The Mass Effect 5 Teaser: Key Takeaways and Speculation

And let’s not forget the sheer silliness that infected anyone who played it with a good laugh. It was a game that few could hate … Continue reading Fable 4: Are They Making a Huge Mistake?

Why should I be excited for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity?

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not unexcited about Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. I’m just not $60 excited. Whenever Nintendo announces a new Legend of Zelda game, it’s a big deal. I mean, it’s a huuuuge deal! Nintendo’s treatment of the Zelda franchise differs wildly from that of Super Mario. While Mario only gets a major release a few times (at most) per console, he also gets … Continue reading Why should I be excited for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity?

Here’s Why Your Friends Are Flocking Back to World of Warcraft This Week

Are fewer people streaming Fall Guys? Are you lacking some “sus” people in Among Us? There’s a reason for it. World of Warcraft is back, baby. Kinda. Sorta.  But it’s enough to make people ask where their gamer friends have been and why they’re logging into a game that’s old enough to legally drive.  Like many others, I went to log into my WoW character … Continue reading Here’s Why Your Friends Are Flocking Back to World of Warcraft This Week

The World of Warcraft: Shadowlands beta is here, and that means we are staring down the barrel of a new expansion. Now that Battle for Azeroth is waning (to put it nicely) and so much new information about the next expansion has emerged, I’m starting to feel very excited.  While some people might not be so excited about this expansion, I am completely ready for … Continue reading Why I’m Recklessly Optimistic About World of Warcraft: Shadowlands (You Should Be Too)

"The Messenger" Devs crush Kickstarter with a new JRPG

As of this writing, it’s not too late to pledge to Sea of Stars and help unlock all the stretch goals. The indie games market may be saturated with pixel-art games, and some of them are very well done. But they mostly exist in the realm of the “roguelike Metroidvania.” Which is a fine world, I suppose. But it doesn’t seem like that many indie … Continue reading "The Messenger" Devs crush Kickstarter with a new JRPG
