I think I have a problem. Either I am buying too many games or I don’t have enough time to play them. Anyway, let me share my list of games I’ve started but have yet to finish. 

  • Disgaea D2
  • Bayonetta
  • Final Fantasy Type-0
  • Ni No Kuni
  • Dragon Age Origins
  • Mark of the Ninja
  • Persona 4 Golden
  • Freedom Wars
  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Watch Dogs
  • Sly Cooper: Theives in Time
  • Remember Me
  • Metro Last Light
  • Lone Survivor 
  • Dragon’s Crown
  • Muramasa Rebirth
  • Halo 4
  • Assassins Creed 4: Black Flag
  • Olli Olli 2
  • Super Mario 3D World
  • Paper Mario
  • Grand Theft Auto V
  • Mirror’s Edge
  • Vanquish
  • Velocity 2X
  • Papo & Yo

Is there something wrong with me? I can’t be the only one that has a list this long. Where should I start first if I want to even attempt clearing out this list?



Is it wrong that I get giddy every time a new Arkham Knight trailer is released? Does the word giddy make me seem like a prepubescent child? Probably but who cares, I’m a geek, I love this shit!

Anyway the new “All Who Follow You” Trailer shows off the four characters developer Rocksteady has been teasing this weekend. The gameplay is something Rocksteady is calling “Dual Play”. During specific moments in the game you will be able to switch between Batman and one of his allies in real time like GTA V and pull off tag team moves. I can’t scream through words but that sound fricken awesome.

Batman Arkham Knight arrives this June 23.

I like this. License games don’t come out often anymore, but they seem to be getting better in quality. This new Mad Max game looks to have everything you would want from a game with a post apocalyptic wasteland. Psychopathic mutants, customizable badass cars, changing environment, in depth fighting system. I’m in.

I also like that publishers are not binding these games to their movies or whatever they are based off of. While both the game and movie come out within the same year, the game comes out several months after the movie arrives. Also, the game isn’t based off the new movie, so the developers have no restrictions on where they want to go.

Mad Max arrives September 1, 2015.


The title of this post pretty much says it all. I’m done paying $60 for a game, especially day one. I have a job that just gets me bye and school I pay out of pocket. So like most gamers, there’s not much money to spare.l

Games are expensive. Not only that but if you are a console gamer like me, you unfortunately have to pay a subscription. It’s better I play the free games I get every month.

A few months ago, in February, I began debating what my next purchase was going to be. Whether I would buy Evolve or The Order: 1886. When it came down to it, I bought Evolve, season and all.

In a press event today, Nintendo announced that they now have a partnership with DeNA, a Japanese mobile game company, to start development of new smartphone games featuring Nintendo characters. All games made by DeNA will be original games and not simply ports of existing Nintendo games. Nintendo made sure to note that this move is not a sign that they are moving away from dedicated video game systems.

Nintendo-mobile

Nintendo hasn’t said much about it’s new console, expect that its codenamed “NX” and will be next generation hardware with a “new concept”. More will be revealed next year in 2016.

My theory is that this might be a successor to the 3DS, which might also take advantage of Nintendo’s new deal with DeNa. It would be far to soon to announce a successor to the Wii U, especially when it seems to have just found its stride.

I don’t really know how to feel about Nintendo making smartphone games. I somewhat feel like they are only doing so to satisfy investor interest. However, I also feel like they are taking advantage of the situation to change the quality of games that come out of the mobile market. It would be interesting to see if Nintendo could change the whole landscape of mobile game, especially if they are going to be paid games. They were so adamant about not going into the mobile market so gamers should be in for an interesting year.

I’m a big fan of the stories in the Mortal Kombat series. Mostly because as a fighting game they actually try. What intrigues me the most is the fact that this game takes place 25 years after the last one.

Looking at this trailer, there is a whole new set of  characters at play and a few returning that raise some questions. Mortal Kombat is definitely a game to looking forward to. Especially considering I’m not a hardcore fighting game fan, the story something that has me interested.

This game makes me squeal like a pig every time. I don’t have much more to say other than that.

Ummmm. Shit got real. Thrills and chills. Batmobile …

A new game in the Dissidia Final Fantasy franchise is coming to Japanese arcades. The series is best known for bringing together heroes and villains from all over the Final Fantasy franchise and being primarily on the PSP.

The new game brings updated graphics and a new 3 v 3 battle system. The trailer also shows off new character Y’Shtola from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. So there might be some more new characters coming.

Usually with Japanese arcades releases, more than likely they come to consoles. Best bet is a PS4 or PS Vita release or both. Square Enix is expected to reveal more April 10th.

Looks like I’m going to have to finish up Persona 4: Golden now because this has elevated my interest in the series. I am by no means a big time Persona fan but damn this trailer looks sick. This is the first real hint of what the game is about and I’m liking the whole tone of Persona 5 with it’s thief like protagonist and characters that all seem to have dual identities. Not much is known about the main character, but he is a winner in my book already. That allure of mystery is really working for him.

 

Pokkén Tournament is definitively a Pokémon fighting game made by Tekkén creator Katsuhiro Harada and it looks weird and fantastic. Go ahead and skipped to  8:46 mark for the games newest trailer and anyone can finish watching the rest of the video to see the live gameplay.

The best part about the newest trailer is the confirmation that players will be able to choose Pokémon of all shapes and sizes and most importantly  fight as Pokémon other than fighting types. It is interesting that this game looks more like Cyberconnect Naruto games than Tekkén. Especially with the outlandish movements and camera facing the players back.

Still no Wii U release announced but it is unlikely that it won’t come to the console or the west.
