The Lost Child

NIS recently announced that their game The Lost child will be coming west in 2018. I don’t know much about the game itself, but the visuals appear to be typical Nippon Ichi Software style.  Hopfully more details are released soon.

Knack 2 Preview

knack 2

Having never played the Original I wasn’t really sure what to expect in any way. So I downloaded the demo. The demo starts off with a scene about celebrating martial arts more than anything else. This probably has something to do with the first game so admittedly I did’t quite get it. Moving on, you are in a sort of fight pit beating up on some poor dude that I hope was a willing participant but hey who knows. What follows is a very well brawler style game with a few buttons that can be used in various ways to beat the crap out of what is basically 3 different people, one with shield one with a staff and some poor bastard punching legos with his fist.

There is also a mechanic that lets you switch between being bigger and smaller, tho being smaller which is used once or twice during the demo to solve puzzles. Honestly if you are one of the rare people that enjoy that style of game you will most likely enjoy Knack 2 however I did not care for it. Have a great day, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Bethesda,game of thrones?

A long time ago Bethesda was approached about making a Game of Thrones open world RPG, which they chose to make Skyrim instead. Now all this time later target may have leaked a new Bethesda game. A page on the site being reported by Forbes and other places that retailer Target has. A page simply titled Bethesda Game of thrones. Whether or not this is a mistake or intentional or even real remains to be seen but I for one would love to play it. Have a good night and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Honestly, if this ever actually releases I will be surprised. I hope i’m wrong, but despite that it would be fun to see a hybrid retro console with some newer things along with it. I won’t pretend to know how this turns out, but it would be nice to have a 4th console choice.

Sega Forever

Some times something is announced that both excites me and confuses me. This is one of those things.

Sega forever is, for all intents and purposes, games made by Sega free for your cell phone and tablet. With a few games already out including Phantasy Star 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog more will be added periodically until every Sega system is represented. I know some of you are going to be wondering, how does Sega make money on this? Well there will be adds when you start the games up but for a small fee ( $1.99 i believe) you can remove the adds from a game. As of now i have not gotten the chance to play any of them but as we speak Phantasy Star 2 is downloading on my cell phone, look for my review this weekend or early next week. As always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Lets just hope this isn’t as limited as the NES classic, something many of my friends want but only I seem to have. The 30 games are nice and the system and all its parts work just as well as you would hope and i expect nothing less from the SNES Classic. As always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

4 K gaming

XB1X

First and foremost let me start by saying this, earlier this year u went from a low end 1080 set to a low-medium end 4K. But is the graphical upgrade worth it? Yes and no honestly. My first system i ever played on was an intelivision, a system most people seem to have never even heard of and for a time considered the original Nintendo entertainment system to be the epitome of graphical design. For me graphics while awesome are not exactly important. That being said even with games i played before tossed onto the ps4 saw a definite improvement, and when added to the ps4 pro there was an even greater improvement. That being said, i am also one of the few if not only people i know in person with a 4k t.v. so marketing a system as 4K to me seems like a rather large mistake. The PlayStation 4 pro is an amazing system that I definitely but only if you already have the 4k t.v. to go with it, otherwise it seems rather pointless and  have no doubt the new xbox will fall into that same category.  See for now 4K is largley a niche market that most people simply can not take advantage of so marketing a system specifically for that seems like a sure way to lower sales. That being said it wont be more than a few more years anyway until 4K becomes common, especially considering more than a couple companies already have an 8K t.v. in development. (and they are expensive as hell)  4k gaming is without a doubt the future and it is coming fast, but we are not quite there yet despite what many believe. As always thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
