Muse Dash Review

Packing two button controls and tons of tunes, PeroPeroGames and XD have entered the rhythm game genre with their new title Muse Dash. The premise might be simple, but does it have enough to attract those looking for a challenge?

Muse Dash Review

To add some pizazz to this game, players will guide one of three girls on their journey to a high score. Taking control of Rin, Buro, or Marija, the ultimate goal is to navigate through a number of different threats using just the “F” and “J” keys on the keyboard. This covers all forseeable angles though – the “J” button hits all enemies and projectiles on the ground, while “J” allows each character to fly in the air and dish out justice.

It sounds pretty simple, and it can be on easier songs. There are some wrinkles, such as Gemini enemies that require both buttons to be pressed at the same time and buzzsaws that move along the ground. There are also “Sheets” that require a button to be pressed down and bosses that require a rapid fire button press, but it’s nothing overly complex. However, what you see is what you get here, and it is easy to pick up and play.

Of course, with this being a rhythm game, all songs are synced up with the enemy patterns. This works for most songs – there’s the occasional outlier that has a mismatched song chart, but those with a keen ear will be able to come ahead. Those who can recognize patterns should skip the Easy and go straight to Hard – the former setting borders on the side of pandering with its ease of play.

In true rhythm game fashion, players will be able to choose from a number of different songs, and then are graded based on their performance. Timing is important, as it factors greatly into one’s overall score. It also pays to keep your HP up – taking on enemies and fire without defending yourself lowers your health and your final score. There are leaderboards too, so those with a competitive edge will enjoy rising the ranks.

Just be warned that Muse Dash can be a serious grind. A level system determines the new song unlocks, and one can unlock songs until they are at level 55. With backgrounds and enemies repeating quite a bit with songs, expect to see the same skins multiple times. A more lenient grind, along with a bit more variety, would have made this a bit easier to swallow.

The same goes with unlocking the different characters. There are some skins and characters (some fairly risque) that can be yours if you collect a set amount of objects, but this can take a while. Each skin and character comes with some modifiers, but don’t expect anything game-changing.

So the ultimate question is: How is the music? Those with a taste for poppy techno will enjoy their time, as there is little else. Expect to see some Engrish, songs with Chinese names, and weird titles like “Pancake is Love.”

Muse Dash has solid rhythm mechanics buried beneath a serious grind. Those that don’t mind a bit of repetition will enjoy their time, but get ready to pay your …

Attack on Titan 2 : Final Battle, Trailer and launch

Koei Tecmo has shared a brand new trailer to celebrate the launch of Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle. This game from developer Omega Force, comes as a massive expansion for Attack on Titan 2. You can find two versions of it. One is an upgrade for those that already own the base game, and the other is a full pack that includes both. Taking the core experience of Attack on Titan 2, which released early last year across multiple platforms, Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle picks up where the last one left off at the end of Season 1 of the show and continues with Season 2 and 3 storylines, but it also comes with a new narrative of the anime’s Season 1.

You’ll get to interact with all the big names from the Attack on Titan cast, with the ability to increase and rank up your friendship with each one of them depending on your dialogue choices and the side-quests you complete. Boosting these bonds can also open up new abilities and buffs in combat, adding an extra incentive to run around and seek out each character.

In Character Episode mode, gamers will follow the Season 3 storyline across three different timelines: the Scout Regiment, 104th Cadet Corps, and the Warriors – witnessing pivotal plot points through the eyes of key characters. In Territory Recovery mode, aspiring commanders can create their own dream team, using any of the 40+ playable characters in the roster to venture outside of the walls and fight to claim the land back for humanity.

A wealth of equipment is supplied to the Scouts to tackle all shapes and sizes of Titans. The tried-and-tested Slashing Gear uses blades to deliver serious damage to body parts. Those who prefer long-distance attacks can instead equip the deadly Shooting Gear; with two guns that deal quick-fire damage. Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle features a fresh array of weapons, including Thunder Spears and a Gatling Gun, not to mention Omni-Directional Mobility gear that will send you swinging from rooftops to slice enemies with your trusty blade.

Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle is available now for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Gears 5, updated Escalation Mode detailed

Gears of War series‘ multiplayer has never been too complex, but things are about to change. When Gears 5 launches in September we are in for a lot of novelties, but the changes to Escalation multiplayer mode are to be among the most interesting we have seen fro the franchise because they aim to take multiplayer gameplay to a next level. In a recent blog post, developer The Coalition has revealed everything about their upcoming title’s competitive mode.

Escalation game mode was present in other installments of the series, but its mechanics have been reworked for Gears 5, and as you can see in the video it´s now more challenging and compelling than ever. Two teams of five players compete for domination in a match where they earn points for controlling three different locations. If a team manages to control the three of them at once, they immediately win the round, and the first team to win seven rounds wins the match.

The most noticeable change and probably the one with will have a most severe impact on the gameplay is the limited amount of respawns. You will have five of them at the start, and you will earn one more each round, but it´s up to you to decide how and when to use them. It´s quite obvious that this change adds the possibility of winning a game just by wiping the enemy team completely, something that even if difficult, wasn’t possible before. This will add a new layer of strategy to the Gears 5, and it’s a new factor to be considered when deciding to push for a victory during a match, forcing both teams to keep track of their available respawns.

Gears 5 – Respawn window

That’s not the only change Escalation mode will see. Respawn timers will progressively be reduced as the match progresses, allowing players to return to the fight faster and faster. Also, after each round, both teams will be able to choose where to place a weapon, upgrade one on the field, activate new loadout options, or even disable an enemy weapon placement for three rounds. From the half time onwards, weapons won’t despawn, and the battlefield will become more dangerous the more Escalation rounds play out. These new features will create gameplay dynamics in which reading your opponents, adaptation, and counter-plays are paramount if you want to achieve victories.

Gears 5 – Weapon Placement

Gears 5 will launch on September 10th for Xbox One and PC. All these new changes are going to be a significant change in the multiplayer games for the franchise. We will have to wait to see if players are happy with them, but they look like a big step in the appropriate direction.

Stranger Things Season 3 No Spoiler, Spoiler Review

Story 331817134

This review is written in two parts: the first part is a no spoiler review and the second a spoiler-filled rant fest. Make sure you don’t read the second part unless you’ve already watched the whole season.

It’s been almost two entire years since we were graced with Stranger Things 2. I figured the third season would have come much sooner than it actually did, but I guess we’re all wrong occasionally. So, Stranger Things 3 ⁠— what kind of animal (more like monster) are we dealing with here? First, let me start off with the safe Stranger Things Season 3 no spoiler review.

Stranger Things Season 3 No Spoiler Review

 

Stranger Things 3 cast

Stranger Things Season 3 is beautiful, shocking, colorful, harrowingly suspenseful, fully engrossing, satisfying, and devastating. There were a lot of storytelling decisions throughout this season that I wasn’t expecting. At the same time, there were some familiar tropes and plot points that were repeated from the previous season. Though not necessarily a bad thing, it did rob this season of a little originality. Even so, I thoroughly enjoyed our third trip to Hawkins, Indiana.

Hawkins Is Brighter Than Ever

 

One of the first standout impressions that hit me as the episodes blazed by was the bright, colorful aesthetic of this season. While the first two seasons were predominantly visually dark, the third season is full of a more cheery palette. You’ve got neon greens, hot pinks, stunning yellows, and much more, all of which remind you that this series is set in the 1980s.

Stranger Things Season 3 Kids

Just like previous seasons, Stranger Things 3 wants you to embrace the era  from its real 80s music tracks to the film references and common storytelling tropes, this show is confident as hell in what it’s trying to accomplish. Releasing the season on Independence Day makes perfect sense for the show, as the vibe of the show fits the holiday quite nicely (some of the show even takes place on July 4). It led to some strong set pieces, where some of the most critical action took place.

Your Favorite Squads Are Back

 

I won’t go into specifics, but there are some new pairings (I’m not talking romantic) of beloved characters that hadn’t been explored yet. While time-tested friendships, such as Jim Hopper and Joyce Byers, are developed further, characters like Eleven get some new interactions that will leave viewers smiling like dinguses. Stranger Things Season 3 shines in that it doesn’t retread the same character narratives; it gives new arcs and character growth.

You’ll meet some new faces throughout the eight-episode season that you’ll fall in love with and others you’ll grow to hate. One thing I noticed (particularly on my second watch-through) was that the actors were more animated this season. This is the most obvious in David Harbour’s portrayal of Jim Hopper, who’s quite frequently yelling like a madman. It’s just one of the dozens of instances where characters’ actions lead to some great laugh-out-loud moments. In the end, it’s the characters that keep me invested in the best (personal opinion) of all the Netflix Originals.

Netflix Originals Got Nothing on Stranger Things

 

How’s the plot this time around? Well, I think Stranger Things

Spider-Man: Far From Home Review – Far From Tired

Story 331817133

Over the past decade, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has stolen the spotlight in Hollywood, generating literally billions of dollars in the box office in addition to an incredible amount of fans of all kinds. Most recently, the MCU reached its theatrical peak with Avengers: Endgame, which delivered the most epic climax and most satisfactory conclusion out of all the Marvel films… at least in my eyes. Since the Endgame dust had settled, I was skeptical if Spider-Man: Far From Home was even worth a watch in theatres. I lacked the appetite for another epic adventure with the signature Marvel branding, thus, I expected another tired, soulless Hollywood blockbuster like Captain Marvel. Fortunately, this was anything but Captain Marvel and shines a promising light on the future of the franchise.

One of the most amicable aspects of the film was the tone. From the dialogue to the pacing, and even the narrative structure, the film mildly meandered its way to the ending. The actors seemed to be covering their lines for the second or third time, stammering and stuttering in an apparent, yet subtle way. A major plotline in the story is actually Peter Parker struggling to express his feelings to MJ. The camerawork pays close attention to both Peter’s and MJ’s faces when they encounter each other. Their eyes wrestle away from each other and Peter often finds excuses to either join together or separate. It evokes a starkly honest tonality in the character dynamics. Similar can be said for most high school characters.

Beyond Peter and MJ, the cast behaves with an unusual realism often lost in a majority of action blockbusters. The most recent example I could think of outside of Far From Home would be Endgame, but that died off when it was forced to become expository when detailing the Time Heist. I don’t recall many lines sticking out as something no real person would say other than the obviously silly jokes tossed in for audience reaction. Even the moronic chaperones had credibility, as many high school students could relate to the chaperones not being the brightest bulbs in the closet. As a result, the humor is greatly enhanced and often made me loudly chuckle. One thing that isn’t credible is the fact a New York public school could afford a multinational voyage in Europe. Perhaps Stark Industries awarded a grant?

Refreshingly, the story wasn’t predictable. I could not foresee a single beat of the plot, except for one twist as I had knowledge of a particular character beforehand. Those unaware would have no idea who the villain is until it is revealed, which results in an enthralling mystery that keeps the audience engaged. Speaking of the villain, I absolutely adored the first battle sequence directly between Spider-Man and the main antagonist. How he psychologically torments Parker coupled with the internal dilemma Parker faces donning the Spider-Man name delivers a terrific event in the film and stands out as one of my favorite moments in the MCU, period.

One of the weaker elements of the film would perhaps be the action. It’s naturally very challenging to stand out in a medium riddled with ambitious action movies. With this perspective, the action in Far From
