Samurai Warriors 5 is More of the Same (and this is good)!

I've recently been playing around with Samurai Warriors 5 on Nintendo Switch, and while I'm not one with a lot of experience playing Warriors games - my time has been limited to Fire Emblem Warriors and Hyrule Warriors. That being said, the presentation of Samurai Warriors 5 is an improvement on past iterations in the system, providing a brand new visual look that I really enjoyed.

My Time at Portia Mobile Port a Welcome Addition

As we reported earlier this year, My Time at Portia - the fantastic farming and life simulation game - was heading to mobile after having a very successful run on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and Steam. We've been playing with the mobile build for well over a week now, and while we obviously haven't made it through everything the game has to offer, we have played our fair share and can easily tell you how this game ports over to Android and iOS.

Steam’s Refund Policy Needs Another Look

In a world of difficult customer support processes, jargon-filled FAQs and oblique policies, Steam feels like a breath of fresh air. If you’ve played a game for less than two hours within 14 days of purchase, you get your refund. You literally can’t say fairer than that – unless you’re an indie developer. Because the system is absolutely ripe for abuse if your game is less than two hours long, and customers are frequently taking advantage. Play the game, leave…

LEGO Bowser’s Airship Expansion Set

I'm not shy about stating my early opinions of LEGO Super Mario - the entire concept looked really uninteresting, and I saw this being one of LEGO's very rare flops. I didn't want a chunky Mario who played sounds and collected coins. I wanted regular sized Mario minifigures, with other characters like Bowser or the Kooplings built on the same minifig base as Hagrid from Harry Potter or the Hulk from the Avengers. Then I watched my kids play, and I knew I was so very wrong. The latest addition to our LEGO Super Mario collection, Bowser's Airship, is the best ...

Sony’s Horizon Delay Doesn’t Matter this Christmas

2021 isn’t going to be a good holiday season for Sony now that Horizon 2 has been delayed. With blockbusters looking few and far between, a lot of the talk about “the power of exclusives” has aged like milk. This year the viability of the PlayStation 5 will hinge on third-party exclusives and older games, such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales. If you want to play Battlefield or Call of Duty, you can do it here. Albeit, probably at a slightly…
