Review: I Am Setsuna (Switch)

Last year, we saw the release of I Am Setsuna for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Much like one of Square Enix's other recent role-playing games, Bravely Default, it was an attempt by the publisher to provide an experience somewhat...   read

Let's watch a long-ass Prey gameplay video

Actually, that headline's kind of disingenuous. You see, I am intentionally not going to watch this long-ass Prey video. Still, I'm posting it without any sort of vetting process. There could be hardcore porn spliced right into t...   read

The Surge is doing its sci-fi action-RPG thing in May

"The Surge" isn't just something you'll find in a stuck-in-time pizza joint's soda fountain -- it's also an upcoming sci-fi action-RPG from Deck13. Has the studio learned some hard lessons from its 2014 release Lords of the Fallen? I'd sure...   read

Shenmue III progress update shows QTE testing

Remember "QTE Expert" from the You Arcade in Shenmue? You did play Shenmue didn't you? Not only did the game basically invent and focus on QTE's, but it even had a mini-game in the arcade that was about as literal a QTE as you can get,...   read

South Park: Fractured But Whole isn't coming to the Switch, despite tease

Three days ago the official South Park Twitter account posted a tweet that stated "Nin-ten-do. I'm coming. I'm coming, Nin-ten-do #blizzard2017," leading some to believe that it was a tease for a Switch version of the upcoming RPG South Par...   read

Someone already nabbed the reward for getting all 900 of Zelda's Korok seeds

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a huge game. There's a colossal conflict, a giant open world, a tremendous amount of side activity -- it's impressive in both its scale and scope. There's one task that stands out as significantly more daun...   read

Yoko Taro says he'll do a Drakengard remaster collection if Square Enix pays for it

Drakengard is a wonderful, weird series that thrust Yoko Taro, also known as "that guy that wears the moon on this head" into the limelight. He directed the first game and from there, was given a host of projects (in different capacities) t...   read

Mass Effect Andromeda's multiplayer gives me Mass Effect 3 flashbacks

As much as many of us weren't on board with the idea of multiplayer in a Mass Effect game, that aspect of Mass Effect 3 (aside from its oft-maligned integration with a certain "readiness" rating in the story) turned out surprisingly well. ...   read

Meet Jaal, a squadmate from one of Mass Effect: Andromeda's few new alien races

It seems as though a lot about Mass Effect: Andromeda will feel familiar. Even though there's an entire universe to draw from, the cast will be mostly the same. Humans, Turians, Salarians, Krogans, Asari -- those are the folks we can ...   read

Has-Been Heroes has a good premise, I just hope it follows through

Even though Nintendo has pushing it as a Switch exclusive, Frozenbyte's Has-Been Heroes is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One when it launches on March 28. As a concept, I really dig it. The idea is that you're playing as a bunch of schmu...   read

This is a $200 collector's edition for Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
