  1. Completed: State of Anarchy Platform: PC A colorful top down shooter, move with WASD while aiming and firing with the mouse. It starts of entertaining with colorful doodle style graphics, you begin with a weapon that can fire off one bullet and when you are outside you can get into a car and run enemies over. The goal is to get to a destination fight to a boss in the middle of a building and kill them to end the stage. Dead enemies can drop health or money, money will level you up and ever other level you can take one of four perks to increase health, regeneration, speed, and fire rate, bosses will drop an upgraded gun. The problem with the game is that it doesn't give you variety, you will do the same things, the perks are dull, and weapon upgrades just give you increasing spread shots that might shoot faster. Bosses stand in the center of the area firing at you with the new top of shot you are going to get and your enemies aren't very interesting.
  2. One should have been created earlier today. Angry Army on every platform.
  3. America, D-Day, Normandy, we watched Saving Private Ryan, there was absolutely nothing else to WWII. I'd love to see one developer say something like, we watched Days of Glory or something like that.

  6. Welcome to the AJSA, if you check the PS4 section of the forums or their articles on the homepage you can see what the PS4 community is up to.
  7. Completed: Resident Evil 7 Platform: Xbox One Resident Evil 7 attempts to bring the series back to the survival focused gameplay of the older series entries and away from the action focus of the last few games, for me it completely fails at this. The atmosphere of the starting few areas are what the game does well with good details and gives you areas that you want to explore, unfortunately even this drops in quality in the final two places you go to that have a very bland and uninteresting look to them. The VHS tapes that you find are a nice addition, playing them allows you to see past events and play as different characters, there are only four of these though, and two of them don't even make sense in regards to how they were recorded. Previews of the game seemed to imply that you would be chased around by the Baker family members who were strong and unkillable, forcing you to hide from them. This is actually not true at all as it really only happens once very early in the game and avoiding the character is easily done by just going into the save room and shutting the door on him, a strategy that also works on regular enemies with any door. The combat is poor and awkward with guns and melee weapons almost always feeling weak (with the exception of the shotgun) and not being fun to use, the knife is somehow unable to hit downed enemies unless you duck, your character moves very slowly and can only manage a slightly faster forward walk when you want to get away from something. The enemies themselves are dull, three types of oil like monsters (one that you only see maybe three times) and two types of bugs in one area. They are slow, weak, and can be defeated by doors or just slowly walking past them. Sometimes shots will stagger enemies, sometimes they won't, sometimes they will take five headshots, sometimes they will take 12 it never really makes any sense. Boss fights are horribly designed glitchy messes where they can clearly miss you but still hit, do attacks that clip through objects to hit you, and get stuck on random things in the environment. The survival elements are practically non-existent as we have lost the powerful or one shot kill enemies that have been around for some time, I ended up finishing the game on normal (the most difficult mode available at the start) by only using two items that fully healed me and raised my max health, I could have made about 40+ medkits and had other healing supplies, at no point could the game be considered remotely difficult or tense because of this. Plot necessary items taking inventory space is a time wasting needless thing to bring back, as is the smaller inventory, you will run into sections where you will be carrying very few things, you will go into a room with so many items that you will then need to travel back to the storage box with no enemies or things of interest in your way, sometimes even needing to make multiple trips if you want to collect everything, this seems like it was added to the game to pad out the short length. The story is pretty uninteresting with obvious reveals. The main character barely seem to be effected by anything but moves worse than almost any horror main character I've ever seen, he seemed to have more of a negative reaction to being surrounded by caterpillars in a crawl space than almost anything that happened to him. At times it felt like they wanted to make him a funny B movie style character, which would actually fit well with the main antagonists. In one boss fight the guy you are fighting tears open a fence, grabs a giant pair of scissors, and says "Groovy." Your character then says, "That's not groovy," you can then pick up a chainsaw and I was expecting him to say something like, "This is groovy," instead he says nothing making it all just awkward lines and like they forgot that he is just some average guy who shouldn't be delivering one liners to mutated people while surrounded by body bags. It also feels like they couldn't fully abandon the more action oriented titles of the past by having you fight some giant mutated creatures, one battle being a ridiculous affair where you can just keep jumping from the second story of the area to the first and then slowly climbing back up a ladder to easily avoid the attacks of your enemy. The game is full of jump scares meant for VR where people suddenly appear on screen (sometimes letting you even look in the direction they were supposed to come from, allowing you to see them just appear out of nowhere), grab you, and then scream in your face. The game is actually far more gross than scary, like watching a bad "horror" movie like Drag Me To Hell where somehow vomit and bugs are supposed to scare you. They start making cheap attempts to scare you such as having random noises around the area and sounds from monsters that will never show up but anyone who has played enough video games will know this, and even if I was worried about being suddenly attacked you are so well equipped to handle everything that it wouldn't matter. I was willing to give them some credit by never having the little girl start singing but they even managed to throw that cliche in near the very end. The game also includes two endings, with almost nothing changing from a gameplay perspective, seeing them requires you to play the worst parts of the game again after making a choice in the previous section. They didn't even have the decency to give you a save point after the game's worst boss fight, forcing you to fight it over again to get back to the choice. Something that feels like them trying to add to the length of the game or to pretend there is more replay value. I didn't think it would be possible, but I actually liked Resident Evil 6 more than this, if only because of the few decent moments it had and the so bad it's funny moments in it. Completed: Shantae: ½ Genie Hero Platform: Vita Cutest stage selection screen. Good art style and levels design. Usual magic and hair attacks as well as multiple transformations with different attacks and dance abilities. Can easily farm money for upgrades if you want an easier time and you can switch off upgrades and skills to make it more difficult. A hardcore mode for more of a challenge. Going back to stages can change enemies and some details. Some transformations are really only used to get extra items or are made mostly useless by other forms, it would have been nice to see them used more in certain areas, the short length of the game and low number of stages likely prevented that. I'd recommend it but I think it's probably the weakest game in the series, although there should be DLC for it with new stages, and the ability to play as Risky should be added soon, which I assume would be somewhat like playing as Shantae in the previous game. Those additions could make for improvements, more gameplay, and more options.
  8. Yeah, it sounds like the focus was much more on the multiplayer this time around.
  9. Weird seeing reaction vlog Youtubers shift from, "The Illuminati is trying to destroy us Youtubers and are taking away our ads by pretending some of us do bad things," to "This Youtuber is abusing his children for views." Whatever brings in their own views I guess.
  10. Dawn of War 3 reviews are starting to be published, response has been positive so far. It is also selling for only $44.99 on GMG if you were interested in it.
  11. Looks like it is also free on Steam as well
  12. Saints Row 2 is free on GOG for the next two days. GOG connect will also allow you to add Saints Row 3, 4, and Gat Out of Hell to your GOG collection if you own them on Steam, I just have the regular edition of Saints Row 4 and it added the version with all of the DLC to my GOG collection.
  13. No one should be, it wasn't anything we would have intended to or wanted to have changed with the update.
