• Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Review – Steam, also on Xbox One and PlayStation 4


Dragon Ball Xenoverse launched about a year ago, and was generally well received for players looking for a pseudo-MMO feel to their Dragon Ball related fighting games. Dimps has delivered similar experiences since the Sparking series first started many years ago, slowly but surely refining several elements along the way. It all culminated in Xenoverse. For the first time, players were able to play as their own created characters based on various races featured in the Manga and TV series. It was a fun game to play, especially with others. But there were some shortcomings that players encountered. But this new entry of the game seeks to address these issues. But that’s pretty much all that this entry does.

The Metronomicon Review – Steam

Posted By Eric Kelly On December 9, 2016 at 11:43 am ADD COMMENTS

Ever wanted to play an RPG that also includes a rhythm game with a combat system? Well you might be in luck, as The Metronomicon provides such an experience. But if you wanted either a well done one or such a game with a more serious story, you might want to look elsewhere. It’s not that this game is bad. Far from it, but while the concept is nice, the game doesn’t do quite enough to satisfy either type of fan.

Paper Mario: Color Splash Review (Wii U)

Posted By Eric Kelly On November 2, 2016 at 11:37 am Comments Off on Paper Mario: Color Splash Review (Wii U)

I’ll be honest with you guys. I didn’t like Paper Mario: Sticker Star a whole lot. Then again, that wasn’t exactly a sentiment possessed by me alone. Sticker Star could have been a good game, but it possessed a lack of an interesting story and writing. Combine that with no real reason to engage in combat while traipsing through levels aimlessly, lead to the game being a large disappointment. This entry seeks to correct those faults, but it’s only mostly successful. Nintendo is still playing it safe, and it’s a bit to the game’s detriment once again.

NHL 17 Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on Xbox One)

Posted By Michael Leparc On October 3, 2016 at 10:34 am Comments Off on NHL 17 Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on Xbox One)

nhl-17-logoEA Sports is now on its third installment of hockey for this generation of console gaming. While NHL 15 arrived on the PS4/XB1 platform after its other sports siblings, it lacked many critical features like online leagues, leading to a huge outcry. NHL 16 righted most of the wrongs fortunately and today comes NHL 17 to build on its shored up foundation. The question is have they done enough beyond a roster to warrant another buy?

Posted By Justin Lee On July 14, 2016 at 10:22 am Comments Off on Nintendo Announces NES Classic Edition: Mini NES Includes 30 Classic NES Games

If you see a Nintendo Entertainment System on store shelves this holiday shopping season, you haven’t entered a time machine. (Unless everyone around you is wearing acid-washed jeans and neon leg warmers. If that’s the case, you may have unknowingly walked through a rift in the space-time continuum.) The most likely scenario is you are setting eyes on the Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition, launching in stores on Nov. 11 at a suggested retail price of $79.99. That’s right: The NES is back! But this isn’t the same NES that you fondly remember. This new nostalgia-fueled system is a near-identical, mini replica of Nintendo’s original home console and plugs directly into your high-definition TV using an included HDMI cable. The console comes complete with 30 NES games built in, including beloved classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, PAC-MAN, and Kirby’s Adventure.

“We wanted to give fans of all ages the opportunity to revisit Nintendo’s original system and rediscover why they fell in love with Nintendo in the first place,” said Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director. “The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition is ideal for anyone who remembers playing the NES, or who wants to pass on those nostalgic memories to the next generation of gamers.”

The system comes packaged with an HDMI cable, an AC adapter, and one NES Classic Controller, which is patterned after the iconic design of the original NES controller. But you really just want to know the full list of 30 games, right? Feast your eyes on the fantastic collection of NES classics included with each and every system:

The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition Review – PlayStation 4

Posted By Eric Kelly On July 14, 2016 at 9:52 am Comments Off on The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition Review – PlayStation 4

The Witch and the Hundred Knight Revival Edition LogoWhen the Witch and the Hundred Knight originally released on the PS3, it was an okay action RPG, but it had a few issues holding it back. Now in 2016, the game has received a PS4 port, although the game is still largely the same. And that’s a bit of a missed opportunity, as it could have been better.

One Piece: Burning Blood – Xbox One Review (Also on PlayStation 4)

Posted By Eric Kelly On July 5, 2016 at 4:14 pm Comments Off on One Piece: Burning Blood – Xbox One Review (Also on PlayStation 4)

One Piece Burning Blood LogoIt’s been awhile since there’s been a purely fighting game variant of One Piece. Before, fans had RPG and Dynasty Warriors spin-offs to deal with. But now that the show has been in the public consciousness for a while now in the West, it was time to bring together many of the series best characters for a battle royale. The only problem is that perhaps the game could have stayed in the oven for a bit longer, as it can in fact burn up one’s blood. Just not in a good way.
