Turns out Gladiolus isn't just some crazy name, it's a flower! Naming a buff dude after a flower may be ironic, but you can learn more about this ripped flower on March 28 even if you didn't buy the season pass. Episode Gladiolus will ...   read

Here's what The Elder Scrolls Online's take on Morrowind looks like

The Elder Scrolls is venturing back to Vvardenfell for the first time since 2002. Well, you could technically see it off in the distance in Skyrim, but that's not a proper visit. Flying over Wyoming doesn't mean you've been to Wyoming...   read

Double Fine picks up Ooblets, a real cute game about farming and creature collecting

Ooblets... Ooblets. Where do I know that name from? Ah, right! It was listed among Patrick's top 42 indie games to watch for in 2017 where he alluringly summed it up as "Pokémon meets Harvest Moon." In the game, you'll raise and batt...   read

Persona 5 still knows how to keep it weird in the Velvet Room

The Velvet Room is probably one of my favorite recurring elements in recent Persona games. Even if they have their own casts and distinct styles, I love having that one strange location to return to that ties it all together. In case y...   read

Go grab some free NieR: Automata PS4 themes with your Japanese PSN account

NieR: Automata is coming. Right in the middle of a brand new console launch, a new Zelda game, and off the heels of another open world game in the form of Horizon Zero Dawn. It's...a rough launch to say the least. Based on my time with...   read

Final Fantasy VII Remake voice acting 'nearly complete'

Oh right, modern games have voice acting. For whatever reason it didn't hit me that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will be fully voiced, but of course it will. That voice acting is nearly complete according to Producer Yoshinori Kitase, ...   read

8-4 won't be handling Xenoblade Chronicles 2's localization

It's a bit weird for me that we're getting a new Xenoblade Chronicles game in the first year of the Nintendo Switch. Barring any unforeseen delays, we'll be returning to this wonderfully expansive sci-fi world once more before the end of 20...   read

Review: Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn came out of nothingness and delighted thousands. Born on a lark as the "most risky" concept from a Guerilla Games pitch session, the aesthetic of meshing tribal warfare with high-tech creatures is intriguing all on its own...   read

Finally some new screenshots of Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake

It's been a good while since we've heard or seen anything regarding these titles, but Tetsuya Nomura, who is directing both games, is determined to show what he can. While he was not given permission to show video, he brought a couple scree...   read

Here's an in-depth look at Mass Effect: Andromeda's combat system

This space conflict isn't getting resolved without a space firefight. Or, more accurately, many space firefights. Mass Effect: Andromeda labels you as the Pathfinder and that sounds peaceful enough, but every path through this game se...   read

Apparently the Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo unlock a new dungeon

Nintendo loves to be mysterious. Even just several weeks away from the launch of the Switch there's still so many unknowns, and one of their favorite things to do is announce peripherals but not give any specifics. That includes amiibo...   read

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix title screen is a time sink dream come true

I'm thinking back to when I beat every single one of these Kingdom Hearts games pictured below, and all that comes to mind is multi-day marathons. Whether it was a winter break from school or a pizza-ridden dorm-fest, playing nearly every m...   read

Here's a way to farm gold in Nioh that's fast, easy, and lucrative

If there's one thing I could use more of in Nioh, it's gold. Gold is where it's at. It's true that you can play normally and boost your gold-grabbing efforts with stat-boosting equipment, your choice in guardian, or the achievement-esque t...   read

Path of Exile's Fall of Oriath update has me wanting to reinstall the game

I'll readily admit that I bounced off of Path of Exile when I first tried it in 2013. I played it when it was in open beta, and the overwhelming skill tree and muddy aesthetic didn't gel with me, so I shelved it. After playing a preview of ...   read

I created a black character in Trio of Towns. What happened next will shock you

I am several hours in the deliberately slow and joyful beginning of Story of Season: Trio of Towns, and while I’m having a pleasant time with the game, there is one oddity that continues to stick out like a sore thumb. As with previou...   read

Fire Emblem Echoes will only have English voiceovers

Following in the footsteps of Fire Emblem Fates, the upcoming Echoes (a remake of the second game) will also only provide English voiceovers. It's a tad different from the Fates situation, mind. For that game not only was the pros...   read

NieR: Automata is a lot more involved than I initially thought

The first NieR: Automata demo I played (which was subsequently open to the public) was a way for Platinum to showcase its action prowess. It mostly centered on combat, and barely any time was spent idling away in menus. A new preview build ...   read

Review: Dynasty Warriors Godseekers
