When Jason Schreier initially broke the news about the recent layoffs at Bungie at the end of October, he also reported that Destiny 2‘s next DLC – and the culmination of the series’ ongoing ten year saga – The Final Shape would be delayed to June. Today, we got the official confirmation from Bungie. In
Not too long ago, I covered a then-recently released RIG headset, the 600 PRO HS. One of the cheaper items in the product line, it was pretty good, but a step back from some of their past models. Now, as we approach the holidays, I had the opportunity to look at Nacon’s highest end headset:
Riot Games has just announced the release of a new champion in League of Legends: Hwei. Much like Jhin, this champion’s lore thematics are very centered around a violent manifestation of art. Similar to Aphelios, this champion relies on combinations to manifest a very wide array of abilities. Even though League always follows the “QWER”
I enjoy quite a few games that focus and depend on User Generated Content (UGC), most prominently among them Super Mario Maker and its sequel, which took a known and loved franchise where many of us probably came up with our own ideas for levels in our dreams, and made the whole game about creating
The Chinese indie publisher 663 Games announced today their first global release game: Realm of Ink, developed in cooperation between Leap Studios and Maple Leaf Studio. Players will begin their isometric journey through the ink-style game as the sword-wielding Red on her quest to slay a Fox Demon. Through her journey, Red eventually realizes she
Like many folks in the fandom, the arrival of Yakuza 6: The Song of Life seemed to signal the end of the story arc for one Kazuma Kiryu. Since then, the franchise as a whole has been far from dormant. We were introduced to Ichiban Kasuga in Yakuza: Like a Dragon in the main series.
Nothing beats getting stuck into a great metroidvania. The non-linear exploration, the progression of new abilities, challenging boss fights—when prepared properly, all of these elements confect one of gaming’s most satisfying, addicting experiences. The appreciation I have for this genre is on my mind with every metroidvania I play, but it’s especially true for those
There is a recurring theme for me in taking reviews for games that are spinoffs of series I know nothing about. Yohane the Parhelion: BLAZE in the DEEPBLUE, aside from having the probably most overwritten title I will see all year in my review queue (it has very little time left in the year to
So, hey, that game Hades is pretty good, huh? Like, everyone liked it. Don’t pretend you don’t know that’s why we have a nice big rush of games that are cashing in on the whole roguelike thing. You know it, I know it, a variety of stray cats know it. And most of them are…
The year is wrapping up quickly and with the Golden Joysticks Awards merely two days gone, the next awards ceremony is already on the horizon. Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards announced the nominees for the 31 fan-voted categories today. Unsurprisingly, Larian Studio’s Baldur’s Gate 3 is again a hot contender with eight nominations by itself.
Hoyoverse has just announced details for some of the content coming with Honkai Star Rail’s Version 1.5. The central content for the patch is a continuation of the Main Story, with the quest being titled “A Foxian Tale of the Haunted.” The short description from Hoyoverse is as follows: “With the Creation Furnace having burst
Hoyoverse recently announced the new limited five-star character that is getting released alongside Version 1.5 – Huohuo! Huohuo is a five-star wind abundance character, with a playstyle focused around buffing and cleansing debuffs from her allies while healing them. Her character trailer showcases her clumsy and forever-spooked personality. In terms of gameplay, here’s a condensed,
Does anyone remember playing those old Nancy Drew mystery games for Windows? The thrill of solving a mystery? The daunting task of investigating suspects and poking around for clues? I used to *love* them and have to admit that I end up comparing every mystery game I play to them in some way or another. However,
With the calendar year coming to its close, game award season is upon us. The Golden Joystick Awards started us off today, with a number of Final Fantasy entries being among the winners. Final Fantasy XVI won in two categories, first of which going to Ben Starr, voice actor for lead protagonist Clive Rosfield, taking
Sometimes my reviews require a fair number of caveats. That’s just good practice, in my mind. It’s a good thing to make it clear if you are predisposed to not particularly like a game or predisposed to like it, that sets out a baseline. If I say that I wasn’t really inclined to like something
HoYoverse has just announced three new Honkai Star Rail playable characters for a patch after Patch 1.5. The first character is a Five-star Ice Harmony Character, Ruan Mei. For many of us, we’ve encountered her in the form of a very powerful Simulated Universe Blessing. From in-game lore, we know she is part of the
A couple months have gone by since I had the opportunity to preview Jusant, the latest release from developer Don’t Nod. The demo wasn’t a complete homerun, particularly when it came to the more straightforward elements of its storytelling, but I left the experience heavily enticed by the game’s beat-by-beat climbing gameplay and unique atmosphere.
Sanrio is a company that, in many respects, requires no introduction. You would be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t at least have vague knowledge of the existence of Hello Kitty, the company’s most popular marketing mascot. This goes double if said person was around throughout the 1990s, when the character had a particular
There was a time – and I remember it quite well – when not every single type of game got stapled to an RPG. I don’t even feel like it was all that long ago. It’s not as if no one loved RPGs or anything, but it was a reality that it was something of
World of Horror is something I honestly had thought was already out. I have a number of friends really into horror, and I heard nothing but good things about it back when it first entered early access. Surely this was an already finished game, I thought. Apparently despite how good it already was, there were still more the team wanted to add. Now I had a chance to sit down with the finished product and see if it was really worth all the hype.
