Remember Strider? The guy with the massive sword-attack? Well Capcom remembers, and they announced the official release date for North America.
WOW! What a YEAR. There were a lot of great games that came out this year, some better than others. We had comebacks, remakes, and just awesomeness come together. Let alone the release of the new consoles (and no those games aren’t on this list because…Knack…). So we here at Paranerds.com combined our big-fat-heads together and came up with a list. When the name appeared more than once the game made it on the list, if that didn’t happen we took a look at the highest-rated and most fun experiences we’ve had with these games. This is the Top Ten Games of 2013.
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.
It’s almost August. That means that gamers can finally go inside again. No doubt burned by the sun and feeling unrecognizably better about themselves after fresh intakes of oxygen. The summer drought is done, and all of that disposable income we saved up is about to get [un]wisely spent on the usual overflow of August-December release titles. Of course, if you’re anything like me, the Steam Summer Getaway sale has bled you dry already. But as I cry myself to sleep every night, here is what’s coming in the forthcoming release window. Part I.
As we enter that weird limbo where everyone is holding off the new IPs and ideas for the forthcoming gen of consoles, it is odd and surprising to see a new idea enter on the back end of the market. With the Last of Us and Remember Me, we have two companies making a risk. In the case of the Last of Us however, we have a proven developer, delivering a punctuation for this generation of gaming. Remember Me however, is a different kind of risk. A new developer, published by Capcom and dealing with entirely new themes. Is this a hit that sets up a new long running series or should this title be left forgotten as the current gen light dims.
This week on the Paranerds Podcast, the Paranerds speak about Seed – The Journey, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Happy Wars, BioShock, Jurassic Park 3D and Jurassic Park The Game, along with new releases and news. The two then talk about BioShock’s ending and Kevin-WITHOUT SPOILING-speaks about how wonderful an experience he had with BioShock: Infinite, and how the ending really stuck with him. THERE IS NO SPOILERS FOR BIOSHOCK: INFINITE IN THIS PODCAST.
