About Me:

I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Nintendo Announces Expansion Pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
February 14, 2017

Nintendo is calling The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild one of the largest, most engaging video games it has ever created. People outside the company haven't had a lot of time with the game to decide one way or the other, since it won't arrive in stores until March 3, but so far, it's looking like the company's description of its potential blockbuster might even be accurate. Even so, there's always room for more.

Today, Nintendo released a press release to announce that more is indeed on the way. You'll be able to purchase it starting on the game's release date, which snags you two sets of downloadable content as they become available later in the year.

February 13, 2017

XSEED Games today announced it will release Senran Kagura: Estival Versus on PC next month, alongside Ikki Tousen premium DLC for not only the new PC version of the game, but the existing PlayStation 4 and Vita editions.

According to a press release, the Ikki Tousen DLC will let players participate in the action as Sun Ce, Lu Bu, and Guan Yu. It's part of the apparent 1-year celebration of the game's initial console launch in North America.

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus isn't the first Senran Kagura game to hit the PC (both Estival Versus and Bon Appetit! - Full Course preceded it), but the upcoming launch is noteworthy for continuing the recent trend that sees Japanese developers porting console hits to the PC platform.

Conan Exiles Enjoys Tremendous Early Access Success
February 10, 2017

There's a pretty good chance that you've heard of Conan Exiles, the new Early Access title from Funcom that was pretty much all some PC gamers could talk about earlier this week. The hook? Lots of penis. It turns out that while plenty of people are happy to see artists lovingly render bosoms, some of them feel robbed when there's little or no representation for other members of the anatomy.

So anyway, Conan Exiles has been doing very well for itself by catering to those people (and probably also by appealing to other people who like Conan games in general, regardless of the number and variety of genitalia depicted). According to an email sent to press earlier today, the game managed to sell an impressive 320,000 copies on Steam in just its first week, which isn't bad at all.

An Important Update About Your Old HonestGamers Password
January 20, 2017

In late June of last year, I noticed (because I could hardly help but notice) that the site had been compromised.

At that time, I recommended that you change your HonestGamers password, and that you also update your password on other sites if you were using the same password elsewhere.
