One year later, ReCore's finally pretty good

Today, September 13, is the one-year anniversary of ReCore's release. In our review, I scored it a 4 out of 10, citing a ton of technical issues and a needlessly drawn-out end-game as factors that overshadowed how good the first two-thirds ...

What's up with ReCore? We find out in five days

You'd be forgiven if you thought ReCore was dead. For months now, it's existed akin to a heart rate monitor that blips the faintest beat just often enough to indicate there's still some life left. We'll find out in five days what that ...

Inafune's struggling studio Comcept acquired by Level-5

Inafune just got a life preserve. It's no secret that the once on-top Mega Man producer (and father of the character, not creator) has been struggling with the studio he founded in 2010, Comcept. Mighty No. 9 failed to meet basically anyone...

Why Destiny 2 is failing as an esport

Yes, the title itself is a misnomer. For one thing, Destiny 2 was never intended to be an esport. Or rather, the developers, Bungie, have never made a direct claim. At least, they never cited they would instantly turn it into a big one. For instance, in an interview last August...

ReCore gets a demo, and that's the best way to experience it

Those who are on the fence about buying ReCore have the opportunity to get pushed over to the other side. Microsoft has released a demo for its $40 budget title. The demo is unfiltered access to the first half hour of Joule's journey t...

ReCore's Xbox One load times are getting fixed this week

ReCore players on Xbox One will soon find that the game demands slightly less of their time. Armature Studios is rolling out a patch this week that cuts down on the egregiously long loading sequences, some of which are in excess of two...

ReCore's missing fifth robot seemingly coming as DLC

Players who have put significant time in ReCore have noticed something that's kind of off. The game makes room for a fifth robot companion -- there's allotted space in the menu, references to the T8-NK frame, and five hunting challenge...

ReCore's lengthy load times won't be improved for launch

Now that I've had a chance to play through all of ReCore, I realize that it's a game I liked a lot until I no longer liked it a lot. It stumbles and falls the longer it's played. All of the frustrations mount until its welcome is worn out. ...

Review: ReCore

[Update: Here's a look at the massive "Definitive Edition" overhaul update that went live in September of 2017. This content is free for existing owners.] "Are those cores weighing you down," ReCore's antagonist asks toward the end of the g...

God I hope Recore is good

This  launch video cements it -- Recore is basically Tomb Raider with robots, as the leading lady Joule Adams is following in her father's footsteps, adventuring out in the wilderness to solve puzzles and engage in combat. And lik...

ReCore could've just as easily been named 'DeCore'

To some extent, ReCore's name makes sense. It's a game about restoring power by stashing new cores in currently power-less things. But, in a more minute-to-minute sense, it could've also been titled DeCore because getting those power s...

Rumor: Keiji Inafune's ReCore will launch this September

Based on a series of leaks from NeoGAF, it looks like information on ReCore has been revealed before more official notice from Microsoft in tomorrow's E3 conference (it's an exclusive, after all). Firstly, the official release date is Septe...

All that can be said about Mighty No. 9 has probably been said already. We've all lived it together. The multiple delays, the apologies, the rough social campaign -- we've seen it all. Now, we're just waiting for the actual releas...

Mighty No. 9 has gone gold, out in June

Is this it? Is it finally it? Comcept has claimed that Mighty No. 9 has finally gone gold and will drop on June 21, right after E3. Although the Vita and 3DS versions are coming later still, Comcept has promised no more delays are in sight,...

Are you getting antsy about Mighty No. 9?

Because it doesn't have the best track record at keeping its fans and backers up to date, the Mighty No. 9 project has once again started making waves across the internet. Based on a recent "no comment" response from Deep Silver regard...

Mighty No. 9 is a lesson for future Kickstarters

Well, Mighty No. 9 has been delayed. Again (Déjà Vu, right)! Even though the aforementioned headline stresses "again," it would be nearly indistinguishable from the past occurrences. So what's wrong this time? Well, "onli...
