For the longest time, I have wanted to purchase the Nintendo Wii U for the following games: Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros., and Hyrule Warriors. After almost two years of hesitation, I finally picked one up for myself. There were two major things holding me back from making my purchase. First, I knew that I could put that $300 toward an Xbox One which I would probably use...

Func KB-460 MX Blue Switch (Review) – The best damned keyboard, period

A handy, removable wrist rest.

We’ve got our hands and nimble fingers on our first mechanical keyboard in our test lab and it has left one of the best impressions any PC peripheral ever has. The Func KB-460 with MX Blue switches is simple, sleek, stylish, and extremely reliable. It has become my everyday keyboard and has blown the competition away, an impressive feat on its own. But enough gushing...

Horrible controls and single-player made Resident Evil scary

For a 3DS game this sure packed some serious scares.
on Tue, Jul 29, 2014 | By Eric Guzman

Resident Evil, contrary to what you’ll read here, is a series dear to me. I love the franchise and its outlandish lore that happens to pit zombies in the middle of all the human melodrama. I’ve even enjoyed the more recent and fan despised entries. We’ve seen Capcom make several mishaps with the series in regards to plot, character development. But it’s...

No Man’s Sky: Will it live up to its god-like potential?

First announced at VGX 2013 and later debuted at Sony’s E3 2014 press conference, No Man’s Sky has spread through the gaming community like wildfire. For the first time in gaming history, players will be able to become the virtual Neil Armstrong of the modern age by exploring infinite galaxies within an ever-growing universe.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War (PS4) Review – Respect

on Thu, Jul 24, 2014 | By Elan Samuel

War is an overused theme in entertainment media, and video games in particular are supersaturated with “War is Hell” offerings that do nothing to reinforce the horrors that war visits upon those who are affected by it and the regions in which they take place. They oftentimes feature a white, chisel-jawed superman, who manages to take out the entire opposing force...

Macross games always fail to remember love

on Sat, Jul 12, 2014 | By Jeffrey L. Wilson

Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Shoji Kawamori’s wonderful and influential 1982 TV series, is one of the most beloved anime properties of all time. It’s easy to understand why. Macross features a massive alien invasion, F-14/F-15 fighters that transform into robots, incredibly cheesy pop music courtesy of the prototype anime idol singer, and big, big stakes....

Destiny (PS4) Impressions – An MMOFPS we might really want

on Fri, Jul 11, 2014 | By Elan Samuel

I don’t know how many of you played the Destiny alpha build which took place the weekend after E3, but if you’re one of the folks who didn’t you missed out. For one thing, the chance to play an alpha build of a game that costs an estimated $500 million to develop (and market) is unique in and of itself. Also, it’s a game from a studio who developed Halo and...
