reminded me why I love gaming

Reviewed by on

I've been gaming for about 25/30 years and its always been my hobby but over recent years its been few and far between to find games that I am completely engrossed in, even though I purchase the latest releases and then they just get added to my back list. But with the Souls games and now with me playing Dark Souls 1 and the remastered version for the first time, I was completely absorbed.reminded me of why I love games, The challenge, the adrenaline rush and the mystery. Highly recommended, The mechanics and flow take a little getting used too if you new to the series but not overwhelming.You will be addicted soon enough,
Notable mention is to play Bloodborne if you haven't.
Enjoy and Git Gud!

Good Game but don't expect Skyrim

Did you think skyrim on easy was too hard? Did you worry that when you ran into a dungeon everything wouldn't already be dead from other players?

Do you want amazing quests Fantastic stories of hostage rescues in a world where a wasting disease has reduced all of tamriels villians to something a stiff breeze could knock down

A game where your going to love exploring until you realize your so overleveled you can simply left click everything to death?

Do you want the elderscrolls game that can finally give you the satisfaction of having a ridiculously geared player wade through 10 other players in a pvp game based around a bug in animation? ((which the developers are now calling a feature))

Why so salty. I love this game.the world is amazing the theivery the quests the people awesome love the classes. The combat seems amazing when you start then you realize the enemies are paper tigers. I love the blocking inturrupt and dodge mechanics ((just wish I actually had to use them))


There are only two places where you can feel like your not killing newborn puppies. Which means 90 percent of your game experience until end game is going to be press any button to win.

This new entry of Assassin's creed was not something I was willing to play at first but honestly after giving this game a try I was mmediately proved wrong thinking this game was a mere copy and paste from the previous entry from Assassins Creed Origins. The world is vibrant and alive as ever.

But this is not the reason alone. I have to admit that this game is as good as The Witcher 3 which has one of the best RPG games out there this generation. Not just that but the game is longer and diverse then Origins. If you had to decide if you want to pick this up I dearly say its worth every single penny. Worth the price tag.

Is this really Assassins Creed?

Reviewed by on

I have bought and finished every Assassins Creed game and it is one of my favorite game series. This one is very different to all before besides Origins, in which it improves on everything.

Opting for a much more RPG style of play with skill trees and dialogue choices that have effects later in the story, this gave me a reason to play it all over again, which i never really felt with the previous games.

The biggest issue I had with the game was the lip sync, i wouldn't say its bad or unbearable but something makes it look a little off, which can be distracting.

All in all this is a great direction for the series and i would recommend it to veteran assassins creed players and those looking to get into the series.

A different different take on a famous series.

Reviewed by on

Final Fantasy XV focuses on the story of Noctis, a young prince from the kingdom of Lucis. Lucis is the last remaining holdout against the conquest of an oppressive empire and Noctis is engaged to marry the princess of another kingdom in order to seal a peace treaty. Noctis is joined on his adventure by three friends and protectors as they go on a road trip to get him to his princess and save his kingdom.

The first most noticeable change in Final Fantasy XV is the gameplay. Both the combat and exploration have been completely overhauled. Starting with the combat Final Fantasy XV throws out the turn-based combat in favour of a real-time combat system. It is not fully real-time so anybody expecting Dark Souls levels of combat will be disappointed but I quite like it. Basically you hold attack to attack and defend to defend and the most important part of the combat is knowing when to do what. Noctis can also teleport in and out of battle to do bonus damage and also let you survey what is happening and allowing you to decide what to do next. You are only ever in charge of Noctis (although an update has changed it so that you can play as the other characters later if you get the right skills) while the other characters are controlled by A.I which can sometimes be a little on the dim-witted side but it is okay otherwise. Each party member also has a different specialty in weapons covering pretty much everything and Noctis being the only character that can use what he wants. I quite like this design decision as it makes each character feel slightly different but also useful. As you battle a tech bar gets filled up which allows you to execute special attacks with your party members and more powerful techniques require more tech bars to execute. The tech bars add a nice bit of extra synergy to the combat and often allow you to do a good extra chunk of damage. The biggest problem with the combat system for me is against tanky enemies with lots of health where you run into the problem of there is not much to do but slowly chip away at them. Other than that the difficulty curve is wonky as hell. Firstly it is way too easy to accidently over level the party early on and knock all of the difficulty out of the combat. Individual encounters also have a habit of being easier as they go on as you whittle down their health or numbers. In older games bosses would get more dangerous as you killed their adds and damaged them whereas in Final Fantasy XV they get easier as you have fewer enemies to deal with/distract you partners and enemies get weaker as you break their appendages and defences.

The magic system has also been reworked so that instead of just being able to use magic you absorb magic found around the world and combine it with other elements and catalysts to create limited numbers of spells of varying power and effect. It works okay but there are so many problems with the system. Firstly magic does friendly fire damage over a huge AOE so you generally don’t want to use it since you will probably end up wiping out your party, there is an item that negates this problem but that feels like they are fixing a problem they created. Magic also leaves an irritating damage over time effect that you cannot protect your party from so for most boss fights you end up doing more damage to yourself than anything. Secondly you can boost the power of your magic by combining the various elements together but when you start modifying the spell with catalysts you create unintentional combinations. I just want to make a bunch of Tundaga spells but now I have a bunch of Unicast spells and can’t choose the element that I want. I feel like if the game is going to insist on having a magic crafting system that the system should then have the depth to make what I want otherwise just give me pre-selected options to choose from.

In the same way that the combat has been massively reworked so has the exploration gameplay. The game has gone open world which is a great modern change to the game and probably something that it needed. The developers were smart to give you the Regalia (your car) from the start as the world is massive and would take you forever to walk anywhere. The massive world and the car encourage exploration and I was always looking forward to a quest sending me somewhere I have never been before so I can see what else the world has to offer. Final Fantasy XV does take the more Japanese approach to open world design so it is closer to something like Yakuza or Xenoblade rather than GTA so don’t expect to ramp the Regalia off a cliff and onto someone’s grandma. The Regalia can only drive on the roads and you can’t even drive on the wrong side of the road but it never really bothered me, I enjoyed setting the driving to auto and just watching the countryside go by. The world has enough variety to always keep it interesting There is a problem that the world can sometimes be incredibly restrictive with large parts of the world being fenced off from exploration and some parts of the map being little more than a town and the road to it. Another problem with an open world like this is that you need content to fill it and while Final Fantasy XV does make an admirable attempt to do this with a number of side quests, hunts and dungeons unfortunately it never really evolves past either go here and kill this thing, go here and fetch this thing or if the game is feeling spicy go here and kill a thing so that you can fetch another thing. I feel like just a little more variation to the side quests could actually make a huge difference.

Unlike the shake-up in gameplay and exploration, the story of Final Fantasy XV is about as Final Fantasy as you can get. There is an evil empire that has dominated the world through evil technology and your kingdom is the last holdout that thanks to your magic. Noctis is the chosen one and only he can save his kingdom. I like the story but it suffers from a huge albatross around its neck in the form of Noctis and his non-existent character early in the game. It does improve later but much like my complaints about Final Fantasy XIII-2 you can’t backload the protagonist’s motivation and character development because a lot of people are not going to be motivated to keep playing. This is an especially big problem with Noctis because he starts off whiny, angsty and spoilt and you have to suffer through Noctis for hours before he starts actually becoming interesting. The story’s saving grace though is the rest of the party in the form of Gladiolus, Ignis and Prompto. They are all so well characterised, dripping with personality and they all have such good chemistry that you can’t help but want to see what they do next. There is just so much character between them and every now and then even Noctis manages to seem like he is enjoying himself and I feel like this part of the game is where the real heart of the story comes from. Yes you are saving the world and fighting monsters but at the end of the day it is about a bunch of friends who are willing to do anything for each other. The exploration gameplay takes full advantage of this because this is where you will grow attached to your friends and it helps set-up the big emotional story beats that come later. Speaking of the big emotional beats Final Fantasy XV has one of the best endings I have experienced in a Final Fantasy game ever. Unlike other Final Fantasy the game doesn’t go window licking crazy by the end, instead playing up the whole power of friendship theme and I have to be honest it hit me right in the feels like a fucking train. The other big problem with the story is that you can see that it has been chopped down quite a bit at the end. Prompto has a weird sudden revelation that comes out of nowhere and is then resolved immediately so it amounts to nothing, most of the villains get killed off screen so there is very little pay-off for many plot points and it feels like a lot of the final act is happening at break neck speeds with so much happening that most people are bound to miss something.

There are many positives to be found on the technical side of things in Final Fantasy XV. The game is unbelievably beautiful. In fact I had several people walk into the room while I was playing and ask what movie I was watching? It is not just the raw graphical power that is impressive but the world of Eos is really well designed to just have some stunning moments. There are so many unique geological features and stunning vistas that you will accidently stumble upon multiple jaw dropping visual moments. The art design has also improved massively since the XIII games with no more angles upon angle and things onto of things so it is very easy to tell at a glance what is going on. My only complaint about the visual design is that for some reason they decided the entire party should wear black which can turn battle into a bit of a cluster fuck. The animations are also really top notch with the entire party giving so much character through how they move like Gladiolus’ slow confident strides to Prompto’s energetic bouncing around the place. You can just tell that a lot of work has gone into these characters. To compliment the great animations the voice work is great as well for the entire cast. The party likes to chat and tease each other throughout the game so if the voice acting was terrible it would have really hurt that emotional core. The game is wonderfully scored as most Final Fantasy games are but I like the touch that you can buy music from older games to listen to in the car so I get to drive around looking at the pretty scenery while having some of my series favourites playing in the background. There are some technical niggles here are there. The game likes to pull weird loading screens out of fucking nowhere. It also likes to mess around with control schemes between walking, driving and chocobo riding so if you spend a while doing one you are going to do something retarded when you switch between them. The one that annoyed me the most was that the game can sometimes be very picky about accepting prompts for actions so instead of talking to people or picking up objects Noctis will instead jump flailing into the air like a crazy person and this will have the added effect of now shifting the prompt selection making me repeat the process.

A new technical aspect that I wanted to discuss on its own is the day-night cycle. So in Final Fantasy XV there is a day and night cycle where as you explore the world the time changes from dawn, to midday, to dusk and finally night. Certain things can only happen at certain times and some monsters only come out at certain times. Night time is also much more dangerous as very powerful monsters can spawn at night and attack you. To help with this you can rest at hotels or set-up camp at havens scattered throughout the world. Hotels give you experience boost and if you camp then Ignis can cook the party some amazing looking food that gives various temporary boosts such as increased stats or immunity to various things. I really like this system, firstly because it feeds into the story. Secondly it creates a nice routine for you to get into where you wake up, plan out a day worth of questing and hunting and then at the end of the day you relax and set-up for the next day and reflect on the previous day. Rest points also restore your maximum HP and level up your characters and skills so you will want to set-up camp at some point anyway. I think that it is a fun little system that gives some structure to the open world so that you don’t just wonder into the wilderness for hours on end.

One big problem with the game is the infamous Chapter 13. Basically after getting the player used to the party, combat and huge open environments for most of the game the developers decide to shove you down endless boring corridors alone with no weapons for a few hours. The massive gameplay shift is incredibly jarring because they have spent the whole game getting you used to the combat system and then taking that away feels unfair. It is the same problem with the level design; even though most story missions are a lot more structured they at least put in the effort to make them visually interesting the rest of the time. Here it is just identical grey industrial hallways as far as the eye can see. Leaving Noctis alone for the whole level is also a big shift from what we are used to as players so while he is going through his most important character moments we don’t even other characters to react off of. Then weirdly all the other characters show up at the end and nobody thinks that any of this was weird. Now I understand the narrative importance of these gameplay decisions because they needed to explore the idea of Noctis needing to learn to survive without his friends and accept his destiny but I feel like the chapter could have been shorter and packed the content more tightly since it is so late in the game that keeping the story beats coming fast would help build towards to the climax.

Personally speaking Final Fantasy XV feels like the most Final Fantasy-y Final Fantasy ever to me. It feels like a love letter to the entire series, borrowing ideas and themes from multiple games in the series while often putting a new and interesting spin on them. The Prince saving his kingdom, the warrior of light, the four friends, the music, small flourishes and references all over the place just always bring back memories of other games in the series. I like how the game mixes fantasy with modernity in the game where people have swords and ride chocobos but they also have cellphones and televisions and that just combines with the mixing of classic Final Fantasy with new ideas. I think that it is a very well done concept.

Overall I loved Final Fantasy XV and it has managed to worm its way into my heart as one of my favourites despite its many flaws. It is worth a try but probably not for everyone.

This review is return before the actual release but there is literally tons of gameplay videos out there showing the quality of the game.
whatever ideas we have had of an open world and how its systems should react were mostly met with dissapointment because the actual games felt too scripted in the past, but this time around the npcs have unpredictable behaviour which can lead to interesting experiences.

its not just a case of fomo, this game is going to be one of the best for this year and you should really invest in it.

Stunning

Reviewed by on

Horizon Zero Dawn was a game that I was scared to be hyped about. The idea seemed so awesome and interesting, but hard to execute on. However, Guerrilla Games truly built something amazing here.

The world or Horizon is easily one of the most beautiful and interesting worlds I have ever explored in a game. It's both terrifying and intriguing, and exploring never feels tedious as it does in so many other open world games.

The combat is challenging and varied. There are many weapon options to choose from which allows you to change your play style. Stealth is satisfying and feels just as viable as fighting. The variety of enemies to fight means that combat is always interesting and good planning becomes incredibly rewarding.

The storyline in Horizon, while not amazing, was interesting enough to keep me listening. The only place I can truly fault the game is that some of the secondary character voice acting is pretty terrible.

All in all, Horizon Zero Dawn is well worth the purchase.

God of War has truly utilized the technology of the current generation to create a beautiful work of art. So many triple A titles rely on the same formula, a big open world filled with the same repetitive missions to try create a dense game.
God of War creates a beautiful sandbox world that you can't but help explore. The combat is so satisfying where you can feel every slice of the axe tear an enemies flesh apart. The story develops a narrative that is so important and leaves you with a heart warming feeling. Only negative is that this game ends... ITS DEFINITELY A BUY!!!!
