The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Nintendo Wii U

Written by Yosafire on March 15, 2017 @ 12:23 am

For most Zelda fans out there, we are all used to the whole 'Go into a temple, beat it, move onto the next, get the master sword, and beat ganon." minus the on the side quest that most Zelda game has, does are usually how the game goes. It isn't until Nintendo decide to change things up for once and make a new Zelda game that was different from it's brothers, so how does the game hold up? Well I'm here to tell you that. Story: 9/10 Breath of the wild story feels like it was a mix of trying to be original but at the same time give a little mix of the other stories in the old Zelda games. The story I can say for myself was something that did caught my interest, it made me want to do more of the main quest rather than the side quest. I...

Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV Xbox One

Written by RevonMercer on March 14, 2017 @ 1:35 am

Like many entries in this series, Final Fantasy XV is a very divisive game among its fanbase. With the original project "Final Fantasy Versus XIII" being announced back in 2006, the ground work faced constant changes and a lack of true information about the project outside of visually impressive trailers. Fast forward several years into its cancellation, followed by the announcement of Final Fantasy XV in its place and you will see immediate changes. Gone were the grim dark tones. The emphasis on urban settings had been changed to that of a roadtrip tale of brotherhood. The enigmatic tale of the last prince of a mafia-like family shifted into that of a young price coming of age in an otherwise unforgiving world. ---------- GAME PLAY: 9 The game play in Final Fantasy XV is new in every sense of the word. No longer utilizing turn-based combat nor the Active Time Battle system that...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Nintendo 3DS

Written by GamerGirlNikki2017 on March 10, 2017 @ 3:53 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is a remake of the original Nintendo 64 game made for the Nintendo 3DS. While it was made for the regular 3DS, it is optimized for the New 3DS. Note that this review has been written by someone using a New 3DS (better performance, camera controls are better). The graphics have been obviously improved. The graphics are better than Ocarina of Time 3D, and are very beautiful for the 3DS. The controls are very solid, and it feels like there is weight to Link's movement. He doesn't slide around or anything. The time mechanic still works as strong as the original. You can still use the Inverted Song of Time, and the Song of Double Time. The Song of Double Time works different in the remake. You select a specific time you wish to travel to. You have three days to save the...

Alan Wake

Alan Wake Xbox 360

Written by Lamlac on March 09, 2017 @ 6:24 am

Alan Wake, a Psychological Action Thriller developed by Remedy Games in 2010 is one of my favourite games, the tension that this game creates is what first dragged me towards this game in the first and I thought it would be good to see objectively what is good and bad about this game. If Mario is regarded for its gameplay rather than its story, Alan Wake is certainly the other way around. All enemies cannot be damaged until the darkness that surrounds them has first been vanquished, you do this by shining the flashlight onto them for a period of time and then pop a few shots into them until they vanish, nothing to revolutionary, you played a third person shooter you’ve done this game’s combat, but it gets the job done and it does occasionally strips you of your weapons and it's during these moments where the...

Mass Effect

Mass Effect PC

Written by md5fungi on March 05, 2017 @ 4:17 pm

Mass Effect sets the stage for one of the most fleshed out sci-fi epics ever created in the video game world, in a brand new universe of intriguing history, varied and enigmatic alien races, and intergalactic threats. The entire story of Mass Effect revolves around YOU: you are Shepherd, a male or female ship commander who bears the first name of your choice and looks how you want her/him to. You determine some details of Shepherd's backstory, and then the decisions you make in the game define who your character becomes. The story revolves around an ancient synthetic-organic race called the Reapers that aim to destroy humanity by returning to the present day through a Mass Effect (hehe) Relay, with the help of a robotic race of machines called the Geth. Yeah, the basic premise of the story has been done before a hundred times over, but Mass Effect doesn't distract you...

Gunpoint

Gunpoint PC

Written by Wolffeman on February 28, 2017 @ 4:31 pm

If you enjoy games such as Deadbolt and Mark of the Ninja where basic stealth mechanics are blended with puzzle ones, you will almost certainly enjoy Gunpoint, an indie game that I picked up on sale last year for £1.50. If you are a fan of games with stealth mechanics that are fleshed out further like Dishonoured and the Deus Ex games, you be tempted to give Gunpoint a miss, but there are still plenty of mechanics despite this that make Gunpoint an overall brilliant game for fans of puzzle and stealth games alike. It's main mechanic, "crosslinking" means that your character is able to rewire objects by hacking them. This mechanic means that there are several ways to clear missions. For example, if there is a locked door in your way, you could simply rewire the light switch next to you to open the door, or you could be slightly...

Viewtiful Joe

Viewtiful Joe Nintendo Gamecube

Written by Awiui on February 24, 2017 @ 10:58 pm

Ahhh Viewtiful Joe, one of the coolest games in existance. I say coolest, because that is how you will feel while playing this, punching dumb robots, giant dinosaurs, evil sharks, big tanks, jets, ninjas, you name it. The whole premise of this game is being a cool movie superhero, all while rescuing your girl, beating bad guys, and saving the imaginary world you do not live in, except it affects the real...world(?). Anyways, what I'm getting at is that Viewtiful Joe is not a story driven game, it's a beat em up game with awesome mechanics and great difficulty designed to look super cool. Bosses are specially hard and require an understanding and good execution of all of Joe's abilities. Stages are full of little secrets that can make your life easier, but may require exploring or planning ahead to get. Visually, its nothing short of its name. The game makes...

Mother 3

Mother 3 Nintendo Gameboy Advance

Written by Awiui on February 24, 2017 @ 9:58 pm

Mother 3 is the last entry of the Mother/Earthbound Trilogy. For those not familiar, Mother 1 is Earthbound 0 or Beginnings, as Nintendo released virtually on 2015, with protagonist Ninten. Mother 2 is Earthbound, where the protagonist is the more famous Ness; and finally Mother 3 has Lucas as a protagonist. While I haven't played the first, I have played both Earthbound and Mother 3, and even though they are sequels, they are very indirect sequels. Personally, this is my favorite out of the 2, and from what I've heard about Mother 1, of the whole trilogy. It is also one of my favorite games of all time. There are very few things to not like about Mother 3. -It has a great cast of unique but relatable characters, that grow throughout the game and make you wish them the best (or the worst, if you talk villains). -Awesome music,...

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War Nintendo Super NES

Written by Awiui on February 22, 2017 @ 8:32 pm

As an avid FE fan, I can say it is a shame Genealogy of the Holy War hasn't gotten an English version. It is without a doubt in my mind the best FE I've played (and I've played all of them except for the 3ds ones). While only having 12 chapters including prologue and ending, most of them have 3 or 4 times the size and amount of enemies of a regular FE chapter. Some of this even take place in a whole in-game country. While this may seem a little too much, this allows for many other mechanics in the game to succeed at being fun, original and useful, like in-castle arenas, skills, story-telling, reinforcements, castle defending, item mechanics and, most importantly, the romances between characters. Main problems for me were the save system which made it so you could screw your whole file if you didn't save carefully and...

Assassin's Creed Unity

Assassin's Creed Unity PC

Written by HyperDebtRay on February 13, 2017 @ 11:27 pm

You play as a French assassin during the French Revolution through an Internet cloud-based animus simulation through a VR headset. Overall I though the game was acceptable despite all the bad press and ubisoft bashers railing against all the bugs and glitches found during the release. Since I didn't buy it at the release, when I look back in hindsight the game was in a deplorable state (just youtube unity glitches) and should have been delayed to fix the issues. Although now in 2017, patches have fixed around 90%-95% of the glitches so you shouldn't encounter any. I for one have found a few on the odd occaision but nothing too major. The story is much shorter than it's predecessors and is lacking in content when compared to much richer games like AC Black Flag. In terms of content, there is not much aside from Helix Data Harvesting, Chest Hunting, Assassination Contracts,...

Guitar Hero: World Tour

Guitar Hero: World Tour Playstation 3

Written by Mur96 on January 25, 2017 @ 11:03 pm

First of all: Its pretty obvious that the franchise got on the Rock Band all-in-one band experience wagon. Compared with Rock Band 2, we can see the problems over here. Now, standalone, is... not that impressive anyway. The best we can get about it is gameplay-wise. You have what you can expect: The guitar, the bass, and now the drums and vocals. In that aspect, I had a good time. Some additions like the sweeping sectors of some songs are fun an somewhat refreshing, the bass open-note is certainly interesting (but stupid), and I personally prefer the GH Drum design, with 5 colors. Game Modes, well, you can expect the same too, but with some new stuff and quirks. First of all its the character creation mode. Its a fine addition to the role if you want to make your own rockstars and the aspect of buying new stuff maintains a...

Mega Man 7

Mega Man 7 Nintendo Super NES

Written by The-Masquerade on December 22, 2016 @ 8:49 pm

It was a good time! This review will heavily compare to the X trilogy seeing as they were both snes titles. Also because this game is underrated and is actually a gem of sorts. Would be my favorite in the classic series, but the final sections... especially the final boss is ridiculously difficult and beating it is based on how many energy tanks you bring to wily capsule 7. I defeated him with 2 E-tanks, but it was a miserable, save statey time. For stupid design like that, I don't feel bad using an emulator to beat the game, at least the last part of it. Aside from the rest of the game is fantastic, being filled with fun and fair challenge with a bunch of upgrades and shit to find just like megaman x. Bosses are engaging, ex: freeze, cloud, turbo, shade man. Just please don't use their weakness...

It was not my plan spending all that time into a videogame. Specially since I've put myself the goal to play the games on the list I have created in this webpage. But man, this game, just makes you want to be the only game that exist so you don't feel bad for only been playing this game for like 3 months. I want to make this review SHORT to make a longer and deeper one in the future, and sorry if I make any mistake with my typing, English is not my first language. Btw there are NO SPOILERS in this review. I've never played a The Witcher game, since I was not a PC Gamer back then, but dear thank god I discovered this series that caught me into this Tolkien based western RPG. After 200+ hours of gameplay, the only thing I would like to do is...

My first ever review! So i hope it´s at least decent. First thing first BIG SPOILER WARNING. Ok now that THAT is out of the way. I love this game to bits, so its gonna be a little biased. Gameplay: No change here. You have you´re classic visaul nove style. Question witnesses, go around and search for clues. Highlight again are the Trials and boy are they good this time. Story: SPOILER Here is the series at a truly high point. The game starts out at Mia´s second case as an attorney. And her client? None other than Phoenix Wright, who is accused of killing Doug Swallow. And here were introduced to one of the most notorious villains in the series Dahlia Hawthorne. A cunning and maliputive girl that only thinks for herself. She betrayed her whole familie for a jewel. Tried to pin the crime of killing her sister to her boyfriend. Even worse is that she drove said man to suicide...

Written by RandomReporter on November 05, 2016 @ 11:22 pm

This was a very enjoyable childhood game. I was one of the children who played this instead of Mario Kart 64 and, generally speaking, whichever one gamers had played first, they stood by. I strongly enjoyed this game's unique power-ups and differences that made it unique from Mario Kart 64. Rare did a very good job of making the graphics as good as possible for the hardware given. I have personally replayed this game at an older age and it still offers plenty of fun!. 1.Story: 7.5/10 -Good enough for the fact that its a bunch of animals racing 2.Character Uniqueness and Development: 7/10 -Great Characters! Little to no character development. 3.Graphics (When Released): 9.5/10 4.Replay Value: 9/10 5.Soundtrack: 9/10 -Most chipper tunes you'll hear in a long time! 6.Game play Depth: 8.5/10 -If you have more experience you will probably win. not much is left to chance on DKR. 7.Is It Fun?:...

Bloodborne

Bloodborne Playstation 4

Written by enderx30 on October 03, 2016 @ 6:34 pm

Bloodborne bore the weight of being heralded as the “true successor” to the Souls series, and for good reason: Dark Souls 2 was developed by the “B-Team,” whose efforts were commendable but ultimately did not achieve the heights of their predecessors. I feared that Bandai Namco would milk FROM SOFTWARE to churn out yearly rehashes not unlike the CoD franchise. FROM SOFTWARE plunged its hand into my bosom, viscerally ripped that fear out of my torso, and planted a new one in its place. And this new fear is absolutely delicious, a kind of horror not seen in even horror-centric games. With Bloodborne, FROM not only demonstrated its superior mastery at the trade, but also brought about a new pinnacle in its genre. Bloodborne gave the Souls formula a much-needed refresh. Making dodging a necessity—though the Souls games also encouraged it—quickened the combat to a hectic yet tightly controlled pace. This is...

Need for Speed: Undercover

Need for Speed: Undercover Xbox 360

Written by Gauntlet on September 06, 2016 @ 12:12 am

Oh man, where do we even begin? Power creep is WAY too blatant in the game. You'll find out when you accidentally stumble into an event you're not meant to enter until later in the game when you have higher tier cars unlocked. The engine is completely reused from ProStreet, complete with the frame rate mysteriously increasing while in tunnels and improperly working taillights. With that being said, gameplay is really boring and doesn't bring anything new to the series. If anything it dumbed gameplay down. Cars can't be upgraded into higher tiers like ProStreet, which makes the aforementioned power creep even worse. Customization is identical to ProStreet, which is subjective. Autosculpt returns as well. One of the flaws, however, is that body kits are very limited and border on rice, which is really glaring on cars with only one option such as the Koenigsegg CCX. Also the story is generic. Undercover cop enters...

Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls Playstation 3

Written by LlamaLord on August 30, 2016 @ 3:08 am

Even though this title won RPG of the ear in 2009, I am shocked at how little of a commercial success it actually had. While not a failure, its sales number definitely did not reflect how progressive this title was at the time. Integrated multiplayer, challenging combat, and incredible replayability were all rare traits for console games in the early PS3 era. Its successor, Dark Souls, went on to achieve legendary status and it is unlikely that there will ever be a true sequel. However, that does not hinder the experience of trying out this game, even after seven years. Gameplay: The first few hours will be tough for most new players. I found myself playing the first area for nearly three hours before getting through the first boss. The learning curve is unforgiving to those who have never played a Souls game before, but it is very rewarding. It is...

F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. PC

Written by Keanu_Edwards on July 14, 2016 @ 5:37 am

I did not originally play F.E.A.R when it was released, but recently acquired it as part of a deal on Steam, and was pleasantly surprised. The story centers around the 'point man' who is part of 'First Encounter Assault Recon', a fictional government department which responds to paranormal incidents. There has been a disaster at a military defense contractor called Armacham Technologies, in which a 'psychic commander' known as Paxton Fettel has taken psychic control of a battalion of replica soldiers (clones) in order to pursue unknown, but violent motives in a district of the city. The game is a first-person shooter, and much like Half Life, your protagonist is the silent type. Guided through a series of linear levels by your superior Rodney Betters, who communicates with you via radio, your mission is to eliminate Fettel, though for the most part you will be plowing through his army of...

Need for Speed

Need for Speed Playstation 4

Written by Gauntlet on July 04, 2016 @ 12:36 am

Ah, the latest installment in the NFS franchise! And it's allegedly designed with realistic car culture in mind! Let's see how well EA Black Box fared, shall we? Well for starters, there's the infamous "always online" controversy. EA claims this gives you a more "immersive" game experience but really it just hinders you. If the servers are laggy or offline, it will affect your gameplay and the game even admits it. Yes, even if you're playing solo which is an option. Gameplay itself is hit or miss. There's pretty much no reason to build a car for grip, since Ventura Bay is designed primarily for drifting and even if you max out every stat on an otherwise grip-oriented car (i.e, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX or Nissan Skyline R34), you will still slide around corners when you don't mean to. If anything grip only helps to minimize accidental fishtailing when you're trying to...

Max Payne 3 PC

Written by Snivyius on July 03, 2016 @ 2:31 pm

While i can understand why those who were massive fans of the original Max Payne games by Remedy with the very different settings, direction, music and a lot of other elements that made those games fantastic in their own way (and are still great games anyway that have aged superbly for the time in their own right) and while i can see people not enjoying MP3 as a Max Payne game, i will make this clear: This is still a fantastic game and honestly in terms of quality i think honestly surpasses the originals. While next to everything in this game was different from the originals such as again the visuals, the music and so-on i found next to all of the new things and the old tricks still in to be absolutely incredibly well done to make one of the most well crafted and satisfying third person shooters ever. The settings...

first of let's talk about the story. The player takes the role of a marine (unnamed to further represent the person playing), "one of Earth's toughest, hardened in combat and trained for action", who has been incarcerated on Mars after assaulting a senior officer when ordered to fire upon civilians. There, he works alongside the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC), a multi-planetary conglomerate and military contractor performing secret experiments on interdimensional travel. Recently, the teleportation has shown signs of anomalies and instability, but the research continues nonetheless. Suddenly, something goes wrong and creatures from hell swarm out of the teleportation gates on Deimos and Phobos. A defensive response from base security fails to halt the invasion, and the bases are quickly overrun by monsters; all personnel are killed or turned into zombies A military detachment from Mars travels to Phobos to investigate the incident. The player is tasked with securing the perimeter, as...

League of Legends

League of Legends PC

Written by iliotsouli on June 19, 2016 @ 11:30 am

Generally speaking, League of Legends was (and still is) one of the greatest MOBA games ever. It's daily peak used to tend from 15 to 25 million players every day during the 2nd game season (2012) and with a lot of marketing and advertising, it dethroned the king of Multiplayer games, World of Warcraft. However, during the 4th season, League of Legends started losing casual players due to its extremely annoying and immature community which was "surrounded" by people who never wanted develop themselves into something better. On the contrary, there were always the type of people who used to play for fun. League of Legends though, still reaches the top 5 Multiplayer and top 3 MOBA games of all time because of two reasons. First of all, everything has to do with game play. Mechanics and outplays are the most common things a casual player can detect and as a matter...

Silent Hill 4: The Room PC

Written by RaidenPWNR on June 18, 2016 @ 10:34 am

Take a journey into Madness in Silent Hill 4 - The Room. The definite best Silent Hill game in the series so far but some might argue and bring SH2 up in the discussion. True, SH2 was a great game as well but I simply feel that the time it took for Team Silent to master the genre is most alive in SH4 - The Room. You wake up in your apartment only to notice that the door is chained shut from the inside. From this point on, this eerie feeling that something is wrong, that you're in this weird twilight zone takes a hold of the player. You can briefly interact with the said room to learn a few things but you soon start noticing a hole somewhere in the house. A hole that gets wider as days pass. Will it ever be wide enough for you to escape ?...

Dark Souls III

Dark Souls III PC

Written by sullynathan on June 12, 2016 @ 11:15 pm

Dark Souls 3 draws inspiration from all of its predecessors by borrowing heavily from Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne and Demons Souls. I have played the first three of those game (never got farther than Father Gascogne), but I never played Demons Souls. The game has a lot of features from all those games but I can't say that I agree with all the features, areas and things borrowed from all those games. The game doesn't run very well on my Mac. I am currently running it at 720p on the absolute lowest with a lot of framerate drops. The graphics are quite good though, I would say I was genuinely impressed with how beautiful the world was and a lot of the details in it. Fire and a lot of effects look very good in the game. The boss and menu music in this game is phenomenal. I swear,...
