Review: Fez (PlayStation Vita)

fez

If you’ve followed the adventures of the developer behind Fez over the past year, it would a viewing on par with a soap drama; well, maybe not but it certainly was dramatic. After a sequel to Fez was announced, eventually a few online spats led to the developer Phil Fish cancelling the game and saying he’s leaving video games. While, nothing has really been said on the matter since, at least Fez has made its way to other platforms since and now the mind-bending platformer has made its way to PlayStation Vita and, after some time with the game, its rightful place.

Review: Towerfall Ascension

Towerfall-2

It was the talk of the Ouya, its saving grace a lot of people said. The insanely tense Towerfall was the only good thing most people had to say about the Ouya upon release saying that it’s the one game that will drive sales. It wasn’t took long before news broke that Towerfall will be coming to other platforms, essentially putting an arrow into the Ouya and diminishing any reason to own the system any more. Now, Towerfall Ascension has come to the PlayStation 4 to ruin friendships with its multiplayer mayhem.

Dead Nation launched on PlayStation 3 in 2014 and eventually made its way to PlayStation 4 earlier this year as an upgraded version of the game titled “Dead Nation Apocalypse Edition” that was mostly visual upgrades with some little extras. For a while now, a PlayStation Vita version has been talked about and now suddenly its available and the results are rather good, even if its possibly the weakest version of the three.

Review: Killzone Shadow Fall – Insurgent Pack

Killzone Shadow Fall has decided to take a different route with how it handles downloadable content. Rather than charge for map packs, Guerrilla Games and Sony have decided to make all the map packs free and instead charge for extras like new weapons, classes, and little extras. However, due to the current state of online multiplayer, the Insurgent Pack isn’t quite up to the potential it could have.

Review: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

Blizzard have been on the receiving end of hate being sent their way ever since Diablo III launched in May 2012. From the always online, to the real money auction house, fans have felt as though Blizzard forgot about what makes Diablo great. To their credit though, they haven’t been ignoring their fans, or their criticisms. Over the past two years, the team have been tweaking everything to make the game it seems fans have wanted. The result of that back and forth is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, the first expansion pack for Diablo III. The package is more than you may expect from an expansion pack and the result may be the Diablo III game you’ve always wanted.

Review: Dead Rising 3 – Episodes from Los Perdidos

Dead-Rising-3-Operation-Broken-Eagle-1

Initial plans for reviewing the Dead Rising 3 DLC was to review each episode at a time. After finishing the first episode in just under an hour, I had very little to write about: It was a couple of missions with a bunch of side-mission collectibles that virtually didn’t change the gameplay form the main game at all. I decided to then take the season pass as a whole, or at least, play through the second episode first; might just be the first episode that was so short. So after playing through the entire season pass, here is that review, and it’ll probably be as short as the entire season.
