Project Resistance: hands-on TGS 2019 preview

Sep 16, 2019

Project Resistance was a surprise. Announced just a few days in advance of Tokyo Game Show, it was a welcome addition to what was shaping up to be a very limited selection of demos at Capcom. The initial announcement offered only the basic details. I understood the premise, but everything else was a mystery to me. This made for a nice change, going into a demo...

  Yakuza 7 is a departure from what came before. Series lead Kazuma Kiryu is out, to be replaced by another hard-man with a big heart, Ichiban Kasuga.

The series has long been known for its freewheeling action, but...

The Gamer’s Brain: book review

Sep 2, 2019

Book provided by PR Published two years ago, but only very recently brought to our attention, The Gamer’s Brain: How Neuroscience and UX Can Impact Video Game Design is, in all honesty, a remarkable book. The author is firmly in the “video game” camp of insisting the term is two separate words, sadly, but that’s the only criticism that can be fairly...

Playbrush: toothbrush review (yes, really)

Aug 23, 2019

Two Playbrush units and a press account with access to all games were provided by PR for the purposes of this review.  “Wait a minute”, I hear you say (my hearing’s pretty good). “Are you… are you reviewing a toothbrush?” No, of course not! I’m reviewing two toothbrushes. There is, of course, more to it than that. While gamification has...
