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.

Chivalry 2 Announced as Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

    The Avengers Meets Fortnite for a Limited Time Mashup

    For a limited time, Fortnite Battle Royale players will be able to get their hands on, or rather in, the Infinity Gauntlet from Avengers: Infinity War. Players will become Thanos in a special game mode that finds 100 players hunting for and fighting over control of the Infinity Gauntlet.

    The first person to equip the Gauntlet will become Thanos and will "wield the Gauntlet's power." Whatever you think about the game itself, you can't help but admit that Epic Games is kind of crushing it when it comes to promoting the game. In related news, PUBG suddenly doesn't feel so good.

  • Valve Puts Out Last Call for Portal 2 Nendoroids

    Valve Puts Out Last Call for Portal 2 Nendoroids

    Whenever I get a press release sent to my inbox from Valve, there's always a bit of shock and excitement that accompanies the notification. Is it a new game? Is is the Panorama update for CSGO? No, sadly, this email today was none of that. It was instead a notification that the limited-time offer for Portal 2 Nendoroids is coming to a close in a few days.

    This includes the P-Body Nendoroid and the Atlas Nendoroid. You can get each of them for 5,800 Japanese Yen or about $53 (USD).

    Both P-Body and Atlus come with essentially the same things, so I'll just paste the description for P-Body here.

Gain your reputation by engineering and selling your own spacecraft, testing them to the limit in RTS simulated emergency and combat situations.
