Why Didn’t Nintendo Just Tell Us the Truth about the NX?

March 26, 2016 0

Recently some photos of the Nintendo NX controllers leaked onto reddit and then around the rest of the internet, causing quite a bit of stir right away. There was a lash back from fans about how the controller looked and their doubts about how comfortable or practical it would actually […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: Bully

March 24, 2016 0

I was doing some thinking about Bully after I wrote up the recent article on the newest PS2 ports going to the PS4. Bully is a game that’s not only close to my heart, but it’s also very misrepresented. Sure it has a loyal cult following of fans that earned […]

A Look at Fallout 4’s Automatron DLC

March 22, 2016 0

The immensely popular RPG Fallout 4 has released their first DLC today by the name of Automatron. This is of course just the first in a line of coming DLC that Bethesda plans to launch in this coming year. Just like much of the DLC in Fallout 3 and Fallout: […]

Why Firewatch is on Top of the Charts

March 18, 2016 0

When one typically thinks about video games, there are a few images that generally come to mind right away. Maybe it’s the red shirted plumber hopping across impossible levels, a rugged soldier running into the fray with guns blazing or maybe the brave knight and his comrades questing to slay […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: The Warriors Series

March 11, 2016 0

Ok, so technically this is a game series – two game series if we’re going to be really technical – and not just one specific title. In the case of Koei Tecmo’s addicting Dynasty/Samurai Warriors titles I’m willing to bend my own rules however. These games get a bad rep […]

The End of the Fable

March 8, 2016 0

It was announced yesterday that the newest game in the Fable series, Fable Legends, has been completely canned. This isn’t much of a surprise really, with the lack of updates from the developers and how unknown it was; even in the gaming public. The real surprise with this news comes […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: Jade Empire

February 24, 2016 0

When I say the name Bioware, what’s the first thing you think of? Mass Effect? Dragon Age? Baldur’s Gate for the nostalgic ones out there maybe? I think of Jade Empire; possibly the most under the radar game that they have ever released. In a time before EA tried to strangle […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: Legend of Dragoon

February 9, 2016 0

The Playstation One has a magical library. It really covers every single genre that you could imagine and satisfies every craving that you have – and some that you didn’t even know you had. There is an arguable amount of Playstation One titles that could be considered underrated just because […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: Dying Light

January 29, 2016 0

With The Following right around the corner, I can’t help but talk about Dying Light – A lot. The funny thing is, despite the fact that it was considered a breakout hit by many trusted sources like IGN and Game Informer, not too many people actually know about it. Even […]

The Linkle Debate: Fully Fledged Protagonist or Just a Link Rip Off?

January 27, 2016 0

Anyone that knows Legend of Zelda has probably heard the clamoring for a female version of the protagonist. As a woman myself I don’t really understand the point, seeing how we have plenty of awesome female characters already in the series.  Midna, Saria, Ruto, Impa and don’t forget the premier […]

Spotlight Game of the Week: Brave Fencer Musashi

January 21, 2016 0

It’s that time again to scour through the cast out, forgotten and misunderstood. So many games lie in wait for their opportunity to rise up and claim that they are better than what we think of them and it’s my duty to liberate them from that bondage. This week focuses […]

Spotlight Game of the Week – Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

January 14, 2016 0

I’ve been doing some thinking lately since I began writing The Retro Corner, and it occurred to me that there are a lot of older games that are obscure and get no attention; regardless of how good the game is. Not only that though, there are a lot of games […]

The Freedom Video Games Gives You

January 9, 2016 0

I rented Just Cause 3 recently from Redbox. I was excited to play the game, but not convinced enough to pick up a copy just yet. It was only supposed to be a 24 hour rental, but before I knew it I had been playing the game for 3 days. […]

The Retro Corner: Overpriced Nostalgia

January 7, 2016 0

The games of today have so much more content than what was ever possible in the retro era. Gigantic maps, increased frame rates and the most realistic graphics technologically possible. So it makes sense that you would have to shell out $50 to $60 bucks per game. What I’m really […]
