Spread the love        Tweet    Back when Treyarch announced that the Battle Royale genre was coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, no one was surprised and most were hyped. I was sitting in the room, mere feet from David Vonderhaar himself when he mentioned the news, and the crowd erupted in cheers. At the time, I mentioned

Spread the love        Tweet    For the past week or so, I have been enjoying the Blackout beta for Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 to get my first taste of its much-anticipated take on the Battle Royale genre. What I’ve been most surprised by is the level of nostalgia that I experienced while exploring its

Spread the love        Tweet    Despite having enjoyed the first season of Life is Strange, I never got around to playing Before the Storm or this summer’s standalone release, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. This wasn’t necessarily on purpose on my behalf, I just found myself kind of un-intrigued by the new projects in this universe that were being made.

Spread the love        Tweet    Playing Senran Kagura Reflexions has definitely been an uphill battle for me. I wouldn’t even necessarily call Senran Kagura Reflexions a full-blown video game. It’s most certainly not what I expected it to be. There were many times I wanted to stop playing Reflexions but the game’s wide-eyed protagonist, Asuka, begged me to keep going, to keep

Spread the love        Tweet    One of the most relevant additions of the day one patch that was released by Sony for Marvel’s Spider-Man is its Photo Mode. The mode comes with some interesting features, including a selfie camera that lets you change Spider-Man’s expression, and plenty of filters, stickers, and frames. Considering that the game is

Spread the love        Tweet    Back in 2013, Hello Games announced they would be going out of their comfort zone with an incredibly ambitious project. The trailer for the said project, which claimed that every planet was procedural, unique and unexplored, opens with the player underwater taking in flora and fauna within. The player then makes their

Spread the love        Tweet    This is only my second year into my Pro Evolution Soccer journey, with PES 2018 being my football game of choice last year. And overall, I’d still consider my experience in the game nascent when compared to the years I dumped into the FIFA franchise. And while the rivalry still burns hot between the two, no other

Spread the love        Tweet    Like many, my love for professional wrestling has the WWE front and center. I have become infatuated with the product they have created, for better and for worse. As I grew more interested in the sport, I wanted to broaden my horizons. This is where New Japan Pro Wrestling comes in. The

Spread the love        Tweet    Blade Strangers is a weird anomaly amongst other fighting game titans like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, and Street Fighter V. It’s not afraid to be something a little bit off the beaten path incorporating substantial indie characters like Isaac from The Binding of Isaac, and Shovel Knight from… Shovel Knight, as well as more niche Japanese characters from the Gunvolt series, Code of Princess,

Spread the love        Tweet    I often find myself scrolling through media outlets–like Twitter, for instance–shaking my head and breathing long sighs of disappointment when I come across posts that seemingly point the finger at video games for the world’s mental health problems. The vast majority of research on the effects of “gaming” has been on its

Spread the love        Tweet    Another Gamescom has come and (almost) gone, and it’s time to call the winners of our traditional DualShockers’ Awards. As usual, do keep in mind that no award is ever completely objective. These honors represent the games that we loved at the show, and in case of our top award, the Readers’

Spread the love        Tweet    Bringing comic book characters to life in a fitting and accurate way has always been a rocky road for video game developers. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe™ seems to be perpetually knocking it out of the park, comic to game transitions oftentimes aren’t quite as on point. With Insomniac Games’ incarnation of

I’ve eaten hundreds of Crunchwraps in my life but every so often, one will be so perfectly made that I’m legitimately taken aback by how well constructed and

Spread the love        Tweet    Mobile gaming is having a renaissance, however, it’s not the one I anticipated. In the past, I shared the belief that mobile gaming would eventually become so inherently convenient that it would change the modern gaming landscape in one fell swoop. Speaking in 2018, one look around my bedroom would prove otherwise.

Spread the love        Tweet    The first game that got me really interested in video games was none other than Message in a Haunted Mansion, one of the all-time best point-and-click mystery Nancy Drew games by Her Interactive; I had it for both my Game Boy Advance and on PC. After revealing the person behind the “hauntings” and beating

Spread the love        Tweet    When Hello Neighbor was originally revealed many years ago, I was genuinely excited for the quasi-horror/puzzle game. Unfortunately, that excitement quickly ran out when I found out that the game was only coming to PC and Xbox One (at the time), as my PC can’t handle running many games, and I simply didn’t own an

Spread the love        Tweet    As one of the final projects to come from the brief, but impactful, run of developer Clover Studio (the predecessor to a team that would become PlatinumGames), a game like Okami certainly was a good note to end on. The PS2-era action-adventure game–originally released back in 2006–garnered critical acclaim for its striking balance of
