Pyramid Head has joined Super Bomberman R

Just last night I was thinking that it had been way too long since I last played Super Bomberman R, a decent game that has seen noticeable improvements since launch. Instead, I started Mad Max. But tonight will be different! With the new up...

Metal Gear Survive delayed into 2018

The Kojima-less team making Metal Gear Survive needs a bit more time to finish up the game so Konami is delaying the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 release until "early 2018." This is probably for the best. I just played the multiplayer component of...
