Persona 5 is exactly what the Persona series needed

Back when Persona 4 Golden released, I considered its advent as the sign that we as a society had hit the point of "Peak Persona." That game took the already-polished structure of Persona 4 - itself a refinement of&...

The forgotten legacy of Zelda II

Zelda II turned 30 years old in Japan a few weeks ago. It was a quiet anniversary, one fitting the black sheep of a prestigious family. Just last year, writers were tripping over themselves to mark the 30th anniversary of the release of th...

Josh Tolentino's personal picks for Game of the Year 2016

It's been a pretty grim year for many people, but all things considered, it's been great if all you care about is games and anime! Thank goodness, then, that we're on a website primarily concerned with those things, which means I don't have...

Hot and Steamy: Uncensored nude genitals climaxing

It is that time of year in America, the time when families get together to eat food and hate each other while doing it. It's also the time of year when everyone starts their holiday shopping by standing in line for hours to buy repurposed o...

Hitting the streets with Beat Cop's preview build

I used to work in a police station, two to be precise. Nothing special, just simple administrative stuff, but working for the law opened my eyes to one major revelation: police work is boring. Still, that hasn’t stopped me from loving...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Downpour

“Lost the plot and for what?” sang Ed Harcourt on “Here Be Monsters,” one of Silent Hill: Downpour’s licensed tracks; a question easily applied to the acerbic state of the series in 2012. Looking back, Downpour...

The soundtrack of my gaming life

I have a deep love of ritual. Like my caveman ancestors before me (who would rally around a stone obelisk, or a collection of goat skulls, and dance to the pounding beat of skin drums), I have my own profane customs. Nothing puts me more i...

How I learned to love fighting games again

Asking people why they love a certain kind of game is a waste of time. Our tastes are a complex combination of factors with granular levels and waxing and waning moods, an alchemical formula that requires fourth dimensional physics and forb...

 
 
Persona 5 trailer subs! photo

I translated the new Persona 5 trailer, so let's analyze it

Persona 5's a thing, eh? The game is set for a Japanese release this September, but at the moment, overseas fans are still left in the dark as to when localized versions of the latest in Atlus' hit series will make it to their shores. I can...

The not-so-secret musings of The Secret World noob

As some of you already know, I almost lost the fire inside. Video games didn’t excite me anymore, and while that was mostly down to their ever-decreasing circles of creativity, I’d also gotten lazy, stuck in my ways. The same th...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Shattered Memories

Shattered Memories opens with a perfect family moment captured on VHS. A young girl proclaims undying love for her father, before the tape stops, rewinds, and replays the scene again. The repetition continues until that warm feeling in your...

VR has a serious issue in the real world

With the impending release of retail VR headsets early next month, I've been working out how to rearrange my house to accommodate room-tracking technology. Moving tables, pushing back sofas, securing down TVs, and taking into account how...

Very Quick Tips: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is one of my favorite games and its sequel does everything it did, only better, and adds a lot more content including single-player campaigns for each side and a large overworld brimming with secrets....

 
 
The Vive is too expensive photo

Things that are less expensive than the HTC Vive

With the current exchange rate, the $799 Vive will cost roughly $1099 in Canadian dollars where I live (not counting taxes and any extra charges). That's a whole lot of cash. While I'm as excited as anyone else at the idea of stumbling arou...
