Review: Disney Infinity 3.0 – Marvel Battlegrounds

Disney Infinity 3.0 is a huge success, with new figurines offering the best of Disney, Marvel and Star Wars in one bundle. Until now, Star Wars was the main focus of Disney Infinity 3.0 but that’s about to change in Marvel Battlegrounds. It’s time to call in the Avengers and their friends and enemies; it’s time to enter the arena!

Review: Hitman: Episode 2

“A murder in paradise” would suit the new episode of Hitman perfectly. With the pleasant release of the first episode of Hitman in March, we knew we were in for a treat with the next episodes. The last episode was a decent start to this episodic release game but it didn’t really live up to the past game experiences of “agent 47”. The first episode got a “tech demo” vibe to it, showing off the new “Opportunities” system. It backfired a little since this murder improvisation system was followed by the amount of disguises. Let’s see if this game can remind us of the real hitman that we truly love…

Impressions: Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Closed Beta

When you say “Game Beta”, you immediately think “Multiplayer Beta” because… That’s what Betas are for right? To test the Multiplayer, the servers, getting rid of some possible glitches, exploits and bugs, etc…

So why does a game that is singleplayer exclusive have a Beta? I asked myself that question while I played Dark Souls 3 during the time that it took for Mirror’s Edge Catalyst to download. Now the boss-man had asked for to make an impressions vid, so I complied. I set up my Elgato and waited for the game to install.

Impressions: Gears of War 4 Beta

The Gears of War Beta will officially kick off in a couple of days but we got the chance to test it already. It’s been a while since we’ve entered the universe of Gears of War and this fourth episode is destined to set the cover-based third-person shooter back on the map. Gears 4 will house some innovations but this beta experience felt extremely familiar, combining the gorgeous graphics of the Ultimate Edition with the solid controls of Gears of War 3.

Indie Corner: Blues and Bullets – ep. 2

Blues and Bullets is an episodic game and those who’ve played the first episode have been waiting long months for this second episode to finally release. Blues and Bullets Episode 2: Shaking the Hive takes us to the dark and interesting world of Eliot Ness and his nemesis/partner Al Capone once more. It’s great to be back in town but due to the time between the releases of both episodes, it might be wise to play episode once again. That being said, Shaking the Hive delivers that same great atmosphere combined with an interesting story.

Review: Adam’s Venture Origins

To find a good puzzle adventure game today is a hard task to complete. A game that only offers an exclusive story with different mind-bending puzzles without any combat mechanics or a sense of deep exploration, often isn’t enough to stand out amongst other action-puzzle- adventure games like the Uncharted and Tomb Raider series. “Adam’s Venture: Origins” isn’t really trying to compete with these big titans on the market as some people might think, but it wants to be a standalone enjoyable game that takes you back to a place where games were just simple reworks of existing puzzles set in a fantasy environment. You can compare it with “Lost Horizon”. The game succeeds in bringing an old game genre back but because of the weak story and dull characters, it will lose some of its potential to create a returning community.
