Salt and Sanctuary Review

Salt and Sanctuary is 2D Dark Souls. Let’s get that out of the way right off the bat. There’s really no getting around it, Salt and Sanctuary is inspired, immensely, by the Souls series. Although, Salt and Sanctuary has its Ska Studios signature art to stand out in a sea growing of Souls like games. In the end, it’s solid, it’s fun, and it’s a great 2D translation of Souls series.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters Review

The Deadly Tower of Monsters answers the question you all didn’t know you wanted answered, “what if you could play though a movie with director’s commentary in real time?” Well, ACE Team has made that possible with The Deadly Tower of Monsters, a game set around a low budget 50s sci-fi film. Thankfully, unlike most campy low budget films, The Deadly Tower of Monsters is quite good.

Amplitude Review

After a very successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Harmonix has finally delivered on their new version of Amplitude. Unlike it’s plastic instrumented siblings, Amplitude just requires you and a Dualshock 4 to make sweet sweet dance/techno/electronica together (full disclosure I’m no good at naming music genres).

Ed Acosta’s Top 10 Games of 2015

EDGOTY

Having a license plate read “TIHSHO” is pretty cool thing when you read it backwards. What’s also cool, is how many videogames came out in 2015, so picking only 10 games out of entire year of great games is no easy task. Here’s what Ed found to be the best of the year.

Guitar Hero Live Review

When I hear Guitar Hero, I always think back to my college days. I was the only person in my circle of friends who had the game and two of the guitars. People rocked out at my place and I was always asked to bring Guitar Hero to other people’s homes; everyone wanted to play with the controller. It was something new, something strange, but most of all something fun. But for me, as much as the game was fun, it was also quite an experience getting to show people the new guitar controller. It will be a while before something will recapture those same feelings of newness, but Guitar Hero Live comes close.

Halo 5: Guardians Review

In life there are a few things that are absolute. Water is wet, time never stops, and there will be a Halo on an Xbox. Not that this is a bad thing however; Halo has always been Microsoft’s pride and joy on the Xbox consoles and good care is taken on each one. Even the less than stellar games like Spartan Assault or Halo Wars are created with love for the franchise. So it’ll be no surprise when I tell you that 343 have done an exceptional job with Halo 5: Guardians.

TRANSFORMERS: Devastation Review

They did it, they finally did it. After years and years of screaming how much we wanted a good Transformers game, let alone a Generation One game, Hasbro and Activision finally threw us a bone. They gave Platinum Games the duties of design and what was crafted is something truly amazing

Destiny: The Taken King Review

During Destiny’s first year, we’ve seen some ups and downs. People left, then came back to see what’s new, and left again when they felt fulfilled. There were those who scorned the game for not having enough loot and not enough new stuff to do. Then you had people like me who stuck with it through the year and enjoyed playing a game that was just plain fun to shoot aliens. If the Taken King is any indication for Destiny’s second year, then we’re off to an amazing start.

Forza Motorsport 6 Review

Buckle up that 5-point harness you’ve attached to the couch, you know that one your significant other yelled to you about the other day. Slip on those racing gloves you bought on a whim from the local auto parts store and confidently say “Xbox On” because Forza Motorsport 6 has arrived. Those coming off Forza Horizon 2 should not compare Forza Motorsport 6 to that, this game stands on its own as the best Motorsport title in the series

Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings Review

Can you have a great sports title without the pro teams? If this question was asked in the early years of gaming the answer would be yes and games like R.B.I. Baseball and Tecmo Bowl come to mind. Although looking at things these days usually produces a different answer, so it’s rare to see a non licensed sports game let alone a fun to play one. Super Mega Baseball’s is up at bat and there’s already a full count, which way does it go?
