It can be tough and unforgiving, but that’s what makes the games so fun and addicting. These games are about learning from your mistakes and improving upon them.

Back in August of 2015, Cyber Rhino Studios released Gryphon Knight Epic on the PC; a really enjoyable 2D shoot ‘em up game that has you traveling through forests, oceans, deserts, jungles, and mountains to rescue your fellow heroes that once helped you, Oliver, save the world from the tyranny of a dragon. Weapons that were hidden in the dragon’s lair now possess these heroes and Oliver has the ability to save them. Having played both the PC version and the newly released console version, it’s easy to see that Gryphon Knight Epic translated over to the consoles very well.

Assault Android Cactus Review (PS4)

AssaultAndroidCactusBox

Assault Android Cactus stars a female cyborg named Cactus, who takes it upon herself to restore order to a civilian aircraft which has gone haywire, along with the high end bots boarding it. As she enters the ship, she meets three other similar cyborgs who also want to get to the bottom of things, which leads to them teaming up. Thus starts the adventure of these four cyborg ladies as they fight to restore the ship to working order before things get really out of hand. I was really excited for this game’s release for the PS4. I loved the emphasis on frantic and stylish combat and I felt this game could be a breath of fresh air in the top-down, twin stick shooter genre. So did this game turn out to be the fun and frantic twin stick shooter I was looking for?

The good folks at Telltale Games are at it again. This time with a three episode Walking Dead miniseries, centered around my personal favorite character, Michonne.

So is the first episode a solid head start, or do they need to go back to the drawing board?

Tales of Zestiria Review (PS4)

TalesofZestiriaBoxArt

How do you begin to talk about a game as big and complex as the Tales series? Tales of Zestiria is the newest game in the JRPG series of twenty years. Much like the Final Fantasy games, each Tales game is its own story with a contained story. In Tales of Zestiria we follow the story of the Shepard as he begins his journey to fight the Lord of Calamity. Sounds easy, if the fate of the world weren’t riding on your shoulders with the choices and decisions that have to be made for the greater good of everyone, including those who oppose each other.

Life Is Strange Episode 4 Review (PS4)

LifeisStrangeBox

The previous episode of Life Is Strange hit many high notes and ended with a shocking cliffhanger, which left me eagerly anticipating the next installment. Right off the heels of the events surrounding the last episode, Max Caulfied is left to deal with the dire consequences of her actions. Using her newly gained time travel powers, she chose to travel back in time to prevent a tragic event from taking place, in hopes of acquiring a more preferable future. While she was successful in preventing the unforeseen accident, another tragedy befell one of her closest friends as a result, which finds her immediately regretting her decision. Pressure is mounting and emotions are at an all time high, as our protagonist not only has to find a way to undo her time travel fiasco, but she also has to find out who is behind the terrible wrongdoings surrounding her school, and figure out the best way to warn everyone of the eventual climate disaster heading straight to her city. So did this episode build on the solid one before it, or is this an unfortunate misstep?
