In the past I tried to post something at least once a month but as you noticed my frequency became way lower. In order to post more frequently I'll change the style a bit. Instead of longer posts I will also add shorter link-list-style posts to quickly show what's on my mind more often. So let's begin with a few short paragraphs about the gaming stuff that happened in the last months:
At the beginning of the year I patiently waited for the PC release of GTA V. The news about a few months of delay was not pleasing but with all these game releases in mind that had buggy versions and had to be patched immediately in order to be playable I hoped for a smooth start. Articles about improved graphics in comparison to the console version were also nice and made me even more patient. Good things take time! When it was finally released in April it was a really fun game to play. The size of its world was stunning and I enjoyed the whole story and tons of side quests. Now that the main story is finished I really need to take a closer look at the possibilities of GTA Online.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
This game has one of the most detailled and beautiful visuals I've ever seen in a videogame. Take a look at this 8K screenshot gallery to understand why I'm so thrilled.
Silent Hill is one of my all-time favourite videogame franchise. It couldn't have been better: Videogame genius and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojimo teams up with horror movie director Guillermo del Toro to create the next Silent Hill game called "Silent Hills". Hideo had ambitious goals: "We are aiming for a game that will make you shit your pants. If you don’t want to continue playing through the game, so be it. We don’t care."With P.T. they even created a playable teaser (hence the abbreviation) that scared people to the bone and was an amazing PR campaign to advertise the production of Silent Hills. But unfortunately Hideo Kojima left Konami, the game was cancelled and only interpretations are left of what P.T. was about.
Some time after that I read about Allison Road which is heavily inspired by Silent Hills and P.T. Take a look at their prototype gameplay.
Metal Gear Solid V
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released in September but I have to admit that I haven't even played Ground Zeroes yet. But I'm sure that 1080p 60fps gameplay footage I already wrote about will blow you away!
Okay, now we're talking! I'm posting this two days before the release of Fallout 4 and I'm really excited. Since I got to know Fallout 3 in 2008 I've played through it several times and sometimes wished I could forget all about it to re-experience another first playthrough. This makes the first playthrough of Fallout 4 even more exciting as it will be a whole new Fallout world to experience. I can't wait to dive into its atmosphere and discover all its tiny details!
