Let's talk about Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It's the first game in the Echoes sub-series and the 15th Fire Emblem game; it's also a remake of 1992's Fire Emblem Gaiden, a game that released on the Famicom exclusively in Japan. But what makes it different than the rest, and why should you give it a try? Well, let's talk about that. This article is mostly about what to expect going into the game, not really a plot review or anything.
With every successful franchise comes a slew of spin-offs attempting to cash-in on the fame. A few months ago we took a look at the history of Sonic titles that are considered "main-series" games, and if you haven't seen that, I recommend you go read it before continuing this. In this article we will be looking at the extensive history of Sonic spin-offs, both good and bad.
Let's talk about Monster Hunter, Capcom's action-RPG series where you, well, hunt monsters. Monster Hunter began in 2004 on the PS2 and still goes to this day with the newest, Monster Hunter Double Cross, releasing in Japan in only a few weeks. But why am I writing this? Well, basically, I'm going to tell you why Monster Hunter is so good, and why you should give it a try. In this article we'll mostly be talking about Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Monster Hunter Generations, since the...
Many Pokémon fans have heard of Pokémon Prism, the latest and greatest rom hack, and the sequel to the equally famous Pokémon Brown. On December 21, 2016, after 8 years of development, Nintendo ordered a cease and desist against the game which resulted in the highly anticipated release being cancelled, but this would be far from the last we'd hear of Prism.
Many were surprised to see Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto take the stage to make an announcement during the Apple event, but what exactly was he there for? Well, simply put, he was there to announce that several titles featuring the iconic hero Mario would be coming to mobile starting with Super Mario Run, a brand-new touchscreen adventure. Miyamoto showed the game live during the event, and several details about the game and its future were revealed.
The Binding of Isaac is a popular game that has plenty of mods for the PC version, but none for the rest. Shortly before Vitamin was leaked, a decrypted version of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth surfaced, and a Reddit user discovered that since the files were decrypted they could be modded, although he didn't know what to do with it. That led Se7enSins' Red to look into it, and he soon discovered how to port mods for the PC version of Rebirth to the Vita version.
A few weeks back a strange new hacker team showed up on YouTube and Twitter, calling themselves Team FreeK. One of the first things they did was make a video showcasing a new homebrew application they were developing for the Vita; Vitamin. Team FreeK knew that piracy was inevitable on the Vita with HENkaku, and they wanted to be the very first to crack it, so, they did. But things don't always go as planned...
Nintendo has recently hosted a 3DS-focused Direct event, and at this event several new things were announced, including the new 3DS model known as "New Galaxy Style". But aside from that, Nintendo has also announced 3 new games coming soon, two for 3DS and one for Wii U. These games are Pikmin 3DS, Super Mario Maker 3DS, and Pikmin 4.
HENkaku was created by molecule, a team composed of modders Davee, Proxima, xyz, and YifanLu. It's primarily used for installing homebrew apps and emulators onto your Vita. HENkaku is crazy simple to install, as long as you're on firmware 3.60, all you have to do is visit their website on your Vita's browser and press install. It's that simple. HENkaku is like no other Homebrew Enabler.
Pokémon is a definitely one of the biggest franchises in gaming, from the classic Pokémon Red to the brand-new Pokémon GO, and with every successful series comes fan-made content, and this is perhaps the best fan game out there. Pokémon Uranium has supposedly been in development for 9 years now, and features 150 new Pokémon, a new region, and a whole new Pokemon type.
Sony has recently launced two big sales, and this next sale will be on both Xbox and PlayStation. This sale centers around games produced by Bethesda, and you'll be able to grab hit titles such as Doom and Skyrim for great prices. This sale will run August 2nd to August 8th, and has some great deals to offer.
Sony has recently launched a summer sale that will be run from July 27th to August 24th, but not all titles will stay on sale the entire time, so stay vigilant.

This sale will span across the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, so if you don't have the latest tech there's nothing to worry about.

As always, there will be 6 games in total; 2 for PlayStation 3, 2 for PlayStation Vita, and 2 for PlayStation 4. A full list of games can be seen inside.
Many gamers have been drowning in nostalgia lately, with many companies releasing huge throwbacks to the golden days of gaming. With that said, a british manufacturing company will be releasing their own take on the NES retro, called Sega MegaDrive/Genesis Ultimate Retro Games Handheld, which will be releasing to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise.
Many people were excited to hear that Sega would be showing off a new Sonic game for the 25th anniversary of the franchise, but what people didn't expect is for Sega to announce two games. Both games are massive throwbacks to the history of Sonic, new and old. It seems Sega really has learned from their past mistakes, and are putting all they can into these two games, which both look fantastic. Sonic Mania will cater to those who love the classics, and Project Sonic will blend classic and...
