's end fight won't suck

Maybe the strongest praise for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor necessitates pointing out its most glaring flaw. The game was a darling, managing to please fans and earn critical acclaim. All of that in spite of the fact that the final b...

Nioh's third and final DLC adds a new mode this month

Just the other day, I caught Nioh out of the corner of my eye and wished I had a clone to level up my character during the day, as I worked, so I could finally dig into the Defiant Honor DLC. I'm way behind, to say nothing of the heightened...

Monster Hunter: World will be the one that gets me

My history with the Monster Hunter series is painfully, regretfully abrupt. I attempted to get into it years ago, on PlayStation Portable, but bounced off so hard that I can't even confidently say which installment I tried. That experience ...

Suda51 is hinting at multiplayer for Travis Strikes Again

One of the gimmicks on the Nintendo Switch is the ability to split the controller in half for instant multiplayer action. A bunch of games allow you to play with a single Joy-Con and apparently Travis Strikes Again will do just the same. In...

SteamWorld Dig 2 feels like a proper sequel

I couldn't be more thrilled that SteamWorld Dig is getting a follow-up. I loved its core loop of digging, collecting treasure, and heading up to the surface to buy upgrades that enabled you to delve deeper and more efficiently, opening up n...

Review: Knack II

I think if I had to pick one reaction to sum up my thoughts on the Knack franchise it would be "confusion." It's a feeling that is even more profound after playing Knack II.

Fire Emblem Heroes gets a ridiculous live action trailer

Fire Emblem Heroes has done well for Nintendo. I mean, it's kind of funny that Mario for all intents and purposes failed on the mobile platform as a premium game, but a gashapon gambling free-to-play Fire Emblem game became a hit, but that'...

River City just won't die! The game that has had us barfing for the last two decades is getting another new installment this year, though this time it will be on the 3DS...it's also not Knights of Justice that I reported on in May. This new...

Nintendo reveals Star Fox 2 manual and design documents

Manuals may be fading away, but maybe they'll get one last hurrah as Nintendo has uploaded a full manual to Star Fox 2; the same kind of manual we used to expect to come with each new game. It details the story, characters, controls, featur...

Inti Creates' latest Switch game is a co-op action-RPG

Inti Creates has done right by Nintendo Switch owners with Blaster Master Zero and Mighty Gunvolt Burst, and its next game looks even more up my alley. Dragon: Marked for Death is an action-RPG from director Ryota Ito (Mega Man Zero, ZX, 9,...

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is in the works

Warhammer: Vermintide went over well enough that Fatshark is making another one. Details are near-non-existent for the sequel, but I have to imagine it'll follow a similar Skaven-slaying format. "Set in the dark and grim Warhammer Fantasy w...

Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...
