I am a massive fan of fighting games. This should be no secret to those who have read my previous work here. When Killer Instinct was announced and then released for Xbox One, I was excited since the series is a beloved one and fans have been clamoring for a revival for years. With the game’s recent launch on Steam, I have finally gotten the chance to play and experience the reboot for myself.

Let me start out by saying that Killer Instinct is a gorgeous game. The particle effects are second to none and every detail of the visuals is just incredible. The game is a true work of art and that is not even getting to the gameplay yet. In terms of the gameplay, Killer Instinct has one of the best tutorials of any fighting game, and a worthy rival to Guilty Gear for the claim of best fighting tutorial ever. It really shows you how to play even if you are not very good at most fighting games.

I love that Killer Instinct is easy to learn but difficult to master, as it creates a unique playing field. The gameplay is fast and intense, and with the awesome characters available, you will want to play them all. I was unsure what I would think of the new additions to the roster but Double Helix and then Iron Galaxy did a great job with the game. It just feels right. Every hit feels like it means something, and that might be due to the way the music syncs up with the gameplay.

Speaking of the music, this game has some amazing audio and more than lives up to the music of its predecessors. That in itself is a high achievement, but the game more than stands on its own, as it is some of the best music ever in a video game. You can tell so much love was put into this, both in tributes to what came before and in terms of new ideas.

Killer Instinct is a must play for everyone. The online play is awesome with little to no issues, and as the Steam version is the complete version with all content, there is a good amount of single player gameplay as well. This is the best revival of a classic fighting game that has ever been done and I fully recommend checking this out. I am eager to see what modders will do with the game, similar to games like Street Fighter V on Steam, but that is another story. The game runs well, plays well and is just all around amazing. I do not want to sound gushing but I really have no complaints about this. I do not regret the purchase of the game in any way and feel you all will not regret it either.

Ever since Creation Club was announced at E3 2017, I was curious and worried about what to expect. Paid mods had been tried before and ended up being a bad idea then, so how would Bethesda handle it now?

I cannot comment on how Creation Club is with regards to Fallout 4, but Skyrim is another matter. As soon as the update launched for Steam, I was there to check it out, and see what was offered. As it stands now, I am very disappointed in the offerings and with good reason. While the limited offering are understandable as Creation Club just launched for Skyrim, the issues is that what is there, is expensive and often times has better free alternatives.

Admittedly, the free alternatives are more for PC users, even with free console mods, but it does raise a major issue. That is the pricing and nature of the content. Consider the Hearthfire DLC. It brought new houses that you could build yourself, adoption, new followers and minor quests along with some other content. It also only cost around five dollars. Compare this to some of the Creation Club offerings which are asking up to four dollars for a single weapon. Granted there is a quest often attached to some of the Creation Club offerings but they are nothing all that special.

Sheogorath’s staff for example is 2.50 and boasts of having a bonus artifact…… which is a fork. The quest to get it is nothing special and the actual item is just a magic staff that looks unique but doesn’t offer much. There is also Chrysamere, which looks almost exactly like it does in Morrowind, and that is not a good thing. To get it, you go through a dungeon as part of a quest, that sounds good except for the fact that the dungeon is just like every other dungeon with nothing unique in it. It is a superfluous quest that offers nothing, other than taking your money.

What is worse is that Chrysamere, and Stendar’s Hammer ( another offering), both have free alternatives that look and play much better. A major selling point Bethesda pushed was that Creation Club would have unique content, but the content just feels like paid versions of stuff you can get for free elsewhere, and better versions as well to boot. Then we have the four dollar option “Plague of the Dead”, which was hyped as a zombie mod…….and is essentially a minor quest, to kill retextured Draugr with minimal other effects. Some more undead spawn randomly after but again, it isn’t worth the money. There are more pieces for sale but I think you all get the point.

There is one other piece of content mention though. Originally when I wrote my first draft, I mentioned there was one piece that did stand out as worth getting. Ruin’s Edge is 4 dollars, which again is steep, but the bow was highly detailed, and there wasn’t anything like it elsewhere, and it had some truly unique features and ideas. It was truly unique to Creation Club. The key word in that last sentence being “was”. Within a few days, there was a free version made available for PC players and it is superior in almost every way. The Creation Club version visually looks better and has some neat touches, but the random effects were picked from a small set. The free version has a lot more variety to its effects and is far more true to the spirit of Shivering Isles. In addition, the quest to get the Ruin’s Edge in the free version is far superior and is a truly unique quest that involves returning to the Shivering Isles and ends with a memorable boss fight. I can no longer suggest the Creation Club version and this was almost the final straw for me. But There is also another issue with Creation Club that I have not mentioned yet. That issue is that some of the content offered has been causing issues for players, such as corrupted saves, and game crashes, which has ruined hours of gameplay for many people.

I want to like creation club and went in with an open mind but it was honestly as bad as people said it would be. Maybe Bethesda can turn this around, but it has definitely not left a good impression so far.

Street Fighter V will finally be getting a much wanted feature.

 

We’re thrilled to announce Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, coming to all our warriors around the world on January 16, 2018! As the name suggests, this edition includes the highly-requested Arcade Mode, but it also includes much much more! If you’ve been spectating on the sidelines or waiting for the right moment to join the fight, you’ll definitely want to check this out. Without further ado, let’s get to what’s inside!

First off, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come with all 28 characters, which includes those from Season 1 and Season 2 – there’s still one more character that we’ll be announcing very soon. In order to introduce more variety in each match, all characters will receive a second V-Trigger you can choose before the match begins! It’s time to see what else your main character is capable of. We’ll be rolling out more details in the future.

 

As previously stated, Arcade Mode will be present, but this isn’t your cookie cutter version. Being the #1 requested addition to Street Fighter V, we’re making sure it’ll be an experience rather than just a mode. As it’s our 30th anniversary year, we wanted to add even more to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition! Extra Battle Mode, V-Trigger moves, Gallery, and a UI design overhaul are among the features we can’t wait to show you in the future. There’s a lot of information to share with each of these new additions, so keep an eye out as we approach January.

 

Ready for even better news? As we promised in the past, the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is still the only one that you’ll need as the new gameplay-related content in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be part of a free in-game update for current players once it releases! That means if you currently play Street Fighter V, you won’t need to purchase anything else to get Arcade Mode, Extra Battle Mode, etc. – you’ll just need to download the update! For those who don’t currently have Street Fighter V, you’ll be able to purchase Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for $39.99, which will include everything we’ve mentioned above. We wanted to make sure there’s something to celebrate for both current and new players alike.
Thank you for your feedback and for supporting Street Fighter V throughout the years! We’re listening and are planning to bring you something we’re really proud of and can finally announce. Here’s to many more years to come for Street Fighter V!

 

It is good that the game is finally getting the features like this. Will it help the game turn things around? We will have to see.

About Clockwork City

The Clockwork City DLC game pack will take Tamriel adventurers through a new zone unlike any other — Sotha Sil’s legendary Clockwork City — to investigate a new Daedric threat. The DLC game pack presents hours of fresh Elder Scrolls stories and is jammed with unforgettable architecture, strange creatures, and powerful hybrid monsters.

Players can get a sneak peek at Clockwork City content by embarking on the prologue quest, now live for all players, to investigate prominent diviners, scholars, and planar archaeologists who are being murdered by their own shadows. Players can travel to any local Mages Guild headquarters in Tamriel to find a note on a table titled “Order of the Eye Dispatch.” Reading the note will give the quest “Of Knives and Long Shadows,” and send players on their new adventure.  Once complete, players will receive the “Clockwork Obscuros” memento in their Collection.

The Elder Scrolls Online just keeps getting better and better. As a massive fan of The Elder Scrolls, this author appreciates all the work being put into the game and the sheer amount of detail. This is not one to miss.

Tomorrow, just in time for the Halloween season, Iceberg Interactive is releasing a brand-new psychological horror game for the PC!

Inmates is a horror game with puzzle elements in which the player must seek out the truth behind their imprisonment and the secrets held within the prison they find themselves locked away in.

Here’s an except from the game’s Steam description:

You’ve awoken from a nightmare, Jonathan. But did it truly end? You are in a seedy prison cell and have no clue how you got there. You’re terrified and confused, but you also feel something else: a painful sense of familiarity. You’ve convinced yourself this is all just a bad dream. Unfortunately, according to the voice coming from the old radio, things are not as simple as you’d like them to be.

Delve deep into your psyche while trying to stay sane, in this most disturbing of horror games.

The game has been developed with Unreal Engine 4 and is estimated to take around three or four hours to finish.

So if you’re looking for something new to play this Halloween, don’t miss Inmates when it releases on October 5, 2017!
