Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory combines two simultaneous releases from Sony platforms last year, telling two sides of the same battle: a princess attempting to return her kingdom to splendor and the rebel who opposes her. These two titles get more added to them on the Switch, creating the definitive edition of both games.
Omensight is a game that has the player talking to animals, offering amber to the Tree of Life and meditating. It would be pretty chill, except for the giant serpent slithering forth from the Void trying to end the world. In reality, Omensight’s world is filled to the brim with betrayal and political intrigue where your character, the Harbinger, fights her way through active battlefields and prison riots alike. Basically, it’s a game that contains pretty much everything I love about the medium.
It is without a doubt that throughout American history, Henry David Thoreau is one of the most recognizable names in classic novels alongside George Orwell, Mark Twain, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Thoreau's Walden, which dates way back to the 1850s, seems like one of the last things you'd expect to be adapted into a video game, yet the small team at USC Games managed to pull off a decent game that gives the book more depth, serving almost as an educational and interactive companion to making Walden a more personal and relatable experience.
Who sang the song that calmed the seas? Heroine Anthem ZERO is a stunning game that has lots of great qualities about it and gets you interested from the get-go of its adventure thanks to its captivating art and score that caresses your ears and eyes and makes you feel warm all around, and while the adventure at its core is a delight, the mechanics and gameplay of Heroine Anthem ZERO unfortunately diminish the experience and ultimately leaves more frustration than pleasure.
Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux is a remake of a 2010 original DS title that was originally going to officially be Shin Megami Tensei IV. Ryan at The Gamer’s Lounge looks in on the remake and sees if the bonus content is worth your time.
Indie studio Wazen’s Assault Spy was released into early access on Steam earlier in May, and it’s already showing the signs of being a pretty good beat em up. In the currently available story, you play as corporate spy Asaru, who fights with a briefcase and is constantly hindered by his semi-useless partner, Kanoko. You spend much of your time in the game dodging the laser sights of robots, dashing through semi-destroyed offices and punching your enemies in the face. It’s a lot of silly fun.
de Blob 2 is a sequel to 2008’s de Blob on the Wii. The funky paint filled platformer is back, but the question is how good is the game? Do the new features make it stand out enough from an already pretty crowded marketplace?
Dragon’s Crown returns in glorious HD with a new orchestral soundtrack five years after it’s original release on the PS3. With a PS4Pro and 4K TV, the game can look and sound like you’ve never experienced it. Ryan Johnson at The Gamer’s Lounge shows you the differences and helps you decide whether this classic is worth the double-dip.
