Microsoft buys Bethesda

 

 

Woke up this morning to some surprise wedding news “Xbox Buys Bethesda.” So it looks like there is about to be a really big wedding with Microsoft (Xbox) picking up ZeniMax (Parent company of Bethesda) and now Bethesda is joining the Xbox family. The huge dowry is to the tune of $7.5 Billion in cash, all joking aside that’s a whole lotta money.

Just in case you’re not aware or as I said in my video “Been under a rock,” Bethesda is responsible for some big games such as:

  • Dishonored
  • Wolfenstein
  • The Elder Scrolls
  • Fallout
  • The Evil Within
  • Prey
  • Starfield

And are currently working on a new Elder Scrolls game and other projects like Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo.

Does this mean that all Bethesda games are going to be on the Xbox Gamepass?
Well here are some details from the PR of Microsoft:

  • Microsoft is paying $7.5 Billion in cash for Zenimax Media/Bethesda.
  • Gamepass has reached 15 million subscribers and is growing.
  • Microsoft has now 23 studios.
  • Bethesda’s future games will be on Gamepass on Launch Day.

But what about the exclusivity to PS5 titles that Bethesda studios have made, will they be honored by the new deal? Well according to Xbox Big Wig Phil Spencer (Who ain’t playing around with this big buy) said, “Xbox plans to honor PS5 exclusivity commitment for Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo. Future games will be on Xbox, PC, and “other consoles on a case by case basis.”

What do you think? Are you excited about this or are you thinking this will be DOOM for the games such as Doom and the other titles?

Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter.

The Ultimate Spartan| Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Let’s Play and Impressions

The Ultimate Spartan| Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Let’s Play and Impressions

Paradoxically for a game set in ancient Greece, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is anything but Spartan. This epic-scale action-roleplaying game shines as a grand adventure through a stunning and stunning open world on a scale we’ve seldom seen. With so couple of compromises between quantity and quality, Odyssey vaults over its predecessors to end up being the most remarkable game in the history of the series.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey starts more than 2,400 years back at the onset of the Peloponnesian war: a decades-long struggle between Athens and Sparta for dominion over the ancient Greek world. It’s a fitting period to explore that’s rife with political and social intrigue, full-scale warfare on land and sea, and a concrete air of myth and legend. And after astonishing 60-plus hours of galloping, cruising, and slicing through that historical-fiction sandbox, it’s simple to see why it deserved battling so hard over.

Odyssey’s world is the most significant and most vibrantly vibrant of the series. These gorgeous scenes take off into life thanks to a lighting system that still triggers me to stop and snap an image even all these hours later on.

Of course, as with virtually all grand-scale video game worlds, flaws prowl just under the surface area. They vary from small immersion-breaking hiccups like draw distance that never seems to be rather far adequate to catch the view, textures that show up minutes too late, or somewhat off-sync audio, to the more severe: getting terminally stuck on geometry, discovering an unlootable lootable product, or having your tamed monster ended up being untamed when you die and refill– which may very well trigger you to pass away and reload again if you happen to have had a tamed bear. Bugs like these were bothersome, sure, however not rather regular adequate to sour me on exploring what has actually turned into one of my favorite open-world maps ever.

History/ Herstory
For the first time in an Assassin’s Creed video game, we get a choice of whether to play exclusively as a woman or a man: brother or sisters Alexios and Kassandra. Real, as far as the story’s worried they’re effectively the very same character, however, even though they’re superficial there are some meaningful differences. Namely, Kassandra’s voice performing is typically more consistently well done than that of her sibling.
These protagonists are easily the most flexible characters in any Assassin’s Creed video game to date.

For that matter, accents and voice delivery throughout Odyssey are struck or miss out on, typically falling somewhere between good and outright scenery-chewing, particularly when it comes to no-name NPCs who sound like somebody who had actually viewed My Huge Fat Greek Wedding once prior to being asked to do an impersonation. However the facial animation of the marquee characters is outstanding, and you can notice the subtle disgust or confusion on the face of Alexios or Kassandra without them having to state a word.

When it comes to their characters, these lead characters are easily the most versatile characters in any Assassin’s Creed video game to date. As a mercenary, my Kassandra was totally free to be whoever I chose her to be. A merc with a conscious, a one-track-mind horn canine, or a callous murdering psychopath– there are no incorrect answers, however there were certainly effects to the decisions I picked.

If I wanted to be was someone who’s frequently too lazy or self-assured to conceal their murderous methods, which put me in dispute with Odyssey’s new prestige system. It’s a simple, sensible method: the more criminal activities you devote, the most likely it is that someone on the planet puts a bounty on your head, and then a ruthless cadre of procedurally called mercenaries begin to hunt and track you down.

While I initially discovered the mercs who were sicced on me to be little more than loot pinatas, as I leveled up the generic names and descriptors– like Ilona the Agile (who was admittedly quite nimble up until I sunk her vessel and she drowned in the Aegean)– started to get more threatening and bombastic. I eventually simply started running away when she had tracked me down, prior to finally ending her reign of fearsome 10 levels later.

The mercenaries sent to eliminate me eventually had my respect.

With a high enough bounty, this unlimited procession of relentless pursuers started to show up in force to make complex matters while I remained in the middle of sieging a fort– and prior to I might end up fighting one another would sign up with, eager to hunt my head for a coin. Then another, then another, and quickly I had to pick between battling 5 headhunters while I tried to finish my objective in a protected fort, or turn tail and run. They eventually earned my respect, and I appreciate the chaotic X-factor they bring to Odyssey. Rising through their ranks to acquire the attention of their famous warriors is an enjoyable meta-game in and of itself.

The nation battle system permits you to assist the war effort for either Sparta or Athens in each region. By destroying materials, pillaging war chests, or deposing a national leader, you’ll trigger a conquest fight. While these big melees or marine fights are thoroughly exceptional combat situations and reward you with some excellent loot, they mean disappointingly little to the story. No matter whether you’re attacking or safeguarding, which side you join, or who ultimately wins, the war machine keeps turning. Ultimately, I got to a point where I was able to damage a region and set off a conquest fight rather rapidly, that made these mini-wars effectively farmable. That draws a few of the magnificence out of them, however seeing a hundred soldiers, captains, and mercenaries secured battle is constantly a sight to see.

Plying Your Trade

Odyssey continues what Origins started last year, moving the battle to a free-flowing dance of light and heavy attacks. The weapons are swords, daggers, axes, maces, spears, and staves, all of which behave just in a different way enough for significant nuance. In the heat of battle, it’s an easy-to-grasp system of slashes and abilities, and I’m still selecting battles just for the joy of it– especially versus improbable odds, like the Greek legends of old.
There’s a staggering quantity of devices to discover, update, and engrave with effective advantages. Odyssey smartly offers you the opportunity to update an old piece of gear to your level for a large cost, depending upon its rarity. Thanks to that system, I didn’t need to say goodbye to my preferred sword and dagger that I used throughout much of the experience– however that accessory cost me a little fortune in resources to keep them approximately date every few levels. Even if I didn’t constantly have the crafting materials or currency required to upgrade my old trustworthy Spartan War Hero helmet to my current level, a continuous stream of new practical equipment continued to put in, giving me alternatives until I refilled my coffers.

The genuine progression comes from Odyssey’s three distinct skill trees: Warrior (melee), Hunter (archery), and Assassin (stabby stab). More than any other Assassin’s Creed previously, I felt I could tailor my mercenary to my play style without making any real sacrifices.

The Sparta Kick was the single most devastating and simply plain enjoyable weapon.

Even when exploring, every skill I picked felt rewarding. Removing guards from the hands of well-defended opponents, providing brutally overpowered attacks, triggering life-saving heals, and a multitude of craftable unique arrows made me feel like I had the utility to deal with a small army. Thanks to the homicidal power of gravity, I discovered the Sparta Kick (a winking recognition to Leonidas’ punting a foe off a cliff to his death in the movie 300) to be the single most disastrous and simply plain fun weapon in my toolbox for almost half my playthrough.

Naval warfare is the best it’s ever been in Assassin’s Creed.

The other pillar of the fight is naval warfare, which is the best it’s ever been in Assassin’s Creed. It’s that same familiar system of ramming, raining arrows, and javelins on opposing vessels– both basic and of the fiery variety– and navigating to ward off retaliation. This time around, your ship, the Adrestia, has much more excellent upgradeable options to buff out arrow damage, ramming damage, or sturdiness at the expense of a load of collectible resources. While those costs continue to rise, finally collecting enough to sink a point into a brand-new upgrade instills a sense of genuine achievement. By the time I had finished the main story, I was wiping out mercenary vessels numerous levels greater than me due to the fact that of the upgrades I picked, and I felt like I might manage just about anything the Aegean needed to throw at me.
But Odyssey’s thoughtful systems for upgrading mean even when you’re on land, the sea is ever-present, since you can constantly be pursuing upgrading your ship. Nearly every enemy you come across, from foot soldiers to Spartan generals, can be subdued and hired to join your ship as a lieutenant in such a way that’s reminiscent of Shadow of War’s army-building Bane system. It’s a smart sub-layer of optimization that not just includes modification, however, it kept me thinking about the Adrestia even while I was hundreds of miles inland. And of course, gliding across the glassy Aegean and charging headlong into an armada of pirates, Spartans, Athenians, and even helpless merchant vessels is something I enjoy even after a lot of time controlling Greece’s waters.

Family Matters
Its uncomplicated household drama is unrestricted by the worn-out Assassins versus Templars daytime soap.

While side objectives and combat are abundant and fun, eventually you’ve got to move Odyssey’s primary story forward. Its simple household drama is unrestricted by the tired Assassins versus Templar’s soap opera, which is, fortunately, all however entirely kicked to the curb this time.
At the same time, Odyssey’s primary story is padded with a mission after mission of worthless errands that make getting to those strong character minutes a painstaking gauntlet of splintered jobs. Frequently the benefit of a significant character expose was dulled due to the fact that I had to spend 6 hours chasing my tail through half the Greek world to reach it. Which is an embarrassment, because those moments actually strengthen your mercenary character as a person, rather than a way to an end.

Even after finishing the main story, there’s still so much left to discover that I’m almost as overwhelmed with where to go and what to do next as I was when I started. The 3 main story pillars weave in and out of one another, however for a big piece of the experience you have access to missions from each, so there’s both a variety to pick from and meaningful things delegated finish when you end up the main character’s household story. Whether I’m searching down the remnants of the sinister Cult of Kosmos, tracking down relics that push the totally shallow present-day story forward, battling mythological monsters, or hunting the fantastic monsters of Greek legend, there’s a staggering quantity of material delegated discover.

Decision
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is a resounding accomplishment in world-building, environment, and engaging gameplay with occasional problems throughout. Its incredible entertainment of ancient Greece is something I’ll wish to return to long after I’ve finished its main story, and its exceptional systems mesh together in a manner that’s difficult to beat. While there are definite rough edges, Odyssey sets a brand-new bar for Assassin’s Creed video games and holds its own in the eternal debate over the very best open-world roleplaying games ever.

Ironically for a game set in ancient Greece, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is anything however Spartan. For the very first time in an Assassin’s Creed game, we get a choice of whether to play exclusively as a lady or a male: brother or sisters Alexios and Kassandra. These protagonists are quickly the most flexible characters in any Assassin’s Creed game to date when it comes to their personalities. Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines is a video game that will just appeal to those who are already enthralled with the Assassin’s Creed universe. While there are certainly rough edges, Odyssey sets a brand-new bar for Assassin’s Creed video games and holds its own in the everlasting debate over the finest open-world roleplaying games ever.

So Freaking Terrifying|Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo and Impressions

 

So Freaking Terrifying|Resident Evil 3 Remake Demo and Impressions- Hello Jill and Nemesis, my old friends

One of gaming’s thirstiest of stalkers returns!

 

So after 2015’s amazing Resident Evil 2 Remake, hopeful rumors began to circulate that Capcom would have one for Resident Evil 3. It ended up those rumors held true and similar to the Resident Evil 2 remake, a demo dropped for the third game in the age-old survival-horror franchise. This was my favorite Resident Evil game so I was stoked to try out the demo and see what changed from the original game.

I had a little trouble at first downloading the demo on Steam, I believe things crashed or something, but later on, I was able to see Mr. Ugly large on my computer monitor.

Mr. Ugly

Entering the demo I was able to see Jill Valentine trying to escape Raccoon City throughout the occasions that led to the city’s demise. The story occurs simultaneously with that of Resident Evil 2’s, so new players are not required to play the previous video game to understand whatever the hell is going on in this remake.

 

The demo takes place during the early hours of the game, as Jill tries to help Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service representative Carlos Oliveria (His hair is soooo epic!) to bring back power to a subway train full of civilians. It’s a short slice of gameplay, and though I died a lot I did finally beat the game later on offline to see Mr. Ugly in all his ugly glory. The demo isn’t simple or easy it’s just a bit different than I remember and the first I’ve tried on the PC.

No matter the length of time it takes you to clear the Resident Evil 3 demo the game does look very beautiful, The stuttering at the beginning of my live playthrough was due to there being an update for my video card that I hadn’t noticed till afterward.

I didn’t take part in the Resident Evil 2 Remake as of yet or in their demo but I did enjoy the stacking of herbs and ammo and love the new UI. Also, I really love Jill’s evade and after getting the hang of it can utilize to backstep from the zombies while shooting, or juke them as they lunge at her from hidden corners. Even after getting a better handle on the dodge it doesn’t detract from the stress, and with the increase in zombies on screen it saved my ass lots of the time, especially since I’m a piss poor shot and run out of bullets a lot. Hehe.

Anyone that has played the original Resident Evil 3 knows who the real pain in the ass is here and he sure as hell appears in the demo. Nemesis is a relentless force of pure malice and rage that makes Mr. X from Resident Evil 2 look like a toddler learning to walk in comparison.

To put it candidly: Nemesis is an absolute terror, and if you hated Mr. X in Resident Evil 2 you will HATE Nemesis. Even I as a returning fan to the franchise have to review what I once understood about the S.T.A.R.S. obsessed murder machine, due to the fact that this brand new Nemesis is definitely relentless. Mercifully, he doesn’t appear till later on in the demo, once he does the entire state of mind shifts from care to large scale panic.

I really enjoyed my time with the demo, all stated. I’m not particularly thrilled by the prospect of having the world’s most dangerous stalker searching my ass for ten-plus hours, however that becomes part of the appeal. Anybody can endure a zombie apocalypse nowadays, so the included difficulty supplied by Nemesis is a welcome, albeit stressful one. The novelty has subsided a little due to Resident Evil 3 hewing carefully to the design philosophy that drove last year’s Resident Evil 2 Remake.

I do admit I might use the aim assist in the full game until I become more accustomed to mouse and keyboard a bit more shooting the weapons.

 

Resident Evil 3 will launch on April 3, 2020, on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. The Demo is presently on all 3 platforms.
