We may be halfway through July, but that doesn't mean we don't have more news and reviews coming your way this week. Many of us may be waiting for that new Kingdom Hearts III info scheduled for Disney's D23 expo, but remember, patience is a virtue. This week we have news stories from Jesse Woo, Mike Salbato, Trent Argirov and reviews from John Tucker and Rob Rogan.


Story by Jesse Woo

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom was one of the best games shown at E3, and it was easy to see why. The game has a lot going for it, from amazing visuals, awesome looking combat, and now a cool kingdom building mechanic. Every time we get more info on the game, it only seems to get better and better. However, not all news is good news.

Story by Mike Salbato

Remember, patience is a virtue, and while we may have to wait an extra two months to get our hands on the game, but in the long run, it will only lead to a better game. Sometimes games that get delayed seem like they never see the light of day, but Ni No Kuni II seems to be shaping up into an amazing experience, and these two extra months will be worth it in the end.

Review by John Tucker

Back in the early 2000s, there were many long nights spent playing Diablo II with a Necromancer blowing up corpses, raising the dead, and just having a real blast. So it was kind of disappointing when Necromancer didn't make the cut in Diablo III, but thanks to the magic of DLC, the Necromancer is back in all his boney goodness. John Tucker got to sit down with this DLC for Diablo III, and he has all the details for you. If that's not enough, he will be streaming some Necro gameplay this Sunday on our Twitch channel so make sure to check it out.

Story by Trent Argirov

It is no secret that a lot of us on staff love Dragon Quest, and you better believe we have never been happy that we never got a chance to play Dragon Quest X. Yes, it's an MMORPG, but that doesn't make it any less of a Dragon Quest game. Maybe with this all in one PS4 package maybe somehow we will one day see this game in the west.

Reviews by Rob Rogan

Ooga-Chaka, Ooga-Ooga, Ooga-Chaka, Ooga-Ooga... OK, I'll stop, but seriously we have not one but two reviews for the new Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. Rob Rogan has all the details to make sure you get hooked on that Telltale feeling.
