It is rare to see such a large studio with so many established AAA IP's take a shot on a brand new IP and concept... unless that studio is Ubisoft. Ubisoft is one of the few studios that still likes to try out a new IP virtually every year. For Honor is a very interesting game; its core concept is so strong, and when it puts you in certain situations it is truly a new exciting combat system that I've never seen; however, most of the time the game doesn't put you in those situations and ends up in the areas of mediocrity far too often.
With the latest re-release of Capcom’s medium-defining classic Resident Evil 4 fresh on the mind, it’s bizarre and perhaps a bit sad to think on how few games have proven genuinely worthy of its design legacy. Even now, more than a decade after its original release, there is still only one game that has managed to truly take up the torch passed on by Leon’s misadventures through the macabre European countryside: Dead Space 2.
Quantum Break is the newest game by developer Remedy, best known for Max Payne and Alan Wake. Quantum Break makes an attempt at blending a video game with a live-action television show. The thought of it is silly and should not translate well, but somehow, Remedy figured it out.
Quantum Break puts players in control of Jack Joyce, a normal guy who gets mixed up in some wibbly wobbly, timey wimey stuff. After many years Jack returns home to see his friend Paul Serene and, by extension, his brother William. What Jack discovers is that his brother and Paul have constructed a working machine but in typical fashion, a malfunction occurs that ends up exposing Jack and Paul to chronon radiation giving them time manipulating powers and effectively starting an event called "The End of Time."
It has been almost 10 years since Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was released to rather favorable reception, the game took the best parts of the X-Men: Legends series and expanded the characters and story to include the rest of the Marvel Universe. Now the game has been ported to PS4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam release), so does the game hold up years later? Sort of.
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance opens with the nefarious Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil attacking a SHIELD Helicarrier for reasons we learn later. Soon after players are hopping between many well-known locales such as Atlantis, Mephisto's Realm, and even Asgard. The story is separated into five acts that as a whole feel like an entire Marvel comic book crossover event. From start to finish I was eager to know where my next mission would take me. As you visit different areas in the game you'll meet a wide array of Marvel characters such as Weasel, Wyatt Wingfoot, Wong, and even Uatu. Of course, you'll also bump into a good number of Marvel villains some well known and some rather obscure (Fin Fang Foom fans holla!).
