Review - Dark Souls 2

Dark-Souls-2-Logo1

Dark Souls is a name of a game that evokes emotions, not the David Cage type of emotions but real ones. It is a series of games, with the first release called Demon Souls which came onto the scene and carved its name as a hard game, then Dark Souls released and it reopened the wound and poured salt into it, and now, just as the wound was about to heal here comes Dark Souls 2 with a can of acid just in case the last two games didn’t hurt enough. We get our ass handed to us again by willingly choosing to review Dark Souls 2 on the PS3

Review - Thief

The Thief franchise has seen a spam of 3 previous games, The Dark Project which released first back in 1998, The Metal Age which released in 2000, and Deadly Shadows which saw light back in 2004 and fans of the series had to wait 10 years for a new Thief game which we got to review for the PS4 and it is just named Thief.

Review - South Park The Stick of Truth

South-Park-The-Stick-of-Truth

South Park came onto the scene like a nuclear bomb, it was an instant hit. From the humble animated shorts from two people Matt Stone and Trey Parker to the blockbuster movies, numerous seasons and a batch of video games, but with the release of Stick of Truth I can honestly say that in my mind South Park has finally made it into the video games industry with this gem of a game.

Review - Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2

Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 is a mixed bag of impressions, the story and the music and graphics alone are all strong contenders for why this game should be an incredible journey but sadly almost every other factor that makes up this game is lacking in some form.

Review - Magus

Magus was Atlus sticking their feet into game developing for the first time, co-developing the game alongside Black Tower but sadly this is nothing more than a great potential on paper but rather lacklustre in ever other aspect.

Review - Pac-Man Museum

capsule 467x181

Everybody loves Pac-Man, at least there was a time where everybody did but maybe not so much any more. But that is all about to change, because Pac-Man is once again being put into the spotlight with the release of Pac-Man Museum, a collection of Pac-Man games. So the question is, do we really need a collection of Pac-Man games? The short answer is yes, the long answer as to why is in this review of Pac-Man Museum.

Review - Journal

6

In todays gaming industry you can broaden the spectre of what a game is and should be. With the blossom of indie developers around the world, and people realizing that you do not need a huge company behind you to get your dream game released, some might argue that we are currently drowning in game releases, and we are to be fair, but there is also a lot of good games that get washed away in this flood without getting to reach its specific audience. Journal, in my mind, is one of these games, charming and atmospheric but needs a certain audience to really shine.

Review - Girls Like Robots

girls-like-robots-img-4

Some games unfortunately just pass by gamers simply because they do not get enough publicity or the fact that it is not a triple A budget title and therefore gets lost in the swarm of game releases. One of these diamonds in the dirt is a simple, yet incredible addictive puzzle game named Girls Like Robots.

Preview - Lumini

We here at TGP always start out our indie game reviews/previews the same way, we shine light on the fact that so many games are released every year flies right under the radar of most gamers simply because of either lack of publishing or the fact that a lot of these diamonds in the dirt are made up by a small team of developers that simply do not have the stage to address a huge audience or the money to their word across. But if we can get at least one more “triple A gamer” to try out one of the indie games we show off from time to time we always feel a lot better.

Review - Reaper Tale of a Pale Swordsman

Games jumping from Mobile to console or PC is no longer as foreign as it used to be and Reaper - Tale of a Pale Swordsman is no different, except it is different, in a way.

Review - JazzPunk

jazzpunk header image 02

In the last couple of days I have played a wedding clone of Quake, a cat scratching simulator, been attacked by a fruit bowl which turned into one epic fruit ninja type fight, I have played Gravy Racer which reminded me a lot of another game with a similar name, and all of this and so much more my brain almost imploded with entertainment all wrapped up into one beautiful game called JazzPunk and if you haven't heard of the game yet you should and this is why I will tell you why you should have played Jazzpunk at least twice.

Review - Tomb Raider Definitive Edition

tomb-raider-definitive-edition-cover-art-1024x612

More Tomb Raider you say? On a next-gen console you say?? Yes, a million times YES! This is basically what it sounded like in my head when I was approached with reviewing (for a second time) the newest Tomb Raider game, but this time it was on the rather lonely and dusty PS4, because let's face it people, the launch line-up for either machines were not all that great. But do not worry because this is one game you really need to experience on your next-gen magic box.

Review - Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD

ACL HD Hero

Fresh off the boat, as we just reviewed Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag a few months back we get another Assassin's Creed release in the form of Assassin's Creed: Liberation HD available for PS3, PC and Xbox 360. Previously available only on the PS Vita this is a strict port for those of you that haven’t already experienced this game. We get to play around with the Xbox 360 version of the game and this is what we think about it.

Review - Zen Pinball 2 (PS4)

11341942684 2b896c3afc z

Taking something as classic as Pinball and putting it on a gaming console isn't as easy as some might think, there is something special about a Pinball machine, be it the nostalgic feel it used to give us or the sounds and bright lights that penetrated our minds, either way, we always have a little bit of fright in us everytime we check out a new Pinball game simply because we love them so much but luckily we haven't had anything but great experiences when it comes to Zen Pinball so we were more than eager to check out what it would look like on the PS4 with the release of Zen Pinball 2.

Review - Gran Turismo 6

1

Gran Turismo is a title that any with a PS1, PS2 or PS3 will recognize. It has been the synonymous and in some minds the uncrowned king when it comes to racing sims on consoles since it released. But if you go back and replay the first Gran Turismo game that released back in 1998 and compare it to what it looks like in the latest release, Gran Turismo 6 then you wouldn’t even know it was the same series because GT have always had one thing going for it, the graphics and the amount of details put into the overall product. Although with the release of the next-gen consoles it is strange to review a game that looks this good and seems to be fitting on a next-gen console when it just released on the PS3. But with so many gamers not being able to pick up a PS4 yet this might just be what they need right now.

Review - Assassins Creed IV Black Flag (PS4)

acivps4

We have already reviewed AC IV Black Flag for the Xbox 360 but we thought it would be fun to check it out one more time, but this time on a Next-Gen console to see if it is worth getting again for those of you that already have it or if the differences are too small to even notice.

Review - Trine 2 Complete Story PS4

Trine 2 Complete Story Banner

I love the Trine games! I loved the first one and I adored the second one, the stunning fairytale styled visuals and the soothing background music mixed with the delightful mood of the narrator telling the entertaining story of the heroes as they embark out into these strange and wonderful landscapes. When I got word that I would get to review the PS4 version of Trine 2 I was all over it, next-gen Trine ? Sign me up!

We already reviewed Call of Duty: Ghosts for the Xbox 360 earlier but there is a new console in town and its name is PS4, and what is better than Call of Duty: Ghosts on a previous-gen console? Well Call of Duty: Ghosts on a next-gen console of course! Or is it...

Review - Adventure Time ETDBIDK

adventure-time-dungeon

I love Adventure Time, as a parent I got hooked on it pretty early and even got my kids hooked on it by getting involved and watching it with them. It is a wonderful cartoon show that is just as much focused for adults as it focused on kids. So a game based on the series was a no brainer, I had to get my kids gathered around the TV and just hand them the controllers and let them do the work. Well actually I had to get my hands dirty myself after awhile.
