Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days Gameplay Trailer — Rewind the Mayhem

Not sure if Mr. Tarantino approved Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, but the game’s happening and the gameplay trailer shows an interesting QT-esque mechanic: rewind time, get in the head of a different character. Basically, it’s what it sounds like.  Play with one character, go back in time, play the same moment with a different character. … Read More »

Prey Hardware Labs Trailer — Yu got some Swag!

Last year’s gameplay trailer for Prey didn’t wow me, but the Hardware/Weapons video is a different story. Bethesda’s FPS/RPG (about a space station gone alien-hostile) has some gnarly goods. First up gnarly is a grenadish thing called a Recycler Charge. It’s like a mini-black hole.  Throw it, sucks stuff in.  Who doesn’t want a mini-black… Read More »

Surf World Series — Surfing that won’t kill you…hopefully.

I tried surfing once.  I almost died. Got caught under, board came up and smacked me on the bridge of the nose.  Spun under and tried swimming back but too disoriented. Eventually made it back somehow but I was done with surfing. Needless to say, I’m not a big surfing guy, not even in video… Read More »

Detached on Oculus Rift — Who needs SpaceX?

For a million dollars (or a bit more), Elon Musk will take you to space.  Anshar Studios will do it for $19.99.  Well, virtually anyway. The Polish developer’s “PvP VR Experience” game, Detached, is now available on the Oculus store.  The early access beta will simulate some of the intensities of being stranded in space. … Read More »

Ghost Recon Wildlands Gameplay Video — Operation Skydive Extraction

Ghost Recon was my go-to game back in the day.  I’m talking about the first Ghost Recon on the original Xbox.  Six guys, two teams and 49 bad guys.  Yup, 49.  You can count them (and their bodies).  No spawning endlessly like Ghost Recon 2.  That was the Ghost Recon that shouldn’t have changed. But… Read More »

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard — Back to Simple = Back to True Evil

Resident Evil is going back to its roots, which is good news to end a pretty crazy 2016. It’s horror again.  One place, one haunting, one madness.  The only difference is that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is first person, but the guns and puzzles are still there.  And based on the trailer, we’re back to… Read More »

Super Mario Run Release Date is December 15 — Watch out ‘shrooms!

The most anticipated game (in my household) finally has a release date.  December 15.  My kid has been screaming (literally!) for this mobile F2P.  Now I can give him a date, though his response will be, “That’s tomorrow, right?” The new Super Mario Run Intro video shows us how to play this extremely complex game. … Read More »

Madden Mobile 17 — How to use Stamina and Money

Not sure how to spend your stamina and money in Madden Mobile 17?  It’s very simple.  Focus on two players: Mobile Master Rob Gronkowski and Domination Von Miller. Both are “end” players.  There’s no replacing them and worth more than anything you’ll get from the auction.  It took me about 2 months to get both. … Read More »
