Remasters are a surprisingly touchy subject for some people. Go into any comment section for any upcoming remaster, Tales of Symphonia, Baton Kaitos hell even the long awaited but amazing looking (yes I am bias as hell) Suikoden. You will quickly see comments about stop remastering and remaking games and make original things and IPs etc.
Don’t get me wrong this isn’t an exclusive thing, plenty of people love them. There is nothing wrong with any of this,I actually agree we need to make new IP’s. We also need to keep games we love or even in the case of Baton Kaitos and I don’t understand why people enjoy it.
We have seen over 5 million games created,many simply cannot be played anymore.There are assorted reasons for this, arcade machines created by now defunct companies that you can’t get parts for, just as an example. Another example is they were online only games and the servers are simply shut down.
Remasters not only give a new generation a chance to play these games but also keep them alive instead of being lost to time. Just as importantly they give companies the chance to earn money to make new products with and even gauge interest in reviving old IPs. What better way to test the waters and see if a series needs to come back than see if people are still interested in the older games? Bring them back and if they sell well it may be safe to move forward with a sequel.
I understand both sides of the argument,but for me there is room for both new games and Remasters. In fact, I’d argue it doesn’t make sense from both a financial and a historical sense to ignore old titles people are still interested in. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
That 90’s show recently released on Netflix and as a huge fan of That 70’s show (and probably one of the 6 people on earth that enjoyed That 80’s Show) I was quite excited to see it. Admittedly I did not have much hope for it. The main cast was basically making cameos, Leia, Erik and Donna’s daughter, was essentially crashing with Red and Kitty and the new group of friends did not seem promising. In fact I watched it just to see Red and Kitty.
In fact I will die on the hill that Red and Kitty Foreman are the best part of That 90’s show,and possibly That 70’s show. This 10 episode run though was far better than I expected. They didn’t try to recapture the magic in a bottle from the original series, in fact if you pay attention it is very clear the original Point Place crew did not remain friends. I won’t go into details, but Kelsos son and Leia meet for the first time as the summer starts.
As the summer starts however and Leia is visiting you can tell there are some issues between Leia and Erik, not too different from Red and Erik despite the fact Erik is actually trying. She meets Gwen, the girl that lives next door where Donna used to live. They hit it off and after a couple days Leia wants to spend the summer, something Kitty is excited for,much to Reds dismay.
I won’t go on from here because I don’t want to spoil anything but we do get to see a new side of Red with this group of kids. A softer side in a way. This isn’t to say he isn’t the hard ass we know and love,but there are moments where you can see Red’s job as father figure is done and he embraces his role as grandfather. The show isn’t perfect, but in a lot of ways it gave me exactly what I wanted. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
There isn’t a lot to say about this movie trailer besides, yes it is based on a true story. The story however is nowhere near as fun and exciting as the movie. The real story is simply a man named Andrew Thornton dropped a bunch of coke out of a plane, it was found by a bear, and said bear injected a bunch of it and died of an overdose. The bear’s body is actually on display in a museum in Lexington Kentucky. Enjoy the trailer, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Also as always if you want to help support Savior Gaming consider buying my book, it would be greatly appreciated.

It does however seem to make it appear as the true ending to Mass Effect 3 was the ending that destroyed a whole ton of stuff. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Another series announced this past weekend is Percy Jackson and the Olympians. This will hopefully go better than the movies did,and if anyone can make it work hopefully it is Disney. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
The EGRET II mini is designed to be the ultimate way of experiencing classic TAITO arcade games. After plugging it in, fans can immediately start playing the 40 pre-installed games with Bubble Bobble or Darius Gaiden, among other amazing classics. Additionally, the developers at TAITO are considering “to add more games in the future, if the opportunity arises, and [would] love to release more and more games […] as time goes on.”
Just like the original arcade machine, the mini arcade cabinet sports a 5-inch 4:3 rotating monitor. Thanks to that, players can rotate their screen to play games horizontally or vertically – for the most authentic way to enjoy arcade games. Fans looking to take things one step further can also use the EGRET II mini – Paddle and Trackball Game Expansion Set (also separately available), which adds ten additional, classic TAITO games on an SD card – bringing the total game number to 50! Turn the paddle and use the trackball of the unique controller included in this set to take control of this part of gaming history!
First and foremost, I don’t do a lot of book reviews but TkPublishing asked me to take a look at this one and as a gothic horror book, it seemed like something I would enjoy. Plus we all know how much a love an up and comer in anything. So huge shout out to both of them for hooking me up with this.
We start out like many books, with our main man Gerard Woodward being summoned to an old castle. Our new British friend wasted no time getting settled into his room and doing what the average person would do, second-guessing his life decisions.
The life decision at this point is not listening to his wife and coming to this castle that he is now clearly locked into. Things aren’t exactly normal back home in London where he left his wife, I will however leave that for you to figure out as it is quite interesting.
Obviously, as you guys know I don’t like to spoil too much about the story of these things and that will be more true here than normal so I will talk more about the style of writing here. If you remember those old classic horror books written in the time period style of old letters and journal writings. This is a lot like that, and it is extremely well done. You can read this and feel the picture Hault paints with his pen.
All that being said there is a sort of mystery to the whole thing, and that mystery is would it be better to classify this book as an homage to Dracula or more of a retelling. I don’t mean this as an insult, I feel like it is very well done in fact. The story doesn’t revolve around a simple vampire and it isn’t as simple as silly name changes in a quick cash grab. There was time and effort and love put into this novel and I truly think fans of the classic monster tails by the likes of Bram Stoker and Mary Shelly will find a lot to like here.
If you are interested in checking out The Devil’s Whispers, and I recommend you do, you can pick up a copy here.
Like most people, I had no idea who Peacemaker was until John Cena was chosen to play the part. Honestly when it comes to the comic version I still know almost nothing about him. Having looked him up he doesn’t have any super powers and is basically just a guy that is insanely skilled and talented. In fact one iteration has him as a diplomat that wants peace so much he starts just killing people.
That brings us to the show, where Peacemaker aka the guy with the best opening in comic book show and movie history possibly is pretty much a dark comedy. His best friend is an eagle, names Eagly because why would a guy like Peacemaker have a sense of humor. He is being used by Amanda Waller once again this time for Project Butterfly.
I won’t go to deep into the story so I don’t spoil it on you guys though I honestly love this show. I didn’t expect that I would but seeing John Cena dance around in his underwear after finally getting laid after being in jail for years only to almost get killed and steal important objects, which he decided we’re vinyl albums is amazing.
His watching his friendship with fellow characters Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) and especially Adebayo (Danielle Brooks) is especially satisfying as all the characters show real growth and change as the season goes on.
If you haven’t started watching this yet, now is the time to catch up. Best wishes and may the gaming gods being you glory.
