Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Gameplay from Boss Key Productions new Battle Royale game, Radical Heights is beginning to surface. The early access is now available for free on Steam and gamers have a lot to say about it. Boss Key Productions is a relatively new developer, founded in 2014 and their most well-known game so far was Lawbreakers. The underwhelming sales and performance of Lawbreakers has gamers uncertain whether or not Radical Heights will be able to catch the gaming world’s attention.

Gameplay from GameSpot

A Redemption Story

Lawbreakers fell flat against other hero based shooters like Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege to name a couple. Now Radical Heights is going up against monstrous Battle Royale games this time around. Fortnite and PUBG have absolutely stole the world’s attention when it comes to the Battle Royale genre and the indie game ‘Darwin Project’ has also captured the imaginations of gamers. Huge hits like Grand Theft Auto V, Overwatch, and the Division all have or had at one time rumors circulating that they’re exploring a Battle Royale mode. Even the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 has seen its share of Battle Royale rumors. Boss Key is up against some heavy hitters and the jury is still out if Radical Heights will be able to find its own spot in this competitive genre.

Exploring the gameplay that’s coming in, Radical Heights has some interesting features that make it stand out. The 80’s game show themed setting gives the entire game a different feel when compared to the other massively popular Battle Royale games on the market today. PUBG’s gritty shooter experience and Fortnite’s cartoony graphics don’t come close to the experience Boss Key Productions created with Radical Heights. If it’s better or worse, that still remains to be seen. However, unique is absolutely the word to describe the setting Boss Key created.

Something A Little Different 

The waiting lobby lets player race with BMX bikes, creating a little more of an interesting pre-game experience. When the match starts and gamers jump into the relatively small map, one of the first things they’ll notice is landing is a bit rougher than Fortnite or PUBG. There is no parachute and instead, the character does a classic 80’s combat roll on landing. It is yet to be seen if this will only be a feature during early access but it actually adds a bit of excitement to the game. Forgoing the parachute allows gamers to get on the ground and into the action quicker. Beyond these interesting additions, the gameplay itself stands out among the current Battle Royale environment.

One of the most exciting features that are unlike the aforementioned Battle Royale games is the cash system. Around the map, there are cash registers and other objects that can be broken open and cash comes falling out. Players accumulate cash to buy guns and gear from vending machine-like objects located around the map. Instead of collecting all the equipment around the map, this new mechanic is an exciting feature. These vending machines have the potential to be a focal point of action and epic battles. There are still health packs and even food that can be found around the map but gear to win games will all come from the vending machines. 

Not only can people buy equipment with the cash they pick up, they can save it for later matches. Players can withdraw or deposit cash at any time during a map at one of the Cash Back machines and can also use the money they earn to purchase cosmetic items in between rounds.

Combat and Final Impressions

The combat is intense, violent, and exhilarating. Fast-paced, the game doesn’t have some of the long lulls that can be found in PUBG’s original two maps. Even though it’s in its early access, the game runs relatively smooth and seems to be put together well. The inside of buildings are a bit bare but the shooting mechanics and gunplay seemed tight and responsive.

Overall Boss Key Productions may have missed the mark with Lawbreakers but Radical Heights has a great chance of leaving a strong impression on the gaming community. Going up against international hits seems to be Boss Key Productions play and if Radical Heights hits big it could redeem the young developer.

RIME Indie Game Spotlight on YouTube

RIME Indie Game Spotlight on YouTube

RIME is one of those mysterious abstract puzzles from the first second the game begins. Waking up, alone on a desert island with nothing but the clothes on your back and the crabs at your feet, the story has yet to come into focus. Developed by Tequila Works and released in 2017, RIME faced mixed reviews from the critics and fans. Always preferring a first-hand look at a game, the Gigamax crew decided it was time to see for themselves.

The game is beautiful but the sea is absolutely the superior environment. The land seemed a bit stiff but the water physics and graphics really were in a league of their own when compared to the land. Even so, the cell shading was enjoyable and easy on the eyes when walking around the interesting world of RIME.

With the game offering such a variety of characters, the story mode being stuffed with content and the multiplayer experience asking for competitive play, Dragon Ball FighterZ is sure to be a source of countless new videos. The crew has been practicing non-stop so they can put on a show when fighting head to head. This fighting game will come second nature for any Street Fighter fans out there so it’ll only take minimal adjustments before feeling comfortable with the controls.

New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

Activision is rumored to be working on a brand new Crash Bandicoot game. With the incredible success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, selling over 2 million copies, it would be a good move for the company and for gamers. The rumor broke after people spotted the ‘Spring 2018 issue of Licensing Source Book Europe’. This game may have been a breakout hit but there is still no confirmed reports by Activision on if they will be delivering a new Crash Bandicoot game in 2019. There is, however, a lot of evidence pointing to it being a reality.

New Crash Bandicoot, crash bandicoot rumor, crash bandicoot, latest games, video game rumors, gaming rumors, video game news, Activision, Sony, Switch, PC



Max Arguile, a manager of the merchandising company GB Eye reportedly shared some information he may not have had permission to disclose. “The new game was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be another game in 2019,” he said. “Activision has a five-year plan for this and GB Eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.” http://bit.ly/2E5ZRrM

It would make sense for Activision to ride the Crash wave as long as possible. This PlayStation exclusive took the spot for the top-selling remastered collection in Sony’s recent history. With the rumors causing so much excitement and the previous success of the remastered collection, it looks like Activision would be able to drop a successful new Crash Bandicoot game tomorrow without spending a dime on marketing once again. 

The Rumor Mill Keeps On Spinning

The rumors don’t stop at just a 2019 release. Those precarious parentheses in the alleged quote recorded by IGN did hold the names of two important consoles, Switch and PC. With the runaway success of the Switch and the massive popularity of PC gaming, a Crash Bandicoot game would be a wonderful addition to both consoles. Still, this is just a rumor but one that holds a lot of validity since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was such a money maker. Opening up its audience would mean even more access to gamers wallets.

Gigamax Games will be keeping a close eye on the progression of these developments surrounding the brand new Crash Bandicoot game that could possibly be released in 2019. Be sure to check back on this page for any updates or additional news from Activision. The gaming world couldn’t believe the headlines and with good reason, they’re not confirmed. However, let’s keep those fingers crossed because a new Crash Bandicoot game would put a smile on millions of gamers faces around the world.

Gameplay Anyone?

If you haven’t had the chance to see gameplay from the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, this will help. Hope you enjoy!

Sea of Thieves on YouTube with Gigamax Games

Sea of Thieves on YouTube with Gigamax Games

Who’s ready to sail the open seas with a party full of pirates? Sea of Thieves is promising all the adventure of a pirates life without the risk of scurvy or a watery grave. The game is releasing in March of 2018 but the Gigamax Games crew was able to get an early start with the closed beta. Having a small preview of the game was exciting and it made the wait for the full release even harder.

Sea of Thieves YouTube Playlist

The gameplay was relatively smooth all the way through which was great to see. Rare had to address some technical issues that interrupted the first few days of the closed beta but extended the beta to compensate. The games’ graphics may be cartoony but they were fantastic. Looking out into the ocean at full sail is a sight to remember. 

An Ocean Filled With Danger

Combat was fun and each island held their own surprises. The ocean was filled with danger but it only made the Gigamax crew want to sail into the blue abyss and see what trouble they’d come across. Sea of Thieves has a very interesting progression and questing system which will take some time to figure out but it promises exciting adventures await on the horizon.

No one said being a pirate captain would be easy. Sailing the ship requires a player to hoist the anchor, release the sails, steer the ship and navigate all on their own. Having a crew of friends on board will absolutely make navigating the high seas much easier. Plus, the ships sink on a dime so having a bunch of friends along for the ride could help with fending off shark attacks.

Sea of Thieves is high on the list of games to play for the Gigamax Games crew. Be sure to follow Gigamax on YouTube or check back on this playlist page soon for more videos.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Playlist

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Playlist

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is an interesting creation for the Final Fantasy franchise. Characters from every single Final Fantasy game will fight for their lives in spectacular battles, an experience worth trying. It was amazing having a chance to see the characters from the beginning of the series with much more detail their 8-bit sprite forms.

The battles are flashy and exciting but it’ll take some time to uncover all the intricacies Dissidia Final Fantasy NT seems to be hiding. With so many different numbers, stats, and indicators, the game looks like there is plenty of meta and different layers to the combat. However, it doesn’t seem as though this fighter is going to be incredibly competitive. Instead, the developers are working to create a fun fighter for Final Fantasy fans.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Playlist on YouTube

Be sure to check back on this page for all past and future Dissidia Final Fantasy NT videos. Fans of the Final Fantasy franchise, Gigs and Mack were excited to see what the original characters actually look like. No more using imagination to turn those 8-bit sprites into relatable characters. The graphics on modern consoles allows Final Fantasy fans to really see a new side of the original Final Fantasy’s.

Indie Week Celebration: YouTube Playlist

Indie Week Celebration: YouTube Playlist

Indie games have a special place in the Gigamax crew’s heart. For independent organizations, developing, producing and publishing a complete video game isn’t easy. These games are usually put together by small teams that pour their heart and soul into their adventures. Every now and then, Gigamax hosts and Indie Week, showcasing some of the classics and new arrival to the indie game scene.

This is a little look at the indie games the Gigamax crew has celebrated. Be sure to keep checking back for information on upcoming Indie Weeks!

Find the Indie Game playlist below!

Some of the games that make up this playlist include Rocket League, Oxenfree, Cuphead, Enter the Gungeon, The Darwin Project and so many more. With more indie games being released all the time, you can be sure this playlist will continue to expand!

When and Where?

To get a heads up on when the Gigamax Games crew will be featuring indie games on YouTube, follow them on Twitter and Facebook! Also, don’t forget to catch the streams every Tuesday and Thursday where Gigs and Mack play a wide range of different games and genres. Anyone interested in seeing what games are next on the stream schedule, stop over on the stream page for more information!

Time To Celebrate

Let’s celebrate all the hard work that has gone into these works of art. AAA games are of course usually more graphically appealing with larger worlds utilizing their bigger budgets but at the same time, they feel more sterile.

When big corporations get their hands on the creative process of developing a video game, things start to change and often times suffer. Indie games avoid this kind of corporate input and instead, the teams create their own vision without the need to appease their bosses. This is what allows indie developers to truly push the envelope and develop the games they want to make. This kind of passion is worth celebrating and that’s exactly the goal of the Indie Weeks at Gigamax Games.

Eidos Montreal Increasing Focus on Online Experiences

Eidos Montreal Increasing Focus on Online Experiences

Triple A  developer Eidos Montreal, most well known for its Deus Ex series, confirmed plans to focus on online elements. In a blog post on the developer’s website which was initially reported by the gaming publication IGN, the studio’s head David Anfossi said you can expect an “added emphasis” for online play in the developer’s games going forward to improve the experience overall.

“At Eidos-Montreal, we’re constantly working towards creating innovative and exciting experiences for gamers everywhere,” he explained in his post detailing his plans for the future of the company. “In turn, we are placing an added emphasis on the online experiences in our games, striving to continually provide players with content that is memorable and impactful.” (http://bit.ly/2CWdgOY)

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

New Opportunities

Anfossi continued by saying that online play, through its “inherent interactivity,” presents the studio an opportunity for the games it develops to exist for a longer period of time in the market. This comes as no surprise as the company had previously detailed its plans to approach a “games-as-a-service” approach, where a developer launches a game and overtime supports the experience with new content generally for free with the ability to purchase microtransactions. Anfossi also said Eidos Montreal is currently forming teams and tools to support these goals.

Eidos Montreal recently revealed they are working on the new Tomb Raider game, but they have not offered any details on the title. The studio is also working on a new Marvel Avengers game in partnership with Crystal Dynamics, but even less is known about that other than a short teaser trailer.

Deus Ex On Hiatus

Unfortunately for fans of the series, it was reported that Square Enix is putting Deus Ex on hiatus after their last entry, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided because of poor sales figures. Square Enix’s CEO, Yosuke Matsuda, said that the series isn’t going away forever but it is unknown when development will pick it up again.

Eidos Montreal has yet to offer any details on its upcoming projects so little is known about how they plan to approach this new direction. Hopefully, they are able to keep up the strong nature of their single-player campaigns because it is what the studio did so well. Make sure to keep checking back with Gigamax Games for more details on the studio’s future as they become available!
