We’ve known for a while now that Sony hasn’t given up on virtual reality within the PlayStation ecosystem. Recently, we got a look at some of the new features coming in their revised PSVR2 headset, most of which aren’t particularly compelling outside of niche edge-cases. Indee...

The Summer Games Drought has broken after but a single month! Of course, now, much like those poor folk in Kentucky right now, we are forced to deal with an unrelenting and continuous flood of crap. Not only is this flood annoying to deal with as gamers, it’s actually damaging to the hobby and medium as a whole. The Games Industry is repeating the mistakes of the Atari (delenda est) Era,...

The MeltedJoystick Crew have been playing tabletop RPGs together on a very regular basis for decades, not including the unfortunate break we had to take when that annoying and useless activity known as “going to college” got in the way. Since August 2019, though, we’ve taken a break from our usual Dungeons & Dragons activities and went back to the simpler times of Milton Bradley’s HeroQue...

With Microsoft set to devour Activision within the year, the Triumvirate of Evil videogame corporations is down to two: The French bastards at Ubisoft, who, admittedly, have been making much better games in the last decade than all of their prior efforts combined; and Electronic Arts, the ‘Worst Company in America’ two years running.

This past week, both companies have had to address the l...

Digital Extremes’ “Warframe” is a very busy Live Service game with a LOT of moving parts under the hood. Having been in Perpetual Beta since 2013, some of the basic mechanical systems have been revised multiple times, while – unlike Bungie – Digital Extremes has never actually removed any content from the game. Thus there’s a lot to take in, which can be overwhelming to new players an...

Last year, Square-Enix surprised us with the announcement that they would be re-launching the ‘Dragon Quest’ massively-multiplayer online RPG in an offline, single-player format, dubbed “Dragon Quest 10 Offline.” Normally, MMOs tend to linger around longer than their profitability dictates, before fading away after ...

July is nearly upon us, and the Summer Games Drought has finally arrived in full force. There are less than 10 titles coming in the middle of Summer, so it shouldn’t take too much time to determine whether any of them are worth getting excited about.

Sadly, out of our tiny July release slate, 3 of them must be shoveled directly into the trash. There’s a ‘

As mentioned a couple weeks ago, E3 has been cancelled for 2022, without even an all-digital event like E3 2021 to fill the empty space in June’s Gaming Media coverage. Nature abhors a vacuum, though, and something else has arisen to fill the E3-shaped hole in our gaming lives: Enter Summer Games Fest, produced by The Gam...

There has been a lot of buying and selling and merging of videogame studios as of late, what with both Microsoft and Sony spending Billions (with a “B”) of dollars on studios and publishers, Square-Enix

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

Nelson’s Reviews:
I had a pretty good gaming quarter, which looks magnificent compared to my last quarter. Chris and I finished the second ‘Boot Hill’ game, and thoroughly ...
