The Evil Within: Quick Game Review

However, the positive side of the scale is not exactly empty, and offers more than enough to consider The Evil Within as a good game. Despite some not very well resolved topical elements (such as the same protagonist, a generic detective), the fragmented structure of the script, jumping between many different times and locations, it strengthens the feeling of helplessness and vulnerability. It does not allow us to get used to the environment.

The design of the monsters is another point in the game. Strange creatures we face are as disturbing as suggested. Moviegoers will find visual parallels in horror cult titles such as Tetsuo: The Iron Man or Hostel; some images have reminded me Cronenberg films like Videodrome. There are many game situations that work very well visually, such as the journey through the strange sanatorium mirrors, where we can save the game.

In the playable, The Evil Within is based on key gender to build a voltage scare easy experience. Scarcity of resources forces us to think before acting and consider the scenes as a small puzzle. We die many times but it is satisfying to see that you’ve passed another scene with more ingenuity and skill, not pure luck. In addition, the system improves skills as The Evil Within allow us to go adapting the experience to strengthen the weaknesses of our style of play.

The Evil Within is a good return to genus by Shinji Mikami, but it also has its flaws. A playable level manages to create tension in the player, but in return we require some patience to find solutions based on trial and error. The script has good ideas and a well posed nonlinear structure; Unfortunately, the least interesting element is the protagonist. It is in the visual which highlights more to an excellent design of monsters and environments. Survival horror fans can rest easy: Mikami has not lost his touch.

To date, there is a large diverseness of games to completely suit all tastes, but only a few of them are really worthy of playing frequently. Warframe is a great example of a time bomb for fans. We will explore why it has become so acclaimed by gamers, despite the disinterest of publishing Warframe by game creators, in this review of which is waiting for you in this article. This game has been taking systems by storm for several years, during which time it has gained a huge following around the world.

New Star Wars Game Is Set To Calm Frustrated Fans

There were more than a few frustrated fans when the first Star Wars Battlefront game was released. The game was designed to be a multi-player game but that hype did not work out so well. The fact was that while the game was multi-player, the design of the weapons and indeed the landscape of the levels in the games themselves were too simplistic according to the Verge.


What Electronic Arts is trying to do with the second version of this great game series is to try to please those who were so upset. Those who have gotten the opportunity to beta test the game have said that they appear to be on the right track. How this game will actually be able to calm the nerves of those who were upset is still yet to be seen.


The first thing that the game has done right is that it has a single player mode. That was something that was entirely missing from the first game. The way that the multi-player mode is set up is better than what was available in the first version of the game. It does seem that the company paid more attention to the graphics and other matters in the game to make sure that people are not upset by the things that they were bothered about in the past.


There is a whole storyline that one can play in single player mode. It is designed to be challenging but not impossible to beat. That is good because a lot of times there are just not friends available to play the game with you even if that is what you would prefer to do. If you can get enjoyment out of a game by just playing it by yourself, then you are already in pretty good shape. That is what this game has done its best to work on.


Considering all of this, the Star Wars Battlefront 2 game is something to behold.


Far Cry 5 To Focus on the United States

The “Far Cry” series has developed a reputation for beautiful locations, plenty of guns, impressive voice work and courting controversy by placing the blank-slate protagonist in exotic locales with guns pointed toward the local populace. Previous games have been set in the South Pacific, Africa, an oceanic archipelago and even a fabricated country located within the Himalayas. Far Cry 5 seems to be breaking away from this world tour approach by taking place within the United States. In recent press materials for the game, Far Cry 5 indicates that it will be set in Montana with a religious cult of rural, pro-gun Caucasians as its primary source of antagonism.


Drawing inspiration from real life, the imagery seems to be taken from the 2016 occupation of an Oregonian wildlife refuge. With the exception of the “Grand Theft Auto” and “Postal” franchises, few modern, “triple A” titles feature American citizens as the enemy; most games go for a non-controversial element, having the player contend with extraterrestrials, the undead, sentient machines, Nazis or faceless “foreigners.” While plenty has been explained about Far Cry 5’s setting and antagonists, the identity of the player character is a complete unknown. Far Cry 2 let the player select his ethnicity; Far Cry 3 had a white collegiate gaining tribal tattoos and Far Cry 4’s protagonist was returning home to spread his mother’s ashes. Whatever ethnicity the Far Cry 5 protagonist is, the choice will likely be made to counterpoint its antagonists.


Initial impressions of the game’s press materials have been mixed, but sharp on both ends. Where some people commented that they would find out which company makes the Far Cry series so that that company will never receive a cent by purchasing their games, others responded with the perceived hope that Caucasians would become evil by promising to follow throw and others still greeted the opportunity to mow down proxies for religious bigots via chain gun with great enthusiasm. While it’s unknown how Far Cry 5 will offer the usual beautiful settings and dangerous weapons, its press kit mentions that it will discuss video game violence and why the acceptance of murdering virtual people is entirely dependent on which political, religious or ethnic group happens to be in the gunner’s sights.


The Nintendo Switch Review

Set to launch on March 3, the Nintendo Switch is another attempt by the gaming company to reconcile a console with mobile and home entertainment capabilities. A recent review done by TechCrunch, who were able to get their hands on the device before launch, claims that the hardware from Nintendo is crafty, but limited. Buyers can expect to find a restricted number of game titles upon release, but may be pleasantly surprised by the reliability of the Switch.
The device itself comes equipped with a 6.2-inch screen that can be docked into a charging station which may be plugged into a home theatre system. Using the switch in this fashion allows for multiplayer gaming on a bigger screen using the two “Joy-Con” wireless controllers. With both controllers attached, the system weights approximately .88 pounds.
Going wireless with the Nintendo Switch allows consumers to use the device for up to three hours without charge. Wireless online gaming is available without being plugged into the home charging dock. Among the multiplayer options provided by the Switch include an 8-player home functionality and a parental control standalone application.
Despite the lack of games mentioned by TechCrunch’s review of the Switch, Nintendo lists nine games being available for play on March 3, including the fan favorite, Zelda.
Nonetheless, the Nintendo Switch is a bold attempt at introducing a versatile home gaming system into the market. The ability to take the system on the go makes keeping track of game progress easier than the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One competitors. While the Switch does not have the robust graphics capabilities of these bigger consoles, this new product option by Nintendo will undoubtedly make an impact in the gaming market, especially with the established Nintendo fans.

New Ad For “Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild” Has Many Fans Talking

A brand new ad for “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” was released at the Video Game Awards, and it has a lot of fans talking. After watching this ad, many gamers believe this new game will allow Link to time travel and call on kinsmen within the game to fight by his side.


The scene gamers focus on to make the time travel claim is an encounter between Link and an enemy that looks somewhat like a bird. Gamers point out that the Master Sword Link is wielding looks brand new, which directly contrasts a similar scene shown in E3’s 2016 “Breath of the Wild” trailer. In the E3 ad the sword looks more worn than in this latest version.


Another aspect of these two ads fans point out is that in the E3 ad Link had a Sheikah slate, but in the new ad he has no Sheikah slate. This would indicate that time travel was used; at least that’s what a few fans conjecture.


If time travel were to be used in the new Zelda title, it wouldn’t be a first for the series. Time travel was featured prominently in “Majora’s Mask,” and it was also a part of the classic “Ocarina of Time” game.


This new ad also has some people wondering if non-playable characters (NPCs) will be a part of the new Zelda adventure. Viewers can easily see a few NPCs helping Link ward off Bokoblins in the latest ad.


In addition to all these theories, a strange female was partially shown in this new ad. All that could be seen for certain was that this female character was holding a Sheikah slate in front of Link. Many people believe this female must be either Princess Zelda or someone related to the royalty, since Link was kneeling before her.


Nintendo has yet to confirm or deny any of these rumors. Gamers will simply have to wait till they get the game in their hands next year.


Speaking of an official release date, Nintendo has not been specific about when this game will be released for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Amazon currently lists the Wii U version of the game for $50.99 and puts the official release date on March 31st of next year. However, some people think that that date is just a placeholder and believe Nintendo will release the game earlier in 2017.



Theories On “The Last Of Us II” Spread All Over The Internet

The biggest surprise at the Playstation Experience 2016 show this year was the reveal of the first official “The Last of Us Part II” ad. Ever since this ad has been released to the general public, there have been thousands of theories sprouting up all over the Internet on what it means. The ad currently has around 3.5 million views on YouTube.


In this brand new ad, a much older Ellie is seen in a house with a bunch of dead bodies around her. She picks up a guitar and starts singing the song “Through the Valley” by Shawn James. Joel slowly enters the house and then asks Ellie is she is going to go through with her “plans.” After a long pause, Ellie says she is determined to “find and kill every single one of them.”


One theory gaining a great deal of traction online now is that Joel has actually been killed by the Fireflies and is only a figment in Ellie’s mind. The “them” Ellie referred to might be the Firefly organization. This would explain why the Firefly symbol was seen at the start of the ad on a stop sign, and also why all the dead bodies around Ellie don’t appear to be infected.


As many gamers are already aware, Ellie is immune from the zombie infestation that ravages the USA in this post-apocalyptic game. “The Last of Us” was all about trying to bring Ellie to the Firefly’s medical headquarters in order to find a vaccine. Unfortunately, the Fireflies would have to kill Ellie to get the vaccine from her. When Joel discovered this, he went on a rampage to save Ellie’s life. At the end of the first game, Joel lied to Ellie by telling her the Fireflies didn’t need her for the vaccine.


Some darker theories on this ad posit that Ellie actually killed Joel and is only imagining him in order to justify her rage. Some other theories suggest that Ellie might not be immune to the zombies anymore, and that the big gash on her neck is a new bite that’s now taking hold of her brain.


Certainly, the use of a song riffing on the 23rd Psalm signals that themes of religion will be more prominent in this new title. Also, if gamers will experience “The Last of Us Part II” from the perspective of Ellie, this might make her a classic unreliable narrator.


Of course, these are all speculations for right now. Gamers will just have to wait for Naughty Dog to release more ads and information to get a better sense of the plot line and release date for “The Last of Us Part II.”



Delivery Drones Are on Their Way

In the midst of the holiday season many of us are scrambling to find the perfect last minute gift for that special someone in our lives, and trying to find a way to balance the struggles of holiday shopping and arranging for package deliveries within our busy schedules. Now it seems that Amazon has recently come one step closer to making those types of stresses a thing of the past. On December 07 the company took a step toward forever changing the way we shop as it completed its first fully drone-powered delivery in Cambridge, England.


The order, which took only 13 mins from submission to delivery, was the first of its kind and a very early indicator of what the future of online shopping will hold for customers and businesses. Currently, Amazon is only servicing a few local Cambridge residents during this beta program, but there is Amazon Prime Air laboratories already located in the United States, Australia, and Israel as well.


Although they are still working out the logistics of implementing such a system on a large scale, Amazon has cleared up many early concerns in the FAQ section of their website. According to them, there should be no concerns over the drones interfering with other crafts in the same airspace because the drones will be flying at around 400 feet, a level of airspace where only small unmanned craft can operate. They have also stated that the drones will only be in service during clear, daylight conditions and any signs of rain, snow, or ice would leave them grounded.


While the success of this initial test is very encouraging for Amazon and the potential that it promises, we are still a long way out from seeing large scale implementation of this type of system. The Prime Air lab still has a lot of obstacles to work through, such as how this kind of delivery system would be feasible in urban areas and large cities. So, while for now we must continue to brave the cold on our way to shopping malls and wait patiently for our packages to appear on the porch, the future holds exciting possibilities for us all.



No Man’s Sky: An Innovative, Exploratory, Science Fiction Gaming Experience

Space… The final frontier; and that means even on your game consoles, folks! With over a quintillion star systems to explore and catalogue, No Man’s Sky has definitely achieved the record for longest overall playtime in the history of gaming. Heralded and hyped for almost two years before its release, No Man’s Sky flew onto, and quickly off of, store shelves promising an entire universe for sci-fi gaming fans to enjoy. This exploration, combat, mining, and essentially space slice-of-life game allows players to mix elements to create fuel for their spacecrafts, battle sentinels in the forests of back water planets, and fly through thousands of different galaxies in some pretty awesome ships.



No Man’s Sky is the brainchild of Sean Murray and had been in development for just over three years by a small team of a dozen developers at Hello Games before its release this year. In No Man’s Sky the player takes the role of The Traveler beginning near a crashed spacecraft on a random planet in the procedurally generated universe. From there, after repairing the ship, the player can traverse the universe using their exosuit and multitool to mine resources and defend against hostile alien creatures and other non-friendly entities. All the while the player is being guided to the center of the universe by a mysterious force known as the Atlas.



At its core No Man’s Sky is a game of exploration and the incredibly beautiful planets filled with extraordinary flora and fauna give you some pretty incredible sights to behold as you’re making your way through the universe. Based on the optimism of classic science fiction writers No Man’s Sky comes through in providing the player with all the action, visuals, and style of classic authors of the genre such as Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein. However, many players have been less than satisfied with the game’s overall performance and have said that Hello Games made promises during development that they didn’t deliver.



In my opinion though, No Man’s Sky not only delivered, and continues to develop on those concepts through updates and bug fixes, but is possibly the greatest Science Fiction video game released in modern history. With so many games featuring variations of the same old concepts, No Man’s Sky dares to provide an experience fresh and innovative that I feel may be far ahead of their time for many gamers stuck in the same old rut. Regardless, No Man’s Sky is a game that can be enjoyed for hours on end without seeing something you’ve already seen previously during play and is certainly not a game to be slept on.
