Gaming News: 2/9/13

Skylanders Swap Force LogoHOLY CRAP A NEW SKYLANDERS GAME IS COMING OUT AND I’M TOTALLY GOING TO BUY IT!!

In other news, the Wii U is going to get a special ZombiU bundle to help with its dismal sales. This should be good news considering one of the Wii U’s only hot exclusive titles is getting delayed and it’s no longer an exclusive.

Right in the Nintendo fanboy heart! Read the rest of this entry »

Game Hunter’s Journal: Magic Price

Game Stack 2 I’ve discussed the “Magic Price” with Jett and Mat on an episode of the Recurring Bosscast (which you should listen to right now!), but I wanted to touch I the topic again. Buying games isn’t cheap, but if you are patient and work under the confines of your own budget, you can own piles of games that will keep you occupied for the foreseeable future. Not to mention amass a collection to make the rest of your gaming buddies jealous.

The Recurring Bosscast: 008 – Hawk and Awe

Episode 008 LogoEpisode 8 of the Recurring Bosscast is up and running!

Mat gives us his early impressions on the unreleased Metal Gear Rising, Jett and I talk top tier in Skylanders: Giants, and I divulge why 3DS owners should buy Fire Emblem: Awakening right away.

This week’s topic has us engaged in finding games that illicit true emotion, be it fear, love, hate, or laughter. We discover that most of the best games out there draw on some emotional standard, and forecast how up and coming titles should use this to their benefit.

Sunday Roundup: 2/3/13

New Games (2-3-13)I’ve been bitten by the “I feel obligated to spend money” bug! And I have a feeling the symptoms aren’t going to go away until I pick up a few cheap games. This week was just the starter. I’m getting antsy about buying games I’ve been looking at on the GameStop shelves for months/years now: all I’m waiting for is a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” used sale and I’m gonna go nuts. By “go nuts” i mean drop like, $30. I’ll probably buy upwards of 10 games with said $30, so it’ll be a good deal. More on that to come if and when it should occur. Until then…

Review: Fire Emblem: Awakening

Fire Emblem Awakening CoverWith a story involving ancient dragons, a land divided by turmoil and different rulers, and a character suffering from amnesia, one might think Fire Emblem: Awakening is a run-of-the-mill tactical RPG. But looking at the game in such a way only scratches the surface of what Fire Emblem: Awakening has to offer: a huge cast of varied characters, approachable yet deep gameplay, and cutscenes that are more stunning than some console games.
