  1. Game seems alright. Can't join people due to Ubisoft's server issues though.
  2. Completed: Blue Estate Platform: PC Blue Estate is a rail shooter that misses the thing that makes them most enjoyable, a well made lightgun which we really haven't had since the PS2 and Xbox and likely not something the vast majority of PC players will have. You will aim your mouse cursor over 100s of enemies in each of the game's seven levels trying to shoot them before a targeting reticle films up to tell you that they are about to hit you, enemies die in one shot to the head, with a nut shot, or with a few body hits. Story wise the characters and jokes would be like playing House of the Dead Overkill if it was more offensive, none of the jokes landed, and it wasn't a homage to a film style. There are only seven levels and the game is short but the levels each overstay their welcome and their are three badly designed and long boss fights, luckily the game is so easy that it is unlikely that you will die and have to replay a level (I don't actually know where it restarts you if you die as I never ran out of health). The game will require you to push an arrow key or swipe the mouse in a direction to beat QTE events, knock back thrown weapons, or to deal with frequent annoyances like your hair falling in your eyes or throwing off a dog that is humping your leg. There are a few moments where you can hold the reload button to take cover but there is never any real reason to do this, a scoring system that really doesn't matter, and in each mission you will find a second more powerful weapon that I ended up never liking more than the default pistol as I only went for headshots and they had a much longer reload time, some of them just didn't have enough ammo or shot too slowly to even be viable in some situations.
  3. Never played 2 or 2142. I'd probably say Battlefield 1.

  8. Completed: Ronin Platform: PC RONIN is a combination of real time and turn based stealth game with some story elements taken from Kill Bill. You can walk and climb on walls but most of the game is spent leaping from place to place and using a grappling hook to swing or pull yourself to walls and ceilings. When enemies spot you they will aim their guns at you showing you a red line showing where their bullets come from, you are then only able to jump and can see how far you can cover on your turn before they fire, you will need to tackle your enemies to bring them down and then spend a turn killing them with your sword. As you finish levels you can earn skill points by completing bonus objectives allowing you to throw your sword, recall it, knock enemies down with shuriken, use a decoy, etc by earning time based points by killing and hitting enemies. There are good ideas behind the game but it ends up being short, the level design is linear and can often be finished easily if you get a stealth hanging ability, only three enemy types, repeated objectives, and there are occasionally problems where the UI that shows you where your jump will go but will be wrong.
  9. Welcome to the AJSA
  10. Completed: For Honor Platform: PC For Honor is a multiplayer focused melee combat game that combines Samurai, Vikings, and Knights. The backstory of the game is that there was a catastrophic event that led to war between the three factions for hundreds of years, each of the three has taken up a large portion of a continent and are fighting for control. In the single player game, a warlord is trying to bring things back to the way they were in the past when things start to become more peaceful and warriors aren't as strong as they used to be. The campaign acts more like a tutorial, which is odd and annoying since the game does a tutorial when you start it and everything is immediately repeated in the first few campaign missions. The campaign offers four difficulty modes with the most difficult one removing the UI that tells you where to guard your enemies attacks (something that is even available in multiplayer). The higher the difficulty the faster you level up which will unlock different traits and abilities you can equip before each mission. The campaign will have you playing as most of the different classes of the game and once the actual tutorial style guiding is over it acts more as a practice mode for each of the character types, there is some backstory to the world to be found, some amusing cutscenes, and some sections that change things up a little bit but the real reason to buy the game is the multiplayer. The game offers 12 different types of soldiers fast Katana wielding Samurai, dual axe or sword wielding characters, a naginata user, shield and flair, halberd, club, and others. Each character has unique moves, executions, emotes, and ways to customize them. The game offers 1vs1, 2vs2, and three different kinds of 4vs4 modes. One of the three modes is an elimination game where players have one life but can be revived if they weren't executed, one has you controlling points on a map while fighting weak AI soldiers that battle over the middle point and one has you playing a deathmatch with respawns. Combat involves guarding your left, right, or top section with you holding your weapon in that place to block attacks coming from that direction, you can also guard break and throw your enemies, parry, counter, dodge, and certain combo attacks can lead to you to perform unblockable or uninterruptible attacks. Attacking and blocking attacks quickly will raise a meter that activates your character revenge mode which will heal you or improve your abilities, this is primarily used when you are getting attacked by two or more opponents at once. Each character can have their appearance changed and has access to four different feat buttons, with each one having three different abilities you can assign to it. Gear can be found and changed for each character which can affect your stats, some of these can be overpowered but they will only be used on the point capture game mode. The game is very enjoyable though there can still be some balance issues and the servers aren't perfectly stable, with a plan to add new free content in a similar way as Rainbow Six Siege and with how different characters are there can be a lot to learn and a lot of ways to expand on the game over time. Problems are the typical Ubisoft ones, server issues, daily challenges made difficult to complete due to poor matchmaking choices, taking too long to get cosmetics for your characters, and I don't think the developer even knows how grab counters work (even changing how they work with the first update the game received).
  11. Reviews are coming out for Horizon Zero Dawn, with most of them being extremely positive. Jeff Gerstmann (5/5) Kirk McKeand (5/5) Reid McCarter (6/10) Peter Brown (9/10) Lucy O'Brian (9.3/10) Chris Carter (7.5/10) Jim Sterling (9.5/10) Philip Kollar (9.5/10) Julian Benson (No score, "Horizon Zero Dawn: the Good, the Bad, and the Boring") Caty McCarthy (2.5/5) Horizon Zero Dawn - A Spoiler Free Appraisal Negative reviews or parts of reviews seem to focus on repetition and generic open world style busywork, while everyone seems to praise the visuals.
  12. Haven't seen those guys for some time and apart from one GM we got who ran a great game and then we never heard from him again they couldn't really find anyone with experience running a game. Some other people have started groups, not sure which are still going on. Another Commander runs a 5th Edition D&D campaign.

  15. Completed: Gun-Nac Platform: NES Good vertical shoot em up where a mage girl summons a ship from another dimension in front of a military meeting to fight attacking rabbits, cigarettes, lighters, floating mirrors, battleships, etc. Five weapons, different bomb types, stronger versions of each type of shot, attachable wings that give you an extra hit and let you become more powerful. English version removed part of the into and the ending, changed the final boss appearance, and referred to your character as being a guy.
