Heartbound is a roller-coaster ride of emotions with an intriguing narrative

Heartbound pic3If there was ever a good time to get nostalgic and play some 16 bit gold on the SNES it’s right now after the recent release of the SNES software on the Nintendo Switch. Having said that, I have never needed an excuse to boot up the old machine before because in my opinion, the SNES is still my favorite console of all time due to the plethora of high quality content that was released for it. Why is this relevant? Because the game we are going to have a look at reminds me of certain cult classics that were released on the SNES that I pray get a release on the Switch’s SNES emulator. Nostalgia aside, It is fair to say that Heartbound grabbed me where it hurts and left a pain within me that will not go away until I get closure from its rich narrative and heavily focused character development tropes within the full game.

Dreamscaper – Face your nightmares in a roguelite like no other

Dreamscaper thumbnailThe Indie game scene may not be starved of roguelite adventures or action RPG’s so is there a reason to get excited about another one at this point? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Dreamscaper has all the tools required to crown it as the best roguelite in the current Indie scene. While that is of course as subjective comment as you can get, hopefully it is enough of a statement to get as many people as possible to check this game out for themselves whether they are into the genre or not. Very few games in the world are considered “perfect” and there are no doubt some details about Dreamscaper that may rub people the wrong way but behind these small imperfections lies a game that sits pretty in a genre rising in popularity.

Raccoo Venture – A nod back to the golden age of 3D platformers

Racoo thumbnailI have many fond childhood gaming memories which I doubt will ever be forgotten or replaced as time goes by. I have many years ahead of me to make new memories with my gaming experiences but none will ever surpass the moment my brother and I opened our joint Christmas present which turned out to be a brand new NES complete with Super Mario Bros. Or the time my Dad got us Street Fighter 2 on the SNES which we had to wait what seemed like an eternity until my primary school’s Summer Fete was over so we could go home and play it. Let’s not forget the time my brother and I begged and begged our Dad to trade in the SNES for an N64 which he finally agreed to, then booting up Super Mario 64 for the first ever time was a feeling unlike any I had ever felt before. Ah yes the N64, an absolute relic of a machine that pushed graphical boundaries further than our imaginations could handle at the time. A lot of games on the N64 may not have stood the test of time graphically compared to todays standard but still play like a dream. It gives me great pleasure to be able to say that Raccoo Venture takes me back to a time that I adored as a kid which I am indeed thankful for. Read more
