Nova-111 LogoHave you always wanted to get into the rogue-like genre, but always have been turned off by the difficulty or base mechanics that are undesirable like leveling and losing all of your stuff? Well today is you lucky day, as Nova-111 is a rogue-lie, but it actually feels more like a puzzler. It’s been stripped of what makes the genre intimidating, while making the game more accessible and enjoyable to casual. The result is a fun little game.

Dengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax Review – PlayStation 3 (Also on PS Vita)

Posted By Michael Leparc On October 8, 2015 at 4:54 pm ADD COMMENTS

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax- Box ShotDengeki Bunko: Fighting Climax is one of those games that was never going to make its way across the pond back in the day. After all, it’s a fighting game primarily targeted at fans of a very specific set of manga/anime characters, with a bit of SEGA nostalgia mixed in to boot as a nod towards its publisher. Normally, the size of the audience here never would have amounted to enough to justify the cost of localization. But fortunately we’re at a moment in gaming where content from Japan flows quite freely thanks to increased interest and reduced costs, so can it capitalize on this growing niche, and does it have a more broad appeal for fans of fighters in general?

Disney Infinity 3.0 Review – PlayStation 4 (Also on all current consoles)

Posted By Jeff Markiewicz On September 24, 2015 at 11:43 am ADD COMMENTS

Disney INFINITY 3.0 LogoDisney Infinity is a game that is better looked at as a service than simply a game. Instead of getting a defined, complete game, Disney Infinity presents a play space to the user and sets them loose to play. If they want more content, they just purchase the physical and digital add-ons. This formula is certainly not new. Skylanders and Amiibos have been tackling different approaches to the same concept for some time now. The difference with Disney Infinity is that instead of interacting with other games or coming packaged as a defined experience, they also let players craft their own journey. Disney Infinity 3.0 brings several new Disney properties into the game including Star Wars and Inside Out. The first two editions have started a solid foundation with a lot of content, can the third continue the success?
