2014

When FTL: Faster Than Light first came out back in 2012, it became a surprise hit due to its simple yet challenging roguelike gameplay. But they weren't done yet as they've just released this Advanced Edition, which adds more features into the already great game. ...

As more indie developers put increasing effort into more action platformers, they've been exploring more themes and mechanics in a genre that is all about flashy moves and adrenaline.

There are quite a few games out there that look very different from most other games, and some of them go on to become classics in their own right. A lot of the others though tend to populate bargain piles for the most part as their distinct aesthetics either wouldn't ...

Most people would think that complicated strategy games that are usually released only for PC will never get made anymore with big companies not being in churning them out, but that's not true at all. We live in a time when titles like Civilization V and Total War: Rome II ...

The thing about games these days is that there are way less limits to imagination, so there have been more titles with novel concepts. There are some that play more like interactive fiction, while others dig into the players' tendencies like in Antichamber. There are some games though that are ...

Kill la Kill (Anime) [Review]

Apr

2014

The weird and wonderful world of anime is something that draws extreme reactions from people, either of admiration or ridicule. It's not easily ignored though, and its influence does seep into a good number of video games. With that in mind, it's worth a look into it with an open ...

Tons of reboots keep coming these days, with some that are good and some that are disappointments. A lot of them though are of titles that most people can't really care less about, so they get some coverage and people move on. Some get mixed reactions, even though the game ...

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes [Review]

Apr

2014

I've adored almost every Metal Gear game that I've played. I even have a soft spot for the NES port of the first game, which is not held in very high regard by most people. The PlayStation classic Metal Gear Solid I think is one of the best games ever ...

Hidden object games have become a dime a dozen these days. There are so many of them, and more often than not, they are remarkably similar to each other, even with their stories and settings. In order to stand out, a hidden object game has to either have remarkable ...

Being able to paint your own picture or write your own story is something that games have always tried to tap into throughout time. It's not just a matter of choice, but also an appeal to one's creativity for coming up with a player's own unique experience. It's an ever-elusive ...

Every once in a while, spin-offs of existing games come up to liven things up and show a twist to what's familiar. However, when that includes something that many agree to be overdone and cliche, then maybe it's best to leave it be. The Yakuza series had Yakuza: Dead Souls, ...

The review for Diablo III around two years ago had the game rated quite highly, although many would think that it doesn't deserve it even with the recent patches and updates that has somehow improved its gameplay as time passed.

Games based in outer space tend to be a bit hit or miss. There has to be a perfect blend of stunning visuals and riveting gameplay to really catch the interest of players who have seen time and time again the space genre, and trying to capture the spirit of ...

Story-driven games in recent years have pushed the boundaries as far as showing video games as a narrative medium and even as an art form. The year 2013 had Gone Home, which garnered mixed reactions from gamers that ranged from overwhelming praise to criticisms of being pretentious and a "walking ...
