STRAFE Review

STRAFE is the is a juxtaposition of anachronistic gameplay and visual nostalgia that work across many┬ádegrees of success. Pixel Titan’s Kickstarter success is a game that reminds you of FPS days gone by, but introduces modern gameplay sensibilities in a roguelike setting to keep the game feeling fresh every time you play. And rather than memorizing patterns, STRAFE becomes a game of survival and strategy in the first-person shooter genre not to be missed.

Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels Review

Forza Horizon is already a series that’s a departure from the simulation and realism that Forza Motorsport delivers. With the Hot Wheels expansion for Forza Horizon 3, this is perhaps biggest departure of gameplay the Forza brand has ever seen. And this is all for the best. This is your childhood revisited in HD splendor, allowing you to drive in fully-realized toys and do things you wouldn’t ever think were possible in a Forza game.

NBA Playgrounds Review

Saber Interactive plays homage to NBA Jam and even a little bit of NBA Street with NBA Playgrounds, and does so with enough changes to the formula to make it interesting, even if the attitude and enthusiasm is a bit subdued. NBA Playgrounds has some erratic difficulty swings during exhibition and tournament modes, but the arcade basketball is fun and easy to pick-up-and-play solo, local, or even online.

Turtle Beach RECON CHAT for XBOX ONE Review

Turtle Beach realizes that the standard chat headset you get with either an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 out-of-the-box, is rather sub-par. They are either fragile plastic, or flimsy earbuds that don’t have the power to output quality audio. Turtle Beach uses that as a baseline to construct something more in-line with what you’re looking for in a chat headset, and delivers light, durable, and quality in an affordable package. Turtle Beach RECON CHAT for XBOX ONE satisfies all of that, and makes you wonder why you’ve settled for less.

Bounty Train Review

Outlaws in the 19th century United States were brutal, dangerous, and ruthless in their crimes. Bounty Train is a game that is historically accurate with some of the events that transpired in this era, but done through simulation with the randomization of a roguelike. Bounty Train is similar in vein of FTL, but with a lot more complexity and depth. If it weren’t for Bounty Train‘s upfront difficulty and seemingly hating the player at every chance it gets, would be much more enjoyable. As it is, Bounty Train is as brutal and ruthless as the outlaws were in the 1800s.

Has-Been Heroes Review

Has-Been Heroes from Frozenbyte is a game that’s difficult from the get-go and has no desire to let up. This for some, can be tolerable. But for many, and like me, put me off from the game only several hours in trying to attempt to find meaningful progress. That aside, the art, music, strategy and tactics involved requires some forward thinking that makes it unique. However, all of the good it does can’t save Has-Been Heroes from the hole it digs for you, from the moment you start a run.

Slayaway Camp Review

The name of Slayaway Camp might be a bit on the nose with what goes on there, but this isn’t a movie, it’s a game – a gory and hilarious game. It features a classic horror movie┬ávisual style in voxel form, and sliding puzzle gameplay which works to its benefit. Slayaway Camp has been out for a while, and deserves a look due to its well-thought out puzzles and atmosphere that are like no other.

Little Nightmares Review

Little Nightmares is a game that was not on my radar, and seemed to come out of nowhere. The game elicits vibes from Inside and Limbo, offering a bow of respect from Tarsier Studios, as they work to carve a path in the adventure horror game with their own name. There’s some great moments of tension within Little Nightmares, but it fails to give you a reason to care or even be scared at the goings on, and gives a rather befuddling ending just as the credits roll.
