Review: Life is Strange

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 9

I’m an old-school gamer with limited time for video games.  When I do find some time, I prefer NES games, SNES games and 10-20 year old strategy/rpg games.  So when I can’t stop playing a new(ish), story-driven game about a Continue reading “Review: Life is Strange”

Re-mastered Ultimate Alliance Panned as “Worst Port of 2016”

Marvel Ultimate Alliance was one of the first Xbox 360 games I really loved. The local co-op was some of the best I have ever enjoyed. The second installment had much better graphics, but I felt the gameplay got a lot worse.

Activision recently revealed that both games would be released for current gen systems for $40, or bundled together for $60. In this golden age of HD remakes, I was falling all over myself trying to insert my credit card directly into my PS4 when the internet saved me from practically throwing my cash out the window.

Taking Alice O’Conners advice in her article on Rock Paper Shotgun, I took a look at the steam reviews. Apparently the games are buggy as hell, and perform worse than the previous versions. VG 24/7 went on to call the games the worst port of 2016.

Total Biscuit, the Cynical Brit spent 14 minutes discussing the games’ issues:

It’s sad to hear the remakes are broken. Would you still buy them if they were $10? Share your thoughts via email or twitter!

Review: Roughly a Year of My Life with Dragon Age: Inquisition

Tom Awesome’s review score: 8.75

An extended Memorial Day weekend with my wife turned out to be an excellent time to catch up on some gaming and reading. I finally finished my long, happy romp through Dragon Age: Inquisition by Bioware. After being nearly the only game I played for roughly a year I left with a decidedly humdrum feeling.
