Astral Shain shows amazing gameplay at the E3

The name Astral Chain may not ring a bell for most of you, but if we say Masakazu Katsura or Takahisa Taura, it’s quite likely that many of you will recognize the creator of ZETMAN and Video Girl AI series and the designer of NieR: Automata. Both of those have worked hand to hand to design the characters and scenarios of the new action title from Platinum Games which gameplay we could see for the first time during Nintendo Direct event at the E3.

Astral Chain is an action adventure where we will play as one of the members of a police special forces unit in the city of Ark, a cyberpunk megalopolis that has been invaded by alien forces. Those aliens arrive at the city through different dimensional portals and your mission will be to fight them and put an end to the invasion. To make this possible, you can freely use living weapons called Legion. Those weapons are linked to you and as you can see in the video they can take different forms and offer you a wide variety of combat possibilities.

In Astral Chain, you will control you and your Legion at once to build incredible combos using both characters in tandem. But there is more than spectacular combats in the game, and as the story progresses you, with the help of your legions, will be able to discover the origin and the secrets of the Astral Plane, the place where the invaders come from.

Aside from the amazing gameplay of Astral Chain, it has also been recently revealed that the game will have a Collector’s Edition when it launches in the West on August 30th. The contents are quite different than the ones in the Japanese collector’s edition and this one will include a 152-page artbook, a CD with a selection of sounds, and a Shikishi art board with an illustration from Masakazu Katsura.

Astral Chain Collector’s Edition

Astral Chain features great graphics, fluid gameplay, and lots of action in an adventure that joins the ranks of the titles coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch. You won´t have to wait too long to be able to play it yourself.

Ravva and the Cyclops Curse Review

A terrible curse has befallen your mom, and it’s up to you to save the day in The Hidden Levels and Galope’s new throwback platformer Ravva and the Cyclops Curse. Featuring graphics and action straight out of an eight bit platformer, does it manage to feel more like a timeless classic or an antiquated relic?

Ravva and the Cyclops Curse Review

Things start out on a sour note right at the offset. A powerful summoner went toe-to-toe with a cyclops lord, but was turned to stone after she did not surrender her powers. Her child, known as Ravva, seeks out to remove the curse and take down the cyclops once and for all.

Ravva packs with it a unique retro aesthetic. The cutscenes, graphics, music, and gameplay would be right at home on an NES cartridge, managing to be nostalgic yet fresh at the same time. What is here is incredibly polished, and manages to make an impression with both its prowess and its personality.

To help Ravva save the day in this platforming adventure, players will be able to utilize one of four different spirits. Each has a different ability; the blue one freezes enemies in their tracks, the red one fires at an angle, the green one breaks certain tiles and deals heavy damage, and the yellow one can be used to find hidden items.

Ravva - Gamers Heroes

All four come in handy and must be used religiously, which is both its greatest strength and its biggest weakness. While it is nice to have this variety, switching between these different options slows the pace of the game down a bit. When there are portals spewing an endless amount of enemies, flying heads roving around, and spikes on almost every surface, getting to the option you need takes a fair bit of time.

As a result, the game can see more of a methodical pace. Early levels are straightforward affairs, with only a bit of backtracking being the worst offense. However, later stages prove to be surprisingly challenging, with timing and positioning of the upmost importance. Ravva takes one hit before dying, and though respawns happen in the same spot with a brief period of invincibility, it can prove to be a tough affair. Losing all of your lives just means restarting to the beginning of the stage, so those who are a bit more green in the genre need not worry.

Those that make it to the end of the title will see everything Ravva and the Cyclops Curse in around an hour and a half. This title never overstays its welcome, despite its difficulty.

Ravva and the Cyclops Curse is a throwback that successfully captures both the aesthetics and the difficulty of titles from the era. Those weaned on the more challenging titles of old will appreciate what this platformer brings to the table.

This review of Ravva and the Cyclops Curse was done on the PC. The game was purchased digitally.

Xenon Racer Review – Gas Drawls

Story 327552389

Ridge Racer was a thing at one point.

 

Never played it before, because I was an F-Zero and Forza man, goddamnit, but Ridge Racer mostly being a PlayStation exclusive was always something I envied, even if it was overshadowed by WipeOut most of the time. Then once I got my hands on Ridge Racer 6, all of that envy was replaced with confusion. What happened to this supposedly great racer I wanted? What does this have to do with anything? Nothing, it’s a vague segue into Xenon Racer.

 

This is the sophomore title from Italian studio 3DClouds, who burst onto the scene last year with All-Star Fruit Racing, which I haven’t played, mostly due to the seemingly shady price-changing tactics that may have been the result of controversial developer PQube. I digress, but Xenon Racer is instead published by underrated Dutch publisher Soedesco, who has been behind the publishing of various overlooked gems. Once again, I digress, but is Xenon Racer going to be joining said list?

 

An in-engine screenshot of Xenon Racer, showing off a mostly-green track toy speeding past tarmac.

 

The year is 2030. A new era of vehicular racing is about to arrive, in the form of flying vehicles, and with it a promising future of high-octane action. How do we celebrate such an exciting concept? Why, by using road-based vehicles instead, in a send-off before the world turns to flying cars. No, really, that’s the plot.

 

It’s exceptionally odd for the premise to be a set up for immense disappointment. I mean, forget blue-balling your audience right from the bat, this is a chastity belt with wheels on it. Still, none of that matters if the gameplay is solid, and it is… most of the time.

 

In typical fashion, you use the triggers to accelerate. If you can keep up with this complex diatribe of information, then you can surely continue with this fact: Drifting gains fuel. Fuel towards what? A meter that allows you to boost up to a maximum of 3 at a time. Also dotted around the many, many tracks, are glowing squares which can also fill up 1/3rd of your boost bar.

 

An in-engine screenshot of Xenon Racer, showcasing a wide track toy racing car driving through sunlit forests.

 

The boost lasts for quite a while, an average of 6-8 seconds depending on your cars stats, and in truth, it does lead to some quite meticulous racing. You don’t completely lose control of your vehicle once you begin to reach blistering speeds of, err… usually 240MPH, so drifting while boosting across lethal hairpins and meanders is intense, it’s cool, and it’s packed with flair.

 

To jump back for a second however, the maximum speed you will reach in these races is a bit of a shame. It’s 2030, the cars we’re driving look and feel like monstrous drifting tanks, the tracks are unbelievably wide and look like they span tens of miles, yet we don’t even break 240MPH? Come on, man, when ultra-track toys from 2005 show your curvy cars up, that’s just embarrassing.

 

That being said, a lot of the car designs are cool to look at, and to watch unravel on the tracks. 3DClouds’ artists must have graduated from the Square Enix School of Visual Design, because every car has hilariously stupid proportions and insane dimensions. They’re all THICC …

Oninaki: Trailer and release date

During Square Enix’s E3 press conference, the publisher showed off the next game from Tokyo RPG Factory, the studio known for I am Setsuna and Lost Sphear. Takashi Tokita (of Chrono Trigger and Parasite Eve) is the creative producer of this classic JRPG-inspired game that promises another unique story.

In a world where Reincarnation means everything, watchers are the ones that will guide the wandering souls to return to the Beyond – the realm of the dead – so that they can continue the cyclical process of reincarnation over again. They serve as keepers of the Living World and the Beyond, severing the bonds that tie the Lost to this world, the souls of those who held back their tears in life still need salvation in death. Kagachi, our protagonist, meets Linne, a mysterious young girl with no memory of her past. While on his journey, you will also meet Kushi, an exemplary Watcher and trusted leader, Mayura, a Watcher with a kind heart, and the malicious Night Devil, a swordsman from a forgotten time who is hunting Linne.

To fight, you bond with and harness the power of Daemons, a special type of Lost Soul who could not be reincarnated. These powerful souls will assist you in battle, with each Daemon representing a different weapon type. You will be able to manage the Daemon’s skills and switch between them in real-time to deal devastating blows to your enemies with unique attacks and power-up skills. There are five different Daemons, each corresponding to the classes found in traditional roleplaying games.

Oninaki gameplay

Do not miss out on this great game; you can find the best prices for Oninaki in our price comparator and enjoy this JRPG. Oninaki will release on Aug. 22 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC.

Ubisoft shows Watch Dogs: Legions for the first time

We all were waiting for it, and Ubisoft didn´t disappoint us. After the recent announcement of Watch Dogs: Legion nay of us were eager to find out what the new installment in the Watch Dogs series had to offer. We only had seen a few screenshots from the game, and we got to know that it will take place in the city of London in a possible not-so-far future after a No Deal Brexit. But now, with the footage of the game published at the E3, we have a much better knowledge about the game, and we can say that Ubisoft is definitely aiming to take the gameplay in the series to a new level.

London looks like the perfect scenario for the game, as it’s a cosmopolitan city with one of the biggest camera surveillance systems in the world. In Watch Dogs: Legion, the city is controlled by Albion, a private organization in charge of the “security”. Their means to control the citizens using riot drones and soldiers do not get along too well with the ideals of DedSec, and it becomes the seed for the creation of a resistance movement.

All this gets reflected in one of the most interesting features of Watch Dogs: Legion, and it´s that you won´t have a specific hero as the protagonist of the story, like Aiden Pearce o Marcus Holloway in previous Watch Dogs installments. Instead of that, you will be able to play as anyone, literally. You can recruit any citizen for DedSec’s cause, and that opens a world of possibilities because every NPC has a unique life. You can switch between the people you have recruited anytime, but you must be careful because there is permanent dead in Watch Dogs: Legion and if the character you are playing dies it will be gone for good.

Watch Dogs: Legion – You could be that granny too!

Watch Dogs: Legion is a high stake bet for Ubisoft. If like they promise, they manage to deliver a game where each character feels unique, we could have a fantastic experience with endless gameplay opportunities in our hands. We will find out if that´s the case as more information about the game is revealed.

Nintendo Direct E3 2019 Review

Story 327385318

Well, that certainly spiced things up. At the end of a rather unexciting E3, Nintendo decided it was a good time to go all out this year, and boy did they bring the heat. In under an hour, Nintendo announced plenty of surprises and updates fans have been hungering for nearly a year. Let’s review what they had to show us and judge how they performed.

Dragon Quest Makes Its Way to Super Smash Ultimate

As promised from the SSBU Invitational, Nintendo had news on the next Super Smash Bros DLC fighter. It was revealed to be a collection of the Dragon Quest heroes! While I have no knowledge of the DQ series myself, fans appreciated the sudden promotional content for DQ11, which will have its remaster on Switch this falls. As an outsider to the series, neat! Hope fans enjoy it!

Luigi’s Mansion 3 Gets The Spotlight

We finally got another home console Luigi’s Mansion game and this entry looks pretty dang ambitious. The main setting takes place in a towering haunted hotel with each room representing a different atmosphere and setting. Some rooms contain unique ghosts and storylines. Luigi’s vacuum arsenal has also been expanded upon, allowing room for some additional strategy during gameplay. Co-operative play with the gelatinous “Gooigi”, a green, gummy-bear like Luigi partner, in addition to an extra game mode is well suited for a party. While no date has been given, you can expect this to be an October release to coincide with the spooky Halloween season, like how PlayStation’s MediEvil remake is launching close to the holiday.

Panzer Dragoon is Resurrected Exclusively on Switch

This really took me off guard since we haven’t got a Panzer Dragoon game since the OG Xbox days. Panzer Dragoon has been revived by Nintendo with a remake of the original built from the ground up. With stunning visuals, orchestral music, and faithful gameplay, fans of the series will relive the enjoyment they had all the way back in 1995. You know what’s even more exciting? It’s coming later this year! Winter to be precise!

No More Heroes III Has Been Confirmed

Travis Touchdown is back with the third mainline No More Heroes game. This time the series is taking a far more science-fiction, futuristic approach and is hitting store shelves on April 2020. Here’s hoping Touchdown withstands the daunting Cyberpunk 2077 launching in the same time frame.

Astral Chain and Daemon X Machina Have Release Dates

The two obscure-but-cool-looking Japanese games have release dates, and both of them are rather soon. Astral Chain, the cyberpunk-inspired action game from PlatinumGames is arriving on August 30th, while Daemon X Machina has a September 13th release. Man, September is getting very crowded now. I hope it doesn’t get more popula—

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is Arriving in September

Well, that certainly doesn’t make things any better. Regardless, Link’s Awakening still looks adorable and even more footage has been unveiled. Details on a collector’s edition has also been revealed, with an amiibo figure coinciding with the game’s release. Players have the ability to create their own dungeons and complete challenges and earn rewards while beating them. Of course, the entire campaign is included in this remake in beautiful HD …

Breath of the Wild Sequel -E3 2019

Story 327350539

Nintendo’s “one last thing to show us” was an absolute shocker. Starting with a creepy atmosphere and familiar cel-shading, we eventually saw Link and Zelda’s Breath of the Wild models come into view. Much of the imagery was unclear, but it seems the enemy won’t be calamity ganon again, but some creature that takes its power and lays siege on the now-peaceful Hyrule. Zelda’s inclusion in the trailer hopefully hints at her having a greater role in the story a la Skyward Sword, but only time will tell. Naturally since this is the first we’ve heard of the game, there was no gameplay or release window. Regardless, we here at Sick Critic are all incredibly excited.
