Killing Floor 2 Coming to Xbox One Platform

Killing Floor 2

Tripwire Interactive announced yesterday that their popular Zed slaughtering FPS Co-op game Killing Floor 2 will be arriving on the Xbox One platform on August 29th.

I’ve confirmed via a Tweet from Tripwire that it will not be a Play Anywhere title and will not have cross network play between Xbox One and PC players due to balance differences and the fact that they use Steamworks and that apparently will not work with Xbox Live. I find that odd since Rocket League uses Steamworks and has cross network play with Xbox One. They also mentioned via a Tweet that they are working on a new boss, however it will be awhile before it shows up. Continue reading

An apt day for a discount of a zombie game, the day after the father of modern zombies passed away.

RIP George Romero

A sad thing happened yesterday. The creator of the modern zombie horror genre, George A. Romero passed away from lung cancer. He was 77 years old.

Romero was not the first to create zombie horror films, but he was the first to use infectious disease as the cause and create the rambling, wandering brain eating zombies we know and love today. It all started with his 1968 film Night of the Living Dead which, through some misfortune of his own doing is a Public Domain movie that anyone can freely download and watch. He went on to create a few sequels all relying on the same brain starved slow moving zombies.

His zombie creations didn’t just inspire movies like Shaun of the Dead and the remake of Dawn of the Dead, but he also inspired many zombie games and starred in Call of Duty Black Op’s Call of the Dead zombie expansion where he was basically impossible to kill. Unless you use the Dragunov apparently.

The first tier, pay $1 or more gets you three games.

  • Strider which retails normally for $15 and currently sits at a very positive 87% with Steam users. Strider is a Metroidvania type platformer that was released in 2014. This game has Steam Achievements and Trading Cards.
  • Umbrella Corps which was Capcom’s PVP shooter take on Resident Evil. It currently lists for $30, $40 for a Deluxe Version exists. The game however has been poorly received. It currently stands at Mostly Negative with just 34% giving it a “Yes” vote. The game released over a year ago June 21, 2016. According to Steam Spy the game has only 8,800 owners. Not good for a multiplayer game. It also show under 1,000 people have played it in the last two weeks. It has Steam Achievements and Trading Cards. My advice if you get this tier, farm the cards and sell them.
  • DmC: Devil May Cry a very good Action Hack and Slash game and the fifth installment in the Devil May Cry series serving as a reboot. It currently sits with Very Positive review with 94% giving it a “Yes”. The game was released in 2013 and has both Steam Achievements and Trading Cards.

Call Of Duty: World At War Review

The fact that Jack Bauer is yelling at you all game is worth it! CoD WaW offered up a 4 player Co-Op campaign. The only CoD game to offer this level of play sans Zombies. Playing the campaign with even just two other people was a lot of fun. Calling out to watch your six and just be in the middle of total carnage with your buddies is a fun and worthwhile experience.

That being said, the real gem is the Zombies mode. Battle waves of Zombies on your own to survive and complete objectives or have as many friends help you out. Treyarch allowed modding with this game and so the community built two really amazing Zombie mods. Continue reading

Deadlight Review

If you’re not great at platformers, don’t worry, this game is gentle. Great story and easy accessibility. Worth the current sale price. I haven’t really played platformers in decades. Not since my original NES and I found I could play this without much trouble at all. So with a not too difficult challenge the story keeps you going as does the visuals. Love the graphics and setting. You play as a father who is searching desperately to find his daughter. Along the way you meet interesting characters, some of who are friendly and others who are not.

It took me around 6 hours to complete so you can finish it in with just a few game sessions. Will our protagonist find his daughter? Or will he find something else?

Should you buy this game? YES.
