We’re back with another Marvel game, howdy, howdy, howdy. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was on sale recently, and I enjoyed the original immensely, so I felt it would be good to give this game a whirl. Instead of playing as Peter Parker, however, you are playing as the newcomer Miles Morales, the hero of Harlem. While the game borrows a fair amount from the previous Spider-Man game, it does bring enough new to make the experience interesting. I beat the main story in about 8 hours; here are my thoughts.Read More
If this weren’t a Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order would be total ass; that’s my hot take. Now that you know my mood as I write this, be ready for some snark. The marketing for Fallen Order says the combat and world take inspiration from Metroid and Dark Souls, but all that means to me is that they’ve gone out of their way to make things really annoying. Besides one amazing moment at the end of the game that I will spoil (sorry), nothing was really exemplary besides the fact you get to use a lightsaber.
The development team at Passtech Games has released a new action roguelite called Ravenswatch in a relatively preliminary state. They put it on Steam Early Access with six characters, a singular level, and a year-one roadmap available at this time. Some people love it; some people are bitching; so it goes. While I don’t typically trust my hard-earned money to an unfinished product (and I never pre-order things either), I thought it would be good to discuss Passtech’s previous game, Curse of the Dead Gods, as an example of this company’s track record so some of ya’ll can calm down.
Dave the Diver is an Early Access combination of Overcooked, Subnautica, and Stardew Valley. You fish by day; you serve sushi by night. While still in Early Access, the game has charming pixel-art graphics, a soothing soundtrack, some really amusing takes on game systems, and a lot of potential. It was such a trip because whenever I thought I had seen it all, it threw something else at me to chuckle about. I played this game for 14 hours at the time of publishing this review; here are my thoughts. Firstly, a big thank you to the MINTROCKET team for…
At first glance, you may assume that Hollow Knight is nothing special. The main character is cute, jumps around, and doesn’t speak any English, so this might as well be a Pokemon for all you know. However, engaging with a 2-dimensional world reveals an astonishing amount of depth that belies its simple mechanics and controls. Originally funded on Kickstarter, this has got to be one of the most successful crowdfunded video games ever, and it deserves high praise.
I went in with minimal expectations and literally only bought Far Cry New Dawn because it was 10 bucks, yet I still feel I got robbed. I’ve beaten Far Cry 2, 3, 4, and 5, so I’d say I’m qualified to judge this game versus the others in the series, and this one is by far the worst. If you stop reading now, I won’t blame you. This is the 2nd most recent addition to the series, and it may have turned me off the franchise in earnest.
Welcome to Part II of my Metro review series, Metro Last Light Redux. Based on a novel series, this Redux is a revamped version of the original Last Light, released in 2013. We join Artyom as he is once again tasked with saving what’s left of the Moscow populace who reside in the subway tunnels post-nuclear apocalypse. For this Metro Last Light Redux review to make sense, there will be some spoilers of the previous game; I recommend you glance at my previous review so you aren’t put out.
It’s time for something a little different, a first-person shooting game set in the subway of Moscow post armageddon. Metro 2033 Redux is the new and improved version of the original Metro 2033 game, which is also based on a novel of the same name by Dmitry Glukhovsky. This series of games is well-renowned as an immersive first-person shooting experience that combines atmospheric dread, a decent storyline, and solid gunplay. I plan to play all games in this series and write about my experience, so stay tuned. I beat this game in 12 hours; here are my thoughts.
It’s that time of year when the next campaign is about to be launched, and Bungie is going big this year. Bungie, the original creator of the Halo series and, more recently, the MMO Destiny 2, has announced a new collection of limited-edition gaming gear celebrating Destiny‘s upcoming expansion, dubbed Lightfall. For those of you who don’t know, Destiny 2 is a Multiplayer online game that is free to play, but to engage in higher levels of content, annual campaigns, and get more cosmetics, players will need to pay cash.
Barely two weeks ago, in case you missed it, my review of Marvel’s Midnight Suns was published. While I strongly encourage you to take a read if you have a moment, Firaxis and 2K have sent over some additional news about the second Marvel’s Midnight Suns DLC (downloadable content) to share.
It’s been three days since a goth witch with a cute haircut pulled you out of a tomb. You hear the Abbey waking up, complete with the usual sounds of bickering, wisecracks, and your Superhero Twitter feed buzzing. You’re eager to get the next few mission to, you know, save the world, but your laundry list of chores grows long. You’ve got to pet the dog, listen to Iron Man be a dick, train in the yard, and figure out where the fire gem was hidden to unlock cosmetics. Endless tasks; that’s the vibe of Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
A wise man once told me that while getting to your destination is nice, the journey there is the true reward in the end. Spoiler: It’s me, I am that wise man. At the core, Desperados III is a Rube Goldberg machine masquerading as a spaghetti western. It’s the video game equivalent of a packed freeway, with you being a jumped-up motorcyclist who has a perpetual hard-on for “shooting the gap.” You’ve got to be fast, accurate, and adaptable, or this one may not be for you. I beat this game in 40 hours; here are my thoughts.
Samsung does many things extremely well, but one of the areas where they really shine is in their monitors and televisions. It’s never a dull moment when Samsung starts refreshing anything with a screen, and they’ve certainly released a slew of exciting monitors at CES 2023!
