Mega brawling action coming to Vita - soon

MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune VS Zombies is the next Hyper game coming up - and it looks like it could be a doozy.

1byone Amplified HDTV Antenna: 50 Mile Range - Hardware Review

Cutting the cable is not always easy. It does however, tend to save you a great deal of money. Where I live, there are very few options - only one cable company, and just the basic package was running me over one hundred dollars a month. I started to do some research on my options and one of the ones I was most curious about was an HD antenna. That search led me to the 1byone Amplified HDTV Antenna with a fifty mile range, and the overall results have been excellent.


Infestation World coming sooner than later

For those who haven't had their fill of zombies (looking at you Chris H), Infestation World looks like it could deliver some entertainment.


Spellbind - PC Review

Spellbind, by Spider Key, not to be confused with the RPG title of the same name that came out a year ago, is a point and click first person adventure title. You play the role of a plucky young thief charged with the task of breaking into an old man’s mansion and stealing a bottle of wine.


Nights of Azure - PS4 Review

Well known for their Atelier games, it is great to see Gust taking on a new IP and a different style of game. At its heart, Nights of Azure is still a role-playing game, but it has an action-oriented combat system that makes it something different than other Gust games. There is a lot going on here, and by and large I enjoyed what Nights of Azure had to offer, though there were a handful of things that could have been done better as well.


A Noble Quest: The Idea behind a Martian adventure, Dome City

This title caught Robert's eye in particular, and this update is loaded with interesting information.


Mind Zero - PC Review

Originally released for Sony’s PlayStation Vita last year, Mind Zero takes a page from Persona and makes something a bit different in the Wizardry Dungeon Crawling style. Thrown into the shoes of Kei on the very day in which fate reared its head for good or bad, explore a world unseen by others as it runs parallel to our own safe for those with the ability of MIND.


Kholat - PS4 Review

Kholat was a divisive title when it came out on PC, and things are going to no doubt be the same with this recent release it has seen on the PlayStation 4 platform. The game is undeniably beautiful, haunting and often immersive. However, some questionable design choices hold it back and leave room for improvement as well.


Banner Saga 2 Release Date Announced

Banner Saga was a great game that took a lot of people by surprise. As a result, the upcoming sequel is much more firmly in the public's eye as it creeps closer to releasing, with much higher expectations. Here is the latest news on it.


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Movie Review

When I saw the poster of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” I thought something is seriously wrong in the world. What is next, I wondered, “Romeo and Juliet and the curse of the Werewolf”? “War and Peace and the Martians?” (oh no… perhaps I have already said too much!). However, I try to watch every action, adventure and thriller film I find on cinema and “P&P&Z” would be no exception.


XCOM 2 - Mac Review

XCOM 2 is the sequel to Firaxis and 2K's 2012 blockbuster squad-based global strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Within. XCOM 2 places you in command of a rebel organization of both rookie soldiers and some returning faces and takes place many years after its predecessor. Following a similar concept as the majority of the previous XCOM titles, XCOM 2 features perma-death for the (many) unfortunate squad members that you will lose along the way, as you work to stop the "Avatar Project" from essentially erasing humanity from existence. With XCOM 2 being one of the most anticipated titles of the year, I was thrilled to get my mittens on a copy and here are my thoughts.


Celebrate the Launch of Quantum Break at Microsoft Stores

With Quantum Break fast approaching, we are keeping an eye on any and all news - including this.


Magix Youcast - Software Review

With the popularity of streaming on services like Twitch, Ustream, Justin.TV and Plays.TV there’s been a shift from the once extremely popular YouTube stars. This isn’t to say that YouTube is a thing of yesterday as it is still vastly popular especially to watch a video a second or a third time, but when it comes to performing and watching things live? There can sometimes be hardware and software limitations depending on the allocated budget. Owning both an Elgato HD and an AverMedia Extremecap U3 that meet both Hardware and Software needs, having used both FRAPS and XSplit for PC recordings, Magix’s Youcast is a great addition to the mix with the easing in from a software perspective on the PC.


Darkest Dungeon - PC Review

Darkest Dungeon is a gothic horror roguelike sporting archetypal ‘heroes’ from a Lovecraftian world with an ambiance similar to the original Diablo game. It seems, at the surface, to be a very simple and easy to grasp game, and in theory, it is, but the way that these things have been nuanced gives that “Just can’t stop playing” feel to the game. Unlike some recent roguelikes I’ve played, Darkest Dungeon will kill you, repeatedly and horridly, and expect you to pick yourself back up from the ordeal and keep trudging on. Saving money up for a new upgrade becomes a herculean effort when you have an entire roster of heroes, each one debilitated by myriad quirks that need resolving, after all.


Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus Releasing 3/29/16 and 3/31/16!

Aksys Games has a new title coming right around the corner.


Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide Schluesselschloss - PC Review

Having quite enjoyed Vermintide it was time to dive back in for the newest addition to this four player coop dungeon crawling hack and slash with Schluesselschloss. Adding in a whole new area and game mode, this new content can be accessed by both owners of the DLC and even for those that don’t if they join up with their friends. Staying true to the core concept of the Vermintide, Schluesselschloss and The Last Stand continue to beg the question of skill and survival against the unrelenting hordes that would see you dead.


Polaris Sector - PC Review

Polaris Sector is not the easiest of games to hop right into. There is a good deal to learn, especially if you are not already very familiar with the simulation/strategy/4x genre. That being said, there are enough familiar notes throughout the game's presentation to make genre veterans feel right at home, and while there is not a lot of new and innovative ideas at play here, those that are in place work well and the overall game is pretty well executed.


Quantum Break Cinematic Trailer Begins Countdown to April 5

Quantum Break is one of the bigger titles in the first half of 2016 for the Xbox One, so we're interested in everything we can find out about it.


Daddy's Home - Movie Review

I am a fan of Mark Wahlberg; I have seen many of his movies and liked all of them except the dreadful Pain and Gain. The trailer of “Daddy’s home” made me laugh, which rarely happens. So, I went to see the movie with a friend of mine.


Overfall - PC Preview

Nothing quite beats sailing out and across the open seas in search of adventure. Filled with various factions that either want to hunt you down and steal everything you own to those that would rather befriend you and have you between them and those previously mentioned, welcome to the wondrous water world of Overfall.


Ashes of Singularity coming very soon

This interesting title is coming quite soon - like end of the month soon.


A 'new' PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? The idea makes sense, but the suggested execution is wrong - Gaming Thoughts

The recent discussion about possible mid-console updates makes a lot of sense given reports that Quantum Break is a very pretty game - but still only pushing a 720 resolution. Last generation there were multiple developers (Ubisoft being one of the most vocal) about how the console cycle needed to be shorter so that developers could keep pushing the envelope the way they can on the constantly upgrading PC platform. The concept makes sense, given the rapid rate of development and the fact that the impression that the current generation of consoles have been under-performing from a technical standpoint. However, the idea of having mid-cycle updates is the wrong approach and not the right fit for the current generation.


Blood Alloy: Reborn - PC Review

Blood Alloy: Reborn looks and sound absolutely amazing. A little bit Mega Man looking, high pace action, dashing up walls, charged cannons, seeker missiles, dodges, triple jumps and more than enough things to annihilate with your gun and sword. Blood Alloy: Reborn has all the pieces needed to make it a truly awesome game. Well… almost.
