Mike's Best of E3 2021

With few exceptions, E3 2021 was a major letdown. This shouldn't really come as a surprise, what with COVID complicating development for games across the industry. It hasn't been an easy year for anyone, so I truthfully wasn't expecting much more than what we got. That said, there were still a couple of notable games for me, so let's dive in.


What I'd Like to See in Civilization VII

While the video and thread didn't outright state that this was the end of development for Civilization VI, the tone of it all suggested a sense of finality. Whether that ends up being true or not, these are some of the things I'd like to see in the next installment of the long running 4X series.


What Are You Playing During the Pandemic? May 2021 Edition

It's a pretty weird and unsettling time in this world of ours right now. With many of us hunkering down at home, things can get downright boring at times. Fortunately, if you're someone who enjoys videogames, you likely have a backlog of games to play through or even some new titles to play in the coming days and weeks.

PCF recently released a demo for Outriders that will give players a sampling of the early game experience with the added bonus of carrying over to launch. These are some things I like (and dislike) about the Outriders demo.


Advanced Tips For Your Bravely Default II Adventures

With some considerable time invested into Bravely Default II, I've got some tips for those of you a bit further along into the game. No story spoilers, but there will be spoilers for Jobs, so keep that in mind.


Tips For Starting Out in Bravely Default II

If you can get past (or appreciate) the game's chibi art style, Bravely Default II is a great classic JRPG with dozens of hours of content to keep you busy. These are some tips to help you get started.


Triangle Strategy Might Be the Final Fantasy Tactics Sequel I've Been Waiting for

If the rest of the game lives up to this demo, Triangle Strategy may just be the Final Fantasy Tactics sequel I've been waiting 20 years for.


What Are You Playing During the Outbreak? - February 2021 Edition

It's a pretty weird and unsettling time in this world of ours right now. With many of us hunkering down at home, things can get downright boring at times. Fortunately, if you're someone who enjoys videogames, you likely have a backlog of games to play through or even some new titles to play in the coming days and weeks.


The Best Cyberpunk 2077 Mods Released (So Far)

It's no secret that Cyberpunk 2077 didn't live up to expectations, but with CDPR's release of modding support tools, modders have already gone to work at putting together some excellent additions. These are some of my favorite mods released thus far.


Disney's New Stance on Star Wars Games Opens up a Galaxy of Possibilities
