LOSING CONTROL

Do you know that feeling of skiing down a steep hill, one that is a little above your skill level? As the speed increases the control you thought you had slowly dissolves.

MONG’s Best of 2014 Award Winners – Part Three

2014 was certainly a wild year for gaming.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One both set record sales for a console’s first year on the market, reassuring gamers and “analysts” everywhere that console gaming is here to stay.  Microsoft decided to release a Kinect-less Xbox One bundle after saying it would never happen.  The PlayStation 4 failed to release any major blockbuster first party games during the holiday season, while the Xbox One released a hit new IP in Sunset Overdrive.

We saw the rise and fall of mobile games like Flappy Bird.  Games like Titanfall, Watch Dogs, and Destiny were all finally released only to be ripped apart by gamers with too much hype.  While less hyped games like Wolfenstein: The New Order, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, and The Evil Within managed to blow everyone away.  We were flooded with “HD remakes” of games – some that we have wanted for a long time, and some that were just released a year ago on last generation consoles.

All of that combined to make this years Best of 2014 Awards a really fun one.

Velocity 2X Review

RACING INTO THE BIG LEAGUES

A month before it had even been released, FuturLab made a bold claim that their title Velocity 2X is the game of the year. The article went on to focus on how Velocity 2X exemplifies the categories for a game of the year nomination: “best-in-class for audio, graphics, gameplay quality & production value.” To my delight and amusement, I am glad to report that Velocity 2X meets the high bar they set for themselves — FuturLab has made a game that rivals the likes of Housemarque’s Resogun for best arcade game on PlayStation consoles.
