Pokemon Go loses over 10 million daily players

Pokemon Go made record profits in its first month, but the reason King sold for $6 billion, for example, wasn't Candy Crush's first month (a paltry $25 million earned to Go's $200 million), but sustained engagement.  After peaking 2-3 ...   read

Review: The King of Fighters XIV

While most people were introduced to fighters with Street Fighter, my first foray into the genre was King of Fighters at a local arcade. I had no prior training or guidance, I kind of just jumped in, picked Andy Bogard, and had a ball....   read

Permadeath in Fallout 4's Survival mode broke me

I've played a lot of Fallout 4. Too much if I'm being honest. Like a ratty old sweater, it's kind of comfortable in its familiarity, even if I know I should really just toss it out. But, for all the hours I've played, the multiple character...   read

That new Final Fantasy movie is out and apparently sucks

I'm not a Final Fantasy fan, and it sounds like many movie critics aren't either as Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is 'sitting pretty' with a nine percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That means it is tied with Adam Sandler's The Cobbler an...   read

Review: Metroid Prime: Federation Force

Next Level Games is in a good spot. Since 2014, it has just been working with Nintendo even though it's technically an independent developer. Despite having a history with low-key ports, it hit the big-time with 2009's Punch Out!!, as ...   read

Dead Rising 4 axes time limits

Dead Rising has always been a divisive series among gamers for one specific reason; it fostered a strict time limit. Instead of being given free reign over the game world, players were forced to complete tasks on time with harsh penalties f...   read

Pokemon Go bans are going out in full force, here's what the email looks like

Niantic is still really pissed that everyone is using third-party apps, and in addition to blowing a ton of them up, it has also been sending out mass ban emails, so check your inboxes if you're one of those impacted. The email essentially ...   read

No Man's Sky creator clarifies 'free DLC' comments

No Man's Sky, if anything, is starting to be remembered as a game that seemed to promise the world and gave us a little bit less (who didn't see this coming?). The latest shift comes by way of creator Sean Murray himself, who originally tal...   read

Konami begins work on killing Metal Gear with 'Metal Gear Survive'

There's another Metal Gear game on the way, and it of course won't feature the talents of Hideo Kojima. No, Konami is developing a "co-op stealth game" with "familiar Metal Gear themes," set for a 2017 release on PC, PS4 and Xbox ...   read

Internet compiles exhausting list of features 'missing' from No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky is hugely popular and, depending on who you ask, a neat Jules Verne-esque romp through space or an abject failure of procedurally-generated lies. I'm not sure where I sit because I admittedly got a bit bored and then got obse...   read
