The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be releasing soon, and to keep you occupied, here’s a couple of screenshots and a new Kingpin Trailer for the game.
The only thing that really needs to be said about Dark Souls II is that it’s more of the same. The game keeps everything which worked in the original. It remains hard as nails, improves and expands upon previous aspects without ever losing sight of what it needs to be, and is an all around solid title. The only real failings come from its increasingly overblown reputation and the various communities which have built up around it. If you like hard as nails combat and enjoy bleak, dark, moody settings then you’ll be right at home here.
Still, you’re probably not going to be quite satisfied with just that. So, let’s examine these points in further detail. Just to give warning though, this is mostly going to be a review for people who played the original.
Looking like the unholy hybrid of Game of Thrones and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Spider Games’ Bound by Flame is an upcoming title which definitely merits a look. Revealed not too long ago and with both a trailer and press release covering the story and new details, this new release promises an epic fantasy saga with choices and side-quests galore.
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.
Is it good, is it bad? It’s not quite that simple here.
After some considerable silence after the initial blitz of trailers and the single greatest line in human history (“I’m coming for you, you Nazi f***ing spaceman!”) publicity for the upcoming Wolfenstein release slowed for quite some time. After that, Bethesda Softworks have now revealed not only the game’s release date but a very special pre-order bonus for the game. One which grants owners early Beta access for another upcoming installment for a beloved classic FPS series.
