POKEMON GOTTA BEAT EM ALLLLLLLLLLL
This looks pretty awesome. I really trust Namco (Tekken creators) to make a really good fighting game in terms of balance and mechanics. Now from what it looks like this game will look closer to Street Fighter x Tekken as we can see in the move graphics but the way Machamp punches shows that some of that Tekken hand to hand action will be involved.
My Wishlist: Agron, Scizor, Gardevoir, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Medicham, Blaziken, Terrakion, and starmie
We can easily guess that only the more humanoid Pokemon will be the first pics for the roaster but what Pokemon do you think will be in the game?

Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited Review
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is a strategy RPG revolving around Valvatorez (former tyrant) and his friends, Fenric (loyal servant), Fuka - who thinks it’s all a dream, and Desco - the final boss. After Valvatorez finishes training a group of prinnies, they are taken away by Warden Axel. In his attempts to save the prinnies, Valvatorez finds out that the Netherworld is headed towards destruction due to them neglecting their duties of planting fear in the minds of humans. Upon this realization, he decides he is going to take over the Currupterment (the Netherworld government) in order to bring order to the Netherworld.
The story is handed to you in bits and pieces throughout the game. Presented in partially animated visual novels, Disgaea 4’s story is a mischievous comedy supplemented with relatable or common subjects – this time being a corrupt government. The story is filled with the usual one-two punch and backwards logic comedy styling of the series, but the basic story line is quite forgettable; the game design and the character development far outshine it. You will remember how cool the moves look and how interesting a character is but the actual journey will likely be a distant memory.
While the story is funny, it usually falls flat in the sense of pacing. There are always amazing moments at the end of Disgaea games but, due to the gameplay (grinding and possible strategic deaths), it takes players a while to reach these moments and there is very little substance in between. The comedy is quite funny, but it isn’t hefty enough nor does it pertain to the story enough for it to truly add to the game’s story.
The game mechanics and the gameplay feel much better than the previous game. With the addition of the cheat shop, Magichange lasting 6 turns, and promotions, it is easier for people who just want to finish the story to do so. Every special is still in the game and more have been added, along with a new spell class. Character specific moves are also making their return.
The Item world adds a lot of replay value due to the fact that every level is randomly generated along with side events to keep each stage interesting. Random ship invasions can occur throughout the game and friends are also able to invade. Mystery rooms offer treasure, healing, challenges, and more. The difficulty of the item world increases with each floor you complete - making each victory more rewarding than the last. When you leave the item world, the item you invaded gets stronger once you are done.
It is a strategy RPG so the actual gameplay is slow; however, with the addition of geo blocks, geo panels, and the direction your character is facing, every move counts. The boss situations are especially grueling as one move could easily cost you a unit or 2. There are a variety of approaches depending on what units you use, how you level up your units, and your use of Monster Fusion and Magichange.
There is a ton of DLC in this game along with the famous after completion scenarios to gain cameo characters and a few extra story lines like the Fuka and Desco show and Valvatorez’s origin story.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is a very fun game with an okay story line. The story is overshadowed by the proficiencies of the rest of the game. The gameplay is fun and rewarding. It is easier to reach all of the higher skills now so more casual players can finally feel the full extent of a Disgaea game without putting in a ton of hours. At the same time, the option to not use the cheat shop allows grind enthusiasts still provides the nostalgic feeling of past Disgaea games. Overall, it’s a fun game with fun gameplay and a lot of variety as well as a decent story. I give Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited a 4 out of 5.
The sheer variety replay ability and gameplay overshadow the okay story. Thank you for reading and please leave your opinions below.

LAZERS AND TSUNAMIS WHOOOOO
I am not the biggest fan of Call of Duty, but who ever made this trailer knew what they were doing. The drama and octane is palpable. Even I can’t wait to play this game’s multiplayer. I am really bad at Call of Duty due to lack of practice, but I think this will at least be a cool game to restart my fraggin’ adventures in.

Kojima + Guillermo Del Toro + Norman Reedus = Silent Hill
It’s true a new silent hill game is in the making. The only game in the world i was actually to afraid comes back to bight me in the butt with a new installment powered by the mind behind Metal gear solid, the director of Pans Labyrinth, and blade 2’s Norman Reedus (he is also in the walking dead).
What do you want to see in this installment of silent hill?
NEW CHALLENGER APPROACHES
It was recently announced that our god tier friend would make his way back to the smash brother stages. There seems to be a few changes to the way he plays. one specific change is his shuttle loop (the up special move) the glide is gone and the attack now hits twice if your spinning in a larger loop.
Honestly there is enough content of meta night to make him still cool but not to broken or weak in combat and if they cant find a good balance I say they use Dark Meta knight who seems to have a better suited move set for Smash bros. He summons a tornado instead of becoming one, his quick combos have a finishing strike, and he can summon giant blades from the ground. I think the giant blades would make a great final smash.
