Back in the Spring of the Plague Year 2020, I warned of major players in the corporate Games Industry attempting to smuggle Digital Rights Management schemes – a.k.a., DRM – into our modern games under the guise of ‘protecting’ law-abiding players from evil, filthy hackers and cheaters. Unfortunately, there was no l...

Recently, in their “The Duviri Paradox” update, Canadian-based, Chinese-(partly)-owned developer, Digital Extremes, revitalized the weapon ecosystem in their decade-running Live Service shooter, “Warframe” with the addition of Incarnon Genesis Adapters, which can be earned for a specific subset of ‘old, unused’ weapons in a rotating selection that changes each week. Digital Extremes h...

Recently, I’ve shared some of the best weapon choices for players looking to break into “Warframe’s” endgame content. Of course, the titular warframes are just as important, and serve as they keystone in a player’s loadout. Each ‘frame comes with 4 unique active abilities plus a passive, with a huge variety avai...

Welcome back to another look into the near future! As July rolls is, there’s still a lot of games being released. Has the start of the Summer Games Drought been pushed back yet again? Let’s dive into the dumpster and see what we can find!

There’s not much shovelware to speak of for July. I kinda stretched it a bit to get to three. There is, of course, a Licensed game by *dry-heave* Disne...

The theatrics and drama revolving around Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision-Blizzard-King just got a little bit Truthy. In response to Sony’s insistence that losing the third-party support of the conglomerate publisher Microsoft wishes to buy, ...

Last year, I gave a short list of my top picks for the best-in-class weapons in each major category in Digital Extremes’ long-running Live Service MMO-Shooter, “Warframe.” Of course, because it’s a Live Service, the game is always getting a stream of patches, balance tweaks, and new content. That means the goalposts...

In an unsurprising, yet still disappointing bit of news, Blizzard recently announced that the studio will be ceasing development on the cooperative campaign-based ‘Hero Mode’ of their Arena Shooter sequel, “Overwatch 2.” Instead, “Overwatch 2” will remain an entirely PvP-based game, just l...

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

Nelson’s Reviews:
Oof! Spring was not kind to me. In spite of playing a mix of big names and smaller Indie/doujin titles, the only one I thoroughly enjoyed was the ‘Mario + R...

Welcome back to another look into the near future! Summer is on its way, and after decades of precedent, gamers everywhere are preparing to dig-in for the annual Summer Games Drought, wherein, despite the largest portion of gaming’s marketing demographic being off of school for 3 months with nothing better to do than spend time and money on new gaming purchases to keep them out of trouble, the ...

While nowadays I consider myself to be among Steam’s biggest fans, a little over a decade ago, I had heard of the service but never tried it. In fact, my first experience with “modern”-style PC gaming (i.e., PC gaming that actually works) was with GOG, back when they were officially known as Good Old Games.
