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

  • Two King of Fighters Characters Join Dead or Alive 6 Roster

    Two King of Fighters Characters Join Dead or Alive 6 Roster

    Who might it be?

    The Dead or Alive 6 roster continues to grow months after the game's release. Today, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja revealed that there are at least two additional DLC characters coming very soon to the existing roster. "Very soon" means right now in most cases.

    Some of you out there may already be familiar with them. They are Mai Shiranui and Kula Diamond from The King of Fighters. Two characters from a different fighting game? Yup! These two are included as part of the Season Pass 1 for Dead or Alive 6.

    However, if you don't own that,...

    Killing Floor 2 Steampunk Themed Summer Event is Live

    Kickin' Brass and taking names.

    Tripwire Interactive just released their latest free content update for Killing Floor 2 today. They're calling it Killing Floor 2: Back & Kickin' Brass and if you were in the room with me, you would have been able to hear my eyes rolling when I first read the name of this update.

    As already mentioned, this free content update has a bit of a steampunk vibe going for it. There are some new things and some old things. There is a free weekend and a sale, at least for the Steam version. It's a little of this and a little of that. It's also...

    A New ZUSI is Available for Train Sim Enthusiasts

    All aboard for simulated fun.

    Another train simulator has found its way through the world of game development and is now ready to be released to the world. The latest is from Aerosoft and Excalibur Games and it's called ZUSI 3 - Aerosoft Edition. It's said to be "highly realistic" in its simulation of trains. This includes its "accurate simulation of signalling and protection systems."

    Apparently, the ZUSI series is used by railway companies for training new drivers. I don't know much about trains or train companies, but I'm willing to believe what...

  • The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    The Witcher 3 on Switch Runs at 540p in Handheld Mode

    Docked mode is a bit better at 720p.

    When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition was announced for the Nintendo Switch this week, it was met with a mixture of excitement and apprehension. Fans were a bit worried about what sacrifices had to be made to the game's visuals to get a game as resource hungry as The Witcher 3. Even consoles like the PlayStation 4 struggled to maintain an acceptable framerate in the game at its launch.

    Admittedly, CD Projekt RED made some significant improvements to get nearly every platform running The Witcher 3 at an acceptable framerate....
