It’s not the weekend! And do you know what that means, my friends? That’s right, it’s time for another Weekend Whammy because as we all know I have no concept of punctuality or time in general. It’s a flaw. But anyway, this week we’re chatting about the UK […]
The Xbox has been hurting when it comes to exclusive games while the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch have been busy putting out strong titles that could only be played on their respective platforms. Gears of War 4 should have been the return of one of Xbox’s biggest franchises, but The Coalition were put in a difficult position having to take over something with such a strong legacy. What they created was good. It wasn’t great, though. It didn’t match the original trilogy. Now The Coalition are back and they’ve tossed away the “of War” part. Gears 5 is looking to bring the series back properly.
It’s another Weekend Whammy! It’s not the weekend? Ah, fuck it. It’s a Weekday Whammy, then, I guess. Anyway, this week I’m talking about Gears of War, lovely Playstation artwork and the potential brilliance of mobile broadband!
Although it’s a massive cliche to say so, playing Decay of Logos was a rollercoaster ride of emotions. The thing about a rollercoaster, though, is that you have to go up as much as you go down. Things must balance out. Decay of Logos, however, was like a rollercoaster that somehow defied the very laws of physics by having a lot more down than it did up. It’s easily the most annoying and downright infuriating game I’ve played this year. At one point I spent nearly 30-minutes yelling at an Elk, calling it all sorts of horrific names. I finished the game eventually, but I’m not sure if it was worth it.
Another weekend has passed into the annals of history, as time marches toward its inevitable violent conclusion. And on that happy note it’s time for another Weekend Whammy! Huzzah! Buckle up meat bags, because this week I’m taking more about Control, Luigi’s Mansion, Aquaman and Decay of Logos.
When it comes to monitors if you have the cash then you can pretty much have it all, but at the lower end of the scale it becomes a case of picking and choosing what you really want. Do you desire those extra pixels? Or do you favour a high refresh rate? A fast response time, or vibrant colours capable of searing your eyeballs? In this case Cello, who have begun bringing their products to the UK, reckon you might like as many frames per second as you can handle and 32″ of screen to go with it. Let’s check out the snappily named Cello W3203SH
Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure is another of those Kickstarter success stories that I love to hear about. It was Kickstarted back in 2016 and developed by a small team of three people from Transylvania, and is yet another example of how not every game needs to be aimed at the broadest audience possible. Gibbous knows what it is and who its for. But is it actually any good?
Right, onto the Weekend Whammy. Hello again my friends, another week has somehow slipped by like a ninja in the night, so let’s jump into it.
The history of Remedy starts waaaaay back in the days of slow motion diving. Yes, I’m talking about the Max Payne games which I first experienced at the tender age of way too young to be playing them. But thanks to my dad play them I did, and while I didn’t understand a word of what was going on I did understand the special magic that Remedy had created. Since then the company hasn’t lost its flair for creating unique things: just look at Alan Wake and Quantum Dream. They’ve struggled to release a big hit, though. Alan Wake did okay but never well enough to get a sequel, and Quantum Dream just sort of vanished into the ether. But Control could be different. This could be the big one.
Hello my little wolfpack of awesome, how are you all doing? Another week has gone blasting past like it stole a jet, snorted some cocaine and decided to head for the Bahamas. That means it’s time for another Weekend Whammy, so let’s get right into chatting about why Control is worth keeping an eye on and WHAT THE HELL SONY AND MARVEL!?
