The Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic franchise is a legendary series that affected the course of gaming history and solidified their development studios as RPG juggernauts. Given the clout this franchise holds, one might expect greenlighting further entries would be an easy task. To quote Thanos, “Reality is often disappointing.” The KOTOR franchise

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that MultiVersus is defined by the quality of its roster. After all, that’s true of pretty much every fighting game. However, as we’ve previously discussed, MultiVersus roster of licensed characters is no mere gimmick. Every character in the game was designed to function as a fighter, and making the

MultiVersus really puts the “multi” in “multiplayer.” After all, most of the platform fighter’s chaotic matches consist of two players using every power, strategy, and combo available to them to take down another team of two trying to do the same. Since teamwork is at the forefront of the MultiVersus experience, it shouldn’t come as

In 1991, Nintendo controlled an astonishing 85 percent of the American video game market.

Activision Blizzard is currently under investigation following accusations of harassment, discrimination, and fostering a hostile work environment. You can read more about the investigation here. Hearthstone‘s new Murder at Castle Nathria expansion is certainly thematically exciting (who doesn’t love a good murder mystery?), but there are serious questions about how the expansion will impact the game’s

While enemies and bosses are the beating heart of any Soulsborne experience, Elden Ring included, some Soulsborne characters are traditionally more powerful (and much more important) than others. In Elden Ring, few characters are more powerful, or more important, than the fabled demigods. According to the game’s lore, demigods are to blame for nearly all

In theory, superheroes should be the perfect video game characters. They’re powerful, they’re colorful, and they exist in elaborate worlds filled with objectives and things that are trying to kill them. Despite their potential, though, there are really only a handful of truly great superhero games. That being the case, you’d think that even pretty

Mascot fighters live and die by the quality of their rosters. Super Smash Bros. probably wouldn’t be half as popular as it is if the game didn’t feature an all-star cast of characters voiced by fitting actors.

There’s a degree to which Stray will always be “the cat game.” For quite some time after BlueTwelve Studio’s new project was announced, it was widely known as “that cyberpunk-ish game where you play as a kitty.” Even after Stray was finally released earlier this week to widespread critical acclaim and incredible early player counts, the
