Strike Suite Zero: Directors Cut Review - Gamer Chatter

Released on PC back in January 2013 Strike Suit Zero, even fans of the genre seemed undecided on how to receive this new offering from Born Ready Games. Inspired by games such as Elite, Homeworld and Rogue Leader many hoped that this would be a return to the glory days of space combat and to a certain extent it was, the combat itself was excellent but some found the difficulty level off putting and the mechanics a little clunky. After getting feedback from the PC version the game gets a long overdue console release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the form of the new and improved Strike Suit Zero-Directors…

Soma brings "a much larger world, more attention to details"

Gamereactor talked to Frictional Games' Jens Nilsson about the possibility of bringing Soma to additional platforms (Xbox One), adding VR support, and how the game concept was born. "It's actually that we haven't done consoles before. So we are doing the PlayStation 4 at the moment and we just started out so it's basically that we need to know how much work is it to do a console game. And when we sort of know how much time it takes, then we might look into can we add another console. But at the moment one console is enough for testing."

So it has gone about rebooting and revising them in recent years, with varying degrees of success. Each new game superficially appears to understand its lineage, but close inspection reveals the results of misjudged tampering.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Review | Awesome Games

Rhys from Awesome Games: 'My history with the Final Fantasy series has been rocky at best. I started with the remake of Final Fantasy III on the DS and absolutely loved it. I went on to love IV, VI and IX as my favourites in the series, but never really liked VII, VIII or X; XIII was seen by many fans as a complete abomination, too, for a number of reasons.'

Final Fantasy XIV Column - Should it go F2P?

Final Fantasy XIV first launched in the hopes of delivering big. Unfortunately, it was met with a poor reception. We felt no inclination to dive in based on previous experiences and critical reaction. We'd hoped Square would have learned a lot from the competition this time, it seemed we were wrong. Still the desire to get it right was clear for all to see. The launch was quickly followed by a massive A Realm Reborn relaunch last year, followed by console releases, making it the first major new-gen MMORPG on Playstation 4. Square have shown theyre not ready to give up just yet, and we're glad…

Review: Trials Fusion (New Gamer Nation)

The Trials series comes with a lot of hype and it can be hard to imagine how a 2D platformer could really hold up to it all. There are countless free iOS versions and even old-school online flash games with the same premise. So why should you spend money on a game that doesnt feature any sort of new gameplay style? It isnt about the core premise, but the amazing execution. Trials Fusion may appear simple at first, but the more you play it the more you see all the complexities rising. Fusion is filled with content to experience and while you may not love everything it brings to the table, there…
