Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer featuring The Legend of Zelda Review (Game, 2019)

Game developers Brace Yourself Games are responsible for the 2015 rhythm game Crypt of the NecroDancer. This roguelike rhythm game combines traditional dungeon-crawling adventure gameplay with music to create an experience that was described in many reviews as a musical Legend of Zelda game. You fight through various levels of a dungeon, battling enemies by moving towards them on rhythm and collecting powerups and weapons to help you on your journey toward the big boss fight.

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.
