Late Gamer Plays Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

A Review From Hidai Moya

This is a good game but it was not as amazing as I had hoped.
It is more of an homage to the series rather than a standalone new adventure, that felt a lot like it was retreading old ground. Even its beloved action set piece was something we had seen a bit before.
I felt that a lot of the climbing was spammy & the puzzles were nonsensical even by Uncharted standards, however Naughty Dog has an incredible talent for creating visually rich cinematic locales.
The Scottish wilds were lavishly beautiful & my favorite in the game. I wish however that it maintained its linear structure instead of its semi open world design, that is not as rewarding as it thinks it is.
This is undeniably a good production but as unpopular as it may sound it is my least favorite Uncharted game.

Late Gamer Plays Spider-Man: The City That Never Sleeps

A Review From Hidai Moya

This has to stand out as some of the best Downloadable Content of the 8th Generation.
“The City That Never Sleeps” continues Spidey’s adventures in New York City, as he pairs up with Black Cat & Silver Sable to take out Hammerhead.
I am so amazed at how Insomniac makes the gameplay feel so fresh & new with its level design & missions (it’s not just the same tasks we already played in the main game). There are some outstanding action set pieces, particularly the final showdown with Hammerhead that are so well made, it makes you feel like a kid again with how cartoonishly fun it is. They also did the right thing by bringing Screwball back, a fantastic secondary villain with joyfully hilarious voice acting.
The writing continues to be as sharp & witty as well, with Spider-Man having, once again, great lines.
This is DLC done right. Quality stuff here.

Late Gamer Plays Batman – The TellTale Series: The Enemy Within

A Review From Hidai Moya

This second Batman Telltale game does a lot right, but it can not quite stick the landing.
Its first chapter with The Riddler is a fantastic & grim story that borrows elements from the Saw movies. Later on, as it introduces Mr. Freeze, Bane, & Harley Quinn, things start to get really intense as Bruce Wayne infiltrates their criminal ring by befriending them. Bruce being stuck in between a perilous friendship with The Joker while Amanda Waller is riding his ass is great drama. But then as the story begins to end it can not maintain the momentum it needs to satisfy all it has been building up to.
I feel that lifelong Batman fans deserve better endings than some we have already seen many times.
While uneven it’s still a unique & occasionally hairy Batman adventure, worth getting on sale especially to see a unique side of the Joker.

Assassin’s Creed Origins Vs Odyssey

A Side By Side Comparison From Hidai Moya

I’ve poured 400 hours into Origins & 300 hours into Odyssey. While Odyssey overall is a more well rounded game, Origins is still my favorite one. Since they both use the same game engine it’s the way in which the gammakers decided to implement its design that makes all the difference. The Sahara Desert in Origins feels far more immersive & has a better layout than the Greek landscape does in Odyssey. Yet the melee combat in Origins feels anemic when compared to that of Odyssey. Both games are good, but they aren’t as similar as some may think. Their differences make each one worth exploring.

Late Gamer Plays Assassin’s Creed: Origins – The Curse Of The Pharaohs

A Review From Hidai Moya

Being set in Ancient Egypt it was naturally expected that AC Origins would explore mummies & curses.
This Downloadable Content adds two new lands to explore. Whereas AC Origins was entirely set in Lower Egypt, this finally adds Upper Egypt & all its iconic places like The Valley of the Kings & The City of Thebes. Encountering the undead however is only limited to four small underworlds, & though undeniably beautiful, their small self contained maps contrast heavily with the overall feel of the game, that & its boss fights are really unoriginal.
It is in the new combat abilities & in the new regions to explore, that the gameplay is at its best. In fact, the integration of Egyptian mythology, history, & AC lore, is told so well at times it is almost better than the main story.
I just wish they would not level cap Bayek since he could one hit/one kill everyone.

@GeekEliteMedia The Mandalorian on the other hand is a product of Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau. Two names who I would trust not to ruin an IP because they have both been involved with it and created something within that universe before.

'The Griswolds', a half-hour single camera comedy based on 'National Lampoon’s Vacation' films, has been put into development with Johnny Galecki attached to produce at HBO Max.
