After previously excelling with their Sparkle titles, Azkend 2 is a classy match-3 adventure game. While traveling from Liverpool to New York your ship was pulled down into a massive maelstrom and you woke up in a place that may have never been gazed upon by the eyes of men. Your goal is to ascend from the bowels of the earth and return to civilization.
We all know of Zen Studios and we all know what a superb job they do of bringing various franchises to the pinball masses. We've had original IP's, we've had Marvel stuff and we've seen plenty of Star Wars ideas make their way to Pinball FX2. Hell, even South Park has been treated to the mash up.

I was a fan of the last two games by Experience Inc. that were localized, but Stranger of Sword City is probably my favorite of the three now. I liked the unique setting, and while I am already a fan of the genre, the small new additions were welcome changes as well. This is no doubt a tough game to start off and get in to, but it is rewarding and one of the best candidates I can suggest to those who are curious about the dungeon crawling genre but have not yet taken the leap.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore has made its way to the PlayStation Vita largely in tact. There are some disappointing issues with the port graphically, especially with the text as it hurts the experience for newer players, but otherwise it’s nearly perfect. It’s also the only way to play Skullgirls on the go, and those that pick it up won’t feel like they’re getting a stripped down experience.
Publisher Limited Run Games have revealed the sale date of Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, their latest title to receive the limited run treatment.
Scheduled for sale on April 25th via their webstore, the PlayStation 4 version will see 5,000 copies available and the PlayStation Vita 2,500.
A release window for Futuridium EP Deluxe has also been announced.
Overall, Trillion (the game, not the monster) was much more enjoyable than I was honestly expecting. You build a liking for most, if not all, of the characters, the battles are fluid, the soundtrack is solid and the gameplay is well defined. While the style might be a little too specific for most people, those used to either JRPGs or Rogue-likes ought to get a fair amount of enjoyment out of it. While it does have a few drawbacks, none are truly game-breaking or debilitating to the point that...
Covering the epic action from the recent blockbuster film, with that unique LEGO feel, gamers will be able to play through all the storylines from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The game will also feature exclusive playable content that takes fans and newcomers on adventures set in the time leading up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, providing additional insight about the new movie and its characters.
PC adventure games are making a strong comeback. Gamers are seeing HD remakes of a few of LucasArts’ great adventure games. Along with Grim Fandango and the upcoming Full Throttle in 2017, the most recent Day of the Tentacle does not disappoint. This is a worthy remake that anyone who likes gaming should play.
Japanese games can be very, very weird; Muscle March for the Wii and Mister Mosquito on the PlayStation 2 come to mind when thinking of games that probably never should have been localized. They are not bad games at all, but they may be a little too out there for Western tastes. The Senran Kagura series from XSEED hits all of those “out there” buttons
The Senran Kagura series has a few...assets it's known for. But underneath that veneer of anime tropes lies an entertaining third person brawler, much akin to a more arcadey version of Dynasty Warriors. Ryan Johnson at The Gamer's Lounge puts it through the paces to see if it's worth your time.
"Blast ‘Em Bunnies is the newest game from Australian indie studio Nnooo, one in which you are put in control of a Bunny armed with upgradeable weapons, with your objective being to survive as many waves of various species of Evil Bunnies as possible, without forgetting you’ll need to go up against the usual big Bosses as well."
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel is in many ways an excellent RPG. It has wonderful characters, an interesting and engrossing world, and a very enjoyable battle system. The voice acting is excellent (though it's only partial, not fully voice acted), and the writing and localization is of top quality. It even has decent replay value, with a New Game+ mode.
Grim Fandango Remastered was one of my favourite experiences of 2015 – even if it was my second or third time experiencing the game. It was a great remaster of one of my favourite games of all time. The team at Double Fine have also been working on a remaster for Maniac Mansion II: Day of the Tentacle, simply entitled Day of the Tentacle Remastered. March 22, 2016 is when the game will be released on PC, PS4, and Vita. Along with the announcement of pre-orders going live from GOG, they also s...
