I got bored and made 3 dumb T-Shirt designs, this one's in honor of Huber. Should have put a little more effort in this, but oh well, lol. I'm not sure whether the words in all caps would look good, so I took the safer choice.
It's not really a game, but I just bought the Korg Gadget for the Switch. I've been trying out the music making stuff in Dreams for a while (which is super awesome), and made some okay stuff with it. Most importantly, it gives me enough confidence to keep making more music, so I figure this is the easiest upgrade I can get (thanks to the Allies for introducing me to this with that wonderful group stream). I haven't really understood all the technical stuff yet, so I have a long way to go with this. I did mess around for a bit and had fun with it, you can make some simple beats with this easily.
More details about the AWE expansion:
"Over the years, we have included Easter eggs in our games that related some of Remedy’s games to each other, as you have seen if you played Control… but what if they were not all just Easter eggs? What if there’s actually been a plan in place for over a decade on how some of our games are connected – a Remedy Connected Universe, if you will – and payoff for certain things is… down the line?
Also, a world premiere of the expansion is coming soon.
I've been waiting for them to show some gameplay for this before making a thread, and now I finally get that chance. This is from Giant Squid, the developers of ABZU, which I enjoyed quite a bit.
Become the Hunter, a master of archery who travels to a mystical island to dispel a curse of darkness that grips the world. Forge a connection with your eagle companion as you hunt corrupted spirits, but be careful not to become the hunted yourself. Explore misty forests full of secrets, solve puzzles in ancient ruins, and test your skill in epic battles. The bond with your eagle and the fate of the world hang in the balance.
So the gameplay got me excited, I really like the sense of speed and fluidity of the whole game, particularly with how the character moves around. I'm so ashamed that "no maps" are a selling point for me at this point, but it's definitely the right choice for me. Brandon said it best: "Is this what it feels like to be Huber?" Everything I seen about this game just clicks for me.
Coming Holiday 2020.
Aside from the super flat Godfall showcase that ended the whole thing (and that Auto Chess game), I think this was a pretty neat show. I pretty much enjoyed almost everything else that was shown, and there's some really good stuff there. I'm so hyped for Crash 4, The Pathless, and Spelunky 2! There's a pretty good variety too, I'm surprised that stuff like Anno Mutationem and Genshin Impact got there. I really like that they didn't bother to do long transitions for most of them, which helped made the pacing better. Also, that Hitman VR thing is so hype!! I never wanted PSVR more than now, that is an amazing feature.
Just got my first win after a pretty clean Fall Mountain session! This is the beginning of my addiction, lol. Watching the Allies' group stream definitely helped me, I haven't played much (I think I got in like 11 episodes so far, only made to the finals in 3 of them) so I mostly learned about the later challenges from the group stream. Fall Mountain is a really good final game, btw.
Still not having the best connection/matchmaking experience, but I got a couple more matches. The team challenges are the absolute worst, lol. It always felt like it's completely dependent on luck for most of them (expect maybe the egg basket one), the best I can do is just play the objective and pray everyone else on my team got it right. I also would love to see improvements in the control feedback. Jumping around and diving feels okay, but grabbing things just feels very slippery and sloppy. I wish crossplay is available so I can play it with my friends, this seems like the best chance I got to get them to play a non-F2P game with me.
Also, the group stream the Allies just did earlier is so much fun to watch, Jones is killing it!
I only got in one session so far. I guess the servers are too overwhelmed right now, or maybe it's because I'm playing this super early in the morning... nah, it's probably the former. The menu music is a certified banger though. I got See Saw (absolute chaos), Block Party (it's quite nerve-wrecking with how this game controls), and the tail chasing one (got one dude who's held the tail for almost 2 minutes straight, too pro).
I'm stoked for Fall Guys as well, no excuse for me to miss out especially since it's free on PS Plus (unless PSN Asia doesn't get that one). I'm also curious about Windbound and Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time. It will be mostly a backlog month for me though. Hopefully Skater XL shows up on my region's PSN store sometime soon.
