Rise is a fantastic new entry into the already amazing Monster Hunter series. The newest game offers more than enough hunting, crafting, exploration and adventuring to enthrall both newcomers to the genre as well as grizzled vets looking for their next big challenge.
This week, Vincent takes on his JRPG arch nemesis in Arc Rise Fantasia while chowing down on delicious Elite Chef Brigade. It is a tantalizing tale of bad voice acting, al dente food puns, and surprisingly fun games that most gamers would never know about.
This week on the GiN Lounge, the guys examine modern gaming conventions that drive them nuts. This includes day one patches and releasing broken games. Neal also swears there is a correlation between Butterfingers and Final Fantasy VII DLC, and only time will tell if he’s right about something for once.
This week Vincent gets down with the funk in Elite Beat Agents and grooves to sound of bone crunching in Draglade
This week Vincent looks at a GameCube robot smashing game and an PlayStation rougelite and realizes that maybe, just maybe, it might be time to take a small break from the rougelites. It’s time for One Step From Eden and Custom Robo this week.
The guys are back and talking about the news from Nintendo Direct. This includes new launches, planned releases and Neal not being able to remember the name of a game with a shape in it. Another usual day in the lounge.
This week our Save State columnist becomes Pauline Bonaparte in Banner of the Maid (which he accidentally bought) and then goes dual sword slicing in the critically underappreciated Now More Heroes 2.
Those who miss the halcyon days of platforming greatness on the NES will also immediately fall in love with Cyber Shadow. It’s an action packed adventurous game that is packed with nostalgia, but also packs its own punch.
The GiN Lounge guys are back and talking Pokémon due to Pokémon Snap being given an April release date for the Nintendo Switch. This show is dedicated to thoughts on the up and down history of various secondary Pokémon titles and how the guys feel about them. But mostly, its about how great Snap might be!
Mr. Prepper is a clever game where your character is preparing for the worst. It’s still in beta, but we had so much fun with it we decided to dig into the state of the game this week so you could decide if you wanted to check it out.
