Sunset Overdrive – Insomniac invents something new and fresh

THE FOLLOWING IS A YOUTUBE SCRIPT. YOU CAN READ THE SCRIPT OR CHECK OUT THE VIDEO IF YOU PREFER.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and this is my review of Sunset Overdrive, created by Insomniac Games, and published by Xbox Games Studio.

Insomniac is well known. They’re the developers who made Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, Spyro, and of course Marvel’s Spider-man. Remember to respect the hyphen. They have been a solid developer over their career, with fun and inventive gameplay. Sunset Overdrive is the first game from them on a Microsoft console and it was the first one on PC, so let’s take a look at Sunset Overdrive

Rive Review – Taking a look at Two Tribes unique platformer.

The following is a youtube script.  You can read the script or check out the video if you prefer.

Hello and welcome to my review of Rive, developed and published by Two Tribes

Rive is an interesting platformer that was released in 2016 but didn’t get a lot of attention. The company behind it is probably best known for Toki Tori and Toki Tori 2, though Rive is a completely different type of game tackling a new genre, the platformer.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Review – It is quite the long but average journey

The following is the script from the following youtube video.

Welcome. This is my review of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey developed and published by Ubisoft.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the 11th game in the main Assassin’s Creed franchise, a franchise that should be solidified by now, but instead, Assassin’s Creed has changed up the formula once again and feels like a brand new genre, but perhaps it has become a change too far.

Best of my 2019 reviews – There’s still great games being made.

The following a script from the youtube video below.  Enjoy either the script or the video itself.   Thanks for watching.

Welcome back. I’m Kinglink and this is the second video of the Kinglink Reviews awards.

If you haven’t seen it, I already gave the worst of the year awards out. If you want them, I’ll link them at the end of this video. But with bad we need to also praise the good. And my 2019 reviews had some amazing games.

Some quick ground rules. This isn’t about score. While I did give a perfect score out to a few games this year, not all have made this list. This is a personal opinion, whereas my scores are about recommending the games to others. I didn’t like Hearts of Iron but it’s such a good game that it deserved a 4/5 last year. Personally, I didn’t like it.Read More »

Worst of 2019 Reviews – A lot of microtransactions, but also a lot of bad games

The following is a youtube script for the video featured below.  Watch the video or read the script as you wish.

Welcome, I’m Kinglink and I’ll be your host tonight, for our first of two award shows. The more popular category. Worst of year.

Maybe it’s just me, but I love the worst lists. This is always far more interesting than finding out if Breath of the Wild or Mario Odyssey won the top award for the year. Instead, let’s talk about the worst games I played and just what makes them terrible. Unfortunately, because this is a video program, I will be forced to replay these games for… admittedly minutes. Just minutes. I’m not subjecting myself to these games for longer.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Review – A shadow of a great franchise

The following is a script from the youtube video available below as well. Please watch the video or read the script as you see fit.

Hello and welcome to my review of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, developed by Eidos Montreal, and published by Square Enix.

This is the third Tomb Raider game since the reboot of the franchise in 2013 creating a new trilogy, but this is also the first game in the new series that wasn’t made by the original creators of the reboot, Crystal Dynamics, so will this live to the high bar of this series so far?
