Livelock Review

Looking at Livelock, you might see open-world elements of Alienation, Helldivers, or even Diablo, but that’s not what the game is. Livelock is a much more linear and focused game, the action is relentless, and there’s a constant need to have you smash your way through each level, done with the greatest of ease. And unless you intend to take every character in Livelock to the max level, replayability is a bit lower than expected for this top-down, twin-stick shooter.

Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones Review

Nightmares from the Deep 3: Davy Jones is the conclusion of the Nightmares of the Deep series, with the stakes being raised to new heights, and Davy Jones sinking to new depths in terms of how far he will go to get what we he wants. While it doesn’t go as many places as previous entries, it is the best looking game to date, as well as the best playing, introducing variety at every turn, and adding in extra things to find along the way.

Armello – The Usurpers Hero Pack DLC Review

The Usurpers Hero Pack for Armello adds four new characters: Magna, Elyssia, Ghor, and Sargon to increase the roster from eight to twelve heroes, which adds four more of each clan type. Armello is a game that has a solid roster of characters to play as amongst friends and strangers, but the additions here make them worthwhile but not so much necessary.

HyperX Cloud Revolver Review

Kingston’s HyperX brand has been a prominent force amongst eSports and competitive gaming circles, but it is one of those things where it seems like these products are built for those players. In actuality, it’s for anyone and everyone to buy and use them as well. Sure, they are good for competitions and needing to hear everything to be successful, but the HyperX Cloud Revolver is one headset for all. It would be reductive to classify HyperX’s Cloud Revolver headset as “just a stereo headset”, because its clarity is a cut above what anyone is doing with headsets right now. The only exception is its price tag and lack of portability. This is a gaming headset that works with any device you plug it into, and will unearth sounds you hadn’t heard before.

Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call Review

Following the story of Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, comes Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call, another adventure for Sarah Black to partake in, as her involvement with Davy Jones is far from over. Nightmares from the Deep 2: The Siren’s Call is an improvement not only for the genre but the series that shows that Artifex Mundi doesn’t rely on its laurels, and has made a beautiful-looking game that is rewarding to play.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Review

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a darker game to that of Deus Ex: Human Revolution where fear, hatred, and paranoia of augmented humans has reached new heights whereby segregation has returned, and is a low-point in human history once more. The game carefully dilutes this allegory of modern context into something entertaining, and while there’s not much to really gain from what transpires, it does shed some light on how these fears can lead to racial tension. Despite the lessons being taught here, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has some wonderfully slick gameplay that lets you be loud or stealthy, and lethal or non-lethal. This is where the action becomes the vehicle that carries you through this compelling story of “Naturals” vs “Augs”.

F1 2016 Review

Much like Red Bull during the 2015 season, Codemasters didn’t have as good of an F1 game as they could have, as many features were culled and the experienced suffered from what seemed like a “filler” game as the series shifted from old to new consoles. Though F1 2015 looked and played better than prior entries, it just lacked the longevity the games have been known for. Codemasters seemed to have learned from past mistakes. F1 2016 isn’t perfect, but it is a huge leap forward for the series, the sport, and the players who will get to enjoy a fully-featured FIA Formula One game in years.

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart Review

Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart was released in 2012, and made its way onto Steam in 2014. While not much time has passed even from its initial release, the game’s hand-drawn art style, this game does hold up in terms of art and presentation, but its cutscenes are a bit lacking. It otherwise is a solid game for all ages in 2016.
