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.


Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077

Release date: TBD

Engine: REDengine

Designer: Mike Pondsmith

Developer: CD Projekt RED

Genre: Role-playing video game

Composer: Marcin Przybyłowicz

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Website: https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/

“In Cyberpunk 2077, the player will be thrown into a dark future. The metropolis of Night City is a stage set to tell the tale of one individual, raised on the streets, who tries to lift himself up from the gutter and find a way to survive amongst boostergangs and megacorporations in a city of filth and sin. Drugs, violence, poverty and exclusion haven’t disappeared by 2077, as people stayed they were for centuries – greedy, closed-minded and weak. But not only ghosts of the past trouble mankind, but new issues have appeared. Psychos go on rampages and the streets are filled with junkies addicted to a new form of entertainment – the braindance, a cheap way to experience the emotions and stimuli of someone else, someone living a more exciting life.” –siliconera.com

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Engine: Unreal Engine

Writer: Kazushige Nojima

Designer: Tetsuya Nomura

Developer: Square Enix Co., Ltd.

Genre: Action role-playing game

Platform: PlayStation 4

Update

“They don’t have 4 years of work, they have 2. The announcement that square was taking the game away from Cyberconnect2, they didn’t take it away and continue it, they started it again because cyber connect’s work was just so useless and not far enough along, but still far enough along that remaking it was faster than refactoring it… (it wasn’t in a good state at all),” Tsukasa explains.

It remains unclear if the entirety of CyberConnect 2’s work has been scrapped, or if parts of the mechanics and assets developed remain part of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. We imagine it’s the latter given the title’s presumed size and scope.”

Description

“For many years, people around the world have asked me “Will you ever remake FINAL FANTASY VII?” For many years I gave the same answers and on a personal level, having made the original FINAL FANTASY VII, did I really want to spend so many years making the same game?

With FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, we have the opportunity to go beyond the story, world and experience of FINAL FANTASY VII in ways we’ve always dreamed of – from the depths of Midgar to the skies above the Planet. The multi-part format enables us to expand the original story and turn it into an epic experience for fans and new gamers alike.

This past weekend at PlayStation Experience we were thrilled to present more of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE. It was great to see so much excitement when we surprised everyone with the first gameplay footage and it was a treat for us to show that development is going well, and further along than perhaps many had realised. Just like when we revealed the announcement trailer at E3 earlier this year, we like surprising you.

One thing that we wanted to be clear about during this weekend to accompany the new trailer was the scale of this project. We wanted to tell you this now and not in the future so that you’d share our vision for what we want to deliver. The biggest reason why we haven’t done a remake until now is because it’s a massive undertaking to reconstruct FINAL FANTASY VII from the ground up with the current technology. Producing a proper HD remake of FINAL FANTASY VII that maintains the same feeling of density of the original would result in a volume of content that couldn’t possibly fit into one installment.

We’ve seen everyone’s comments and reactions to the news that FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE will be a multi-part series and many have speculated correctly as to the reason why we have made this decision. If we were to try to fit everything from the original into one remake instalment, we would have to cut various parts and create a condensed version of FINAL FANTASY VII. We knew none of you would have wanted that.

I hope that by explaining a little more about our design decisions that you can appreciate the size of this project and what we have planned for this remake. Going beyond the scale and depth of the world, narrative and gameplay from the original to deliver something that feels familiar yet new. As I said before, we like delivering surprises.” –Yoshinori Kitase

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.
