  1. 74) My Friend Pedro (full PC version) Platform: PC At last, after this game's preview at E3 2018, and after playing the flash game, the circle of Pedro is now complete. Even the launch trailer is awesome As for the game itself, it's like the flash game on steroids with more platforming puzzles that makes you have to shoot switches to open up locked platforms. There's 40 levels in this game and each levels has rankings depending on how long your killing combos are. If you can kill everyone in sight without resetting the kill combo, you'll definitely get S rank easy, though it's impossible in some stages since you have to do platforming puzzles which resets the combo multiplier. Good thing is you can rack up the points if you play the game on the hardest difficulty which reduces your healthbar to just 1 and makes almost every enemy shots very deadly, if you like racking up points that is, otherwise you can just enjoy the game without care which will take around 3 - 4 hours to complete. Shame it's that short and the only replayability is just you trying to S rank every stage, but it's still a lot of fun regardless. 75) BirdGut Platform: PC This is a free Steam game where you play as a deformed insect that's thrown out of your home, and you're eaten by a bird. So your goal is to get out of that bird while traveling through its intestines. Interestingly this bird's intestine is pretty much a factory for insects, so you'll see each intestines having their own divisions & workers. It's like Bugs Life, only with modern tools! 76) Assault Spy Platform: PC This is quite an entertaining game. Basically, this game is what happens when you take Dante & turn his sword + Yamato loadout into a single character, and then make his fist gauntlet + Pandora's box + Ebony & Ivory loadout into another character. Then make it all anime as hell. The plot of the game is pretty much this: You're a spy working to steal info from a robot factory. Then you get inside the robot factory & turns out the factory is taken over. Then plot twists left and right ensues which I can't say because it's quite fun to go through. I hope there's a sequel to this game. The combat is quite fun even though it's pretty much and elseworld DMC & I would love to see more characters with their own special move lists added. 77) Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Platform: PC OHOHOHOHO MAN, the creator of Symphony of the Night has come back to make his own game universe with the same Metroidvania stuff he's known for, and it is beautiful! Freaking Snake is cast as one of the cast which was the main character of the 8 bit throwback game Curse of the Moon? Shovel Knight is also here? There's many unashamedly cheeky Castlevania esque enemies & areas put together? There's THIS? Alucard is also here, right down to having the same voice actor?? And there's even giant dogs & cats as enemies?? This game is freaking awesome. My nostalgia sense was tingling every step of the way I play this game from the beginning right down to the very end after I completed 99.80% of the entire map. IGA, well done. You made your kickstarter goal & created the game that everyone requested, and you added so many more awesome stuff in it, including free upcoming dlcs. This game is definitely one of the best of 2019 & I can't wait to play the upcoming dlcs!
  2. It's those shit kids' fault. They're responsible for the Joker being created. Lesson here: be nice. If not, you will create a monster that unleashes his retribution to you & the world. Joe already made a reaction of this Can't wait to see this film. This trailer's tone is perfect for a Joker origin story before shit hits the fan. We get to see young Bruce & looks like Bruce's dad is going to be a corrupt businessman and who the Joker will ruin/ kill, causing Bruce to become Batman. Pretty interesting take on the lore there, but I want to see how this goes since looks like this will either be a new alternate universe unrelated to the DCU films before, or it's the same universe all along and Joaquin is the first incarnation of Joker before Jared Leto becomes his successor or something. Hope this film turns out to be awesome!
  3. https://io9.gizmodo.com/robert-pattinson-is-your-new-batman-1834829741?IR=T Yes. This guy Is going to become Batman....... I.......... need a moment to process this. Wow. So this guy goes from acting as a vampire who sparkles, to acting as a playboy millionaire who defends Gotham in the night with a bat costume......... now that's what I call a complete opposite! Actually not quite because he's playing a bat so......... at least it's actually accurate to the time of day activity this time! Seriously though, if back in those Twilight abomination movies someone say "Edward is going to become Batman in the future", I will not believe a single word of it. But it happens now so........ Oh God it actually happens! Save thyselves!!! We'll see how this goes. Who knows, maybe he can pull it off & be a surprisingly good Batman! But for now, we'll just have to wait & see. The good thing is I don't think he'll be as bad as Jesse Eisenberg playing Lex Luthor so that's a relief.
  4. 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.
  5. 71) Dead Space 2 Platform: PC Since RE2 Remake was damn good, I'm in the mood for RE4 - 6 esque shooter esque games of the past. One of them being Dead Space, 2 specifically because that's my personal favorite. Now that I replayed 2, it has aged really damn well & still really damn fun to play. It doesn't scare me one bit since there's too many obnoxious jump scares, all except that fucking eye needle section that I still am scared to play even now. Shudder. Still, all that matters is that it's still so much fun killing necromorphs by dismembering their limbs by any means necessary, and the natural futuristic HUD in this game is still very refreshing to see, though I do wish that you can skip cutscenes so that I can get through the talking parts that I already listened to before. 72) The Surge Platform: PC This is that game from the maker of Lords of the Fallen, that game which has a smooth fast paced combat with Dark Souls mechanics. This one still has Dark Souls mechanics, but the combat emphasizes more on aiming enemy limbs so you can perform fatalities on them and get separate gears & materials for each limbs. And it takes place in a futuristic setting where there's a lot of robots & people that went haywire and tries to kill everyone in their sight. I actually played this game last year, then I got really bored with it because the grinding in this game is so damn obnoxious that I had to kill 30+ enemies just to upgrade my gears, and no matter how much I upgrade, it seems that my character dies so quickly that I question if there's any need to upgrade at all. When I got back to playing this game, turns out there's actually implants that significantly upgrades your max HP, but I found it WAY LATE in the game which suddenly turns the game from way too hard and grindy to actually being a normal Souls esque game...... WHY CAN'T I ACQUIRE THE HEALTH UPGRADE MUCH EARLIER??? This game actually achieves one of the rarest things in gaming nowadays: it has a final level that destroys any good thing it had before. The game starts fun, then it becomes boring, then it becomes fun again towards the end, then the end section has to add a fuckload of mazes for you to navigate through which sucks the fun out of it. The entire games' level design have mazes in the form of maintenance tunnels that sometimes can lead you to a shortcut to your savepoint. It's all well and good, but the final level in this game went WAAAYYY too far with putting so many hard to kill enemies & making navigation a pain in the fucking ass because there's so many freaking maintenance tunnels that looks the same, so much so that I actually went in circles 5 times just trying to figure out a way out to my save point. By the time I beat the final boss, I immediately uninstall the game & don't want to play it anymore. THANK GOD that's over with! Oh please don't let Surge 2 have any more of those annoying mazes to deal with! 73) My Friend Pedro ( flash) Platform: PC To prepare myself for the upcoming insanity of a game that is My Friend Pedro, I decided to go back to a previous version of this game, which is a flash game that can be played here. https://www.crazygames.com/game/my-friend-pedro It's definitely way simpler than the upcoming game, but it's still fun. You can slow mo & shoot guys with style, though there's no score to rack up & you can't do the stylish stuff that the upcoming game has. The final boss though is quite crazy, that I can't wait to see if the Steam version will have a similar level. Only 1 week to go!
  6. I don't mean "I don't care about the lore" in THAT way. I mean I'll just enjoy the game for what it is because it's not going to affect the plot of the films anyway. I played all the great Star Wars game from the Super SNES games right down to my personal favorites Jedi Outcast + Jedi Academy, which I love so much because they nail the lightsaber part so damn right and they have good Star Wars story even though they're non canon. I actually quite enjoyed the newer films. Force Awakens more than the Last Jedi. They don't suck, they just have different story directions which, well, piss a lot of Star Wars lore enthusiasts. They're still fun films that did the lore better than the fucking prequels did, and I hope Rise of Skywalker will redeem this new trilogy in the end. Also, as mangled as the lore are, they're not as bad as how horrible Game of Thrones betrayed the fans with the fuck up that is the last season after years of loyalty to the series. Joe has a vid on the game impression. Well, he and I like the game preview. Looks like we just gotta see if the full game will be as good as it looks, or if EA will fuck it up. Wow, so here's something unexpected: after this conference, people get to see an extended session of this game + play the game for themselves. And their response is the same: they all love the game & apparently, the press conference gameplay was made easier because the real game is like Sekiro level difficulty. Maybe not THAT hard but it's certainly challenging. And that the game will be like Mass Effect 2 where you can explore different places & do main + sidequests, and that some areas require unlocking abilities to open them. Well, now I'm even more excited about this game! It'll certainly be 10 + hours long & make me able to do saber duels like Sekiro. I am expecting Darth Maul / previous Jedis to fight as bonus bosses since Cal has a flashback ability. I can totally see him having a flashback to fight those guys to unlock mind reading, or some other cool abilities like that. Can't wait!
  7. Well, lightsabers in these Star Wars games hasn't cut people after Jedi Knight. It's probably so that kids who play these games won't be traumatized for life. But it's still dumb! Lightsabers in the films cut people, why not the games??? Actually Fallen Order looks pretty good. Definitely the only thing worth a damn in EA's press conference. It's miles more interesting than Battlefront that's for sure, it has skill progressions + a bit of Uncharted, and the combat is gonna be actually challenging since you're fighting Inquisitor troopers that can put up a fight. I've just played Sekiro & I want more sword duels so this makes me happy. Respawn knows their shit with Titanfall & Apex Legend, so they can do this game justice. Please have the game be more than 10 hours long! As for the lore of the game, I don't even give a crap about these things since all I care about are that the gameplay is fun and in the end it's just backstory anyway, or will end up as not canon like Force Unleashed. But it seems that the game is gonna be canon, at least for now before it's non canon & take place before Rogue One since Saw Gerrera is in here. I never heard about Cal Kestis before this game so I'm just gonna say that he's gonna die in the end, go into another hiding, or become one of Luke's teachers after Star Wars 6. Whatever the case, it's just backstory & I'll just enjoy the game for what it is.
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. FINALLY, COMBAT GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE & RELEASE DATE!! On a serious note, this trailer has Hideo Kojima written all over it like usual. Only a couple of gameplay footage, vague story, and so many things that makes you just question how the actual final game will be like. And that is AWESOME! Can't fucking wait to get my hands on this game!
  11. 70) Rochard Platform: PC Steam Spring Cleaning does it again. This game is what happens if Shadow Complex removes its Metroidvania elements, replace the gun with a Half Life gravity gun which can fire bullets and grenades, have it be funnier & you have access to change gravity at will. It's a pretty sweet combination. You basically play as a miner named John Rochard who got screwed by his boss, so now you're kicking his ass. There's a lot of levels to explore each with their own little unique puzzles on how you can use gravity to platform your way across, and each levels also have hidden collectibles for you to hunt. I managed to collect 90% of them with the ones I missed being in the early levels. Unfortunately, the game ends on a cliffhanger, and there's no sequel since 2011. URRGHHH, I WANT TO SEE HOW THE STORY CONTINUES DAMN IT!
  12. Yerp Hmm, Monster Trucks. Now that I drive my own car, if I saw those things driving in the road, I will just run the other way around because there's no way in hell I want to get squashed by those! It's surprising that Rockstar of all people published that game, and only GTA San Andreas, GTA Advance + GTA V has those trucks. I thought these things would show up everywhere in GTA! Thanks to Steam Spring Cleanup, I managed to play some old ass games that's been hanging in my library. This game called Hover in particular has really funky music. The game reminds me of Jet Set Radio, minus the roller blades.
  13. SPOILER ALERT INCOMING: Unfortunately, it's unlikely. Just because both films are owned by Sony, doesn't mean it's the same universe. It has to be the same director, or producer who made both films to link the universe together, unless it's a DC or an MCU film. It makes more sense that Glass is the sequel to Split because M Night is the director so he can do what he wants. This film is pretty much one of those "what if Superman is evil instead of good" fan theory comes to life. In the end of the film, there's even a good Lex Luthor & evil Aquaman + Wonder Woman sequel bait. But who knows? Maybe it will turn out that Hancock is part of the same universe in the sequel after all. We'll just see if Sony will go through with it. Surprisingly though, there is actually another superhero film that's in the same universe as Brigthburn. This Because James Gunn the producer of this film made that film & in the sequel bait, the main character is in a photo. Hm, but I don't think he stands a chance against the villains since he doesn't have superpowers. Maybe he will through a freak accident? We'll have to wait and find out!
  14. You already posted Steel Reign back in...... 2016?? Holy crap, time flies! Speaking of Tank games, here's another one from my childhood that's pretty dope called Mass Destruction. Cool songs as well This next one is Rive, a game that I haven't played in a while but finally got back to because of the Steam Spring Cleaning event, and I'm glad I did because this game is really fun, and with a great soundtrack!
  15. Steam is currently doing a Spring Cleaning event where I can get rewards for playing old games I owned, so I played some really old ass stuff I haven't played in a while. 63) Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory Platform: PC This looks like a harmless platformer starring a sugar cube. Basically each time you move, you will flip a tile. Some tiles have double items like a platform or a spike so you gotta be strategic in moving forward in a couple of these stages. It makes you think "ooh, what a cute little game about a sugar cube rescuing other sugar cubes! What a happy game." And then the ending happened and your main character died because he melts after taking a stroll on a rainy day. Because he's a sugar cube and sugar melts with water.......... WHAT THE FUCK???? THIS GAME IS EVIL I TELLS YA, EVIL!!! That is unless you gain all the secret collectibles in levels which there are secret collectibles. Then it ends happily. PHEW, don't scare me like that game! 64) Himno Platform: PC I guess this is a rougelike endless platformer where your goal is to just collect as many gold as possible and get as high as you can. Weird thing is your character has a giant sword on his back, but there's no enemies to fight. What's the point?? But then again this game's supposed to just be a relaxing stroll up a bunch of platforms so it's pretty relaxing. Hm... maybe this game is a prologue to an actual game starring this character? We shall wait and see. 65) Observation Platform: PC The intro of this game looks really promising with the unsettling song choice Basically you're on a space ship where you're playing as an AI named SAM while you assist a woman named Emma Fisher. Both of you are trying to figure out what happened on your space station, and then 2001 a Space Odyssey shit happens, aka MIND FUCK. This game is pretty much 2001 A Space Odyssey, except even more confusing. The first half of the game is pretty straightforward in that you navigate through the space ship solving puzzles to uncover what actually happens in the story, then the second half happens and well, logic is out of the damn space. Prepare to get really confused & don't question any of it. Just enjoy the madness unfolding while looking at how pretty space is! 66) Yakuza Kiwami 2 Platform: PC So this game was recently released on PC, and I just had to play this game again. This time with 60 FPS and in English! And I still have just as much fun as this game as before on PS4 where I can't understand 90% of what happened because it's a Chinese version I bought from the Singapore PSN. This time I actually understand the dialogue choices so I don't have to brute force my way through, and looking back on the PS4 version I played, I actually picked the absolute funniest and worst choices with that version. Like there's a sidequest involving a mock job interview, and I realized that in the Chinese version, I basically mock everyone of my colleague for how nerdy they are and how they can't work properly, IN FRONT OF THE INTERVIEWER. Oh God, what have I done! I played the everliving crap out of this game all over again, and this time I FINALLY unlocked the battles with the Amon clan & beat them. My reward: the essence of Skullfuck which is essentially Kiryu's ultimate heat move you get in Yakuza 0 from unlocking his original game fighting style. The one where you slam your fists to a guy's a head & drag his head to your knee. It's so damn worth it! 67) RIVE Platform: PC A very2 self aware space shooter game. You're a guy controlling a spider mech & you're stuck in a space station. And then you have to find a way to get the hell out of there while talking to the ship AI that puts you through gauntlets of enemies to fight. And it's a damn good game. Shooting is nice, a lot of variations in traversal where one moment you're just playing a regular side scroller, and then the next you're playing some space shooter R Type stuff. And of course, a lot of cheeky references to games both old and new. They even mock microtransactions at one point! This game has a surprisingly sad ending, which then turns to be a good ending. Oh come on, first Sugar Cube and now this?? I think Steam purposefully picked these 2 games for Spring Cleaning for a reason! 68) Assassin's Creed: Unity Platform: PC Got this for free after that Notre Dame cathedral fire tragedy giveaway. It's so cool that this game's recreation of the cathedral is used to reconstruct the damaged part of the building, even though the game is about assassinating people left and right & parts of the game have you kill a bunch of people INSIDE THE CATHEDRAL. But to be fair, the people in the game desecrate the building with their killings, so it's pretty much God's retribution. Even Jesus was angry and destroy stuff when a temple was used as a marketplace. As for the game itself, MY GOD. What a damn mess. It's certainly ambitious I give the game that. France is so damn big, that it's the single biggest map in the history of the series, and it has so many things to do. That is until the future Origins & Odyssey game takes the crown. Love the parts where you actually go to a time jump to see Paris in different time periods, like World War 2, the medieval time and the part with the statue of Liberty being still under construction. Those are freaking awesome. Too bad that the game is filled with SO MANY FREAKING GLITCHES. I see an execution with a guillotine, and then I see the guy getting beheaded running away HEADLESS. I see a cutscene with Napoleon becoming really awkward because instead of me and him talking alone like the game intended, citizens left and right all of a sudden just barge in and talk regular npc dialogues while me and Napoleon are talking. And I see so many times where I assassinate a guy, only to have the guy doing ragdoll break dancing because his weapons merge with him on the floor. And these And these are just some things that happen out of 20+ glitches I saw. Just..... wowwwwwww. I was laughing so much seeing these things. Also the game's combat itself is...... I don't understand why they made it like this. It certainly makes the game more challenging since now you're forced to do one on one battles & the fights are like proper swordfights, but it just makes combat less fun & very cumbersome, especially when the speed of your attacks are slower than the previous assassins in the series. And you're supposed to be one of the assassin in the series that actually use stealth to kill targets & be really quick on his feet, so why is the attack speed in this game so freaking slow?? It's a good thing that Assassin's Creed Syndicate immediately go back to making you able to kill a lot of dudes at once & up the combat speed. Lastly, it's such a missed opportunity to have Elise, one of the best girl in Assassin's Creed who actually is more badass than the main character, relegated to being just an npc. She should be a dual playable main character of this game! I like Arno & her being together because they're perfect for each other. I think that's why Syndicate had 2 main characters, as a way for Ubisoft to say "here's what Unity should have been like in the first place." Still, as messy and glitchy as this game is, it's actually quite a nice look back at Assassin's Creed before Origins change the entire series. At least this game is actually made with a goal in mind & that goal is accomplished, with glitches of course. Certainly much better than what EA & Konami did with their Anthem, Mass Effect Andromeda & that zombie game which is a fucking travesty. I'm curious to see what the next Assassin's Creed will be like & when it will FINALLY merge with Watch Dogs to finish Juno's storyline once and for all. 69) Skylanders: Ring of Heroes Platform: iPhone Fun fact: I played this game as a part of my work helping Comcast market it in Australia back in December. And surprisingly, it's a fun ass game. WAYYY better than the console games because this game actually has challenge & not just a game to make kids buy toys to get characters! If you have played one of those turn based iPhone games where you open loot boxes to get character shards to get tiered characters, then you're familiar with this game. The difference is unlike most of those games which are bullshit and forces you to pay real money, this game actually did it right & make it fair so that you can get the best characters as long as you keep playing & opening lootboxes. Like Sdorica, another excellent iPhone game which I played & finished. The plot of this game is, well, a pretty normal fantasy adventure where you play as a normal kid who got sucked into another dimension, and in this other dimension you can control various creatures named "Skylanders" and fight an evil bald guy named Kaos with his minions. You beat him & in the end you return to your family. The end! And that's pretty much the plot of a lot of the console Skylanders game. At least this one is better than all of them, even though the Spyro used in this game is pretty much the messed up Spyro and not the beloved one from the original & the reignited trilogy. XD
  16. 59) Guilty Gear XRD -REVELATOR- Platform: PC Finally, I returned to Guilty Gear after playing SIGN in 2015. This is the sequel, or more accurately an expansion pack to that game. It continues the story of that game & finally answers the big mystery of who That Man is, accompanied by many more beautifully animated cell shaded cutscenes in the story mode, which is pretty much a 4 hour anime film. And that's AWESOME! I bought this game specifically because I went to the big fighting game tournament in Melbourne last week called BAM11. I went there last year for Dragon Ball, and returned again this year with much better result which I'm happy with, but that's a story for another time. I saw one of my mates playing Guilty Gear Revelator, and I bought the game after the event. Now last time I played SIGN, I thought I knew everything about that game because I played the tutorial and go from there, but NO. I saw crazy shits happening with my friend that I have no idea WTF is going on. Actually the entire game mechanics of the game are not in tutorial mode, but actually in a menu called "mission mode" which contains ALL the real game mechanics you need to know to play the game. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT??? But after I learn the mechanics, the game becomes simpler & make more sense. 60) Nidhogg Platform: PC It's that really fast paced fencing game where the goal is to reach either the far left or the far right of the map in a particular stage while trying to get past the other player through either killing them or getting right past them. Still simple & very fun to play, except when you have to play a single match for more than 10 minutes because the other guy just keep getting back and forth with you. Which is what happened to me! During the BAM11 tournament, there's also a side PC gaming tournament to take part in, and the particular game they had was Nidhogg. So I entered it & played matches until I battle in the grand final. I can beat the first 3 opponents fine in 40 seconds because I slip past them, but the man in grand final? HEELLLLL NO. We had to do 5 matches that takes 7 freaking minutes each, stabbing each other & going back and forth over and over and over and over again until I finally get through the defense of that guy & won the tournament. THANK. GOD. Not even Dragonball Figher Z took that damn long! 61) RAGE 2 Platform: PC Why is this game rated so low on Steam? This game's pretty good! Remember the first RAGE game which has you going place to place in a post apocalypse shooting dudes, meeting NPCS for a moment and then move on to the next place and meeting even more NPCS until you beat the game and the game ends in such a bullshit cliffhanger? Thank God this sequel isn't like that. In fact this game is pretty much RAGE if the vehicle and open world travel section is like Mad Max the game from 2015, the shooting is as fast paced as DOOM minus the finisher & you actually have stuff like ground slam attacks, super dash, double jump and weapon upgrades. Oh, and the NPCs you meet are not just a meet them once and never see them for the rest of the game again like the first game. Quite simply, it's a GIGANTIC improvement over the first game. The trailer is kind of misleading though. You'd think that from the trailer this game is all jokes with no seriousness similar to Sunset Overdrive or Borderlands, but it's actually 1/3 jokes and 2/3 serious since the plot is all about taking down the villain from the first game after he brought destruction to your home, and other NPCs joining in to help you take him down which is, quite bizarre. The one thing in this game I don't like: extracting blue crystals from walls & meteors. These things are called feltrites and they are the key to upgrading your weapons & special abilities. To extract them, you have to aim at them and press the focus button, which is CTRL on the keyboard and L1 on PS4. This doesn't seem so bad if it's on building walls, but on meteorites? You have to aim at EACH crystals and extract them one by one, and each of these meteorites have 20 of them. WHY? Why can't you just hold down the focus button once & have them all be extracted in an instant? Why does it have to be manual labor??? I DON'T UNDERSTAND! 62) A Normal Lost Phone Platform: PC It's another one of those games where you find a handphone & find out what happens to the owner of the phone. This one though deals with someone who is quite normal, at least normal in comparison to other games like Sara is Missing or Simulacra where weird shit happens. I like it, though it's kind of obvious that the game is being cheeky with the point they want to get across. Like at the very end of the game once you uncovered everything about the game, all of a sudden you see an email sent by the owner of the phone to their friend & the friend is all like "don't worry that you lost your phone, because I'm sure the one who saw your phone will go to options and erase the data on your phone". It's the most obvious thing ever for a game to say "thank you for playing. Press erase NOW". Which makes me wonder: what if the person who saw the phone to begin with is their mom/dad/family member/friends? That'll be so damn awkward & they'll be so in deep deep shit!
  17. Well, they're of course really good soundtracks. And it's your list so good on you for sharing your favorite songs! In the end though making just a top 5 is a disservice to music in gaming. We can't just pinpoint 5 game soundtracks since thousands of games have amazing music created by wonderfully talented musicians that bring each game to life. A lot of the unknown small/obscure ones especially are in this specific thread which you can check out. But if you're curious about which soundtracks are my personal favorites, here are just 6 of hundreds that I can think off: Undertale. So much so that I actually made a mix with Through the Fire and Flames Nier Automata. Brilliant soundtrack for that one & every song tells their own story which accompanies the game so damn well Shadow of the Colossus. Battling gigantic monsters with epic orchestral songs makes climbing them so damn goooooodddd. Jotun. Perfect songs to accompany this Viking road to Valhalla Furi. What's cool is that this is a boss rush game & every single bosses have their own theme which gets even more intense each time you take out their health bars And Mighty Switch Force 2. Because it's so funky it's awesome! This doesn't mean that these 6 are a top 6 for me. Hell naw. If I have to make a personal favorite soundtrack list, that list will be a 100 list where every songs are in no particular order because there's so many amazing soundtracks! Rightyo, moving on to the next song I just discovered: There's a pretty damn slick "one hit you're dead" action game called Katana Zero that was released recently, and what's cool about this game is that before a mission, the main character actually puts on his music player & play these kickass songs while planning his assassinations. He has swag yo It's annoying that this game ends on such a big cliffhanger. ARRRGHH, I WANT MORE OF THIS GAME, MORE!!!
  18. 55) MK11 Platform: PC Urrrrghhhhh. I still haven't gotten Sonya's MK1 costume. One day, ONE DAY I WILL GET IT! 56) Burning Daylight Platform: PC A short free game that's apparently made by 12 students in VIA University College, which is based in Denmark. It's like INSIDE or Black the Fall in that it's about a guy that escapes from a dystopian setting, only in this game it's less about fighting governments but more about getting out of a world controlled by an AI of sorts. It's quite cool, except that this game has a lot of male dicks uncensored everywhere, and a couple of scenes where people XXX each other. I don't think this is a part of their university assignment. 57) Days Gone Platform: PS4 This game is another example of not believing reviewers, especially IGN & Gamespot who gave this game 6.5 & 5 which is just WAAAY too low. When I first saw this game in 2016's E3, I didn't think it's anything mindblowing. I like that this game is made by the creators of Syphon Filter and..... Bubsy 3D............. ahem............. Those hundreds of zombie swarms are cool but I don't think this game is gonna be a GOTY or something like that, so I had my expectation on a reasonable "this could be a fun game, so I'll just see what it is." Then I played this game, completing almost every quests the game had & getting all the PS4 trophies. This game, is pretty damn awesome! With performance issues of course which is well covered on youtube, but the issues has been reduced with patches that gets regularly released. You play as biker named Deacon St. John played by Starkiller himself Sam Witwer that had lived through a zombie, ahem I mean "Freakers" apocalypse that's been going on for 2 years. This is one poor bastard. I mean he sent his injured wife on a helicopter to escape the zombies, but the helicopter landed on a place that's having a zombie outbreak. So for 2 years this poor guy had been mourning her ever since while he help other survivors & his biker best friend Boozer. As the game progresses, you get to meet the people he knew, found out his really sweet relationship with his wife in the past, his bro moments with Boozer & him helping other survivors with their various issues, which in turn make him a better man. These are all made better with how damn good the acting are across the board for everyone. There's also a couple of good twists & turns which I can't say anything about because it's awesome, but I will say this: just when you think you have seen all the open world, MORE opens up. The game itself is pretty much what happens if you have Last of Us follow the open world gameplay of Ubisoft's open world game, that being filled with object collection, outpost takeover, hostage rescue & sneaking minigames, but with Dead Rising thrown in a bit with sidequests involving eliminating zombie hordes in different parts of the map, which are freaking scary as hell the first time you encounter these guys. You have outposts that belongs to NPCs each with their own weapon & motorcycle upgrades, and the more you do their quests, the higher their trust levels are & the more badass equipment you can buy for yourself which definitely will definitely help you with zombie horde huntings, especially once you unlock the LMGs & ammo upgrades. This is actually my favorite thing about this game: progression. There are National Emergency Response Organization (NERO) checkpoints + research stations you can go to which will give you intel on the zombies & an injector which you can use to level up either your health, stamina or your focus/gun slow mo ability meters, which makes collecting them anyway you can really rewarding. You can level yourself up till level 45 & each time you level up, you can invest points to Deacon's 3 skill trees: melee, guns & survivalist skills. These skills are really damn good & by the later parts of the games, you will transform your character into a maxed out Frank West with all the extremely useful skills at your disposal. I suggest getting the melee skill "repair weapons", the gun skill that lets you improve your gun aim + focus mode to slow time for better aim, and "get more meat + get more herb" survival skills, because these are early unlocks & will help you tons in the game. I was confused at first with Deacon because in this game, everytime you're alone or listen to radio chatters, Deacon will always say something witty about it, and sometimes the way he talks is like a person with PTSD because he sounds so angry & like he wants to kill people. And as it turns out through character interactions, before he became a biker, he was actually a US soldier in Afghanistan. That's pretty cool & explains why he sounds like he's in a warzone, because he probably had PTSD from all the shit he went through back then. Which makes him even more of a poor bastard to deal with all of this stuff. Oh yes, and you also learn the background of the zombies and how they're created which is awesome, because it looks like the one which causes it all is Syphon Filter. Yes, Syphon Filter. Which means this game is actually a Syphon Filter sequel/ elseworld story in disguise....... WHAT A TWIST! OK2, that's actually an Easter Egg & it probably isn't the cause of the zombie outbreak, but it's still possible! I can't wait for the sequel to find out more! 58) Sunset Overdrive Platform: PC What a weird feeling to play a game that was supposed to be one of Xbox One's exclusives on PC, and it basically is what happens if Jet Set Radio & Rachet and Clank had a baby and decided to make that baby be as fourth wall breaking & punk rock as possible. AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL! So good in fact that the maneuvering of this game is put into the PS4 Spiderman last year. This is basically a game where you can go fucking bananas & have fun fighting against zombies ahem I mean people who drank too many poisonous soft drink and becomes a monster afterwards. The only thing I don't like about this game is simply the annoying 80% of the soundtrack which are just these generic punk rock songs that plays over and over again. 20% of the songs are actually good and are story specific songs, but there's not enough of them! Luckily I solve this by muting the music & playing kickass songs from my own custom soundtrack so it's all good! Now that Imsomniac is done with Spiderman, I wonder if they will make a Sunset Overdrive 2, or they'll just make the next Marvel Game Universe continuation from Spiderman. Either way, I'm down for whatever they're making next!
  19. It's Mortal Kombat again! But instead of me being happy that this game plays beautifully or that the plot is awesome, I can't do so knowing that this game's rewards system uses one of the random loot drops from the mobile games. Urrgh. I was so looking forward to this game because of how awesome the trailers leading to this game are. The plot of the game is after MKX. Shinnok has been dethrowned, Raiden becomes Dark Raiden again, and the game starts with him leading an assault alongside Cassie + Sonya + Special forces to destroy Evil Revenant Liu Kang + his friends once and for all. Buuut a new villain named Kronika emerges & take control of time, so now past and present are combined for the sake of a "new and balanced timeline" as she said. So now the battle to stop her begins. Fun fact: there was a mysterious woman in Jade's MK9 ladder ending which everyone, including me, assumed was Kronika Until a recent tweet from the MKX's comic book writer that reveals the woman is actually Jade's mom and she's in Jade's ladder ending So there you go, it is what it is! Luckily her inclusion to the story is actually well done & it answers several questions of previous MK games, like were the arcade ladder endings of the previous games just non-canon, or did they indeed happen? Turns out Kronika is the one who allows those endings to be made to create a perfect timeline where the victor gets their endings realized. And then she resets time again so that everyone gets their endings. So she pretty much has been manipulating time for millions of years. Which is probably the most boring thing to experience. Eh, we get a great story out of it here though. Gameplay of MK11 is like MKX, but without the 3 special bars. Now you have 2 defense & 2 offense bars to do things like amplifying attacks or use one of those moves where you interact with the background. You can also no longer run so now you can only dash forward or backward. It definitely feels bizarre if you just played MKX again recently, but you can get used to the change pretty quickly. The game offers great tutorials about these changes & character specific challenges to get you ready to play your chosen favorites. Another thing that's different now is that you no longer have to pick 3 different variations, instead you can pick 3 or 2 different moves for your characters in the customization option. You can equip max of 3 moves for each character because only 3 skill slots are available to use. Some moves require 2 slots though. Mix and match moves however you want & create your own custom character for each of your favorite combatants is the name of the game here. Kind of like Injustice 2 in that you can equip your characters with gears that has their own modifier slots. Unfortunately, this is where the game's biggest flaw is. You see, to get costumes, accessories or even modification gems in this game requires you to do challenges in the "Tower of Time" which I'll get to later, do AI challenges where you can challenge other player's AIs like those mobile games player battles, or go to the Krypt and open chests. Now the Krypt itself is freaking awesome. It's like a simplified PS4 God of War where exploration is more prominent with the occasional puzzles to solve & deathtraps to avoid, and there's even a few enemies you can kill with your hammer, though they die in only 1 hit so don't expect to do combos. So many areas to see & you even get special items that allows you to go to places you can't enter before like the Krypt in MKX. This should have been awesome, but unfortunately, THE KRYPT CHESTS HAVE FUCKING RANDOM ITEMS! That's right, it's no longer like MKX or previous Krypts where you can go online to find the location for a specific costume/ unlocks that you want. 90% of the chests all have freaking random items & only 10% are not! Joe even made a video about how fucking ridiculous it all is! The thing with this though is that it's fucking bizarre how this game implements this random loot things. To get currency to open the boxes, you can't use microtransaction. All you can buy with microtransaction in this game are "time crystals" which gives you specific costumes/fatalities/brutalities in the game's main menu, so there's no such thing as buying currency to get all the boxes in Krypt faster than everyone else, which is awesome. BUT WHY DO YOU MAKE EVERYTHING FUCKING RANDOM AND HARD AS HELL TO GET MONEY TO OPEN THESE CHESTS?? The main way to get these currencies is to play matches, or go to the Towers of Time which is basically Injustice 2's Multiverse mode or MKX's Living Towes which has random challenges for you to complete. Too bad these Towers of Time are fucking ridiculously hard because there's always some bullshit modifiers that makes them harder than it actually is. Some towers can have assist characters showing up & hitting you, some towers have the enemy with 10x more health than you + laser deathtrap which reduces your health if you stand close to it, some towers have enemies that make the screen pitch black so you can't see anything, some towers have ALL of those combined! And oh, if you think you can use modifier gems on your characters to give them extra perks, tough luck because to unlock the gem slots, you have to play that particular character until the gear levels up. And you have to get lucky and get that specific gem for your character because the gems are character specific. The worst part is that even though you unlock gears, you don't get special attributes to help you during these Towers of Time. You don't get more health, you don't get more damage, maybe if you're extra lucky you can get gems that boost your health and damage, but most of the time you'll get something dumb like "get 8% more currency if you do a brutality". WHYY????? In fact it is so frustrating, that the only way to beat these towers easily is if you turn on the AI mode before you begin the fight so that the AI will fight for you. Essentially, the game plays itself. Which is thankfully an option but WHY DO I HAVE TO DO THIS SHIT??? I've probably spent 1 million coins to open chests in this game, and I STILL can't get the MK1 Sonya costume that I want. It's good that Netherealm Studios is currently increasing the number of rewards so you can get more currencies and they're giving free amount of currencies to compensate for it, but if the chests are all still freaking random, then there is just no point to it. Fuck. This. Shit. I give this game my rating of "play the game for the story & base gameplay, wait for patch 2000 to have all those currencies with you so you can maybe unlock all chests & get the costumes you want by luck". AKA, wait for sale, or if you have a local fighting game scene, just play this game there with all the other people there so you don't have to pay & get frustrated with the loots. Or buy the game now, but just enjoy it for the great fighting, beware of the loots & don't expect much from them. Such a damn shame that free mobile phone economy is what brings this game's potential so far down, and I'm so sure that Warner Brothers is the one that forces this into this game, same with their previous games Injustice 2 & fucking Shadow of War. Oh I dread the moment that future games will have even worse versions of these things!
  20. He didn't review that one, but he did review GOTG 2.
  21. This is going to be the shortest review I have ever done It takes place after Infinity War & it's the REAL culmination of all the MCU films leading up to this point. Still funny, still have sad heartwrenching moments, and it has so many brilliant battles + epic moments that makes the fangirls in my theater squee so loudly every 5 minutes and it makes the battle in Infinity War looks so lame in comparison. Oh yeah, and Captain Marvel is actually not in the screen much as many had feared. Her role is perfect & she doesn't overstay her welcome. There is a Stan Lee cameo, but it's so well hidden that I didn't even realize it's him until the end of the film. It happened in the middle of the film that after the film was finished I was like "wait, was that guy in the middle of the film that one time him?? I thought he's nowhere in the film!" Also, don't bother waiting till the end credits because there is no end credits scene at all. None. Zero. Except for a sound of clanking at the end which could be anything really. Sounds like someone's hammering some metal. That's all I can say. I am NOT saying anything more because what happens in this film are not spoiled at all in the trailers and I will make it stay that way. The trailer only shows 5% of the entire film. All I can say about this film is simply: GO FUCKING WATCH IT NOW & EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC THAT WILL NEVER BE REPLICATED EVER AGAIN. I give this film my rating of "A once in a lifetime experience in cinema. So much so that you will watch this film over and over and over again" with a badass seal of approval. Wait actually, because this film is such an amazing time & nothing in the future will top this until maybe many2 years later, I'm giving this film 3 seals. It's that. Freaking. Brilliant. 20 OUT OF 10. SO GOOD THAT IT BROKE THE SCALES. When this film is available on my cable TV, I will sure as hell record it and watch this film over and over and over again!
  22. I haven’t seen that film and it’s not that big a deal since that film is a prequel story. All you need to know is that she’s not in Endgame much & doesn’t affect the plot a lot, but when she comes in, it’s awesome.
  23. Remember the old days where there's flash games that you can play on your internet browser and the internet is so slow that you have to wait 1 hour for the game to load? Well it's still going now but it's a lot faster to load and less popular than it was in the past after the various indie games on Steam and iPhone games are introduced. No matter, let us show the people on the forum that's not familiar with this the good flash games and show them that there are flash games that are as good as iPhone, indie and console games! I'll start with this one I personally enjoy a lot: Last Stand. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/375622 It's a defence game where you have to survive zombie onslaughts. At first you're alone and your weapon is weak, but later you'll get various weapons and people to join in and waste even more zombies. Fun as hell and gory.
  24. 50) It is Highnoon Platform: iPhone An old west arcade esque shooter game where in each stages you're given a wanted poster of characters for you to shoot. If you shoot the right person, you get score. Wrong person, you lose a life. It's pretty fun & reminds me of this old childhood game I played called Lethal Enforcers 2 Which now that I think about it, makes no sense. Why is the first Lethal Enforcers in modern time while the second is in the old west?? Why not just make it a completely different name like "Highnoon Rising" or something like that? 51) Kaiju Rush Platform: iPhone Interesting game where you play, hmmm, you know those games where it's like bowling because you set up the power & direction of a ball before you launch it, and then the goal of the game is to get the most distance as you can? That's this game. Only you control how far a Kaiju can go forward & can make them bounce on the ground to destroy buildings & get to bounce pads to get more distance. It's quite fun 52) Fight'N Rage Platform: PC A throwback to classic beat em ups, most specifically Streets of Rage & it even has a MR X lookalike final boss with a machine gun & throne room! Difference is in this game the plot is, surprisingly brutal. Basically a bunch of animal mutants take over the world & it's all Fist of the Northstar ish where you play as one of 3 characters to beat the shit out of everyone you can. And all of the characters in this game have moves straight out of Street Fighter. There's moves from Dudley, Adon, Ryu, Chun Li, Vega, Zangief, the list goes on. It's fun just guessing which character moves this game will have. The hitting for this game is just, muah, really butter smooth. Punching enemies feels really damn good & pulling off dozens of combos is immensely satisfying. You can even do a parry like in Street Fighter 3 to block attacks. Even more satisfying is the fact that you can do special moves with each character by pressing down up attack which varies upon characters. The best part about this game is the unlockables you can get. Sooo many unlockables, and a lot of ending variations depending on if you play with individual characters, mix of 2 or all 3, and paths you take so it's pretty much like that Streets of Rage remake game years ago. I wanna play this game again for sure & put on my custom Streets of Rage remake soundtrack! 53) Black the Fall Platform: PC Not to be confused with the robot game the Fall. This game is a platformer that plays a lot like Inside in that you're one out of hundreds of poor mind subjugated citizens in some country & you have to escape, but it takes place in a futuristic setting where Russia takes over the world & they have mechs + mind control devices. And along the way you can befriend a really damn durable mini robot dog to help you in your puzzle solving & platforming sections. You will definitely die a lot trying to figure out how to proceed in each levels because this game has a lot of instant death traps, which comes with the territory. Such a wasted opportunity with the ending though. Basically, you take control of a giant mech which looks like this. Sounds cool right? Only you don't fire its weapons. All you do with the thing is ram a damn wall, and then end credits. OH COME ON, why can't I use the weaponry & plough through other mechs + enemies as revenge for how many deaths I have to endure before?? Even Inside kind of make me go on a rampage at the end! 54) One Finger Death Punch 2 Platform: PC AT LAST. THE LEGENDARY GAME HAS RETURNED IN FULL FORCE!! Better, bigger, more skills to use, more mission varieties, and best of all, still played using the simple and perfect click left or right when the enemy gets close gameplay of the first game. 11 hours of me playing every single stage & completing everything with 5 stars, 11 hours of fun as hell time. And surprisingly, it ends on what I can say is one of the best ways of saying "thank you for playing" in a game. Well done dev, you have made me happy with the first game, and now you made me happy again!
  25. The previous trailers are pretty good, if a bit awkward with the song choices. But this? Best trailer of them all. That MK theme remix is Godlike. I want this game so badly! Shame that Cyrax & Sektor will be the same case as Rain Baraka in MKX in that they can't be played unless through a mod. But THIS TRAILER IS FUCKING HYPE!
