Chasm: The Rift Review

Oct 14, 2022

While Chasm: The Rift might not be a household name, this is lovely remade version of the original due to the apparent loss of the original source code will get people talking. As a result of that, this takes on a unique form of video game preservation that we don’t see a lot of. Chasm: The Rift was originally developed by Action Forms, and this was the Ukranian developer’s answer to Quake. Playing the 25 year-old game today evokes nostalgia that was never present for me, but holds up surprisingly well and is fairly unique regardless of its influences. Chasm: The Rift is an inventive and quirky first-person shooter that doesn’t overstay its welcome, and is a blast from start to finish.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD Review

Aug 06, 2019

The story of Metal Wolf Chaos is an interesting one. Like how developer FromSoftware wanted to make a mech game more appealing than its Armored Core series, and release it to a wider audience. So they did; but they released a game that took place in the United States, released it on the original Xbox, but was sold only in Japan. This meant you had to acquire not only the game, but a Japanese Xbox to play it, which is rather costly to do. Metal Wolf Chaos XD is an updated re-release that finally makes its way to modern consoles and PC thanks to Devolver Digital and General Arcade with FromSoftware’s help. Having minimal knowledge of the game, and experiencing it for the first time; this is a silly, uncomplicated yet really fun game that’s been worth the wait.
