It’s the Splatfest of December 2018 and in celebration of SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE, the competition is between HERO vs VILLAIN. Chet join Team villain and explains why. He also keep forgetting to use his special, and doesn’t know how the squid beacon works.
No game has quite captured the greatness of Spider-Man until now. This is a game where you can just web sling around the city for hours. Or at least until you run into one of the many random crimes you need to stop. Either way, it is still GOTY material.
Did you ever know this game was out? Elijah Wood personally came out to show off the game at two E3 showcases. But now the game is out, and not a peep. Also, despite heavily marketing it as a VR experience tailored for the PS4, it’s also available on Xbox One and PC. Which is suspicious, but how does it play? It plays like someone tried to combine Get Even with PT, that’s what it is.
There’s a lot to be said about Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Strap in and prepare yourself. Chet is ready for his signature move: aggressively nitpicking a decent game. How good is this sequel? Well… did you like the others? Because it’s the same. Again.
Everyone keeps saying that Payback takes huge inspiration from the new Fast and Furious films, but if you dial time all the way back to the original releases including 2 Fast 2 Furious (still one of best sequel names ever, shut up it’s brilliant) and Need for Speed has ALWAYS been on the same wavelength of the series. However more recently they ditched that in favor of trying to make better racers vs cops modes and zero’d in on that. Even the new 2016 self titled sequel had a hard time breaking the mold. But the continued success of the newest generation of Fast and Furious films have given rise to a better Need for Speed experience.
As far as reviews go, many reviewers weren’t too into it, but Vega disagrees.
We tried our best to be kind to the game, but we just couldn’t. This game is so rich in story and it is completely destroyed with boring uninspired gameplay. A visual novel would have been more engaging than this dreck. Not to say that visual novels aren’t engaging, I just mean in terms of stimulation, VR is lacking severely.
