Ever since Nintendo decided to release their own official emulation boxes, fans have been scrambling like crazy to try and get a hold of them, often with little luck due to stock issues. Learning from these issues with the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo has periodically been releasing SNES Classic Edition in an attempt to make more available. I finally found one and grabbed one for myself. Let’s take a look at the system as a whole.
You heard right but let’s not confuse it with the Larry Correia books. The Kulve Taroth Siege is a new type of quest in Monster Hunter World. It is up and running as of today, April 19th. Here is the info you need to know about doing this special event.

I trusted the first Ni no Kuni almost entirely sight unseen. A JRPG by Level-5 that looks and sounds like a Studio Ghibli film? Sign me up! So trusting was I that I even preordered the collector’s edition from Bandai-Namco, during the short preorder time in the summer before the game’s release, when most people didn’t even have the game on their radars. My trust was, for the most part, rewarded with a deep and moving JRPG that, while having some glaring issues like a slow start and a miserable to learn battle system, became one of my favorite games on the PlayStation 3. When Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom was announced, I was excited but wary. Could it be as good as the first? And how is this little cat boy related to King Tom of Ding Dong Dell? How much of a sequel would this be? I grew only more worried as development teams changed, combat overhauled, new gameplay mechanics added, and more. Thankfully, Revenant Kingdom calmed my worried soul, and delivered a modern JRPG in a tight and compact package that anyone can enjoy.

As a franchise gets more and more popular, it will naturally get more and more spin-offs. Spin-offs, in my experience, are generally lackluster and feel like more of a way to keep cashing in on a successful name. This is exactly what I expected out of Detective Pikachu and was surprised to find a legitimately enjoyable game.
Yesterday, Capcom has released Mega Man-themed DLC into Monster Hunter World and it looks great!

Games have come a long way since the launch of Mega Man X in 1993. Despite this, side scrolling action/platform games have held a place in our gaming ecosystem, always evolving and always offering something enticing for players. Mega Man X arguably started this evolution. With the release of the SNES Classic, I’ve decided to take a step back and look at Mega Man X.

With the video game market saturated with beat-em-ups and Japanese RPGs, it takes a lot of work to stand out as something special. Penny-Punching Princess on the Nintendo Switch manages to do exactly this, by twisting the familiar way in which these types of games approach progression.

Back at it again with the Hakuoki review, and this time it's Hakuoki: Edo Blossoms! The game is also known as Hakuoki: Shinkai Hana no Shou in Japan, and storywise happens after Hakuoki: Kyoto Winds. It's recommended to start with Kyoto Winds to have all of the character and story background, but the game does start off with a very brief summary of the events from the last game to get the player up to speed, which is really neat and a great reminder after not having played the first game in a couple months. Still, I would highly suggest checking out the first game in the series, which you can find our review for it HERE

From the developer of one of my favorite series, known as Disgaea, comes an action RPG with story, art, and presentation. All of which you can skip. Don't know what I mean? You will have an idea soon enough. Just a little background, I have not played or even seen gameplay of the original The Witch and the Hundred Knight, but I'm here for the sequel. This is from a fresh perspective and not bridging comparisons between the two. Now, let's take a look.
