E3 Rumors and Predicitons: Nintendo

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is now a week away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

To the surprise of nobody, Nintendo has been getting there family-friendly backsides handed to them in the console market. And although I, like many other gamers out there, love Nintendo, it seems as though the future might be grim for Nintendo. Of course, Nintendo is still sitting on mounds upon mounds of that Wii money, the WiiU continues to under perform compared to the Xbox One and PS4. However, with the success of Mario Kart 8 Nintendo just might be on the long awaited upward swing  we’ve all been hoping for since the launch of the WiiU. During E3, I think they have a real chance to leave us all in awe.

E3 Rumors and Predictions: Microsoft

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is now a week away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

In a recent turn of events, Microsoft has started making a massive push to even the playing field with Sony. They’re striking the price of the Xbox One to $400 by getting rid of the Kinect effective June 9th. And although that is the business equivalent of giving the middle finger to developers working on Kinect-centric titles, this move will actually make Xbox One a more viable console. Simply put, the vast majority of gamers do not want a console for TV features, they want it for gaming. And up until now, the PS4 has been winning the console war because it is a video game console first. But, that aside, Halo 5 has also been announced. So that begs the question, what are we going to see at E3 this year? I have some thoughts, come and humor me for a minute.

E3 Rumors and Predictions: Sony

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, is less than 3 weeks away and rumors about new IPs, release dates, and new services have been running rampant.

It was bound to happen, but apparently the entirety of Sony’s press conference has been leaked online. An anonymous source detailed a ton of rumors to DualShockers.com, and they were kind enough to let us all take a look at it.  Although, nothing is 100% confirmed to be true as of yet, the leaked information on the conference is still pretty interesting to look at. Personally, a lot of the things listed on the rumor list is exactly what I would predict or like to see. So let’s take a look shall we?

Review: Child of Light

Review: Child of Light

This year has been great for role-playing games.

On the 3DS, we were treated to the excellent Bravely Default, and then we got South Park: The Stick of Truth for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Now, we have Child of Light by Ubisoft Montreal, developed in the UbiArt Framework (best known as the engine for Rayman: Origins and Rayman: Legends).

Child of Light is a beautifully rendered side-scrolling RPG that takes place in the Kingdom of Lemuria and follows the adventure of a young girl named Aurora. At the beginning of the game, we learn that the year is 1895, and Aurora is the daughter of the Duke of Austria. One night, on the Great Friday before Easter, Aurora fell asleep and awoke in Lemuria.

Confused, but not frightened, Aurora vows to return home to her Father, but before she can, she learns she must defeat the evil Queen of the night who stole the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars from the sky.

Review: Infamous: Second Son

It has been three long years since we last stepped into the super-powered romp that is the inFAMOUS series. Seven years after the New Marais incident, inFAMOUS: Second Son puts you in control of Delsin Rowe, a small time vandal with ambitions to make a name for himself. However, like any super hero story, there are obstacles that stand in his way.

Second Son is the third game in the inFAMOUS series and may be the best in the series to date. However, there are a few problems here and there, but we’ll talk about those in a bit.

Review: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

After years of teaser trailers and the whole Moby Dick Studios thing, the first bit of Metal Gear Solid V has finally been released in the form of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (MGSV:GZ). Since its release, people have been scratching their heads trying to figure out what exactly to classify Ground Zeroes as. 

For all intents and purposes, MGSV:GZ is the prologue to the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. As such, MGS:GZ is a very short experience. Going from my own play-through of the game, it took me around two hours to complete the main story mission, while only achieving a 9% completion rate.

Capcom reveals the fifth and final character for Ultra Street Fighter 4

During Final Round 17 in Atlanta Georgia, Capcom finally revealed the newest character to join the Street Fighter 4 roster!

The new character, Decapre, is one of M.Bison’s assassins and body guards known as “Dolls”. Unfortunately for the fighting game community, Decapre appears to be a clone of Cammy White with a few notable differences. Unlike Cammy, Decapre is a charge character with crazy mobility and combo potential. But, before I start analyzing her apparent abilities, let’s have Decapre’s reveal trailer and a little back story.
