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?
