Sitting back and watching the plethora of details roll in about arguably one of the biggest video game launches in the past few years is exciting from the angle of a journalist. More so as I count down the hours to order one for myself, with even more hype as I think about taking the Nintendo Switch with me to PAX East in March. So now the question lies, do I pick the Gray or Neon Nintendo Switch?
At the end of 2016 I found myself, along with over 6 million others, actually able to update my gaming setup with a PS4. So as a new PS4 owner I finally have my eye on what’s to come for the system. The system has plenty of games that I am especially stoked for. Here are my Top 10 Most Anticipated PS4 games as of January 2017!
2016 has been a year of ups and downs. Luckily for those into games, it has been mostly positive, with some of the most anticipated titles finally releasing and some surprises along the way. Here at Marooners’ Rock, we’ve been bringing some great content all year long. We’ve covered some awesome events like PAX East and got to spread the word of some underdog hits.
While we patiently wait for Uncharted 4’s story expansion, The Lost Legacy, Naughty Dog has made the wait less stressful by giving us the previously promised co-op Survival Mode. Uncharted 4 was my personal pick for Game of the Year and it’s a game that I have yet to get tired of. As long as Naughty Dog continues to give us free content and updates, this masterpiece of a game will cont...[Read More]
A few weeks back, I was sitting at home doing what I do best at the hands of my Playstation 4, when all of a sudden I get a message from my buddy Erik. Now, to preface this, Erik is the biggest Legend of Zelda fan I know, introducing me to the franchise as a tot when he brought over his copy of Link to the Past, complete with a big strategy guide filled with hints, secrets, and lore. It was a grea...[Read More]

We’ve gotten a very good glance at long-awaited upcoming system from Nintendo, the Nintendo Switch. During the reveal trailer, they seemingly announced (without officially announcing) multiple games, including a new Super Mario game, a new Mario Kart, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Remastered, and either a port or sequel to Splatoon, which is great and all.
I have to admit: I pre-ordered The Division. Pre-ordering is generally dumb, but I was so excited for the game that I wanted to dive right in. So I preloaded it, and stayed up until like four in the morning to get my first taste. Playing through the single player content with my friends was fun, despite the occasional glitch. The missions and side quests were fun and tense, the lore was absolutely...[Read More]

While most folks are warming up with pumpkin spice lattes to watch all manner of scary films, I usually key up some scary anime instead. Personally, I never did enjoy horror in film, aside from a few such as the nightmarish Alien, or the politically interesting Purge series. However, for some reason or another, I do enjoy horror in my anime, particularly ones with ridiculous amounts of violence an...[Read More]
Being my favorite game series, I have always looked forward to playing each new title. For each title is a piece of the puzzle that gets more and more convoluted, but more fleshed out. It is a fascinating conundrum. I was concerned for Kingdom Hearts 3 since I only have an Xbox One, but then they announced it for both consoles, so mission accomplished, right? No. Kingdom Hearts 2.8: Final Chapter ...[Read More]
I don’t think I’ve met someone who dislikes Jotun. While visiting Montreal, I had the opportunity to sit down and speak with William Dubé, the president and CEO of Thunder Lotus Games about being an indie developer, Kickstarter, and the way the gaming world has changed as a result of crowdfunding. The man has an infectious enthusiasm, especially about making powerful games that resonat...[Read More]
