Dying Light - A Look At The Future Of Zombie Brain-Bashing

Zombies! A genre that is as undying as its slow shuffling stars.

Developer Techland, no stranger to zombie lore with their first outing Dead Island (which I was a big fan of) is creating a mighty ambitious open world zombie playground to explore, raise a little (more) hell and if a healthy dose of luck is on your side, maybe even survive. Maybe...

The Halo Hype Train

CHOO-CHOO! All aboard the Halo hype train! In a few short weeks (13 days exactly as of this post) Halo fans are getting a massive collection that we've been wanting for quite some time. It's no secret that I'm a massive Halo fan. I have all the novels, read all the backstory lore, have all the comics, multiple special Halo artworks, and enough Halo toys to probably open my own store, so to say I'm a Halo fan is an understatement. I don't usually buy into hype, but when it's for one of my favorite games ever, it's hard not to.

Speciation 101: Harvest Moon 3D: The Lost Valley and Story of Seasons

I’m just like any other human being – I love cultivating root vegetables and wooing local bachelorettes. But what you might not know is that there are TWO Harvest Moon games that are nearly ripe for plucking from the loamy soil of your local video game purveyor.

Far Cry 4: Unnecessary Animal Slaughter Simulator 2K14

As the sun set over Rook Island, I looked upon my works with joyful fatigue as the once-beleaguered native inhabitants celebrated their newfound freedom from the clutches of drug-fuelled madmen. I sniped soldiers, set C4 traps for the unaware enemy, and blew up Galapagos turtles for funsies. I wore my magical tattoos with pride as I vengefully tore through the jungles with naught but my knife and my almost pathological thirst for virtual blood.

Dear Nintendo: It's Not Me, It's You

Nintendo and I had a great relationship.

We had been together for over 20 years. As in any relationship, compromises were made on both sides, and we were happy; I invested my time and money, and Nintendo would pay it back with high-quality, fun, timeless games.

TL;DR - Sept 22 - Steam Upgrade, USFIV Omega, 900p Xbone

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.

Mighty No. 9 [First Impressions]

A couple of years back I had the opportunity to attend GDC (Game Developers Conference) thanks to my time here at Shogun. To this day I hold it to be the epitome of gaming conventions. If you have the opportunity to attend, you simply must.

TowerFall: Ascension Interview With Matt Thorson

When the OUYA launched back in June of 2013, people were asking “what can I do on the OUYA that I can’t do on my Android phone, or PC?” Though, they were usually adding a few F-bombs and other choice expletives to their phrasing… No matter how the question was asked, the answer was usually the same “play TowerFall”. TowerFall encapsulated the essence of what the OUYA tried to accomplish, fun local multiplayer experiences that didn’t rely on shiny graphics to impress.
