Review: Judgment (PS4)

The same, but different.

Sega, specifically the Yakuza team at Sega, are really damn good at what they do. The primarily Japanese developer has been on a roll with their stellar Yakuza-focused releases this generation that include Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Kiwami 2, and Yakuza 6. All of these titles have received high praise both from myself and from other media outlets these past few years.

It should then come as no surprise that the level of quality found in those titles does not take any sort of hit with the team's latest release, Judgment. Make no mistake about...
 

EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

In fact,...

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

Another Tripwire published title revealed as an EGS timed-exclusive.

The Chivalry series is making a comeback at what could be a very interesting time. Despite fierce competition from Mordhau, Torn Banner Studios announced that they are working on Chivalry 2. It will once again be a multiplayer first-person "slasher" set in medieval battlefields. The game, published by Tripwire Interactive, is targeting a 2020 release on the Epic Games Store.

  • Judgment is Now Available

    Judgment is Now Available

    Prepare to get judged.

    Sega announced that Judgment is now available for the PlayStation 4 today. Technically, the digital version was released last week, but for those that wanted the physical release, today is your day. Thanks to our Judgment review, at least you know that the wait was worth it, right?

    Shameless self-promotion out of the way, let's talk about the game itself, shall we? Judgment is a game not completely dissimilar to the Yakuza titles. Only this time, you play not as as former member of the Yakuza but as Detective Takayuki Yagami as he's looking to...

  • Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    Steam Will Not Support Ubuntu 19.10 and Later

    But will still support Linux.

    Valve is one of the big reasons why gaming on Linux has seen such a massive surge in recent years. One of the biggest pushes came not from specially created Linux builds of games, but from Proton, a fork of Wine that Valve released to allow for games to become playable on Linux that may not have native Linux support. At present, there are over 5,400 games that work through Steam on Linux thanks to Proton.

    Over the years, Valve has recommended that those looking to get into using Linux try out Ubuntu Linux. Last Friday, that all changed....

  • E3 2019 in Review

    E3 2019 in Review

    The good, the bad, and the boring.

    As June comes to an end, that typically only means one thing if you're a fan of games or gaming: E3 has once again come and gone. Typically, this is a time to look back on all of the amazing new reveals or take in details on the newest hardware announcements, but E3 2019 felt a bit different.

    What is E3?
    For those who are somehow unaware of what E3 is, it stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo. As you can see each word begins with an "E" and there are three words. Weird how that works out like that. E3 is one of the...

    My Friend Pedro is Out Now for PC and Switch

    This game is bananas.

    Devolver Digital and developer DeadToast Entertainment are proud to announce that their over the top, martial arts filled, skateboarding, talking banana, action game called My Friend Pedro is now available. The game that blends all of those elements together with a healthy dose of shooting, platforming, and sick slow-mo moves is out now for the PC and the Nintendo Switch.

    Seriously, the game looks like it's a ton of fun based on what I've seen so far. ...
