Game Title: AVGN1&2 Deluxe

Developer: FreakZone Games

Platform Reviewed: Switch

Rating: 9/10

As a casual fan of the Angry Video Game Nerd since around the late noughties, I was quite looking forward to the release of the game based on his exploits, although I had no idea what to expect. 

The 2013 AVGN game and 2016 sequel came out on PC and were very much what was needed, a tongue-in-cheek take on the platforming genre that was so well designed that it was clearly going to appeal to people outside of the AVGN fan-base, it was a great, challenging game that didn’t outstay its welcome. 

My lasting memories were of awesome music, frustration and satisfaction in perfectly equal measure and a sense of fun; I had an awesome time with them.

Game Title: Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla

Developer: Ubisoft Montreal

Platform Reviewed: PS4 (base)

Rating 9/10

My personal history with the Assassin’s Creed series is pretty chequered, I played the original but didn’t really click with it and, following this, the constant releases, spin-offs and other media just alienated me slightly as the lore seemed to get ever-more dense.

I did dip back in with Black Flag on the PS3 at a friend’s suggestion but it seemed to run pretty sluggishly and once again, I didn’t connect with it.

It was actually earlier this year during lockdown that the stars aligned and teased me once again with the franchise.

My brother mentioned how much fun he was having with Odyssey and heartily recommended it just as I was after an open-world RPG to lose myself in (after completing The Witcher 3 for the second time as well as Kingdom Come: Deliverance) plus my fiancรฉe was somewhat obsessed with the various soundtracks on Spotify, I was being attacked from all directions and so I decided once again to give it a try, and I’m glad I did.

The gaming market is bigger than ever before, and that's especially true of the indie scene. For gamers that are sick of battle royales and Souls-likes, that's a refreshing promise. 

But the constant flow of new indie and AAA games can be overwhelming if you aren't following it studiously. 

But with 2020 coming to a close, here are the online games you should be paying attention to.

In this edition of BBB, I’ll be revisiting an old favourite from 2013 / 2016 in Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures 1 &2 as they teleport back into my life on console as a deluxe edition, getting hips deep on a new Dreamcast (panic not, it’s also available on Steam and NES. Good) title called Flea! as well as diving into the new Dead Drop Studios LLC console release, Outbreak: Epidemic.

Game Title: Autobahn Police Simulator 2

Platform reviewed: XBOX ONE

Rating 4/10

Whilst the score I’m giving Autobahn Police Simulator 2 isn’t numerically high, I want to come out of the gate by stating that I enjoyed my time with the game and really look forward to seeing where the series goes next. Under the myriad of problems that exist, there is a really tasty game here, begging to be let out.

No More Heroes - Nintendo Switch eShop Release Review:

After being ranked #11 in the United Assassins Association, Travis Touchdown puts his trusty beam katana to the test as he faces off against the world's top 10 assassins in deadly battle.

It's a long way to the top, but this all-American otaku won't stop until he's the #1 assassin, baby!

Undead Darlings on the Switch is a game that I’d never heard of before a few weeks ago but now it’s a game that I am repeatedly picking up my Switch to play on a daily basis.

It’s a game that brings a smirk to your face through its goofy humour and its oddball storyline and it’s keeping me coming back for more of the same.

It’s a good mix of a Japanese visual novel-style storytelling with a heavy splash of dungeon crawling and a sprig of turn-based RPG lite combat. Bake that in an oven with battling cupcakes that are actually zombified creatures that were possessed by a mysterious virus and you get a gloriously ridiculous video game plot that kinda works...you still with me?
