Smash Ultimate Shulk Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate shows that sometimes you don’t need to mess with a good thing. The game is a lot like a revamped and improved version of Super Smash Bros. Wii U, for instance, and mostly focuses on bringing more characters into the existing framework. A lot of those characters — like Marth…

Ashen is Dark Souls for People Who Don’t Like Dark Souls

Fight. Die. Drop your experience points. Run back and pick them up. It’s all the elements that superficially add up to a Souls-like — a game heavily influenced by From Software’s Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls series. Even your light and heavy attacks map to the right shoulder buttons in Ashen, the…

Smash Ultimate Little Mac Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate has no shortage of cameo characters that don’t actually fight in their respective series. Little Mac, the hero of Nintendo’s somewhat forgotten Punch-Out!! franchise, is an exception. He’s a member of the Smash Ultimate roster that actually knows how to fight. That typically makes up for the boxer’s small stature…

Smash Ultimate Simon & Richter Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate includes characters of all kinds — regardless of franchise, species, and even profession. That inclusiveness now extends to vampire killers. That’s right Simon and Richter Belmont, two of Castlevania‘s most famous Dracula slayers, are now playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Although Alucard was unfortunately relegated to assist trophy status.…

Smash Ultimate Villager Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate offers something a little bit different for every player. Whether you usually like battling to the death over floating platforms, or just enjoy relaxing in a town full of animals, there’s a fighter to represent you. And few characters are more laid back than the nondescript villager from Animal Crossing —…

Smash Ultimate Rosalina Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate welcomes all comers. Just because a character (or multiple characters) hasn’t shown up for a while doesn’t mean they’ve been completely forgotten. That’s clearly the case with Rosalina and Luma. The co-stars of Super Mario Galaxy haven’t taken center stage in a game since the Nintendo Wii. Yet here they…

Smash Ultimate Isabelle Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

There’s a whole lot going on in Smash Ultimate. The nostalgic platform fighter from Nintendo is chock full of fun in the form of a single-player campaign and endless multiplayer options. But that’s not all. There are also some seriously deep cuts (and fan favorites) joining the fray this time…

Destiny 2 Scourge of the Past Raid Guide

The new Destiny 2 raid, Scourge of the Past, is here at last. It’s the first raid ever set in the Last City, home of the Guardians and the last remnants of humanity. However, it still begins with a “hub” area that unlocks new zones. Except the zones seem to…

Smash Ultimate Bayonetta Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate has a lot more to offer than a fantastic single-player campaign. The competitive platform fighter is also chock full of fan service from Nintendo’s past. That includes some characters that you wouldn’t usually associate with the outwardly family friendly company. Smash Ultimate sports 74 different playable characters at launch —…

Epic Games, the studio behind Fortnite, only announced its own online store a few days ago. But it’s already got a glut of announced PC exclusives. The Game Awards 2018 hosted its own slew of newly announced games — some of them out right now — and a good chunk of them…

Smash Ultimate Wii Fit Trainer Guide – Moves, Outfits, Strengths, Weaknesses

Smash Ultimate is finally here. The celebration of everything Nintendo (and Nintendo adjacent) has launched to a very warm reception, too. But fans will likely need weeks just to unlock the game’s massive roster. And that’s not all. What are you supposed to do once you actually manage to free every…

Cross Platform MOBA Vainglory Is Coming to Consoles

Vainglory — a neat and surprisingly deep MOBA for mobile phones — is coming to consoles in “late 2019.” It’s also currently available (in alpha form) on PC and Mac. Although those versions are getting a major update early next year with the Vainglory 4.0 update. The patch will include “cross-platform…

Saving a 69 Joke is Bringing Warframe Players Together (Nice)

Warframe, the free-to-play loot shooter about robots killing clones, got a pretty major expansion recently. The Fortuna update added a snowy realm on Venus as a playable open-world zone—similar to the Plains of Eidolon on Earth. But despite being a multiplayer game with millions of users, not everyone gets to hang out together…

The Artifact Tutorial is Kind of Terrible

Dota 2 is an incredibly complicated game among incredibly complicated games. It stands to reason that a trading card game based on the popular MOBA would be just as complex. For my part, though, I wish Valve would have learned from its past mistakes. If you don’t know, Artifact is…

What’s Different About Red Dead Online?

Red Dead Redemption 2 is already one helluva big game. But its multiplayer component, the aptly named Red Dead Online, might be even bigger. It’s full of new activities, upgrades, and characters not found in the main game. And while there is a “story,” Red Dead Online is more about letting loose in the…

Fallout 76 Review: Time to Log Out and Pack Up

I can’t play anymore Fallout 76 — not like this, anyway. I don’t think I’ve “beaten” Bethesda’s multiplayer experiment, but I’m certainly done with it after so many stressful, bug-filled hours. I do not like this game on just about any level. Although I do enjoy it, superficially and fleetingly, from time…

Warframe Garuda Guide: Unlocking Garuda and Farming Toroid

Warframe: Fortuna is the latest free expansion to the massively popular free-to-play shooter. And like many Warframe expansions, it comes with a powerful new playable class: Garuda. The gore-themed machine is a fun new addition to any player’s arsenal. She’s also a huge pain to acquire. So we created this…

The Next Final Fantasy XIV Expansion is Shadowbringers

Final Fantasy XIV’s new expansion looks rad. The MMO’s third add-on, titled Shadowbringers, was announced today at Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest. It’s currently scheduled for “early summer 2019.” Besides a few juicy details (new classes, a new playable race, etc.) Square Enix also dropped a new cinematic trailer. It’s…

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Impressions – Duck, Duck, Pig?

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a bit of an odd duck. It also stars an odd duck—at least partially. See, the “mutant” part of this XCOM-like tactics game refers to its playable characters. One of whom is a walking, talking duck man. And, whoa nelly, does the game ever…
