Can’t Remember it

Sometimes, when I think a game can be a pretty good one, but have some major flaws, I try do research around it. And in the case of Remember Me I’ve found the issue. The game had it’s developement cancelled and picked up by another publisher. The game clearly shows what it meant to be, but also shows what the new publisher changed, and it almost became a hell boring game.

Starting as a Cyberpunk RPG, focused on philosiphical discussion about human memories, losses and deep fellings, it endend as a action button-smash-betean-up with some really small and uninspiring puzzles.

The art, the environments the details about the world, the dialogs, the conclusion, all of this saved this messed up game. It’s so beautiful to just walk around and appreciate the view (for the ones who enjoy this futuristic cyberpunk theme), engange with the npcs and such.

But the fighting, oh gosh, the fucking fighthing. It’s boring! Only 4 possible combos???? Only X, Y, Y and X. In 4 different manners, against same enemies everytime. Enemies that are nothing special, aside the bosses. Sometimes I’ve tried to just push randomly but only got worse. The platform parts are more boring than the fighting and the top of boredom were the few puzzles. All of this because of Capcom. I would love this game as Life is Strange version. Only memories and walking exploration. Maybe some stealth parts (like The Last of Us).

I’ll keep this as a close one to my heart because I can picture the game original concept and how awesome it could be.

Maybe a reboot in the future?? Crossing fingers.

Run run run, I’m running running running, run run run…

Outlast 2 is the game I’ve ran most in my life. Stealth? Strategy? Smart choices?? No no no. Run little girl. Just run. You can run the whole game. You should run the whole game.

Eventually you will be mandatory dead, even running. But run.

Storytelling side is good. Sometimes confusing, sometimes you just want to run (yes again) to reach the end of the chapter just have some glimpse of understanding.

Yes, same thing as the first, you got nothing but cameras and batteries.

It has a beautiful scenario, even at the most dark times. Yes the story is rich and you have to read, a lot. And yes, some awnsers will only come on DLC, because, yes.

But, I would give game this game a refereal, yes. It has pretty most of the features for this kind of game. Chasers, darkness, running, mid-story plot twists, defenless feelling, running, jump scares, gore, very insane “people”, running.

It was a nice (yes!!!, again) run!!

I don’t know if will be playing again, but I’m looking forward a DLC.

A new tenant in the house

Yes, a new resident, and it’s EVIL!!!!

I really enjoyed this new fresh breath in the franchise.

Top visuals, top environment, smooth gameplay, a hell damned crazy family of bastards that want to mess with your head AND body.

A “abandoned” house, in the swamps, a girlfriend gone missing, a bio-weapon, guns to shoot, what’s not to like? Everything put without much of a fuzz, just go there and figure out what’s going on.

Despite being a “Resident” from a long term franchise, this one could have been launched with any other title name that it would enjoyable. The “Resident” here helps to tie the loose ends and such.

I’ll hook for sure on the DLC’s as soon as “full package” releases.

The Bright Lord Of The Rings

With the announcement of the upcoming Shadow of War release date, my hype is now over 9000!

So I decided to finish the DLC campaing of Shadow of Mordor, The Bright Lord.

A very nice prologue story, wich also enlightened me about Sauron and The One Ring.

Celebrindor pretty much plays like Talion, with the exception of Focus during archering shots.

The plot is simple and show how Celebrindor risen to power and fell to his death, being cursed and who did it.

Very nice, got me more hyped for August, 2017, when the new game will be released.

Beauté

Assassin’s Creed Unity. A giant mess when first arrived, a beautiful experience in the end.

Even against the odds, all the bugs, glitches, bad reviews, bad story (for real), it’s still so nice to run around old Paris and kill and assassinate, and kill and assassinate one more time.

The work the devs put on this game is amazing, the most beautiful scenario I’ve seen so far. Sometimes just running on top of Paris’ houses and other buildings was enough for me to feel the game.

The story is too simple for me enjoy and the only thing I could appreciate was the gorgeous red hair girl.

Being this one the first Assassin’s Creed game I’ve played I can say it’s worth in a sale (the way I got it btw) and your computer can handle all the beauty.

I’ll enjoy going back to Paris again to play the DLC.

Right, Watson?

Well, Holmes did find the Fountain of Youth! In this new entry, Sherlock Holmes got a little less age. Watson too. They both are looking slick!

Holmes also got a visit from his “daughter” (Moriarty’s orphan offspring).

The series never looked so good with all shiny graphics.

The cases are pretty simple to investigate, but the moral decisions and catching the right person is somehow trick.

Putting it in comparison with the previous game I’ve had the pleasure to play (The Testament of Sherlock Holmes), it is less dense and misteryous, but is filled with new action scenes, new mechanics and a very nice clue and deduction system.

Felt somehow short, but I enjoyed playing it.

“Right, Watson?”

Invisible Fun

I’m not found of turn-based games, but this one I’ve tried just for the sake of it being made by Klei. At the end of 4 or 5 days I’ve played it straight forward. The story is pretty simple but it is so well voiced and picturized, just like Mark Of The Ninja – the game that made me like Klei a lot.

So, if I haven’t got all the other “stationary” games waiting to be played, I would replay this one, for sure.

Also, I played it on my 4th gen Core I3 Intel HD 4400 hooked up on a Full HD monitor (game running at 1080), smooth at all times. This is so nice, because even with all AAA titles showing up, a very very nice game like this being able to run on integrated graphics is something I enjoy.

After the game is finished for the first time, it opens a new game+ mode with more options, agents, customizations and such.

Well, stealth + strategy + colorfull things + character and team building = hellyeah, bravo!
