Review: SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays

To say it’s been a rough generation for Gundam games would be putting it lightly. Despite starting strong with SD Gundam G Generation Genesis and Gundam Breaker 3, every subsequent game seemed to get worse and worse. This was due to b...

Nintendo Download: Deponia Doomsday

In what is easily one of the most (understandably) barebones eShop release weeks to date, there's very few actual games being released on Switch, and none on other platforms. The highlight is easily the arrival of two more games in the ...

Nintendo Download: Star Fox 2

We've reached the end of the line. The December rush is over, and now we're getting a ton of shovelware as all of the really big games have come out already in the hopes of becoming Christmas presents. Smartly, a few of the really obscure g...

You can hear Nemesis speak in the Resident Evil 2 demo

Capcom planted a sneaky little Resident Evil 3 surprise in the newly-released Resident Evil 2 R.P.D. Demo. Maybe you'd rather save this for the full game in April, but if you want, you can hear Nemesis utter his classic "S.T.A.R.S." line. I...

Nintendo Download: Jamestown+

We've done it. We've reached the last batch of eShop releases before the end of the year, as only a few more indies are being pushed out after everyone already spent their holiday cash. Shovel Knight: King of Cards was the highlight la...

Nintendo Download: Shovel Knight: King of Cards

This is it, don't get scared now. 2019 is coming to an end. Oh no! At least we have a ton of amazing things lined up for 2020, as well as two new console launches (PS4/Scarlett). It's going to be a crazy year. For now, we have to wrap up th...

Import Review: SD Gundam G Generation Genesis

It feels like SD Gundam G Generation Genesis is forgotten sometimes. While it wasn’t the first of Namco’s licensed games to be translated in English for the Asia region – that honor goes to Gundam Breaker 3 and Super Robot...

Free DLC is coming to SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays

Nintendo Download: Trover Saves The Universe

We've officially reached the winter lull. Most of the big games that are going to be released in 2019 are out, with the exception of a few (on Switch, it's basically just Shovel Knight's last pair of expansions). There are a few notable add...

Nintendo Download: The Touryst

Nintendo kind of went all-out last week with Pokemon Sword and Shield, which are already selling incredibly well. As a result a little bit of a lull: a pre-holiday cooldown period, if you will, is in order. You see pretty much every major r...

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...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sword and Shield

This week all eyes are on Pokemon Sword & Shield, as actual hands-on gameplay will ultimately decide the fate of this generation: not leaks. Both games are arriving separately of course, but there's also a Double Pack, and the special S...

I had been looking for an excuse to cover Garden Story, a ripe little adventure RPG coming to Steam next year, and today I've got a great one: there's a limited-time demo from November 12 to December 21. The Autumn Town demo runs about hal...
