[Game Preview] Wickland (PC)

In PC, Previews by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

It’s been quite some time since arena FPSes have been relevant in the mainstream gaming world. Attempts to revive the genre through titles such as Shootmania Storm or migration of Quake Live onto Steam have not exactly proved successful in sparking interest in the genre when you look at popularity of titles such as Call of Duty or Counter-Strike. Mad …

[Game Preview] From the Depths (PC)

In PC, Previews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Ship-to-ship combat is one of those amazing setpieces that we’ve glimpsed in sci-fi standards like Star Wars and Star Trek, but it’s something that’s been seldom seen in the realm of video games for various reasons. Developer Brilliant Skies, however, doesn’t really care – in From the Depths, they’ve not only allowed players to fight to the death in enormous battleships, …

Hi everyone I’m Grant, writer at Denkiphile. Have you heard of Hatsune Miku? Today I’d like to announce a new game by Sega featuring Hatsune Miku: Hatsune Miku Project Diva f 2nd (for those who didn’t get the painfully obvious reference, click here).

[E3 2014] The Evil Within Preview

In 360, PC, Previews, PS3, PS4, Xbox One by Grant MikuriyaLeave a Comment

It’s been a while since I’ve been so scared that I forgot that I made a controller and everything I was touching all sweaty and totally shook someone’s hand with that same sweaty hand. Enough about my problems though. The Evil Within reared it’s ugly – yet welcome – head this year at Bethesda’s booth interestingly enough, because when I …

[E3 2014] Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Preview

In 3DS, Previews by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

I am always ready for a new Harvest Moon, and when we dropped by the Natsume booth (complete with its own gigantic cow), I was especially pleased to see The Lost Valley at its very own demo station. I was even more pleased to find some great changes coming to this cute farming simulator. Probably the biggest change from previous …

[E3 2014] Destiny Hands-On Preview

In 360, Previews, PS3, PS4, Xbox One by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Destiny is highly anticipated and only months from release, which is why Bungie showed up in full force at E3 2014 with a booth full of demo stations and the faith of their fans in their hands. We went hands on with Destiny at the Sony booth. This particular demo consisted of two 10-minute rounds of CQ, which, while a …

[E3 2014] The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Gives Seasoned Players More to Explore

In Microsoft, PC, Previews, PS4, Sony, Xbox One by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

As one of the few developers who push the boundaries on games as well as their preference for the PC platform, CD Projekt RED is arguably the developer that I respect the most when it comes to video game companies. After unveiling The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and seeing first-hand footage last year, I wasn’t entirely sure what could surprise …

[E3 2014] Dragon Ball Xenoverse is Bringing the Z-Warriors Into Next-Gen

In 360, Previews, PS3, PS4, Xbox One by Kevin KartanataLeave a Comment

Dragon Ball is a franchise that is about some very important things: aerial martial arts duels, energy blasts, and cruel alien villains bent on taking the Earth one way or another. Perhaps the most faithful game to really express the fast-paced, destructive action of the Dragon Ball anime and manga are the Budokai series. At E3 2014, the next evolution …

[E3 2014] Bloodborne: A New Hope for the Hardcore

In Previews, PS4, Sony by Eldon TsanLeave a Comment

I haven’t exactly viewed From Software in a particularly good light after playing Dark Souls 2 on PC. Sure, it was a good game, and probably better than anything out in the market as far as gameplay goes, but I realized how much wasted potential the game had and that hit me the hardest. I blamed most of the faults …

If you enjoy slaying huge dragon-dino-lizards, you’re probably a fan of Monster Hunter. If you like swinging giant swords, axes, or hammers into your enemies, you’re probably a fan of Monster Hunter.
