Review: Persona 5 Royal

A master class in improving upon what is already great.

In September 2016, the original release of Persona 5 made its debut in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It eventually had its Western market debut in April 2017. The game was developed by P-Studio and published in North America by Atlus. Despite a few minor issues, it was largely regarded as a fantastic JRPG with excellent art, an intriguing cast of characters, enjoyable gameplay, and even a rad soundtrack. Persona...
 

PlayStation 5 System Specs Revealed

We finally have the full next-gen picture.

As Sony's Mark Cerny wraps up his promised PlayStation 5 deep dive, the specs and other details for the PlayStation 5 have been released. So far, we know that the PlayStation 5 will be backwards compatible with most PlayStation 4 titles. Cerny seems to have stopped short of saying it will be backwards compatible with other generations, which is unfortunate.

We also learned today that Sony is putting a lot of effort into their...

Steam and CS:GO Break Concurrent User Records Yet Again

Actually, they broke records twice this weekend.

It seems like Valve isn't a fan of vinyl because they've been busy breaking records left and right this past month. In early February, we brought you word about how Counter-Strike: Global Offensive broke its old concurrent player record twice in the same weekend. Once the dust settled on the whirlwind weekend of February 8-9, 2020, the top number saw over 901,000 concurrent players enjoying CS:GO at one time. This had beaten a record...
 

E3 2020 Cancelled as Covid-19 Declared Global Pandemic

Wait, am I out of a job now?

Earlier today, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus (Covid-19) a pandemic. Think of a pandemic as an epidemic that has a much greater reach. Epidemics could be considered to be localized to just a few places in the world. Pandemics signify that there is a global impact. For a while, Covid-19 was still considered an epidemic because it was largely contained to areas of China and mostly to those that travel. As the virus continues...

    The Next Battlefield 5 Chapter to be Revealed Tomorrow

    We're still in the Pacific.

    EA and DICE announced today that they will reveal the sixth chapter in their ever ongoing Tides of War content for Battlefield V. This new chapter is appropriately called Into the Jungle and it takes us, you guessed it, into some dense jungle environments. Well, there's at least one dense jungle environment.

    There's no saying how many new maps this next chapter will actually bring, though certain wording in official statements seem to indicate...

  • Season 2 DLC Roster Revealed for Samurai Shodown

    Season 2 DLC Roster Revealed for Samurai Shodown

    This new season adds in four new fighters.

    Throughout February, four new fighters will be added to Samurai Shodown courtesy of the second season of DLC content. Yes, you will need to pay for these extra characters as that's usually how these things go.

    I wasn't told the price of this second season of DLC, but I'm assuming the new Season Pass will retail for $19.99 (USD) just as the first Season Pass retailed for. If you decide to purchase these new characters separately,...

  • Britain Finds An Unusual Way To Celebrate Its Gaming Heritage

    Britain Finds An Unusual Way To Celebrate Its Gaming Heritage


    When it comes to the creation of hugely successful video games, the United Kingdom arguably punches above its weight. It's a small country when compared to the size and population of the United States of America, but the video game designers there have given us some of the greatest computer games ever conceived, from the Championship Manager series through to Grand Theft Auto. It’s a history worth celebrating, and the country has decided to celebrate it in the most delightfully British...

  • Speedrunners Continue to Break Ocarina of Time - Now Able to Spawn in an Arwing from Star Fox 64

    This is done without outside cheat devices.

    Over the past several weeks, the speed running community has absolutely broken open The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The record for Ocarina of Time any% went from just shy of 17 minutes as of six months ago, to just 12 minutes and 3 seconds as of 4 days ago. To put it into perspective, it took the community over 4 years to get the old record to be under 17 minutes. It's taken them six months to get it to just 12 minutes. For a game ...

  • A Rumor Suggests a Knights of the Old Republic Remake is in Development

    A Rumor Suggests a Knights of the Old Republic Remake is in Development

    It's a slow news day, so here's a rumor born from a single site.

    A new rumor was fired up yesterday from cinelinx.com that says a remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is currently in the works. There might be a bit of validity behind this rumor, we aren't exactly sure ourselves. The track record of cinelinx is unknown to us, but it's a slow news day so let's roll with it.

    The site claims that two independent sources have told them that Knights of the Old R...

  • Court Rules that Player's Free Speech Rights Weren't Violated After Being Banned From a Video Game

    Imagine that, a gamer was dumb enough to argue about free speech rights.

    A federal court dismisses a case where an (alleged) moron complained about his free speech rights being violated in a video game. A Pennsylvania man actually tried to claim that his civil rights were violated after he was muted by the developers in an online video game.

    To interject briefly: Yes, there are indeed people that don't have a fucking clue what "freedom of speech" actually means....
