The Master Chief Collection is Getting Two Announcements This Month The Master Chief Collection is Getting Two Announcements This Month

Over four years ago, Microsoft and 343 Industries, the current custodians of the Halo franchise, announced and released Halo: The Master Chief Collection. This collection contained the four numbered entries of the Halo series, including the Anniversary editions of Halo 1 & 2. There was also a functioning online…

Nyren's Corner: My Thoughts on Pokemon Sword & Shield Nyren's Corner: My Thoughts on Pokemon Sword & Shield

When the Nintendo Switch was first revealed as a home console-handheld hybrid device, it was inevitable that Pokemon would make the jump from the 3DS to the Nintendo Switch. Many expected this game to release in 2018, but instead we got spin-off titles while the core titles were given extra time. Speculation was…

Nyren's Corner: What Will See at the Inevitable Nintendo Direct? Nyren's Corner: What Will See at the Inevitable Nintendo Direct?

We’re almost a month and a half into 2019 and we have yet to have a proper Nintendo Direct for 2019 to show us what we should be looking forward to this year for Nintendo Switch(Sorry 3DS, you’re pretty much done.). It’s not that we don’t know a few of the games slated for release in 2019, but their release dates are…

Nyren's Anime Review: Planetarian - Short but Beautiful Nyren's Anime Review: Planetarian - Short but Beautiful

I’m a fan of visual novel developer Key’s works, both in their original and animated forms. They’re beautiful romance stories filled with life and laughter. The emotions begin to hit you not too long into the stories, but both Kanon and Clannad, the two I’m familiar with, are longer form stories so there’s plenty of…

Nyren's Corner: Kingdom Hearts III Potentially Hints at a Versus XIII Revival in Some Form Nyren's Corner: Kingdom Hearts III Potentially Hints at a Versus XIII Revival in Some Form

Tetsuya Nomura, director of the Kingdom Hearts series and the current director of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, is known for longer than normal development cycles. Before work on Kingdom Hearts III began, Nomura was the director of another project at Square Enix, the long delayed Final Fantasy Versus XIII which…

Nyren's Corner: I Love Games That Require or Encourage Relationship Building Nyren's Corner: I Love Games That Require or Encourage Relationship Building

Sometimes, games are great when everything is set in stone and laid out before you. And sometimes, games are even greater when they let you define how you relate to other characters in the game. When I first played Fire Emblem Awakening I was immediately sucked in by the support system, not just for the bonuses in…

Nyren's Corner: Resident Evil 2 Remake is Refreshing... and Terrifying Nyren's Corner: Resident Evil 2 Remake is Refreshing... and Terrifying

So, full disclosure, I’ve never played a Resident Evil game before, not unless the demo of Resident Evil 6 counts. Though depending on who you ask, RE6 isn’t a true Resident Evil game anyway. Despite being born in 1996 and owning a Sony PlayStation, playing demos of games like MediEvil, Metal Gear Solid, and Tomb…

Nyren's Corner: A Switch Successor is Not the Same as a Switch Revision Nyren's Corner: A Switch Successor is Not the Same as a Switch Revision

Over the past two years, even before the Nintendo Switch was announced, there were rumblings of a SKU that was more powerful than what we ended up getting at launch. These rumors have persisted throughout the last two years with many claiming that “inside sources” have confirmed the existence of a newer Nintendo…

Nyren's Corner: Dragon Ball Super - Broly Suggests an Interesting Implication for Super's Future (SPOILERS) Nyren's Corner: Dragon Ball Super - Broly Suggests an Interesting Implication for Super's Future (SPOILERS)

I went to go see Dragon Ball Super: Broly when it first hit theaters in the US this past Wednesday, and it’s one of the best Dragon Ball films, if not THE best. But while I was riding the hype train throughout, I failed to pick up on a few things that, thankfully, TeamFourStar did and pointed out in their spoiler…

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…
