The original Nidhogg escaped me entirely, so I went into Messhof Games' sequel on the Nintendo Switch with zero expectations. All I knew was that it was a one-on-one "fencing" game where the objective is to reach the opposing side of the screen. Nidhogg 2 is essentially more of that, I suppose, but forgoes the … Continue reading [REVIEW] Nidhogg 2

Starter Tips for Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization
Hollow Realization is the latest video game installment based on the wildly popular anime series Sword Art Online.

I'm a couch co-op guy, but I've had some great times playing games online with friends as well. Gaming is more fun when you're around like-minded people, and I understand what Nintendo is going for here, but I don't quite get why they (as in the developers) would opt to leave out a feature that … Continue reading Sonic Lost World will not feature online multiplayer for Wii U, but will for 3DS version. Why is no one embracing online multiplayer for this console?
The summer drought continues with Halo 3! Time to work the back catalog!
Summer is always a slow time for new releases, so I usually spend it catching up on my back catalog rather than picking up whatever comes out.

Time to work the back catalog!
A pretty game dressed up in a TapOut shirt and Axe Body Spray or an innovative FPS? How do you feel about Titanfall?
My roommate and I were talking about Titanfall the other day and neither one of us really care for the competitive PVP multiplayer aspect of FPS games (and more often than not, the people who play them).
