Review: Madden NFL 15

Madden NFL 15 (PS4 [Reviewed], Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360) Developer: EA Tiburon Publisher: EA Sports Genre(s): Football, Sports Released: August 26, 2014 ESRB Rating: E - Everyone I played and reviewed last year's Madden NFL 25 on PS3 when it released. That game later came to PS4 and Xbox One, but as I didn't get a PS4 until May, I didn't experience last year's Madden game on the current gen systems. So the first thing I noticed when getting into a game on Madden NFL 15 was just how much better it looks versus last year's game on PS3. It simply looks amazing, and the team at Tiburon has gone a great job of adding in a ton of detail. They've scanned the majority of team rosters, so at the very least star players are going to look like their real life counterparts (to a degree of course). … [Read more...]

Review: The Last of Us Remastered

The Last of Us Remastered (PS4) Developer: Naughty Dog Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment America Genre(s): Survival, Third Person Shooter Released: July 29, 2014 ESRB Rating: M – Mature The Last of Us was an undeniable hit when it landed a year ago on PS3, both with PS3 owners and critics. The game received perfect scores galore (including from me) and over 200 Game of the Year awards (again, including mine). For me, it was one of the swan songs for the PS3. It was no surprise then earlier this year when The Last of Us Remastered was announced for PS4. After all, the system has been selling very well, and a lot of PS4 owners never owned a PS3. With the updated and more powerful hardware, a remastered or definitive version of 2013's Game of the Year just made a lot of sense. The … [Read more...]

Review: Rogue Legacy

Rogue Legacy (PS4 [Reviewed], PS3, PS Vita, PC) Developer: Cellar Door Games Publisher: Cellar Door Games Genre(s): Roguelike, 2D Platformer Released: July 29, 2014 (PlayStation Systems), June 27, 2013 (PC) ESRB: T - Teen Rogue Legacy was a critical hit when it released on PC a little over a year ago, and today Cellar Door Games have brought their hit title to PS4, PS3, and PS Vita with cross-buy and cross-save. Rogue Legacy is now available on the PlayStation Store for $16.99, and that's a great price since you're getting it for three systems and because the game is superb. I became a fan of the “roguelike,” or in this case “roguelite,” genre last year (I know, way late to the genre party) when Spelunky came to PS3. There's something about the procedurally generated worlds and old … [Read more...]

You begin your journey in The Swapper emerging from an escape pod and boarding the doomed Space Station Theseus. Within minutes, you'll acquire the first of two abilities that you'll need to complete the game; a device that allows you to make up to four clones of yourself. Soon after that, you'll gain the ability to swap between the clones. Yes, … [Read more...]

Review: Unrest

unrest-head

Unrest (PC) Developer: Pyrodactyl Games Publisher: Kiss LTD Genre: Adventure RPG Released: July 23, 2014 ESRB: Not Rated Unrest is an RPG that is vastly different than anything I would usually play. There's no real combat in the game and there are no puzzles to solve. There's no leveling up or experience gained. There's not even one main character to play as. Unrest is set in ancient India during a time of riots and general unrest (hence the name). You'll play as several different characters throughout the game, each broken up into their own chapter(s). You'll move your character through the beautiful hand drawn world and talk to NPC's and do simple quest. The bulk of game is reading and answering questions with some of the best written dialogue choices that I've seen in a game before. … [Read more...]
