  1. Oh look at that. Army Men! The PS1 nostalgia is coming back to me. All those times spent playing those Army Men games, blowing and using flamethrowers on those tan soldiers, MUAH, I LUV IT. This makes me want to get Rising Storm 2 Vietnam just to play this game! Then I remember Red Orchestra 2 and how hard that game is....... We need Army Men back again. Spyro & Crash are back, so why not this?? Bring Air Attack back! And Green Rogue! And World War! I want to shoot them Tans!
  2. Star Citizen and No Man's Whatever are the same game in its core mechanic. You can seamlessly explore planets and space, you buy even better ships and equipment to make explorations and combat much easier, you do space battles, you mine stuff with your ship laser, you trade with other shops with resources you have, do set missions you get from quest givers, and shoot stuff. The difference is Star Citizen has pre set planets and not proceduraly generated ones, with actualy fps mechanic, and that box fetch quest. At least until the game finally have an epic storyline to follow in the full version, but for now, both games are similar. It's like comparing a Cadbury Hazelnut chocolate with Cadbury Fruit and Nut. There's differences that makes them taste different, but they're still Cadbury chocolate. And btw, NMS's changes doesn't matter if in the end you still do the same shit over and over and over again, and the ending makes it all completely worthless. That's like saying shoveling shit in a pig farm is better if you use a premium shovel instead of a pitchfork. You're still shoveling poop! Just out of curiousity, when do you think Star Citizen will finally be released? Actually nevermind. We don't know when it'll be released. We just have to keep waiting. FOREVER
  3. Sure Star Citizen is ambitious, but at this point I hate waiting for my kickstarter game to be given to me to the point I don't even care about it anymore. Beyond Good and Evil 2 will probably be done before that game comes out! Besides, you call THIS worthy of reccomendation? A game where it's pretty much No Man's Piece of Crap, but better because you can buy armor and it has actual fps gameplay which thankfully is normal, aside from dumb ais while still doing the same thing over and over and over again? Sure the full game will definitely have story missions, but just looking at this bores the shit out of me, just like No Man's Poo Poo: ambitious for sure, but has repetitive gameplay that ruins the entire game. Cyberpunk 2077 on the other hand, is 10,000 times more engaging and ABSOLUTELY worthy of reccomendation in comparison, and that game only takes place on a cyberpunk city! Hopefully the full game will have more stuff to do and have epic space army battles. But here's the problem though, no matter how good Star Citizen will be in it's full version, other games that will come out at that time will be infinitely better. I mean look at Duke Nukem Forever. Long development, and the final game is an outdated dinosaur compared to everything else. Who knows, when Star Citizen comes out, Warframe will probably dwarf it after they release a new ground breaking update to their game. They have Railjack which is fucking awesome, and imagine what it'll be like when there's a new update that lets you seamlessly travel from a planet to space to another planet like what Star Citizen did, but faster and more exciting. Ohoho sure No Man's I Don't Care Anymore is much better NOW, but when it was released? It scarred me for life so hard that I don't want to go back to it anymore. They should have released the game in the improved state since the beginning. But maybe I'll get back to the game eventually. Oh wait It's still the exact same thing as before, with third person camera and base building........... I already have PTSD looking at this game........ Ahem anyway, looking at these games shows that the future of open world games is definitely planetary explorations. Beyond Good and Evil 2 already starts following this trend, imagine what other established open world games will do to it too. Like GTA VI, only it'll be funny as hell with the dirty jokes and witty dialogues! Or maybe Rocksteady's Superman with him flying to different planets and fighting Braniac!! :0 Personally I prefer a tight open world with many fun varied stuff to do like Witcher 3, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077 rather than a giant galaxy exploration with less things to do. But one day, in the wise word of that kid in the Old El Paso commercial,
  4. 123) SINNER: Sacrifice for Redemption Platform: PC I played this game WAYYY back when it was just a demo in PAX 2017. It's what happens when you make a game with only Dark Souls bosses, and each time you fight a boss, a penalty is incurred to you. Got this game on the Discord game store for half the price, and it's a fun game, which unfortunately is quite short. The plot of the game is you're trying to absolve the sins of 7 people, represented by the 7 deadly sins. Sloth, Greed, you know the rest. You can actually pick the order of which bosses you want to fight, and each one incurs a permanent debuff to you. So in one boss, your health and stamina will be permanently decrease, and in the other your defence will decrease. It'll keep piling up until you fought all 7 bosses, and then you finally fight the final boss. Fortunately you gain more maximum health after you beat a boss. And boy, this is a Dark Souls clone alright! From the way you attack, use item and even move around and parry stab. There are more animations to make the game more fluid and fast, but it's still pretty much Dark Souls. The final boss itself is even a tounge and cheek callback to the final boss of Dark Souls 3, right down to having thunder attacks and swapping from sword and shield to a flaming giant sword! And it is a fun boss fight! Too bad the music is so dull. But fortunately for me, I mute the damn thing and then play this instead And it is absolutely perfect. The boss phase even matches up with the music change! 124) Kung Fu Z Platform: iPhone A beat em up kung fu game where you fight a bunch of zombies with your kung fu, like that priest from Brain Dead This is one of those games with those annoying "leave the game for 6 hours until you get enough gold coin to level your character up" mechanic. It's fun for the first few stages and you get new moves to use, but then it gets old when you have to do it for the 10th + time. But at least the music's funky 125) Colorcube Platform: iPhone It's an optical illusion game where you have an image that you have to recreate using different blocks. You have to switch up the color until you match the image presented to you. Which gets REALLY hard the further you play. It starts from this ALL the way to this My head hurts playing this game, and this is supposed to be a brain teaser! 126) Jump&Destroy Platform: iPhone It's one of those "get to the end of the level" tank shooting game. It starts off simple, and then it gets unforgiving when the more crazy enemy types show up. Fun part is the new power ups you unlock after travelling far through the game, which ranges from laser, to a double jump, a mushroom to make your tank bigger, and a ground and pound attack that destroys enemies bellow. Playing this game makes me want to play Metal Slug. 127) Number Go! Platform: iPhone A fun puzzle game where you have to make a line from the first number to the last, but you have to fill the entire square blocks with lines, or else you don't pass. Like this one bellow which is wrong. It's quite a fun game, and it makes you think about the possible line combinations that the game wants you to do. 128) Fighting Vipers Platform: PS4 At LAST. Judge's Eyes is finally out, and I can finally play this game!! Continuing on with the tradition of adding classic Sega games in into the club Sega in the Yakuza series, this time they add Fighting Viper, one of the very first fighting game I played in the arcade when I was little. I only remembered being able to punch a guy so hard that they flew out of the arena, and then I stopped playing once I get to level 7 against the guy with the guitar. And also true to tradition with Virtua Fighter 2 before, they made this game WAAYY too fucking hard. I got stuck fighting many of the fighters over and over again because the control is so stiff and the AI is just reading my inputs. Each time I try to attack, they always counter back over and over again. Eventually I beat all of them through determination and exploiting their openings after they're left vulnerable, except stage 8 and 9 where the bosses are..... they're just way too fucking cheap. Not only are they always countering my attack, they keep on coming close to me and instantly throw me, making me lose a lot of health over and over and over again. Then I found out that I can just jump kick the stage 8 boss Janez because she always try to throw me, and I can just crouch punch the stage 9 boss B.M because he keeps on using high attacks....... I'LL TAKE IT! And when I make them fly trough their arenas, it feels so damn good! And then I proceed to continue the main game and never go back to Fighting Vipers again!
  5. This is like, the most ambitious game ever. Red Dead Redemption 2's ambitious too in terms of realism and the amount of crazy side contents, but this?? This is No Man's Piece of Crap if it actually have a story and combat mechanic that's good. WHICH IS FUCKING AWESOME!! And the distance gap between two players can be so damn far that one can be in space and the other can be in a building in another planet?? GIVE ME THIS GAME NOW!!!!! If they can pull this off without the game being as buggy as Fallout 76, then this game will be Ubisoft's best game so far. Oh please polish everything and make this game awesome!
  6. Exactly. Because the people who decides the awards are mostly people with common sense instead of the Academy Awards who gives rewards to people that kiss their asses. I am on board with most of the decisions for the awards, except 2017 where Nier Automata should have won best story. And 2016. Overwatch as GOTY?? Uncharted 4 deserves that award!
  7. When I followed the Game Awards and noticed that 4 of the awards was won by Red Dead Redemption 2, I was fucking pissed off. We got a few neat reveals like Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for Switch only which caught me off guard, the Crash Team Racing remaster, Far Cry New Dawn which thankfully continues Farcry 5 after that horrible true ending, that new game by the creator of Bastion and recently Pyre, that Outer Worlds game which is definitely a giant fuck you to Fallout 76, and that Shadow of the Colossus esque archery game made by the same people behind Abzu and Journey, which makes me happy because FINALLY they're making a game with actual combat gameplay. Other than that, I was annoyed and I thought this whole show will just be a giant Red Dead Redemption 2 showoff. Then Ed Boon comes out, only for me to groan because he's nominating the best Sports/ Racing game. AND THEN SCORPION'S SPEAR CRASHES THE NOMINATION, THUNDER SHOWS UP AND MORTAL KOMBAT FUCKING 11 BITCHES!!!! AND THEN PSYCHONAUTS 2!!! AND THEN WE FINALLY GET TO SEE GAMEPLAY FROM V IN DMC5!!!! AAARRRRRRGHHHHHHH THIS IS AWESOME!!!!! And after that point, when it looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 will win another award, it thankfully doesn't, then my main character from Persona 5 is coming to Smash, and GOTY goes to God of War. Fucking well done Game Awards, you actually managed to turn me from being pissed, to being happy in an instant. My applause goes to thee!
  8. hahaha, well considering that Avengers Infinity War is a 2 parter, this is appropriate. I could call it Avengers 4, but that'll be too common.
  9. Endgame. That is the best title for this film. I can't fucking wait to see how this story ends! Kind of weird seeing Hawkeye being like..... that. But he'll be back to his bow and arrow self. Looking at how Antman is there, he's definitely going to play a big role in bringing everyone back considering the last Antman movie. How will the Quantum Realm play a part in this whole thing I wonder? I'll have to watch the film and find out!
  10. So I got an invite to play Anthem's closed alpha. I installed 37.6 GB of it, and then play it for a bit. It was fun. This is like a solo Mass Effect Andromeda with the jumping jetpack, but surprisingly no covering involved. You can fly with the jetpack as well, which is pretty cool, which Just Cause 3 and Dark Void already did Difference is that in this game, you can use your jetpack underwater, and your jetpack can overheat, so you can reduce the heat by stopping using it, or flythrough water sources, like a waterfall or a water vortex. Which is weird because doesn't it usually breaks electronic equipment if you put water on it?? Apparently from what I read, the game takes place in a world that's abandoned by the Gods before it could even be fully created. The walls of Fort Tarsis keep humanity safe, and the only people who leave it regularly are Freelancers, mercenaries with massive suits of powered armor called Javelins. So.... it's attack on Titan but with advanced weaponries, lots of anomalies which creates cool stuff like messed up waterfall that's upside down, and a lot of hostile wildlifes. Oh yeah, and psychics called "cyphers" assist you in recon work. The game starts right in the middle of a huge battle where these giant monsters show up and you try to stop a cataclismic event from spreading further, but unfortunately the Titans, ahem I mean big rock golems overrun you + your teammates and you have to retreat. Then this brief text appears saying what happens after that, and then you're in a different place accompanied by a fun guy named Owen. You can see the whole missions right here, before it eventually gets removed There's a lot of "secure this outpost" moments in the alpha as you can see. After that happened, I customize who I look like, then level up one of my 3 atributes which either increases health, ammo drop or jetpack usage, explore my base of operation in first person mode, talking to Owen and the other people who are looking for work, which was offered by this one corporation lady and her goods. Unfortunately I had to go to church for choir practice, so that's as far as I go, and unfortunately by the time I got back, I can't play the game anymore unless it's at a specific time. I'll have to wait until that time window to continue the game. Though I assume it'll be like this And after finally being able to continue my game, I was right. Open world exploration, and a mission to follow through. Just like Destiny. Even though it's such a shame that Bioware has been forced to generalize their game into this third person shooter with Jetpack and lootings and strip away the choices you can make, I don't want this game to fail since if it fails, then from what I heard EA will change Bioware, whatever that means, which is a bad2 thing. I mean sure it's unfortunate that this game will end up being Mass Effect Andromeda but with Destiny lootings, but it's still going to be fun with other people to play, and there's potentially going to be giant monsters to take down which I am interested in. I won't buy the game most likely, but time will tell. Maybe the game will end up surprising me and be more than meets the eye. I mean imagine if there's space battles in this game! Which well, Warframe already did actually so..... ah well we'll see how this game goes.
  11. It finally happened. CS GO is free to play. Next thing you know it's Overwatch's turn, but that'll probably not happen for another 4 years. At least I have a Prime account for free!
  12. 119) Domino Drop Platform: iPhone It's like Tetris, but with dominoes. So you drop dominoes down & the more same number string you make the better. It's fun. Funny coincidence that Red Dead Redemption 2 has a lot of dominoes and I play that minigame a lot too. 120) Soul Calibur 6 Platform: PC Ahhhh Soul Calibur 6. How awesome it is that this game is finally out! It's the same as Soul Calibur before, but with Soul Charge & Critical Edge which adds more depth to combat. And great solo story modes to play as well! Unlike that abomination that was Tekken 7's character story modes...... shudder..... I don't know why initially there's a lot of create a character Voldo clones with giant dicks on them.... like, WAAYYY too much of those guys I fought. Luckily there's a ban warning imposed to the people who does that so now everyone's normal! 121) OwlsandVowels Platform: PC The beauty of working in a videogame marketing agency: you get to know different obscure games. Like this! It's a word matching game. So it's scribble + bejewelled. The better the words you create, the higher the points. Different stages has different rules to them, so in on you have to get the high score, in the other you have to use specific letters in the alphabet, and create 4+ letter words as examples. It's surprisingly fun, and really engaging. Best part is there's unlimited lives, not like Candy Crush with their stupid "wait 1 hour for your next live if you fail a game" horseshit. I even learn new words that I never thought existed, like picosecond, triennium and biennial! 122) Nightgate Platform: iPhone Quite a relaxing game where you're a dot and you guide your dot to your destination, while avoiding red obstacles along the way. There's a story about networking and stuff, but I just like the many different pretty shapes this game had which is zen like. Gives me calmness when I see them.
  13. Aside from the fact that Harada lied by saying that returning characters will not be paid DLCS but free, I got a lot of things to say here. Well, Marduk STILL doesn't have an Australian accent even though he's Australian. Armor King is pretty much the best thing about this since his moves are now WAY more awesome. And...... why is Julia a completely different character now?? I don't mind because she's become a lot cuter and I like it this way..... but isn't she supposed to be a serious nature lover instead of this.... youtube extreme sports streamer girl?? What happened here??? That's like if all of a sudden Nina suddenly acts like Anna. IT MAKES NO SENSE! Maybe she's just doing that as a cover for her mission, or something. We'll see if there's a plot reason for it. And that Negan reveal..... wow....... that is the most tryhard thing I have ever seen. Are you telling me that Negan, this regular baseball bat loving psychopath, is tougher than the entire Tekken 7 characters combined who are mostly expert martial artists + demons that was known to be so tough as nails that they can take on huge armies by themselves and can easily whoop him + his entire groups' ass in an instant? This is it. The Walking Dead tv show is slowly crumbling apart.
  14. Good thing I don't bother with this game cause I know it's just online Fallout 4. But I didn't expect this game to be worse than Elder Scrolls Online and Sea of Thieves. Holy shit what a FUCKING DISASTER! These many bugs?? This lazy of a content?? This is pretty much No Man's Piece of Crap, or Metal Gear Boring Zombie Fest, only it's by Bethesda. That's like if the MCU actually made Fantastic Four 2015 instead of Fox! On the bright side, I laugh hard at this review. And Doom Eternal + Rage 2 will be even better than this crap. Maybe the teams are busy making those games and decided to give Fallout 76 to interns. Which is just fucking sad but it's the most logical explanation for this whole shit. People definitely should get a refund for this game, which unfortunately Bethesda didn't approve of. Dick move there.
  15. Oh my God, there will be an adventure mode this time with CO OP ACTION?? You can get loots?? Customizable character in this adventure mode??? YESSS!! YESSSS!!! YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! FINALLY, the mode that I want for so long is now back! This is the Armageddon / Shaolin Monks sequel that I've been waiting for! Oooooh I'm so gonna play the shit out of this mode!! I REALLY hope this leak is true & they will show this mode in the game awards. Like have it play without any of the MK characters at first, and then in the middle of the gameplay, FINISH HIM appear and then you can do different combinations of buttons to do multiple fatalities like Shaolin Monks. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS! XD XD XD
  16. Predator’s my personal best MK character. Besides Kuai Liang aka Sub Zero 2. It’ll be great if every guest character will show up in MK XI. But we’ll have to wait and see if that will happen. My guess is there will be new guest characters as dlcs, like Pinhead, the nun from Conjuring, Ash from Evil Dead (PERFECT), Hannibal Lecter, Candyman or Michael Myers.
  17. No, GOTY for 2018 is not God of War, Spiderman PS4 or Red Dead Redemption 2. THIS IS: The spinoff of the Yakuza series is looking magnificent. These are 80% new heat action for this game, and only 20% from previous Yakuza. And that's not counting potential new heat moves, duo heat moves and the fuckload of minigames + detective investigations to do! Coming December 13 in Asian countries, and I will pre order this game. It'll be in chinese and I won't understand a thing BUT I DON'T CARE! I can actually get the first chapter of this game now, but I have to buy PS Plus for that which I don't want to do. I WANT THE FULL GAME NOW!!!!
  18. Actually there's a global event coming up in December 15 - 16 called Couch Warriors Crossup. https://www.couchwarriors.org/category/couchwarriors-crossup/ It's a big worldwide Dragonball FighterZ tournament which I will take part in, which also has other fighting game tournaments to join in. Buut since it's coming soon, I'm guessing you don't have the time for it, and it's probably not your kind of event if you don't play fighting games. Australia always waits for newcomers, so feel free to come any time you want.
  19. At last, I attended yet another year of PAX Australia since I first came last year by chance, and it's even better than before! Well except the waiting line. I did not remember the waiting line being this crowded. Last year I just went in the building. This year? Waited 45 minutes outside, and then 10 minutes inside. Looks like this event got even more popular than last time! PAX is as expected, filled to the brim with the games you expect: Kingdom Hearts 3, Resident Evil 2 Remake, Devil May Cry 5, Days Gone, Spyro Reignited, RAGE 2, Sekiro, Hitman 2, but oddly enough no Just Cause 4 even though there's an event all about this game in the schedule, but maybe it's because it's in a different building. My original plan was to play those games, but unfortunately for me, it is not worth it one bit. Just look at this line. These guys are at front already, and they waited 2 freaking hours just to get there because there's the whole "haunted house" thing inside for the people that went inside. So I was like "fuck this shit" and don't even bother with it. The same applies to the other games, except Sekiro. That game is inside the PS4 booth and apparently not many people play it because they think it's too hard. Lucky for me, I played Dark Souls & Tenchu, so this game is right up my alley. The gameplay is as I expected, a mix of Tenchu and Dark Souls. So you got the stealth, stealth kills and movements of Tenchu mixed with the slow methodical attacks of Dark Souls, which makes for an awesome combination. Though there's no Soul gathering or stamina mechanic here. You kill an enemy, they die and only drop items instead of soul points for upgrades. So imagine Tenchu 3 but with Dark Souls combat and open world navigation. I breezed through most of the Sekiro demo, until the demo boss appeared. Me and 6 other dudes took turns to beat this guy. At first I got hit a lot by his spear attacks, but then I figured out that the way to beat this guy is to fill the guard meter above which allows you to land a killing blow that reduces one of his 3 health bars. You can actually block at the same time as his attack which causes his guard meter to go up, except the one with the red kanji. It took many of our tries, but finally I ended his ass and pop off big time while everyone else cheered as well. It was a great time, just as expected from the guys who made Dark Souls. Aside from the games, I went to the indie dev sections for my job to network a lot of the game devs there, and I saw a lot of great creative games, especially this one which makes me laugh so hard, and even better when John Robertson the comedian & the narrator himself is actually there and make fun of everyone who plays this game, including me. I love it so much that I bought it on the spot. I will definitely play this game, right after I play the crap out of Red Dead Redemption 2. And I went to one of the PC Accessories stand tournaments which offers prizes, one of which is a "win 3 Street Fighter V rounds and you'll get a keyboard" competition. Which I won! Then I went to 3 fighting game tournaments, primarily because I went to 2 of this tournament for PAX 2017 but I lost, so I'm back to get the medal prizes for payback biyatch. 2 on Friday for Soul Calibur 6 and Dragonball FighterZ, and yet another Dragonball FighterZ tournament on Saturday. I won them all. But I promised my brother in law's niece that I will give the third medal to her, so I guess I only have 2 medals. Then again, 2 of the same medal is more than enough so might as well give the extra third one! BTW my match for the third medal is live streamed on Twitch, so here's the link for those that are interested. My match starts at minute 15. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/327981089 Then after that, I went home and play Red Dead Redemption 2, which wow..... the tiny details & excellent sidequests in this game is fucking unbelievable. So that's PAX AUS 2018 for me. Won tournaments, found out that the lines for the major games except Sekiro was so not worth it, and I had a freaking great time. Except waiting in the building entrance line. Hopefully 2019 will not be this bad, but I guess I'll have to deal with the same lines again when the time comes. XD
  20. I usually just go to these websites http://www.offgamers.com/buy/steamwalletcard-sea.html https://www.pcgamesupply.com/ After you buy from them, they'll give you the code for the steam wallet that you can redeem on Steam. Thankfully Steam giftcards are usually universal so you don't have to pick specific steam cards from a specific country, but check just to be save.
  21. 117) Red Dead Redemption 2 Platform: PS4 Joe reviewed this. I reviewed this. It's Red Dead Redemption 2. Go get this game & experience wild west once again, and be depressed because eventually Red Dead Redemption 1 will happen and everything goes downhill. But at least you can enjoy the many wacky adventures that this game provides! 118) Hitman 2 Platform: PC AKA the season 2 of 2016's marvelous Hitman. The best part is the entire first season is also included in this game, and you can get it for free if you own the first game, so more contents to play around with! More missions, more funny ways to kill people, and more pretty sceneries to look at. But for some reason, I encountered this glitch in the first mission. Though seeing how that spooky picture is there, maybe this is intentional? ?_? I love how 47 in this game has the wittiest remark while in disguise. He does not give a fuck about anything and just bluntly say whatever's on his mind. Like how if you dress like a house agent in the fifth mission, he'll describe a house he's selling to the target in the driest tone imaginable, saying things like "this is the kitchen. It's the most dangerous room in the house", saying the attic is "small, tends to be prone to a leaky roof and likely houses various types of molds", and there's even a room where the previous owner of the house died in, which 47 gave a detailed forensic investigation report. It's so funny it hurts! I don't get why the cutscenes in this season is all done in those frozen in place style cutscenes. You know the ones where people talk and you only see the person standing still in a single pose without the mouth opening, especially in comic book esque games like Injustice's arcade endings? I guess it's a design choice that the dev goes with. I prefer the cool cutscenes of the first season but ah well, still alright. The game ends on a sequel bait which annoys me because we're just getting to the really good stuff, but I look forward to the next season to finally finish what has been started. In the meantime, I'll definitely replay the entire game and do different assassination methods, because that's the beauty of this series!
  22. No, except that Joe mentioned there’s a section in Cuba, but that’s not that big.
  23. Hot damn, Joe 100% this game?? I finished the game and I'm just at 83%! That's dedication right there.
  24. I finally beat this game. And as expected, this game is Red Dead Redemption on steroids, mixed with a bit of Oregon Trail. In other words, HOLY SHIT THIS GAME IS FUCKING AWESOME!!!! I think it's pretty obvious to everyone who played the first game what this game's story is about. This is the story of the Van Der Linde gang in 1899, 12 years before the first Red Dead Redemption game and back when the gang is a powerful Robin Hood esque group who look out for each other. You play as Arthur Morgan, aka the one guy that should have been mentioned a lot in the first Red Dead Redemption game by everyone since he has such a big role, but Rockstar didn't have any plans for him back when they made the first game so oh well, he's pretty much the Iden Versio of Red Dead, only MUCH2 better written and not lazily shoe horned in to fit the overall plot like that Battlefront 2 story UURRGHHH WHY DO YOU DO THAT EA??? Such a shame because after playing this game, I want Arthur to be mentioned a lot in the first Red Dead Redemption. Oh well, maybe when the first Redemption remake is out, if there is any plan for it. Yakuza Kiwami did it perfectly so why not here? You follow Dutch back when he's still a good charismatic guy and not an insane killer like in the first Redemption game, and you pretty much go through the gang's tragic downward spiral from a powerful and close companion group into the former shell of themselves, and it's a really good story to see through, even if it's a sad and depressing one. You can interact with many of the gang members in your camp and get to know them well. Like Javier and Bill before they become assholes in the first game, the badass ladies like miss Grimshaw, Tilly and Karen, or even the Marston family. I feel simpathy for these guys. They're good people who unfortunately have to rob here and there because the government screwed them over, and each time they try to do something that can potentially give them a good news, the corrupt gorvernment + other gangs has to come in and ruin everthing. If they live in the modern time, they could have been rescued by government officials who actually are honest and want to replace the current government to give the right chance for people, like Michael Townley from GTA V, but they don't have such luxury. Old west sucks ass. The best thing about the game's story mode is of course, like the first game, there's an epilogue you can play. Which strangely enough is NOT an epilogue, but it's as if the whole 70% of the previous things you did are just the prologue while the epilogue is where the real game begins, if that makes any sense. It's like Assassin's Creed 3, but you play as Haytham for 70% of the game before finally playing as Connor. Or LA Noire where you play as Cole before playing as Jack Kelso for the rest of the game, but instead of playing as Kelso for just 3 missions, you play as Kelso during the middle of the Vice case. In this case, you of course play as John Marston, which segways beautifully into the first Red Dead Redemption. I actually knew that this is going to happen considering that Rockstar did this thing all the time ever since the first Red Dead Redemption, so I purposefully skipped a lot of the Strangers quest so I can play them as John to get the best experience out of playing him, but I didn't expect John's section to be THIS GOOD! It's not just a 1 mission thing like the first game, but you actually go through his life that leads to him making the ranch from the first game. Ever wonder why Uncle is there even though all he does is lazying around all day? Now you know. And the best part is that if you actually started a Strangers quest as Arthur and didn't complete it, John will actually reference it to the quest giver. He'll say "my friend Arthur did this and he wanted me to complete the rest, so here I am to help" so it avoids awkard moment of the quest giver treating you as the same person as Arthur. THAT'S FUCKING AWESOME! Kudos for that attention to detail Rockstar, even though you worked your employees 100 hours per week. Anyone who played the first Red Dead Redemption game should feel right at home here. The Dead Eye mechanic, buying and customizing weapons which is now elaborate like GTA5, the honor mechanic but no Fame mechanic, the tight gunplay, the various gambling minigames, strangers missions, the exploration, they're all here and so so much better. The most impressive ones though are the random side missions that's not a stranger mission, but they are still very elaborate. You know how in the first game the stranger missions are structured like: you go to the white circle and activate the mission? They're still here, but the random events are 10 times more varied and even better than the stranger missions. There's the simple ones like rescuing a kidnapped victim, fighting someone in a saloon, helping carriages to safety, helping a guy that's caught in a bear trap, helping people who got attacked by wolves, but there's the crazy fucking deep ones like helping a father and his sons build a house by giving them woods from helping a foreman in the forrest, finding out that a store owner trapped a poor man in his basement and dress him as his 6 year old child because he's a fucking lunatic, go to a house which has a hillbilly inbred couple Go to a swamp which has a crying woman, only to find out that she belongs to a cannibal cult that immediately jumps for you, meet some dumbass KKK clan members and SO. SO. SO. SO. SO many more that you can pretty much make an entire game just filled with these things, and that game would still be fucking awesome. The new thing that this game have though is the RPG the horse caring mechanic & self management mechanic. Your horse is your best friend in this game. By increasing your bond with it, you increase its stats & it will unlock abilities which are useful for traveling later, and if a horse die, it dies for good and all that effort taking care of it is pretty much gone which will make you sad and angry, until you found out that you can just load a save file to save the horse. You have to eat, rest, smoke and drink to fill up your 3 bars: health, stamina & dead eye. The inner layer that is, the outer layer gets replenished by drinking tonics like in the first game. You can increase them by doing stuff like hunting animals, doing trick shots to enemies, running a lot and fighting people a lot. Common sense stuff also applies here. If you eat too much, you'll get fat. If you eat to little, you'll get thinner. And if you don't sleep enough, you'll get dizzy and it'll make shooting harder. You can cook animal meat in camp to get items that restore these 3 bars the best instead of getting foods from the general store or looting which restores a few. So my advice is to cook a lot so you have a lot of these things to heal yourself. Oh speaking of hunting....... holy shit does the animal skinning gets extremely realistic to the point of scarring me for life. You know how in the first game you don't actually see an animal get skinned? Now you can see the whole damn process. The first time I saw a deer got skinned in this game, I was shocked so much. I didn't think they would actually go there, but then it got worse. MUCH MUCH WORSE! Each time an alligator got skinned, I cringe from how painfull it looks. There's also camping management, which reminds me of Oregon Trail. You can donate meat + goods + money into the camp, and then you can upgrade it to give you benefits, like having a fast travel, a medicine cart to give you health items and others. You can also do chores for the camp which increases you honor and core stats, and talk with a lot of the gang members like I mentioned before. By donating animal skins or carcases to the resident cook Pearson, you can customize your camp to make it more stylish and craft pouches which increases your items count. Unfortunately these things will be undone once you switch to John, and by the time you switch to him, you can just buy the increase inventory pouches from the black market, so you better off just selling these things to the market. As much as I LOVE this game a lot though, this game isn't perfect. Because no game is perfect. I encountered several annoying things that fortunately are small issues. Like the fact that for some damn reason, controlling your horse in this game is so sensitive that I often smash into people in the streets even though all I want is to speed up a bit, which causes them to report me to the cops and I had to pay my bounty. How initially the gun control is tricky because you actually have to cock your gun by either pressing LT or the shoot button again before firing the next round, which thankfully you don't have to do with semi auto guns. Also these things: It's also annoying that even though you have an auto horse ride feature if you go to cinematic mode and just let the button go, your darn horse can do something dumb like hitting other horse carriages and hitting a moving train, which killed the horse and causes me to reload a previous save. The fact that other than Dead Eye, once you switch to John, your health, stamina, money and Honor levels are reset. I actually like this because that means I get to finally play the real Red Dead Redemption 2 game with him, but COME ON, I had $3,000 before! Which fortunately doesn't matter because you get MUCH more after you play the final main quest. But the worst part is that you can't swim after this. Which is a funny nod to the first game, but I like swimming damn it! And for some unexplained reason, I encountered a lot of glitches in this game, like npcs popping up, items floating, Pinkerton agent badges floating in front of them, this Or this It's funny though so I don't mind. Overall, need I say more? Get this game NOW! I give this my rating of "so awesome you will play this again and again" with a badass seal of approval. Potential GOTY for sure. I would not mind at all if there's going to be a DLC that continues after the epilogue, or even continues the first Red Dead Redemption's epilogue so it makes the game title make sense because Red Dead Redemption 2 is NOT a sequel. Yet. Let's see how the Red Dead Redemption 2 online is like. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to help strangers & complete all the strangers quest, while hopefully not getting my horse hit a tree head on. And play Hitman 2!
