Zoey or Lara… rebooted!

Posted by spiii on March 30th, 2013 @ 20:52

This Zoey or <heroine> review series began with Tomb Raider: Anniversary (see Zoey or Lara…?).
Now we’re going back to our roots to discover if the Tomb Raider reboot is everything you’ve wanted in a cinematic campaign. (Answer: it is!)

Weapon of choice
Lara with her bow
The silent killer (yep, it’s a bow—it’s awesome)
Zoey posed with pistols outs
L4D2 gives Zoey melee weapons, but she still loves pistols
Fashionable upgrades
Lara's hair
finally a good use for GPU physics: hair by TRESSFX
Zoey in KISS skin
mods give Zoey an all new look (and many more)
Looks better wet
Lara hiding in a pool of blood
Lara submerged in blood
Zoey caught by a boomer
Zoey covered in goop
Xbox merchandising
Tomb Raider Xbox controller
Limited edition controller (realistic battle damage!)
Modified Xbox with L4D decals
You’ll have to make your own

So is Tomb Raider worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?) If being able to tell your mates “yeah, I got lost on an island with other survivors and I wasn’t watching TV” is as important to you as it is to me, then yes.

In truth, this is one of the best cinematic, story driven single-player games I’ve ever played (if not THE best). If you like that type of game experience, you’ll love this. (It’s got multiplayer but I haven’t tried that.)

I was wondering why a two year old game Arma II is so consistently on the top of the best sellers chart on steam. Well it’s because of this:

I was talking to Ali about it last night. It’s an MMO first-person zombie apocalypse simulator. 250km2 of open world with zombies everywhere. No map, a little ammo and a pistol.

I’ve been watching the youtubes out there, some are like watching small B-Grade short films. Very compelling, looking gameplay. Might be a hit at the LAN. Mod = Free, Game Engine $30.

Zoey or Batman…?

Nana-nana nana-nana nana-nana-na — BATMAN!

Seen spiii playing nothing but Batman Arkham City and wondered—“is he gonna spend the whole Summer of Ben 2011 playing only one game?” Perhaps. But is it a game for everyone? There is only one way to find the answer—switch on detective mode, it’s time to compare heroines!

Weapon of choice
Whip and claws of Catwoman
This kitty has claws
Zoey posed with pistols outs
Zoey’s trademark pistols
Shoes make the man
Catwoman kicking a thug
Knee-high kickers
Zoey's shoe
The hunt is on!
Catwoman beating up a thug—hunter style
Catwoman is a hunter
Hunter pounces on Zoey
Zoey is the hunted
All tied up
Catwoman lashed to Batman
Catwoman ties ’em up
Zoey caught by smoker
Zoey is constricted!
Kiss the boys and make them cry
Catwoman kiss+trip fight move
Kiss + trip critical strike
Francis shocked as Zoey kisses a witch
Not that again!
Best in Lego
Lego Catwoman holding a whip and fishbones
Official Batman Lego and an official Lego Batman game
Zoey and Bill lego minifigs
Minifig excellence—but no Lego game!
Best fan video

Stunt studio remake

Fake movie trailer
Random quote
Arkham thug: [window shatters offscreen] It’s Batman!
[Catwoman walks into view]
Arkham thug: What the h**l?
Catwoman: Sorry to disappoint you boys. It’s just little ol’ me.
Francis: Hey, watch out for that Steam pipe.
Zoey: Man, I love Steam.
Francis: Yeah, Steam’s alright, I guess.

So is Batman Arkham City worth your dosh? (What is dosh anyway?)
If saying “I’m Batman!” every day to friends, family and social networks is as important to you as it is to me, then you are probably Bajo yes.

Be the man on 3 October

Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood

Posted by spiii on January 2nd, 2011 @ 22:18

Assassin’s Creed is a single player stealth sandbox type game—I’ve enjoyed the original and the sequel and recommend them if you’re after some single player fun!

High profile assassination

Brotherhood is the third and latest game, released on consoles late 2010 and due for PC in 2011—it bring multiplayer! Last year the clan flagged “Global Agenda” as the must have release for the year, possibly because of the funky magenta assassins. This year I’m saying assassins ain’t about funky pink robes, it’s about a*s-kicking throughout history! One to watch.
