Review: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Wow, this might just be my shortest review ever. I don’t even know how I should start it, that’s how short it’s going to be. But you don’t mind, do you? No, of course not. Because you have less to read, and reading is oh-so-painful. Also, no distracting images or jokes this time, only hard-on facts. Heh, I said hard-on.

PlayStation All-Stars has been out since November, but I’ve only gotten my hands onto it since lately. And generally speaking, I’m glad I waited, because I got it for much less than the launch price was. Trust me, sixty bucks is way too much for this. I wouldn’t even consider PS All-Stars a full high-budget game, it’s ridiculous to ask so much money for a title that should be priced like an indie-game, content-wise.

Let’s see, we have twenty different characters. Alright, that’s cool. They don’t all play the same, that’s a plus, and you certainly have to get used to each character seperately. That’s great, that’s what makes good fighting games. However… why would I even want to play this?

This is the question I want to answer in this review. Why would I want to play PlaySation All-Stars Battle Royale?

Review: Gravity Rush

SCIENCE!

And flashy signature pictures for us so our blog posts look less empty and so it’s easier for you to identify us! Yay! False enthusiasm!

But yeah, that aside… SCIENCE! Isaac Newton, inventor of gravity, did a great job! Without his help we would still float around helplessly in a world without something that keeps us on the ground. Why couldn’t Adam and Eve do this much earlier? They had the apples and the opportunity. Ah, but I bet their overprotective father didn’t want them to do something useful instead of loitering around and not doing anything like the lazy snobs they were.

*cough* So, today’s game is all about gravity. Prototype 2 is an open-world action-adventure ga- … No, it’s InFamous 2, was it? Assassin’s… Creed? … Oh, that’s right, Gravity Rush. Says it right in the title, silly me. Gravity Rush (or Gravity Daze in Japan – though the katakana could also mean Gravity Days which would make a lot of sense actually… maybe the wordplay is intended?) is an open-world action-adventure game for the PS Vita that uses most of the device’s mechanics and was released a few weeks ago.

I usually don’t play a lot of Dynasty Warriors games, but when I do I try to get at least a 100% in the bitch.

Review: Asura’s Wrath

(A notice of warning: most of the links in this blog lead you to YouTube videos that don’t have anything to do with the review. Only access them if you are bored and in a safe place. You have been warned.)

Are you ready, guys? Put ya arms on!

No, not ‘arms’ in the sense of ‘weapons’. Literally: arms. Like, the two things that (probably) grow out of your upper body. Grow four more of them and you are settled.

asura, hanging, tower, spider, wrath

“Hang in there, Baby!”

Hey y’all. Sutobeya author Grynax here, nice to meet ya. What I’m talking about is a PS3/360 game that recently came out, called Asura’s Wrath. It’s about this angry, wrathy demigod called Asura who fights weird creatures that crawl on our earth. He can grow more arms than you ever will, and just climbs out of Hell whenever he feels like it. Sounds promising, eh? I bought it, I played it, and now I will tell you some important things about it. This is for all of you guys who can’t decide if you should buy this game or not. If you don’t feel like reading all of it, just skip to the bottom for the summary. That’s how things work here. Now, let’s begin.
