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.

Senran Kagura: Estival Versus Is Headed to PC
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.

Nintendo Schedules Splatoon 2 Event in Late March
February 12, 2017

Splatoon wound up being an unexpectedly big deal for Nintendo, and the company is certainly treating like one, in the wake of such strong performance. A sequel has already been announced for the upcoming game console, the Nintendo Switch, and now there's word that early adopters will be able to spend as much as 6 hours playing the game before it arrives in stores this summer.

According to a press release Nintendo issued earlier today, the Splatoon 2 Global Testfire event will allow players to download a demo and battle against players around the world. There will be 6 events scheduled, lasting one hour apiece, and they take place over a 3-day period:

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. I wasn't sure at the time of the exact nature of that compromise, and I'm still not completely enlightened on that matter, but it was obvious that someone gained access to at least some site accounts, including site staff accounts.

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.

Tokyo Xanadu Coming to North America and Europe in 2017
January 18, 2017

The people at Aksys Games have recently begun to suspect that North American and European gamers might like to play a localized and conveniently available version of Tokyo Xanadu, and to test that theory, they're releasing two versions of the games in those regions: Tokyo Xanadu, for PlayStation Vita, and Tokyo Xanadu eX+ for Steam and PlayStation 4.

In case you're not aware, Tokyo Xanadu is a "massive" action-RPG, and Tokyo Xanadu eX+ is an enhanced version of that base game. They're both due this fall, and both were developed by Nihon Falcom (also known for its work on The Legend of Heroes and the beloved Ys series).

Two Utawarerumono Games Headed West in 2017
January 18, 2017

You pronounce the name "Uta-wa-re-ru-mono," the helpful email told me. And the reason the helpful email told me that is simple: Atlus was announcing that it will bring two Utawarerumono games to North America and Europe in 2017. Apparently, it will be helpful if we can get the name right when discussing them in polite conversation.

For those who don't know (a group that until recently included myself), Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and Utawarerumono: Mask of Truth are visual novels that also happen to feature SRPG-style combat. It's a marriage of two game styles that some people really don't care for at all. If you're one of those people who does, though, you could be in for a real treat.
