World of Warships: Legends – Launch Trailer | PS4

World of Warships is a new game from the Developers of World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. It’s a Free to Play game that puts you in a fleet of other humans controlling ships vs. another fleet battling it out for supremacy.


World of Warships: Legends Review - 1

Full disclosure: as this is a Free to Play (F2P) game, the developer gave us a boost pack for our review that includes some bonus in-game currency and some extra stuff here and there to help us review the more advanced features of the game. You can grind an earn these over time as you play, but I did want to let you know how I got started with World of Warships: Legends on PlayStation 4. The game has been available for a bit on PC,m but this isn’t just a straight up pot. The game has been redone with consoles in mind, adding some new content and making changes to the way you interact with the game since you’re controlling things with a controller vs. mouse and keyboard.

The game has a rather steep learning, throwing you into the game with the option to play against human opponents or vs. AI boats. While playing against the AI boats you will learn more about the game and, trust me, there is a lot to learn with how to control your ship, how to speed up and slow down, firing at potential targets, avoiding incoming attacks, and more. Take your time with the AI opponent’s and learn the ins and outs of this, or you will have a hard time playing against humans who did their homework! There is a big learning curve, as you are dealing with moving targets. You need to aim where you think they will be and not where they are, especially for battles with larger distances. This can take some time to get used to.


World of Warships: Legends Review - 2

You start with tier 1 ships, which are the basic ones. As you play the game more, you will earn XP, which will help to unlock new tiers, as well as better ships that give you more power or more mobility. Since it is a F2P game, you can unlock these quicker if you don’t want to grind for experience. Along the way, you can customize and modify your ships, allowing them to feel unique on the battlefield and fit the playstyle you like. There are also legendary commanders you can get, which grant an additional bonus to the ship depending about what their specialty is.

World of Warships: Legends Review - 3

The battle will either end when all enemy ships have been sunk, or you have captured the crucial pieces of land. You and your team start on one side of the 15 maps with your opposing team on the other, and then the skirmish happens. When playing against the AI, you will find yourself winning quite often, which is a great boost for your ego, but when you switch to working with and playing against humans, there is a big climb in difficulty. You need to work with your teammates to coordinate an effort to win against other people trying to beat you. Teamwork is super important, and it is the best way to play the game.

The game impressed me visually, especially for a F2P game. I went in expecting a dated look as this has been available on PC for a while, but it looked very good on PlayStation 4! Ships looked very distinct from each other, with lots of little features on them that allowed me to see which type of ship I was dealing with. The draw distance is great as well since you can see land masses and ships far out in the horizon battling each other. It’s cool at certain points to see all the ships battling around you!

Final Thoughts

I had a bunch of fun with World of Warships. It’s a neat MMO that feels unique, especially in the Free to Play market. Without putting any money into it, you can get a feel for what the game offers, and as you continue to play, you can reap its rewards. This feels like the perfect evergreen game where you can jump in with a limited amount of time to play and have some good fun, as it does not force you to pay up to survive and progress, but if you want to, you can go down that route.

Ceidz, Owner

Dusk Fox reviewed Koloro, a colorful puzzle/platformer on the Nintendo Switch, from QubicGames.

We gave it a 8 out of 10, and quoted it a “Colorful and charming puzzle platformer“!

Here’s an excerpt of our review:

When deciding about whether this game is for you or not, it all comes down to one thing: if you like the first dozen or so levels, you will probably like the other 30+ stages it offers. If not, then it might be harder for you to really get into this one or you might find it a bit tedious. Kolori is certainly a good game that you can pick up and complete some levels here and there to come back to it whenever you want or can, so be sure to pick this one up for your Nintendo Switch!

Now’s YOUR time to win a FREE US copy of Koloro on the Nintendo Switch.

The giveaway ends on June 23rd, 2019 at midnight (PST).

[PS4 Double Review] Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk Review

[PS4 Double Review] Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk Review

the_nmac

Tour a forbidden labyrinth underneath a city and find treasure and bring it back to your mistress. Did we mention you’re a living book? Learn more about this one in our Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk review!


From Nippon Ichi Software, creators of the Disgaea™ series, comes Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk.

In this dungeon RPG, you play as the Tractatus de Monstrum, a living book owned by the conniving Dusk Witch Dronya, and confront the dangers lurking beneath the quiet town of Refrain. Assemble an army of up to 40 fully customizable puppet soldiers and wield unique skills, deadly magic, combination attacks, and powerful weapons to annihilate terrifying monsters and conquer the labyrinth of Refrain!

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk – Launch Trailer | PS4


This is a double review for the PS4 versions of Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk. The game was played on PS4 by the_nmac and Tracey. This review presents what they both had to say.

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is a first-person dungeon crawler. You play as Tractatus de Monstrum, Tractie for short, a mysterious book with a soul trapped inside it. The book is able to communicate by filling its pages and Tractie is being controlled by a witch known as Dronya. Dronya orders Tractie to explore the Dungeons of Refrain on her behalf. The caravan is your base of operations, the base will expand as you progress through the story. Once you begin the game only the Witch’s report will be available at the start. Viewing Witch’s reports often advance the story. In order to advance the story, you need to fill conditions Dronya asks of you.

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk review - 1

Gameplay is pretty typical of a dungeon crawler, and you can move up, down and sideways in a first-person view by using the DualShock 4 D-Pad. While exploring the Labyrinth you will come across many enemies, and combat is turn-based. You don’t have to directly do any combat, so instead your puppet soldiers will fight on your behalf. Your puppets are assigned to units known as Covens. Each command you give is given to a Coven, and each Coven has a max of three puppets, and you have five Covens which are known as a Brigade – think of an Army Regiment. Each Division within an Army is called a Company, and a group within a Company is known as a Platoon. The setup works in a similar fashion, so once you have issued your choices you can then engage combat and let the puppet soldiers do the work while you sit back and watch! You can fortify your Covens by reducing the damage they receive, and if things get rough you have the option of escaping.

While exploring dungeons, when you see a red exclamation point this will a mark for a story event. You will experience many of these story events as they help progress the story a little bit, and sometimes they give you a little bit of info on what you do next. Also while exploring dungeons there are many treasures for you to find, and if you see any green markings on the map they are for mana, so do collect it all! You can choose to destroy common stuff and keep all the good stuff from the settings menu, so make sure you adjust the settings before you play the game. There is also dual audio, so if you prefer Japanese voices you can make the change.

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk review - 2

The mana is pretty important since the mana you collect while exploring the dungeons will allow you to buy skills to aid you, which includes a skill called Mud Exit which will prove to be very valuable to have as it creates a portal that will make the game a little easier in the long run. You can also purchase difficulty changes if the game is too easy or too hard for you, so explore every nook and cranny so you can buy up every skill you want.

Skills costs Reinforcement Points to use, and you begin the game with a fixed amount, so you need to be mindful of your Reinforcement Points and use them only when you really need to. You can use the points to break down walls and find hidden secrets, but I would wait until the entire dungeon is fully explored so that you can see how many points you have before doing this kind of activity. Going back to the Caravan will recover your reinforcement points, so do keep that in mind!

You can also craft new puppet soldiers, but in order to do that you need souls and puppet parts, and the level of customization available when creating puppets is very fun, but I will leave that element of surprise for you to find out! There are six classes to choose from for your newly crafted puppet soldiers, so be sure to mix things up so that you can have a balanced party that can deal with anything the game throws at you!

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk review - 3

The game is really addictive the map fills out as you explore and that urge to fill out every single square is really strong. There will often be multiple paths you can choose from and you will find yourself wondering which path to take but end up doing both. Walk a little ways one side and then rinse and repeat and hope for a dead end to appear so you can carry on through the other side. The need to completely fill the entire dungeon is very very addictive!

Last but not least, the trophy list is very… cryptic. Most trophies are related to the story and to some surprises here and there. This being a dungeon crawler, the difficulty does ramp up as you progress, and a single run is not going to net you all the trophies in that one go. You’re going to spend dozens of hours in this one, and it’s certainly going to be worth it!


Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is an interesting game which I’m glad I got the opportunity to play. Tracey covered a ton of similar thoughts that I had but I wanted to dive into some things a bit more. I’m a huge fan of old school first-person dungeon crawling, which can also be seen in MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death and a bit in Severed – albeit with some different gameplay mechanics. As someone who is a completionist when playing games, there is a deeply satisfying gameplay loop of exploring the floors, filling in the maps and finding all of the secrets as you descend further into the dungeon.

You do have to watch as you are exploring as there are pitfalls that can affect you, including drops to other levels of the dungeons which can cause some damage to your party – even to the point of death! The loop of exploring, finding treasure, going back to the surface to see what you’ve earned, and upgrading your team, is really good and will continue getting better as you play the game.

Having your puppets battle for you is really cool as well. You can continue to create puppets when you find souls and parts and upgrade them to make your group stronger. You find armor and weapons like you would do in other RPG, so you’ll always be customizing your loadout. The flurry once you start filling your Covens with puppets gets interesting as you see damage numbers flying all over the screen. The relationship between the puppets in a Coven is also very interesting since the more they are together the closer they get and the more bonuses you get.

I don’t want to dive deep into the story, as I don’t want to spoil anything, for you, but I do want to mention that it’s really fun. The Mayor of Refrain has brought you here to explore the well underneath the city which humans can’t do. In between spelunking down below you will learn more about the town and it’s dirty secrets. It’s a compelling narrative that manages to pull you in as you continue to go deeper and deeper into the labyrinths.

Final Thoughts

We fell in love with the game as we played it, taking all of what this dungeon crawler has to offer, exploring every nook and cranny. The battle system is different and fun, and we enjoyed the story the game gave us as well. We think this is a title that everyone should be checking out, even more so if you’re a fan of the genre since this is a very polished release.
