oddworld New Tasty LogoWe here at Paranerds are very excited for the new Oddworld game. Clearly we’ve mentioned that series many, many times. So after playing Stranger’s Wrath HD, and Munch’s Oddysee I’ve had this itch to play Abe’s Oddysee, but since the Oddworld: New ’n’ Tasty is coming out I wanted to make sure it was different  so that I don’t play the same game twice. I asked them over their official Twitter page.

Belmont_Lords_of_Shadow_2

The real tragedy of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is neither the loss of its Metroidvania style nor the predicament of its protagonist. It’s the fact that it is a great game with so many visible blemishes plaguing otherwise excellent gameplay. It’s not that type of game where you enjoy everything besides that one irritating mechanic. Nor is it that kind of game where the experiences of good and bad even out into making it an average title. It’s a game where you jump in split seconds from God of War level fantastic combat moments, to shoehorned disappointingly unnecessary stealth sections.

So with the PlayStation 4’s release and the Xbox One following a short distance behind another gaming generation has come to a close. While titles will still be made for the older consoles, much of the attention will be drawn to the next generation.

Batman_Arkham_Origins_Review

With two major successes in the series thus far, the news of Batman: Arkham Origins’ was one met with anticipation but also a fair degree of caution. With trailers consisting almost entirely of CGI cutscenes and revealing nothing of gameplay, and the series changing hands to Warner Bros. Games Mortral fans had a developer named after a film company focusing entirely upon visual promotions. This wasn’t too much of a change from previous trailers, but at least there Rocksteady Studios had proven itself.

So now it’s released, how well does Arkham Origins hold up? It depends largely about what you want from the game.
