Dark Rage is the Time Waster for this week and Billy can’t help but notice that the game is trying to be a 2D Dark Souls.
With a wintery world, beautiful graphics and horrifying monsters, Fade to Silence could have been one of the most unique survival titles in years. Unfortunately, poor design choices and outright bugs condemn it to being a decidedly less than average adventure.
Gamers should love the HALO book franchise, because it dives deep into the lore and the universe that is only lightly covered by the games. HALO: Renegades does this, while also delivering a compelling sci-fi story that stands on its own.
Console gamers who crave the precision offered by a keyboard and mouse can look no further than the Razer Turret, a newly minted, precision gaming keyboard and mouse designed exclusively for the Xbox One. And all those fancy colored lights are a cool bonus.
Billy is back to mobile gaming this week after his short break away. For his first time back out, he straps on his climbing gear and goes for the summit with a climbing simulation callled Hang Line: Mountain Climber.
In the Outward RPG, you’re not really special. You’re not a hero. And you certainly aren’t the chosen one. Yet you must still venture forth and overcome incredible odds with no handholding. Not every player will make it, but if you like challenges, you might thrive.
Wild is for sure an adult read, though the main plot involves a woman who can take the form of any animal at will. Once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-like creature without a human conscience, which tends to make her relationships difficult.
We take a look at Cannon Arena in beta this week, a tank versus tank combat game that attempts to blend single and multiplayer modes, and do something a little bit different for this classic genre.
The Time Waster this week has Billy taking a break from mobile gaming as he checks out a PC game called Cuboid Keeper with an interesting take on shumps.
Don’t Escape: 4 Days to Survive is an old school style point and click adventure that tries to stay grounded with real world solutions to the game’s many problems, while also presenting a compelling and somewhat epic sci-fi story.
