Marvel’s Avengers Beta Impressions [Pixelkin]

Read the full preview at Pixelkin

Thanks to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Avengers have become a household name. Although the original Avengers’ decade-plus domination at the box office has come to an end, Square Enix hopes to capitalize on the superhero popularity with Marvel’s Avengers.

Marvel’s Avengers is an action brawler with the online co-op, mission-based gameplay structure of the Destiny series. The action game shines best in the heat of battle, but the level design and loot leave a lot to be desired.

The demon snarls, saliva dripping from its maw. A bolt sinks into its chest. It drops to its knees. 

I stand over its body, leveling the crossbow at its head. We both know another shot will send it back to hell. But I have a question,”What is Anonyma?”

“Not what,” the demon hisses.

Another voice suddenly cuts in, “He’s almost here of his own volition.” A human voice?

I whirl around. My eyes glow red with demon-powered magic, but see nothing. “Demon-killing is a niche skill set, but a useful one,” the voice continues.

I look back to the demon, but see confusion written on its ugly face. A green light surrounds me, and everything turns black.

Played on: PC (Steam)
Release Date: TBA

Once upon a time, before Fortnite became a cultural phenomenon by embracing the explosive Battle Royale genre, it was a cooperative tower defense action game. Fortnite: Save the World (as it’s now called), tasked players with gathering materials, weapons, and supplies around randomly generated worlds to defend against waves of monstrous forces.

Drake Hollow follows a similar path (and art style) in the cooperative crafting-defense-action genre, with vast improvements and increased depth across every aspect of gameplay.

Tabletop RPGs provide some of the most memorable experiences you can have at the table, whether it’s cheering at a clutch dice roll, gasping after a dramatic payoff or laughing at the charming antics of Tim the Goblin.
