An Assassin’s Creed Unity positive review bomb has emerged. It appears to be a result of yesterday’s announcement that Ubisoft would be donating more than $500,00 to the restoration of the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral and giving away Assassin’s Creed Unity for free on the Uplay Store for a limited period of time. A review bomb following a real-world event isn’t entirely a surprise, but there’s something interesting about the phenomenon this time around—it’s a positive review bomb. ResetEra reports that the Assassin’s Creed Unity positive review bomb has caused a beneficial spike in recent reviews. 722 reviews at the time of writing shown in the above image have largely been positive. Assassin’s Creed Unity has received a paltry 29 negative reviews in the last four days, a number that pales in comparison to the 488 positive reviews that the game has received. The customer reviews filter was restricted … [Read more...] about Assassin’s Creed Unity positive review bomb emerges following Notre-Dame donation and game giveaway
Godox s type speedlite bracket review
I’ve thought about this for a while. I’m not sure there’s a point to reviewing Kingdom Hearts III. Let’s be honest: you’ve already made up your mind about the game. You’ve either been waiting 14 years and got it on day one, or you’ve let the whole series pass over you like the confusing wave it is. I’m in the 14 years/day one crowd. I’m not entirely sure who this review is for. I guess it’s for me, God knows I want to put my thoughts down somewhere.Picking up directly where A Fragmentary Passage leaves off, Kingdom Hearts III depicts Sora and friends’ efforts to assemble the Seven Lights. These seven will face off against Organization XIII in an effort to stop the summoning of Kingdom Hearts. Along the way, Sora also needs to reacquire the powers that he lost and does so by hopping to various Disney worlds to learn important lessons about himself. It’s not a Kingdom Hearts game if you don’t start in some … [Read more...] about Kingdom Hearts III Review
One-minute players are using hyperdrive in order to get to an ice-covered planet, and the next they’ve fallen into an ambush set by space pirates that won’t give up until one of the two sides are dead. It’s these unpredictable moments that make Starlink: Battle for Atlas so exciting, as Ubisoft’s space shooter is constantly providing little moments no matter if they are in outer space or exploring a planet for themselves. Similar to Far Cry or Assassin’s Creed, the next distraction is only ever a few moments away. However, to describe Starlink as merely a shooter would be doing Ubisoft’s latest title a disservice. As players explore different planets they will come across various animals (both friendly and hostile) that they can scan to their ship’s memory banks, discover areas that can be refurbished into various bases that have an impact on the planet itself, and experience different types of missions that range from boss … [Read more...] about Starlink: Battle for Atlas Review – Star Fox Done Right
Indie Metroidvanias were still somewhat of a novelty back in 2013. Even then, Guacamelee stood out among its peers because of its smooth platforming, wonderful music, hilarious writing, and gorgeous art style. I was a huge fan of that special game. And, judging by the glaring similarities and multitude of copied elements, so is GUACAMELEE 2. Guacamelee 2 successfully imitates the style of the first game but lacks the surprise and ingenuity necessary to top that original outing. And what an original outing it was. It took the template of locking progression behind a power set that gradually unlocked over the course of the game and put its own spin on that formula. Guacamelee wasn’t about backtracking though; it was more focused on forward progression. This carried over into the suite of abilities, most of which were combat moves that doubled as traversal abilities. Its level design was only loosely inspired by Metroid and Castlevania as it swapped out the labyrinthine … [Read more...] about Guacamelee 2 Review – Bueno, but Too Muchador Like the First Luchador
REVIEWS for State of Decay 2 are in, so it's time to find out of the game, out today on Xbox One and PC, lives up to the hype. Critics have been far from unanimous, with even the good reviews being sprinkled with a pretty significant number of concerns. TheSixthAxis sums up lots of people's feelings by describing it as "an imperfect but enjoyable sequel to the superior original". Gameinformer's work-in-progress review says that, so far, it's "an awful lot of fun" despite being rife with bugs and performance issues. The game sets you up as a survivor of a Walking Dead style zombie apocalypse with a lengthy single-player modes that sees you scavenging for supplies as you mostly avoid the undead hordes. You build up a base and more survivors to play as while you progress through the game, uncovering more of the world as you go. This in turn lets you scavenge more supplies, find more of the map... you get the idea. According to Polygon, while this process can be superficially satisfying it … [Read more...] about State of Decay 2 review round-up: Is the open-world zombie game fun and is it worth your money?
