I Can’t Help Reading Every Damn Text Box In Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Fire Emblem: Three Houses has been a little bit of a slow burn for me. While I’ve been a fan of the series since Awakening, I found myself beset by choice paralysis in Three Houses when I realized that I did not even remotely feel attached to any of the three precocious rich children with […]

My New, Healthier Mobile Game Obsession Is Fidel: Dungeon Rescue

Some mobile games play psychological tricks with you to get you to keep playing. Others hook you the much better way, simply by being great. So it is with the new iOS port of the stellar Fidel: Dungeon Rescue, which is billed as “the roguelike where you can rewind.”Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

We Happy Few Has An Ambitious Mix That I’m Having Trouble Getting Into

Mixing survival gameplay with a narrative is always a tough task for developers, but it’s one the creators of We Happy Few takes on. I’m 10 hours into their game, which is out today for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and I’m both charmed and frustrated. The writing is excellent, and the visuals are spectacular, […]

I’ve Picked My Side For World Of Warcraft’s Battle For Azeroth

It’s been years since I gave a damn which World of Warcraft faction I was playing. Horde? Alliance? Whichever. But now, as the Battle for Azeroth expansion rapidly approaches and substantial chunks of the world are getting set on fire and plagued beyond habitation, it’s time I took a stand.

It’s 2018 And I’m Hooked On Mega Man X Again

I’ve never enjoyed a single movement in a video game as much as the Mega Man X dash jump. I could dash jump all day—off ledges, up walls, across pits filled with spikes. For all the double jumps, dodge rolls, and infinite sprints I’ve encountered since, nothing has filled my heart with so much joy […]

The PS1 Strategy Game That Nails Robotic Destruction

In Front Mission 3’s 18th battle, I’m on a naval base facing down two giant walking artillery cannons, four Gundam-like mechs, and an apache helicopter. It isn’t the most challenging tactical role-playing game from the PS1 era, but like lots of games from that era it’s prone to the occasional difficulty spike. Unlike…Read more… Continue […]

The Star Ocean Mobile Game Is Easy To Hate And Still Play Anyway

There’s finally a new Star Ocean game after 2016's barebones Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. Unfortunately, Star Ocean: Anamnesis, the latest entry, free-to-play, only on smartphones, and a gacha game to boot. The first of those would be forgivable if not for the second, but as a slot machine for collecting…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

My First Hours With The Crew 2 Were Mostly Forgettable

Last night in The Crew 2 I drove from New Orleans to Manhattan in about 20 minutes. Behind the wheel of the free, workmanlike 2016 Mazda MX-5 the gamegave me to start, I zig-zagged between other cars because one, I was going 150 miles an hour and they were not; and two, narrowly avoiding collisions […]

Help, I Can’t Decide Which Octopath Traveler Character To Start With

I’m in a pickle. The new demo for the upcoming JRPG Octopath Traveler lets you play the first three hours of the game a few weeks early. Instead of making three hours’ worth of progress, I’ve spent that time trying to figure out which main character to choose.Read more… Continue Reading at http://kotaku.com

Stick Fight Is A Perfect Game To Play With Non-Gamers

Most of the time, I want to be gaming. If you’re here, probably, you can relate. In the grand scheme of personality traits, that one isn’t so bad; just not 100% satisfiable in every circumstance. Sometimes I find myself in an unfortunate situation involving me, chilling, and several other people who don’t play games,…Read more… […]
