Crypt of the Necrodancer LogoRogue-likes are making a comeback to the PC scene, even if they aren’t in the same realm of popularity of the Metroidvania genre. Crypt of the Necrodancer, however, does something a bit different to set it apart from previous and current efforts. However, its steep challenge might turn away most players and keep only the most dedicated gamers.

Finding Teddy 2 Review – Windows PC (Steam)

Posted By Eric Kelly On May 22, 2015 at 11:11 am ADD COMMENTS

Game Logo - Finding Teddy 2While there are plenty of Metroidvania platformers out there, not many of them actually go for more of a Zelda II style. Finding Teddy 2 is such a game. While the game is a fun little action-platformer with a few neat ideas, it falls somewhat short because of two large oversights in its gameplay.

Finding Teddy 2 is the sequel to Finding Teddy, which was actually a point and click adventure game. This time, the game has made a genre switch to action-platformer. Most of the game’s story is told through visuals, leaving everything in-between to the player’s imagination. The game starts when Tara gets done playing a videogame session that ended abruptly. Curious to find out what happened, she heads outside. And for whatever reason, she takes a sword and starts off toward a castle, whereupon her teddy bear is kidnapped by a goblin-like mage monster. With some exploration, Tara finds a magic book, and gets sucked into its world. In these various worlds, you will find cubes that let you play melodies. These melodies will be the main source of communicating with the local lifeforms that can speak only in song. They are also used to find secrets or open doors. Each world also has a dungeon to explore, with new items that help aid your progress through the game, and get to previously inaccessible areas. While that’s par the course for the genre, the use of the cubes reminds me of the Ocarina of Time.

Project Cars LogoProject CARS is a racing simulator from developer Slightly Mad Studios. Since the inception of this studio, they have been completely focused on racers, bringing you such games as Need for Speed: Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed, which were both well received. Since then, they have worked on a couple more games and have just released Project CARS. The title is actually a crowdfunding success story through their very own development portal called World of Mass Development. When backers bought into the game, they were buying access into the development cycle. They were able to offer feedback on builds and drive the game into what is has become today. This has even fed into the very name of the game, CARS, which is an acronym for Community Assisted Racing Simulator. While this is really cool, the more voices, the more chaotic something tends to become. Project CARS is one of the first games to be driven by the community but can the voice of the many steer this one true?

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Review – New Nintendo 3DS

Posted By Eric Kelly On May 6, 2015 at 3:04 pm ADD COMMENTS

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D LogoBack in 2010 the original Xenoblade released in Japan for the Nintendo Wii, and a European version released about a year later as Xenoblade Chronicles. Nintendo of America kind of dragged its foot about a North American release, but thankfully in 2012 they answered the demand for the game, using Nintendo of Europe’s localization. It had a limited release restricted to Gamestop and Nintendo’s online store, but despite all odds, the game sold amazingly well for Nintendo: Enough to warrant NOA’s involvement in the localization for the upcoming Sequel Xenoblade Chronicles X. In the meantime, they are debuting their first title for the New Nintendo 3DS and XL as a port of Xenoblade Chronicles. And while it’s a bit of a visual downgrade, it’s still a terrific game.
