Kerbal Space Program Enhanced Edition

download (2)

Any long time followers of the blog know I have a love hate relationship with this game. More on that here Kerbal Space Program. Hardest game for PS4? for the longest time the game was basically broken, and not even in a small way. The only way to really play it was to learn how to manipulate a system that didn’t much work, to the point the company de-listed the game and hired a completely new company to make it. You can see that here. Kerbal On Consoles Finally Fixed?

However, how does it stack up? This one will be a bit long if you want a quick is it fixed and good sort of deal, scroll down to the end. If you want the long version where I talk about the PC, the original console version and the enhanced version keep going.

First off, the PC version is the original version and is probably the best version in terms of content. It is further along in development by a bit and has all the mods you can dream of. The controls are nice, the graphics are beautiful and is the definitive version. It also isn’t exactly all that heavy on your computer specs.

The original console version, this thing looked nice but damn was it a broken pile of shit. It would randomly delete your entire game, and not just the one you were working on. All of your save data. The control nodes were kind of like trying to do upper level geometry while drinking whiskey and juggling. Somehow, the game was fun as hell. I played it from the day I bought it until the day the Enhanced version came out.

Kerbal Enhanced Version. I gotta be honest here, this version may be my favorite version. First, I do prefer console games. I love a controller in my hands, tho I do own the PC version. That being said, the enhanced version is far superior to the original. The maneuver nodes work amazing, the ability to switch controls on the fly (pun intended) between rocket and planes in amazing and as always success or failure is just a lot of fun. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Long Dark ( Xbox One)

download

A plane crash, a cold wasteland. The indomitable will to survive. The Long Dark. What possibly is the hardest survival game ever made. You see there is a sandbox mode with a fun little story mode, but the real fun is in the sandbox.

You will be dropped into the wilderness with some basic supplies and thats it. No tutorial, no hints no map telling you wear to go. Just you, the frozen land of Canada and the wilderness. You will need to quickly find wood for a fire and hopfully some shelter before the cold and exhaustion take hold. After that you will need to find warmth, food and any other supplies you can get your hands on.

There will also be a need to go exploring, since things like a rifle, hatchet and other better things aren’t going to be easy to find. You may need to hide out in a cave, or a small fishing shack, where fishing can also be an option. This is a game that is worth checking out, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Deceit (PC)

download (16)

What happens when you have a 6 person team trying to survive, but 2 of them are actually infected monsters with the goal to kill everyone else? You get Deceit, and you get a group so paranoid the smallest misstep will see you shot by your teammates. The 2 infected need to drink blood, and everyone needs to collect items and try to survive. Every so often the lights drop and the mad dash begins to escape to the next area, but sometimes one of the infected might catch someone unaware, and thats when betrayal starts. Sometimes. While trying to figure these things out sometimes people attack the wrong person.

One game I played the team was convinced I was infected. and with only 5 of us left I was killed. The last thing I saw while being shot was the 2 infected transform behind them and attack. It was a beautiful moment of karma. The game isn’t perfect, but it is fun as hell. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Crossing Souls is an action adventure game where a group of kids find a powerful object they don’t quite understand, and must traverse two planes of existence to save their town from a government conspiracy. As the trailer shows it borrows heavily from decades of pop culture references and seems quite interesting, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Gravel PS4 (Preview)

download (11)

Gravel is an upcoming racing game set to release in February and doesn’t focus on one style of racing exactly, there will be dirt tracts as well as sand and standard street style race courses. The game it self looks magnificent and the sound track so far sounds amazing for rock music fans. The race genre isn’t exactly lacking, but this style has left much to be desired for many of its fans and hopefully this will fill that gap nicely. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
