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
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
Very recently, the video game development studio, Digital Homicide, has engaged in a lawsuit against the big-man former-Destructoid journalist, Jim Sterling (real name: James Nicholas Stanton). The lawsuit is in regards to what the developers believe is Jim Sterling publishing false allegations towards them and inciting a mob to attack, harass and possibly endanger the developers and their family. Below is an excerpt from their page detailing why they are going ahead with their lawsuit. I have been falsely accused of: Stealing artwork Stealing assets Flipping projects with no work put in Doxing Had products misrepresented with intention to do damage Of illegally using another companies name Conducting illegal business activities Impersonating someone Being incompetent and unable to perform my job … Continue reading
Kindred Spirits on the Roof was quite the surprise. Developed by Liar-soft and published in English by MangaGamer, Kindred Spirits on the Roof tells the story of two female ghosts who died without experiencing sex for the first time, mainly because they died at different times. With the help of a student, the trio bring together various women in order for the two ghosts to learn how two women have sex. Despite the premise, the story happens to be great, The characters are interesting, the art style is nice and the music is enjoyable. However, it does have a few issues. The visual novel revolves around Toomi Yuna, a second year student at Kokonotsuboshi Girls’ Academy of Commerce. During lunch … Continue reading
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
… because calling it a translation at this point would be wrong. Earlier this week, we wrote about the fan backlash from the recently released Fire Emblem Fates video game that was just released in the US. Fans were concerned about the state of the game as it had, in comparison to the Japanese original, a tonne of “quality” translations, complete character personality rewrites, removal of gameplay content and more. In relation to this, we had requested that Nintendo give us some details on why these changes were made. Below is the statement given to us by our Nintendo representative. Making changes when bringing games to the West is a common part of the localisation process for many companies, including … Continue reading
Very recently, the latest game in the Fire Emblem series, Fire Emblem Fates, was released in the US. While Fire Emblem games haven’t traditionally been too popular and instead had a pretty niche playerbase, the previous game in the title, Fire Emblem Awakening, brought the series to a more mainstream gaming audience. This latest title has taken fire from gamers who are claiming that they have found that the experience portrayed in the Japanese version of the game has been dramatically altered and neutered during the localisation process before the release of the game. Looking through some of the gamers complaints, it’s hard to deny that they believe that they have been deliberately mislead when it has come to the … Continue reading
