There are times when you get more than you expected and Titanfall 2 is some similar case for me here. Titanfall 2 is a game developed by Respawn Entertainment and Electronic Arts Inc.. I never played the previous game, because it was more of a multiplayer focused game earlier. And, Titanfall 2 came out and I thought of giving it a try. It had been a great surprise to me the way this game came out. I have been looking for some similar kind of shooter with story.
Note: As of January 11, 2017, Heavy Gear Assault by developer MekTek Studios is in early access on Steam, so it may change significantly from the time of this review.
Remember the time when there were games like Duck Hunt, where you just shoot the flying ducks and had some fun, playing this new Sure Shot HD console had some nostalgic feeling that was brought back to me. Super Happy Fun Fun Inc. is the developer who developed this wonderful console. It has been a long time since I played fun and interactive console, in this period of Virtual Reality, this stands out as something like arcade shooting consoles, still reminding us of the older generation, but giving a flavor of current generation as well.
“A dark adventure about a boy with a prosthetic face and a mysterious past.” That is Steam’s synopsis for Sally Face by developer Steve Gabry, a new 2D side-scrolling episodic game, and much like the game’s first episode itself, it leaves you with more questions than answers. To say that the game is bizarre would be an understatement. The titular Sally Face, or Sal, wears his blue hair in pigtails and wears a prosthetic face mask for an unknown reason. The apartment building he and his father have just moved into may or may not be haunted. One of the neighbors is obsessed with a toy line (one that is clearly intended to represent a certain franchise targeted toward young girls but is infamously successful with men). Its music doesn’t sound “bad,” but it supports the overall tone in that everything feels…off. The art style is unique – very cartoony in a slightly grotesque way. (It makes me think of the YouTube series “Salad Fingers.”) Nearly everything about this game is designed to make you uncomfortable.
The world of 2D pixelated RPGs is a crowded one, primarily thanks to “RPG Maker” and other tools of a similar nature, which allow pretty much anyone with a basic understanding of game development to create their very own titles. The vast majority of these titles go unnoticed by people outside of small forums and blogs, usually because the vast majority of them aren’t very unique, memorable, or good in any way. But every now and then, something special comes along that brings a truly worthwhile experience with it. A little over a year ago, the gaming world saw the release of Undertale, which quickly gained a massive cult following and positive critical reception, becoming the gold standard for this genre. It shouldn’t come as too big a surprise, either. In an age dominated by loud, bombastic AAA releases, gamers seek smaller, more focused, and thoughtful pieces of entertainment as a kind of break from the mainstream. The time couldn’t be more right for the indie RPG.
Heroes & Generals ‘Ihlefeld—Warbirds and Tail Gunners’ is the newest update for the free to play online multiplayer fps franchise Heroes & Generals by Danish game studio Reto-Moto. The update features the addition of a new aerial fighter class—the reconnaissance plane, as well as a revamp of the old aircraft models along with changes and improvements to flight mechanics.
Batman is another great story line developer Telltale is exploring into – and the Season has come to an end with Episode 5. I always have been a great Batman fan, and when this series came out I was quite excited to play this, because Telltale gets into such great story telling that had me excited to play the game as both Batman and Bruce Wayne unlike the Arkham series that just kept the story to Batman. In this game, Bruce Wayne plays a part which makes the decisions important and turns the story around. I would say I was a bit down when I initially played the first episode, but it did improvise a bit from next episode. Please only read further if you are fine with the spoilers.
Another wonder from publisher Daedalic Entertainment after their previous Deponia. This German publisher/developer came up as a sunshine during the end of December. Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is developed by another German developer Mimimi Productions, and published by Daedalic Entertainment. This is an extremely unique game which is now one of my favorites. Shadow Tactics reminds me of Mark of Ninja, which was a similar concept but just one protagonist and 2D stealth based game. This one is a full 3D and strategic camera angle, which gives us access to utilize our moves optimized. Let’s talk about the gameplay.
Below you will find the Riders of Icarus Ranger’s Fury DLC review for PC. Riders of Icarus is developed by Nexon America.
In the new DLC released for Riders of Icarus—Ranger’s Fury, the addition of the ranger hero class as well as a new zone and dungeon is a welcome addition to the Riders of Icarus franchise. The cornerstone of this DLC is of course the new ranger class which specializes in ranged attacks with crossbows and is the first ranged physical damage hero in the game. Although ranged attacks are the main niche for the ranger class, when it comes to close quarters combat the ranger is not limited to ranged attacks and has a variety of melee abilities as well. Kicks, leaps and specific abilities requiring a lance to be equipped allow for rangers to engage in melee combat while mounted and inflict devastating damage. In my experience the ranger class played very smoothly and the combat felt very satisfying. I was worried at first that the ranger would be very squishy and vulnerable to damage accompanied with less mobility compared to an assassin. However the developers have given the ranger a plethora of defensive abilities and damage reduction cooldowns/passives which make mitigating damage much more manageable. In addition, the design of both the class in general and melee abilities offers a nice contrast in gameplay for a primarily ranged class.
Tennis in the Face multiplatform game developer 10tons Ltd. is a casual puzzle game with projectile physics and ragdolls that is very easy to pick and play. The plot is not hard to follow, and it is pretty funny when you encounter it for the first time. The gameplay is also not so complicated, and it reminds me of angry birds, or any other game where the objective is to KO all the enemies on the stage to proceed.
