Is Legends of Aria Worth Playing in 2020?

Let’s get the elephant out of the room before we start, is Legends of Aria a complete failure or even worse a scam?

Success and Failure in Equal Measure.

The Developers of Legends of Aria (formerly known as Shards Online) have created a very solid toolset that allows creators and communities to host their own MMORPG servers in the style of a classic like Ultima online. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Minecraft Dungeons.

The Good.

Minecraft Dungeons is a fantastic ARPG, with a hint of Minecraft flavour.

The combat is simple and reminds me of the Xbox and Ps2 Lord of the Ring titles, titles that offered a genuine feel-good factor as you hacked enemies to pieces, by basing the A/X button.

Playing alone or co-op feels fantastic, and the semi-procedural nature of the maps aids replay value considerably. ....  Read Full Article

Review: Quantum League

Quantum League is the least deserving failures of May 2020, the gameplay is fun, the graphics while not groundbreaking look good, and the aesthetic choice is a good one, mimicking successful games like Fortnite and Overwatch.

What Killed Quantum League?

The price, now hear me out, the game is fairly priced for the content and quality, the problem is in the shooter genre, the same price can also buy Overwatch and with Fortnite, Call of Duty Warzone, Apex Legends and Paladins being entirely free, sometimes fair prices are not enough. ....  Read Full Article

Scum
Re-Review: Scum

Scum is the survival game we asked for but didn’t want.

Survival gamers regularly ask for depth, complexity, immersion, stunning visuals, realistic survival mechanisms, and when Scum comes along ticking all those boxes, the players abandoned it en masse because it was not the gank fest murder hobo simulator they actually want.

On the flip sid eDeadside Launched as a murder hobo simulator and the same group flood to it, only to leave it en masse upon finding out it was not a deep and immersive survival experience they were hoping for. ....  Read Full Article

Is Conquerors Blade Worth Playing in 2020?

Conquerors Blade has spent most of its existence flying under the raider, long ago dismissed as a failure, it has continued to slowly gain ground, with 24-hour peak CCU now reaching 9-10k most evenings.

Unlike most entries, Conquerors Blade appears twice on steam charts, as two distinct regional titles with separate player counts, I can find no clarification if there is cross-play between these two versions, with a combined 10k ccu or the total peak ccu is closer to 19k (with the 9k and 10k versions having distinct player bases). ....  Read Full Article

Review: Crucible

A shaky start.

The launch issues faced by Crucible were indeed something to behold, launching almost a day late for gamers outside of North America ensured that the fledgeling title was bombarded with poorly written and barely thought out negative reviews that plummeted its overall score to sub 40% positive.
Some of the reviews had valid negative points, and they need to be addressed, but most negative reviews are a mix of steam community/Reddit trolling and anti amazon bias. ....  Read Full Article
