Gamersyde Diaries: Episode 4

Gamersyde Diaries: Episode 4

That's four already! It's amazing how fast time passes. For this new GSD, we decided to change our habits a tad, to try some new things for the fun of it. Was it a good idea? Time will tell, but let me tell you we had a lot of fun preparing the four features of this week's show.

Included, our impressions after a few hours playing Stalker, a little visit to Ubisoft studios in Montreuil to discover the campaign mode of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, some massive destruction with Earth Defense Forces 3, a very stupid game (hence a must-have) on 360 and finally a bonus track you'll need to find out about all by yourselves (we wouldn't want to spoil the surprise). Needless to say we're looking forward to reading your comments!

Nice, it keeps getting better.

Good to see pipomantis contributing a lot more to the discussion than in previous GSD, it serves for variety and a "second opinion", and who was that Madden fanboy anyways? lol.

One question though;

Stalker looked great and you guys gave good info on the game.

My question is, what hardware were you guys playing on? It chopped a bunch! if the game turns out alright I'd love to play it, but hopefully requirements aren't that bad. And that's something else you can talk about when previewing PC games, the hardware you are on.

And GRAW 2 is not in Mexico City but it takes place in the Mexico-US border, and that's not South America. When people think of North America they think US and Canada and forget Mexico, but technically Mexico is part of NA. If anything, it could be said Mexico is part of Central America......but enough of that, just informing.

This is the first Gamersyde Diaries video I have watched. Generally I don't watch any of these types of internet game shows (1UP show irritates me). However I was very impressed! Great footage, imaginative script, intelligent and funny dialogue and VERY nice editing work. I look forward to the next one. B)

PS You guys sold me on GRAW2.

GRAW 2 looks incredible, and STALKER looks like it's defied all the odds and turned out to be pretty good!

Gamersyde Diaries is awesome!

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog [url] Nioh is looking pretty good. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (2 Hours ago)
