Resident Evil 7 had me hooked from the moment it was revealed at E3 2016, it’s the first game in the series that had me excited the way Resident Evil 4 did back in the Gamecube days, then again on the Wii. The release date has come around so quickly and since last year, every bit of information and new trailer has just got me more hyped until I’m at this point where I feel like I would actually just chop off my left arm to play it; here’s why I’m excited for the next chapter of Resident Evil.Read moreResident Evil 7: Why It’s Taking Me Straight To Resi Heaven
Nintendo held a live presentation in Japan about a week ago; unveiling important details on their upcoming console, the Nintendo Switch. Opinions on the presentation itself have been somewhat negative despite the console looking to be an amazing system that you can take on the go. Most of the cons have been related to the launch games, pricing, unexciting translators, and motion-gaming being a big part of the presentation.

But I have a lot of words left to use, so come sit around and listen to an old fart banter about an old game.

PlatinumGames has been around for about 10 years now; having worked on amazing titles like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and Bayonetta 2. The developers have worked with many different publishers and have had their toes dipped into multiple licensed franchises. With the recent announcement of their Microsoft exclusive title, Scalebound, being cancelled, what does this mean for the development team; are they spreading themselves too thin?
There are almost 50 gym leaders throughout the world of Pokemon. They all have their own specialty of typing; whether it may be water, fire, steel, or any of the other types of Pokemon. But these leaders aren’t just strong Pokemon trainers; they’re upstanding members of their community, heroes to children, and just someone to look up to.

This past year has been a particularly strange one for me. The games I’ve spent most of my time with were ones that surprised me immensely and weren’t originally in my sight. My Game of the Year has been decided but some titles popped up on me and one certain game disappointed me (cough** Last Guardian** cough). But It’s all good, because other games filled the gap and made 2016 a year to remember.
