Dark Souls II: Scholar of First Sin

Recently at a friends house I got the chance to play quite a bit of this next-gen remake of a game I never really got a chance to play. Since I finally took the time to sit down and enjoy this well made action-fantasy RPG I thought I would share my feelings with you. If you have never seen or played a souls game allow me to explain a little bit about these games. This is easly one of the most interesting, well rounded, and challenging RPG's I have ever played. It combines interesting gameplay as you run through hordes and hordes of various enemies and challenges as well as an interesting system in which you collect souls from dying creatures which you use to either level or as curenncy to purchase items. Now lets get away from the original stuff and talk about some of the new stuff. With in this new version there not only some very nice visuals but a whole slew of interesting content and plenty of things to do as well as choices to make and areas to explore. Finally there are a few fllaws with this great game such as some of the ai as well as visual glitches I've experienced or the slightly clunky combat which leads me to combat roll off a cliff leading to yet another death and me getting even more pissed off. In the long run I am only nit picking a very wonderful experience for anyone that likes a challenge or is an avid fan of the RPG genre.

Towerfall: Acension

Think of a classic retro platformer sounds creative right said no gamer ever. Now think of a retro platformer that's actually worth playing its an idea that many of us find hard to choke down ever since Braid came out and the markets began to flood with these so called retro style games to the point were we almost thought about blowing are brains out if we saw one more 8-bit man jumping on floating platforms in the middle of absolutely fucking nowhere. Well allow me to break down this wall of hate by telling you about Towerfall a wonderfully designed and very well made retro style competitive 2D platformer. Within this game you pick one of several different colored archers and enter into a map as you attempt to pin your friends face against a wall with an arrow or bounce on their head to blow them up. This game brings back the classic style of sitting next to some friends on a couch ,with its up to four player competitive multiplayer, and screaming at them every time they absolutely obliterate you. There's not much else I can say about this game other than if you enjoy siting down and battleing it out with some good friends in a game of skill then Towerfall: Acension is a game built for you
