From big-budget hits to indie gems, we played some great games this month. Let’s look at some of our favorite games from June.
When Ubisoft announced that they had one more game to show off at the end of their 2016 E3 conference everyone in the audience, myself included, shifted to the edge of their seats. Then Steep happened.
A lot of great games came out in May, from reboots of classics to new team-based shooters to the end of a dashing adventure series. Take a look at some of our favorite games from the last month.
In the last couple of years, I’ve developed a strange relationship with JRPGs. I found myself tiring of their beautiful exteriors that lacked heart. Since writing that article about my growing frustrations, I took a break—distancing myself from the genre that dragged me into gaming. It was a necessary betrayal.
The most fun I ever had using stealth mechanics was in Ape Escape. Now, thanks to all the conveniently placed tall grass in A Thief’s End, Uncharted 4 has become a strong contender as my favorite—and I’m a bit annoyed with myself for that.
One thing that fascinates us about zombies is the absence of humanity—from both the dead and the living. This begets moral ambiguity, and upheaval of societal norms. For some, zombies may be overused but for me? I’m terrified of them. Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress sometimes feeds into my obsessions with the undead.…
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…
