The original Deus Ex was a groundbreaking game for its time and even after a handful of sequels it still holds a special place for many. We were dismayed to learn that it has already been almost 20 years since it was first released, but at least this blow was softened by the announcement of a new remix album. Even better the album, titled Conspiravision: Deus Ex Remixed, will feature the original composers
Fury Unleashed doesn’t do anything radically different for a platform shooter, but the rogue-lite elements and combo heavy gameplay makes it a blast to play. It’s also very addictive and offers a lot more replay value than typical 2D platform shooters. We would have liked to see more variety when it came to the environments, but the impressive amount of bosses and enemies make up for this. All in all, this is a great game that shouldn’t be missed if you are a fan of the genre.
Gameplay: Fast-paced and very addictive.
Graphics: The comic book art style looks great.
Sound: The music and soundtrack are awesome
Before Sonic The Hedgehog arrived on the scene and stole his thunder Alex Kidd was a pretty big deal during the eighties. At one point the Alex Kidd in Miracle World was built into the Master System console and numerous sequels followed. Unfortunately, things were less glamorous for Alex Kidd after the release of Sonic, and apart from a few cameo appearances in other games, we haven’t seen much of him. This is about to change thanks to Merge games, in conjunction with the developer, Jankenteam
Ask any fantasy fan and they will immediately tell you that Dwarves, in addition to being brave and fearless, prefer making their homes underground. HammerHelm, a game by SuperSixStudios that is currently on Steam Early Access, turns this notion on its head by casting you in the role of a Dwarf that believes his kind could live above ground. Unfortunately, the other Dwarves didn’t take kindly to such rebellious thoughts and promptly banished you. The game opens with your Dwarf finally finding some fertile lands to start a new life in the open air
Muse Dash was one of our favorite games of 2019 on PC, but it has been entertaining mobile users even before that. In fact, June 12th, 2020, will mark the 2nd anniversary of this great rhythm-based game. We are clearly not the only ones who love the game either as it has sold over 1.7 million across all platforms. Part of the reason for this success is the continued support that the game has received in the form of brand new song packs. This trend is set to continue as PeroPeroGames and X.D. Network has announced a 2nd Anniversary content update that will be released on June 12th
We’ve been big fans of D’Avekki Studios ever since they drew us into The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker. Since then they have continued to bring some class to the FMV game genre with titles like The Shapeshifting Detective, and more recently, Dark Nights With Poe and Munro. We were fortunate enough to catch up with the husband and wife team these hits to find out more!
Killing Floor 2 players have definitely been spoiled in regards to free content ever since the game was first launched and we are happy to report that Tripwire Interactive is continuing with this fine tradition. Today sees the release of the “Perilous Plunder” update for the game, which is available for PC via Steam. Console owners are not left out in the cold either as the update is also out for Playstation 4, Playstation 4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X
It’s hard to believe that so much time has already passed since the release of EarthBound, but the game is already celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The game hit North American shores in 1995 as the second title in the “Mother” series and was available for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. To mark the occasion the GameLark music label has released a fun and upbeat tribute to the entire series titled Fuzzy Pickles. The album features nine tracks based on all the fan favorites from the Mother series
The original Gears of War gets a nice visual update with this edition of the game, but everything else remains mostly intact. This means that the game still suffers from the shortcomings of the original and can even feel a bit dated by today’s standards. However, it’s still a great shooter and a good place to jump in if you have never tried the series before.
Gameplay: A little clunky at times, but overall quite fun.
Graphics: The updated visuals are definitely a big step up from the original.
Sound: Sounds just like the original, which is a good thing
