Kenn’s Top 10 Gaming/Pop Culture Highlights & Lowlights of 2019

Mr Toffee’s Top 10 Games of 2019

Despite some people saying otherwise, 2019 is friggin' awesome games-wise. In fact, I had a hard time keeping track of a ton of games, be it the indies or the big ones. Kinda like 2017 and 2018. Maybe some honourable mentions first... Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Nintendo Switch) I'm still trying to finish up my first run, so I can't in good faith...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Untitled Goose Game

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Indivisible

The first moment I saw the art in Skullgirls, I immediately knew I wanted more. There was only a slight hint of a disappointment as I'm not a big fan of fighting games. Thankfully, developer Lab Zero Games decided to branch out with their latest and arguably greatest contribution to the JRPG space. [gallery ids="39961,32542" type="rectangular"] I...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Bloodstained – Ritual Of The Night

Oh Metroidvania genre, how fast and bountiful you've flourished. Yet for every Hollow Knight and Axiom Verge out there claiming all the praise and awards, it would be nice to see a gothic vampire-laden horror-bound "anime" version of that. Especially from the king of the genre himself, Koji "I love whips & cowboy hats" Igarashi". Thankfully, ...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Slay The Spire

Let's get one thing out of the way: I'm not a fan of digital card games. When I saw some of my friends flocking towards games like Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering Arena, I didn't even feel slightly interested. When I first saw gameplay of Slay the Spire, I wasn't impressed either. Then I gave it a try and oh boy, I'm glad I did. Slay the ...

After 11 years of waiting for a proper sequel, Capcom finally gave us the game we've all been waiting for. It isn't just one of the best action games in 2019, it's one of the action games ever made. Everyone says that Devil May Cry V is a return to form for the series after the horrible detour that was DmC: Devil May Cry and they're absolutely r...

Kakuchopurei’s Best Of 2019: Katana Zero

Any game that starts with a pitch that goes "You play as a samurai..." is already enough to convince a lot of folks. Katana Zero takes that pitch and slaps on a bunch of other really cool video game ideas. The premise is simple and cool. You play as a samurai assassin called The Dragon. It all starts out with you doing what you do best but the s...
