Greetings Backloggers! A new month always means new freebies from various game services; to keep pace, I needed to finish three games this week to compensate for April’s Games With Gold offering. Appropriate then, that first up would be another Games With Gold acquisition: 2014 top down brawler Knight Squad.
Looking for some great deals for the Xbox Live Spring Sale in 2017? Well here is your chance thanks to Major Nelson. He has just provided the full list of games you’ll be able to pick up for some great deals. On top of that the list includes this week’s Deals with Gold. Rather and write up a post babbling, let’s dig into this list below! What games will you be buying?
French developer Enigami’s Action-RPG, Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom, is due to release in the middle of April, and to get gamers ready, publisher Focus Home Interactive has today released a new trailer, introducing gamers to the main cast.
Bulletstorm was a game that I hadn’t heard of back in 2011. I had visited this local gaming store and saw the box art for it and had noticed Epic Games was behind it, of which I am a huge fan of the Gears of War series. Why hadn’t I known about this game then? Well it seems the game was only going to cost me about $4, so I bought it, of course. Initially, I didn’t have my expectations too high due...[Read More]
Even though Forza looks incredible on the Scorpio, there was one bit of additional news shared on Eurogamer that I found super interesting. Microsoft is making sure to let people know that this new unit will play everything that is currently playable on Xbox One. Yes, that includes the hundreds of Xbox 360 titles that are backwards compatible. This new machine could be the best way to enjoy those ...[Read More]
Revealed at last year’s E3, the latest console from Xbox was revealed to be dubbed Project Scorpio. This upgrade for the Xbox One platform was shown off in a pretty concept heavy trailer that talked in grandeur, but didn’t really pin down what the console actually was, what it does, or how it does it. Exclusively shared on Eurogamer, we finally have some specifications for the unit, on...[Read More]
In the two weeks since Mass Effect Andromeda launched officially to the world, the reception has been less than ideal for developer Bioware. Sitting at a 71 on Metacritic, it is by no means a bad game, but many claim it does not come close to the grandeur and legend that has become the original trilogy. The bright side of all of this? Bioware and EA have the means and resources to hopefully fix so...[Read More]
In recent years there has been a wave of new games that are preying on the sense of nostalgia. 8-bit graphics, retro difficulty, throwbacks and references to your youth are plentiful. While the indie game scene has had some gems, there hasn’t been a game that truly captures the nostalgic feel of a bygone era. Yooka-Laylee seeks to find its place as the successor to those past games.
Well we all knew a sequel was inevitable for the extremely popular Destiny. It’s funny looking back at its rocky and controversial launch back in 2014. A lot of us, myself included, were severely disappointed with the product we originally received. I heavily emphasize the word “disappointed,” because while I was a little let down, there was no denying we had something pretty special here. I...[Read More]
To this day, I still remember picking up Bulletstorm. I’ll be honest and say the game did not interest me when I first heard about it. Quite frankly, I didn’t even really know much about it until it actually came out. Well one day at this local gaming store I live by, I picked it up for literally $5. After a week or so of playing this balls to the wall action campaign, I thought to myself, “...[Read More]
I got the opportunity to sit down and play Serial Cleaner, developed by Digital Fun and iFun4all, at PAX East. I didn’t know what to expect when I was told the concept by the developers, which is, “Fargo meets Hotline Miami,” but I did know that was enough to intrigue me. Serial Cleaner is a stealth action title in the veins of games like Party Hard, and yes, Hotline Miami. Judging by the title, y...[Read More]
