The Epic of King Noctis Lucis Caelum

Final Fantasy XV

 

Tea: Sencha Grapefruit

 

[Words and comments about the long development of this game] Good, now that we got that out of the way, we can actually focus on the game and not just the history surrounding it. Quite frankly, it does not matter to me how long this game was developed and whether or not it is better/worse than the Versus XIII concept. I feel it is unnecessary and ultimately not justified. For one, Versus XIII was never a fully fleshed out game but only a concept. Second, there is so much more to be said about the game delivered to us that a focus on the game that could have been. With this little disclaimer out of the way, let’s hit the road with our bros and kill some things. Continue reading

Ubisoft, at it again with the disappointment!

Assassin’s Creed (Movie)

Tea: Ginger

My first instinct regarding a video game movie is always to shout “video games cannot be translated into another medium!”, but since I know that this wouldn’t make for an entertaining read and paints me a bit close-minded, I will judge Assassin’s Creed as a movie and whether it holds up and succeeds as such. You can translate a story into another medium, but never an experience, that is just blatant. That being out of the way, let’s take a look at Ubisoft’s attempt at a movie. Continue reading

A Different Kind of Pokémon Experience

Pokémon Moon

 

Tea: Valerian Tea

 

Expect no “Best of 2016” awards any time soon, since I have far too much of that dreaded year 2016 left to make a definite list at this point. One of these titles is Pokémon Moon, the latest entry in the franchise of my childhood. Pokémon games have long been, well I would not say stagnating, but innovating in a very minor degree, it is therefore a welcome and unexpected surprise that Sun and Moon take a surprisingly different approach to the genre of Catching ‘em all. And since I already mentioned that this is one of my favourite series, you can expect a thorough analysis. Let’s take a trip to the far-off islands of Alola. Continue reading

Nier Automata: Now with good gameplay

Nier Automata Demo – Impressions

 

Tea: Lemon Sencha

 

The prospect of a new Nier is already enough to send me over all the moons known to man and a few more with anticipation, but also being developed by Platinum Games is just too much for my little frail body to bear. But then anxiety settled in, since this was simply too good to be true. I felt uncertain whether the Platinum style gameplay could be mixed with the story of Nier and create an effective blend. Additionally, Platinum had a few hiccups with their last games and thus I felt a growing fear of this heart-project of mine failing. Luckily, a demo came out recently to show whether Platinum still has it in regard to stylish fast paced gameplay. Continue reading
