DGII_PV2_Teaser_US.jpg

 

Demon Game is set to release this Fall for the PS4 and PS Vita. From the company that brought us the Disgaea this dungeon crawler.

The world is Asteria, and it is at the mercy of Magnastar and it is up to the Revolutionist Party to overthrow him. You play as the Demon Gazer and with the powers of demons you must lead the revolution to save the place.

The dungeons seem to be done in a grid based style with a first person turn based battle system. From the creators of Disgaea I am expecting a great story and some good laughs. Hopfully we find out this Fall, and while we wait 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.

Elite Dangerous PS4 review

planets

After years of waiting, Frontier finally brings Elite Dangerous to the PlayStation 4. Graphically it looks superior to the Xbox one version but not as good as the PC version making it visually the middle of the road. That being said none of them look bad. There are a few glitches in the game sadly, in both open and solo play I experienced some rubber banding where I would  move and be ripped back and eventually shoot forward, once it even destroyed my ship. That is few are far between, after probably 10 hours I’ve seen it twice. The sound is pretty much top tier a well with no noticeable issues.

For better or worse, and this will depend on the person playing, the game simply does not care about you. the tutorials are out of game (if you played the xbox version the controls line up perfectly between systems) and if you skip them the game basically explains very little. Outside of one optional mission the game gives you there i no real guidance on what you should be doing. The galaxy is a very large place, and the game does not make you feel as anything more than 1 pilot among the stars. If you are a fan of space or simulation games you should check it out, and if you are a fan of both you owe it to yourself to play it. As always, thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

 

Sega Forever

sega

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.

 

Snes classic

Nintendo has officially confirmed the Super Nintendo Classic is a thing to be launched this year and will include the never released Star Fox 2. More info can be found here.

http://comicbook.com/gaming/2017/06/25/snes-classic-edition-confirmed-closed-door-events-gamespot-managers/

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.

TorstenV

Welcome sign

Just a quick moment to tell everyone a long time and personal friend of mine will now be posting here at Savior Gaming. Torsten V will mostly be covering various nerd culture, books, comics, movies the usual suspects while he works on his own book he is writing, and remember regardless of what he says, he is not a childrens author. Seriously, I have read his book. its not for kids. So enjoy his work and may the gaming gods help us all.

Take Two kills GTA mod

GTA COVER

Now for those that are not a PC gamer or simply don’t keep up on news, recently Take-Two has decided to put an end to what is basically a mod that allows for modding of the grand theft auto game, you can learn more here.

I have pretty mixed feelings about this personally even tho it doesn’t have anything to do with me as a console gamer. On one hand i feel like its their property, if they do not want you messing with it that is on them and it’s their right as the owner. Then I start to finish the thought, while all of that is true they did for years allow the modding community to flourish. To suddenly decide they no longer wanted to allow that they have effectively slapped an entire section of their fan base across the face. I don’t know what goes into making a mod, but i imagine it no different from making a video game on any RPG maker or even writing a blog, both of which can take hundreds of hour. That is no small amount of time or dedication, and while games like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption will sell regardless but I have to wonder if they aren’t playing a very dangerous games with their PC sales. I suppose we shall see, as always thank you for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Square Enix E3

square enix

Square Enix for me was very underwhelming and uninteresting, I actually shut the damn thing off after about 4 hours on day one. That being said there is plenty to talk about, so lets get started.

First is the PlayStation 4 Final Fantasy Dissidia  NT, a 3 on 3 fighting game using characters from the Final Fantasy series as  whole. At E3 many battles were fought, one of which saw Cloud, Squall and Zidane fight on one team using an assortment of skills and moves that can be switched in and out before battles. While graphically impressive, the battles are about 5 minutes long and seemed rather simplistic and not in a good way.

This next one leaves much to be desired for me as i see it as one of the Worst numbered games in the series, Final Fantasy 12 The Zodiac Age. And yes that name is long as hell , for me the characters were always bland and Vaan may be the worst hero in Final Fantasy history, and from what I have seen and read they haven’t done much to change that.

Next up, Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood. now i have to say i know nothing about the game or any of its add-ons. That being said it looks nice and it does exist. Another game I don’t know much about beyond it seems like a Final Fantasy 15 inspired fishing game is titles Monsters Of The Deep: Final Fantasy 15.

Last but not least is the much anticipated Life is Strange: Before The Storm. Aside from being Episodic and free this month on playstation plus and sitting on my harddrive waiting to be played i do not know much about this one either aside from it is coming. I know horrible research, but really i’m using this to really accentuate the fact that Square Enix was in my humble opinion the absolute worst part of an otherwise solid E3 this year. Maybe if we get some info on the Final Fantasy 7 remake or They announce some sort of 30th anniversary collection for Final Fantasy you are better off just reading a quick recap. With that being said, thanks for joining me and as always, may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Far Cry 5

7mKjKAh7E4gcwa3GpQv9MZ-320-80  Once again a Far Cry game seems to have some controversy surrounding it. Far Cry 3 pissed a lot of people off simply because it was a rich white guy in a seemingly African nation shooting black people playing hero. Which hey i understand the sentiment but its a video game. Chill. Far Cry 5 takes place in America, North Montana to be more specific.

The general plot as we know so far is a bat shit crazy Christian cult is basically murdering people and forcibly converting people. For the first time you play a created character that must save the day. Seems like pretty standard game stuff. Good people fight bad people and away we go.

Now here is where the controversy comes in. Many people are now claiming its an attack an Christianity and making white people look evil and some are asking where all the black and Hispanic people are. Well if you care to look up census data and read through it (it sucks) you will see that about 90% of North Montana is white people. Just like when it was pretty much all black people in a nation modeled after Africa. Its called building a believable world.

The biggest flaw to the claim this game is attacking white people and Christians is i personally don’t know any Christians that behave that way. I will even go further and say i don’t know any Americans that act that way, not personally at least tho I’m sure a few exist. At the and of the day if you see this game as an attack on you and your race or religion the problem is not the game, the problem is with you. People in society shouldn’t act the way the people in this game do and the only reason to be offended is either you do behave this way or you want to behave this way, and that is simply wrong either way.

At the end of the day the gaming gods love us all, and we should endeavor to love each other or at least not be a pain in the ass. So as always, thanks for joining me, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
