Meant to include this in my last post but forgot.Today is a great day. There's a copy of The Story of Thor sitting in my Mega Drive!
I haven't played a huge number of Mega Drive games. I've maybe played about 50 and most of them were on the Mega Drive compilation for Xbox 360. Of all the games I have played though, The Story of Thor (or Beyond Oasis if you're American) is by far my favourite. I'd say that this is probably the Mega Drive's equivalent of A Link to the Past. It really is a great game and it has really nice, colourful graphics too. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for an old-school action RPG.
So pleased to finally have a copy of this game!
Get The Lion King. It's Nintendo Hard.
I bought Halo 4 recently, but I'm having trouble playing it, I keep going back to GTA IV where I just fuck about on the swings. My housemate is going to buy an Xbox, he wants a JTAG'd one, but he'll settle for buying a stock one and just flashing the drive himself in order to save a fair share of money (but missing out on Homebrew and the like), so I don't imagine I'll actually have to buy a lot of games, other than those that I think deserve my money and I can get rid of a lovefilm subscription assuming he's cool with me using his Xbox (he works nights so...).
I'm so gutted about GTA V getting pushed back, but I don't want a TDKR experience again (getting it, thinking it's the best shit ever and then when I really think about it, it has a lot of faults and could have been a lot better), I definetly prefer a better game than an earlier game for sure.
Has anyone been following The Last of Us? It looks to be amazing, kind of like I Am Alive but not rushed and awful. It's your basic End-of-the-World kind of game (it has a vibe really similar to The Road if you've ever seen that) and you (A man named Joel) basically are escorting a teenage girl (14 year old Ellie) out of the city. You've got 2 types of enemies really, you've got other survivors who'll kill you for your stuff (and I seriously imagine the possibility of raping Ellie), the combat looks to be very realistic, you can pistol whip and throw punches, but it all just looks so natural. You can hold up enemies and take hostages with guns, and you can make weapons and tools like a Molotov Cocktails if you have the right ingredients. The second type of enemy are the "Infected", people who have been infected with a virus or fungus that is somewhat similar to the horrifying Cordyceps Unilateralis, the basic infected just attack as a person would (although they're not really themselves anymore), but they tend to cough a lot which is dangerous if you're too close. Then you get "The Clickers", these bastards have been infected for about a year now, over the years the fungus has deformed their heads horribly, first escaping from your eyes, which makes them blind, but they make a clicking sound, in order to track prey with some form of echolocation. These things are found in the dark, and it is shit scary.
The game just looks awesome, check out the gameplay videos.
Gameplay 1 - This mostly shows off some of the puzzle mechanics in the first quarter and then human enemies after that.
Gameplay 2- Motherfucking Infected and Clickers
