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.

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 139 Stranger Things S03xE07 ‘The Bite’

“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.” John, Stephen, Jessica, and Mitch go over the entertainment news from the week and review of Netflix’s Stranger Things Season 3 & Episode 7 ‘The Bite’

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.
