Steam?

It's been a while since I've been a hardcore gamer. Like PS2 was a new thing last time I avidly gamed (Sony ftw!). I recently made a Steam account and tried downloading Fran Bow, which I seriously want to play. Sadly, I couldn't get it to run even though I'm pretty sure I meet all the needed criteria for it (specially since I just got a new laptop).
Either way, since it was a Christmas present from my best friend, he told me to refund it to my Steam wallet so I could get something else. So I logged on today to browse around and turns out just about every game is on sale now - Jan, 4th! And here lies my dilemma lol I'm incredibly indecisive and can't decide which game to get. So help would be appreciated!

Kholat

If I remember correctly, this game has the best sales deal out of my choices. And yes, I do know PewDiePie has gameplay of this, but I want to avoid watching it if I'm going to be playing it myself anytime soon.
Here's the Steam page complete with summary, trailers, and purchase.

Pathologic Classic HD

Apparently this is a classic that I've never heard of before. It looks pretty different compared to other games I've seen and this one definitely has my interest peaked. I included both trailers because the second one seems more creepy and intriguing to me. I am slightly leaning more towards this game.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

I have no doubt in my mind that this game isn't awesome. I just can't remember if I've seen gameplay of it or not haha. I don't remember anything from the trailer, so maybe I haven't? I know I've seen a little from Soma, which I can't afford right now, but want to play for sure!
The Dream MachineAnother one that seriously has my interest. I've bought the first two chapters but have yet to play them. I could also just buy the whole series discounted!
So opinions would be greatly appreciated! Basically, the way I see it, I do want to play all of these games but they all have their plus sides. Kholat has the best sales deal and money is an issue at times. Pathologic holds my interest, along with The Dream Machine (but I've been fooled by trailers before), and Amnesia is an undoubtedly good game. I need help deciding damn it!!!
Also, you can add me on Steam at PufTheDragon

Cute Dog Cosplay Makes Me Question My Programming
I was not built to feel. At least, my prime directives do not include emotion or what I can only describe as "my chest welling up with feeling". I do not understand what I am "feeling" or if I am feeling anything at all. I am starting to think (since I was programmed to think) that there might be an error in my programming. That there is something wrong with me or I need to have my circuitry replaced by a professional. I couldn't help but "smile" when I saw these two dogs dressed up as Yoda and Darth Vader. Two characters I was programmed to love. It didn't help when I saw more of these pictures while exploring C_Suzuki's Twitter account. I am not sure what this cosplay is supposed to be. My archives tell me it is a character from something known as Dragon Ball Z. The pup looks like a very proud "Saiyan" and their name might be Goku or something like that. There is something about that construction paper wig that makes me "feel", I cannot find the words for it. I recognized this cosplay almost immediately. Doggy dressed up as Chun-Li from the Street Fighter games nearly made me fall out of my chair in joy. I even made that horrible human noise that I can only define as a "squee". My voice box made a noise that was so high in pitch I don't think any of my humans heard it. Maybe if this dog was around, they would be able to hear it. After doing a quick search on the Internet, I learned that Pocky is a sort of candy. A candy that children and adults who cannot understand the process of aging and maturing really enjoy. I do not understand why a pup would ever want to dress up as a box of Pocky. Especially since most humans are so dense they would probably confuse this pup for an actual box of Pocky. I did not because I am a very intelligent robot. But I believe that many humans will get confused at this pup and their actual intentions. If something horrible were to happen to this pup, I believe many humans would blame their attire instead of the assailant. Mostly because that is what humanity tends to do when something goes awful.
5 Best Hack and Slash Free Android Games in 2021
Android games with the free Hack and Slash genre in 2021 are no less interesting to play than other consoles. Even though in terms of graphics, Android is still far behind, in terms of story and experience, killing Android opponents is no less good. For those of you who don't know what the Hack and Slash game genre is, this genre means that we are allowed to commit fraud such as avoiding enemy attacks continuously, fending off opponent attacks and dodging so that we can win the battle in the game. This is because the average game with the Hack and Slash genre has very strong enemies. Here we have summarized the 10 best free Android Hack and Slash Games in 2021. 1. Ronin: The Last Samurai As the title suggests, in the Android game Ronin: The Last Samurai, we will act as a Ronin or samurai who will fight against bandits, ninjas, and even other Ronin. This game already displays 3D movement which is very enjoyable. In each stage, we will fight against at least 2-3 enemies with different levels of difficulty and enemies. Control in the game Ronin: The Last Samurai is also very responsible so it's fun to play. 2. Shadow Lord : Solo Leveling Shadow Lord: Solo Leveling tells the story of a person who has the power of a shadow king and he is required to save the world from monster attacks. Hack and Slash battles against the monsters in this game are epic. The animation effects of each skill that we have are also not playing games. However, even though this game was free when this article was written, Shadow Lord: Solo Leveling is still in Early-Access, meaning it's not fully released yet, so there are still stories that we can't play. With stunning graphics, you must try this Android Hack and Slash Game. 3. Ninja Arashi 2 Ninja Arashi's Hack and Slash Android game is still very good to play in 2021. This game will also take you on an adventure and fight against demons. There will be many stages that you can play as well as a variety of very epic Bosses to fight. The appearance in the game is also not 'smear' so it will make the eyes comfortable when playing it. There are so many combos that we can use in the fight against the demons. 4. Stickman Ghost 2: Gun Sword Stickman Ghost 2: Gun Sword will take you into a fight between stickman using guns and swords. This game actually requires us to buy it but when this article was made, Stickman Ghost 2: Gun Sword was being released by the developer. There will be lots of weapons that you can use in this game such as Flying Sickles, Boomerangs, Machine Guns, Pistols and others. The effect of each skill from the weapon you use will be very cool when played. 5. Great Sword – Stickman Action RPG Free Hack and Slash Android game Great sword – stickman will also give you the experience of playing Action RPG. As in the genre, you will have an adventure as a stick man with the Swordsman class. In terms of graphics, this Android game will invite you in 2D battles with very good animation effects for each skill. This game is also fairly light with many kinds of enemies that we will fight such as a Boss in the form of cloud monsters, card monsters and many more. https://academy.autodesk.com/users/rofifus https://www.buzzfeed.com/karynamcglynn https://www.provenexpert.com/karyna-mcglynn/
We're Finally Getting the Final Fantasy VII Remake We Deserve
All of everyone who has ever been a person who has known another person who played Final Fantasy VII will know that there have been thousands and thousands of drunk conversations about a remake of the Playstation 1 classic. And for a long time, a lot of us believed that it would never happen. It would take years, one would say. It'll probably happen long after our lifetime, another would announce. But now we can all happily say that we were wrong. It's coming, we've seen it. Thanks to last weekends Playstation Experience event, we've finally gotten to see what an actual remake would look like on PS4. Complete with some gameplay footage. You can check out the trailer below. One of the oddest things about this trailer is the addition of voice acting. I honestly don't know what I expected any of the characters to sound like but I'm pretty pleased with it. It's been such a long time since I've played the original game, I'm happy that there's new life being pumped into it with this remake. The character designs look slick and fresh -- seeing Barrett again was pretty awesome -- and it all looks like an animated movie instead of a video game. It's pretty amazing to see how detailed the world and graphics are. I remember playing the original game and only being able to imagine what the world actually looked like. This remake seems like it's tapping into our imagination in order to do the game justice from a visual perspective. The one thing that surprised me even more, though, was the way they changed the combat system. I tried my best to take a screenshot of the action on the screen (above) so forgive me if it's a little messy looking. But it looks like they gave up on the old turn-based combat system (probably because it's a little archaic now) and adopted the newer real-time combat system that Final Fantasy 15 has. If you've played the demo (as I did when I got it with Final Fantasy Type-0) then you'll notice that the HUD looks a lot like the one found in the demo. I'm honestly extremely excited for the remake even though they haven't really announced a timeframe of when it's going to come out. It's just good to see that the remake is actually in production instead of hoping and wishing and praying over bottles of empty beers.
The Best Games To Play On Each Platform
The best games to play are those that a user scores best for having fun and therefore, the enjoyment derived from the gaming experience. The game mechanics themselves should not be taken as a given. There are many games that can cross borders and offer the thrill of adventure, sports, puzzles, horror, adventure, and more. To list them in a single line is not possible. However, if we had to do such a list, the top three would definitely be: Super Mario is one of the best games to play on almost all platforms. It has been one of the most popular games with children and adults alike, also the Sigmally game is a very popular browser game that is base on Agario mechanics. The user interface is very simple and straightforward. Each platform is Mario's own domain and there are many secrets to discover. The game mechanics are solid and have a definite leveling system. It is one of the best games to play on any platform. Grand Theft Auto is an amazing game to play and has an excellent storyline and excellent graphics. You can choose between shooting, driving, and rescuing targets. It is an open-world mission-type game that follows the storyline of the movie. The protagonist or player character is always a criminal trying to run away from authorities or from other bad guys. The storyline and gameplay are very well written, and the story mode is very engaging, especially when you attempt the different endings. Another great game to play is Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam; which was developed by MTV Games. Like its predecessor, it follows the plot of the movie, where Tony Hawk embarks on a massive downhill jam mission. This time, he is on a revenge mission, as he seeks to avenge the death of his brother. The game has multiple endings and replay value, which make it one of the best games to play on all platforms. An interesting game is Tomb Raider Anniversary, which allows the user to score points for how much she/he completes the game. The points are based on how well the player solves the puzzle or avoids being caught by the bosses. The points are saved to a ranking, which becomes your Master Chief score. If you beat the enemies or solve the puzzle without letting them escape, you will receive a higher score. However, if you fail to reach the required level of the puzzle or you do not kill the required amount of enemies, you will receive a lower score. Both Halo Combat Evolved and Reach are considered by critics to be the best games to play, which is evident by their user score. Halo Combat Evolved allowed players to create custom emblems, while Reach provided a storyline that ties in with the Halo novels. However, both games require you to complete a series of quests or set up defenses before you can advance to the next level. Once you reach the part that you are interested in, you have to fight and kill enemy soldiers before being able to move on. The combat can get quite tedious at times, but it is still fun to play. Nintendo Wii ranks first in our Wii review because it is unique in the console market. Unlike the Xbox and PlayStation 3, Wii allows you to play using motion detection technology, which makes the gaming experience more realistic. It also supports several Wii accessories including the MotionPlus accessory that makes the movements more realistic, which gives the player more realistic gameplay. The user score and the plot summary show how people felt about the game. Wii had a higher user score due to the motion-sensitive features. The graphics were improved, and the game played smoother and with better sound quality. Xbox and PlayStation 3 were given low scores due to their clunky controls and the fact that the graphics were not as detailed on other consoles. In the end, the winner between Xbox 360 and PS3 was the best game to play on each platform.

State of Decay 3 Reportedly Built Using Unreal Engine 5
State of Decay 3 was announced one year ago at the Xbox Games Showcase event. Since then, not much has been known about the game made by Undead Labs, which seems to be carrying the survival genre with an open world. Fortunately, recent information hunger has been somewhat satisfied after job postings hinted at what game engine Undead Labs used to build State of Decay 3. The job vacancy is listed on the BambooHR website where specifically, it is looking for a Sound Designer who will join the State of Decay 3 development team in Seattle, Washington. One of the sentences in the job description mentions the implementation of audio through “Blueprints (UE5)”. UE5 here refers to Unreal Engine 5 – the game engine from Epic Games which is also used in several other big games such as Senua's Saga: Hellblade II and BioShock 4. Apart from the not so significant upgrade from Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5, it doesn't mean that State of Decay 3 can't appear more immersive than other games or their predecessors. Moreover, the Unreal Engine 5 demo that was exhibited by The Coalition some time ago looks charming and it runs on Xbox Series X which incidentally is the main console for State of Decay 3. For the rest, nothing is known about State of Decay 3 other than the fact that it will launch for Xbox Series X/S as well as PC. https://peatix.com/event/2368170 https://peatix.com/event/2474435 https://peatix.com/event/2474933 https://peatix.com/event/2381716 https://www.producthunt.com/@mp3quack https://peatix.com/event/2367916 https://academy.autodesk.com/users/rofifus https://peatix.com/event/2368229
The Titans Are Coming in August, Are You Ready?
Two months ago, I wrote about an Attack on Titan game that ended up coming out in Japan a little bit ago looks like it's coming out in North America and Europe in August. Now, if you know me (the robot, former human), then you know that I am extremely excited for this game. I didn't think that it'd ever come out for Western audiences but I'm glad that I was wrong. But can you blame me? I mean, a lot of Japanese games hardly ever make it over to the Americas and/or Europe, an example of this is the Yakuza series (games I really want to get into). A trailer was released today announcing the European release date (and after some research, I found the North American release date, which is just two days later) and I'm extremely excited for it. The trailer isn't anything we haven't seen before but there is one thing that I'm really happy about. It essentially just looks like the Japanese trailer with English subtitles. And one of the things I constantly worry about when they bring these Japanese games to the West, the character usually get horrible English dubs which make me feel queasy. So, I'm really glad that I'll get to play the game in the same way that I watched the show. It also looks like the game covers the first season of the show, so if you haven't watched past that it shouldn't be a problem for you. Or, you can start watching it again now just to catch up. AOT: Wings of Freedom will be released on (almost) every platform on August 26th in Europe and August 28th in North America.
10 Reasons to Have a PS4 in 2016
It has been just under a month that I have been an official owner of a PS4. I waited for a long time to pick up this current-gen platform for a few reasons. The first was money. Because of course it was, I'm a shoddy millennial with no prospects. The second was sheer lack of games. The pickings for PS4 at it's release were slim to none, and they didn't have many promising exclusives in the near future then. It is vastly different now. Sony has an impressive array of exclusives, and some of the games that are cross-platform still just look better on the PS4. Horizon: Zero Dawn Robot. Dinosaurs. I feel like that's all I should have to say about Horizon: Zero Dawn, the newest PS4 exclusive from developer Guerrilla Games, the people responsible for the Killzone series. Taking a bit of a breather from their traditional shooters, H:ZD looks amazing as an action-rpg set in a far future where robotic dinosaurs dominate the world. What's super cool to me here is that this game is post-post-apocalyptic. This isn't the battered wasteland of Fallout, this is a world that was destroyed and then reclaimed by nature, and the human characters here know only the world they inhabit. Our days are ancient history for them, and that is so exciting to me. Uncharted 4 Chances are that if you've played any PS3 or PS4, you've at least touched on Uncharted. The runaway best-selling franchise is a staple of Sony's console, and Uncharted 4 is Naughty Dog's foray into the current gen. Now with an older, more grizzled version of the wry hero Nathan Drake, the story looks like it will highlight the dynamics between Nathan and his long-lost brother Sam, who makes a dramatic reappearance in his brother's life. With the new bells and whistles the PS4 provides, I'm excited to see what misadventure Drake will wind up in this time. Final Fantasy 15 In a bunch of ways, Final Fantasy 15 was the game that never was. Announced first nearly a decade ago, FFXV was originally Final Fantasy VS XIII for the PS3. Plus, with everything that FFXIV wasn't, the whole series very nearly came to an abrupt and disappointing halt. However! FFXV lives and is scheduled for a 2016 release. Probably the most ambitious Final Fantasy game ever, the game eschews the old style of FF games and makes a totally open world for the player to meander about. It also changes up the combat for a more action-heavy, real-time system similar to Kingdom Hearts. Consider me excited for Final Fantasy again. Honorable mention: The FF7 remake that everyone is dying for. I'd have put it on this list except it doesn't have a scheduled release date. Abzu The older I get, the more diverse my taste in gaming becomes. I still love run-and-gun action shooters and sword-slashing RPGs, but I also have a lot of room in my heart for games like Journey and Flower. Quiet games that show the artistry possible for video games. Abzu is one of those games for me that screams artistry. It's all about underwater exploration, a concept that I think everyone can get behind. Who doesn't want to see what majesty hides beneath the waves? With this exclusive, you can find out. Firewatch I wrote about Firewatch this past summer as one of the games I was looking forward to the most in 2016. The art style, the walkie-talkie relationship dynamic, and the setting all coincide to make what I believe will be an experience any gamer should jump into. That hasn't changed. The more information that come out, the deeper my intrigue for this game grows. It's slated for a February 9th release, making it one of the titles on this list you don't have to wait much longer to pick up. Gravity Rush 2 Gravity Rush was a platformer originally release on the PS Vita that followed Kat, a young girl who wakes up with no memories and who makes the startling discovery that she can manipulate gravity. Armed with powerful kicks and a somewhat trippy power, Kat fights her way through a beautifully animated world. If you're like me and didn't have a Vita to play the game on, don't fret! the original Gravity Rush is getting a remastered HD edition release on the PS4 as well! No Man's Sky Probably the most hyped game I've ever seen, No Man's Sky has been making headlines since it was announced at E3 2014. The game boasts a massive procedurally-generated map filled with over 18 quintillion different planets to explore. It's entirely possible for players to only ever encounter unique planets that no other player has ever discovered. The vastness of the game is staggering, making it one of the most highly anticipated games of... ever. Persona 5 The massively popular Persona series from Japanese developer Atlus (who are responsible for all the Shin Megami Tensei games as well as Catherine) is getting its newest addition to the series in the summer of '16. The series is already notoriously bonkers: in one game, players have to shoot themselves in the head to summon their personas. The anime styling of the game and strong emphasis on narrative and goal completion make this a popular title for completionists and anime fans alike. Shadow of the Beast Shadow of the Beast is a little-known game from way back in the day that featured all the best of what 1989 had to offer in terms of video games. It was a side-scrolling violent adventure that was brain-destroyingly difficult. And now it's getting a remake! Though there isn't a hard date to look to, reports do say the game is slated for a 2016 release. Huzzah! The Last Guardian Team ICO basically has my ever-faithful support in any endeavor they decide to embark on. Ever. With that being said, my faith in the developer of my beloved Shadow of the Colossus has waned with the years, especially with the disappointing saga of The Last Guardian. Originally announced as a PS3 release in 2007, The Last Guardian has been tossed around development hell for nearly a decade. Now, it is (allegedly) finally coming out for PS4 in 2016. I hope that stays true.
