Beyond Co-Op Review: Ys - Memories of Celceta

Let’s start the show by letting everyone reading this know that I haven’t played an Ys game since 1990. Coming into the series with fresh eyes, I found Ys: Memories of Celceta a decent addition to the Vita lineup of role playing games. This combat heavy hack and slash has a great gimmick in that your adventure centers around revealing a map. Exploration is the name of the game and as every good RPG does, it is riddled with towns, quests, NPCs that need help and monsters that require slaying.

Beyond Co-Op Review: Speedball 2 HD

I have always been a sucker for ‘alternative’ sports. Give me Mutant League Hockey over NHL,  Frozen Endzone instead of Madden, and Base Wars before MLB. If I’m going to play a vanilla sport I’m going to do it in real life, reserving futuristic robot sports for the video game medium. Speedball 2 HD is a remake of the Bitmap Brothers’ most successful game, Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe. It’s been over 20 years since the last decent Speedball game and this is the most accurate representation of the sport/game you are going to find. Vivid Games has done the series justice and thank god Mastertronic had the balls to publish the damn thing.

Beyond Co-Op Review: Gunpoint

In Gunpoint you put your pants on just like any other person, one leg at a time. Only this time your patented ‘Bullfrog’ pants allow you to jump and or fall exceedingly far distances without shattering your bones. This noir-esque tale stars Richard Conway, a high-tech private investigator who must must penetrate single screen facilities and get away without leaving a trace. It’s a stealth game and a puzzle game, with a fresh perspective on both genres.

Beyond Co-Op Review - Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes

Fallen Enchantress, formerly known as Elemental: War of Magic has come a long way since its shaky release back in 2010. Legendary Heroes is the first expansion to Fallen Enchantress and brings with it a slew of new features, fixes, and content that isn’t going to win over any new fans but dedicated fans will welcome openly. I’m not going to cover the base game, as I will assume you are familiar with the general gameplay of Fallen Enchantress. If you’re green, I’d strongly suggest you catch up and read my initial review of the game. Basically Elemental is a turn based strategy game that balances a role playing game alongside deep empire building. That description barely scratches the surface, but hopefully equips you enough to know what I’m talking about.

Hey CoopBob. Farm Sim is super relaxing and the tutorials do a pretty good job of teaching you. The buttons are not too complicated for PC. I can't speak to a console controller, but I'm sure that it translates well, otherwise they wouldn't put it on Playstation or Xbox. Live the dream, be a farmer - it's the best one out there.

It isn't a bad game, I enjoyed playing it. With a second crack at bat, I simply expected more.
