Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning - A Comparison

Chris got really excited when the Kingdom of Amalur: Re-Reckoning was first announced. Now that he's gone hands on, he wanted to see what the major visual differences truly were - was this remaster worthy of the full release, or can you achieve the same results by modding the base game on PC?

Not So MMO: Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris Impressions

Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris has its share of flaws, it's not a perfect game.I find that it's a rather generic RPG, with a nice paint job portraying it as Sword Art Online. It has the potential to be the perfect Sword Art Online game, if only Bandai Namco steps up to the plate and addresses some much-needed attention to certain aspects of the game.

The term WoW clone gets thrown around a lot, but does it mean what people think it means, or are they using it as a derogatory comment? Not only have I’ve seen it the past few weeks in the comments of this very column, I see it from my friends as well, and frankly it’s sad.

The answer is yes and no, and here’s why.
