Gris Review


Posted on 02/26/2019 at 01:36 PM | Filed Under Review

I wasn't sure what to make of this game. It definitely looked amazing in motion but I wasn't sure if it'd be another game I buy and just never get around to. Your review has definitely piqued my interest. Its funny how 4 hours make my interest grow where 10 years ago I'd have read that sentence and passed. Think I may get this on a sale to play with my daughter. Great review.

Thank you, I came up with the idea one day when I saw 200, "must play," titles releasing in one quarter. I figured celebrating other great releases that can be found for cheap could help someone who's budgeting. Even if they aren't, they may have missed a great game because they were engrossed in something else. I definitely recommend finishing Horizon if you were enjoying it. The phyiscal version with DLC is usually on sale and cheaper than just buying the digital DLC. Strange how that works.

Ah, ok. Was afraid my app was getting too old. I wish Sarah Conner went longer, I really enjoyed it. Fringe was amazing, I miss it. It actually went 5 seasons but you probably blocked out those memories...

Glad to have you with me on another work night. Not sure what happened but this one didnt pop up on my Doggcatcher App. Hope that was just a small glitch. 

Anyways I hope this new giveaway helps boost numbers. I love this podcast and was genuinely sad when you said you almost called it quits after Angelo left. It is irreplaceable compared to my other podcasts. Keep up the good fight!

I wasn't confused by the Stage Select topic last week. I may have came off wrong but I was trying to say the type of game I'd make. I dont know what type of game Gain Ground fits into but it's hard to describe unlike RPG or Adventure.

The game isnt so much about trying to fight for land. You start with 3 characters and have to try to get each to the, "finish line" at the top of the screen while avoiding/killing enemies. If you get hit you go unconscious, but then you can use the other characters to retrieve them and if you escape they dont die. Alternatively you can just kill all the enemies on screen to finish the level. Along the way each map, if I remember correctly, has a new character to rescue and they will join your team. So you can have 20+ characters with different weapons. I think it's worth a try if you have a Genesis collection laying around somewhere. I can easily see a great sequel be pretty cool with a tad of RPG elements.

You should definitely check out Apex Legends. It's really good and would be my first recommendation for a BR.

You mentioned the Terminator show but you're off. It was called the Sarah Conner Chronicles and I wish it hit 5 seasons. It only had 2 and left on an interesting cliff hanger. Damn you Fox!!!

While not every game has a built in timer, I think you can check the time played on your Xbox Achievements page. It takes a bit of digging but you should find it just fine. I could have sworn PS4 has something similar but I could be wrong. Speaking of that...

 

Stage Select: Next Gen Features

I think next gen should let us use our old controllers and be completely backwards compatible with this current gen. I'd like more mod support like PC. I know Xbox dabbled in this with Fallout 4 but I don't know if anything else has.

I personally wouldn't mind some kind of upgrade kits. Make it very simple so those who want to avoid PC type maintenance can get by with practically no issue. It should be as easy as changing tapes in a VCR like the N64 Expansion Pack.

Great return guys. Glad to have NWP back. It was there for me on those record breaking winter nights at work. Honestly helped pass the time out there. 

Stage Select: Retro Indie

I'm going to keep it within reason. I would love a retro remake of Gain Ground. I would definitely add more characters and weapons. I also would go rogue like with it and randomize the levels after you finish the initial campaign. There would also be randomized heroes to find, bigger and better bosses. Up to 4 player coop also.

Its definitely a game you want to play when you have a solid amount of time. Maybe before the November rush.

I bought this on PS2 when it first released. I remember being a Babbages employee and buying it on a whim. I also bought a dozen other games between my PS2/GC/XB so I never got around to even popping it in. I'm glad I got a chance to retry it with a nice graphical update.
