Darksiders: Warmastered Edition Review (Xbox One)


Since people are buying Xbox Ones and PlayStation 4s at a decent rate, many publishers are releasing games from previous consoles to give players a second chance on titles many have missed out on. While some have done more to make it worth double-dipping (The Last of Us, Windwaker HD, among others), there are some that feel like no effort was put into the project (Batman: Return to Arkham). Darksiders is a game I missed out on and THQ Nordic feels the same way, as they released the Darksiders Warmastered Edition with better visuals and smoother frame rate. Will these improvements be worth it or should we use the ‘banhammer’ on this remastered game?

Mighty No. 9 Review (Wii U)


When Keiji Inafune announced that he wanted to crowdfund a spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise, the fans let it be known. It became one of the fastest crowdfunded game and backers waited in anticipation, as it seems Capcom has no plans to continue the Mega Man series. Sadly, the progress of the game was met with delays and controversy behind the scenes. The once most hyped game almost became forgotten.

The game was finally released and it was met with mediocre reactions, causing people to think twice about crowdfunding games. Is there something about this game people are overlooking or will this have you crying on prom night?

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX Review (3DS)


What started as software for creating vocaloid (sound generator) from Crypton Future Media, to becoming the company to create a cute blue-haired diva and help resurrect rhythm games (though the popularity in the US died with Guitar Hero and Rock Band), the Project Diva games have become a hit on PlayStation 3, Playstation Vita, and arcades. Only one platform is missing out on the fun; Nintendo. While the boom hit when the Nintendo Wii U was being released, its little brother, the Nintendo 3DS, has been selling well after the price drop. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai was released, but only in Japan and thanks to region locking, importing the game was out of the question. Its sequel Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX (which is mostly an update) would be released the following year, but this time the game would get a worldwide release…two years later. Does Hatsune Miku and company still have what it takes on the 3DS, or does their new look have you go back to the PlayStation version?

Sunset Overdrive Review (Xbox One)


After the Resistance franchise came to an end people were wondering what Insomniac Games was brewing. While fans knew it would be a new IP, many were not expecting the game to be an Xbox One exclusive. When the trailer was shown at E3 2013, it took jabs at the gaming industry for making too many dark shooters. This game lets people know this shooter will have bright colors and breaks the fourth wall by reminding you this is a video game (PG version). Once the gameplay was shown, some were confused about what type of game it was. Everyone agreed that this was a game that had people debating whether to buy an Xbox One. Is Sunset Overdrive a new IP worth milking, or should we just tell Insomniac Games to give us another Ratchet & Clank game?
