We sit down with TAIKER, a Mega-Man inspired platformer about a pretty girl and her sassy-ass robot. With gorgeous anime art, great character modeling, and tight controls, it’s an interesting debut from Taiwanese indie dev duo Team 4U. Is this the Mighty No. 9 we all were hoping for? Read on to find out!
Taiker has some troublesome bugs and lacks a nice menu system, but it also has smooth combat and an attractive design. For some of us, that’s enough, but others won’t be able to look beyond the problems.
Hopefully, Team 4U will keep up the good work of supporting Taiker and continue fixing its problems. If they do, Taiker will end up being the must-buy it deserves to be!

Nyko’s new SPEAKERCOM unit gives you game audio and a top-notch mic literally at your fingertips. Eliminating the need for irritating and expensive headsets, this little rechargeable unit is worth a look, especially if you’re XBOX 1 or PS4 mic has you sounding like a McDonald’s drive-thru. We went hands-on with the PS4 version, and there’s a lot to smile about!
This little device really surprised me, and I love it! Check out my full review at KeenGamer.com!
