Good link between season 1 and 2RGsSeveredHand | June 22, 2014 | Review of The Walking Dead: 400 Days
400 Days follows the stories of 5 new characters. This means the emotional side of this game is lacking as such little time is spent on each character. That being said, all the characters have interesting stories which are affected by season 1 and affect season 2. 400 Days is interesting as it shows the zombie outbreak from many different perspectives. I only wish that more time was dedicated to each character, but who knows? Maybe these character will return in season 2 and if they do 400 days will have enriched their characters and made making decisions about them even harder than others in the series.
Makes a great game even betterRGsSeveredHand | June 22, 2014 | Review of Just Cause 2: DLC Collection
Just Cause 2 is not a serious game and this DLC makes it even less serious. And that is great! Making enemies fly far into the distance with the air propulsion gun never gets boring. The monster truck is also fun to use over the off-road sections of Panau, reaching areas inaccessible by most vehicles in the game. My favorite addition is the hovercraft, which can race just as fast over water as it can on land. And seeing though it is Just Cause, it also comes equipped with a grenade launcher.
There are also a few other guns and vehicles that are quite similar to item already in the base game.
One of my favorite gamesRGsSeveredHand | June 22, 2014 | Review of The Walking Dead
I have never really liked point-and-click games as it always feels like you have so little control over the game. Fortunately, The Walking Dead is different, where every decision you make can have repercussions later on in the game. Many of the decisions are tough ones, and as an avid watcher of the TV show, this ties into The Waking Dead universe very well.
Each of the six episodes is well written and the story leads up to an epic and emotional conclusion. It is a game I will remember for long time.
Decent game, great musicRGsSeveredHand | June 19, 2014 | Review of Rush Bros.
Rush Bros was a fun game to play but it struggled to keep my attention for long periods of time. The aesthetic and the music go very well together and help keep the game feeling fun to play. I soon found that the single player quite boring and most of the achievements are almost impossible to achieve. The area of the gameplay that stands out is the coop which can be fun with friends.
Great StoryRGsSeveredHand | June 19, 2014 | Review of Spec Ops: The Line
The story in Spec Ops stands head and shoulders above most shooters. It challenges the player to think in ways not typical of the genre as you fight through Dubai trying to evacuate its inhabitants. Spec Ops does not try to glorify war and shows the true cost of conflict.
The voice acting is also strong which really adds to the great story even more, with the main protagonist voiced by Nolan North - who also played Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series.
The graphics are amazing. The bright colors really bring life to a desert city. The gameplay in itself is alike to many other third person shooters and is nothing special. But I will reiterate, I got this game just for the story which I had heard a lot of praise for, I was not disappointing and would recommend this game to anyone who likes a good storyline.
Over-hyped, but great nonethelessRGsSeveredHand | June 16, 2014 | Review of Watch_Dogs: Deluxe Edition
It is nice to see the "Ubisoft Formula" is more discreet in WatchDogs which is good for the game as it feels less restricting than in other Ubisoft games such as Assassin's Creed. Recently there has been controversy over a graphical downgrade from the trailer shown at E3. From my experience this seems to be true, however, WatchDogs is still a visually stunning game. The hacking mechanics also give a sense of real power over the city of Chicago. Ubisoft has also succeeded in making a rich and dark story which is exciting throughout. The bonus content that comes with the deluxe edition was also good.
The annoyance is the fact that the port to PC isn't that great - if it was I'm sure reviews of the game would be higher. It seems that many people are currently struggling to run Watch_Dogs. Though in the game's favor a lot of the people complaining have insufficient specs. On a gtx 660 I can run the game on a mix of medium and high settings at about 45 fps, which I was happy with. My only qualm with it is that when I later ran the game with two gtx 660 the results were the same as with one card. This seems to be a common issue as some people with even the highest spec rigs cannot max out this game.
In conclusion, good graphics, gameplay, story and if you have a beefy enough computer, buy it!
