Coming Soon: Injustice 2

On May 16th, 2017, Injustice 2 smashes its way onto store shelves. While I adore that first game, my excitement for the title has been muted for quite some time.

Early Impressions of Mass Effect: Andromeda

When Mass Effect: Andromeda was released, it came into the world with a flurry of criticism. From knocks on it being a less compelling game to its predecessors to glaring technical issues that shatter the uncanny valley, I heavily thought about trading in my launch copy to avoid disappointment. Eventually, I decided to give it a shot and…I’ve enjoyed what I played quite a bit.

Ed Revealed in Street Fighter V

Though news of Ed’s appearance as the next DLC character in Street Fighter V has been leaked on a number of fronts, he finally makes his formal debut in this trailer released by Capcom.

Having made his debut in Balrog’s Street Fighter IV ending as a kid, Ed is rapidly aging due to harnessing Psycho Power, hence why he looks like a full-grown adult now. Beyond having access to special energy, he’s trained under Balrog, giving him a boxing-style flair to his approach.

Ed looks awesome. Say what you will about his default costume, his fighting style looks like a blast to play as. Haven’t picked up Street Fighter V in quite some time, but this is a character that I definitely want to invest some time into.

For those who have access to the upcoming online beta, he will be playable this week. After that, he’ll be available in the near future. Get that fight money ready for one more cool character on the roster!

I’m Going to the Defenders of the Triforce – Real Escape Game X Legend of Zelda!

Despite not having talked about this much on the site, I’m a fan of escape rooms. They’re an awesome way to partake in a video game like experience in real life. So when I heard that Nintendo was teaming up with Real Escape Game to make a Legend of Zelda themed escape challenge, I was immediately sold.

This touring escape challenge is in my city this weekend, so my friends and family will be there to try it out. Will report back on how things went!

Ranking The Mario Kart Series Worst to Best

With Mario Kart 8 Deluxe out now on the Nintendo Switch, players are zipping through the Mushroom Kingdom yet again for a chance at asserting themselves as the best behind a kart or motorcycle. Now that the series is decades old with over 10 titles in its lineup, let’s rank them worst to best!

Note: Mario Kart GP and GP 2 are not here. I have played both, but not nearly enough to rank them fairly.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Review

Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U almost became the definitive title in the franchise. While it stunned players with gorgeous visuals and racing that has been fine-tuned over the course of decades of innovation, its half-hearted battle mode that didn’t feature battle-mode-specific tracks was the worst in the series.

Years later, Nintendo addresses this flaw in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch with an all-new battle mode. For good measure, the game also features all of the DLC from the Wii U, a handful of new characters and a few minor gameplay updates as well. Better late than never, as this is the new pinnacle for the franchise and the genre.
