Code Vein Review

Bandai Namco returns with another title heavily influenced by the hugely successful Dark Souls formula: the dark and gritty Code Vein. Offering a more direct narrative, a post-apocalyptic dystopian world, and a story heavily influenced by vampiric lore, does it stand up to the high expectations of the genre?

Code Vein Review

The game takes place in a secluded land called Vein. Following a great calamity, vampire-like survivors called Revenants fight over the continuously diminishing supplies of blood, with the ever increasing risk of losing control and entering a mindless, savage-like state known as The Lost. Losing all memories, Revenants often resort to harvesting blood from the last remaining surviving humans. However, a small pocket of resistance hopes to restore balance to this bleak and dark existence.

The game wears its Souls-like inspiration on its sleeve, with almost identical mechanics and features standing proud. However, that’s not to say it doesn’t make moves to improve on this tried and tested formula. If there’s one particular area where Code Vein stands alone in the Souls-like space, it’s the dominating stance the game takes on telling its narrative.

Code Vein tackles the challenge of directing an intriguing tale on two main fronts. Traditional cutscenes and lengthy dialogue progresses an overarching story, while small memory sequences allow for greater depth and understanding of the protagonist and their allies. Much of the story is hidden behind collectibles and limited events, each offering an opportunity to dive into a web of intricate design. It plunges players into a dark story of death, loss, and despair, with the protagonists the only beam of light in an otherwise blackened sky.

It does suffer from some pacing problems from time to time, with 10-15 minute cutscenes and dialogue breaking up an otherwise action-packed experience. If it wasn’t for the quality and dark-natured design of the story, it would have been a challenge to not skip the majority of the cutscenes just to get back into the meat of the game.

Code Vein Review

Before we dive into the meat of the game, it’s fitting to first take a moment to appreciate the incredible character creation on tap. In a genre that traditionally offers very little character choice at the beginning of the experience, Code Vein explodes out of the gates with a hugely in-depth character customization suite, allowing players to change and manipulate practically every area of a character’s being. While it’s not quite as deep as some of the more popular MMORPGs of today, it’s clearly paving the way for new heights in the Souls-like genre.

Continuing its efforts to reinvent some of the genres more stagnating elements, Code Vein features a full-flavored banquet of character progression and customization with a class system that quickly became my favorite in recent memory. Blood Codes, the name given to an individual class, represent a characters list of available abilities and potential stat use and growth. Switching this up is as simple as navigating a menu and making a new selection, but it’s the combination of unlocking these Blood Codes and the nature of the progression coming together that makes it such a feast.

Each Blood Code has a group of abilities, some that favor specific weapons or builds, others more generic, each …

Freespace 2 is free for a limited time

Even if you have not been playing videogames for a while, if you are a fan of space combat simulators it’s quite likely that you have heard about Freespace 2, one of the games with more awards in the genre. This sci-fi adventure developed by Volition, creators of other great titles like Saint’s Row and Red Faction, has been delighting the fans of intergalactic exploration for the last twenty years and now you have the opportunity of getting it for free thanks to GOG.

Freespace 2 – Gameplay

Freespace 2 is the sequel to Descent: Freespace. It’s an adventure that will take us to space in the year 2367. While Terrans and Vasudan are recovering from their loses during the recent Great War, the appearance of a new alien race is threatening the fragile peace in the galaxy. You will take the role of a pilot that will fight against this race of mysterious aliens, the Shivans. To make things even more complicated, there are a couple of groups on your side that are against cooperating with the Vasudan and you will also have to deal with those.

The game is considered to be one of the best space simulators ever created. Although its interpretation of physics is not realistic and follows a dynamic flight model, Freespace 2 still delivers rewarding gameplay where the combat between starfighters is fast-paced and full of action. If you add to that a deep and compelling story along with plenty of well-designed missions to complete, the result is a game that will surprise you in the very best way.

Freespace 2 – Ship customization

Freespace 2 comes with an editor that will allow you to design your own missions and expand the game however you please. It also features cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes that can be played local and online.

To get your free copy of Freespace 2, all you have to do is visiting GOG.com and claiming it before the promotion ends tomorrow.

The release date of The Last of Us 2 has finally been revealed

The first installment of The Last of Us was a real success both commercial and critical. Released in 2013, the game has indeed managed to achieve a record number of sales for a game developed by a Playstation studio. No wonder The Last of Us Part II is eagerly awaited by the fans today. The first rumors about a possible sequel started in 2015, thanks to Nolan North who played the role of David in the first game. Naugthy Dog formalized announcement of the development of The Last of Us Part II at the Playstation Experience event in 2016.

The Last of Us Part II

Three long years have passed since then, and only three videos have been revealed so far showing us images of the game, including a gameplay one at E3 2018. Fans will surely be pleased to hear that a new trailer showing both cinematic scenes and gameplay footage, was unveiled last night at the State of Play. And the end of this trailer reserves us a very significant surprise; The Last of Us Part II finally has a release date: February 21, 2020.

In this new game, revenge seems to be the main theme. Ellie is now about 19 years old, and she appears to be looking for Dina. Although the video does not show it clearly, she seems to have been murdered. We imagine that it is this tragic event that will push Ellie in her quest for revenge. This video is also an opportunity to confirm the presence of Joel. In the trailer, he seems to surprise Ellie, which suggests that the two protagonists are not as close as before. We note that Tommy, Joel’s brother will also be present in the game.

Now that the release date of The Last of Us Part II has been revealed, it is very likely that we gradually have more and more information about the game.

The Last of Us Part II will be released on February 21, 2020, exclusively on PlaySation 4. To get it at the best price, do not hesitate to visit our comparator.

A new trailer reveals the story of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

The State of Play that was held yesterday by Sony served as a platform to announce a variety of news regarding the games published by the company, and the upcoming installment in the Call of Duty series is too relevant to be left out. We could see the reveal of a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare cinematic trailer that introduces the campaign of the game, a story that will put Captain John Price in the spotlight once more, as he joins forces with the CIA to put a stop to the global distribution of chemical weapons.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be more focused on delivering a real and modern combat experience based on modern conflicts, moving away from zombies and futuristic technology. The events behind the combat, its causes and consequences will be an important point in the game, making us question ourselves about the morality of our actions. This has been commented by Infinity Ward studio narrative director Taylor Kurosaki, who in a post on the official blog writes:

“At its core, the story of Modern Warfare is about how the complexities of modern conflict take a toll on everyone involved. In many ways, we are in a world where there are not always simply ‘good guys’ or ‘bad guys’; there is no black or white. Rather, reality is typically the grey area in the middle. So how does one achieve their version of the ‘greater good’ while navigating this complex world? How far are you willing to go to discern between ‘right’ and ‘wrong?’ Are you willing to cross certain barriers to defeat an enemy who has no battle lines drawn?”

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Even though first-person shooters tend to focus mainly on the gameplay experience, especially regarding combat, weapons, vehicles, and such things, it’s interesting to see that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is deeper than that, trying to deliver a solid story that serves as the foundation of a shooter that goes beyond competitive multiplayer gameplay.

MediEvil demo is available now

The remake of one of the most famous PlayStation classic titles is on the way and the fans of MediEvil have now a great opportunity of reliving Sir Dan’s adventures for a short time for free. During yesterday’s State of Play, one of the announcements that were made is that MediEvil Short-Lived Demo is available on PlayStation Store. It will allow you to give a try to the new version of the cult hack-and-slash game for free on PlayStation 4 until October 6th.

MediEvil will take you back to Gallowmere to fight against the evil sorcerer Zarok. A hundred years ago he tried to conquer the kingdom with an undead army, and now he is back to raise another undead army from the remains buried after the old battle. That will prove to be a big mistake because among those remains there is the corpse of Sir Daniel Fortesque, one of the knights that fought against him. In his new life as undead, Sir Dan will see a great opportunity to become the hero that he couldn’t be before, saving Gallowmere from Zarok and his army of undead servants.

The new MediEvil is a new version rebuilt from the ground up, and it features enhanced graphics in 4k that will delight the fans of the series. The demo will let you explore Gallowmere’s graveyard, and you can even earn a reward with it. If you download and play MediEvil Short-Lived Demo, you will be able to get Sir Dan’s Helmet, a piece of equipment that will allow you to unlock a special challenge on the full game once it’s released.

MediEvil – Sir Daniel Fortesque

MediEvil will be released later in the same month exclusively on PlayStation 4, (on October 25, to be precise). You will be able to find the best price to buy it through our comparator.
