Super Hot came out a while ago but before it was officially released, there was a free online demo which really caught my attention. I knew as soon as I built my PC, this would be one the first things I played. The concept is relatively simple to understand but difficult to master. It is a first person shooter where time only moves when you move. After booting up for the first time, you’ll soon find that the game is wrapped in a stylistic shell and mysterious story.
I never owned a PlayStation 1 so I completely missed out on the Crash Bandicoot games and instead was partial to other platformers like Mario on my N64. When the chance to play them on PS4 came up, I was excited to play something that was so beloved in the past and that I only had a small taste of at friend’s houses. Let me tell you one thing. If the remaster is anything like the original, I’m glad I never played the Crash series.
The previously free game Cave Story was released for the first time on a console recently. After much needed convincing from a friend, I decided to pick it up and add another game to my physical switch library. I had actually played it before on PC but quit after it didn’t get its hooks in me. I wanted something to play on the plane for an upcoming trip but I couldn’t wait that long and ended up finishing it the day before. Continue reading “Cave Story + Review (Nintendo Switch)”
This is one of the ones I don’t have enough time or patience to beat. I was cursing too much and decided to put it down and never look back. Flinthook is a combination of Rogue Legacy and banging your head against an unforgiving, space-pirate themed wall. I like rogue-likes. I really do. I put so many hours into Binding of Issac. This one just got under my skin.
I was torn on whether or not to renew my PlayStation Plus subscription because it has been a while since I’d picked up my good ole dualshock 4 controller. Well, May 31st came around and it was my last chance to get Abzu for free so I decided to pull the trigger and renew. Was it worth it? Read below to find out! (Spoilers ahead)
Nintendo is running some tests of their servers before the release any major titles with online service and after Splatoon, their newest fighting game, Arms is up next. I was very on the fence about this game going into the TestPunch. At its essence, it is a 3D fighting game and the gameplay revolves around punching and turning your extendable fist toward your opponent. You can jump, dash, lean, grab, block, and punch with each hand just like a virtual boxing match.
Mario Kart 8 is by far one of the best in the series (in my opinion the best). The unfortunate part of the eighth iteration of the game is that the Wii U has a less than desirable install base. Now that everyone is clamoring to get their hands on a Switch, the deluxe version is selling like hotcakes. With a small library of releases so far, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe brings a well-known party game to a crowd desiring to have something to show off or play on the go.
