I am hooked on Sundered. Even though it didn’t get as good of reviews as Pyre, it has pulled me completely away from that (also great) game. Just gets better and better the deeper you get in. And while very difficult, keeps the upgrades coming well enough to allow you to get further and further from run to run. And I haven’t even gotten to the first boss yet!

Yeah I loved it. It's addictive and the combat is great and the exploration and leveling is fun. I gave it a 9/10 on the site I reviewed it for. Structure reminded me a lot of Rogue Legacy, another amazing game.

Headlander - Definitely getting.

 

#Killallzombies - Not sure. Doesn't seem to be a lot there, and what is there reminds me of Crimsonland (which I just played thru recently and quite enjoyed). No cross buy, would prefer on the Vita. Seems to be a better buy at like $2.

 

Xenoraid - Speaking of $2, cross buy with Vita, and Crimsonland (same developer). Though everything I get from online seems to indicate it gets very samey and nothing really stands out about it.

 

Any opinions on #Killallzombies or Xenoraid?

 

Killallzombies is... pretty good?  It's definitely Crimsonland-y [survival mode], but Crimsonland is better.   But it's not bad.  You fight, get to pick perks, etc.  I paid full price and was let down, probably would have been thrilled at this price.

 

Xenoraid is okay if you're willing to dedicate yourself to it.  It's a little soulless, but if you go zen on it there's fun to be had.

Haven’t really been following Hellblade much but does look promising. Is it going to be Dark Souls/Nioh difficult?


No, the game's focus is storytelling. It has combat, but it's not the entire focus and won't be Dark Souls like as far as difficulty. Their main focus in the game is portraying psychosis accurately

Haven't really watched a ton about it.  Kinda wanting to go in blind.  Doesn't seem like it'll quite follow the Heavenly Sword level of action though.

Super excited for Hellblade.  I forgot it was coming next week. Love supporting NinjaTheory and I haven't been looking forward to a game this much in a long time.

Just watched a few videos and I'm not sold on Hellblade. The combat doesn't look anything like what I was expecting from a Ninja Theory game.

Just watched a few videos and I'm not sold on Hellblade. The combat doesn't look anything like what I was expecting from a Ninja Theory game.

Yeah every gameplay video I've seen of it has looked incredibly unappealing. It doesn't help that every time I see comments/interviews from Ninja Theory they say that the focus of the game is on the world, atmosphere, story, etc. 

 

Nothing wrong with that but it's not my cup of tea, will probably only pick it up heavily discounted (or from ps+ if it ends up there).

Curious, decided to finally delve into the Ratchet and Clank games starting with the first one from the HD collection and...well, how well does the rest of the PS2 series hold up? Playing the first one and man, it does not age well at all. Everything from the dialogue, characters. the pacing, lack of checkpoints and ESPECIALLY the camera is making me ready to just skip this one and go to the next unless the PS2 ones all feel the same.

The first game held up really well to me when I beat it a few years ago, but camera and control-wise, the second game improves upon it with a more modern, stable camera and strafe controls for combat that became the series' standards from then on. Same goes for the leveling mechanics for the weapons.

I Don't know, first game isn't really clicking for me. Like I see the foundation for a good game, but there are so many small gripes I have with it (plus two generations have passed since it was released) that my backlog is also making me want to push forward to something else instead of going through this. May try the second and see how that goes, thanks.

I'm still hooked with Pyre! Been playing it non stop since I started. There's a Ton of lore but everything is pretty good. The Sport Style game is pretty awesome. A little further down the line the game becomes harder and the AI is even better at strategy. Love this game.

The strafing alone that was added in the second game makes a world of difference. At least give that one a shot before you give up on the series.

Started Going Commando last night and yeah the gunplay doesn't feel as much of an afterthought in this one and the camera actually feels more reasonable so I'm enjoying it so far. Though I still find it odd they decided to continue not using the d-pad as weapon selection , but instead as a another means of movement controls. Those were some odd, dark times...

Thanks for the input (and to the others that chimed in as well).

 

I have decided to go with #Killallzombies this time and skip Xenoraid. As long as #Killallzombies is competent and gives a little something different, seems like a worthy purchase, since its in a genre I like (and cheap). But with Xenoraid, some version of "soulless" shows up in most descriptions of it I found here and elsewhere. I'll be happy to try it out if it goes PS+ (and I'd bet it probably will eventually).
