Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a spiritual successor to Castlevania

Koji Igarashi sets to revive the gothic side-scrolling platformer 
Following the steps of Mighty No.9 and Yooka-Laylee, Bloodstaind:Ritual Of the night starts a kickstarter foundation and gets to the goal pretty fast, people seem to have missed a good Castlevania game and it looks like we are finally getting a spiritual successor.

The kickstarter for Bloodstained is one of the most in detail ones we have seen for a game, it goes as far as to giving characters backstory, elements and mechanics of the game, and all the people and teams in charge of specific areas.

This kickstarter is the first one to have a “Special Backer edition Physical Copy”, this kind of games have always planned a digital release but Bloodstained give you the chance to pledge $60 dollars and receive a physical copy, is this going to be a new trend among kickstarters? Well you can still get the digital one for $28 bucks which is not bad at all

We can see here in the image on the left each of the rewards you can get for the amount of money you pledge to the kickstarter.

This game looks to be a lot of fun and a return to the classic we love, we haven’t gotten a game like this for a long time but the wait is now over, at least for 2 years or so.

Be sure to check the kickstarter for yourself and watch the great pitch that Koji igarashi made for it which can only increase your excitement for the game.

Assassin’s Creed Syndicate Debut Trailer and Gameplay footage

The New instalment of Assassin’s Creed gets its first trailer

Today Ubisoft revealed the trailer and name of the new assassin’s creed, “Assassin’s Creed Syndicate” alongside a 10 minute gameplay video which gives us a good idea of how the game feels and plays as well as some new things to expect


Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is set in 1868 Victorian England, this time the world will develop around the industrial revolution and the trailer gives a much more violent feeling than past Assassin’s Creed games and the character seems to have a personality like edward kenway but grittier.

The game still focuses on stealth and doing everything with extreme care and in silence, you can still use  stealth mode, eagle vision and mechanics you are familiar with but there are new things that will completely change the experience like the “rope launcher” which allows you to get to high buildings in a matter of seconds or a zip line to go from roof top to roof top.

The game seems to be the classic we know and love, and that some got even tired of, but with enough twists, changes, interesting scenarios and interesting storyline to give it a chance and enjoy it. The game is set to come out October 23 on PS4 and XboxOne with the PS version following later, be sure to check our page and youtube for more information.

TVG Review: Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X Review

Mortal Kombat X is out now and the game is as fun as you imagine it to be; If you are a fan of this series you will for sure love this one, it has the classic fast passed bloody gameplay with new and bloodier “x-ray” attacks and imaginative fatalities, and if your are a newcomer to the series you will most definitely have fun with this over the top fighting game.

The gameplay feels smoother than ever in the current gen consoles and the “kombos” are not that hard to learn and perform, although if you want to be a pro or learn every fighters combos you will spend some time learning all the mechanics and tricks there are to the game. One thing I like a lot about the game is that they took the stage interactions from Injustice gods among us, which is developed by the same company, and added them to this game, but don’t worry if you like a more classic MK you can always turn them off.

The graphics of the game are nothing too crazy or revolutionary but in the MK series it has never been about that, it’s more about how crazy can they get with the fatalities and how they handle the story, this game does both of those things right. The fatalities are crazier and bloodier than ever; although I couldn’t help but notice that they always include something to with the head, with that said there is not one that looks similar to another. Talking about the story, without any spoilers, it picks up where mortal Kombat 9 left and it is as good as always, anybody can enjoy the adventure and have a kick at it.

Content wise the game futures a 24 roster character selection, which is smaller than the last instalment and it does feel a bit small especially if you play a lot of big roster fighting games like Smash Brothers or the Naruto series. The game doesn’t have that many modes, although you only really need the story, versus, and online, but it does add this new “clan” system called “Faction Wars” in which you play online and win points for your faction and receive various rewards based on how you and your faction did, I think this mode really can add much more replay value to the game and that is always appreciated.  The game futures in game DLC which is always frustrating and considering the amount of content it is not on the cheap side, comparing it to different great dlc like smash bros or Mario kart 8.

All in all the game is a lot of fun, it is a great addition to the series and always a different fighting game you can have. Fans or the series, fans of fighting games, I think anybody can have a blast playing it and I do recommend checking it out or getting it if you are hesitant whether to get it or not.
