Shadwen emerges from the shadows in May!

So this one looks pretty cool, and we have some release information and a trailer to share for it.

Koei Tecmo unveils new systems for the upcoming Atelier game

There is really no getting around it - there are several of us who are positively enchanted with the various Atelier games, and the next one in the series looks to keep us under its spell. We have here some systems that will be in place and some pre-order information as well.


Super Paper Mario - Retro Reflections

Standing out as an eccentric sibling to the core family of Super Mario games, the Paper Mario series has spent its brief legacy introducing players to the Mushroom Kingdom in a uniquely quirky, playful, and story-driven way. Often considered the spiritual successor to Super Mario RPG for the SNES, this offshoot franchise has spawned several creative and personality-packed titles. I’d like to, in the future, talk about the first two games for the N64 and GameCube respectively, but today we’re going to explore the world of Super Paper Mario, a Wii title and the third installment in a cult hit series.


Corpse Party coming to 3DS and PC is some scary good news

Chris and I are both tremendous fans of these games. I still remember playing the first one on my PSP years ago, and I adored it. So this bit of news was more than welcome - and will likely have Chris and I arguing over who gets to play which version on why system. The digital PC is already out and we have a review upcoming, but these other versions are worth keeping an eye on as well.


Blues and Bullets - Episode 2: Shaking The Hive - Xbox One Review

It has been a long wait - a very long wait. Admittedly, one of my concerns about episodically released games has always been the 'what if?' when too much time passes between episodes. Blues and Bullets nearly tests that theory with an eight month hiatus since Episode 1 released. Thankfully, for those who enjoyed the format of the initial chapter, they will find a lot to like here as Blues and Bullets - Episode 2: Shaking The Hive strikes many of the same notes.


Rising Star Games to Publish Assault Suit Leynos on PS4 and PC

Let's face it - this team likes their sci-fi/mech games, and Assault Suit Leynos will likely be one that PY and Robert keep a close eye on as it gets closer.


Stories: The Path of Destinies - PS4 Review

Choice. How often do we hear this word and wonder exactly how much of this famous word will actually affect the outcome? With a total of twenty-five endings to be had through various decisions and gameplay paths, Stories: The Path of Destinies truly offers choice in one of the best narratives that involves the famous groundhog day effect.


PSYCHO-PASS: Mandatory Happiness is heading to PS4, PS Vita this September!

This is looking like one of the more interesting NIS America titles coming our way. We have to wait for fall to get our grubby little mitts on it, but I suspect it will be worth the wait.


1943 - Retro Reflections

1943 is the sequel to 1942, a shooter that dates back to the Second World War, when the American forces defeated the Japanese and prevented them from conquering Eastern Asia. The game itself is not that old but the story takes place in that historic era.


Hyperdevotion Noire: Goddess Black Heart will launch very soon on PC

As in... April 26th soon. I was a big fan of the game when it came around before, so it is great seeing even more Idea Factory games finding a home on Steam.


Zombasite - PC Preview

With how far things have spread, the idea of the Zombie Apocalypse has been everywhere from the classics such as Dawn of the Dead, to popular series such as The Walking Dead over to the hilariousness of Shaun of the Dead. Needless to say lots of “Dead”. With games such as Dead Rising and Dead Island that take things to the heart of Zombies, Zombasite takes the idea into a realm not quite explored. Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse Hack and Slash style where the blame for everything is quite clear. The Dark Elves did it. They truly do get blamed for everything.


Memorable Music in Gaming #25

It is hard to believe we have done twenty five of these articles so far, but here we are. Given the recent release of the popular game Dark Souls III, I thought we would make this edition of Memorable Music in Gaming all about the Soulsborne (as Chris calls them) games. Let's go ahead and tackle these from newest to oldest.


More informtion on the upcoming Mirage: Arcane Warfare

Torn Banner Studios knows its way around fantasy, and their upcoming game shows a lot of promise.


Tesoro Sagitta Optical Gaming Mouse - Hardware Review

Tesoro has been a longstanding favorite around here; I loved the Kuven  and simply cannot get enough of the Excalibur mechanical keyboards. So when the company took a step back to recharge I was both excited and concerned, waiting for their next major release.


Van Helsing - Retro Reflections

Van Helsing is based on the 2004 movie with Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale. Though they are among my favorite actors and I love fantasy, I didn’t enjoy that film. So, how about the game?
