Catherine Full Body

MobyGames.comHello everyone and yes I know its been a while since my last post but its okay. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty shall we?

This time I’m going to be reviewing Catherine Full Body which is the remake if the classic Catherine that was made by Atlus and Sega which came out in early 2011. Now, if your concerned that you have to play the first Catherine in order to understand the story in Catherine Full Body, don’t be!

Both games have many differences between each other but the main story is pretty much the same in whichever you decide to play first. But, if you really want appreciate all the tweaks and changes they’ve made from the original then go right ahead. Now the first change, they’ve made was pretty obvious and that was the amount of girls Vincent was able to choose from. In the first game, his only choices were Catherine, Katherine or stay single. While in the Full Body game, you get both girls plus a new girl named Rin.

Personally, I love Rin because she’s so pure, open minded and isn’t into playing mind games like the other two girls are. I feel like she’s a combination of the two but only taking both girls good points and none of the bad. Another change that I’ve noticed is that the developers filled in all of the holes that last Catherine left without any answers. If you’ve played the first game then you know what I’m talking about.

Both Catherine games have multiple endings but in Rin’s case; getting her ending is a bit tricky if you don’t know what to look for. Personally, I had to play the game over and over until I finally figured out how to get Rin’s ending. Once you do figure it out it becomes surprisingly obvious and your sitting there wondering how you couldn’t have realized it sooner.

Vincent FreakoutOverall, this game was awesome and brought back a lot of old memories for when I played the original game. I do recommend that you try to get all of the endings and hidden scenes within the game. Some of them are really hilarious or you can watch the playthrough of the Catherine Full Body game which I will leave down below at the bottom of the page.

Catherine's SeductionThis game is made for mature audiences only in both versions of the game. There are A LOT of sexual themes in this game if you haven’t noticed from the game’s cover. When you play this game, I suggest you make honest choices that you would make in the situations Vincent is going to go through; it makes it a lot more fun. Hope you enjoy Catherine’s dark and funny adventure!

Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey

GameWatcher.comHello everyone, I hope your having a wonderful day.

Today I’m going be talking about Atelier Firis which is the sequel game to Atelier Sophie, which came out in November of 2015. I really enjoyed playing the first game so much that I couldn’t wait to play the next one. A general summary of the game if your unfamiliar with the series is that your main character is an alchemist and your job is to collect items, ingredients or destroy monsters in order to create items using alchemy to help solve your or other peoples problems.

For this installment, your main character is Firis a shy, super good girl character who has an unique ability to find ore in mines. Her ability comes in handy since she lives in an underground city that only a select few get to go out or in. According to the story only certain people can go in and out the gate and for some reason Firis isn’t one of them whose greatest desire is to go outside the city and travel the outside world. But, no one (especially her parents) believes that she can go outside and survive long enough to tell the tale. Until she meets a certain someone who literally blows a hole in her world and gives her the tools to survive the outside world, so she can prove to everyone that she’s not a weak little girl to be coddled.

GameTrend.comWhen I first played the game I felt like I was thrown back into my childhood because the graphics reminded me a lot of when I was playing video games on my PlayStation 2. It wouldn’t have bothered me if it was the same level of graphics from the first game which is wasn’t. The Atelier Sophie was way better graphic wise and I would like to think its because the first game’s release didn’t do so well as the developers hoped, so they had to cut the budget in certain areas. Even with that in mind, I simply am enjoying this game a lot so far. The story sucks you in to a point that you can’t wait to see what will happen next that something like how good the graphics are doesn’t even matter anymore.

I would very much like to say that you can start any atelier game in the series without getting lost since each one has their own story, but when their are moments when other characters from the previous games pop in to say hi. It kind of makes you want to start from the very beginning of the series. So, you can fully appreciate what’s really happening when they appear, but that’s entirely up to you.

I’m really enjoying game and I hope you do too if your into adventure or rpgs with anime moments, but if your not that okay. I would definitely recommend this to beginner gamers because the controls are so easy to understand. But, if you prefer to watch the gameplay unfold then I’ll leave the a link to my gameplay at the bottom to watch to your heart’s content.

Kingdom Hearts 3

Hello, everyone! Its been awhile since my last post but I’m back once again.

Today I’m going to be talking about the new game that came out recently and that is Kingdom Hearts 3 which was published and developed by Square Enix. This is the twelfth installment in the game series and sequel to Kingdom Hearts 2. Also, this recent game could be the very last in the series, but who knows. The story revolves around our good friends Sora, Donald and Goofy who have to go on a journey to find his own way of finding his power of awakening in order to get the rest of his powers back.

VidaExtra.comXehanort almost took over Sora completely in a previous game, but failed. Sadly, Sora lost most of his powers in the process and now has to find a way to get them back before Xehanort can carry out his evil plan. With that in mind, Sora must once again travel across worlds and find his own way of getting his powers back.

In a good portion of the game, Sora’s fighting style is very weak looking and for obvious reasons. This change is not only obvious to the person playing the game, but to the characters in the story, as well. The other details that I’ve noticed in the game are the new moves and functions created within the game. There are ALOT of new moves when fighting in this game, so many that if it wasn’t for the fact that most can be activated with the triangle button (for PS4) I probably would have forgotten how to use them soon after the tutorial was finished. Make no mistake, that some of them are cool and fun to look at while others look just plain unnecessary as if they were trying to get that ultimate Disneyland feel into the game.

Gfycat.comIf that is what the game developers were going for then they have succeeded. They were lots of times in mid gameplay that I felt like I teleported in a Disneyland attraction ride. Also, it seems that they have changed certain features that were present in the previous Kingdom Hearts games. For example, they’ve changed the whole layout and controls of the Gummi ship. It took me a while to figure out the ship’s new controls, but got a quick handle of them. The reason I think that they changed it up so much is to fit the new layout when using the Gummi ship. Back in the previous games, they didn’t allow the Gummi ship to move around all that much and gave it only one set destination until you found multiple worlds to go to while blasting anything or anyone that got in your way.

Now, its more open world where you can either fly around and take out some heartless ships or go to wherever world you choose. Other than going to Hercules world; the story starts wherever you want it to. Thinking about the game overall, I would recommend this game for people who are into the series or beginner RPG players.

ArchyWorldys.comWhy I say beginner RPG players for this game, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!

I’ve played the Kingdom Hearts 3 game in standard mode thinking that I’ll have a tough time against higher level monsters and bosses like I did in the previous games. That was not the case for the latest game, if you want a real challenge in the game then I suggest going with the proud option because even though the settings say easy, standard or proud. It was really saying do you want super easy, easy or normal because I remember playing normal on the previous games and I was struggling even in the beginning, but in Kingdom Hearst 3 not so much. It was more like a come and enjoy the ride type of feel as I was playing.

Not that there is anything wrong with going on with an easy setting and enjoying the story and their awesome graphics. I truly love the story in this series and I truly hope this isn’t going to be the last one that they make, but who knows what happens in the future. This game has its ups and downs, but like with every Kingdom Hearts game I still enjoy it so much and I hope you will, too.

Thanks for Reading!

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn

Episode Ardyn CoverWelcome back, everyone. Today I’m going to be talking about the long-awaited, ‘Episode Ardyn’ dlc for the Final Fantasy 15 game. This dlc is the final character dlc for the game and it was released on March of 2019. This dlc was supposed to come out back in 2018, but the game developers decided to postpone its release for various for several reasons.

Obviously, this dlc revolves around Ardyn who we meet in the main game of Final Fantasy XV. This episode finally reveals to the long-awaited story of Ardyn’s past and how Ardyn becomes the frightening and cruel demon god that we all love and hate in the main game. I’m not going to spoil what happens in the dlc. If you want to know what happens then I suggest that you either play it or watch it.

If you would like to see what happens in Ardyn’s episode then click on the link down below.

UpWalkthroughPlaying this dlc was really easy whether you choose easy or normal difficulty. I think the reason behind it is because of Ardyn’s character. In the first battle in the game, he was really weak for obvious reasons but after that your pretty much invincible in combat. It makes a lot of sense when you think about it considering that your playing a demon god who can’t die no matter what you do to him.

With that being said, I can’t really say if having items available like potions, high potions, etc was really necessary only because it was really, really hard to die in the game. Also, Ardyn tends to drain his enemies of health while fighting if he happens to spot a weak point (like a vampire). If you used potions for anything it was just to make sure the enemy didn’t make that final blow when his HP hits zero.

I loved Ardyn’s back story a lot. I knew the moment I saw him; he was a super complex character and when the truth was revealed in the dlc I was not disappointed. After, I was done playing it I didn’t know if I should love him, hate him or pity him because this man gets the short end of the stick the entire time. Knowing his side of the story, could you really blame Ardyn for doing what he did?

That’s one of the big questions running through my mind and anyone else that’s played the game. As I’ve said before it’s almost impossible to die in this game so rpg players of any level can play this dlc with no problems. The in game graphics, storyline were on point and we meet some intriguing characters and you can really see how everything is connected to one another to the main game especially if you’ve already played the previous episodes already. Can’t wait to see what they bring to the table next. Until then, I’ll be patiently waiting and whether you decide to play it or watch it I hope you enjoy it was much as I have.

FINAL FANTASY 15: EPISODE ARDYN GAMEPLAY

 

We Happy Few

WTFGamersOnly.comTold you this my next post wasn’t far behind. Alrighty then, let’s get into the meat and potatoes now.

This time around I’ll be talking about one of the new games that’s come out recently called,” We Happy Few,” a action-adventure game that was developed by Compulsion Games and can be on your pc or console. I heard a little about this game and when I got to see the trailer I knew I had to see more.

we-happy-few.wikia.com/wikThis centers around Arthur who from the looks of things is responsible for helping his company control the news to the public. According to the story, the United Kingdom lost the war to the Germans in an alternate universe where the Americans didn’t join in the war as the United Kingdom’s allies. One of the demands that the Germans made when they won the war was from them to give up all of their children for whatever reason.

They had no choice but to obey so they sent every child under 13 on a train to Germany. One of those unfortunate kids ended up being Arthur’s younger brother, Percy. As time went by the citizens of the United Kingdom slowly grew insane with guilt for what they’ve done to save their own skin, so they let their government to order scientists to make a drug called, Joy. This drug does exactly what the name implies; it makes you so happy that its creepy. I wouldn’t be surprised if people under the drug suddenly broke a limb or witness someone die and wouldn’t care too much about it. Anyway, after this drug was made the government made it a law that everyone had to take this drug, NO EXCEPTIONS.

So, now everyone is super happy for no reason. What the government failed to mention to everyone is that in order for the drug to trick your mind that your happy is for it to erase your memories, so now no one remembers anything about anything. In the game Arthur mentions things they’ve forgotten like “No one remembers what they read” or “When do we start eating rats?”

Speaking of rats enjoy this reaction video of gamers reacting to one of the surprising and disgusting moments in the game down below:

Anyway, Arthur remembers his long-lost brother after all this time after seeing a picture of them together in a newspaper. He decides to stop taking his Joy and goes on an epic journey to leave the country in order to find his brother in Germany. Better said than done with this mission, no one can go out the country without the proper paperwork plus if someone in the game suspects you then your chases by an angry mob and if caught by the police they’ll shove Joy back down your throat.

As you play the game you start to notice lots of story based things going on in here. For example, the super elite higher ups aren’t on Joy and that some people who you encounter in the game on missions are only acting like their on Joy all the time in order to avoid punishment.

The gameplay is really good and has a bit of a BioShock feel to it. The storyline is really interesting and so are the characters that you encounter in the game. I’m not going to ruin what happens at the end, but for me I was kind of disappointed because it’s not the good ending that I wanted to see, I just expected more and it leaves more questions than answers for me, at least. Still doesn’t stop me from saying that this was a really good game and if you like action, adventure, survival or a game with an awesome storyline then this is the game I would consider trying out.

Ni No Kuni 2

G2A.comAlright everyone, this time I’m going to be talking about a game called,” Ni No Kuni 2″. This game was developed by Level-5  and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. I know that this is the second game in the series, but I’m only going to be talking about this one.

Its revolves around our two main characters Evan and Roland. Roland is the president in our modern world that gets teleported to another world after a disaster happens in his world and he almost dies. When he first appears he encounters, Evan, a human-cat hybrid that is next in line for the throne in the Ding Dong Dell kingdom. Trouble comes barreling their way when they realize that their being invaded and have to escape the palace before it too late.

After escaping the palace, Roland vows to stay in this world with Evan and help him build a new nation, where everyone can be happy. This is already a challenge in itself, but things get even more difficult when they meet Doloran who was a king to a forgotten nation over two thousand years ago. When they discover his plan to rip away other rulers kingsbonds from them in order to help him summon the Horned One, they realize that their racing against the clock.
PlaystationLifestyle.comFor those of you who don’t know a kingsbond is a bond that connects the ruler to not only their subjects, but their Kingmaker. A Kingmaker is pretty much like a god that acts like a guardian to the ruler; having a Kingmaker tells everyone around them that they are worthy enough to rule. That’s one of reasons why Evan can’t go strolling back to his Kingdom whenever he feels like it. Even if he were to take down the traitor Mausinger and all of his lackeys, he still wouldn’t be able to sit on the throne because he hasn’t gotten his Kingmaker yet.

He was supposed to get it during the crowning ceremony the same day that he met Roland and well……you can tell how well that played out for him.

Reddit.comSo, Evan goes to the Kings Cradle to get his own Kingmaker where he then meets Lofty. A squishy, yellow and spiked little thing, they were really disappointed and for good reason. Everyone else’s Kingmaker looks awesome and badass while his looks pathetic and weak looking.

Continuing on their journey they meet a lot of different characters along the way. Their all unique in their own way and bring something new to the table. I love all the problems and adventures they get into to if your into adventure or open world games. This game is also very generous when it comes to collecting items. Items are everywhere in the game, you can’t miss them.

What they make easy in collecting items and treasures they make harder when it comes to fighting monsters. You have to constantly be fighting to get a high enough level to beat any mini or big boss. Granted you don’t have to get the recommended level to beat the boss, but it’ll make the fight a lot easier on you if you did. You know the rule when you play against rpg bosses? Have 99 potions in stock so you can stay alive the entire time.

Sadly that rule does not apply in Ni No Kuni 2. They have it where no matter how potions/hi-potions or in this case soreaways you have in stock if you go into battle your only allowed to use ten of them. Sucks right? This makes fighting bosses a lot harder than it already is. Don’t worry it’s still very possible to kick boss ass even with this restriction.

I wouldn’t recommend this game to first time RPG players only because its different from the normal ones and could be a lot harder in some areas. I really loved the graphics in this game; it made me feel like I was playing inside a movie created by Hizo Miyazaki and Ghibli Studio. I hope that another game like this is already in woodwork for the future. This game was very enjoyable and fun to look at, I hope you all like it as much as I did playing it.

God of War Saga Continues

wowchannelz.comToday I’ll be ranting about the very popular action-adventure God of War game that came out this spring. It was developed by Santa Monica Studio and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

The story revolves not only around Kratos but his son, Atreus, as well. Their story starts with the game trying to pull at your heart-strings by showing the Krato’s new wife’s funeral. Sad, right?

I swear this man can’t have anybody without them dying on him for some strange reason. Speaking of strange reason, the game never reveals how she died. Was she sick? Did someone kill her? Was it some kind of freak accident? Or was it her time because this was dated back in the days where everyone didn’t have access to medicine, treatments and all that? I guess we’ll never know.

I have my own theory about why and how she died, but if I would to get into that I would have to spoil a couple of things for the people who haven’t played this game yet. It’s a big reveal about who she was which is why I’ve decided not to talk about it this time.

AminoApps.comMoving on with the father and son duo, so before she died she told them to spread her ashes at the top of the tallest mountain in all the realms. Set out to do just that the duo head on their first journey together towards the mountain. Now for anyone whose played a God of war game in the past knows that Kratos is a badass and can take care of himself, but now he has a child with him that has never left the forest and is about to see a lot of different things.

At first, Kratos tries to make this boy grow up fast because he really doesn’t know how to parent. He pretty much left that up to the wife almost the whole time, but as time goes by in the game you see them get closer and closer. It’s really heart warming to see the bond between father and son get stronger and stronger.

Some people who I’ve watched play the game get upset about his new fighting style because they were so used to one way that Kratos fights and that’s okay. Don’t worry guys, his fighting gets better. Trust me!

usapostclick.comAlso, I wanted to say that some people are basing off what they know about Norse mythology from Disney and Marvel movies. That is a NO NO! Let me explain, when certain people saw certain things happen with the Norse gods in the game they get confused about why this and that happened when in the Marvel movie it was totally different. You have to understand that the way the Marvel movies made the gods out to be isn’t the same as the real story behind it. They just picked and chose certain details that they thought would be interesting or better yet make them as close as the comics as possible. So, you have to read the actual lore in order to get some things that happened in this game. If you don’t want to that’s fine, too.

Glad to get that off my chest. I know I went a little off topic there but that’s okay. This game’s graphics and storyline go beyond its previous standards and if you’ve seen the ending then you already know that theirs another God of War game already in the woodwork for our enjoyment. Now, this is just my opinion but I think this next game will be its last and I’m just going off what I’ve seen in the game. If you like adventure, action, gore or fantasy then this game is for you! See you next time!

South Park: Whole But Fractured

sagamar.co.zaThis time I’ll be talking about another game that came out not too long ago and that is ” South Park: The Fractured but Whole” which was developed by Ubisoft. Now, I know that this is the sequel to the first game, “The Stick of Truth” so  I won’t be able to compare if they were some differences between the first and second game.

Both games are RPGs and revolve around the same set of characters, but in the second one the story continues where Stick of Truth left off. In this game, I am a new kid in town who previously was the king in the last game. But, now the medieval time game is over because Cartman discovered that a cat was missing and that his rival superhero gang the Freindship Pals have not only have looked into the matter already, but have become a lot more famous around town and knowing Cartman; he got jealous and changed the game to a superhero one.

TechnoBuffalo.comIn this game it’s mostly the usual in most RPGs. You start from the beginning as a level 1 and work your way up, do side missions to get special items and do the main missions to progress the story. This game is totally funny and the stuff that happens in it is really crazy. But that’s South Park for you.

You have a good variety of classes you can choose from and you can mix and match your abilities as you progress through the story. What I think would be cool is if your abilities and moves were decided by what kind of costume you choose to wear. The combos would have been massive. The only thing that was a little annoying was the fact that you couldn’t sprint which is why I think they put fast travel points all over the map.

I think it’s really funny is that the only reason we have superpowers is because we dress up as them. It would be really funny too if the entire town was in on it so they only pretended to be hurt from my awesome attacks. The things you see and do in this game makes you laugh your pants off with the situations they get in.

This is a really good game for people who want to pass the time or beat the second game because they beat the first. This would be a good game for first time RPG players too as long as they don’t mind the cussing and slight nudity that’s found in the game. This game is really enjoyable to play and makes me wonder if they will make another anytime soon. We can only wait and hope.

Evil Within 2: Secrets Revealed

GameDebate.comHello!

Today I’ll be talking about the new horror game ,”The Evil Within 2″ this time. Everyone has been waiting for this one for so long ever since the first one came out a couple of years back. To recap from the previous game detective Castellanos and his partners Kidman and Joseph got call about a disturbance at Beacon Mental Hospital. All three went to the hospital with the two of them not knowing what they were walking into. Notice how I say two and not three.

Anyway, Castellanos fights thru a lot of zombies and mutated monsters while trying to find his friends in that creepy, gory world he was suddenly thrown in. A lot of things happened in the last game, but in the end Ruvik the main villain escaped STEM to exact his revenge on the people who wronged him a long time ago.

Some people argue that he didn’t escape STEM because his brain was crushed at the end, but if you look at the last scene then it’s really implied that he escaped from the STEM system because over the Leslie’s mind and walked away. I really was hoping Ruvik would be in the second game, but that didn’t happen. But, then again  it probably wouldn’t make sense for him to be in this one because he did all that to get out of it.

WindowCentral.comAnyway back to the game, so in Evil Within 2 it turns out that the good detective quit his job because of a combination of what he saw in there, Kidman’s betrayal and wondering to this day if he’s still in STEM or not. Personally, I would think that was obvious because he’s not being chased by zombies and everything doesn’t look fucked up anymore but that’s just me. Since he quit, he’s been trying to find Kidman and get some answers until one day she comes to him with an offer for him help his only daughter Lily, who he thought died in a fire years ago.

Of course, he takes the job after learning Lily’s situation and dives back into the ‘new and improved’ STEM system. Not long after entering the new virtual world, he realizes that things have gone to shit in this quiet little town and he needs to find the source before everyone inside becomes a mindless zombie.

MasGamers.comSpoiler Alert Incoming!!!

I like this game because we get to have a closer look at Castellanos’s past before the Beacon Incident. In the previous game, it was only lightly brought up but I guess everyone was so curious about his backstory that they had to put in the forefront of the new game. So, many secrets are revealed in this game that it blows your mind. Some of them being that Joseph was still alive and that even though in the end Myra took over as the core and pretty much self destructed the STEM world and all the Mobius agents someone inside STEM was still alive and doing things. Who was it?

I don’t know and unless their planning on making an Evil Within 3 game, we may never know.

Also, I hoped Joseph would appear after they mentioned he was still alive but that didn’t happen either. But, I hear rumors that there is going to be a DLC about what happened to Joseph later on or maybe he might be in the third game if they decide to make another one.

This game was really good and had so many ways to play it. You want to be a ninja and so sneak kills? You can do that.

You want to blow up monsters in a blaze of glory? You can do that, too.

Are you a player who likes doing all the side quests first then the main story or vice versa? You can do either and no one would judge you for it.

I loved Castellanos’s attitude in this game. He didn’t take any shit from anybody and knew already that he was better off working alone than with anybody else unless he really had no choice in the matter. The only people that he didn’t give shit to was Hoffman and Torres and I think that’s because they made quite the impression on him during their first meeting.

This would be for seasoned gamers that like horror games and aren’t afraid to get scared at any moment. The storyline was very interesting and there are many ways to play it then just killing everything in sight. (You’ll do that anyway but still….) The options are out there. Hope you all enjoy this thrilling horror game as much as I did and I’ll see you guys next time!

Try New Things

Hello everyone! Today I’m not going to be talking about a video game or an anime this time. I know shocker, right?

I’ll talking a little about myself today. I know you guys don’t know this, but I like trying out new things whether its painting, reading a new book, going somewhere I never went before, etc. I like doing that because who knows maybe I’ll like it and keep doing it and if I don’t like it; now I know and will now avoid it like the plague.

Plus I like doing new things because it makes life interesting and its something to do for me, at least. Sometimes, it takes a push for me to go out and do the things I want to go out and experience things. Sometimes, it takes a person and sometimes it takes my own self-motivation to get myself in gear.

For this it was a bit of a combination of both. After, wanting to do it for so long, but kept procrastinating about it and making excusing why I couldn’t do and pushing it more and more back. It took my friends and my own self to convince myself that I can do it and if I don’t like it, then I tried and can keep living without any regrets.

So, without further ado I started my own streaming channel on Twitch. Yyyyyyeeeaaaahhhhh bring out the pom poms and confetti!!! 

It’s a live streaming channel where you guys will get to see me and hopefully not fail miserably at playing these games. After, my first live stream I was still on the fence about doing it again, but after thinking it over I decided to try again. The second stream went a lot smoother and I wasn’t as nervous as I was before. So, I decided to continue streaming and see where it goes from here on out.

Also, I’m just letting you all know that just because I’m doing this doesn’t mean that I’ll stop blogging. I love blogging and that will never end until I die. People who read my stuff regularly know that by now I sometimes go off the grid here and there, but I always come back.

I want to thank my friends who constantly motivated me into doing this and the Youtubers and Twitch streamers who make awesome stuff everyday that has become an inspiration for me. Even if you don’t care for live streams I’ll put them up on Youtube later for you guys to watch them whenever you want.

The schedule isn’t really set in stone yet for this but for now its Friday 7-9 PM and Sat-Sun is 3-5 PM. I hope you guys enjoy the show!
