PizzaBot: Reheated is a two-dimensional fixed shooter game in which the player controls a laser cannon firing slice of Pizza and is the newest mobile game from teenaged developer Harry Moran. Reheated is the sequel to the original PizzaBot and PizzaBot: Seasonings. Reheated improves on the originals vastly adding in an abundance of new features, yet it still seems unable to crack down on some of the initial problems that plagues much of its ilk.
The first level of Hitman is a truly extraordinary example of teaching the player through just that, play. It frames itself as a training mission for the titular hitman, Agent 47, taking place inside some sort of secret base in a mountain, which presumably houses the rest of the shadowy organisation you’re working for. What they choose to do in the level is to essentially make a very small version of the sort of levels you’ll be experiencing later, condensing everything you can do mechanically in the game into one yacht-sized playground.
Nier is a game that I think is great in spite of itself. The combat is unremarkable, it poses little to no challenge, it’s horrendously balanced. I can ignore all of these though, because what Yoko Taro did with this game’s world and story is second to none in the space.
Sonic’s Bizarre CD Quality Adven- oh crap I used that joke already
Sonic CD is a rather strange game, and a even stranger pick for my first review of a Sonic game. It was released in 1993 for the Sega CD add on for the Sega Genesis. For the 3 of you who don’t know, the Sega CD add on allowed games to have the benefits of being released on a CD format. Unfortunately back then this just meant pumping the games full of shit FMVs, making a bunch of ports and maybe making a better soundtrack thanks to the CD quality audio. Simply put the system flopped, though not nearly as badly as the Sega 32X. Sonic CD, Night Trap and Snatcher are the only games considered “worth having” out of the system’s library. Of course that is if you have the money to pay for a expensive add on for a Sega Genesis which you need to already have to begin with.
For the longest time I was curious of Sonic CD (more…)
With no Assassin’s Creed game this year (for once), I’ve been trying to catch up on some of the expanded universe stuff. Here’s one I’m particularly fond of: Assassin’s Creed: The Fall!
Assassin’s Creed: The Fall explores a new chapter in the Assassin-Templar conflict. It tells the parallel stories of Daniel Cross, a deeply troubled young man in the late nineties, and Nikolai Orelov, his Assassin ancestor from Tsarist Russia. Telling a story that spans decades where empires fall and friendships shatter, it tells a self-contained story that sows some majors seeds for the future of the series.

In a vacuum, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle is a game with almost no merit whatsoever. The 2014 fighting game by CyberConnect2 (developer of the great Asura’s Wrath and not much else good) was released in Japan to fervent hype, receiving a 40/40 from Famitsu (Putting it alongside such greats as Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Nintendogs) and going on to become the best selling game of the year. However I feel this was a mistake on their part, as the game is a steaming pile of horseshit, no matter how much a fan of Hirohiko Araki’s 30 year spanning saga you are.
–And now for something completely different-
Now I’m all for Sonic Team going out of their way to make titles that don’t feature the character they’re named for but there is a reason why nobody really talks about them. (more…)
If you like video game music there’s a good chance you’re familiar with GilvaSunner, a man from The Netherlands whose YouTube channel nearly six and a half thousand high quality uploads of various pieces of video game music (mostly Nintendo). Some time between the release of Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros for Nintendo Wii U, he received two copyright strikes and was forced to stop ripping music until they expired, or lose all of his videos. Following this, he did not upload a video for a year and a half. In his absence, on January 9th, 2016, a channel under the name GiIvaSunner (with a capital I in place of the L) was created by a group of Soundcloud shitposters to post fake video game rips under the guise of the aforementioned Mr. Sunner. The first of these parody rips was one of Battle!(Wild Pokemon) from Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire with the main melody of The Flintstones’ theme, a fun little joke that sounds pretty good. Things soon got out of hand.
-Demi Fiend’s Bizarre Shine Megan Tense Game FEATURING DANTE FROM THE DEVIL MAY CRY SERIES –
So lately I’ve been playing JRPGs made by Atlus, probably more than a Leaving Cert student should. I originally wanted to talk about Persona 4, then I played Persona 3, then Persona Q and it got to the point where I couldn’t let myself put together a good enough review on Persona 4 or 3 because they were no longer the thing I had the most recent memories with. Hence this review is on the last Atlus RPG I have currently played; Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. (more…)
We found this new podcast called Organised Nonsense— so I’ll link it down in the footer if you guys want to check it out. We were on the youtube channel today and my comment got like 69 upvotes or something like that, so it was a pretty small reception, but it was like the coolest feeling ever. I ended up following them on Twitter and stuff, and they all hit me up and they’re talking to me about potentially being friends.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or CS:GO is a tactical multiplayer shooter created by Valve with the Source engine. It is the successor to Counter-Strike: Source. It is team work oriented, like TF2 or overwatch, but the similarities to those games end there.
CS:GO is a lot more precise, with higher stakes compared to other team based shooters. When you die, you’re dead for the entire round. 5-6 shots with any weapon will kill anyone. Headshots are a death sentence unless you’ve paid extra for a helmet, and then it’s not exactly a slap on the wrist either, it will permit you an extra shot before dying. Kinda like a first offender’s program or something. Running and Gunning is less viable because when you get hit, it slows down your movement speed very significantly.
