Whew. Two in one today! After I went into town and grabbed The Evil Within and Conkers Bad Fur Day, I discovered a package at my door. Turns out I was sent a Review copy of Shadow Warrior on PS4! Totally forgot about that!
Ill just tell you right now, its one of the best shooters you can play! It was terrific last year on PC, and so it is on Xbox One and PS4 in Digital and Physical copies. If you want to see it in action: watch this smallish vid I did several months ago. Its for a contest, so yeah:
Now, The Evil Within. Let me just vent this right now, I HATE THE BULLSHIT EXCUSE FOR 30FPS! I am sick and freaking tired of developers lying about their excuses to cripple their games! GAME ARE NOT MOVIES!!!!!! If it cannot reach a higher FPS due to technical limitations, then fine--but to lock it on PC AND the other consoles is horrendous. That combined with its aspect ration makes for a frustrating camera, and it hinders the atmospheric induction it tries to bestow on you.
....Ok, rant over. Other than that, the game is great! I love survival horror, and to see the creator of Resident Evil return is amazing! Shooting is tense, every encounter can very well be your last, and every missed shot is like a knife in the chest.
The games story is falling pretty flat already, but I am digging its atmosphere and visuals. The game simply looks stunning, and the enemies are legitimately threatening. Its not scary like Alien Isolation was, and thats pretty much due to its obsessive amounts of gore. Blood does not equal scary, it equals disgust.
Keeping it short, I have to play more to render a better judgement. But right now, pick up Shadow Warrior!
