Back 4 Blood, Turtle Rock Studios

As reported by Polygon the original creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, are working on a new game called Back 4 Blood. Not much is known about it aside from the fact that it will be a spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead. They were clear to point out it will have a lot of differences but you can still shoot up a lot of zombies Left 4 Dead style. They aren’t really ready to talk about it and haven’t released any screenshots or videos yet. There will be a campaign, a versus mode and they explicitly said no battle royal and is slated for Xbox One, PS4, and PC and has no release date. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

7’scarlet Review (Steam)

7’scarlet is the newest game developed by Idea Factory and published by Intragames, who full disclosure tossed me a copy to review. I am also kinda glad they did because I truly never would have bought this type of game in a million years. I would have seen it, thought it looked interesting but never got around to it. Why you may ask, well it plays out like a visual novel. I have no issue with visual novels, by the way, they just aren’t my thing. This game may have changed that tho.

The story starts off explaining what is going on, which is you are laying the role of a young woman searching for her brother with her friend from when she was a child. This will lead you to the town of Okunezato which is surrounded by all kinds of mystery and intrigue. From the political atmosphere to the odd relationship between the owner of the hotel and the police officer. I know this all seems pretty vague, but it has too. The entire point of this is the story itself, and it would be wrong of me to spoil that and it is worth the experience. In fact, it is designed to be played multiple times as there are multiple paths to take with various characters. This will allow you to see the entire story and adds plenty of replay value.

The game is also quite beautiful to look at which I feel is pretty important for this style of game since you wouldn’t want to feel like you were reading a book instead of playing a game. That, however, is my only complaint. As aesthetically pleasing as the game is to look at, and as enjoyable as the story is, it is still a lot of reading and kinda felt like one massive cut scene even tho I did have to make choices at times. If you like to read books or visual novels this is a great game, it also was nice to relax with. It just wasn’t very exciting, and if you are used to shooters or action games this may not be for you.

As always tho I judge the games I play based off what the designers were creating and the functionality of it, and with a great story, no serious technical faults that I ran into and nice visuals I feel comfortable giving this one an 8/10, but pointing out it is not for everyone. Enjoy the trailer below that I added because honestly, I love the music. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mola Mola Vivienne — Gaming with Noobs

Theres not much I can say about this game except it’s the easiest 100% game available on steam right now and that is no joke. I purchased the game on a sale for 2 reasons 1 the reviews said it was an easy completion and 2 the game said it had nudity and I wanted […]

RPG Maker MV Canceled On Xbox One

Sad news for Xbox Fans hoping to create their own role-playing game, as reported by Destructoid and many others RPG Maker MV has been canceled for various reasons. My honest guess would be that Microsoft has a great relationship with so many indy companies had some second thoughts with so many free games coming from it on top of the fact that it wouldn’t likely have too many sales on a console not known for doing well in Japan and among RPG fans. This is all speculation on my part of course, so take it with a huge grain of salt. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Elite Dangerous, The Center And a New Station

I know it has been a bit since my last update, admittedly I have been a bit busy with reviews and being sick as hell with the flu, then baby savior got sick. So I fell a bit behind, also I blew my ship up with a neutron star. So yea, been a tough couple weeks. Tho I have caught back up to the next waypoint, that bright blue star is called The Center. It sits next to the very center of the galaxy known as Sagittarius A (pictured below)

It has been well over a year since I had been there. The Center of the Galaxy was my first trip, almost two years ago well before Explorer’s Anchorage was even thought of. (pictures below)

The cool thing about this station is that it was built as part of a community goal for Distant Worlds 2, which I also took part in. Sagittarius A has a special place for me because there is a trophy for it on PlayStation 4 and when I got it the percentage still read 0.0 which means I had to be one of the first to get it, I also helped build the station that sits a measly 3 light years from it. There is currently another community even going on to finish the station and from there the journey to Beagle Point will continue. Hopefully, I will have more pics and updates soon, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
