Destiny has come a long way from it’s original release in 2014, settling into arguably one of the most divisive games in the industry. I remember playing the original beta and thought this would end up becoming one of the best games I’d ever get to play. Although we all know how the mixed reception of the game had been received upon release. Destiny was never considered a “bad game” by any means n...[Read More]
Last year, I wrote about an oddly satisfying hybrid of a game that I never thought imaginable: a rhythm rpg, or a RRPG if you will. The Metronomicon is now getting a console version with The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor. While it is just a port to the consoles, Puuba made sure to add a couple of perks to the mix to make it worthwhile. The important question: How does it stack up?
Back when the leaks started circulating from Laura Kate Dale, I laughed out loud at the absolute insanity of the idea, and yet here I am with the game in my hands and I couldn’t be more surprised. Rabbids, the aggravating little bunnies that arguably ruined the Rayman name on the Wii, so much so that the Rabbids franchise no longer touts the Rayman branding at all. Add in cartoons that felt ...[Read More]
Yakuza Kiwami is a complete remake of the original Yakuza, but also a sort of sequel to the recent prequel, Yakuza 0 (that was a mouthful). The original game was released over a decade ago in 2005, and has now been built from scratch with the Yakuza 0 engine. While remakes are going to implement a sense of nostalgia for fans of the original game, this remake also serves as a continuation to the fr...[Read More]
Hyper X/Kingston has been working on a lot of hardware, which ranges from ram, mice, keyboards and even headsets. At PAX East 2017 I had the chance to check out quite a few products in person, but one headset I got the chance to review was the Cloud Stinger. What is this headset? The HyperX Cloud Stinger is a Lower-end Gaming Headset that retails for $49.99. The real question though is, how good c...[Read More]
The year of 2017 is apparently determined to help me recreate my PS2 game collection on PS4. Particularly with the release of the Kingdom Hearts 1.5 + 2.5 Remix on PS4, Star Ocean: Till the End of Time as a PS2 Classic, and now Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. Final Fantasy XII was the first numbered Final Fantasy game I had played. Its world, story, and characters drew me in like few games had ...[Read More]
Growing up and being a young male kid I was very excited to have both Micro Machines and even Hot Wheels. One game I especially remember like it was just yesterday was the game Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament, which I played on MS-DOS. Yes, quite a while ago since that game was out in 1994. Fast forward to the year 2017 and the team at Codemasters is back with a new Micro Machines. Codemasters ...[Read More]
Gazillion Entertainment’s Marvel Heroes Omega finally made its way to PS4 and Xbox One at the end of June (having been on PC for years), and we jumped right in to this free-to-play action-RPG starring the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe.
Ever Oasis, developed by the wonderful folks at Grezzo who brought us the Nintendo 3DS remakes of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, is an endearing city (See: Oasis) building, dungeon crawling, Action-RPG for the Nintendo 3DS that, despite some repetition and questionable decisions, is a fantastic journey that always had me yearning for one…more…day.
Back when gaming was making its transition into 3D, one genre reigned supreme, the collectathon platformer. Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Ape Escape, and countless others. There was a joy and fascination in not just simply collecting all the things, but also the moment of “I can actually go here, that’s so cool!”. Eventually these types of games came less often. Which is a shame since these games...[Read More]
Ever since DC started making regularly released animated movies, there have been a few stories fans have hoped to see brought to life. The Judas Contract is one of these stories. Considered one of the pivotal Teen Titans stories that took the team from stories for a younger audience to a much more serious tone. Teen Titans: The Judas Contract after years of being added and taken off the release sc...[Read More]
Futurama really should have gotten more seasons. Even as the Simpsons train continues on with no end in sight, Futurama fans just count ourselves lucky that we got a few extra seasons courtesy of Comedy Central. Thus the announcement of a new Futurama game, one featuring much of the original voice cast and writes, came as a welcome surprise.
