Watch_Dogs Review

watch-dogs-box-art-thanks-forbes

At some point in everyone’s life, we’ve thought to ourselves: “Man, there’s all these computers and things everywhere man, and they’re like, probably watching us and shit with them. Maybe I should learn computers and become a hacker or something man“. Only, we never did learn to become a hacker, and we never did do anything about all this surveillance and information surrounding us at all ever. This is where Watch_Dogs comes in, it’s a game about a vigilante hacker that did think to do that, that did take those measures to take a look at the information surrounding them in an age where your mobile phone is more of a computer than some laptops on the market. The world … Continue reading

Croixleur Sigma Review

croixleur-sigma-logo

Croixleur Sigma is the recent remake of the brawler/action game, Croixleur, from publisher Nyu-Media and developer Souvenir Circle. It was developed in Japan originally as Croixleur, but since then has had this recent upgrade into Croixleur Sigma, which is intended to tighten the gameplay and make things a bit more cleaner visually. The basic concept in Croixleur is that you have to battle your way to the top of a tower as a part of an exam. You have a limited time limit to do so. If you die or the timer hits 0, you lose and must start from the ground floor of the tower again. The basic premise is that you can play as one of two girls, … Continue reading

RefleX Review

reflex-logo

Fast paced and high skilled arcade rail shooters seem like a relic of the past in todays gaming climate. This is incredibly unfortunate because there are some really good games out there, and coming from out there, that really show that the genre still has the power that it once had, and can still outshine some of the games of now. RefleX is definitely an example of this. If you grew up playing games in the 90′s, chances are you’ve played a shooter game like RefleX. These kinds of games are the ones where you control a flying vehicle, through space or the sky, and fight waves after waves of enemies with often complex attack patterns. These kinds of games … Continue reading

Titanfall Review

titanfall-box-art-pc

Titanfall is the recently released First Person Shooter game from Respawn Entertainment and published by EA. It’s a multiplayer shooter that has players controlling Pilots of giant mechatronic robotic machines, called Titans, as they battle each other across multiple maps and worlds. Titanfall has been pushed for its online multiplayer campaign and classic modes, while offering a fast-paced competitive backdrop with unique movement options and even more unique gameplay through the use of Titans. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? One of the first things you’ll notice about Titanfall is that is a multiplayer only game. What’s unusual about this kind of setup is that in Titanfall, players will find that there is an included campaign mode to play through. However, … Continue reading

Gigantic Army Review

gigantic-army-logo

Gigantic Army is the latest video game localised by Nyu-Media for release on the PC platform. The game itself is a 2D side-scrolling action game that is very reminiscent of arcade styled sidescrollers from the past. The game sees players inside of a giant military mech as they move from level to level gunning down foes in an epic war. What’s cool about Gigantic Army is that there’s something really cool that you’ll notice straight off the bat. And that thing is the awesome as heck soundtrack. Like really, the game has that retro sounding, but really modern, pumping soundtrack that just lays the scene out for players as they move about the game in their mechanised war machine of … Continue reading
