For the tenth Miku title, we push things to eleven.

If you had told me when I started writing reviews for Pixlbot that I’d get to review a Hatsune Miku game, I’d have called you a liar. But here we are sitting down with Project Diva X on the PS4. In the tenth title in the Project Diva series, the series takes the general gameplay of the previous rhythm genre and amps it all up to eleven. Continue reading review…

Batman: The Telltale Series – Realm of Shadows

The announcement that Telltale Games was making a goddamn Batman game was met with – at least from one fan of both properties who has chosen to remain anonymous – a decidedly enthusiastic “Huh, cool. I should get that.” Such wild and untamed emotions can lead even those who should know better to do something the Dark Knight himself (or one of the Robins, more likely – preNu52 Tim Drake would be my guess) would surely disapprove of.

Manami Matsumae makes for a Mega Musical hero!

Manami Matsumae is a legendary composer. You might recognize her music from Mega Man, Shovel Knight, or the new Mighty No. 9. So when we got the chance to ask her some questions, even in Japanese (Wth the help of my friend Andrew and Manami’s co-worker), I jumped at it.

You can hear my favorite track by her above, incidentally.

Fragments of Him, a tale of love and loss (Review)

Video games like Fragments of Him, ones so unique they can’t be defined by a single genre, don’t come around too often. The focus of the game is entirely about the four main characters, how they change over time and ultimately come together in the wake of tragedy. There’s no combat, no puzzles and no stress; you’re going to have to do a lot of listening and interacting with objects to make the story progress. Some gamers will write it off immediately simply because it’s like an interactive movie, but those with an open mind and heart might make a real connection to developer Sassybot’s narrative.

Face your own mortality in In Between (Review)

Telling a somber story of a man facing his own mortality, In Between is a game that is relatable for anyone who’s had a family member that is sick or dying. I would best describe the game as a puzzle platformer, and the platforming is what really makes In Between stand out in a crowded market. All of the puzzles take place inside the main character’s head, as he faces the stages of acceptance that he has a terminal illness. After completing most of the stages you can move on to a new set of levels with different gameplay mechanics. Brief snippets of the player’s important life moments and his thoughts are played out mid-level, these sections were great to experience while playing simultaneously.

Power up with TurnOn now available on PC & Xbox One (Review)

Inspired by the yearly Earth Hour event, TurnOn is known as the platformer without platforms made by a 4-person Russian indie developer, Brainy Studio. In the game an entire city is devastated by a complete power outage. You play as an alien creature who takes the form of an electric spark that must turn on lights, restore power to buildings, collect lightning bolts and help citizens on your way to fully illuminating the city. I didn’t really have any expectations for the game before trying it and it caught me completely off guard. After completing Turn On I can honestly say that it’s one of my favorite independent Xbox One games out.
