Oceanhorn – Monster of Uncharted Seas Review: A Hero of our Time

September 22nd, 2016 -

Over the years there have been lots of games that copied one another’s formulas, some being more successful than others. Every holiday now you can expect to get competing military shooters. Turn on Steam and look at the greenlit games and I’m sure you’ll find plenty that gimp one another frame for frame after only a few moments. There was a time when Collect-a-Thon games were big, but Nintendo held the crowning champs with Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie. Games like Vexx and the 3D Gex entries, while fun, don’t hold memories for people that Nintendo’s titles do (though A Hat in Time is shaping up nicely, and the upcoming Yooka-Laylee should be amazing and probably the new standard for the genre).

One of Nintendo’s most beloved series stars a princess in the title that you see very little of in the game. While there are plenty of action/adventure games that come out every year, very few if any get compared to the Zelda games. The last I recall really getting remarks like that was Darksiders.

Shiness Gamescom 2016 Trailer

The more I see of this game, the more excited I get. It’s giving me some great vibes from PS1/PS2 RPGs that I miss. What do you guys think? Look good, or too retro for you?

INVERSUS Review: Battling the Upside Down

August 16th, 2016 -

For the first time since… I want to say ModNation Racers (yes, six years ago) we have a video review for your enjoyment. The game deals with negative space in a way that seems so obvious I’m surprised it hasn’t been implemented earlier in video games. For immediate gratification, click through. To actually learn a bit about the game, watch the video. Read More »
