How to describe Ninja Pizza Girl. It isn’t like most other games available today and the best way to describe it is as a cross between Mirror’s Edge, Paperboy and Spider-Man. If that sounds strange, well it is. The game involves playing as a pizza delivery girl for her father’s shop. You must deliver the pizzas within a time limit while dealing with enemy pizza delivery agents from the megacorporation that is trying to muscle in on her father’s territory.

Gameplay is fast paced and needs to be done a short time or you fail the mission. You are delivering pizza after all, cant be too late or it loses its warmth and tastiness. You must dodge the enemies or attack at the right time in order to progress. A few mistakes can be made, but too many will make you need to restart because you will have lost far too much time. The music in the game is quite good and helps keep you focused on fast paced gameplay. It has the right touch to get you pumped up. The art is also well done and gives the game a unique feeling to it.

The gameplay is the high point of the game, but the story on the other hand? Its not all that good and has some rather cringe writing. It goes for a message about bullying and harassing but it just doesn’t come off right and feels awkward and stilted instead.

Honestly this is a hard one to talk about. The gameplay is quite decent but its story drags it down unintentionally. I would give it a play just for its gameplay though, but that is just me.

Watch Dog 2 Logo with Golden Gate Bridge in Background

No GravatarUbisoft has released the latest Watch Dog 2 trailer, revealing the a new mission for players who pre-order the game will receive an extra mission.

The mission titled Zodiac Killer, is based on a real life serial killer, that roamed and scared the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1960’s. The killer claimed to have taken as many as 37 lives, though police have only officially linked him to seven victims. After he commited the murders, he would send the media and police encrypted messages, taunting them by revealing information about the crimes that only the killer would know, or about future possible victims. Fifty years later, and the Zodiac Killer has yet to be identified.

In the pre-order mission, “an unwanted ghost of San Francisco’s past has resurfaced after fifty years. A killer is staging the bodies of his victims all over Oakland like the infamous Zodiac Killer of the Sixties, and he’s taunting the police and news outlets with coded messages. Will you succeed in decrypting the messages and hunting down the copycat?”


Players will take on the role of Marcus Holloway, a young hacker living in the San Francisco Bay Area who has teamed up with Dedsec, a notorious group of hackers.

They have exposed the dangers of ctOS 2.0, an advanced operating system networking city infrastructure that is in the hands of a corrupt corporations and being used to manipulate the lives of the citizens.

Between Marcus Holloway and the Dedsec, it is the player’s responsibility to take down the ctOS 2.0 and protect the lives of the people of the Bay Area.

Watch Dogs 2, developed by Ubisoft Montreal will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 15.

They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”

No GravatarSFV

It has been announced that both Capcom and SNK will be bringing their newest fighting games to the arcade scene. For now SFV and KOF XIV will only be coming to Japan, but hopefully some of the cabinets will make their way west.


Capcom will be bringing Street Fighter V to arcades in the near future in the form of the the PC version. Details will be clarified at a later time.

For Taito, the company announced NESiCAxLive 2, its follow-up arcade digital content platform. Companies such as Arc System Works, Examu, FK Digital and French Bread have pledged support for the system. SNK will also take part by announcing that The King of Fighters XIV will be coming to Japanese arcades through this platform.

While SF V will be based on the PC version, this does raise some questions. Does the game coming to arcades mean we will get a proper arcade mode is the first and foremost question on my mind. The lack of a proper arcade mode with character ladders and endings did hurt SFV, so this introducing an arcade more could help.

For KOF XIV, the game is already near perfect but this can be used to find ways to refine the game and make it even better. It can also be used to determine if DLC should be done and who should be DLC.

Most importantly though, this could help the sales of both games. SF V has done notoriously poorly in sales, and KOF has been lagging. Arcade versions could get more people interested and help get more sales for the games. Whatever your opinions are of these two fighters, the FGC needs more fighting games to sell if it is to continue, and this can help greatly.
