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

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

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.

  • Gambling in Video Games

    Gambling in Video Games

    When we talk about the idea of gambling in video games, the first thing that may spring to mind are the onslaught of "loot boxes" that have become prevalent over the past half of a decade. While those are always a hot topic of conversation amongst gamers, critics, publishers, and even law makers, those aren't what we're here to bring attention to today. No, instead we're going to take a look at things like actual casinos within a variety of your favorite games. From slot machines to blackjack, games of skill and a bit of luck have been featured throughout gaming's long history.

  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider Trailer and Screenshot Reveals; Nvidia and Nixxes Collaborating on PC Version

    Yes, this should have gone up yesterday. It didn't because I wasn't feeling all that well so I hope you'll excuse me for this. However, yesterday Shadow of the Tomb Raider had a brand spanking new reveal trailer. It featured no actual in-game footage. It was in-engine, but not in-game. Bummer. We have that for you today along with word about how the PC version is being developed.

    First though, let's take a look at the various ways you will be able to purchase Shadow of the Tomb Raider across the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
    In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will be forged into the Tomb Raider

  • Eastward Announced by Chucklefish and Pixpil

    Eastward Announced by Chucklefish and Pixpil


    Pixpil is the developer and Chucklefish is the publisher on the just announced game, Eastward. If Chucklefish sounds familiar, it's probably because they're the studio that developed games like Starbound and published games like Risk of Rain and Stardew Valley, to name a few. If Pixpil doesn't sound familiar, it's probably because they are a small studio based out of Shanghai and Eastward is their first game.

    Chucklefish provided a good bit of information today on Eastbound that includes a blog entry detailing some of the game's story and gameplay elements, the first screenshots, and a reveal trailer.
    Eastward is an adventure game combining

    Shoppe Keep 2 Delayed Until May 3

    Some sad news today, Shoppe Keep 2's Early Access release has been pushed until May 3. The game was supposed to enter into Early Access today but dev team at Excalibur Games found a critical issue that needs to be fixed for the multiplayer before they feel comfortable getting it into the hands of players.

There is an unprecedented amount of games being released every day on Steam and we want to launch with the best version possible of Shoppe Keep 2.
