The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show Movie Posters From Movie Poster Shop

Here’s a weird fact very few people know about me: I have a heart for musicals. Not all of them and no you won’t see me standing in line for Momma Mia on Broadway, but I love the weird ones. And let’s face it, how many movies are as strange as the Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Brad and Janet are two wholesome young people are newly engaged. After Brad pops the question at the wedding of a mutual friend, they decide to ride off to tell the good news to there mentor and friend, Dr. Everett Scott. As fate would have it though, their car breaks down during a bad storm and the couple wanders to a nearby mansion for assistance. What they find is madness, depravity, sexual awakening, desire, aliens, and the perfect lover. Welcome to the home of Dr. Frank N Furter.

This movie is something everyone should experience at least once, musical fan or not. This movie is fun, absolute batshit but I love it. Tim Curry is a legend if not for anything else, it’s his portrayal of Frank N. Furter. The cast is memorable and the music and dances are infectious. The movie is unexpectedly hilarious and heart felt at times. The only real issue I have is the pacing is off and there are a few parts where the movie feels longer than it should and there is some dragging parts. In the end, while this movie sure as hell ain’t for everybody, I highly recommend and may the gaming gods do the time warp.

Marvel Spider-man: Miles Morales

Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales (PS4): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

Six months after the events of Marvel’s Spider-man (PS4) , Peter Parker has taken young Miles Morales as his protégé in web-slinging after demonstrating his new powers. When Peter and MJ go on a job overseas, Miles is left alone as Spiderman, developing new abilities unlike Peter’s, bio-electricity and camouflage. The young hero is quickly drawn into a conflict between the diabolical Roxxon Corporation led by corrupt hipster Simon Krieger and the extremist high tech group The Underground led by the Tinkerer. Can this young hero handle the forces looming against him as well as his new powers as well as trying to be a good friend and son?

I was excited for this game mainly just to learn about Miles Morales. I don’t really know much about him. This game is well written and Miles is a cool character to follow. Gameplay, while similar to the first game, is addictive as hell with Mile’s new powers and gadgets. Honestly, I appreciated the old/new ratio when it came to the gameplay and it stands solid on its own. While the villain roster is way smaller than the first game, the last 2 boss battles are intense both personally and game wise. While the game isn’t overly long and surely I don’t recommend buying it at full price, it’s a lot more satisfying experience than Resident Evil 3 (2020) was. The only huge drawback I had was the glitches- people would randomly appear on the street and rooftops, guys would get stuck in car doors, the textures would get muddy and once my web zip went nuts. While nothing game breaking, these issues do subtract from the experience. In the end, it was a damn good follow up with some small bugs but well worth playing. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 - Official Reveal Trailer - YouTube

With achievements, controversary, microtransactions and toxic player bases, sometimes it’s easy to forget that video games are supposed to be fun. The classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater was one of the greatest chill games of all time. Picking from a list of legendary, classic skaters you can either free skate a series of classic parks, tour each park while trying to complete a series of tasks, or beat your friends high score, all while listening to some awesome old school tunes.

In terms of what came before, this joins Crash Bandicoot remastered in the host of amazing remasters. The game runs silky smooth and looks fantastic, complete with a great playlist of 90’s and early 2000’s music you can control without pausing the game. New additions including being able to share XP amongst skaters between games and creating your own crazy ass parks are fun additions that add hours to the game. I found myself having hours and hours of fun without frustration, reliving my youth. The only real complainant I have is that it’s a game I have to be I the mood for. In the end, this is a damn good remaster that’s a blast for the fans, well worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Empire of Sin Review (PS4)

As always with these things, a huge shout out to Paradox Interactive for hooking us up with a review copy of Empire of Sin. I have been a long time fan of the company and their games, so getting to review one was nothing short of amazing.

The game itself has a simple premise,you pick a member of the mafia and create an empire. I felt obligated to pick Al Capone first.

Each mob boss has their own special talents or buffs, some will make brothels cheaper to maintain or alcohol easier to make, things like that.

As you build your empire you will obviously need to recruit more and new allies to help run and protect your empire. Each new person will want a cut of the money tho, and will even have people they prefer to work with or simply don’t like and have their own loyalty levels to worry about. One particular guy liked me more when we were in a battle and I viciously executed a man for example.

Building your empire will take patience, a willingness to commit random violence and the ability to know when to play nice with the other bosses and when you should probably just kill them and take over their stuff.

The game itself is quite good looking, though as you could imagine isn’t the best looking game on the console. The sound however is exactly what the doctor ordered. The cars and streets sounds sound like they came straight from a movie and while I’ve never believed people talked that way, every character sounds like they stepped right out of Hollywood stereotypes from the classics.

Aa much as I can say I love the game, there were some things I didn’t like. For example at times the camera angles drove me nuts or I’d run into lengths of downtime that just seemed to drag forever. The worst was on occasion I wasn’t quite sure what an option was going to do when I picked it during dialogues.

What really stopped this game from truly being great for me however was the combat. The basics of what it should be are there, weapons to upgrade, a cover system that matters and works. But the maps are pretty redundant and with the camera angles what they are at times I couldn’t truly enjoy what never left being very basic or feeling like it was just an added on mini game in a way. Added to this the other bosses always seem to want to be your friends until randomly they didn’t, usually when it made no sense.

Over all though, the game is a 7/10 for me. I enjoyed it, and I can see where some people would fall in love with this game. I will definitely be revisiting this one from time to time. Best wishes and may the gaming gods being you glory.

Space Invaders Forever (PS4 Review)

As always at first I want to give a huge shout out the my friends over at Taito for hooking me up with a copy of Space Invaders Forever. This is actually one of the first games I played as a kid, sitting on my dad’s lap and his old Intelivision. Yes in one way or another me and Taito go back a couple years.

Over it’s life Space Invaders as a series as made a few dollars, in fact around 500 million of them and has according to legend even caused a small spike in crime and a coin shortage in the very late 70’s and early 80’s in Japan.

As you can see, this as bit to live up to in terms of quality. So some of you may be asking how do you mess up or even improve a simple concept as aliens moving back and forth across a screen towards the Earth as you collect various power ups and shoot them?

Well I don’t know how you screw this up and neither does Taito. What they decided to do was give us three games with some sexy graphics, add new game varients such as one that lets you and up to 3 friends try to beat levels as fast as possible or that combine Space Invaders with Arkanoid and give you a new way to play.

It never hurts to mention Taito makes retro games for the lack of a better term, and just makes them modern. If you somehow hate the very concept of space invaders this won’t change your mind, but if you have never played it or loved the older versions this one is the best I have played. The sound and graphics are top notch and bring the series to a new level, but they haven’t done anything to reinvent the wheel that will make long time fans shake their heads and ask why like so many have, but they have given us options that change the game in fresh new ways.

This one was a blast to play and the platinum is challenging but very much reasonable to get, one I may shoot for. As far as retro games go this one is a 9/10 for me. Best wishes and may the gaming gods being you glory.

Per Aspera Review (PC)

As always with these things, I’d like to give a huge shout out and thank you to our friends over at Raw Fury for letting us check out a copy of this early. I would also like to introduce you to a long time friend of me and @torstenvblog not just at Savior Gaming, but in the real world. He has been with us from day one, he has streamed with us and now he will occasionally be guest writing with us. So without further comment from me, here he goes.

Hello everyone I’m Jonathan and this is my review of Per Áspera.

Now I went into this thinking it was just your average city builder but boy was I wrong if you have ever played Frost Punk and I have then you will feel right at home with this game since the difficulty level even on easy is a challenge.

Now before I start I will say the only criticism I found with the game was not having an actual tutorial system and instead sending you on a blind playthrough of the campaign.

Now it offers campaign mode for the story and sand box which is so you can go crazy building stuff.

Now onto campaign mode which is where I have spent most of my time engrossed in a story that honestly keeps you wanting more as well as keeps you on your toes, you play as AMI a system AI tasked with terraforming mars so that you can bring humans onto the planet, now this is where the game immediately peaked my interest I’m not controlling some builder or humans no I’m a program designed with feelings to try and handle this mission to the best of my knowledge and I for one feel the dev team knocked it out of the park.

If you have ever played Frost Punk you know the game limits resources and nodes are random well the devs took that and did the same here you place your mines on nodes that immediately show you how much they have available to produce for you which means every move you make starts to become critical to the survival of your mission so far the area I started in has a great amount of nodes but I am also playing on easy so I can enjoy the story, you also are granted a tech tree as you progress so you can better your technology which trust me you will need it as power is the biggest issue you will find one issue I saw during this was the game doesn’t hold your hand so mistakes will be made as you progress and everytime you need to make new buildings no hints as to what goes first so it’s all dependent on you and how fast you can react and build since resources are limited until you have a medium sized landing zone or rather area of control.

I don’t wanna get into the story itself I admit I didn’t finish the campaign I don’t like spoiling stuff for people who might wanna buy there games but yes this game is definitely worth a shot if your a fan of city builder games as I call them this one really takes it to new levels and a story that honestly keeps you on edge of what’s gonna happen next so far I give this game a solid 8 out of 10 and that’s only because I wish they had done a tutorial even if small so players don’t go in blind but the game is enjoyable and definitely one to play thank you all for stopping by enjoy and game on.

Below I’ve included some pics I took.

Planet Coaster Console Edition (PS4)

As always, a huge shoutout to the people over at Frontier for hooking me up with a review copy of this one. I have waited many years to play this one but I never really had the chance. That all changed though when they announced the console version.

For those that don’t know the idea here is to build a fully functional and profitable amusement park. You will do this by creating paths, building rides, hiring and firing staff and even setting prices for tickets, food and drinks and even a quick way to skip through lines faster.

PC_July_Screenshot_Assets_09_4K.jpg

Graphically the game is beautiful. From lighting, down to the explosions. Yes I did say explosions. More on that later however. The lighting changes as the day goes on with shadows from trees and umbrellas moving appropriately. It is very well done and it isn’t often I say this, it felt good to turn them off. I mean that as a compliment by the way since I once spent about 10 minutes messing tables so the shade would look right on paths.

I won’t talk about the story because bluntly there really isn’t one and nobody should expect one. That being said if you enjoy the idea of micro managing the building options you are going to be in heaven. Don’t panic, there are easily hundreds of pre-made options to choose from. There is no lack of coasters , shops and rides. But the things you can design are nothing short of amazing. Beautiful coasters, entire malls and shopping districts, piece by pain steaking piece.

PC_July_Screenshot_Assets_03_4K.jpg

All of that means very little if the game doesn’t function well though and many times PC games don’t come over to console very well. Truth be told while the controls aren’t perfect and I can see where a mouse would make building a bit more precise I didn’t have any issues. Frontier honestly really managed to nail the controls here, which in recent years thankfully is something many have managed to do successfully.

As for my final score here, I have to say I was ready for this to be a complete wreck. Which there is actually a trophy for doing by the way. Build a coaster, and create a coaster that involves around 300 guest I believe it was. Yes, your coasters aren’t automatically successful. You need to worry about gravity, will they make them sick? Do they even enjoy it? Do you even care to finish it and instead want to launch them up into the air? Not that anyone would do that. Anyway, this game is aa 9/10 for me. Any fan of this type of game really needs to give this one a go, and buy the DLC, it adds some cool rides and such. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Visage Review (PS4)

As always, first thing is first a huge thank you to the guys over at Plan of Attack for hooking me up with a review code for this one. It is always great to be considered and even better to be chosen.

The first thing to cover is the graphics, they obviously are not AAA quality but you shouldn’t expect them to be. They are still both beautiful and creepy as hell. They serve their purpose magnificently and truth be told, I wouldn’t change them at all even if I could. The way lights flicker during certain events and things seem to just flash on the screen. As a life long fan of horror movies and games, I was excited to play this game but I was quite nervous. It looked great, but I wasn’t sure it would deliver.

The sound, was 100% what it needed to be. The subtle moans or or creeks you can hear in the background at times are outstanding. When a lightbulbs break they sound pretty much like real lightbulbs. When you slide a door open and and enter a room and you hear the static on a T.V. it all just sells the experience in ways that I couldn’t have asked for more.

I won’t get into the story because that was my favorite part, but I will say this, it is dark and beautiful and SadSquare has my respect for being willing to tell the story they did. In good conscience I can’t forget to tell you the opening is essentially the reason trigger warnings exist. It doesn’t shy away from the story is telling. These things aren’t done for no reason and it will all be explained. It isn’t there for shock value.

The controls themselves work well, though the first person thing isn’t really my thing it is pretty cool and I thought using the L and R buttons to pick things up and such was pretty awesome. I liked to just randomly pick things up and move cups and stuff. It didn’t serve much of a purpose but I did enjoy putting cups on on random shelves. I am easily entertained. The actual purpose of this is to put candles for light on plates or on candle holders that are placed around and to fix lights.

Now the part we are all waiting for, is this game worth buying? Quite honestly, Yes. Absolutely yes. Fans of horror games need to add this to their must play list. This game is an 8/10. With multiple endings there is plenty of reason to play more than once, and each one changes more than enough to make them worth seeing. It is 100% savior approved. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Farming Simulator 19 Alpine Farming Expansion Review (PS4)

First thing is first, as always, a huge shout out to the guys and gals over at Focus Home Interactive for giving me a review copy of this expansion. Anyone that follows the blog knows I am a huge fan of the series and have been for years. For those that aren’t familiar with this expansion here is the launch trailer.

This expansion has a lot of content, starting with a new map. Of course this is where I started things. I was surprised to discover, cows. Yes instead of the typical have some fields and machines to grow and harvest some crops you are given a couple cows, some money and the machines you need to feed them.

This is your first taste of the new things in the game as you can instantly just walk over and grab the walking mower.

This thing is oddly relaxing to walk around with.

The new map is honestly one of my favorites in the series, it is simply beautiful. It also may be one of the biggest in the series, but that I truthfully can’t say. The views are great though, and if you are like me and you occasionally just like to go for a quick drive around the map this is a great place to do it. That all doesn’t matter because while the map is great, is there anything new to play with?

The answer is a resounding yes. There are around 30 new ones, many of which I still haven’t gotten to play with. There are new small tractors, plows and cultivators from companies like pottinger, Sip and Rigitrac. As you would expect they all function amazingly and serve a specific purpose. Many of them actually made raising animals for me much easier.

This one is just fun to drive, and I LOVE the look.

The only really down side to the expansion is simply this, if you don’t love Farming Simulator, this isn’t going to change your mind. This is more of the same, and for fans of the series that is what we wanted. We have more things to play with, new ways to raise our animals and a new place to do it in. Honestly, that is all I really wanted and expected from it. For fans of Farming Simulator 19 looking for a reason to step back onto the farm, this is it. A must own expansion for fans. 9/10, pretty much everything an expansion should be.

Vampyr

Vampyr on GOG.com

Dark, English towns where mists billow cobblestone streets, amongst the ladies and gentlemen fearing a plague…so how about we add vampires into the mix? Vampires rival zombies as the most popular of horror fiends in American culture, and while there have been plenty of games involving the children of the night, I can’t say I’ve played many of them. So what did this offering from the current console gen bring?

The year is 1918 and we play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a surgeon and physician freshly returned from the trenches of WWI to his sister Mary. After a run in with a stranger, Jonathan is bitten and in the midst of an unholy suffering, he’s thirsty. In almost a trance, he kills Mary, draining her of blood. Besides the unquenchable blood thirst, Jonathan finds himself with super strength, speed, stamina, reflex a s well as a host of deadly powers making him a apex predator in civilized society. Rescued by a Dr. Edgar Swansea and given a job at the rundown at Pembroke hospital, funded by fellow vampire, Lady Ashbury, it’s up to Reid to shape the fate of the city and face the horror of what he has became as well as find his maker.

There’s nothing that burns worse than art in any medium that’s not lived up to it’s fullest potential. Vampyr is a prime example. First, the story and characters kept me going through the game. Reid is a sympathetic character I enjoyed playing as that never felt too sappy. The other characters I also really enjoyed, on top of the scenery and score that channel the classic, gothic vampire movies I grew up with. There’s the highlight. In theory, the list of powers you get are impressive but the inventory loadout doesn’t allow you to experiment with much at a time. While I loved plunging London into absolute chaos, that’s honestly you’re only real option. The game deals heavy with the karma system and if the base mechanics made sense, it’d be quite effective. Combat, which stales quickly, offers dismal XP and completing missions offers little more; most of your XP comes from mesmerizing and feeding off of other characters. You’re mesmerize level only advances as you progress the game but there are prompts to snuff characters you simply can’t yet. Without slaying every character you can, leveling up is a absolute crawl and the game becomes insanely hard. I hate the inventory system which feels really small and doesn’t get much room to expand. The character UI and AI are stupid as hell and randomly the game breaks into sometimes lengthy loading scenes. The game becomes repetitive after the first big boss was introduced. In the end, the game is a irritating slog but the good story and characters may keep you around. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
