Age of Empires: Definitive Edition launch details are here

History has had an undeserved reputation of being boring or dead. And yet it has become the source of inspiration of some the most addictive and most engaging games of all time, like Sid Meier’s Civilization and, of course, Age of Empires. Microsoft Studios attempted to launch a Definitive Edition of the original title last year to mark it’s 20th anniversary. Sadly, it also announced a delay right before it launched. The good news is that there’s no stopping conquerors and negotiators now, with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition launching next month.

Destiny 2 update plans detailed

Destiny 2 update plans detailed

Gone are the days when a game is considered complete and finished after launch. From DLCs to Seasons to Expansions, almost every game, be it PC, console, and especially mobile, receive some an update or two or more. Destiny 2 is, of course, no exception, but developer Bungie is doing something out of character this time. This time, it is actually letting players now what those updates may have even before the update rolls out. This not only helps them get feedback before it’s too late, it also helps drum up hype for the game better than leaks could.

Here’s how you can play HQ Trivia on Android now

HQ Trivia, which goes live for all Android users on 1st January, is set to revolutionize mobile gaming. Or destroy it. The odd mix of Jeopardy, mobile games, and money has made HQ Trivia the talk of the mobile town. Exclusive to iOS since October, the Android version can't come soon enough for some. You can, of course, force your way to get into the game. And, of course, you also run the risk of ruining your own experience, or your phone for that matter.

iPhone X can make your face invisible

iPhone X can make your face invisible

While security-focused persons and parties are still debating the merits of Apple's Face ID technology, those on the entertainment, especially the gaming, camp have long been sold on it. Just look at all the antics that animojis have already caused and threaten to cause as the technology becomes more available to more people in the future. But animating a pile of poo is just the tip of the, er, iceberg. As one Japanese developer proved, it can also be used to make your face disappear.

Destiny 2 update will undo the mess of the Curse of Osiris

Destiny 2 update will undo the mess of the Curse of Osiris

The DLC did seem to live up to its name of being a curse. The companies’ behind this year’s great games seem to be making great missteps. Fortunately for Bungie, its Destiny 2 DLC blunder isn’t as disastrous as Battlefront II. Still, there was enough of an uproar about the changes in the Curse of Osiris that Bungie really had little choice but to issue a mea culpa and, of course, promise an update that cleans up the mess they made.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection brings 12 titles together

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection brings 12 titles together

Some games have almost become synonymous with the genres they represent. First person shooters have Doom, JRPGs have Final Fantasy, and MMOs have WoW. When it comes to arcade fighting games, there is probably no name that rings louder than Street Fighter. The franchise is celebrating 30 years of existence, and what better way to memorialize that than by gathering not just the games but also the memories and skills into one, single Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. And that is exactly what fans can expect next year.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild expansion rolls out with Link on a bike

Zelda: Breath of the Wild expansion rolls out with Link on a bike

Japanese-made RPGs are often fluid in terms of their settings. Fantasy isn’t always fantasy and you’re likely to see some automatons mixed with wands and potions. So when Link starts a motorbike across mountains and rustic terrain, it all feels natural. In fact, it feels fantastic! That is practically the general reaction to the last few seconds of the trailer that introduced The Champions’ Ballad, the second and newest expansion to the breath-taking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Secret of Mana Remake will have limited PS4 discs

Secret of Mana Remake will have limited PS4 discs

Almost everything is digitally distributed these days, from software to films to games. The days of lining up your shelves with boxes of varied designs and irregular heights are mostly gone, but some still do hold a candle to this collector’s habit. For this type of gamers, Square Enix will be making available a physical copy of its upcoming Secret of Mana Remake for the PlayStation 4. But be warned, it plans on only making a limited number of them, so these discs may very well be collectors’ items.

My Tamagotchi Forever mobile game might be 20 years too late

My Tamagotchi Forever mobile game might be 20 years too late

When Tamagotchi first launched in 1997, the phones back then may not have been powerful enough to handle something like a phone version of the once beloved and addictive toy, though some might argue they already were. But owners Bandai, no Bandai Namco, had a lot of opportunities to jump onto the mobile train between then and now but never really did so. Well, it finally has, sort of. In 2018, Tamagotchi fans, or at least their children, will be able to enjoy again, or for the first time, the toy that took the world almost by storm. Unfortunately, it might have a lot more competition now than it did back then.

Super Mario Odyssey 100% run accomplished in 17 hours

Super Mario Odyssey 100% run accomplished in 17 hours

If you’re anything of a gamer, you may have at least heard of the Twitch and YouTube trend of speedruns. While definitely impressive, it isn’t the only noteworthy way to “run” a game. Just as awe-inspiring and, at the same time, bewildering are 100% runs that aim to collect and complete anything an and everything that the game has to offer in one single playthrough. Just like what gamer Okikurume accomplished by getting every single moon and collectible in Super Mario Odyssey in a little over 17 hours.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp puts a campsite on your phone

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp puts a campsite on your phone

Although not as revered as franchises like Super Mario (already there) and Zelda (coming next!), Nintendo’s Animal Crossing has easily endeared itself to gamers for its Sims-like open-ended time-sink and its favorable furries. It’s less intense, almost relaxing gameplay almost makes for a perfect fit for mobile gaming. As luck would have it, Nintendo thinks so as well. Pretty soon, in just a month’s time in fact, you will be able to play Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp on your phone. But make no mistake, managing a campsite is no work in the park.

Street Fighter 5 adds Zeku as a playable character

Street Fighter 5 adds Zeku as a playable character

Street Fighter might seem to simply be a fighting game for many outsiders, but fans know that the franchise has a rich lore that goes beyond the flashy combos and button mashing. The game has dozens of characters that, naturally, stay only in the background, if even shown at all. Some, however, graduate to becoming a part of the main roster. That is exactly the case with the newest addition to Street Fighter’s stable of playable characters, Zeku, who first appeared a non-playable sparring partner.
