Avengers Is Coming to PlayStation Now – And That’s Perfect

It’s no great surprise, but Avengers is finally making it to a subscription service. The Little Game That Should’ve But Couldn’t is finally going to find the home it deserves. That’s not an insult. We are in a period of transition – the old way of selling games is dying and a new one is upon us. Not only should Avengers have started its life on PlayStation Now and Xbox Game Pass, but it probably shouldn’t ever have been sold…

It’s Time for a New Banjo-Kazooie

Banjo-Kazooie represents everything great about the golden age of Nintendo. Except for one thing: it’s owned by Microsoft. Everything about the bear and bird’s original 1998 adventure has Nintendo DNA in it. From the graphics to the sound to the gameplay, it is a first-party N64 game through and through. But it’s not 1998 anymore. Just like Banjo pushed on from Mario 64 back in the day, a top-quality Mario clone on Game Pass would need to build on what…

Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga Delayed

Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga was delayed before and…now its been delayed again. Check out the statement from TT Games below and then please join us for some thoughts on the announcement. It is disappointing that Lego Star Wars The Skywalker Saga has been delayed again. That said, the world is a very different place right now. Its amazing that more games haven’t been delayed, it has happened so much with movies and television. We don’t know for sure…

Australia and New Zealand Have Real Potential for the Games Industry

There’s an opportunity for games to be big in New Zealand and Australia. They’re not usually countries that we think of when we try to name development locations. Traditionally that was more based in Asia, America or central Europe. But the trade body for developers in New Zealand and Australia says there’s real potential for gaming to make a splash down under. Australia and New Zealand – Potential for Growth The Interactive Games & Entertainment Association says a push to…

Revisiting an Opinion: Are Next Generation Consoles Worth it Yet?

The Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 are excellent home consoles, both with their own various pros, and only a few major cons. When we reviewed them back in November 2020, GamesReviews came to a pretty solid conclusion on both - outstanding, at times mind boggling consoles that you really don't need just yet. After a few months, has my opinion changed? Not much, although the benefits of the newer consoles is more evident day after day.

More Thoughts From Me #265: Closing Down the (Digital) Shop

This week we got rumors that the PS3/PSP/Vita digital stores will be shutting down this year. Usually I do not report or even talk about rumors. That said, the closing of those shops will happen sooner or later! What do I think of digital stores closing? Let’s dig into it. Its always tough when digital store fronts close down. We all know why this happens: digital stores take up server space for companies. They cost money to keep up and…

Crash Landing: The Long Wait for Crash 4

Crash Bandicoot: Warped came out in 1998. My constant dull back pain and need to grunt every time I sit down shows just how long ago that was. Crash 4 came out last September – a little close to the launch of the new-generation consoles for comfort. Our very own Kevin Austin gave it an 8.5 at the time, but we all knew the real version would come to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. That port launched last week…

Secret Lab Titan Stealth Gaming Chair Review

With a multitude of gaming chair companies scattered around the globe, it's often hard to decide which chair will be the best fit for you. For many, it comes down to the price you pay, but that doesn't always paint a clear picture on which is the best. For example, if you have to buy two sub-par chairs for 299.99 each over a 10 year period, but only one quality chair for 499.99 in that same span, the choice seems very obvious. Secret Lab is definitely on the higher end of the gaming chair price spectrum, but the quality components, fantastic seats, and so ...

Bethesda’s FPS Boost: The Fight Between Framerate and Resolution Comes to a Head

Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, with a doubled FPS boost, without any patching. Almost sounds too good to be true on console, right? Well, that’s because it is. To officially play these games at a desirable framerate on Xbox Series X, you have to choose between 4k resolution and 60fps, because if you choose the latter you’ll find yourself playing at 1080p. Why? There could be many reasons, although we know that a 60FPS mod does the trick with far…
