There are two kinds of wrestling game fans…

There are two kinds of wrestling game fans. Those that have discovered the Fire Pro Wrestling games and those that have not. Doing so is a risky endeavor. It recolors your view of what gameplay, a roster and especially AI in a wrestling game is in such a way that you may never be able to go back to main stream wrestling games! If you know Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (the latest Fire Pro game from w...[Read More]

Holobunnies: Pause Cafe Review – IRL Yelling and Excitement May Occur

Holobunnies: Pause Cafe is a retro arcade game that serves up a small bundle of minigames made to be played with friends. Holobunnies thrives at being one of those games that’s made for local multiplayer as well as being a great time killer. The three game modes offer a brutal and unforgiving race for the high score, a boss rush with creative characters and a PvP arena for two “friends”.  As soon ...[Read More]

Wii U We Hardly Knew You – A Retrospective on Nintendo’s Underappreciated Console

Despite being one of Nintendo’s harshest critics in recent years, I can also say without flinching that I’m also one of Nintendo’s biggest fans. When I turned four years old, my very first videogame console was given to me by my grandmother and helped set me on the path of the man I am today. I remember my eyes lighting up the first time I played Super Mario Bros. on the NES all ...[Read More]

Mass Effect Andromeda is Basically Dragon Age Inquisition in Space

I’m going to start this little op-ed by saying I like Mass Effect: Andromeda so far. I’m about 2-3 hours in, and while the argument I pose here is probably salacious to some, I’m writing this because I feel like it’s going to be informative for your purchasing decision. In short? Mass Effect Andromeda is basically Dragon Age Inquisition in space. Mass Effect Andromeda is basically Dragon Age Inqui...[Read More]

NieR Automata Review in Progress

Burning up the sales charts in Japan last month NieR Automata was released in the west on the PS4 earlier this week and is due out on PC later this month. NieR is the latest role playing game from Square Enix and Platinum Games. NieR’s commercial success in the East is a nice change of pace for Platinum Games which has taken a beating lately due to their missteps with recent titles Star Fox Zero, ...[Read More]

Jumping Into the Age of Digital Dice

Let’s face it, the world isn’t slowing down anytime soon. A large majority of us have full-time jobs and are just trying to take it a day at a time, so we have an extremely small time-slot to game and can’t host all-night sessions like we used to. Life and complications get in the way and friends tend to drift apart. You might not have even had the opportunity to experience tabletop gaming growing...[Read More]

Our Nintendo Switch Review

Nintendo’s latest console is both amazing and puzzling, wonderful and frustrating. Clearly, the Nintendo Switch is filling a market gap – as an evolution of the Wii U, it’s essentially a really remarkable handheld console, with the added bonus of hooking up to your TV or monitor. It’s not as powerful as the Xbox One or PS4, but Nintendo got out of that arms race years ago. ...[Read More]

10 Things I Wish I Knew When Starting Ghost Recon Wildlands

When Ghost Recon Wildlands goes live late tonight on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, chances are millions of you will be rushing into the Bolivian wilds to wipe out the drug cartel known as Santa Blanca. In an open world game like this, you might think you know what to expect. After all, Ubisoft’s sort of perfected the formula over the years. But there are still some things we think you should be awa...[Read More]

Open Beta in Ghost Recon Wildlands – Torn Between Two Worlds

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon is special to me. It was my first experience with playing a game online. In many ways, it was the antithesis of what the FPS genre would devolve into. I spent as much time offline doing co-op in original Recon as I did online so naturally I’ve been waiting for Ghost Recon Wildlands with bated breath. I didn’t go into Wildlands expecting it to be on par with the origi...[Read More]

Our Hellion One Hour Review of Early Access

I’m not a person that suffers from anxiety chronically. I can usually be looked upon as a calm and collected person. So the first time I played Hellion, and was promptly sucked out of an airlock and into the void of space, with no way to save myself as I drifted further and further away until my oxygen ran out, I can admit to having a small panic attack. About twenty minutes of just trying t...[Read More]

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is Glorious Fan Fiction, and that’s OK

Even the nerd-troversial George Lucas knew when the enormousness that is Star Wars had indeed become “Too Big to Fail Geeks”.  Surely part of Star Wars’ sale to Disney was just Mr. Lucas saying, “F*ck this sh*t, I’m done.” But a larger part, I’d like to believe was the filmmaker’s own realization that a project he’d once made for himself had become something that belonged to no one and everyone. S...[Read More]
