Persona 5 will launch in Japan on September 15, same month as FFXV

After days of hype and months of waiting in general, Atlus held a Persona 5 livestream this morning. It involved a lot of teasing -- like, hours of teasing to be exact, but we did end up getting a worthwhile new trailer as well as a re...   read

Review: Arslan: The Warriors of Legend

Koei Tecmo is killing it in the beat-'em-up action space. While a lot of detractors erroneously claim that all Warriors games are "mindless button mashers," the studio has managed to keep the series interesting for nearly 16 years, par...   read

Review: Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel

I recently attended a tribute night at a local brewery, where musicians were invited to serenade patrons with songs from the '70s. Early on that evening, I glanced around the darkened beer hall to discover I was a few decades younger than m...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Awakening

It's still crazy to me that I'm loading up a Call of Duty DLC pack first on PlayStation 4. After years of Microsoft-dominated timed exclusivity Sony finally has its shot at heading it up, and it has perfect timing with Black Ops III. A...   read

Review: Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster

For whatever reason, I didn't end up completing Resident Evil Zero back when it was released in 2002 -- in fact, it took me 10 years to truly dive into it. I think it just flew under the radar, but thankfully Capcom has opted to remaster th...   read

Review: Amplitude

Before there was an abundance of rhythm games out there with plastic peripherals, there were developers like Harmonix leading the way with controller-based experiences. Along with some long sessions of Gitaroo Man and PaRappa, Frequenc...   read

Review: King's Quest: Rubble Without a Cause

The first episode of the newly minted King's Quest series really took me by surprise. While I had been loosely following it for years, I never expected it to be one of my favorite games of the year. The cast, the animation style, and t...   read

Review: The Bit.Trip

The Bit.Trip series holds a special place in my heart. With a wonderful blend of rhythm-based mechanics and arcade-style gameplay spanning various genres, the games are easy to pick up, quick to fall in love with, and yet incredibly difficu...   read

Dragon's Dogma runs wonderfully on PC

At some point, I downloaded Dragon's Dogma onto my PS3, but never got around to playing it. I'd scroll through and tell myself "some other day." Well, apparently that other day is the day it comes to PC. I hear tell that the framerate ...   read

Review: Tales of Zestiria

Very Quick Tips: Destiny's King's Fall raid

As previously mentioned, I think the King's Fall raid in Destiny is the best offering yet. It's clean, doesn't have very many bugs, and has a lot of variety within its walls. At this point I'm sitting on 15 clears, some for gear, some ...   read

Destiny's Taken King expansion alienates casual fans more than Year One did

Destiny has noticeably improved since The Taken King dropped. This is partly because there's a lot more to do than just grind the awful Prison of Elders activity from the last bad expansion, but additionally, the game has gotten m...   read

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below

Review: Transformers Devastation

Review: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5

I grew up with the Tony Hawk franchise -- at least, Neversoft's vision of it. Game after game, even some of the more questionable ones, held my interest until Proving Ground led the series astray. But in 2007, the studio was ...   read
