South Park: The Fractured But Whole Review

The new South Park game is finally here! We had to wait extra long time for South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the sequel to the wonderfully hilarious RPG the Stick of Truth. So was it worth the wait? Does it live up to the hype? Is it funny? The answer to these and other questions is a resounding, “Eh, meh?” This our South Park: The Fractured But Whole review. Yes, much like the last and curren...[Read More]

Steep Road to the Olympics Preview

With the Pyeong Chang 2018 Winter Olympics just around the corner it makes sense that Ubisoft open-world winter sport sim, Steep would have something up their sleeve for the occasion. And they totally do in the form of the game’s next expansion Steep: Road to the Olympics. We got a chance to go hands-on with some of the new content to see how it’s shaping up. As you’d expect a lot of the new conte...[Read More]

This time around they look to blending even more classic JRPG styles together with their upcoming title, Lost Sphear. You’ll take on the role of Kanata, a young boy who lives in a world made out...[Read More]

Secret of Mana is more than a remake and we’ve played it

Okay, look, most of us (and by “us” I mean those fortunate enough to have been born in the SNES golden era and some very hip gamer kids) we all know the Secret of Mana is one of the greatest JRPGs of all time. And now fans new and old will get a chance to experience the remastered version. We got to check out a brief glimpse of what’s in store during my time at PAX. As implied, this is still very ...[Read More]

Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet takes the series in a whole new direction

For just about as long as the Sword Art Online anime series has existed, so has the steady stream of SAO video games also flowed like a river. It’s a very natural combination though. An anime show about people stuck in a VR MMO; it would be an insult if there wasn’t a library of games based off it. But up until this point, most have tried to emulate the MMO experience in more of a WoW/Action RPG h...[Read More]

I’m a Good Little Witch – Hands On With Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time

I must admit, I’ve only watched a few episodes of Little Witch Academia. And I’ve mostly only seen it because it’s on Netflix and a friend of mine recommended it. While I feel the show’s demographic probably skews quite a bit younger than me, I can still appreciate the quirky cuteness of it all. And I can definitely appreciate a good action-based RPG like Little Witch Academia: Chamber of Time aft...[Read More]

NBA Live’s The One Game Mode and James Harden as Cover Athlete

I must admit, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to sit down and play a basketball video game. Fortunately for me when I finally do get an opportunity to play some digital B-ball it’s the new and improved NBA Live ‘18. After taking a year off to reevaluate their gameplay strategy, the franchise is back to prove that it can learn from the past and improve upon its future. The NBA Live team sp...[Read More]

Our Hands On with NHL 18’s New Threes Game Mode

They say that three is a magic number. Or at least that one School House Rock song said it. But in the case of NHL 18 and its latest gameplay mode, which just happens to be called “Threes”, it’s never been truer. However, it’s not the only new feature for this year’s incarnation of the beloved hockey game franchise. The latest expansion team in the NHL, The Las Vegas Golden Knights will be making ...[Read More]

Razer Panthera Ready to Fill the MadCatz Void for PlayStation 4

For a while now fans of Razer’s Atrox for the Xbox 360/One have been hoping that they’d be able to get the same treatment for their PS4. Well, fortunately the wait is now over and the Razer Panthera has hit the market. And now that MadCatz is no longer in the picture, it looks like they’re in a great position to fill the void left behind, so to speak. There’s a lot to like about the Panthera and j...[Read More]

Lovecraftian Call of Cthulhu E3 Preview

It’s always perplexed me that there aren’t a ton of title that draw from the dark and cryptic works of H. P. Lovecraft. But, besides the Alone in the Dark series and a small handful of titles, there’s been very little direct Lovecraftian influence and the ancient ones.  Fortunately for fans of dark entities older than time itself that will one day devour the world the devs at Cyanide are taking an...[Read More]
