DMC: Devil May Cry Deserved Better – Rebooting Fan’s Hate

DMC: Devil May Cry Deserved Better – Rebooting Fan’s Hate

Fans can be great. They can enhance franchises, allowing creators to get an idea where the next game is heading. They’ll purchase a game without question, supporting it to no end. But what happens when those same fans become overly attached to a franchise in decline? Reboots are nothing new in any media. When a IP has reached its limits, but still holds potential in other areas, a reboot is the logical answer. Devil May Cry was hardly the perfect franchise. The first entry was drenched in early 2000′s slickness and themes. Dante was the coolest guy rocking a emo/anime hair cut in video games. Praised for its silky smooth...

Solid, But Too Familiar – Fortified Review (PC/Xbox One)

*PC Version reviewed* Tower defence games have been a popular staple of the multiplayer market for the last decade or so. Various attempts have been made to spice up the genre, with only a few achieving any degree of success. Fortified is the next game to try its hand at changing things up.

Bright colours wash into cartoon-like character models, resulting in that 50′s campy sci-fi look. Fortified uses its looks to inject a sense of character into a pretty standard concept. Flying saucers and square robotic...

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

A Beautiful Mysterious Modern Classic – Firewatch Review (PC/PS4)

*Review based on PC version*   Narrative video games are nothing all that new these days. These types of games offer experiences that others rarely can. It’s a very risky style, the smallest fault can profoundly effect the entire experience. With this in mind, approaching Campo Santo’s Firewatch was a curious affair. Firewatch wastes no time when it comes to crafting its story. The initial 45 minutes is spent world building, painting the picture for the player to appreciate it. There’s no cold opening that leaves people asking questions, nor is a basic motive made  crystal clear. The only thing that is known, is what led protagonist Henry to working...
