The-book-of-unwritten-tales-2

Returning once again to the realm of point and click adventure releases, KING Art have opted to take things in a very different direction. Whereas The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief was a love letter to Agatha Christie through and through but ultimately set in a conventional world, The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 is a thoroughly Pratchett-esque outing. Embracing the staggering absurdity of the setting, this time there is much more of an emphasis upon gags, fantasy subversions and the odd obvious stand in here and there.

topten20worstconsoles

Over the years we have seen video games come and go, and we all remember them. How do we remember them? Usually by name. If a system had a a strong name chances are you heard of it and most likely bought it.  However if it had a terrible name you REALLY remembered it. Looking back at the video game consoles that came out it’s interesting to see some of the names that were associated with them. Some were great some were awful.  The names that were really terrible, meant nothing and just boggled your brain  and are probably the reason why you never purchased it or heard about it. With that said  Here are the Top Twenty Worst Console Names. Top Twenty Best Console Names can be seen HERE.

Note: Remember this is only based on the names of the consoles, not the hardware or games that came with it.

space-hulk-deathwing

Having been quietly in development for some time now, news about Space Hulk: Deathwing First Person Shooter has been fairly scarce. Beyond a cinematic trailer and a few promotional images, most of what audiences have learned has come through brief second hand information, but now we have a fleeting glimpse of what the game will lok like from the player’s perspective. Superfluously taken then leaked onto Facebook and the Eternal Crusade forums, the distant images give a general impression on how the game might shape out.

Over the years we have seen video games come and go, and we all remember them. How do we remember them? Usually by name. If a system had a a strong name chances are you heard of it and most likely bought it or the very least heard of it. Looking back at the video game consoles that came out it’s interesting to see some of the names that were associated with them. Some were great some were awful.  The names that were really strong, the names that stuck with you or even the names that explained what the console was are all example of good console names. Here are the Top Twenty Best Console Names.

Note: Remember this is only based on the names of the consoles, not the hardware or games that came with it.

Last_Dream_Video_Game

As with all things, as a franchise builds and develops they sadly develop flaws. Some fan be fatal, others divert it down a route the story never explored, and the canon devolves into a patchwork of retcons or forced sequels. Whether this is down to the creators losing sight of what worked, the rights shifting to those who do not understand the property, or even just changes in vision which go against its best strengths, we’ve seen this many times over. Sometimes it can take an indie to show where a major publisher went wrong, and Last Dream captures everything which SquareEnix has lost sight of with Final Fantasy.

Resident Evil Logo

Resident Evil HD Remastered is a remastered version of the 2002 version on the GameCube. That itself was a remake of the 1996 game for the Sony PlayStation which has been rereleased on the PlayStation 4. Simple enough no? With that said I personally never experienced this version before so it feels like jumping into a new-old Resident Evil title.
