Early Access All Star: Chronicon

Chronicon is an early access dungeon crawler that takes clear inspiration from Diablo. Lots of fun, super cheap and well worth a look!


Ashen

Ashen

Ashen is one of those games that could be a hit or miss. It seems to have blocky/low polygon and stylistic graphics but may make up for this with smooth game play and an in-depth story. The real-time fighting looks very satisfying - we just want to see how skills, magic, and other aspects may work in this interesting looking world. A little multiplayer would be pretty sweet too.





Dark Souls Remastered 2 - Praise

Dark Souls Remastered – Meta Review – Simply Beautiful

Hey there souls fans, if you aren't out there buying this remaster right now... then I'm sure you are contemplating whether buying this classic remaster is worth it (like I am right now). From the looks of things, it just might be. There is a massive improvement in texture quality and performance with almost everything else staying the same. With this new release massive amounts of people will be playing online (the lack thereof is what made me stop playing), so get in while it's hot. Watch out for LokiAdvanced though or you might just end up with a dagger in your back.


Dragon's Crown Pro

Dragon’s Crown Pro – Meta-Review – Beat-Em Up and Level Up!

It seems like Beat-Em Up games are making a slight comeback with the re-release of Dragon's Crown Pro! If you played it before you are definitely in for a treat with amazing new graphics. If you have not played then you might want to make a double-take as this is way more than just a side scrolling Beat-Em Up game. The in depth RPG elements are what make it great.


Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire – Meta-Review – Open Sea Sequel!

Hey RPG fans, if you still own your PS2 just to play Baldur's Gate or Champions of Norrath, then come back to 2018 because Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire is what you have been looking for. Although you might want to start with the prequel if you haven't played that yet (you don't have to... but it will probably make the game experience better). Not only it have the best RPG elements that give us that nostalgic feeling but you are also the captain of a ship and can sail the ocean! Sounds like a great mix, and other critics agree.



Long Gone Days Military RPG Sweden

Long Gone Days Meta-Review – Amazing Story and Great Fights

Hey folks! This military sytle RPG seems like it has more feels in it than you would think. The gameplay looks pretty solid and there are definitely some fun combat scenes, featuring 2 different kinds of combat (short-range and long range). Check out this game for an awesome indie military style RPG.


AttackOnTitan2

Attack on Titan 2 – Kill Those Titans!

The Attack on Titan 2 game is based on the anime series and features engaging battles with giant humanoid creatures known as Titans. It has a large collection of characters and RPG elements for character development. It seems the game is basically a mix-up of the story told in Attack On Titan season 1 with some season 2 thrown in. From what I can see the game is very fun and had smooth game-play.


Bloodborne Review – From Software – Blood and Guns

I would highly suggest playing Bloodborne (even to those who may not be heavy gamers). The dark and bloody world is enthralling and the combat is beautifully done and very satisfying. Everything in Bloodborne works together and integrates so nicely. So check it out! Don’t be shy!


Simcon, Brochures

Simcon – Rochester Annual Gaming Convention – Tabletop Games

It’s a gaming convention for tabletop games, which means more than just Dungeons and Dragons and Magic the Gathering (although they have events for that too). At this 3 day long convention you can help playtest up and coming games like Ruthless, a sci-fi about an ancient spacecraft, meet members from local gaming studios like Kinsoul Studios, or just hang out with friends and play your favorite games. The convention offers a thorough collection of tabletop games for participants to utilize in the central ballroom (Frederick Douglass Hall this year) or in private rooms if you register beforehand. Don’t worry if you forgot your dice because you can find several vendors selling tabletop supplies, magic cards, button/pins, and cool gaming earrings. Simcon is the longest running gaming convention in New York State and was originally designed by Maren Cooke


Fear Effect Sedna

Fear Effect Sedna Meta-Review – Dead on Arrival

Almost a month has passed since this sequel was released and I haven't heard a single good thing. AButtonGames has yet to give it a go but we are reluctant to do so. It seems that the game suffers from some pretty heavy gameplay issues, over-simplified A.I. patterns, and terrible voice acting. This game is cringy and we haven't even played it yet. If you are a die hard fan I would suggest that you wait for the best deal possible, rent it, or just forget it exists. We have determined that Fear Effect Sedna is Dead on Arrival - or as Game Informer would put it "Dead on Revival".


Titan Quest Remastered Collection

Titan Quest Remastered: Collecters Edition Meta-Review – Not Worth It?

Hey! AButtonGames here to give you this brief summary of the new Titan Quest release for the PS4, Xbox One, and eventually Switch. For the small sum of $120.00 you can get all the collectibles below (We won't be buying after the pretty terrible reviews). It seems that this "Remaster" got a new coat of paint but is still pretty dated and contains some serious performance issues. Take a look and see what the reviews say so far.
