Assassin’s Creed Chronicles Russia can be fun at times, but many of those times were wrought with frustration. There were plenty of things I liked about the game, but not enough to recommend except to those that love that 2D/2.5D style of a Shadow Complex or Counterspy.
Omnibus looks to release in the first half of 2016 on PC and apparently the Atari Jaguar. With all the zany antics in the game, I’m definitely interested to see where Omnibus goes.
Elite: Dangerous is out now on PC, Mac and Xbox One with expansions and patches and new versions constantly releasing.
I was really impressed with Stories: The Path of Destinies. Everything about this game, from the mechanics to the aesthetic to the gameplay all looks and feels extremely polished. After seeing it on PAX South, it’s a definite on my radar. Stories will release on Steam and the PlayStation 4 in early 2016.
Resident Evil Umbrella Corps is a third-person shooter set in the time after Resident Evil 6. The Umbrella Corporation is gone, but the zombies the organization has left behind are not.
Moving Hazard doesn’t seem all that different from any other military shooter on the market, but once you begin playing, the nuances of the game become evident.
The controls wear fairly spot-on in the levels I was playing. The marble felt as if it had weight and physics to it as the marbles in Marble Madness did back in 1984. I almost wrote that the controls felt a little more forgiving than Marble Madness, but in truth, it may be a little closer to reality.
Livelock appears to be coming along nicely. I will definitely be keeping my ear to the ground on this one as I am looking forward to finding out more about these characters. The game will release in 2016 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Okhlos is shaping up nicely. I look forward to seeing where these 2 guys take the final product. The weird, built-in sense of nostalgia and real time strategy game play elements kept me on my toes.
In Enter the Gungeon, you are one of four characters on a quest to reach the ultimate treasure: a gun that can kill the past. With greed as your motivator, you enter the dungeon (or gungeon) and fight a myriad of delightfully lethal creatures.
