The Legend of Korra: The Video Game Review

The-Legend-of-Korra-post-3_zpsea4250de

The animated Avatar franchise has had a bad history with video game adaptations. Past games that focused on the series have all been shallow beat-‘em ups with little enjoyment other than fan service. The Legend of Korra hopes to right the wrongs of past games in the franchise by being an action packed 3D brawler that can appeal to anyone. more

Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed Review

ATuau

Written by Milo Fisher

Akiba’s Trip is one of the few whacky Japanese games that ten years ago we would of assumed would never make it across seas. But thanks to the team at NIS, the game has been lovingly localized for European audiences. The downside to bringing these strange Japanese RPGs is that they aren’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and Akiba’s Trip may be the hardest game to sell to a mass market. Akiba’s Trip is a free roam RPG that involves running around Japan attacking and stripping vampires.  Yep, it’s one of those games. Read more

One Piece Unlimited World Red Review

One-Piece-Unlimited-World-Red

Written by Milo Fisher

One Piece has been going for over 15 years now, and yet has never managed to find a video game genre that fit it. The series would often borrow from other franchises for its video game adaptations (see One Piece Pirate Warriors 2) but would never dare to be original. One Piece Unlimited World Red takes a bold step for the franchise by being the first original title to grace a home system, and it does so wonderfully. Read more

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Review

jojos-bizarre-adventure-all-star-battle-cover

Trying to talk to people in the west about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is like talking to a brick wall, it’s practically unknown. Meanwhile in Japan, it’s a highly popular manga and anime series that’s been going strong for more than 20 years, seeing multiple video game and movie adaptations. For this review, I’m going to assume that you’ve never heard of the franchise before in your life, and try to explain why this game, along with the series, is worth your time. Read more

Tales of Symphonia HD Review

Words by Milo Fisher

I’ve always held the “Tales of” series close to my heart. From the cheesy writing, to the simplistic yet addictive combat, I love it all. And while I was never fortunate enough to experience the Symphonia games when they were originally released, the glorious teams at Namco Bandi and tri-Crescendo have come together to re-release the two role playing epics in wondrous HD.

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle Demo Impressions

Words by Milo Fisher

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is one of my favourite anime out there. It has whacky characters, bombastic battles, manly posing, and a whole lot of people shouting “JOJO!” and “DIO!” at the top of their lungs. It’s bizarre, and it’s wonderful. So when word came about that the fighting game was coming to the west, I was overjoyed with the thought that more people would experience the sheer joy from the game that I felt watching the anime. After playing a good few hours of the new demo that was just released, all I can say is that I want this game more than ever.

The Lego Movie Game Review

Lego movie

Words by Milo Fisher

After the recent release of the fantastic Lego Movie, expectations for the movie based tie-in game were high. So far all Lego games had been tied to another franchise, so having the game be set in a world that was made to already be Lego was a scary thought. Would the game be able to deliver the same amount of entertainment and comedy as the film while also providing hours of addictive gameplay? Well… Read more

I got the chance to visit Namco Bandai recently to get our hands on Dark Souls II. And after playing the first three hours, I can safely say that it’s just as punishing and rewarding as it’s predecessor, and I rather loved it. Read more

Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z Review

Words By Milo Fisher

Dragon Ball Z is one of the most beloved anime franchises in the western world. The expansive amount of content in the universe just begs to be turned into a video game. Battle of Z is the latest Dragon Ball game to grace our eyes, but is it worth charging you Ki for? Or should you teleport away? Read more

Battlefield 4 patch due out today *Updated with patch notes*

Battlefield 4 next gen

For those BF4 players who have been experiencing multiplayer instability, or who have come across the one-hit kill bug and found it rather bothersome, rejoice, for the end is near.

A developer over on the Battlefield 4 forums had this to say in regards to the situation:

We will be rolling out the Xbox One game update today, starting 10AM UTC / 2AM PDT. Players may experience some downtime as we upgrade our services. Expect patch notes to become available soon.

Hopefully this update fixes the majority of the problems gamers have been experiencing since launch.

 

Update; list of fixes included in patch:

-Fixed three common crashes that could occur during map transitions
-Fixed a common crash that could occur when using the in-game Battlelog in the “end of round” screen
-Fixed two crashes related to destroying vehicles
-Fixed a crash that could occur when the player lost connection to a server
-Fixed a crash that could occur when using the scoreboard
-Fixed a crash that could occur when players were using the voice chat
-Optimized performance when shooting destroyed Levolution objects on some levels
-Removed the blur effect on soldiers that appeared when Commanders were using EMP attacks
-Fixed the “one-hit kill” bug where damage from a single bullet sometimes was applied multiple times. This could lead to firefights where normal rifles sometimes dealt one-shot kills, which is not as designed
-Fixed a memory leak that could lead to crashes at certain points
-Further reduced the probability of getting a corrupt save file in the single player campaign
-Fixed the audio drop outs that could occur when playing on large maps. Typical map affected was Golmud Railway in Conquest with 64 players. Ambient sound would sometimes cut out, like foley sounds from player running, vehicle engine sounds, vehicle movement sounds, and map ambient sounds
-Fixed an issue with going online after resuming your Xbox One from suspended mode
-Fixed some issues with the handling of Xbox One parties
-Made the icons used to signal voice chat status more reliable

adventure-time-dungeon

Adventure Time. Cartoon Network’s hit show about a boy and his dog. With a series with such a well crafted world and many memorable characters, it seems that a game set in the world would be fantastic.

Injustice: Gods Among Us brings Zatanna to the gaming stage as the 6th DLC character

Zatanna1

DC comics are all about superpowers. Flight, strength, speed, etc. One thing that it also has, is a vast amount of magical beings. Lords of chaos and order, magicians, warlocks, witches, sorcerers, gods and demons alike. The DC universe is insanely complicated when discussing only the magic aspect. Injustice is now bringing a bit more of that to the game world. Read more

Martian Manhunter DLC available now

martianmanhunter

One of the biggest hits to any JL fan, the Martian Manhunter was missing from the original roster in Injustice: Gods Among Us. Thankfully, the newest DLC gives us just that. Now, J’onn isn’t exactly an easy character to use. His large amount of abilities can make him a temperamental character to play. He has powers for all ranges, but choosing when and where to use those powers can be tricky. That being said, he does have some pretty damn cool powers. Check out his trailer. Read more
