Yooka-Laylee Review: Retro Duo

Real Talk By: Haggy

Brought to us by Playtonic Games and Team 17, Yooka-Laylee is the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie.  When I say spiritual successor, it might as well be the direct sequel.  It’s made by many of the same individuals.  Is it basically just a modern remastering/touch-up of old games, or do we have something fresh?

A Matter of Trust

Real Talk By: Haggy

There has been issues with trusting Game Developers and Publishers ever since gaming became bigger.  Earlier examples of this could be Atari having little care to the quality control of their early titles.  A more recent example being Ubisoft consistently rushing their products to the market.

My Most Anticipated Indie Games of 2017

Real Talk By: Haggy

Gaming, now more than ever, is becoming a mainstay in all forms of entertainment.  Long gone are the days that gaming was a niche market and longer still are the days of the industry’s success being an uncertainty.  Sure, with some lingering problems having me concerned with the industry’s practice as a whole, it’s still stronger than ever and bringing in more and more profits.  With that, it’s never been easier or more accepted to become a game designer, sure it’s a struggle to get your games out, but many people are trying, and for 2017, here’s what I’m most anticipated to see: Continue reading “My Most Anticipated Indie Games of 2017”

Double Dragon IV Review: It’s From the Past

Real Talk By: Haggy

Oh goodness, this was a challenge and no, not because of the legendary difficulty the  series was known for.  Arc Studios has come back with a new installment to Double Dragon!  Sounds good right, and theoretically since they’ve been making these games since the 80’s you’d expect something magnificent right?  Well.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Review: New and Old

Real Talk By: Haggy

First off, let me start with naming conventions in gaming.  Normally what irks me is when a gaming franchise names their newest adaptations as if it was the first one.  However, Resident Evil/Biohazard is a unique situation as it’s due to localization issues.  Still, when a game is marketed on steam as “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard / Biohazard 7: Resident Evil” It’s a bit of a mouthful.

Total War: Warhammer Review: One Big WAAAGH!-athon

Real Talk By: Haggy

Total War: Warhammer is the latest grand strategy game to come from the Creative Assembly and the Total War team in a long, and sometimes bad, line of games.  However, this one is not only extremely well made, but instead of pulling from historical time periods, this game is based on the Warhammer Fantasy universe of Games Workshop.  With such a different universe with so many wonderful creatures, the team that was fresh off of making Alien: Isolation decided to take on what might have been the most ambitious strategy game yet.  Did they succeed?

Tabletop Review: DOOM: The Board Game

Real Talk By: Haggy

DOOM: The Board Game, is another entry by Fantasy Flight, and it takes place in the DOOM series by Bethesda and Id Software with one player controlling a hoard of Demons while up to 4 other plays play marines trying to accomplish an objective on the modular game board.  The game is a hoot to play, if a bit complex and pricey, but as far as Fantasy Flight is concerned, that is the norm.
