A case of crossed wires

14 dead. 27 injured. 20 jobs. $13,000. I've had better weeks.

They don't let me name names on this blog, but the person behind the hit I was investigating is dead now.

In fact, I may have killed more people than I actually avenged here.

The trigger man's going down. That would have felt good if I hadn't just taken a seven story body slam.

I don't know.

I guess I picked the least shitty of two incredibly shitty sides.

Maybe that doesn't matter. Maybe all that matters is that I now have the ability to kick down doors.

Either way, I think I need 10ccs of ketamine and a Columbo marathon

A fun and funny but not particularly difficult or long puzzle-platform-shooting-rewiring game.

The problem is that it's incredibly primitive; the graphics are about as basic as it's possible to get, the sound effects are rubbish, the stealth system is hilariously easy to exploit and the AI is near non-existent. Some part of me still enjoyed going through the game--mentally treating it as an amusing throwback--but I can't recommend it to anyone. The weird thing is how well it was reviewed, which is the reason it was on my list in the first place. Both Eurogamer and RPS had very nice things to say about it but reading their comments again now it's like they're playing a different version of the game from me. As if I'd somehow accidentally downloaded an old alpha version which had been completely overhauled before they touched it. It's all very weird.

This reminds me, a friend and I completed Metal Slug 3 last night on the Xbox One.

We both used 33 and 34 continues respectively. There's an achievement for completing the game with less than 5 continues.

50. Calendula: a puzzle game with a slight horror aesthetic where the puzzle is how to get the game to start. Essentially each level has you fucking around with the options, title screen, credits etc that you'd find in the starting menu of a game to get into the save files. Every time you do that you're treated to an odd little vignette but those are just sideshows and will glitch out to dump you back at the menu screen facing another meta puzzle. I didn't find it that difficult--though I suspect I was lucky in stumbling across a couple of the answers--and it's very short; about an hour depending on your aptitude for these type of things. Overall though Pony Island does a much better job of this concept.

The various bizarre machines and fucked up objects all have an internal logic that becomes clear from playing around with them which is really the design goal with these things. Good stuff.

52. Oxenfree: a group of teenagers spend a night on a deserted island; weird shit ensues. It's part macabre mystery and part Telltale style adventure. You have more freedom than in a Telltale game because the island is an actual environment to be explored, but the actual story moves forward in a linear way. Your dialogue choices inform your treatment by the other characters, and your ending, but I get the sense that the gist of it doesn't change too much. The characters rarely shut up and some other people seemed to find that wearing but I thought the dialogue was generally very well written and the characters deep enough that it was a big positive to me. The ending felt pretty rushed, especially after a decent amount of time was spent setting up the characters and the plot, but that's probably the only real criticism I've got and I really enjoyed this for the few hours it lasted. If you like the idea of the Telltale narrative adventures but would prefer something that gives you a little bit more direct control then this comes highly recommended and I really enjoyed my time with it.

Is the dialog text or speech?

Speech; and very well voice acted speech at that. The main character's voiced by the person that did Snow White in 'The Wolf Among Us' to give an idea of the pedigree. When another character's talking your possible responses (or a summary of them anyway) appear above your head in those speech bubbles you see. You select one of them using one of the controller buttons; or none of them at which point they'll fade away and your character says nothing. Each possible reponse is mapped to a controller button so picking one is not only easy and intuitive but it doesn't stop you moving around or interacting with stuff which makes it a really nice way of modelling the conversation. As in real life you can chat away and still do other stuff. I should've mentioned all this in my original post because it's a really nice feature and is intrinsic in making the near constant dialogue feel like part of the game and not just something to be clicked through.

I hated it. The characters were annoying; the walking between interactive scenes was long, boring and requires you to keep clicking around bends and stuff like navigating a point & click adventure; the "interactive scenes" are barely interactive and just require you to tune a radio, so it's got much less interaction than a Tell Tale game; there's nothing to do except walk about and listen to the idle prattle; the story started off alright but soon got crap and one guy's voice (one of the young lads, I forget who know) was immensely grating and he wouldn't shut the fuck up. I've played some crap through to the end but this got deleted because it was painfully dull.

Yeah, you should've used a controller, it was just like walking around in any game with that. I didn't find the exploration at all boring, it was never more than a couple of screens before you'd get to something happening (especially slightly later in the game when the time loops start) and the dialogue kept things moving even then.

I wouldn't agree with that either. Obviously the TT games have QTEs and this doesn't but if you take those away a TT game is generally just walking around a scene clicking on stuff and choosing dialogue options, the same as Oxenfree. Unless I'm misremembering TT games, it's been a while since I played any (aside from the painfully fucking dull GoT one).

Imagine you played Bastion, and thought that the narrator was a fantastic idea... What you then don't do is hire a 15 year old emo to write the script to your game. Because then you end up with nihilumbra.

I wanted to rip my ears off.

I believe I said, "It also desperately wants to be mentioned in the same breathe as Bastion but the VO guy is no Logan Cunningham and the actual dialogue is pretty lumpen stuff." so I wasn't quite as damning as you but yeah, the voice work certainly did nothing good for the game.

21) Jotun (PC)
22) Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)


23) F.E.A.R. (PC)

In my eyes this is the greatest FPS ever made. Even by today's standards it's a riotous affair. Every gun shot causes a billion particle effects as smoke booms, papers explode, walls explode, scenery explodes and of course faces explode. It has The Greatest and Most Satisfying shooting in any game ever. The lengthy campaign never got boring because fucking up people's day with deathly brass never once got boring.

24) Sonic CD (iOS)

I hate Sonic. Why does he stand steadfast in the middle of the screen? I can't see shit that's coming up even when moving at a crawl and I'm not memorising level layouts because they're an impossible mess of gaudy colours. I like the first two levels of Sonic 1 (Green & Lava) but every other Sonic can fuck right off.

Impossibly beloved for no apparent reason that I can discern.

I played F.E.A.R. back in 2008 or so and it was showing its age back then. Yes the slomo stuff is cool but every level is a corridor with crates in it from what I remember.

You remember wrong. Mind you, most FPS' are just corridors with crates.

The AI has never been bettered though - even if it is just smoke and mirrors to make it seem as though they've got any intelligence. Those cunning meat bags love getting shot.

Jesus man, play the new Doom. FEAR feels like playing in glue.

If you want a bullet-time FPS, Max Payne 3 is the go-to.

MP3 is third-person, tbf. Doom is a good shout though. Although I gave up when I couldn't do the second phase of the cyber demon due to having already spaffed all my BFG ammo.

That's absolute rubbish.

I regularly dust my shelves so there's no dust gathering games in my house. More fake news!

I finished Doom 7th this year. It was excellent but no one is calling it the best FPS ever.

FEAR is twelve years old and you can still slidekick a man off this legs and turn him to a red cloud. It's amaze.

Do you know, I think I am. I really can't think of anything better.

In terms of visceral joy, can KF2 go in there somewhere? A huge choice of weapons, most of which feel and sound satisfying, a variety of enemies requiring different strategies, enjoyable kills, and great co-op play. Sure, in terms of plot and storyboarding it's almost completely lacking, but I'm not sure that's disqualifying.

I don't think KF2 comes close to Doom for visceral joy.
