Odin Sphere Leifthrasir Demo

Odin sphere was Originally released in May 2007, the game tells the interlocking stories of five different protagonists and was published for Playstation 2. I have been playing this game for a very long time during my highschool days and I love it. So as soon as I saw that they released a Demo version on the Playstation 4, I had to check what’s new. I played with all 5 characters on the Demo and uploaded the gameplay to youtube,

Now Odin Sphere is divided into several chapters, during which the story of one of the five playable characters progressively unfolds. Within the acts of each chapter, the player can obtain information relating to the upcoming “mission”, as well as buy and sell goods prior to setting off for the next destination. There is an overarching chronological story that is split among the five characters, with their individual stories intersecting at places (for example, early on within Gwendolyn’s progression, Gwendolyn will fight Velvet, an event duplicated in Velvet’s story progression). As a result, the player will slowly experience the entire sequence of events from each characters’ limited point of view. Only one character story is available at the start, but as the player completes those stories, the “books” for other characters unlock one at a time.

The story is quite awesome as I already finished this game on the Playstation 2 version but I hope the story has some twist or secrets with its version now on the Playstation 4. Most of the characters’ attack pattern has changed, new skills, better graphics and I love it!

I’m definitely going to buy Odin Sphere and play again ❤

Split Screen Co-op (PVP)

I played with my Brother IIIMercuryIII on the same console as they game allows you to play in split screen. We played on a 5vs 5 match. I selected my hero

w3
Character Select

Thorn (Archer class) while he picked Marquis (Sniper/Territorial Class) . We were up against players who were 10-20lvs ahead of us
The heroes look amazing as every heroes has their roles to play similar to those MOBA games like League of legends, etc. Our goal in the match is to help our minions reach the grinder unlike Other games out there you punch the nexus to death but here, you cannot just destroy it, you would have to escort the minons to win.w6
The game starts where all 5 of us are inside a lobby being guided by the announcer in game, as soon as the countdown starts, there are two lanes (Depending on the map as currently the map open is paradise for this Match.) Players get to earn shards as this is the currency used to build Turrets to help defend territory, Accelerators to control minions’ movement, Supply Stations to recover health for nearby team members and MX Elite Bots that are tougher and stronger compared to the normal minions. To earn shards, we noticed that there were big Shard Clusters that give tons of shards to be utilized in the match. Upon playing the game we noticed we should not ignore the minion waves and always escort them in order to win the match.

w1Matching up against a high level player has its disadvantages as they are able to utilize other skills for their heroes which are not yet unlocked by new players. But it really depends on player skills and teamwork to win. So, to make the story short we won!

Cannot wait for Battleborn to launch once open beta ends.

We can’t wait for the PlayStation VR to be Released

PlayStation VR, known by the codename Project Morpheus during development, is a virtual reality gaming head-mounted display developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment and manufactured by Sony, scheduled to launch in October 2016. Now I wasn’t expecting PlayStation VR to have its prices at $399 compared to its competitors, and  especially that it will hit stores in October 2016 – just in time for Christmas.

I can’t wait for these to be out in Public. As the future seems bright ❤

I wonder how players would feel when they play Fantasy games and see the world within the VR, how they would react if they were playing a horror game as they are being followed by monsters and ghosts. Oh gaaadd…

I Love you PlayStation!

The gameplay of Reality Fighters takes the classic fighting game mechanics, bringing them to a wider, more mainstream focus.

To begin with, the player takes a photo of the face using the front or rear camera. Using face detection technology, the game can then recreate a character with the player’s likeness. The game lets players choose gender and body shape, and wear over 400 pieces of clothing. The game also allows players to choose among 15 fight styles, and over 50 weapons. Fight styles, weapons and clothes choice affect gameplay, by unlocking new combos or modifying the damage or armor of specific body parts. For example, a helmet will better protect the head, and a pair of boots will boost kicking ability.

Reality Fighters offers dual control. On one side, the game can be played via buttons alone, with a classic control method. On the other, the game can be played via the front and rear touch, which allow the player to perform all combos in a more accessible way. There are six different game modes, namely Story Mode, Survivor, Quick Fight, Time Attack, Online versus, and Boss mode. The game also supports social features of PSVita like online leaderboards, friend lists, or NEAR. Finally, players can pose and take photos of their characters

4) I Am Alive (PS3)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I Am Alive is a survival video game developed and published by Ubisoft. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting and focuses on facing the permanent insecurity of a dystopian, decaying and hazardous world, and humanity’s darkest inclinations towards brutality and materialism.

The player controls the main character from a third person perspective during navigation, the camera switches to first-person when aiming and shooting. During encounters with hostile survivors, the player can use various tactics to stay alive, including sneaking to surprise enemies with a machete quick kill, performing stealth kills with a bow, or using bluff and intimidation.

Every effort has a cost and, when engaging in physically demanding activities, such as climbing or jumping, it is critical to manage the main character’s stamina for him to survive. By managing stamina skillfully players are rewarded by accessing hidden paths, resources and other survivors.

Gameplay also involves collecting hidden resources and supplies scattered throughout the city: water, food, batteries, gas, medicine, cigarettes, tools, climbing gear, weapons, and ammunition. Anything that the player can salvage from the destroyed city can be used to keep the main characters strong and healthy, or prove helpful in his quest by allowing him to rescue survivors. Retries can be collected throughout the game by helping or rescuing people, with optional side quests to complete.
