: Review: Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

You got chocolate in my peanut butter! You got peanut butter in my chocolate!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are great. Personally, my favorite part is the edge, as long as you still get a little bit of peanut butter along with it. It is sort of annoying though when you peel off the wrapper and it takes a good chunk of chocolate with it, though. If you don't like peanut butter OR chocolate, I can't imagine that you'd want to indulge in a Reese's. If you don't dislike either one though, you easily understand why Reese's is some of the best candy ever.

So anyway, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney...

: AI construct 'Master Control' walks through a turn of Civilization: Beyond Earth in this PAX video

Steven got to play Civilization: Beyond Earth with the help of an "actual scienceman" not long ago, but the 2K and Firaxis still brought something new to show at PAX Prime this year. Earlier today at the Firaxis Megapanel, the artificial intelligence "Master Control" shows off a faction aligned with the "Purity Affinity."

The Purity Affinity believes that humans are good enough as they are, and so they seek to control the environment through terraforming in order to meet their needs. This contrasts with other factions, who believe that species must advance itself to adapt to alien environments, through either cybernetic enhancement or alien gene splicing.

Of course, "purity" does not imply "peace," as Master Control demonstrates through ruthless domination of a competing faction, as well as unprovoked murder of a majestic alien beast.

: Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

The Hyperdimension Neptunia series is a polarizing one. Some find Compile Heart’s thinly-veiled parodies of the game industry engaging and painfully adorable, and flock to it for an abundance of fanservice. Others run far, far away at the mere mention of the developer’s swath of content, especially given its less than lukewarm reception among critics and gaming publications.

Needless to say, it doesn’t need much help languishing in obscurity without having to resort to a spin-off that finds you grooming the all-female cast to be the best pop stars they can possibly be. That's why Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection is such a strange prospect. Compile Heart's attempt at a Project Diva-styled rhythm game is cutesy enough in its execution, but it ends up a little tone deaf.

: Mortal Kombat X is aiming to tone down the zoning game

I got to play Mortal Kombat X for a half hour during PAX Prime, and that made me happier than a pig in whatever pigs love to be in. After 5,000 matches played online between Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, my anticipation was palpable.

Yes, this is an article about my time with the game, but first, it needs to be stated that if you use Cassie Cage's X-Ray on a male character, you get to watch in X-ray vision as a nut punch explodes a man's testicles. Mortal Kombat, welcome back.

: Techies officially coming to Dota 2 next week

Techies, the explosive and suicidal Dota 2 Hero, is finally coming to the game next week, as detailed in the latest Dota 2 blog update. I've never played Techies in DOTA, but here's what I've gathered so far: Techies is literally the worst thing ever, worse than Meepo. Techies have an ability that causes them to explode and suicide, causing big damage in a small radius, so players who have no idea what they are doing will probably just kill themselves a lot.

In addition to a suicide, Techies can plant invisible mines that explode when a Hero walks on them, allowing Techies to make traps out of run spots, jungle paths, or basically anywhere. They're a Hero that forces the opposing team to tread lightly and really invest in some sort of true sight in order to detect the mines.

In addition to Techies, this update brings an All Random Deathmatch, trophies, the All Hero Challenge, and some more Compendium stretch goals from the recent International tournament. Unfortunately, there's no indication whether or not the 6.82 balance changes will also hit with this patch, but maybe they will be revealed next week! Feel free to check out all the planned additions here.
