Every video game launching this fall that you need to know about

By on September 25, 2016 at 12:30 PM.

As of this week, fall has officially begun. That means a whole lot of things—changing colors, cooler temperatures, the weirdest presidential election of all time—but more importantly, it means that a truckload of video games are coming out.

And by truckload, I means dozens and dozens for each and every platform (save for the Wii U). But rather than list all of the titles, we’ve decided to round up the best of the best; the ones you really need to be looking out for this fall.

Report: Nintendo’s NX has entered production

We’re in the home stretch of 2016, and it’s been a busy couple of months for the video game industry. Microsoft brought HDR gaming and 4K video to the fore with the Xbox One S in August. Sony responded with a console refresh of its own in September, along with the announcement that it would launch the first ever 4K gaming console, the PlayStation 4 Pro, in November.

All this time, Nintendo has been eerily silent.

Pokemon games are officially coming to Nintendo’s NX

The Pokemon Company’s chief executive has confirmed that his company will develop games for Nintendo’s upcoming NX console. This won’t come as much of a shock to anyone who has been keeping up with the unprecedented success of Pokemon Go, but the company’s ties to the NX were previously just a rumor.

Forza Horizon 3 Review

Forza Horizon 3 review: Racing toward perfection

Forza Horizon 3 review: Racing toward perfection

By on September 20, 2016 at 9:00 AM.

The best compliment that I can pay to Forza Horizon 3 is that I often forgot I wasn’t playing Forza Horizon 2. If you read my review for Horizon 2 back in 2014, you know that it was my favorite game of that year. Horizon 3 is a prettier, smoother, more expansive game from nearly every angle, but it doesn’t lose an iota of what made its predecessor that best open world racing game of all time.

ReCore Review

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.

Bethesda Sony Fallout 4 Skyrim Mods

Bethesda: Sony won’t let us bring mods to Fallout 4 or Skyrim on PS4

Bethesda: Sony won’t let us bring mods to Fallout 4 or Skyrim on PS4

When Bethesda showed off Fallout 4 at E3 2015, the biggest surprise of all was that user-created mods would be coming to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for the very first time. It took some time, but Bethesda was finally able to bring mods to Xbox One in May — just a month after their were made available on PC.

Unfortunately, mod support on PS4 had hit a snag, but Bethesda assured fans that it would arrive soon enough. On Friday, September 9th, Bethesda backtracked on that promise, revealing that mods wouldn’t come to PS4 after all.

PS4 Pro FAQ

Everything the PS4 Pro can and can’t do

Everything the PS4 Pro can and can’t do

By on September 8, 2016 at 12:32 PM.

Before the end of the year, Sony will have launched not one, but two brand new PlayStation 4 consoles. The slim model will simply replace the launch PS4 as the new standard console on store shelves, but the PS4 Pro will be a genuine upgrade, bringing new features and improvements to the PlayStation 4.

At the keynote event in New York City on Wednesday, Sony spent far more time showing off 4K games than it did actually discussing what the PS4 Pro could do, so we’ve decided to collect every piece of information we could find about the high-end console and wrap it all into a convenient bullet point list.

Sony officially reveals price and release date for new, slim PS4

Although it had already been repeatedly spoiled by leaks from around the internet, Sony officially announced a new, slim PS4 at the PlayStation Meeting on September 7th. As expected, the sleeker PS4 model isn’t so much an upgrade as a hardware redesign, but there are a few interesting tweaks and additions worth noting.
