Styx – Master of Shadows Review: Enveloped by Darkness

October 21st, 2014 -

The first game I played that really pushed stealth mechanics was Metal Gear Solid. It was vastly different from my first experience with Metal Gear on the NES. Since ’98 I’ve always enjoyed delving into various stealth experiences, attempting to be undetected for as long as possible in games that don’t even focus on that aspect. Following my disappointment with the recent Thief, I was eagerly awaiting the next title that would have me lurking in the shadows. Styx: Master of Shadows snuck past many, but is it because it hid so well, or because it isn’t worth noticing? Read More »

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse Review: A Risky Reward

October 20th, 2014 -

With sequels to games coming out on a yearly or bi-yearly schedule, it’s weird to say a trilogy is coming to an end after twelve years. However, that is the case with the release of Pirate’s Curse. Obviously it’s not the last game with Shantae, as Half-Genie Hero is due out in the near future. However, it does bring a close to the story that’s been spanning over the past decade. It’s not necessary that you’ve played the previous entries, but it is definitely recommended. So, let’s get into this – I’ll do my best to avoid spoilers, but I will be discussing a few from the previous entries – you’ve been warned. Read More »

That’s right, GOG is giving away Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 away for free as part of their expanded beta of GOG Galaxy. If you aren’t sure what that is, it’s GOG’s new multiplayer client (think Steam, but it’s still DRM free)! So why give away Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000? Well, aside from being awesome, think of it as a payment of gratitude for helping them make the service as user friendly and capable as possible. Oh, and you know how I mentioned Steam earlier? You’ll be able to play this version with all your friends that have it on Steam. Cross-compatibility baby! Not right away, but there will soon be a patch to add that in. So let’s recap: free game, multiplayer on GOG, able to play free game with Steam friends in addition to GOG friends. All for free. FREE! Sounds like a killer deal to me. Make sure you hurry though, you only have 48 hours to partake in this deal!
