  1. 28) Granblue Fantasy Versus Platform: PS4 The next fighting game from Arc System Works based on a very popular mobile game in Japan. Really fun to play, despite its small roster size. Wonder if Fate will have their next fighting game one of these days after their PSP game years ago considering that Fate Grand Order is a huge thing now. Maybe a Melty Blood spiritual successor? 29) Carcassonne Platform: PC This is based on an existing board game of the same name, and the goal of this game is to be the king with the most property owned. You do this by placing randmized tiles & owning either a land, road or a field which will then be expanded upon if you choose. By the end of the game it'll look something like this This game is freaking hard, but I finally got the hang of it & won handily, but not before losing so many times because the CPU actually place their property on a field and that actually covers 60% of the entire land which fucked me over URGHHHHH 30) Ticket to Ride Platform: PC Another game based on an existing board game. This time it's about building the best railway track on a board filled with different trail lines, each with different colors. You'll have to get stacks of cards from a row of cards, 2 cards per person unless you pick a Joker rainbow cards but you'll be fine if you pick one of the randomized card deck. Also before the game starts, you're given a side objective to get a trainline from specific cities to connect to another. If you managed to make that train line, you'll get extra points in the end of the game. If not, points deducted. It's quite a fun game, and it feels awesome if you manage to make trainlines that goes all over the place from one city to the edge. Now, with the existence of the game creation tool Dreams on PS4, I got to play SO MANY THINGS. Mostly just short 2- 3 minutes tech demos. But some of the games are SO good & astonishingly complete, that these games deserve to be mentioned here. So next time I complete games from Dreams that I found to be really special & beyond what I expected, I will put them here on a special section in the Platform part so you guys can check them out. Best of all, you just have to have Dreams and everything is free! 31) Art's Dream Platform: PS4: Dreams made game (Officially made game by Media Molecule, the dev behind Dreams) This game is about a double bass player named Art who just left his band due to personal reasons, and the whole game is a multi-genre mashup of point & click, platforming adventure, music video viewing, and SO many more. It is a freaking thrill ride from beginning to the end, and with a bunch of awesome songs to listen as well. Here's just the first parts of this awesome game. 32) The Pilgrim Platform: PS4: Dreams made game (community-made, specifically by narvikgutten & Majoneskongen) This is the beginning of where I can see what the creative people using Dreams are capable of. This is a complete game you can play where you're a pilgrim going on an adventure to search for treasures + artifacts, while slaying monsters along the way. It's crazy how many variety this thing has. At first it's just platforming. Then you have a lighting bolt attack to defend yourself from monsters, and the next you're playing a top down shooter, it's awesome. And it has multiple endings too depending on which path you want to take at the end. Well done dudes! Can't wait to play the next games you came up with! 33) The Outer Depths Platform: PS4: Dreams made game (community-made, specifically by Greatscott2204) This game...... is freaking awesome. And I am shocked at how many contents this game is. It's a horror game inspired by Alien Isolation where you're a part of a mining crew on planet Titan, but then one day there's monsters attacking the whole base, and so you have to try and survive. This right here is the demo for this game. This game definitely takes inspiration from Alien Isolation, because most of the monsters in this game will kill you in 1 hit when they see you, and they react to how loud you are, and they can come out of nowhere without a clear pattern. Especially the tall one with just mouths on its head. There are cool things here like how you have to hack panels by using a hack tool, and later on you have to distract monsters in a security room to different parts of a base to let a friend pass through them, all the while staying silent because there's a monster right next to you. There's just so many stuff this guy made. At the moment this guy made chapter 1 till 5 of the game, each one getting more difficult & spookier, and you actually get a weapon on the later chapters + medkits. I spent 2+ hours playing this game until chapter 5, and there's going to be more chapters coming from this guy. He has made a much better horror game than most of those short games played by Markiplier on his channel. I can't wait for the next chapter & finish the journey!
  2. This..... is where gaming history will change. This game/ media creation tool has changed the game plan of game development & made 90% of unfinished generic Steam Early Access games to shame. I have been eyeing on this for a while now ever since I saw a couple of trailers & see so many stuff in them. Hell, look at this trailer just to see how insanely diverse this thing is: Dreams is the next thing made by the same people as Little Big Planet 1 & 2 + Tearaway. Now in Little Big Planet you are allowed to make stuff, but those are mostly limited to 2D games. This on the other hand is a full on creation tool where you can just get creative & make anything that you want. Want to make an fps, puzzle game, open world game, a short movie, a long 1 hour movie, remake an old PS1 game or walking simulators? Ohoho you bet your ass you can do those things at once here, and it's all only limited by your own imagination. It starts by letting you choose your avatar in the form of a cute Imp creature. And then from here on you can use the motion sensor on your PS4 controller to move it around & interact with things just as you see fit. It takes getting used to, but the tutorial makes things simple to understand. For moving the imp & basic stuff that is. For creating your own games + short animation though? OHOHOHO, now THAT's like school. You can if you want to. The other best part about this is that you can play user created stuff, and WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. I mean...... what do you get when you have a game creation tool that was already out for a while as a beta, and it's recently released? You get HUNDREDS of stuff to try out. To be expected, most are pretty simple but fun and more like tech demos for things to come should they decide to make their full games. Like this one for example which is a demonstration of the stuff created by this one guy which is going to get updated into an actual game. And this one which is also from the same guy which is a demo for an open world survival game similar to Rust. And this one which is just showing food, but it looks soooo goooood but some of them? HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. I spend 30 minutes, and even more than 1 hour from playing these individual games. These people are dedicated to the max that they practically just made a much more complete Steam Early Access game, a couple even have a complete game for that matter, and I don't have to pay extra cost to play them. It's all free stuff & I actually want to give these guys my cash after the cool shit that they made. I cannot imagine what their games would be like when they completed everything 100% and have the content be more than your usual 5+ hour games! And this is all thanks to youtubers that lets me know which games I should play like this guy. And the best part? MORE ARE COMING! These mad bastards will definitely release a lot of full games which are going to be better than 50% of games out right now, and I cannot freaking wait to let you people know about them! Which I will in the Games beaten by the AJSA section. But of course there's official games included in this made by the dev team because hey, they're a game dev so they have to show the world what kind of things are possible to make in this toolkit. They have couple of neat little minigames to showcase as a demonstration into how diverse this creation tool can be. But they also have a main game which I can definitely say is pretty freaking cool, and it's called Art's Dream This is about a guy named Art who is a double bass player who left his band for his own selfish reason, and the game is mostly about him regretting his selfish action in his head, and it's presented by him dreaming about his childhood toys coming to life & battling this giant crow demon named Thornbeak. It's a nice story of redemption & finding a way to be more positive about himself while reconciling with his band members, and it's a nice story to get through. Mainly because this game actually have several game genres put into 1. When you're playing in the real world, it's a point and click adventure mode where you investigate objects to find hidden secrets that you can use for your own creation in the creation tool later on while also having you pick up stuff & give to the right people to proceed to the next stage, while also listening to a musical from this blue skinned guy that keeps on changing jobs for some reason. In the dream world, you play a platformer game with Art's toys Frances + Foxy, and you can switch between the two of them to progress the game when it's required. And THEN there's robots to use later with their own abilities for platforming. Here's the playthrough of the first few minutes. It gets crazier. WAAAYYY crazier. And that's AWESOME! This game alone is but a glimpse of the absolutely amazing potential of what kind of games can be made with this game engine, and it succeeded with flying colors. I am also down for the next game that's going to be made if the story continues, and the best thing is if it indeed gets released, the dev will probably release it as a free update, or at least I hope so. I know what you guys are thinking though. You might be thinking "wow, so you can just play these many games if you own Dreams? Doesn't that mean I have to wait for the games to download which will take hours to wait?" IT'S ALL IN AN INSTANT! You can just play the games right away! The only download or storage needed is just to start Dreams, and then afterward? It's all ocean sailing bitch! And there you go. Dreams is like a giant ocean, and we the people are the fishermen. We can do anything we want with it, and it's limited to our own imagination. This is why I'm just going to not say my usual way of rating and just say "go get Dreams if you want to be a part of gaming history, and enjoy the endless possibilities that the community will create now & the future.". With 2 badass seals of approval. One for being an awesome place to play games, and the other for giving the opportunity to make magic happen. I cannot freaking wait to try even more stuff people put out. I am going to browse the shit out of everything I can find to infinity and beyond! And who knows? Like the past with Net Yaroze, the next game dev God will be born from this thing!
  3. AT LAST, the gaming drought is over, and I finally play a new game! This is the next game from Arc System Works, the same dev of Guilty Gear, Blazblue & Dragonball FighterZ, and it's a fighting game / action rpg based on the popular Japan mobile game Granblue Fantasy. I actually played the mobile game through the browser because you apparently can, which is pretty cool http://game.granbluefantasy.jp/#top So basically, the game starts with you, either a woman or a guy with a little red dragon companion, helping a blue haired girl that's chased by soldiers because she's a superpowered woman who can summon dangerous beasts. So you & a woman from the enemy army decided to go on an advernture afterwards, recruiting other adventurers & flying a ship through the game world which consists of sky islands. It's kind of like One Piece, but in the sky. And instead of the gum gum fruits, you have Final Fantasy esque summons that can assist you in battle which are called primals based on various mythologies, and there's a couple of races in play, and even angels. And a grand adventure awaits you. This fighting game takes place WAAAY deeper into the story of the mobile game after meeting many2 story characters which I haven't got that far yet. The story's a lot simpler: one of the main villains from the mobile game unleashes dark crystals upon the world that warped people to become hate filled, including many of your companions, and so you have to fix it & defeat the villain to save the world. Pretty basic stuff. It's serviceable & it introduces new players to the world's settings, but it definitely is made for the fans of this game because there are many references to the mobile game in each character's backstory & movesets. If I have to describe how this game is played, it's like if Street Fighter have the same fun gameplay as Under Night/ Guilty Gear, make the movelist simple to use & have them run on cooldown meter like the mobile game, and be very pretty. Cooldown for example means have you use a hadoken & wait until the cooldown is over, and then proceed to use it again when the meter is back to normal. Thinking that a hadoken or shoryuken move is too complicated? Don't worry because you can use R1 with a direction to release the moves that you want, which is so helpful when using characters that has a movelist like Zangief or charge characters like Guile. It deals less damage, but it's preferred to use the simple buttons to release combos. It takes getting used to, but it works. And it's a lot of fun when you can do combos like this The game has 2 main modes. The first is your typical arcade mode, and the other is the action rpg mode with various missions & chapters. Most of the missions are like playing a much more fighting game esque Odin Sphere, which is awesome! Most of the missions are pretty easy because the enemies are weak by design, just like playing the mobile game. Before the battle you can equip various weapons where the menu looks like this. This is actually how the mobile game's equipment menu is like as well. So the trick is to equip a main weapon that will determine your elemental damage, and then equip the rest of the slots will other weapons to further increase your HP and attack power. You gain these weapons by completing missions & getting weapons through the equipment raffles, aka the gachas which is how you gain new characters in the mobile game but it's simplified here, and just buying weapons from the store. How you decide what equipment suits you best is up to you. The game's action rpg mode is a lot of fun, albeit repetitive because well, it's just like playing the mobile game so you're expected to mow down weak enemies. You can recruit different characters by fighting them out of their brainwashed state because they're infected by the hate plague, and this plays mostly like fighting in the arcade mode, but the enemies have a larger healthbar & they have access to "overdrive" mode which temporarily powers them up. This mechanic btw is also in the mobile game, and it's implemented here pretty well. But the best part about this mode are the gigantic bosses you get to fight against, and these guys are a lot of fun to beat. Here's just an example of the early boss And it gets even better later on where the bosses are even more challenging, and with sweet songs playing in the background that gets more epic when you manage to get through their first phases. Kind of like Metal Gear Revengeance. After you beat the rpg mode, you unlock even harder difficulty which makes the enemies tougher, so you can play the mode all over again if you want to have more challenges. There are a couple of things that this game could've done better. The first one is the loading screen. For some reason, playing the rpg mode & going through different menus doesn't happen quickly. Instead everytime you want to customize your character or choose a mission, or even progress to the next part of a mission, the game always go to a loading screen for 15 seconds which will get annoying often. Which is why I found out that the best way to reduce these loading is to pick a mission you want to do, and then customize your character there instead because the menu will load up quickly. Why isn't it like that in the normal customization screen?? The other is the character roster. At the moment, there's 11. Seems pretty small, and then you realize that apparently most of your main character's companion in the mobile game's story are here as well, but they're just npcs, which makes no sense why they're not playable right now. The mobile game has HUNDREDS of characters to recruit & use why not have more at the start?? More are coming as dlcs, but there's only 5 characters planned. And none of those guys are the main companions which are still just npcs. Maybe they're saving them for the sequel or expansion, which is just dumb. Finally, the action rpg mode is fun yes, but it can get repetitive if you're not used to playing these typical mobile games with a similar battle plan. A couple more mission variety would help it out a lot. And thinking about it, the way your recruit new characters are the same with everyone: beat the crap out of them from their brainwashed states. Why can't a couple of them just straight up help you without needing to do that? It's only a matter of time before you think to yourself "oh look, another companion. Guess I have to beat you up to recruit you!" after the first few recruits. Despite that, this game is a lot of fun both as a fighting game and as an action rpg, and it makes me play the mobile game to get accustomed to the game's VAST lore, which is pretty awesome. And this is definitely a great beginning to a new series which I'm sure will have even more characters to play as with more mission variety that makes the game a lot more robust. I give this game the rating of "so good you can't wait to see what's next in the sequel". With a badass seal of approval! Great start to 2020 indeed. Can't wait to join my local tournament for this game & see what kind of crazy combos others came up with! Side note, one of the characters in this game is Lowain, a cat man with plenty of tools & other buddies to help him out, and his ultimate attack is to summon a primal Yggdrasil, easily the most daunting character to deal with when your health is close to death. Here's how you deal with her.
  4. Ouch, to have 2 guns nailed right to your hands & forced to play a battle royale game in real life while having your girlfriend kidnapped on top of it all? Harry Potter, what the hell did you get yourself into? XD This film looks really fun though, very much a videogame movie that I would love to see. We'll see how much bodycount Daniel Radcliffe will have in this movie.
  5. We have to still be wary of them because hey, they're still EA so they can fuck things up, but right now they're better than Blizzard & Bethesda. Of course that's not saying much because they're still scum, but they haven't fall down hard to oblivion like Konami. It saddens me that those 2 companies has joined the dark side.
  6. https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order/sales Wow. Just.... wow. EA finally learned from the errors of their ways with Jedi Fallen Order, and now because this game is making so much money for them, they now decide to do the right thing and make more single player games. All the while Bethesda & Blizzard are under hot water after they fucked up with Fallout 76 & Warcraft 3 Reforged, among other things....... Is this opposite day or something??? This is what EA needs right now, and what we need right now considering that Fallen Order & the Mandalorian are the few great things about this series at the moment after that Rise of Skywalker movie which is so average it's not worth anything. From rumors the next singleplayer Star Wars game will probably be about the New Republic, or a KOTOR remake. I just want the next Fallen Order stuff so I can slice my way Sekiro Jedi Knight style again, and if possible, have a Bounty Hunter game with Boba Fett style equipments to use, and as an extra, make you able to use lightsaber and the force too. Whatever it's going to be, if it's made with the same care as Fallen Order with many lightsaber duels, I AM ALL FOR IT!
  7. 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!
  8. So Blizzard, after ALL that shit surrounding your pathetic Blizzcon & how much you kiss the Chinese government's butthole, instead of making things right, you decided to still ban those player & casters & fuck things up even further by releasing a 17 year old game as just an HD reskin, and stripping the features you promised will be in the game, AND being a complete shithead by announcing that "if you mod this game & make a new game out of it, that game belongs to us". In all my years of life, I've come across many MANY people. Lots of people are awesome, some have problems but overall they're ok, some people pretend to be nice to you while they stab you in the back, some people for some reason just don't give a shit about other people and just want to stroke their own ego, and some people just don't deserve to live. Blizzard, you're now in the stroking your own ego zone. Not as far gone as Konami, but on par with Bethesda. You know, I was originally looking forward a bit to Overwatch 2 & Diablo 4, but I am not looking forward to them anymore after this. This company needs to reprioritize itself to stop doing these stupid shits & get back on track with actually making awesome games.
  9. Goddamn, this gaming drought makes me play these old ass obscure games I got from Humble Bundle & the Epic Games Store free giveaways, which is interesting to see what these guys came up with. 23) RiME Platform: PC This was that game with the pretty island & fox where you play as a boy exploring it. But as it turns out, it's not really about that. Exploring the island is just stage 1, there are other stages that takes place inside that big white tower which involves some cool ass mind bending puzzles & explorations. Surprisingly for a puzzle-filled game, there's a bit of combat....... sort of. It's more like "grab a light orb & scream to it to get rid of dark men pestering you" more than actual combat. From the looks of the game, I thought "ok, this looks like a fun harmless exploration game with relaxing orchestra music. This should be fun." And it is fun & relaxing. Then the end of the game happened....... and now I'm sad........ Which I kind of see coming because in the stage select, the stages are named after the 5 stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Still though, WTF IS THIS?? First Horace, and now this game?? I want to feel good playing a happy game, not get sad after seeing surprisingly depressing shit! X( 24) Rising Dusk Platform: PC Ahhhh, now this game is more like it. This is..... quite an interesting take on a platformer. Remember Default Dan? Weeeeellll, this game's kind of like that, BUT thankfully you don't die by getting coins! In this game, you can take coins scattered around a stage, but there's platforms that will disappear if you collected coins of the numbered platform. So if you see a number 1 platform, the platform will disintegrate if you touch it when you have 1 coin on you. The stages have hidden items, and sometimes you either have to not collect any coin to get those items, or you have to collect a certain amount to get past the platform blocking the hidden collectible. It's quite fun! And it's pretty cute too. The game is based on Japanese ghost tales, so you'll see Japanese monsters like Kappas, umbrella ghosts, one-eyed dudes & ghosts hanging around, but thankfully you don't die if you touch them, instead they just shove you away. Well except the bosses which you have to beat. 25) City Of Brass Platform: PC Got this for free from Epic Games Store a while ago, and actually a game I've been looking forward to playing for a long time because the dev made 2 neat iPhone Time Crisis esque shooter games called EPOCH 1 & 2. This is a first person hack n slash roguelike game taking place in a City Of Brass, which basically is like Aladdin's cave, but a city. And you're stuck inside this cursed city filled with many traps & enemies that wants to kill you. Hell in one part, there's even an enemy that's pretty much Dr Who's weeping angel, but thankfully you can kill them by throwing a bomb at their face. You're going to die over and over and over again in this game if you're not aware of your surroundings. It's always rewarding though with these roguelike games as you plow through a stage that gave you so many hard times. Funnily enough, this game has 5 bosses, but the first 2 bosses are the tougher ones to beat. The other 3 are much easier to beat. I beat 1 dude by throwing a bomb once & he died in an instant, while the next one I just whip him & slice him with my sword 2 times. The final bosses are actually simple because all you do is go to a spot & whip their weakpoint, then you beat the game. After dying so many damn times from all the traps & enemies that killed you, it was worth it. 26) The End Is Nigh Platform: PC The next game from the same sadist who created Binding of Isaac & Super Meat Boy, and this game is just as frustrating as Super Meat Boy, except this time this game is more like a much fairer I Wanna Be The Guy, without cool guest game cameos. I mean..... what's the point of a game where the controls are very slick & smooth, but the game is hair frustratingly precise with platforming that you will die 1000+ times, and there's no funny things like this to make you laugh? In this game, the world ended through some nuclear bomb or something, and you're a blob guy thing named Ash who is stuck in the apocalypse with nothing but his game, which is pretty much this game but with Nintendo Gameboy colors & 8 bit music. He's live streaming the game in the beginning, which is pretty impressive that there's online in the apocalypse but oh well, and if you managed to beat it, you'll get an ending instantly. Which I can't even fathom beating in 1 flawless run because LOOK AT THIS SHIT! If you die during this game (which you will), the game will brick itself & Ash has no choice but to go out of his apartment & for some reason, find 3 parts scattered in the deep2 stages so he can make a makeshift mannequin to become his friend........ that's the goal of this game & the reason you get killed 1000+ times over and over. Why not just pick one up from the damn rubles? Fortunately, even though this game pissed me the hell off, it doesn't make me hate everything about it like Super Meat Boy, primarily because as you die over and over again, the awesome soundtrack kept me going. The songs are remixes of classical tunes. My favorite being the Hungarian Rhapsody remixes that's made famous by Tom & Jerry in one of their cartoons. This song is the first half which plays in the later stages where you climb up this high mountain full of clouds and ghosts. And at the very end of the game, there is an escape sequence, and during it the second half of the Rhapsody plays which is just fucking awesome. Surprisingly, collecting hidden items, which in this game means collecting tumors for yourself (ewwww) in this game actually will benefit you in the final stages because those tumors acts as extra lives as you die over and over and over and over again. And typical of this guy's game, you will get other endings & secret areas if you explore the world & find secret items. I am not collecting them all because I am not a masochist thank you very much! 27) The Bridge Platform: PC A puzzle game where you shift gravity to make objects fall into the right places so you can pass through. It's a trippy game. I think your main character is supposed to be an inventor based on what little background information this game provides & the whole puzzles are about him discovering the next breakthrough. Then it's all just a dream he has before he wakes up........... that was quite anticlimactic. And after you beat the game, you can play the entire game again but mirrored so everything is the other way. I ain't doing that again!
  10. 21) Warriors Orochi 4 Platform: PS4 I used to play Dynasty Warriors + Samurai Warriors games on PS2 all the time. And then I just stopped since in the end the sequels are just the same game with more characters anyway, and because I found a much better alternative that is Sengoku Basara. Then last year I won Warriors Orochi 4 from a gaming tournament after I won at Dragonball Fighter Z, so this is as good time as any to jump back to this series and see how much more characters Koei added. And since Warriors Orochi is the Warriors' "Avengers" equivalent, it's safe to say that I'll be looking at a lot of character rosters. OH MY JEEZUS In case you people don't know what this Warriors Orochi thing is, let me give a brief summary of the plots of each game so far. Warriors Orochi is....... well this series is predictably whack. The first game is about the three Chinese kingdom + Sengoku era warriors brought together because Orochi aka the Japanese 8 head snake demon comes to life & want to take over the world, so it's up to them to stop him. They did, then Warriors Orochi 2 happen which is the same thing, but with more characters & tweaked story. Then Warriors Orochi 3 happened and surprisingly, it's not a game about Orochi, but about Hydra & the 9 tailed fox Tamamo. I mean Orochi's still in the game, but it's about them instead. And this time the story mode is much more straightforward and it has chapters 1 till the end, unlike the ones before which are seperated into Wei, Wu, Shu, the Samurais and the evil Orochi faction. 4 continues the straightforward chapters story progression, and this time Koei decided to bring Zeus, Ares and Athena to the mix. Yes, now the Greek Gods joined the party, as well as Odin & Loki surprisingly enough. WHAT IS THIS, God Of War PS2 PS3 PS4 IN 1 GAME??? Kratos is in the game, but he's a generic commander. And also a couple of characters that are in PS4 God of War, but they're also just generic commanders. Surprisingly enough, there's also horsemen of the apocalypse. Yes, there's Death & War from what I see, and yes, they're just generic commanders. I think Koei's saving the playable upgraded versions for the Warriors Orochi 4 Godlike edition or something like that. If you have ever played the latest Samurai Warriors & Dynasty Warriors except 9 which just sucks ass, then you have played Warriors Orochi. I mean seriously, the characters from those games are here & they play exactly the same as those games they're in. Warriors Orochi's gimmicks though is that you can have 3 characters in 1 go so you can switch them all on the fly, so if you've used the same moves as a character over and over again, you can switch and do the same thing with another character! Thankfully 4 added another cool mechanic which makes things so much better, and that's the Greek magic skills. Each character are assigned their own special Greek weaponries, so Zhou Tai has a magic sword that drops meteors, Tadakatsu Honda has Poseidon's trident that brings water etc, and even though there are repeat weapons with a lot of characters, every single one of the characters has special ultimate attacks with those weapons, so there's a LOT of new moves you can do in this game like so. There's also a "unity" attack, aka fill a bar & once it's full you can release a nuke that destroys enemies around you. Of course the problem that's in every other Warriors game is here too: it gets repetitive doing the same moves over and over and over again. I finished this game recently after many times of playing 3 missions in 1 day, only to get bored & play it much later when I don't feel bored. But at least in this game eventually I get energized & finally did a marathon finishing the story in 1 week instead of stop playing the game like other Dynasty/ Samurai Warriors games before because in those games every character + faction have their own story & to see everything you have to play every single character. With these games I tend to have a personal favorite character in each series. Zhou Tai, Zhang He, Zhao Yun, Shangxiang and Xu Shu are my Dynasty Warriors picks while Sanada Yukimura, Hanzo, Tadakatsu and Magoichi are my Samurai Warriors picks. That goes out the window after the Greek & Norse gods are unlocked. My God, Ares broke the damn game so damn hard. He has a move where he ride his weapon like a surfboard while the weapon sucks every enemy in front of it, and then spit every enemy out at once. It got so chaotic that most of the time the game freezes because there are too many enemies on screen at once after the weapon spits everyone out. Athena is also really damn good because she has laser attacks, and can petrify enemies while dealing insane damage. Then there's Odin. He stops time....... and his attacks clear crowds in an instant.......... he makes Lu Bu look like a kindergarten brat. You unlock them at the last chapter of the game after you play around 60+ characters in various missions, and it's safe to say that you will never return to those characters ever again once you unlock these guys. Man, this just makes me even more hyped for God of War 2 PS4! 22) Knights of Pen and Paper 2 Platform: PC This is a sequel to the first game that was on iPhone about a D&D session that you take part in. You choose your characters & classes, and instead of it being just a typical "pick human dwarf elves" or whatevs, you can also pick what kind of teenager you are, whether it's "jocks, cheerleaders, surfer dude" or just a hipster, each have their own special stats & abilities. The game's combat is turn based, and exploration is done by walking through locations on a world map, as shown in this trailer. There are a couple of dungeons you can enter, and most of the time you'll set off a trap, and you will get damaged once or twice because this game's way of dodging these traps is to have you roll a 20 number dice, and most of the time that dice number will not reach the safe number. Initiating combat can be from random encounters if you fail to roll your dice above the minimum "danger" number, or by going on an area & picking how many enemies you want to fight. This game is very self aware & silly, so expect a lot of characters just talking about geeky D&D stuff. It's quite fun overall.
  11. I wouldn't buy anything from the Ubisoft store cause they're more expensive than buying from other websites. I would rather get their games for free from Epic Games Store because the store gives out 1 free game each week, and I got For Honor, Steep & Rayman Legends, as well as other great games like the entire Batman Arkham Trilogy, Yooka Laylee the Impossible Lair + Mutant Year Zero. Who knows, in the future they probably will put a bunch of Assassin's Creed games for free too.
  12. Man, I remember playing Battlefield 1942 singleplayer & spent all day with it with that awesome themesong. And that's when back then my PC was ass and I don't know much about PC making, so I played the game with very low graphics setting otherwise the framerate will crap itself on higher setting. It was a fun time. It's sad that this once-beloved series has been fucked to the ground by EA. They did right with Battlefield 1, why did they have to ruin it with Battlefield 5?? Where's Bad Company 3?? I want that thing so much! I saw one vid that makes me laugh about how the theme for Battlefield got worse over time. Thank the Lord Battlefield 1's theme actually returns to orchestra epic. Now this next one is from a Streets of Rage clone called The TakeOver. This game changed a lot compared to back when it was in alpha early access, and now it's finally a complete game, with a lot of great tunes.
  13. 19) Horace Platform: PC When I got this game for the Epic Games Store as part of their free game thing and saw the trailer, I thought "ok, this looks fun from the crazy trailer. Lots of fun moments & looks like there's a lot of minigames as well as lots of platforming to do, I'm gonna have a good time!" The trailer lied to me. This game..... is freaking depressing. Ok not entirely depressing but still, you start out 1 hour into the game doing movement tutorials while your main character Horace narrates the cutscenes that sounds like it's from one of those robotic "text to word" thing you can do on Google, and everything seems fine because you got a house full of colorful characters, including your creator who's kind & teaches you what it means to be a human being. Some shenanigans happen, mostly very lighthearted stuff. Then you're tasked with climbing a platform that's too high to reach to get a teddy bear by the creator, and just as he's about to give you an upgrade that lets you get the bear, he passed away............. That makes me sad......... The whole game is like that. It will show you a funny cutscene, most that are a reference to either a film or a game. Reservoir Dogs, Mission Impossible, 2001 Space Odyssey, Terminator, if you can think of it, you bet that this game will have it. At one point you actually participated in a gaming tournament with other robots that are cameos like Robocop, Astro Boy & even the fraud Billy Mitchell, who actually cheated on the tournament by proclaiming "I have a higher score than him, which is shown in this VHS tape, so I win!". And then the next thing you know, a horrible thing happened and then you get all sad. Even the end of the game is freaking depressing, though in a bittersweet way. WHY YOU TOY ME LIKE THIS GAME?? But on the bright side, this game has LOTS of variety. This game is mainly a metroidvania esque thing mixed in with gravity-defying platforming & tough as nails traps to dodge like Celeste or Super Meat Boy, but much more forgiving because you get to have little robot helpers that acts as a life bar as you progress through the game. The platforming you do in this game pretty damn good, even if they're quite tough, but you get a lot of upgrades to use as you get deeper into the game which makes previously hair rippingly frustrating parts a cakewalk afterwards. Aside from platforming, you play SO MANY minigames, mainly because Horace himself is a HUGE gamer. There's a couple of arcades you can visit that has classic copycat versions of Outrun, After Burner & Space Invaders to name a few, as well as employment minigames you can play which gives you cash, and they're rhythm minigames that unfortunately, doesn't have quite a good tune to accompany them. It's an awesome idea, but not if the songs sound like generic garageband music. This brick song in particular makes me annoyed by how bland it is. Which is odd because most of the songs in this game are pretty decent, even the music minigame that parodies real life bands are alright. There's a lot more minigames this game has which I won't spoil, most of which are quite fun. Which explains why this game's size is 13GB. I think it's done that way to reduce the annoyance after dying over and over again from platforming challenges. Which then goes to depressing again after the game decides to show another sad story moment on your way. Don't play this game if you want a happy game........... 20) Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde: Revised Platform: PC I recently saw James Rolfe made a youtube video about a fan made Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde sequel. This guy made a revised version of the first godawful game, which makes the cane ACTUALLY KNOCK PEOPLE OUT. So how can I not try a game like that out??? And so I played it after downloading it from this which also have a lot of other revised games: https://www.retrogamer3.com/ It's alright. Unfortunately Jekyll is still slow as a snail when he walks, and there's still a bunch of enemies that pester you when you're walking to your wedding, but you can fight back now! And the coins actually gives your health back. And you have a map which lets you know how far you are before the end of a level, and when you're Hyde, you don't get auto scrolled & you don't die beacuse you got D4C'ed by going in the same distance as Jekyll. This should've been the original game, instead of the torture that makes no sense that NES got. Now I actually WANT to play the sequel this guy made to continue Jekyll's hilariously messed up story.
  14. 12) Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir Platform: PS4 This is the remake of the PS2 game, which also includes the original game so that means there's 2 games in 1. WHAT A DEAL! And this remake is SOOOOOO much better than the original that I played long time ago but only managed to finish the first chapter. It's from the same dev as Dragon's Crown, but this one is an altered version of Norse mythology, though surprisingly only a few characters actually have the usual names like Odin, while the rest of the characters are most definitely from the original myth, but with altered names. Like Gwendolyn who's supposed to be Brynhild & Oswald who's supposed to be Sigurd. No Thor or Loki in this one. This game is pretty much one giant love story for the 5 characters you get to play, and also with preventing Armageddon as the main plot, and it's pretty sweet overall, especially Velvet & Cornelius. Those 2 are perfect for each other & they deserve a happy end after all the shit they went through. I don't know why this game forces you to play characters in set orders rather than having you pick which of the 5 you want to start as because every character has their own story & their own timeline of event, and it should be better to jump between different characters in chronological order. I mean Resident Evil 6 lets you pick which characters you want & you can play in the order that fits the timeline. Ah well, it is what it is. The original game was SO janky because not only are you unable to do flashy combos like the remake, but every attack you do uses stamina. Yep, it's Dark Souls before Dark Souls made stamina for attacks popular. The remake completely changes the combat and now you can do 100+ combo chains like nothing with each characters, and all of them have their own special moves you can pull off that you can upgrade in their own skill tree. I collected every skill & got S ranks on every single battle. It's so much easier to do compared to the original because all you need to do is chain 100+ combos, and kill enemies as fast as you can. It makes the original FAR inferior in comparison which I found out after switching to the original mode in the game. That's AWESOME that a game lets you play both the remake & the original version and it's not just a cosmetic change! This game is surprisingly very damn long because you have to play the game with all 5 characters to get their complete story, and then at the end you need to play against 5 different bosses, but you're given the order on which characters fight which bosses. Obviously you have to pick the right characters to get the good ending, but depressingly you have to mix and match every possible combination of each bosses to get the true end because specific characters have their own interactions. The good thing is only the first 3 have multiple special bad ends while 4 & 5 have generic ones, so you can just do the first 3 without needing to do boss 4 & 5 again after you do them. BUT when you do them all, the true end is damn worth getting. 13) Crewsaders Platform: PC This is a fun local multiplayer game where you control this siege tower, uh, thingy and you along with 2 other people control it. Just look at this thing The key in this game is teamwork & not panic. If you control the sword, then stick with it because you have to move it as the other team move their shield to block it. If you go all over the place, you're fucked. It's damn satisfying once you kill the other team & make them bites the dust. Shame there's no story mode though, this is just a casual vs game match. Still fun! 14) The Haunted Island, a Frog Detective Game Platform: PC A very lighthearted point & click detective game where you're a frog detective & you have to investigate an island that's haunted by ghostly noises. I like how in the intro you & your boss talked to each other & he said something about Indonesia, and the frog actually say accurate Indonesian phrase. That makes me happy! It's a short & sweet game. All you do in this game is collect items, talk to different people, get items from them & give items to them until you get all the items you need & progress through the game. Short but sweet. There's a second game called Frog Detective 2: The Case of the Invisible Wizard, and it looks more elaborate this time around. Can't wait to see what that game's about! 15) Paperbark Platform: PC This is another short & sweet game based in Australia where you control a wombat doing his thing in the forest. AWWW, LOOK AT THAT CUTE LITTLE, well actually this thing is surprisingly big because it's the size of an axe but AWW LOOK AT THAT CUTE THING! This is a bushfire awareness game, so the poor guy had to get through a bushfire as it happened, but in the end he's ok & it ends cutely. PHEW, good thing the dev are actually nice people and not sick bastards! 16) Totally Accurate Battle Simulator Platform: PC It's that game that was popular when it was out that looks like a sillier version of Total War. I don't know why, but the game starts on a rick roll. I think it's because this game's version I'm playing is still in an April fools mood. It's in a much more improved version now because you get to actually take control of one of your units & I played the campaign till the end, or at least till the end for now. I was forced to play as an Olympian vs the Vikings at the final level, and it was..... very one-sided on my part because I got Zeus & ballistas which just DESTROYS their units. Goes to show that when you have a God with fast as hell lighting strikes with you, you're guaranteed to win every fight. XD 17) Armello Platform: PC Finally got to play this game after the Humble Bundle deal. It's that game mentioned in this thread This is a GREAT start for a game genre, and much MUCH less time consuming than Civilization because you don't have to spend 10 hours for 1 match. And it's kind of what happens when Hand of Fate meets Civilization. The one bummer I have with this game is that the singleplayer mode doesn't let you manual save. Which is pretty freaking annoying because as with any game that has rolling dices as a game mechanic, sometimes the game can just screw you over. Oh you have 7 dices? Unfortunately you managed to only land 3 attacks with that dice with no defence, so the other opponent kills you anyway. Which actually happened to me....... But at least I can quit the game & the game loads back to before my turn or an opponents' turn. Phew! I use Thane because he's the most all rounded with his stats, and I won a match by having the most prestige And I won another by purifying the king because I have 4 spirit stones with me. But it's such a shame that all you get for the spirit stone victory is a little animation of the king fainting after he got attacked by 4 stones, and there's no special cool cutscene of him thanking you for saving him from the rot infestation this kingdom have. Ah well, I'm a hero regardless! 18) Black Mirror: Bandersnatch Platform: PC....... sort of. It's a Netflix game. There was a thing December 2018 where everyone talked about this thing called Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, which was a Netflix thing that when I looked at it back then about an indie game developer in the 1980s that's developing a game based on a game book of the same name Bandersnatch. Now I actually looked at it myself and found out: This is actually a choose your own adventure game, on Netflix. And it's awesome! Remember that PS4 game Erica that was released out of nowhere after it got a Gamescom trailer? This Bandersnatch is more of a game than that game, because you actually have multiple paths & not just an illusion of a multiple path like Erica had. There's cool shit that happened like if you picked the choices and hit a bad ending & choose to replay the previous choice, the characters in it will comment on the thing that happened before like "no no don't pick that option, it's the wrong choice". And there's even one ending where YOU can tell the main character that you're playing this game & tell him all about it which leads to a silly end. It even has a moment where you're putting a 5 digit number into the screen before the timer runs out, as well as many other fourth wall breaking crazy shit that happened. There's 6 endings you can get, and funnily enough the best ending happen when you finally release the game that you're developing and the game received a 2.5 out of 5 rating. If you pick the easiest option at the beginning, the game is a 0 out of 5, and if you pick the more...... fucked up shit, you get a 5 out of 5, but it's totally not worth it. Check this out if you have a Netflix, it's pretty cool! Hopefully there's more games like this on Netflix.
  15. The funny thing about that particular song: I can't find it anywhere. I tried using Shazam in the background after I personally edited the song's parts to get rid of background music with no result, use music recognition software on my Chrome on that song part, checked every youtube comment on that video and found that NOBODY knows what the song is, even went back and listen to lots of songs by Callenish Circle because Joe used one of the band's song for his outro, but nothing matches that song. Maybe it's a royalty-free song since it's played in the background & it's not copyright claimed? Only Joe & the mods knows what the song is, so you probably should go to the discord channel & ask people there because that's where most active members are these days.
  16. Australia had been experiencing one of the worst bushfires we ever had. These 2 weeks alone for me personally in Melbourne, I had to deal with smoke fires all around my apartment because of other bushfires around the Melbourne suburbs + Sydney coming in to the city. It's definitely MUCH better now because of a recent rain 2 days ago, but the other parts of Australia are still in trouble from this disaster, so me & my friends here are doing what we can to support the people our own way, by doing a fighting game stream today & tomorrow on which we entered a tournament of our choosing & pay the entry fee which will go towards charity. We're gonna have a lot of fun these 2 days, and all for a good cause! I also found a damn great bundle from Humble Bundle as part of the bushfire relief which you guys should definitely check out & get. https://www.humblebundle.com/games/australia-fire-relief?hmb_source=navbar&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=tile_index_1 Not only are you getting a GREAT deal out of it, Hollow Knight, Crawl & Hand of Fate 2 just to name a few, but you're going to help people here as well with your purchase. The deal is going for 5 days. It's a win win so go for it!
  17. Final Fantasy 7 Remake is delayed? https://www.gamesradar.com/au/final-fantasy-7-remake-delayed/ Ok, nothing major. It's just 1 month. I mean it is a remake of FF7 & it's episodic and it's better to have all the episodes out first to get the full experience, so this delay means nothing. Avengers game is delayed to September? https://www.engadget.com/2020/01/14/marvels-avengers-delayed-to-september-4/ Oh......... ok......... meh, I already saw people playing this game at PAX & it looks alright, so I'm not too hyped about it. Cyberpunk 2077 is delayed to September too? https://www.cnet.com/news/cyberpunk-2077-release-date-pushed-back-and-everything-else-we-know/ NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Actually....... there's DOOM Eternal, RE 3 Remake & Last of Us part 2 to keep me busy. Ah well, problem solved!
  18. Me too.
  19. 10) Table Top Racing: World Tour Platform: PC This is one of Steam's version of Mario Kart, except this one has a Micro Machines theme: play as a miniature car on top of a table & race through either fancy lunch table with various dishes, some table owned by mechanics & a table with a bunch of tabletop games. You get 3 car classes & 2 championships for each with a bunch of different race missions you had to do first before entering the championship itself. The first 2 classes are fun & gives you the right challenges without it being too easy. The third one? FUCK THAT SHIT. Now to be fair all you have to do to progress to the championship is to just place at least 3rd in every missions, but me, ohoho, I want to get first in ALL of them. So that's why I replayed the races on the 3rd class championship OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN until my thumb hurts. The worst part of them all is the drifting challenge where you have to earn the required totals, and I replayed 2 missions 70+ times total. Then after replaying that much, I saw a youtube video of someone doing the challenge & got 1 million points like nothing...... JEESUZ. This is one of the extreme optional challenge btw, the ones I did requires 200,000 & 185,000 points, but the tracks are complete horse shit because one track is on a table with lots of curves & pits, while the other one is on a Japanese restaurant sushi table with lots of conveyor floors for the sushis & up + down ramps, so if you fall down while drifting & you got 60,000 points in a single drift, you can fall on a wrong angle and ALL THOSE POINTS ARE GONE! FUCK THESE MISSIONS TO HELL! Other than that though, the rest of the challenges are actually fun & tense as hell. The final championship can be unfair because the other car ALWAYS go really far in front of you, unless you hit the car with a weapon at the right time. My final championship match was actually freaking insane since it's a 5 consecutive race, and by the end of the 4th match, it was either me or 2 other CPU opponents. And in the last race, I started at the bottom because I got slammed by other cars, then in the VERY LAST LAP, I used my power up at just the exact moment to hit the CPU on 1st place, and then I finally won the damn championship. OH THIS FEELS SO GOOD!!! If I lost that final match, this would be a whole nother story entirely! 11) Dragon's Crown Pro Platform: PS4 This is a remaster of the game on PS3, with added touchscreen support. This game is from the same dev as Odin's Sphere & Muramasa the Demon Blade for Wii, but a lot more traditional Dungeons & Dragons which now that I think of it, is probably heavily inspired by that surprisingly awesome Capcom arcade game Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara, only not so ridiculously hard that you have to insert coins over and over again. And as it turns out, IT IS. This game is actually a spiritual successor to the first one, Dungeons & Dragons: Tower of Doom because the lead designer worked on that game when he was young. No wonder the game feels so familiar! Because it's a spiritual successor, the gist of the game is also the same: pick which character you want to pick, then hack & slash enemies up. You get a hub world where you can buy/ sell/ repair equipments before doing a mission, as well as go to an adventurer guild to get sidequests & upgrade your character stats + gain new movelist to make combat even more fun. The story progression is by, well, going to different missions & hack monsters + enemies up like good old Tower of Doom! Though aside from the usual beat em up combat with RPG equipment mechanics, this game does mix things up. You can find dead bodies of other players which you can either burry to get items, or revive so they can help you in your journey. When you get farther into the game, you'll gain the ability to use different runes, and you do this by buying runestones from a mage in the hub world, and then in each of the 9 stages, you will see markings on the wall like this. This thing that looks like a C & W for example. Then you can mix 3 rune languages by hovering your right analog stick cursor to the language & click on it to give different spells a go. There's a spell that gives you healing, power up, and even unlock secret doors & show secret treasure chest which that guy with a sack can open for you which either gives you weapons, armor parts or accessories. You know, the usual dungeons and dragons staple. Interestingly, this game has around 10 levels, but 9 of of them has 2 routes. You unlock the second route after completing all 9 stages, and as expected, it's a lot more difficult, but also necessary because you need to complete them all to obtain various stones that you will then use to battle the final boss in the 10th stage, which is so very much this guy, but with MANY more moves & thankfully a lot less cheap to fight. Funnily enough, you DO get to fight a "Red Dragon" before this guy in a previous stage, and that guy is somehow even harder than the final boss. I don't know how, but it is what it is! Then after you beat the final boss, you get a great celebration of your character which makes you feel like a badass, but then the game's version of a new game plus happened, and it basically tells you to do the same thing as before with the stones collection because "there's another final boss stronger than the guy you face before, so if you want to, please collect 9 more stones and beat that guy".............
  20. 4) Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Platform: PC I recently watched this old funny movie I used to watch when I was younger called Security Unlimited. Cause it takes place in Hong Kong, I suddenly want to finish Sleeping Dogs. Still fun to play, and the definitive edition has every DLC from the normal edition, with the costumes being unlocked by buying them from the market, each of them more expensive than the rest. It even has costumes that makes you Sun Wukong & one of these brassmen monks. 5) Cat Quest Platform: PC A surprisingly awesome action adventure game where you're a cat that got his sister kidnapped, and then the whole game is you leveling up so that you completed every single quest you can find & complete many dungeons, while also unlocking item chests along the way to get lots of cool gears. The way you play the game is quite cool in that you play on a world map. There's no HP or MP potions to use, but instead, you use spells/ rest on a town to heal & beat the hell out of enemies to restore your MP. It's quite annoying that the items you get from chests are all random and there's no fast travel mechanic, but luckily for me, I always get upgrades for my current gear so I don't have to swap with other gears often, and you actually get 2 really cool travel upgrades that make you fast as hell as you get really far into the game. There are gold chests that require a key to unlock, and I thought I had to collect them from a dungeon somewhere. But it turns out nope! All you need to unlock them is to complete 1 quest, and then you get the gold key that unlocks every single gold chests you passed on before. It's quite funny how the most powerful weapon in the game is actually your bare fist, ahem I mean "willpower". I beat the game after completing almost every single sidequest except 1 that's so high up that it'll take me hours of grinding, but that's actually just extra DLC content & I completed all the main game quests. It's pretty weird that the game doesn't have an end credits after you finish the game, instead you just complete the main quest, quest completed, and then you go on to explore the open world some more with unlocked new game +. 6) KIDS Platform: PC It's the next game from the creators of the drug trip PG (sort of) Human Centipede Plug & Play............................... Thankfully it doesn't have images that will scar you for life like that other game, but STILL. WHAT DRUGS WERE THESE GUYS ON WHEN THEY MADE THIS???? 7) Resident Evil/ Biohazard 6 Platform: PC I actually beat this game so many times back in 2013 - 2014 that I almost got all of the skills in the game purchased & unlocked. Now I decided that "you know what, I'm gonna reset my entire progress because I want to play this game all over again", so I reset my entire progress from square 1, and then beat this game all over again. And I STILL LOVE THIS GAME! Which officially makes this the RE game that I played the most, way more than the recent RE games. RE7, played that game 4 times. RE 2 Remake, 3 times. 4, 10 times + mods. 5, 10 times + mods. Revelations 2? 2 times. 6? This progress reset is probably my 13th time playing this game. The combat is so damn good!!! Maybe I should complete the first RE Revelations on my 3DS one of these days, but urgh. I can't stand looking at that damn carrot top Conan o Brien looking guy. URGHH, GET AWAY FROM ME REJECT SHOP CARROT TOP! 8) Leaden Sky Platform: PC I found this game after searching for random games I can play on Google. Remember those good old days when the internet is so freaking slow & Newgrounds + flash games was a thing, and you have to wait 2 hours just to play a flash game because the speed is 1 KB per second? This game reminds me of an old flash game called Madness Interactive Only it's a more traditional 2D side scroller shooter, with SO. MUCH. GORE. At the moment the game lets you complete a level, and then brings you to an endless level where you just shoot as many enemies as possible while traveling to the right. There's also a testing chamber level to let you test out the gore system for your various weapons. I'm interested to see what will become of this game after even more levels are added. 9) Renegade Ops Platform: PC I hadn't touched this game since 2011. That's because I played Skyrim & forgot about this game. Well not anymore! Time to finish what I started! This is Avalanche Studio's less known game besides Just Cause & Mad Max. It's a twin stick vehicle destruction game which definitely takes notes from the A Team/ GI Joe in that you play as a vigilante road rashing gun nut group trying to stop an evil guy called Inferno, who apparenltly is immortal cause everytime you shoot him down, he always comes back alive. You can play as one of 7 people, each with their own special moves you can use, one of them surprisingly being Gordon Freeman. I personally like this guy called Blazemo because his special attack is a flame tornado that protects you from harm & damage nearby enemies. You play & level up the characters while also unlocking their perks to use. As you destroy enemies, you earn points that can help you level up & get high scores, though for some reason, 50% of the stuff you destroy doesn't give you points, even though they're mostly things that belongs to the enemy which is pretty weird. That's like having a destructible building in a game where you get points from destroying buildings, and then for some reason some buildings just don't give you points. Why?? Just give me those sweet points!! Aside from that, the whole game is a simple fun chaotic made great by Avalanche Studios' well known Just Cause destruction engine, and it's awesome!
  21. Goddamn. 2019 had already passed, and with that, so marks the beginning of a new decade. It's freaking scary how fast times passed every year. And it's time for the usual top 10 best games of the year, and after that, I'm going mention what 10 games of this decade still sticks with me & are my personal favorites till now, because these games are the culmination of how far gaming has gone through in all these years! Honorable mentions before I start my list: Disco Elysium. This game is awesome with a great story, cool funny game mechanics where your organs + thought talks to you & established lore which I can't wait to see expanded upon in the inevitable sequel, but at its core all you do in the game is pass through skill checks by save-scumming, and tediously walk from point a to point b because it doesn't have fast travel, making the game longer than it really is. Need more game variety like minigames, or actual combat like Shadowrun/ XCOM to elevate the game, because it would fit the game & I can't wait to see the crazy abilities the game will come up with. The Outer Worlds. The return of Obsidian & a middle finger to Bethesda's current state, especially Fallout 76. Overall it's good, but it's just way too safe & it feels too same as Fallout 3/ New Vegas, and also it's only around 21 hours even after finishing all the sidequests. Needs more gameplay variety, or more hard decisions you can make, but it's a good start to a new series. Mortal Kombat 11. Very fun fighting game with a lot of neat varieties & even a nice Krypt mode that's a God of War/ Deathtrap dodging exploration game, but FUCK. THAT. MICROTRANSACTIONS + RANDOM CHANCE LOOTBOXES. Those things RUINED what could otherwise be the best MK game in the series. The Plague Tale: Innocence. This is another game that I can call a "safe" game, because it's a damn good stealth game with TONS of rats involved, and it has a good brother + sister journey plot which ends on a nice sequel hook, but the game overall is nothing special for the most part since all you do is sneak around & throw slingshot at people's heads with other tools to use on the side, though the new endgame mechanic is damn awesome & I want to see what's next in the sequel. Blashpemous. The religious-based Metroidvania with plenty of gore, great artstyle & challenging fights. I almost want to put this game, but compared to another Metroidvania game that made it to my list, this game doesn't quite have much stuff that makes it stand above other Metroidvania games aside from the artstyle. Code Vein. Anime souls, but when I played it it's more like a Tales of game, but with weird vampires, Souls gameplay and surprisingly God Eater because this game takes place in the same universe, but at an unknown point in time. Really good game, but there's too many repeat songs & only a couple of awesome boss fights while the rest are ok. Indivisible. I was looking forward to this game ever since this game was in Indiegogo. I like the game a lot from the great Skullgirls artstyle to the fun Valkyrie Profile beat em up + turn based combat, buuut the game definitely can do a lot better with the recruitable characters involved, and it's quite a shame that the final portions of the game doesn't offer a challenge because your party got so powered up that every fight was a cakewalk afterward. Darksiders Genesis. I never thought a Darksiders would be this much fun, but it is! This game is the best game of the series so far, and in no small part to the awesomeness of Strife, how the Diablo esque camera is enhanced by slick gameplay & how much fun both War & Strife are in combat + puzzle solving which makes me want to explore every single area this game had & collect every collectible I can find without it being boring, unlike previous Darksiders which can get pretty annoying by the amount of backtracking & damage sponginess of the enemies. There are a couple of rough spots especially with the glitches that makes me fall through the world and enemies that just got stuck on walls which makes me have to restart a checkpoint though, so a patch is definitely needed. One Finger Death Punch 2. Simple, more content to enjoy, plenty of abilities to customize & a fuckload of fun. HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG WITH THIS AWESOME GAME??? That being said, it's pretty much the first game with new stuff. Still fun as hell though! Days Gone. A pretty good zombie game, with a lot of rough edges here and there due to the bugs & annoying parts in the game. At first the story doesn't grip me, but as the game goes on I get more invested in the characters & was satisfied with the end. Though it's a pretty typical survive the apocalypse zombie game, it has a cool you vs 100 zombie horde moments which are always fun to do & you get more powerful weapons that makes killing them much more fun, and there's a really damn cool sequel bait, and it's confirmed that this game is in the same universe as Syphon Filter through an easter egg, so I'm really looking forward to see how the sequel will tie things up together. CONTROL. I like this game a lot, especially since it's in the same universe as Alan Wake which is awesome! But even though the game overall is awesome with a second to final mission in a maze that is freaking rad, that ending just deflated me whole. I thought there would be some kind of 100% completion reward that will have a crossover with Alan Wake, but NOPE, not yet anyway. That crossover is coming but as DLC in 2020. As it stands, it's just about making it to my top 10. It's around top 11 - 12 for sure. Looking forward to the dlc though! Also the Switch games like Fire Emblem 3 Houses, Luigi's Mansion 3 & Astral Chain because I don't have a Switch, but I'm very sure those 3 are awesome. With that out of the way, here's my top 10 list: 10) Death Stranding This is Kojima's version of a delivery simulator. Only he made it REALLY fun & engaging, which definitely varies upon who's playing this game, but it's definitely infinitely better than No Man's Sky because it doesn't make your brain go numb from the repetition. Thankfully I like this game a lot & I enjoyed my time with it, even had a few good laughs & teared up during the story moments in the game which features some damn good acting from all the actors involved, especially Mads Mikkelsen. He deserved his award at the Game Awards this year. 9) Kingdom Hearts 3 The conclusion to the long running series where a kid from an island travel through Disney worlds with Donald & Goofy to fight against an evil old man with a key looking blade should not have been as much fun as it is, but it totally is! There are a couple of annoying places, especially that damn Frozen world where I had to listen to that cursed song all over again and the fact that Kairi is pretty much still a damsel in distress even though she's a keyblade master URRGHH, but I had a total blast throughout the game. And it's so damn good to finally put those damn Organisation 13 members down after all the shit they did throughout the series. I would put this game much higher, but not at its current state since the dlc that will make the game complete is not here yet. Can't wait for that though! 8) MO: Astray This was a game that I found out of nowhere one day, and I am damn glad I played it. I did not expect to see a game where you play as a cute blob jumping through post-apocalyptic spaceship wreckage, killing zombies by pouncing on their head while dodging deathtraps & going against intense as hell boss fights while trying to figure out what the hell is actually happening. Will there be a sequel to this game? I sure as hell hope so because I want to see what's next! 7) Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night The TRUE return of the man who is responsible for one of my favorite Metroidvania games of all time: Symphony of the Night. Playing this game gives me nostalgia goosebumps, especially the parts that are straight from Symphony of the Night, but with funny alteration as a well deserved "go fuck yourself" to Konami. I want to see what's next from IGA after this. 6) Metro Exodus The third Metro game of the series & the best one so far. What do you get when you make Metro a road trip game with your army budies + wife with her father & have mini open worlds to explore, each with their own themes which reminds you of Mad Max + STALKER? You get a freaking awesome game. My personal favorite stages especially are the Yamantau and the final stage which heavily goes back to old Metro 2033. Left the game feeling quite sad, but also really damn satisfied & can't wait to see what the sequel will bring to the table next. But if this is the end of the series, I don't mind too because they went out with a bang! 5) Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown I am a big Ace Combat fan, and seeing this game return to the setting of Ace Combat 5 instead of the questionable Assault Horizon or 6, mixed with plenty of great dogfighting, a great plot & the BEST soundtrack in the history of the series that amplifies every moment in the game makes this easily one of the best Ace Combat game in the series. I like this game so much that I actually listened to the best tracks in the game over and over again for whenever I was playing various games, especially Daredevil & Magic Spear 1 + 2. Still waiting for Ace Combat 3 Japanese edition to get a remake & get released to the world. I can still dream damn it! 4) Resident Evil/ Biohazard 2 Remake I had a lot of fun with this game as it makes Resident Evil/ Biohazard 2 actually make sense & believable that it's so damn hard for Leon & Claire to get out of Racoon City while in the original game there's dumb stuff that keeps happening, like how Leon just let Sherry wander around in a zombie-infested police station after she walked passed him in Claire A scenario URRGHH YOU IDIOT WHY ARE YOU A POLICE IN THE FIRST PLACE???? Ahem................. Yep it's great fun, especially when you critical headshot a zombie's head, or make them splatter their guts after you shoot their body in half with a shotgun. Playing this game makes me want to play Resident Evil/ Biohazard 6 though cause it annoys me here that you can't just dodge zombies, or shoot them in the head & go WWE on them. Ooohh that game was so much fun. Hope the 3 remake actually adds more moves to kill zombies since the Resistance multiplayer mode had lots of melee attacks. In short, 1 video sums up my feeling towards this game. Do I think this game's scary? HELL no. Not a chance in hell. Sure Mr X can be seen as scary the first time you see him, but he's more of an annoying bully that you just want to avoid because he keeps on trying to pester you, just like all the other Tyrants in the series, including Nemesis which I'll have to deal in the 3 remake. If you want scary, the damn Xenomorph from Alien Isolation is one, which I just revisited recently after playing Aliens Colonial Marines and that thing STILL scared the fucking shit out of me. That thing is the perfect example of a terrifying monster because it can come from anywhere, can kill you in an instant & doesn't have any predictable pattern like Mr X. I still have great fun with the RE2 remake regardless. 3) Star Wars: Fallen Order I am so damn happy that we FINALLY got the next great Star Wars game after all the years of ok Star Wars game. I have been waiting for the next Jedi Knight game, and we finally got the spiritual successor to that. Who would have thought that all EA need to do is let Respawn do their own thing & fuck off with their bullshit microtransaction?? They should do this more often! And seeing how the sequel is in development, rightly so, I can't freaking wait for that game to expand on Cal's ability & have even more epic lightsaber duels + awesome Sekiro level boss fights. It's one of the 2 great light in the tunnel for Star Wars after Rise of Skywalker ended the numbered series on a film so ok it's not even worth mentioning, the other great light being the Mandalorian. Make the next best thing Respawn, I will wait for thee! Like last year, these next 2 are so damn good, I had to mix them to one. 2) Sekiro + Devil May Cry 5 I replayed these 2 games so many damn times this year. DMC 5 especially since I played it 3 times on PC, then another on PS4 after I got a free copy from a "get the highest score in stage 1" competition at my local video game bar. It's the long-awaited return for both Devil May Cry & Tenchu after years of lying dormant in the darkness, and damn what a great time for these 2 to show up. Sekiro's final boss fight is currently the best boss that From Software has ever made, and I like it so much that I have a backup save file before the final boss so that I can fight that boss over and over and over again. DMC 5 is just freaking awesome, and the final boss is definitely the best final boss in DMC history that of course, I replayed over and over again. Why doesn't DMC 5 get my number 1 spot this year? Because I'm still waiting for the Special Edition so I can play as Vergil and the girls that's why! WHERE IS IT??? I WANT IT NOW!!! And at last. My number 1 game of the year. 2 of them. Why? Because these 2 are damn great detective games, both murder cases have to do with missing eyeballs & surprisingly have the same english voice actor for its main character which I did not see coming, just like a good mystery plot twist! Initially when I finished these games, I thought they're really damn good, but not quite GOTY. BUT the more that I think about them, the more that I love them, until it sticks to my mind like glue from all the great time I had & replaying the entire game again after playing them once, and seeing how everything before makes a whole lot more sense after knowing the truth. 1) AI: The Somnium Files & Judgment At first I don't think Judgment should be here because I already put Judge Eyes the Japanese only version in my GOTY list last year, but then I remember Persona 5 was one of my 3 GOTY for 2017 since that's the English version's release date, so technically Judgment is a 2019 game. And the english version actually replaced the actor who portrayed Hamura in the original Japanese version because the original actor was involved in a cocaine bust, so there ya go. AI Somnium Files is the next game from the people behind the Zero Escape series, with a detective theme involving murders of people with their left eye missing, and a bunch of cool futuristic techs that helps you along the way, which the more you play, the more twists there are, and in the end it culminates in a finale that just brings everything to a great conclusion. Judgment is the next game from the people behind the great Yakuza/ Ryu Ga Gotoku series taking place after Yakuza 6 with an entirely new main character this time, with a detective theme involving murders of people with their eyes missing, and a lot of bro moments from various pals you will befriend throughout the game where they assist you in kicking a bunch of dude's asses, and with the same quirky sidequests + minigames that makes the previous Ryu Ga Gotoku. Also has awesome Ace Attorney investigation aspects + courtroom segments to play in, and in the end it culminates in a finale that just brings everything to a great conclusion. If both of these games sounds a bit similar from the way I described it, it's only the fact that they're detective games with missing eyes included. And that both main characters have the same english voice actor. And also that both of these games are FUCKING AWESOME, in their own ways of course. AI Somnium Files's strength lies in how much detail is packed into the world + characters, especially how every object you interact with in the world gives new funny dialogues everytime you click on them in different scenarios. Also this guy which you can ask for his name. Poor poor Kagami. XD So many scenes in this game makes me tear up, both the sad & happy tears, and it all feels rewarded & not forced, which is awesome when a game can do that. By the end of the game, I got attached to every npcs involved in this game. Then I replayed the game again with different things I did in the dream sequences to see hidden easter eggs + humorous banters, and with the knowledge I learned from the final portions of the game that makes neat little foreshadowing stands out, and I love it even more! Judgment's strength on the other hand is not only in the usual Yakuza quirkiness of being able to play SEGA games in the arcade, the various minigames + side quests filled with memorable weird characters, but also the story & mystery. This is easily the best story out of the other Yakuza games with great revelations in the plot that hits you like a brick, and story moments that makes you want to tear up in places, while also yell HELL FUCKING YES at the awesome moments. That coupled with great combat makes this game a damn joy to play all over again for me, especially the boss battles like this guy. And the unforgettable final boss that currently stands as one of the top tier final bosses in Ryu Ga Gotoku history. This game is even better now, especially after the bad taste in my mouth that was Shenmue 3 which was such a fucking disappointment. And that people, is my top 10 games of 2019. To avoid this post being too long, I will share my top 10 best games of this decade later, and it's...... an interesting one that's for sure because as the years gone by, previous games which I put as GOTY may not necessarily be in my mind anymore due to how there are other games that suddenly show up out of nowhere to surprise me, and by how previous games which I thought was ok turns out to be really damn good. So stay tuned! If you choose. Post your best top 10 games if you so wish, and extra point if the games you mentioned is an obscure game that needs more love, because I am always keen to play those games!
  22. 2020 has begun. Let's beat those games like we always do! Hopefully this year we'll beat so many great games, that bad games will become a thing of last decade. Oh who are we kidding, we're still gonna play bad games even if it's by accident or curiosity, but I sincerely hope that they will be bad in a "so bad it's enjoyable" way rather than "so bad they make you hate yourself for playing the damn thing". I got a bunch of free games from the Epic Games Store 12 days giveaway + discounts, so I'm expecting to beat those this month, and thankfully they're all great games so I won't have to worry about hating em! 1) Ape Out Platform: PC You know what, I think this game should be called Ape Escape, because that's what this game is about. Not this Ape Escape series where you catch monkeys, The should've called that series "Ape Catch Fever" because that's what it totally is! Ahem anyway, Ape Out is that Hotline Miami esque gorilla game where you escape from a cage, and then splattering people who are just doing their job to capture/ kill you since you pretty much just murdered their friends. You get to play 5 "record discs" that represents the stages, each one starts you on different locations. The first is a facility, second is a 30 floor building, third is a warzone, fourth is a boat, which you escape from & then you ended up going to a zoo, and the last one is a bonus stage where you rescue your son/daughter from a facility. I don't know if the first 4 stages are in linear story progression which makes you one unlucky ape, or they're just different scenarios. Either way, all you do is kill your captors while navigating through randomized mazes & escape, while listening to improv percussion instruments playing in the background. It's really fun, and it's not until the ending of the fourth stage will you actually hear actual music playing, which is actually quite funky. It's apparently a modified version of a song called You've Got To Have Freedom by Pharoah Sanders. Neat! 2) Redeemer Platform: PC A top down beat em up game where you play as a former Russian soldier who decided to become a monk, and then years later his old boss destroyed his temple so you kill a bunch of people who wrecked it. It's good old beat em up fun, but it has a leveling up element where the more you use your first, kicks or weapons, the better they become & you can unlock various perks that make them better. I don't know why but the second part of this game in a lab with monsters is WAYYY harder than the rest of the game which are far easier since that part has monsters that can't be killed with your bare hands & you have to use weapons, but the rest of the game afterward doesn't have those kinds of enemy types. Either way, still fun to play & I got to maul enemies with various tools of death along the way. I wish that the game has an adrenaline meter that gives you temporary power boosts though because it definitely fits in the game. 3) From Next Door Platform: PC A neat RPG Maker game that I found out of nowhere that can be found here. https://spacezeta.itch.io/from-next-door It's about a girl that moved into a new house that she got for..... a suspiciously low price. Then you know, creepy stuff happened. Apparently this game was made on a 2016 Pixel Horror Jam event, and it's pretty well done. It has a couple of endings too, but too bad the best ending is earned by running away from the house instead of confronting the creepy stuff in the house, though I would do the same thing if I was her, except I would buy a different house & do my research to what happened in the place first!
  23. Yosha, break time's over, and now it's time to look back at the past decade to see what 10 games I considered to be so damn good that it stuck with me until now: Actually fuck it. There's so many games, so I'm just gonna make it a top 20. There are multiple games in a series which I will just plop into one number like a Frankenstein monster because they all deserve to be mentioned. There are some games in a series which I think very fondly of, but then the next game in the series pretty much ruins it as a whole either because of how they continue the story & ruined the game because of it, or because of stupid behind the scenes politics, or because something about them just doesn't age well after replaying them. I can name some that I am thinking of putting but decided not to: Batman Arkham City, because Arkham Knight ended the series with a lot of questionable decisions, making me unable to like it as much anymore Dead Space 2, because Dead Space 3 ended on a cliffhanger after they decided to add that mistake that is the dlc. Elder Scrolls Skyrim. The way Bethesda ruined Fallout 76 just...... just makes me not enjoy this game which I used to play SO MUCH with mods. MGS 5 Phantom Pain, because Konami has joined the dark side Red Dead Redemption 2 + GTA 5. I KNOW, but I replayed Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC when it was out, and not only is the Red Dead Online part of the game grindy as hell that it pretty much sucks the fun out of it, it also ruined the singleplayer once I got back into it because I've done everything in the game 100+ times already just to get the gold that is required to unlock the bounty hunting + collector job. And GTA 5 was awesome when I played it in 2013, but every open world game since then like Yakuza + Witcher 3 adds so much more stuff to the open world variety that they make GTA 5 have wayyyy less appeal in comparison. Uncharted 4. I LOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH, but the way Sam was introduced & the questionable things he did in the game, not to mention how this game which was intended to be the last adventure of Nathan doesn't include Chloe & Charlie after the things they went through in 2 & 3, and how pretty much half of the game's problems are completely unnecessary because Nathan didn't tell the truth to Elena like he's SUPPOSED TO, makes me think less fondly of this game. And finally, Mass Effect 2. Oh how Mass Effect 3 fucked everything up. Without further delay, here are my personal favorite awesome games of 2010 - 2019. And they're not in particular order, so here ya go: 1) Witcher 3 Is there any doubt why Witcher 3 was so damn good? It did EVERYTHING right. Great characters, really fun gameplay where you do a lot of memorable sidequests + collection quests without them being boring no matter how many times you do them, great story, and best of all, it is based on a novel series & this game along with the previous ones adapted the novel's events extremely well, making me actually do research on the past novels before playing this game & feel extremely rewarded that the game continues the novel's plots brilliantly. 2) Muse Dash I am a big fan of rhythm games, and there's a lot of them I played over the years. Some lets you use your own soundtrack like Audiosurf, others have their own kickass songs. But Muse Dash trumps all of them. It is so simple, but yet really fucking awesome to play with a fair difficulty that makes replaying songs still fun even after you play them over and over again. THIS epic song especially is freaking awesome that I replayed it 10+ times by now. More rhythm games need to play like this, not be overly complex with their controls that you have to use 10 buttons on a keyboard like a pianist! 3) Hollow Knight Easily the best Metroidvania game of the 2010 - 2019, and it's pretty much Secret Of NIMH insect edition. Or a darker Bugs Life, whichever you prefer. Everything about this game is freaking awesome, from the slick combat, the great boss fights, the many memorable characters, and great story. I can't wait for Silksong & finally get the chance to play as Hornet! 4) Alien Isolation I am not joking when I say that this game is one of the SCARIEST game I have ever played in my life. That is all thanks to how fucking terrifying the xenomorph is in this game. And that's quite an accomplishment considering that these guys were usually just generic enemies that you can kill with headshots or a Predator's claw in the AVP games. What is worse than an enemy that is so powerful that all you can do is avoid it or hold it back for a couple of minutes? How about an enemy that can actually think & come out of nowhere for you. The number of times I panicked when I hear this thing dropping from a vent & making its creepy breath noise is... too many to count. I'm going to be cheeky with these next 2 because hey, the numbers fit 5) Devil May Cry 5 Easily the best Devil May Cry game at the moment. It plays how a Devil May Cry game should play, but 10 times better, and it has 2 of my favorite moments in the entire series, that being the Faust hat and the entire final battle. The only thing that will make this game better is the special edition that has Vergil & the girls. GIVE THEM TO ME PLEASE!!! 6) Resident Evil/ Biohazard 6 No, you're not hallucinating. I fucking love this game. I don't give a crap about the complaints people have about it, and those complaints are fixed anyway now that RE7 and the RE2 Remake put back the normal backtracking & puzzles to solve. Just for clarification, I love ALL the RE numbered games from 1 till 7. I played the crap out of these games and even played them all multiple times just after I beat them. I remember the very first time I played RE1 + RE2 & was scared by the zombies, but that's because I was 7 when I played those games. By the time the third game came, I was over it & just love the gameplay loop of collecting as much ammo as possible, mixing herbs, getting those lovely powered up guns & reserving the heavy weapons for the bosses. In fact, playing RE7 & the RE2 remake just makes me want to play RE6 again some more because I love how 6 just gives you so many tools to use to kill enemies. I prefer this game over any other generic third person cover based shooters because of that, specifically the Gears series since you only duck for cover & shoot for 80% of the time. And I especially love how in this game you can do the best move in the entire series: the counter attacks. This mechanic is fucking awesome. It is this game's version of the parry from Dark Souls, or hell, the perfect block from Sekiro + Jedi Fallen Order, and that for me makes all the damn difference. That coupled with the fun missions & actually useful friendly AI partner. I can never play RE 4 & 5 the same way again after this, especially because you have to babysit the ai partners that JUST WON'T STOP GETTING IN THE DAMN WAY, and that's why this game right now is one of my go-to "downtime" game whenever there's nothing to play before the next big game releases. Oh, and I don't think the people who complained about the lack of horror in this game are telling the truth, because RE 6 actually has a couple of scary moments thrown in, especially since it has the most underrated monsters in the entire series that STILL makes my skin crawl every time I fight them: THESE. THESE THINGS FUCKING SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME. And I HATE dealing with them! I rather deal with MR X & Nemesis an entire game than having to deal with them ever again! 7) Last of Us From one zombie game to the other, this one still stands the test of time as a really damn good stealth zombie, ahem I mean "fungus-infected people" game. I always thought of Joel as Sam Fisher if he lost his daughter in a zombie apocalypse because Sam in Splinter Cell Conviction is so much like Joel. I replayed this game through the remaster, and it is SO much better with the 60 fps. I can't wait for Last of Us part 2 & stealth kill some more infected + crazy survivalists! 8) 428 Shibuya Scramble Let that epic theme song sink in, because that's how you leave a lasting impact before you start a game. This game was released for Wii back in 2008 but only in Japan, but it was released in English on PS4 and Steam in 2018. And thank God it did because I get to put it on this list, and this game is FUCKING BRILLIANT! One of the absolute best visual novel ever, and it did the impossible: it's what happens when Plumbers Don't Wear Ties actually have a great story, music & cast of characters. I don't know how this game pulled it off, but it did! More people needs to experience this hidden gem! 9) Ace Attorney Dual Destinies This was the second game where the series' art style changed to 3D, first being Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright. And damn, the cell shaded graphics is still so damn good, that only Arc System Works manages to top the great visual artstyle with Dragonball Fighter Z & the upcoming Guilty Gear Strive. But not only is the graphics fantastic, the plot & cases in this game are also some of the best in the series ever. Its sequel Spirit of Justice is great, but the cases there have a couple of questionable parts that makes them less epic than the ones in Dual Destinies, which blew the damn roof. Especially the final case which still gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. WHEN IS THE NEXT ACE ATTORNEY GAME? I'M STILL WAITING HERE CAPCOM! 10) Dragonball Fighter Z By far the most fun fighting game I have played in my life, second to the Tekken fighting games. The many moments where I won where my health was just down to 1/10 against my opponents who still have all 3 of their characters are, MAN, intense as hell. This game changed my life. I loved the crap out of this game when it was out, and I'm still playing it today to train myself some more. I realized that I was pretty damn good at this game that I decided to enter tournaments here in Australia. I lost the first one I attended last year, but ever since then more & more tournaments showed up, and I keep on attending them to improve myself, winning a couple of them in the process. I even went to Las Vegas for EVO, and I had a damn great time in that place, while also being scared out of my mind because I had to play against the best players around the world. Got 64th out of 1200 people, so that's quite nice, but also not because the people I beat are surely going to aim for my head next time they meet me..... gulp. And recently I won 2019's last big major tournament here in Australia! Here's to 2020 & even more exciting moments with Dragonball Fighter Z! 11) DOOM This game is the most fun FPS game out there at this moment. Bringing the arcadeiness of Quake with so many great weapons to use & gory finishing moves is a brilliant idea. Now I can't fucking wait for Doom Eternal, which pissed me off that it was delayed after I tried it and loved it at PAX back in October 2019 GIVE DOOM ETERNAL TO ME NOW!!! 12) Tetris Effect The best Tetris in existence. It's Tetris made by the same guy that made Rez & Child of Eden, so expect a lot of psychedelic images thrown in your face while you try your damn hardest to make tetris blocks disappear. This is another downtime game I play now to get my mind going, and if I want to relax by looking at LSD drug trip imageries. XD 13) God of War PS4 They made Kratos, one of the biggest pieces of shits in gaming that I hate so much & want to see dead, be sympathetic & a good father....... I don't know how, but they did it. And this is certainly a great start to a new series taking place in an alternate Norse mythology. Hurry up and release the next game Sony, I want to battle Thor now!! 14) Fate Grand Order The best free mobile game I have ever played. I had been playing this game every day since it's English release in June 2017, and this game just keeps on getting better, and better, and better, AND IT'S GOING TO GET EVEN BETTER! All because Kinoko Nasu is a genius, and he makes damn sure that this game's plot is tightly written, full of great casts of characters from the previous Fate series + Kara no Kyoukai as well as new ones this game specifically creates, and be supported by its dev every chance they get. In fact one of the game's scenario is so good, that it's made into a beautiful anime of its own, which is still going & going to get even more epic: THIS is how you do a free game right, not just easy cash grabs that's quickly forgotten after just 1 hour of playing that most mobile games do till now! 15) AI Somnium Files The events of this game is still fresh from my mind & I will never forget the fun & sadness I had going through this game. It trumps above the Zero Escape series simply because of the much more realistic story that somehow brings a lot of heavy stuff, while also be quirky & silly in the right places. It's one of my GOTY for 2019, and it's for a damn good reason that I already mentioned in my review + previous post. I can't wait to see what's next for this game, if a sequel is made that is! 16) Persona 5 I still can't get this game's battle theme out of my head....... WHAT HAVE THIS GAME DONE TO ME??? They made an already excellent Persona 4 be even more awesome, with even faster + slicker combat, game areas that requires a lot of platforming + stealth, an equally great cast of characters, lots of which you can help + date because as a swanky playa you can totally do that lol, and a damn good plot to boot. Unfortunately the Persona 5 Royal update from what I saw in the Japanese version doesn't add a lot of new content, which is such a damn bummer because Persona 4 Golden added SO MUCH MORE, but the base Persona 5 game is still a fantastic game regardless. Hopefully there's another update like Persona 5 King edition, or maybe an Arcs fighting game because I want to see more from these casts of characters! 17) Sekiro + Dark Souls 3 These 2 are From Software at their utmost best. First they made Dark Souls 3 a DAMN great conclusion to a damn good series, and then they made the return of Tenchu with the best 1 vs 1 combat gameplay I have ever played. These 2 games have the best collections of bosses I have ever fought against. I love them so much that I fought them multiple times whenever I wanted to from a backup safe file. I am pretty sure the next Sekiro will have an even better boss battle ready for me to fight, and I CAN'T FREAKING WAIT TO FIGHT THEM! >‿< 18) Ryu Ga Gotoku Ishin + Ryu Ga Gotoku Kiwami 2 + Judgment I just can't separate these 3 games. They are all freaking brilliant. Ishin is the best out of the Ishin Yakuza 0 Yakuza 1 Kiwami era of games, Kiwami 2 is a DAMN good remake of the excellent PS2 game which improves on the Yakuza 6 gameplay immensely, and Judgment is just an awesome detective game that uses the strong base that Yakuza Kiwami 2 had already laid but with its own new minigames & detective twists. These games made me play them over and over again until I finished almost everything the game had to offer, and I'm going to do it again whenever I feel like it. Yakuza 5 is freaking awesome too, but these other 3 are more focused on their story & more cohesive in their gameplay, not to mention with less annoying load times, though to be fair that's because Yakuza 5 was on PS3. Maybe the remastered version will be infinitely better, and that's coming in February so I can't wait! 19) Undertale Fell in love with this game when I played it in 2015 that I actually put this as my GOTY instead of Witcher 3, and for good reason. Everything about this game is charming, and it subverts your expectation by making its turn based rpg combat exciting through its bullet hell dodging mechanics, and the plethora of variations that you can do whether or not your decide to be a complete jerk that kills everyone, or just be a good boy that defends himself only when there are no other choice. The bosses are fantastic, especially the final bosses, and the music, OH GOD THE MUSIC It's so fucking awesome that Kenny Omega even uses the songs in his wrestling entrances during a couple of his matches. TOBY FOX, YOU ARE A GENIUS!!! I completely refuse to do the no mercy run. I am though going to possibly return to this game again & play it all over again from square one because I'm sick of waiting for the finished Deltarune. There's so much unanswered question, I WANT TO SEE MORE!! And to top it all off: 20) Nier Automata This is undeniably Yoko Taro's & Platinum Games' best game to date. The first Nier was pretty boring, but the music & story are what kept me going through it all. This game on the other hand not only has really fun as hell gameplay that Platinum is known for, but also GODLIKE soundtrak and an amazing story that makes you question what it really means to be alive, and to not be a racist asshole especially among other beings that's also machines that has independent thoughts of their own. This game makes you have a lot of fun, but also cry from the depressing as hell moments, and in the end makes you feel really rewarded from sitting through the entire journey. By the time the end of the game gives me the option to delete my save file so I can help other players playing the game, I actually deleted it, and then play the game all over again. That is the mark of a truly legendary game. Well done Yoko Taro, you have made history! And those are my 20 personal favorite games of 2010 - 2019. Man, it sure was a great decade to enjoy these games & having them stick with me for this entire time. Let's see how 2020 and beyond will be, and see how far gaming will go. Who knows, maybe it'll be worse because of the amount of corporate greed all over the place, which is depressing, but even if it's like that, there will still be those games that are made with heart & passion that will stand the test of time & be reflected upon as great masterpieces that everyone will enjoy. Let us all hope for the best for the future!
  24. One of my mates showed me this. I......... I can't believe this is an actual video posted online by this company & they think it's actually acceptable. This has got to be a sick prank by them to ruin other people's PC after they follow the STUPIDASS instructions it provided. The beginning itself is already clear that everything is going downhill from then onwards: How the hell that instead of a normal screwdriver, this person recommends a SWISS ARMY KNIFE THAT HOPEFULLY HAS A SCREWDRIVER IN IT?? 😠😠😠 The best part is the highly exaggerated Chinese guy, who as it turns out, is purposefully talking that way cause that's his joke character voice. Normally he speaks like normal for other videos in his channel. "That's a Livestrong bracelet. He not fighting static, he fighting cancer." OMG that made me laugh so hard. XD
  25. 142) Aliens Colonial Marines Platform: PC Thanks PlasticFrog for giving this game to me because I requested it! It's not as bad as when Joe reviewed it, mostly because I use the mod ACM Overhaul that makes the aliens 10 times smarter and 3 times fast as hell, so they can pretty much kill you when you're not careful like they're supposed to. Unlike this: Basically as I expected, this game is an extended version of the marine campaign from Alien Vs Predator game back in 2010 minus the Predator with questionably ugly graphics, but for some reason, the shooting here feels like it's from Duke Nukem Forever, aka they lack a good kick that makes guns feels powerful. I don't get why they don't just use the same game engine as the AVP 2010 game, because that one is damn good! Still, it's fun when you use the legendary weapons you collected that belongs to Higgs, Vasquez etc from Aliens, and the mod makes the game challenging. I'm surprised that I actually collected almost every single collectible in the game in 1 playthrough, and only missed 1 dog tag which I finally got after finishing the final level. Why the hell isn't the final battle a power loader brawl?? The Raven chapter had it, so why not this?? It could've been dumb fun trying to do punch out with the Queen! It is quite a shame that there's no sequel yet, because I quite want to see what's next, considering that this story is canon, or maybe not anymore because it's so hated. All the dev needs to do is use the AVP 2010 game engine to make shooting good, have more Aliens battle with adequate ai, and have 2 playable characters: 1 as a marine, and another as a survivalist, and make the survivalist section be like Alien Isolation where the alien is so damn smart, that you will shit yourself scared trying to get away from it! 143) Judgment Platform: PS4 Since Yakuza 7 isn't out in Japan until 16 January, and because that game is a turn based RPG, and even if I get the game on my Singapore PSN account I won't be able to read a damn thing since it's in Chinese, Judgment is a great replacement for my Ryu Ga Gotoku December fun tradition. Which is great because this version changed the actor who played Hamura, so it's like I'm playing a new game. Kind of. I played it when it's in Chinese with the original title Judge Eyes in 2018, and I brute force that one. Now that the game is in English, I enjoyed this game 10 times more. Primarily because I finally understand everything, especially the various side stories. It's still so damn good from the combat alone, but now the stories from both main story & side stories just got amplified. I also feel guilty because I as it turns out, there's 1 side story where I just did it as told in the Chinese version, but turns out I was actually assisting a psycho stalker. So now that I know that, I whooped his ass & feel good about doing the right thing. And you know what, now that I think about it, Judgment has the best story out of all the Ryu Ga Gotoku series. This is a damn good detective plot, and made even better because of the Ryu Ga Gotoku quirky silliness sprinkled within that makes every character & story moments enjoyable to go through. They did a great job here & I can't wait to see how Judge Eyes 2 starts its new chapter! Fittingly, since this is a detective game, this game makes me rethink my thought about Disco Elysium. I think this game made Disco Elysium even worse now. I like that game, but overall that game is pretty much an homage to classic tabletop rpgs with a detective theme put in, and while it's very unique with its world lore & characters, especially how your body organ speaks to you, it doesn't make me want to play it again. It's quite annoying that there's only 1 part of the game that has actual life and death situation, and that's 1 part before the end of the game. I know that the whole game can kill you because you can fail a Fallout esque skill check, but that's not even an actual challenge because all you do in the game is save scum & let the dice roll until it reaches above the required percentage, which I did many times. This is quite funny, but finishing that game is like being free from hypnosis, for some reason. I enjoyed my entire time with that game, but once I finished it I don't want to go back to it. That game feels like a prologue to something bigger that's coming in the even better sequel I'm sure of it, while Judgment put everything in full force for the plot & setting which makes the game a complete package + even more from all the great minigames. I was considering putting Disco Elysium as my top 10 best game of 2019, but Judgment stole the spot, like an assassin striking at the perfect moment. A game that definitely will be 10 times better in the future shouldn't be put to my top 10, because that'll be unfair to the other games that definitely deserves it.
