Review – Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Ah, Toad. The butt of many jokes for all those years, the little guys that followed Princess Peach around everywhere before crying in disbelief (again and again) as she was whisked away by Bowser, helpless and unsure of what to do next. Let’s be honest, they were never considered true heroes in the same vein as Mario or Yoshi, aside from a few cameos in Mario Bros. 2 or Mario Kart.

Skylanders Trap Team – Review

I’ll be the first to admit that I have absolutely no working knowledge of the Skylanders video games. I came into reviewing Skylanders Trap Team as a complete newbie, with no prior conceptions of what to expect. After playing through Skylanders Trap Team on the Xbox One, I can safely say the game has entranced me, and left me with that kind of excitable glee normally associated with the opening of gifts on Christmas Day.

In 2011 Rayman was reinvented, throwing him and all of his buddies into a 2D platformer. Rayman Origins was a delight to gamers then and now Rayman Legends has taken all the goodness of the previous game and revitalised it, adding stronger level design and stunning visuals, to create a game that’s simple, pure fun.

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.

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 […]

The Assassin’s Creed series can be considered one of the most popular franchises in the previous generation of consoles. It has attracted many fans with its unique concept of reliving ancestors’ memories, with each game building a richer and more intricate world of Assassin and Templar secret societies. Ubisoft has certainly expanded on the series in their annual instalment of the Assassin’s Creed games with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. However, the question remains whether Black Flag will refresh a tired franchise with it’s venture into uncharted waters, or will it simply be the same Assassin’s Creed game with a […]

Review: Retro City Rampage

retrocityr

Retro City Rampage began as Brian Provinciano’s remake of Grand Theft Auto 3 for the NES, and much like the GTA games, you start off doing one thing, then get distracted which results in having more fun playing around than you would have if you just finished the mission. I’m glad this game exists. So many games rely on some pixel art and a couple of “A winner is you” references and think that it accurately captures what the 80’s pop culture/video game scene was like. Retro City Rampage finally gets it right.
