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.


Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2

The day is here so run out and grab your copy! Rockstar Games seems to really hit the nail on the head and I don't doubt they will do it again for Red Dead Redemption 2. Who doesn't love a good western shooter!? AButtonGames will be featured in a Twitch live stream by Tacklinator88, so be sure to check it out!

Spyro Reignited Trilogy – Delayed

Release Date: November 13, 2018

Developer: Toys for Bob

Publisher: Activision

Series: Spyro

Genre: Platform Game, Adventure

Platforms: Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch

Delayed!

Toy’s for Bob has recently announced the delay of the trilogy by 2 months. Bad news for those itching to jump right into their childhood nostalgia. The co-head of Toy’s for Bob states: “We’re deeply committed to getting these games right, so we’ve decided to move the release date of Spyro Reignited Trilogy to November 13, 2018.”. With all the work and deep commitment to graphical improvements… we don’t blame them. Yan is hoping the fans will forgive him: “In November when you’re exploring the Dragon Realms, Avalar, and the Forgotten Worlds, we know you’ll agree the extra time was worth the wait.”

AButtonGames Take

I think everybody who owned a Playstation 1 is excited for the Reignition of Spyro (I know I am psyched). Get ready for some charging, burning, and all around awesome dragon shennanigans coming up at the end of 2018. Why can’t it be sooner?! Toys for Bob is recreating not only the original but 3 classic Spyro games including: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. Good news for all of you Xbox and Nintendo owners: It’s also going to be released for you too! This trilogy will be playable for children and also all of you 90s babies who want a little (or a lot) of Spyro nastaglia. 

Game Descriptions

“Spyro the Dragon

Gnasty Gnorc has returned from exile and has unleashed evil magic on the Dragon Realms, trapping the Dragons in crystal and raising an army of Gnorcs. Spyro, with his friend Sparx the Dragonfly, is the only Dragon left who can traverse the six Homeworlds, free the Dragons and save the day!

Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!

Spyro has been brought to the land of Avalar to defeat the evil sorcerer Ripto who has brought war to Avalar’s Homeworlds. Each Homeworld is being held captive by Ripto and his minions, and it’s up to Spyro to defeat them and bring peace to Avalar’s realms.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon

The Dragon Realms are celebrating the ‘Year of the Dragon’ when a mysterious cloaked figure emerges to steal all the Dragon Eggs. Under the spell of the evil Sorceress, an army of Rhynocs is now guarding the helpless eggs in the Forgotten Realms. With new and old friends, Spyro is on a quest to recover the lost eggs, defeat the Rhynoc army and stop the evil Sorceress.”

Look at the differences between the previous games and the new one coming out!

Genre: Role-playing video game

Composer: Marcin Przybyłowicz

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

“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

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.



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.


Destiny 2: Warmind

Destiny 2: Warmind – Meta-Review – More of the Same

Destiny 2: Warmind takes the game to a whole new level! But that 'new' level just happens to be more of the same stuff and actually not new at all. You will get a slough of new gear but if you are playing by yourself then this expansion is a bit daunting. Seems like they made a big PvP improvement though


A Way Out

A Way Out – Best Co-Op Game In A While – Meta-Review

If you are looking for an awesome game to play through with a buddy then A Way Out is the way to go. It's short and sweet and looks like a ton of fun (especially if you've ever seen prison break). You get lots of choices, options, and dynamic gameplay with alternate endings! Of course it's not without some short comings but no game is perfect right? Well take a look at some reviews below and find out a bit more!


Ark Survival Evolved

Ark Survival Evolved Review – Dangerous To Go Alone!

Going from killing harmless Dodos to facing down Alpha Carnotaurs is no easy task, and each new area brings new challenges, new dinosaurs, new tech, and new dangers. The game is one of pure unadulterated survival which you will quickly learn is better faced with others.


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.


SurvivingMars

Surviving Mars – Take it Slow and Steady

This colonizing simulation game looks both difficult and rewarding. I've always been a fan of building things (ask my girlfriend about what I do on Fallout) and trying to survive Mars looks pretty fun. As you can see below, other critics have a pretty positive attitude, and for the lower price category of 40.00 USD it may just be worth picking up and giving it a whirl. Are you up to the task of Surviving Mars?


Devil May Cry HD

Devil May Cry HD Collection – Minimal Remaster, But Still Good

I remember playing the original Devil May Cry as a kid (maybe an oversight by my Mom), and absolutly loving it. The sword and gun combos are fantastic and fun, and Dante is definetly one BAMF. I never got around to playing the 2nd and 3rd games so the this HD collection give me (and everyone else) a chance to do so. As the below reviewers mention, don't expect a miracle from the graphics, and expect some bad camera work, but that doesn't stop the Devil May Cry games from being spectacularily fun!


Vermintide2

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Meta-Review – Smash and Crunch!

If you played Left 4 Dead then get ready for a game that seems to have a lot of similar traits mixed into an RPG shell. This Warhammer sequel displays extremely gory scenes and has very graphical, satisfying kill events. Smash and Crunch by yourself or play online! See what some game reviewers have to say below.
