Nights of Azure (Playstation 3/4/Vita, 2016)

Written by

Overview

Some time ago, a creature known as the Night Lord rose up to bathe the world in eternal darkness and rule forever in the shadow of the new existence. Armies rose to challenge him, but all were defeated in their turn until the great Saint defeated him in combat. However, his death did not come without consquence, and his blood rained down upon the world, and corrupted all it touched. Thus were born the beasts who devour the dreams and night time of the people, especially upon Rusewall Island where the final battle took place. Into this, comes Arnice, a woman who has not been corrupted by the blue blood, but instead has fused it equally within her, making her blood purple thus taking the blue blood's power, but keeping her human free will. Here she has been charged with defeating the beasts, and ensuring that the new Saint is protected until it is time for her to be sacrificed to seal what remains of the Night Lord once again. Problem is, the new Saint is an old and very good friend of hers, Lilysse, and Arnice will be damned if that one will be sacrified. Other options will need to be considered.

The Elder Scrolls Online Video Review (PS4, 2015)

Written by

Overview

From The Elder Scrolls Online wikia:


The Elder Scrolls Online, also known as The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and commonly abbreviated as ESO, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that was announced in May 2012 and was released for PC and Mac on April 4th, 2014.[1] It is the eighth game in The Elder Scrolls series. On June 9th, 2015, the game was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Developed by the team at ZeniMax Online Studios, The Elder Scrolls Online merges the unmatched exploration of rich worlds that the franchise is known for with the scale and social aspects of a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.


The Elder Scrolls Online features a Buy-to-Play model similar to previous Elder Scrolls titles, where one buys the game and play it for free afterwards, but there is also an optional membership program, ESO Plus, which grants bonuses such as increased XP gain and free access to all DLC Packs. The game has an in-game cash shop, the Crown Store, where things such as vanity items and cosmetic mounts are sold for a premium currency called Crowns, but nothing that gives players a significant advantage over another will be sold. Players who have had a subscription prior to the transition will be given 1500 crowns, or more if they have had a three or six-month subscription.


Buying the Imperial Edition gives players the option to play as an Imperial, craft Imperial gear, convert existing gear into the Imperial style, gives an Imperial horse with standard stats, a mudcrab vanity pet and the Pledge of Mara, which allows players to marry.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (PS3, XBOX 360, 2012)

Written by

Overview

On an unnamed world in the island duchy of Gransys, you live in the small fishing village of Cassardis, tending to your nets and looking fondly at your childhood friend, Quina. When, as is usual for these stories, something happens. In this case, the great dragon attacks, and does what dragons do...kill and destroy. Fearing for your village, you take up a weapon and charge the beast. You know full well you have no chance, but maybe you can buy time for others to get away, especially Quina. Strangely enough, you manage to actually scratch the creature, drawing it's curiosity as it pins you under its claws. For your heroism, you earn a new reward...agony, as it tears your heart out and devours it in front of you. Strangely though, you do not die. It informs you that you are now an Arisen, and if you want your heart back...you're going to have to gain much greater power, track him down, and kill him. You've heard of this occurring before; you're certainly not the first or the only one. Still that puts you in a very odd position, and thus it is the start of your journey. You quickly learn that the Arisens never journey alone as these creatures called Pawns are drawn to you and are driven to help you. Good luck!

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Written by

Overview

The civil war has gone badly for both sides of the conflict on Cybertron. Their planetary core has shut down, and with it, the life giving energon it produced. Soon their world will be a barren husk, devoid of any ability to sustain life, fit only for those creatures that scavenge from the dead, and perhaps soon, not even them. Having evacuated as many of the Autobots and non aligned as he could, Optimus Prime turns his attention to the final transport, The Ark, which will take the bulk of the Autobot army to the stars in search of a new home. The Slagmaker himself, Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, however, has no intention of letting them escape his wrath, though he too knows that Cybertron's days are numbered.

L.A. Noire (PS3, 2011)

Written by

Overview


Dressed to kill.December, 1947, Los Angeles. Rain had been trying to scrub the city clean for a week, but sometimes I think Noah’s flood wouldn’t be enough to do this town justice. I was sitting in my darkened office, taking the last drag off a heater down to its filter, too broke to buy a new pack or pay the bill to turn on the lights, but that didn't matter. Not for a private detective sitting across the desk from lovely Lola LaSalle, a dame with all the right curves, and all the wrong reasons for coming to a guy like me. A sweet country girl, Lola, or she had been before the dreams of rising stardom she followed west from Iowa fell under the weight of Hollywood’s millstone. I could see the story in her watery blue eyes, grim as the downpour outside in that baby-doll face, as she told me all about her roommate that had gone missing last night. I’d heard her story a hundred times before… after all, her story, and others like it, are the only reason a gumshoe like me can make it in L.A. Noire

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs (PS3, 2011)

Written by

Overview


Squad up!Playing shooters can be a mixed blessing, sometimes. Both first and third person based shooters share certain elements, and the overall structure from one game to the next is usually fairly similar. Some people call that repetitive and boring. For myself, I’m usually more concerned with the level design, game balance and playability than I am with structural similarities. Two games can be similar but feel and play completely differently with a little work on the part of the developer. One way in particular to make a shooter feel different is to add a tactical element to the game play, so that rather than just dealing with your own character, you can also direct and position allied forces in order to create crossfires, ambushes and in general just even the odds a bit. SOCOM 4 is an example of one such tactical shooter, and is the game I’m taking a look at today.

Portal 2 (PC, 2011)

Written by

Overview


ps3_portal2_shot1So, couple years back, Valve put out this strange little orange box which contained a couple minor little titles. Y’know, no-name stuff like Team Fortress 2, three flavors of Half-Life 2, and a little flea-speck that absolutely NOBODY noticed… called Portal. That particular utterly obscure title that I’m sure nobody other than me has ever heard of was based around a simple concept. You’ve got a gun. It does exactly one thing: make holes. Not bullet holes, like most guns. No, this little thing punches right through the fabric of reality and pokes through to another hole nearby. If you were extremely lucky, you might even have found the upgrade that let it make two different colored holes that always connected to each other! But hey, what good is a hole through reality to a gamer like you, I mean, it’s not like you could somehow use them to solve tests or anything, right…? Well, four million sales of Portal later, Valve’s released the highly anticipated sequel to that completely inconsequential little game, named… Portal 2.
