    The recent influx of gaming products such as Play Station 4, Xbox one and Wii u, has somewhat created a gamer’s nirvana. However, while the constant upgrades and available versions may be ideal for gamers, we know that quantity doesn’t always translate into superior quality. Superior products despite few glitches It’s commendable that Sony and Microsoft constantly push the creative envelop... more.

    Comedy is difficult in games. Punchlines can fall flat and the timing and duration of certain running jokes can degrade an otherwise enjoyable experience. There are attempts at satire like Saint's Row, but such material feels inclusive to the community as a whole instead of something more universal. The development studio Young Horses had an idea for such an experience, one that could easily becom... more.

    Nostalgia is a fickle temptress. It can make people overprotective, even blind to a fault. But it can also be a great source of passion, able to keep the work in question relevant for a long time. It can also be the basis of certain success stories from the crowd-sourced Kickstarter projects. Mercenary Kings is one of these games. Almost every single facet of it harkens back to gaming's Golden Ag... more.
  • Kinect Sports Rivals Xbox One Review

    What would motion gaming be without that token sport title? Sure, dancing is fun and Xbox Fitness is great, however the experience just doesn’t feel complete until you play some motion controlled bowling, or in this case climb a rock wall while attempting to not put your hands in the ceiling fan (I did it once, lesson learned). Rare have delivered that sport title for the Xbox One and Kinect 2.0... more.
  • The LEGO Movie Videogame Xbox One Review

    Before we get into this review I’d like to be the nice guy and point out that if you haven’t yet seen the Lego Movie, I’d highly recommend seeing that first as the game does follow the movie very closely and will give away some story. I also found the game more enjoyable after seeing the movie, so if you have the chance go see it first. With the last 12 months seeing a nice rise in Lego gam... more.

  • InFamous: Second Son Playstation 4 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 30, 2014 under Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews
    As I've made perfectly clear before, I love superhero stories. I enjoy Batman beating up thugs, I love the Power Rangers inspired heroics of The Wonderful 101, and I've got a special place in my heart for the InFamous games. Combining Silver Age era superpowers into the early 2000's age of grittiness and cynicism is always a fascinating mix, which the series has been able to create consistently. H... more.
  • Titanfall Xbox One Review

    Prepare for Titanfall. Over the last few months those words would have been ringing in your ears every time you visited either us here at All Age Gaming or any other gaming site. Now when you hear those words it’s in the middle of a game when you call in your Titan to wreak havoc on the opposing pilots. With its major selling point of mech combat and combining multiplayer and a story campaign in... more.
  • Dark Souls II Playstation 3 Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 22, 2014 under Playstation, Featured, PS3 Reviews
    I have died over one-hundred times in my first twenty hours of Dark Souls II. I've fallen from great heights, been poisoned, burned to a crisp, ambushed by club-wielding mutants, blown to pieces by explosives, and been filled with more sharp objects than a storehouse full of knife boxes. In any other game, this would make me hoarse with rage. Most games these days go out of their way to be as empo... more.
  • Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze Wii U Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 16, 2014 under Nintendo, Featured, Wii U Reviews
    Let me just start off this review by saying Oh My God (Insert Famous Blonde from Hollywood’s voice). I have not played a DK game since Donkey Kong 64 and in a large way I’m thankful for that. It has made me appreciate this game a heap more. For a side scrolling platformer you are offered a huge amount of variety. One minute you’re swinging across platforms, the next you're swimming with dan... more.

  • Top 5 Tips for Dark Souls: A Guide for Vets and Newcomers

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 10, 2014 under Feature Articles
    My fellow players, I cannot overstate my love of Dark Souls. I love its brutal and dour atmosphere. I love its post-apocalyptic dark fantasy setting. I love how its story is told through its environment, its game mechanics, and with strategically well-placed cutscenes and sparse dialogue. Above all, I love talking to the passionate community about interpretations of said story upto and including t... more.

    While we don't normally cover Mobile games here at AAG other than on the hand-held consoles like the Nintendo 3DS, we were fortunate enough to have on our podcast recently the Marketing man for SkyJoy Interactive's new game Super Kid Cannon. As a result we were given access to a special preview build of the game just prior its release (it is only available in New Zealand on Android at the moment).... more.
  • Thief Playstation 4 and Xbox One Review

    0 CommentsPosted by on March 6, 2014 under Xbox, Playstation, Featured, PS4 Reviews, Xbox One Reviews
    Thief as a series is the stealth game genre. When it first came out, it was praised for its use of lighting and sound oriented stealth gameplay, sharp enemy AI, seamless and complicated levels full of collectable treasure, and an emphasis on exploration and grabbing everything that wasn't nailed to the floor. Before Metal Gear Solid or Hitman, Thief was the stolen crown jewel. There hasn't been a ... more.
