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...]

15 Minutes of Game: Rogue Legacy

15 Minutes of Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsbvYONzeXM We're back for the third time this week with another 15 Minutes of Game, this time looking at the superb indie roguelike game Rogue Legacy. I had a few decent runs during this video, and it ends on a high note as I was able to vanquish the first boss, that giant eyeball of doom known as Khidr. I think it took me 37 deaths before I made it and defeated the boss. I'll have a full review of Rogue Legacy coming this week. The game hits PS4, PS3, and PS Vita on Tuesday, July 29th. It is a cross-buy/cross-save title and is available to pre-order now for $16.99 ($13.99 if you're a PS Plus member). It's been on PC for over a year. This video is of the PS4 version. I'll have a separate post going up later today about it, but Rogue Legacy will be the … [Read more...]

The Swapper (PS4 [Reviewed], PS3, PS Vita, PC) Developers: Curve Studios (PlayStation), Facepalm Games (PC) Publishers: Curve Studios Genre(s): 2D Puzzle Platformer Released: August 5, 2014 (PlayStation), May 30, 2013 (PC) ESRB: E - Everyone Facepalm Games released The Swapper to near unanimous praise over a year ago for PC, and thanks to Curve Studios the mind bending puzzler is primed to land on PlayStation's 4, 3, and Vita on August 5th. You begin your journey in The Swapper emerging from an escape pod and boarding the doomed Space Station Theseus.

15 Minutes of Game: Oddworld New ‘n’ Tasty

15 Minutes of Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D79fjs5Dwsc Time for another 15 Minutes of Game, and this time around we are looking at the first 15 minutes of Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, which hits PS4 today and is coming soon to PS3, PC, Xbox One, Wii U, and PS Vita. On the PlayStation systems, New 'n' Tasty is a cross-buy title. For those of you who don't know what New 'n' Tasty is, it is a remastering/remake of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, which is the first game in the Oddworld series and originally released on PSOne back in 1997. The 2.5D platformer has been completely overhauled for the modern era. Unlike the original, there are multiple difficulties and on Easy/Normal there are more checkpoints and health points. Hard is like the original; get hit once and you're dead. I'll have a review posted … [Read more...]

Review: Crimsonland

Crimsonland

Crimsonland (PS4 [Reviewed], PS3, PS Vita, PC) Developer: 10tons Ltd. Publisher: 10tons Ltd. Genre(s): Twin-stick Shooter Released: July 15, 2014 (PlayStation Systems), June 11, 2014 (Steam) ESRB Rating: M – Mature If you own a PlayStation system and are a fan of retro style top down shooters then you're in luck; 10tons have brought their super gory title Crimsonland to PS4/PS3/PS Vita, with cross-buy. The quest mode of Crimsonland takes place through six chapters, each with 10 missions. You're an unnamed space soldier fighting against an onslaught of enemies for no discernible reason other than survival. You aren't getting cut-scenes and a story here; this game is all about the gameplay. On that note, it's a good thing then that the gameplay is strong and kind of addicting in that “one … [Read more...]

Review: MouseCraft

mousecraft

MouseCraft (PS4 [Reviewed], PS3, PS Vita, PC) Developer: Crunching Koalas, Curve Studios Publisher: Curve Studios Genre(s): Puzzle Release Date: July 8, 2014 ESRB Rating: E – Everyone There may be a drought of big release titles on the new gaming consoles, but one thing PS4 isn't lacking is quality indie titles. A couple of these digital games release every month, and July started off hot with the release of MouseCraft from Curve Studios. MouseCraft is a “simple” 2D puzzle game in the vein of something like Lemmings only much more enjoyable in this day and age. You're tasked with helping three mice get past a series of obstacles to get to the cheese. To complete the level, you only need to get one mouse to the cheese. Sounds easy right? In truth it is, but that largely depends on how … [Read more...]

15 Minutes of Game: MouseCraft

15 Minutes of Game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3kz7_Vrj74 This time on 15 Minutes of Game we check out the puzzle indie title from Curve Studios and Crunching Koalas, MouseCraft. In case you can't tell from the video, MouseCraft is a 2D puzzle game that is like Lemmings in that you have to guide three mice to the cheese keeping them safe from death from the numerous traps and enemies around. This is a game that really wasn't on my radar until reading Eric's review of it over at The Warning Sign. He gave it a good score and it seemed like the kind of thing I'd dig since I like puzzle games, and so here we are doing this video feature. Now it should be noted that by the time I recorded this I had already beat all 80 levels perfectly and gotten 100% of trophies, so when you see me messing up on the … [Read more...]

Rogue Legacy Comes to PlayStation Systems on July 29th

rogue-legacy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21glGbFUDbI Good news for all PlayStation owners, the hit indie PC game Rogue Legacy is coming to PlayStation on July 29th. The game will feature cross-buy (buy it once and get it on all three systems; PS4, PS3, and PS Vita) and cross-save so that you can continue your PS4/PS3 save on the go with your PS Vita. As explained by game designer Teddy Lee on the Official PlayStation Blog: For those that don’t know, I should probably explain to you guys what Rogue Legacy is. It’s a rogue-lite game where you must conquer a magical castle which is constantly changing. Every time you die, your children succeed you. Each child has his or her own unique genetic traits, so one child might be a near sighted wizard, and another could be a flatulent ninja. So every play … [Read more...]
