Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments Review Elementary! - PSLS

Posted: 30th September 2014 - 17:37

"A classic work of literature can translate poorly into a video game simply because of the many nuances and tones of the story. Characters have to be multi-faceted and memorable, and situations cannot feel unnatural or shallow. Players have to be entertained like they were when reading the book, and the environment has to be familiar and complex. The classics have to be done very well and done with respect, or else they will be judged harshly. Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments breezes through the hurdles of a classic work transformed into a video game with unexpected charm and intelligence." - PSLS

Destiny: A Case Study in Big Budget Hype and Disappointment

Posted: 30th September 2014 - 17:19

Bungie didn't just promise us the world, they promised us a galaxy. The developers' first post-Halo IP was hyped to the point it could never possibly fail, by the press, developers, publishers, and fans. An exciting new series from the creators of Halo with the full backing of a huge publisher - why wouldn't you be excited? Bungie didn't help temper expectations either. Bungie COO Pete Parsons said in an interview last year: "We like to tell big stories and we want people to put the Destiny universe on the same shelf they put Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, or Star Wars."

Natural Doctrine - PS4 Review | Chalgyr's Game Room

Posted: 30th September 2014 - 17:16

Chalgyr's Game Room writes: At a glance, Natural Doctrine should be a title that I immediately fall in love with. I love the RPG and strategy genres, and when they are blended together, I spend hours upon hours considering how to best level up my characters and approach the tactical situation. This dates back to older titles such as Shining Force and Warsong, but also newer games such as King's Bounty and Fire Emblem. Natural Doctrine does some interesting things but somehow manages to make a challenging title that misses the mark in enough places to hold it back. It is a shame, because I was coming into this hoping and even expecting to love Natural Doctrine, but in the end I only found myself liking it - and I suspect I am the target audience, so others may not be so forgiving.
