I was playing Dead Rising 2 HD on PS4 and one thing that kind of annoyed me was the soundtrack. I feel like a soundtrack similar in energy to Crazy Taxi would be more appropriate instead of the boring lounge music. Sure, lounge music seems appropriate for the setting, but setting up Spotify app thru PS4, which allows me to stream music while playing a game is just fantastic! Listening to Radiohead while killing zombies makes the whole thing more depressing, or maybe some hiphop beats or jpop tracks to freshen up the grindiness. Now if only I can figure out how to stream a podcast or audiobook on PS4 as well.
TV SO GOOD!:D This month we’re getting the return of Supergirl/Superman, Flash, Arrow, and Luke Cage on Netflix. Also Walking Dead I think? I’ve been watching Once Upon A Time from the beginning so I’m still sticking with it and this time we have Aladdin joining the cast. Cool! But these are the actual shows that I’ve recently seen as well as starting Mr. Robot.
A lot of negativity and skepticism over the direction of ResidentEvil 7 is not unexpected. I don't particularly enjoy walking sims myself,not much action for my taste, so I'm actually pretty lukewarm on the idea. However, sometimes coming in at the height or tail end of a genre or trend, aka Horror Themed Walking Sims, can make for better games.
I put off gaming for a week and just spent my free time reading and watching tv for a change. I live in Southern California and we're in the middle of Summer and heat waves make it miserable to play games indoors, especially PC games, since I don't have AC, preferably, and I spend more time outdoors anyway during the summer anyway.
Xenoblade Chronicles X I've put about 50 hours into the game and forced myself to take a break. I can't remember the last time a game kept me immersed and unable to quit since maybe Witcher 3. I would not compare the two in any way aside from the time sink they both require. I don't even think some of the bad reviews for X were wrong. It is definitely built around old school level grinding, but it is oh so perty though. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface and I still need to understand the depth of combat and weapons options. I also want to play more of it, but a good break never hurt any game. I think taking a hiatus from a good game makes it feel fresh and new again when you pick it up again.
I took screenshots of Xenoblade X on WiiU. Thought I might post them instead of generic images from internet. I tried to be artsy. **Please note that after the first image which is a cut scene, most of the pictures are from the sand continent Oblivia, which is the emptiest area in the game. However, there are much more colorful areas to photograph which I will follow up on later.
