Week in Review - June 5th - 9th



Welcome back to the weekend and this Week's in Review!

Monday Nick lead off the week with Pox Nora which brought some retro RPG strategy to the PS4.

"What personally makes Pox Nora addicting for me is the collectable card game element. Anyone who has read my reviews over the years likely knows that this genre has long been a favorite of mine, both in physical and video game formats."

Later that day Nick broke back out the VR headset for Age of Heroes VR. He just keeps giving me reasons to get one!

" Age of Heroes VR wears some pretty familiar inspirations on its sleeve. It really tries to harness the feeling of major boss fights from MMOs, all while delivering it in an immersive virtual reality experience. Some aspects of this title work better than others, but the potential here is pretty hard to deny."
- Nick

Starting Tuesday morning off Nick took to the killing fields with Crossout for some multiplayer action. The experience seems to be solid enough and worth looking into!

"Crossout is a pretty solid game, but one that is angled to hit you pretty hard on the microtransactions unless you spend a ton of time with it."
- Nick

Now for something we haven't had in a while, an Anime Review! Robert got to sit down with the latest season of RWBY in which multiple staff members are fans of the series such as Breanna and Richard. Worth watching? Sounds like it! <- Aka I still need to catch up...

"With a voice cast that puts larger productions to shame, an audio engineering department that movie studios should envy, and a knack for nailing openings that few other anime can, RWBY Volume 4 is a welcome addition to any fan's library."
- Robert

Kicking the mid week off is Dark Rose Valkyrie in which Nick took Compile Hearts and Idea Factory's newest entry for a spin.

"There is a nice mix of new and shiny that works nicely with established JRPG norms to create an experience that I enjoyed the majority of the time - but probably won't be for everyone."
- Nick

The afternoon saw my review of Cladun Returns: This Is Sengoku! I don't need many words for this one. It was awesome!

"Cladun Returns is exactly what the series needed in order to make a successful comeback. Originally for the PSP, this newest entry is releasing for both the newer PlayStation handheld as well as the big box that sits in your living room."
- Pierre-Yves

Kicking off thursday morning like royalty I shared my time with Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs which blends multiple styles very well for a good comedic tactical experience.

" Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs is an amazing experience and it's definitely more than the sum of its parts. From the RPG elements to the town and relationship building each piece fits right in beside the other making for a very memorable experience."
- Pierre-Yves

Only adding to the day is another great experience with Mages of Mystralia.

"On a whole Mages of Mystralia is very well build and enjoyable for hours at a time."
- Pierre-Yves

Yesterday started off with a bang with Robert's Review of Victor Vran for the PS4. Having gotten to play it once again was awesome as we both got to dive back into Zagoravia coop styled!

"All in all Victor Vran: Overkill Edition is a spectacular port of a stunning game. Though much of the initial "first experience" is past, revisiting it again after two years is still a thrilling ride."
- Robert

Finishing off the week is my first look at Black the Fall. Nick had already taken a look at it years ago and it was interesting to see how it had evolved since.

"Careful calculated maneuvers even when running are paramount to survival otherwise you won't be guiding him very far."
- Pierre-Yves
