Japanese as heck...but great fun!

Reviewed by on

Wasn't expecting much from this, but was pleasantly suprised by the energetic anime presentation and full voice acting, especially for a puzzle game. I am not a giant anime fan, and this is VERY Japanese, but unless you are dead inside, surely it will muster a smile or two. Premise is pretty silly, and why Japanese game developers ALWAYS have to shove in familiar-like creatures, aka Pukemon(spelling mistake intended), into their game designs, I will never understand. Gameplay mechanics are good, quite challanging (I've only tried it using the touchscreen on my Switch Lite, not sure how well this will translate to a controller, to be honest). Note that this title was released in 2018, so no gold point rewards for you, unfortunately. Still a great buy on sale.

Spooky satisfying Sci-fi FPS Rogue-like

Reviewed by on

Look, Rougue-likes aren;t my thang, y'all! But as long as there is a clear sense of progression and a bit of story-telling involved, than I can forgive this genre its sins. The Persistence finds this balance rather perfectly, with good voice acting and a logical explanation for why you die and revive a lot. Game can be rather unforgiving in the beginning, typical for the genre, but some, err, "persistance" on the player's side will reap the benefits of a well-designed and rewarding first-person stealth/action-fest. There are some odd HUD-designs that speaks if the game's VR origins, but controls translated rather well to a conso,e controller, all things considered. Some on-point sound design and pretty slick graphics (by Switch's standards), rounds out the package nicely. A decent buy at this price.

Best value for gamers in the long run.

Reviewed by on

I made the switch to xbox one x, back then when my PS4 pro was not delivering satisfactory 4k solution and sounded like jet engine. Microsoft have been working hard the past 5 years to improve their offerings and they are now the best value for money with Gamepass. Their focus on buying studios (They recently bought Bethesda) will deliver the exclusives they were so lacking last gen and it will be first-day release on Gamepass. That R160 Monthly sub vs 1 game new release which retails at 1200 on launch. That's just 1 title and you saving 1040. Gamepass requires approx 6+ games monthly but noted mix of indies and triple AA .
I'm no fanboy and just give the facts, Having owned both last-gen consoles PS4 PRO and XBONEX. My intent is to get the PS5 in 2 years especially now that it has been confirmed with patent reg a possible pro version might be in the works again. PS5 will have amazing exclusives but not yet and its only real benefit and focus Sony is pushing. Therefore both SX and PS5 have launched without or very little real next-gen exclusives. For your money worth the SX delivers now and in the long run. The console itself is sexy little machine one you can be proud of sitting next to your TV. It so soft you wonder if it's on some time.
The OS is fast and the SSD loading of games deliver. One of the main reasons to get now was to able to play Game of the Year of 2019 Sekiro at 60FPS and it delivers in backwards compatibility mode. Not even SX optimized yet.

My favourite game of all time

I love everything about this game, including getting my a$$ kicked and handed to me on a silver platter.
My favourite thing is how it makes you progress in your knowledge of the way you fight and how to adapt to each boss so the sense of accomplishment feels even more rewarding

Buyers beware-ish

Reviewed by on

OK, so, here's a warning, I don't mean to spoil hype here buuuut-

This is a game that the ps4 doesn't actually reach the minimum spec requirements to run this game well.

There's a lot of glitches, crashing and low frame rates and the overall quality is bad enough that they're offering refunds for it and are apologising to everyone for how it has turned out

This game was made for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X and the limitations here shows. Reviewers of the game were not sent xbox one/ps4 copies of the game, trailers did not use xbox one and ps4 footage of the game.

I am not saying 'do not purchase this game'. If you're determined, it is still playable, and there are many who REALLY like the game in spite of it being a really bad port.

But I do recommend that you do some research about the ps4 version specifically before deciding if it is worth paying full price for, because what you are about to get isn't quite what they advertise.

It is also worth noting that these issues could be patched out in future updates, this review is specifically for the games current condition at launch.

In any case, research this specific version of the game before buying.

Buggy Mess on Base Consoles

Reviewed by on

Even thought this amazing game runs almost perfectly on Xbox Series S/X and PS5 (even though it's technically running in backwards compatibility mode on both), it can be a frustrating experience on base consoles. The average fps can be as low as 16 and 29 at the highest. The graphics are muddy and the game seems to have more bugs on the base consoles than their next-gen counterparts. Even on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X the game struggles to reach 30fps and looks pretty aneamic. With bugs and constant crashes this clearly is still a game in development for the last-gen/low tier entry level consoles. Keep in mind this is even with the day one patch installed.

If you want to experience the game the way it should be, get a Xbox Series S/X/PS5 console or for the definitive experience: PC.

The wait was almost worth it!

Reviewed by on

Ok given this is a massive game and that it was hyped up to the wazoo, it was expected not to be all that it was hyped up to be.

BUT!

Even with the odd glitch and the graphics not being what we thought (at least for the base Xbone), the game is impressive to say the least.

The world is a massive, living world. Walk around, interact with people, stop gang fights, buy a soda, pick up a random "toy" to sell as scrap.

Hack a wireless billboard and download some new info, all while tracking a new bounty.

For all the negative comments there is a overwhelmingly positive side to this game.

I'm about 5 hours in, and struggled to put it down. Here's to another 50+

This is another great collector's edition for fans of The Elder Scrolls Online. The statue is really beautiful, but it is a bit disappointing that the journal is so much smaller than the ones included with the collector's editions for the base game and the Morrowind expansion.

Effortless & accessible gaming.

Reviewed by on

The Xbox Series X is everything I hoped it would be - a very powerful machine which works with everything I've already invested in. As a long time PC exclusive gamer, I bought my first console, an Xbox One S, about 2 years ago. Since then I upgraded to an Xbox One X, and got the Series X on pre-order the day they became available.

Considering the current cost of PC gaming, I couldn't be happier spending less than the cost of a single PC component (the GPU) on a dedicated gaming machine which just works.

Combined with the amazing value of Game Pass Ultimate, this is my future for gaming - no more driver updates, constant troubleshooting, or rebooting in my gaming future.

Since I don't have as much time for gaming as I used to, Quick Resume (combined with SSD loading speeds) is a real game changer for me. I can literally spend 30 minutes playing, and it will be close to 30 minutes of actual play time, instead of staring at loading screens.

Loving the next gen experience.

An honest PS5 review

Reviewed by on

So I have had my PS5 for about a week now and here are my feelings.

The looks:
The PS5 console itself is a chonky piece of hardware, an absolute unit. The largest console I have ever owned. This device will stand out in most living rooms. Sony was obviously going for a bold statement here. I also feel that form follow function here as the curved "wings" prevent the air intakes from getting blocked. Just be prepared to have space available for this console. The device is also very quiet compared to the PS4 Pro.

The controller:
This is the best Sony controller to date. It is slightly larger than the PS4 DualShock and slightly heavier. It also has haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that, while not transformative to the gaming experience, adds some great tactile feedback to games that support it. Also, USB-C FINALLY!

The UI:
This can be summed up in one word. Elegant. There will be improvements as the patches roll out, but the UI and UX is perfectly functional at launch.

The games:
While there are not many games that are really 100% exclusive to the console yet, the Spider-Man games running the PS5 versions are fluid at 60FPS but you can only have Ray-Tracing enabled at the 30FPS mode. I think we will in time see some amazing 1st part Sony games just like we did for the last generation. But for now, if you missed out on the launch drops of the consoles, you are not really missing out. So there is really no need to be leaving rude reviews for Raru like some of the guys below this.

All in all, this is a true "next-gen" console that is a must get within the next 6 months to a year due to the "skinny" launch line up of games. The controller is a big improvement and the looks of the device itself are striking. I see this console hitting its stride with a few more next-gen exclusives landing next year.

I received no updates on Allocation for 1st batch and 2nd batch.... Terrible service from Raru as usual... Those who you call speak without passion to their customers, believe they can control the narrative all because they have no recording system for calls and therefor can speak to customers any how.

Let me

Reviewed by on

So I see there is quite a debate going on in the reviews of the Xbox Series X, but no reviews for the Series S yet. I don't really have anything to compare it with, because this is my first ever real console. I actually bought it for the kids, so we bought 3 extra controllers as well.

I decided to go for the Xbox, because of the following reasons:
1. The price - it is more affordable than the PS5 Digital Edition.
2. You can play Minecraft, Fortnite and Roblox where Roblox is only available on Xbox (when it comes to consoles). These are the games that the kids want to play, because their friends are playing it.
3. Many previous generation games are available to play.
4. Many games support split screen which is just better on a 4K TV than on a 17" laptop screen.

A Must Buy Next-Gen Console

Reviewed by on

This console is really everything the marketing of it suggests. The quick resume feature on this console makes that load times are not common place in this generation. You can swap between multiple games and load in right where you left off for up to 10 games. The console is ultra fast thanks to its SSD and its quite responsive and this will be the console to play all 3rd party games which will run best on this console. Its the worlds most power console after all.

Xbox exclusive games tend to be co-op and have multiplayer so you can enjoy the best experiences with your friends unlike the competitor consoles that focus on just primarily single player games which means more replay value on XBOX.

Don't believe the review by Enrico K below, he is clueless and hasn't bought the product as it seems. Xbox has 23 in-house studios to make exclusive games for the console that will start to release from early 2021. Sony only has 13 in-house studios and wont have the advantage of having many exclusive games this generation. XBOX has family friendly and more mature games already on the market with much more to come.

The cherry on top is the Gamepass subscription service gives you an instant library of games for a low price. Its essentially the NETFLIX of games.

Happy gaming !!!!
