inFAMOUS: Second Son – Review

9 out of 10 Excellent

Greatness awaits – that was the tag line used with the launch of the PS4. Unfortunately, with the scarce release of PS4 exclusives, gamers have had nothing to feel all that great about. Until now. The release of inFAMOUS: Second Sun from Sucker Punch finally brings that feeling of greatness to the player, putting you in control of some awesome powers and giving you free rein to use them as you see fit as you traverse the wonderfully recreated Seattle. Our ‘hero’ of the game is Delsin Rowe, a delinquent whose biggest claim to fame prior to gaining powers is […]

Review: Bioshock Infinite Burial at Sea – Episode 2

7 out of 10 Good

When Bioshock Infinite launched a little over a year ago, it was met with near universal acclaim.  It was hailed as an instant classic, and one of the best games of this past generation.  So expectations for Burial at Sea, its mysterious expansion DLC, were high.  While the first episode was entertaining enough, it was far from what fans were expecting.  So will Episode Two be equally underwhelming, or will it capture some of the magic that made Bioshock Infinite so memorable?  Read on to find out.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 Review

8.5 out of 10 Great

Sometimes a game doesn’t bring anything exceptionally new to the table, but is still an enjoyable experience. This is definitely true of Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow 2. It combines a Metroidvania structure with God Of War-esque combat and ties it all together with an absolutely gorgeous game world, and an interesting character journey. It may not push any boundaries, but it’s definitely a game worth playing.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition – Review

9.5 out of 10 Excellent Recommended

Last year, Crystal Dynamics rebooted the Tomb Raider franchise with the origin story of a young Lara Croft. Over the years from the beginning of the franchise, Lara had become an A-lister amongst gaming characters, but only now through experiencing this story of her first archaeological expedition does her character feels like it has a soul. Although it was surpassed by BioShock Infinite, The Last of Us and Grand Theft Auto V for many Game of the Year titles, Tomb Raider was nonetheless an exceptional game with a strong story and impeccable gameplay, originally receiving a 9/10 on Save Game.

The Wolf Among Us: Episode 2 – Smoke & Mirrors Review

wolfamongus

The absurd concept of Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us makes it a hard sell.  After all, the desire to follow a noire thriller starring The Big Bad Wolf as he tracks down a serial killer in a town full of fairy tale characters requires a cross section of a lot of niche interests.  Despite the odd mix of materials, Telltale manages to stitch up a quality tale in the first episode, and for the most part, the company does it again in episode 2, although the seams are starting to look a little frayed.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 hands on

castlevania

Preview events are usually a pretty standard fare – you go into an office building or a booked out room, where consoles have been set up and you play through sections of a game. Nothing out of the ordinary. The preview event I attended last week took place in a Red Cross blood donor centre. Yeah, it was a little odd, but it makes more sense when you take into consideration it was a preview event for the upcoming Castlevania game, Lords of Shadow 2, in which you play the infamous vampire Dracula. Attendees not only got to step into […]

Test-driving the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro

Roxio-1

The new generation of consoles are placing a much heavier emphasis on social gaming, not only in multiplayer aspects in-game but also in sharing gameplay footage and live streaming. Although screenshots, DVR recording and live streaming are becoming standard features of new gen consoles, these are still very basic options that do not accommodate picture-in-picture streaming with webcams, nor do they come with full-featured software for editing the footage. These are features that gamers turned to third-party game capture devices for a solution and we at Save Game are no different. For our weekly Twitch segment, Tash Plays A Turd […]
