ReCore review: The heart of the matter

ReCore review: The heart of the matter

By on September 19, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

Jak and Daxter is one of my favorite game series of all time.

In fact, I’ve always been drawn to character-driven, 3D action platformers — the games that spawned from Super Mario 64 and its ilk. There’s something infinitely entertaining about running, jumping and gliding around a three-dimensional space when the laws of physics don’t apply quite like they’re supposed to.

This is why I had so much fun playing ReCore, a new Xbox One console exclusive platformer from Comcept. It’s also why I still haven’t given up on ReCore, despite the countless inexplicable design decisions and glaring technical flaws that threaten to derail the experience at nearly every turn.

Emmy Awards 2016: All the big winners (and losers) from the Emmys

Did you catch the 2016 Emmy Award show last night? Of course you didn’t. It’s not that the awards show was on too late, or even that you were busy watching something else on TV… it’s simply that almost no one really cares about watching awards shows anymore. There are roughly 1,348 different awards ceremonies every week now, and they’ve grown so tiresome that the American public has grown numb to the spectacle.

Of course, you’re still curious to find out if your favorite show, actor or actress took home any big awards. And were there any big surprises? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Below, you’ll find a complete list of every single winner — and every single loser — from the Emmy Awards 2016. More →

Niantic CEO discusses exciting new features coming to Pokemon Go

In the wake of the Buddy Pokemon update, it’s worth taking a moment to reflect on the unprecedented success of Pokemon Go.

The augmented reality game that started as an April Fool’s Day prank has now amassed over 500 million downloads more quickly than any other app in the history of mobile gaming. Despite losing a majority of its daily active users, the game is still the top grossing app across both iOS and Android platforms.

To call it a hit would be a massive understatement.

There’s no more iconic YouTube phenomenon than a crazy Finnish man and his hydraulic press, and luckily, it seems Apple delivers to his house.

PlayStation VR Demo Disc

Demo disc included with PlayStation VR will feature 18 games

Demo disc included with PlayStation VR will feature 18 games

The biggest issue with VR to date has been the lack of content.

Considering the fact that VR is a relatively new medium, this doesn’t come as much of a shock, but it’s certainly one of the primary reasons that the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive haven’t taken off. But even more frustrating than the lack of content is the difficulty one experiences trying to find any decent content in the first place.

Thankfully, with the launch of PlayStation VR later this year, Sony is going to avoid this issue altogether with an old-school solution.
