Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Take it slow and your good to go.

If you haven't had a chance to dive into the latest and greatest Rockstar hit, then I suggest going for it now! Rockstar Games seems to really hit the nail on the head with Red Dead Redemption 2. Who doesn't love a good western shooter!? But RDR2 is so much more than that. AButtonGames was previously featured in a Twitch live stream by Tacklinator88.


Respect or Reject

Respect or Reject 2019 – Q1 -Thinking about buying Anthem? Don’t.

Respect or Reject?

Hello Gamers and welcome back to AButtonGames! We’ve been dormant for a while but we are back for a new type of article; our first new piece of Respect or Reject!

We know a lot of gamers (smart gamers) wait to see reviews before running out and buying a game on release day. Bugs need to be hammered out, releases flop, and things just don’t live up to the hype (Ahem, Fallout 76). So we are here to compile a list of the best and worst games of 2019 so far. So here comes the meat, get ready for Respect or Reject!

TL;DR

Respect

  • Apex Legends
  • Slay the Spire
  • Metro Exodus
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • Call of Duty – Black Ops 4

Reject

  • Anthem
  • Fallout 76
  • Vane
  • Crackdown 3
  • Onimusha: Warlords

Fallout 76 – Reject

This is probably the most disheartening and tragic reject on this list. We know that Fallout 76 was not released in 2019 Q1 but we couldn’t exclude such a heavy downfall from this list.


Ghost Of Tsushima

Ghost Of Tsushima

Release date: TBD

Developer: Sucker Punch Productions

Genre: Action-Adventure

Platform: PlayStation 4

AButtonGames Take

Sucker Punch is going a different direction from Infamous, and quite frankly we are excited here at AButtonGames. After the 2018 E3 preview it looks like some awesome stealthy samurai action in feudal japan. The combat looks pretty intricate with emphasis on dodging, parrying, and avoiding damage rather than mindlessly exchanging blows. There has been no official release date and we doubt this will be released in 2018 like originally thought. Look below for Sucker Punch’s game description and some sneak previews.

Description

“The year is 1274. Samurai warriors are the legendary defenders of Japan—until the fearsome Mongol Empire invades the island of Tsushima, wreaking havoc and conquering the local population. As one of the last surviving samurai, you rise from the ashes to fight back. But honorable tactics won’t lead you to victory. You must move beyond your samurai traditions to forge a new way of fighting—the way of the Ghost—as you wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Japan.” –suckerpunch.com

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!

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

Death Stranding

Death Stranding

Release date: TBA

Engine: Decima

Designer: Hideo Kojima

Developer: Kojima Productions

Genre: Action game

Platform: PlayStation 4

Website: kojimaproductions

“Death Stranding is the first game developed by the new Kojima Productions, the studio led by the renowned game designer Hideo Kojima. This will be his first post-Metal Gear project after his long and public breakup with his former employer, Konami. This is also the first game the designer is publicly working on after his final Konami-backed project, Silent Hillsgot canceled.”

“Death Stranding is a game that raises so many questions. What’s going on? Why is Norman Reedus naked? Why does he have a baby in his throat? You know, the normal questions. With every trailer that Kojima nad co put out, there are more questions added to that list, and that’s just one of the reasons it’s one of the most highly anticipated games of all time.

What we do know is ‘explosion in your adrenal gland’ exciting. Hollywood stars in major roles, creator Hideo Kojima’s first chance to experiment since his massive Metal Gear Solid series. The use of Decima, the same game engine that super-powered open-world adventure Horizon Zero Dawn. We’ve scoured the internet to bring you everything we can from official interviews, trailers, and even cryptic tweets and Instagram posts, so you can obsess over every clue until Kojima is ready to tell us more. ” –gamesradar.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

July Top 10 – That Blue Erinaceidae Rockets to the Top

Hey there gamers, July has come and gone and it sure went by fast. If you missed all the new game releases, don't worry because AButtonGames has your back. We have taken the liberty of compiling a list of the top 10 games for each console!


May & June Game Releases – 21 Days of Games!

Hey there gamers! Over the past month or so there have been quite a few game releases included a good host of games released today (6/5/2018). Some of them are hot and some are... not so much. Bigger titles can be found on meta reviews but we want to cover some smaller titles or games we just otherwise missed!



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.


Detroit Become Human

Detroit: Become Human – Meta-Review – Do Androids Dream?

It's finally here! Detroit: Become Human is the epic looking cinematic journey game akin to games like Life is Strange, Heavy Rain, and Beyond Two Souls. Made by Quantic Dream we expect some great things from it, and it seems like it might have (mostly) fulfilled those expectations. It seems the story was written with a lot of cliche characters, cheesy monologues, and heavy handedness that you will have to just get over. However, we will definitely see the heavy improvements of texture quality, facial animations, and overall graphical excellence that might make Detroit: Become Human worth the cash.
