The Evil Within: The Assignment Review

theassignment_1920x1080_01

In The Assignment, the first part of a series of three add-ons for The Evil Within, we learn the motives and partial true identity of Juli Kidman, the female partner of Sebastian Castellanos, while gaining insight into the background of Ruvik, why Leslie is so important to him and the mysterious organization Kidman works for called Mobius.

The Assignment relies heavily upon stealth in that there is no other option for survival or progression. Either you ninja or you die. Kidman is equipped with only a flashlight, the odd glass bottle she collects to use as a distraction and the rare axe located in areas of elevated danger that can only be utilized for stealth kills and are destroyed after a single use. Her abilities are crouching and calling out to enemies to get them to move to more desirable locations. There is no upgrade system, but as she carries no weapons that isn’t an issue. The equip menu however, remains accessible. The result of Kidman’s many limitations is a feeling of heightened vulnerability and frantic desperation. I often found myself flat out making a run for it to evade enemies that were moments away from discovering Juli’s presence and just hoping her heel clad feet would be fast enough to whisk her away. If only she were so lucky.

Assignment

Playing Hide-n-seek with the enemy.

Dubbed Light Lady, a new enemy featuring the bottom half of a hot nurse, the torso of a demonic venus flytrap and a light beacon for a head, stalks around at an off balanced jog in a torn and blood stained lab coat calling to Leslie in varying tones of deprived creeper. She makes appearances in several areas and is responsible for another new enemy. By shining her light on the haunted playing dead in the area, she is able to turn them into Cadavers. These creatures are bent over backwards with elongated rib cages protruding from their torsos and decked in explosive boils that glow red when they are alarmed.

Accompanying these new foes are some new areas and old ones experienced in new ways. For example, the headquarters for Mobius and finding out that Juli is actually from a village previously explored by Sebastian. Throughout the stages I kept getting the feeling that the reason I couldn’t find any weapons was because Sebastian was always a step ahead and snatching up all the goods. A lot of questions were answered in terms of what was happening every time they were separated and why she made certain choices that seemed cold beforehand. Also, like her partner, Juli had a safe haven of sorts. While Sebastian had an entire mental ward, Juli’s came in the form of a black house cat with a glowing red ribbon tied in a bow around its neck and a comfy couch.

Final Verdict: I enjoyed playing The Assignment for the advancements and insight it offered on the story. However, the stealth made it grueling and sometimes it just wasn’t fun. It became a matter of waiting, because I had to. With no methods of defense, because apparently Juli never had combat training, all caution was taken to not engage the enemy. Towards the end, Kidman seems to be coming to her senses and rebelling as she gains more knowledge about the type of people she works for. Hopefully, this hints at her rising out of submission to Mobius. Looking forward to some ass-kicking in the second installment, The Consequence.

Editor’s Note*: Juli’s adventure will take you around 4-5 hours to complete depending on your skill level.

Boxman

As The Evil Within’s October release creeps ever closer, more and more info continues to surface. Now Tango Gameworks has revealed the Completionist Guide; detailing the achievements/trophies players will or can unlock while playing the game.

In order order to actually unlock the guide which is available of the game’s official website, players must first solve a little puzzle. It is fairly easy and just requires you to match the pictures with the descriptions. If that is something you still don’t want to get involved, in you can just view the list below as I’ve saved you the trouble. You’re welcome.

As for the list, everything seems pretty doable. Not happy with the “The Quick and the Dead” achievement/trophy as it requires the player to complete the game in under 5 hours.

Here’s 60 Minutes of The Evil Within PS4 Gameplay

PeteTEW2

Bethesda Softworks has released a 60 minute gameplay video for The Evil Within featuring their leading public relations executive Pete Hines behind the controller.

Hines plays through the ninth chapter in the game called “The Cruelest Intentions” on Sony’s PlayStation 4. This is the same demo lucky fans got to play at last week’s Gamescom 2014. Early on he refers to the title as a “dynamic game”, so it is not “the same on any given playthrough.”

You can check out the footage below thought do not expect Hines to showcase any expert level skills. He jokes at one point saying:

“This is like a tutorial video on how not to play The Evil Within.”

Yes, yes it is.

Why I’m Excited For The Evil Within

The-Evil-Within

The Evil Within or Saikobureiku (Psychobreak) as it is known in Japan, is an upcoming game from developers at Tango Gameworks and publishers at Bethesda Softworks. Also attached to this title is designer Shinji Mikami of the Resident Evil franchise. With a release date of October 21, 2014 for North American gamers, this title drops right in time for the season of horror.

As a huge fan of the survival horror theme, I am truly excited to immerse in this game. From trailers daring you to be brave enough and gameplay of high intensity, The Evil Within has definitely made my list. As expected from the genre, it is ripe with bloody and tortured gore, but even more captivating is the psychological aspect. Like most survival horror games, jump scares play a large part in the fear effect. More potent however, is the use of tension built up over many stress filled encounters with sometimes invulnerable enemies where your only chance of survival is escape.

The-Evil-Within-4

The protagonist, Sebastian Castellanos is a detective who sets out with fellow officers, to investigate a mass murder and that’s where all hell breaks loose. He witnesses the butchering of his colleagues, but is spared and knocked unconscious. When he wakes, the world as he knows it is no more. Tortured creatures dubbed “The Haunted” and other beings lurk around every corner. Death is a constant threat and whether it’s an imposed illusion or a legitimate break in psyche, Sebastian does not know what is real anymore. He’s trapped in a twisted reality where nothing is safe and even healing can be detrimental.

All in all I am really hyped up to play this game. It’s exciting and fully committed to the horror aspect of the genre. I look forward to the paranoid, jumpy, “don’t you dare leave me alone in this house” side effects. The Evil Within, ladies and gentlemen.

Elder Scrolls Online Review

Elder Scrolls Online Review RealGamerNewz

Alright let me start off by saying this review is for leveling through 1-50. The game is not even half way over for me as I explore Veteran Ranks and even with that said I have over 5 days of time played. I can easily say that there is no other MMO like TESO that has brought me this much binge playing thus far. I have played few games in between and have craved the game when I am not on it. My sleep schedule has taken a toll as hours fly by and I am never aware of the time. The Elder Scrolls Online is almost exactly how I want it to be. It has the exploration I seek, the thrilling PvP I crave, and a crafting system that actually takes time. I was not very excited for this game and bought it last minute during a spur of the moment type of deal. I am very happy with what I have gotten to play and what I have experienced. While there are some issues I only encounter them only so often and understand they are working them out. I am an avid MMOer and have played many games on launch so bugs, glitches, bot, and just general annoyances of launches are nothing new to me and barely phase me, but if they do to you then you should wait for a month or two, but even then this game is just plain out fun.

Exploration is a huge thing in the Elder Scrolls series and it holds up well in the MMO adaption of the game. I sheltered myself from the game before it came out and was on the fence the week before it launched. While playing you notice a couple of things. The exploration is not hindered like many MMOs. It is on a smaller scale than the normal Elder Scrolls games, but it is great compared to most recent MMOs. The sites are beautiful, the zones are interesting, and the shards add some mystery to the game. You can quest and explore while doing so, finding public dungeons, open dungeons, mundus stones, world bosses, raw materials, treasure chests, and just random sites. The zones are large and offer something different than the previous zone. While playing I got a very nostalgic feeling of exploration and curiosity. You can find a good amount of stuff form exploring and it really brings an element that has not been seen in MMOs for some time.

Screenshot_20140410_010104Screenshot_20140410_010104Screenshot_20140410_010104 copy

Now, lets go forward to PvP. Which is pretty amazing if you can find a group, guild, or get in to the right campaign. There are several campaigns for the PvP and depending on which you pick you could be winning, tied, or getting crushed. The PvP zone Cryodiil itself is giant with plenty of things to do. You can hunt down the Skyshards, attempt to take keeps, take resources, or hunt down players. No matter what you do though the time speeds by. During actually sieges the fine details are what really matter. The walls show damage, battering rams actually reveal cracks in the doors so that you can see other players, and it is overall an actual challenge for players. You have to follow the numbers and you have to be organized. PvP is not something you can just do and while that may dissatisfy some loners it is not meant for you. You can’t take a keep by yourself and you can’t defend one alone either. There isn’t much you can do alone except get ran over. The PvP also has some PvE flair as you can do quests and to take keeps as well as resources you have to kill the guarding NPCs. I have not fought an Emperor, but seeing videos they look like the main attraction in a raid, requiring large amounts of people to focus him.

Screenshot_20140422_155137 copy

The combat can be very exciting, but at times can be very buggy as well. In some instances the combat can bug out and basically kill you, but when this doesn’t happen the combat is fluid, fun, and very much alike to previous Elder Scroll games. It is a different pace from most MMOs and makes auto targeting a thing of the past. While some other MMOs have done this it hasn’t really picked up in the mainstream. You can have 5 abilities, an ult, and at level 15 you unlock a second set that you can switch to even in combat. While the combat isn’t anything revolutionizing to me it is still fun and a great addition to the game itself. The spot where the combat shines is synergy, synergy is an effect that occurs with several spells and requires your group to activate them. Spells like Choking Talons which hold enemies in to place have a synergy ability that deal damage when it notifies members of your group to press ‘x’. The synergy feature adds in a whole new level of combat especially for dungeons. The combat can have its ups and downs, but this is really one of the first MMOs where I have grinded (By choice) and haven’t been insanely bored. As with groups of 3 or more the game gets really hard and forces you to focus. You can’t really expect to run in to large groups and easily come out alive.

Screenshot_20140413_120821 copy

The crafting system in the game so far is fantastic. You have to put time and effort in to the actual system. The system makes you find Motifs in order to actually craft certain styles. The motifs can be found in many places and aren’t overall very hard to find, but you need them to craft different styles. The styles include all the races as well as Primal, Barbaric, Ancient Elves, and Daedric. Moving forward you have to research traits on your items. The traits give your item a great bonus such as stronger enchantments, stronger armor, spell resistance, etc etc. After you research a trait the time for the next trait doubles and overall it takes 60 days for a player to research every trait for just one item. If you level up your crafting eventually you can research 3 traits at a time. The traits are also only found on existing items that you have to use to research them and are destroyed in the process. In order to get the best gear possible you would have to research all 8 traits on every piece of armor you wanted which can take up to 60 days for a single piece. While searching for some items can feel tedious it is all worth it in the long run.

Screenshot_20140415_151504 copy

Overall The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO worth playing. It has beautiful scenery, beautiful graphics, and a huge map that people will surely enjoy. Exploration is rewarded in a great way and leveling overall is fun. The combat is fluid, the PvE content is difficult, the PvP can be epic, and the game is beautiful. Overall this game is an Elder Scrolls game, but online. While there are some major complaints such as bugs, bots, exploits, and glitches those are not a definite part of the game and I will not be reviewing them. I am reviewing the game itself and what is meant to happen. There is no point in reviewing a game based on temporary set backs in which the developers are tirelessly working out. This game is worth playing and any Elder Scrolls fan should definitely check it out. It is a huge game with a huge future that can only be halted by its developers. I am addicted to this game and have not been able to pull myself away from it too often. The game truly feels like an Elder Scrolls game and is something I’ve been wanting for some time. If you can ignore the bugs of an MMO at launch then it is very easy for me to recommend this game to you. Really for me the only thing holding down Elder Scrolls Online is Zenimax. They have to hear customers and respond in a timely manner. The future for me looks very bright as they already have their first content patch on the way and have been very interactive with the community.
