At the beginning of the year, I took a look at what Japanese gamers are playing, since they obviously aren’t getting all of the Western releases that we are in North America. Ironically, Japanese publishers have started pushing multi-platform releases more and more onto PC via Steam. This trend of Japanese publishers releas...

Since February, 2017, the themes of my column here on MeltedJoystick have been perhaps a bit more doom-and-gloom than usual. I have had a very difficult time coming up with anything in games industry news and opinion that I can think positively about. Whether it’s gamers hating on each other to the point of Civil War, preda...

Last weekend during our regular Sunday brunch, my mother, who has gotten a lot of enjoyment out of my Xbox Live account and Microsoft’s casual games on Windows 10, asked me, “Do your tablet games show you a lot more ads lately?” Being the fan of “Microsoft Mahjong” and “Microsoft Solitaire Collection” that she is, Mom has been playing the daily challenges with the same dedication as a typical har...

Welcome back to another look into the near future! April has a lot of releases slated, especially compared to recent months of unwarranted drought. But don’t be FOOLED, as the upcoming titles for the idiots’ month aren’t looking to be particularly stellar. Maybe there will at least be something to care about…

Only one piece of shovelware this month… and it’s also a port! So let’s just move on ...

When it comes to the popularity of PC-like consoles over the last decade, nobody really seems to understand “why.” Sony spent quite some time pondering why the PS4 did so well at the beginning of the 8th Generation, but never came to any conclusions (at least that they announced publicly). Rather, the company is merely cont...

Ever since Valve, the parent company of near-monopoly PC gaming hub, Steam, introduced their Steam Greenlight process a few years ago for adding games to their online storefront, the service has been increasingly flooded with submissions. While Gabe Newell seems to be in love with the idea of removing barriers between Steam and people who wan...

Last year, when I roasted Chris for his birthday, I had to cull down the large list of Chris-like videogame characters to a mere 10 for the article. This year for Chris’ birthday, which was yesterday, and in honor of the big ‘Pokemon’ anniversary that took place recently, I have decided to create another list of videogame c...

Welcome back to another installment of the MeltedJoystick Review Round-Up. Here’s what our staff has reviewed since last time:

Nelson’s Reviews:
This quarter, I finally got the opportunity to play “Pillars of Eternity,” which I had been looking forward to since… 2000? Between that and a few short, Indie RPGs, I g...

Welcome back to another look into the near future! Unadilla Bill, Nebraska’s version of the fat woodchuck who predicts the weather, did not see his shadow, thus Wintery weather will be leaving us sooner rather than later. Just in time for a huge glut of March videogame releases! Don’t worry, though. Ther...
