Fatal Frame’s Lost Decade

2005 was a very different landscape for horror games; Resident Evil 4 had only been released that year and exclusively on Gamecube, the now ubiquitous 'over-the-shoulder' view was fresh and new, the emergence of J-horror films in the western market revitalized the genre for a few years, and the cult-classic horror game franchise Fatal Frame would see it's last North American release for an entire decade. It's been a long ten years for a franchise that was held by fans in the same regard as heavy hitters Resident Evil and Silent Hill.

20 Years Later, The Lost Zelda Games Still Live

The Legend of Zelda is about as ubiquitous as it gets. Whether they keep up with the series or not, 10- to 35-year olds across the continent will profess their undying love for at least one of the titles. It's no surprise then that Zelda and it's legacy are particularly well-documented. Just take a look at 2013's Hyrule Historia; a compendium of art assets, developer interviews, and in-game lore that spans the first 25 years of Zelda's lifespan.

Halo 5 Collector's Edition Disc Upgrade Process

It's no secret that I'm a massive Halo fan. The amount of Halo related toys, games, and other items I have aside from the games is borderline obscene. The long awaited Halo 5: Guardians is a few short weeks from release and with any major AAA release, there's also an accompanying pricey Collector's Edition that nets you a bunch of physical goodies alongside the game for the massive fans like myself.

Mega Man Legends is coming to PSN!

Mega Man fans rejoice! Mega Man Legends is set to be released next week on PlayStation Network. The title will be available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

For players unfamiliar with Legends, Mega Man Legends was the first 3D spin-off of the Mega Man series.

For the last two years, Capcom has steadily released Mega Man PSOne classics on the PSN. A brief timeline:

Razer Mamba Tournament Edition [Review]

While people tend to have personal preferences or brand loyalties when mice and keyboards, I've always steered towards the Razer peripherals. They have always been of a great build quality and there are sure to be a suited match based on your wants and needs when it comes to their products.

I've been a part of the Razer camp for quite some time. Even now,  looking to the side of my desk, I can see my older DeathAdder, Ouroboros, and Naga mice waiting to be used again; based on my gaming needs at any given time.

HALO Master Chief's Helmet - Metal Earth 3D Model

I'm not only an avid gamer but a collector as well, when it comes to anything video game related. So, when I was in a local store and saw a Halo 3D metal model kit, I had to grab it and see what it was all about.

These come in a flat package with all the parts you need cut into the sheet(s) of metal and you're tasked with removing the individual parts from the sheet, then tediously putting it together correctly via the included instructions.

Pokemon GO - The End of Pokemon As We Know It

Two words: Pokemon GO.

If that didn't shoot a spike of endorphins into your brain then chances are you don't know what Pokemon GO is yet. Pokemon GO is the MMO Pokemon fanatics have been waiting for since the advent of the massive multiplayer online genre. As if that wasn't amazing enough, Pokemon GO is an augmented reality game that will be available...


Nintendo’s original selfie machine is reborn with BitBoy

There is something deeply 'Nintendo' about the Game Boy Camera. It mirrors the design philosophy of the Game Boy so well that it's staggering to think about. This was a digital camera built out of the cheapest possible components built for a decade-old handheld (that even at the time of it's release in '89, was already made out of budget parts) that could take 'photographs' in four shades of grey. It is pure Nintendo design that made the idea of the Game Boy Camera possible.

Rise of the Tomb Raider [X-15 Preview]

No new Rise of the Tomb Raider footage was shown at X-15, but developer Crystal Dynamic did reveal some interesting new details about Lara Croft's next big adventure.

Players can expect a much bigger world in Rise of the Tomb Raider. While speaking at X-15 in Toronto on Wednesday, lead combat designer Philippe Therien explained the game would be three times bigger than its predecessor.

Gigantic [X-15 Hands On]

One of the biggest surprises at X-15 was the strong showing for one of Microsoft's newest IPs, Gigantic.

This free-to-play MOBA shooter from Motiga first caught my eye on the showroom floor with it's bright and colourful artwork. I had to have passed their booth five or six times before finally sitting down to try it out.
