Spread the love        Tweet    While February has been a month rife with new releases, this week is actually a bit quieter than usual, especially when you consider that both Metro Exodus and Days Gone were supposed to release Friday. That being said, this week was likely avoided by many because it contains one juggernaut of a

Subtitles help indicate sounds I may not have been able to hear, they help me follow spoken dialogue. It’s not just me, they help other Deaf, hard-of-hearing, and even hearing people alike.

Spread the love        Tweet    This is it. The Grand Finals of the 2019 Six Invitational, the last day of this weekend’s Rainbow Six Siege major tournament.

Spread the love        Tweet    Cast your mind back to when the Battle Royale genre in video games first came about. You’ll probably first find yourself thinking back to the beginning of 2017 when PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds grew in popularity, perhaps the first game to really kickstart this whole Battle Royale craze off. Of course, you’ll also probably think about Fortnite too,

Spread the love        Tweet    I can imagine the development process behind Far Cry New Dawn. Ubisoft developers, project designers, and executives crowded around a conference room, pouring over the reviews of Far Cry 5, looking at the shortfalls and critiques and meticulously planning on how to improve the sequel–where to experiment on in the franchise. While the gambles

Spread the love        Tweet    Level-5’s Yo-kai Watch series has always featured a wonderful sense of humor, but I was caught off guard with the role-playing game starting off with an extended parody of Chris Carter’s magnum opus, The X-Files. Cheekily called “The Y Files,” players get to see cartoon versions of Mulder and Scully (now called Blunder and

Spread the love        Tweet    Crazy hair, oversized swords, and fantastical monsters. These seem to be the essential ingredients for most Japanese developed action RPGs. While these things may be prevalent in most JRPGs, their success relies heavily on how fun the gameplay is and how even the most repetitious task never gets old. Look at series

Spread the love        Tweet    Ever since I stumbled across Wargroove last year through the Twittersphere, I’ve been bugging our reviews editor to let me review it. The turn-based strategy style sucked me in right away: It’s a genre I’ve always admired and think I’m much better at than I really am. Wargroove immediately gives off a

Spread the love        Tweet    I’ve logged an absurd amount of hours into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) on Xbox One (God rest my soul) and two Steam accounts (because apparently I was too good and they thought I was hacking).
