As the lifespan of the Xbox One and PS4 continued to age, it seemed to me like the NBA 2K series continued to decline year after year.

Multiple Japanese and Asia players are angry at Ubisoft for the blood and gore censorship of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Review). This kind of censorship in games with realistic graphics is a common occurrence in Japan. One popular example is Biohazard, the Resident Evil series. Indeed, for the

The video game industry has already gone through eight console generations since it began. Through all these generations, there have been games that haven’t lost their magic, no matter how many years or decades have passed since their launch.

Whether you enjoy the show or not, The Game Awards has essentially become the games industry’s equivalent of the Oscars, Grammys, or Emmys. Even though every other publication around the globe (including us here at DualShockers) ends up handing out annualized “Best Of” awards of their own, Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards is the showcase

Don’t let the title confuse you; Bright Memory isn’t the game we saw at Microsoft’s first showcase for Xbox Series X games. Sure, it’s the same franchise and developer, yes, the gameplay looks comparable, and the names are absolutely confusing, but there wasn’t a single moment of gameplay in Bright Memory‘s stunted hour-ish runtime that came remotely

As much as I love so many things about Star Wars–its universe, characters, and story–one of the most memorable elements of the series to me has always been its space battles and ships.

No matter who you wanted to be yesterday’s newest character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the one we got probably wasn’t what you were expecting. He’s been called a “meme pick” through the years, a character that everyone always joked about adding to Smash alongside Master Chief, Sora, Goku and the L-shaped block from Tetris. But now Minecraft‘s Steve, along with a

As the next-generation consoles near this fall, one of the biggest questions that has been on the hearts and minds of prospective console-owners has been the type of first-party experiences that we’ll expect to see on both platforms. Last week we looked at Microsoft’s first-party plans for Xbox, with the company aggressively pursuing new studios

It is no secret that the WWE 2K franchise is in a bit of a rut. I’ve played every WWE game since 2K took over, and for the most part, I’ve enjoyed my time. Obviously, they aren’t perfect, but I have always dug its character creation suite and presentation. That is, until WWE 2K20 —
