The MangaGamer Winter Sale is still in full swing, but for something a little extra naughty over the festive period they now also have an XXXmas flash sale. Between now and December 26 2014 you can grab some of their nukige titles at a discounted price. Check out the links below for more information about these titles (obviously VERY NSFW!)
Kriophobia claims to be a new take on Survival Horror which, while inspired by the core concepts of the genre, isn’t afraid to pull out a few surprises. The game made it through the Steam Greenlight process in only 13 days, but its Kickstarter campaign could do with a lot more attention. The game will allow players to take control of a geologist named Anna who got herself stuck on an island in northern Russia. Her study of seismic activity brought her to this remote area, but it is a solitude that she has sought out herself. It would appear that Anna is haunted by events from her past which is why she shuns civilization. However, when she falls into a sealed military complex by accident Anna has to save her colleagues while also confronting whatever it is lurking in the dark
Bundle Stars has had some killer bundles before, but this one truly deserves to be called THE Killer Bundle. It features ten high quality titles and best of all most of them has never been bundled before. This means that the game offers incredible value for money and you’ll definitely find something here that will make it worth your while
The storyline in Loren the Amazon Princess really sucked me in and the cast of memorable characters kept me hooked. The turn based combat also turned out to be surprisingly fun and the game has a ton of replay value. Hopefully with the Steam release the game will receive the attention that it deserves and open the flood gates for more Winter Wolves titles.
Gameplay: A very nice fusion of visual novel and role playing.
Graphics: Although there is no animation the artwork is beautiful.
Sound: Good sound effects and some very memorable tunes
Visual novel fans will recall that a while back we reported on Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque almost being ready to ship. In case it doesn’t ring any bells check out the preview HERE for more information. Unfortunately, the game suffered a few delays in production and will now be going out a week later than originally planned. While this means players won’t have the physical copy in their hands yet, JAST USA promised that the download codes for everyone who pre-ordered the package version will be sent out on Monday, the 22nd of December
With games such as Mechs & Mercs: Black Talons from Camel 101 looming on the horizon it would seem that 2015 is going to be another bumper year for gaming. I certainly can’t think of a much better way to kick things off than a real-time strategy game featuring mercenaries and giant mechs. Set to release early in January, Mechs & Mercs aims to offer an extensive campaign mode where players get to take control of the Black Talons mercenary company
It’s easy to hate Stalker for all the things that it does wrong but if you take the time and effort to really get into the game instead of judging it by the standards of other First Person Shooters you will find a deeply engrossing and gripping experience that will keep you coming back for more.
Gameplay: Tough as nails and very unforgiving but stick with it and you will be hooked.
Graphics: Might not be cutting edge but still looks very good.
Sound: Barring some weird voice glitches its all very good
You might be playing as a trio of thieves in The Marvellous Miss Take, but don’t expect shadowy corners and stealth kills. Instead, the game challenges you to get the job done as quickly as possible and without being able to resort to any violent means. A nice selection of gadgets offer some help, but the random guard patrols, abundance of security cameras, and dogs that can track your sent means even the best plans can quickly go awry. It is a challenging title, so expect to spend some time if you want to fully conquer all its missions.
Gameplay: With a lot more action than stealth this game will appeal to players that don’t have the patience to lurk in the shadows while memorizing guard patterns.
Graphics: Colorful, well animated and very charming.
Sound: No voice acting, but the soundtrack fits the action very nicely
We recently checked out Deadstone, the debut title from Timeslip Softworks and awarded it a well-deserved 8/10 in our review. We also got in touch with lead developer, Daithi Mc Hugh, to tell us more about this underrated title and what is next for Timeslip Softworks
There’s no denying that Metrocide is a very hard and frequently frustrating game. Spend enough time with it though and you’ll learn to appreciate the punishing difficulty level. Your first few kills might be sloppy and chaotic, but with practice you’ll be able to take down your marks with precision and stealth. It takes a lot of patience and dedication to get anywhere in this game, but it is quite satisfying when you pull off the perfect kill. Just be aware that the game can become repetitive.
Gameplay: If one hit kills and permadeaths are not your thing then neither will Metrocide.
Graphics: The 8-bit aesthetic takes a while to get used to, but the visuals are not without their charm.
Sound: No real soundtrack, but the ambient audio is very atmospheric
