“Final Fantasy XV’s Prompto is the Best.” For some fans, this sentence is probably pretty obvious, and some may even wonder why I’m bothering to make a case for it when there’s no contest. But during the ten year developmental … Continue reading Final Fantasy XV’s Prompto is the Best
I swear, every new piece of information I hear confirms my believe that BioShock Infinite’s two part DLC, Burial at Sea, would have been better served as BioShock 4. Today’s confirmation of that belief comes in the form of a … Continue reading BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2 DLC to Feature Crossbow
BioShock 4 was announced! Sort of. Shared with the public today were two pieces of DLC for BioShock: Infinite. The first is a challenge map pack, which I don’t care about at all and will cease talking about immediately. The … Continue reading BioShock 4 Announced…Pretty Much: The Two-Part “Burial at Sea” DLC
Telltale Game’s The Walking Dead DLC, 400 Days, is the follow-up to the only game that has ever made me cry. As such, I had high hopes for this package that bridges the gap between seasons one and two, and … Continue reading Review from a Gaming Expert – The Walking Dead: The Game DLC
Well, Mass Effect fans, it’s been a fun, crazy journey, but we’ve finally received the closure we’ve wanted from the series. The final piece of DLC content, Citadel, has released, and in many ways is the epilogue to this fantastic … Continue reading Mass Effect: Citadel DLC – Third Time’s a Charm
My grandparents had an NES when I was little, so I got some playing time in with Mario 3, Dr. Mario, Chip ‘n’ Dale Rescue Rangers, Metroid and all the classics. But when the Super Nintendo came out and my dad picked one up, Street Fighter II was the first game I had for it — not Super Mario World like 95% of the rest of America.
SF II was interesting for a few reasons. It’s what got me started on the chess-like nature of fighting games. It was also the genesis (see what I did there?) for my love of video game music, as I would let some of the great stage themes play in the background while I worked on other things. Ryu, Ken, Guile and later Cammy’s stages became the accompanying soundtrack for life.
Why does all of this matter? Because Street Fighter x Tekken incorporates a long-standing 3D franchise into my 2D wheelhouse, and that’s just the way I like it. Continue reading “Review: Street Fighter x Tekken”
For those of you who are unaware Mass Effect 3, the conclusion to Bioware’s three part space epic, will be coming out this Tuesday. As such, I think this is a good time to cover the large amount of controversy that has sprung up around the game just weeks before its release. While there are many of you out there probably saying to yourselves, “Jeez, this again? I’ve already heard enough about this on <insert website you visit often>.” I can only say that while I agree with you, I’m in the camp of those who approve of what Bioware has been doing. I therefore find myself in a position where I’m in the minority and feel that all you people out there that dislike what Bioware has done need to either put up or shut up.
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about let’s start from the top. Recently Bioware released that their game would be including bi sexual characters and day 1 DLC. Two features of their new game that have, quite simply, caused more then its fair share of outrage on the internet. Forum goers and gaming websites have exploded with debate over both of the issues, and more then one media output has taken a side of these issues (only further lighting the fires of anger in gamers across the internet.) While most of the hate and vitrol is aimed at the announcement of the day 1 DLC, there has been a decent amount of hate aimed at the announcement of bi sex characters as well.
