Review: Legrand Legacy

Traditional turn-based JRPGs are nowhere near as prevalent as they were back in the late 90s and early 2000s but that isn’t stopping developer SEMISOFT from making exactly that. Legrand Legacy is a turn-based JRPG inspired game that pays homage to JRPG classics like Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire, Legend of Dragoon, and Suikoden. Utilizing an art style reminiscent of original PlayStation era games, Legrand Legacy seeks to take us back to a time we all thought was gone. Hit the jump to read on! Read On

Review: Ultimate Chicken Horse

Review: Ultimate Chicken Horse

There was a time when I thought to myself, “I want to have fun with my friends and not dedicate my life to ruining theirs.” And then I got Ultimate Chicken Horse. Developed by Clever Endeavor Games, Ultimate Chicken Horse is a game that’s best played with friends, future enemies, or both. Every game starts in a place of joy and excitement, and then rapidly devolves into threats of bodily harm and emotional abuse. Or, as Hasbro calls it, “a normal game of Monopoly”.

Review: Hand of Fate 2

NOTE: This review is written based off of a review code provided by the developer.

From game developer Defiant Development, Hand of Fate 2 puts you at the mercy of the game of life and death. You sit at a table across from the man known as “the dealer” as he walks you through adventures and scenarios of his design. However, as you delve deeper and deeper into the game, you wrestle more control over your own fate while still at the mercy of the cards and the dealer. The dealer is preparing for something, what that something is, could mean something disastrous for you. Hit the jump to read on! Read On

Review: South Park: The Fractured But Whole

There was a time when nobody thought a good South Park game could be made, and then, in 2014, The Stick of Truth was released. After receiving raving reviews and praise for The Stick of TruthSouth Park series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker vowed to never work on a video game again. The development process for the game proved to be much more physically and emotionally taxing than the duo originally expected. So after the release of The Stick of Truth nobody expected to hear about another game in the series. Fast forward to the Ubisoft conference at E3 2015, and lo and behold, we got a trailer for South Park: The Fractured But Whole. After two years, the follow up to The Stick of Truth is here!

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Review: Metroid: Samus Returns

Looking back through the Metroid series, there is one game that stands out as the worst Metroid game in the series. No, not Other M, although a strong case could be made against it. 

Metroid 2: Return of Samus is an odd duck in the franchise; it maintains the gated progression that Metroid games are known for while failing at the environmental story-telling that has become inherent in the series. The biggest complaint about Metroid 2, however, is that the game was stranded on the GameBoy. With that said, Metroid: Samus Returns by Mercury Steam looks to solve the issues that Metroid 2 had, while expanding on a game that a majority of Metroid fans have never played.

Preview: Destiny 2 (PC BETA)

It was a short three days but the PC beta from Destiny 2 has officially ended. And with that, developer Bungie has seemingly done the impossible, make PC gamers legitimately excited for Destiny 2. This isn’t to say PC gamers didn’t want to play the original Destiny, many did and still do. What I am saying is, bringing Destiny to PC was Bungie’s game to lose. Ever since Bungie made the original Halo they’ve more or less stayed away from developing, or even porting, games to PC. With that being said, the Destiny 2 PC beta was near perfect. Hit the jump to read on! Read On
