Feature | An Interview With DEAD OR ALIVE 6 Director, Yohei Shimbori

There aren’t many games that I would mess with my week’s schedule to play, but fighting games will usually do it, especially if it’s this game and it comes with a DEAD OR ALIVE 6 interview with director, Yohei Shimbori.

Walking into the interview area I’m confronted by series director Shimbori dressed as Bayman with a scar so convincing I could have sworn that it just happened to be a coincidence. After showing me through the menus and running through some combo challenges, I got to ask him some questions about the upcoming title and its development.

Feature | My Top 10 Resident Evil Games

I have been obsessed with Resident Evil recently, and I’m not alone what with the remake of the second main title landing to incredible critical and commercial response. It got me thinking though, with this new title, where would it place in my Top 10 Resident Evil Games of all time?

A couple of caveats about this list before I start … Firstly, full on remakes of games are counted as separate titles but ports like, say, Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition are not. Secondly, in the case of ports of a title, such as Resident Evil: Revelations HD, I will consider all titles under that umbrella (hehe) as one game. Finally, this is my list, but feel free to discuss anywhere on the internet. It’s time to once again to enter the world of survival horror. Good luck.

Feature | Miqo’te Got The Cream – A Newbie At Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest Paris 2019

I’m relatively new to Final Fantasy XIV, beginning the game at the tail end of last year, after the first trailer for Shadowbringers finally brought me into the fold after abstaining for as long as I could. You see, I knew that I would likely become pretty addicted once I started, so I tried to put off the game despite knowing that I would likely really enjoy it.

Feature | The Top Five Best Kingdom Hearts Worlds

Kingdom Hearts III is here, after what feels like three million years. As I put my head to the task of choosing the worst worlds in the series just last week, it stands to reason that I also had favourites instead of just hating everything about it. So here it is, my Top Five Best Kingdom Hearts Worlds.

Feature | The Top Five Worst Kingdom Hearts Worlds

It has been somewhere in the region of six and a half thousand years but Kingdom Hearts III is now here! All of the tears, all of those sub-plots, and all of those battles, come to their final point. So what better time to look back over the games so far and pick out our Worst Worlds In Kingdom Hearts? Are you strapped into your Gummi Ship? You might need to be.

RTG | Top 10 Games Of 2018!

It’s that time again, we’re on New Year’s Eve and so it’s the perfect time to look back over the year and it has been an incredible year for gaming. I’ve not even played some of the bigger titles this year, owing to becoming editor for Rice Digital, and this was still a really hard list to nail down. Also, I tried to keep it restricted in terms of genre, otherwise I would have had just a list of fighting games and JRPGs. Enough of that though, let’s just crack on!

Six Completely Serious Picks For The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC

This article was originally posted on Rice Digital on November 9th 2018.

Ever since my previous (and mostly correct, but more on that at a later date) article about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I’ve been wondering about whether there would be DLC despite the tremendous base roster. This was answered last week with Masahiro Sakurai himself confirming during the Smash Bros. Direct that there would be five future characters added to the game as downloadable content. Continue reading “Six Completely Serious Picks For The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC”
