Playstation VR Preorders Available March 22nd

If you want to get your hands on Playstation VR, plan to be at a computer at 10:00 AM Eastern time. I have a feeling that, like Oculus, this will sell out...quickly. The pre-sale bundles will be exclusive to this initial preorder window, so if you plan on getting it on day one, perhaps preordering now would be a wise idea. Here is what is included, from Sony PR:

The Key to Great Video Game PR

When I came on board with GamesReviews I was a nobody. I had just finished my Master's Degree at the University of Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I was back at my dad's diesel shop working on trucks and tractors. This was just suppose to be a causal writing hobby job to keep me sharp as I looked for something more in my field. That was in January of 2014. It's been over two years, and so many things have changed, all thanks to some great PR.

Two Heads Are Better Than One In Pokken Tournament For Wii U

One of the things I like best about fighting games are the multiplayer modes. I especially enjoy local two-player games because both of my parents are video games fans and both of them enjoy fighting with me! Pokken Tournament, thankfully, has an two-player mode that is a lot of fun. I’ll tell you a little bit about it. My mom likes Pokemon. I don’t think she’d ever be a fan of the rpg Pokemon games, but she likes the free…

Pokken Tournament Will Catch Your Attention Right Away

I’ve never reviewed a big Nintendo game before. When I was asked me to review Pokken Tournament, I got really excited. A review copy of a Nintendo game?! Wow. And its a Pokemon fighting game that looks really good too. Now, I’m not a Pokemon fan, but I thought Pokken looked cool. Today, I want to tell you about my very first reaction to Pokken. This is how I felt when I saw the game’s opening movie! When I first…

More Thoughts From Me #10: Video Games Don’t Need Stories

One of my early entries to this column said that every video game needed a story. Now I’m back to give you the opposite position: Video Games don’t need stories! Tetris, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros, and many other games do not have stories. After my last article about video games needing stories, I had some people say, ” Ya, but this game doesn’t have one.” And its true. Not all video games need stories. In fact, I’ll just…

Microsoft Wants to Connect to Playstation

You have to think it was going to happen eventually, but in my opinion, I thought that this would have come as one of the two console giants began to struggle. However, I think Microsoft gets the extra boost of credit as it appears as if they are reaching out to Sony to make this happen. One of the first games to get this treatment: Rocket League.

Not only that, but the game is coming to the Xbox One too! Axiom Verge is a game I’m not too familiar with. All I really know about the game is that its Metroid-like and that a lot of people seem to like it. I’m a Wii U and 3DS…
