This week on the cast, I welcomed owner of Super Jump James Burns to discuss the Game Industry, Game Journalism, and what it’s like to grow up through the 2D and 3D era.
Milkstone studios has certainly gone in a different direction from their last game: The FPS rogue-like RPG Ziggurat. With Pharaonic the developers have essentially created Egyptian Dark Souls. With a combat system built from the ground up, the game is a very impressive start, but does it do enough things right to earn the Dark Souls mantle?
I wasn’t originally going to review Shovel Knight Plague of Shadows as it was originally a stretch goal and simply more content to the Shovel Knight experience. However, after finishing it up and getting the full breadth of what Plague Knight offers, the different design and gameplay deserves a closer look.
#1 is another 2D platformer like Shovel Knight but instead of modernizing classic gameplay; the developers went with elevating 2D platforming to one of the most challenging games released this year. All the more impressive considering that this is a Wii-U title.
