In partnership with Krool Games, McDonalds released Grimace's Birthday a themed game that ties in with the Gimace's Birthday meal celebrating everyone favorite purple McNugget. That sentence might sound like it's entirely made up, but it's not and Grimace's Birthday on Gameboy Color is actually really really good. It's only a handful of levels long, and not very hard, but why does every game have to be Dark Souls and 5,000 hours long? Grimace's Birthday isn't and it's so fun my seven year old son likes playing it. I was happy to have been able to beat it in my second setting in 4m33s. Currently as of me writing this the Speedrun record for Grimace's Birthday is by... Read All

I just found an announcement that Shredder's Revenge is getting a DLC. It says "new game mode," "new character colors," and even "new playable characters," although the only one listed is Usagi Yojimbo. You can wish list it and get more details on Steam. There isn't a release date or price announced yet, though.

Let me know what you think.

"The History of Diablo" is a great 15 minute video giving some details about the history of Diablo in time for Diablo IV's release. I think it's a must-see for Diablo fans.

Let me know what you think about it and if you're getting into Diablo IV today.

The new Minecraft 1.20 Trails and Tales update is coming this June 7th!

For all the information on what’s included check this:

One of the things I like most about games that are sequels is seeing how a game I enjoyed got improved. This is especially true when it comes to PCBS2. There are new tools and lots of QoL (quality of life) improvements, which I often see in sequels I enjoy. PCBS2 gives you more to work with and unlocks a lot of good stuff quickly without too much leveling up progression needed.

One of the things I love most about this game is it’s amazing soundtrack, which has a beautiful mix of rock, rap, and techno. “Hard to Believe” is often in my head and “No Fear of Falling” really strikes a chord with my heart strings. There are a couple of references to COVID such as in “... Read All

"Capcom transitions the Street Fighter franchise onto its excellent in-house RE Engine, so how does it look across consoles old and new? Tom checks out the recently released demo running on current and last-generation PlayStation consoles, plus there's a look at Xbox Series consoles too. Specs and performance may change with the final game - but this is how the game's shaping up via Capcom's own public-facing demo code."

If you have an XBox S/X, Playstation 4 or 5 or a PC running Steam you can download and play the new Street Fighter 6 demo! Remember those? You can play two of the new characters and try out the new avatar and world fighting mode against other players... Read All

Mortal Kombat 1 was announced today and looks to reboot the series entirely and was announced for a September 19th launch. It seems the Fire God Liu Kang is rebooting the Mortal Kombat-verse and whereas the game looks very Mortal Kombat-like they are promising a new re-visioning of the game.

"Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities!"

The trailed doesn't really get specific on any new game mechanics but I'm interested to know more about how they are bringing the series into a new era. I thought Mortal Kombat 11 was incredible and offered a really fun modernization on the game, frankly I'm not... Read All

Mighty DOOM is the latest franchise shooter entry that dropped on iOS and Android phones as a free to play game. Even though I first played DOOM as Shareware sometime ago, this is the first DOOM game that I can think of that's a free to play mobile game. After blasting my way through the Demon Hordes in Mighty DOOM for a day I'm happy to say the game is a worth game that earns the DOOM name.

One of my fears with mobile free to play games is how annoying the gameplay will be to get you to pay money. I don't fault developers for doing what they need to do to pay rent, that said, I prefer buying games up front. That said, that's not how things often work on phones so free... Read All

Bethesda released a video today letting us know the September 6th release of Starfield. This may be the only new game I'm interested in playing this year. Last year I made a goal to play more games than I buy, and as part of that have artificially limited myself to the purchase of three games all year long. So far I bought nothing, but Starfield may be it. That said, I still have a three month Game Pass subscription I have yet to activate, so either way, playing this game looks good.

Besides Skyrim in space, I really don't know much about what this game may be? I'm sure it's not "Skyrim in space" but Bethesda hasn't released a whole lot of details which they seem like... Read All
