Futurelab has come out with a new puzzle game for the Vita, that involves music and colours, lots and lots of colours.
It was with some anticipation that I sat down to play Broken Age Part 1. Back in 2012 it was the very first project that I ever backed on Kickstarter and being able to play it felt like a kind of milestone and thankfully the game didn’t disappoint.
*Spoiler Warning* from the start this article contains spoilers to both the ending of Bioshock Infinite and Burial at Sea Episode 1.
Recently websites like the verge reported that gamestick units had been shipped to the backers of the Gamestick Kickstarter campaign. Paranerds can confirm that such reports are false.
Before I begin this review I should state that while I did manage to watch a few episodes of DuckTales growing up I was never very familiar with the show and I have never played the original DuckTales game, so I’m not in a position to judge how well this serves as a an adaptation or a remake.
For those of you who are unaware, Fire Emblem: Awakening is the latest in a long line of games that started in 1990. I imagine that a fair few of the readers may be unfamiliar with the series because a large portion of the Fire Emblem games were never released outside of Japan and not everyone has played Super Smash Bros (Melee or Brawl). This unfamiliarity may make first-time gamers hesitant to give it a try but I recommend that you look past that and give this game a try.
The word “compelling” apparently gets thrown around gaming a lot these days (though to be fair I’ve seen more people make fun of the word compelling than use it) but the word that I would use to describe Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is…rewarding. As a game it is proof of all the sayings that our parents used when we were growing up in order to illustrate that with work and patience comes reward.
