Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is an inherently inferior compilation in comparison to the first, mainly due to its lineup of games, but it excels in bringing back to light some my least favorite entries in the franchise. In fact, Capcom has done an admirable job putting this new collection together. Although neither Mega Man… Continue reading Mega Man Legacy Collection 2’s lineup might be disappointing, but it more than makes up in content
It’s really hard to approach Nioh without talking about From Software’s Souls franchise’s influence on modern videogame design. Nowadays, practically every game to come out with action RPG elements is invariably compared to Souls. While From Software’s groundbreaking work is undeniable, it’s worth pulling the break and look at games for their own merits. Nioh… Continue reading Nioh Review – The path to mastery is a rocky one, amrita?
If there’s one thing that Telltale’s really good at it's playing with our expectations. Their dealing of third-party franchises has seen mixed results over the years, and while they’ve been mostly positive, there’s no helping feeling a little uneasy seeing them step out of their comfort zone. That was the case when it was announced… Continue reading Batman: A Telltale Series Episode Five Review – Toe to toe
It finally happened. Bruce Wayne spent a night in Arkham Asylum, and it wasn't a social call as his alter ego. Episode four, the penultimate part in Telltale's Batman series opens up as our boy Bruce is just waking up after his drug-induced psychotic attack at the end of part three. Seems like his pal… Continue reading Batman: A Telltale Series Episode Four Review – Committed
The third episode in Telltale's take on Batman manages to cram just a little bit of everything that's associated to the caped crusader's legacy, as well as add a few more layers to the studio's own take of DC Comics' icon's mythos. The stage was set for Harvey Dent's ascent to the mayor's office at… Continue reading Batman: A Telltale Series Episode Three Review – A little bit of everything
Generating big crowds of people has been one of gaming's next leaps in technology. Some games have managed to convey these with moderate amounts of success, but most of the times, they end up looking like a handful of repeated character models bunched up together, going through canned animation cycles. The first game that really… Continue reading Hitman Episode 3: Marrakech Review – Coping with the coup
There are few things in Hitman that give me more grins than doing a perfect run through a complex level. The second episode in the new Hitman season has 47 infiltrating the villa of a dangerously cunning chemist in the beautiful coastal city of Sapienza, in Italy, in quite possibly one of the franchise's biggest levels… Continue reading Hitman Episode 2: Sapienza Review – Knowledge is power
On a personal level, the Hitman franchise has rarely disappointed me. Sure, 2000's Hitman: Codename 47 was already kinda bad back then, but it helped introduced elements that are still seen in the series today. It was with its sequel, Silent Assassin, that things really started to pick up for our bald cold blooded killer, thanks… Continue reading Hitman Episode 1: Paris Review – Down the runway
Odin Sphere was a late era PlayStation 2 game that saw incredibly positive reviews and have since garnered a faithful following as a cult classic. Unfortunately, due to how close it came out to new and more powerful hardware, it didn't get the same public awareness as the titles coming out at the time for PlayStation… Continue reading Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Review – A story for the ages
We've got another fresh video review from Alex Jackson! This time, he sets his sights on the new (old?) Ratchet and Clank, out now on the PlayStation 4.
