Axiom Verge (PC) Review

Axiom Verge (PC) Box (http://www.axiomverge.com/) Those familiar with the great Joss Whedon are familiar with his recent work on the Avenger’s movies for Marvel Studios as writer, producer, and director if his films. Tom Happ, much in the vein of the aforementioned film giant, is the sole developer, artist, and musician of Axiom Verge, the result of nearly 5 long years of determined work (an incredible feat considering Happ commitment to working full time). Though not restricted by the technical limitations of the era, Axiom Verge draws heavily from the NES/SNES era of gaming, and, at first glance, could be mistaken for a Contra/Metroid reimagining. The sounds, layouts, and graphics harken back to an era where games were simple, yet relentlessly challenging, and while the graphics are absolutely gorgeous, the gameplay what separates this gem from many retro indie titles flooding the market in recent years.



 
Chroma Squad (PC) Review

Chroma Squad (PC) Box (http://www.chromasquad.com/) Have you ever been watching Power Rangers and thought, “Gee a tactical RPG about Power Rangers sure would be a swell game!” ….No? Really? Never thought about it? Well aren’t you glad the folks over at Behold Studios did all that thinking for you then? Chroma Squad is just that type of game, a tactical RPG that follows five stunt actors who quit their jobs to start their own Power Rangers based TV Show! It’s up to you, the player, to make sure their show is profitable, popular, and that your characters are properly equipped to handle the enemies at hand. I never would have imagined this mash-up would ever work, but it does, and Chroma Squad is the most fun I’ve had with a tactical RPG in a long time.

 
Killing Floor 2 (PC) Beta and Early Access First Impressions
E-Gamerz
Killing Floor 2 (PC) Box (http://www.killingfloor2.com/) Killing Floor set the stage for cooperative first person shooters when it released as a mod nearly 10 years ago, and again in its retail incarnation in 2009. The series excels in its formula, pitting squads of players against increasingly difficult hordes of zombies, leading up to climactic boss battles. Each wave is divided into rounds, where players can use their currency to purchase new guns, armor, ammo, and even trade with other players.

 
Westerado Double Barreled

 Westerado: Double Barreled (PC) Box (http://store.steampowered.com/app/275200/) Adult Swim Games decided to try taking the reins of an open world western game, which is a bold move considering the masterpiece that was Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption. However, Adult Swim’s pixilated western sandbox is exceptionally fun and is sure to get a laugh out of you more than once. Westerado: Double Barreled is the pixel western game you always wanted, but never thought you would actually get, so thank you Adult Swims games for going where many developers wouldn’t dare.

Written by Josh Walters   
Dark Souls 2 Scholars of The First Sin Box Art (http://www.darksoulsii.com/us/index.php) The Souls series exists as one of my favorite current franchises, so when the opportunity came to review the current gen port, including all of the DLC released last year and the improvements made with the newest update 1.10, I couldn’t resist staking my claim on the title. This review will mostly cover the improvements and upgrades made over last gen, and provide insight into the newest features available with Scholar of the First Sin.
 
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4, XB1) Review
E-Gamerz
Written by Josh Walters   
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD (PS4, XB1) Box Art (http://finalfantasytype0.com/) Rated T by ESRB Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, an action-RPG released last month for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles, exists as a stark departure from what Final Fantasy fans have come to expect from the series only in regards to the gameplay. Fans can still expect to find series tropes such as moogles and chocobos, a brilliant soundtrack, and a somewhat overzealous storyline, but this entry trades in the crusty turn-based combat of games past for sleeker, fast-paced combat that relies as much on reflexes as it does careful strategy.
 
Insight Editions at Emerald City Comic-Con

Insight Editions (http://www.insighteditions.com/) Another year, another exciting adventure at Emerald City Comic-Con here in Seattle! While I was at Comic-con this year, I had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful folks who work for Insight Editions, a San Francisco based publisher that focus on illustrated books on photography, music, popular culture, and most importantly…video games. While visiting their booth at ECCC (Emerald City Comic-Con for short), I got to see many of the books in their catalog, and was kindly given two video game based books to write about.
 
Resident Evil Revelations 2 (PS4, Vita, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC) Review

 Resident Evil Revelations 2 (PS4, Vita, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC) Box Art (https://www.residentevil.net/en/) Rated M by ESRB Going into Revelations 2, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, the first entry had been a 3Ds title that had a very good port to PC, and this latest entry in the series was going to be done in an episodic format. I received that complete season of Revelations 2 for review on PS4, and what greatly surprised at how enjoyable this game had turned out to be. Not only did it feel like a solid entry in the Resident Evil franchise, but it offered many fun game modes, and felt approachable to anyone, thanks to the varying difficulty levels and easy to follow gameplay mechanics. Fans of the series won’t find a new masterpiece, but they surely won’t be disappointed either.
