How Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony Succeeded With New IP in 2015

It is no secret that popular entertainment is littered with an endless supply of remakes, reboots, reimaginings, and sequels.  Whether it be in movies, television, or videogames, companies often rely on the familiar when trying to attract an audience.  Investing millions of dollars into a product is a big risk, and despite outcry from some consumers about lack of originality, what often succeeds is something old and established.   Continue reading How Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony Succeeded With New IP in 2015

How February 2016 is Shaping Up to be a Valentine’s Day Gift for Gamers

Traditionally the fall of each year is the time when some of the biggest video games are released.  Already big titles like Super Mario Maker, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Halo 5: Guardians have been released.  Titles like Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be joining them in a matter of weeks.  It makes sense for companies to release them during the time period to capitalize on holiday spending and the increase of indoor activities from the colder weather in many parts of the country.

Yet, due to delayed games and a need to stand out amongst the crowded holiday lineup, the early months of 2016 are already loaded up with quality titles featuring a variety of genres.  February in particular is loaded with a slew of big releases and is why I think the month will be a great Valentine’s gift for gamers.  So here are some of the titles that will have gamers feeling especially loved.

It just so happens that Persona 4 and rhythm games are two of my favorite things ever, so this should be right up my alley, right? I thought so too. But after spending a lot of time on the portable dance floor, I’ve been left feeling more conflicted than I have been about any other game I’ve played in recent memory. It’s hard to express my true feelings about Persona 4: Dancing All Night, so a fellow writer here at MONG suggested I do it the way this game would want me to…

…through dance! Continue reading Persona 4: Dancing All Night Review
