Even though I ran into some pretty heavy technical glitches on my playthroughs, Blacksad: Under the Skin was a really fun game. The story was fun and enjoyable. The way the characters were presented was really well done too. If you are an adventure or mystery fan, this game could be right up your alley. It was for me, and I hope a sequel is being spoke of.
Murder by Numbers was a fun game for me to play. It was a nice change of pace to a lot of the current games and the puzzle aspect got my brain working well towards the end of the game. I would definitely recommend Murder by Numbers to puzzle, point and click, and visual novel fans. Take a break and enjoy something different!
Kunai is a wonderful game and another stern reminder as to why I keep kicking myself for avoiding the Metroidvania genre for as long as I’ve had. Clearly this is a genre still in it’s renaissance period with new, inventive play styles still coming out at a decent pace and kunai is no exception to that rule. TLDR: It’s a good game. Buy it.
Since this is my first interaction with Lucky and this being the 'fixed' version, I am really glad Playful Studios re-released this game. It's fun, cute, and somewhat challenging. It may not cater to the more experienced platform gamer, but I could easily see younger gamers really take to this game. If you're the least bit interested, I'd definitely say give it a shot!
Chikara: Action Arcade Wrestling is a lot of fun, especially playing with friends. New modes are being added all the time, but playing along may grow stale after a little bit. Kudos to VICO Game Studio for keeping on the updates and keeping the game moving forward. With a starting price point of $15, wrestling fans would enjoy hours of gameplay.
Tools Up! is a great entry in the simulation/party genre. It's a blast to play with friends and provides a good deal of challenge. If you have someone who struggles with time limits, the party mode is a great option because the timer counts up instead of down, giving you more time to play. I hope that Tools Up! will be supported with future levels that add a little more creativity and wackiness to the game. It would be great to have more environmental challenges instead of only using lava and slippery floors in later levels. As is, Tools Up! is a great party game that will entertain your family...or frustrate them if they don't communicate well.
Overall, John Wick Hex deserves your attention. It's got action, tactics, a great story, and a slick look. Fans of the movie would definitely enjoy the extra lore the developers took the time to create a story that fits perfectly in the world of John Wick Hex. The price of $19.99 is a solid deal for this game!
MW5 is an amazing game that puts all its cards into the experience of customizing and controlling its mechs and I think the hand it’s drawn is a full house. With a little more work in polishing graphics and sound however they could easily find themselves with a royal flush.
