Azure Striker Gunvolt Review: Lightning Strikes Twice

August 28th, 2014 -

Since Inafune left Capcom in 2010, all things related to Mega Man have pretty much been put on halt by Capcom (other than cameos). People have been clamoring for something new in the series while indie developers push titles that are similar in gameplay, some just re-skinned ripoffs, and others still that are more or less spiritual successors. If you’ve been missing the Boy in Blue (not Nic Cage), allow me to tell you a bit about Azure Striker Gunvolt. Read More »

When Lightning Strikes Blue

August 21st, 2014 -

The newest title from Inti Creates is nearly here, and if you think Azure Striker Gunvolt looks like Mega Man… well, you’re right. It definitely has a lot of similar elements. If you don’t know Inti Creates, perhaps you haven’t followed the offshoots of the Blue Bomber over the years. Mega Man Zero, Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man 9 & 10 are all on their résumé, in addition to a load of Japanese only titles and the co-development of the upcoming Shantae games. Read More »

And if you want something different, play Assassin’s Creed Rogue, where you go from Assassin to Assassin Hunter. Read More »

When in Kyrat, Visit Shangri-La

August 17th, 2014 -

After surviving a desert, savanaah, and jungle, are you prepared to venture forth in the Himalayas? Whether you’re fighting for survival in Kyrat, or going against something much more spiritual in Shangri-La, this game will push you further than ever before. Will there be forests like previous adventures? Definitely, but there will also be snowy peaked mountain tops that may make you think of Uncharted 2. And as you’ve no doubt seen in the co-op videos (this game has drop-in/drop-out co-op), there is now a gyrocopter at your disposal. What better way to check out a new area than from above? And when you’re done with that, make your entrance from wherever you decide is best with your wingsuit. Read More »
