I never was super into the Pop! collectible figures. I love their look and how just about anything has been turned into a collectible, but I didn’t get into them as much as I did the Amiibo line of figures. However, my minuscule collection of Pop! has always been missing something. I’ve always been a huge fan of Tommy, the Green Power Ranger. So much so, that I went to Otakon in Baltim...[Read More]
Announced a while back was an adorable RPG coming to the PS4 and Vita that didn’t steal the show at E3, but it did steal some hearts. World of Final Fantasy has the general look and styling of Kindom Hearts, while adding chibi versions of classic Final Fantasy staples. Cutesy versions of Ifrit, Cloud, and Lightning will be joining the two heroes on October 25th in North America, with a Japan...[Read More]
Square Enix have been cranking out amazing remakes of their biggest franchises for a long time now. Ceasing that trend just wouldn’t fit their style. With fans waiting for anything related to last year’s bombshell drop that was the Final Fantasy VII Remake, it’s not surprising that another classic PS2 game is hitting the PS4 with an updated look. Final Fantasy XII is being remade...[Read More]
Wildlands is a mysterious game that had little details aside from an announcement that it was a thing. Ubisoft has been hard at work getting The Division up and running with constant support, so it’s understandable that Ghost Recon wasn’t on their minds as much, at least in the public space. Earlier today a new trailer for Wildlands launched with inspirational narration and a vibrant l...[Read More]
The internet has always gone hand and hand with pornography. All types of images, videos, and services are available at the touch of a button. One such site, Pornhub has been in the gaming news quite a bit here of late. Whether its streaming dirty bits to a 3DS or VR headsets supporting 360 degree ruts, the site seems to have their thumb on the pulse of the gaming world for good reason. Technology...[Read More]
We’ve been hearing the rumors for a few days now, but it is official. We now know that No Man’s Sky has been pushed back to come out on August 9th in the US based on Playstation’s website. This is disappointing news to fans, who were slated to have their hands on the exploration space game of dreams in just over a week. The rumors started with Gamestop employees being told to cov...[Read More]
Here of late it seems like I’m always playing one of two types of games, Metroidvania or dungeon crawler. Not sure how that keeps happening. . . The game up for review this time around, Ray Gigant, is a dungeon crawler with first person exploration mechanics similar to Etrian Odyssey or the game we recently reviewed, Stranger of Sword City. Where Ray Gigant differentiates is its hand drawn sprites...[Read More]
A promotional image has just swept through the internet, starting with Reddit (where all the leaks happen apparently) and being reported on by Kotaku. This image seems to be a direct reveal of the next expansion to one of the most over-hyped games of all time, Destiny. Only the image has been shown so far, but its assumed that Rise of Iron will be shown off at this year’s E3. Bungie should a...[Read More]
Not sure if this is any surprise, but I am obsessed with Dark Souls 3 and have been ever since its release. I’ve always loved the series and was even hesitant to pick up the latest one. Upon doing so I’ve spiraled into the pits of starry eyed fans, all eager for anything Miyazaki has touched. As I am wont to do during these times, I have been pursuing video content and journalism on ev...[Read More]
Trial by Viking is a stage-based platformer that has players jumping, throwing axes, and trying to find all of the sun stones in each stage. Upgrade abilities to tackle monsters from Norse myth, all with the goal of stopping Loki.
When the synopsis of Trial By Viking hit my inbox, I’ll admit that I was excited. After coming off the heels of Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse a few months ago and Axiom Verge after that, I was hungry for more Metroidvania style games. Trial By Viking is described to have Metroidvania elements in its marketing and store page, however this couldn’t be farther from the truth.
