This is going to be one of my tougher reviews. N.E.O. is a hard game to play, not because of difficulty mind you but because the controls didn’t make any sense at all to me. I couldn’t figure out how to move and when I did, the controls suddenly shifted. I am not sure what the developers were trying to do but it just made the game a chore to play.
The game is ostensibly a shoot em up like Asteroids but was very unplayable because of the control issues I mentioned. The music was fine, no complaints there. And the visuals did well to capture the feel of Asteroids done in a modern way but that wasn’t enough to save this. It just made me want to play Asteroids. Or maybe hope for an asteroid to hit Toronto so I wouldn’t have to play this anymore. Fortunately for the rest of Toronto but unfortunately for me, no asteroid collision happened and I continued to try to play.
I previously complained about Skeasy but there at least I could play it even if it was incredibly dull, monotonous and boring. I couldn’t do that much in this game, again because the controls were insane. I felt like a guy who had his first hit of acid and went crazy trying to understand basic concepts. This just didn’t work.
A patch is needed badly to try and give a bit more control. Until then, stay away.

This past weekend new details were revealed for Killer Instinct Season 3 including the full reveal of Kim Wu on the roster with a new backstory and a new attitude ( she comes across like Cassie Cage from MKX a bit). Her moveset looks interesting and she should be fun to play as.
The other news is that the Arbiter from Halo will be the 2nd guest character in Killer Instinct following the announcement of Rash from Battletoads joining the roster. We only got a short tease and no real info but this is exciting.

Bayonetta 2’s reprint is now available on Amazon.com for preorder. For those with Amazon Prime, the game will only cost 24 dollars instead of 30. The game is a standalone re-release and does not include Bayonetta 1 although it is likely Nintendo may discount that game on the eshop soon.
Given the high demand for Bayonetta 2 after the character’s announcement as a DLC character in Super Smash Bros for Wii U and for 3DS, it is likely this will sell fast. In the one hour since I last checked, the game had jumped over 50 spots in the Amazon sales rankings and seems to still be climbing.
You can order the game here.
