State of Decay Year One Survival Edition Logo 1024x576 State of Decay Year One Survival Edition Review: True Survival

State of Decay Year One Survival Edition on Xbox One brings a game that truly feels like you have to survive. How long will you last?

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition is the new and shiny 1080p version of the hit that came to Xbox 360 and PC in 2013. Now armed with all the DLC combined with new DLC for this release, Xbox One players can now get a “better” version of this title that offers new weapons and characters, but also includes updated visuals and animations to make the game experience better than before.

The object of State of Decay is simple, survive. Now while that might not seem too ambitious, there are mechanics in Undead Lab’s game that are very unique that make State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition truly awesome and unique.

State of Decay manages to do something that many other games in the genre fail at, which is creating a  survival game actually feel like you are surviving. Through a series of different mechanics, but the most prominent one being that permanent death (permadeath) is a reality, State of Decay truly feels like you are trying to survive and are not just playing a video game.

Tower of Guns Review: A Lackluster Climb

Tower of guns logo Tower of Guns Review: A Lackluster Climb

Tower of Guns has a cool idea behind it, but sadly the execution feels lackluster and uninspired.

Tower of Guns is a unique take on the ever growing Rouge Like genre that has made a name for itself the past couple of years. Instead of a 2D plat-former that you usually see with genre, Tower of Guns takes the genre to the first person and adds in guns.

The goal for the player is to simply climb the tower with their weapon of choice. The player is given at first a choice of a few different weapons to ascend with, along with some perks like not taking fall damage or lowering the difficulty so you don’t spend your time continuously dying and becoming frustrated. Along the way you will fight different types of enemies that range from flying tanks and stationary blade spitters, all the way to giant bosses that are loaded up with different cannons of every shape and size.
