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.

  • My Friend Pedro is Out Now for PC and Switch

    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. ...

  • 2D Fighting Game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood Out Now

    2D Fighting Game Million Arthur: Arcana Blood Out Now

    Everybody was 1v1 2D fighting.

The game features 13 playable fighters in addition to 31 "Support Knight" summon character assists. Well then, that's not exactly "1v1" then, is it, Million Arthur: Arcana Blood?

    A new story for the game was overseen by author Kazuma Kamachi. Speaking of story, this one focuses on "Britain's Grand Martial Arts Tournament and the warriors aiming for victory and recognition as the true Arthur."...

    Dead by Daylight Getting F2P Mobile Release

    Get some scares in on the road.

    A mobile release of the multiplayer title Dead by Daylight is apparently coming soon for iOS and Android. The news was confirmed today by Behaviour. They also note that the game will be free-to-play at release and is built from the ground up "to offer the best user experience and controls on mobile devices."

    If you haven't heard of Dead by Daylight yet, or need a refresher, I got you. Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer game. There are four survivors and one powerful killer. The hunter is usually a maniacal and crazy...

  • Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    Bungie Details Big Changes Coming to Eververse in Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

    There are some good changes in store, Guardian.

    When Destiny 2: Shadowkeep launches this Fall, Bungie is going to have made a ton of changes to some core mechanics in their space opera shooter. Among those changes will be a fairly drastic overhaul to Eververse and some of the currencies associated with that in-game store.

    Eververse has been a small point of contention for Destiny fans ever since the first Destiny title. It is an in-game store that sells various items for currency that you can earn by playing the game or for another currency type that you can only obtain...

  • Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    Alpha Protocol Pulled from Steam

    It may be a temporary thing.

    The Steam store listing for Alpha Protocol was updated today. Instead of a normal store listing for the game, the page now says that Alpha Protocol has been pulled from sale on Steam at the request of the publisher. The publisher in this case being Sega.

    It's not at all clear what is happening with the game to result in Sega halting sales. Typically when a game that has been released is suddenly pulled, it means one of a few things. Either a remaster or remake of the game is coming soon, there is a licensing issue with audio in the game,...

  • DONTNOD's Twin Mirror Delayed Until 2020, Now Also an Epic Games Store Timed Exclusive

    Timed exclusives on PC continue to be a fat load of BS.

    Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind games like Vampyr and Life is Strange, announced today that they have signed a partnership with Epic Games for Twin Mirror. You already know what that means. Yes, Twin Mirror is now going to be a one-year exclusive on the Epic Games Store.

    The game was announced back at E3 2018. All that we've really seen about the game came during that show by way of a short teaser trailer and word that it was a new "story-driven adventure" title. We also know that Bandai Namco...

  • Twitch is Suing Users that Posted Porn, Violence, Racism, and More to Artifact Section

    The company says these users harmed their business.

    In March 2019, a bunch of idiots got together and flooded the Artifact section on Twitch with all sorts of random content. This seemed to include everything from multiple hour loops of "Ayaya" to things like showing full copyrighted Hollywood films like Avengers: Endgame, full episodes of various copyrighted television shows like Malcolm in the Middle, a whole lot of uncensored hardcore porn like raw gachi (NSFW if you decide to search for it), to uncensored footage of the Christchurch mosque terror attack, and an assortment of videos full of extreme racism and misogyny.

    In other words, it was a real shitshow. ...

    The game blended together elements of mystery, crime solving, adventure, and a hefty splash of cyberpunk. This past week, a sequel was announced for 2064. It's called Read Only Memories: N...

  • 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...
