Songs of Conquest - Early Access Review

Songs of Conquest Early Access Review After 20+ Hours


Brutally honest review for Songs of Conquest after more than 20 hours played. Songs of Conquest is currently available for the PC in early access, and is a turn-based strategy game similar to the Heroes of Might and Magic series. Featuring a beautiful pixel art aesthetic and an engaging combat system centered around magic powered wielders, this is the spiritual successor to Heroes of Might and Magic that people have been waiting for. For my full thoughts on the game though, including the good and bad, watch the full video.

Dolmen - Review @ Kakuchopurei

Posted on May 28, 2022 07:53 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Kakuchopurei reviewed the Action RPG Dolmen:

[​IMG]

Dolmen Is A Dull Sci-Fi Soulslike That Needs Massive Work

Soulslike games are probably one of the most popular genres right now, but From Software titles (like this year's Elden Ring) are clearly still AAA kings. It's not easy to balance a soulslike game, or make it challenging yet fair to play for those willing to get good. Of course, along comes indie developers' attempts at replicating the soulslike magic, such as Massive Work Studio's Dolmen.
Dark Souls In Space?

What sets Dolmen apart from most other soulslike games is its sci-fi setting. Most soulslikes tend to skewer towards fantasy swords and magic sort of stuff, but Dolmen is closer to other soulslikes games like The Surge or Hellpoint. The one and only highlight of the game is its sci-fi setting, which reminds me of Dead Space or Aliens with an atmosphere of dread. Unfortunately, the level design can be simplistic and leaves a lot to be desired.

This translates to exploration that's not that rewarding either. There's also no map or mini-map, so good luck trying to remember which metal corridor is the way to progress. In addition, while I know that the story isn't usually the strong suit of many soulslike games, Dolmen features bland and non-existent story that doesn't really motivate you to push forward. Cutscenes don't really do anything besides introducing bosses and new enemies, while most of the lore exposition is accomplished via terminals you have to access, which rewards you with a text you have to read (that's not particularly interesting). Yay, how fun.

[...]

It's going to take massive work (pun intended) for them to improve in the future. Looking at Steam reviews (which, at the time of writing, sits at a Mixed rating), many players have complained how Dolmen feels like an Early Access game, and they're not wrong, I can attest to that. You're better off playing other, better, soulslikes out there rather than trying out Dolmen, unless you're really hankering for a sci-fi soulslike.

Score:50/100

The Iron Oath - Early Access Impressions

The Iron Oath Early Access Impressions

Artwork of character silhouettes from The Iron Oath.

If you've ever fancied being the leader of your very own mercenary group, then perhaps The Iron Oath is already on your radar. Having recently entered Early Access on Steam, developer Curious Panda Games' second release is already off to a great start; while some of our readers may have been burned in the past by Early Access games that never reached full release, The Iron Oath's team are proactive with both updates and communication. If you have ambitions of dungeon-delving alongside your personal band of merry mercs, read on for our impressions of the game in its current state.

Conceptually, The Iron Oath obviously draws inspiration from other games but very much has its own identity through its visuals and world-building. For example, you'll feel right at home with its mercenary management and dungeon exploration if you've played Darkest Dungeon, yet the execution of its influences is original. The Iron Oath utilises many different systems that operate in tandem, and all of them need to be closely monitored by the player to maximise the chance of success.

[...]

Overall, my experience with The Iron Oath was very enjoyable. I'm glad I initially replayed the tutorial level. While I'm familiar with similar games in the genre, The Iron Oath wants to stand apart from them and establish its own gameplay flow. It's a very polished Early Access game, and that extends to every facet of its development. There's even an in-game feedback function, allowing players to report any issues on the fly. The developers have already pushed out four updates at time of writing: two smaller updates and two "regular" updates. The patch notes reflect the enthusiasm driving the game to its completion, with changes including bugfixes, balance adjustments, client optimisations, and more.

Owlcat Games - Next Game Starfinder

Posted on May 27, 2022 07:33 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]PC Gamer thinks that Owlcat's next game could be a Starfinder RPG:

[​IMG]

The next Pathfinder RPG might actually be a Starfinder RPG

Enough people have been asking Owlcat Games "What's next?" that the developer of Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous put together a website to tease an answer that question: whatisnext.owlcat.games (opens in new tab). Head there and you'll see a looping animation of three planets and an asteroid field, with a targeting display overlaid on it. Sure looks like they're heading into space (man).

The conclusion fans are leaping to is that Owlcat's next game will swap the tabletop RPG Pathfinder for its sci-fi sibling, Starfinder. First published in 2017, Starfinder builds on both the rules and setting of Pathfinder, only instead of wizards and rogues it has classes like technomancers and biohackers, and in addition to elves, dwarves, and so on, you might be an android or an alien who looks like a jellyfish.

We have recently concluded the research phase for the first game in the new Witcher saga, which means that from now on further development expenditures will be capitalized on our balance sheet - adds Adam Kiciński.

Dark Deity - Review @ GiN

Posted on May 26, 2022 13:23 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]GiN reviewed Dark Deity which is now available on Switch, too:

[​IMG]

RPG Dark Deity Takes Its Inspiration from Fire Emblem Series

Dark Deity, which released last year on Steam and more recently on Switch, is a game that's very reminiscent of a Fire Emblem that no longer exists. I personally loved Three Houses, but there was just something special about those older games: a strategy RPG where you couldn't take time to grind and had to make do with what you were given. Dark Deity makes sure to wear its Fire Emblem inspiration like a badge of honor, and everything from the combat animations to the character portraits exude a very similar flair. So is Dark Deity an imposter, or is it a worthwhile contribution to your games collection? Let's find out.

[...]

All in all, Dark Deity on Switch is a great game for those who want to experience the old days of Fire Emblem, and this game proudly wears its inspiration as a badge of honor. What's so impressive about the game is that it does everything reasonably well, from the visuals and music choices to the balancing of weapon and armor advantages or disadvantages. There are some strange bugs in the Switch version of the game, in particular, that could impact enjoyment of the game pretty easily, but Dark Deity could be worth your time and interest should it go on sale or receive a patch to improve some of its issues.

Score: 3.5/5

VTM - Swansong - Review @ But Why Tho

REVIEW: Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong Fails to Enchant (XSX)

Vampire The Masquerade - Swansong 1

Vampire: The Masquerade can be boiled down into a few key components: style, supernatural intrigue, and deep social interactions. With all of these elements in mind, the developers at Big Bad Wolf Studio and publisher Nacon made Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong to try and create a unique and deep narrative RPG within the setting. While some of its accomplishments are impressive when considering its assumedly limited budget, there are a few too many issues preventing it from being worth sinking your teeth into (pun intended).

The narrative takes center stage in Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong, which makes it all the more disappointing that its story isn't engaging enough to carry an entire game. It takes place in Boston as the council of vampires there has just received a Code Red, an alert that evidence of their existence might have leaked out.

[...]

TL;DR

I really wanted to love Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong. I already am a fan of its setting, desperately want AA video games to rise in prominence again, and love slow burns that are focused on character dialogue and interactions. However, there is just too much getting in the way of Swansong's success. There is no way of knowing exactly what happened, but the final product is one that I can't even recommend picking up on sale.

Score: 3/10

Citizen Sleeper - Review

Posted on May 26, 2022 13:23 by RPGWatch

[​IMG]Movies Games and Tech reviewed Citizen Sleeper:

[​IMG]

Review: Citizen Sleeper

Citizen Sleeper is an incredibly narrative-driven RPG resource manager where you try to survive in the dystopian ruins of interplanetary capitalism. It's tense, it's beautiful, it's somber. What else could you want?

Weigh up your consequences as you fight against a deteriorating body, and make sacrifices that could change day-to-day life as you know it. But stay quiet, as you never know who or what the next chance might affect.

On the surface, this title offers a lot to the player from the get-go. Which initially may seem like an overwhelming amount of information. You take on the role of a synthetic cyborg person, called a sleeper, who is one of the thousands of people fighting to survive an almost-apocalyptic world. You've escaped your regular lifestyle of working for a megacorporation that coincidentally created the body you inhabit. So with your great escape comes excellent consequence.

[...]

Final thoughts

As a whole, Citizen Sleeper is a fantastic RPG management game that involves a heavy dystopian tone of a derelict future. If this sounds like something you love, and if you're a fan of games like In Other Waters and Disco Elysium then this may be for you. I'd recommend it to anyone searching for the next space-based adventure, especially since it only takes about five hours to fight your way through.

Score: 8/10
