Too Much Too Fast? – My review of Assassin’s Creed III

420809_10150595213037950_97737872949_9207441_209231097_n-noscaleFor a couple of months I’ve owned Assassin’s Creed III and it has taken me until now to play it. I figured that it would be hard for Ubisoft to produce another Assassin’s Creed game that could surpass the likes of two through Revelations. I finally decided to give it a go and provide all of you my public display of affection, so here is my review of Assassin’s Creed III.

I found myself confused upon starting Assassin’s Creed III, why did Desmond look different? Where are they going now and how is this continuing from Revelations? There was allot of questions that were being thrown around and I wasn’t sure if I was going to get any answers. I supposed that all questions were to be answered as I progressed through the game.

I had a lot to learn. Continue reading

NES – RC Pro AM

250px-RC_Pro_Am_coverToday is turn for Insert-Controller’s first ever retro review and it’s not going to be the usual retro games like Super Mario Bros. Or Legend of Zelda, more like the isometric racer, RC Pro AM.

RC Pro AM is a competitive combat racer developed by Rare Ltd in 1988 for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Family Computer (Famicom), the game was published by Nintendo and was ported to Gameboy in 1991 called Super RC Pro AM, shortly after came a sequel in 1992 for the Sega Megadrive which was basically an enhanced version of RC Pro AM.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The_Elder_Scrolls_V_Skyrim_coverNow I know I’ve been saying I’m going to write a review for Skyrim for quite some time, and I think after somewhat of a binge it is time to get it reviewed.

Remember when Bethesda announced Skyrim back in 2010? How the gaming world went crazy and a lot of you gamers couldn’t wait for 11.11.11? How every gaming site, community and blog out there made a review on its release but here? Well Every time I’ve started a review on Skyrim I’ve not been able to know where to start, and the fact that for around a year I’ve been suffering from a mean writers block which explains why I’ve not made many updates, at least now I’m ready and I know exactly where to start.

The Story of a Small Robot With a Big Heart. Machinarium.

machinarium_cover_fullI’ve been going through some of the indie titles on my Steam list and decided that I should give them a go. I’ve heard that Machinarium is a good example of an indie title that’s fun, quirky and makes you think about what you need to do in order to get the job done.

Like usual I will give you the low down on the game and how it came to be. Continue reading

Metal Gear Rising: Our Thoughts on the Demo.

MGR-Box-Art_12-15

Last night I turned on my Xbox360 and noticed the lovely ad for the new Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo so I decided to download it and give it a try. I don’t know about you guys but giving Raiden his own game and making it a hack and slash didn’t sound like the greatest of ideas, and thinking in this frame of mind I have neglected to show much interest in Metal Gear Rising since it’s announcement. Today while starting Skyrim all over again, a message popped up telling me that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has finished downloading, it took me a while to remember that I put it on download and at first I thought that my Xbox was possessed or something, I decided to leave it until I got bored of playing Skyrim which honestly wasn’t that long after, I just couldn’t continue playing because I felt dirty joining the Imperial Legion. I turned Skyrim off and looked through my library for a game to play when I noticed the Metal Gear Rising demo, and again I was confused at where it came from but realised once more that it was me, I then thought “To hell with it, let’s try it!” and booted it up.

Dishonored: First Impressions.

Dishonored_box_art_Bethesda

The official box art of Dishonored.

When Dishonored was first announced I watched the trailer with sheer hopes that it wouldn’t turn out quite as bad as Brink turned out, in my opinion Bethesda should try to stick to publishing their own games like The Elder Scrolls or Fallout series. I watched the trailer of Dishonored and found myself again as I was when watching the trailer for Brink, completely zoned out giving every drop of my attention to the screen, absorbing everything the trailer had to show only to be disappointed upon its release.

Is it Safe? Amnesia: The Dark Descent

All I can say about this game is, Oh my god! Seriously, my girlfriend had beaten this game before me and that was because she was determined, though not as level headed as me. I guess that even though I was all alone in the Castle Brennenburg I had a hand to hold all of the way through to the end, only because I had Hannah telling me where to go and helping me! I can safely say I doubt I would’ve beaten this game as fast without her if not at all! Though she beat it before me, I beat it faster for obvious reasons.

Anyway, you’re probably questioning yourself as to where the hell Castle Brennenburg is and what game I am talking about aren’t you? Well then, I am talking about Lux Tenebras or what is now commonly known as Amnesia: The Dark Descent, A spiffing horror survival game made by Frictional Games, the evil masterminds behind the Penumbra series.
