  1. 91) Words for Evil Platform: PC You know those free iPhone games where there's a bunch of letters and all you do is link on letter to the next to create a complete sentence? This is that game, but with RPG element & parties. You attack by creating words, but only if that letter is colored. The more colored letters you create, the better skill you'll unleash depending on your character. If you create more than 3 letter words, the blocks will explode & hit other colored letters in its vicinity. If you have more than 1 party, the party members will have different colors on them. Aside from battle, there's an "avoid this deadly trap by creating words" minigame, "open this treasure box by creating a specific word" minigame & "your lifebar is gone. Create a 6 to 7 letter word to revive or else you're dead" minigame. It's quite a lot of fun. The best character in the game is undeniably this werewolf dude that lets you heal yourself after you transform and do an attack. He is the MVP of this game. So much so that I can get past many of the stages just by himself and by the end I have to let myself get killed to finish the game since this game is endless after you beat the final dragon boss. 92) THOTH Platform: PC A dual stick shooter game where you're a circle & you shoot other shapes. Then after you beat the final stage, you become a circle in the sky Then you probably become one the colored shapes from that monolith thing in 2001 Space Odyssey. Or a kaleidoscopes color I don't know WTF
  2. Welcome to the forum! I see that you were in Night School? I just watched that film! Keep up the good work with the roles and we might see you in even more films in the future. BTW Joe unfortunately isn't here nowadays, only a couple of us + moderators are. If you want to talk to more people, the discord is the place to be. https://discordapp.com/invite/FkRFNGT
  3. Ahaha, Korean mmo games. I remember these things are all over the place when I was in secondary school. Ragnarok Online was the bomb with my classmates and they always go to the nearest internet cafe to play that thing. Plus Counter Strike + DOTA. I only went to those things once in my local mall just to play Counter Strike, but only a 2 hour session cause my dad was busy with stuff. Never go to those places again cause I ain't payin hourly fees when I can just play at home on my PC! Here's a surprising game that I never got the chance to play until recently. A really damn good VN game that got translated into English 10 years after its release called 428 Shibuya Scramble. This game had FUNKY ass music that pumps me up for whatever is going to happen next, and also really damn sad songs that makes me tear up. Get this game now, it's well worth it.
  4. Ahhhh game shows, those things on TV which are guaranteed to be fun for the whole family. I went to EVO and there's a "game show" network at the Luxor hotel there which are ALL about game shows. Family Feud, America Says, Idiotest, the Chase, and Wheel of Fortune were the shows me and my pal watched while we stayed there in our hotel room, and we watched that channel for HOURS, right after we finished hanging around EVO and playing fighting games of course. Watching that whole channel was just as hype as it was watching the top 8 of the fighting game tournaments that were there. These shows are truly the OG crowd pleaser. After I went home from EVO, I was in a mood for game show shenanigans on youtube, and it is a goldmine of funny shit. Here's a couple that I just lol hard at. Share your favorite game show vids as well, maybe from some underrated shows that no one knows but you cause well, a good laugh fun is always great to have!
  5. I played Time Splitters 3 first, then I played 2 both of which are damn fun. Playing a fan remade version of 2, and probably 3 as well would be great. Good thing is Crytek UK gave this game their blessing, so it's just a matter of when the game's out. And it'll be for free so WOHOO, I CAN'T WAIT!
  6. Yep..... Stadia ain't looking so good. Pricing is fucked, the internet requirement for that thing is fucked up, and pretty much everyone who owns a PC already have a better gaming library than what it had to offer. It's definitely a good idea, but it's gonna take 5+ years until our internet goes beyond 35mbs for just a basic internet package. Like VR, we need to wait until its ready for mass audience consumption. And E3...... why did they have to fuck up and leak contact info like that??
  7. Fun fact: This game had been under my radar since 2008 when it was on the Wii. Unfortunately the game was never translated to English so I couldn't play it even if I wanted to...... until 2018 when this game was released in English, but by that time I was playing other games. So now I finally played this game after a recent Steam Sale that drops the game price from $70 to $14 (what a discount!). I am so damn glad I played this game because this game is FUCKING AMAZING!! HOLY SHIT, this game earned its legendary cult status for a reason! The plot of this game is initially simple enough. A girl named Maria Osawa was kidnapped, and the kidnappers demanded that her twin sister Hitomi deliver the ransom money in front of the Hachiko statue, aka that dog statue that's in a couple of games & films in the past. Of course, it doesn't go as smoothly as hoped. Some shenanigans happen during the ransom exchange, and so begins this roller coaster of a ride filled with suspense, plot twists, surprisingly heartfelt moments & a lot of funny ass shit. And I fucking love it! Unlike most VNs where you only have 1 main character to keep track of, this game has 5. Achi: a young dude who likes to clean up the streets & stumbled upon Hitomi so they have to run away from the kidnappers that want to catch her Kano: an inexperienced detective who is trying his best to follow the footstep of a detective he idolizes, while also trying to get the approval of his father in law to marry his girlfriend. Oh the family drama. Minorikawa: a freelance reporter that likes to points at stuff & is trying his best to help his former boss pay off his loan shark debt Osawa: the father of Maria & Hitomi who is trying to figure out what the kidnappers want and Tama: a girl that got stuck in a cat costume. And she holds so many secrets that I can't say anything more. Sounds overwhelming, but the game handles this extremely well. See the game is like the show 24 where you follow these 5 characters but in the span of 1 hour per episode/chapters. So when the game begins, you follow what the characters are doing from 10:00 - 11:00 am, and then the next chapters pretty much follow the same hourly patterns up until the very end of the game where everything comes together. Now you might be thinking "I'll just follow 1 character from the beginning to the end for every one of these chapters then", but the game actually does something quite clever in making you jump through different characters. In this game, you have to switch to another character constantly because most of the time you will reach a "keep out" sign which signifies that you have to change into another character first to proceed to the next stage of that character, or a bad end will happen when you're just following 1 character. So for example: You play as Minorikawa & you're just following his story of him riding a taxi to his former boss' office. All of a sudden, Kano just jumps into the taxi asking for a ride, but eventually, Kano just gave up and left. Unfortunately because of that interruption, Minorikawa arrived ad his boss' office too late & the boss killed himself. BAD END. So what you have to do is change your character to Kano and then pick the option to NOT go into the taxi, which makes the game proceed to the next stage. There are many times where this happen, and the game has 85 bad ends. JAEZUS! Luckily these bad ends are what makes the game fun to play & some of them are just hilarious that you pretty much play the game to get these bad endings. Hell in one of these bad endings, you pretty much can get a game over because you ran into a cockroach after another character threw that thing away, and then in the end you dedicated your life to cleaning the streets so there are no more cockroaches. Another one is this bad end where Kano meets his father in law too early & the game ends with him becoming a farmer & happily marrying his girlfriend. How the hell is marrying the girl you love a bad end?? @_@ I also love the presentation of this game because everything is either played in cheesy live action, or still photographs of these actors/actresses doing silly stuff with photoshopped images in the background. You can very much tell that the cast and crew of this game were having a DAMN good time just posing & acting these scenes out. You know what else I love about this game? The damn soundtrack. When the intro of the game begins and I heard this hype as hell music, I know I'm in for something great. What's great about this song is that everytime you complete the chapters for everyone, there's a preview of the next upcoming 1 hour with this awesome song playing, which just makes your blood pumped & excited to see what's next. The rest of the songs are filled with so many great tunes that makes each scenes enjoyable to watch, whether they're comedic scenes, suspense scenes or scenes that makes you want to tear up. The only thing that I don't like about this game is very nitpicky: you can't skip texts. You know how in VN games you can just press CTRL to skip dialogues so you can get to the next part quicker? Well you can't do that here. Good thing is this game has a pretty useful autoscroll so you don't have to click all the time to see the next sections, but having the skip function will be pretty nice. But that's ok though because I played this game for 25 hours straight from the beginning to the end, anticipating what the next twists of this game are, and in the end I ended up freaking loving every single thing I experienced. Not only is the 25 hours journey freaking awesome, but after finishing the game, there's actually a buttload of extra stuff for you to see, like the stories of the various side characters of this game, and one particular extra story which is so damn cool. If you get the true ending of the game, you get to see an extra chapter about one of the characters in this game named Canaan, and surprise surprise, this chapter is created by Nasu from Type-Moon. YES, the guy who made Tsukihime & the Fate series, so the chapter is very much like playing one of his linear VNs, complete with Fate like animations & voice acting. And fun fact: that extra chapter & this entire game is actually a prequel to the anime Canaan which takes place 2 years after this game. Now I want to see that anime! That's why my rating for this game is "so awesome that I am now going to watch the Canaan anime & wait for Canaan to hopefully be included in Fate Grand Order". AKA 9.9 out of 10 with a badass seal of approval! You know what I just realized? This game is made by the same dev who made Danganronpa & the Zero Escape games, so you bet your ass that this game is that damn awesome. And what's amazing is that this game was made 1 year before Zero Escape, so this game is actually the one who started the "prepare to get your mind blown" format of those other 2 games. Funny how we finally get to play this game in English in 2018 eh? Go get the game to complete the what I call "mind-blowing mystery adventure collection", and prepare to enjoy the ride!
  8. 88) UNDEFEATED Platform: PC Not to be confused with that 2011 documentary film about a football team. This is a free game that 3 students from Osaka made, and it's pretty much an Unreal Engine 4 Superman simulator. You can fly, run really fast & beat the crap out of enemies + bosses. Don't expect much from this game as all you do is complete obstacle challenges, fight a couple of weak bad guys with ease, and then do 3 boss fights where all you do is fly to them, hit them with a ranged attack until they're stunned then beat the crap out of them, rinse and repeat. The end. Gotta say though, there is definitely potential for a really fun longer game. The base is here, and all this game needs are more enemy variety, customizable abilities, more destruction & more locations for you to fly and wreck stuff up. Can't wait to see if the 3 people who made this game will create another game in the future! 89) Necrovision Platform: PC This game was back when Painkiller, aka FPS games that tries to be Doom but with more religious supernatural elements were all a thing, before DOOM in 2016 blew this genre out of the water and reclaimed the throne. This game was fun, but unfortunately it's hindered by the floaty imprecise gun controls & enemies that likes to move so damn much all over the place that it's hard to get a straight shot most of the time, and for some damn reason your machine guns spray bullets so damn fast that you'll end up using single shot bullets or use your melee attacks most of the time to save that ammo. I like how it has vampires that pretty much are more like ninja predators that does Tony Jaa roundhouse kick acrobatics than being, you know, actual vampires. Cool design for these guys. It's weird that this game's ending actually gets better when you play on the lower difficulty. I have never seen any other game does that. Most of the time its either you purposefully pick the worst options to get the worse ending, or be like Drakengard where you just play multiple times & have the ending go from optimistic to....... whatever this is AHHHHH GET THEM OFF ME!!!! 90) 428: Shibuya Scramble Platform: PC If you're a fan of Danganronpa & the Zero Escape games, this was released 1 year before Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors & the one that started the "mindbending mystery" games Spike Chunsoft created. It was translated to English in 2018, 10 years after this game was released in Japan back in 2008, and it is a joy to finally experience this VN. Now I'm watching the anime sequel Canaan that takes place 2 years after this game. Can't wait to see how the story continues!
  9. 86) Distraint 2 Platform: PC Remember the first Distraint where you play as a guy who feels really2 guilty after he evicted a kind old lady from her house just so he can be promoted in his work? This is the aftermath of that, which pretty much takes place in his own mind as he journey through his past & learn to forgive himself for what he did, and also uncovering details of his traumatic childhood to finally let go of his guilt. I like the ending, quite uplifting considering the first game was so freaking sad. There definitely won't be a Distraint 3 that's for sure, and I like that! I don't want to see things going downhill after all that self-reflection I went through! 87) A Hat in Time Platform: PC Ahhh, now this is a nice game. Where Yooka-Laylee was supposed to be the spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie but doesn't quite hit the mark in a couple of places, Hat in Time definitely hit the mark & exceeds my expectations by how damn good moving around is, and also how full of various stuff the 5 in game worlds have. You have a world full of asshole mafias that you can beat the crap out of; a world where you star in films, even one where it's a murder mystery which is one of my favorite stage in the game; one part in a haunted forest where you sneak in a mansion and, jeezus, be spooked beyond belief by this monster queen Vanessa which I did not see coming at all; and the boss battles in these worlds are really damn fun, each with kickass music to accompany them. Especially the Snatcher's theme I can't wait for the sequel & see more worlds to explore! And perhaps you can have mustache girl be a friend this time instead of an enemy. Poor girl wasn't even a true bad guy in the first place, the NPCs in the game are!
  10. 83) RED HOT VENGEANCE Platform: PC A free game shoot em up game which is like Sin City meets a bit of Hotline Miami minus the hard as hell difficulty, so expect a lot of internal monologues, black + white + red colors & blood everywhere. There's a fun easter egg with the main character going to the bathroom & monologuing every single bit of it before continuing shooting, and he gives one solution of what happened when you run out of toilet paper: use your sock...... WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT BEFORE??? The game ends on a sequel hook, so I look forward to that happening. 84) Tetris Effect Platform: PS4 When I heard about this game last year, I was like "oh, it's Tetris with funky music that follows your every move? That's cool, but it's still too expensive". With the PC version out recently & it being Epic Games exclusive, and also much cheaper on PSN Singapore, I decided to buy it on PS4. Horray for patience! As for the game itself, now I know what this game truly is: it's Tetris, but with a "freeze" mechanic once you fill the bar to make clearing blocks easier, and it's made by the same guy who made Rez, Child of Eden & Lumines, AKA those games that lets you create your own version of a song by shooting/ solving puzzles in tune with the music. So what you get is FUCKING MAGICAL. OMG this game's soundtrack made Tetris 10 times better. So many funky music for every single stages, all with their own colorful backgrounds ranging from the ocean, to the desert, mountain, and even an Indonesian Kecak dance which I didn't expect. There are frustrating parts of this game which annoys me, and all involving how freaking random the Tetris speed can be in stages. So in that Indonesian Kecak dance section for example, the blocks fall at a steady pace in the beginning, but when you reached phase 3 of the song, the blocks suddenly goes apeshit and just drop down in a freaking instant without warning, making me flip out & fuck up my perfect plan for my Tetris combos! And this game does this all the freaking time. A song can immediately drop fast in the beginning of a stage, and then drop even faster on the next section of the song, only to then slow down at the end. The final stage of the game though, HOLY FUCK that stage is fucking relentless. The song that accompanies is like if Pitch Perfect is on steroids. Not only do you have to clear 90 blocks total to beat it, but once you break 60 blocks, the speed just goes fucking apeshit & you will need 1 second reaction time to instantly drop your block at the right spot. I had to replay this stage God knows how many times until I finally beat it. By the end of it, you're greeted with a light show of the galaxy & the song from the first stage of the game playing in the background to congratulate you, which is another thing that this game dev did with Child of Eden as well, only without the live action girl singing. Will I play this game again? Yes, but I need to recover after playing that damn last stage over and over again! 85) Do Not Feed the Monkeys This is pretty much one of those Stalking game like Beholder (which has the same publisher as this game) or Double Switch where you have to stalk people, ahem I mean "monkeys" while you have to earn money to pay your rent, buy food & buy more camera feeds for your surveillance system or else its game over. Managing your hunger, health & sleep meter while working + stalking while giving necessary intel about each "monkeys" to your employer is the name of the game here. The cool part about this game though is that the people you can see in the cameras are randomized, so you'll see different people/ places to stalk every time you start a game/ load a save file and decided to buy a new camera feed. The best part of the game is the different outcomes each people in the cameras can have. So lets say for example that there's a camera which shows an old janitor stuck in an elevator somewhere. By monitoring him and searching the internet from words he said, you'll be able to deduce which building he's stuck in & contact his wife to get him the hell out, but of course alternatively you can just let him get stuck in that elevator, or receive a bribe from a lawyer to let that man die. I get him out though because it's the right thing to do, and you'll be rewarded with an item that you can sell for $100+, giving you more money for your everyday needs, and also a well paid job as a janitor which is more than what most jobs you get will give you. And this is just 1 out of 10+ many scenarios you can encounter! I got the best ending of the game because I bought all the cameras as required & help many of the people in the camera feeds with their personal problems while also paying rent regularly & eat healthy fruit for myself, and I "don't feed the monkeys" because hey, those monkeys don't need food anyway so I don't need to. XD
  11. Bought lots of games from Steam sale, but only had time to play a few since I'm busy traveling with my parents. Now that they returned home, I FINALLY HAVE TIME TO FINISH THEM! AHAHAHAHA!!! 80) The MISSING: J.J. Macfield and the Island of Memories Platform: PC Gaahhh, so annoyed that D4 will never have its season 2..... for now. But at least we got Swery's next game. And surprisingly, it's his most normal and ground to earth game so far, second being Spy Fiction. Finally got to play this game after waiting for the price to go down. This is...... quite an interesting game. I think it's one of the only few puzzle platformer games I have played where getting yourself heavily injured through cuts & bone dislocation actually is required to get through the next stage. And I like how down to earth this game is. Even though it has Swery's stuff like having another character named FK + WTF moments like the backward speeches & moose head doctor amongst other things, it all ends up making sense in the very end. And I like how after you beat the game, you get alternate costumes after the game's reveal & you can pretty much replay the entire game with all-new lines so it encourages replayability, though that's pretty much it unless you haven't collected all the donuts. I miss games that do these things. 81) Team Fortress 2 Platform: PC Played this game to get the points during that Steam store racing metagame, and then I realized that I actually still have 20000 points from playing other games which I can't use since I didn't buy too much stuff to get more maximum points so...... Regardless, man..... this game takes me back. Nowadays Overwatch does the team based battle WAY better since you got lots of characters that have their own unique things besides weapons that makes them really fun and different to play. TF2 does have them, but it's way more limiting since most characters only have different weapons without skills, though this game was the one that set the standard back then & it's still fun to play after all this time. That is of course if the server you're in doesn't crap out with lags, you're not getting headshot all the freaking time by Mick Mundy or getting Dell's turrets shooting at you over and over again. Yes, that's Sniper & Engineer's real name. I still watch the youtube shorts when I feel like watching em. Especially this one: Personally I like these better than Overwatch's shorts. It's a lot funnier & not with superhero cliches. The comics are so freaking hilarious. Can't wait for more! 82) Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death Platform: PC I had this game for a LONG time, but when I played this game again, all my save file was on my other computer, so I had to restart all over again. Hate it when that happens! This is pretty much a God of War (PS2) clone, with less budget, less QTE kills, more annoying hard to kill enemies & less fluid controls, but a lot more minigames which includes railshooters & plane 2D shoot em up segments. It's a fun ride that's for sure, and it's helped with the funny banters your Marlow Briggs has with Steve Blum along the way, even if some of the comments are repeated after you make combos. The weirdest thing about this game is the way a lot of the cutscenes play out. It's like if the cutscene plays out normally it would look less cool, so they decide to freeze frame everyone and change the poses everytime the camera pans on something. The song that accompanies it is pretty cool, but when this happens every time you beat a boss & when you acquire a weapon, it just makes you wish the scenes play out like normal. Shame that there's no sequel to this game since it ends on a sequel hook. I would love to see how this tale continues.
  12. 78) Bohemian Killing Platform: PC Now this is an interesting one. Basically you've killed someone, and you have to make an excuse to avoid getting the guilty verdict in court. The reverse Ace Attorney if you will. You're given the version of events that the people in court know, like "at 10:30 am the suspect is sighted in a hotel" or something similar like that. Then what you have to do is pretty much make stuff up to paint yourself as innocently as you can, while being consistent with witnesses testimony so you can make what they saw/ know a complete misunderstanding. The interesting thing is that while you're recounting your story, you will come across items like "a letter addressed to a friend of yours", or "letter from a company which supports your work" which will be included in the evidence bag. Instead of the evidence actually working against you and make you even more guilty, they surprisingly help making you look even more innocent in this whole thing. After collecting the evidence and making sure to testify according to the facts, I actually got the innocent verdict regardless of whether I actually killed the victim or deny it because as it turns out, the victim was actually working for someone else that planned to steal your invention blueprint which you plan to give to the government, and the victim attacked you first by smashing your head so badly that you bled, so in the end even if you testify to killing her, it's all in self-defence. Well....... that worked out well! That is of course unless you fucked up and tell complete bullshit that doesn't line up with the facts at all which of course will get you jailed immediately. The game had a glitch where when I pause the game while I am on an elevator, I fell through the world & had to jump in a specific spot to get back in, and there's also one where if I pause the game when someone is talking, that someone will repeat their sentence from the beginning, but good thing you can skip the dialogue. Quite a fun game with rough edges here and there. Can't wait to see the game dev make another game, whenever that will be. 79) Muse Dash Platform: PC I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH! HOLY CRAP THIS IS AWESOME!! This was originally an iPhone game & it's pretty much a rhythm game with only 2 buttons. It's simple but hard to master & the music are fucking incredibly good. So much so that I played many of the songs over and over again until I can't get them out of my head. Then proceed to find if there's a full version of the songs & download them, and thankfully I found them! I highly recommend this game for lovers of rhythm games. You will play the crap out of this game & hum the tunes all day long!
  13. 74) My Friend Pedro (full PC version) Platform: PC At last, after this game's preview at E3 2018, and after playing the flash game, the circle of Pedro is now complete. Even the launch trailer is awesome As for the game itself, it's like the flash game on steroids with more platforming puzzles that makes you have to shoot switches to open up locked platforms. There's 40 levels in this game and each levels has rankings depending on how long your killing combos are. If you can kill everyone in sight without resetting the kill combo, you'll definitely get S rank easy, though it's impossible in some stages since you have to do platforming puzzles which resets the combo multiplier. Good thing is you can rack up the points if you play the game on the hardest difficulty which reduces your healthbar to just 1 and makes almost every enemy shots very deadly, if you like racking up points that is, otherwise you can just enjoy the game without care which will take around 3 - 4 hours to complete. Shame it's that short and the only replayability is just you trying to S rank every stage, but it's still a lot of fun regardless. 75) BirdGut Platform: PC This is a free Steam game where you play as a deformed insect that's thrown out of your home, and you're eaten by a bird. So your goal is to get out of that bird while traveling through its intestines. Interestingly this bird's intestine is pretty much a factory for insects, so you'll see each intestines having their own divisions & workers. It's like Bugs Life, only with modern tools! 76) Assault Spy Platform: PC This is quite an entertaining game. Basically, this game is what happens when you take Dante & turn his sword + Yamato loadout into a single character, and then make his fist gauntlet + Pandora's box + Ebony & Ivory loadout into another character. Then make it all anime as hell. The plot of the game is pretty much this: You're a spy working to steal info from a robot factory. Then you get inside the robot factory & turns out the factory is taken over. Then plot twists left and right ensues which I can't say because it's quite fun to go through. I hope there's a sequel to this game. The combat is quite fun even though it's pretty much and elseworld DMC & I would love to see more characters with their own special move lists added. 77) Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Platform: PC OHOHOHOHO MAN, the creator of Symphony of the Night has come back to make his own game universe with the same Metroidvania stuff he's known for, and it is beautiful! Freaking Snake is cast as one of the cast which was the main character of the 8 bit throwback game Curse of the Moon? Shovel Knight is also here? There's many unashamedly cheeky Castlevania esque enemies & areas put together? There's THIS? Alucard is also here, right down to having the same voice actor?? And there's even giant dogs & cats as enemies?? This game is freaking awesome. My nostalgia sense was tingling every step of the way I play this game from the beginning right down to the very end after I completed 99.80% of the entire map. IGA, well done. You made your kickstarter goal & created the game that everyone requested, and you added so many more awesome stuff in it, including free upcoming dlcs. This game is definitely one of the best of 2019 & I can't wait to play the upcoming dlcs!
  14. 71) Dead Space 2 Platform: PC Since RE2 Remake was damn good, I'm in the mood for RE4 - 6 esque shooter esque games of the past. One of them being Dead Space, 2 specifically because that's my personal favorite. Now that I replayed 2, it has aged really damn well & still really damn fun to play. It doesn't scare me one bit since there's too many obnoxious jump scares, all except that fucking eye needle section that I still am scared to play even now. Shudder. Still, all that matters is that it's still so much fun killing necromorphs by dismembering their limbs by any means necessary, and the natural futuristic HUD in this game is still very refreshing to see, though I do wish that you can skip cutscenes so that I can get through the talking parts that I already listened to before. 72) The Surge Platform: PC This is that game from the maker of Lords of the Fallen, that game which has a smooth fast paced combat with Dark Souls mechanics. This one still has Dark Souls mechanics, but the combat emphasizes more on aiming enemy limbs so you can perform fatalities on them and get separate gears & materials for each limbs. And it takes place in a futuristic setting where there's a lot of robots & people that went haywire and tries to kill everyone in their sight. I actually played this game last year, then I got really bored with it because the grinding in this game is so damn obnoxious that I had to kill 30+ enemies just to upgrade my gears, and no matter how much I upgrade, it seems that my character dies so quickly that I question if there's any need to upgrade at all. When I got back to playing this game, turns out there's actually implants that significantly upgrades your max HP, but I found it WAY LATE in the game which suddenly turns the game from way too hard and grindy to actually being a normal Souls esque game...... WHY CAN'T I ACQUIRE THE HEALTH UPGRADE MUCH EARLIER??? This game actually achieves one of the rarest things in gaming nowadays: it has a final level that destroys any good thing it had before. The game starts fun, then it becomes boring, then it becomes fun again towards the end, then the end section has to add a fuckload of mazes for you to navigate through which sucks the fun out of it. The entire games' level design have mazes in the form of maintenance tunnels that sometimes can lead you to a shortcut to your savepoint. It's all well and good, but the final level in this game went WAAAYYY too far with putting so many hard to kill enemies & making navigation a pain in the fucking ass because there's so many freaking maintenance tunnels that looks the same, so much so that I actually went in circles 5 times just trying to figure out a way out to my save point. By the time I beat the final boss, I immediately uninstall the game & don't want to play it anymore. THANK GOD that's over with! Oh please don't let Surge 2 have any more of those annoying mazes to deal with! 73) My Friend Pedro ( flash) Platform: PC To prepare myself for the upcoming insanity of a game that is My Friend Pedro, I decided to go back to a previous version of this game, which is a flash game that can be played here. https://www.crazygames.com/game/my-friend-pedro It's definitely way simpler than the upcoming game, but it's still fun. You can slow mo & shoot guys with style, though there's no score to rack up & you can't do the stylish stuff that the upcoming game has. The final boss though is quite crazy, that I can't wait to see if the Steam version will have a similar level. Only 1 week to go!
  15. I don't mean "I don't care about the lore" in THAT way. I mean I'll just enjoy the game for what it is because it's not going to affect the plot of the films anyway. I played all the great Star Wars game from the Super SNES games right down to my personal favorites Jedi Outcast + Jedi Academy, which I love so much because they nail the lightsaber part so damn right and they have good Star Wars story even though they're non canon. I actually quite enjoyed the newer films. Force Awakens more than the Last Jedi. They don't suck, they just have different story directions which, well, piss a lot of Star Wars lore enthusiasts. They're still fun films that did the lore better than the fucking prequels did, and I hope Rise of Skywalker will redeem this new trilogy in the end. Also, as mangled as the lore are, they're not as bad as how horrible Game of Thrones betrayed the fans with the fuck up that is the last season after years of loyalty to the series. Joe has a vid on the game impression. Well, he and I like the game preview. Looks like we just gotta see if the full game will be as good as it looks, or if EA will fuck it up. Wow, so here's something unexpected: after this conference, people get to see an extended session of this game + play the game for themselves. And their response is the same: they all love the game & apparently, the press conference gameplay was made easier because the real game is like Sekiro level difficulty. Maybe not THAT hard but it's certainly challenging. And that the game will be like Mass Effect 2 where you can explore different places & do main + sidequests, and that some areas require unlocking abilities to open them. Well, now I'm even more excited about this game! It'll certainly be 10 + hours long & make me able to do saber duels like Sekiro. I am expecting Darth Maul / previous Jedis to fight as bonus bosses since Cal has a flashback ability. I can totally see him having a flashback to fight those guys to unlock mind reading, or some other cool abilities like that. Can't wait!
