A week of Rick & Morty VR, Jason gets ready for Friday 13th and COD returns to WWII.
Ricky & Morty Virtual Rick-ality has been out for a few days now, and the general consensus is that the game is good, but VR has limitations. The trailer below is, as always, entertaining and well worth watching.
Virtual Rick-ality is available via Steam and Oculus now.
Gun Media have confirmed the release of Friday the 13th the video game for the 26th May. It will be available on PS4, Xbox One and Steam for $40.00, or your local equivalent.
The trailer boasts an 80s VHS/Betamax introduction setting the tone for the game of the cult classic slasher franchise. The music, jump scares and sound effects all take you back to the original movies, albeit this one doesn’t seem to involve Jason’s mum. The slasher and killing elements are as gruesome and set up as you would expect too.
The gameplay allows you stalk other players who are guests of Camp Crystal Lake or play as the guests trying to escape. The game can’t help but be compared to Dead By Daylight and heavily influenced by Evolve. However, this isn’t a bad thing. The competition in this genre will help it evolve further, and more titles will be released improving on the last, hopefully. Okay, I know there will also be complete rubbish released too, but that’s life.
However, there are going to be microtransactions, and they look like they could be, in some cases, pay to win too. Considering the game is a full price, and an online multiplayer, this could have a considerable impact on the balance of the game.
Hopefully, Gun Media will have adequately balanced the game to prevent it becoming a pay to win title.
Call of Duty Returns to WWII
So it has been confirmed that the new Call Of Duty will return to the Second World War. I started my COD career playing the single player of the original and the multiplayer. I believe it may have been the first online multiplayer I played too.
The return to the roots of the franchise follows Battlefield in going back in history, and I think this is a good thing. I was taken aback by the Stalingrad level in the original, and it kept me hooked on the series until MW2. Things started to get a little shaky and too repetitive after then, and I haven’t bought games in the franchise since then.
I like single player campaigns, they help you prepare for online matches but also provide you with an escape from the online community.
