Earlier today, Xbox Austria published a photo revealing the Games with Gold for April 2017 offer before Major Nelson made the official announcement. At the moment it is uncertain whether or not Xbox Austria’s publication of Games with Gold offer for April 2017 was accidental or if they got permission from someone higher up, only Xbox knows the answer.
Lego games have always been a staple of gaming in my house. They are so popular that my wife got her mom playing them. She’s much more thorough than I am. She has no problem attempting to get that 100% in a Lego Game. Me? I just don’t have the time. That being said there are games that have come out that I don’t need to dedicate a bunch of time to if I don’t want to. Minecraft is a great example o...[Read More]
A few weeks back, I covered the announcement of Snake Pass coming to Switch. Even then, I could tell that this would be a game right up my alley, so I jumped at the chance for a demo at PAX East. For this demo, I played the Nintendo Switch version using the Joy-Con Grip controller, while others played the other platforms around me. Sitting next to me through the entire demonstration was none other...[Read More]
Last year at PAX East, one of my favorite games of the show was a rhythm hell violence game called Thumper. This show favorite carried over to one of my favorite full titles of the year, where I couldn’t put the game down while reviewing it. My only qualm was that it was for PC, and my gaming laptop couldn’t run it perfectly. (Yes I know it is also out for PS4, but I don’t have one.) This Spring, ...[Read More]
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, the sequel to 2014’s fantastic Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, has a new 16-minute gameplay walkthrough. This first look at gameplay showcases the changes and improvements that will expand the breadth of the game and the famed Nemesis System. In Shadow of Mordor, the focus of the Nemesis System was mostly on enemies and revenge, whereas this iteration seems to bu...[Read More]
Full disclosure, I am going to spoil the crap out of the entire Mass Effect franchise to date. If you’re not cool with that, I can totally understand that. Here’s the TL;DR though, I love Mass Effect like some people love Shakespeare. It’s probably the most important piece of art that I have ever experienced.
If you’re an old-school Xbox player like I am then you remember Voodoo Vince. The lovable voodoo doll who put his own body on the line when he needed to. When the announcement that Voodoo Vince was getting a remastered version I was thrilled! A lot of people never got to experience Vince’s puzzle-platforming antics from the original Xbox. Well that time has come.
The skeleton mob caved my hero’s skull in, ending my adventure on the third, of ten, level of the Necropolis. The time before that, I’d made it to the to the second floor. The time after, my heroine barely made it out the doors of the central starting area before being ambushed by a mob of six. This was Necropolis, Brutal Edition, Harebrained Scheme’s unique procedurally generated third-person dun...[Read More]
Well, we now know for sure that Target’s leak of a Shadow of Mordor sequel is 100% true! WBGames has released a full cinematic trailer for their sequel. The epic 2 minute trailer reveals that Talion is still the game’s protagonist, as he is creating a ring with Celebrimbor to defeat Sauron once and for all. As the trailer then shows armies of Uruk being prepared, it seems a war is comi...[Read More]
What can be said about the Power Rangers franchise? Equal parts campy fun, insane martial arts, and giant robot action, it’s a long-running favorite of both kids and those who grew up with it. Nowadays, the series is getting noticed again with an upcoming feature film and part of the hype is this little downloadable title. Is Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: Mega Battle truly morphenomin...[Read More]
One of my favorite games from last year is getting a slick updated version for Consoles. That’s right, The Metronomicon: Slay the Dance Floor will be coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. No official date has been announced, but some details have been slipped to us by the lovely folks over at Puuba.
Ghost Recon: Wildlands is due out in almost two weeks. While we got to get our hands dirty a couple weeks ago in the Closed Beta, a lot of us have been itching to visit Bolivia again. Good thing the Open Beta is drawing near, and Ubisoft has announced what time the Beta goes live.
