Epic Games is Launching Its Own Digital Game Store in 2019

It’s a wonderful time to be a PC gamer. Steam gives you access to thousands upon thousands of games in a one stop shop for digital downloads. That’s on top of the still thriving browser game industry (even seeing a resurgence with all the .IO sites, like slither.io or agar.io), proprietary sellers like Ubisoft’s UPlay or EA’s Origin, and smaller competitors like Itchi.io or Humble Bundle offering DRM-free downloads. Steam is still king because of ease of use and variety of games.

New Dead by Daylight Player Test Build is Live + Teasers for Next Chapter

Have you wondered how I can get a review up of an entire new chapter of DBD within a day of it officially releasing? The Player Test Build, or PTB for short, allows any player on PC to opt into essentially a public beta for the new chapter. You get to test out the new killer, the new survivor, all their new perks, the new map, and all the new optimization updates before the game goes live.

Pokemon: Let's Go Eevee Review (Game Review, 2018)

This review is based on Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee. I have not had hands-on time with Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu.

Pokemon: Let’s Go is the newest mainline game in the Pokemon series. It is a reimagining of the 1st Generation games set in the Kanto region. The series started with Pokemon Red/Blue when it was released internationally (originally Pokemon Red/Green/Blue were Japan-only releases, though Red/Green would eventually be released on the Virtual Console in 2016). The game combines elements of the original Red/Blue with the companion Pokemon plotline of Yellow (where Pikachu loved you so much at first sight, he refused to stay in a pokeball and walked with you instead) and the catching mechanics of Pokemon Go. It’s a lot to take in.

Don't Starve: Hamlet in Early Access

Don’t Starve, Klei Entertainment’s dark and whimsical survival horror game, is a game I return to again and again. Even the original base game provided hours of playtime. You play as one of several characters dropped into a randomly generated cartoon hellscape with no supplies and a warning that you look hungry. You gather supplies—rocks, twigs, grass—to build tools that let you break rocks, chop down trees, build fire, and cook food you scavenge. You continue gathering resources from there, dealing with the sometimes friendly, often times deadly local wildlife.

Just Dance 2019 Review (Console Game, 2019)

This review focuses on the Nintendo Switch version of Just Dance 2019. Each console has their own control method determined by whether or not they have a camera or specialty controller built in.

It’s hard to believe it, but the Just Dance franchise has been around since 2009. It is a party game series. It’s a hop in and play dancing game. You mirror the moves of the characters shown onscreen and score points based on your accuracy. The game has consistently featured hit songs from around the world, giving you a large variety of songs and dance styles to play with.
