++Review: Fez

You can’t talk Fez without talking Phil Fish and his flash-in-the-pan tenure in the public eye. There, I mentioned him, and while I have a wide variety of opinions on the guy and some things he’s infamous for having said, this isn’t ++Good People. So, with that out of the way, let’s discuss the game, […]

RETROCITY – Skullgirls

Ah, Skullgirls. When the gaming media flipped the eff out over your announcement, I was stoic. When the tourney scene took to you like a fish to water, I was apathetic. When Steam decided to list you at $5.00 during a holiday sale… I couldn’t say “no.” Finding myself in the possession of one of […]

++Review – Witch and the Hundred Knight

It is now, in the waning days of the previous console generation, that the straggling releases condemned to debut at the end of the line have the greatest chance of being completely overlooked.

I love PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Probably more than I love the Smash Bros. franchise. Which means I found it particularly upsetting to discover that Sony had officially announced they would be discontinuing support for the game, cementing the roster as-is, and rolling out only one more balance patch, and possibly one more map pack. […]

Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn Announced… Wait, What?!

Shaquille O’Neal, apparently, wants to make another video game starring himself, based on a trash franchise from the Genesis era and… that, uh… that trailer looks really good, actually. REALLY good. Kind of like Afro Samurai with a dash of Saturday Morning thrown in. Huh. Maybe I’ll be following this one. I don’t at all […]

Don’t Starve Blind Box Figures hit the Klei Online Shop!

The last time I can recall this happening was with Team Meat’s Super Meat boy. It’s not often that the world of indie games crosses over into the realm of high quality collectibles, but every time it happens I sit up and take note. After all, I love video games and toys! Of course I love […]

Several days ago, in preparation for the eShop release of Weapon Shop de Omasse, the benevolent powers that be decided to let the entire catalogue of Guild games go for a measly $2.99 each!

SEGA Announces Blade Arcus from Shining

Persona 4 Arena started the trend, and AquaPazza kept it going. Now, Sega looks to co-opt an odd property for a fighting game, and it’s a doozey. Shining Force. One of their most treasured, longest standing properties is calling an audible and switching things up in “Blade Arcus from Shining.” It’s a weird name, for […]
