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...

Hard Corps: Uprising joins Xbox One backward compatibility

I figured with Microsoft already adding two games to the backward compatible list this week that we wouldn't see more. Not only have they added one of the best Contra games in a long time, but they also decided to include four other games. ...

Super Bombeman R runs so much better now

As much as Super Bomberman R missed the mark in some basic, fundamental ways, the developers have stuck with it, and I have to commend their post-launch support. The latest update is a big one, offering a much-smoother frame rate (if it isn...

Super Bomberman R will get a patch for 'control lag issues'

I wasn't holding out much hope that Super Bomberman R would see many updates, but it sounds like at least one important patch is on the way. Konami says it is "aware that some players are experiencing control lag issues" and that, better ye...
