We've been given excellent hardcore platformers, like Super Meat Boy, Celeste, and Spelunky. Now, we have Quest of Vidhuraa which stylizes itself as "Hard Platformer Game? No. Very Hard Platformer Game." But does it belong in the master class of hard platformers?
Shape of the World is a game that 's all about experience. It can be beaten in a couple of hours, but the driving soundtrack, the feeling of exploration, the fact you feel like you don't know what might be around the next corner, it all adds to something that I found incredibly engaging and propulsive.
Mothergunship is a cool FPS rogue-like shooter with a cool mechanic that’s hurt by technical hiccups. There's enough to like, though; gun crafting is fun and creative, the writing has a good sense of humor, and some of the boss fights are both pretty neat and intense.
I wanted the Metro: Exodus demo to wow me, to get me pumped to play the full game when it comes out next year. Instead, I walked away feeling confused and unsatisfied. A lot of the bugs and quirks really soured me on the experience, issues that occurred with a high rate of frequency.
I cannot wait to play Dying Light 2! Based on the presentation, it hits all the right notes for a sequel. It expands on the gameplay mechanics of the first game while deepening the fiction and world building by introducing more humans that fall inside that dark, gray space of morality.
A couple of months back I had the opportunity to review the Plantronics RIG 800LX Wireless Headset, which is easily one of the best gaming headsets on the market today. I simply adored it and recommend it to anyone looking for a wireless headset. Now, I’ve had the opportunity to check out the wired (and less expensive) Plantronics RIG 400LX Gaming Headset. Does it follow its bigger brother or is this a departure for Plantronics? Let’s discuss.
If there was ever a time to upgrade to a 4K monitor, it's now. Almost all new monitors introduced are now 4K and the prices have come down precipitously in the last handful of years. But unlike the television market, the monitor market has been slower to adopt High Dynamic Range (HDR), and so choosing a 4K monitor (with or without HDR) can be a tough proposition. Over the last several weeks I’ve been testing out the latest 4K HDR monitor from BenQ, the EL2870U 28”.
The Shuttle SZ270R9 is a top of the line gaming PC and it doesn't hold back giving you all of the optionality one would want for a long-term investment. This is a fully-featured Gaming PC and there's nothing about it that isn't impressive.
Welcome to another (and possibly last) installment of my play session with The Division! As I wait for matchmaking to do its thing, we perform some more side quests until I get called up to fight through a burning apartment building!
