The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon Review

After a little under a year, The Outer Worlds releases its first DLC: Peril on Gorgon. Is it worth the fifteen dollar entry fee, or should you pass on this trip?

The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon Review

Peril on Gorgon begins with you traveling on your ship to a new area. A delivery service hails you in space, and a package is dropped onto your ship. You open up the box, and there is a served arm with a message referring to a place called Gorgon. When you arrive, you meet with Wilhelmina Ambrose, who says she has a job for you. Gorgon was hers to inherit when her mother passed, but things have gotten a little complicated. What follows is a roughly six to eight hour adventure dealing with the area.

Peril on Gorgon honest game review

The problem Wilhelmina is having is that there was a new drug being produced on Gorgon. This drug turned 90% of the population into what are called Marauders. You can think of them as more potent versions of bandits and raiders. They have lost all sense of reason, and getting the formula for the drug has been complicated. As you explore Gorgon and read logs and terminals, you realize not all is as it seems. The deeper you dive, the more interesting it gets. In the end, you choose what to do with the Gorgon drug.

Combat hasn’t changed all that much from the base game. I will say I think they got a little lazy with the ranged weapons; I got a new laser rifle, which was just a MK3 instead of a MK2. There is some new armor and melee weapons though, and a few upgraded mods as well. The same can be said about the enemies. Most of them are just new color schemes, bigger versions, or more armored versions of previous enemies. It all works, but it is something I noticed pretty quickly.

While Gorgon is a pretty big place, there isn’t a ton of side content. There are some journals to collect and a few side quests to do, but it dries up fast. You are even sent to an old area once to complete a quest. The one thing that does stand out is its choices. It does feel like most of the options can help or hurt you in one way or another. Getting that extra keycard from the doctor will get you into his workroom. Alternatively, you can make him made and have to fight off the robots protecting his office. Both options are viable; it just comes down to how you want to handle the situation.

Peril On Gorgon Honest Review

One big thing to note is that you can’t start this DLC until a later point in the story. New saves will have players working their way to Gorgon. The more significant issue is if you only save is at the point of no return. I had multiple saves, but my end game save couldn’t leave the spot I was at. Beating the game only brought me back to the main menu. Basically, I couldn’t access the DLC on that save file. That means if you only have one save and you are at the point of no return, you won’t be …

No More Heroes III Delayed to 2021


A new Twitter post by Director Goici “Suda51” Suda yesterday stated that the release of Grasshopper Manufacture’s No More Heroes III has been delayed to 2021.

Suda mentions that 2020 has been a really rough period for a number of people, and that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have “proven to be a real body blow” to their schedule. This caused unforeseen delays in development, and that the development team has finally been able to get back on their feet. They are now focused on prioritizing quality, which is why the release date needed to be moved.

Suda also mentioned that Darick Robertson (The Boys) will lend his talents, serving as an illustrator for the title. Key art from him will be released at a later date.

You can find the Tweet below:

The fourth entry in the series, No More Heroes III follows Travis Touchdown once again as he returns to Santa Destroy. While there, he must fight against an alien invasion led by a galactic overlord prince.

In addition to Robertson serving as an illustrator, Nobuaki Kaneko (Rize) will write and compose the soundtrack. The band Red Orca was formed in alignment with this title, with their single “Orca Force” now available.

The game will come out for the Nintendo Switch.

Xbox Series X Finally Has a Release Date and Price Point

Story 420284811

After years of rumors and fierce speculation, Microsoft has finally revealed the release date for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on Twitter. This comes right off the heels of yesterday’s announcement of the Xbox Series S and its price point of $299. Both consoles will launch simultaneously on November 10, 2020, with several purchase options for consumers.

 

Xbox Series X Price

Xbox Series X

Microsoft has priced the Xbox Series X at $499 as the final retail price. The pricing is what has been expected, but there is also a financing option available through their Xbox All Access program. If you pick Xbox Series X, you will also receive 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play Membership for $34.99 a month for 24 months. A similar option is available for the Xbox Series S, including both the Xbox and EA memberships, and is priced at $24.99 for 24 months. Pre-orders for the next-gen Xbox consoles will go up on September 22 and will surely sell out fast; a specific time hasn’t been announced, so keep an eye out for news on that.

Both memberships include access to games on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, and even mobile devices. These financing options should bring in additional consumers who might be put off by the upfront costs of a new console. Microsoft seems to be banking on Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as the core factor in their Xbox brand’s success this generation.

Sony has yet to announce the release date or price point of their PlayStation 5, but we should be hearing about both really soon, especially after Microsoft’s sudden reveal.

What do you think about the pricing for Microsoft’s next-gen consoles? Will you be picking up either console or will you wait it out until Sony announces the PS5’s price? Sound off in the comments and keep it locked on to Sick Critic for the latest gaming news, reviews, and features.

Turn-Based RPG Black Legend Announced


Players will be able to master the art of alchemy and old-school strategy with the release of Warcave’s turn-based RPG Black Legend.

Black Legend is inspired by stories and folklore that dates back to 17th-century Belgium and the Netherlands. Folklore creatures that will make their appearance include nekkers, Witte Wieven, Halewijn, and Old Red Eyes. Combining XCom-esque combat with open world exploration, players will lead a band of mercenaries through Grant, a cursed metropolis that pays host to a fog that can inflict madness on anybody that crosses its path.

The great alchemist Mephisto has taken control of the city, and has a cult of devout followers and fanatics at his beck and call. To battle these foes and come out on top, players will be able to utilize alchemy (which can injure, poison, and debilitate), steel, and close-quarter tactics. Ability combos, unit placement, and well-chosen attacks serve as the key elements to your victory.

As players spend more time in Grant, they can piece together stories from its colorful NPCs, discover new classes and equipment, and explore a number of different locations through its environmental storytelling.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars Review

Based on one of Games Workshops’ most beloved tabletop experiences, the new Necromunda: Underhive Wars looks to bring the thrill of combat and the depth of strategy from tabletop to digital. With GW properties often struggling to impress, how does this latest entry stack up?

Necromunda: Underhive Wars

Necromunda: Underhive Wars Review

Necromunda: Underhive Wars blends together third-person action with strategic turn-based combat, giving players third-person control as they move around the map, taking up positions for a perfect kill shot or ambush. This is all before transitioning into turn-based combat with tactical abilities, hit percentages, and more buffs and debuffs than you’ll ever care to read.

Booting up Necromunda: Underhive Wars, I was tempted to immediately launch into the multiplayer action. However, the game recommends you dive into the story first. Erring on the side of caution, I decided to take that advice and dive head first into the narrative campaign.

This was my first mistake.

The story follows the warring gangs of the Underhive as they fight for survival, dominance, and riches. There are three houses featured throughout the story: House Orlock, House Goliath, and House Escher, with a few other characters thrown into the mix. It’s difficult to find any positives from the single player experience. The story is dull and the voice over work is either fantastic or awful; there’s seldom an in-between. I can’t recall half of the characters names or any purpose to most of them. The action definitely improves towards the latter stages of the campaign, but it’s a complete bore to get that far.

Having very little experience with the Necromunda setting, I was excited to learn more about the lore of the universe and the warring gangs. Unfortunately, the game does very little to offer any serious immersion or depth to the world and characters, an issue compounded by a lack of substance in the story and a combat system that is bland, boring, and lacks any real execution.

The entire backbone of Necromunda: Underhive Wars is the combat system. Every campaign mission is the same at a foundation level. A decent cut-scene sets the tone, before 45-60 minutes of combat with dull and repetitive objectives. Multiplayer, while benefiting from more exciting mechanics, again relies entirely on the combat to sell the experience. This would make sense, if the combat was even remotely fun or engaging.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars Review

Nothing ever seemed to matter. Whether I was playing against the ridiculously buggy and stupid AI or venturing into combat with other players, the tactics and strategy involved felt mundane throughout. After you select the starting location for each of your gang members, the first turn begins. Each player on each team selects the character they want to use, and then an initiative stat determines which of those characters goes first.

This is one level of the strategy that works well. Can you afford to use one of your slower characters, saving a vital action for a faster character in future turns? Or perhaps you’ve got an ally on the brink of death and need to act fast? It works well, and forms a solid foundation for the actions that follow.

Each individual turn from each player then takes place. Each character has two pools of energy used during …
