Me and my brother are looking for a coop game to play. These are the requirements: RPG (Else I wouldnt have been here, Im smart) Storyline Open-world (Preferable, but not required) Medieval (Sword, bows, axes and such, not guns) NOT SIDESCROLLER OR TOPDOWN (I am aware that there are such games that fits the bill, but not what we're after) Thanks in advance for all help
I don't know if this is the right place, but hell, I'm posting this here anyway. A game I've been playing since it's Open Beta release back in 2013, Warframe, has substantial potential of being one of the biggest games of all time. Now, the game revolves around you being a space ninja, killing dozens of (sadly not very varied) enemies in the most brutal ways possible. I really love the game, despite some of it's flaws like it's glitchiness at times, also it has a gigantic grind aspect, like Destiny, and not much story, but it is slowly progressing and adding story elements. But that's compensated in the game being Free-To-Play, unlike Destiny. But that is not why I'm here today, if you want to know more, you are free to try it for yourselves, or watch some reviews and gameplay of it. What I'm here today for is that I wonder if Joe should try the game, possibly giving us a Review of it, or at least making a Vlog on what he thinks about it in general. I also want to find a group of people with whom I can play with, because playing the game alone is not that fun at all, probably even outright boring to some, such as myself, at times. I think people who appreciate Shooters and Hack-and-slash games might like it, even enjoy it. I'm just giving an over-the-top explanation of the game here, and am hoping to get some replies on what people think about the game and if there's anyone interested in playing it, in the Europe region of course (game is region restricted, sadly). Anyway, that's what I wanted to say and I hope you aren't too harsh on me. Tootles.
Kaz32 posted a topic in Written Reviews & PreviewsI just finished this game, and I am pleasantly surprised at how the game turns up in the end. This is Shadow Warrior, the reboot of the 1997 Duke Nukem esque shooter of the same name. The game stars Lo Wang, an assassin employed by the corporation Zilla Enterprises, who is assigned by his boss to get the sword named "Nobitsura Kage" from this Japanese yakuza named Miyazaki. Of course and that pretty much means killing everyone in sight. However, he was heavily outnumbered and he was imprisoned by the enemy. Luckily for him, demons suddenly come to earth and he escapes in the middle of the madness, and during his escape he makes an ally with a rogue demon named Hoji who lost his memory. They both must find the "Nobitsura Kage", which is actually separated into 3 different parts to return Hoji's memory and save the world from the demon invasion, or so it seems. Now on with the gameplay. The game is actually similar to a game like Serious Sam, where you have several weapons at your disposal like pistol, machine gun, crossbow, rocket launcher, and you have to just wreck every enemy that stands in your way. Unlike Serious Sam or other similar fps shoot em up games, you also have a katana with you that has neat abilities. This katana is most definitely the best weapon in the entire game and you will use this weapon the most. If you have played Red Steel 2, it's mostly the same thing with the swordplay, except you can't block with your sword or slice in a particular direction that you want and there's fucktons of gore and decapitations. You can gain abilities like a sword thrust, a 360 sword attack that slices enemies around you, and the coolest attack of them all is this sword ki attack similar to anime attacks where a sword slice produces this wave of energy that slices enemies from a distance. Through upgrades, each of these sword abilities will allow you to gain a portion of your health, and you'll need it once you get far into the game. The game has a skill tree based on 3 things: upgrades for your weapons, character attributes and ki abilities. You upgrade your weapons by using money that's spread out through the game. Character attributes are upgraded after you gain enough karma points from killing enemies which you can use to increase ammo drop, increase stamina or increase health. Ki abilities are upgraded after you find ki crystals that you can find scattered throughout 17 chapters in the game, and this is where you upgrade and acquire abilities like the sword attacks I mentioned before, self-healing ability, shield, force push that's not really that useful and this levitation ki attack where you punch the ground producing a forward shockwave that make enemies float. By the end of the game, you will acquire the last part of the Nobitsura Kage, and after that you'll not want to use any other weapons in the game. I mean just look at this beast! Usually those enemies took quite a lot of guns and swords to kill, but with the beefed up sword? They eat shit after just 1 second! This game is filled with so much jokes and easter eggs to other games. For example: there's fortune cookies everywhere, and some of the fortunes told are based on movies like the Karate Kid or Highlander. Most of the fortunes are pretty much just hilariously stupid nonsense, like "time is an illusion. Lunchtime is not". Or "Good news: you're not paranoid. Bad news: everyone's trying to kill you." In some parts of the game, you'll see the original Shadow Warrior areas with all it's old school pixelated glory, including the anime girls taking bubble baths. There's 3 arcade machines that's from Serious Sam, Hard Reset and Hotline Miami. If you insert a coin to each, you'll hear some of the songs that are in that game. Sadly you can't hear them in battle because you have to be close to them. That's a missed opportunity right there. Wouldn't it be awesome if you can modify the in game song to have Serious Sam's War while slicing demons? Or even this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYLxlIF7Wn0 Wang and Hoji has funny banters throughout the game too which will make you chuckle. Surprisingly though, once you get to the 2/3 part of the game, all the humor in the game are mostly gone. The game's plot suddenly takes a serious tone, and by the end of the game it feels dramatic and sad. It's like Moulin Rouge but more funny and more well done. I did not expect the game to have such a good story, and I won't spoil it because you have to experience it yourself. One drawback that this game has is that the music are mostly just the same. There's little variety in the soundtrack until you get to the end of the game. Also like Serious Sam or Dynasty Warriors, the game feels repetitive because it's mostly just you wasting enemies again and again until the end, so you might need to skip the game for a few days to be ready to play it again. However, if you like Serious Sam and Dynasty Warriors and don't mind the repetitiveness, you'll love this game from beginning till the end. Overall, this game is a pretty good, funny, gory and awesome fps game with some repetitiveness that holds it back a bit and a surprisingly good story. If you're not really a fan of repetitive gameplay of killing enemies over and over again, I'll give this game the rating of "good game, but you may need to take a break after playing a few hours into it". But if you don't mind repetitive gameplay of killing a bunch of enemies over and over again, I'll give this game the rating of "so awesome you'll play this game again and again".
I know a lot of people have been calling Ryse: Son of Rome a QTE fest, but to me its shaping up to be an AWESOME hack and slash title. The visuals are stellar, the combat is pretty detailed, the story (while definitely not the most original) seems entertaining and the overall fit and finish of this game seems pretty high! Not to mention, it looks like an HD version of Spartan: Total Warrior from the Xbox/PS2 days! I don't know. Give me your thoughts guys!
