    Actually there's a global event coming up in December 15 - 16 called Couch Warriors Crossup.
    https://www.couchwarriors.org/category/couchwarriors-crossup/
     
    It's a big worldwide Dragonball FighterZ tournament which I will take part in, which also has other fighting game tournaments to join in. Buut since it's coming soon, I'm guessing you don't have the time for it, and it's probably not your kind of event if you don't play fighting games. Australia always waits for newcomers, so feel free to come any time you want.  
  3. Lazilot liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Fallout 76 Angry Review   
    Good thing I don't bother with this game cause I know it's just online Fallout 4. But I didn't expect this game to be worse than Elder Scrolls Online and Sea of Thieves. Holy shit what a FUCKING DISASTER! These many bugs?? This lazy of a content?? This is pretty much No Man's Piece of Crap, or Metal Gear Boring Zombie Fest, only it's by Bethesda. That's like if the MCU actually made Fantastic Four 2015 instead of Fox! 
     
    On the bright side, I laugh hard at this review. And Doom Eternal + Rage 2 will be even better than this crap. Maybe the teams are busy making those games and decided to give Fallout 76 to interns. Which is just fucking sad but it's the most logical explanation for this whole shit. People definitely should get a refund for this game, which unfortunately Bethesda didn't approve of. Dick move there.

    No, GOTY for 2018 is not God of War, Spiderman PS4 or Red Dead Redemption 2. THIS IS:
    The spinoff of the Yakuza series is looking magnificent. These are 80% new heat action for this game, and only 20% from previous Yakuza. And that's not counting potential new heat moves, duo heat moves and the fuckload of minigames + detective investigations to do! Coming December 13 in Asian countries, and I will pre order this game. It'll be in chinese and I won't understand a thing BUT I DON'T CARE! I can actually get the first chapter of this game now, but I have to buy PS Plus for that which I don't want to do. I WANT THE FULL GAME NOW!!!!

    I recently completed the first game after 1 year of not playing it. Glad I finally finished that game. 
     
    Good news is the fans of the game made an english patch right here
     
     
     
    This next song is from one of the best Metroidvania games to ever feature a Luchadore, Guacamelee 2. Recenly released in August & no one besides me and a few others talked about it. WHY? THIS GAME IS AWESOME!
     
     
    And this one is from the, MUAH, byoutiful surprise release that was Deltarune. Aka Undertale 2, or 0 I don't know. But what I do know is the music is still fucking phenomeally good!
     
    Unfortunately this is only chapter 1 and the full game is not out until an undetermined time. ARRGHHH!!!! I WANT THE FULL VERSION NOW!!

    What's more obscure than that PSP exclusive sequel to Valkyria Chronicles that so few people in America played it basically killed the series over here and WE'LL NEVER SEE AN OFFICIAL ENGLISH RELEASE OF VALKYRIA CHRONICLES III BECAUSE OF IT!? *Ahem*... but seriously I do love this game and it's music. Hitoshi Sakimoto is a fucking god!

    And because of that, the upcoming Wolf Among Us season 2 and Stranger Things are unfortunately cancelled. Then again, it's to be expected. After the awesome Tales from the Borderlands, they've been releasing licensed games that has mixed reviews like Batman, Walking Dead Season 3, Guardians of the Galaxy and Minecraft Story mode, and these games quite frankly I don't give a crap about because I know that these are just another Walking Dead with a face lift where your choices doesn't matter in the long run. Where's Monkey Island? Sam and Max? Puzzle Agent?? Actual game titles not based on licensed TV shows/ Movies/ Minecraft with puzzles?_? The unfortunate thing is Wolf Among Us & Walking Dead Season 4 are going to be a sure hit, but unfortunately we won't see Bigby, Snow White and the other guys we like from the first season after this. 
     
    My condolences for all the employees that got laid off. I wish they will go to greener pastures. As for Walking Dead Season 4, I hope it will end in a satisfying way.

  9. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in My second major Fighting Game tournament, and that moment in the internet when you become a living meme......   
    So I've been playing a lot of Dragonball FighterZ till now. After my last major tournament BAM10 which I put here

    I've been going to small monthly tournaments in Melbourne which goes every third Saturday of the month. I've placed 3rd, 5th & 2nd in the last 3 monthly tournaments, and it's not until I used Discord that I finally realized that I am actually a meme.  Everyone in the Australian DBFZ FGC called me either "Agent Numbers", "Agent Chaos" or "Agent Salt" because my play style makes people throw off their game plan and salty afterwards. Apparently from what I heard, I "play this game so dumb, but somehow I keep on winning." LOL, man, that's the most interesting description I have ever heard. And I assure everyone in Discord that the salt was unintentional so I apologized for those that got salty.  
     
    And just yesterday, I entered the next big fighting game tournament in Melbourne named Melbourne Esports Open.

    Lots of people actually came to this place to play Fortnite. When I tried to enter the arena to get to my Dragonball FighterZ tournament, everyone's like "hey, where's the Fornite arena?" Damn, that game took off like crazy! PUBG is left in the dust now!
     
    I was unable to enter the tournament arena until 11 am, and I was in the place from 9 am, so I went "Game On" section of the building where I get to play and see upcoming games.
     
    Like the Ori sequel

     
    Spiderman PS4 which I instantly pre ordered because it's $10 off normal price if I buy it there, and the game is as I expected, pretty much an even better Amazing Spiderman

     
    Starlink which has Fox as a playable character, which makes this game better than the Star Fox Wii U

    Ace Combat 7 which is a trip back to the past because it plays very much like the old Ace Combat games

     
    And Soul Calibur 6 with the full roster revealed. Which has Raphael and Cervantes that doesn't have their own character trailer yet. So yay! I get to know it first!

     
    After playing around with these games, I finally entered my Dragonball FighterZ tournament, while hanging out with my mates that I know from BAM10 & the monthly tournaments. Like I said in BAM10, these are nice guys. But I'm especially surprised by one of the participants named RaptR who's also there.
     
    RaptR is actually a really famous Dragonball youtuber who uses Hit 
     
    I played a lot of matches with him online with my battle name "Determinationftw", until I beat him often that he dodged me. Then I went to his Twitch Stream and say sorry for making him mad at me, and he's like "oh sorry man, it's my fault for being salty." And we're all good. Until I beat him in his stream and he went salty again.  
     
    He had no idea that I am actually Determinationftw, so when I met him in person I just play with him like normal without saying who I am. When he was about to leave the event though, I finally told him who I am online, and he's like "WHAT?? HOLY SHIT!!" then we're all good. It was the funniest thing.
     
    So my first couple of matches went pretty swimmingly. I beat 2 other players, one who actually beat me in one of the monthly tournaments. Then I realized that the next opponent that I have to go up against is Baxter. 
     
    AKA the number 1 Dragonball FighterZ player in Australia & the BAM10 champion. You bet your ass I am scared for my life when I found that out.
     
    How did the match go? Well......... there's no youtube video of it yet, but there is a twitch stream you can watch. My match starts at min 54
    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/304390387##
    I have no idea how I even pulled that off. Like....... that match forced me to just go fucking nuts. WITH TEEN GOHAN, AKA one of the WORST character to do a solo! It was so intense that everyone went crazy, from the Twitch stream chat, to the commentators and to the other players watching our match! Especially Sketch, the guy that beat me at BAM10 and eliminated me from the tournament. Holy shit what a match.
     
    Then after that, I finished 3rd place! Not bad. First at BAM10 I somehow finished rank 13th, now at this event I moved up.

     
    All in all, what an amazing time I had. Now I'm more motivated to do better at the next monthly tournaments! And I guess Baxter has experienced the Agent Salt meme.  
     
    My hat is off the the 1st place winner though. His name is Zed, also from Melbourne and we went to the same monthly hangouts. He also beat Baxter, and it is a well deserved victory! Not only that, but before this, he won a ticket to any of the Dragonball FighterZ worldwide tournament from fighting other Australian players online on PS4 last Tuesday, which means you'll definitely see him soon in the other tournaments, and maybe see him beat GO1 and SonicFox. He is a force to be reckoned with I tell ya, watch out for him!
  10. ProfessorGodLike liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Awesome obscure game music & hidden well known game music thread.   
    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

    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.

    After that, just paste the link, download the song and its all yours. Have fun!
  11. Lazilot liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in EVO's fighting game character announcements: wtf are these???   
    So Evo 2018 is finally coming to a close. Lots of fighting game players eliminated, a lot of salt, a lot of upsets & a lot of hype as hell moments. And also a couple of fighting game announcements for the future.
     
    Last year we got Tekken 7's Geese as the best announcement ever. Tekken became Godlike when he's in it.
     
    This year we got the DLCs for upcoming games that are expected to come, like Cooler + Base Goku + Base Vegeta,
     The other plethora of characters for Blazblue Cross Tag
     
    The rest of the teased characters coming to Fighting EX Layer + Terry Bogard
    Which btw isn't the only game with Terry as an announcement
     
    Astaroth and Seong Mi-Na for Soul Calibur 6, which is to be expected
    Waiting for Raphael, Cassandra, Cervantes and Yun-seong to show up.....
     
    And the other 2 characters coming for Street Fighter 5
     
    G can't be more like Uncle Sam even if he tried, and Sagat is just fucking awesome. AND THEY'RE OUT TOMORROW! HOLY SHIET I'M GONNA GET SAGAT!!
     
    But the most unexpected announcements this year are definitely these:
    ..............................................................
     
     
    Ok...... why is Terry in SNK Heroines gender bent?? And why just him?? Remember that ALL the guys in SVC Chaos got gender bent too by Demitri
    BTW love the fact that everyone who doesn't have upper shirts suddenly got one & Mai suddenly got a kimono to cover her cleavage.  
    This is official: Terry's got his harem as the lone dude in the game. That should have been me damn it!
     
    Nonononono I don't want to turn into a girl to be with them! 
     
    Ahem, moving on....
     
    NEGAN??? WTF??? Is this Walking Dead's way to boost their ratings after knowing full well that their show is becoming worse and worse with every new season?? Because that's just sad, though intriguing. Why him though?? Why not Wesker or Chris, or Leon? Or any of the girls from Resident Evil/ Biohazard??? They're much better fits!

    What an awesome fan film!  Perfectly cast, it's got all the witty dialogue, sense of adventure, the cinematography is perfect and it has such a level of polish that you don't see in most fan films. I hope that Sony is taking notice and do a Deadpool by just giving the makers of this a budget and then staying out of it.  That quality for 2 hours and you have best video game adaptation of all time!

  14. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in There's an Uncharted Fan Film, starring Nathan Fillion. PERFECT CASTING!!   
    Funny thing is Drake is definitely based on Nathan Fillion. So Nathan Fillion is actually just playing himself. The circle is now complete. Interesting choice for Sully though. I thought Tom Hanks will be PERFECT after that film that's also named Sully

    But probably budget can't take him, so the colonel from Avatar will do. Or the blind guy from Don't Breathe if you want to get obscure. 
     
    I can totally see this film being part of Uncharted. This probably takes place between 2 & 3 since Nathan still has his ring. Love that there's a "third person shooter" style cam shot just like the game, and Nathan even fights using the moves in the game, like the enzuigiri! This director is totally a huge fan of the games! I want this to become either a Netflix or Youtube Red series. It's fucking perfect. Goes to show that fans of the games can make a good video game movie, instead of movie makers that keeps on ruining games with their films.

  16. DoctorEvil liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in The Painscreek Killings obscure game review. Murder mystery done awesomely.   
    Steam Sales time, and I got this game to tinker around with for only $5. Wow, what an unexpectedly great game!

    In this game, you're playing as a journalist named Janet Kelly who is tasked with investigating the murder of woman named Vivian Roberts, the wife of the mayor of Painscreek who was found dead in front of her home. You just have to find out 3 simple things:
    1) Who killed her
    2) What's the murder weapon
    3) Take a great photo for the article
    You have to explore the town of Painscreek for your answers. Luckily for you, the entire town is deserted completely because everyone moved away after the murder shook the entire town, so you're free to explore the town at your own leisure. You'll discover bits and pieces of what truly happened in this town until you finally reach the ultimate truth, and boy oh boy, what an awesome story this game has. 
     
    The gameplay is actually very 90s adventure esque in that you will search every nook and cranny everywhere to find objects which contains a keycode to unlock a desk/padlock/box, tools to open something & keys to open doors to important people's houses. Unlike Walking Sims nowadays where you just walk all day, you actually have to release your inner detective and solve a lot of puzzles while also go around to different places once you found the necessary item needed to progress to the next step of your investigation. The game doesn't hold your hands, so you have to manually figure out codes to puzzles & where to put keys in their right spots. Ahhhh, the good old days of puzzle solving. You will definitely feel good once you unlock a door in this game as it will most likely lead you towards the next step of your investigation, which initially starts off quite tame, until you found notes belonging to a private detective named Steve Moss that really reveals a lot of cool stuff that turns a simple "find out who murdered this person" plot to "wtf is going on in this town???"
     
    Depending on how much of a puzzle lover you are, you can complete the game in 5 - 7 hours if you want to solve the mystery of this game. Or you can just get out of town by car/ walking if you want to end the game early, in which case you'll be fired, unless you took a blind guess & got the right answer by chance. But that ain't fun am I rite??? The coolest thing is that if you actually managed to find who the true culprit is, the game doesn't just end with "mission complete". Oh hell no. The final section of the game will send chill down your spine. I panicked so hard that I immediately pause the game and have to take a break. I calmed down afterwards but damn, I wasn't expecting that!
     
    The only negative I can say about this game other than once you beat the game you know the whole plot and may not want to play it again is that there's a lot of backtracking just to find different keys required to get new info & enter the next area. For example:
     
    I have to find a key to a glove compartment in a car. To get that key, I have to go to an inn and read a memo inside a room. But to get the key required to enter the room, I have to go to so many different places, enter a sewer to get to the location where the key is, find the key in a morgue, get inside the room which has a memo that tells me the code to the police station desk, which finally give me the key to the glove compartment. This happens surprisingly often with other stuff. I'm having fun doing it though because each progress I made rewards me with more info on the plot of the game.
     
    Get this game right now while it's $5 on Steam sale, if you're a fan of mystery games and don't mind a lot of backtracking that is. It's a great detective game that makes you do actual detective work, with a great plot to cap it all off & a satisfying end at the end of it all, even if it's quite depressing. I give this game my rating of "so damn good that it released the inner Sherlock Holmes within me."
     
  17. Arreyanne liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Middle-earth: Shadow of War review. More of the first game. Like it or not, depends on you.   
    Now then. Before I go through how the gameplay of this game is, I'm going to address 2 things that I heard so much about regarding this game:
    1) The loot boxes. Are they required, or are they just there?

    Don't worry about this thing. These loot + war chests are not important at all. All of the chests just give you random items + followers, who for most of the time are less powerful than the ones you get in the game and for most of the time in the case of followers, can be converted into gears, and for the items you can just convert them into silver coins, which are actually the currency you use to unlock gem slots for your weapons, upgrade your followers and upgrade your strongholds in the main game. Just by playing the game and fucking around, you can get a lot of silvers and gears.
     
    You don't need to pay real money to get the gold currency required to buy them. You can actually get gold by doing challenges which change each day, like "kill captains using execution moves" or "kill a vendetta target" that sort of thing. 
     
    As for the stories that people say about how the final Act 4 requires you to buy the loot crate? Not true at all. You know what the last act of the game is? It's a 10 stage "defend your fort" missions that consists of 20+ fort defense missions. If you actually have a strong defense and a lot of high leveled orcs guarding the fort, there is no need to actually buy any of the crate. You can just play the missions normally. Well.... except when you got killed by an orc with a "no chance" perk on them, which means if you get attacked by these guys, you'll automatically lose the mission and you have to take over the fort back. But luckily taking over the fort is easy since there's only 1 orcs guarding each defense posts, and you can sabotage the defense by completing a mission before the takeover.
     
    2) What of the game's ending? Is it going to turn people away?
    I did say this back when the gameplay trailer was announced
    If you are familiar with the Lord of the Rings lore, you pretty much will know that as long as the One Ring exists, Sauron will always return in the end. Plus having a Ring of Power with you will fuck you up in many form and corrupt you. As demonstrated by the many2 people that got consumed by the ring
    Not to mention, it's officially confirmed that this game is a prequel to the original Lord of the Rings trilogy films, so you know what that means. I heard that people hated the ending. And since I completed the game, I have one thing to say:
     
    Why?? The ending is perfect! It's very lore accurate and it's not a cliffhanger ending like the previous game. Hell, by the end of the game I actually felt satisfied with how everything ends and ties up to the LOTR trilogy films. I even watched the Return of the King again after playing the game and it flows perfectly. This is bold for me to say I know, but this game is a much better prequel than MGSV Phantom Pain, because that game tries to have a twist that may look cool, but just leaves a lot of questions afterward. This game on the other hand is a good prequel that ties to the film really well. And I am dead. Fucking. Serious.
     
    Now that those 2 things are out of the way, let's get straight to what this game is about. It's a straight sequel to the first game and begins after Talion + Celebrimbor created a new ring of power to counter Sauron's own ring (BAD IDEA). Basically they both met Shelob, you know, this spider in the film
    For some reason she can turn herself into a hot chick here. She took the new ring to herself, and then after 8+ hours of gameplay, you finally get the ring back and you're able to create your own personal orc army. 
     
    Like I said, this game has more of what's in the first game. Which if you're not familiar with the first game, it's a game that's quite like a mixture of Assassin's Creed with the Batman Arkham games. You can parkour around the environment to do stealth kills, you can fight many orcs at once with your close combat prowess, and best of all, you can mind control enemy captains to work with you and you can order them to do many things, like infiltrate the enemy ranks and backstab high ranked orcs, pick a fight with other orcs, or just straight up blow their brains out. It's all up to you!
     
    In this game there's more combat moves to unlock, more areas to conquer, more collectibles to collect, more enemy types and more orc varieties to destroy or mind control, each with their own delicious characterizations. One time, I even fought an orc named Dûsh, and true to his name, he trash talks a lot, and when I am close to finishing him off, he ran away like a chicken. What a prick!
    And I found Kumail Nanjiani in the game.
    And I even made him commander of a fort. He has a couple of funny lines in the game, but a lot of the other orcs also have funny ass lines that makes me chuckle. You'll never know what sort of orcs you will encounter in the game.

    The gear system has been changed compared to the first. It uses Diablo/ Nioh loot system where you get gears that has different rarities, purple is the best since it gives a lot of buffs, and increases in levels each time you progress through the game. Each gear outside of the common ones have different challenges to them, so if you complete that particular challenge, you can level the gear up further. It also has a gem system which lets you insert 3 gem types to each gear to give them different benefits. Red is all about attack power, green is about health and white is XP related. You can put different gems to each gears and see which combination you like best.
     
    A couple of the collectibles in the game have neat minigames. There's a "cleanse a Sauron Tower" which lets you do a "spot these hidden objects in the world map" minigame, a "collect Shelob's past memories" minigame which lets you do an optical illusion puzzle, and there's ones that requires you to do this.... weird poem minigames. You have to collect 6 words scattered around the map. Once you collect them all, you're able to go into a door, and you have to assemble those 6 words into the poems.

    It's a neat brain teaser, and once you solve it, you're given a legendary gear for yourself. Of course the gears themselves will most likely be under leveled compared to the gear that you have after playing the game for hours already, but it's a nice collectible nonetheless. 
     
    Oh yes, about the army creator + stronghold attack section. Is it like the trailer?
    Of course not! You can't just press a button to execute an enemy that easily.
     
    But for the other cool shit that happens? Yes. Most of them at least. You take over forts by going to different capture points and stay there until it's taken over. That gate thing at the start is not in the game, though maybe that's because the forts I took over isn't the one in the trailer. I took over forts that has ballista graugs instead. Enemies that you killed will come back from the dead. That drake thing is awesome when you use it for yourself. And thankfully that fire drake machine death can be avoided if you play espionage and cripple the enemy defenses by eliminating the warlords.
     
    All things considered, the game does get repetitive once you put 30+ hours into the game. It's the same thing as the first game in that you will be repeating a lot of missions and replace a lot of orc officers to get a better army. If you're fine with that, then that's cool. You'll enjoy this game a lot. Until the last act of the game since it's just a string of 20+ fort defense missions. They should just reduce it to only 10 so it doesn't overstay its welcome. Luckily like I said, it ends satisfyingly in that it directly ties to the LOTR trilogy film in the end,

    and it ends happily. With a pretty sweet end credits song to top it all off. 
    And a pretty sweet remembrance to that Michael David Forgey guy who unfortunately passed away but got remembered through an in game character based on him.


     
    Do I recommend this game? Oh yes. If you love the first game and want more of it that is. But the end game will get repetitive, so beware of that. It's like eating at a 5 star buffet. You'll have so many to eat and it'll make you full if you eat too much. If you hate or don't like the first game, unfortunately this game isn't for you. Better skip this game if that's the case.
     
    I give this game the rating of "take over Mordor with your army and conquer everything again and again, but beware that it'll get annoying during the last act of the game. Though in the end, you'll leave the game satisfied."

    Joe never play old games before starting a sequel in a series he’s never played before. Just like he never played ALL the Yakuza games from 1 till 5 before playing Yakuza 0, or never played Uncharted 1 - 3 before playing 4. But he will definitely do his research into the game’s lore to prepare himself so that’s good. I mean even I have a couple of games where I just played the latest games in the series, but I do my research on the past games first.
     
    Like right now while I’m preparing myself for Kingdom Hearts 3 all these years, I youtube all the games after Kingdom Hearts 2 because I only played 1 and 2, and I don’t play all the PSP 3DS mobile Remaster games because:
     
    1) they’re too time consuming
    2) they have WAYY too much side characters & plot to keep track of that’s easier to track by looking at an abridged explanation
    3) FUCK the script filled with so many lame heart stuff like “I will never let you take her heart”, “his heart is inside my heart” and of course,
    So Sora, you can perform open heart surgery and throw your heart to Xehanort?HAHAHAHAHAHA my God these dialogues are CRINGEWORTHY! Love the awesome slick gameplays but damn, these dialogues are..... they’re something alright.
     
    Joe’s gonna have a field day researching this series. That is if he does indeed review the game and not skip it. So to that guy that sent the game to Joe, sorry but most likely Joe will not play the game. Best case scenario is he’ll give it to Delrith or OJ for them to play?? 
     
     
    Ah yes, if anyone wants to prepare for KH3 but doesn’t want to play the games before it, I suggest looking at this channel for a good summary of the previous games, starting from KH1. 
     
    He did great series analysis on the Drakengard & Nier games before Nier Automata, so we’re in good hands.

    It's new year already in the island of Samoa Apia. Still 9:30 pm here in Australia but Happy new year nonetheless!
     
    2016 is over. We got No Man's Piece of Dogshit, games that has the balls to just finish their games on a cliffhanger or a horrible ending, looking at you Mirror's Edge, Dying Light Following and Mankind Divided, 
     
    but we also got Uncharted 4, DOOM, Overwatch, Furi, Watch Dogs 2 and Final Fantasy XV among other good games too. 
     
     
    Let us wish the best for 2017, starting with Kingdom Hearts 2.8, Gravity Rush 2, Yakuza 0 and Resident Evil 7. Oh and Danganronpa V3 if you're in japan. Can't wait for these games!!
  21. ProfessorGodLike liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Delrith's Lords of the Fallen written review!   
    Nice review Del! Straightforward and easy to follow. From what I see this game's basically a singleplayer Dark Souls but with more weapon customization, and skill trees that would have been awesome if you can use 3 of them at once instead of restricted in 1 playthrough. Now I'm interested in buying the game later when it's cheap!
    One question, did you experience any bugs or glitches during the game? I saw a playthrough of someone playing this game on PS4 and the guy has encountered 7 hilarious game breaking bugs and glitches.
  22. Crazycrab liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Cyberpunk 2077, a futuristic, mature, open world, RPG....... FPS?   
    Well, after YongYea & Joe saw the game in action,
    "It is my believe that Cyberpunk 2077 is better off being a first person game. I was a skeptic, and I was converted after seeing the full demo in action"
    "It was so mindblowing, that I didn't think it was real". 
     
    Holy crap! That's pretty damn cool that everything in the game are in real time with integrated seamless menu, which is totally Dead Space esque but better because it's in first person view, and when you're upgrading yourself and getting an eye upgrade, your eye gets removed from your head and you see through that removed eye. Maybe when I get my hands on this game I will just drive cars in first person, but if it's better in third person I'll use that instead.
     
    Whatever the next Adam Jensen Deus Ex game will be just fucking lost the damn FPS RPG war. This is the absolute pinnacle of the games that Deus Ex are. Well, I give Deus Ex the edge since they have the badass social boss battle which I love really much, and the badass takedowns.
    ARRGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I WANT TO FUCKING SEE THAT DEMO DAMN IT! GIVE ME THIS GAME TO ME RIGHT NOW!!! 
  23. ProfessorGodLike liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Kingdom Hearts 3 new trailer. Well, this is a trip back memory lane.   
    Oh. My. God........... Tiger Electronic games.
    Good thing AVGN isn't involved with Channel Godawful, or else I wouldn't show this vid anymore.  
     
    I remember these overhyped plastic "portable consoles". I even have a game watch at one point. 
     
    I have a question: WHY IS SORA HAPPY PLAYING IT?? That's bullshit man! These things are only fun for 10 minutes, and then they got stale really quick! He should be throwing that console up in the air, and then air juggle it with his keyblade!  
  24. ProfessorGodLike liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in E3 2018 EA press conference thread.   
    Since there's no E3 thread this year, yet, I'll start this E3 discussion first with, quite frankly, a bland press conference by EA.
    There's just almost nothing that sparks my interest here. Except Unravel 2 which I like because the first game has Braid esque wonderful soundtrack with a really cute yarn guy to play as, AND IT'S AVAILABLE TODAY!! WOHOO, FINALLY SOMEONE ACTUALLY DID WHAT I WANT FROM E3 ALL THESE YEARS!! Sucks that the crowds are not as enthusiastic as I am since that's the only great thing about this conference.
     
    As for the rest, it's pretty much what we all expect: Battlefield V which is thankfully going to be better than Black Ops 3 because it has both singleplayer and battle royale, Sea of Solitude which looks decent, all the sports games which I don't give a shit about, I NEED MY STREETS GAMES BACK DAMN IT!
     
    Command And Conquer on mobile............... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
     
    And Anthem. Which doesn't interest me at all. And it's pretty much like what I imagined it to be: another "action rpg loot fest" game. The gameplay has convinced me further that it's so much like Warframe, but a lot more generic. So I rather play Warframe again instead. And that game is free! With open world + buttload of other missions + activities to enjoy!
     
    Urrrrrrghhhhhhhh. What a deflating way to start E3. But the good news is IT'S GONNA GET BETTER! Ubisoft, EA, Nintendo, Devolver, maybe Square Bethesda and Microsoft, good luck boyz! Blow our socks off!
  25. ProfessorGodLike liked a post in a topic by Kaz32 in Persona 5 US reviews are in.   
    We all know that Persona 5 was originally released back in Japan September 15 2016 to enormously fucking good scores in Japan. And now, this game has been played by reviewers everywhere outside of japan, with these as their scores:
    IGN 9.7/10 GamesRadar GameSpot 9/10 OPM (UK) 10/10 Polygon 9/10  
    Damn those lucky reviewers and their early review copies. 
     
    Also fun fact: this game is the highest rated PS4 2017 game on Metacritic right now with 94, beating Horizon Zero Dawn's 8.9 and Nier Automata/ Nioh's 8.8. Sure it's not as high as Zelda, but we all know that Zelda only got that high of a score because Nintendo paid those people $$$ to give the game 10s up the ass even though the game is more like a 9.5 or 9 if you see the weapons breaking easily, the alright plot that's basically the same as previous Zelda games and even the Master Sword needing to recharge after use as detriments to the game.
     
    Man, I can't wait to finally grab this game, upgrade my social links up the ass, do good in school exams, be the ultimate chick magnet and get every girl I can date to my side! And of course get every single summons in the game like Jack Frost because, well, you gotta have Atlus' mascot character with you in battle for good luck.

    Such a shame that Dante is still only in Nocturne and not available as a special summons in any of the Persona games....
     
    Point is: I can't stand this waiting anymore!!!GIVE ME PERSONA 5 NOW!!!!
