We here at Akroview love horror games and films and we have done our fair share of jump scare videos over the years. One of which you can see below, although not my proudest moment for entertainment sake it was pure gold.

So we all got a little bit upset and scared when we found out the Irrational Games were shutting down and that the hope of another Bioshock game seemed dead in the water. But alas it seems as though there is a silver lining that we should all grasp onto with all our might!

Probably one of the hardest con write ups I’ll ever have to do mainly because of the alleged stigma attached to MCM and their handling of the con scene in Ireland. Although I have no solid evidence to back this up it’s been heard through the grapevine that MCM Ireland would be a con to avoid and to save your money for some of the other conventions that will be happening throughout the year. Personally I don’t believe this and I find that all conventions seem to be the same, they have the same vendors, same atmosphere and the same goal. But this con just seemed a tad different in my opinion.

We here at Akroview try to be diverse in the games that we play, it can be boring being tied down to a specific genre. So I decided to hunt down some games that don’t really fit in with the usual norm that is the current landscape, and I stumbled upon possibly one of the most beautiful rhythm games that I have played so far, Deemo!

Deemo is a very simple game but with a very complex story, I’m still not 100% in it but this is what I’ve gathered so far. Deemo is a slendermanesque figure who is destined to a life of solitude and loneliness, with his only companion being an old piano to which he makes the most beautiful music! Then all of a sudden, a young girl falls from the sky beside Deemo, not knowing what to do with this new-found companion. He decides to help the girl get back to wherever she came from. Whenever the piano is played a tree starts to grow from the top of it, and by playing songs on the piano maybe he can send the girl back home! (more…)

Never in a million years would I have thought a lone bird could cause so much anger and stress in my life! Usually they say it’s good luck when a bird drops a care package on you but in the case of Flappy Birds it’s nothing but pain and sorrow! But God is it addictive!

The folks at GEARS studio have really brought out a gem here, and usually I tend to stay away from all these mainstream games on mobile devices. I realise that makes me sound like a video game Hipster but I assure you I’m not. I just don’t see the satisfaction in anything that has “Saga” in the title. But right now it seems that the internet has focused all it’s attention on Flappy Bird!

Which could verify the point that the bird, is in fact, the word!

All bad jokes aside Flappy Bird is an unbelievably simple and fun side scrolling app that imitates the classic playstyle of Chopper, in which I mean tapping the screen to cause a sudden spasm of lift in our little flapping friend.

Our main objective is to guide this little critter through an endless wave of Super Mario tunnels! But this is much easier said than done! The slightest tap could send you bashing into the side or tip of said tunnels and cause you to crash into the ground with a strangely satisfying thud!

Overall it’s not a bad game, it’s fun and addictive and requires little or no battery power which means you can play for hours on end! The only bad thing I have to say for Flappy Bird is it’s sound, by God it is awful! High pitched and truly irritating, I basically have to play this game on mute to stop my eardrums from bursting!

Flappy Bird is available now on the Play Store and is FREE! So give it a go and let us know on out Facebook page what your highest score was. Currently ours stands at a mere 13!

So in part one I touched upon the more hyped up games that will be appearing on the new Xbox One, but there was a lot more on show. The four that were reviewed in the first part were ones that I was eager to get my hands on and did so with an already one sided opinion on what these games would be like, but there was a whole lot of other games that I was new to and was first introduced to at the event. I was quite surprised at the quality and gameplay of these games and it only further reinforced the notion of me purchasing an Xbox One in the near future. So lets get cracking into some of the lesser hyped games appearing on the Xbox One.

Below you will see the games that actually are able to push to the top of the fun list when it comes to next gen consoles, leaving graphics behind and focusing more on the players experience whilst playing to provide a very enjoyable experience. (more…)
