Mass Effect: Andromeda is the latest title in, and spin-off of, the Mass Effect franchise. Gamers take on the new role of Ryder as a “Pathfinder”, an explorer that can do whatever they want as they are mostly above authority, to help establish colonies across the Andromeda galaxy. However, the Andromeda region may not be as hospitable to life as the team had envisioned. It’s a new galaxy, and with it, a new adventure and new dangers await. I’m going to say this as soon as possible so that people can immediately determine whether or not they will enjoy playing Mass Effect: Andromeda or not. The writing in this game feels as though it was written by a 14 year … Continue reading
Anima: Gate of Memories is a Kickstarter project based on the Spanish tabletop RPG Anima: Beyond Fantasy developed by Anima Project. In this action RPG, players control two characters; the Bearer and Ergo, as they attempt to retrieve an artifact known as the Byblos. Despite the ambitions of the development team and their passion to deliver the best product they can, Anima Gate of Memories turns out to be a mediocre experience. While the lore of the world, combined with the decent graphics and sound, turns out to be very creative and combat is surprisingly well thought out, the game suffers from frustrating platforming, a uncooperative camera, a dull narrative and uninteresting characters. In Anima: Gate of Memories, two members … Continue reading
Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raider of the Lost Quark is a side-scrolling platformer published by Team 17 and developed by Italic Pig. In Schrodinger’s Cat, players assume the role of the titular creature as they explore and solve puzzles in the Particle Zoo of various subatomic particles. The game is a simple game, but it has many complexities using a combo system where players can combine particles to create various effects, assisting them in their exploration and safety within the Zoo. The story of Schrodinger’s Cat and the Raiders of the Lost Quark begins with a nice little explanation on the world that the game takes place in. It’s something along the lines of a pocket world on the inside … Continue reading
It’s the 14th century. Two of Europe’s most powerful kingdoms, England and France, are locked into battle. Normanday, the Flanders, Brittany see more bloodshed by the day. For 120 years, as one century passes into the next, these two kingdoms fight for control of France. This is the setting for Bladestorm Nightmare, the latest game from Koei Tecmo and Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, available for the Playstation 4, PC and Xbox One. It is a remake of Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 but with additional features, including a second story mode entitled Nightmare. The meat of the game revolves around the legendary conflict. However, instead of taking control of key figures, such as … Continue reading
Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires is the latest Dynasty Warriors game from Omega Force and Koei. Empires is built on the same engine that runs Dynasty Warriors 8 and adds in the Empire mode seen in previous Dynasty Warriors Empires games, such as 6 and 7. In Empires, players take up the role of an officer in a warring China, with many factions battling each other over territory. The goal, it seems, is to conquer all of China and unite them under the same banner. At it’s core though, it’s still a Dynasty Warriors game. Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires doesn’t particularly have a storyline for players to follow. Instead, players choose from pre-built (or custom) scenarios in Empire mode, scenarios that … Continue reading
Dead Or Alive is the fighting game series that has been around since before the Playstation 2, but most fans will remember it from Dead Or Alive 2 on that system. Since then, the title has gone on to appear on the original Xbox with Dead or Alive 3, the Xbox 360 with Dead Or Alive 4 and finally the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 with Dead Or Alive 5, and it’s re-release, Dead Or Alive 5: Ultimate. Dead Or Alive 5: Last Round takes the latest Dead Or Alive 5, increases it’s graphical abilities, throws in a bunch of extras and releases itself on our current generation of systems, the Xbox One and Playstation 4. Team Ninja and Tecmo … Continue reading
The Escapists is the prison breaking game from Mouldy Toof Studios and Team 17. The game has the player controlling a prison inmate in order to escape from prison, using nothing but their wits and the resources available to them during their tenure at the prison. We have also previously Previewed the title. Check that out here. Unlike most games, The Escapists doesn’t really have a strong and compelling storyline to push the player through the game. Instead, it leaves the reason that you’re in the prison vague and focuses almost entirely on the prison breaking aspect of the game. One could say that it’s up to the player to reason to themselves why it is that they’re in the … Continue reading
