Life these days is hard. Working a job with erratic hours, it's grad night over at Disney's California Adventure, I'm finishing up a few classes, and I have a test coming up to become a PR specialist for the city of LA. You know what I could use to relax? A ninja cyborg.



If Asura's Wrath is a helluva anime in game form, Revengeance is to me is becoming a Devil May Cry anime crossed with Vanquish and throw in some MGS4 Raiden with more robot parts. The demo years ago gave me a bad sense of how combat can really be. With the full game and one tutorial showing me how to parry, this game got a whole lot more interesting. Endless cuts and slashes, blade mode eviscerating hapless PMCs, and parries that'll make youfeel like a badass as you continue the world's longest longass combo in the world. YAAAASS Platinum Games, thank you based god.

Also, I find the Watch Dogs blow back... interesting. But I suppose that's still the developer's fault for hyping up this game beyond and back. It reminds me of Bioshock Infinite, where people were expecting the second coming of Jesus (or Half-Life 3, which is equally as sacred) and instead got an good game. Not an ok or mediocre game mind you. It was good, but good wasn't good enough for the amount of holy blustering everyone put this game up to be. Titanfall is another recent example, with promises of some sort of digital age revolution and instead it was simply a good COD on steroids and robots. But good isn't good enough. We were promised orgasms on a video screen and instead we get a competent video game that thrives to give us an enjoyable experience with a defined tool set of experiences that are shockingly within a smaller realm of revelations than we previously expected. This game is crap because it didn't blow me away. It's just kinda fun. 0/10.

I'm just gonna pick out one cblog in particular (good job, you're not topsauced but you get double mentions!) and how he calls Watch Dogs one gamey-ass video game that plays like a video game (paraphrasing).


Ok?

It's a video game you say? ZOUNDS!



I admit, it's a trite response to cynicism. But I'm playing a dumbass game where a ninja robot chops other robots in half because they're bad robots/not ninja robots. Earlier this year I played a game where you replayed the same fundamental story three to four times in a row for the sake of a recurring alternate dimension plot device but goddamn was it fun making one character an untouchable ninja killer or grouping casting a meteor spell.

Shut up and jump into a spider-bot, and play some damn video games. For America.

* - Brittany needs a boyfriend and plays a gross game to find out no, maybe she doesn't need one

* - Animes for 2014? Animes for 2014. I'll check out Black Bullet since I've seen exactly 3 "try this" sign offs and I know Knights of Sidonia deserves a shot.

* - Thumb Scar likes long walks on the beach, spiking fools in Smash, and putting long hard hours into Pokemon

* - An East versus West interpretation of Bravely Default's narrative device

S - Spencer reviews EVO, a SNES game not to be confused with Turtle Rock's Evolve

A - The troubling sacrifices needs to make it big in pro gaming. Kenshin dissects it, Legend philosophizes it, Terry just wants to kill it




F - HDV! HDV! HDV! Get those humps!

R - Caube reviews Wolfystein Newerder

D - Making a monster for Reptile Zoo

R - Kyoryu hates the mechanics of Dust and maybe furries too

T - Velour bought a game, expecting a game, and got a game. Cool.

D - Mascot made a game called Magic Miguel, which is actually Mega Man, but it was fun to make so shut up




? - PSYCHO-PASS IS GETTING A GAME ON XBOX ONE and Everyday Legend recommend this anime
