Blazing Chrome Review

Those with a dying thirst for run-and-guns, rejoice: JoyMasher and The Arcade Crew have answered your prayers with their new title Blazing Chrome. The genre has been taking a power nap since the days of MC Hammer and Pogs – does this game make up for lost time?

Blazing Chrome Review

The far off year of A.D. 21XX isn’t looking too hot. The Great War happened decades ago, and humankind was on the losing end. As one of the members of the Resistance Camp, Marva teams up with the “converted toaster” Doyle to fight back as humanity’s last hope. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, but the plot is just an excuse to blast away everything in sight.

And blast away you shall. Even on Normal, enemies in this run-and-gun come at you from all angles. Though the goal of each stage is to progress to the end and take down the boss, the sheer amount of fire, lasers, and creatures lunging out at you make this anything but easy. Each character goes down in one hit too, so protecting your hide is of the upmost importance.

Of course, both Marva and Doyle have the proper tools for the job. A default blaster gets the job done, but power-ups dropped by crates can help give these characters an edge. Some are more powerful than others – while lasers and whips are certainly deadly, it’s the Grenade Launcher that levels the playing field. Some may think of this as imbalanced, like the Spread Shot in Contra or the Laser Gun in Metal Slug; however, power-ups disappear if equipped when dying, so think of this mechanic akin to a glass cannon.

Support also comes in the form of Bots and robots. Coming in the form of Attack, Defense, and Speed, these Bots are welcome additions that change things up. Players can also hop into giant robots, which possess additional firepower and can take a handful of hits. Certain areas offer areas that allow players to use these robotic allies’ skills to net additional power-ups, so it pays to be diligent.

Blazing Chrome will take players through six different stages, with players choosing the order of the first four. There’s certainly no shortage of variety – speeding trains, comm towers high in the sky, and snowy outposts round out the lot. The game likes to keep players on their toes too – one section will have players manning a jetpack, while another has players navigating threats on a hoverbike.

Note that although the game is on the challenging side, it is never unfair. During our playthrough on Normal, we were able to restart from multiple checkpoints, making things manageable. Bosses all have tells, and though there can be multiple enemies and threats at any given time, a mixture of memorization and muscle memory will help players come out ahead. Of course, if this proves to be child’s play for the veterans among us, a Hardcore mode can also be unlocked.

Rounding things out is a stellar presentation that combines retro aesthetics with modern touches. The attention-to-detail is striking – everything from the scaling to the digitized voice samples feels like a Neo-Geo or Genesis title from the 90s. It never looked dated though; …

Discover WayOut and Lines X two puzzle games from Konstructors studio

Today we come to you with a review of two games that we had the opportunity to test on Nintendo Switch. Developed and published by the Ukrainian studio Konstructors, WayOut and Lines X could interest you if you like puzzle games and relaxing atmospheres. We tell you more immediately.

Lines X

Released in 2017 on Steam, Lines X has just released on Nintendo Switch, precisely on June 27. Konstructors describes the game as follows: “Lines X is a Numberlink puzzle game that involves finding ways to connect colored tiles in a grid.” For those who do not know the numberlink style puzzle, the studio describes the principle pretty well. Within a larger or smaller grid, you need to connect points in pairs, without ever crossing two paths, and filling the entire space.

There are many games of this type, and Lines X does it particularly well. The game offers a pretty, minimalist interface without frills and goes to the basics. It offers 100 levels with increasing difficulty. If the first ones are easy enough to complete, things will quickly get complicated later, and you will sometimes have to squeeze your brains and arm yourself with patience to finish them. The game can be played both with the stick and in touch mode, and it is possible to turn off the sound effects to better enjoy the soundscape. In terms of design, although being sober by its nature Lines X is still quite beautiful; the background alternates between light, dark, and colorful backgrounds. Music gives a Zen atmosphere to Lines X, making it a perfect game to play in a deckchair, or at the beach on those hot summer days.

Wayout

Also available on Steam since 2016 WayOut will be released tomorrow, July 11, on the Nintendo console. “Flip the entire grid by tapping the tiles in the correct order and find a WayOut for this puzzle. It’s not as easy as it sounds. Casual puzzle players will have to scratch their heads from time to time. Fans more seasoned will find a real treat.”

And indeed, after a quick tutorial and past the first levels, our gray matter will be put to the test. Like Lines X, WayOut presents itself with a rather sober interface. The goal of the game, which seems at first sight simple, is to make all the tiles on the screen white. You can turn them using the stick or by touching the screen directly. Adjacent tiles will also rotate, but not diagonally, and tiles may return to their original state. You will sometimes have to go back and forth to find the tile that will allow you to finish the level. Of course the difficulty increases over the levels, and WayOut includes about sixty of them divided into six chapters. Things will get more complicated as different types of tiles appear through the levels, some of them not allowing, for example, to swap the tiles on two sides. The soundscape of WayOut is, like in Lines X, very zen and conducive to reflection. The only downside we have noted is that the French translations are not that good in the tutorial, but that does not spoil the pleasure of playing WayOut.

The Lord of the Rings Game by Amazon Game Studios in Development


Amazon Game Studios, Leyou, and Middle-earth Enterprises will develop and publish a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game based on The Lord of the Rings.

Set in the Middle-earth portrayed in The Lord of the Rings literary trilogy, this game will be free-to-play, and will launch on consoles and PC. The game is being developed by veteran developers who have worked on Everquest, Planetside, Destiny, Rift, World of Warcraft, and Defiance.

According to Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Game Studios:

“We’re committed to bringing customers games of the highest quality, both with our own original IP as well as beloved cultural pillars like The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien’s Middle-earth is one of the richest fictional worlds in history, and it gives our team of experienced MMO developers – from the same studio developing New World – tremendous opportunity to play and create. We have a strong leadership team in place to helm this new project, and we’re actively growing our team to help build this incredible experience.”

Alex Xu, CEO of Leyou Technologies Holdings, added:

“Bringing Middle-earth to life necessitates having the very best partners, and Amazon’s customer obsession, technology, and talented teams make it the ideal choice for a co-developer and publisher. We believe our combined resources and expertise will result in a beautiful and compelling game that customers will love and play for years to come.”

Fredrica Drotos, Chief Brand and Licensing Officer at Middle-earth Enterprises, also said:

“Who among us hasn’t wanted to take part in an epic adventure. More than 60 years after the publication of The Fellowship of the Ring, we’re delighted that Amazon Game Studios has partnered with Leyou to bring their respective expertise to build a much anticipated game that will immerse us in the beloved, epic world of Middle-earth, envisioned by Professor Tolkien.”

A new Amazon Original TV series based on The Lord of the Rings will also be released for Amazon Prime Video.

Persona 5 The Royal has a new trailer focused on Yusuke Kitagawa

Persona 5 The Royal is an expanded version of the JRPG Persona 5 that was released two years ago for PS4. This updated version will bring to the game a lot of new content that will mix up the gameplay and give a whole new context to the entire story. The changes bring a new character and party member Kasumi Yoshizawa that plays a huge role in the narrative. An extra semester means that late-game events will change, and new social scenes will add more quality time with the cast. In this expanded version, Kasumi Yoshizawa also moves to Tokyo around the same time the protagonist does. She meets him and his friends after they saved her from a suspicious person. Although she is friendly with them, she resents the Phantom Thieves. Kasumi believes their actions would make people suffer, and she believes people should change on their own. This puts her at odds with the new school counselor, who believes the Phantom Thieves will bring the justice that the police couldn’t. Another new character is Takuto Maruki, a part-time school counselor who starts working in Shujin Academy. He can understand peoples’ feelings and always helps them whenever needed. Unlike Kasumi, he views the Phantom Thieves very positively. As he believes they can bring justice and make people happy, despite him not liking their method. Takuto seems to dislike Principal Kobayakawa, as he suspects he doesn’t care about students and has his own agenda.

Persona 5 The Royal – Kasumi Yoshizawa

As the release date gets closer, Developer Atlus is starting to release character trailers, and it is Yusuke’s turn. The clip that you can watch below highlights Yusuke and Ann’s special moves, which sees the former perform some especially cool slashes with his sword. Partner attacks have embraced a new level of absurdity, combining moves you can expect in games like Yakuza series with a pinch of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Persona 5 takes place in modern-day Tokyo where the protagonist, Joker, has transferred to Shujin Academy after being put on probation for an assault of which he was falsely accused. During the course of a school year, he and other students will awaken to special powers, becoming a group of secret vigilantes known as the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. They will explore the Metaverse, a supernatural realm born from humanity’s subconscious desires, to steal malevolent intent from the hearts of adults and take part in battles. As with previous games in the series, the Phantom Thieves fight enemies known as Shadows using physical manifestations of their psyche known as the Persona.

Persona 5 The Royal will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive and it is set to launch on October 31, 2019, in Japan and sometime in 2020 worldwide.
