Kova: A New Metroidvania styled RPG

A Kickstarter campaign has just launched for a game known as “Kova”. It’s an action RPG in the Metroidvania style and appears to be drawing much of its influence from the “Metroid” portion of that combination. “Metroidvania” can mean a lot of things though, so what exactly is this game like?

Three Surprising Weeks with Breath of the Wild

It’s been just over three weeks since I started playing Breath of the Wild, and it would be quite impossible to even make a guess as to how many hours I have dedicated to this game thus far.  In that time, while I have managed to make some actual progress in the game’s story, the majority of my time has been spent exploring, and I have come to appreciate the sheer number of surprises Breath of the Wild has to offer.  Of course, if you don’t want these surprises to be spoiled, you may want to look away….

[REVISTITED] Why Play Destiny?

With the “Age of Triumph” nearly upon us, the time has come for the greater Destiny community to make their return to the game, perhaps for the last time before the release of Destiny 2. With that in mind, now seems like the perfect time to revisit at least some of the reasons why so many of us have stuck with the game for nearly three years now.

Saturday Video Round Up: March 19 – 25

Saturday is finally here and that means it’s time for a brand new Round Up, bringing you the best gameplay and trailers from around the industry. So kick up your feet and crank the volume, here’s a small taste of what waits for you below the jump.

It was a big week for the folks at NetherRealm Studios as they released a bunch of new trailers for their superhero brawler, Injustice 2. First, come get a glimpse at Wonder Woman’s nemesis, Cheetah, then stay for Supergirl’s side of the story. Who knows, perhaps you’ll also get a glimpse of an evil lightning throwing bad guy as well.

Titanfall 2 is still chugging right along and their next major (and free!) downloadable content expansion is less than a week away. The fan favorite map Colony rejoins the series along with a ton of new content and Prime Titans as well.

I’ve also got new videos for Prey, Overwatch, Destiny and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

Initial Impressions of Mass Effect: Andromeda

Despite having a wholly exhausting Tuesday (the 21st – release day), I was determined to enjoy all that Mass Effect: Andromeda could offer that evening. The game downloaded in just a couple hours (score one for the new PC!).  After all my nighttime chores, I settled in, only to be met by…uh…sputtering? Well, not immediate sputtering. The game loaded up fine, and I created a new female Ryder. After that is when the sputtering started. The initial opening scenes cut in and out like a buffering video. It happened intermittently every handful of seconds or so, but then things smoothed out after the title card appeared. Once the story began, it looked like I was good to go. No sputtering, no “buffering.”

Narcosis Seems to be Anything But Sleepy

March 2017 has been a important month for games thus far. It’s been high-profile release after high-profile release so far, and with the nextDark Souls III dlc and final Destiny live event set to drop next week, it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down anytime soon. With all these major releases dropping one after another it can be easy to forget that there’s plenty going on in the independent scene as well, but there are some games that manage to break through nonetheless. Narcosis is one of them.
