Mortal Kombat X – Games of 2015

  Since I’m not really too into the fighting game scene, I have a lot of trouble figuring out how long the lifespan of a great fighting game should be.

Played Batman: Arkham Knight – Meaningless Car Metaphors

I kind of feel like a dick for how I’ve treated Arkham Knight. It has been subject to a lot of criticism from me throughout its development. That criticism comes from a positive place though.

Killer Instinct Isn’t Dead, Microsoft Refiles for Trademark

Rare’s back catalog is a bit difficult to work with thanks to its close ties with Nintendo. Obvious Nintendo properties like Donkey Kong Country or Donkey Kong 64 aren’t possible. Goldeneye not only had Nintendo issues to jump over, but movie rights to the franchise belong to Activision (which tried its best at a remake). I… Continue reading
