My lovely friend Shai-Ann did an article expressing the ten games she’s looking forward to in 2016. This got me to thinking about the very inclusive year we’ve had for female characters as announcements for video games, and how 2016 will invite us into the lives of more female protagonists and I for one, am excited to see women take a more prevalent role in video games this year. So, who am I excited to see? Check out the list the list below!Read moreThe Video Game Women I Can’t Wait To Meet This Year
The Amplitude reboot will be released for PS4 on January 5th, 2016. Kickstarter backers who pledged $40 or more will have early access to the game starting December 23rd. The first Amplitude was a music game originally developed for PS2 by Harmonix in 2003. It was a sequel to Frequency, and was a critical success, but not a financial success.Read moreAmplitude Release Date Announced!

Do you love Castlevania? If so, you’ll probably be interested in Dark Flame, an indie game currently in development by Warren Smith. Described as a “Metroidvania Action-RPG”, this game is a 2-D sidescroller created as a throwback to early Castlevania titles. The game is very early in development, and very little about the story line is known. However, we do know that the protagonist will be Taharial, a warrior in the middle of the Baltic Crusades. After his brothers mysteriously go insane, he vows to find the cause, and sets forth to rid the area of evil before chaos overtakes the land.
As with many indie games Dark Flame is relying on crowdfunding to become a reality. The Kickstarter campaign for the game began on November 5th, 2015 and will be ending on December 6th, 2015. In Just two days people have already pledged more than two thousand dollars of the seventy five thousand dollar goal. Stretch Goal rewards are also listed, and reach all the way up to a whopping two hundred eighty thousand dollars. Backers will also receive social bonuses based on the number of likes or followers the game gets on different social media outlets.
Smith originally spent two and a half years developing this game on his own before deciding to recruit the help of a team of professionals. With the help of this team, improvements were made to the original demo, and a brand new, pre-alpha demo of Dark Flame was released along with the launch of the Kickstarter. This demo is a “polished” version of the one that Smith produced on his own, and features updated visuals, music, and sound effects.
The demo is available for anyone to download from www.darkflamegame.com. Though I usually don’t play Castlevania-style games, I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. If the campaign is successful, the estimated release date of Dark Flame is October 2016.

Where are all my Bronies at? it’s been a while since we’ve had any reason to celebrate, what with the creation of the ridicuousness that is My Little Pony Equestria Girls, that turned our favorite little ponies into actual… people. Talk about a departure from the personified ponies that gave viewers the freedom to focus on growing and being better, without worrying about looks and other such unnecessary issues. Well, if you’re as upset about what they did to these little ponies as I am, there’s an easy way to alleviate your anger. I mean what better way to get over something than by punching someone in the face to alleviate stress (virtually that is, we don’t condone violence here). Well now you can do just that by pitting adorable animals against each other in “Them’s Fightin Herds.”
