Upcoming Game Releases | January 2017

It has occurred to me in the past that I have no idea what games are coming out most months. It is time to rectify that and bring you all with me into the future! Near the beginning of every month I’m going to list out the upcoming games (generally in order) with a video and perhaps some of my thoughts on them if I have any. As a caveat I’m usually not going to include ports. Unless I start having...[Read More]

Rico’s Games of the Year (2016)

I generally feel like there is some level of pressure to have surprises on a GOTY list. I’m gonna be flat out with you, you won’t be finding any of those today (I imagine). The structure will be pretty simple, first I’m listing all the games I played this year. It’s not super diverse in 2016 but there are a fair number of games on this list that I really enjoyed. The ones I...[Read More]

Who is the Deadliest Pokemon?

Gotta Catch em’ All! (Or they’ll kill you) Before you watch the video, try and guess who you think it is? It isn’t super hard to come up with reasons why they are wrong. That said I loved this little thought experiment. I’m going to slightly spoil it by saying it isn’t Arceus. Now you’ve only got a few hundred other options to choose from. But if I had to pick a...[Read More]

Civilization VI Patch Live | Dubbed “Fall 2016” Update

Civilization 6 gets even better at consuming your days. You wouldn’t know it by the number of hours I’ve played Civilization 6. But I really like this game. It currently stands as my favorite iteration of a series that started in 1991. Just holy cow! So many series I like have been around for just obscene lengths of time. Anyways, Civ VI is great. I highly recommend you pick it up if y...[Read More]

Early Thoughts | Dragon Quest Builders

I’ve finally finished the first chapter of Dragon Quest Builders. I’ve been playing it a few hours every night since release. When I first saw Builders I presumed it would be a fairly simple cashin on a popular formula with a popular franchise. Turns out I was wrong! I’ve been having a stupid good time with this game and it might be the best game of this genre that I’ve pla...[Read More]

I liked it.

Politicat Review

Most Accurate Representation of Politics 2016

You'll be spending the rest of your life doing nothing but campaigning. Ignoring your constituents for those sweet stacks of cash and the ever present allure of votes. In many ways Politicat is so accurate to modern politics that it's almost terrifying. Luckily they deaden the blow with some of the cutest cats you'll see in a videogame this year.

Former Sony Exec Explains Dropping Vita Support

What could have been. You might have noticed in the past that Sony’s support for the Vita has been “light” to put it mildly. I’ve often wondered what the reason for this was. We’ve now got as good of an answer as we’ll likely ever get. Former CEO of SCEA, Jack Tretton, has explained it fairly bluntly with IGN. Thankfully they’ve quoted the important bit fo...[Read More]

Ubisoft is best-selling publisher in 2016

As reported by MCV, and genuinely to my surprise, Ubisoft is currently the frontrunner for sales in 2016. This applies to the US, the EU, Canada, and Australia apparently. I’ll get back to you once we see the sales for Antarctica but odds are good they’ve cornered that market. The big mover this year is the Division which absolutely crushed it for Day One sales. And by crushing it I me...[Read More]

I loved it!

World of Warcraft | Legion Review

Arguably the best expansion to release for World of Warcraft. It doesn't solve every issue but the majority of issues I have with MMOs are addressed here.

Legion Companion App is an Altoholics Dream

For those of you playing Legion, you already know that it is pretty friggin sweet.  But you might also have noticed that running a ton of characters at once is a bit taxing. It looks like this won’t be the case much longer! The companion app is set to drop this Tuesday which is great news because that’s also when I go back to work. It’s amusing to me because Liz and I have been b...[Read More]

Early Thoughts | World of Warcraft : Legion

Life is a little bit rough for me at the moment. But I did want to talk briefly on my thoughts about the Legion Pre-Patch Event and the game thus far. The Event leading up to the launch was great! The story goes that the Legion is finally done screwing around elsewhere and has come to finally take down Azeroth. In the past we pissed off a few of the lesser Legion leaders, which is to say some big ...[Read More]
