Review: Pandora’s Tower
By: | April 22nd, 2013

The time has finally come: the last Operation Rainfall Wii game has hit stateside. After so much fanfare for the two major RPGs in the group, Xenoblade and The Last Story, the action-centric Pandora’s Tower arrives with little to no fanfare, compliments of publisher XSEED Games.

But it’s a shame that it hasn’t gotten more publicity, as it’s completely worthy of “classic” Wii game status –in fact, I’d say it’s my favorite of the Rainfall Three. Provided that you’re willing to deal with a few outdated technical aspects, you’ll find one of the best raw action games in recent memory in Pandora’s Tower. Read more… »

Review: Dead Island Riptide
By: | April 22nd, 2013

If you were itching for an open world zombie game in 2011, Dead Island was just what the doctor ordered. It offered up a bloody four player co-op experience in a market that wasn’t quite over-saturated with similar experiences, and it soared commercially for it.

But the zombie-fest also came with a price: it had a heap of technical issues, game breaking glitches, and to some, a general lack of polish and heart that caused many players (myself included) to come away somewhat disappointed.

With all that said, I hope you liked Dead Island, as you’re basically just getting more of it. Read more… »

If you experienced Dishonored, you no doubt caught the catalyst for the protagonist’s entire adventure at the start of the game: the death of the beloved Empress of the The Empire of Isles. But who actually killed her? Why, none other than Daud — assassin extraordinaire, and man of dubious moral standing.

Well, you get to play as him in Knife of Dunwall — and it’s a ton of fun. Read more… »

You won’t find Pauly Shore in this (bio)dome. Well, if you do, he won’t be as fun as he used to be. Deep Silver and Techland have released this screenshot and more to herald Dead Island Riptide, coming in less than 15 days.

Not all are focused on the scenery, as you will see.

Review: Guacamelee
By: | April 9th, 2013

Most people are sold on a game the moment the phrase “Metroidvania” graces their ears. A tried and true formula, 2D open world games are still fully in demand, as it’s incredibly easy to screw them up, and they’re just as difficult to create.

But to simply call Guacamelee a Metroidvania and be done with it would be a disservice.

It’s a whole lot more than that . Read more… »

Review: Tomb Raider
By: | April 4th, 2013

I was extremely skeptical of the new Tomb Raider reboot. As a massive fan of the earlier entries in the series, it would be hard to top the magic of Tomb Raider II, especially since everything we had seen of Tomb Raider so far made it look like an Uncharted knock off.

Well, it’s far from a knockoff.

In fact, it’s one of the best third person shooters of this generation. Read more… »

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

What is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity? A simple enough question. One answer is it’s the latest in the Mystery Dungeon series and the first one for the Nintendo 3DS. Another answer is that it’s a that mixes Pokémon with roguelike, dungeon-crawling mechanics.

But the bigger question that needs to be asked is: who is Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity for? I honestly can’t say. And I have a feeling that Spike Chunsoft can’t answer that either. Not having a clear audience in mind leaves the game  full of boring, repetitive gameplay that wastes the player’s time.

Review: Bioshock Infinite
By: | March 28th, 2013

I had a number of problems with the original Bioshock. Barring the fact that it completely fell apart near the end, I didn’t really feel like Irrational delivered a truly unique experience once you were past the cool looking setting. Beyond the initial reveal of the underwater city of Rapture, I wasn’t really enamored by its cold, rusty Altanis-like veneer. A lot of areas felt too similar, and combat was a bit too basic.

Bioshock Infinite, on the other hand, casts its own shadow on other games in the genre — aesthetically, and otherwise. It’s the real deal. Read more… »

With three sales in two weeks, one would think that there was something funny in the drinking water over at the Humble Bundle offices. They assure us this is not the case. Rather, there is just a lot of excitement as they have expanded their Humble Bundle offering beyond the traditional and indie sales. You can now add the weekly and mobile sales to their repertoire.

According to one of their Support Ninjas, Melanie, “[w]e are very excited about the new weekly offerings and so you will see them regularly. We will continue with our traditional model as well.” Yay for us!

With PAX East behind us and GDC in full swing, it is understandable that Capcom be on a tear of announcements and new content. With a little hop from Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2, over DuckTales Remastered, and back into the realm of Umbrella Corp, they deliver unto us a brand new gameplay video for the Resident Evil Revelations console and PC port.

Rachel, the blonde, squirrely-voiced Federal Agent with luscious locks ever covering her eyes, gets all the attention as she shows off her skills in Raid Mode. A climactic and quasi metaphysical video it is, as she winds up coming face to face with … well, you’d just have to see.

The PC version of Resident Evil 6 launched on Friday. To celebrate, Capcom released two minutes and 52 seconds of gameplay footage for The Mercenaries No Mercy mode focusing exclusively on the Left 4 Dead 2 cross content. Chock full of overwhelming zombie hordes and while-on-the-back firearm discharging, this video is meant to please fans of both series, as well as anyone who appreciates good zombie killing action.

In addition, Capcom has released screenshots of the PC exclusive mode perfect for anyone who just can’t get enough. Gamer Limit has it all for you. It goes without saying that after the jump, you will be seeing mature content. Discretion is advised.

LEGO City Undercover might be the most ambitious LEGO game yet. Not only does it promise an open world adventure, but it also wants to win over your heart and mind with its eccentric action movie references that appeal to an older crowd, and full Wii U GamePad support.

While it doesn’t totally deliver on any of these fronts, it builds a great compromise. Read more… »
