Before we get started, do me a favor and count to 180. It’s okay, I’ll wait. Three minutes feels a bit longer than anticipated, yeah? This is how long the initial load time is every time the newest spin-off in the Neptunia series launches on my PS4, and, likewise, I felt it was appropriate to stress that at the beginning of this review. I’m not sure why the game is front-loaded like this, but it’s certainly the wrong way to make a first impression (and a second, third, fourth, etc.).

Thankfully, the game hidden behind the loading screen boss is pretty decent — albeit with a list of caveats.

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

The hits keep on coming this year, but rather than running down the list of things hampering my mood this evening, let’s focus on the good instead, shall we? It’s the weekend. The bright flare shot in the darkness; the arms of the weekday providing a warm hug; the killer in your bedroom who thinks you’re pretty when you sleep.

How will you be spending it?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

My truck is back in the shop, I just failed an exam I drove three hours to take, and my Twitter account was hacked within the last hour, sending around 100 spam DMs to random people about expensive sunglasses. How is your weekend starting off?

One Tamriel is the Improvement Elder Scrolls Online Needed, But it’s Still Missing Something

When my friends and I jumped in to Elder Scrolls Online at launch, there was a unanimous sense of disappointment in the air. As we created our characters and ended up questing on opposite sides of the world, we realized something: for being an MMO, they certainly made it difficult to play with other people.

CA! Radio Episode 119: A New Path…

This week Chuck Zodl and I discuss the beauty of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and their respective DLCs. He goes in-depth with his thoughts on the current For Honor open beta, Yakuza 0, and Resident Evil VII, while I ponder my revisiting of Elder Scrolls Online and Neverwinter. On top of that, we chat about this week’s gaming news and discuss our favorite games that have crossed over from other media.

As always, if you have ANY questions for us, leave them here in the comments or over on Twitter. We’d be happy to answer them during the next recording.

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

The dastardly weekdays have been captured, burned alive, and hidden deep within the cold womb of the ocean. And like a phoenix rising from the ashes, our temporary hero adorned in masterfully crafted mithril armor, The Weekend.

World of Warcraft Expansion Warlords of Draenor Now Part of the Base Game

With the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Legion scheduled for an August 30th release, Blizzard has decided to include the current expansion, Warlords of Draenor, to the core game’s $20 price tag.

That’s $20 for World of Warcraft and its Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, Mists of Pandaria, and Warlords of Draenor expansions, plus a free month of paid game time. Not bad if you’ve been on the fence for the last 12 years.

Blizzard is also offering a free redemption code for World of Warcraft to anyone who attends a screening of the upcoming Warcraft film, which releases on June 10th. You know, the film directed by Duncan Jones… the son of David Bowie? I can’t wait.
