What’s Good This Week? 9/1/17 Sizzle!

This week we are most excited for Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle Release.  Because we are legit, we don’t get the games before they come out to play but Zombie Zac will have the review for you as soon as he plays it through.  So far the online community is hyped and the reviews seem positive which is great news for our friends at Nintendo.

If you’re like me and you need to trade in your ancient Apple phone for a new one you might be in luck.  A phone announcement is expected to happen during their conference on September 12th.  Sources have it that they will be announcing the release of the iPhone 7c as well as the iPhone 8, which will possibly hold a price point of up to $1000. Steve jobs just rolled over in his grave thanks to that announcement!

What’s Good? 8/23

 

Holy PC!  This week there is enough releasing for PC to warrant you taking off work for the next two years.  For this reason we’ve shortened the list to things we think you’ll actually care about.  Hiking Simulator 2017 wasn’t one of them, but now you know, in case you were solely disappointed.  Also Madden is coming out, again…

In more exciting news this week you can get your hands on the Wolfenstein two pack which includes the previous titles of The New Order and Old Blood.  Many people may have missed this epic series which makes this the perfect opportunity to play an oldie but goodie or gives you a great chance to re-experience this epic series.

If you’re looking for something different check out Thimbleweed on the PS4 or Switch. This point and click adventure game is equipt with some low key pixilated graphics that pack a huge punch when it comes to story.  The developers also throw back to some of their old titles.

If you’re looking toward the future this is the week.  Don’t miss out on the Xbox One X like you did the Switch.  Launch is fast approaching and many retailers are allowing reservations on small quantities of the system this week.  We reserved our own (Because we are legit) and noted that there isn’t much else to reserve along with it.  Many of the previously announced titles have been back dated or were never intended for launch.
You can however look forward to Cuphead which releases September 29
On your Screen: Cuphead has been in the works for a while and has been much anticipated the whole time.  We are really hoping they don’t let us down.  This game has a 1930’s animation vibe mixed with the same volatile nature of animated shows at the time.  As long as it doesn’t disappoint, we are looking forward to a game of epic proportions.

Crazy Taxi Retro Review

Real Talk By: Ms. Throwback

Many people don’t realize that the first game in the Crazy Taxi line-up was an arcade game.  Released in 1999, and published by Sega, this fast paced racing title broke the rules for traditional racing games at the time.  While traditional racing games focused on crossing the finish line first, this titles ultimate goal was…customer service?  That’s right, the Crazy Taxi objective was getting random bystanders to their destination as quickly as possible.

Horizon Zero Dawn Review: Cyborg Challenge

Real Talk By: Ms. Throwback

Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the most anticipated titles to release early 2017.  This Playstation 4 exclusive was offered up by Developer Guerrilla Games, the same people who are best known for the Killzone series.   Being the developers first attempt at a role-playing title stirred up some skepticism.  It seemed like this game could be a big win, or a big flop.  Let’s break down the title so you can decide.

Horizon Zero Dawn is placed in an interesting environment where advanced technology meets a more primitive feeling way of life.  Aloy is our hero proving to be an avid hunter and archer.  The people in this game are living this way due to the apocalyptic circumstances that have recently passed.  Aloy is no different and has learned to protect herself with trip wire weapons, traps, arrows, explosives, and spears.  The tech side of things becomes apparent right away.  Collecting computer and machine parts is vital to survival.  Crafting is also an all important skill.  Fighting the cyborg enemies becomes a true challenge to overcome in this title and knowing the basic skills is essential.

This open world game is vastly beautiful.  The scope is incredible and the enemies are no different.  Many times enemies travel in flocks whose AI is nothing short of amazing to watch.  Rarely Aloy can use hacking devices to turn machines against one another, but the devices are rare so typically she must implement tactics to take them head on.  These devices can also turn machines into mounts or companions for combat.

The graphical involvement in this title is stunning.  Coupled with the art style this title could kill almost any game on the market right now when it comes to visuals.  The character design is fantastic.  The game is made of several different tribes all of which have vast amounts of human diversity.  Dialog between characters can be manipulated to a certain extent although not as much as Mass Effect.  Still, dialog manipulation is intriguing and changes the premise of the story enough to be interesting.

Combat in this game is highly involved and completely on point.  27 “species” of tech enemy are encountered during the game.  Knowing the weaknesses of these enemies is the majority of the battle.  Unlike the combat in games like Fallout, Horizon Zero Dawn requires a more thought out approach.  Upgrading bows and using potions to infuse arrows is important in Aloy’s overall survival and in making sure that enemies are taken out quickly while preserving resources in her inventory.  Thankfully part of her skill includes a concentration move that can slow down time in increments.  Becoming a skilled warrior is what this game is all about but getting too cocky can get you in big trouble because these beasts are extremely challenging.

Questing is also a big part of Horizon Zero Dawn.  Coming across one of the many settlements launches Aloy into the drama that speaks to human nature.  Each tribe is surrounded by traditions and stories that are unique to them and completing the quests they present is highly satisfying if not completely addictive.  Some of the side quests aren’t as involved as they could be but the main quests and combat missions make up for it.

Horizon Zero Dawn™_20170228174248

I truly don’t have many complaints about this game.  I’m a big proponent of classically single player experiences with a high level of involvement.  If that is what you’ve been looking for you came to the right place.  Horizon Zero Dawn is an all new experience with an in-depth story line, beautiful visuals, and intriguing game play.  For the Playstation 4 owner, this title is a must have.

Bubsy In: Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind Retro Review (SNES)

Real Talk By: Ms. Throwback

Bubsy is a series of video games, the first of which was released in 1993 by the name of “Bubsy in Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind”.  It was a multi-platform release Sega Genesis, SNES, and was later released under a different name for Microsoft Windows.  I reviewed this game on the SNES but all versions of the game are essentially the same.
