Prepare YOURSELF!

There is no video of me. There is only video of the new Halo. Behold.

This is not what I was expecting at all. Just a few minutes of actual gameplay and what they showed was not good at all. I don’t want to bitch, I definitely don’t want to bitch, but there was nothing, nothing in that trailer that had me in awe. No cool explosions like the Ratchet and Clank, no innovative new matchmaking or battle royal/big team battle gameplay mode. Just 117 shooting some grunts, elites, and brutes. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Not gonna lie. I love this game.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is an updated and modernized version of Final Fantasy VII which was originally released January 31, 1997. 23 years later the story of Final Fantasy VII is still a great story to watch and even more fun to play. The characters are all very well defined and you can easily get the feels if you can’t control your emotions. Barrett - The big brutish leader of an Avalanche strike team(kinda like terrorists.) He is constantly goading Cloud with lines during fighting and after fighting. It’s not just Barrett though, Aerith also gives Cloud a hard time. In one sequence, while just running from one area to the next, Cloud explains to Aerith that she needs to stay back during fights because it is dangerous. It just so happened that Aerith died in the next fight after she got all of the agro and told Cloud after the fight “I guess they were just going after the stronger fighter.” Jeez. There are characters giving shit to Cloud and it is great, the characters are very much alive this way.

The graphics in this game are on a next level. FFVIIR goes from cutscenes right into combat seamlessly. This is a game that makes me feel like I’m playing the cutscenes of the original 1997 version. One level has you hanging from the rafters underneath a plate in Midgar. You are overlooking one of the sectors below. The slums. If I swing my camera around too fast to look over the edge, my wife will turn away. She can’t look, says she gets the feeling of extreme height. You can have your breath taken away by that view and a lot more of the scenery if you take your time and look at all of the detail. Everything is rendered perfectly to fit together.

Grimshade Gouki.com Review

By: goukijones Apr 29, 2019 | 1 Comments

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map. I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”

Grimshade is a tactical turn-based game.  During battle the teams are separated by a line down the middle of the battle field.  You have a small grid to move your characters around on.  It’s not free roaming like Final Fantasy Tactics, you can’t walk to the side of an enemy or get behind them.  Some of the characters have moves that get behind the enemies, but every fight takes place with this virtual line in the sand. 

I started the game on the hardest difficulty setting.  The combat early felt more like I was just memorizing the sequence of attacks from the enemy to be ready to counter.  I didn’t mind this and felt the combat getting more challenging with each fight, especially when I started adding more party members.

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map.  I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”  I have played many games in my lifetime and spent two 90 minute sessions running around this map looking for this one missing item. I had collected two of the three items and the map showed me the general area they were located, but not exactly where.  You can walk right into different areas of the map without any indication that it is happening. So I had the idea of just going around the outside and inside walls to search for the missing item.  When I found the second item it was hidden underneath a floor tile.  At this point I knew for sure which area one of the three items came from. The second item in my inventory I did not know what area I had picked it up in so that meant I had to search both areas again.   This is when the back and forth started for like two hours.  I knew it was one of two areas and I felt like I had completely combed both areas and clicked on everything possible.  This is when I began to think that I may have glitched the game.

Generation Zero Beta Review

Coming in 2019!

Generation Zero Beta Review

We played this together a few times.  We didn’t find the game play very exciting or very in depth.  GrrrtyGirl (My wife) made it clear that she wasn’t having fun killing the robot dogs.  She was bored that it was all you could do in the game. We streamed a session where we are in the dark for over an hour, but at least the fireworks look cool at night.

If you are a Star Wars fan and haven't tried this game, you should really think about it!

When the game was to be released, Star Wars Battlefront II was all up in controversy.  There was going to be a pay-to-win system in the game.  At that point I was already out.  Wait just one moment though… right before the game was released EA announces that loot crates won’t take real money and the system was going to be reworked.  I still didn’t buy it so I decided to watch a bunch of different streams for about a week and then make my decision.  What I saw was people having fun.  A Lot of fun and I was in. 

I played it pretty hardcore everyday for almost 4 months.  I was rank 43 (50 was the highest at the time.) and I had all of the guns and attachments unlocked.  I didn’t have all of the Star Cards.  Star Cards were the packs you opened up to level up your cards.  You could still just play the game and get the ingame free credits and buy the crates to level up the cards.  That’s what I did.  My collection was solid.  Boba Fett was my absolute favorite.  He was eventually nerfed, but I still have good chemistry with the controls.  Star Wars Battlefront II has been a very solid experience for me.  I love the game.
