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.

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.

    Trove - Hands-on Gameplay Video from the Alpha

    I recently got into the Trove alpha from Trion Worlds. It's got a look similar to Minecraft and Cube World but the gameplay is quite different from both.


    The game is in a very, very early alpha stage of development. It has a long way to go as far as development is concerned, but I'll be sure to keep an eye on it and provide updates if possible of any major changes.

    You can sign up at the Trove website for your chance to get into the alpha or future beta....

  • Rumor: PlayStation 4 to Receive Native PS1 and PS2 Emulation

    Rumor: PlayStation 4 to Receive Native PS1 and PS2 Emulation

    A "well placed source" close to Eurogamer told them that the PlayStation 4 may receive an update to natively emulate PlayStation and PlayStation 2-era games. This is different to the streaming, cloud-based emulation service, PlayStation Now, which will provide backwards compatibility for PlayStation 3 titles.
    Our information suggests that the same internal emulator strategy is planned for PlayStation 4, and we understand that Sony is actively pursuing the ability for older titles to run without the blurry upscaling seen on PS3, suggesting that native HD resolutions are being targeted. Assuming this intention

    The Loadout team released an uncensored launch trailer for their game today. The trailer was made by the team at Rooster Teeth and it stands by its "uncensored" title in that it features some graphic cartoon violence, balls, and boobs. You can't say I didn't warn you.
