Disability Game Review: Super Smash Bros for WII U
Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U is one of the best party games in recent memory. From the standpoint of accessibility, there are some problems, but compared to the 3DS version, the Wii U version is miles ahead when it comes to being playable for disabled gamers.
This past weekend I downloaded a brand new game on Steam from the makers of the hit stealth platformer Mark of the Ninja. Invisible, Inc. mixes XCOM with Splinter Cell and gives it a very cool Sci-Fi feel with an angular, cel-shaded art style. From the standpoint of accessibility, Invisible, Inc. is able to offer a refreshing level of challenge for most gamers without posing many accessibility barriers.
Yesterday Ubisoft unveiled a release date, and details for the upcoming Assassin's Creed: Syndicate. While we don't know much about the game, we do know that it is set in London during the industrial revolution, and that players will more then likely be able to play as Jacob and Evie Frye, a brother and sister assassin team.
Mortal Kombat X is the follow-up to the much loved 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot. The game features some great new kharacters as well as plenty of returning klassics, beautifully gruesome visuals, enough kontent to keep any player busy, and a kombat system that is easy to enjoy, even for those new to the genre. Happily from the standpoint of accessibility, Mortal Kombat X does a lot to ensure that anybody kan enjoy it, no matter what their physikal ability.
To be honest, I preordered Codename: S.T.E.A.M. to make sure that I got the nifty Majora's Mask pin that came with it, but when I sat down to play it I was both pleasantly surprised and a little bewildered by this comic book inspired turn-based strategy game for the Nintendo 3DS. Codename: S.T.E.A.M. boasts some impressive accessibility features, as well as some unusual barriers for this type of game.
