Players, Characters, and Nier

As players, we want our games to acknowledge us. More specifically, we want to see our actions make some sort of impact upon the worlds displayed on our screens. Well, only up to a certain point that is. We neither want nor expect our games to acknowledge everything we do, especially when it comes to triggering their endings.  Instead, we want them to ignore us as we dally about finding extra loot and completing side-missions, leaving the ending to be triggered at our leisure. Most games do this, and we love them for it. However, it does make one wonder what would happen if a game didn’t do that. Well, it seems we can now find out.

Games I’d Like to See on the Switch

Can you believe that the Nintendo Switch is only a month or so away?! It seems like it just yesterday that we were all speculating about what the console will be like and whether or not that weird oval-screen controller was the real deal. Well, thankfully that controller turned out to be a hoax, and we’ve even got a few confirmed games to get excited about. That said though, there’s still plenty to think about in regard to the Switch, and for me it’s mostly about what games I’d like to see on it. Given how Nintendo has been treating anything that isn’t Zelda, Mario, or Splatoon these days, it may very well be that none of these will ever happen. A man can dream though, right?

YouTube Highlights: July 2016

The end of July is nearly upon us…and that means it’s time for another look back on our YouTube happenings from the month! We’ve been fantastically busy keeping up with Let’s Plays and playthroughs and general gaming fun, and here’s a round-up of just a few of our highlights.

At the start of July, The Duck of Indeed kicked things off with another entry in her playthrough of Kirby’s Return to Dream Land for the Wii. Here Kirby’s on a quest to help restore the Lor Starcutter, the broken-down ship of Magalor, which he needs to get home. Will Kirby’s super inhaling-powers enable him and his friends to help Magalor? Tune in to find out!

Letting Go of Generations

 

Is the concept of console generations becoming an obsolete notion? At first glance, the answer is “absolutely not!” Our current machines are definitely much more powerful that their predecessors after all. However, can we really call the games we’ve been playing these past 2 years “next-gen”? For the most part, I don’t really think so. So far, it feels like this generation has been lacking something something that we’ve had every other time. It’s taken a bit of time, but I think what we’re missing is that feeling that we’ve had a great leap forward.

Saturday Video Round Up: April 3 – 9

The following post was submitted by Derek from Gamer Crash. See more trailers and news at GamerCrash.com!

Congratulations, you’ve made it to Saturday once more! That means it’s time to dive into the latest and greatest video content from around the gaming industry, so kick back and crank that volume. Here’s a small sample to get us started.

Blizzard continues to impress me with thier mastery of the CG trailer. I mean, these guys have been doing it for ages in their games, but they’ve (thankfully) decided to create standalone videos detailing additional character stories for their newest IP, Overwatch. This week, we got a good glimpse at the sniper Widowmaker and the time travelling adventurer Tracer, as they go toe to toe. It honestly makes me wish there were a long length trailer…

Gearbox is preparing to unleash a brand new IP next month in the character-centric game, Battleborn. If you have no idea what I just said, watch the bootcamp trailer below for a rundown on the game, it’s story, and the many colorful faces you’ll be able to wreck things with once it’s out on store shelves.

I’ve also got new videos for Overwatch, The Division, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End 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…
