Ys Origin Review
As its title suggests, Ys Origin serves as prequel to the long-running Ys JRPG-series. It takes place 700 years prior to the events of the other games, in the world of Ys ruled by two Goddesses Reah and Feena. For many years Ys lived in peace and harmony until suddenly it all changed when an influx of demons arrived in the land.
Battlezone: Combat Commander Review
Battlezone: Combat Commander is a fusion of first-person shooter and real-time strategy gameplay. You not only instruct units to create buildings to pump out new vehicles, you're also on the battlefield yourself, piloting those vehicles and directly engaging with the enemies. In fact, the only time you get a traditional real-time strategy view is when you activate the satellite uplink terminal in specific buildings.
Halo Wars 2 Review
Halo Wars 2 is not without its flaws. It doesn't have the depth of other RTS's, but it does control surprisingly well and multiplayer options are abundant. There may not be much lasting appeal for hardcore players, but it is certainly fun in the moment, especially for console players that aren't too familiar with the genre.
Hitman Episode 1: Paris
Killing hasn't been this fun since Blood Money. Despite the technical issues, Hitman is off to a promising start to the "season". The smooth controls, beautiful visuals, and incredibly detailed level design does a solid job in bringing the world's deadliest assassin to current generation consoles.
Castle Crashers Remastered
Castle Crashers Remastered still manages to keep the charm that made the game so special 7 years ago. The game still falls victim to some of the same flaws, but is so enjoyable to play that those smaller shortcomings are easily overlooked. Whether you're coming back to the game for a second time or you're a new player, this is a game that has something to offer for everyone.
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings
Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings is simply a fun game. There is something here for you whether your looking to find a non licensed baseball game with some depth, or just looking for a quick fun game to pick up every now and then. The lack of online functionality hinders it from reaching its full potential but the humorous tone and simple controls ensure the offline experience is very enjoyable.
Full Bore: The First Dig
Once you get past the odd control timing I think anyone can really enjoy Full Bore. The world feels unique and fresh while the gameplay feels familiar enough to be comfortable, but different enough to feel innovative. While some parts of the game can be frustrating, it always gives you a close by checkpoint to make sure your progress is never truly lost. Besides, once you get into the game and see that little boar banging its head against an unbreakable block you’ll fall in love and want to see where this little boar is going to go.
