How the Pokemon Series Can “Evolve”

Is Pokemon X and Y super effective at making significant changes? Pokemon X and Y makes the most stride towards streamlining the series as well as a full redesign of the presentation. Despite all of this, the game still contains flaws that previous entries in the series have. No one likes to run all the way back to the Pokemon center to heal their unconscious monsters. X and Y tease you in the beginning of the game by having a character that is able to heal your Pokemon at any time, while following you through a forest area. There…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 21st – 17th)

Govind will no longer be doing the ‘Out This Week’ series, this is very unfortunate as I enjoyed reading them each Sunday. I hope that everybody will enjoy my version just as much! This week we have a high number of game releases, some I am looking forward to, some I already have and some I have never heard of them.   Mario and Luigi Dream Team  (3DS) 11th August 2013 As a new owner of a 3DS this is a game I will be looking to buy, just as soon as the price drops. Despite loving my 3DS,…

Out This Week: New Releases (July 14th – 20th)

The steam summer sale is on full swing but that doesn’t mean we should forget about the new games(except I almost did forget to write this article). This week brings a reasonable number of games the pick of the week for me is Shin Megami Tensei IV(NOT Persona), although I am not a fan of JRPGs, Persona is the exception, so I’m looking forward to seeing how SMT IV(not gonna bother writing the whole name out) plays. But the fact is, it’s coming out on the 3DS. I’ll have to bug Jake to do a review then.  Releases from…

You have DARK a vampire action RPG, Deadpool a bloody bloody game filled with ….that’s right BLOOD! and to top it of you have Spartacus Legends coming out, to give you a taste of a gladiators life.

Out This Week: New Releases (9th – 15th June)

We’re into the most important week of June as far as I am concerned with The Last of Us coming out on the 14th! Needless to say that The Last of Us is the pick of the week. But it is a bittersweet week as only three games are coming out. Now, I am not complaining, gives me some time to get some much needed backlog work done. Releases from 9th – 15th June Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) 9th June, 2013 I’ve never played an Animal Crossing game, in fact I thought it was a new version of Frogger, except with new…

Project X Zone Demo Impressions

Project X Zone is a bizarre Japanese mash up of some of the most well known, as well as not so well known video game franchises. Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai are the publishers behind this crossover, and they’ve really outdone themselves with how many characters are packed in this game (over 200). Project X Zone takes place on a grid, similar to the Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics games. You control “pair units” which feature a duo of characters that act as a single unit. Once you confront an enemy, you go into Cross Battle Active System.…

Out This Week: New Releases (26th May – 1st June)

Last week Dan had to take over the OutThisWeek edition as I didn’t get any time in front of a computer, so first off I wanna thank him. Looking over at the games coming out this week, I am excited! The pick of the week has to be Grid 2. I have been following the game for ages and it’s finally coming out! The multiplayer system looks pretty awesome, the only drawback I can see is that it’s a codemasters game, not bashing them, but the whole F1 series have left me wanting more, here’s hoping that wont happen…

Out This Week: New Releases (12th – 18th May)

After a very slow week we’re right back on track with a lot of releases coming across all platforms. Usually when I pick a game of the week I’ve not played it yet, but this time around Phoenix Online Studio’s gave me the chance to play the game I was most excited about, Cognintion: An Erica Reed Thriller, Episode 3: The Oracle.  I’ve already played it(about to finish it too!) and It is every bit as good as I had hoped, if not more. The visuals are still as stunning, the story is gripping and very addictive gameplay that…

Strategy and Love – Fire Emblem: Awakening Review

While most gamers know the Fire Emblem series from Roy and Marth’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee, the series has actually been around since the original Famicom. Nintendo finally localized the seventh game in the series in 2003, simply titled: Fire Emblem. Since then, a majority of the games in the Fire Emblem series have been localized outside of Japan. Fire Emblem: Awakening further pushes the series forward for the age old tactics genre by adding a deep relationship system, while adding more streamlined mechanics that make it easier for first time strategy players. All of the Fire…

Out This Week: New Releases (14th – 20th April)

Well well well, you would think that I would have a witty introduction ready considering I had a whole week to prepare, but you would be wrong. Procrastination is an art, and i am its Picaso. Just less, cubical. On to the games, this week is not bad at all, and I actually mean it, not like when I just say that to make you feel all warm and fuzzy in excitement only to ruin it a couple of minutes later. It’s a DLC heavy week so make sure you clean up that HDD. My pick of the week…

Out This Week: New Releases (April 7th – 13th)

A pretty cool week of gaming awaits us this time around with something for everyone. It was kinda hard to pick the ‘Pick of the Week’. In the end I went with Ocean City Racing, it’s a new game, and one that should provide hours and hours of fun being an open world racer. I am excited to see how an Indie developer handles the open world. Releases from 7th – 13th April Halo 4: Castle Map Pack (XBox 360) 8th April, 2013 Not much of a new game, more of a DLC. But it wouldn’t be right to leave this out of…

It’s the April Fool’s week, but don’t worry we’re not going to mess with you, all the games given below are for a fact coming out this week, or are they *dun dun dun!* Seriously they are, I swear! Not many big name games, but certainly a week for a LOT of games! So I’ll try to keep the summaries as brief as possible.

Achievements, Trophies – What Have They Done To Us?!

Achievements, Trophies – Obsession or not? I look back to the times before we had achievements and trophies (For the rest of the article I will just called them ‘points’) and I see gamers playing for fun. There was nothing making them play a certain game except for the love of playing. Playing Goldeneye 24/7 with your friends because you wanted to, nothing to gain but fun. Now take a look at present time, all the games we play have ‘unlockables’ to try and get ‘points’. You will have to complete a certain task such as ‘Complete the game on Hard –…
