Devil May Cry 5 The last Devil May Cry game we played excluding the reboot was DMC 4. Back then, the franchise still used very video game looking models and rendering so even though the game was stylish as hell, it did look like an old PlayStation 2 game. However, with the help of the RE Engine, Devil May Cry 5 is not only stylish from a gameplay perspective, but it’s also an absolute treat to look at. https://youtu.be/4kRwyoWRQYU In fact, it should be a crime how the game combines the most arcade-y video game-like…

We’ve seen enough of Hollywood adapting all our favorite video games into their big-budget movie productions. It’s about high time that we get something back from them right? That’s where the idea of movies being converted into video games comes in. Here are a few popular and even unpopular movies that could actually stand to do very well as video games. Movies That Could Be Great Video Games The following are some movies that we think could make for some really for video games: Equilibrium Before we came to knew him as Batman, Christian Bale was still kicking ass in another lesser-known setting. That setting was equilibrium. The movie plotline wasn’t anything special, you could substitute it with another like Wanted for example. Honorable fraternity of assassins and all. However, it was the gun-fu or “Guntaka” of the movie that really sold me the idea of seeing it as a…

While we got to appreciate absolute works of art in 2019 in the form of Sekiro or Devil May Cry 5, there were also several titles that were slept on. By this I mean great games that didn’t get the recognition they deserved. Whether this was due to bad marketing or poor business choices, the focus is on the quality of the actual games themselves. Not the stories surrounding them. Underrated Games Of 2019 Metro Exodus What happened to Metro Exodus truly was a shame. For those of you that don’t know, the game was review bombed and ignored after Deep Silver’s stupid idea to make the game an Epic Store exclusive. I was one of the few consumers that luckily pre-ordered the game on Steam (for which they canceled the pre-load as a big fuck you to those that pre-ordered) and the game was great. Metro Exodus captures the…

Controversy has become a pretty loose term in today’s generation; with some minor things being deemed a major issue while major issues being brushed aside as minor. The way we take different kinds of news is entirely subjective. There have been plenty of moments in 2019 that made us go “what the f**K.” From the continuing Fallout 76 debacles to Blizzard’s China worship. Let’s look back in hindsight to what the Video Game Industry consumers deemed the biggest controversies of 2019.

If you’re only a watcher of the show, Vesemir was an old Witcher who served as a mentor to Geralt. Everything the White Wolf knows how to do was actually bestowed upon him by Vesemir. Therefore, who would we be able to trust with the role of our beloved uncle Witcher? Here are five picks. Who Should Play Vesemir In The Witcher Netflix Series Jonathan Banks The profile of…
