What's a rapid review you may ask? Or may you're not asking. I'm going to tell you anyway! It's a review of a game that I only spent a short time in and thus a full review isn't prudent. It can either be that I only played a demo, or, the game is a chore to play, for whatever variety of possible reasons, and I had to stopped playing it. With the free games we get with Xbox Live, PS+ and EA Access, etc., I'm able to sample quite a few games I would have otherwise passed up and I felt giving some quick reviews to gamers can help their game purchase decisions a little easier.
This game. Man... this game can generate massive frustration. Tricky Towers is Tetris with physics involved that'll drive you mad. Line up a piece just a little off and you'll topple everything over. It's been a while since a game...
Tricky Towers (PS4)
Obscure Game Review: Bound
I am torn on this game. I played it twice. It was glorious on the first run, but its flaws became more apparent on the second. It is a visual treat – a highly imaginative and creative game – and I really appreciate that about it. However, the story and platforming don’t really deliver. I’ll break it down below.
Strengths: Visuals, Sound, Movement
Bound, a PS4 exclusive indie, is a visually beautiful and stunning game. Visually, it is very strange, very different. Trippy is a good word. I found it very immersive. The music fits nicely and adds to the atmosphere, which I’d describe as relaxed-weird. On my first run, I spent a lot of time just staring at the geometry – watching it undulate, break apart, re-form, contort. It’s hard to convey the visual aspect of Bound. You can’t see in screenshots, because there is no motion, and a...
I've been to San Diego Comic-Con a handful of times, and although Hall H is one of the coolest things to do at SDCC, it takes a lot of sacrifice and commitment to get in. For that reason, I haven't attempted to get into the Hall H panels in years.
For starters, Hall H seats about 6,500 people. It's the largest auditorium at the convention center. It is also the main stage for the biggest TV and movie studio panels. The con typically likes to schedule the movie studio panels for Saturday.
Now, in order to get into Hall H, you need to wait in line to get a wristband. The wristbands are distributed beginning at 9 PM, the evening prior to the day that you want to attend. So for Saturday's panels, I had to be in line for Friday night's wristband distribution.
I thought it would be good enough for me to get in line at 2 PM on Friday. I ended up receiving one of the last thousand or so wristbands.
When I first got in line, I...
Official Gaming Review - From PlayStation to Xbox and back. Journey of an Xbox "fanboy" to a two console owner! (Conclusion)This is the final part of the review of both consoles. It's going to be short as there's not much to say and it's a conclusion that I assumed would be the case.
If I had a choice to buy a multiplatform game for either the Xbox One, or the Playstation 4, which one would I get it for? The answer... It depends! Each console has their pluses and minuses. If the game was a FPS online shooter, I'd get it for the Xbox One. Why, the controller, Elite and regular, and because of Xbox Live. If the game was a single player where controller preference plays little importance, Playstation 4.
If I was able to use the Elite on the Playstation 4, without a workaround, I could see no reason to get a game, other than exclusives, obviously, on the Xbox One... Even with how solid Xbox Live is. The Playstation 4 just has more horsepower and games simply look and perform better. There's no way around it. Even games of the same resolution just look better, to me, on the Playstation 4.
How I want it to...
