Pokemon Fighting Game Announced!

Pokemon Fighting Game Announced!

  Seeing Pokémon battle in different games is nothing new. Pokémon Stadium and Super Smash Bros allowed players new ways to battle with Pokémon. Apparently that wasn’t enough as The Pokémon Company and Badai Namco have teamed up to give players a more hardcore Pokemon battle experience in an arcade game titled POKKÉN TOURNAMENT. This is…interesting. It’s odd that they would develop this as an arcade game, but then again Metal Gear Solid’s online multiplayer was also in Japanese arcades as well. No word on if/when this will hit stateside, but seeing as how the trailer has English in it I wouldn’t be... Read On

Rise of the Tomb Raider to be Xbox One Exclusive

Gamescon kicked off this week with Microsoft having an Xbox press conference bright and early in the day. Many of the games due out this fall made their usual appearance, however they did touch upon a few games that are not due until next year.

Assassin’s Creed: Rogue Officially Announced

Event though Assassin’s Creed Unity was going to be exclusive to current gen consoles Ubisoft was adamant that there would be a game for last gen consoles as well. Nothing was announced at E3 this year which left many wondering what this game was going to be since it was supposedly due out this year as well.

New Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Trailer Showcases Story

As we get closer to the release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Activision and Sledgehammer Games are stepping up their PR game with a new trailer that gives us a good look at the story. Also we get to see Kevin Spacey give a great performance that House of Cards fans will be all too familiar with so naturally he is going to be awesome.

Old Art Meets New Tech- First Impressions of Testament of the White Cypress

Old Art Meets New Tech- First Impressions of Testament of the White Cypress

Quite often- far too often, really, I complain about the wonderful first-world-woes of being a game journalist. “There are far too many games to review!” I whine. And indeed, my inbox continues to overflow with press releases for amazing games- far more than I’ll probably get to play in my lifetime. Right now, the trend is toward space related games- which is nice for me, as a huge fan of science fiction (and a sci-fi author!), but sometimes, I get sick of staring into the stars. Don’t get me wrong- I hope these space games continue for a good long...

30 Minutes of MGS V: The Phantom Pain Gameplay

Yesterday it was announced that Kojima productions would be doing a live stream of 30 minutes of gameplay from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Unfortunately for most of us it would be streaming very early in the morning (when pretty much everyone would still be asleep). Thankfully the full stream is available to view online and here it is. Just skip to the 50 minute mark to get to the gameplay.   The game is shaping up to be one of the best Metal Gear Solid experiences (at least in the gameplay department) and I am very... Read On

We all knew it was coming, but today Bonnie Ross, the General Manager at 343 Industries, has officially announced Halo 5: Guardians will be released in the Fall of 2015 for the Xbox One.

Is Greenlight Running Out of Steam?

Is Greenlight Running Out of Steam?

I saw it happening again. Another indie, fed up with being ignored by the masses, put his game up to download for free via the magic of Bittorent in hopes that somebody would pay it attention. Frankly, I can’t blame him, though I hope his is the last I see for a while. It’s not as though he hasn’t done anything to put his game out there- he has an active Twitter page and has obviously put lots of work into promoting his game. In spite of this, however, I hadn’t heard of Ciro Continisio’s game, UFHO2, or his... Read On
