SENRAN KAGURA Bon Appétit! Review – PlayStation Vita

Senrankagurabonapetit logo
Senran Kagura Bon Appetit 2-ingred-1The Senran Kagura franchise has always been known for its fan-service laden imagery paired with hack and slash gameplay, so when you want to make a spin-off, what do you do? Why make a cooking rhythm game with the same level of fan-service of course!

The game has a story to explain its madness. Well actually it doesn’t. Right from the get go it says the game is now a rhythm, because it felt like it. With the introduction out of the way, you can play a straight arcade game version without story bits, or play as a chosen character and learn why they have participated in this cooking battle. Or you can just do free mode, to practice and get better at the songs you will be tapping those directional and face buttons to. While the game has three different difficulty settings, the difficulty varies wildly for every song encountered, which makes for an uneven sense of balance. It’s recommended to play on Easy at first, as that mode provides a much more gradual scaling of difficulty.

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker Logo
WiiU_CaptainToad_scrn01_E3Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker was a bit of a surprise when it was first announced at Nintendo’s digital E3 event earlier this year. Based off a minigame in the popular and wildly successful Super Mario 3D World, it’s been expanded into a disc of its own, albeit at a discounted price. While at first it may seem somewhat of a desperate bid to pad out the Wii U lineup, the end result is a puzzler well worth your time if you really enjoyed that part of last year’s edition of Mario.

Insane Black Friday 2014 Videos

Posted By Justin Lee On November 28, 2014 at 3:47 pm ADD COMMENTS

Usually this time of year during Thanksgiving, the video game news is slow since everyone is off! We present in its place…insane Black Friday 2014 videos from around the world:

Fight over TV in the UK:

Same TV: These people do know that Polaroid went bankrupt and it’s just some low quality TV with the name on it right?

Tesco TV

Walmart in Houston Texas fighting over Tablets and again Tv’s

I think half of those memory cards are bent and broke during the brawl (Action Starts at 1:10)

You know, in Canada most stores hand out tickets to the first “x” amount people in line. There are 10 TV’s? The store hands out 10 tickets. 50 memory cards, the story hand out 50 tickets. This is why you can’t find many brawl videos :)

Tales of Hearts R LogoTales of Hearts R Combat03
Tales of Hearts R brings a traditional JRPG experience to the Playstation Vita with the story of a young hero and his companions facing a world-shaking crisis. Highlighted by an engaging leveling and battle system, the game is very much what you might expect from a Japanese style RPG. But is it something you’ll love? Depends on what you think of JRPGs.

destiny logo smallBeneath the surface of the Moon, a long-forgotten enemy wakes. Invade the Hellmouth. Stop a dark army from invading Earth. Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will be available Tuesday Dec 9th, 2014 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Official Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below Prologue Trailer:

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare - 5Call of Duty is a franchise that has been around for over a decade. The first three Call of Duty games from Infinity Ward did a good job of delivering a dramatic war experience but was largely locked to computers. When Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare came out in 2007, it turned a niche computer franchise into a household name. Every game since has built upon that titles success. And with a new game each year, Infinity Ward definitely could not do it alone. The first to assist on the franchise was Treyarch and now with this title, we have newcomer Sledgehammer Games. Sledgehammer Games was formed by industry veterans who worked on Dead Space in 2009 and first lent a helping hand on Modern Warfare 3. This means that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is the studio’s first game as a lead developer. Therefore not only does Sledgehammer Games have to prove they can handle making a game on their own, they also have to prove they can make a game worthy of Call of Duty.

MotoGP 14 Review – PlayStation 3 (Also on PlayStation 4, Windows PC Xbox 360 and Xbox One)

Posted By Hect Moreno On November 21, 2014 at 4:24 pm Comments Off

MotoGP 14 - 1I’ll be the first to admit, I know nothing about MotoGP. I’ve seen the sport sporadically over the years, I was always fascinated over how they could turn and lean so low near the ground and never completely fall. After doing a little reading I found out that MotoGP is a very popular, worldwide, sport. Much like Formula 1 and it’s lesser cousin NASCAR. There’s a points system, teams and racers, competing to be the best, and with MotoGP 14, you get to experience that on a lesser level than that of the real competitors. But the game isn’t without it’s own high levels of difficulty, and it’s own drama.
