Resident Evil 2 One-Shot Demo Impressions

Ever since the Resident Evil 2 remake was announced in a YouTube video with Capcom Producer Yoshiaki Hirabyashi wearing a shirt that said “WE DO IT” about three and a half years ago, I’ve been very excited to see how the game shapes up. The original version of the game is one of my favorite games in the series, and is arguably the best of the pre-RE4 games. When the game was finally shown at E3 this last year, it looked great, but it looked like it was Resident Evil 4 with 2’s story, which might be good for new fans, but could cost the original game some of its identity. Well, earlier today, Capcom released a thirty minute demo, giving us a taste of what we can expect. Continue reading

The Eleventh Mega Man Game

After eight long years, a new entry in the original Mega Man series finally released today. With it comes a new art style, brand new mechanics, and multi-form boss fights, but it also brought with it a lot of questions. Could a game like this work in 2018?

That means that not only did I have to make way more cuts, but there isn’t a single game on here that I didn’t love. That’s better if you ask me. Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Bionic Commando (NES)

Bionic Commando is one of those games that despite not being super well known, has a very loud and passionate following. I did not grow up playing it. Instead, I was introduced to the series through the remake/reboot, Bionic Commando: Rearmed and the under appreciated Bionic Commando for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I loved those games, infamous plot twist and all, but how does the original game fare these days? Continue reading

Random Game Wednesdays: Resident Evil Revelations (Wii U)

I first played Resident Evil Revelations when it first came out on the 3DS back in 2012. It was an extremely impressive game, boasting what might still be the best graphics on the handheld and just about everything you would expect from the Resident Evil series. A year later, it was ported to home consoles. Can a game that was designed with the 3DS’s tiny screen still turn out alright on an HDTV? Continue reading
