Mighty No 9 review

June 25th, 2016 No comments

I don’t really want to talk about this game. I mean, I just played the demo for Bloodstained by Iga, and it’s really solid. Can I talk about that instead? I’d love to talk about a solid kickstarter game instead of this.

Yeah so Mighty No 9. I remember all the excitement and the “Inafune is saving us from Capcom who isn’t releasing Megaman!” and stuff.

I played the demo for Mighty No 9 that came out some time ago. I forget when. I had fairly negative impressions of it, it felt that, after a long time in development, it was still less than half-finished.

It was billed as a revival of Megaman… so what happened? Read on and see!

Legend of Kay Anniversary review

Legend of Kay Anniversary

I had previously queried “who asked for this?”… because really, who asked for this? Legend of Kay is a PS2 game that barely sold at all, despite confusingly decent reception from reviewers. I saw comments from people thinking it’s some underrated gem saying “the game design was really good for a 2005 game”…. Which I think is complete BS, but whatever.

I decided to give it a try anyways because it was cheap so if it’s bad, who cares.

Read on and see if I ended up liking it, or if there’s a good reason it didn’t sell back in 2005.

Puzzle & Dragons 3DS pack review

June 18th, 2015 No comments

Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition
So I’m fairly vocal about my dislike for shitty free-to-play games. There’s a huge lack of game design, at all, replaced with grinding which doesn’t ever really lead to anything at all. It just leads to more pointless grinding forever. So many of them revolve around clicking a couple things, then doing the same thing again when a timer run out. It barely even counts as an activity.

Puzzle & Dragons isn’t one I was familiar with, but I had heard of it, largely due to its popularity in Japan. It did sound a bit more interesting than other games of the free-to-play variety with both the match 3 style and the team-building pokemon aspect.

So here’s a free-to-play game, outside of its free-to-play strictures. Good or not? Read on and see!

Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal review

November 29th, 2014 No comments

Sticks Boom
Along with Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric, I also had Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystals on pre-order, which I was also planning on cancelling and forgot to do it. So… yeah.

This was developed by an entirely different company, so I figured it might be a bit more interesting after the massive disappointment of Rise of Lyric.

So let’s go and see if this is the better Sonic Boom.

Destiny review

September 22nd, 2014 No comments

Destiny has to be one of the most hyped up games this year, and it’s a new IP so that’s possibly interesting. I got into both the PS4 “alpha” (not an alpha but they called it that because DEEEERP) and the PS4 beta, and my impressions were pretty simple: it exists. Not bad, not good, just… there. It played decently but it had a lot of issues as well which I really hoped the full version would fix (and would hopefully not add its own issues).

And now the game’s out and I can tell you what I think of it!

So let’s go and see if this game is worth the 500 million dollars it cost to make and market!

Knack review

June 18th, 2014 No comments

So I’ve been spreading the truth that the PS4 isn’t worth buying right now because most of its games are either also on the old consoles (making “upgrading” useless) or on PC where you can get better versions unless they’re badly rushed ports like Watch Dogs or Wolfenstein.

While that remains true, what I was also saying was that inFamous Second Son was the only game worth playing on the system, since it was the only good exclusive (because only exclusives matter)… That’s partly false.

Knack is a launch game, and one that didn’t really get any positive press. Nonetheless, I was bored recently and decided I’d pick it up on the cheap just to have something to actually play on my PS4.

So read on and see if it’s good!

Thief review

March 6th, 2014 No comments

thief teef crap
So a new Thief game came out. I was not excited for it, and all of the impressions from Thief fans were negative each time the game was shown off.

I’m a HUGE Thief fan myself, but I appreciate the older games quite a bit, they’re really well made and offer a stealth experience unlike almost anything else on the market. I’m not sure what possessed me to do it, but I ended up picking up the new game, in hopes that maybe the hate from fans was unfounded.

It wasn’t. Read on and see why!

(note: I only played up to chapter 6, I wasn’t able to convince myself to play through the rest)

Remember Me review

July 8th, 2013 No comments

remember me (or not)
Well here’s a game I had sorta high hopes for. Namely for the combat, as preview videos made it look pretty interesting.

Sadly, the game fails on all fronts. It basically does everything an action game shouldn’t do.

So let’s take a quick look. I don’t want to make this any longer than I need to.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
Well I said in the March releases post that I’d give my impressions on the demo for Mirror of Fate…. But after playing through it twice, I find that there really isn’t much to say. I’ll still try though!

Let’s talk about this new Castlevania game!

Why I couldn’t play more than 1 level of Ninja Gaiden 3

May 10th, 2012 No comments

So Ninja Gaiden 3 came out. To a horde of angry gamers who can’t stand it. I still figured I’d give it a chance. I mean, it’s a Ninja Gaiden game, they’re generally at least somewhat enjoyable. Even Sigma 2 was kinda fun even if it was a lot more button-mashy than the first game in the rebooted series. And sometimes I end up liking games no one else likes, so maybe this would be one of those case.

So I rented it, played through a single level, and brought it back. What went wrong? Well, I COULD say “everything”, but I think we need to go into the specifics here.
