Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives, where I will be reviewing the game AWAKE.
What first caught my attention with this game was the style of graphics, although the tagline on the store page also piqued my interest: “It was supposed to be a romantic trip… but turned into a brutal murder scene.” From this description, I was not expecting a point and click game. I am hesitant to call it an adventure game as you do not get much time to do things.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Five Dollar Dives where I will be looking at Hyper Scuffle, an arena fighter that is very similar to Super Smash Bros. In essence, you battle against three other players to see who will come out victorious. However, instead of attempting to ring out your opponent, you battle until someone hits 0 Hp.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a solid entry into the Ace Combat series. There are elements that have been added to the game that I enjoy, but there are also things about the story that have me asking many questions as well.

Astronaut: The Moon Eclipse is not a bad game, however, I found it to be uninteresting. The premise of the game is that a bunch of asteroids are heading towards Earth and it’s up to you to destroy them before they decimate the Earth. You get into your spaceship and head into a stationary position above Earth poised to leap into action. Continue reading “Astronaut: The Moon Eclipse Review — Pretty but lackluster space exploration”
Welcome to Five Dollar Dives. This week I will be looking at DLC Quest. Do you think games have predatory downloadable content practices? Day one content that appears to have been stripped out of the game just to be a pre-order bonus? Or are you tired of having to whip out your credit card just to feel like you have the whole game?

After seeing a tweet pointing out Electronic Arts’ (EA’s) declining stock price over the past six months, I decided to start looking deeper into what may be influencing the price. I was particularly interested to see what Battlefield V’s relation was to the drop, as I did not really expect a single game to cause these kinds of reductions in stock price, despite how many gamers were not too happy with the game from the time of it’s announcement up to and including now.

I am going to start this review by speaking about the mechanics of the game. While Titanfall 2 has a solid campaign, it is rather short and not where I would expect most peoples’ time to be spent. Online multiplayer is by far the meat of the game.
The gameplay is excellent; you move smoothly and are able to transition from wall running to sliding along the ground while turning your opponent into a pin cushion. Each Titan feels unique and requires a different approach to how your opponent’s Titan will be transformed into scrap metal.
