Batman: The Telltale Series – Review

Welcome to the world of Gotham, a dark gritty city, plagued by crime. The golden age of Gotham has ended, and it is up to last heir of the Wayne family, to bring it back to its former glory. That being said, I’m sure everyone knows who Batman is. This adaptation of Telltale’s take on Batman, is marvelous. The grand scheme of the story line fulfills, the Batman franchise to the very core, and to my surprise the very first episode has fulfilled that criteria, only to have me hooked…

Monsters and Monocles – Quick Review

Monsters and Monocles – Quick Review

Monsters and Monocles is a promising Early Access game that takes the concepts of a top-down shooter such as Nuclear Throne and Enter the Gungeon but adds a bit of a Steampunk and paranormal theme to it. Story is pretty simple and basic, which I’m ok with. Some guy accidentally opens up a jar of evil and unleashes a bunch of purple-looking goo monster ghost thingies (I call it this myself, because why not?) It’s up to 4 Ghost Hunters to fight evil across the globe in various level backdrops…

This 3D tablet strongly resembles the rumored Nintendo NX console hybrid

This 3D tablet strongly resembles the rumored Nintendo NX console hybrid

In our past article on the Nintendo NX, there’s been some patents involving a detachable controller with a camera and an infrared sensor on the system. For a while now, the console is rumored to also be a console/handheld hybrid. @ZhugeEX from Twitter posted this tweet, “Is this the NX?”. Interesting enough this video was posted on Youtube in October of 2015. During that same year and month leaked NX news were already circulating around the internet during that time frame as well. It’s uncertain if this tech company stole this rumored Nintendo NX…

Hideo Kojima’s Twitter in 2013: “Want to make a genuine zombie game.”

Hideo Kojima’s Twitter in 2013: “Want to make a genuine zombie game.”

Just recently, a new Metal Gear game called “Metal Gear Survive” was recently announced at Gamescom 2016. And ever since Kojima and his team left Konami things have been pretty sour with his fans. I mean, who would play an MGS game without Kojima Productions? And don’t forget the signature political messages about Warfare, genetics, and the passing of information that Kojima likes to integrate in his games. And don’t forget that awesome MGS3 Pachinko machine that everyone was excited for! Haha.. Hah, right? Anyway, many hardcore MGS fans did…

5 Reasons Why I’m Glad No Man’s Sky Exists

5 Reasons Why I’m Glad No Man’s Sky Exists

I felt compelled to write down a few things about No Man’s Sky. With some mixed reviews circulating I wanted to share 5 things that made me happy that No Man’s Sky exists. 1. The wonderment of it all. The game is beautiful and at times breathtaking. It presents you with an endless sea of stars and planets to explore. Each one a variation on something you might have seen before, but that doesn’t subtract from the visual feast it provides. It’s not uber realistic, and it’s not trying to be. It’s like those old…

Jeff Checks Out the Titanfall 2 Open Pre-Alpha Tech Test

Jeff Checks Out the Titanfall 2 Open Pre-Alpha Tech Test

When Titanfall 2 was shown off at E3 this past year, a lot of people (including me) lost our collective minds. As someone who was a HUGE fan of the original game, the trailer for the next iteration of EA’s Call of Duty meets Hawken style game gave me pure joy and excitement. Now I can turn that excitement into actual hands-on time with it as EA and Respawn have announced what they are referring to as an “Open Pre-Alpha Tech Test”. So here is my hour long live stream archive…

Lovely Planet Arcade – Quick Review

Lovely Planet Arcade – Quick Review

Lovely Planet arcade is a spin-off series developed by QUICKTEQUILA and what most people would think of this game is some sort of a sequel. I guess you could say it’s a sequel, but the gameplay is a little bit different from it’s predecessor. For those of you who are not aware, the original Lovely Planet was a first-person perspective platform action game where you jump through obstacles and baddies and try to make the fastest time possible. Whereas this game requires more on precision shooting and collecting coins in…
