Smashing Success? Smash Wii U (P)review

We tried the portable, but now it’s time for the console: Smash Bros Wii U. I’m not writing this as a review quite yet, but as a preview piece since I’ve only had about ten hours with the game, all solo since the servers won’t go live until launch day. While I was provided a preview [...]

Hyrule Warriors Twilight DLC Arrives November 27

Eijii Aonuma just revealed who our newest Hyrule Warrior is: Twili Midna, from the ending of Twilight Princess! He also revealed that the DLC is being released on November 27, and apparently we’re getting an impressive new costume for Link, in addition to a new map, weapons, and other costumes. I guess I’ll need to get [...]

11/5 Nintendo Direct Talks Amiibo, Majora’s Mask 3DS

We’re finally getting some news on Nintendo’s upcoming Amiibo functions for games beyond Smash Bros. While some of it is very minor additions (like costumes for certain racers in Mario Kart 8), some add meatier content (like a new weapon, the Spinner, for Link Amiibos in Hyrule Warriors). A few other games are noted as getting content, but no [...]

New to MOBAs- Solstice Arena

Consider this part two to my experiment in introducing people to MOBAs. As fun as Heroes of the Storm was, the community outside of the forums was awful. Much like my thoughts when playing Starcraft or other Blizzard titles aside from Hearthstone, I felt that the game’s community really prevented me from enjoying the game. That’s [...]

Hyrule Warriors Master Quest Adventure Guide

Since many of you seemed to enjoy the original Adventure mode guide, I figured I’d start working on one for the Master Quest, so consider this a work in progress. Once again, I’ll mostly be aiming for the unique rewards, like weapons and costumes. Character basics for the original cast should be learned from the [...]

We’ve got a deluge of new Smash Bros Wii U information out today! 8 player local play (using 3DS as controllers and only on select stages), DLC character Mewtwo coming to those who buy both versions of the game (hint at future DLC characters?), a sort of board game, video clips of fighters, access to certain parts [...]

FFXIV: Tips for Getting Started with Gathering

Before hopping on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn‘s gathering wagon, ask yourselves whether you like farming or not. Are you the type of player who can mindlessly click your mouse while staring at the monitor like a zombie for hours? If that applies to you, then hop on– let’s start a gathering class. Disclaimer: [...]

League of Legends: “Plot is Overrated” Revisited

Back in March of this year Tom Abernathy, Riot Games’ narrative Lead, and Richard Rouse, a design lead for Microsoft Games, ruffled more than a few feathers with some comments made at the annual Game Developers Conference. Abernathy’s most memorable statement, “Plot is highly overrated,” made headlines throughout the gaming world. His words provocative not only [...]

It is finally here and it’s what fans have been waiting for– the first official trailer for the upcoming patch in Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Patch 2.4: Dreams Of Ice, was released only 5 hours ago and does it deliver! The trailer itself does a great job at showcasing the new features [...]

FFXIV: Tips for Getting Started with Crafting

Is it worthwhile to level crafting in Final Fantasy XIV? The answer is both yes and no. Crafting enables you to repair your gear anywhere– anytime you want to. You can also earn a bit of gil from crafted goods. Crafting also means you don’t have to look for people to meld materia in your [...]

ArcheAge: Introduction to Trade Runs

Trade runs are an integral part of ArcheAge– driving the economy, providing unique materials, and encouraging small and medium scale PvP. Whether you’re a farmer, a crafter, or a pirate, trade packs and the potentially perilous paths their carriers traverse help shape your game. At its heart, a trade run is exactly what it sounds [...]

ArcheAge: The Quickest One Month Ever! What Makes This Game So Addicting?

It’s a charming realization when something as simple as planting a mushroom and being able to harvest it in a PvP zone without dying is luxuriously satisfying, like that very first MMO you played killing a boss in a dungeon without a clue as to whether or not you were wearing the right gear or [...]

RIFT: Interview with Trion Worlds Senior Community Manager Eric “Ocho” Cleaver

Two weekends ago I had an awesome opportunity interviewing Trion Worlds ArcheAge Producer Victoria Voss & Assistant Producer Amanda Fry. Following that momentous occasion, this weekend we caught up with Trion Worlds RIFT Senior Community Manager Eric “Ocho” Cleaver! Read More…

Help Us Help Kids– Win a T-Shirt! Junkies Nation Extra Life Donation Drive

These kids are facing things like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and a plethora of other injuries and diseases. Local Children’s Miracle [...]

Destiny: Are the Updates Living Up to the Promises?

Activision long ago gave promise that Destiny was set to be a franchise that would stick around for a long time. More specifically, 10 years worth of support. Have actions been taken on this ambitious commitment? In short, yes. There have been a total of three patches and several hot fixes towards Bungie’s new game [...]

Starcraft 2 Code S Championships Conclude

The Starcraft 2 GSL Season 3 Code S championships have just come to an end this past weekend in South Korea. For the first time in two years a Terran claimed the title. Lee Shin “Innovation” Hyung, the Terran, vanquished Eo Yoon “Soo” Su, a Zerg, in match six of the best of seven. Innovation [...]

Review: The Flash Pilot

Tuesday night saw the premiere of The Flash on the CW, and it was a welcome surprise. The show’s origins on the network lie within the CW’s other DC show, Arrow, which visited Barry Allen and Central City for two second season episodes. From there, it would be easy to assume that this show would [...]

Putting the “Guild” Back in Guild Wars 2

We understand that games change, much like we understand Guild Wars 2 is not the original Guild Wars. They’re two very different games. But for a number of Guild Wars players, Guild Wars 2 is like the little brother who can’t quite live up to the expectation to be like his older sibling. Don’t get [...]

Random Free Mobile Game of the Month: Charm King

Welcome to the first edition of Random Free Mobile Game of the Month! Before diving into details, let me emphasize that these are not advertisements for any particular game.

Nintendo November: Smash Wii U, Amiibo, and More

As if the release of Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros for 3DS wasn’t keeping Nintendo fans busy enough, Nintendo’s just announced that November 21 is the day Smash Bros Wii U and the Amiibo figures will release. Not only will Smash support Amiibo figures, but so will Mario Kart 8, Yoshi’s Wooly World (looking at an early 2015 release), and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which is looking [...]

Shadow of Revan SWTOR Expansion Launching December 9th

BioWare announced the next digital expansion coming for Star Wars: The Old Republic today. It’s called Shadow of Revan, and yep, as you might have guessed– Revan’s back with a new set of fanatical followers for us to take down. The expansion will consist of 5 new levels (bringing the cap up to level 60), [...]

Destiny Review

Finally, Bungie unleashes their heavily-anticipated title, Destiny, upon the public. Just in time because the gamers were hungry for a true next-gen game, but did this adventure really satisfy our appetites? I imagine that some bought it for the loot grind, competitive multiplayer, the MMORPG aspects, or simply because it’s a Bungie game. Whatever the [...]

FFXIV: Are Melee Unwanted?

The other day I did some light reading on Dragoons, and I have to admit that I know nothing about Dragoons despite having a level 37 Dragoon for months (I only leveled it to get Blood for Blood). One reason why I never really got back to Dragoon was because the first 34 levels was [...]

ArcheAge: Producer Interview Video, Massive Bot Bans & Player Numbers Released!

Racing to make sure all of my ArcheAge foundations were in place before the original release date of RIFT 3.0: Nightmare Tide on October 8th has been head down, Ferrin cat tail up, but yesterday Trion Worlds Senior Community Manager Eric “Ocho” Cleaver announced the postponing of Nightmare Tide to October 22nd. Ah, a breather. I [...]
