  3. Yesterday
  4. Metal Wolf Chaos XD which is a remaster of the Xbox 360 exclusive Metal Wolf chaos is coming soon. In the build up Devolver has release a behind the scenes video. 1:35 is especially good as they talk about how the game was made to be purely fiction, and seems to have become eerily similar to reality these days.
  5. I also think the game itself is free on the store, for a month longer than announced? Either that or the article i read was worded weirdly. Bought the Horizon 4 VIP pass for $7 or so, down from $29 or whatever. Now just gotta wait for the expansion packs and car packs to come down to a decent special.
  6. The classic hyper-violent, hyper-naughty hyper-indie darling is out now on Switch with both games jammed into one tidy collection.
  7. Finished both Witcher 3 DLC's the other day and have convinced myself that I want to 100% the achievements now :X. 1570/2000 gamerscore so far, just have to clear a few side achievements and then start a New Game + on Death March difficulty and make the right story decisions for some missable achievements to pop. Still one of my games of the generation though - I even choose not to fast travel a lot of the time just so I can ride through the gorgeous environments
  8. Sorority Boys -7.5/10- I forgot how funny this movie is, I mean it is incredibly retarded and stupid without doing much more than "Haha guys dressed as chicks so its funny" but sometimes stupid humor like that is all you need. Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death -7/10- Has Bill Maher in it as the bad ass lead you through the jungle type role as he guides 2 women through the harsh San Bernardino avocado jungle because the a tribe of woman there has taken feminism too far and is now eating men. It is a huge satire on jungle/cannibal b movies it takes the piss out of everything from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Space Odyssey to Disneyland, Playboy, Macho men and the 80's action star boom. Plus it has bewbs. Also the guy who wrote and directed it went on to do Pretty Woman and Under Siege.
  9. need a new controller soon , purple one is my favourite , shame its not slightly darker. might them them out in store when they arrive and try make a decision
  10. Jumped back in to Crash Team Racing just to clean up a few more trophies. Never finished the Adventure mode on Medium difficulty cause I got stuck on the final boss and had no desire to go back to it. So I restarted on Easy. Still jamming Apex Legends Season 2 and have been checking out some more of Battlefront 2 just to see what's new with it. (It's not much)
  11. If you needed more colour to spice up your gaming setup, PlayStation has you covered with a line of new DS4 controllers landing in September and a rose gold headset coming in November. I'm not going to lie, the Electric Purple one certainly has my interest. Check out the announcement videos below: Blurb: PlayStation NZ is excited to reveal four new stylish colours being added to their growing line-up to help you play in style starting this Autumn, including: Electric Purple, Red Camouflage, Titanium Blue, Rose Gold. Since its launch almost six years ago, the DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller now features over 25 colours. PlayStation NZ is also revealing a Rose Gold Edition headset, coming later in November. This headset offers the same Gold Wireless Headset audio features players have come to love, but boasts a Rose Gold metallic finish on the headband, with embossed PS Shapes on the inside. All DUALSHOCK 4 wireless controllers will be available for purchase this September. The Rose Gold headset will be arriving later in November, 2019. For more information feel free to check out the blog post.
  12. Katana Zero, what can I say about it? You play as a katana wielding assassin known only as The Dragon as you set about to accomplish each new mission from your employer. There isn’t much to aid you on that task accept for your trusty blade, whatever objects you can find in level to help out and a small set of time bending powers. One life, one target, one blade and a crap load of henchmen in your way. Katana Zero handles like a dream, everything is very responsive once you get the timing down. Your main method of attack is your sword and that will deal with most of your problems, to aid in your dispatching you will come across the occasional bottle or knife which can be thrown and later on explosives can also be added into the mix. Targeting works as well as could be expected with any screw ups purely down to Zombie error. Now I also mentioned you had some spiffy little time bending powers, while they aren’t super original or exciting they are used pretty much exclusively for dodging, puzzles and environmental kills. The time skills are the worst offender in regards to the controls as they can take a level or three to really get a grasp on their time as it is just kind of odd. Judging by these screen shots I am sure by now you have thought to yourself ‘Hey that looks like Hotline Miami!’ and you aren’t wrong. Katana Zero wears its inspirations on it’s sleeve; unabashedly so. What we have here is some developers who took Hotline Miami, The Matrix, Blade Runner, John Wick, that Ryan Gosling movie Drive where he just hung out acting all cool in a jacket, Edgar Wright and Quentin Tarantino, threw them in a blender on the first setting so the elements still had a nice pulpy feel to them then crafted this game. Before each level begins The Dragon will stop to take a moment and put on headphones before pressing play on his cassette player just so you know its cool and nostalgic. However with that being said these style of games with the retro aesthetics and synth soundtracks are becoming a dime a dozen moreover they are all beginning to blur together with it becoming harder and harder to really tell them apart. Luckily for Katana Zero it still has The Matrix and Blade Runner roots in there to hold up with a strong sense of mind bending story that really drives the game forward giving reasons for everything that happens throughout the game including its cyberpunk setting which not a lot of other games do. Katana Zero isn’t the most original or unique game on the market of 2019 it won’t blow you away nor does it really stand out in the crowded sea of nostalgiabait games but at the same time it isn’t really trying to. Katana Zero is one of those love letters to Sci-Fi to that just gets it right, it knows what it is and the story it wants to tell. Zero is crafted by a love of the genre from hiring Mega Man X and Blade Runner on the weekend and if that was you these are your people and this is a game you will get a kick out of. Zombie reviewed a promo copy of Katana Zero on the Nintendo Switch.

  16. I'm keen when it hits under 20$ but I'm not enough of a car game fan to go higher. They're a bit of fun but not engaging to me
  17. I did see a thing in the Xbox Store last night that the Add-On Collection for Forza 6 was only $7.49 but there was only 1 day left so it might still be available.

  20. One of my biggest surprises in the last five years was the 2014 release of Wolfenstein: The New Order. It took a franchise that had been humming along quietly with above average releases and kicked off a new story that was still in the old cannon. I personally hadn’t touched the series in well over a decade, so this new story presented a great opportunity to jump into the series and thanks to a well-crafted story with amazing gameplay, it was a wise choice. Five years later, we are presented with the fourth game since this rebirth, and with the franchise still being strong, can its newest release stand up to its series standards? Wolfenstein: Youngblood kicks off 20 years after Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus where B.J. Blazkowicz alongside his wife Anya have raised their twin daughters Jessica and Sophia away from the chaos of Nazi’s. When B.J. disappears, the sisters find some secretive documents indicating he has gone to Nazi occupied France to meet with the resistance. Concerned for his safety they head off to find him and become Nazi killers. The story is a touch cheesy, but not bad by any means. My biggest issue is with how the sisters develop throughout the campaign. The game involves them moving from girls with strong arms skills thanks to their combat training to woman who are prime Nazi hunters. As the game progresses, they switch between fumbling goofs and experienced soldiers far too fluently such as taking their first human life where they initially react by throwing up, then seem to move on suddenly to killing machines. It’s like they wanted to make the girls goofy and loveable but couldn't quite merge that with the nature of the gameplay, so the sisters wind up being this weird bipolar mix of the two. What the game introduces well is the more open nature of the missions. Rather than following a linear story like its predecessors, Wolfenstein: Youngblood instead has you operating from a central hub choosing missions. You can replay missions to level up or find collectables or play the game in the order that suits you, to an extent, and this is kind of cool in its own quirky way. I’m still torn on this, because while I like the idea, I have enjoyed the cohesive linear story the series has provided before. Another change, as briefly mentioned before, is the leveling system which has added a reason to replay missions. As the sisters’ level up they can use upgrade points to boost their skills to become better Nazi killers. This is another thing that I am torn on, because while light levelling systems aren't always a bad thing that certainly suits some games, this one didn't need it and doesn’t benefit from its inclusion. The biggest shift of all is the co-operative aspect to the game. The game is much built around co-op given its two main characters are side by side for every mission, and there are countless boxes or levels that need two people to push it down at the same time. This aspect of the game annoyed me more than it should because in the game’s story they conveniently required two people for all this stuff suddenly, BJ must be having a real tough time with any Nazi killing on his own. It’s a minor gripe that annoyed me more than is fair to the game, but for the most part the co-operative experience is built well. I spent most of my time playing on my own, and the AI for my partner isn’t always perfect, but it’s good enough. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is far from the best game in its series, but it’s also far from bad. Some unnecessary systems are a little annoying but as none of them are bad I can’t help but respect all the things they tried in this new experience. It’s still an easily worthwhile experience for fans of the series or people who want to hunt Nazis, even if it doesn’t quite live up to its predecessors.
  21. If the new and improved DOOMs have had you itching for the old days, then Demon Pit has your back. You can fight waves of enemies in an arena that looks and plays like DOOM, check out the trailer and blurb below for more information. Blurb: About the game Arise Demon Hunter. It is time.

Armed with a series of ranged weapons and a soul grapple, you must fight and out maneuver endless waves of demons in a constantly changing environment. How long can you survive before they rip your flesh and claim your soul?

  23. Ion Fury. Man with this Dusk and Amid Evil I've been getting my 90's fps fix all sorted this year. Still think Dusk is my fav out of them but this is still good and just shows how good the build engine is... and what 3D realms could have been doing instead of making Duke Nukem Forever.
  24. Hyper light drifter and mutant year zero: road to Eden both free on EPIC store Can recommend mutant year zero if you're into games like xcom and shadowrun.
