Vampyr Review

As ubiquitous in popular culture as they can sometimes seem, vampires are seriously underrepresented in videogames, at least as fully realized leading characters. For this reason alone, Vampyr deserves some attention. Happily Life is Strange developer Dontnod has managed to deliver a vampire tale that avoids most of the cliches, camp and gothic melodrama so common to the genre.

Life Is Strange: Before the Storm Episode 3 - Hell Is Empty Review

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm has its moments but on the whole, it just didn’t do enough to capture my attention the way Life Is Strange did. Though easily a tumultuous period in her life, Chloe wasn’t as interesting as she was in the original game.

Life Is Strange: Before The Storm Episode 1: Awake Review

Life Is Strange was an episodic adventure game released in 2015 that took me completely by surprise. It came to me after I had grown weary of the format, popularized by the numerous releases from Telltale Games. Instead of adapting a popular media franchise, DONTNOD’s game told an original story about an eighteen-year-old Maxine Caulfield who, out of the blue, was given the power to control time.

Remember Me

There are a lot of ideas packed into this game but I feel like if they would have cut back on a couple of the concepts to focus more on the story then this could have been a real stand out game. As it is now Remember Me is more appealing when it gets cheaper or if you have absolutely nothing to play. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a soundtrack release but the game itself is pretty forgettable and will only leave a memory of the visual art at best. I trust that Capcom can get some good games out there and Dontnod Entertainment can definitely make a good game, but Remember Me just isn't their best attempt.
