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 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
Tearaway is easily one of the best PlayStation Vita titles available for the system. So it’s nice to see its bigger brother, the PlayStation 4, receiving the same game, albeit built from the ground up. Entitled Tearaway Unfolded, this remaster of the PlayStation Vita title follows a messenger on their task of sealing a hole between their world and ours. With solid gameplay, a sleuth of creative controls, a beautiful art style and customisation, Tearaway Unfolded turns out to be an excellent experience. It makes a very successful transition between the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 4. At it’s core, Tearaway is a pretty straight forward platforming game. With most platforming games, the story is of little importance. But there … Continue reading
There is a rich history in the Gauntlet series. Starting way back in 1985 on the Nintendo Entertainment System, it’s a staple in hack and slash arcade gaming. Last year, Arrowhead Game Studios released an updated version/reimagining in 2014 for the PC. Now, the game has been re-released with new content and tweaks to the core gameplay, known as Gauntlet: Slayer Edition. Released for the PlayStation 4 and a free update for PC players, it’s a fun game for a group of friends or even solo, but the solo experience seems to have a small handicap attached to it. The core of last year’s release on PC is still the same and you can read a more in-depth analysis in … Continue reading
99% science and 1% fantasy was, according to Wikipedia, the challenge that the developers of Steins;Gate, 5pb and Nitroplus+, had in their mind when creating this amazing piece of Visual Novel literature. Steins;Gate follows the story of a small Otaku club dedicated to creating gadgets to fight the war against ‘The Organisation’, a group that is probably based on more chuunibyou fantasies than reality. However, the group soon unlocks the ability to send messages to the past, and end up in the midst of an international conspiracy. The novel boasts 6 different endings, an interesting cast of characters and a storyline that is based on hard science theories. This is one of the best things that I have ever read … Continue reading
LA Cops could have been fun. There is still some elements of gameplay that did make it a fun experience, but the Modern Dream developed action/puzzle game does fall short of a fantastic experience. It’s an 1970’s inspired buddy cop game featuring eight main missions and several side missions with several difficulty levels to suit any level of gamer. It’s a short game, at most lasting a few hours of gameplay. However, despite some challenging moments, the game can lose its shine early on and can be a bit of a chore to play through. The game doesn’t have an overarching story, rather there are eight different missions to be completed. Set in various locations around the USA, they range … Continue reading
To see Omega Force to develop a game such as Toukiden is quite interesting. Despite their decorated history focusing on musou games such as Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and the recently enhanced port of Bladestorm, Omega Force dives into the action role playing genre. Toukiden: The Age of Demons was released in June 2013 in Japan and February 2014 in North America and Europe, exclusively for the Playstation Portable (in Japan) and the Playstation Vita. The game was a hit in Japan and an enhanced port, entitled Toukiden Kiwami was developed for the two Playstation handhelds as well as the Playstation 4 (only in the west). It can be safely said, then, that playing Toukiden Kiwami has been an enjoyable … Continue reading
