Greetings, weary traveler. Sit down, relax. Take a load off. Have a drink. I assume you’re here because you’d like to buy me something. I mean, that is why you’re here, right? You aren’t? You give me that damn drink back right now.
Earlier today, Red Fly Studio, a small development outfit based in Austin, TX, posted a number of videos showing prototypes for Wii ports of popular games released for last-generation consoles. This is the first time these prototypes have been made public.
The original Watch Dogs met with a fair deal of negative response from gamers and critics alike. While I greatly enjoyed it, I was in the minority. Ubisoft listened to both the complaints and the praise Watch Dogs received. Watch Dogs 2 isn’t just going to please fans of the original; it’s going to please everyone.
It looks like the rumors were right. Nintendo has finally pulled back the veil on their new console, now known as the Nintendo Switch. While some big questions were answered in the trailer, many more remain. Let’s take a look at what we know about Nintendo’s new baby.
The first Dragon Ball Xenoverse was a fun new take on the classic super fighting series. Xenoverse 2 aims to expand on that by adding more characters, stages, transformations and a new story that has you retracing the series’ historical fights. It mostly succeeds, but adds some new frustrations along the way.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is the best RPG on the Wii U.
Well, Mighty No. 9 is finally here. It’s a real thing, and I’ve finished it. The question most people are asking is, “is it worth it?” The thing is, I’m pretty sure you already know the answer to that question.
For the most part, the hype surrounding VR has confused me. Donning a doofy-looking headset and flailing around my living room seemed silly to me. The games looked ugly and uninteresting. I couldn’t wrap my head around why this was a thing. Then I finally tried it and now I can’t wait to have one in my home.
Shenmue III is a game many thought would never see the light of day; a costly casualty of Sega’s exit from the console business. At E3 2015, Yu Suzuki blew our minds by announcing the game we’d been waiting for. Kickstarter records were shattered, and the rest is history. That’s all good, but why should you care?
I’ve never been much of a mobile gamer. While my friends were hooked on Clash of Clans or Threes, I was happy ignoring the trend and playing my dedicated gaming consoles. So, why is it then that now I’m playing Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle any chance I get?
Senran Kagura Estival Versus marks the first time the traditionally portable series has made its way to a console. That is to say, everything’s brighter, clear, louder, and maybe a bit bouncier this time around.
On paper, the union of a farming game and an RPG might sound strange. In practice, the combo works unexpectedly well. Return to Popolocrois mixes the Story of Seasons franchise with Popolocrois’ unique setting to make something better than the sum of its parts.
Street Fighter V is carrying a lot of weight on its shoulders. It’s the follow-up to the wildly successful Street Fighter IV. It has to be distinctly different than its predecessor, yet familiar. It’s aiming to be the next big competitive fighter, and it seems poised to get there with ease. Yet, I still can’t shake…
In 2014, Naruto ended its successful 15-year run. But games? Those are going to keep coming as long as we all still love the blonde-haired ninja and his demon fox companion. Good for us, too: this new Naruto is easily the most comprehensive game yet.
Earlier today, Bandai Namco announced the sequel to Sword Art Online: Lost Song would be headed West. Earlier today, the publisher sent out the first screenshots of the game, which I’ve oh-so helpfully embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
Well, it finally happened. Nintendo has finally announced a port of Minecraft is headed to the Wii U. Two years ago this would have been a great idea. Today, it just sounds like a waste of time.
After 30 hours in Sword Art Online: Lost Song, I can safely say it’s the most surprising game I’ve played this year. I mean that in the best possible way, too. Lost Song is the game everyone wanted from the beginning.
Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, Phantasy Star Online and NiGHTS were all created by Yuji Naka, the man behind Rodea. All of those games were popular in the late ‘90s and early ‘00s. Rodea probably would have been, too. Too bad it’s 2015.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate has a lot riding on its shoulders. After the reception last year’s title, Assassin’s Creed Unity received, many felt the series’ reputation would live or die with Syndicate. Thankfully, Ubisoft not only delivered a good Assassin’s Creed game this year; they may have made the best one yet.
