Dutch developers Triangle Studios try their hand at a musically-themed Action-RPG title, taking elements of Diablo and conducting their own variation in a world where musical instruments are powerful weapons operated by unique musicians, but how well has AereA been orchestrated? To start with, it is noted that this title does not feature any introduction to the history of the world and you're dropped smack down in the middle of the beginning of a crisis, of which you will slowly learn. Your first mission: should you choose to accept it, is to visit the Great Maestro Guido, who will eventually ... Read More »
Obsidian Entertainment and Paradox Interactive have announced that their award-winning RPG Pillars of Eternity will be coming to the Xbox One on August 29th. Funded largely by 70 thousand backers and developed with games like Baldur's Gate in mind, the game takes place in the world of Eora, with your character experiencing an awakening of power that allows you to see past lives. Also, people are Hollowborn and being born without souls, and you should really figure out what is the deal with that. Pillars of Eternity has been nominated for and won a number of Best Game/RPG awards since ... Read More »
Portal Knights is one of those games that comes along every now and then and tries to steal the crown from the ultimate sandbox game, Minecraft, whilst taking pointers from Terraria. There isn't much of a story here except for the fact that a 'fracture' had arrived to the world, creating portals between all the islands in the world, and it's up to you, whoever you may be, to travelling to and fro, completing quests and choosing one of these islands to call "home". As much as this is sandbox adventure title, it also focuses heavily on RPG elements to ... Read More »
From developers 10tons; who brought you many puzzle games such as Tennis in the Face and Sparkle, comes Spellspire, a genius (word worth a measly 7 points in Scrabble) mix of RPG and a word game. The game instantly throws you into the action (if you could call it that), with the first level outlining the basics of the game. It's rather quite simple: Make words of three letters or more from the ten available letters in order to eliminate the enemies that are slowly heading towards you, and reach the chest at the end of the level. However, the ... Read More »
Genre combinations are gleaming in abundance with Rogue Stormers. Blending together action, platforming, twin stick shooter, rpg and roguelike elements in a huge mixer. It’s a bit like trying to create a new dish, but have developers Black Forest Games got the right mixture of ingredients to make this a standout title? Roguelike, is classed as a sub-genre of the fabled RPG, which involves levels being randomly generated. And that’s exactly what you’ll get from the seven main levels featured in the game. Each run through offers a different layout to test your wits against a slew of enemies. As ... Read More »
As you may be able to tell from the title, this isn't a HD remaster. This isn't a 'definitive' edition either. It is its own game, well deserved within it's own right, that it modestly has the exact same title as the original. Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is a 2D Platformer/ RPG hybrid game, reworked from the ground up, from the original title in the very late eighties. Every single facet of this title has completely been redesigned and recreated in a gorgeous cartoon style, with vibrant colours and pretty scenery: Think of the original as a sketch ... Read More »
Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom started life out as a manga, having never been released, which then gave the inspiration for the artist to develop a game. In came Kickstarter, reaching its goal and thus development on this title begun. The best way to accurately describe which genre Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom falls under, would be to say it's a huge blend of Action RPG, Adventure, Puzzle and Brawler. At its core, it is an Action RPG, but throw in some Zelda puzzles and combat taken from a fighting game and this is what you get. But it all works perfectly ... Read More »
It's been five years since our adventures with Commander Shephard. For most, it was a disappointing affair; having spending countless amount of hours only to have been delivered an abysmal conclusion to the series. We now have BioWare's next instalment: Mass Effect: Andromeda, set some 600 years later, so how does it fare up to its predecessor? Set in the year 2185, man (and Turian, Asarian, Salarian and Krogan) is boldly going where no man (or Turian, Asarian, Salarian or Krogan) has ever gone before - into a whole new galaxy, thanks to ancient technology discovered on Mars. We see ... Read More »
In the past few years we, as gamers, have made a discovery. It turns out that we really like hard games. It would seem that we all have something of the masochist in us, all you have to do is take a look at the popularity of the now ended Dark Souls series. Develper Deck13 Interactive have taken it upon themselves to produce a brand new IP that will test us to our very limits. Today The Surge is available to pre-order and to pre-download. The Surge is an action RPG that is hard, really hard. Set in a sci-fi ... Read More »
