Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus PC

Written by Powerball345 on November 03, 2017 @ 1:40 pm

Wolfenstein 2 The New Colossus 8/10: Fantastic Fun from start to finish with a few hiccups here and there. Pro's: -Excellent shooting, the handling of the weapons is absolutely incredible in this game, from the meaty crunches of the weapons when they fire to the absolutely satisfying effect of seeing whomever you shoot turn to bits it's definitely a nice step up from the last one and now with small upgrade slots for each weapon aswell as dual wielding, makes the time you'll mainly be spending in the game just a blast. -The stories is able to take its absurdity seriously without really feeling out of place. If you've played The New Order then this will seem familiar and yet slightly different. Where I felt previously The New Order ended up abit dull in parts I feel (overall) the way this story is told and how much time you get to spend with...

He and his friends are sent off to find a very unique feather needed for the restoration of the soarwing. Gameplay: The game has fine graphics and battle animations. The animation during the battle when using summon were pretty impressive too.... and so does those cutscenes. You can...

There's no need to travel on foot to move from town to town, an open world map provides faster travel by selecting the town you wished to go to, though there are places where you can set on foot to travel in open world. Monsters can be encountered...

Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII Playstation 1

Written by crisisdeive on October 19, 2017 @ 2:56 am

STORY First set on Midgard, a city powered by Mako Energy and owned by ShinRa E. Company. Well, the Mako Energy were really was the big deal here because it uses Lifestream as it source, and Lifestream gives life to the planet, overuse of such energy will eventually kill the planet. Avalanche, a rebellious group of people were against towards such abuse and were trying to stop ShinRa's operation. What makes the game's story so great was, it doesn't focus on a single routine. Cloud, a member of Avalanche, after meeting a certain person learned and remembered what bigger threat lies beneath other than the company they were currently dealing with. The operation of Dr. Hojo called the Jenova Project from some years ago were coming into fruition, with a intentional negative result. An ex- SOLDIER named Sephiroth arose once again to claim the life of the planet which he assumes belong...

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Nintendo DS

Written by crisisdeive on October 19, 2017 @ 2:17 am

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Genre: Action/Adventure/Fantasy Console: Nintendo D.S Gameplay: In this game, you'll play as Sora's Nobody named Roxas. Controls aren't that complicated but still, you should be skilled with button-mashing coz if you're not, you'll end the game with your DS' buttons permanently pressed down, especially the A/B/-R Buttons, so one must be careful. The graphics are 9/10 for the console you're playing this at, great surroundings blended with soul lifting BGM' s. First impression about the inventory... -^- ..Your inventory is Panel System which makes it a little complicated at First, coz through the game, after finishing some missions, you'll be awarded with expansions, so do your missions regularly. And by Panel System, this game unexplainably slotted everything in your inventory... as in Everything!!! Like hell. Even your character's level! Upon filling up your EXP Gauge, you'll receive a "Level Up" item. Your character will not level up unless you equip or put your...

Written by crisisdeive on October 19, 2017 @ 2:10 am

Game Review of Conception II - Children of the Seven Stars Genre: RPG Format: Playstation Vita ATLUS STORY - The world of Aterra was ravanged by monsters for 2 decades, youths blessed with Star Brand called Deciples were the only one who can fight against those monsters. These Deciples went to Academy to hone their fighting skills and deployed on dungeons called Dusk Labyrinths to destroy the Dusk Circles which was responsible for summoning limitless amount of Dusk monsters. One male student (protagonist) found out his uniqueness, being the God's Gift, he has unlimited amount of Ether... large enough to create Star Children by pairing up with Rank A female Deciples. GAMEPLAY -- The game offers quite a small world which your actions mostly were executed only through selection screen, the only time you can see your characters move around is when you're exploring the labyrinths. But first let talk about the stuffs you can do outside...

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Kirby's Return to Dream Land Nintendo Wii

Written by TheNerd on October 15, 2017 @ 1:10 pm

TL;DR at the end for lazy ones. Kirby Adventure Wii (Know as Kirby return to DreamLand in North America) is the 14th game in the Kirby series and the only Kirby game I have completed (*Shocking, I know*). **Disclaimer:** This is my first review *EVER* in any site, so beware of unproffesionality, plus, I'm not a native English speaker so, skim over my horrible spelling. With that out the way, Let's start! I'd like to say that Kirby's highlight in this title is the soundtrack. It has such a positive feel and it is an undeniably one of the best aspect of the game, it can range from inspiring, cheerful, and even **EPIC**. But there are other aspect of this game that shine as well, mainly the presentation, that I have to admit on a technical level, doesn't impress much, but on an aesthetic one, **boi**. It spurs a lot of expressiveness...

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided PC

Written by HyperDebtRay on October 04, 2017 @ 11:09 pm

Introduction ------------------- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the highly anticipated (at the time) sequel to the acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game chronologically takes place 2 years after the Panchea incident occured and Jensen was fished out of the sea to recover from his ordeals. - Jensen back in action, with a level up in shinyness and badassery Detroit vs Prague --------------------------- Without spoiling too much, the flow of the game is very similar to the previous game Human Revolution where you are placed in a "hub" city and are flown out to story line missions. The difference this time is that the Hub town is Prague, Czech Republic. Here you can expect all the side missions to be found here, and believe me this place is huge, about 3 times larger than Detroit with convenient subway travel around several corners of the city. The only gripe I have about this new city is that...

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel! PC

Written by HyperDebtRay on September 17, 2017 @ 11:32 am

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place chronologically before the events of Borderlands 2 before Handsome Jack became the CEO of Hyperion. The story is being told from the accounts of Athena after she has been captured by the original vault hunters during the events of "Tales From The Borderlands" episodes. The premise of the story is about Jack's rise to power after Hyperion has been invaded by the Lost Legion of the Dahl corporation. Without spoiling too much, the Vault on the moon is connected to all the events within the game and you the Vault Hunter have been hired to help Jack retake Hyperion and open the vault for some sweet loot. Is it better than Borderlands 2? In my opinion it is not better than Borderlands 2 from a personal standpoint. That being said the game taken as a whole is just as entertaining and fun as its predecessor. New Mechanics: - Low...

Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny

Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny Nintendo Wii

Written by Shakaywin on August 24, 2017 @ 4:15 pm

Game Play: Great! I have played all the Rune Factory games and this is one of my favorites! Farming is done differently than most Harvest Moon and Rune Factory games and that was badly received by some, but I think a little change is good once in awhile! In this game, the dungeons are hidden underwater and you use a giant golem to raise them, which I thought was a unique aspect. You can craft early in this game which is a plus and the requests are slightly more difficult than previous Rune Factory games. Fighting is simple but fun. One thing I don't like is how you can't marry until the game is over and there is nothing to do. Story: You are a boy with a girl trapped in your body and you don't know why. Yes, very awkward. Anyway, out of the three Rune Factory games I have...

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon

Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon Nintendo DS

Written by Shakaywin on August 24, 2017 @ 3:30 pm

Game play: Very fun, but a few things should have been different. The controls are easy and combat is as well. However, I feel this game may be too easy at times and the character levels up way too fast. You also cannot craft items until near the end of the game, where it is almost pointless to do so. Story: There isn't much of one to be honest. The ending is also very vague which kills what was built up until then. There are also a couple sub plots with the minor characters. The ones that were there were good but I would have liked to see more for both something to do and to develop the characters more deeply. Graphics and Visuals: Graphics improved from the Harvest Moon games, and the close ups of the characters are very good and the art is beautiful and well-drawn. Very pleasing to the...

E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy

E.Y.E.: Divine Cybermancy PC

Written by Ocelot on August 24, 2017 @ 3:45 am

E.Y.E is one of the weirdest cyberpunk games I've played. It's a very bold, mediocre FPS/RPG with a clearly lacking budget, yet a fun and memorable one. It's one of these games that you'll either love it or hate it. GAMEPLAY: Just like everything else about the game, it's gameplay is unapologetically unique. The player gets to choose between a few starting traits that allow for many different playstyles. A character can potentially me a melee warrior, a sneaky sniper, a commando, a hacker, a psyker or anything in-between. Depending on your current choices, the game will automatically give you a class name with "Equilibrium Fist" being the starting class as well as the class for the jack-of-all-trades. In practice, the game is a shooter at heart but gives enough room for other kinds of strategies. A hacking minigame that allows you to disable, destroy, or take control of doors, sentries or...

Dead Space

Dead Space PC

Written by grenadeh on August 08, 2017 @ 6:27 am

When the game came out it was a breath of fresh air for survival horror fans. It more or less took the good parts of older games like Silent Hill, Resident Evil, and Fatal Frame, and mashed them together into one brilliant, cohesive monster that served as a spiritual successor to System Shock, but played like an action horror shooter. M_DeadSpace Dead Space admittedly has one of the single best settings for a horror game. In space, no one can hear you scream. Right? Wasn't that the tagline of Alien? The game felt like it was heavily inspired by Event Horizon, among other sci-fi films. Granted, of course, Event Horizon was less a story of science fiction and more just straight "horror". Sam Neill, the man who created the warp drive (whatever it's called), eventually loses his grip on sanity and succumbs to the demonic possession of the ship, killing everyone along...

Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy VIII Playstation 1

Written by RinoaSalamander on July 18, 2017 @ 4:54 am

This is gonna be tough for me, due to my bias... A bit of backstory; My father was a bit of a video game nerd in his youth, so he decided he'd name me after the main female lead of this game, Rinoa. Of course I have bias, I was named after one of the characters in this thing! So, I'm going to try and be as honest as humanly possible. The gameplay; It's playable, but it's not much more than that... Let's talk about the battle system; Final Fantasy 8 has a fairly unique draw system, where instead of leveling up and getting magic with your levels, you instead draw spells from draw points, enemies, and you can also craft them with items. This was good in theory, but the system of this game is very, very broken... You can spend HOURS just trying to get 100 Curaga spells from 1 enemy, all the while knowing...

Devil May Cry 4

Devil May Cry 4 PC

Written by sullynathan on July 09, 2017 @ 5:25 pm

7 missions into DMC 4 and the most boring parts are walking around because of how slow it is. The game also hasn't done a good enough job yet of mixing enemy types, far too many encounters with regular demons. Going from Nero to Dante is really jarring, I don't know another game in recent memory in which you're forced to change main characters mid way through and re-learn new mechanics, move-sets, weapons and more. Personally I don't mind too much because I've been playing these games a lot and I really like Dante but for a newcomer this would be really annoying. Being able to change styles at will with the combination of the already great combat is really flashy and fun, plus Pandora is a great gun in this game. One downside though is that camera is somehow worse than DMC 3. I had few issues with DMC...

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Nintendo DS

Written by HyperDebtRay on June 29, 2017 @ 10:53 pm

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is a portable game on the DS that takes place around a generation or so after Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass. You've probably already heard this story before as a great evil has been sealed from the land by the Tower of Spirits and its Spirit Tracks. If you haven't already guessed the main mode of transportation is by Train. The game attempts to use unique features that the DS offers but the gimmicks that tie in with the gameplay mechanics will sometimes frustrate the user. Good: I thought the puzzles in dungeons were very creative and very challenging, this is what I have come to expect from a Zelda game. The satisfaction that you get when solving these puzzles is a euphoric experience. Audio and sound were quite good, everything from the sounds of enemies and the train were on accurate and on point. Boss design and...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II PC

Written by HyperDebtRay on June 10, 2017 @ 11:28 pm

Similar to the previous game in the series Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Ultimate Sith Edition, I would give this a neutral rating and only a recommended rating if you can get the game at a discount price. The game takes place after the events of the first game and gets you to reunite with General Kota and Juno. Without spoiling too much, you play as the new and improved clone of StarKiller, twice as powerful and with two times the mayhem with two lightsabres. You are on a quest to reunite with the lovely Juno and exact your vengeance against the Dark Lord himself Darth Vader... again... Compared to the first game, this game does a few things better and a few things much worse. **Good** +For starters the graphics is much improved and the overall gameplay is still tedious but not as tedious. +The force upgrades are simplified and most of the...

Life is Strange

Life is Strange Playstation 3

Written by Viking1986 on June 01, 2017 @ 5:39 am

In short; I would describe ‘Life is Strange’ as Thirteen Reasons Why meets The Butterfly Effect. Interesting right? I would say it is! I know what you’re thinking, it’s only 5 episodes, but each episode contains at least 3 hours of gameplay! If that’s caught your attention, then read on! You incarnate Maxine Caufield, a photography student of Blackwell Academy in Arcadia Bay, Oregon. During one of her photography classes she foresees a storm heading towards her beloved town, and with the use of her ‘secret power’ it is her duty to prevent it from destroying her town. Alongside the protagonist you discover her ‘secret power ‘which allows her to rewind time, making every choice to create a butterfly effect, as well as allowing the player to look at the several options before deciding which is ‘best’. There is an immense amount of background story that you can discover as you...

Fist of the North Star - Ken's Rage Playstation 3

Written by Viking1986 on May 20, 2017 @ 5:07 pm

This game is one of mixed reviews, and mainly poor ones from known critics. So hopefully I can do it justice. As a big fan of the animated series as well as the manga 'hokuto no ken', I truly believe Tecmo Koei have presented us with a game that truly represents the series for fans to incarnate several characters of the show, and without forgetting the violence that follows! There are two different game options, the main story which follows the main plot of the show from the character selected and then there is also a Dream Mode which allows you to embark on a fictional scenario. The Dream mode also provides the player with a two player mode (I have never tried) Each character has one of two different fighting styles; Nanto and Hokuto. The game gracefully depicts each fighting style. Some missions require you to protect civilians from...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Nintendo Gamecube

Written by Adrs on May 16, 2017 @ 1:11 pm

Nintendo's Legend of Zelda franchise over the years has defined a genre, first revolutionizing the action-adventure and then evolving it with several critically acclaimed sequels spanning multiple console and handheld platforms. For many, the Zelda brand represents the pinnacle of gaming, a perfect convergence of polished design, tightly crafted control and beautiful presentation. Indeed, the N64 Ocarina of Time is widely considered the best videogames ever created. So to say that the GameCube Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has a lot to live up to is, simply put, the understatement of the year. And yet, Nintendo delivers. Director Eiji Aonuma's latest offering is a breathtakingly epic romp into a dramatically changed world 100 years after the events in the N64 classic. Wind Waker masterfully baits and hooks us in with its scope and host of improvements over previous Zelda titles, and then it takes us on a long, ultimately satisfying voyage...

Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Xbox One

Written by WoefulWanderer on April 17, 2017 @ 11:32 am

Another World is a pretty well known piece, so in a way it may not even need my review at all. In my defense, I've never played it until recently, at least until the end that is, since I have never finished it completely and hadn't a pleasure of getting all the achievements. But I enjoyed many of the hours I've put into this game, admittedly looking up a few solutions to the complex puzzles I've encountered in the game. And while the game is not that long, it didn't take quite a lot of time to finish it, upon completing it I still felt some sort of personal achievement and pat myself on the back (the two guards by the bottomless pit really got on my nerves). The renewed graphics feel fresh, but still bear the same old school 2D feeling, for those with some nostalgic attitude I'm pretty sure...

Chaser PC

Written by WoefulWanderer on April 17, 2017 @ 10:40 am

Honestly this is one of the best games I have ever played. Sure, the graphics are outdated, that's where the level design comes in, doesn't seem so bad when the stages are put together rather nicely, makes it difficult to even notice the sharp edges and such sometimes. And the story is probably the best thing about this game, one of the best plot twists at the end by far, the outcome of the main character's actions is really unexpected. I've finished this game two times already, but I'll definitely get back to it again one day. Wouldn't say this is a timeless piece, but it holds up really well for a fifteen year old game. If you are interested in some sci-fi FPS action without all the overly-futuristic weapons and gear (these old school guns make the game seem even more realistic) this would be a great game to play...

Pokémon Sun

Pokémon Sun Nintendo 3DS

Written by MudkipNinja on April 15, 2017 @ 7:16 pm

A great game overall, Pokemon Sun was one I was really excited for. Being a fan of Pokemon since I was 7, I was ready to tackle new adventures in the Alola region, but I wasn't prepared for the roller coaster of a story it brought me on! The first half of the game was pretty cool with the introduction of the new "trial" system replacing the traditional gyms. It took me a while to get a hang of the new Z-Crystal mechanic as well, but once I did, I really enjoyed watching my Pokemon pull off overpowered moves in a brief cinematic animation each time. Taking full advantage of the GTS immediately, my team was quickly formed from all 3 starters, a Misdreavus and interchanging Pokemon caught around the colorful region. I ended up putting the game down around Christmas break, but picked it back up in early April of...

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...
