There is no doubt that Capcom had a rocky launch of Street Fighter V. Its console release was limited, there were fewer characters, and there was almost no story to go along with it. In the course of over five years of development, they were able to make it one of the biggest fighting games in recent history, as well as add new content to it. With Street Fighter 6 being released, what type of comp...[Read More]
It’s been around four years since we got to spend time with Cal Kestis, BD-1, and the crew of the Mantis. Where did they end up? Well, that’s not for me to share as I want to avoid any kind of spoilers. Let’s just say, they all ended up where they fit perfectly and are surrounded by like-minded folk. But as with any good story, you can’t keep a good crew down. Now we take a look at Star Wars Jedi:...[Read More]
Samurai Jack is a cartoon series that comes in strong, ends, rests for a bit, then comes back every few years. That’s not a complaint as the series is amazing and one of the best-animated shows on cable when it airs. Its intense action and the incredible story still warrant a rewatch from time to time. For the uninitiated, Samurai Jack follows the tale of Jack, who is gifted a magical sword. The e...[Read More]
When you think of Kevin Smith and the words Jay and Silent Bob what’s the first thing you think of? Other than weed. Other than movies. Other than Bluntman and Chronic. That’s right: video games. Wait. You don’t think of video games when you hear those names? Well, maybe it’s time you should. Because in the rather INSANE year that is 2020, we’re getting not one, but possibly TWO video games with J...[Read More]
During my time at PAX West 2019, it was full of excitement, games, and so much more. While it was quite a busy time of seeing indie games and more. I got to head over to the Dot Emu booth to check out some titles that really caught my eye. As you can guess already by the title, those games were Streets of Rage 4 as well as Windjammers 2.
What’s better than plotting revenge against the teenagers who let you drown when you were a child because they were busy doing naughty things? Plotting revenge against the teenagers who let you drown when you were a child because they were doing naughty things, while on the go! Let’s dive feet first into Crystal Lake to check out Friday the 13th: The Game Ultimate Slasher Edition.
It’s no secret that I am a massive tech junkie. I have to check out the new tech, gadgets, or phones when they come out. I am also a home host. I run a monthly Fight Nights at my house where friends come over and we play fighting games on various systems. Even before getting the chance to review the Guardian XP Pro Personal Gaming Environment, GAEMS already had a huge presence in my house. Every F...[Read More]
As I’ve said before, we are in a new era of fighting games. This is not a bad thing as many of them are taking lessons from the past and are taking a more “back-to-basics” methodology. Samurai Shodown takes this way of thinking and drives it home in a pure, bloody, technical fashion.
I’m a pretty chubby dude. When I sit in a chair for more than an hour, my butt hurts, I can’t get my legs in a comfortable position, and generally, I start to get cranky. Gaming chairs are a unique thing for me, mostly because I play on consoles. This usually means that, for me, I’m gaming on my couch or in my bed. When we have friends over or when I stream, that’s a different story. That’s when I...[Read More]
I had only played a handful of arena fighters before this year. I do enjoy 3D fighters like Soul Calibur (I recently reviewed Soul Calibur VI) and Tekken, but arena fighters never quite clicked with me.Fast forward to the release of My Hero: One’s Justice, which is a 3D arena fighter based on the popular manga and anime series and I may have found one that I truly connect with. Does this title hit...[Read More]
Welcome back old friend. Trials Rising takes everything that was great about Trials, and presents it in a gorgeous, fuel-induced, tricked-out, non-stop fun fest that will have new and old players laughing, raging, and saying “Just one more time” over and over again.
Throughout gaming’s history there always seemed to be a need for a “console mascot.” Sega had Sonic and Nintendo had Mario. As more consoles entered the market it became clear that not every console needed a mascot, but that didn’t stop marketers from trying. Now I’m not saying that Crash Bandicoot was touted to be the PlayStation mascot, but it kind of felt like he was the PlayStation mascot. Whi...[Read More]
