The latest adventure starring Link is The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, a sequel to 1991's The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. This new journey features a new iteration of Link, Princess Zelda, the Master Sword and all of the trappings you've come to expect from a Legend of Zelda game, but with several improvements that makes this perhaps the best top-down Zelda game ever released.
I love freebies as much as the next person, but many free to play games are encumbered with advertisements and in-app purchases. Band Star attempts to make beautiful music in a freemium universe, ushering a melody which we might actually want to hear.
Live the code- the code of the Dragon! Double Dragon Trilogy brings with it all of the punching, hopping, grimacing action of the original side-scrolling beat 'em up. Modern gamers have grown hungry for somewhat more sophisticated gameplay than what you'd find in the '80s, so know that your satisfaction with Double Dragon Trilogy may be directly tied to your nostalgia factor, and how radically heinous or un-heinous you are.
About a year and a half ago, Rainbow Moon, a strategy RPG in the style of classic grid based games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea, released on the PS3. It had a… let’s say lukewarm reception. Its story was shallow, its animations were stiff, and its gameplay was overly focused on grinding. It wasn’t without its good points however. The graphics themselves were fun and cartoony and the game could be quite deep once you did the prerequisite grinding. It was enjoyed by enough people to get a re-release on the PS Vita only a couple days ago and it’s quite faithful to its console release. Whether that’s a good or bad thing will depend on how you view the original.
Great, another one of these games. Seriously, this is just the worst. I mean, what does this game think it is? A piece of freaking high art that we are just supposed to admire as though its stupid pixels were hanging in some overpriced modern art gallery? Please. I can't believe how, pretentious this game is. Seriously, it's even called Pretentious Game! What a great big pile of pixely puke. I could go on...
As video games have evolved, so have the puzzles that keep us coming back for more. In a marketplace overflowing with video games and puzzles, a good game needs to present something truly original to keep us hooked. In the case of The Bridge, the developer has crafted something that isn’t entirely original, but is interesting enough to warrant your attention.
"In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war..." As Brother Bloodfist McGunPouch, Lt. Slab Beefsteak, and a band of similarly grimdark soldiers whose names may or may not be made up, you'll investigate an abandoned spaceship and hope to god that those horrendous Genestealers aren't on board. (Spoiler alert: they are.)
Zya is a rather harmless game, urging those who play it to really get in touch with their musical side as they create a number of semi-unique tunes. It's a great way for younger audiences to figure out how bands really work together in order to make a certain style. Unfortunately, in Zya you're automatically prone to paying out of your pocket quite a bit in order to expand your musical library.
Clash of Puppets is a 3D platformer with an unabashed love for B-level horror movies. As we enter the dreams of an average Joe named Charlie, a veritable monster mash appears before our eyes. Vampires, Frankenstein, and even mummies try to snuff out our hero, but with a little guidance Charlie may find his way back to reality. Staying trapped and seduced in this world, however, is a hard habit to break.
While the first-person shooter field has had its biggest stars show up year after year, Guerrilla Games has always used a patient, tempered approach when releasing new entries in the Killzone franchise. Even though it's been around for nearly as long as Microsoft's Halo series, Killzone hasn't quite reached the same stratospheric status among gamers. With its latest entry, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Guerrilla once again revisits the conflict the villainous Helghast bring wherever they go, only this time it's in conjunction with the launch of a new Sony console. Though the choice of exclusives was slim at launch, Killzone: Shadow Fall is a more than worthy way to kick off the PlayStation 4's emergence. Even if it is a bit dull at times.
