Nintendo made it official via their website recently that showed Mario’s profile. In the image below it says “実は昔、「配管工」のお仕事もしていたこともあるらしい……。” and this roughly translates to something like “Actually, there seems to have been work as a plumber a long time ago”.  Before that, it mentions how Mario has done different things of late, and honestly this […]

Tonight at the E-Sports Festival Hong Kong’s finals a new challenger appeared for SFV.  It was pretty easy to see this one coming as she popped up in Ed’s story mode way back when.  From the looks of the video she seems to play very very similar to Rose.  The video shows some really interesting […]

Sega recently announced a new Hokuto no Ken, also known as Fist of the North Star in the west,  game that’s being developed by the same team that brought us the popular Yakuza series.  The game seems to a brawler, but also perhaps a bit of open-world (read open-city).

Square Enix officially announced FFXV on PC.  They’ve also release a trailer featuring some of the big additions to this version of the game. The most enticing to me is that it will include all previously release DLC.  I never dove into that rabbit hole on consoles, and so it won’t be too tough to […]

I might be in that very small category that actually enjoyed Fear Effect for the original Playstation (release Feb. 2000).  It was a an action-adventure game that used a lot of cel-shading.  Which for the time was still an incredibly new technique.  The background were made from looping full-motion video, rather than the pre-rendered 2D […]

A final review after the early impressions.  Well my friends, the time has come and passed, and Ala Mhigo has been liberated. This is the second expansion for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and it could easily be its own Final Fantasy(FF) game. I will also note that this is the first time I […]
