Whether you liked Nioh or hated it, I must truly commend Team Ninja for their spectacular job on handling this demo. This is the kind of demo that I wish every game was able to sport before release. But first, let’s take a quick history lesson regarding this Nioh.
We got some big games this past month, like Dark Souls III, the new Ratchet & Clank, and the Banner Saga sequel, to name just a few. But those three are just a small part of the two dozen games we’ve looked at, and loved, in April. Have a look:
Every season, we here at AniTAY do a list of Anime that You Should be Watching around the middle of the season, an article type that we blatantly stole from Richard Eisenbeis. While this article is an awesome collaboration and it’s a great help for those people interested in the currently airing anime season, it…
You must have heard by now. Word on the grapevine is that God of War is swapping out a loin cloth for hide trousers, sandals for boots, and the Blades of Chaos for axes, and heading north to desecrate the world of Norse mythology.
How many games do you know that manage to combine Jungian psychology, Japanese school-life and urban legends? Just like me, the Persona series isn’t as popular in the West as Final Fantasy, but it’s been around just as long (since 1987), and is arguably much more interesting.
It’s the first of April, but the games listed here aren’t jokes. On the contrary! They’re actually quite good, in various ways. From indies to triple-As, expansions to re-releases, the 19 below were our favorite games last month.
Above us, the moon. Beneath us, the Earth. In front of us, a massive, three-story tower. Overlapping bleeps and bloops accentuate the eerie calm. We’re blasting off into orbit, and you might know where we’re headed. Never before, nor since, has Capture the Flag been so much fun.
Video games are amazing, because you can be anyone or anything in the universe: a blue hedgehog! A ghost! A unicorn with rocket launchers! About 80% of the time, though, you get to be a brooding white guy. There are so many of them that it’s hard to keep track. And they all seem to have dead wives.
February’s the shortest month of the year. Does that affect our recommendations for February? Not sure but, as a matter of fact, we are down to 18 games this month. Those 18 are pretty good, though. Take a look:
On February 16th, Street Fighter V came out at a full price of $60. The big problem with that is Street Fighter V is not, by any stretch of the imagination, a fully finished game.
Last month, game releases picked up in speed after the end-of-holiday lull of December. As a result, we have 21 recommendations for you, from triple-A fares and indie gems to a simulator about breeding cute slimes. There’s all kinds of games to choose from, so dig in.
I’m falling asleep at the wheel. I’ve been driving for 16 hours straight, hauling freight across the border between Nevada and California. Yawning, my eyes briefly flutter shut and I lose sight of the road. My eyes flick open and I straighten up my lorry.
Once a work enters the public domain, it is no longer subject to copyright laws. A publisher can print their own edition of the Beatrix Potter books, a filmmaker can make a film of any of Shakespeare’s plays, and a game developer can adapt any of the characters, scenes, or even whole stories from public domain works.
During the early years in gaming, JRPGs were one of the few ways of getting a good, meaningful story in games, but as much as fans of the genre adore them, JRPGs have their fair share of problems. The story of the genre hasn’t been the smoothest, and many people’s experiences reflect that, my own included. This is a…
It’s a pretty great feeling, standing at the brink of a new year and surveying what’s to come—even if it later turns out that half of your most anticipated games get delayed, as happened to us last year. For 2016, we’ve included some picks from our readers as well as our own. Let’s dive right in.
December—a time for snow, Doctor Who Christmas specials, and slow game releases. But slow doesn’t mean we didn’t come across anything worth checking out. And so, below is what we played and liked in December.
Picking a faction in Fallout 4 is the most agonizing choice in the entire game. Turns out, deciding the fate of the Commonwealth is very difficult when every group vying for dominance is awful in its own, special way.
Whether it’s a good old-fashioned expansion pack or modern DLC, spinning additional content for already-released games has been a standard practice in the industry for decades. But the best expansions do more than simply add a few extra hours of the same game for you to play.
The future is scary and, according to these 15 dystopias in video games, it’s going to get a lot stranger before things get better.
In a home filled with technological marvels of all shapes and sizes, one piece of oft-derided hardware gets more love from my family and I than any other. Kinect, tell the nice people how much I cherish you.
