A Few Announcements! [STICKY POST]

So it’s now 2016, and I want to add a few new things to make my site more interesting. So I thought up a few things that I I’m going to do:

  • Anime Of The Week will make a comeback
  • The addition of “Best Ending Ever” (Basically at the end of each anime season I’ll be posting pics of my favorite endings probably with some funny comment or something)
  • Gameplay Videos *With and without commentary* (I plan to do more gameplay videos since I have plenty of games to do so with. Boy will this be fun lol)
  • More video game Reviews/Overviews (Most will probably be Overviews since my backlog is very long lol)
  • Last but not least the reason I haven’t been posting music much here is because I have Soundcloud, YouTube, and Bandcamp for that. In case anyone was wondering.

So there you have it. I’m going to try to make this year fun on Epicly Amazing, and hopefully many more to come as well.


Infamous Second Son & Killer Is Dead Reviews

Over the weekend I finally beat Killer Is Dead, and a friend and I beat Infamous Second Son. These two reviews will be short and quick because honestly that’s all these games really need. Feel free to comment and ask any other questions if needed.

First off is Infamous Second Son.

GAMEPLAY – 10 Out Of 10 – The gameplay was well done and combat was fast and fluent, but the one flaw is the camera made it difficult to see things sometimes as it took weird angles every now and then.

GRAPHICS – 10 Out Of 10 – The game was very beautiful looking. So good job to them on that.

CONTROLS – 10 Out Of 10 – I had no problem with the controls. Infamous S.S. used all aspects of the controller from sound to touch pad and it wasn’t a problem at all.

STORY – 10 Out Of 10 – Now this is the big one. A 10 for the story because I enjoyed it a lot. The story in this one was much better than the others, and I believe it’s the fact that my motivation in the story felt extremely personal from the very beginning of the game. Another thing I should note is that while some may not agree, becoming Infamous on the moral scale is much more rewarding than than being good. In the other games it seemed like they geared you into being good, but in this one taking the evil route feels right when going through the game. So that’s exactly what my friend and I did.

REPLAY VALUE – 5 Out Of 10 – I don’t really see a point into playing it over again unless you want to take the moral route that you didn’t take first time around, but the powers don’t really seem all that different for the most part. Some conversations and events will play out a bit differently too, but in the end they don’t make THAT much of a difference.

Now on to Killer Is Dead.

GAMEPLAY – 8 Out Of 10 – Combat was very fast paced and full of action, but there didn’t really seem to be any real combos in the game for the most part. Nothing wrong with hacking and slashing away, but in a game like this I just wanted more combos lol.

GRAPHICS – 8 Out Of 10 – Not the best graphics in the world, but you have to remember that this is a Suda game (Suda 51, producer) and it’s supposed to be weird and unique in it’s own style. I enjoyed the graphics either way even if it wasn’t a Suda game.

CONTROLS – 10 Out Of 10 – The controls felt fine so no real complaints here. They were easy to remember and execute when moving around and in combat.

STORY – 5 Out Of 10 –  There was a story somewhere in the game, but it was a little hard to follow at times. Basically the gist of it is that the main problem of all the happenings in the game is a guy named David. At the end of the day the name David and Dark Side Of The Moon” are the only things you need to remember. Or you can do the latter and not care about the story, and just play through it destroying everything in your way until the sum everything up towards the end lol

REPLAY VALUE – 2 Out Of 10 – Two out of 10 only because there are some unlocks once you beat the game for the first time, and you may want to beat the game on another difficulty setting.

Final Thoughts

Infamous Second Son was pretty bad ass and a lot of fun to go through and overall I give it an 8 out of 10. As one of the few PS4 games out there right now, I’d pick it up and give it a go.

While fun and unique Killer Is Dead could’ve done better with the story. It kind of makes me feel bad that such great characters went to waste as the game didn’t really pull out their full potential. I liked our characters in the game and would like to see more of them in another game with a better story.

Resident Evil Revelations Review

Resident-Evil-Revelations-Logo

In Resident Evil Revelations you mainly play as Jill Valentine, Resident Evil’s poster girl lol. I say mainly because throughout the game you also play as other people of lesser importance that no one has ever seen in the series until now, well besides Chris that is lol.

The setting of the game is mostly on the Queen Zenobia, a ship that has been dead in the water for quite a while. This setting works very well because it give the sense and feel that you have no where to go because there is nothing but endless sea in all directions. The controls in the game are exactly the same as in previous games so they are easy to get a hold of, and you have the option of changing the control style in the options menu if you like. Your A.I. partner handles very well this time around too. No more game overs every two seconds because your A.I. partner can’t get their act together lol. In Resident Evil Revelations THERE IS NO CO-OP FOR CAMPAIGN MODE, however this does not make the game any less enjoyable at all. Sorry for the caps, but I had to clarify that in case some were wondering. RAID MODE is available for those who want to play with others online. While in Raid Mode you play the same levels as in the Campaign, but there is no story progression. This is why I mentioned the A.I. partner being very good, because throughout the game they will be one you will be with the whole time.

Now I bet you’re wondering if I actually liked the game or not, and that answer is yes. There is only one gripe I have with the game, and that is the dodge system. In Revelations the only time you can dodge is when enemies are in mid attack. You might be thinking that this sounds legit, but it’s not. Trust me lol. Dodging is performed by pressing either up or down on the left control stick and the X button (PS3). This simple button combination can mean the difference between life and death. While ironically I didn’t die that much in the game, I’ve already established that I suck at dodging in it lol.

Overall if you’re ok with there being no Campaign co-op, then give the game a go. I actually liked Revelations a little more that RE6, and hope they continue to make future Resident Evil games like this one. Except for without the dodge system that is. AzureNova gives Resident Evil Revelations a 4 out of 5 because I suck at dodging lol.


Metal Gear Rising: Revengance Review

So I think reviews will come out on Saturdays (When I have any reviews that is) from now on lol.

Metal Gear Rising Revengence logo

I’m going to keep this one short. From the makers of Bayonetta and Vanquish comes their latest project, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Over the years I have played quite a few Metal Gear games, but none have compared to the fun I had while playing Rising. The action swift and faced paced, enemies give you a good challenge, areas that looked nice and felt different, voice acting and character personalities great, a good story, boss fights and music were awesome, and a final boss fight (Cut scenes and all) that was just so very entertaining it made me laugh a few times.

I mean seriously what do you expect? It was developed by Platinum Games after all. I have been a fan of Platinum for a while now and they haven’t let me down yet. Go grab yourself a copy of Metal Gear Rising and cut your way to victory and awesomeness.
