Pokkén is Coming to EVO

Hey, you know that game where you get to pick one of your favourite Pokémon, only to watch them duke it out in a gentleman’s round of fisticuffs, all while in the style of the Tekken series? Well, it’s coming to EVO!

I don’t know all too much about either, but I do know that I’m a fan of both fighting games, as well as Pokémon, so having the two grouped together is one giant positive for me. Oh, and I’m well aware that EVO is the most prominent and watched fighting game tournament there is around, one that I’m trying to make more of an effort to watch this year. Afterall, what isn’t great about watching some of the greatest pro’s around in the FGC (fighting game community), and see them battle it out on a game that I can’t personally be the only one looking forward to it...

Mighty No. 9 – Delayed for a Third Time

I’m sure if you’re someone who has the least bit of interest when it comes to the games industry, then you have probably come across a title under the name, ‘Mighty No. 9.’ 

On the off chance that you don’t currently know what this game is; it’s a 2D platformer that is meant to be a modern day Megaman, designed by veteran Megaman developers. The game is set to come out this year, and considering how beloved the Megaman franchise is, it’s no surprise that people are waiting in bated breath for this one.

Now, as you may have noticed from the title, the game has appeared to be delayed once more...

Personal Thoughts

Darkest Dungeon – It’s Pretty Dark in There

It has been about a week since the Steam sale has ended (at least it was when I first started writing) and I think it’s fair to say I got myself a decent haul of games to play, one of which just so happens to be Darkest Dungeon, a turn-based RPG, revolving around a lovecraftian theme. 

Honestly, I’ve been meaning to pick up Darkest Dungeon for a while, and the Steam sale gave me the perfect opportunity to get the game for myself, and oh, does it not disappoint.

There are a number of reasons on why this game got my attention, and one of the first to mention has to be the art-style...

Duelyst – Fire Emblem and Hearthstone Had a Baby

Duelyst is the second game I’ve come across recently in the past week to be similar to Hearthstone, and just card games in general. What Duelyst has going for it in terms of difference in gameplay is the fact it’s designed more around being a strategy game, with a card system to help back it up.

The game does tend to take it’s main gameplay feature of moving around units on the board from Fire Emblem, or other strategy games that resemble the same sort of design. Instead of just having all your units on the board at once, you’ll need to make plays by using your cards to summon them onto the board, as well as buff them up to be a force to be reckoned with, along with a number of other options that different cards provide. 

At the start of each new game, you will have your general at...

Jetpack Fighter – Get Swiping; Get Flying

At first, I wasn’t too sure sure if I wanted to cover Jetpack Fighter, and after finding out that it was actually developed by the team behind Smite, I had made my decision. I don’t have any personal bias towards the developers themselves, but I have played Smite, and this is one vast direction change from their 3rd person MOBA, so I felt the need to report on it. Oh, and the fact that I’ve found the game pretty bloody fun for the past few days now!

The game was released about a week ago on iOS platforms, which is about the time I first picked it up...

Marvel: Contest of Champions – Don’t Know how I Feel About this One

Contest of Champions is one of those mobile games I keep finding myself coming back to on more than just the one occasion, and every time I come back I say the same thing, “this time, I’m in it for the long haul”, and yet, this is my third or fourth attempt. You could be wondering why I keep coming back, and I believe I’ve put it down to 2 factors: I like the Marvel universe as well as the new characters they keep putting into the game, and the fact that I’ve been looking for a mobile game that can hold my attention for more than just a week.

If you don’t know what Contest of Champions is, it is a free-to-play, 2D fighting game where the entire ensemble of fighters are all derived from the Marvel universe...
