  • Pix the Cat: adventures in the micro-labyrinth ⊟ Take one part...

    Published at Tiny Cartridge 3DS - 3 readers

    Pix the Cat: adventures in the micro-labyrinth ⊟ Take one part Pac-Man: Championship Edition, one part Snake — like, the thing for your old phone — and one part the unimaginable microcosm inside every living creature, and you get Pix the Cat. It’s an arcade maze action game that takes you, much like the Tuck Pendleton machine, ever deeper into Inner Space.

  • Thoughts on NBA 2K15 MyCareer Mode

    pastapadre.com - - 4 readers - MyCareer is the most popular mode in the NBA 2K series and for good reason. Starting in 2K14 it became more of a story mode than a standard career mode and has benefited greatly from that by providing a uniquely compelling experience that is unmatched in the genre. In 2K15 there’s a brand new storyline which will click with some, various improvements and additions made, and so ...
  • Stealth Inc 2 Preview

    GoNintendo - - 2 readers - Below is a quote from a NWR preview of Stealth Inc 2 The biggest difference between this game and the original becomes clear from the moment you hit start. While it retains some of the mission structure found in the first game, you have a bigger, Metroid-esque world that connects one place to another. This set-up is the main focus of the opening, which teaches you the m ...
  • NBA Live 15 Is The Game That Should Have Rebooted The Series

    pastapadre.com - - 6 readers - EA Sports isn’t treating NBA Live 15 like it’s a critical release for the series which desperately needs to establish itself on stable ground and show potential to achieve significant growth in the market within the next few years. In fact they’ve shown little urgency at all and even have basically admitted it’s not a stellar product.
  • Retro DayZ: DoomZ Alpha Impressions

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun - - 2 readers - By Alec Meer on October 21st, 2014 at 1:00 pm. “This is a a remake of DayZ but made in a superior engine in which zombies can’t just walk through walls.” I love that. Puritanism in zombie games. If there was a Mojo magazine for games, “Doom is still the best engine in the world” would be its “the Beatles are still the best band in the world.” I digress.

  • Impressions: Sproggiwood

    … By John Walker on October 29th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. Sproggiwood is a cutesy, silly, top-down turn-based RPG-cum-roguelite. With city building elements. Like buses, eh? I’ve had a good play of it, and can give you some impressions. I’m really enjoying this era we’re in. Having somehow written about videogame toys for the last fifteen years, I…

  • MASSIVE CHALICE: Moderate Impressions

    …, and I don’t have access to the other settings yet. A steady flow of new units is vital, but I haven’t actually found myself hand-wringing because I’ve sent out someone whose DNA makes them a little less accurate, or whose advanced years mean they can’t travel quite so far each turn. Even when I accidentally bred only Hunters for a couple…

    … in the competition’s Career mode but it still seemed as though the bulk of the scoring relied on me. You have more control over what happens, which could be seen as a positive or a negative, as calling for a pass will always get you the ball and pressing the shoot button will get your teammates to shoot. I put up huge numbers in the “Jordan Take Flight…

  • Fantasy Life - impressions

    …These impressions come from Siliconera... I haven’t touched the storyline since completing a quest introducing Doomstones and suggesting that there’s more to Butterfly than being a talking butterfly. Not because it doesn’t captivate me, but because the act of going through these other Lives, assisting people in town with jobs, and gathering…

    …This comes from Siliconera... The thing is, I feel like I’ve spent enough time within Reveria’s city limits. I know I’m only a tailor, but I feel like I need to expand my horizons. Next time, I’m striking out into the world. Direct link Source: Siliconera…

  • I Love What Disney Fantasia Lets Me Do To Music

    … It's been ages since I've exercised this much control over the music in a rhythm game, and I've never felt so sore after doing it. Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved arrived on Xbox One (and 360) yesterday, and its magnificent manipulation of popular and classical music is an excellent excuse to reconnect the Kinect and start wearing clothes around…
