I don’t honestly know how many people ever read this site, I know a few people followed me over to youtube but I image if you prefer to read you never did. i stopped updating this site years ago and as you may have seen links have stopped working in many places.
I recently however started a new blog, talking about games and how I’m introducing them to my children. If that’s something your interested in along with stories of my life making games and general reviews of what I’m playing still you might like it…
If not thanks for following this little blog from when i was younger
That awesome Final Fantasy game you wanted but never cam out in English, it’s coming next year but I thought’d I’d take a look at the original version to see what the original Type-0 was like to play.
Final Fantasy Type-0 is a very daring game, aesthetically nothing like any previous game, a third person tactical JRPG with a few inspirations taken from Final Fantasy VIII. It’s a huge, but rather hard game that tales a fair amount of getting used to, especially the controls.
This Final Fantasy Type-0 Review is one of the longest Fresh Perspective Reviews I’ve done in a while.. but it is a big game!
The latest Tales of games to arrive to the western audiences is an enhanced remake of the original Tales of Hearts DS, with a new engine, graphics,game play and characters. I didn’t import this one so I had to wait a while to review it.
However its still unfortunatly a flawed game, especially with its animation and feels more like a PSP game with enhanced controls and not a fresh Vita game.
Pier Solar comes to HD on Xbox One.. originally a 2010 Mega Drive / Genesis game and Dreamcast game this update certainly looks the part, but does Pier Solar HD do more then just a visual upgrade?
Pier Solar on Xbox One plays ok.. save for the controller that isn’t really made for constant d-pad use, it’s feels just like a retro RPG, from difficulty to length.. there plenty here to see!
The Marvellous Miss Take does what few games are currently doing, putting a strong female in the lead roll. Though you’ll see a fair few inspirations from Lara Croft and the gameplay is clearly inspired by the early Metal Gear Solid games.
The Marvellous Miss Take is a stunning little game that plays well, though perhaps under-developed on the story side as well as perhaps taking a marvelous miss step in not having a much humor as they perhaps could have in a game such as this… it could have easily been an amazing parody game.
Legacy of Kain returns but maybe not how you expected. The realm of Nosgoth gives way to epic online multiplayer battles, far removed from the adventures of Raziel and Kain.
In review however Nosgoth is actually a very fun experiece to play, the need to co ordinate is paramount and going this game alone will make you suffer in constant death.
Nosgoth isn’t quite there yet as a game however I like where it is now and can’t wait to see it how it evolves from here.
Chroma Squad is the kickstarter tactical game based around running your own studio making a knockoff super sentai/power ranger themed show, and here’s a review the Beta released to backers.
Chroma Squad is a fun little game within a game that successfully parody’s power rangers, super sentai and other tokusatsu shows like kamen rider while being open enough that you don’t have to be a fan them yourselves to enjoy it.
Randal’s Monday is the point and click game developers by new studio Nexus Games tht geeks have been waiting some years for. Termed point and geek by the developers; Randal’s Monday referencs all geek culture and in perticular the Kevin Smith Clerks film series. Jeff Anderson returns to voice a Randal charcter based on the Randal of Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob also appear.
Like traditional point and clink adventure games your looking at a very hard game but with enough love and geek culture packed in your sure to love it!
It’s almost Steampunk in name only but as a game its fun and very addictive once your gone through the basics.. and randomly generated so every game is different.
The Alien Vs Man shooter returns for a sequel and I got given early access to try the game out. Between local and online multiplayer this game s actually quite fun with the tactical options given to you and does bring back memories of old Alien Vs Predator games in its execution but with a more modern experience/class based twist
Following on from my previous Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix collection review earlier in the year I imported myself a copy of Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix.
This collection reviews the included games; Kingdom Hearts 2 and Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep. Also included is a new movie based off the cutscenes from Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded from the Nintendo DS.
Overall its clear that Square Enix are going to continue pushing up the br with their HD collections and I can’t wait for Final Fantasy Type-0 to come out next year!
Does Hatred offend you from you saw in the trailer? Chances are given what else is on the market you might be being a little hypocritical, even if your correct.
In Hatred; context is every thing, and without knowing the intent of the developers its hard to really know if its trying to make an ironic point (especially when compared to something like The Evil Within) or just pushing boundries for the sake or it.. or the sake of easy publicity.
The game that changed it all. This time Why You Should Play delves into Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, a game forever changing the game in what we expect from a modern FPS game. From amazing story to ground breaking multiplayer Modern Warfare did a lot for the industry.
Ahead of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, which is attempting to capture the same passion that MW did let’s explore the game changer in a little detail.
