Travis has a conversation with a gamer about their best experiences, their impressions on the current state, and where they think gaming should go.
Camille looks into Microsofts revisions to the Xbox One and expresses her personal opinion on this in the included video.
Giving an opinion on a game is always a hard thing to do. Many look at gameplay, graphics, story, multiplayer, single player etc. An aspect often overlooked is the audio scores in these games.
Jeremy and Richard are going to look at one good game each that in their opinion became great games due to their audio scores.
So we all know everybody was looking forward to Dark Souls II. Could you blame them? No, not really. Demon’s Souls was awesome, Dark Souls was awesome and if the reviews are to be believed, Dark Souls II is also awesome. This trailer is full of those scores and a nice, ominous, voice-over.
I’ll be the first to admit when I first saw the trailer for the Rambo game, I was intrigued. “I will play this,” I thought to myself “If only for a laugh”. Thankfully I never did dip into my generally empty wallet, taking away valuable booze money, because every bit of evidence points to the game being arse.
The Sacred games are good. Indeed, I would go as far as to call Sacred 2 a great game. Oh sure, it did nothing new, had no spectacular sweeping plot or acting. What it had was a huge fun world to explore and lots of stuff to kill. Here’s Sacred 3 to carry on with the trend.
Thief is coming out soon. Another reboot of another classic franchise that may, or may not, be done justice. Will Thief be good or bad? That is the question that haunts us all, or just me. Well there’s enough material out there for me to be a git and decide if I think it’ll be good or not, let’s find out.
I like Spiders. Why? Well, they have ambition but you’re pretty much safe with them, look at about four different bits of information and you’ll pretty much know how a game is going to play – then you’re in it for the story. Bound By Blame has given us another bit of information in the form of a ‘video that covers everything’ and this means that we’ve probably got enough now to judge it.
Dragon Ball Z has always been an Animé/Manga with a staggering popularity, both in its native land of Japan and also overseas, particularly in the US and the UK. This popularity was always going to ensure a number of game adaptations, but what has also helped has been a number of strong games that have used the DBZ license well, particularly the Budokai Tenkaichi series. Is this another game doing the franchise justice, or is it one that doesn’t help at all? That’s what I’m here to find out.
I’ve spent a bit of time in the past writing about Bound By Flame, the upcoming RPG by Spiders, the studio behind Of Orcs and Men and Mars: War Logs. Hell, it comes as no shock because I’m a sucker for these RPG’s and Spiders, while not having a record of making spectacular entries in the genre, are pretty consistent and improving. Well, new details on their next release, Bound By Flame, are up on the newly launched website for the game.
