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.

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.

While they mostly deal in PC games, mobile and console games, books, comics, and movies have been featured. Over the years, many larger companies have been all...[Read More]
Surprised? Me neither, but good news besides. With a lot of funding riding on the upcoming Final Fantasy XV this September, Square Enix had to make some ground in other ways. Out of all the development teams out there, Square Enix has effectively capitalized on the mobile gaming market, albeit their software is usually a bit too expensive. Just last month, a new entry into the long running and bel...[Read More]
