  1. https://www.pcgamer.com/modern-warfare-system-requirements/ I thought Bethesda was pretty bad with their games requiring 50GB+ storage, but THIS??? This is too far. This ain’t Red Dead Redemption 2!! What were you thinking you storage taking bastards???
  2. 107) Shadow Complex Remastered Platform: PC I'm surprised I haven't finished this remaster of this formerly personal favorite 360 game of mine. I was already 90% finished months ago, but I didn't finish it. Well now it's time! Still fun & better with 60 fps, though it has definitely shown its age with the graphics & not as smooth navigation. Shame there's no sequel yet because Epic's too busy with Infinity Blade + Gears + Fornite + whatever war they're waging against Steam, but I guess it's for the best this way. May not be as good as Symphony of the Night, Hollow Knight, Ori or Bloodstained, buut I still enjoy punching the shit out of enemies and making them fall to their death. 108) Code Vein Platform: PC It's that Anime Dark Souls everyone was talking about. Surprisingly made by the people behind God Eater, and overall it's pretty good. It's like if Dark Souls saw vampire related stuff, make it so that friendship is the most important thing for you to have & make it anime as hell with the characters acting like they're in a Tales of game. What's weird is that your main character in the game is definitely capable of speaking because you get to use emotes with the character saying stuff, but in cutscenes your character just nods & never say a thing. But then your character actually says 2 words near the final boss & the very2 end so why this odd design choice?? I know God Eater does the same thing too with the main characters but COME ON, just let them talk when they obviously can! This game encourages having a second party member to assist you in battle because this game has quite a few companions to bring with you. Aside from explorations & just dying over and over again, the game's way of achieving 100% completion to get the best ending is to you to explore and get what the game call "Vestiges", aka memory shards of each of your companions + npcs + even big bosses. If you collect all of them and beat each bosses, you'll get the best ending which is quite an awesome one I must say, not like Dark Souls and their open ended ending. In fact by the end of the game, if you collect all the Vestiges, you pretty much have the entire plot clear as day. It has a pretty cool twist, but I can't say what it is obvs. I must say though that a sequel is definitely coming so I can't wait! 109) Backbone: Prologue Platform: PC A taste to come for a detective game where the people are animal people. It's like Zootopia, but even more fucked up. It plays like one of those "go here & tinker with stuff till you proceed" adventure games, but much simpler. All you do is talk to people, proceed to the next part & play a couple of sneaking sections with puzzles to solve here and there. It ends quite interestingly, and I want to know what happens next. Gotta wait till the next chapter when the full game is out in 2020! 110) Indivisible Platform: PC The game from the same dev as Skullgirls. And man, what a game it is. It's pretty much what happens if one the Metroidvania games marry Valkyrie Profile. You explore like in a Metroidvania with stages that's locked unless you get the right ability, and the combat plays like Valkyrie Profile in that it's a turn based action rpg combat as long as your character has the attack bar filled up. You can level it up after collecting red crystals & upgrade it from an upgrade monk that you put into your head........ because your main character can store people inside her head. It makes perfect sense when you play the game. There's SO many party members to recruit in this game, both main & optional, and they all play their own way, all with their own sidequests for you to complete, though you can't complete their sidequest unless you gain the right ability to proceed to a previously inaccessible path. This is part Metroidvania after all. The thing that's annoying about this game is the lack of fast travel which makes backtracking quite a pain to do, at least until you almost reach the endgame which unlocks the best moving ability that makes this a breeze. There's so many platforming challenges in this game & a lot of them can be less annoying if you just have a good fast travel spot next to it. Also even though there's markers which let you see a sidequest that can be completed, some sidequests have no marker at all which will confuse the hell out of you when it's in a map that's pretty damn big with a lot of platforming challenges, so my advice is to just go do the story of the game until you get the ability to do propel yourself upwards + being able to dash everywhere you go. Then after you're 90% finished with the collectibles with just a single sidequest for one companion left involving a King of Thieves in a desert, do the story mission until you get the ability to fly. That way you won't have to run like a maniac in that damn desert just to complete that one sidequest. Surprisingly even though there's so many characters to recruit, there's actually a lot more that was supposed to be in the game according to the info from Indiegogo. A couple of original characters who I thought will be in the game aren't here, and there were supposed to be guest characters from other series like Shovel Knight, Shantae, Red from Transistor & even the Drifter from Hyper Light Drifter. DLCs incoming, and I am interested to see these guys in action! PS. I like how this game's setting is basically a mishmash of stuff from southeast Asia, plus point from me for the main character because she is voiced by an Indonesian so she has that accent which I have too. GO INDO!
  3. 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!
  4. Seeing how the people of Gotham are pretty much complete assholes to Joker, they pretty much got what's coming to them. Except the girlfriend & his mom. I hope the girlfriend isn't gonna be one of those characters that turns out to be a bitch in the end, hopefully she's gonna be understandably upset but will still be a good person cause we have seen enough assholes in this film already. This is gonna be one messed up story that we're gonna see, prepare yourselves for the chaos.
  5. 106) I love you Colonel Sanders. This game exists............ Platform: PC It's that KFC dating sim game. Now going into this I thought it would be a fun dating sim with silly stuff & you can date all the quirky characters in the game, but NOPE! There are choices you can make, but you pretty much have to pick the right options because the goal is to make Sanders like you. You can't date anyone other than the colonel himself, which is really freaking dumb since he's so overly anime, while at the same time there's real-life photographs put in when you enter his home. So this is the regular old real life Sanders who become anime for reasons........ Ok it's obvious that it's like that but srlsy??? You expect us to date an old married man as if he's a high school hunk??? I want to date the girls here who had better personalities, but you're not even given the option to. WHAT'S THE POINT OF A DATING SIM IF YOU CAN'T EVEN DATE MORE THAN ONE PERSON??? And this game's purpose is to, well you guessed it, promote the hell out of KFC. The setting of this game is a culinary school, but it's heavily biased towards KFC menus. There are students that cooked something else like these 2 rival of yours who cook formal French cuisine with the small plate & pretty decorations, but one of them put poison in their food & the other one just want to let their food be seen instead of eaten. This game is mocking those foods while blatantly telling us "BUY KFC, IT'S THE BEST FOOD!". Shameless I tell ya, SHAMELESS! The saddest thing is the KFC foods look quite good, and here in Australia the KFC looks so different. I didn't know there's macaroni and cheese KFC! I want to buy KFC now.......
  6. Speaks for itself. There is no way in hell that this breakup will last long considering how Spiderman is pretty much set in stone for future MCU films. Let's see how things with Venom proceed from now on, I would love to see a cameo from Tom Holland in Venom 2.
  7. 101) Greedfall Platform: PC While everyone was playing Gears 5, I decided to play Blasphemous & this other game that was strangely popular & was proclaimed the next true Bioware game called Greedfall. I on the other hand already know that this game's from the same dev as Bound by Flame, Mars War Logs & Technomancer, 3 games that I quite enjoyed because of their fun combat even though the team based mechanic was rough around the edges. Greedfall is, well, their best game so far. Unlike those 3 games which has a limited map to travel around, this game decides to go MUCH bigger, which I see is kind of like Witcher 2/ Dragons Dogma type of big with great sceneries and cities to walk into. It's unfortunate that even though the cities are big and there's 3 of them, apparently these cities hired the same architect and place similar layouts to all of the buildings with only carpets, wallpapers and furniture to differentiate them. The bars & guardposts all have similar architects too which just takes me out of the immersion, which is a shame because Spider usually have different interiors for their areas in their other games. Combatwise I think this game still has the good combat the previous games had, though unfortunately it's somehow slower this time because your attack has a 1 second delay after you make a hit, and the combat spells you use this time are just these black vortex spells that slows enemies down instead of flames & electricity, plus attacks with rings you equip. You do get the ability to speed up your attack speed, but the effect for that is too short & it's much better to use other abilities instead. I prefer the combat from Bound By Flame since that one has more variations, but this is still pretty good. They do make up for the combat by having much more complex quests to follow through. I like how every quests in this game always have twists and turns so you never know who to root for until the end when everything is laid bare. Companion quests are also complex like usual with this dev, my favorite being the quest with your friend Kurt which have you infiltrating his troops for scandals. The main quest is also quite good with lots of turns along the way. Good job devs for improving bit by bit with each games you made! Can't wait to see their next game! 102) A Plague Tale: Innocence Platform: PC The sleeper hit I heard much about that came out the same day as Rage 2. I was waiting for this game to drop its price & finally it did recently. This game is pretty much Last of Us + Tomb Raider: medieval edition, with a main character that dies in only 1 hit throughout the entire game, rats instead of the fungus virus & a lot fewer abilities to defend yourself. Initially it's a very stealth heavy game with minimal combat, but as you gain more abilities + companions with their special skills, you slowly turn into Lara Croft, if she has a little brother + friends to accompany her. By the end of the game, shit turns from pretty good to "OMG THIS IS AWESOME", and you'll be leaving the game really satisfied with what just happened & can't wait for the sequel which will most definitely happen. We are in the "Innocence" part of this tale after all. The one thing that bothers me about this game are the character models. Damn these guys look really stiff AF, though I can't really blame it too much considering the game this dev made were Disney games & a zoo tycoon game in 2018. Now that this game is a big success, I hope for the sequel they can make the character models more emotive & even more awesome, because this game is already awesome enough and it's only part 1 of the journey. 103) Perfect Slices Platform: iPhone A pretty fun game where you chop a line of vegetables by holding the touch screen & stopping when you're about to hit a wood/ metal spikes. You get more vegetables to cut when you level up & new knifes, but it's all just cosmetics. Playing this game made me want to chop vegetables & make vegetable soup. Yum..... 104) Hordes of Enemies Platform: iPhone Another One Finger Death Punch clone. This time you can pick between 3 settings: a samurai last stand, zombie apocalypse, or the Burly Brawl from Matrix Reloaded. It's all just a survival run & you get special attacks to use if you're feeling too surounded. It's fun. 105) AI: The Somnium Files Top 10 2019 game for sure. Best part is this game has a lot of dream sequences & there's little hidden secrets in them, so replaying these sections to get every little easter egg is very much encouraged. Just as awesome as the Zero Escape series & I can wait to see what the dev comes up with next time!
  8. I just heard of this game last month from one of my regular mates while I was at my local FGC hangout, and I am so excited to finally play this game. The next game from the creator of the mindbender that is the Zero Escape series. Surprisingly a lot funnier than I thought! The plot of this game starts simple enough. There's a murder that just happened involving a woman tied to a horse ride in an abandoned amusement park, who is also missing her left eye. You play as a detective named Kaname Date, a guy who lost his left eye & memories 6 years before the game begins, and ever since then he had been working at a special police unit called the Advanced Brain Investigation Squad (ABIS). Why that name? Well that's because his unit solves crime by entering the minds of suspects with a dream machine called Psync. It's like Inception, but more trippy. Of course this being the game made by the creator of Zero Escape, nothing is as simple as it looks. And so begins another mind bending adventure filled with twists, great characters, lots of eyeballs getting taken out, and surprisingly a lot more humor than I expected. AND IT IS GLORIOUS! Now let me get one thing out of the way. This game is set in an entirely different universe than the Zero Escape games. For now. There are cheeky dialogues and things that reference Zero Escape though, so time will tell if this game is indeed in the same universe as that or not in the sequel, if there is any. Of course, this game would not be a Zero Escape esque game if you don't have a quirky main character. Junpei from 999 likes to make bad puns, Sigma from Virtue's Last Reward is a giant perv, and Date here is........ damn. He makes bad puns AND is a gigantic perv. Hitting on pretty girls, making inuendos at everyday objects, having adult vi ahem I mean "animal husbandry" videos (raising livestock vids, HAHAHAHA yeah right XD), actually have the ability to activate super-speed when he thinks of a porn mag, but he's not a lolicon. Which doesn't make him THAT bad. He is still a good detective though, and he has a pretty cool gun named Evolver which uses different bullet types depending on the situation. Since he lost his left eyeball, it's replaced by something FAR better: a prosthetic left eye robot partner named Aiba, which can do so many stuff. When she ejects herself out of Date's eye, she looks like a one eyed bear/hamster thingy that can somehow walk around and interact with other stuff. Other than that, she's basically a sentient Siri, with a lot more cool features. Make calls? X Ray visions? Watch youtube videos? Search criminal database? Analyzing the surroundings to think of actions that can help you get out of a tight firefight like Sherlock Holmes? Transform into a holographic cute girl that makes banters with you, makes references to popular movies, likes bugs hiding in plants & find an overpowered pick in Minecra I mean ShovelForge? You bet your ass she can do all of that stuff. Other than these 2, this game is filled with a lot more great characters, and every single one of them has their own backstories for you to discover. My favorite is a tie between the cute pink haired idol Iris & Mizuki, who's pretty much like Date's little sister after her good for nothing parents decides to have Date become her guardian since they're too busy with their work. These 2's routes make me tear up because they have the sweetest interactions with Date, and that's awesome. Even the side npcs have their own interesting background once you unlock their character bios. Like this inspector who you see in every crime scene, and the game likes to poke fun of him by giving you the option to ask his name over and over and over again. Poor guy. XD Gameplay in this game is split into 3 parts: investigation, dream exploration & shootout QTE sections. The investigation part is like one of the Zero Escape games where you point at an object or person and interact with them. I love how you can point at an object/person & Date + Aiba + whoever is with you almost always have something funny to say about them. In a couple of these, Aiba will get out of Date's eye & you can see Date's own face. Funny thing is you can bob your head all over the place & just talk to yourself, and Date loves doing these a lot. XD Dream exploration is where a lot of the usual puzzle-solving is done. You enter the minds of suspects/ witnesses and you have to solve puzzles by tinkering with objects inside the dream. Nothing makes sense so most of the time the solution to the puzzles are outright WTF, like one puzzle where in order to get rid of an obstacle, you have to go to a control panel and input a "fighting game move command" to it. You can only be inside a dream for 6 minutes which the game keeps tracks of, and each action cost time, but also give you a time modifier which helps reduce the time you spent on an action, unless you do something which has a red skull time multiplier in which case you need to get rid by doing actions that doesn't take that much time. Standing still pauses the timer so it's best to think of what you want to do before moving. Some of these sections have branching paths depending on what you did in the dream, and it's necessary to do all the paths to see everything the game offers, and of course to see the answers to the big mysteries surrounding this game. The shootout QTE sections are where this game just go off the walls cartoony, which I did not expect. These sections are the part I mentioned where you're in a combat situation & Aiba will think of a way to get out of it. Half are QTEs where you press the right buttons, while the others are where you have to aim your cursor to a spot & shoot your gun. Now it's a shame that this section isn't played like a rail shooter because that'll be awesome, but it's still pretty fun & it's funny how in these sections, a porn magazine is always involved. You'll know what I mean when you play these parts. Just like Zero Escape, the game encourages you to play through every path available. Some parts may be locked because you haven't played the other parts which usually ends on a big cliffhanger, but don't worry. Everything has a reason & by the end of it, every mystery will be answered in a way only these devs know how. Only one mystery remains after the end, but that is already answered only for people who had played the Zero Escape games before. The game also ends surprisingly on the happiest note compared to those other games, and that's awesome! I can't stop smiling after I finally reach the end of the game. Now all I need to do is go back to these dream sequences and do every dumb thing I can find because there's so many of them! I can only find 1 thing that I feel is kinda annoying about the game: multiple save files don't collectively save your progress. For example: I saved my game at a moment where there's a branching choice which branches out to another route. After picking route a and made good progress on that route, I load my save file to pick route b and finish that route. But unfortunately that save file didn't save my route a progress, so after I found that out, I had to do route a all over again! It's a good thing I noticed this before I completed that route because I would've been boned! So the lesson here: don't use multiple saves like thinking this game is a normal visual novel. Just have 1 save file. If you want to do a different route, use the game's time flowchart. There ya go, another game from the Zero Escape dev, and it's just as awesome, with more humor to accompany the mystery. Definitely one of my top 10 games of 2019. I give this game the rating of "so awesome I will play this game again to get 100% completion, and to see Aiba doing more silly stuff in the dream world" with a badass seal of approval. Actually you know what? This might be my GOTY of 2019. Days after finishing this game and I actually youtube other people playing this game to see if they can figure out the plot of this game, and it's like the 10th time I do it. I can't get this game out of my head, and that's AWESOME!! What's next after this? Will there be a sequel to continue the plot after pretty much everything is resolved? Well, we shall see. Nevertheless, I can't wait to see more of what these guys do next!
  9. Graphically it's good, but gameplaywise? It's another Jump Force/ J-Stars Victory you know games similar to those. I like how Saitama can't be the first or second in this team based game because he'll be so OP it's unfair, how since he's always late in the manga he's also late to arrive here, and the only one who can beat him is, well, himself. When he's in the next J-Stars game, I would love to see him just steamrolling everyone else, except when he's fighting Funny Valentine who can D4C him to death or something. Oh God, this game has a high likelihood of sucking..... but at least it's not as bad as season 2 of the anime. XD
  10. KFC actually publish this......... THEY ACTUALLY APPROVE OF THIS.................. THE MAD MEN! You know what, since it's KFC and I'm positive this game will have so many KFC dishes, maybe I'll play this game just to see what kind of food there are. Because those chickens look GOOD!
  11. 96) Control Platform: PC Can't wait for an Alan Wake + Control crossover game! 97) Celeste Platform: PC Got this one from the Epic Games Store free game week, and damn what a game they picked! The legendary game that I heard so much about. This is pretty much what happens when Super Meat Boy have the same real-life storytelling like Night in the Woods or Oxenfree. And what you get is a frustrating game which will make you die over 100+ times in just one out of many levels because you want to collect those strawberries AH DAMN YOU HARD TO REACH FRUIT COME BACK HERE, but will also make you forget about that frustration once you get to the next story sections. Sure this game really pissed me off a lot since many of its stages can be very precise in how it wants you to do your platforming, but the characters here are so colorful and relatable that I just want to continue playing till the end to see what happens, and chapter 6 + 7 are the definite highlight of this game with really sweet and epic moment, with the annoying platforming sections that can take many2 tries but by this point you're used to the punishment already so it doesn't matter much. Fun fact: Theo's in game instagram account actually exists & you can check the pics out to see what happens with him & Madeline after the game. It's so cute I can die from cuteness overload! https://www.instagram.com/theounderstars/ Side note, what a waste to collect 100+ strawberries and have them be put into 1 pie. You only need 20 for a pie, bring the rest home! XD 98) Monstrum Platform: PC I once saw Markiplier played this game back when this was an early access game. Poor guy had to deal with this shit. This is a roguelike horror exploration game with the goal of escaping from 1 out of 3 monsters that will kill you when they get close to you: scary. This is a pretty cool game. You basically have 3 ways to escape and the game takes place in a ship, but you start off completely randomly in random parts of the ship. You have to search every single room you're in to get the items needed to escape, but since you have limited inventory and there's a monster that's stalking you with their creepy ass footsteps, it becomes a tense situation. Until you die many times that by that point you're like "ok monster, go f yourself. I'm gonna get out of here even if it kills me!" You do have items that can distract/ stun the monsters, especially the fire extinguisher which is your best friend, and a duct tape which is so damn helpful to disable security cameras that can attract the monsters to your location. When I played this game a second time, I actually got all the items I need to escape through a helicopter, but I didn't know that the last item which is a refueling station was locked in a container right next to the helicopter, so I wandered around until I got killed & it took me 6 more tries to FINALLY GTFO. It feels SO DAMN GOOD in the end. It's unfortunate that this flare gun is the closest thing you get to a gun. I want to blow these monster's heads off after how much I had to run away from them! 99) GNOG Platform: PC Another Epic Games Store free game. This game........ this game is........ SO CUTE!!! I LOVE games like this that just oozes charm. Basically it's a puzzle game where you just tinker with stuff & solve puzzles with the clues the game give you in the background. There's 9 cute stages & after you beat a stage, the game goes into a catchy jingle that are always fun to listen to. This game makes me happy inside. 100) Blasphemous Platform: PC I was waiting for this game a LONG time when this game was at Kickstarter because of the gorgeous artstyles, and now I finally got to play it. Made by the people who made the Last Door, a point and click mindfuck puzzle game. This game makes more sense & quite straightforward. It takes place in a world where it's ruled by a religion that looks like it's a Christian influence but completely messed up. When someone committed a sin, they become monsters, and these acts are called "The Grievous Miracle". You play as a guy with a pointy mask named the "Penitent One" and your goal is to stop all of this from happening and save the world. By killing bosses & reaching the top of a cathedral to reach a throne room so you can heal the world. Yeah it's quite complicated, but it makes more sense than the Last Door ever was. Gameplay wise though, it's a Metroidvania game with a bit of Dark Souls influence in how you heal & die, though the penalty of death is just you losing your max MP meter. You can die multiple times & you can gain the max MP back just by going to the places where you got killed, even if you die 3 times in a row, so there's no scary stuff like "die again and you'll lose all of your XP permanently and have to do it all over again" thing. The combat is pretty good since you can do combos & upgrade your move lists as the game progresses by going to these rooms with this giant women statues thing. There's 7 of these things in the game, and the more you discover rooms with these, the more powerful your attacks become. And it feels so great to go full power and decimate those enemies that took 7 hits before, only to have them die in 2 hits. There's also quite a few sidequests similar to Dark Souls with npcs roaming around the map. Helping them will reward you with items that you can equip & give you various benefits, which includes the good old Metroidvania progression of "get item b to have the ability to reach this platform/room you can't enter before kind of thing". Surprisingly this game doesn't have a double jump ability, so instead the ability you unlock to reach a platform is more in the lines of "get this item which creates a platform that helps you traverse". And this game lets you climb ledges so those platforms are all you need pretty much. That's like the number 1 thing you have to unlock in these Metroidvania games & this game doesn't have it. Then again, when you made the Last Door I guess you can break a rule here and there. There's 2 endings to this game. One is the typical "get to the end" end, while the other one is the "do stuff which will unlock the true ending" end. You can pretty much do the normal ending first, and then load the save to do the true ending. The one thing that drags this game down besides a couple of glitches where I got stuck inside a wall or an enemy boss just flying out of the background is that there's not enough fast travel areas. There's only 5 in total & most of the time to get to the next area you need, you have to get out of a fast travel spot & walk all the way to that next area which takes like 3 - 5 minutes each. That's if you manage to dodge some instant death spike traps that you have to deal with in a couple of the areas. In the end this game takes me 13 hours to complete, but 2 of those hours are spent backtracking to spots that usually just takes 2 minutes to get if the fast travel point isn't that far. It's a pretty cool Metroidvania game in the end with a lot of really cool enemy designs & boss fights. Just be ready to have annoyances here and there to hinder your way a bit.
  12. The return of Remedy, and another great game has been released. The plot of this game is pretty simple: You're playing as Jesse Faden. Through a cool backstory that you should find out about yourself, she ended up trying to enter a building named the Federal Bureau of Control, a place where the US Government apparently store a lot of paranormal objects & study them. She entered as the janitor because she wants to find her missing younger brother. Then for some reason, the director of the building committed suicide, and then Jesse immediately becomes the new director. That's the first few minutes of this game, yes this game is fucking weird, and this is pretty much a game made by the Remedy that made Alan Wake. Max Payne & Quantum Break realism has no place in this game, we are going ham on mindfuck yo! When you play this game for the first time and see the basic overview of the lore, a couple of you might be thinking to yourself "wait a minute, this whole thing is like the SCP Foundation". And you would be correct. The entire lore and world of this game is absolutely like the SCP Foundation because there's a bunch of monsters that this game dub the "Hiss", weird supernatural creatures, and of course everyday objects that has superpowers which can break reality. Just like that one time when Caddicarus made his own SCP fanfic after he got wasted drunk on "adult juice box". Unfortunately this game doesn't have a music box that can play Livin on a Prayer in CD Quality. Most of the fun of this game is spent exploring this building you're in which has a lot of sections & documents for you to collect, just like Remedy's previous games before which give you more information about the lore of the game. There's a couple of collectibles in this game that are SO DAMN AWESOME because it pretty much confirms that this game takes place in the same universe as Alan Wake. Not like Quantum Break where Alan Wake exist in that universe exist but he's a celebrity that's very much alive with his own TV series and the games actually exists, but takes place after the event of Alan Wake in canon. Remedy shared universe confirmed boyz, we're gonna have ourselves an Avengers esque team up in the future! All of the video collectibles you find are played in live action, a Remedy staple, and there's even these creepy-ass puppet shows called the Thresehold Kids. ................................ Uhuhuhuuu this creeps me out Fun fact: this show was supposed to be an educational show for the kids in the building to follow the rules of the FBC, but well, they succeed in creeping them out instead............ on the plus side, it's pretty charming in its own way though! The cool part is that this building is very much a living place that can shapeshift itself, and you're going to see some really cool looking weird locations. It's awesome that even though the whole game is pretty much like a Metroidvania, or like Prey where you're exploring an entire building with many sections, every part of this place always have you seeing something new and exciting until you have pretty much seen everything. Surprisingly this building operates like a normal office, so you pretty much will see npcs that has already dealt with a lot of weird shit from dealing with supernatural things often that everything becomes normal to them. I love that, makes them actually feel like real people. The combat of this game is really damn fun. The enemies you fight are mostly possessed soldiers, with a couple of weird-looking enemies here and there. Fighting them requires using a lot of cool abilities. Think Quantum Break, but remove most of the time control ability except the super dash, have telekinesis + force push + Mind control that Jedis have, a shield creation which protects you from super damaging attacks, and the ability to fly. Not like Superman fly but like Magneto from MVC kind of flying where he can float in the air. All of these abilities are acquired by doing side quests which involve you going to one of the SCP objects and harnessing their powers for your own. By the end of the game you'll be like a Jedi Magneto, with a badass gun on your hand. Oh yeah, speaking of a gun, that's another cool thing this game has. You have what the game dub a "Service Weapon". It has unlimited ammo which does need to be recharged, and it can change shapes into different forms. You'll start with a default pistol mode, and then later on with the upgrades you can turn it into an SMG, shotgun, sniper rifle and a grenade launcher. That's it though, which is such a shame because according to the lore, this thing was once Mjolnir and Excalibur. Why can't I have those cool ass things?? The game also have a bit of a light RPG mechanic thrown in. You can level up Jesse to increase the usual stuff like more damage, health, upgrade your abilities, and also equip different perks for yourself and attachments for your weapons. The more you upgrade your weapons, the more attachments you can input into it. Both perks and attachments can be received from enemies & boxes you open in the open world. The further you get, the better the rarity of them. Though this also means that because the loots you get are random, you get to have these repeat side missions that pops up once in a while. They tell you stuff like "go to the research centre and kill this enemy" or something similar to that so that when you complete it, you'll get more stuff, but you can pretty much just ignore these things unless you really want a weapon upgraded and you can only get the upgrade part from completing one of this mission. The weird thing about this game is that the side quests are pretty much the best parts about the game because they all involve you having to deal with reality-warping SCPs I mean "Objects of Powers" and do cool boss fights in a couple of them. One of them have you enter a mirror and fight your doppelganger, and once you complete it you'll get a cool ass costume to use which I pretty much use for the rest of the game. The main quest is pretty straightforward with just generic + elite enemies & once you complete it, the game pretty much tells you "it isn't over yet. You still have a lot more stuff to do in this place so go explore" which I can tell is an intentional decision by the game dev. And the game definitely sets up either a sequel, or an upcoming story DLC because one of the end game information straight up tells you "we hope to see you soon for the Expansion". Cheeky devs. Now I know that people don't like how the end of the game turns out since there's no traditional boss to fight, but I've played Alan Wake before and that game doesn't have a final boss as well. This game does give a pretty damn epic final section with a plot justification to why there's no final boss, so I'm ok with how it turns out. It's such a damn shame that there's no 100% completion extra scene though. Days Gone has it and it was freaking awesome, and I was so damn sure that this game would have it as well, but nope! You just complete everything and that's it for now until an upcoming DLC I think! Although the main story is pretty straightforward, there is one mission towards the end of the game that is just so fucking awesome. There's this maze that was previously endless, and you're given a music player that you have to use to traverse through this maze. So while you're traveling inside this maze, this epic as hell and appropriate music plays while you plow through every enemy you see. This is pretty much the best music in the entire game. So good in fact that it's one of my favorite song from a game in 2019. The one thing about this game that I don't like is the awkard as hell moments during dialogues. Why is it that the main character has to open her lower jaw when she's just standing still sometimes? And there's so many times she does inner monologues that it just breaks the flow of the conversation and makes things so damn cringey and awkward. And 90% of the dialogues in the game are like this because the game decided to approach dialogues like Fallout 4, minus the natural body language and game affecting choices. Also, the background combat music. Other than that awesome maze song, the rest of the songs are just these drums playing in the background with ambient noises. Even the final stage has the same ambient song playing instead of a cool song. Why?? Luckily for me I play my own custom music in the background to fill the void. I recommend this song during the final stage. Because this song is EPIC SHIET. This is a great return to form for Remedy that's for damn sure. It sets up a great potential for a sequel & I can't wait to see what's next. I give this game my rating of "so awesome you can't wait for the sequel, and potentially a crossover with Alan Wake + Quantum Break to officialize the Remedy game universe!" with a badass seal of approval! Phew, been a while since a great game like Sekiro was out, and Control thankfully has filled that void. Onto the next few days where Gears 5, Greedfall and Blasphemous will come out, ON THE SAME DAY. We'll see how that goes!
  13. 94) Beatshot Platform: PC When I went to an Esports event called Melbourne Esports Open last week, there was a section in the venue where I can play a bunch of games, both old games and upcoming ones like Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Gears 5 and a Yooka Laylee sequel which is now a 2D Mario esque game. One of the old games there was this game that was on an Alienware laptop showcase, and it's an eye tracking game. Basically you play by staring into circles & the camera will track your eye movement. Pretty cool game concept. 95) The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan Platform: PC I can safely say this about this game: It's better than Erica. This is very much an Until Dawn sequel, well part sequel since it's part 1 out of others that will come later. Just like Until Dawn, it's very flexible in how the story progresses depending on how many characters survive the game. Since it's multi-platform now, they change the part where if you play on PS4 there's a couple of parts where you have to put your controller down, and turn it into a "follow the heartbeat rhythm" minigame where you just press X or S in tune with the heartbeat prompt. It's still fun doing the QTE sequences while also scavenging for lore items here and there, as well as seeing the different scenes that can play out if you choose different dialogues, even though the movement for some reason is still stiff as concrete like Until Dawn. It makes me happy to see that Detroit Become Human and the next David Cage games actually controls MUCH better, but I want the game from this dev to be that good too! Of course just like Until Dawn and Hidden Agenda, this game has a lot of awkward jump cuts where you see characters' faces on close up, and then all of a sudden it jumps to them doing a different pose while having their face completely go neutral, especially in dialogue scenes. By this point I think the dev are just doing this intentionally for laughs. Except at one point in the intro of the game, Julia's hair turn to brown even though she's blonde, like WTF, that's just simply a glitch. The best part about this game though is the special features video because one of them is a historical recap of where these "horror anthology" concept begins and evolve over the years. Cool to see these anthology films that I haven't watched yet & will after seeing them here. Can't wait for the next game in this Dark Pictures series Little Hope!
  14. YES!!! Didn't expect Morgan to show up again since I thought D4 was supposed to be the next Swery continuation, AND THAT'S AWESOME! It's only a matter of time before this game is released for other consoles after Switch, so I can't freaking wait! Hopefully the frame rate of the game will be stable this time and not drop to 15 fps like in the trailer..... but I don't mind it.
  15. Time to carry over this thread from the previous forum! I just had a thought, we all know catchy and memorable video game musics over the years, like the Guile theme, the MGS theme, Final Fantasy Sephiroth's theme, you know, the classics that most gamers seems to know. But what about the obscure ones that's so awesome that it must be heard but unfortunately aren't because they're not that well known? That's why this thread is for those songs, to spread the awesomeness to the world that's been surrounded by terrible Boy Bands, Justin Bieber and Glee songs. And of course to see how many of you like a game for it's soundtrack as well as it's gameplay, as well as show you guys these obscure games as well. Just to remind you, this is for not so popular game only, so Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Tekken, Guilty Gear and Mass Effect are all out. I'll start. Got a whole lot to uncover here. If you can, name the game and just post the song link bellow the game's name. Chain Dive http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axiIfslE6Z8 The second version of this song, which is more complete If you want to download these songs without needing to buy them through itunes, you can do it by copying the links of the song, and go to this website. http://www.youtube-mp3.org After that, just paste the link, download the song and its all yours. Have fun!
  16. Well, if your name isn't Jack Nicholson, Jared Letho or Cesar Romero, looks like it! From what I hear from the reviews, Joaquin really went all the fuck out with his method acting & just become a very sympathetic Joker who turns the way he will be because Gotham is filled with complete pricks that deserves what's coming to them. It's probably gonna be really messed up, but I can't wait to see how the film shows the rise of this version of Joker.
  17. ARRRRGHHH, WHY IS THIS TRAILER SO GOOD??? Stop toying with my feelings EA!! For some reason, I thought the Avengers theme will show up. Probably because of how epic this trailer is. XD But I will reserve my judgment for this game when the game is out & when I find out how the gameplay, open world side quests & length is. But considering that this game is made by Titanfall + Apex Legend's creator, the one shining beacon in EA's developer's pile, all signs points to it being at least good, and at most fucking awesome. Unless of course everything fucked up like Anthem. Oh please be awesome!
  18. So back in April, Sega released this little video about Yakuza 7, or Shin Ryu Ga Gotoku as it was named back then. I thought this will be a mode in the game you can play like that Majima Construction minigame in Kiwami 2, BUT NO. This is the actual gameplay of Yakuza 7. It even has screenshots to tell us that yes, this is real. Hmmmm, why does that guy with the guns look so much like Han Joon Gi? Maybe it's his brother or something. This is the equivalent of what AVGN said for Godzilla when the second NES game he played turned out to be a strategy game. Well........ this is gonna be interesting. This might be the first Ryu Ga Gotoku game where I don't buy the Japanese version when it's out, because there's no way in hell that I can brute force my way playing it like the other games I played before. I'm sure this game will turn out to be surprisingly good because Sega knows their stuff. Except Yakuza Dead Souls but no one talks about that game. For now, I'm gonna play Yakuza 0 on PC from a bundle I got, and I'm just gonna have to wait till Yakuza 7 gets released in English. Sega did say that if the combat change in 7 is poorly received by everyone, they'll revert back to the usual combat, so we shall see how this goes!
  19. 93) Erica Platform: PS4 This is that live action FMV game that got a sudden "out now" trailer in Gamescom. And you know what? It's actually a pretty decent game. Unfortunately there's a couple of issues that brought the game waaayy down. You follow the story of Erica, a poor girl who had to witness her father murdered when she was young, but she couldn't see the killer's face well before the killer escaped, so she's been traumatized since. Flash forward years later when she's a teenager, I think, and a box containing a hand and a medallion is put into her apartment's front door. The journey to uncover the truth then ensues, which involves you staying over a pretty nice looking hospital, but of course nothing in this place is what it seems. Now when I first started playing this game, it's actually pretty cool that the game isn't just one of those FMV games where all you do is pick choices. Here you also can do little things like touching your PS4 touch pad or iPhone controller app to turn a faucet, turn a key, take a document etc which makes it more interactive. Sure like any other games using the touch pad, these things are sometimes unresponsive, but it's still fun to do. It also has branching story paths which have different little cutscenes to tell you more about the in game characters & lore. The actress who plays Erica is pretty good with her scenes, and also a couple of the other side characters are well acted. It's not until I beat the game once that I realize that really, this game is FAR more linear than I thought. I thought this game will be like that game Hidden Agenda or Until Dawn where the smallest choice you made heavily affects the entire game, but NOPE, all the different choices for 2/3 of the game do is just give you new cutscenes to see. In the end the key events will stay the same. Only at the last part of the game will your choices matter which changes the ending you will get, and unfortunately there's only 4 endings total that you get. 2 of which are just variations on a choice that you made at the end, and 2 others which also are variations on a choice that you made before the end. I got the best ending the second time I beat this game. There's another thing that's annoying about the game. There's no chapter select, so once you get an ending, you go back to the beginning of the game. I guess that's because the dev wants to pad the hell out of this game which can take you just 1 hour 30 minutes to finish. Also, WTF is up with so many unexplained things this game have??? Why can Erica sometimes see hallucinations of girls in animal masks all of a sudden? Why does she suddenly have a bruise on her stomach after a dream which is never touched upon again in the next scenes? What's the point of the side girls character? And after seeing the true plot unfolding in the end, who the hell are those girls in those animal masks in Erica's vision? EXPLAIN STORY, EXPLAIN!! In short: Hidden Agenda is better than this game. Play that game instead. Or the upcoming The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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??
  25. I will of course update this once every press conference has been done. But for now, here's the press conference that nailed this year's E3: Since Sony's not in this year's E3, the competition of best conference is certainly much more interesting since anything can happen. And Microsoft actually did it: they didn't fuck up. You got your expected stuff like Xbox streaming which copies PS Now, Gears 5 & Halo, also Battletoads with an art style that's pretty interesting + that George R Martin FromSoft game which is depressingly a Lord of the Rings clone, like come on! Dark Souls has infinitely more original & interesting lore than that! The winning part of their conference are definitely Phantasy Star Online 2 & This Like....... you can't beat John Wick/ Neo being an important character in your game! Also Devolver Digital's conference. They just keep getting sillier every year & I love it! And of course, Square Enix actually did what they should have done: show off FF7 remake & the Avengers game. They pretty much won E3 because of it You know, this gameplay is like if FF 12 has FF 15's combat instead of point & wait to attack. I dig it! Not so much that the game will be episodic, but still it's pretty sick! Wait a minute.... are you telling me that the reason the Avengers didn't help Spiderman deal with the villains in that game is because they're on a parade celebrating themselves, and they fucked up so badly that they destroyed San Francisco and got everyone to turn against them for 5 years? Wow..... what shitty luck. That means Spiderman is more popular than the Avengers in this new Marvel universe. Looks like luck is on Peter's side this time! XD Side note: it's so damn weird seeing the different actors playing the Avengers. They're so far away from the films & the past games that it's actually jarring, well except for Hulk which is Hulk. But oh well, I can get used to it. The absolute shitfest this year is undeniably, most definitely and depressingly: The Bethesda press conference...................... OH GOD THAT IS SO DEPRESSING TO WATCH. There are actually stuff that I love, like DOOM Eternal, Wolfenstein, that cool looking Deathloop game + Ghostwire Tokyo. BUT OH MY GOD, WE DON'T FUCKING CARE ABOUT FALLOUT 76 + ELDER SCROLLS BLADE! And this....... Oh.... Oh God...... what have they done to you Comander Keen........ my soul is ripped in half with this...... ABOMINATION. Ok actually at least the animators did a pretty good job on making it look good but COME ON, WHAT HAVE YOU TURNED COMMANDER KEEN INTO?? HE'S BJ BLAZKOWICZ'S GRANDSON!! SHOW THE KID MORE RESPECT!!! Those 3 things destroyed the entire conference. EA HAS A BETTER CONFERENCE THAN THIS!! I mean sure, the only good thing about EA's press conference is that Star Wars game, but the other stuff they have are ok & definitely will have people who like Sims 4, Fifa or Battlefield 5 interested. They don't have a massacre of a legendary game series like they did last year with Command & Conquer on mobile! I need to play a happy game after witnessing that Bethesda shitshow....... I can't believe they stoop this damn low.............. Outside of those conferences, the game that really sticks with me is Watch Dogs Legion. It's all because you can play as a 70+ year old and shoot people, and you can create a gang of killer grandparents. That...... is one funny ass shit. I can totally see this being the bridge between Watch Dogs & Assassin's Creed. These are the sort of people that embodies the ideals of the assassins. Can't wait to see them working together & fight Juno in the future.
