Butler posted a topic in DiscussionsFade to silence is a title that actually came out april 30th 2019. Set in an unforgiving frozen post-apocalyptic wasteland. You play a man named ash who’s trying to protect his daughter, Alice from the terrors of the horrific atmosphere. It’s single player but you can play with a friend. It’s very dark souls like for it’s slow yet strategic combat, having difficult enemies where you can approach the situation in any way you like & you can even choose to completely sneak pass your enemies. Having to think & make choices of whether or not to engage the enemy can lead to success or even death encouraging risk versus reward. There is a permadeath mechanic, after dying too many times where you have to start the game all over only keeping a few perks to make your next run easier. The enemies are not the only thing you have to worry about but the environment as well for being cold, treacherous and literally you stand against the elements of the cold, blizzards, & Ice tornadoes coming after you. You have to find warmth, food, & shelter to survive with managing your resources wisely, in an area there is a limited amount of respawns pushes you persevere & can punish players for not being prepared for every situation. It’s a very harsh yet thrilling mechanic that tests your survival skills in the game. Of course there is crafting, & building mechanics into the game where you can craft tools, clothing, & weaponry but keep in mind of your resources as you go along. In the game you can come across other survivors that you can recruit in your camp or bases that you have created which you can send them to fight with you, each having their own pros & cons, or go out to collect resources for your base. You can also have a dog sled which lets you travel fast to where you need to go. This game is available for the PS4, PC, & Xboxone. Opinion Piece: I think this game is very thrilling, needless to say of my dark souls days bringing that rush & satisfaction of difficulty, yet, I don’t think this game is for everyone. Since, it seems very slow, yet deliberate in some aspects for a more hardcore yet patient player. Having the permadeath, limited spawn, & harsh environment it might frustrate your usual (Notice I didn’t say casual) gamer who’s more accustomed to the fast paced & with less mechanics that are designed to punish the player if they don’t play how the game is intended to be played. Yes, the graphics don’t seem to be ‘up to date’ for 2019 standards on the ps4, nonetheless it’s overall aesthetic hits the nail on the head for it looks like a very cold, rough, & deadly world you are suppose to survive in. Now, I don’t have this game, nor have I played this game but it doesn’t seem like it has a strong story as far as I can tell. I believe the value of this game is to achieve survival against all odds. What about you guys? What are your thoughts? Would you play this game? Do the graphics stop you? Let me know!
Butler posted a topic in DiscussionsIn just 72 hours reaching 10 million players after launch, in which took fortnight two weeks. Apex Legends reached 1 million players in 8 hours after launch, & then 2.5 million after one day. It is also the most popular game on twitch currently with over 270k viewers on the video game streaming website. Apex Legends is based on the Titanfall universe by Respawn. The game was released as a surprise free to play title on Monday. Taking the battle royale genre & adding an Overwatch twist, having characters with their own unique abilities, each having their own ultimate, & play-style. Opening with 8 diverse characters you can play with: Up to 60 players start simultaneously on the map, the area is gradually narrowed over time until there is only one player standing. Players start off with no weapons, ammo, or equipment & must collect them on the map. Team members can be revived for a period of time. According to The Publisher EA, no “pay to win” is possible. Like Overwatch, there is a focus on teamwork having a smart non-verbal comms system & bonuses for working together with your three-man squad. Having these features & strong gameplay gave Apex Legends critical acclaim & exposure contributing to receiving a strong player count. Respawn has plans to introduce Fortnite-like battle passes & more content to further monetize Apex Legends. Right now, the game is offering the purchase of ‘Apex Coins’ to buy cosmetics & potentially unlock two new characters. You can also earn cosmetic items as you play the game or leveling up by opening ‘Apex Packs’ which are the game’s loot boxes. There is in game currency called ‘Legend Tokens’. If Respawn keeps the dedication of content, & updates for Apex Legends they might even reach & even surpass the success of Fortnite. All of this will even give a future game based on the Titanfall universe a boost releasing later in 2019. Apex Legends is a first person shooter available for free on Pc, PlayStation 4 & Xbox One. Opinion Piece: This game nonetheless looks very interesting, colorful, & gives me ‘borderlands’ vibes. It introduces familiarity to those who play any battle royale game & those who like me, play hero shooters like Overwatch. It’s seems to be a combination to bring the best of both worlds. Which I feel to be promising because of the potential of future characters introducing more variety & replay value to the game creating a refreshing take on the battle royale game genre. Therefore, I do believe this game might kill Fortnite that is if they do everything right. I do like the fact that there’s a focus on teamwork, how you get rewarded for that. I like that it has executions, a healing class, & unique characters with unique abilities. I do feel reassured for the fact that Respawn seems to show dedication by making promises to deliver more content as time goes by yet, knowing that EA is the publisher leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Having a history of shady & money grubbing practices on their products, It leaves me to wonder how EA might ruin this potentially delightful game down the road. Personally, I will refrain from buying with real money for now. I haven’t played the game yet, but I will update this article with my thoughts on it. My hopes are that Respawn, is mainly in the driver’s seat & EA refrains from turning this game into purely a cash cow, destroying the gameplay experience for consumers, & crashing & burning down the game itself. Only time will tell. What are your thoughts? Let me know. Do you think this game will kill Fortnite? Why or why not? Did you play this game? If so, how was it? If not, Do you have plans to play this game? Do you think EA will ruin this game? Why? & How do you think they will ruin it? Sources:
The Last Of Us Part II, is a highly anticipated sequel of The Last Of Us. For those of you who don't know/never played The Last Of Us, It is a third person action survival-horror game that is set in post apocalyptic united states. You get to play as the main character named Joel who is a smuggler, who has to escort & protect a young girl named Ellie from cannibalistic humans that are affected by the Cordyceps Fungus. In the game, you can use guns, craftable weapons, & stealth to survive: The first installment also had multiplayer which, you can pick your faction in Factions Mode where you can choose to be a Firefly or a Hunter. Once you picked your faction you can pick between three multiplayer modes: Supply Raid (TDM), Survivors (TDM, One life.), & Interrogation (Somewhat similar to CTF except it's a safe). You are able to kill enemies, revive allies, gather supplies, build your class, & customize your character with hats, helmets, masks, & a emblem. It is available to be played on ps3 & ps4 (The Last Of Us Remastered). The Last Of Us was highly praised for its gameplay, story, & considered to be one of the best videogames ever made all of which, The Last Of Us Part II has to match or even top those expectations. The Last Of Us was dark, gritty, & intense. The Last Of Us Part II seems to carry on the same intensity of its predecessor: The Last Of Us part 2 is a Ps4 exclusive, It takes place years after the events of The Last Of Us & You get to play as Ellie. No release date has been announced yet, but the pre-order is available now (For the Standard Edition). The details of the pre-order bonuses have not been revealed as of right now at the time of the writing of this article. The developers Naughty Dog, confirmed that The Last Of Us Part II will have multiplayer, Factions Mode will return yet, details about Factions Mode haven't been revealed at this time. Opinion Piece: I'm very excited for this game to come out, and I can't wait because I have played the first game. I have many fond memories with the first game playing the story, & playing online. The first game was very exciting, & it was fun because it was hard especially when playing online: Earning a kill, & executing players felt extremely satisfying. Especially since, there were different executions with different weapons. There was also the fact that you could booby trap by setting bombs by the doorway so a clueless enemy will unknowingly trip it & then get downed. Also, there was a great variety of weapons & craftables that were balanced well so, all that it would come down to when it's just you & the last enemy player is skill, patience, mind gaming, & to make sure that you were the one to down them first. If you were skilled enough you could pull some hardcore clutch plays: I really hope Naughty Dog brings & tops the quality for the story/gameplay for The Last Of Us Part II, especially in the online multiplayer. My main questions that came to mind are: How long/big is part II? Are there any mechanics removed? (Please, do NOT do this.) Are there any mechanics added? (Yes, please DO this.) New enemies? Factions? Will multiplayer be the same? if not, what differences will be brought to the table? Will there be more multiplayer game modes? Will we see more weapons/craftables/customization/executions in part II? What pre-order goodies will there be? Will there be DLC that expands on the game/story/multiplayer in the future after release? Where is Joel? Is he even alive? Can we play as Joel at one point? Did he & ellie decide to part ways after awhile? If so, what happened? Is humanity more pushed back than it was before? If so, how far? When Is the release date? Ellie, are you okay? I am hyped guys, & I hope the release date/announcement is soon. What do you guys think? Are you looking forward to The Last Of Us Part II? Have you guys played the first game? (If you haven't, seriously play it!) What do you guys hope/wish for part II? Are you going to Pre-order Part II? Other thoughts? Let me know! Personally, I'm going to wait to preorder because, I want to know what pre-order goodies will there be first for all editions. After that, I will decide from there what to do next.
