Last June, Newly formed studio “Deep End Games” launched a Kickstarter for their rather unique horror game. Originally announced for PS4 and PC Perception will now be coming to Xbox One as well much to delight of many of those who like myself were intrigued by this somewhat original concept for a horror game. Perception which is advertised as being a narrative driven horror with a twist, the twist being that you are in fact playing as a blind woman. 

With the announcement that Perception is coming to Xbox One, Deep End Games have released a new teaser trailer which you can check out below

Sky Force Anniversary is a satisfying top down shooter that not only plays well it's a marvel to look at.

For most if not all of us that own a modern phone, you may have noticed Sky Force Anniversary on your respected App store as a free to play game with the optional in-app purchases that come as standard with a free game. The same rule applies to the console version, although it's not a free game (costs £7.00 on the Xbox store) you feel where the pay wall would apply if you were playing it on the mobile app.

As most keen Halo fans will know, on Friday 17th February, Halo Wars 2 Ultimate Edition is released. This means there is just one week until one of the most anticipated Halo campaigns ever is open to those lucky owners. Don't worry though, the standard edition releases just 4 days later. What with the game being so close to release, we have received the eagerly awaited live action trailers, as is in the fashion of any Halo game release.

These trailers are entitled "War of Wits" and focus on strategy game style comedy, which plays out well in the real life situations. It is somewhat like the Sherlock films, in which Sherlock would predict what his opponent would do before they've actually done it. These slices of humour are very refreshing and much appreciated in the style they've been made. Managing to put a deadly Brute leader into real life situations is nothing but amazing to begin with.

The release format of episodic games is becoming more and more commonplace in the world of digital download titles. One of the companies most famous for this format is TellTale Games with their series like The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, Batman A TellTale Series and so forth. Other companies have found great success using the same medium such as DontNod and their Life is Strange series or Square Enix latest Hitman season 1, both of these series have has commercial and critical success for their content. 
When more independent studios follow the episodic format we are unsure what to expect, sometimes you can have a half-hearted attempt at a mediocre idea and other times you can have a truly hidden gem. 

The team at Prologue Games took the episodic format and then added more dynamics to it; this resulted in something unusual and pretty unique as far as settings for games are considered. The game follows the actions of a blogger, newspaper journalist and a private detective as they all start covering the events of an actor’s suicide in a backwater Florida swamp town. 
Their individual actions intertwine with one another and then cumulatively create something larger in narrative than a simple “who done it?” style of game.
The game is told like a play on a stage with the audience’s reactions lending weight to player decisions and choices. Scenes are rotated on constantly and the characters walk in between sets to show the change of location. The story lasts for 3 acts with the plot growing in size and ambition with each passing chapter; though by the time you come to the third act you stop trying to guess what happens and just start enjoying the ride.
