It's a shame this game isn't available on the PS4:


It looks interesting. Anyone played it?

Kyoei Toshi (City Shrouded in Shadow) for the PS4, a SF survival adventure game, that puts you as ordinary citizen in the middle of a city under attack by an all-star cast of Japanese giant icons (and apparently a bunch of Yakuza).

If this ever get a localized version for North America...

City Shrouded in Shadow looks superb and I'm a big fan of the company's Disaster Report games.

Might have to just take the plunge and import a copy next month.

I buy one video game a month. This month it was SONIC MANIA. I am so looking forward to playing it, I might even quit the forum to devote my time to it exclusively!

Anyone else getting excited about tomorrow's release of WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS?  The first game and its DLC was a ton of fun, so I have high expectations for the sequel.

I don't really like FPS games but I have promised a friend that I will give Wolfenstein II a go.

Time for my monthly purchase of a video game (one a month for me). This month, I'm considering TOTAL WAR: WARHAMMER II.

Graphics are not the be-all and end-all (playability first and foremost!), but the graphics certainly have knocked my socks off, based on what I have seen. Yes, I think this month's purchase will be that.

The main campaign? Pretty flipping amazing!  My only disappointment, as we discussed while navigating the co-op experience this week, was the deceptive marketing at play.  There is no true co-op in this game, certainly no campaign co-op although they advertised it as the first CoD as having just that.  I know people love the CoD Zombies portion, but I'm not a huge fan.  I really can't stand "waves" of increasingly difficult villains.  I get it in a side scroller or an old game like Space Invaders (wow, I'm dating myself) but the appeal is lost on me when I've got a limited space with zero ability to show any skill but to pull my trigger button.  I'm also not a huge fan of multiplayer slaughter-feats.  They're OK for a minute, but I can't imagine that being the only reason to buy the game as I hear it is for many CoD fanatics.  

Guess I'm old fashioned, but I like campaigns with objectives and the ability to play different styles depending on who has got the controller.  WOLFENSTEIN?  Perfect. Attempt stealth or go in guns-a-blazing. Doesn't matter.  You get a different experience from each and fans of either style are rewarded.

If you love the first, then you'll go crazy for NEW COLOSSUS.  It's fantastic.  Everything you loved about the reboot + more Blazkowicz mayhem.

Anybody here getting the X-Box One X? I haven't bought a game system since the X-Box 360 and PS3, as I felt that the minimal jump in quality to the PS4/XBone didn't justify the cost. But 4K support and reports of making 30fps 1080p games run at 60fps may just make me finally make the leap. But for $500 though....I feel like I should wait until I see how many games actually get modified to support it.

I ended up ordering the PS4 Pro instead....Walmart had a Black Friday sale for $350, so with it being $150 cheaper than the X-Box One X, I could not resist.

Just finished Super Mario Odyssey, certainly a contender for my favourite game of the year, along with Nier, Nioh and Persona 5.

Game of the Year for me goes to HORIZON: ZERO DAWN.  Hands down the best game I played this year re: all aspects: story, character and gameplay.  I'm playing the DLC right now and it's fantastic to revisit that world.

That's on the list, Matt.

As I stated previously, I buy one video game a month. For Xmas, I am thinking MIDDLE-EARTH: SHADOW OF WAR. I cannot believe how advanced games are now (compared to, say, 30 years ago). What will they be like in 10-15 years' time?

Now engrossed in the sprawling, beautiful alien worlds of Xenoblade 2 (third game in the series!)on  the Switch.

This returns to the heavier narrative aspects of the first game after Xenoblade X took an open world detour.

Just when you think ASSASSIN'S CREED has become played out, along comes ORIGINS.  While not totally original (what video game really is), it's a compelling return to what made fans like me enthralled in the first place.  They've gotten rid of some of the more time suck elements (chasing sheet music, anyone?) and made the parkour play style much more accessible as well as far less "sticky" and frustrating.  They've also incorporated some of the fun of BLACK FLAG by having you navigate boats through rather large lakes.  The story, both present with Abstergo and past with the Assassin, is as muddy as ever, but the missions and open world are far more compelling than anything since BLACK FLAG to this gamer.  Recommended.
