User reviews are coming to Nintendo's website, as spotted by Polygon, adding a feature that lets fans talk up (or talk down) games on Nintendo systems. If you have played a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo... Switch game, and your MyNintendo ID confirms as much, you can go to the company's website and drop some thoughts about the game. The process for this is, at best, circuitous in that Nintendo way, so let's go at it step by step. To review a game, you browse Nintendo's game guide and search for the game you want to talk about. Upon finding let's say Splatoon 2, you scroll down to "Review This Game." Assuming you're logged in with your Nintendo ID, Nintendo's servers will check if you have played the game for at least two hours. If you have, great! You can submit a review using a 5-star system,...

I went in... knowing nothing, and left with some newfound appreciation for a game I had previously never heard of. Join me, Andrew Reiner, and Dan Tack as we go on this experience together. We also take a look at two other games, one of which has a highly recognizable name that I had, similarly, never played for some weird reason. (Please visit the site to view this media)

In an odd little note at the end of a Japanese PSBlog post, it has apparently been confirmed that both of the new Persona dancing spinoff games will support PSVR. No additional details were given and... presumably this would not just be for simply viewing the game, as there's already a built-in function in the PS4 for using the PSVR for that. Will this be if not the first then at least the most prominent virtual reality dancing game on the PlayStation VR? Or will it just be a weird mode for oggling character models? While no western release date has been announced, Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night are scheduled for release in March in Japan. [Source: PSBlog Japan] Our TakeWith the news that the game lacks a traditional story mode, it seems like they're putting...
Winter is still coming for Minnesota as a snow storm is poised to keep most of us homebound this weekend. Will we survive the siege of snow that’s heading our way? Will the storm last a fortnight,... or just as long as a battle royale in Fortnite? Let’s see how the Game Informer staff plans to stay warm this weekend. Let us know how you’re spending your weekend in the comments below! Ben Hanson (@yozetty) – Happy weekend, y’all! Hmmm, what to play … I think I’ll keep rolling with Metal Gear Survive.

Fear Effect Sedna, the third installment in the Fear Effect series, is releasing on pretty much everything on March 6. The game is developed by Sushee, a French indie developer. Fear Effect Sedna is... being created under a fairly unknown Square-Enix initiative, called Square-Enix Collective, where the company lends out licenses it is unlikely to ever use but picked up here and there to indie developers for new titles. So, if someone wanted to make a new Gex, it would be under the Square-Enix Collective banner. You can check out a trailer of the game below. Fear Effect Sedna is releasing on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch March 6. (Please visit the site to view this media)

Since 1974, players have been gathering around tables to live out adventures in the many worlds of the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game. Across multiple editions of the game, players and DMs craft... emergent stories and live out the lives of heroes and their adventures. D&D spawned an entire medium of other tabletop role-playing games, but the franchise has also spread into other arenas of tabletop play. This week, we’re taking a look at some of the great Dungeons & Dragons board, card, and miniatures games. Tapping into the campaign settings, concepts, and flavor of the brand, these games nonetheless aren’t role-playing games. Rather, they offer fascinating twists on the familiar fiction, sometimes emulating the feeling of a classic dungeon crawl but without the need for a DM, and...
