Haven Reviews: Streets of Rogue

 

After the new major enacted some new and crazy laws, several disgruntled people in Streets of Rogue decided to form a rebel alliance. Which the player character joined, in order to bring down the oppressor.

Streets of Rogue is a game where each level have a theme and is randomly assembled, with a series of objectives. Which has to be completed in order to exit the floor to get to the next stage. Every now and then the game will also throw in special hazards, such as a killer robot.

Despite the pixelated graphics and simple character models, everything has a lot of charm in Street of Rogue, it’s also violent and sadistic as all hell. With several radically different characters to unlock and several ways to complete each objective. A stealthy approach is just as legit and feasible, as going in guns blazing. Or as I like to do, have random hoodlums trigger and run after me, and accidentally hitting the wrong target in the crossfire. It’s a glorious carnage to behold. The most insane so far is the pesky time bombs, which will bring down the entire floor when the time runs out. Virtually anything in the game can and will be destroyed, wrecked and thrashed.

Naturally there is an RPG element to the game and currency that can buy new options back at the rebel headquarters.

Since each unlockable character has a different approach, I just have to mention how awesome it is to play as a naked, alien baby body snatcher. Whom can take over the body of anyone, as long as their back is unexposed. Or the doctor who cant use a gum, but will gladly use chloroform to knock out anyone. A true pacifist indeed.

Streets of Rogue is very clearly centered around coop gameplay, since you will die a lot and I know for certain that I did indeed die several times. Other players in the game can revive the fallen one at the cost of half the health bar. Not to mention being a distraction, to leave that unprotected back exposed. Despite being in the very early stages with a lot of content yet to be added, it works like a charm and does everything it sets out to do. Not to mention it has gamepad support and is addictive as all hell. I will gladly recommend this game to anyone whom like rogue lite games, a ton of options and a bloody chaotic mess. With a kick ass soundtrack, which can be bought separately.

Nerd Editorial: Identity of the New Hulk Revealed

the-identity-of-marvels-the-totally-awesome-hulk-revealed

For months fans have speculated about the identity of the new Hulk who was set to be revealed in the new series “The Totally Awesome Hulk.” Well we have our answer now! Amadeus Cho will be the first Korean-American lead character in a Marvel comic series. He will also be supported by a Korean-American creative team, Greg Pak and Frank Cho.

Axel Alonso, Marvel’s editor-in-chief, gave his thoughts about the comic. He went on to say that although Bruce is no longer the Hulk, we should still expect some great things for his character, and that his story is far from over. Cho’s story focuses on how much he genuinely loves being the Hulk as a distinction from Banner. He went on to add:

“The link to what happened to Banner, of course, is how did Amadeus get the power? The first arc is going to tell two stories: one is going to take place in present time, which is going to be Amadeus being totally awesome as the Hulk, and kicking ass and getting a threat that is scaled to his power. And I’ll also tease that there are seeds in this story of something larger, that will be relevant to the entire Marvel Universe sometime toward the end of the year. So there are seeds there for something much more interesting. The other story told in flashbacks will tell you how he inherited to power and what happened to Banner.”

I’m unfortunately not super familiar with Cho’s character (other than knowing who he is in passing) but I like this creative team and have faith that this series will be something neat and different than previous Hulk stories. “Totally Awesome Hulk” #1 comes out this December and I hope to see you all in your local comic shop ready to buy it.
