Mega Man Legacy Collection Review – Back to Basics

MMLC_screens_MM6_TomahawkMan02

Mega Man Legacy Collection brings the first six Mega Man games to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo 3DS (to be released later this year). Digital Eclipse has done an exceptional job with porting these classic NES games to current-gen consoles. Not a pixel is out of place, and the original audio has been recreated with painstaking accuracy. The developer obviously ...

Adam Wolfe, Episode I Review

20161014110139_1

Adam Wolfe is a type of game that we don’t see very often anymore. Hidden object puzzles have been forced out of modern gaming, and the point and click adventure game has fallen out of favor with many modern gamers. It’s sad, really, because there’s a reason these games used to be so popular – they’re a lot of fun. Adam ...

Madden NFL 17 Review

Madden_17_-_Chiefs_Swat_(3)

I’ll be honest with you – I don’t really play a lot of sports games. In fact, Madden NFL 17 is the first football game I’ve spent more than a few hours with since Madden Football 64. To my pleasant surprise, though, I actually enjoyed my time with the game. As you all know, every year comes the day when EA puts out ...

We Happy Few – First Impressions

WHF2

We Happy Few is one of the most anticipated games in recent memory. Trailers and early-access gameplay blew gamers away last year – since PAX East 2015, it’s been near impossible to talk about upcoming games without someone mentioning We Happy Few. Now, players on Xbox One and PC can finally play the game. So that’s what we’ve done! Keep in mind that this ...

Gal*Gun: Double Peace Review

gg2

Gal*Gun: Double Peace is something I never expected to make it to the West. It’s a rail shooter with light dating sim elements. Instead of shooting zombies or soldiers, though, you’ll be aiming for cute anime girls. You’ll have to shoot them with pheromones to keep them off of you, because everybody is suddenly in love with you. All the while, ...

Duelyst Review

2954553-trailer_duelyst_gameplay_20151022

Duelyst is a collectible card game for PC and Mac. Yes, I know that at this point, in 2016, that’s less exciting than it used to be. With TCG games like Hearthstone, Scrolls, Magic: The Gathering Online, and HEX (just to name a few) already on the scene, it’s increasingly harder to make a game that makes an impression. Luckily, though, Duelyst succeeds in many ways. ...
