What Console Should You Buy In 2015?

If you haven’t yet invested in one of the three major consoles by Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, the beginning of 2015 is a great time to take the plunge. All three platforms have a solid backlog of games- 2015 and beyond is promising for more great titles for each respective console. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Wii U all have their strengths, weaknesses, and cater to different audiences. This isn’t a post about “which console is better.” “Better” is relative– and what’s right for me might not be right for you. The Geekiverse is full of gamers with different tastes, and we want to tell you which console we recommend and why. For the record: this is going to be biased. Of course it’s going to be biased, we’re picking favorites here, people! With that little disclaimer out of the way, let’s get started.

Let’s Talk About: Overwatch

We’ve all heard of Blizzard, right?

That is… until now. Blizzard’s all new FPS Overwatch has been announced–– and it looks pretty cool to say the least.  Continue reading Let’s Talk About: Overwatch

Pokémon Meets Tekken: Pokkén Tournament Announcement Trailer

This is one of those “I didn’t know I needed it until I saw it,” situations. The Pokémon Company has teamed up with Bandi Namco to bring us an all new Pokémon fighting game: Pokkén Tournament. 

The game’s debut trailer seen above is pretty awesome. In my eyes, today’s fighting games are getting old. Granted, this isn’t a genre that I play much of, but I think a Pokémon title is a much needed refresh. Of course, being a huge Pokémon fan, I’m excited.

Pokkén Tournament is scheduled for a 2015 release in Japan. No other regional releases have been announced as of yet.

What do you guys think about Pokkén Tournament? It’s definitely different, but I think that different is something that this industry needs. Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself!
