Watch Dogs: Legion Multiplayer First Impressions

The multiplayer mode for Watch Dogs: Legion is set to release on March 9, but we got a chance to play an early access version of the upcoming mode last month. And we have to say, we were impressed. If you’re waiting eagerly to jump into the game with your friends, read our hands-on impressions to know what you can expect. There isn’t much in terms of the story when it comes to the multiplayer modes from what we’ve seen, but the missions do become a lot more interesting when you have to adjust for your teammates. After all, adding multiple people to a game that’s supposed to be based around stealth will surely lead to some shenanigans. Not only have single-player missions been adapted to suit the co-op, exploring the open world with your squad is a lot of fun too. If...

Review: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin’s Creed has been a fan-favourite franchise across the world for more than a decade. And since it’s introduction about thirteen years ago, we’ve not only seen it evolve with the times, but also re-define the series a number of times. Even after 11 mainline games, Ubisoft has managed to keep things fresh and captivate players, both old and new, with the latest entry in the franchise – Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. With Assassin’s Creed Origins, we saw a departure from the original Assassin’s Creed formula, and Valhalla only continues to push it in a new direction. It improves upon some mechanics introduced in Origins and Odyssey, changes quite a lot of them for the better, and then adds it’s own flavour on top, making the experience feel ...

Observer: System Redux – Review

Anyone that has been into gaming for the past few years clearly knows Observer. As a fantastic dystopian thrilling adventure, the game left us all impressed by its story and aesthetics. There was however, a lot which was left behind, and in that regard Observer: System Redux fulfills every aspect, including in the technical department. But let’s not get ourselves in the optimization just yet, because first I want to assure everyone that no story-related detail was altered or manipulated. System Redux remasters what was already present. This is obviously good, as the story itself was already top-tier, revealing a world where augmented electronics embed in the human body created an easier but also tougher verdict for citizens. We play as Dan Lazarski, an observer, part of a police task force...

GTFO – Review

Make no mistake, this is not a Hardcore-Shooter. This is a Hardcore-Coop-Stealth Game. Just because your characters are running around equipped with guns, does not mean that your run’n’gun shooter skills will be the deciding factor of your success. Quite the opposite actually, because the monsters – called sleepers – react to light and sound. If you run around or shoot, the sound will wake up all monsters in the vicinity and start swarming you. And even if you survive the fight, you will be left with low ammo, maybe badly wounded and not ready for any more fights. Therefore, it is required for you to instead scout, sneak, plan ahead and coordinate as a team to take down enemies with melee attacks strategically while they are still sleeping and unaware of your presen...

Amnesia Rebirth – Review

Amnesia: The Dark Descent undeniably changed the horror genre forever. From the way that players interacted with doors, to the presentation of its insanity mechanic, every element within the title was fresh. It all lent to the high dosage of fear that the game provided at its launch; struggling to swing open a heavy door while being chased only to barely graze it and close it once more right in your own face, cowering in a corner and being afraid to peak at what monstrous enemy is breathing their wet breath in the next hallway, and uncertainty of where the plot would even land you in the end. In the years since its release, the Amnesia series has spawned countless knockoffs, none of which have truly captured the sheer terror that the original was able to traumatize players with. The franch...

Watch Dogs Legion – Review

It’s easier to think of Watch Dogs: Legion simply as the sequel to Watch Dogs 2, but in reality it’s so much more. Not only does it add the next chapter in the story of Watch Dogs, it tries to reimagine and refocus on the very core concepts of the franchise itself. Moving away from the streets of San Fransico, we find ourselves in the heart of London, where we see xenophobia and autocratic surveillance at their extreme, where the govt tasks a private military to “ensure people’s safety” while the latter itself consorts with the criminals for the sole purpose of attaining more power over society. It’s a place ripe for rebellion – and who better to lead it than the beloved hacking group DeadSec? Legion is a brand new original story in Ubisoft’s...

Spinch – Review

Spinch is a vibrant, wacky, and challenging platformer that brings a fresh perspective to the genre through its presentation and gameplay elements. Underneath its rainbow facade hides a competent and satisfying experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome. That said, the latter half of the game will absolutely test your aptitude for running and jumping, so don’t let that cute exterior fool you. Across six different worlds, titular protagonist Spinch must rescue its 12 children who are stranded in four different levels. Retrieving them is somewhat optional; you can find up to three in each level, and the more you have at the end of the world, the better prepared you will be to take on the fifth stage boss fight. There are also bonus stages you can unlock that give you the opportunity to ear...

Paradise Killer – Review

Paradise Killer is what you get if you crossed the tone and stylings of Suda 51’s games, Ace Attorney, a bit of a collectathon platformer, and a whole bunch of dead mall style vaporwave. I first played the demo back during Ludo Narra Con months back and it intrigued me and I’m happy to see that it ended up being one of the best detective games I’ve played alongside the likes of Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, Her Story, and Obra Dinn. Paradise Killer does its own unique style of detective game, with a strong focus on exploration as you travel around the 24th Paradise to find clues that helps you solve the case. The game guides you a bit on potential leads to follow so you have an idea how much you still need to do but it does not hold your hand at all when it comes to interpreting...

Microsoft Flight Simulator – Review

From light planes to wide-body jets, fly highly detailed and accurate aircraft in the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator. Test your piloting skills against the challenges of night flying, real-time atmospheric simulation and live weather in a dynamic and living world. Create your flight plan to anywhere on the planet. Microsoft Flight Simulator includes 20 highly detailed planes with unique flight models and 30 hand-crafted airports. The Good Great flight simulator for those interested in planes and/or the world, with or without flight experience. The graphics are amazing, the planes fly realistically and sound good. Framerates are similar to X-Plane 11, but at much higher quality. The activities (landing challenges, bush trips etcetera) are enjoyable and a great way to learn an...

Dreamscaper – Review

I’ve played quite a number of rogue-lites recently, but Dreamscaper is different than most. By including the social aspects of a Persona game, it’s more story-driven than other games of its genre. But does this unprecedented spin on the genre work, or is it better left untouched? It’s been ten years since it happened. Cassidy hasn’t been able to keep it off her mind since. The tragic moment still lingers in her memories and has led her down a path of loneliness and depression. Seeking a new life, Cassidy moves half-way across the country to Redhaven. The crowded streets are a shift from the quiet hometown of Backhill, and she struggles to fit in with the way of society. The sad news is that life doesn’t always go the way you want it. Instead of pursuing her dr...

Mortal Shell – Review

Over the past few years there has been an explosion in souls-like games that have hit the market. These types of games successfully mix tough difficulty with exploration and action-RPG elements that fans can’t seem to get enough of. Developers Cold Symmetry have created their own indie souls-like title called Mortal Shell  that advertises tough combat, a dark world to explore, bosses, and a pet-able cat. Does this new property deliver a fun, and enjoyable new souls-like experience? Check out our thoughts in the Mortal Shell  review below. What is Mortal Shell? Mortal Shell is the first title out of the 2017 founded indie studio Cold Symmetry with publisher duties being handled by Playstack. In this punishing action-rpg players play as the Foundling, an empty vessel, who is capable of inhab...
