Hardware Review: Fifine Ampligame H6 Gaming Headset

People don’t often consider gamers to be the kind of people who are also audiophiles. More often than not, the concern is more along the lines of “is the game fun” than it is “am I able to get theater quality audio from a gaming headset.” It shouldn’t be a surprise the focus is often

Hands-On: Beyond the Wire

If there was a “dad” version of any genre of gaming, it would absolutely be the “historically accurate FPS” side of the whole spectrum. Oftentimes, they revolve around World War I and II, though the focus tends to lean towards pivotal battles or specific battlefields that try to emulate the feel of the era they’re

Review: Sonic Origins

If there was any sort of competition for the most re-releases in popular media in comparison to the original Star Wars trilogy, the Genesis-era Sonic games are definitely up there. Hell, the fact that there have been multiple compilations since then signals to most gamers and even passing fans that SEGA knows how timeless the

Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge

You really had to be a certain age to fully understand the absolutely monstrous chokehold that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had on younger kids at the time. Since then, to a certain extent, many other IPs popular with their target audience have had a hard time replicating at the height of its popularity. Save

Review: Neptunia x SENRAN KAGURA: Ninja Wars [PC]

If you can believe it, there was a time when one IP crossing over with another was considered a rare event. While I’m showing my age with this statement alone, the scarcity of such a thing just lent itself to the excitement of experiencing the crossover in general. In comparison to the dearth of options

Review: Lost Judgment: The Kaito Files

I’ll be honest, I loved damn near everything about Lost Judgment. I’m pretty sure my review of the base game made that point glaringly obvious. With any game in the Yakuza franchise, it’s almost always packed to the gills with content. That reason alone usually deters the addition of new story content with each title,

Read Only Memories: Neurodiver Interview with Midboss’ Cade Peterson and John “JJ” James

Things sure have been busy at developer/publisher Midboss these days. We’ve been introduced to their cyberpunk world through 2064: Read Only Memories in recent years, and things are starting to expand with the upcoming release of Read Only Memories: Neurodiver. We recently covered the prologue/demo for the game, dubbed Pilot Memory, and also had the

Hands On: 30XX February 2022 Content Update

Surprise! Early Access games are often pegged as messy/buggy works in process, but sometimes you come across games like Batterystaple’s 30XX and the steady updates that it’s been receiving since it “dropped” on Steam a year ago. We got the chance to check it out around that time, and even in that state I felt

Review: Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream

You know, it’s really hard to call something niche when a series has been receiving regular entries for what’s now been decades. It may be hard to believe that the Atelier franchise as a whole has been a long standing presence reaching right back to the original PlayStation, but there’s something to be said about

Review: Windjammers 2

Some may accuse me of clinging to nostalgia, but I still think there’s still value in the formula of certain simplistic old school arcade game mechanics. There’s something appealing about the ability to quickly understand how to play and be able to hone your skills as you do so. I’m sure it’s also fun as

Review: Asteroids: Recharged

Early gaming has always fascinated me to some extent. Given that video gaming itself can largely be tracked to scientists goofing off on an oscilloscope to eventually grow into a lucrative and profitable economic mainstay is ridiculous feat in such a short amount of time. While they are merely a shadow of their former selves

Review: Final Fantasy V Pixel Remaster

Media preservation is a funny thing. Films, television and music have obviously been around a lot longer than video games have. Because of that, there’s a bit more reverence and concern for preserving the good and bad of everything for future generations to experience. Shift that focus to video games and that gets a little

Review: Bonito Days

Everyone likes a good simple party game, you know? Something where explaining the mechanics are super easy to break down and get right to the fun part can really do wonders to liven up a gathering. I’ve probably lost count of how many times I’ve proposed firing up a session of some Jackbox game during

Review: Lost Judgment

I think it’s pretty well known by now that SEGA is none too shy about how much they’re leaning into all aspects of the Yakuza franchise. Which is great, because lately the main franchise and now the Judgment side of things were supposed to have split off into two separate playstyles. Last year’s Yakuza: Like

Hands On: MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries – Legend of the Kestrel Lancers DLC

More content is good, yeah? It’s even better when you’re a fan of a franchise that hasn’t seen much action until a couple of years ago. Suffice it to say, we can add the BattleTech fanbase to an apparently lengthy list of folks getting the games that they’ve been wanting for years and being at

Review: No More Heroes III

Man, it sure has been a bit of a wait for some fresh and traditional Travis Touchdown action. Over a decade, to be precise. It hasn’t been completely devoid of his presence, what with multiple ports of the original two Wii games as well as a side entry in the form of Travis Strikes Again

Review: Fire Tonight

You know, seeing media set in eras that you’ve personally lived through (even at a very young age) is weird. On one hand, you’re already accustomed to many of the aesthetics and everything else surrounding it. On the other, it’s a window for those who haven’t actually lived through it. No matter how you slice

Hands On: Halo Infinite: Multiplayer Technical Preview

By now, I think it’s pretty obvious that people are putting a lot of expectations on Halo Infinite. Personally, I’m no stranger to this franchise’s multiplayer environment or the beta testing periods that preceded some of the prior titles. So you can imagine that I was pretty excited to be chosen to be in the

Hands On: Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X Nightmare

If you’re anything like me, you saw the release of Streets of Rage 4 as a wonderfully pleasant surprise in an apparent sea of new beat ’em ups (check out our review here). It’s no surprise that the devs behind this would want to expand the content through DLC, but the way that they’re approaching

Everything Announced at the Xbox/Bethesda Games Showcase

Microsoft came out dealing a slew of 30 games. To the surprise of nobody, 27 out of them are going to be on Game Pass day and date. Many of them exclusive to Xbox. Hey, they work. Here’s a rundown of everything that was announced. Starfield Touted as being “25 years in the making,” this
