For DrinkBox Studios co-founder Chris Harvey, a third-round takedown may be just around the corner with Guacamelee!
Entry after entry Dynasty Warriors seems impressively dedicated to never, ever changing, no matter how much other games have progressed. But now Koei is moving on to new blood: Fist of the North Star: Ken's Revenge. And oh, blood there is. Kenshiro and his brutal Hokuto Shinken style have been bred to tally up a body count that would make Lu Bu envious, but is that what Koei needs to devastate this time around, or is life a privilege something this game does not deserve?
I distinctly remember being very fond of the Splatterhouse series. In high school I generally dug horror, gore, and all manner of spooks, creepers and creatures for no reason other than being ‘out there’. I also liked Sega Genesis and baseless angst, so it was kind of an interesting convergence of loves. I also remember imagining how 'rad' a remake would be. Well, Namco Bandai has decided to revisit the Splatterhouse series, but is this the game I asked for years ago or just a nightmare wrapped in another’s dream?
