Assassins Creed Mirage, Byte Size Review (XSX)

So apparently Assassins Creed has been around for 15 years now. And after the huge outings involved in Origins, Odyssey, and Valhalla, Assassins Creed Mirage is a step back in size, and in some ways, in time.

Set in Baghdad during the ninth century is indeed a step back in time but more importantly Assassins Creed Mirage is a journey back to the gameplay roots of earlier games in the franchise.

Redfall Review (XSX)

Redfall, Massachusetts. A lovely island town with great amenities and plenty for locals and tourists alike.

Unfortunately a legion of vampires have also taken a fancy to Redfall as well. Isolating the community and blocking out the sun, our resident fang-faces are having their way with the human population.

Time for a hero, or four, to step up.

Minecraft Legends Byte Size Review (XSX)

Being completely oblivious to this latest Mojang Studios release, my initial thought was of Minecraft Dungeons  and how I had enjoyed that.

I entered the Legends realm with quite a positive outlook. Bring on the Piglins!

Thanks to Microsoft/Xbox for providing a copy of Minecraft Legends to me for review. I really do appreciate it.

Wanted: Dead Review (XSX)

Right off the bat Wanted: Dead from Soleil Game Studios had my attention. The one reason was two words. Single Player. No online, no multiplayer, no invasions.

Wanted: Dead rings back to the likes of Shadow Warrior and  Serious Sam where there is plenty of fun to be had without getting too serious (sorry Sam). Wanted: Dead also also manages to include some little mini games and collectables on the side.

It is a nice well rounded title with good presentation.

Somerville Byte Size Review (XSX)

Somerville, the debut release from Jumpship. A new independent studio out of Surrey in the UK co-founded by Dino Patti of Playdead (Limbo and Inside) fame.

And this history is very evident within Somerville. Is it to the same calibre of Inside and Limbo? Not quite, but there is still enjoyment to be had here.

Although I have already mentioned Limbo and Inside as comparisons for Somerville, I think the best way to describe it is Cloverfield meets Another World.

A Plague Tale: Requiem Review (XSX)

A Plague Tale: Innocence was a bit of a sleeper hit. Well, to be honest it was down right over looked by many.

Asobo Studio came up with an absolutely stellar piece of gaming in both the story telling and execution departments. The sister and brother duo of Amicia and Hugo de Rune were really put through the ringer in their first trial set in 14th century France. 

What with the Hundred Years’ War, Hugo’s illness, and all those rats…
