General Gaming / BRAWLOUT: Super Smash Bros. Knock-off?
« on: June 04, 2018, 11:03:05 AM »
I went to my local EB games and while browsing the rack i came across a pre-order for a game called Brawlout... i automatically saw it was a SSB knock off by the description and pictures on the back... but then in 2 of the photos i noticed an oddly familiar set of characters: Juan from Guacamelee and Drifter From Hyperlight Drifter. As you may know i have wanted to see Juan in SSB because his move set in the Guacamelee game would fit in perfectly. Its good to see he's getting some SSB practice.

General Gaming / You know what needs a remastered edition....?
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:12:46 PM »
So i was reading through some older posts and our good friend Hito once mentioned; "this gen is the king of remasters". So in light of that, what games would you want to see get resurrected for this generation?
The game may have been released only in a specific country, or on a failing system, or maybe just has been a long time and an updated version needs to come out.

Our dear friend 'Fran', who made the totally awesome 'UNEPIC' game tried to get some crowd funding for his next game 'AFRAID', sadly it looks like there was not that much interest in it and he's going to have to find a different route to get the cash to keep the game going.

Here's the Kickstarter if you are interested:

General Gaming / MOSS physical copy coming to a store near you!
« on: May 12, 2018, 11:27:01 AM »
For those of you who own a PSVR; you need no introduction as to what Moss is.
However there are some of you who refuse to allow VR technology in to your life.
Hopefully one day you will learn of it's wonderful and amazing world, and one can only hope that Moss will be the game you try.

You play as Quill, an adorable little mouse that you control in a 3rd person perspective, both you and Quill navigate and help each other to solve puzzles and even combat. You use the gamepad to move Quill around the terrain while you manipulate it to give her an path, or reveal puzzle components to keep you two moving along the various locations.

If there was ever a time to get a PSVR and a specific game, a physical or digital copy of Moss is definitely the reason hop over to your local shop and get one!

Check out the company home page here to get your copy:

Movies, Tv, Anime and Music / Aggretsko: ode to millennials.
« on: May 06, 2018, 09:35:56 PM »
So recently Netflix put out a new show called Aggretsko. Suffice to say this is basically what if Hello Kitty was forced to work a sucky office job? It deals with how us young folks have a hard time getting in and dealing with a changing workplace. It funny and endearing and in some aspects dead on about how the world is for anyone that has a job now a days.

General Gaming / Octoling update for Splatoon 2?
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:50:19 AM »
I have seen some blurb on a few websites saying that Octolings will be playable in Splatoon 2 in the summer. Some pictures were of a DLC page stating it will be $20 to get the update.

Thanks Nintendo, i totally didnt want to play as an Octoling in Splatoon 1.... jerks.

I know some of you don't own a PS3 or Vita, and it won't affect you one bit, or even make any difference, but I thought I would bring this up anyway.

Last night I got my weekly PS+ update email, advertising the new games for the week, the usual AAA titles were present, Pre-order this, discount that. BUT, as I scrolled further, I came across the line stating that the Monthly Free Games for PS+ members was dropping PS3 and Vita titles as of March 8th 2019, I was a little saddened, not quite by the loss of this feature, but rather the prospect that it is the closing of an era, that soon the PS3 and Vita may completely fade from sight.

Although I do have a PS3 and Vita, I didn't have a PS+ membership for the longest time, and often opted for a physical copy of a game. I surely would have taken advantage of this offer more often, however it seems that the game offers leading up to this were lack lustre, often being sub-par indie games, this in particular was true for the Vita. I feel this is a bit of an injustice to two great system, but I see that time are changing and we must move on past the older generation to make way for the new.

May the games flow, and their joysticks never seize....

General Gaming / Can you survive the Quiet Apocalypse?
« on: December 26, 2017, 05:44:28 AM »
So "The Long Dark" came out quite a while ago, and its a survival game set in the Canadian wilderness. I bought it with a 20% discount and played about 1 hour of it, I think I need adjust some settings as it didnt give me prompts for the tutorial and I kept dying or just wandering the tutorial area looking for things that didnt exist. Its supposed to be quite in-depth and the visuals are quite interesting. If you have some spare cash on hand and its still on sale, check it out.

PS. I recall talking about a game similar to this a while ago I think it was on the original Emulation Underground website. The only difference was the map was procedurally generated, and the main objective was to get to the bottom of the mountain and get to a city or vilage.

General Gaming / Game Review: Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite-Disappointment!
« on: September 23, 2017, 10:40:59 PM »
So, as many of you may know, I like X-Men and Wolverine, and in general Marvel.

As such I had decided to give in to peer pressure and re-order a copy of MvC: Infinite Deluxe edition (PS4) despite my better judgement, especially with warnings from others stating that there is high possibility that there will be no X-Men this time around, but i waited and waited and finally got my copy in the mail, i cracked openn the box, entered the DLC codes that came inside (In the Deluxe version there is the Carol Danvers Costume, and the 2017 Character season pass) naturally as with most new games, there was a day one patch, which was about 10gb...

Once the download was compete i started the game and went in to the tutorial section to see what if anything has changed since MvC3, and almost immediately i noticed the lack of free-form combos, instead the game telling me to just start tapping "Square to perform combos" i did as it told me, figuring that there will be more advanced moves later, sadly even after completing the tutorial section and going in to a practice mode and adjusting the controller settings, the general strategy remained much the same hit one button until the combo finished and then tap it again or tag your partner in to carry on the combo, much of the moves have been replaced with simple commands like down-corner-forward-punch/kick, or down-corner-back-punch/kick, which is nice, but this limits the character to 4 special moves, and then 2 different super moves when your power bar is full.

My first problem with the game in addition to the watered down controls and terrible story mode was the fact that it conformed that my beloved X-Men were not in the game, so that already angered me.

One other gripe is that despite having the DLC code for 6 characters, the voucher stated that only Black Panter and Sigma were going to be available at launch, and 4 others will be added before December 31st 2017, however made no mention of who these characters are, additionally, i looked high and low to try out these 2 DLC characters that were supposed to appear in the roster, but it seems despite the 10gb download they were not present, so in short i bought a regular copy for $130CAD, and got a big middle finger from Capcom as they laughed to the bank.

I suppose i can take solace in the fact that i bought this copy from EB games and invoked the "Gamer Satisfaction Guarantee" part of my membership, and they took the game back and issued me the $130CAD as store credit, at which point i bought 3 games that were on special, and that at the time of writing this, i am enjoying much more than Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite, and for those of you whom are curious, the 3 games i traded MvCi for are: Job Simulator, Agents Of Mayhem, and World to the West!

All in all, the only people i can suggest this game to are new players that want to get experience in playing fighting games, and those who want to keep up to date with the MvC universe, but beware of the DLC that doesnt even activate properly... im certain its a glitch that will add the extra characters eventually, but its just bad programming to not have a game work the way it supposed to or have the content that was promised  ready at launch.

Hey so I was at my local Walmart the other day and I saw an interesting game in the $20-30 game rack, it's called 'Yonder: the cloud catcher chronicles' for the PS4, I bought a copy after doing aome research and seeing that players and critics recommend it and it had a 4/5 stars on average, and suffice to say it is an interesting game.

It has the aesthetics and puzzle solving of Windwaker, with the crafting and exploration of Minecraft.

At first I though "oh no, I just bought a farming simulator" and yes I was right, but finally when I put the controller down I realized I just played for 4 hours straight, so there is something bigger than a farming simulator here. Its the desire to explore and to build and craft, much like minecraft, the only difference is that you need to find specific plots of land to build your 'farms' where as minecraft lets you build anything anywhere.

I suspect its the bright vibrant colours and cheerful atmosphere that keeps drawing me in, and I find myself wanting to pick up the controller again, but one of the strangest things is that there is no combat in this game, animals you see can be domesticated and used to produce milk, clay (i dont know how this works, I have a pet fox that gives me clay everyday) or other food/crafting materials.

This game is obvioisly designed for the younger audiences, but it certainly has won my heart over with the aesthetics alone, another point is that there is no combat, unless you count smashing rocks or cutting down trees combat, then you won't be fighting anything in this game and also as a result of not having combat; your character can not die, if they fall in to an area they are not supposed to be or fall in to water, the game will spawn you at the last solid ground you were on and you carry-on.

Despite its positives, there are a few negatives: first movement is really floaty, if you are trying to walk a straight line across a narrow path or bridge you may slide off as the edges of the hit-box for your character seem to be rounded and may result in you falling into water, or having you try again several time before you succeed,  another fairly annoying issue is that the game does not give a very good description of how to do things, mainly crafting, for example a character says that he will show me how to craft animal feed to draw a Groffle(a moose-cow animal) to your farm so you can domesticate it for milk production. Eventually I figured it out and got my first cow, but a little cinematic tutorial would have been nice.

Over all, if you have a PS4 or PC and you are sick of the blocky Minecraft, you may find your self drawn in by this charming little game, there are a lot of things to explore and almost every villager needs some help and grants you a quest to help unlock other portions of the island by teaching you to craft structures that allow you to reach further and further!

General Gaming / PS VR and Farpoint.
« on: June 17, 2017, 04:40:20 PM »
So as you my know i bought the PS VR starter kit, and it is quite superb! I look forward to the games that they are going to release in the future.

With that said, for those of you who are on the fence about getting a PS VR setup i will say, get it and Farpoint, it is an excellent FPS game, and the Aim gun/controller you get with the deluxe pack is very spiffy!

I just beat the game and i want to actually go through it again to see if i can get all the data logs and possibly some of weapon trick shots. but just a heads up, i think the best 2 weapon combo is the assault rifle and shotgun as they both have a secondary fire of Laser guided rockets, and Grenades which are paramount in "boss" battles. but the other gun are fun to use too, like the spiker (im pretty sure its ripping off the Needler from Halo).

anyway, if you can find the bundle on special (basically under $500) then grab it, i have seen some stores offer the helmet for $500, the Farpoint/Gun bundle for $50, and you get a "free" camera. so about $550 in total.
