That’s a good story. Here's your star. :)

I don’t play that many horror games, though I like them.
To answer the question; Easily “P.T”. We were three people in the room, when I played it the first time and I still lost my shit. There’s a reason that demo has such a legendary status.
The bathtub scene in “Eternal Darkness” was the first and last time I was so… Read more
Still one of my top 3 favorite games of all time. Played it for the first time around 1996 together with my best friend. We couldn’t finish it back then, because some floppy-discs (!) were missing, but we nevertheless had a wonderful time with it and cite it’s dialogues to this day. I found it especially impressive… Read more
Well, at least it's not a level made of ass-hair.
Haha, yes! I played the super crappy PS3-version of “Mass Effect” and after 78 hours or so (I’m a slow-ass player and also wanted to see everything in this game.), not far from the end, the game froze. When I restarted the console, I could only load a save game from around two hours into the game. Read more
That headline sounds more exciting, than the actual game. Looks a little rough, really like a “Yakuza”-coat of paint over an unpolished “Streets of Rage 2“. And it’s only avaible for, what, three days? And only on PC, where probably most of the fans of “Yakuza” and Sega’s old-school-output play their games. Read more
Great question, that’s surprisingly tough to answer. I think both still follow pretty distinct design philosophies.
JRPGs seem more technical and “gamey” from a gameplay standpoint and more artificial and artistic in their “clothing” or style. And that’s great. They’re unapologetically videogames combined with the… Read more
Thousand thanks for the YouTube-link!
I was (and am) an anime fan, but didn’t give a fistful of wet dirt - or mud as the elders call it - about Poké- or Digi- or Goe- or Rae- or Super-Mon. But I remember that I saw a trailer for it,back in the day and that showed a very well animated explosion, which I didn’t expect,… Read more
Sorry, couldn't resist.
Thanks to you and all the other repliers. To clarify: My problem isn’t that I now have to assume, that Ancel is “the one to blame here”, which would be equally premature, but that I put him on a pedestal, before, because of what I wanted to see in him and what I see in Ubisoft and therefore I didn’t even consider the… Read more
Hmm, I have to admit, I feel a little naive and stupid now. I love “Beyond Good & Evil” and also consider “Rayman Origins” and “Legends” to be platform masterpieces. So I strongly believed in Ancel’s creative talent and vision and he seemed like a nice guy from the little I’ve seen. Read more
Second this!... or maybe threehundredthousanded it, because this game deserves all the praise it gets from everywhere. Can't wait what the developers deliver next. Two of the two games they made, are two of the best games ever made.
I gave my PS4 to a friend, so the Switch is on duty. I’m more in the mood for some accessible, arcadey fun and the Nintendo Switch Online library has some fitting offerings. So I guess I’ll enjoy an indicisive mix.
Recently “Panel de Pon” got me badly addicted. A new version would be appreciated.
“The Peace Keepers”… Read more
As soon as I read the title of the article, I knew someone would make such a comment. Seems forced, though. I mean, it’s undenieably flawed and you of course don’t have to like it, but it’s still way more ambitious, detailed and deeper than most of it’s genre-peers. Maybe they failed with it (I personally don’t think… Read more
My god, this shit has gotten so out of hand, I actually had to do some serious research when I wanted to buy certain games when they where on sale in the PS store, because I couldn’t tell which one was the one with ALL the content, which of course doesn’t has to mean it’s also the best deal, because often some of the… Read more
And even different religions and ethnicities don't prevent them from sharing similar shitty convictions. Just sayin'.
Wait, did they include all the male assassins, even of the small download-spin-offs and showed no female assassin? Or did they also left out some of the men? The latter could at least mean they actually forgot the women, because those are clearly underrepresented in this series. (which would still be irritatingly dumb) Read more
There is your typical 2020 news for you. Say what you will, but this game is fucked now. I think some people underestimate what a great game designer Michel Ancel is... well was. The feeling that BG&E2 will get ubisofted already lingered in the background, but Michel always was my beacon of hope for this otherwise incr… Read more
And yet very dark and apocalyptic in it’s themes and events. Never finished it, but it’s always my go-to-example to explain somebody that serious, challenging and dark stories, don’t necessarily have to look lifeless, grey and washed out.
