When you think Kickstarter success stories in video games, Wasteland 2 would rank among the top of the pile. Funded back in 2012 and racking in almost three million dollars, Wasteland 2 is a true test of whether Kickstarter funding can be worthwhile or not, and it’s going to divide opinions.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution follows closely in the footsteps of its predecessor Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Jam-packed with more characters, story, special jutsu and new features, this title feels more like a continuation than a proper revolution as the name may suggest. As the fifth title (and possibly last title) for last gen consoles, Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution is a welcome inclusion to the long-running franchise.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair is the follow up the Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, a visual novel title, bringing together a whodunit murder mystery with Japanese quirky ingenuity. Trigger Happy Havoc was a brilliant entry point for many, prompting a translation for its sequel. It’s all fairly familiar territory with rich, robust story-telling once more.

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Review

Tinkerworld is in big trouble. The usually peaceful landscape is losing that which once made it such a happy, peaceful place to live. Gone are the days of togetherness and understanding; now replaced with anger, sadness and fear. The division of people through colours is a theme which continues throughout the game’s story, and might just have a thing or two to say about the world we live in by the time the credits roll.

Tales of Xillia 2 Review

One of last year’s monster J-RPG hit Tales of Xillia has spawned a sequel, aptly titled Tales of Xillia 2. It’s a tall task for Xillia 2 given the massive success of its predecessor, and yet again a delayed offering for the English speaking market. Tales of Xillia 2 is a thoroughly polished and genuinely welcome title to the Tales series, but doesn’t quite hit the notes in the same way that Tales of Xillia did.

Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is a re-release of the previously available Warriors Orochi 3 title and an update to the Wii U exclusive Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper, packing more extras and loads more punch over the original Warriors Orochi 3. The most comprehensive release for the Warriors Orochi series to date, there’s plenty to like about the Ultimate variation, particularly given this is the first time the series has emerged on next generation consoles.

inFAMOUS is back, well sort of. inFAMOUS: First Light is the latest release in the inFAMOUS franchise, a stand-alone prequel to the hugely successful inFAMOUS: Second Son of earlier this year. It’s a compact package that will entertain, although not to the full extent of Delsin’s larger, grander adventure.

Right from the outset, it’s clear that Team 17’s Flockers is set to be one strange ride. It’s not that its ideas are particularly wild or that it does anything notably new, but rather its oddities come from the fact that its various parts appear to be working against each other. Unfortunately, this issue goes far beyond the presentation and permeates the experience as a whole, making for a title that’s fun in spurts but ultimately tough to recommend.

Murdered: Soul Suspect on paper appears infinitely promising with its premise, but doesn’t quite reach its potential. The gameplay is unique, as is the world of Salem where everything takes place but ultimately feels like a wasted opportunity. The game never drew me in to feel engaging, but isn’t entirely bad either. By the end of it all, my feelings towards Murdered: Soul Suspect was left in a state of limbo.

Magic: The Gathering returns for another year with the release of Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers. The previous iterations have built upon the past title, improving and adding new features to justify the annual release schedule, much like the trading card game with its constantly evolving meta game and diverse card line-up.
