Zach is a 23 year old gaymer living in Los Angeles, working in education and trying to get his tabletop game designs off the ground. His focus in videogaming is mostly in rpgs, puzzle games, casual to medium fighters, and anything that seems to have an interesting story. If it has a cool story, Zach will learn it.

His other focus, of course, is tabletop gaming. Learning to design board and card games has given him a new respect for game designers everywhere. He loves the freedom that these kinds of games allow, giving players the ability to play how they might truly see themselves.

Adam Jensen returns in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Square Enix and Eidos’ Deus Ex: Makind Divided, the sequel to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, has been in development for some time but with little in the way of updates on its progress.

Star Ocean 5 first look!

Square Enix has been teasing a brand new game for some time now and today, thanks to Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu, we know what it is: Star Ocean 5.

The game’s full name is Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness and it’s coming to both the PS3 and PS4. The last Star Ocean game was in 2009 and was a bit of a flop, so it’s very exciting to see Square taking a chance on this franchise again. The new game is being developed by Tri-Ace who made the original Star Ocean game.

Splatoon Round-Up!

The April 1st Nintendo Direct has given us more information about the cute new shooter coming soon to Wii U. Splatoon, in case you don’t remember, is an online 8 player third-person action shooter where the goal is to claim the most turf for your turn by covering every inch of the stage with your team’s color ink. You can also turn into a squid, allowing you to quickly move throughout your team’s ink (refilling your own ink canisters in the process). This allows players to swim up walls and secure higher ground to better protect their turf while also lending support to their teammates.

With all of the new information from the Nintendo Direct as well as what the developers have been releasing, I think it’s time to compile all of it into one easy to drool over article! Here we go!
