The Wolf Among Us 2 – 2018

The Wolf Among Us 2
Series: Fables
TellTale Games
Genre: Adventure game, interactive movie

After 3 years from the last chapter in first The Wolf Among Us season of this wonderful game, we can finally start waiting for the second one! We might even get the first chapter as soon as next year, in 2018! I cannot believe this, because I no longer expected it. There’s comics that follow the fable stories, and while I have not read them, thou I plan to, the mere existence of theirs is what made me think there’s no reason to expect a second game. I am so very happy I was mistaken!

 

In a neon-drowned noir type of detective story, a world where humans are called “mundanes“, live people from the fables. The real ones, the dark, gruesome, and scary. These are not your Disney characters. Some of these people barely escaped death, hunted by monsters, witches, or their own parents, or step-parents, as often happens. Princes, and princesses aren’t much happy having to learn to be salesmen, waiters, cashiers, be unable to afford the lavish lifestyle they used to have. They feel like they deserve more for what they were. Much like the regular folk feel they get too much as it is. Those who don’t look human – must buy charms to look human, or risk be taken to the farm, where beings who were either too big, too great to be made look human, or had too little conscious mind in them live. No one wants to get there. That place is a nightmare come true. Tension is steady at all times, and so, while we already solved the mystery of dying prostitutes in the first season, I’m sure there’s no end to bad things that might happen here still.

Cyberpunk 2077 : Classes

According to Mike Pondsmith, the creator of CP 2020 tabletop RPG, upon which CDPR are building their CP77, and at last gave us some details about the upcoming “groundbreaking” game, which we will likely see in 2077, we can expect classical classes!

These said classical classes would be these:

:bulletgreen: Rockerboys – rock stars who use music and charisma to fight authority
:bulletblue: Nomads – corporate exiles blackballed from employment, who roam the highways in in modern tribal gangs
:bulletyellow: At least two different kinds of hackers, one of which use cybernetic interfaces to roam the Internet in VR
:bulletred: And journalists. Because Spider Jerusalem proved them to be awesome too.

Best of all, seems this won’t be the only classes either. How many more? When? Who knows?… As CDRP often says: Soon.

It’ll be done when it’s done

[Game] Crossy Road

Damnation, friends are leading me out the way! One of them just showed me this little game to play on my phone, called Crossy Road. The point of this game is to go as far as you can by crossing roads, railroads, and rivers. You get gold for beating your score, and you collect some on your way too. Then, using that gold you can buy a present, which contains a different character for you to hop with! Those are usually paid, you can buy them all, but isn’t it great to just win one instead?

My favorite so far was the slow-but-fast edition grandma, that forms into a different yoga pose with every jump. And a bunny rabbit that kept bubbling hearts. But the top of them all is this scary cat below. The character changes the look of the game too, making it darker, redder, bluer, filled with jolly things, or Halloween pumpkins. And I bloody love it all.

BioShock Infinite

I had a chance to install and try out BioShock Infinite, which I got for 1 euro back in the day, during some kind of promotion. Tis the season for getting all the Steam cards, crafting badges, and getting extra 2016 Winter Sale cards to sell/trade.

So far I really enjoy it, it’s beautiful, and the reminder of the first games is very smoothly passed along at the very start of it. There’s much to explore, as I see, but I get motion sickness easily, so I’ve two choices: slow progress, or less exploring. So we’ll see how that all goes.

GTA5 in a nutshell

Heist. 4 people needed for some reason, to take this one dude to safety.

1 ran off to wherever the hell they felt like.

2 kept driving to destination that was meant to be reached by water.

We took the guy out, the two former ones took him into the car and went on.

The one from before kept swimming about with a brand new boat, taking out helicopters as they came with rockets. I landed exactly 2 shots with regular MG (I take pilots out when I can).

I thought I’ll just go with them, so I got a car (mine was a bit busted, but the kiddo who rammed into my ass – apologized, so we’re good), and went ahead. Figured I’ll make a cut through the woods.

GPS stops working off road, so I got lost five meters in, I feel. Busted that car up real nice, found the road, took it tidily.

Didn’t make it to destination, got 22k for that.

So in conclusion: WHY ARE ALL HEISTS 4 PLAYERS? Where’s the main-story co-op? Take example from Saints Row. Heck, 99% of the video games out there should take example from Saints Row when it comes to co-op story-telling.

GTA 5


Got my copy of GTA5, courtesy of a friend. For one, I really want to thank you all for all the books and video games you gave me this year (yes, e-books count), it really gave me many hours of escape from the nightmare I live in so far. And if/when things get better, I’ll get back to you, my lovelies.

The past two days it was my little obsession. There’s a lot to do in multiplayer, but I see how many people I co-op with wouldn’t like it all that much. You can and will get killed by other players. In the end, you will kill them too. Stories are real fun tho, much like Saints Row, with tongue-and-cheek humor from NPC’s and childish fits there and here from actual human beings behind characters (I’m not joking, some take taking the wheel very seriously and will leave the match if you don’t let them drive).

There’s lots of cool racing (not just regular racing, but sumo, tron, and such, regular too of course), heists, pick-up-and-take-there missions, HUGE map to explore, lots of small, fun and funny activities. We spent time playing golf, tennis, darts, swimming around, diving, arm wrestling, took a ride or two at the amusement park, went to a shooting range where it turned out I make good time. Yes, been to a strip club, yes, painted my hair green, yes, drove across the ramps, missed by a wheel, crashed into a wall, and got obliterated by a fighter plane.

Mind you, some players are real cool and chill. So play with caution, keep your money in the bank, and make sure you indulge in that radio in the car. Oh, and watch your char. S/he may be mute, but there’s body language that works well.
