Daemon X Machina: Prototype Missions Impressions

First making its debut at E3 2018 as part of Nintendo’s E3 presentation, we now have the opportunity to try out Daemon X Machina for ourselves thanks to a demo on the eShop. Having never really played Armored Core or any other mech game for that matter, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. By the end of the hour-ish demo, I got a pretty good sense of what this game was about and whether this was something I’d interested in picking up someday.

Anthem Demo Impressions

Best known for making meaty single-player RPGs with a heavy emphasis on storytelling, BioWare is trying something different with Anthem. They don’t completely leave the RPG genre behind, but this is an action game to the core. So much so, that it’s heavily recommended you play the experience online with friends or strangers through matchmaking. Does BioWare have the chops to create a game this far out of their comfort zone? And for fans of their previous works, does Anthem provide enough reasons for you to join them on this journey? The full game isn’t out yet, but I tried out the demo to get a taste of what’s to come.

Starlink: Battle for Atlas Review

Years after the Toys-to-Life bubble burst, Ubisoft took the bold step into the deserted space with Starlink: Battle for Atlas. Unlike Skylanders or Amiibo figures, Starlink takes a modular approach with its toys. As such, you can customize your loadouts by strapping a unique pilot, ship, and weapons to your controller before entering warp speed. It doesn’t hurt that the Nintendo Switch version gets access to console-exclusive Star Fox content, including a sweet-looking Arwing toy. Is the game worth the trouble of slapping all of this extra plastic onto your Joy-Con controllers?

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game that Brought In Third Person and Double Jump Together

Originally released in 2003, the self-titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube does not have the pristine legacy of Turtles in Time. To its credit, it also doesn’t carry the infamy of their NES debut. Though I don’t know for certain, I get the sense that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003) is one of many forgotten games with the Ninja Turtles name that probably deserves to be left behind.

That said, life has a funny way of digging up the past. Join Kris, Rachel, and I as we talk about our separate histories with the game and how they collided in 2018!
