Overwatch – Watch Over, Anticipate the Release

overwatch-wallpaper-001

Overwatch is the upcoming team-based shooter from Blizzard, and a game that I really, really, really, didn’t want to like. Looking at the marketing for the game, the MOBA-like gameplay elements, the art-style and what seemed like a general direction in the path of casualness, I didn’t think that I’d like this. At all. It wasn’t until someone I knew said that they were checking out the Open Beta, someone that didn’t traditionally play shooters, that I decided to check this out. After-all, if they enjoyed this, maybe I could convince them to play a real game. But man, I’m glad as heck that I tagged along, because Overwatch really took me back to that feeling I got playing Assault … Continue reading

DOOM Open Beta Impressions – The DOOM of a Franchise

trash

Note: This impression is based on the Open Beta of DOOM which is multiplayer only. If there was a playable Demo of a portion of the Single Player, this would be a much more accurate reflection of the end product. But alas, the multiplayer sucks. Today, Bethesda and iD Software released the Open Beta of their latest reboot in the DOOM franchise, DOOM. This latest DOOM is supposed to be the next coming in video games, and judging by the visuals, you’d be hard-pressed to argue that a decent amount of effort wasn’t put into the game. Thanks to how heavily marketed this game is (we seriously have advertisements in train stations near where I live for this game), it’s … Continue reading

Nights of Azure Review (PlayStation 4)

Gust deserve some credit when it comes to Nights of Azure. This is the first time they have attempted an action RPG and the game is quite a solid effort. Released in 2015 in Japan for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3, Koei Tecmo has brought the game to the West as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. What we get from Nights of Azure is a solid hac and slash action RPG with some interesting elements to add to the classic combo gameplay. With that said, it’s quite easy to power through the game and the story needed some more work. It does have a great soundtrack but the art style is a little bland. The story centres around … Continue reading

Rainbow Moon Review (PS4)

Rainbow Moon is a well thought out love letter by SideQuest Studios to all things great about the old school RPG. In a world where the role playing genre of video games push the boundaries of gameplay and visuals, Rainbow Moon sticks with the simplistic, yet enduring gaming elements of years past. First released in 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and seeing a second release in in 2013 on the PlayStation Vita, this third release on the PlayStation 4 combines an easy to learn, yet tricky to master strategic combat system, quirky and bright visuals and a strong soundtrack makes Rainbow Moon a game worth checking out. Unfortunately, don’t expect the plot or characters to be spellbinding, an element that … Continue reading
