TGS 2016: February is going to be a busy month for Japanese game fans

JRPGs and Japanese games in general have been woefully scarce this generation. While there were some light offerings, the AAA JRPG scene has been remarkably quiet and barebones with every game we get excited for being delayed or released far off into the future. Sony has always been the haven for fans of Japanese games, but even they have been having almost no presence for JRPGs in the West. But a...

TGS 2016: Kojima shared some juicy new vague info on Death Stranding

Oh Kojima. You are an anomaly in our world. A beacon of hope that slightly confuses you when you look at it directly. A true visionary that also digs 80s cinematography. You are a special jewel in the gaming industry and we hope you never change. Anyway, Kojima revealed his first game since parting from the deplorable Konami in true Kojima fashion: show a bunch of vague stuff and have people argue...

Act surprised everyone, The Last Guardian has been delayed

At least it’s not as bad as you might think. The Last Guardian has been in development hell for so long that I’ve graduated from highschool and university during the time it was in development. Sony surprised us by showing us that the game is still very much alive and will release in 2016. Many cast doubt on this since we have been burned before, but there was always hope in our hearts...

Wait, Peter Molyneux has a new game out?

Apparently he does.  Peter Molyneux has been a bit of a black sheep in the gaming industry in recent years. Ever since his spectacular and tragic blunder with the much maligned Godus, his previous legendary status of innovative game developer has come under massive scrutiny. He has always made grand promises, which were commendable in a way because he was at least trying to push the gaming medium ...

Check out the trippy Tokyo 42, coming to consoles and PC

I’ll be real with you, I have never heard of this game. My ignorance proved pretty detrimental because this game is looking awesome as hell. Tokyo 42, developed by SMAC and published by Mode 7, is an isometric action game that harkens back to the good old days of the isometric killing spree games such as the very original Grand Theft Autos. It looks to be trying to achieve some wicked style ...

The Art of Gaming: Environmental Storytelling – Worldly Beauty

Take a look at your surroundings right now. Look at the little intricacies and the various items scattered everywhere. Your surroundings tell a distinct story. Maybe it’s something mundane like the glass you left on your table that has been sitting there for 2 days because you were too lazy to go to the kitchen. Maybe it’s a family portrait of that time you all went on a vacation and e...

Shadow Warrior 2 gets a release date, will skip consoles this year

Shadow Warrior 2 has been one of my low-key anticipated games of this year. It’s not so important that I will dye my hair and make a YouTube channel for it, but I’m pretty excited to experience some absolute mayhem and kill some demon scum after I’ve had a good fill of it playing DOOM. Also, we all need some laughs in our lives. But since I’m not part of the Master Race, I ...

The Burning Question: Should real-life current issues be kept out of games?

Art reflects life. I think we all know that little popular saying. We take stuff from our real world and implement it into our artistic endeavours. Of course, it’s not the only way you can do art. You can do an abstract piece, something rooted in fantasy or just create brand new worlds at your whim. But there’s something to be said about art that takes our real life and presents it in ...

This War of Mine devs reveal their new (depressing) game, Frostpunk

11 bit Studios are responsible for the fantastic This War of Mine. It is a harrow telling of modern day conflicts and how this affects the people in war-torn countries. It presented a player with a cavalcade of impossible choices that make you feel guilty and like a horrible human being, but if you do not make those choices, your people will die. It is a gripping and tense experience that should c...

Opinion: No Man’s Sky defines a generation

Take your mind back to 2013, when the announcement trailer for No Man’s Sky dropped. We were stunned by the ambitious game with its quadrillions of planets, the endless possibilities and the sense of child-like wonder that comes with exploration. It was also surprising to see that the game was being made by a small team of indie developers called Hello Games. The game became a media darling ...

Rocksmith 2014 is getting remastered, will still keep the date

Now that’s just confusing for everybody. Rocksmith 2014 is the premier guitar teaching tool that also doubles as a video game. I have used the program for many years and it has essentially taught me how to play guitar. It makes the learning process much easier, it offers great tutorials and practice methods, and a ton of great songs both on the disc and as DLC. If you’ve ever wanted to...

Your nude screenshots are safe, PSN has two-step verification now

Cyber security, a thing that a dude in a silver jacket would have said in the 80s, is incredibly important today. Our lives are online, your Gmail account is basically your passport on the internet, your livelihood sits on a website. It’s frankly incredible how we are still trusting people to input their own passwords and hope they won’t just type “password”, “12345&#...
