Axiom Verge is the Metroid/Castlevania/Contra/etc inspired action platformer developed by Tom Happ. The premise is that you control Trace, a scientist who was hurt and then wakes up in a mysterious, advanced, and horrifying world. The more you progress the more equipment you obtain. The world begins to open up to you. It feels as if a ode to games of old that provided that feeling of isolation to a diverse point.
After the intro cut scene, which is stylized 16 bit style, you get dropped into the world. Then all of a sudden you hear (read) a mysterious voice that begins to guide you. You gain some equipment, fight some enemies and then get ready for the first boss. Now for me the boss killed me the first time since my health was low. Your death is written in the game. You literally copy your brain and body at save points which I found to be massively interesting.
Axiom Verge provides the player with the option of non-linear exploration throughout 9 different areas. The game features many different tools you can obtain, including various weapons with unique firing modes. There are also many abilities and upgrades for Trace such as health. You will fight a vast a array of different enemies, and have to obtain many different tools to even get past certain areas. Some bosses are easier with better weapons of course. You can pretty much do anything in the order you choose as well, which makes it a interesting experience. Plus about halfway through the game you can become pretty over powered to regular enemies, but bosses can still be a challenge. The game even features a speedrun mode, challenging you to see just how fast you can finish the game. Let’s just say you need to beat it a few times to do a good speedrun.
The game carries itself with a interesting narrative experience. At times you question yourself and whats happening on screen. The more bosses you fight, the more items and weapons you obtain, the stronger you become, but is what’s happening real? The game at times feels as you have been sent to hell, or are in a nightmare, a coma, a simulation, the twist and turns become insane at times for someone like myself who is into this genre and the heavy narrative experience. The game even has it’s share of plot twist in a way, but I am not spoiling that for you.
Final Verdict: Overall Axiom Verge is a great experience. There is nothing I can really say negatively about this game it is simply amazing. It even feels oddly familiar. It fills as a great successor to like Super Metroid. It may not be that good, but trust me this game is close enough. I recommended this to anybody who likes good games. Stay classy everyone, and buy this game!

Grim Fandango is a 3rd Person Point & Click Adventure Game from LucasArts remastered by Double Fine Productions for the PS4, PS Vita, Windows PC, Linux, & Mac OS X. Grim Fandango follows Manny Calavera, a Reaper Of Souls in the Land Of The Dead, who is trying to get his hands on big cases from the new arrivals in the underworld by undermining his superiors. Manny soon discovers that even in death there is greed and corruption that will plague the soul. Manny decides he will help save the Land of the Dead as well as the client’s botched case that he was accused for sabotaging. The player will join Manny the player as he walks into the office for what will seem like a regular day at work but soon takes a turn for the worst as all over the Land Of The Dead haunts him.
Grim Fandango is still the the game we all grew up knowing and loving but the game does show its age, especially on a home console. The game is heavily puzzle-based and on console the player doesn’t interact with the environment as they do on Grim Fandango Remastered on Windows PC. Players with both versions of the Grim Fandango Remastered or those who remember the original will quickly notice that Manny’s original HUD (heads-up display element of the UI, or User Interface) is gone, this means players traverse around the world and interact with its surroundings they will do so sort of in the dark to what’s going on. This may have been done in an effort to keep the game closer to the original PC version but it also may end up leaving some players lost as to what to do next to solve the games many puzzles.
The charming characters and amazing voice work will still push players to keep trekking through the game to see what crazy mishaps and strange encounters that Manny and his crew will face in the Land Of The Dead if they are patient enough. The puzzles are complex requiring multiple parts to complete but are really simple if the player gives themselves time to listen carefully during the cut scenes as well as search entire areas before moving on. Players will also have to interview / interrogate certain characters to advance through the story and players find themselves laughing at the delivery of some of the lines after they make their choices. The writing material in Grim Fandango is genius and timeless, none of the jokes or gags feel dated, and the voice acting is still top notch.
When it comes to this version of Grim Fandango, some gamers may ask why is “Remastered” in the title. Tim Schafer and his team at Double Fine have made the game playable in HD, cleaned up and up-res’ed the character models, but that’s about it. The rest of Grim Fandango Remastered remains untouched and that may be because the team at Double Fine may or may not have access to all of the LucasArts assets due to the unique nature of this game’s license deal involving help from Sony to get the rights after LucasArts was shut down and acquired by Disney.
The game should be titled “Grim Fandango HD” in my opinion, since this is not the standard gamers expect from a modern day remaster. If a player hits the R3 button the game will revert back to the original version’s visuals and prove my point by seeing for themselves that not much has changed since the game’s original release in 1998. The audio quality is still superb and the team at Double Fine has recorded an audio commentary track that players can play and listen to in the background while playing that will give the player a behind the scenes look into the development of the game from Tim and his team at Double Fine.
Grim Fandango Remastered is the same great game we know and love from the late 90s and early 2000s with slightly updated visuals. This title still holds up pretty well even after 17 years of aging but the console remaster is still is a step behind the PC remaster version in terms of player controls. Both platforms provide something entertaining nonetheless. Grim Fandango would be as fresh and as fun today as a new released title even with the current titles from Double Fine Production like Broken Age or its competitors like “The Walking Dead” from Telltale Games. The tale of Manny Calavera is a fun, wacky yet witty tale of redemption and adventure that can now be experienced by a new generation of gamers for the first time.
Grim Fandango Remastered will be new for some and a classic for others, yet fun for all. It is the game that laid the ground work for fun yet complex character-driven stories told with an action-adventure theme, and point and click style gameplay. It may not offer many improvements from its original release but Grim Fandango Remastered is a trip for nostalgia junkies and something refreshing for new players to experience.

Even though Senran Kagura: Bon Appetit was released back in November, I still wanted to provide a review to our readers of a rather enjoyable and relatively unknown PS Vita gem. This game fashions itself under the Music and Rhythm genre, but is by far one of the stranger titles I played in 2014. I did not do much research into the series or this specific game before playing it, but I was excited to play a rhythm game on a platform that lacks titles in this area.
The first thing I want to say about this game is it is a mature title not suited for children, so parents beware. The anime styled game is part music, part rhythm, but most of the gameplay revolves around defeating your opponent during a cooking competition and stripping them naked. Yes, you heard me right, naked cooking! Its basically all about the boobs.
The story is pretty lighthearted. It involves ten playable characters who are in an underground cooking competition organized by a guy named Master Hanzo with first prize being a Secret Ninja Art Scroll which grants one wish. Unfortunately the story is not cohesive and will make almost no sense to most American audiences. Each character has her own back story but the game definitely left me scratching my head on a number of occasions because I did not understand it.
The gameplay, however, is straight forward with a great soundtrack of Japanese pop music. Button icons roll in from the right side of the screen with an area near the left side where you must match the beat of the music and button presses to keep the game going. Each match is broken up into 3 rounds, with each one getting a little faster and Master Hanzo grading each. The loser of the round loses part of her outfit, and if a perfect match is won the loser will literally be left naked.
Here is the toughest part of the game: concentration! As you are matching buttons to beats the camera pans around to the contestants cooking and often I lost the beat of the music because I had an ass or boob distracting me directly in the background. I am guessing that distraction is by design and boy did it work.
Despite the odd story, I did really enjoy the game and music. I found it to be a game I could jump in and play a match or two without having to invest a lot of time in a storyline. I laughed a lot during gameplay because I found some of the scenes so absurd (that’s a good thing in my book!). One side note, I love the names of some of the trophies; A Lot of Boobs and Panties Collector being my favorite.
I recommend this game for anyone wanting a fun music rhythm game on the PS Vita at a budget price ($14.99). Overall, despite its weird, strange, and silly story, it was still a solid and entertaining game that left me wanting to play more.
Overall Score: 8/10
