Best of 2014: The Late Late Review
I am uploading some video to Upload Studio and my upload speed is a measly 0.6Mbits/sec, so here is an excuse to post something.
so, cool shit from 2014:
Game of the year: Sunset Overdrive. honestly the most fun i've ever had playing a video game, with an awesome soundtrack. your millage may vary on the humour, but i was amused. Insomniac Games is officially forgiven for Fuse.
Best soundtrack: Sunset Overdrive. the songs are mostly written for the game, with a few licensed songs (probably best use of a Melvins song in a video game... though it also may be the only use of a Melvins song in a video game at that). mostly smaller known bands were brought in, The Bronx being the only band i knew before (i saw them open for Bad Religion in 2013), but BOATS!, Bass Drum of Death and Brenna Red's bands (Fiction Reform and The Last Gang
) are definitely worth checking out.
Best Multiplayer: Sunset Overdrive's Chaos Squad. Dragon Age's is fun, but the severs are fucking shit, and i do enjoy Advanced Warfare, and Destiny's was alright, but this is the one that's kept me coming back.
Biggest Surprise: Wolfenstein: The New Order. the story was pretty solid, had some good replayability and gameplay as tight as fuck. glad they ditched multiplayer and focused on a great single-player experience.
Best DLC: Not a whole lot sprang out at me but InFamous: First Light was really good. Mooil Rig for Sunset Overdrive was alright.
Game With Too Much Damn Content: Dragon Age: Inquisition. okay, i never complain about games being too long, but this installment was just too damn much it was overwhelming. my first playthrough clocked in at 120 hours due to the amount of side quest content. you have to gain Power to unlock more missions, even plot missions, so much of it isn't optional, and i like to do a full playthrough on the first few goes. it's still a great game and a must-play for fantasy RPG fans. oh, and there's boobs this time. i wonder when Fox New...
