Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ is awesome. I’ve played it a lot and got very high on many of the leaderboards in it. When I saw it was getting a sequel I was really hyped.
So I’ve played it a bit and it’s time for a mini-review! Not much to say about this one. See if I liked it or if the sequel’s a dud.
The first Mirror’s Edge was a really cool game. It was a breath of fresh air in an industry that was drowning itself in brown. Ended up being one of my favorite games of last gen, it’s real fun. Not just the graphic presentation (the story was crap), but the gameplay was exhilarating.
It took quite a long time before we finally got this sequel. I was a bit wary of it because it was so long since the first game, and they’re making it a reboot and stuff. I did play the beta and it seemed fine, though I didn’t go too far into it.
So let’s see if it lives up.
So this was a game that came out to zero fanfare… and seemingly zero copies on store shelves, as the low reviews got Nintendo to make this a super limited release.
This sounded interesting went first presented. A new action game with multiple gameplay styles made by some of the team who worked on the Ninja Gaiden remake (a series that went downhill after that first game, but whatever)? Seems like there’s some good potential there.
So read on and see what I thought of it. Does it live up to Ninja Gaiden?
Note: I played what seems to be most of the game, but I have not completed it yet (and won’t, I’m done with this). So if you want to take this with a grain of salt, go right ahead. There’s no way the gameplay improves along the way.
So people have been freaking the hell out about this “Last of Us” game. It got GotY award after GotY award, and people are just going crazy about how good it is. But everything I saw seemed to show a really subpar, average game with nothing really special to it. Like, Uncharted (see: not a great series) with more limited ammo. It just sounded like overrated trash to me.
I figured I’d check it out if I could find it cheap. Then the remaster was announced, so I decided to keep waiting until the remaster would be cheap. And I did, when I managed to find it for 12$.
So is this overrated trash as I thought it would be, or is it a very surprising gem? Read on and see!
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.
So here’s a game I bought by mistake. I had it on pre-order, thinking I’d cancel it depending on early impressions. After early impressions I knew I’d cancel it, however I forgot to cancel it… I was about to… just as I got an email saying it shipped. I thought it was out later in November, so I thought I would be okay… Whoops.
I was actually a little bit excited about this game when it was originally announced, considering the staff behind it being ex-members of Naughty Dog from back when that company was at least semi-competent. Even when early impressions were negative, I figured maybe it was a super-early build and the final product might have a chance to be decent.
Well, the final result was… less than desirable. So let’s talk about it for a quick review.
A game that got almost no hype until getting close to release, where reviews were surprisingly glowing, and some comments from E3 were pretty positive.
My hype was very low because it looked very similar to the super-crap that is the Assassin’s Creed series, but with maybe better combat and a more interesting story maybe. But the reviews started coming out and it sounded like it did certain things well so… hey, might end up being fun. I had it pre-ordered on the super-cheap, so might as well try it out.
Read on and see why it wasn’t!
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!
Right from the first gameplay trailer for this game I assumed it wouldn’t be good. The reasons were many, but frankly it just didn’t look fun to play or challenging. It seemed to me like a big downgrade from the first games.
I ended up buying it anyways… probably because I REALLY wanted this to be good.
So read on and see if it was!

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.
