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.
