Furi

Furi PC

Written by Lightningstrike197 on January 05, 2018 @ 8:05 pm

Furi is a game that manages to do a lot with a little. In terms of core mechanics, it's incredibly basic. Most of the game takes place from a top down perspective where the playable character, Rider(a.k.a The Stranger), has the ability to fire a simple projectile, execute a melee attack which does have a combo string if the button is pressed repeated, charge either of the two attacks, dash to a set position, and parry. However each of these mechanics have a variety of uses within the game, and can be combined in various ways. On top of that, each of the game's 10 are designed to test the player's skill with the mechanics in a variety of different ways, ensuring that players will have to get the most out of the mechanics to succeed in Furi. Furi is almost entirely comprised of multi-phase boss fights. With a few exceptions,...

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series

The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series PC

Written by Loquev on January 01, 2018 @ 3:41 pm

One of the most emotional games I ever played. The tension between the characters, the desperate situations, the deadly events, the gory parts. The graphics feel like we are actually in a comic book without being dramatic. Such a small detail but a beautiful one because that's what makes it so original and attached to its roots (since TWD first started as a series of comic books before moving to television & gaming). You get attached to the players, you get mad alongside your player, you cry, you FEEL. What other games fail to bring, TWD succeeds. I highly recommend this game because it's unique, it's beautiful and it's a story worth hearing. It's not a horror game, it's not a "shoot & run" game but more like a revealing-story which changes as you progress and make decisions with Lee and social interactions with the other characters....

Doom 3: BFG Edition

Doom 3: BFG Edition PC

Written by Loquev on January 01, 2018 @ 1:55 pm

Doom 3 has some excellent highs and unfortunately some awful lows. Overall it's a great game with great graphics (considering that it first came out on 2004) and amazing sound effects & visuals, at times it's really repetitive to the point where nothing shocks you anymore and doesn't bring anything new to the table. Same sceneries, same monsters, same tasks, same doors. The story is appealing for a FPS game despite the fact that some parts reminded me of the Half-Life 1 game (characters & ideas). In addition, the game progresses unbearably slow for a Doom game. It's just goes on and on and on, it almost feels like it's never ending, practically tiring. The gore, the random screams & whispers, the blood stained floors & walls, the satanic symbols, the overall darkness, are all a pretty nice touch to the design and the environment is remarkable. But besides that,...

Ben 10: Protector of Earth Nintendo DS

Written by JusticeOptified on December 24, 2017 @ 7:31 am

Honestly, this was the FIRST EVER game I played as a child. It's stuck with me throughout my years and for good reasons in fact. As you load the game you are placed directly into the story convenient for a child and allows you a growing variety of aliens to choose from not making it difficult to comprehend. Furthermore, as I continue on with the game repeating certain levels for the highest score possible, I'm reminded again and again from the unique move set that can be unlocked for each hero making you hooked to the game. Some moves can be strong, simple and even outright amazing which actually motivates you to unlock the rest of the content and try it out against the vast variety of enemies in the game. The levels are designed to be more diverse than the one before like going from a canyon to a swamp to even...

Sonic Generations

Sonic Generations Playstation 3

Written by Snivy102 on December 20, 2017 @ 5:11 pm

Specific thoughts coming from a PC player. The PC port of this game is near flawless, with minor glitches very rarely. I say port because Generations first released on consoles. However, similar to most multiplatform games at the time, Generations was made for the 360 and ported to the PS3. Below, I'll outline the differences between all three versions of this game: Framerate - 360 has a pretty stable framerate (locked at 30 fps) - PS3 less stable (not sure if PS3 is unlocked 60 fps, similar to Unleashed) - PC obviously has a stable 60 fps Texture Quality - 360 supposedly has higher res textures than PS3 (if true, the difference must be extremely small because I can't notice it) - PC gives you options for max graphical settings; it obviously looks the best Resolution - PC is native 1080p - PS3 and 360 say it's 1080p, but I have a feeling it's 720p upscaled to 1080p because that's more...

WWE 2K15 Xbox 360

Written by JusticeOptified on December 17, 2017 @ 1:12 pm

Me and my brother picked this game up like two years ago and was finished by the time 17 came out. This game is one of those yearly products like FIFA and NBA2K, so as we buy it another one of them releases two months later. Be aware, I wasn't bothered to buy 2K16. The start menu and mainly the selection screen contains a certain collection of music as you scroll by to your game, it gets somewhat annoying for me later on but this could mainly be for the fact that i am not interested in that type of music so it got really irritating as the title screen loaded up every time I launched the game. The game offers a vast selection of modes such as Ladder matches and Cage fights however this only adds a slight distinguishment and yet does not really create a sense of variation between the modes....

Xenoblade Chronicles

Xenoblade Chronicles Nintendo Wii

Written by xeusperona on December 01, 2017 @ 9:50 am

Xenoblade Chronicles is a game to remember that deserves more popularity. Please do note that this review might contain spoilers but I'll do my best to hide them. Story and characters: The story starts out as a simple quest for revenge that turns into something much more than just that. The scene that started the protagonist's revenge has got to be one of the best opening scenes of gaming ever. It really isn't the opening scene of the game, but for sure it's the scene that sets the main goal of the first part of the story and it's the scene that causes the journey of the protagonist to begin with. The story contains a lot of twists that will make your jaws drop, especially the ending. OH THE ENDING. Aside from the big twist at the end, the ending is really satisfying. It's the kind of ending I haven't seen...

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...

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.

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 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! 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...

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...
