No vault of mine, well maybe Bethesda’s. It’s the all Fallout episode where we review the recent “Fallout76” and take a look back at the series as a whole. From Isometric beginnings to first-person failures, it’s a trip through the wasteland. So strap on your power armour and leave your morality in the ’50s, it’s our most post-apocalyptic episode yet.Read More
Soulcalibur 6 is the hotness right now, believe it or not. And with the latest game comes its trademark character creation mode. While not as robust as Soulcalibur IV and V’s tools, it’s still pretty awesome and makes for some lovely pop culture cameos.
When you bring up 3D weapon-based fighting games, the SoulCalibur series can’t be beaten. From its remarkably fast-paced gameplay to its baritone-laden announcer, it’s a franchise worth following if you so much have an inkling of love for good fighting games.
However, the tale of souls & swords that is eternally retold has its fans that can’t decide which is the better game: SoulCalibur or SoulCalibur II.
Good ol’ Capcom recently released a collection of their finest beat-em-ups that in one retro-collection for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Unfortunately they can’t put in licensed fares, which means no Aliens vs Predator, no Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and no Punisher. But what we ended up with are worthy timewasters that should be on every retro gamer’s shelf.
To celebrate, let’s rank each of these 7 beat-em-ups based on their importance in the company’s legacy of close-ranged pugilism.
What else is there to say about Mega Man (or Rock Man if you’re from Japan)? He is Capcom’s original mascot with the run-and-gun fun and also innovates with the boss weapon-stealing powerup. While the X and Zero games superceded and improved upon the weapon-stealing formula, you can’t forget your 8-bit roots.
But which Mega Man game is the best? Which Blue Bomber battle royale is the one with the best stage ideas? The best weapons catalogue? The best aesthetics?
As of right now, there’s a new internet trend where Mario’s nemesis Bowser and Mario’s love interest Princess Peach combine to form one attractive-looking dragon turtle human hybrid. So how did this came to be? Why is this happening to us? Read on and find out, dear Last King fans.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is a success even before it launched. I bought my copy, finished it, and thought it was a great first step in making Spider-Man games again. I even agree with most of the points in the many Amazing reviews of Insomniac’s latest. Some things do need work (which I’ll bring up later), but it’s a decent jaunt into comic book action gaming territory and is on-par with the Batman Arkham quadrology.
If you’re going into Shadow Of The Tomb Raider thinking that it’s going to break & heighten your standards to a transcendent level, you’d be sorely mistaken. But at the very least, you’ll find a much-improved and refined action adventure game that stays true to the graverobbing and spelunking spirit from the past two Tomb Raider games.
In a perfect world, I would be writing a glowing review about the new Predator movie that’s out this week. But we’re in this timeline, and the actual film is a half-assed attempt at capturing the nostalgia and action beats of the first two Predator films.
Happy 35th anniversary, Mario!
The Super Mario titles from Nintendo are arguably the most influential and iconic games around. Anyone who tells you otherwise is probably lying through their teeth.
Without the mind of Nintendo designer Shigeru Miyamoto at the helm of these mothership games, there wouldn’t be a Nintendo at all in the late 80s and the 90s. In fact, Nintendo and Mario were the sole saviours of the video game industry; countless retrospectives have mentioned this, so there’s no history lesson here.
