0 Pokémon: Let’s Go came out this weekend. Both Graev and I picked up the Let’s Go Pikachu edition because… Pikachu, duh! (We will still like you if you picked Eevee.) As Pokémon fanatics, and Nintendo Switch aficionados, we couldn’t have been more excited for the two to finally come together. Does it live up to the hype and excitement for us? First, let’s talk about some of the big questions we’ve seen out there. I had a lot of questions going in that I really couldn’t find the answers to in reviews from people who got advanced copies, so I had to wait and experience the game myself. Hopefully these help anyone out there curious about whether or not the game is fun or right for them. If I didn’t like Pokemon Go, will I like Pokemon: Let’s Go? How similar are they? As already stated, we love Pokemon, but we’re not fans of the recent Pokemon Go craze. Graev is 100% “if I have to leave my house, no … [Read more...] about ‘Pokémon: Let’s Go!’ Captures the Spirit of Pokemon
Anybody remember Empyrion Online aka Empyrion Galactic Survival? It’s one of those space sandbox multiplayer survival games that went for a Kickstarter back in 2014 but ultimately canceled it, having raised only about $26K of its $64K ask. It landed in our Betawatch and then our Make My MMO lists and then… we kinda forgot all about it. But unlike a lot of games with failed Kickstarters, this one kept going, launching on Steam’s early access program a few years ago. We checked in on the game this week and were surprised to note that it’s still being worked on. This past fall, Eleon Game Studios has been pushing out small alpha tweaks, reverting the game engine update, and previewing alpha 9. “Besides the engine upgrade, our team has been working very hard on Alpha 9. However, at this point, we do not want to reveal too much about Alpha 9 but we can already say it will be a huge game changer! Alpha 9 focuses on gameplay improvements – unlike the last … [Read more...] about Whatever happened to Empyrion Galactic Survival?
Even if you are quite happy with your current online casino, there may come a day when you want to see what else is there – much like in long-term relationships… Fortunately, with online casinos, you do not have to be exclusive and you can commit to one gaming site while still playing the field. If you are wondering why is it so important to get in on the action at the freshly launched online gaming spot, the answer is simple – welcome offers are much more generous and the new members can really benefit from an abundance of bonus cash and Free Spins. But how do you stay updated and make sure that you don’t miss out on the “grand opening” of a new online casino?

Part of me was laughing at myself. Here I was, a grown man, shuffling around my weekly schedule to come home in the middle of the day to play an MMORPG that had been out for over 11 years. And more than that, I was practically bouncing up and down because of it. For those that look at the legendary servers with crinkled expressions, at a loss as to the appeal, I must be Exhibit A in foolishness. What did these servers have anything to offer, really, that we couldn’t get on live? Yet for the crowds that tried to jam in the launcher the second that Anor (and later, Ithil) went live, we saw an opportunity to go back in time and enjoy a fresh start in a way that we haven’t gotten in many years. It was messy. It was glorious. It was even, at times, ugly. But that’s the usual mix for Lord of the Rings Online. Initial success Curiosity killed the cat, but it also brings MMO players who are starved for interesting stimuli to new experiences. Despite some loud forum grousing, … [Read more...] about LOTRO Legendarium: Starting on a legendary journey
Folks, we know that people have been upset about the idea that the revolution will not be televised. Thus, we’ve made sure that the revolution will be available in audio formats, including narrated audio revolution, a sixteen-track concept album by five guys who swear they absolutely love Pink Floyd, and spoken-word poetry that prominently features the word “revolution” over and over. That’s enough, right? If not, please be aware that the revolution will also be available as a coloring book, a stage show, a tie-in comic book explaining the backstories of important characters in the revolution, a dessert topping, and a late-season plot twist in one of those shows that is adapting some nerd property or another but really wants to pretend it isn’t. The Walking Dead? Sure. Let us know what other formats you’d like to experience the revolution in down in the comments of What Are You Playing.
