Feast your eyes on Disney Infinity 2.0’s Falcon

All of the Avengers can finally assemble in Disney Infinity 2.0. I guess he had some things to take care of, maybe he was roosting, but that doesn’t matter. Falcon is here now and we’re glad of it. The group is complete and ready to be enjoyed. Besides, we can forgive a little tardiness when more »

Story of Seasons preview diary 3: Finding a routine

One of the most important things about any Bokujou Monogatari/Harvest Moon games is getting settled into a routine. It’s the key to success.

Within 3 days, I had a Story of Seasons pattern that more »

Okay? is the next Desert Golfing

Last year, we ended up getting this great time sink for Android and iOS devices called Desert Golfing. It was great, as you’d endlessly hit a golf ball towards a hole on a sandy golf course, relying on proper angles to reach the goal. Now, earlier this month, we’ve gotten what seems to be its more »

Gen Con warns Indiana governor over controversial religion bill

On March 23, 2015, the CEO of Gen Con sent a letter (PDF) to Indiana governor Mike Pence, asking him not to sign SB 101, a law that would implement the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) into Indiana state law.

Warlocks preview: Character choice actually matters

I’m not a huge fan of beat ‘em up games, but I do like the occasional Turtles In Time. That said, one of the things I’m used to when it comes to beat ‘em ups is that the choice of character doesn’t really matter. Sure, different characters will sometimes have different attacks, but the gameplay more »

These 3 Toad Amiibo mods are the best

Yes, we’re really doing this now. I’m sorry. The various Toad Amiibo mods that have come out in the past few days since the Mario Party 10 NFC figure releases are too good.

Story of Seasons preview diary 2: A Home of one’s own

In most Bokujou Monogatari/Harvest Moon games, players begin with a farm that’s a less than ideal living space. After all, you’re inheriting something that no one has manned for years or only starting a new life. Story of Seasons follows this trend, but there’s a significant difference. A player isn’t stuck with the worst lot more »

Beast of Burden: How Evolve became 2015’s biggest disappointment

Evolve was impressive enough that Take-Two paid more than $10 million for it in THQ’s bankruptcy auction. It won four critic awards at E3 2014, including Game of Show. But Cowen and Company analyst Doug Creutz estimates it has moved only 300,000 units, and will peak at 1.5 million sold. There are only around 5,000 people more »

The rumored Batman Arkham Asylum and City remakes are stupid

Apparently, there’s a rumor going around that Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City are going to get a remaster. I have no idea if the rumor is true or not, but with The Last Of Us Remastered making half of all the money, it wouldn’t surprise me. Here’s the problem, though. Those games are more »

Cities Skylines reminds me that I suck at sim games

How do I city? I mean, seriously. I’ve read plenty of beginner’s guides relating to Cities Skylines, and I still haven’t figured it out. The glory of Cities Skylines is that it tosses you into the deep end immediately. There are a few tutorials that will pop up when you first encounter a new section more »
