I think I could handle a new Wolfenstein game released every few years that continues the fucking bananas storyline that MachineGames created in the epic Wolfenstein: The New Order that they are continuing in The New Colossus. Looks like BJ survived the events of the first game(spoiler alert) and is going to be a father of twins! I like how everyone that survived the first game is back and that they've added some all new characters to the game that look like a lot of fun. MachineGames New Order was one of the best story driven shooters i've played in years and is a game i've actually come back to play a couple times over. In The New Colossus BJ is set on... Read All

The End Is Nigh is an upcoming platformer by Edmund McMillen, the creator of Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Issac and Tyler Glaiel. It features the voice acting by Red Letter Media's own Rich Evans and music by Ridiculon. I really like the trailer but it doesn't seem to give away too much of the game except that it looks like a platformer that mixes up Super Meat Boy & Gish.

"I’m extremely proud to announce that Tyler and I finally finished something! After months of working in secret I can now say that our game is called The End is Nigh and it will be releasing on Steam, July 12th (in 5 weeks!).

A little back story….

In September of last year Tyler and... Read All

When details of the Switch were vague I noted that if Nintendo offered a Netflix like service where you could pay them a fee and play as many of their old titles as you wanted, that would be pretty awesome. As the Switch was closer to launch Nintendo talked about it's new online service for the system and they said that it would eventually be a paid system where one benefit was a free retro title that was timeboxed to only be playable for a month. Most fans didn't love this idea and Nintendo seems to changing course, according to a new Kotaku article.

"Fans were frustrated by what they saw as yet another oh-so-Nintendo move. As Kotaku commenter Nicholas... Read All

Recently Blizzard dropped a massive 2.0 update on Heroes of the Storm and this last weekend I was able to play a couple matches. I paired up with a friend that plays a ton of Heroes of the Storm and we made our way through about 6-8 games together. As part of the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 launch celebration Blizzard let you select a Heroes pack that focused on certain types of Heroes such as Assassins, Bruisers, Specialists and Support. I picked the Bruisers bundle and as such played mostly of that type and focused on Muradin, XUL & Valla. Heroes of the Storm has come a long way since it's original launch and i'd say it's a really fun pickup and play hero... Read All

The 8-Bit Guy has a cool new video about relabeling destroyed NES carts. He created the Pitfall and Wrestlemania labels by hand, which is no small feat. 8-Bit Guy also talks about some criticism where people shouldn't restore original game carts because history is being changed. 8-But Guy notes that restoring a personal game cart is like restoring an old car and since they will stay in his personal collection it's not a big deal.

A week ago I was let in to the Diablo III Necromancer Beta and to put it simply the Necromancer is a ton of fun. If you loved Diablo III and Reaper of Souls and want a new reason to jump back into the game to play all the new updates you should check out the upcoming Necromancer update. To be clear, The Necromancer will be a separate DLC that you will need to buy and is launching this summer(no word on the pricing yet).

"As a master of the dark arts, you wield the powers of life and death necessary to restore the Balance! Necromancers are powerful spell casters who lay waste to their enemies using curses and reanimation—along with an obedient cadre of pets.... Read All

I don't have a problem with shooter games and violence. I also think it's good that video games branch out from the same kinds of plot lines and story beats. The new Far Cry 5 trailer dropped on the Internet recently and besides Ubisoft taking the game visuals to a new level (it really does look very good) the game is getting a bit of a backlash from gamers for it's setting. Basically the game is set in rural Montana where a religious cult takes over the town of Hope Springs. Since all of what I described is not only a crime in America, but also total bullshit if you enjoy the freedom to do what you want with your life, in Far Cry 5 you are the player set... Read All

If there ever was a time to buy a new keyboard, that time is coming. This update includes Razer Chroma support. It’s kind of an expensive keyboard, but they keys light up. I found it for about $80-90 on Amazon. I was actually thinking about this some time ago, since I often play in the dark and sometimes it’s hard to see keys when I need... Read All

Named “The World of Color" update, 1.12 appears to be coming soon. As it pertains to the name, the game’s color palette is getting an overhaul.

Minecraft is finally getting some birds! Parrots are really interesting mobs. They will mimic the sounds of other mobs around them. They’ll also follow all mobs, whether they’re hostile or not. You can tame them with cookies. This is the addition I’m most looking forward to. I want the blue one, of course!

This update also introduces a new feature, the recipe book, which makes it unnecessary to look up crafting recipes. You’ll see it in your inventory screen. If you use it and select what you want to craft, it will... Read All

Magikarp has always been a bit of a sad Pokemon. They’re almost completely useless, although they do redeem themselves when they evolve into Gyarados. However, that has now changed and Magikarp gets its own game called Magikarp Jump. It is free for Android and iOS. The point of the game is to raise a Magikarp and win jumping contests. The higher a Magikarp’s JP (Jump Points), the higher they are able to jump in the air. There are jumping leagues full of battles to win against other trainers.

To begin, the game gives you an introduction and takes you to catching your first Magikarp. Once caught, it will stay in your pond, which can be decorated. Food will... Read All

Netflix is spending a ton of money on original new content and one of the new shows that will be coming to the streaming service this July 7th is Castlevania. The new trailer doesn't pull any punches as it starts with someone putting a Castlevania game into an old Nintendo and then the Netflix logo and 8bit video morph into a few clips of the show. The animation style looks solid and I wasn't sure how i'd feel about a dark adult Castlevania but this looks like it could be pretty interesting.

What do you think of the new Castlevania trailer? Is this something you are going to watch when it drops on Netflix July 7th?

For $20 this NES Classic bootleg is quite the deal and it comes with 500 games but is it any good? From the video I have serious doubts AND it doesn't even include The Legend of Zelda or at least I didn't see it when he scrolled through all 500 games.

As i've said before, one of the main reasons I wanted a 3DS was to play Link Between Worlds, the direct sequel to A Link to the Past. I plan on writing on my journey through the game as it's quite good and think it might be interesting to read. Link to the Past isn't a very difficult game but it's fun, engrossing and a very tight and focused gameplay experience which is why it's always topped my list for one of the best games of all time. That said, Link to the Past is pretty easy if you play it in the right way and Link Between Worlds ups the ante some to make for a more interesting game. For instance, in traditional Zelda games death has no real effect on... Read All

I'm really excited to see the new Ridley Scott Alien: Covenant film and I don't think i'm the only one as there seems to be a lot of recent videos looking at the old Alien films and franchise games. In the video James and Mike of Cinemassacre play the old Alien VS Predator arcade game and talk about the Alien VS Predator film and other Alien nerdery. I'm going to watch Alien: Covenant with friends tomorrow and have really been enjoying the gaming commentary about these older franchise games and movie series retrospectives. If you are looking for a good Alien series retrospective before you head to the theater to watch the next Alien film Cinemassacre has a... Read All
