Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons – Review

brothers02_06_big

Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons is the latest game by Swedish game developer Starbreeze Studios. Like the title suggests, this is the tale of two sons that embark on a fabled journey to save their dying father. The game begins with the younger of the brothers, Naiee, paying his respects at his mother’s tombstone. With the aid of a flashback we discover that she drowned at sea while he tried to save her. His elder brother, Nyaa, calls him to help him carry their ill father to the village’s doctor. This is where you first get to try out the unconventional control scheme. You control each brother independently with the left and right analog sticks, and each brother has an action button with the corresponding trigger button. This unusual way of controlling the game is at first confusing, but your brain quickly adjusts to it and you soon get the hang of it. This sort of single player co-op helps create a sense of synergy with the two brothers.

The Next Generation War

The Next Generation WarThis is the follow up to my “horse” pun filled next generation Derby, but to prove I’m not a one trick pony, I’ll change the format a bit. This is now a war scenario, and while the war is still ongoing and it won’t be over for a few years to come, I’ll try to find out who won the great E3 battle of 2013 but more importantly who is best placed to win the war.

Who Won E3 2013?

E3

Well that’s it. E3 2013 is over. As is the tradition at this time of year we need to pick a winner out of the big three so let’s have a brief recap of the evidence. Microsoft came out to silence the critics after receiving something of a mauling after their Xbox ONE reveal a few weeks ago. They did a fair job of it too. In the most flowing conference Microsoft bombarded us with Continue reading
