Dead Cells Review

Heralded by many as one of the best games of 2018, I wasn’t quite ready at the time to take on Dead Cells at the time. Spooked by the game’s Roguelike/Roguelite elements, it’s taken me a long time to warm up to the idea of playing a game where the goal was to beat it in one go or lose everything. Games like Into the Breach, 20XX, and Moonlighter have shown me how fun the format can be and how the concept has evolved to be somewhat less punishing.

I have lost count of how many times I’ve died trying to complete the story of Dead Cells. Even so, that hasn’t stopped me from being absolutely addicted to it.

The resurrection of Anthem? According to EA and BioWare, a major overhaul is coming

Anthem was…a bit of a letdown. It showed well as a proof-of-concept for a game where players fly around and shoot things, but everything else about it felt half-baked. Every mission featured the exact same structure and your in-game actions did little to tie into the game’s larger narrative.

I ultimately traded my copy away not long after experiencing the blatant padding that was its tomb missions. Not long after, Jason Schreier published an explosive expose on the development of BioWare’s most recent disaster, further solidifying the notion that it was best for me to walk away.

Many have long since abandoned Anthem, but EA and BioWare aren’t ready to let go. According to a recent post on BioWare’s blog, the game will be receiving a major rework in the future.
