The last two gaming generations have been home to a number of high-definition remasters of aging games, but few games have made the direct leap from the PlayStation 2 to modern era. Rebellion and 2000AD are planning to do just that however with Rogue Trooper Redux, which remasters the third-person shooter with updated graphics for all current consoles, including the Nintendo Switch.

Good Thing: Capturing Beauty In ‘Horizon Zero Dawn’

Guerrilla Games
Guerrilla Games

One of the reasons I love video games so much is because they're able to transport me to a world very different from my own, and show me the magnificence of places I could never see. Some even allow me to do more than act as an ethereal observer, they allow me to keep mementos in the form of pictures of my travels. Horizon Zero Dawn isn't the first game to give players the option to "photograph" the player's journey, but it might be the most beautiful experience I've ever witnessed.

Marvel Video Games Will Be Excluded from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2
Marvel / Activision

Canon can be such a headache. I can remember being a Star Wars fan growing up and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of stories out there that were technically interconnected. Novels, comic books, video games, television specials, and card games; everything with an official Lucasfilm license was plugged into the same growing and evolving storyline, and no matter how hard I tried to stay on top of things, I could always count on one of my more dedicated friends to “Well, actually…” my understanding of the Star Wars universe.

Once upon a time I didn't know what a Nendoroid was. That was a time when my wallet was a lot safer from the cutest import collectibles on the market. Good Smile did not have much new at Toy Fair this year, but the company did have a handful of products I hadn't yet seen in person in finished form. Though it would have been better to see a lot more of the upcoming Figma and Nendoroid pieces coming in 2017, Good Smile's limited offerings didn't disappoint.

Magikarp Finally Gets Its Due (Along With Eevee, Mew, And Some Lightning Mouse) In The New Pokemon Gallery Figures

Pokémon Gallery Figures, via Pokémon Center

Real talk: Magikarp rules. Of all the Pokémon who made their debut 21 years ago, it's the one that I think we can all truly identify with, a literal fish out of water who flails around uselessly, but then one day, one day, through hard work and persistence, turns into a flying laser-breathing dragon that can devastate the land in its rage. Or maybe I've just revealed too much about myself.

Either way, Magikarp is finally joining the pantheon of Generation 1 superstars in the Pokémon Center's new line of Gallery Figures. The first four hit shelves with a set of incredible little figures of Eevee, Mew, and, of course, Pikachu.

Last year, McFarlane Toys reworked its strategy a bit. Instead of focusing on a few longrunning lines, the company switched to a primary series that encompassed all its licensed properties. Dubbed Color Tops, each wave mixes up comic, gaming, television and film characters into a larger collection. While the big guns like The Walking Dead still make up the primary focus, now things like Mass Effect, Attack on Titan, and even Spawn all fall under one banner. Add in building sets, and you have quite a bit of promising content coming from McFarlane in 2017.

Creativity abounds at Toy Fair every year, but you can always count on Square Enix to show up with some of the most clever and inspired action figures. Though they might not have the volume output of some of the larger companies at the show, Square Enix certainly brings the quality. This year was no exception with a couple of great new Marvel Variants planned, as well as even more Tetsuya Nomura DC Comics designs.
