Thanks to all of you that have taken the time to look at our work. For your awesomeness we present 3 reviews this weekend. The first of which will be our very first Xbox game. The game is called Dead Pixel. Pyrotek will be reviewing it and I will have no say in how he writes his review. Liltle Pook will be putting out a review of some game. I don’t know what game. I will be reviewing the IGF Pirate Kart. A big pile of indie games that are varying in quality. So this weekend will be hectic.
Hi, I’m The Pyrotek. as you can probably guess I love video games, I play on almost any console, from the 360 to even a NES. I’ve been playing from before I could read, which was very hard. I enjoy playing FPS and RPGs the most on any system, although retro RPGs are my favorite. Liltle Pook is my twin brother and so we have played a lot of the same games, although we have different tastes. I own a lot of systems, xbox 360, an ok (edited by sfiodsh on his way better PC) PC, N64 (one of my all time favorites) Wii (don’t even know why), NES (love retro) SNES, Playstation, and almost every handheld, so if you want me to review a game just say and I probably have that system. Some of my all time favorite games are Fallout 3, Final Fantasy, Paper Mario, Super Mario Bros. 3, Rayman 2, Halo 3 and Halo Reach and Star Fox 64. I also love online MMOs and anything that you can play co-op. so that’s me, see you around.
Edge. An indie title that came out in August of this year. The game is a very quirky game thanks to the great pieces of music, its art style, and the gameplay.
The biggest thing that makes the game unique is its gameplay. The player controls a cube that can go in 4 directions from 1 spot. Pretty simple ,right? Now add in the fact that the view is isometric and that the cube is very good at obeying physics. What do you have now, a very fun, but challenging game. I had many instances where I pressed a button to make the cube go one way, but because I pressed the button once too many times the cube kept going that way and died. The game also has a few fun things that it does with its locked camera. Using the mini map is a great way to find the games collectables (prisms). But because Edge has a locked camera, you can’t always see these prisms, so by using the mini map to guide you there are various ways to find and get prisms. All of the levels are fun and exciting in their own way.
Edge has a small, but enjoyable selection of music that is sounds like it is a perfect match for Edge. There is a very retro feel to the music even though there are no bleeps or bloops. The levels even feel like they have matching music. The darker levels have a bit more of a dark tune to them, while light levels have a more cheerful tune (this one is totally my opinion, I doubt anyone else feels this way).
Edge is an awesome game with a great follow through on its concept. The levels are very polished and the music is outstanding. Even though there are only 48 levels, the game will bring you back to play levels again and again. There is also one piece of DLC already out for the game, giving a few more level to play with and the game is on the iPhone app store.
Edge is a retro styled game that had a new feel for me. It uses a isometric moving system which felt a little weird at first but go you got used to it fast. The game was easy to figure out and was fun trying to do all the puzzles, but sometimes it got annoying like when you couldn’t see the prism(something that ups your score if you find it). One problem was that you couldn’t change your view so you would sometimes fall and you would be like WTF??? However overall its a casual fun game that anyone would like.
Wow, in just five days the internet has already brought us 14 views. To most people that is tiny, but to us it is awesome. I also checked that my going between the dashboard and the blog wasn’t giving us views. I didn’t cause so I would like to thank all of you that took a bit of your time to click on our site.
So our first review will be posted this weekend. The game we are reviewing is EDGE. It is an indie, puzzle title that focuses on a block that the player can move, using the arrow keys, in an isometric view. So far it is a lot of fun and I can’t wait to put up the full review.
If you want to buy the game go to steam and find it.
Thanks for taking a look,
So I’m one of those people that isn’t very good at most games but still loves to play! (GO NOOBS!!) I have been playing since I was about 3 or 4 when my Mom’s friend got me my amazing Game Boy Color!!! Then when i was 6 I got and N64 and that was fun (Super Smash Bros. FTW). I got more advanced video game tech, as time progressed. I love to play games, and I love TV and ANIME! Whoo! Haha, because of my new laptop I’ve been doing that lately and its been awesome. So anyone who also loves anime I gladly blog about that too!
Hi, I’m Sfiodsh,
I’m the person who wrote the About page. I’m also the planner of our blog. I’m a big gamer like most of our other writers. I play for about 9 to 11 hours a day. Each day I will either play on my computer or my Xbox. I’m not a console fag or a pc fag, I just love to play video games.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our blog. We hope to put out content every weekend, so if you like what you see follow us.
EDIT: God Damn it Liltle Pook. Ok so I have been playing since I got my Gameboy Advance when I was 4 years old. That day changed my life forever, it took me from a boring kid to a gamer that started to love video games. I then went to play all sorts of video, tabletop, and card games. It has been an awesome ride and now I want to share my perspective with the world!
This is the first post on the blog and I’m really excited! I really hope we get some views and followers. We really hope to see that people care about our posts. I can’t wait for this to get started.
Liltle Pook and Sfiodsh
