What is your favorite Final Fantasy combat system?

The Final Fantasy VII remake is a perfect example of Square Enix’s core design philosophy when it comes to combat systems -- which is to say, there isn’t much of one. Sure, the series has its roots in “traditional” R...

What DLC do you wish was a new game instead?

One of my most anticipated releases in 2019 is not a new game, but a DLC expansion to Hollow Knight. As a part of its Kickstarter stretch goals, the acclaimed bug-em-up Metroidvania’s developers planned to create a side adventure star...

The west needs a Ganbare Goemon/Mystical Ninja collection

It wasn’t long after I had described Konami as collection adverse that it hit us with a trio of pretty awesome compilations. The Arcade, Castlevania, and Contra collection are all stacked with solid games. It’s actually an impre...

The name game: Moyse has dibs on Moze in Borderlands 3

You've seen the best, now see the rest. Everyone else is welcome to their hero choices, I've never known a siren to bring good news and the only decent robot ever is Paulie's sexy-talking droid from Rocky IV. When it comes to Gearbox' upcom...
