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?

Humble Choice December 2019 Review – Let’s get this thing started

The following is a Youtube Script for the Humble Choice of December 2019 Review video, found below.

Hello and welcome to the Humble Choice review.

Humble Choice is now here and with it, we have ten games plus one bonus game. The last being an add-in, that comes free with the Choice, but why not look at it as well. The fact is there’s a ton here and I’d probably spend most of my month, if not a couple, just to cover each of them, so I’m going to go through these games with a couple of simple rules.

I’m going to play 1 hour of each game, give a quick synopsis for what type of game it is, who might like it, and if I want to go on.Read More »

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Review – Well that’s one way to end a series

Hello, this is my review of Dananronpa V3: Killing Harmony developed by Spike Chunsoft, and published by Spike Chunsoft and NIS America.

Just as a heads up, there’s probably going to be swearing and mature topics shown on screen. Nothing sexual, unlike Ladykiller in a Bind, but the language in this game gets quite salty at times. Just be aware of that.

Also, I’m going to be talking about Danganronpa the series a bit, if you haven’t played the first two games you should definitely before playing this, but enjoy the review, I’ll try to keep the spoilers to the spoiler section whose timestamp should be shown right now. With that said this is a long video. I apologize. I’ll try to be briefer next time, which I should be able to do.

But yes, There’s a spoiler section, if you’ve played this game, you probably know what I might want to talk about, but I’m going to attempt to avoid ALL spoilers while reviewing the game, and then have a spoiler discussion at the end to explain my opinions.

In keeping with that, almost all the video will be of the prologue, first case, and first trial. I will attempt to hide as much information as possible, however some pieces may be visible to sharp eyes. I will allow people to discuss the spoilers down in the comments so if they want to refute something I’ve said, that’s up to them. Beware.

Danganronpa V3 is the third main game in the Danganronpa franchise. Danganronpa is a series of games about school students being put into killing games for various reasons, but always with bloody effect and dangerous experiences. However, these are Visual Novels, so the player is more along for the ride than at true risk.Read More »

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 Review – Taking the Console Wars to the next level

Hello and Welcome to my review of Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 made by Idea Factory, Compile Heart, and Felistella, and published by Idea Factory at least in America. Normally that’s just simple information but in this game, let’s just say we’re going to see personifications of two of these companies, well not even just these.

Hyperdimension Neptunia is a long-running series, spanning over ten games so far, focused on a universe where the video game consoles are humanoid Goddesses embroiled in a major Console War. If it sounds interesting, then starting with Re;Birth 1 is the right step with it being a remake of the original game, originally made for the Playstation Vita, Playstation 3 and 4, Windows currently.
