So um...I was up all night playing episode 4. It, uh...fuck, man. Fuck.

(click to show/hide)

I only had the time to get the alternate reality prologue section done last night and I agree, FUCK...  This is probably the saddest game ever made.

Life is Strange episode 4 is a day early on Steam. I'm losing my shit with excitement, and cursing my crappy internet for downloading it so slowly.

I saw that and I'm super jealous.   It's still not on PS4.

I've been trying to play Five Nights at Freddy' s 4 but the game is now so reliant on sound cues it's apparently impossible to play without headphones and magically the headphone jacks on my PC stopped working.

Hey now... Goonies NEVER DIE! Or, at least if they do, they don't say so.  Cheesy

. Speaking of the Goonie the local theater is having a free showing this Wednesday to celebrate the 30th anniversary.  I'm stoked.

I played Outlast up until the first time I got trapped in a small dark cramped place with no weapons and an angry inmate who proceeded to kill me repeatedly.  I eventually got past it but never played it again.  Amnesia did it better IMO.

My intentions were good, it's not my fault Lisa can't hold her drinks.

Beat Alien Isolation this weekend.  It was nice to complete it, and the two DLC packs set on the Nostromo were fun (but short.)  The overall game itself?  It was worth playing once but I'll probably never touch it again.  The end third of the game got bogged down with increasingly difficult to justify plot twists that just annoyed me.  And the alien movement was never quite like in the movies, it spent most of its time walking on its hind legs like a person, out in the open in hallways and rooms.  I expected more jump from the ceiling ambushes I guess.   That being said the game had amazing production values and the art team did an excellent job making everything look futuristic according to the 1970s like the original film.  And someone in the dev team liked hiding origami unicorns around the station which I thought was cool.  (A reference to Blade Runner, also directed by Ridley Scott.). Verdict, play it if you nab it on special.

Dove into Arkham Knight after beating Isolation, or GTA: Gotham as I've been calling it.  I'm still getting used to the inclusion of the Batmobile.  Seems good so far though.

FUCKIN'-A, I KNOW. It's killing me. I think episode 4 is out in July, though, so the wait won't be that much longer. I really hope DONTNOD makes more games like this. Honestly, I've been enjoying Life is Strange far more than any of TellTale's recent offerings.

I'm played my first save as a pretty decent person, I think I want to get a save going where I am a complete and utter douche before the next chapter releases.

Also I'm really enjoying Alien Isolation.  I have a couple relatively minor gripes with it but the atmosphere and suspenseful tension are well done so far.

I have Darksiders 2 but I never got very far into it.  I need to finish the first one and I lost momentum on that when they introduced the portal gun.  It just felt so out of place with the rest of the game.

I spent most of my free time yesterday playing Alien: Isolation.  So far it's fantastic.  Also I played a bit of the Grim Fandango remaster.  I seriously forgot some of the puzzle solutions, it's been way to long since I played it.

PP:  Family drama.  Don't ask me what I want to do for Fathers Day if it's going to cause crying fits and arguments.  Just leave me the fuck alone with my XBox and a case of beer next time.

This was by far the least I have bought during the summer sale with a grand total of four games. 

Double Dragon: Neon is awesome.  The level of detail that went into making it feel like an 80's experience is amazing, especially the soundtrack.  A very solid side scroller beat em up.

I spent pretty much all day yesterday playing the first three chapters of "Life is Strange" which ended at a horrible cliffhanger.  I can't wait until the next chapter comes out to find out what happens next.

I learned a couple interesting facts messing about on the later levels of Breakdown.

1.  Lost heroes have a chance to reappear at any later level.  I lost Amelia Crasman (one of the best heroes I've come across so far) literally ten minutes after unlocking her and was so pissed off words can't even describe it.  A few levels later I found her in an enclave (along with Joel who I had also lost) and was able to recruit her again.  I knew you could find survivors you had left off the RV later on, the fact that dead ones can also respawn is pretty cool.

2.  If you need to bump up your community size fast and have 100 influence to spare you can have Lily search for other survivors which after a few minutes will put you into contact with a group you can immediately recruit without having to grind through a series of trust missions for their enclave.  This is especially useful if you want to move directly from the RV into a larger home site (like Snyders Trucking or MacReadys farm) right at the start of a new level.

The last Breakdown achievement I'm chasing is going to drive me insane.  The Rescuer achievement requires that you unlock every possible hero and the last one I need is "the Killer" which you need to do a mercy shot to unlock.  I've been lingering on level six forever trying to get this to unlock and I just cannot get it.  I haven't built a medical facility, I've long been out of medical supplies and I even dragged Doc out into the wilderness and let him get mauled so I have no medical personnel.  I have almost my whole community sick, with many hovering at "Gravely Ill" but this mission NEVER pops.  I've even been recruiting new enclaves, purposefully getting them mauled to near death and exposing them to bloater gas on their way back home.  I know I've said this before but I'll say it again, I hate luck based achievements.

I bought Fight Night Champion because it was on sale for like three bucks as an XBox digital download.  I liked Fight Night Round 3 (which was the last one I played) but I think I regret getting this one.  There must be something I'm fundamentally not getting because my career boxer accrued an abysmal record of 6 losses by KO and 1 win by KO before I retired him and his ever more degrading performance due to stacking crippling injuries.  Every match slowly tips towards the opponents favor because they regenerate 10 or more stamina between rounds while I regenerate 3 to 5.  Doesn't sound like a big deal until it reaches later rounds where they are still around 85~90% stamina while I'm typically down under 50%.  Soon I can barely stagger around the ring and am so drained that the inevitable knockdown is impossible to recover from.  Even Google fails to help because there is vastly different information floating around about strategys and tactics that is made worse by the fact the game apparently received numerous patches that drastically altered the gameplay.  I just want a fun boxing sim with a good career mode.  The career mode for this looks adequate, it's the fun that is distinctly lacking.

Apparently I got invited to a closed Alpha for a new FPS team shooter called Burstfire.  The Alpha is only open for a few days (from the 16th to the 21st of this month) so I will have very little time to actually play it.  But the email says to feel free to give the code to friends so here it is for whoever is interested.


EDIT: Forgot a link to the installer.  Link

And now that I pasted the link I see why I got invited to the Alpha.  It's by the devs who made WarZ.

I have a PS4, not sure if I'll be getting an XBone.  The graphics for YOSE look good, glad to hear they did add some new features.  I know they added some new heroes to Breakdown from reading the wiki.  If they release YOSE on Steam I might pick it up.

Some general tips on base building and community management to help you get through breakdown.

1.  Keep your active community small, this cuts down on your daily resource consumption, I personally wouldn't go over 12. 

2.  Prioritize your base facilities based on your playstyle.  My personal preference on the later levels is the Savini residence because you move right into it from the RV assuming you carried over 30 building materials.  It has a bunkroom, watchtower, food prep area and library built in and has room for three more.  I go with the fully upgraded medical area, machine shop (to keep cars fully repaired, the three parking spaces allow you a good rotation between vehicles) and a full dojo because the stamina boosts are EXTREMELY helpful for the almost constant combat you'll be in.  This build is really best suited to a short stay in the level though since you won't be generating your own food.  If you plan on staying long term hold out for Snyders or the Fairgrounds where you have the room to also build a garden.  Or you can ditch the dojo and go with a greenhouse and stick at Savini's, it's personal preference for me to have the extra stamina.

3.  Build all your outposts.  Each one boosts the chances of a community member who goes missing to end up safe by 15%.  Even at Savini's where you are capped at only 6 outposts that means a 90% chance they'll make it back which isn't shabby.

4.  Which leads into... if you get busy feel free to blow off missions for strangers but always make the time for your community members mission request.  Failing to help them when asked can lead to them getting lost for long periods of time, possibly forever.  Yes, that includes the gear they are carrying.  You don't want that.  I was so focused on trying to unlock Mickey Wilkerson I blew off a ton of missions and ended up having Doc and Joel the Biker get lost.  Doc got recovered shortly afterward, I’m hoping Joel will turn up again, he’s my mechanic…
