XCOM Enemy Unknown/Within is a top-down turn-based squad combat reboot of the X-COM franchise which was popular years ago on the PC. Aliens are invading our world and it’s up to you to command an arsenal of soldiers and military strategy to fight them back and take the war back onto their turf! XCOM Enemy Within has added a ton of new content into the game — and not as DLC or add-ons but morphed directly into the story/campaign.
Skylanders Swap Force Jolly Bumble Blast figure is out in stores now — he is a holiday variant to the standard Bumble Blast figure which currently comes with the Fiery Forge pack. Jolly Bumble Blast’s abilities are the same as standard Bumble Blast – however he now has a Christmas-look to him with the change in colors. Jolly Bumble Blast also unlocks the ‘Jolly Hat’ which can be used on other Skylanders — as far as we know using Jolly Bumble Blast is the only way to unlock the ‘Jolly Hat’. Jolly Bumble Blast for Skylanders Swap Force retails for
Very few franchises tap into a player’s simple joy centers the way Peggle does. So when I saw Peggle 2 was releasing on the Xbox One, this was a day one purchase for me. Peggle’s beautiful simplicity is captured once again in its sequel. I will thoroughly admit that it feels odd to praise a game for not trying too hard to innovate as the Peggle 2 formula delivers exactly what you’re looking for – more Peggle. It is all there – from the orange pegs leading to multipliers to the cavalcade of lights and sound generated by completing the
Saint Seiya Brave Soldiers is something else. When first jumping into the game I went in with little knowledge as to what I was getting myself into, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Featuring heavy anime tones and beats paired with a solid fighting system, the game is a decent foray into the world of Japanese fighters and will give a solid amount of enjoyment if you’re deep into either the genre or just in love with solid anime tales. My review for this game comes from someone not entirely deep into fighting games and the genre. I’ve played
There is always a lot of scruitiny when crossing over from one generation of consoles to another, from graphical fidelity to frames per second to pixel counts. This is especially true if you are a company’s flagship title as Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag is for Ubisoft. With the increased power under the hoods of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, Ubisoft kicked the tires and lit the fires on making the Assassin’s Creed IV experience the better choice over its last-gen brethren. In terms of game play, I did not experience any noticeable differences between the Xbox 360
Disney Infinity released another wave of figures just before Thanksgiving leading into the holiday season for shopping and gift giving. The new batch of figures are Ralph and Vanellope from the film Wreck-It Ralph, Anna and Elsa (2 pack) from the film Frozen and Rapunzel from the film Tangled. The Frozen 2-pack coincided with the release of the film and also includes two Infinity Discs to change the landscape in Toy Box mode. Out of the newest batch of figures our favorite has to go to Vanellope who not only is the best and most detailed toy of the bunch
The Call of Duty series hasn’t always been known as a technical showpiece on consoles but it has hit the magical 60 frames per second number that fuels its hectic fast-paced gameplay very well, so when changing generations people began to wonder where the series could go with a bit more power to use. Call of Duty Ghosts on the next generation of consoles is a slightly cleaner experience, but that’s about it. A lot of games making the jump to next-gen are using the 60 fps footnote as the big thing that they are doing to showcase the new
You know what? I really don’t know why you should explore the dungeon either. Easy jab aside, I was really looking forward to the release of Adventure Time: Explore The Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! ever since I got the opportunity to play the game at PAX Prime 2013. WayForward Technologies and D3 Publisher’s licensed dungeon crawler is little more than a hack-and-slash occurrence whose novelty wears off rather quickly. I call it an occurrence because it takes a bit more action for a game to qualify as an adventure in my eyes. As a loyal fan of the source
We enjoyed Frozen — tons of fun and stunning visuals! Kristen Bell did an outstanding job dramatically as Anna but it was Olaf (played by Josh Gad) the snowman who stole the show for comedy relief. Frozen in 3D works well because snow and ice just automatically lends itself to this effect. The movie was heavy on songs and sometimes felt a bit more ‘theatrical’ then it needed to be — sort of like an animated opera.
