God Eater 2: Rage Burst is the latest “hunting” game released by Bandai Namco, looking to differentiate itself from the most well known title Monster Hunter, God Eater 2: Rage Burst features Anime style visuals and more of a focus on narrative. Does it do enough to stand out from the crowd or will it be devoured by the gods?

I really just finished playing the original Banner Saga about a month ago. Oh, I've finished it multiple times but the branching plots and wonderful world crafted by developer Stoic Games has kept luring me back since the original was released and made it one of my go to games.

Rogue Stormers has been through some pretty drastic development changes over the course of a few years. Developer Black Forest Games has been working on the title for a long time now, and after a brief name change and a few gameplay tweaks, it is finally fully released on Steam. After putting some time into it I see what they are going for, and for the most part, it works, but it does have a few issues here and there.

The Descendant, a new point and click narrative from Gaming Corps AB, is a post-apocalyptic science fiction tale that imbues the spirit of some classic games and films in the genre. There are clear comparisons to be made with Fallout, in the form of the Vault-like Arks which ostensibly serve to shield the last remnants of humanity from a nuclear catastrophe. This catastrophe is brought about, the opening cut scenes suggest, from a combination of environmental degradation, the erosion of global political alliances, and the escalation of human warfare.

The Talos Principle Review

Certain genres are so heavily associated with specific games that I don’t envy anyone trying to develop in the same space. Such is the case with first person puzzle games, where the simplest way to explain a game is by comparing it to Portal, the de facto standard. Most games vary mechanics and setting (although some less than others), in an effort to carve out an identity. The Talos Principle does those things, but spends less time worrying about similar mechanics and instead focuses on providing a much different narrative experience. That focus pays off, and even when taking puzzles out of the equation the game made me think much more than any other in recent memory.

While I was waiting to play Goat Simulator ahead of writing this review, I really had no idea of what to expect from the game. Was it going to be a genuinely funny, satirical take on all the more serious, conventional simulator games that have popped up recently, such as Farming Simulator or Car Mechanic Simulator? Or would it be a poorly executed attempt at satire? Coffee Stain Studios have gone on record describing their game as “small, broken and stupid.” A disclaimer on their website states that “you’re better off not expecting anything at all” out of Goat Simulator. Would the game be too broken to properly enjoy, and a waste of everybody’s time?
