Nyren's Corner: I'm Finally Sold on Battlefield V Nyren's Corner: I'm Finally Sold on Battlefield V

Over the last 5 months, the conversation surrounding Battlefield V has been dominated by the developers inclusive, yet divisive decisions regarding the multiplayer portion of the game. And to be honest, despite how much I wanted a World War II Battlefield game, the game they were advertising just wasn’t what I had…

In the world of fantasy stories, you have two kinds:

Nyren's Corner: Nintendo Switch 2.0 Rumors Have Returned Nyren's Corner: Nintendo Switch 2.0 Rumors Have Returned

Over the past week or so, rumors have begun to crop up thanks to Wall Street Journal Japan. The insinuation, as with previous rumors, was that Nintendo will be releasing a revised Switch model in mid to late 2019. The rumor from WSJJ was that this new Switch model would merely be a minor hardware revision with a…

Nyren's Corner: "Flavors of Youth" is a Cathartic Journey Nyren's Corner: "Flavors of Youth" is a Cathartic Journey

If you had told me that a co-production between a Chinese animation studio and a Japanese animation studio would be pretty good, I’d have been skeptical. While I have sufficient faith to trust the Japanese animation industry to pump out a true gem at least once a season or two, I can’t say the same about the Chinese…

Nyren's Corner: "GVMERS" is My New Favorite Youtube Channel Nyren's Corner: "GVMERS" is My New Favorite Youtube Channel

What do you get when you combine classic History Channel documentaries with video games? You get the Youtube channel “GVMERS”. It’s something I never knew I wanted until now, but the concept on its own isn’t really enough. No, what really sells this channel and its content is the narrator who reminds me of so many…

Nyren's Corner: Changes To PlayStation NOW Are Good, But Still Not Enough Nyren's Corner: Changes To PlayStation NOW Are Good, But Still Not Enough

Ever since Microsoft established the Xbox Game Pass, I’ve been saying that sooner or later other publishers will follow and create subscription services of their own that offer both past and present titles for a single monthly fee. Microsoft sweetened the deal by adding all of their upcoming first party games to the…

Nyren's Corner: I Owe Yakuza 6: The Song of Life An Apology Nyren's Corner: I Owe Yakuza 6: The Song of Life An Apology

Back in 2012, I discovered the Yakuza series through Yakuza 3 on the PlayStation 3. I’ve been in love with the series ever since and have played every game released in the US to date, but Yakuza 6 is the only one I went into with hesitation. In the lead up to its release in Japan back in 2016, I had read that it would…

Nyren's Corner: Microsoft Needs to Give Remedy The Greenlight on Alan Wake 2 Nyren's Corner: Microsoft Needs to Give Remedy The Greenlight on Alan Wake 2

Saying that Microsoft has a first party problem is a bit of an understatement. Sure, this year they acquired five new game studios, at least one of which was founded by Microsoft themselves. Two of those studios were already making exclusives for Microsoft(Though one of them now has double the output working on two…

Nyren's Corner: What's Next for Halo? A PC Port of Halo 5 Supposedly Nyren's Corner: What's Next for Halo? A PC Port of Halo 5 Supposedly

The Halo series history with the PC community is a bit spotty. The original Halo: Combat Evolved initially released on the XBox in 2001 exclusively, but was eventually ported to the PC thanks to Gearbox Software. This same deal happened with Halo 2 which released exclusively on the XBox in 2004 and was then ported to…

Nyren's Corner: The Yakuza Series Has Quite a Few Great Music Pieces Nyren's Corner: The Yakuza Series Has Quite a Few Great Music Pieces

Most games have music in some form or another. Some soundtracks are... really bad. Some are really old, while others are just classic. And then you have some soundtracks that are just in a league all their own. The Yakuza/Like a Dragon series falls into that last category. The fight music gets you super pumped and…

Nyren's Corner: Yakuza Kiwami 2 Has Reminded Me Why I Love the Yakuza Series Nyren's Corner: Yakuza Kiwami 2 Has Reminded Me Why I Love the Yakuza Series

Back in 2012, 6 months after I picked up my PlayStation 3, I was searching for games to play on it. I wanted more Japanese games, and one I was curious about was Yakuza 3. When the opportunity presented itself, I grabbed it and dived right in. Ever since, the Yakuza series has been one of my favorites for its…

Nyren's Corner: Shenmue Has Left Me Feeling Empty Nyren's Corner: Shenmue Has Left Me Feeling Empty

I’ve played many great games over the years, but only a handful of times have I ever finished a game, and then suddenly not want to play anything. I don’t even want to replay Shenmue. It’s not voluntary, it’s just this feeling I get when I go to play something, but can’t bring myself to actually play it or commit time…

Nyren's Review: Shenmue II - An Amazing Journey Nyren's Review: Shenmue II - An Amazing Journey

When I finished the first Shenmue last week, I wanted to wait until I had a few days off from work before digging into the second installment. I knew that it was bigger and longer, so I figured it’d take even more time to work through. That assumption was right on the nose. While the first Shenmue took me...…

Nyren's Corner: NVIDIA Has Complicated My PC Upgrade Plans Nyren's Corner: NVIDIA Has Complicated My PC Upgrade Plans

Like any PC gamer, I have plans to upgrade my PC, to make it better than it already is. That essentially means that I have to decide on what parts to buy, if they’re compatible, if the power supply is big enough, etc. I put a lot of thought into what parts I want and how long it’ll take me to afford them, either…

Nyren's Game Review: Shenmue -A Masterpiece Time Capsule Nyren's Game Review: Shenmue -A Masterpiece Time Capsule

As of May this year, I’m 22 years old, born in 1996. When Shenmue released on the Sega Dreamcast in 1999 I.... wasn’t playing it. I had been playing video games since the age of 2, and I was 3 at the time, playing Konami’s Metal Gear Solid. Two years later I would go on to play Halo: Combat Evolved at the age of 5 and…

Nyren's Corner: Shadow of the Tomb Raider NVIDIA RTX Demo Gets 50/50 Results Nyren's Corner: Shadow of the Tomb Raider NVIDIA RTX Demo Gets 50/50 Results

Yesterday, NVIDIA unveiled their Turing GPU architecture and the new technology that comes with it. In addition they announced 21 games, both new and old, that would be receiving updates to add things like real-time ray tracing and deep learning super sampling. One of their biggest showcases was Square Enix’s Shadow…

Nyren's Corner: Apparently NVIDIA Forgot to Clarify RTX Support Nyren's Corner: Apparently NVIDIA Forgot to Clarify RTX Support

Today, NVIDIA gave a very long presentation to introduce their new Turing GPU architecture, going into so much technical detail that it’d make most peoples eyes roll into the backs of their heads. After finally showing off some games that support the new real-time ray tracing technology, they displayed 21 games that…

Nyren's Corner: 4K Nintendo Switch Rumor Has Surfaced Nyren's Corner: 4K Nintendo Switch Rumor Has Surfaced

Since my earliest days on TAY, I’ve followed the rumor mill and general news surrounding the Nintendo Switch. I’m a self-admitted Switch fanboy. But even then, I’ve always felt that the Switch was a tad lacking at launch, using stock parts that NVIDIA gave to Nintendo to get it out the door. Many people thought the…

Nyren's Corner: If Quake Champions is Bethesda's Smash, Could We See Guests? Nyren's Corner: If Quake Champions is Bethesda's Smash, Could We See Guests?

If you haven’t heard the word, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the most hyped games of 2018, and it’s one of the biggest crossovers in gaming history. Once upon a time it was only Nintendo characters, but with the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, we saw the introduction of Solid Snake to the roster, a third…
