Perception – Xbox One

Perception is an adventure/horror game in which you play as a blind woman… If that doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what the heck will! Let’s go through a quick checklist before we begin the review: Large creepy vacant house? – Check Doors opening and closing by themselves? – Check Creepy Ghost children? – Check Wait, what’s this, an engaging and well written story? – Check Before I continue, I want to let you know I’m going to leave out a lot of details regarding the story. I truly think that covering gameplay will get you interested enough...

How do YOU XBox?

The Xbox is so much more than a gaming console, but it doesn’t have to be.   For me, my Xbox is my hub, my daily routine. I wake up and I turn on my Xbox. My main page doesn’t feature the last game I have played, it shows me YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, HBO Now and Blu ray player. I’m not saying I don’t game on it, of course I do, but it’s not my main use for the console. That has changed over time.   As the Xbox evolved, so did I. I only ever used my 360...

Riptide GP: Renegade – Xbox One

Wave Race, Wipeout and Hydro Thunder walk into a bar. That Bar is this game. If you are like me, the first thing you thought of when you heard the title of this game was the mobile game. You will be happy to hear that this is the developers first in the series of games to be built from consoles. They ran the gauntlet that is Microsoft’s XPA certification standards to make sure to delivery a high quality game. You jump right into what can best be described as the plot from a Fast and Furious movie. You are...

Subterrain – PS4

MARS! Space Prison! Enter Douglas Quaid……. Oh, nope, no Douglas Quaid here. I think his eyeballs exploded or something. (Look it up you millennials) You are Doctor Albert West, but your cellmates just call you West now. You see, after a “lab accident”, you are to serve a murder sentence in Mars Jail. You start the game in your cell. You haven’t had food rations or have seen a guard for a week. Then all of a sudden a creepy looking guard dude peeks in your cell and basically says, we are moving you out of here. They are...

Rise & Shine Review – Xbox One

Rise & Shine is an adult swim game, so buckle up and prepare for something unique. As described by the developer: “Welcome to Gamearth, a once peaceful planet now threatened by the warmongering Space grunts of Nexgen. In the aftermath of their devastating first strike a child named Rise is forced to take on the sacred gun Shine – and with it the fate of his world.” If you can pick out some of the gaming parodies already, you’re in for a treat! Rise & Shine is littered with game references! You play in a fourth wall shattering role, the...

Darksiders Warmastered Edition – Xbox One

Darksiders Warmastered   I have never played any of the Darksiders games. Not for lack of wanting, to be honest I’m not really sure why I never played them. I had always heard good things about them, especially amongst the PSVG staff. I specifically made sure not to look at any past reviews or gameplay so I would have a fresh take.   Darksiders Warmastered starts the way very few games start, and it’s something that I have always loved in games…….. Ultimate Power! You start the game at the peak of your power, fighting incredibly large and impressive...

Earth’s Dawn – Xbox One

As described by the developer: Earth’s Dawn is looming and the fate of the planet hangs in the balance! Sign up as a member of A.N.T.I. – a squad of super-human soldiers powered by alien technology – and fight to reclaim Earth from the alien invasion known as E.B.E before it’s too late… Packed with super-fast sci-fi action, Earth’s Dawn offers 2D side-scrolling gameplay in a beautiful hand-drawn style. Combat is intuitive, but deceptively deep with combos, finishers and rankings after enemy encounters all adding depth to the game, while RPG-style skill trees, equipment crafting and character evolution open...

Ginger: Beyond the Crystal – Xbox One

Ginger: Beyond the Crystal is described as “an adventure platformer in which you have to rebuild and restore balance to a world devastated by the explosion of a mystical crystal.” Ginger is a platformer that has so much potential to be a good game, but unfortunately due to terrible camera angles and glitchy/repetitive gameplay, Ginger falls short of being average. Story If you can get past the terrible voice acting and poorly written story that greets you at the start of Ginger, you will begin your quest. You are tasked with saving your people after the Crystals that keep...

HoPiKo Review – Xbox One

HoPiKo by Laser Dog is a fast & fun  speed-run platformer that will raise your adrenaline!  With some very addicting chip-tune music, think Mega Man soundtrack-style, which I affectionately call Bitcore (not a thing). The music in the game really motivated me to move through these stages as fast as possible. Let’s start with the story. HoPiKo kicks off its story with children playing on what could best be described as an original Xbox console. They are having a blast until all of the sudden their systems gets a virus! Don’t worry, it’s not of the Red Ring variety,...

First Impressions: Battlefield 1 – Xbox One

I began my adventure early thanks to being a member of EA Access. If you aren’t a member yet, you should be. The value you get for just $30 a year is astounding. The only downside is that it’s only on Xbox. Anyway, that’s not what I am here to talk about. As soon as you boot up Battlefield 1 you get thrown right into the fray. No main menu, no multiplayer nonsense, just a brief history lesson and a chilling and challenging statement. “You are not expected to survive” When I read that I took it as a...

Castles Review – Xbox One

Castles, by Woot Games and Badland games, is a puzzle game: A difficult, unforgivingly challenging, puzzle game. But it doesn’t start off that way. The premise of the game is something you will probably forget soon after you start the game.  It’s not very important to the game play and you won’t really have much time to think about it anyways. It does start with a Castle Crashers-esque animated story which is relatively charming. You are a worker for your King, who has decided he wanted to build the biggest castle in all the land. After he sends you...
