BANZAI PECAN: The Last Hope For the Young Century

1.0

Average: 1.0
Comments: 1
“So previously I reviewed Akane, being one of those games on the Steam store that's very clearly a budget title. So in comes BANZAI PECAN, which not only shoots for the budget range but the crude angle too. Of course, crude can be done well, where Saints Row did show us that you can succeed with an over the top approach. This game is, as you can guess from the score, is decidedly less successful than that series. The problem with the theme of the game is that it runs on bad sexual humour and pretty much nothing else. The story involves a reversal of the usual damsel in distress scenario where it's the guy that gets kidnapped and it's up to Banzai Peacan to come to his rescue. Then it drags it down with sex jokes at every corner and nothing else, going so far as to paint the protagonist as extremely desperate. I do have some appreciation of the art style though. It is down to opinion as not everyone is going to be keen on the webcomic style and it's not the most amazing thing you'll lay your eyes on but...”

“A £1.99 game with low key aesthetics whose marketing seems to revolve around showing off the breasts of the protagonist. What could possibly go wrong? I didn't buy Akane precisely because what I saw of the game gave me the impression it was built on a very small budget without the time investment to compensate, but when it ended up in a bundle I purchased for other games I decided to activate it and give it a try. I've been surprised before by seemingly low key games that hide amazing gameplay experiences behind their worrying exterior. Sadly, Akane is not one of those games. In fact, Akane is exactly what first impressions lead you to believe - a game on the cheap that lacks the wow factor that'll get you wanting more. For what it is the character sprites have some good detail to them, although Akane is more or less the only one you'll see regularly with an intriguing design. Of course I'd expect the generic enemies to be made up of standard ninjas, monks and dogs, but nothing else really stands...”

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows is one of those games that tried. Lord, did it try... but whether it was a lack of faith by Activision or simply a lack of experience, Red Fly Studio just kind of did something and hoped something would stick. The thing is that not only could it have worked, but it would've turned the typical hack and slash system right upside its head. Be honest, you want Platinum Games to play around with the Arkham Asylum combat engine. All that's stopping it from kicking ass is a lack of polish. From combat not having any oomph to the camera sucking shit through a straw, to commands being too responsive (if not unresponsive) and then to the boss fights being annoying as *bleep*, Out Of The Shadows lacks the necessary polish to knock one out of the park or be any good for that matter. In short, it's kind of bad. Not going to lie, though, this game did have a fairly good first impression. The Arkham style combat where you're kind of magnetized to a certain enemy...”

Written by Dark_Arcanine on Mar 23, 2015
“When you look up at the night sky, you can't help but feel there is a great mysticism encompassing it - it's beautiful, and it's vast. Similarly, NightSky is a title of little explanation that throws you into quirky and interesting environments, catching the eye and the imagination in equal measure as you overcome the puzzles interspersed throughout your journey. With an ambient soundtrack that plods along beside you, it's a fun title to play in short stints for those who want a bit of quick, casual gameplay. You are a ball. That is all you need to know and that is all you will know. Beginning in a beach setting as the sun touches the horizon, a seemingly sentient ball is discovered by a boy, whose description makes it seem completely alien in origin. Taking this strange spherical object home, he proceeds to have dreams comprising of unknown places. Whether these are projections of the object's experiences, or simply its creations, is unknown. What is known, however, is that such scenarios are then...”
Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds

“After rounding up some of my key titles of 2014 last year it did indicate a worrying trend of being overly focused on Nintendo licensed titles, with the likes of Smash and Pokémon eating into my time like nothing else. With PC gaming becoming ever stronger and a swiftly expanding marketplace for games on the platform I'm hoping to take a more active interest in new releases on PC this year. So... here's a review for a port of a Xbox Live and Vita title that hit PC this year. That still counts, right? The game is a 16 bit styled game that revels in its use of chibi anime graphics. Far from being a cheap cop out, the various characters and enemies are very well detailed. The stages that serve as the backgrounds of your clashes have plenty of detail themselves, like seeing the vast array of buildings in the city areas or seeing your character transition from one area of a building to the next and noticing that the area you're now in was the place depicting by the background of the previous location....”

“Little Inferno's one of those games that's meant to be a commentary of sorts on video gaming. In this case, it's about addiction to something so mindless and simple... with said addiction making you unaware of shit going on around you. It does all of this in a light hearted way. Like, it makes you aware of it, but it's not berating or anything. In fact, all of the writing is stuff that you would expect to see in that type of scenario. One person sending you letters is going crazy due to her addiction to this simple activity while another person's reporting the weather as if you're not there to experience the brutal coldness outside. Eventually, the creator sends you letters, wondering if you're enjoying her playset the company mass manufactured. It's kind of funny – you probably do or don't, but it doesn't matter because you're hooked and there's nothing you can do about it. The Little Inferno playset is here to stay and you're ill equipped to deal with just how awesome it is!! It's for those reasons...”
LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

9.7

“Lego Batman 3, another entry in the Lego Batman series...any good? Let's check it out. So, just like any Lego game, this game has very amusing dialogue and the levels are extremely fun. In Lego Batman 3, there are lots of little references to various DC and Batman/Lego Batman media, this is also true with the massive amount of characters! I won't spoil who's in the game, but there are a lot of obscure and fan favorites in the massive roster! Speaking of the roster, this game brings back the big figs from Lego Marvel, allowing for characters like Killer Croc, to look more like their ordinary selves! Another fun change, is that special suits from past games are now part of the characters themselves! No running around the level trying to find suit platforms, change whenever you want! (As soon as you find the suits the first time, that is...) The game is more focused on the DC universe than Batman this time around, which helps make the game more exciting, rather than just playing as Batman for...”
EVE Online

9.0

Average: 6.2

“There's one reason why you should give EVE Online a fair shot - it's different and CCP Games isn't apologizing for it. While the game is notoriously harsh to new players, community integration (particularly joining Player Corporations) is a great help to new players and for many is basically a prerequisite for finding any enjoyment in the experience. PvP is central to the game, particularly the operation of vast player run empires in Null Sec (0.0) Sovereignty wars. To newer players the game can feel clunky, and many of the menus can appear counter-intuitive, but as a player gets more experienced, everything begins to flow much faster, and the game becomes sleek and incredibly in-depth. The sheer amount of ship customization is staggering, and that's only a small part of a game including thousands of solar systems to explore. Fighting isn't always guaranteed, so players do end up spending a lot of time docked, especially in situations where they aren't as experienced or there is not PvE availability....”

“Of course Akane is not great. She is not Naruto ergo she is not a real ninja, if she is not loud wearing orange and can blow a planet then she is not a ninja. Joking aside the image is at least good in sending Akane's job description and from what I read the game has nothing to do with that (Kunoichi are akin to seductress iirc) also cheap platforming? Uggh I'll pass I had to deal with the EA harry potter Psone games, the masters of cheap tricks.”

“Yeah the Story is pretty great, given you enjoyed FSN you should be aware that the sequel Hollow Ataraxia already has a full translation patch made by the nvsqr comunity.”
“While people who collect stars are heavily penalized for dying, as not only are they taken out of the game for some time (which killers also do) but they also lose half of their resource (which killers don't), you have to consider how much faster and more reliable the star route is. With kills, you have to constantly win battles or land on battle tiles, where those seeking stars simply get them every turn. Also, playing safe and not dying is a fundamental goal of PvP, I rarely die if I can help it...”
