When I first witnessed the nerve-wrecking E3 gameplay trailer of Days Gone in 2016, I was more than confident that it would be a game definitely worth playing. On the first booting of the game three years later, I was introduced to a 2-minute load time. That load time was a bad omen, but thankfully, as much as other reviews out there are saying how much of a rough ride Days Gone has been, it’s not all that bad.

Playbomb Reviews: Hellboy (Spoiler-Free)

Director: Neil Marshall 
Main Cast: David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian Mcshane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim
Genre: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Action-Adventure
Movie Run Time: 2hrs

Review Read: ~ 5 mins

I walked into Hellboy with the knowledge of the existence of bad reviews. Being a huge Hellboy fan, I was adamant in watching this reboot wanting those reviews to be wrong. I wanted to see for myself what is redeemable and condemnable about the movie. When I walked out of the cinema, I was filled with a mixture of excitement, and surprisingly, apathy of what’s to possibly come because Hellboy (Disappointingly) wasn’t all that great.

Never would I believe that there will come a day when we can say Activision as a studio and publisher has succeeded in not screwing up a game for their developers. From Software’s Sekiro is both a familiar take and a breath of fresh air for the Souls-Bourne franchise.

Playbomb Reviews: Devil May Cry 5

Developer: Capcom
Genre: 
Action-Adventure
Platform Played: 
PS4 Pro
Completion:
Story Completed
Hours Played: ~30

Review Read: ~15mins

After completing Devil May Cry 5 three times (Which is a REALLY low amount of times you’re supposed play through the game for), I was 100% convinced that DMC5 takes cues from the more successful Playstation 2 predecessor Devil May Cry 3. The game is, like in 3 (and even in comparison to 4), nonsensically compelling and addictive to boot.

Review: Alita: Battle Angel (Spoiler-free)

Director: Robert Rodriguez
Main Cast:  Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jakey Earle Haley, Keean Johnson
Genre: Action, Romance, Science-Fiction
Movie Run Time: 2hrs 2 min

Review Read: ~ 5 mins

I walked into the cinema with no knowledge of Alita: Battle Angel’s story (or Gunnm) – All I knew was that there was a manga about her and that the visuals look interesting enough to buy me a movie ticket. What I experienced was something quite unique. If you’re looking at a TLDR of what I’m about to review, I will just say that I liked it and it’s worth the watch – Not because of what the dystopian Sci-Fi genre would usually bring with an intellectual discussion on technology and artificial intelligence in general, but just because it was an interesting tale of how cyborgs can fall in love coupled with fun fight scenes.

Latebomb Reviews: Hollow Knight: Voidheart Edition

Developer: Team Cherry
Genre: 
Metroidvania (Action-Adventure)
Platform Played: 
PS4 Pro
Completion:
Story Completed
Hours Played: ~24 (and more)

Review Read: ~15mins

When I paid SGD$20 for Hollow Knight, I was not aware of what I signed myself up for. For what I thought would be a less than 10-hour experience of a gloomy-cute-looking Metroidvania game, turned to an approximate 24-hour gameplay of souls-like boss fights, challenging platforming, and an existential-philosophical reflection of life and death, light and dark.
