8-Bit Troll Stage 23: Social Existence

Trolling By: Gremlik The Grump

So get this.  I sleep for a year and chump change, then everything goes nuts.  What is going on? I’m walking down the street to take in this uncanny situation.  Angrily pacing to swipe my neighbor’s latest Amazon package, I see a law enforcement dude.  He tells me to go back inside.  Now that’s not unusual, but then he informs me of this so-called “Stay at Home” order.  Continue reading “8-Bit Troll Stage 23: Social Existence”

Battletoads Real Thoughts

Real Talk By: KJ

Battletoads. It’s back. Years would go by as Microsoft would sit on this treasured IP. Finally, we have been treated to comeback of sorts. A level of care was definitely taken out in gameplay, but sadly it takes a hit when factoring in the shocking change in art-styles. This reminds us at Play Legit of ‘Rise of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, but with less character detail. The most recent Killer Instinct included Rash as a playable guest fighter. This iteration did the IP justice. I was getting excited for the full-on return. Then, E3 2019 happened. As it stands The New Battletoads is something that I’ll still play, but my hype meter has definitely lowered. We were waiting almost 20 years for a true follow up, so i’m hoping the gameplay delivers in a big way. In this aspect of the game possibly it will retain that classic feel, because the appearance is off me. Real Talk.

Shakedown: Hawaii Review: Money Over Mayhem

Real Talk By: KJ

Retro City Rampage was a fun take on the open world genre. Mocking Grand Theft Auto, taking many playful jabs at pop culture. It was considered a success and is available on a vast amount of gaming devices. As expected, its followup Shakedown: Hawaii would be a highly anticipated Indie Release. RCR went for the 8-bit look, now we’re in 16-bit territory. It’s easy to see a lot of time was put into the visuals. Animations, explosions, destruction overall impresses. Pedestrians are more lively. See them regularly taking selfies, working out, adding more life to this well-designed world map. Driving around is a breeze, and controls well. A standout look has been achieved. Music carries the Miami Vice 80’s vibe. Synth-fueled Jams perfect for cruising and engaging in shootouts.

Devil May Cry 5 Review: A Three-Headed Monster

Real Talk By: KJ

The latest mainline Devil May Cry is here over a decade later.  Part 5 continues Dante’s adventures, but mainly Nero’s if we’re being honest.  Capcom has invested a lot in this character, as he’s been upgraded even more from the previous game.  Every Hero needs a Villain.  Blocking our path to victory is Evil Demon Urizen, who seems to be the ultimate baddie.  Can anyone stop this menace?
