Hoyoverse has just released official character gameplay and lore trailers for the new upcoming Honkai Star Rail playable character, Sparkle. Lore wise, we’ve encountered her in the main story quest, and got a bit more exposure to the trickster in one of the side story quests. With the character trailer, however, the depth of her

When I saw the initial trailers and pictures for Palworld back in 2021, I and many others had a similar reaction: “This can’t be real. This has to be a troll or something.” After all, we had just seen creatures that looked eerily similar to Pokémon engaging in gun fights and slave labor assembly lines,
Hoyoverse has just announced a new character in Honkai Star Rail named Gallagher. “A security officer of the Bloodhound Family at Penacony. He is also a slovenly and indolent mixologist. Though unorganized in apparel and casual in how he makes his drinks, he is always courteous toward guests but keeps his vigilance about him. He
Square Enix has just updated the special site for Patch 6.55, Growing Light. The patch will include part two of Growing Light‘s Main Scenario Quests, the final ones for Endwalker. In these, an unexpected visitor arrives in Old Sharlyan, seeking for the Warrior of Light at the Baldesion Annex. In addition, it looks like Krile
“Steam from boiling waters percolates upon brows, as a light flame roasts to a backdrop of embroidered pillows and strands of luscious hair. In an oven does a letter crackle burn, its substance rich in mass, poor in emotion. With brushes come strokes, branches, and emerald waters. With a swipe of a finger she runs
Gaming can be a real adventure in and of itself. So many genres, themes, and styles to choose from, with different people having different needs they fill by gaming. And as a game reviewer, while I don’t like every genre or game style (and that’s fine), I’m doing this job for the benefit of others.
As the gamut of Metroidvania games continues to expand at an exponential rate, so too does the need for them to somehow delineate themselves from their contemporaries. Be it through unique game mechanics, a slick visual style, or quality of content, a certain je ne sais quoi is required to really engage the player in
HoYoverse has just officially announced the release of Black Swan for a future Honkai Star Rail patch cycle. This character announcement has generated a lot of excitement, as we’ve been teased to her presence as the narrator of many of the game’s previous promotional materials, going all the way back to some of the first
Out of all of the (probably too many at this point) games that I play, there are two genres that I always get excited for: rhythm games, and games that draw emotions out of my cold dead heart. One is a fun way to jam out to great music while testing my button pressings skills,
Way back in the late 90s, I had many a fond memory of playing Turok 1 and 2 on my N64. Naturally when they were remastered I had to pick them up, but I never did play Turok 3. Now it’s finally getting a remaster of it’s own, and it was finally time to see what I had been missing all these years.
There are a few types of games that will always grab my attention. Old-school CRPGs, games with retro aesthetics, stories with cute critters embarking on fantasy adventures… so it was inevitable that I’d take a look at Of Blades and Tails. Developed by Felix Laukel and published by Pineapple Works, Of Blades and Tails promised tactical turn-based action and exploration, but I just had to ready my sword, dust off my armor and see for myself how it held up.
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”
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
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,
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.
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.
It’s hard to deny the equalizing factor of the Jackbox Party Pack series. Regardless of the personalities of those present or overall friend dynamic, the games typically always feature some neat gimmicks that allow for just enough input to foster player creativity and generate a plethora of inside jokes. And infusing alcohol in the mix?
