Not sure which I find more frustrating about this image: the character models, or the obvious absence of a script editor. Their hair is vexing.

lmfao, the hair is like cardboard; there's almost zero movement for any character's hair. That's also not the only example of Engrish (just my favorite); part towards the end says "It's gong to be alright"

If only. It's called like Jorun or something.

88. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy - PlayStation 4 - August 26

Image

Being a huge Uncharted fan and having played the five previous games in the series, I was equal parts excited and nervous - nervocited as Pinkie Pie would say - for this spin-off game because it would mark the first time Nathan Drake has not only not been an Uncharted game's protagonist but completely absent from the game entirely.  I saw this as a real make-or-break moment for Naughty Dog; if the game went well, it would prove that Uncharted can exist and thrive without the Nathan Drake character, but if it flopped, it would most likely be the nail in Uncharted's coffin.

Image

At the end of the day, Lost Legacy is less its own game and more standalone DLC for Uncharted 4.  As such, the game looks and plays more or less exactly like Uncharted 4.  Those who have played the series' most recent main installment, however, will know that such a statement is far from a criticism.  I played on PS4 Pro, and the game looks stunning running at 60 frame per second in HDR at a beautiful 2160p resolution (although, in fairness, that resolution is achieved through checkerboarding from a native 1440p).  Having played Uncharted 4 back when it first launched on the base PlayStation 4 hardware, the addition of HDR and a higher resolution with the Pro's added horsepower gave a noticeable visual improvement.  It's not like jumping from 480i to 1080p, mind you, but the world definitely has more detail and vibrancy with HDR and the added resolution.

Image

In Lost Legacy, you play not as Nathan Drake but as Chloe Frazer who is accompanied on her excursion by Nadine Ross.  Those of you who have played the Uncharted series will recognize those names; for those who haven't, they're badass women who can definitely beat the hell out of you blindfolded with both hands tied behind their backs.  I, personally, love seeing strong female leads who aren't just hypersexualized eye candy in games, and while some probably say that this just took series from being Tomb Raider with a dude to being an actual Tomb Raider rip-off, I loved seeing the change in protagonist.  It gave the game's story a different feel since it's told from a different character's perspective, and while there might be some validity to saying that it's now little more than a Tomb Raider clone, I think there are still enough aspects differing between the two to prevent that from being a real bane.

Image

Without spoiling anything, the story revolves around Chloe's quest to find the Tusk of Ganesh, a relic from an ancient Indian kingdom, and her struggle against an Indian insurgent warlord who seeks the tusk for his own gain.  The gameplay is your typical Uncharted fare - abundant platforming, some fairly straightforward puzzle solving, and dozens of dudes to massacre with a variety of weapons.  Nothing really breaks the Uncharted mold (aside from the female protagonist), but that's not a bad thing.  Naughty Dog has more or less perfect the formula over the various Uncharted releases, and as a result, this latest installment is an exceptionally well polished even if not entirely original product.

Image

Being a standalone expansion to Uncharted 4 rather than entirely new game built from the ground up, The Lost Legacy retailed for $40 vs the standard $60 and comes with full access to Uncharted 4's multiplayer much the way Bungie handled Halo 3 ODST.  While I very much doubt many people who picked this up haven't already played Uncharted 4, it is nice that the price matches the nature of the product and that the multiplayer was included.  That 33% lower price tag also makes it an easier decision for Uncharted enthusiasts like me who wanted to experience the new story but weren't thrilled about shelling out another $60 for an add-on even if it is a standalone.

Image

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is an extremely competent follow-up to the magnificent Uncharted 4 even if it plays it safe and follows in its predecessor's footsteps.  It's simply outstanding visually, and the writing and voice acting is every bit as top notch as one would expect from Naughty Dog.  It's clear that, despite being an expansion, a great deal of love and care was put into the game.  Truthfully, my only complaint is that the textures' rendering lags behind some of the models at times.  On a few occasions, I found myself standing on ground or holding an artifact that was a vaguely correctly colored blur with no texture until it popped in a few seconds later.  That's seriously pretty mcuh the only real flaw I encountered with the game.  If you're a fan of Uncharted, this one's a no-brainer.

Dynomite Deka 2. I almost put this under games I am playing but it's a game you can beat in a half hour. I always love this game. It's dumb but oh so fun. I wish we would get more games like it this day and age.

I am holding off on this one for a week or two specifically to play it on my Sony 4KTV and on the PS4 Pro I am picking up when Destiny 2 comes out in a week or so (I have one of those white D2 consoles preordered 8) ). Good to hear that it looks fantastic and plays great, though!

That is ABSOLUTELY the right call. If you haven't played Rise of the Tomb Raider yet, I'd definitely suggest that one, as well. RotTR and CoD:IW are the games that I think show off the PS4 Pro's 4K capabilities the best.

89. Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut - Xbox One - August 27

Image


If you've found yourself in need of a good, affordable fix for the mecha space combat shooter monkey on your back, I've got good news.  Strike Suit Zero: Director Cut is available on pretty much every platform (except Nintendo's poor, eternally neglected platforms) and, at only $20, is a downright bargain for the amount of pew-pew laser space explosions the game provides.  I had actually downloaded this game on my Xbox One who knows how long ago - presumably it was a free Games with Gold offer at some point - but had completely forgotten about it until flake mentioned how kick ass it is.  Hearing the praise from him, I knew I had to try it.  After all, this was the guy who sent me the original Gundam movie trilogy on Bluray; if he says a pew pew laser robot game is good, it's gotta be good.

Image

Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is an updated and more polished re-release of the older Strike Suit Zero, and while I never played the original release, from what I've read, the director's cut improves the original in almost every area with the most praise being directed towards the difficulty.  According to forum posts and Steam reviews I've read, the original release was crushingly difficult even on Easy whereas I found director's cut to be extremely fair.  There are a couple of missions that were tough, but at no point did the difficulty feel like bullshit tier hard.  If I had any gripe with the difficulty, it would be a few situations here and there with the checkpoint system; if you reach a checkpoint on a defend mission where the ship you're defending is low on health, you'll restart the checkpoint with it still like two shots from death, making it impossible to finish and completely defeating the purpose of a checkpoint.  Other than that, however, every aspect of the game felt pretty fair and well balanced to me.

Image

The story in Strike Suit Zero is that you're a pilot with the United Nations of Earth which finds itself embroiled in a war with a collection of colony worlds that have banded together to seek independence.  You discover that the colonial forces have developed some sort of doomsday weapon capable of completely disabling an entire armada and destroying whole planets.  Like, not the cities; it legit blows the planet apart.  So, naturally, that's not really a good thing for your enemy to have, especially given that the colonial fleet set a course straight for Earth.  No more Earth, no more war with United Nations of Earth.  The bulk of the game is played in the context of the plucky band of guerillas turned bizarrely lucky war machine trope, but it works for it.  The story isn't a breathtaking masterpiece or anything, but does keep the player engaged and interested.

Image

The control for the game is fantastic.  You can switch between a first and third person view, and you can set that perspective for your fighter cockpit, your mobile suit cockpit, or have it the same both.  I stuck with third person, but the option of going first person is nice.  You unlock a variety of ships each with different specialties.  Some are faster and more agile whereas others have more plasma weapon energy and better armor.  Each ship also has different weapon slots; some give you a little as one machine gun slot and two missile slots whereas others give you as much as two machine gun slots and four missile slots.  Picking the right ship and weapon loadout to match your playstyle and the mission at hand is the key to victory.

Image

Visually, the game looks great.  It doesn't set a new high for graphical fidelity or anything, but definitely looks good.  The laser effects are vibrant, the explosions have enough bloom to pop without looking like the inside of a nuclear reactor, and the ships look sleek and badass.  I've really only got two complaints about the visuals.  First, the ship wreckage that's left over when you destroy enemy capital ships looks pretty bad for the hardware it's running on.  It's not that the texture work is bad, but the ship just kind of breaks into like three or four chunks, leaving the debris looking like what you might expect to find in game from ten or fifteen years ago.  My other gripe is that there's some serious slowdown when you've got especially large ships exploding in close proximity to you.  The framerate drops from the standard 30 fps to around 10 fps for a few seconds.  Like the visuals, the game's audio isn't setting any new industry standards, but it's definitely very well done and pleasing to the ear.  The music has a grand, dignified feel without being so in-your-face that it detracts from the action of the game.  The voice acting, while nothing special, is competent enough and doesn't stand out like some of the cringe-worthy stuff we got in the 90s.

Image

Strike Suit Zero is broken into 13 missions, and the director's cut includes an addition five missions.  All in all, you're looking at probably five or six hours for a full playthrough, maybe a little plus or minus depending on the difficulty you choose.  You're scored at the end of each mission based on your kills and time taken with bronze, silver, gold, and platinum medals, so for those who like a challenge for going full completionist, this game has you covered in that regard.  The five expansion missions, titled Heroes of the Fleet, aren't particularly fascinating from a story perspective as it all takes place in a simulator, but the missions themselves are a lot of fun.  Those five missions are arguably as fun if not more so than the 13 missions in the base game.

Image

All in all, Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is a must-have for fans of space combat sims.  The price is totally reasonable, coming in at just a hair over $1 per level, and the variety of ships from which you can choose gives it a decent amount of replay value.  Whether you game on PlayStation, Xbox, or PC, this game is absolutely worth a purchase.  This is the space fighter for which I've been waiting for years.  I am so extremely glad that Colin reminded me that I have this game.
