Mass Effect Andromeda – First Impressions

mass-effect

Yesterday was my first big delve into Mass Effect Andromeda. For awhile I was on the sideline for this game, I knew I was going to get it, but ever since it’s announcement the premise had me put off. It just seemed so different from everything we had seen in the first 3 games, and Mass Effect 2 is my favorite game of all time. So what do I think so far? Honestly, I think it’s pretty good.

The technical issues aside, which really are not a big deal, to me at least, the game is great so far. It has this nice blend of old Mass Effect, but also feels like something new, fresh, and the story and characters have surprisingly drawn me in. The designs of the new ships, aliens, and worlds are amazing and fit alongside the original designs. Whilst the aliens feel more alien in this, but still fit.

The gameplay is fast and fluid, despite the jumping and climbing feeling a little weighted and wonky. The nomad is fun to drive, a super improved mako. Most of the sidequest I have liked, expect for the typical collectathons that these types of games send you on. I am excited to get back to Andromeda soon, stayed tuned for my review that’ll be upcoming.

RealGamerNewz H1Z1 Steam Early Access Impressions

H1Z1 RealGamerNewz Preview Impressions Steam Early Access PC Gaming SOE Sony

[Image Credit: F2P]

Hello RGN Readers, my name is John Clark and I’m part of the RealGamerNewz Community. I’ve been playing H1Z1 for the few weeks now that it’s been available on Steam Early Access and in my opinion if you’re into the survival horror meets action genre of video games then this is the game for you. Here are my thoughts and impressions of the game thus far at the timing of this post.

I must say, H1Z1 is phenomenally well put together. There are two types of gameplay I see on it that are on the forefront but this is only minimalist compared to what others can do with a little time and creative ingenuity. Of course, creation is limited to what you can also defend since this is a persistent world game with plenty of PvE but also PvP elements that can often be brutal and unforgiving. In that sense, H1Z1 is very straightforward, kill or die!

At the start of the game all you really have as a survivalist player is a back pack with some rags and a flare. From the start players must go around the map looking for food, wood, metal, and water, and in the midst of doing this have zombies running after them not to mention wolves. If you’re the type to delve into PvP moments either on purpose or by accident, you’ll end up with over players trying to kill you for your lot or sometimes they team up with you and make a group to help you out and get better / stronger in both PvP as well as PvE.

To get good at H1Z1 players have to just stick with it, the zombies and wolves are there for killing and you have to adapt every 30 minutes or so to find food currently plus drink some type of clean water before you die of hunger and starvation. In my opinion, the air drops that players can pay for in the game are perfectly fair except I don’t see them often enough as a person not paying for them – I was promised the chance to shoot them down or steal them from other players if I’m in their vicinity. Hopefully I get to live out that promised experience soon. If you ask me, there are too many campers who use a campfire as a friendly fire warning but then shoot you anyways in the back of the head. One time a few people picked me up and brought me around and then spoke to me about teaming up with me. Suddenly, one departed from the group briefly. He then proceeded to kill me. This kind of thrill is exhilarating and fun but there needs to also be an equal way for players to team up together. Giving each other just 2% of what you get isn’t seeming fair to me.

If you play H1Z1 and want to meet up and level up with me or go into towns, villages, and camp sites together make sure you are ready and add me. My in-game name is John1989

Impressions: EVOLVE Brings an Original Flavor of Gameplay Innovation That’s Worthwhile

Evolve Turtle Rock Studios 2K Games

Evolve on Xbox ONE has a solid frame rate, gameplay, and graphics. Over time, we’ve seen Turtle Rock Studios give a very much improved build again and again. The game overall is very quick and easy to jump in to and play and the design concept is original and good. Turtle Rock has given birth to a lot of new moments for the shooter genre and we appreciate that as the genre certainly needs revitalizing.

Evacuation Mode and the map to map, round to round changes (Turtle Rock claims results in over 800,000 possible combinations) give a dynamic feel to the game. Guns and upgrades all have a very different feeling. The game has a similar feel to Destiny in that players feel an urge to perpetually upgrade gear and bring it online with their crew.

Evolve is even more focused on gameplay and user interactions online than most games in the shooter market and will likely be judged heavily for it. There are some issues with core elements of the game being sectioned off and costing extra money but the fun factor, replay value, and dare I say innovative nature of Evolve makes these issues possible to overlook.

This game has shown promise since the start of development and I’ve personally now played more than a few builds both through public and press access, at events and from home in real world settings, and each time milestones have seemingly been met to push performance, controls, and graphics in leaps and bounds. There’s a lot of game modes that simulate other games in the genre, or add new original twists to the scene. Some of these include Rescue Mode, Nest Mode, and Defend mode. Hopefully these all stay available to play and aren’t phased in / out due to popularity – since I like diversity. But hopefully they can also be populated with games.

Evolve PS4 Xbox ONE

Balancing can be a tricky thing, and we expect more along the lines of tweaks and updates as the full build is prepared for launch, and even once its out the door. Such is the way with heavily multiplayer-centric shooters after all. But besides that, and all caveats discussed aside, So Far So GOOD!

Jermain Jackson, Deputy Editor Impressions of Evolve:

Having played the technical test on my Sony PS4, my excitement level for Evolve went from almost non-existent to, ”Give it to me NOW!”

Evolve is one of the most fun co-op experiences I’ve played in years. Even if there is no verbal communication between you and your teammates, as long as everyone plays smart and utilizes their character class’s unique abilities, you can achieve victory.

Based on gameplay footage, it seemed as though being in control of the Monster would have been the most fun part about Evolve. Boy was I wrong. For the most part, playing on the hunters’ side was just as fun and intense as playing as a Monster. Neither side felt unbalanced, each had their strengths and weaknesses.

From my experience Turtle Rock Studios has done a wonderful job of capturing the thrill of the hunt and the fight for survival. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on it come February 10, 2015.

Genre(s): First-person shooter
Platform(s): PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Publisher(s): 2K Games

Halo 5: Guardians – Multiplayer Beta Impressions

halo_5_guardians_master_chief_by_vgwallpapers-d7k20fg

Art By VGWallpapers
Halo 5 Guardians is the next installment of the highly successful FPS series and marquee Xbox Franchise will be making its way to the Xbox One later this year. 343 Industries recently gave Halo Fans who purchased “Halo The Master Chief Collection”  a chance to participate in the multiplayer beta for the game to give players a feel for the game mechanics and control scheme. Halo 5 Guardians’ Multiplayer Beta takes what players loved from the games previous entries and meshes it with things gamers expect from the modern FPS Shooters as well as stream lined a lot of the game mechanics they introduced Halo 4. Players can now jump, hover, boost, ground pound and shoot seamlessly with skipping the beat. The pace of the game is dramatically increased and the maps are refined for fast pace yet tactical gameplay. The weapons and gun play in the game are highly updated and no one weapon can decimate your opponent unlike in previous entries making aiming and shot placement even more critical than before especially in the 4V4 multiplayer modes. The targeting and scopes have been greatly improved allowing players to point and shoot with out a huge recital in the middle of the screen. The Assault Rifle, DRM, and Pistol make their return as well as some of the Covenant and Promethean weapons for the previous game. The player assassinations and take-down’s are back as well as kill reversals for those critical moments right before a player’s death. 343 has also brought player customization back allowing you fully customize your Spartan’s looks, color palate as well as your Clan Tag but the load out option has been locked for the Beta. 343 has allowed players to change their button layout so if you don’t like the new default you can change it however you like to player the game. Halo 5: Guardians looks like it will uphold the legacy of the series iconic mulitplayer mode and maybe even take it a step further. The beta does has some visually hiccups and it does take a while to join in a match at times but when you join a game you stay inside the current match. Halo 5 Guardians looks like it is on the right path and now its up to 343 Industries to follow through and finish their work on the game the data that the gain in this session as well as feedback from the community then couple that with the massive single player the company has promised us Halo 5 might just be the FPS of the year for 2015. Check out our video impressions of the Multiplayer Beta below and keep it locked to RGN for all your Halo news.

ScreenCheat – Beta Impressions

ScreenCheat - 5

ScreenCheat is a new first person shooter from SamuraiPunk and Surprise Attack Games where 4 players can “Screen Cheat” but can’t see each other. ScreenCheat has a bunch of wacky weapons, a pop-gun, a cannon launcher, a four-shot rifle and a candle stand, yes you read that right a candle stand. The action is fast and frantic with each character being one of four colors Red, Blue, Green and Yellow but you only see them when they are fragged. The gun and knife play is fun as the game is very cartoony in nature; players will not see any blood, guts or entrails while playing ScreenCheat. The game supports both control pad and Keyboard/Mouse so PC and Console FPS can both play together in harmony.

 

ScreenCheat -4

There are currently two modes available in the beta Deathmatch and King of the Hill with more to be added when the game is released. The only problems presented within ScreenCheat is  its collision detection, players will flash through walls and other obstacles in the environment but this may be the result of the beta at large as there we’re glitches present. SamuraiPunk definitely has a hit on their hands  and it will be interesting to see how finish product will turn out with all of the modes and hopefully more weapons. Check out the trailer for the game below and be sure to purchase ScreenCheat when its released later this year.

ScreenCheat - 2

MyDream Hands-On Preview

myDream RGN

MyDream is a world building game. Once you start the game you have the options of starting your own world and beginning from scratch or join other world where you can help create marvels to eye.

The entirety of the world is left up to your own machinations and designs. The game provides you with an abundance of worlds to start and it gives you a choice of what world to start in, so you don’t have to worry about randoming the right world that you want to create in.

MyDream RealGamerNewz 1

Screen cap of a sample design in a world

Upon entering the world you are allowed to build just about anything you want. The tool provided is a magical power gauntlet thingy that allows you to dig and place any dirt or rock. You’re also allowed to place blocks of materials around which in a very Minecraft-esque way are the main way to build structures currently.

Although you can also just go in and enjoy the grand views that this game can provide.

MyDream RealGamerNewz 2

If this game does one thing right, it’s that it makes you feel small

There are a few prominent bugs that do, at times, break the gameplay experience and there are some issues with the game’s optimization, however the game is still in beta and those are the kinds of things that get fixed during the beta.

The great thing about MyDream is that it has that Minecraft feel with some gameplay elements taken from “From Dust” which allows the player to further what he can design his/her dream world with even less limitations.

If you are the kind of person who loves to play world building games the MyDream is the game for you, however do start soon-.

MyDream RealGamerNewz 3

-because it takes a looooong time.

Blacklight: Retribution PS4 Hands-On Impressions

Blacklight Retribution PS4 Review

Blacklight: Retribution is an Unreal Engine first person shooter that has been released on Windows PC through Steam as well as the next-generation PlayStation 4. Although the title is currently in beta, it’s also free-to-play – meaning you can download it now and play away to your heart’s content. Because this is still a beta, we will not assign a score or perform a full review on the title at this time. Be aware, if it wasn’t for the promise of changes inherent in a ‘beta’ title this would be getting a very bad score.

Blacklight: Retribution reminds us intensely of the Modern Combat: Domination title that hit the PSN on PlayStation 3. Both titles seem like they wish they were Call of Duty, but fail miserably to reach a minimum standard of quality. There are frame rate stuttering issues, lag issues, connectivity issues (sometimes we are told we have no internet connection even though the rest of PS4’s PSN is working fine including the Party Chat).

It seems like no matter what you do in Blacklight: Retribution the action is very random, luck-based, and glitch-filled. The controls feel wonky and take a lot of adjusting before they feel nearly normal. The maps are too large or just not populated enough so that means lots of running around to the action just for you to die and start over again. Host migration occurs on a regular basis, and hosts get such an advantage that it’s ridiculous. There are also CE-34878-0 errors occurring at times which will crash the game and prompt you to send a detailed report to Sony.

Zombie Studios may still make this into a decent piece of shooter. Somehow there is still a dedicated community playing the game, a group of newcomers who find it promising, and a potential for a real profit to be made on the micro-transaction system while allowing a free competitive FPS game to exist on PS4. However, at this time it is an almost unplayable game on PlayStation 4. We implore Zombie Studios to work on the issues we’ve revealed here and unfortunately there’s not really much more to say about the game until these issues are fixed.

Developer: Zombie Studios

Publisher: Perfect World Entertainment

Luke’s Impressions of the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes English Trailer

SnakeHayterTweet

So what did you guys think about the new Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes trailer?? Well yes, it’s the same one shown last year at the VGA Awards – but this time in English!!! As I heard Keefer Sutherland’s voice mutter them famous words “Kept you waiting, Huh”, I was in awe.

For me he nailed it but many would disagree and that’s fine because not all of the voice acting in this trailer is perfect. Skullface, the mysterious new Protagonist with a Burnt face and rocking a badazz duster-coat, really got me excited because if there’s one thing Kojima knows how to do it’s to make the best villains in the business. So I was awaiting to see what voice he would hold, and as it turns out it sounds nothing like his character and to be honest. I was quite disappointed in this. The other voice is a familiar one – Kaz, who still has the same voice actor Robin Atkin Downes which I was more than happy with.

All in all the voice acting in my opinion was great except for Skullface but who knows, I may be wrong because not much of the Trailer shows him talking.

Please – if you haven’t gone and checked out the trailer I advise you to check it out HERE, yes it’s the same trailer but it gives us a taste of what is to come and at first it may sound weird hearing Keefer corrupt our beloved snake’s voice but I couldn’t have picked a better voice for snake. You can tell he cares about the character which is what the Metal Gear series needs. There is also a new direct feed demo of the game HERE without the Japanese commentary nor the bad feed and also the sounds of the game are much louder in this one. For more information about the upcoming title check out our dedicated Metal Gear Solid V Section Here.

Payday 2 Beta Impressions

I’m not really one to make a judgement off of a beta so I’ll keep this short. An exception can be made for 505 and Overkill’s next installment of the franchise considering that it is buy to play beta (a system I’m not too fond of as it is. That’s another thing I will address one of these days). The game was fun and intriguing like I was hoping it’d be. I wasn’t a big fan of the first one simply because I didn’t like the robbing aspect. Not that I find that wrong or anything. If you like robbing people on your free time, then that’s what you like to do. I’m just not a fan of being a criminal in games which is also a reason why I’m not a big GTA fan. Not sure what it is because I’ve stolen more than enough ladies hearts in my day. So that makes me a real life criminal.

Like that? Yeah. I knew you would. Anyway, back to the game! I only invested a total of 30 minutes into the game mostly due to some technical difficulties, but I had fun waiting for my drill to open the safe as I impatiently and angrily paced back and forth. For some reason, an alarm was triggered because apparently my accomplices have never robbed a jewelry store before! I wish the A.I. could have been a little more responsive when it came to that, but it’s a beta! A beta that is also pretty much in the completion stage, though.

It also could have been on me to guard the hostages, drill the safe, grab all 6 bags, and then jet to the van, but what good are these other guys if they’re just sitting around crouched down? Also, what’s the deal with the getaway van getting away when the cops haven’t arrived yet, but coming back in the middle of gunfire in the middle of the police for us to all jump in?

The game seems to promise a lot of fun and I think the real core of the game will be with multiplayer on this one. Something I didn’t get to experience this weekend. Perhaps next weekend, or even launch!

Are you in the beta? Are you Enjoying it? Payday 2 releases for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 13, 2013 (and August 16, 2013 if you’re in Europe).

First 48: Anno Online Impressions

Anno Online Review

While we will have a complete Review coming to the website very soon for Ubisoft Blue Byte’s Anno Online, I wanted to take a few minutes to give you my impressions after getting my teeth sunk into it a little bit. For starters, the tutorial and active, mature community of gamers in Anno Online help to walk you through every bit of getting started.

The essence of this game is the experience of ruling over an island eventually set to become a full fledged empire of citizens, constantly evolving themselves and their social standards. With these evolutions also come higher demands for certain products such as wool, wood, food, faith (in the form of churches), and much more. Trade by Sea, and discovery of up to 4 new islands for free also occurs (more can be purchased later). This allows you to expand your empire even further.

Anno Online can be compared to SimCity once you get the hang of it. It’s basically a non-violent real-time-strategy game that allows you to build and build while being challenged to balance and control the flow of resources. You will have to weigh out your budget and prevent from running at a loss while also trying to expand your reach and populate your land with people. Starting out can be frustrating for new players, but thankfully there are plenty of respectable people online playing it to help you along.

Once you get really deep into the mechanics and understand what you are doing you will be able to easily play the game without thinking too hard. At this point the game becomes very addictive and enjoyable as you gain a full appreciation for the simulation that’s taking place. It’s something like a mix between playing god and playing a video game. Anno Online can be played for free in your web browser, to start now CLICK HERE and be on the lookout for a more in-depth and full review coming to RealGamerNewz.com soon.
