Chivalry 2 Review

Nearly ten years after its original entry, Torn Banner Studios’ Chivalry 2 is here to bring us more medieval madness. Is the sequel a worthy investment, or should you just stick to the first game? Check out our review and find out.

Chivalry 2 Review

Chivalry 2 starts by recommending the tutorial, which you 100% want to do. Here they explain a bit about the two factions: Agatha and the Mason Order. There is some story and lore, but it boils down to red versus blue in knightly combat. It is chaotic, messy, and can be really fun when you aren’t getting blasted by archers. The developers tried to capture just how deadly a medieval knight battle would be, and they nailed it for the most part. If you can’t handle quick, sometimes frustrating deaths, this game will not be for you.

Chivalry 2 mainly focuses on melee combat with an emphasis on counters and timing. You have three basic types of attacks: a stab, an overhead swing, and swipe attacks. You can combo into different attacks or just spam swipe, which most people do. Outside of weapon swings, you can jab and kick to interrupt players and open up their defenses. It can work great in a one-on-one fight, but you are rarely in a one-on-one. Game modes have between 40-64 players, making it the very definition of chaotic combat. Expect to be backstabbed, teamkilled, and set on fire from behind.

There are a few different types of weapons to choose from as well. You start off with basic longswords, shields, pikes, and bows. As you gain levels, you unlock new classes and new weapons for your classes. While you are encouraged to stay as one class to unlock their top weapons, switching it up will be necessary at times, depending on the map. You can also pick up enemy weapons after they die, allowing you to try new ones without changing classes. The only downside to the class system is that they have a specific selection of weapons. For instance, a heavy knight can’t start with a bow or a two-handed spear, but does have access to the shield.

Archer babys

Speaking of bows, let’s talk about archers and how much of a baby you are if you play ranged in a melee game. You are basically admitting that you have no skill in combat and have to sit in the back lines praying you don’t engage anyone directly. If you can’t tell, I hate archers in this game, and I truly believe they should be removed. They are limited to how many can be spawned, but it isn’t enough. The only ranged combat I want to see is knights throwing their weapons at each other.

Eight maps are available at launch, with another one coming “soon.” While this seems like a solid number, rounds are swift and you will see them all within a few hours. You have two types of modes: Team Deathmatch and Attack and Defense. Team Deathmatches can vary from 100-300 kills, meaning that matches don’t last long. The objective-based ones run longer – unless the defense holds. One downside is if you run out of time but are still pushing the objective, you lose. It’d …

George RR Martin Talks Elden Ring in New Interview


A recent interview with author George RR Martin sheds more insight into the world of FromSoftware and Bandai Namco’s Elden Ring.

Martin stated that though he has played games in the past, he is not a huge video gamer. His work on the game was done years ago, stating that games take a while to develop. The development team wanted a world to set the game in, letting Martin step in with the worldbuilding aspect.

You can watch the interview segment below (courtesy of Aegon Targaryen):

George RR Martin on Elden Ring

Elden Ring will allow players to create their own protagonist as they explore its open world with mechanics like its horseback riding. A number of dungeon-like ruins are in place, and composer Yuka Kitamura was brought on to write the soundtrack.

The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on January 21, 2022.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade: Episode INTERmission Review

A little more than a year after its original release, it’s now Yuffie’s time to shine with the DLC for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Is Episode INTERmission worth installing the 100+ GB JRPG once more, or should you just leave it be?

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade: Episode INTERmission Review

Episode INTERmission begins with Yuffie arriving in the Midgar slums to meet up some members of Avalanche. When she shows up, she makes a big ol’ scene and introduces herself, only to find her contact hasn’t arrived yet. From there, you have to travel through the slums and find them. Yuffie’s main goal here is to steal materia from Shinra, but she needs help to do it. You arrive right after Cloud falls in the Shinra reactor, so things are a little bit hectic. Eventually, you find your contacts, but it isn’t Tifa or Barret – it’s another group within Avalanche.

Here you are introduced to a bo staff user named Sonan, who serves as your partner and ally. Sonon is much like Red, in that you can’t control him in combat directly. You can give him commands, but you can’t use him yourself. He and Yuffie are Wutai, and both of them have beef with Shinra. You then get a little bit of time to explore the slums, get new materia, do side quests, and play mini-games before going into Shinra HQ. If you do everything, you are looking at about five hours worth of content in all.

ff7 remake intergrade review honest

Yuffie is an interesting character to play as. She can do both ranged and melee combat, really excelling at both. Much like a ninja, she moves fast, dashes around, and does a lot of jumping attacks. Her primary weapon is a shuriken that can be thrown or used in melee attacks. If you throw it, you can use elemental attacks from a range, keeping Yuffie out of any real danger. I did run into a couple of fighters where I kept bouncing up and down with her over and over. I was doing damage, but it was really weird looking. Overall I am happy with how Yuffie plays and hope they don’t change much in the next game.

A new feature in this little DLC is its synergy attacks. You can pair up with Sonon and combine attack gauges to use combo attacks that dish out massive damage and inflict large amounts of stagger. I’m not sure why, but you need to press a button to make this activate in combat; you should start off in synergy mode and press a button to turn it off. A couple of fights have really minor downtimes that reset your synergy, which seems pointless because you’ll just pop it again. Honestly, this seems like the type of thing they will cut in the next game, which sucks because it is very beneficial. Alternatively, maybe people will only be able to synergize with Yuffie; it’s too soon to tell.

There is also a new mini-game called Fort Condor. The game itself seems like practice for the big battle at the fort next game, but it’s actually enjoyable and addicting. The concept is simple: two players fight each other, with whoever taking the enemy …

Series creator Dan Salvato sits down for a deep dive in the following video, giving all would-be club members an overview of the world of Sayori, Natsuki, Yuri, and Monika. This release will feature high-definition visuals, along with new features and content.
