Halo Wars 2’s campaign will be the perfect chance for new players to jump into the franchise, according to 343 Industries’ studio head.


X16 Preview: Halo Wars 2 Multiplayer

I was pretty excited when I found out Halo Wars 2 would be playable at X16.


X16 Preview: Dead Rising 4

It’s been a long time since I’ve delved into the world of zombie mayhem, but with a steady mix of the undead and Christmas, Dead Rising 4 is sure to be the game that brings me back.

X16 Preview: Cuphead

Like any great run and gun action franchise, Cuphead challenges players to die, jump and die again to learn how the many creatures in the game work.


I was excited to see Cuphead on the showroom floor at X16 in Toronto. Last year, I only briefly got a chance to play it, so I was determined to take another stab.

DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition Launch Trailer

A little later on today we'll be posting up our full review of DmC (Devil May Cry): Definitive Edition, but in the meantime I figured "what the hell" we'll also show off the launch trailer for the "next gen" remaster. Mostly, this is for two reasons 1) I love me a well done launch trailer, and 2) I love me some Devil May Cry.

Super Smash Bros. 3DS [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

Smash Bros. 3DS may not even ATTEMPT a reinvention of the wheel with the latest iteration of the fan-favourite... but it at least devotes a noticable amount of effort into shining everything up nice and pretty like for the 3DS debut of the ridiculously hype cross-brand fighter. That being said, avoid the 3D feature at all costs.

The Pros: 

+Massive cross-brand character roster
+Solid Play Controls
+Full featured game, with plenty of new modes/items
+Fantastic attention to detail

The Cons: 

-Insanely obnoxious 3D
-Inherent feel of missing something, due to the time-gap with the Wii U version
-Poor platform choice for a 'serious' fighter Rating :

Hello and good-evening for those late-nighters that have stumbled in upon the return of Shogun Gamer and in specific it’s semi-reoccurring truncation of the news named TL;DR. If you’re joining us here for the first time in this segment the principle is simple enough: There are some news segments that get launched out there that aren’t big enough for our editorialized articles, but we still feel the need to bring to you in some form.

Air Behr Dojo - Episode 2 - Option Select 101

Hello again fighting game fans! Air is back again for the second round of training.

Today’s highlights include a whole lot of EVO in the form of wrap-ups of the tournaments as well as some of the announcements that launched during the show, and a bevy of new video game trailers for you to feast your eyeballs on.

Air Behr Dojo - Episode 1

Last week we premiered our new partnership with The League of Manchildren for a new podcast Gamers Under the Stairs. This week I’m proud to start Shogun off with another new show from Canada’s own Air! For those not familiar Air is probably the best Street Fighter player in Canada, and one of the best Ryu players in the world.
