Behold: Pokemon Sword and Shield's Gigantamax Snorlax

Pokemon Sword and Shield is just coming out of the gate, but is doing insanely well sales-wise. Game Freak is looking to keep that momentum going with regular updates, which, as we now know, includes regular raid events with extra forms. We...

The Elder Scrolls: Blades won't have chest timers on Switch

We aren't getting any Elder Scrolls on Nintendo Switch this year after all. Bethesda has pushed back its plans to bring The Elder Scrolls: Blades to Switch until "early 2020" as other matters – namely, "the most extensive update" yet ...

Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Sword is selling better than Shield

Anecdotally, there was an overwhelming amount of support for Pokemon Sword over Shield during the new generational reveal, and it seems like the sales data supports that. Breaking down the Japanese sales numbers even further, Dengeki O...

Review: Pokemon Sword

I don't envy Game Freak. It's a weird statement to make because for more than 20 years, the company has been part owner of one of the most successful video game franchises on the planet. Game Freak has guided Pokémon since ...

Review: Pokemon Shield

Another iteration of Pokémon is upon us, and now it's time for everyone to get really joyous or mad while cute creatures frolic on-screen. With the exception of the second generation (which many still herald as the best to date)...

I can't stop dilly-dallying in the Pokemon Wild Area

I'd be further into Pokémon Sword if only I could bring myself to leave the Wild Area. You know, maybe I'd even be done with the story by now. But, on the other hand, what's the harm in another bike ride? Just one more care-free stro...

The Outer Worlds now has a font size option

The Outer Worlds and Death Stranding are two games I'm very into right now, but they both contain lots of little words that can be a struggle to make out. I can't imagine what it's been like for folks playing on a responsible-human-sized TV...

Review: Disco Elysium

My first foray into the CRPG genre was the original Fallout. Yes, the Bethesda-era debut was called Fallout 3 for a reason, as Interplay and Black Isle Studios had been working their magic alongside of industry titans like (o...

The Kingdom Hearts III demo includes one of the best worlds

Is it possible to play Kingdom Hearts III with little to no context or history? Yes. I've done it! My first-timer experience was a total fever dream, to the point where I'm having a hard time accepting the fact that the game came out this y...

Wasteland 3 is unthawing in May 2020

A significant number of you want nothing to do with snow right now, but it's time to bundle up and watch a new trailer for Wasteland 3, the latest in a line of nuked-out role-playing games from inXile. Wasteland 3 is trading out Arizona's ...

Pillars of Eternity 3 won't happen without major changes

Obsidian isn't sure about the future of Pillars of Eternity. After the sequel failed to live up to the lofty expectations set by the original, Obsidian is left to believe that major structural changes are necessary if a third game is to be ...

There's still a glimmer of hope for Deep Down

In my imagination, Deep Down was an incredible dungeon-crawling RPG from Capcom. It came out on PlayStation 4 as originally intended, we all played it, we all loved it, the public discourse shifted a few months later to suddenly deem it "ov...
