Mega Man X2 Casual Longplay

 

Four years after recording Mega Man X1, I finally get to Mega Man X2. I like this game a lot, as it’s just a bit more than a standard Mega Man sequel clone. It makes some positive changed without straying to far from what made the original a classic, and for that it deserves to be remembered in its own right. I’ll let the video explain the rest. Enjoy!


This Is Not A Review: Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC

Brad Gallaway recently rolled out a new column titled This Is Not A Review. In it he discusses general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game he’s playing, but not reviewing. It’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z. I’m hijacking his column to offer my impressions on Fallout 4‘s latest DLC — Vault-Tec Workshop, which is developed and published by Bethesda for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

HIGH A huge number of modes, both single-player and online.

LOW The Extreme difficulty caters only to die-hard motocross game fans… all two of them.

WTF Overly exaggerated animations kill any sense of realism.

This Is Not A Review: Type:Rider

Life is busy, free time is short, and there are a hell of a lot of games coming out… More than any person could ever play, let alone finish. I do my best to keep up with the neverending flood, but there’s only so much one man can do. In an effort to be more nimble with my coverage, I’ve decided to roll out This Is Not A Review.

Like the title says, this is not a review. The content of this column will be general impressions, ideas, thoughts, and any random thing that pops into my head after spending time with the non-review game in question.

The subject of this installment? Type:Rider from BulkyPix. (PC, PS4, Vita, iOS)

Overwatch01

Blizzard has made another round of changes to their smash team-based shooter Overwatch as of July 22nd. I love this game and I only play it on PS4, so let’s go over some of the new tweaks specific to the platform, shall we? By the way, I won’t be discussing every change in this latest patch, so for those who are curious about the entire list of tweaks, you can see the official PS4 patch notes here.
