Rarely does a Kickstarter stretch goal lead to the development of a new game, but that’s exactly the case with Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon.
The Oceans series is one of the easiest examples to point to when it comes to popcorn entertainment unique to the medium of film.
The Incredibles was a defining movie for Pixar. It demonstrated what could be possible in animation in the superhero genre, and it defined what could do given the right talent. Now 14 years later Pixar and Disney are have brought the team back for the follow-up, and while still a magical formula, some of the magic has been lost in the delay.
When it comes to DLC for the Total War: Warhammer series, Creative Assembly typically develops one of two types: either the DLC adds a completely new race, or it bolsters already existing factions. The Queen and The Crone is in the latter camp, adding two new legendary lords and several units to the sprawling strategy game. But in contrast to previous DLC packs, The Queen and The Crone feels hollow, changing little in how either of the two featured factions play.
For the longest time, the Sci-fi industry has had its eye opened on what at first seems like a mundane question: What happens after we are gone? I’ve always wondered when such expansive question would transition into the world of gaming, and fortunately, Smoke And Sacrifice has finally brought the idea to the table, but with a few quintessential sacrifices.
Crossovers are a staple in fighting games. Capcom’s made numerous titles focusing on their stable of characters battling their counterparts from Marvel, Tatsunoko, and others. Now, Arc System Works is taking it’s shot at crossovers with BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a decent Vampire-themed RPG, at least it feels that way. Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines was such a fabulous game that while I’m sure there have been other games in the Vampire RPG genre since then…I can’t think of any.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has done the impossible. It went from one of the most throwaway action dramas in recent history with season one to one of the most memorable. Over the course of five long years, the series has re-invented itself, and slowly forged a capable band of misfits that are worth watching week after week.
While Apple’s Pro lineup of products continues to push new and innovative ideas into the marketplace, it also makes the wallets of many consumers weep with sorrow. Due to large price tags scaring away new buyers, Apple has shifted their strategy somewhat and is now developing an affordable core lineup of products. That strategy starts with the 2018 iteration of the iPad, the new gateway drug into Apple’s ecosystem for students and businesses alike.
Agony is a title that I’ve been following ever since it was announced by Madmind Studios through their Kickstarter in 2016. Unfortunately, after finally getting some time to play the game, I’m not as thrilled as I once was with the prospect of going to Hell.
Zero-gravity has always been a gameplay mechanic I enjoyed in sci-fi or space themed titles, ever since playing the original Dead Space back in 2008. Downward Spiral: Horus Station is the latest title that uses a similar zero-gravity mechanic but unlike the original Dead Space, Horus Station uses it as its main method of movement in a rather clever and fitting manner.
Little Nightmares: Complete Edition brings 2017’s horror platformer to the Nintendo Switch. Retaining the game’s original brand of terror, it also brings with it a number of control and technical issues that hold it back from reaching its true potential.
