Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim alights on Western PCs

I’ve mentioned before that Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim was my introduction to the Ys series and its perennial protagonist, Adol Christin. I played it on the PlayStation 2, though, where it had fully polygonal visuals and had been rebalanced from the Japanese, PC original. XSEED announced today, though, that they’re bringing the game to western PCs, more »

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 »

Let’s look at the Disney Infinity 2.0’s Loki

Let’s look at the Disney Infinity 2.0’s Loki This has been a rather momentous week for anyone keeping up with Disney Infinity 2.0. The last two figures were released, meaning the hunt is finally over. It’s done. No more waiting. The Avengers set is complete. And, one might say it’s a good way to go, 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 »

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 »

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is taking over Six Flags’ Goliath coaster on March 28

It seems 3DS and New 3DS weren’t enough for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Now the game is coming to Los Angeles, California to take over Six Flags Magic Mountain, and with it, the massive Goliath coaster. Beginning Saturday, March 28, the game will descend upon the park to, among other things, turn the Goliath into the famous MH4U boss, more »

How Republique Remastered and DmC got me hooked

I’ve been reviewing unusually brilliant games lately. I know that sounds cynical, but you have to understand that being assigned two A-quality games in a row is something of a unicorn in this industry, at least for me. Still, there’s no doubt I enjoyed playing and critiquing Camouflaj’s Republique: Remastered and Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive 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 »

Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition brings 5 playable characters

Devil May Cry 4 is following DmC: Devil May Cry‘s new-gen footsteps and will come to PS4, Xbox One and PC this summer as Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition. The digital-only release includes remastered visuals, bonus costumes and skins, and a medley of balance tweaks. More interestingly, DMC4SE will add three new characters to the game, on top of the more »

Final Fantasy XV preview: Episode Duscae has something to prove

There’s probably more at stake with Final Fantasy XV than we know. I have no doubt in my mind that getting playable proof of this game not being a disaster was priority number one for Square Enix as soon as Tetsuya Nomura was off the project, and slapping that demo onto a bizarre, but almost more »

Shelter 2 Price: $14.99 System(s): PC Release Date: March 9, 2015 Publisher (Developer): Might and Delight ESRB Rating: Not Rated If you’re not familiar with arthouse movies, then allow me to explain what they are. Arthouse movies are essentially movies that are made in order to make some artistic point. They’re not movies in the more »

Gravity Rush could come to PS4

You may remember Gravity Rush as the primary reason the Vita survived its first quarter. Kat was definitely Sony’s handheld poster child when the Vita released back in 2012, and it seems they’re now calling her to PlayStation 4. A South Korean games rating board recently listed a “Gravity Rush Remaster” for release on PS4 (thanks, NeoGAF). Sony has yet more »
