  2. Doom Eternal I think overall I liked this game but I don't feel it was as good as Doom 2016. The gameplay loop felt like too many things to juggle all at once and I was basically just always chasing what I needed to refill rather than just getting into a flow. And when I was just starting to warm up to it they threw Marauders at me and I got frustrated again. Not ashamed to say I just dropped the difficulty down so I could power through it. Kind of enjoying going back through the levels with Cheat Codes on though.
  3. If you aren't a lucky devil in Aus playing the game already, then Square has released a new trailer to tease you for launch day this week. Check it out!
  4. Yesterday
  5. Kung Pow: Enter The Fist -7/10- Been years since I've seen it and its just as stupid and hilarious as I remember.
  6. Last week
  7. Resident Evil 3 remake... okay is there some rule that says the 2nd half of RE3 games has to be mediocre because this seems to be a thing in both this one and the original. So I have mixed feelings on this game. The first couple of hours is exactly what I wanted walking around Raccoon city, solving puzzles and when Nemesis shows up and start chasing you it's intense... then I threw a grenade at him... on hard mode... it downed him... what. Now granted it was only for a few seconds but well... he continued to be easy to down. Now granted he does learn to protect his big glowy "SHOOT ME" part with a hand but that slows him down so he is easy to run from then. Okay I thought first encounter maybe future ones will be... *Capcom employee comes over and whispers something into my ear* what do you mean that is the only time this happens? It happens like 7 times in the original. *Capcom employee whispers again* What do you mean he is now just going to chase me down some corridors and have 4 boss fights from now on? Alright fine so yeah Nemesis is not Nemesis okay but... okay where have the clock tower, park and factory zones gone? *Employee looks around and shrugs but points to the new Lab they added* sooo you took out the unique areas thus taking a good hour or two of game-play out and replaced them with a generic lab? *Employee nods* wow I mean the 2nd half of the original was mmmm but at least those areas were different this is just your generic RE lab... wait what about Gravedigger if the park is missing then wh.... you cut him didn't you? "... employee nods" Anything else? "... employee points out the hunter beta, gamma and drain deimos only show up in 1 area in the game each bar the beta who shows up once more later." ... Okay so let me guess random enemy spawns are gone to? "Employee nods?" Multi choice stuff to? "Employee nods" Mercenary mode? "Shows RE Resistance" Okay that one I knew about beforehand but at least it is still survival horror and you haven't got a part where I have to fight a army of zombies to defend a specific point with an assault rifle or something right *... points to Carlos who waves* ... oh lord. Yeah so... I am going to say this. You want to play Resident Evil 3 remake and enjoy it... play the demo. That is the best bit of the game and I still enjoy that part even on repeat play throughs. However after that part the game rapidly goes down hill. Do I like what they did with some of the enemies? Yeah I do the new Gammas look freaky and are cool, same with the Betas... the Drain Deimos mmmm not really but yeah the hunters are cool and the zombies are still threatening and Nemesis when he chases you as well but they only show up like this once or twice and then gone. Walking around the city at the start is great but that's it do it once and then gone. Would have been cool to do it at the start and then come back say a day later and see how far it has fallen apart after a day of infection or something as you do have to go back there in the original but not here. Honestly it is clear to me this was done alongside RE2 remake by another team as it has some of the stuff that made RE2 remake great and even the original RE3 great but it's missing so much other stuff that it just feels generic. Hell if I was to give it a score would be a 6 or something as is fully playable with no bugs that I saw just missing the bits it needed to make me say go and get it... which is sad because after RE2 remake it could clearly happen just hasn't. I mean you want to fight a proper Nemesis... Mr X does that better.
  8. 2016’s Ori and the Blind Forest was a surprise hit, one no one seemed to see coming with it boasting an easy to grasp yet challenging to master gameplay and a beautiful yet haunting presentation. The Devs over at Moon Studios crafted a metroidvania styled game that will make you laugh one minute then cry the next, fill you with dread before replacing it with hope and making you question just what the hell was going with a puzzle right before the answer becomes obvious. Ori and the Blind Forest was a damn near masterpiece and easily the best Disney creation Disney never did, but did the lightening strike twice? In short, yes Raiden cast down volts on the very same spot with mad accuracy; Ori and the Will of the Wisps is just as competent and rich as its predecessor. This very fact makes it a hard game to review as it’s almost as if the exact same bolt of lightening hit that very spot over and over again but if it ain’t broke right? By this I mean to say that this follow up is kind of like a second episode of an animated series, not much has changed; other than the story obviously. Yet not changing things works in its favor as the original title was pretty ace and did the metroidvania genre solidly. This isn’t a bad thing much like Gris Ori’s games are meant to be experienced, it’s the story which is the focal point of the game’s and much like the first entry Will of the Wisps had me ugly crying in no time. Enough about my running rampant allergies while playing Ori and let’s have a run down on some gameplay. As previously stated Ori is a metroidvania leaving you to go back and forth as you collect new abilities and progress the story, Ori does this all rather solidly. One of the games greatest strengths is its pacing, everything from story beats to movement is swift and just brilliant for lack of a better word. Many times you will find yourself coming to a dead end, as is the way with these kinds of games, leaving you to backtrack to a new ability opening up the next area. None of the backtracking needed feels forced or slow as each new ability speeds up the process allowing you to zip past platforming dangers or dispose of enemies you may have previously struggled against. Ori is also so damn pretty to look at, it’s almost like a high end Disney cartoon that you can play through, although Will of the Wisps looks like one Tim Burton directed. Colours are mixed with bright dangers and muted elements with each region having its own tones and thematics all of which perfectly suit the emotions the story is conveying. There is however one section where all colour and speed and removed as the entire area is nothing but darkness which brings not only the gameplay but emotion peak of the game to a grinding halt which utterly ruined the experience for me. Sure it was still brilliantly put together but hitting a brick wall like that threw me out of the game, it removed me to the point where I just couldn’t get back into it. This is however my only real complaint about the game, one section where everything that had been built up was put to the side for some tricky platforming and stay next to the tiny light or die gimmicks. Needless to say this is a game that has garnered high praise for players and critics alike and for good reason too. Sure it doesn’t improve or go above and beyond like a sequel should but looking at Will of the Wisps as a sequel is doing the game a disservice. What we have here looks, plays and feels like the second chapter of tale and if you have gone through the first chapter then you must keep going and if you have yet to look it then go pick up The Blind Forest so you can jump into the experience is that is Ori. Zombie was provided with a promo copy of Ori and the Will of the Wisps to review on the Xbox One S.
  9. Oxenfree. Random free games with Gold game i had i think. Still don't know what i think about it. Modern Warfare. I only play campaign in shooter games, and this one wasn't too bad. After the credits, i went into the Warzone Battle Royal mode just to see what it was like, and ended up 10th out of 130+ players... By lying flat on the ground behind a rock for the whole time, except when i crawled down the hill a bit to try avoid the closing in play area/poison gas. I eventually let the gas take me, as i could see people on the roads below who i thought may have been planning on shooting me. Not gonna give them that pleasure. But yeah, i don't do online shooters as my play style is always stealthy and involves less risk taking. That's why in GTA Online deathmatches i usually try run away as far as i can instead of participate. Sniper Elite 3. Was a great game, enjoyed it more than i thought i would, after i turned the difficulty level to the easiest possible (no bullet drop etc). I do this for most games now, as i don't like getting annoyed/angry when playing games anymore as it takes the fun out of them. I just want to experience them now, not be the best. That, and my reactions are shot, compared to when i was younger, so i suck at most games anyway. Telltale Games' 2nd Batman game. Whatever the heck it's called. Easy platinum. Gonna miss Telltale Games though, only got the very last Walking Dead game to buy and play now, then it's doneskies.
