For you Two Worlds II fans there is a new DLC (Two Worlds 2: Call of the Tenebrae) releasing on May 25th (6 years post launch) that will add about 10 hours of gameplay.

I've read a lot of random and bizarre news over the years, but this one takes the cake. This game was a clunky mess, no?

Thoughts on Overcooked SP ...

Some say it is OK, some say it is horrible. I know it is a couch co-op title first and foremost, but would be interested in SP mode also.

New Games with Gold for May:

 

 

XB1

Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Director's Cut

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

 

360

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga

Hmm, I don't know much about Giana Sisters but it's a hardcore platformer with phase shifting, hmmm I'll give it a go.

Spoiler

LC&tToS has been on sale multiple times, I believe I grabbed it with the Season Pass bundle they had at a discount.

Hmm, haven't played SW:tFUII, that's a plus.

Man, Lego SW:TCS haha, was the game that came with my 320GB hdd for my 360 and I still only just play it when someone comes over - it's a great co-op title.

Is that video old because at the end Major Nelson says your game will appear on the Ready to Install screen but wouldn't they be on Memberships. The games would show up on Ready to Install if you've already had them for 360 and they were Backwards Compatible though.

More of the same, but less of it. It's incredibly short from what I've been told. It's been at the very back of my backlog for about a year because of the "meh" reviews I've heard.

It's now Sublime with Rome

 

https://en.wikipedia...blime_with_Rome

That Rome guy sure has a nice voice, but damn the music they've written is terrible. Also, Bradley Nowell wrote and sang 99% of Sublime's music. Hiring a guy to replace him and still use the band name is like if Dave Grohl and Kris got a new singer and toured as Nirvana with Steve, it just doesn't make any fucking sense and is clearly a cash-grab. Velvet Revolver wasn't GNR with Scott, it was Velvet Revolver.

Didn't know anything about Giana Sisters either but I've been on a 2D kick lately so this sounds great.

 

Also, the SW Lego games are the kinda games I want to play but don't want to pay money for, so this is good news as well.

Enjoying Yooka Laylee for what it is. It is defintely a great throw-back 3D platformer. But my God, the camera and controls can be real bullshit at times. The camera is wonly as hell (just like you remember from the 90's) and the controls are floaty and occasionally imprecise (also just like you remember.)

 

Things is ... I can't tell whether they purposely borked the camera and controls to give it that old school 90's authentic feel - b/c if they did, it is annoying as hell.

 

Have to say I agree with most of the reviews ... a good throw back, but a lot of missed potential for it to be polished into a really great game .

I just bought a few weeks back the game: Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris via a sale on Amazon/digital for the PS4. Oh well, now I will have it on both systems I guess. I already own Lego Star Wars but I think for the PS3 so I can play it on XOne soon.

Yeah they should have gone with

Call of Duty: Nazi Shoot Pew Pew World Mother Trucking War II Balls Out Edition

Nah I think if you want to sell a lot of Call of Duty games calling it Call of Duty WW2 will sell buckets of these. I bet a lot of ppl that dropped off over the past few games will pick this one up. I know I skipped last years and will prob preorder this one.

I've read a lot of random and bizarre news over the years, but this one takes the cake. This game was a clunky mess, no?

Second one has some funny as hell dialogue. It was basically a billion times better then the first two worlds, but still many steps below Skyrim in terms of enjoyment. I just hope they make it BC sometime when the DLC is out. The developer also mentioned the DLC coming later for 360/PS4. Whether PS4 was a typo or not I'm not sure.

 

I own 2/4 of those games and one is PS+ which I'm letting expire in June so I'm happy with that (Lara Croft) and Lego Star Wars Complete Saga on disc so digital is always welcome.  Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 I heard is more of the same of the first one but even shorter, which is good for my backlog I'll play it ASAP and beat it ASAP.

 

Giana Sisters hits me hard because I'm old like some of you. I'll never forget the infamous Mario lawsuit that never actually happened.  https://en.wikipedia...t_Giana_Sisters

I own a shrink wrapped copy of 2 that I got for $5 a while back, this is a weird announcement. I don't know exactly how 2 plays but heard it's much better than the first so I skipped it. I like first person RPGs and had already played oblivion and Skyrim so figured I'd check this out eventually.

SIX min WHISTLE

Posted 21 April 2017 - 05:23 PM

I'd say quite a bit worse overall. The gameplay itself is fine, but virtually no additions over one. They really pushed dual lightsabers in the promo material like they were a huge change, but functionally they do nothing. Lightsaber attacks are still just one button press so while the combos look different, they aren't any deeper.

 

Story-wise, the first game definitely wrapped up the story the way they intended, so there was nowhere to really go for a sequel. They took the only semi-viable angle Star Wars could really provide at the time, but I felt they squandered it. One of the biggest problems for me was learning that a HUGE plot point is locked behind collectibles, without which the ending just comes out of nowhere. 

 

I think the biggest downfall is just how short the game is. The first TFU is fairly long, with like 10 or so unique levels that are totally different environments a lot of good boss fights, totally around 12-15 hours I think. The second game only had 4 levels if I remember correctly, with one environment being reused, and the bosses are fewer and worse. Just beating the story is about 4-5 hours.

Didn't Sublime's singer die like 20 years ago? Everything else except maybe Sevendust sucks.

 

 

The Lara Croft game on 360 is different, this is the sequel. Pretty decent month overall. I hate a lot about Force Unleashed 2, but it's worth playing for free if you like the gameplay. I'll probably check out the DLC. I don't remember if it launched at $1 but it dropped down pretty fast if not because of the poor reception to the game overall.

Wait, so the games are different on the 360 and the X1, even though they have the same name?

I'm interested but only if they do away with the season pass bullshit. EA seems to be moving away from this practice and I hope Asstivision follows suit. It's a long shot but still. A man can dream.

360 one is called Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and the Xbox One one is called Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris.

Stoked for Leto Star Wars, my son loves playing co-op with me. I hope it leads to several Leto Star Wars games going BC, as he loves the Clone Wars game too.


Is this a Star Wars game starring Jared Leto?
