2018 video game hype!?

December 31st, 2017 No comments

2017 will likely be remembered as one of the top years in gaming, being put alongside other juggernauts likes 1991, 1997/98, 2001 and 2007. So many great games, some of the best examples of several genres, some games that will remain on top of the highest-rated games ever, forever. So how do you follow up a year like 2017? Honestly, I don’t think you can. But hopefully it still tries.

So I figured, now that I posted my GotY post, I would go and talk about my most hyped games of 2018. I’ll make it a top almost-10, because why not. I’ll also include a list of most noteworthy upcoming games, separating them between games I’m personally interested in for whatever reason and games I’m not particularly excited for. I may put some notes next to some of them.

Rules for this post: there are no rules. I will put in games that I’m pretty sure are coming in 2018, though I may get some wrong. I mean, my 2017 list had Scalebound as one of my most hyped games and look where that lead. Know that I am gonna make assumptions here.

So let’s go!

(quick note: this was written before the probably-coming-soon January Nintendo Direct, so if anything cool was announced there that fucks this post up… whatever)

E3 2017 impressions – Day 1: Nintendo

June 13th, 2017 No comments

So right now as I’m writing this intro we haven’t seen Nintendo’s Spotlight presentation, or the Treehouse stream. And what I’m currently saying is… Nintendo just has to show up and, whatever “winning E3” means, they’ll do it. It’s a pretty sad year when Ubisoft and MS had the best presentations so far.

Today: Nintendo’s showcase presentation, as well as a bit of the Treehouse stream since there’s apparently more announcements there.

Let’s go and talk about this! This is my second to last E3 post, next will be in a couple days with an overall impression of this E3 as a whole.

Pokemon Duel impressions

February 9th, 2017 No comments

And out of nowhere, right before releasing Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo also released Pokemon Duel. It was called Pokemon Co-master in Japan, and apparently didn’t even warrant Nintendo announcing it at all. I get that it’s The Pokemon Company releasing it, but they’re a subsidiary of Nintendo so… I dunno, seems a bit odd that it would get NO buzz.

I’m not really far into this yet but whatever. This is just an impressions post. I don’t think this kind of game really warrants a full-on review. Let’s go!

World of Final Fantasy review

November 9th, 2016 No comments


So I didn’t really inform myself all that much about this game before getting it. I saw some videos at E3 and screenshots and decided from those that I was slightly more excited for this than Final Fantasy 15. It just seemed more FF-like to me than what I had played of FF15 in both demos (both demos having slightly different gameplay, which means I have no idea what to expect of FF15 at this point). The stack thing seemed weird, but whatever, looked fun.

Read on and see if it’s good!

(this ended up being a much longer review than I was expecting… bolded some parts in the gameplay section for easier reading)

June 15th, 2016 No comments

Alright so my second to last E3 post, and fully focused on Nintendo because not much public-facing stuff really happened otherwise.

So these are impressions I wrote as I was watching their 2 days of presentations. Slightly edited to make them somewhat postable.

Let’s go!

Pokken Tournament review

March 28th, 2016 No comments

pokken tournament
This was always an idea people wanted from Pokemon, a fighting game where you play as the pokemon in what would look like the battles in the animu. And then it ended up being made by the people behind Tekken? Okay Nintendo, you have my attention.

Early looks at the game weren’t incredibly convincing, but as it came out in arcades and appeared in tournaments, it was clear there was something really unique about this game. I was pretty excited to check it out.

So read on and see if Pokken is the pokemon fighting game we always needed.

Pokemon Y / X review

November 9th, 2013 No comments

pokemon Y / X
I’ve been playing Pokemon since the day the Red/Blue came out in America in 1998, but was a fan for about a year before just because of all the hype it was getting. To this day Red/Blue is the only game where I caught ‘em all legitimately (minus Mew, there were never any events that I knew of to get it here, so I gamesharked that one), and Silver/Gold is the last one I played all the way through to the end (I don’t think I beat the Elite 4 in any other up until Y). I’ve always been a fan of the series, and it’s one that just keeps refining its formula over time.

So this is the new generation of Pokemon, and the hype was pretty high. I’ll just make this a quick little post, since I think by now everyone knows if the game is good or bad anyways.

…So let’s go!

Music review – Powerglove’s “Saturday Morning Apocalypse”

September 28th, 2010 No comments

Well that took some time to come out. It’s been teased, and got release dates and delays, but we can finally listen to it.

If you don’t know about Powerglove, here’s a lowdown: They’re an awesome band that covers oldschool video game music, but with a great power metal style. They’re probably the best band in the video game music cover sub-genre. Not only do the cover the songs, but they take the tunes and they add in their own style and compositions, making the songs not only recognizable, but also making them their own thing at the same time.

This time, rather than doing video game music, they went through their childhood memories of watching cartoons and are doing covers of their theme songs, which is a fun idea. And for the first time they have a record label for their album, so you’ll be able to find it at local music stores, which is pretty awesome.

So read on and see if they’re as good with cartoon songs as they are with video game tunes!
