NYCC 2014: Dragon Ball Xenoverse – Shaking up the status quo

on Wed, Oct 22, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

During last weekend’s amazing Comic Con I walked by Namco Bandai’s both, started to play Dragon Ball Xenoverse and expressed a sentiment many share. I loudly exclaimed, “How many times do I have to fight through the same story?” To my surprise, I was pulled over by someone on the PR team. “We’ve asked ourselves the same question, and this...

Hyrule Warriors (Wii U) Review – Zelda superfans, this is for you

on Tue, Oct 14, 2014 | By Stephanie Burdo

For starters, I would like to thank Nintendo America, Omega Force, Team Ninja, Koei Tecmo and lastly, Masaki Furusawa. For if it had not have been for you, Hyrule Warriors would have never existed and my life would be just a little less bright. With that being said, I think we all know where this review is going. Before opening my new copy of Hyrule Warriors, I made the biggest...

NYCC 2014: Gotham Rising panel shines a light on Batman’s future

Batman #35 Cover

It wouldn’t be a Comic Con without a Batman panel, especially during the Caped Crusaders 75th Anniversary. The Gotham Rising panel didn’t disappoint, but failed to stick the landing. It was a rollercoaster with its ups and downs. The Batman and DC team had a strong showing, although it wasn’t met with enthusiasm by the crowd during the Batgirl and Gotham Academy...

NYCC 2014: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate aims high, leaps forward

Brave new world.
on Sun, Oct 12, 2014 | By Tim Torres

I spent a good 45 minutes playing the Monster Hunter Ultimate 4 demo at New York Comic Con this year. It looks and plays great, offers slight new innovations for the series and left me wanting more. Seasoned hunters will feel at home. While there are no big changes to the controls, the terrain is hillier and there are more ledges. In past games, you had to press a button to...

NYCC 2014: Resident Evil Revelations 2 may damn or redeem series

Revelations 2
on Sat, Oct 11, 2014 | By Tim Torres

Capcom offered a bite-sized taste of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PlayStation 4 at New York Comic Con this year. And I mean bite-sized. The demo barely lasted ten minutes but it granted a feel for the controls and hinted at what’s to come in this new, episodic game. It opened in medias res with Claire Redfield and Moira Burton stuck in a prison facility. A mission...

NYCC 2014: Capcom shows more of the same, fails to impress

Monster Hunter Ultimate 4
on Fri, Oct 10, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Capcom had a huge panel to show off its latest offerings at Comic Con. Sadly, there wasn’t much of anything new to show besides a ton of new Monster Hunter Ultimate 4 reveals. Besides that it was standard promotions of games we already knew about.  Monster Hunter Ultimate 4 looks to be the largest Monster Hunter game ever put together by Capcom to date. The panel started...
