Prey Is NOT About a Native American in Space

Did anyone even play Prey? The one that was released in 2006 was a fairly average first person shooter starring a Native American, similar to in how Turok played around with weapon archetypes, but didn’t really stand the test of time as a memorable shooter. At least, not the point that it became THE game to have like others of the time. Now, the story of the newest Prey which is being publis...[Read More]

Nintendo Power Archive Offers Over a Hundred Issues

Video game history is a bit of a hobby of mine, in which I sometimes enjoy diving deep into the biographies of big developers and their stories. Just last year, I picked up Masters of Doom to learn John Romero and John Carmacks’ interesting tale. The problem with being into video game history is there isn’t nearly the plethora of written content available like there is for other histor...[Read More]

Pokemon Go Plus Accessory Delayed

While the device was set to release at the end of July, the Pokemon Go Plus accessory will now be shooting for September. As unfortunate as this is for wannabe Pokemon Masters, this move is likely an attempt to meet demand and ensure the product holds up to Nintendo’s standards. Nintendo themselves broke the unfortunate news this morning on their Twitter account.

Monster Hunter Generations

Monster Hunter Generations continues the trend Capcom set long ago, making this entry another solid portable title that improves on the formula in various ways. Tons of epic new monsters to fight, plus many more ways to customize a hunter, makes Generations one of the most complex Monster Hunter games to date!

PokeVision Provides Pokemon Locations in Real Time for Pokemon GO Trainers

Man, Pokemon Go sure is popular. In fact, I lose contact to many of friends at random, only to find them wandering the streets in search of Dragonite or Charizard. I’ll admit I’ve ignored house work to galumph through the streets to stock up on items and challenge gyms. The game is a phenomenon that has consumed not only the world, but my community as well. It’s gotten to the poi...[Read More]

While Capcom may have missed the mark with the past few Resident Evil games, focusing instead on remakes and re-releases, and there hasn’t been a new Megaman game in quite some time, there is one franchise that Capcom continues to shine with, Monster Hunter. Monster Hunter is essentially a game of boss fights in which the player is sorely outmatched as the creatures are massive forces of nat...[Read More]

At the time, I wrote for a different magazine and offered to do a review. I was intrigued at the idea of glasses that reduced strain, but vowed to not support anything I didn’t enjoy using, so I set out to do the review first. After buying a pair myself, for t...[Read More]
