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 reve

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

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 fac

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

Beyond Co-Op Review: DmC Devil May Cry

So you want to be a demon hunter? DmC Devil May Cry is a great place to start. The reboot from Ninja Theory has moved the series forward in important ways, most notably the storytelling, level design, and combat. The game is dripping with style and refuses to let you catch a breath before hurling you into the next mind boggling enc

Beyond Co-Op Review: Dead or Alive 5+

Hello Dead or Alive, welcome back into my life. We first encountered each other back in my PS2 days. I was young and impressionable, and you had the largest assets of any game to date. Your high res polygons had me entranced from the moment I put my disc into your dark slot. What’s that you say, you’re on my Vita? You can be b

Beyond Co-Op Review: Elemental - Fallen Enchantress

Elemental: War of Magic was released in 2010, but it fell to a victim to a slew of bugs and a lacklustre release. Stardock’s piracy strategy is a DRM-free system with frequent updates so fans (like myself) hoped that the game would improve with time. Fast forward to 2012, and Fallen Enchantress is created and given free to customers w

Halloween Horror October 3 - Penumbra Review

Our next guest reviewer Gravehound specializes in those kinds of games that make you enter a world of madness. Maybe that is because the Penumbra series is too damn scary. In any case he gives us the goods on why these games belong on the list.
