Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma Volume 1 Review

Afro Samurai 2 is without a doubt, one of the worst games I’ve played in my time here at Mouse N Joypad, and I played Cricket Captain 2015.  The combat encourages endless button mashing.  Boss battles aren’t difficult or interesting.  The story doesn’t even get out of bed. Characters are emotionless and say their lines with discontent that only unpaid interns could provide.  On top … Continue reading Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma Volume 1 Review

Cross of the Dutchman Video Review

Cross of the Dutchman is simultaneously a unique and imaginative experience, but stops itselfs short of the greatness it could’ve had.  It’s fun swinging a giant 7 foot sword around while sending enemies flying, but it becomes repetitive due to lack of diversity.  The character of ‘Big Pier’ provides a refreshing atmosphere and lore, where like Robin Hood or King Arthur, the story becomes blurred … Continue reading Cross of the Dutchman Video Review

Skyshine’s Bedlam Video Review

Skyshine’s Bedlam is without a doubt a game tactical-RPG fans should pick up.  It’s a tough journey through an uninhabitable land of failed transhumans, mutants, and marauders, in a sandy world reminiscent of Fallout.  While I found it extremely disappointing to see that the developers favored the gameplay over the story, you can’t blame them when the strategy is so apace.  It rewards those who … Continue reading Skyshine’s Bedlam Video Review

In Between Video Review

In Between, like its name suggests, is in between my recommendations.  The puzzles are expertly crafted, offering a great balance of level fairness and precise timing.  The story’s presentation is impressive and offers a deep experience with a minimalist presentation of hand drawn artwork.  My biggest problem is that the game is simply too jaded to be declared enjoyable, offering a desolate and hopeless look at … Continue reading In Between Video Review

Seagate Game Drive and Plantronics Rig LX Video Review

This week, two new pieces of hardware were sent to Mouse n Joypad for review; Seagate’s 2 Terabyte 3.0 External Drive for the Xbox One and 360, and Plantronic’s Rig Flex LX Gaming Headset.  Trevor got to sit down with both to try them out.The Rig Flex LX is a great entry level headset with interchangeable microphones; one focused on providing clear in-game audio and … Continue reading Seagate Game Drive and Plantronics Rig LX Video Review

Icy Video Review

Icy is a monotonous slog through an uninspired and paper-thin game.  Not only is the game a chore to sit through, but it’s buggy on top of everything else.  There are some decent plot points and adequate revelations to this game, but it’s all marred by Icy’s complete lack of effort.  There isn’t one visual element in this game that has more than one frame, consisting … Continue reading Icy Video Review

Evoland 2 Review

Improving vastly over the previous installment, Evoland 2 is a must-play for fans of action RPGs.  The game’s world is rich with backstory, the characters are entertaining and the original content is far more enjoyable than I ever imagined.  The game is, however, buggy, and you will need to restart the game a few time.  Small patchable flaws aside, this game is a thoroughly enjoyable … Continue reading Evoland 2 Review
