Detroit: Becoming Human a Review

I am not new to playing Quantic Dream games.  I’ve played Heavy Rain and Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy years ago.  Both games I played through.  If you know me, you’d know that me and playing games completely through do not go hand in hand.  I spend a lot of time playing Call of Duty multiplayer.

Two weeks ago I began playing Detroit: Becoming Human.  I had read reviews, seen the trailers and read comments.  Still, I didn’t know what I was getting in to at the time.

In Detroit, you control 3 different androids, essentially created by humans to either help humans or be their companions.  We play as Connor, a detective, Kara, a nanny type and Marcus, more of a companion to an older gentleman named Carl.

This and the previous games I mentioned are absolutely story driven.  It’s not your hack and slash kind of games.  Every single choice you make has a very important consequence.

As you play through the game you begin to feel for the androids, at least I did.  I saw a lot of what we are going through here in the U.S in this game.  Which really made it feel real.  There were many, many  times when I was so embroiled in the game that my emotions had gotten the best of me.

The game isn’t long, but there is a lot to do and a lot of thinking to do.  Yet in your first run through, you really don’t know what exactly is going to happen.  You just know that the androids are having feelings, that humans are trying to suppress them.  I really didn’t encounter too many androids that were bad, they had all been programmed well.  Connor was the most advanced android I controlled and boy when you get to the end, and realize you made the wrong choices, it makes you feel bad.

It is one of those games where you do have to hit the keys in order as they appear on the screen.  Similar to the first few God of Wars (the new one is pretty good too, but that’s for another post).

Quantic Dreams doesn’t have many games but the ones they do are high quality, I feel the same way about Rockstar games.  I am playing Beyond Two Sounds right now, which is included in the PS Now line up.  For $19.99. a months it is definitely worth it, to have access to over 600 games, some even are ps3 games and that’s okay, some of those were great, and able to be played again, even years later.  Check out the trailer for Detroit: Become Human below, but I highly recommend checking this game out on your own.  The trailer doesn’t do it justice.

E3 2018 Begins Tomorrow

It’s that time again, E3 will flood downtown LA bringing with it an immense collections of games, world premieres and tech marvels.  If you were lucky enough to get a badge, the next 3 days is going to be a wild ride.   We have seen the conferences ahead of time and it seems that the big companies are bringing great products for all of us to see.

There are many games I am excited for, though I can’t list them all here but one is definitely The Last of us II.

This is just a taste of what I am looking forward too. Of course this is PS4 exclusive.

We will be updating our Facebook and Instagram daily as we make. our way through the show.  Please be sure to take a look at what we post and look at our pictures.

 

For Honor Open Beta

I remember being on the E3 show floor and watching the big screen they had playing above us.  It was a game that showed a viking who was in battle, with some the most amazing weaponry and gear i’ve ever seen in a video game.  I watched, and finally the name of game scrolled across the screen. For Honor.

That has been over a year now, and I’m so happy about playing the open beta on Feb 9-12.  I chose to play as the Samurai and it is a game that I could find myself playing this for many hours.

The release date on For Honor is February 14th.   Will you be picking this game up?

Here is the first 15 minutes of gameplay, brought to us by IGN.

E3 2017 to be Made Available to The Public

 

E3 2017

 

E3, the Electronic Gaming Expo of the year has been made available to the public for the first time since it’s beginning. This is going to make for an interesting show floor, since it won’t be catering to industry or press only.  The gamers will be there and they will be heard.

E3 2017 is June 13-15 this year, while briefings will begin Sunday June 11.

Pricing for the tickets were $149.00 for the first 1,000 people.  After that it bumped up to $249.  This is a decent price for attendance to this exclusive event.

Many details of the show haven’t been disclosed to us yet. We do know EA will be there, inside and usually outside too.  This I find to be one of the best parts of E3.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet and will be in the LA area, swing over to the E3 website.
