KLAUS (PS4 Review), Does This Puzzle Platformer Leave You Wishing You Could Forget Or Is It Simply Forgettable?

KLAUS has been on my gaming radar for quite some time, I was intrigued by the overall premise of the story where you awake with no memory of who or where you are. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I’m a big fan of the puzzle platformer genre, but this can be a double edged sword as so many in this genre leave me wanting more as they become all too repetitive.

That left me asking the question, does KLAUS leave you wishing you could forget or is it simply forgettable?

However they made enough of an impact that they’ve decided to move onto the next phase of their plan, launching Guns, Gore & Cannoli onto the Xbox One.

Extreme Exorcism, Should The Power Of Gaming Compel You To Play? PS4 Review

Extreme Exorcism is a multiplayer arena brawler that looks to bring back the golden era of couch gaming, where you and up to 3 friends are thrust upon a creepy haunted house and it’s your job to exercise those pesky poltergeists. However this one brings a unique twist. Whether playing cooperatively or solo, at the end of the day, you’re still going to be your own worst enemy.

However the question remains, should the power of gaming compel you to become the extreme exorcist or is Extreme Exorcism a spectre that should be exercised from your must play list?

I Am Bread, The Incredibly Delicious PS4 Review

When Bossa Studio’s revealed their most recent title I Am Bread, I think everyone in the community was a little curious. And then we remembered, they’re the same team that delivered the hysterical and wildly successful Surgeon Simulator. However it wasn’t until I Am Bread launched on Early Access for PC that everyone really started buzzing, is it really possible that it’s going to live up to the hype?

Batman: Arkham Knight, The Long Awaited PS4 Review

First off I’d like to apologize that it has taken me so long to get this review together, however as you know I’m not always afforded as much time as I’d like to dig in and play games because everyday life tends to get in the way. And let’s face, it if I was going to review this game it was only going to be after 100% completion of the story and all side quests…

Rocksteady has built such an amazing franchise in the Batman:Arkham series, Arkham Asylum reignited my passion for gaming, Arkham City proved that you could improve upon perfection, and of course while Rocksteady was developing Arkham Knight WB games developed Arkham Origins which wasn’t perfect but they managed to prove they could tell a truly classic Batman story while taking full advantage of the groundwork that Rocksteady developed. Why make mention of any of this, how is this relevant to my review of Batman: Arkham Knight?

It’s simple. Batman: Arkham Knight is the game that I’ve most anticipated for the last few years, it’s the only reason that I stepped out and bought a PS4 when I did. My expectations for this game couldn’t possibly be any higher. The question remains, is it actually possible for Rocksteady to live up to my unrealistic expectations as they deliver their final entry into the Batman: Arkham franchise?

N Plus Plus, The Death Defying Action Platformer PS4 Review

n++ review

My love affair with the N Series began in 2008 with the release of N+, which was the second game in the series. However I have to be honest, N+ wasn’t even on my radar as being a game I needed or wanted to play. Based on what I’d seen at the time, it looked to be far too simple and I couldn’t see the value contained within it.

And then I downloaded the demo. By the time I’d beaten all of the levels within it, I knew I needed to buy it. With that being said, could N++ possibly live up the the high expectations that I approached it with?

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with N++, take a moment to familiarize yourself before continuing.

Review Abyss Odyssey: Extended Dream Edition

Gameplay
Rereleased on Playstation 4 on July 28th 2015 by Ace Team is Abyss Odyssey. Gameplay is a mix of special abilities, jumping, dodging (or lack of) and blocking. The interesting part of Abyss Odyssey is once you die you get to use a much weaker human version to avenge your death. Then you can then seek out a special altar to revive your special character. If you die when you are this human you must start all over again as the use of save points is very limited and only if you have a special item to save at an altar and even that has a limited amount of consumption.

Batman: Arkham Knight, Arkham Episodes Batgirl: A Matter Of Family PS4 Review

When the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass was announced, it was immediately met with criticism from the community due to the high price tag and the significant lack of content disclosure. However Rocksteady and WB Games quickly recovered and decided to share an overview of what season pass holders would be able to expect, included in that was the reveal of Batgirl: A Matter of Family.

In the Arkham franchise, aside from Origins, We’ve never had an opportunity to see Barbara as she was before the events that unfolded in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke, when she was paralyzed from the waist down by the Joker. Somewhere in between the Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum continuity there existed a time when Barbara Gordon was Batgirl. This is why I was excited, the idea that we’d finally get an opportunity to see Barbara’s strength and determination portrayed in a different light within the Arkhamverse.

However this is the 3rd piece of DLC we’ve seen for Batman: Arkham Knight that has been developed by the WB Games Montreal team, this is also the last piece of DLC that they’ll be developing for this game. Have they saved the best for last or will Batgirl: A Matter of Family fall in line with the rest of the DLC they’ve produced thus far?

If you haven’t yet had an opportunity to check it out, here it is in action.
