Reviews of new gaming technologies, consoles and newly released games.
'Kingdom Come: Deliverance'
Kingdom Come: Deliverance has been long in the making, with fans playing betas a year ago, and word spreading about how realistic it was going to be. “It’s going to change RPGs” they said. “There’s going to be several ways to complete a task,” they said. “It’s a super realistic story based on European history,” they said.

The Most Anticipated Games of Q1 2018
While some gamers prefer to let the hype train pass them by and jump aboard the patience ferry, others are the perfect representation of the 'shut up and take my money' meme.
Indie-Developed RPG 'Bevontule' Hitting Kickstarter on January 29
Welcome to the continent of Onich, a once vibrant land that’s since been touched by decay and riddled with deadly foes. Over the 1,500 years since its discovery by refugees fleeing from a devastated homeland, the continent’s dark history slowly started to surface, its provinces falling victim to the ravenous Kelvari. The network of evil is responsible for breeding “Rootsouls,” the fierce creatures that have claimed parts of Onich as their own.
'Metal Gear Survive' and the Developer's Quandary
On September 21st, 2016, I went on a little rant, calling die-hard Metal Gear fans “dramatic,” claiming that they put the series on “such a high pedestal that any deviation from the source material is viewed as a black mark, a cancer that will only serve to destroy all they’ve grown to love.” All of this, of course, was in response to the reveal of Konami’s Metal Gear Survive, and was part of a piece explaining how the title wasn’t the end-all for the series.
'PUBG' Is Disappointing Xbox Players
The game that has captured the attention of PC gamers has come to Xbox consoles. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a 100 player free-for-all game that has been highly popular on PC for the past few months. This game allows players to play solo or in teams. The objective is to be the last ones standing in a large scale battle, where the playing area gets smaller with each passing minute and areas where artillery rain fire from above. The game is a fast pasted shooter with countless options for the player.
'Red Dead Redemption 2' Teaser Photos Are a Great Source of Photoshop Fun
When Rockstar Games revealed two malnourished and grungy crimson-red photos announcing the arrival of the next great Western video game Red Dead Redemption 2, it was only logical that the world went crazy. Rockstar is one of those studios that seems to be in possession of a clairvoyant who knows how to conjure up such mass appeal.
Bayonetta 3 Confirmed!
The "Bayonetta" series is an action-packed game series full of hack and slashes. It's developed by Platinum Games and directed by Hideki Kamiya who is currently on Twitter and does often respond to fan tweets. The game holds strong influence from mythology, particularly Scandinavian mythology. Ever since the first Bayonetta game was released in 2009, it's become an international hit sparking controversy for feminists where people wonder if the title character is a good role model for women. I think she is and is a pretty god-damn awesome one at that.
Game Review: Marvel's Spiderman
The upcoming game of the century, Marvel's Spiderman, has been confirmed to be released next year in 2018. The developers from Insomniac are currently developing the most new and improved Spiderman game ever! The sad part is, this awesome game will only play on PS4 and not other gaming platforms :(.
With 'Scalebound' Canceled, Is Capcom's PlayStation 4 Exclusive 'Deep Down' Next?
For many of us who snagged an Xbox One for impending games and exclusives like #Scalebound, it was quite the shock when we found our most anticipated game had been canceled. This Platinum Games title had been a long time coming and wasn't just one we had hoped to see when the console launched, but also a game that drew attention due to its massive dragons and fast-paced co-op action. It was a game that wore the Platinum Games trademark all over it, including the anime-style character with his combat prowess, just as we had seen with Nier: Automata.
'L.A. Noire' is Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch Followed by a VR Release
When #LANoire was first released in 2011, the detective adventure game took fans back into the 1940s, and featured some of the most cutting edge facial animations seen to date.
The Unpopular Opinion: 'Destiny,' It's Not Me, It's You. Why I'll Be Skipping Out on 'Destiny 2'
Destiny is not a great game. It's a game that is broken, flawed, troubled. I say this as someone who was once a hardcore fan. Much like you, I spent all the time I needed to get the best Sparrows in the game. I spent all the time I needed taking down Crota, Oryx and even Atheon, in order to get the best gear possible in the first two years of the game. I even went on the forums, dismayed at being ripped off — but like an addict, I kept coming back for more.
