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

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

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
