My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

First leaked over the weekend thanks to some PS4 trophy listings, Capcom released a statement to Eurogamer.com that Dead RisingDead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record will all be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Beastmen Race Coming to Total War: WARHAMMER Next Week

I've been spending a lot of time playing Total War: WARHAMMER these past few days. I have fond memories of the tabletop version back when I was in high school and, for me, Creative Assembly has done an excellent job of translating that into a video game that captures many of its ideas and mechanics. While not all of the playable races/factions may be present, CA has plans to add at least one more, the Beastmen, very soon.

We knew that more expansions for LEGO Dimensions would be coming this fall, including a new "story pack" expansion based on the 2016 Ghostbusters movie. Thanks to a Twitter user snapping a quick picture from an Argos (a UK digital retailer) catalogue, we now also know that the title will be getting a "story pack" based on the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie.
