Seedi Update: Apt Name, Poorly Spelled

Back in October, I wrote about what I termed the HD Retro movement. In the article, I highlighted two systems that were seeking crowdfunding and were looking to capitalize on the current retro gaming boom. One of them, the Dreamcade Replay, was successfully crowdfunded on Kickstarter and has been generally treated favorably. The other, the Seedi, hasn’t fared as well. Its Indiegogo campaign is clo...[Read More]

Mega Man 11 Announced

I feel like I was specifically targeted. Like, Capcom wanted me to talk about a video game they were hyping up. They didn’t tell me directly, but they got me at my soft spot. It would not normally be a big deal, except that the game they decided to announce was guaranteed to get a response from me. Mega Man 11. On the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Fuck! Capcom’s been on my shit...[Read More]

Losing My Religion: Video Games, Loot Boxes, and R.E.M. in More than 3000 Words

R.E.M. sang about it. I feel it I promise that I don’t want to keep talking about loot boxes in games. But those fucking loot boxes keep showing up in my games and fucking shit up! Recently, I began to download the free trial for Destiny 2. I had been on the fence with the game, mainly because I absolutely suck at FPS games. I tried the original game back in the day, using my son’s account on my X...[Read More]

Never Played: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

A fun game wrapped around a bitter shell I haven’t revisited this series in a while. Why not jump in with a recent game I’ve wanted to play but refused to buy yet. My Digital Crack podcast-mate Punisher pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite and picked it up with glee. In addition to getting to play the latest entry in Capcom’s Versus series, he was excited...[Read More]

Star Wars: Battlefront II Called Out for Borderline-Abusive Game Mechanics (UPDATED)

I’ve tried to stay away from the loot box shitstorm after a few articles highlighting their insidious bullshit. Apparently, EA wants everyone to keep talking about it with regards to Star Wars: Battlefront II. So I will. These bastards want the venom? I’ll dispense the venom happily! EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront II has been fighting negative publicity for a couple of weeks. Their loot box system, w...[Read More]

BlizzCon 2017: World of Warcraft and Less Important Stuff

Last year, I ponied up for my BlizzCon 2016 Virtual Ticket. I’m not posh enough to afford a trip to California, hotel stay for that weekend, and two tickets for BlizzCon (my daughter would disown me if I went without her). Besides, there was little news I cared about. I only wanted news on Overwatch and Diablo III. Those were the games I was playing. StarCraft II was nearing its end, and I never j...[Read More]

Retro Review: House of the Dead (Saturn)

Release Date: March 1998 Developer: Sega AM1 R&D Division Publisher: SEGA of America, Inc. Last year, I decided to do a Halloween-themed Retro Review. I took a look at Castlevania: Symphony of the Night because I love the game. But in a twist, I chose to look at the Japanese SEGA Saturn version. The game was different enough compared to the U.S. PlayStation version that it made it a novel revi...[Read More]

Destiny 2 on PC Swings Banhammer Early

Destiny 2 officially released this past Tuesday on PC and saw heaps of initial praise. I figured that would be a foregone conclusion. I’m not a fan of the series; I’m not even a fan of FPSes. But I felt there was no way an MMO FPS series like Destiny wouldn’t do well on the platform. The series is essentially the unholy marriage of Halo and Phantasy Star Online. I figured there was no way that wou...[Read More]

Loot Boxes Grow in Prevalence and Insidiousness

What ya buyin’? I’m sure most everyone is sick of reading about loot boxes. Trust me, I’m tired of having to bitch about them. Trust me, we’re all going to hate the prevalence of these little gambling boxes way more soon. I recently lambasted Microsoft and Turn 10 for introducing loot boxes into Forza Motorsport 7. Back in August, I did the same to Monolith’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of War. It ...[Read More]

Cuphead Review

When I confirmed my purchase of Cuphead on the Windows store, I let out an audible squeal. I instantly regretted the noise. I want to judge the game based on its merits, not my excitement for it. But I had a palpable amount of bias when purchasing this game. I’ve been hankering for Cuphead for well on over a year. It’s hard to not squeal when something you want that much is attainable. Seriously, ...[Read More]

Microsoft Joins the Loot Box Fad with Forza Motorsport 7 (Updated)

Yet another game ruined by gambling economics I’ve already ripped Middle Earth: Shadow of War for the inclusion of loot boxes. I’ve already ripped my Digital Crack mates for arguing in favor of Overwatch loot boxes. Today I set my sights on Forza Motorsport 7. Microsoft has decided to infect the game with the loot boxes that seem to be all the rage nowadays. I can sorta-kinda forgive the loot boxe...[Read More]

Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Collector’s Edition Unboxing

Infinitely Disappointed Back during PlayStation Experience 2016, Capcom announced Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. I’m not a major fighting game fanatic, but I’ve enjoyed playing previous games in the series. So I was looking forward to the game. Then Capcom announced the different versions available for pre-order. One version immediately caught my eye: the $200 Collector’s Edition. It was expensive, ...[Read More]
