As 2014 draws to a close, I’d like to wish all of you the best in the coming year – time to let go of all of the past year’s bad juju and move on with our lives. In 2015, may your enemies know the depth of your mercy, and may your family and friends know the warmth of your love. SONIC BOOOOOOOM!
Briefly sat down with In the Hunt last night. My Mom was right – these games would destroy my eyes. I’m terrible at shooters, but I’m pretty sure games like this are why I wear glasses now.
If I’m not mistaken, this game shares common creators with the Metal Slug franchise – it’s unquestionable that they both share a similar art style. While the Saturn version is hampered by slowdown, it is still an extremely good looking game – I’ve posted a few screen shots and a video of one of the game’s more memorable levels below.
In my spare time, I have been slowly plodding through The Evil Within on the PS4. A lot valid of criticism has been leveled at the game’s performance and artistic design (those black bars are pretty rough) – but I’m happy to report that it really picks up about 5-6 hours in:
If you’ve got time to slog through the early goings, I strongly suggest giving this one a shot. The Evil Within essentially becomes more and more like Resident Evil 4-2 the longer at goes on – and that is a good thing. I’ll post more impressions once I’ve finished.
