QCF: Grand Kingdom

IS is back with another take on the SRPG formula with Grand Kingdom, a PS Vita and PS4 game that seemingly exists as an amalgamation of every major RPG convention known to the human race. “Awesome!” you might say, but could it real be as great as it sounds; in short, he answer is, “kinda.”

Grand Kingdom has players take on the role of a commander of a band of mercenaries that are fighting in a newly kingdomless land where other bands of fighters fight for wealth and fame. Players manage troops via a central base where quests can be initiated, training conducted, equipment procured and distributed, and so forth—think Dragon Force meets Ogre Battle meets Disgaea. New units can be hired to form up to six troops of up to six fighters each to deploy on various quests.

Evo 2016: The MIX Indie Showcase

he MIX stands for the Media Indie Exchange which is a colaboration between the MIX and Evo to showcase games from indie game developers to the hardcore fighting game and competitive players. From the offical Media Indie Exchange website, the MIX states "The fighting game community (FGC) is a tight-knit culture who share a lot in common with Indies.

Both are interested in system design, have grassroots community backgrounds; both appreciate well-crafted game design, mechanics and both understand that games are only as fun as the people you can play with and talk to. The MIX and EVO are independent productions who strive to develop their cultures and bring people together to share amazing experiences". We were able to play and speak with the developers of several titles on the Evo floor, a few we enjoyed and some that seemed a little out of place but worth discussing either way.

Evo 2016: SNK King of Fighters XIV Panel

he second day of our Evo weekend continues at lunchtime as we sit down and find out about the history and the future of The King of Fighters and the rebuilding of it's developer SNK. As a big Neo Geo fan, I personally was very excited to meet and hear from the visionaries of some of the best fighting games including Fatal Fury, Samurai Showdown and The King of Fighters, which got it's start in 1994. The versions that would follow, including KoF 98 and 2001 being to many fans as the strongest entries in the series. Now the upcoming King of Fighters XIV will go back to the roots that made it a mainstay in the fighting game genre.
