Project Scorpio – Ultimate Way to Play 360 Games?

Even though Forza looks incredible on the Scorpio, there was one bit of additional news shared on Eurogamer that I found super interesting. Microsoft is making sure to let people know that this new unit will play everything that is currently playable on Xbox One. Yes, that includes the hundreds of Xbox 360 titles that are backwards compatible. This new machine could be the best way to enjoy those ...[Read More]

Project Scorpio Details Revealed on Eurogamer

Revealed at last year’s E3, the latest console from Xbox was revealed to be dubbed Project Scorpio. This upgrade for the Xbox One platform was shown off in a pretty concept heavy trailer that talked in grandeur, but didn’t really pin down what the console actually was, what it does, or how it does it. Exclusively shared on Eurogamer, we finally have some specifications for the unit, on...[Read More]

Aven Colony Gets New “Survival” Trailer

Aven Colony proposes a slew of harsh environments, coaxing players to learn new strategies to ensure their civilization survives. Taking the elements of Sim City and adding in tons of alien troubles, Aven Colony looks to add some Dune to our city simulation games. Sprinkle in what looks like some tower defense elements and Aven Colony could be a strategy centered sleeper hit to look out for. To sh...[Read More]

Attack on Titan Season 2 Really Did Premiere Yesterday

Yesterday was a day filled with false news and funny jokes from just about every journalism outpost, as well as major companies. Among these bits of news, Crunchyroll touted that the long awaited second season of the hit anime Attack On Titan (also known as Shingeki No Kyojin) would be premiering on that same day of jokes. While I was extremely skeptical of this, I was surprised to find that later...[Read More]

Playstation Versa Handheld Console Announced

There were a ton of awesome things we got to see at PAX East and while there have been a ton of cool previews and news we’ve covered in the aftermath, there’s been something new leaked by those who had a better connection to Sony. I imagine this information was shared in confidence, but somebody, somewhere online has spilled the beans and I have to admit this could change the handheld ...[Read More]

Super Bomberman R (Switch) Review

It goes without saying that the Nintendo Switch launch line up was a bit dry other than the monumental success that was Breath of the Wild. Yet, there was another game that was a must have on day one for a lot of my retro gaming buddies, Super Bomberman R. Now, Bomberman has always been a series I have known about, but I didn’t really get into much other than playing it back in the day on th...[Read More]

Mothergunship Hands-On Impressions from PAX East

When I saw the trailer for Mothergunship, I was immediately reminded of Doom in the best of ways. This is what sparked me to set up a press appointment with the folks at Grip Digital and Terrible Posture Games to try it out. What I discovered was a crazy addictive, over the top, skill-based, rogue-like shooter that deserves way more attention.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch) Review

After spending most of this month obsessing over the latest entry into the massively loved Legend of Zelda series, I can no honestly give my thoughts about Breath of the Wild. This was the game that solidified my want of the Nintendo Switch, especially since I could take the experience wherever I happen to be. Zelda has been such a prominent piece of media in my life, one that sparked many friends...[Read More]

Quality Time with Square Enix at PAX East 2017

Ever since that faithful day in Elementary School, when my teacher gave us a glimpse of her obsession with a game called Final Fantasy VII, I’ve been a huge fan of Square Enix. I started with the PSOne classics, backtracking to the older releases and their remasters to the point that I quickly saw the series as a timeless collection. Before Final Fantasy X had launched, I was so well-versed ...[Read More]

Pato Box combines Punch Out with Mad World

While I was at PAX it was easy to get distracted due to the sheer amount of sensory overload. From the masses of people shuffling about in a current of sorts throughout the expo hall to the tall statues and displays that dominated the scene, there is just so much going on. While tracking down a particular booth, the crowd somehow coaxed me into a little corner of the show, where I saw a black and ...[Read More]

Spread of Impressive Titles from Merge Games at PAX East

One of the areas of the gaming world I am most interested in is the preservation of video game history. This leads me to pursue physical copies of games that did not receive the traditional retail treatment, which is what initially drew me to scheduling a meeting with Merge Games. Merge Games are probably most known for taking some of the best indie games around and giving them the ultimate physic...[Read More]
