With 2018 almost upon us, there are many games that we’ve enjoyed this year, but that means even MORE releases to look forward to next year! There are even articles — like this one from Sports Betting Dime — published that discuss which anticipated new games are expected to sell really well in 2018, and I have a feeling that a few Atlus games will make that discussion. On Christmas Eve, Atlus held their Persona live stream, which was 75 minutes of awesome insanity that featured news about the upcoming Persona 5 anime, Blu-ray sets, the official canon name for the Persona 5 protagonist (you know, Joker), and the two upcoming Persona: Dancing Night game titles. Trust me, that stream was full of goofy-wackyness!

Upon it’s release, No Man’s Sky was a game you either loved or hated, depending on your gaming tastes and your interpretation of the features advertised by the developers (or the gaming media’s assumptions of features not announced by the developers). Well, on November 25th, Hello Games, the team behind the game that went on radio silence after the game’s release, promised a forthcoming “Foundation Update” for the PC and PS4 versions of the game that would expand and add new features to the title, as well as serve as the first of many free expansions to No Man’s Sky. The dev team came through with that promise as the Foundation update went live on November 27th. Continue reading “Redemption, Thy Name is ‘No Man’s Sky’s’ Foundation Update…”

Since Sega debuted this game series back in 2005 on the PlayStation 2, the Yakuza games have brought a unique flavor of open-world brawling to consoles worldwide. Think of it as modern Grand Theft Auto meets old-school River City Ransom set in Japan. I recall Area5 (you know, the former “1Up Show” people) referring to the series as “Shenmue done right.” Anyway, the PlayStation 4-exclusive Yakuza 6 is coming out soon in Japan, and it’s been reported by a Japanese gaming publication that New Japan Pro Wrestling stars will be appearing in the game as a rival gang. I love this; I want this; ALL of this; IN MY FACE! Continue reading “New Japan Pro Wrestling Invades The Upcoming ‘Yakuza 6’ Game”

Many of us know (and believe) that the first video game console Sony made was the PlayStation. However, he truth is that the PlayStation was actually Sony’s first console that they released. It turns out that before the PlayStation (even before their ill-fated collaboration with Nintendo) was, this lovely piece of gaming tech. This console,simply labeled as “Prototype TV Game Machine”) used — or WOULD HAVE used — cards and cartridges, and since this console dates to the 1970’s, the games would have likely been relatively simple. However, if you want a Japanese write-up on the exhibition it was shown at, here you go. Continue reading “Sony FINALLY Releases Their 1970’s Console Prototype”
Calling “Lobos Jr” is one of the most talented Souls players is an understatement—he once beat the game upside down! He’s been going through Bloodborne’s newest DLC, The Old Hunters, and he recently, he pulled off the incredible feat of beating the insanely-difficult first boss — and probably the hardest boss fight in the game, Ludwig — on New Game+++++++ (that’s 7+’s, by the way) only using his fists.
