    Hey guys and gals! James here aka Wade D McGinnis. Today I give you the review for Prey. This is a title similar to System Shock, Bioshock, Dishonored and a little bit of Prop Hunt. For this review I played the game on Playstation 4. Had a number of bugs and really felt torn by this title. Have a look at the review and let me know your thoughts on the game!

  10. Legolas_Katarn liked a post in a topic by Wade D McGinnis in Prey (2017). Hell. Yes.   
    Legolas, there is a part in the game where you will be asked to get a key card around a body that is on fire. Be careful when putting the fire out. This area is very glitchy and you could cause the body and key card to get sucked into the game world. There is no other way to get into this room for the story to progress. So be careful!

    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.

    For their 30 year anniversary Ubisoft will have one more free game to give out next month for their one free game a month promotion but they are also now doing 30 days of giveaways with a new thing every day until 12-23. The first day had a Rayman title for mobile, today it's a 75% discount on something you buy from their store.

    But second day is already somewhat wrong as it is a discount but it is for 75%. Some seem to be games already given away but good for anyone that missed them and they seem to include Assassin's Creed 3 (not sure which version of Prince of Persia that is though).

    Completed: Neon Hardcorpse
    Platform: PC
    Simple top down shooting game that feels unfinished. Three characters that only seem to have a started weapon difference even though levels start giving you a pistol to begin with. Very short. Not terrible to play, not really worth buying unless it's in some bundle (which I assume is how I got it).
     
    Completed: The Chaos Engine
    Platform: PC

    The Chaos Engine is a top down shot em up with a cyberpunk setting and six different upgradeable characters. It feel better to play it with a controller but from a gameplay perspective it can feel outdated when it comes to movement (you can't aim with the right stick) and how savepoints are done. What does make the game more interesting than a lot of similar games is the good looking graphics, six characters with different items and starting abilities, and the ability to increase your characters health, speed, and weapon power every two stages with the money you have found. Another thing setting the game apart is needing an AI partner with you if you do not have a second player, the AI companion actually does surprisingly well for how they usually act in games like this and for the time and you can upgrade their wisdom to make them better (I'm not actually sure how this changes them exactly). There are 16 stages with four different areas to fight through. There are better games like this now but this is still an enjoyable one to play if you find it for a lower price, I actually bought it for such a low price it made me money.
     
    Completed: Tyranny
    Platform: PC

    Excellent story on power, corruption, laws, words. Great opening sequence that builds the world, makes you feel important (you're not) and allows you to be seen as important, effects the world and characters, and allows for more replay value (as do 4 story paths). Interesting setting. Good music and acting. Spell creation varied and simple. Great party members. Poor character art and most talking portraits are just the character models. Trainers are a poorly handled addition and make a bad skill system worse.
     
    Completed: Spikit
    Platform: PC
    Simple bullet hell style arcade game where you have to move around in a small arena to avoid objects coming out from the sides of the screen to hit you. Gets difficult quickly and becomes hard to last long in the parts once the music, rhythm, and movement of the game starts to get fun. You gain some points that can be spent to give your box character different faces or that can be spent to change the color of the game, nothing interesting though.
     
    Completed: Hyper color ball
    Platform: PC
    Ride down a pole and avoid thing coming out of the sides of it by maneuvering around it, picking up different colored balls to refill health, all while Christmas music plays. It's playable but in no way is it good.
