#57: Necromunda: Hired Gun (pc)

So they saw DooM Eternal and thought “We can do that”…and it’s close but yeahnah. The story is meh, the gameplay is DooM Eternal but with lack of polish and a fair amount of bugs. NPC animations are…not great and sometimes you just die in a couple of seconds…because, I guess aimbot kicked in 😐

A couple of times I got stuck in the ground and most of the time I could just hookshot myself free but one time I got stuck in one of the floating skull-screen-drone-things (you can teleport out of the mission with them or buy stim packs) while a boss and his goons blasted me…the fight ended when I, in my panic, managed to click the damned thing while mashing space…level restarted 😑

Speaking of the bosses! They are just bullet sponges and there is nothing special about them. At least give them a life bar so that I know how much longer I need to dodge around.

At least the environments look nice and the music and sound is great so…that’s something positive 🦆 I guess it’s fun to upgrade your characters bionics too but…meh, I barely used the active upgrades 🤔

The game has one thing that DooM Eternal does not…a dog! At least it started out as a dog but then I found that I could upgrade the poor thing and it turned into some meat/metal abomination! He was still a good boi though and helped me out when I needed him 🐾

I short: They should have worked on it for a bit longer, fixing some bugs and shining it up a bit. It crashed on me twice in the 10 hours it took for me to beat it, I’ve played worse games. Maybe if you like 40K but I’d say play DooM Eternal instead.

4/10 “Dogs”

Yeah this was pretty boring. What next? A friend told me to try Bit Dungeon…it’s short and it looks like it could be fun 🤔

Started jogging again. 5.6km in 33 minutes, not bad for a fat nerd 🦛

#54: Warhammer 40K: Space Marine (pc)

3rd person pewpew with a lot of orcs and oversized shoulder pads ^^

It’s basically Gears of War without the cover mechanic…and Gears of War is basically Warhammer 40k with Locust instead of Orcs 😐

The control layout is a bit weird and Titus moves like a fridge on wheels but you get used to it, it’s playable. It looks fine for its age and it has some chunky sound, the story is whatever and the Orcs are green…yep 🦆

Oh, there is a lot of melee combat in the game and it feels pretty satisfying tearing through a group of Orcs. It’s probably a 50/50 split between kills with guns vs melee so, yeah, lot’s of flailing around with battle axes and stuff.

The game is ok, nothing special and nothing I’ll play again…but good enough that I’m interested in playing Space Marine 2 when it’s out. It does make you feel kind of badass being an Ultra Marine so they got that right 👍

6/10 Overcompensating shoulder pads 🦏

Only one week left until my vacation and I really need it, I am so tired of all the things…I’ll waddle to the store and stock up on nommables and plant myself in the couch for a month of videogames 🦆 …and fixing the car…and doing some gardening…and painting some stuff on the house…and cleaning out my garage…and recording music…and finding time to have a BBQ or two with friends…this does not sound like a vacation 😑

#12: Space Hulk Deathwing (PS4)

I am not a Warhammer 40k player so the story was all wabbluwabblu to me ^^

It looks pretty sweet and it sounds good but oh my god it is the same thing the whole game. Same waves of tyranids and same spaceship interior. I got really bored. A friend told me “well, just play one chapter a day and you won’t get bored”…yeah that’s the mark of a good game ^^

If you like 40k the story might be worth a playthrough but otherwise I’d stay away.

I’m of to work!

#52: Warhammer 40K: Kill Team (X360)

I asked one of my friends if he had any good co-op games ^^ I had never heard of this and apparently this is a prequel to Warhammer 40k: Space Marine but this is a top down twin stick shooter. It felt pretty short, it only had a handful of missions, and it did bug out a couple of times :/ There are better co-op games out there and unless you are a diehard 40K fan you can just skip this.

KillTeam

3/10 WAAAGH!

I also painted a metroid…
