Not counting the Final Fantasy 8 and 16-bit ports, great role playing games on the iOS platform (iPhone and iPad) are extremely rare – and by rare I mean they just do not exist. But then I came across Battleheart Legacy, a highly rated iOS RPG sequel from Mika Mobile that turned the downtime on my recent vacation into an amazing mobile gaming experience … until I got to the end of the game. While BH Legacy is a blast to play, and a pleasant surprise when compared against the rest of the iOS RPG library, there are just too many fatal flaws that sadly makes me never want to pick up this game again.
The Dark Souls series is one of the best from this or last generation, and I don’t think anyone would be angry if went on a never ending Final Fantasy style release path with more sequels than you can possibly keep track of. Oh, but speaking of angry, yes, you will get angry playing Dark Souls 2; I’m probably the calmest, most patient person you’ll ever meet, but when you have to start all the way over from the freaking beginning after yet another stupid little mistake, controllers will break and profanities will be articulately shouted. But the reward for success? That’s what makes this series so legendary, and what makes the review below so hilarious for those who have endured the highs and many, many lows!
If you enjoyed the recent Duke Nukem Forever review we posted earlier this month, then wait until you read this hilarious one for Watch Dogs, which is the brand new open world action game that just everybody in the gaming industry is talking about. Hit the link below for the full review – you’ll be glad you did!
We’ve all played crappy video games at one point or another in our lives, and hopefully we didn’t lose too much money – not just by the game itself, but via broken controllers, etc – in the painful process. Duke Nukem Forever, released in 2011 and took only 15 years to make, promised to be the long-awaited sequel that Nukem fans had been craving for since Duke Nukem 3D became the “it” game in 1996. While I never played Duke Nukem Forever, I did play its predecessor, and I remember really enjoying it – especially the hilarious one-liners that you really couldn’t find in any other game or genre at the time. In the spirit of humorous one-liners then, it is appropriate that we feature arguably the funniest Duke Nukem Forever review that has graced the Internet, as this is short, not-so-sweet and directly to the damning point. Hit the link below and enjoy.
We, like most folks throughout the gaming world, are excited for The Last of Us. If you are new to SQ Nation, welcome; those of you who have been hanging out with us for our first few epic months in the Internet’s backwoods have likely seen the slew of trailers we’ve posted about and drooled over, and four days ago, the long-awaited “Uncharted-on-Steroids” title has finally arrived. Have we picked it up yet? No. I blame my 9-5 job, as I’m constantly traveling, but as soon as I’m back home I plan on picking myself up a copy and giving it the attention it most definitely deserves. Speaking of attention, the reviews from the major gaming media outlets have all thrown up synonymous scores, and they all rhyme with perfection: 10.
Out of the four of you that read this site, who remembers the old school cell phone and TI-83 calculator game, “Snake”? Remember that pixelated game of addiction, or am I alone on this? Well since my high school math days in Algebra I, video games, and calculators have come along way. Now kids are playing on iPhone 5’s and Samsung Galaxies in junior high math class, when I didn’t even have my first cell phone until I was a sophomore in college, but I digress. Fast forward to just a few weeks ago, when I dropped a measly $.99 cents on an intriguing little iOS/Android game called, “Nimble Quest”. If you couldn’t guess by the post title, we like this one – a lot. Hit the link below for more on this awesome electronic addiction.
I am pretty damn picky when it comes to iPhone/iOS games and apps; Mutant Mudds was the last game that really got me hooked, and I still find myself running back through those 3D levels in a vain attempt to reach 100% completion (get back to me in a few years). Although I have a track record of downloading many different iOS games on my iPhone 5, the majority get deleted either right away, or within a day or two at the latest. Ridiculous Fishing is one of those rare, insanely addicting iOS games that has made its way onto my iPhone, and I can’t stop playing it. And for only $2.99 in the App Store, this game is absolutely well worth it. More details on why we like Ridiculous Fishing after the link.
