Late Gamer Plays Marvel Spider-Man

A Review From Hidai Moya

Borrowing heavily from the Ubisoft open world formula, a page from the Rocksteady Arkham games, & a solid dose of its own gaming heritage, Insomniac’s concoction has created not only the definitive Spider-Man game but one of the greatest superhero titles ever.
This thoroughly, consistently, delivered non stop thrills over & over & over again it put me in a state of euphoria unlike any other open world title I’ve played. Spidey’s hypnotic acrobatic web swinging & combat mechanics is pure bliss (he is also so goddamn hilarious not a minute went by where I wasn’t laughing). More impressive still is the fact that this is probably the best incarnation of Peter Paker we’ve seen, including his film incarnations. Dazzling visuals combined with beautiful character moments make this an unforgettable experience. Amazing.

Gaming With Jeremy: Apex Legends

A Review From Jeremy Miller

When it comes to video games, the big thing right now is “Battle Royales”. Whether you prefer to play solo or with a squad, there is no shortage of options. Fortnite and PUBG have been two of the most popular for well over a year, and the bigger developers have taken notice and even came out with their own versions of the popular genre. Respawn Entertainment, the creators of the Titanfall game franchise, have created a BR called ‘Apex Legends’. It feels as if all I have played in the last year are “Battle Royales”, so I was a little skeptical when I first played it, thinking that it would feel the same as the others with just with different cosmetics. Man was I wrong, and I’m glad I was.

‘Apex Legends’ is a class based shooter, meaning each character has abilities and specials that only they can use. For instance, Lifeline is a Combat Medic. She can deploy a healing drone and drop a care package for her team to get defensive and healing supplies. Bangalore is a combat specialist, or DPS, character. She can throw out smoke grenades and when her special is ready, can drop Rolling Thunder, an artillery strike. With each character having their own strengths and abilities, the game kinda forces players to play with a team first mentality, rather than running off on your own. And that alone separates ‘Apex Legends’ from the other BR games at the moment.

‘Apex Legends’ is a beautiful game. The graphics are amazing and if it weren’t for other players trying to shoot my head off, I’d probably have time to snap more screenshots. The only game mode is Trios, meaning that if you don’t have a friend or two in your party, the game will match you with randoms. The game will randomly select who picks their character first, then second and third. The other new thing that was added, is called a Jumpmaster, who is also selected at random. The Jumpmaster is the one who can select a spot and jump out of the flying vehicle to land at that position. The game does give the option for a player to break away from the group and go off on their own. Once your team has landed, the mission to survive begins. There is plenty of loot laying around for everyone to have 2 weapons of their choice with a couple of attachments. Which in turn makes it extremely interesting if there are other groups that landed with you.

Not only is Apex Legends a beautiful designed game with great mechanics, it’s also free on PC, XBox and PlayStation. I can’t wait to see what new characters Respawn has in store for us. I have yet been able to secure a victory, but that doesn’t matter. I like to play games because I have fun, especially if it’s with friends. But I would be lying if I told you I don’t have a competitive side. I will get that win one day. And I’ll brag about it to my cat.
Overall I would have to rate this game a solid 9/10.

Late Gamer Plays Forza Horizon 4

A Review From Hidai Moya

With ‘Forza Horizon 4’, Microsoft/Xbox continues to prove that it owns the flagship car/racing series of the 8th generation. Not only does it breathe new life into this decades old genre but it also takes a racing game to unprecedented heights it’s literally never been to before.
The developers had the ingenious idea of introducing a dynamic open world whose environment would change with every annual season. Allowing players to have a fully shared open world with other drivers is also a gleefully whimsical feature that ensures a unique experience every time you play.
On a technical level this game also looks impeccable in native 4K & on the XBox One X.
As of launch, it has also become the highest rated AAA racing game of the last 14 years.

Late Gamer Plays Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds

A Review From Hidai Moya

This game offers a stark contrast to the overwhelming amount of multiplayer “First Person Shooter” titles out on the market.
A non arcade, tactic based, realistic, battle royale simulator that is incredibly unforgiving & requires a hard learning curve to master. It is by it’s very nature not for everyone. Traditional FPS skills will not easily transfer over since its mechanics are designed to favor more precise gun-play combat than the “pray & spray” habits usually employed.
The best compliment I can give to it is that it, more than any FPS game I’ve played, fulfills that old war adage of long boring silence punctuated by moments of sheer terror. I’ve felt genuine fear creeping through buildings & looking both ways before I go somewhere not knowing if someone is about to kill me. It’s unpredictable nature is what makes it fun to come back to.

Grade B

Later Gamer Plays Shadow Of The Tomb Raider

A Review From Hidai Moya

I was really excited for this given the fact that I am Mayan myself with an affinity for Meso-American culture, & I also loved the first game in the reboot. This third title however is only slightly better than its predecessor, if only because it’s setting is a visual improvement & there is an attempt at telling a more original story even if all of its elements don’t always work well.
It’s evidently clear most of the effort went towards creating its beautiful rain forest setting rather than the writing. Its depiction of the jungle is visually striking but it’s semi open world design can be frustrating to navigate.
The story is just okay. Even with excellent voice acting & character models, it can’t pull off a satisfying climax because it weaves too many plot lines together & doesn’t know what to do with them all. Buy it on sale.
