    gta Crew Challenge 187 – I Like Propane

  3. Publisher: SEGA Developer: SEGA Release: June 21, 2019 Reviewed on: PlayStation 4 Kamurocho is no stranger to violence, but a recent series of murders is unsettling even for the crime-riddled Tokyo neighborhood. In a particularly gruesome calling card, the killer gouges out the eyes of his victims. Thankfully, Takayuki Yagami is on the case. An attorney-turned-detective, he has the credentials and tenacity to bring justice where it’s needed – no matter how far the investigation may take him. His methods might get results, but they’re ultimately overshadowed by the strong story and engaging world-building. Developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio is known for its Yakuza series, and Judgment is effectively a new Yakuza game in all but name. It takes place in the same place Kazuma Kiryu and company have called home for more than a decade, but the similarities don’t end there. Animations, side activities, and other elements have been directly transferred over to this new title. The Yakuza franchise is great, but trying to keep track of its characters and plot (which span seven massive games) is a like trying to sip from a fire hose. Judgment is a completely fresh narrative start that doesn’t require – or even reward – previous Yakuza experience. All you need to really need to know is that gangsters run this town, and the officials may be even bigger crooks. Click here to watch embedded media Judgment’s big bullet-point addition is how it leans into the detective fantasy. Yagami’s agency is small, so he takes on a variety of mundane cases (such as tracking down missing items or an underpants-stealing creep) in addition to the larger, overarching murder investigation. That element is split into several main components, and some are stronger than others. The worst are the tailing missions, where you follow people without letting their suspicion meters fill. They’re tedious and overlong, and they’re also an unfortunately common part of investigations. Conceptually, I liked the parts where you examine crime scenes for hidden details, which you use to put together a hypothesis on what happened. The actual stakes are disappointingly low, however; you’re free to blunder your way through the dialogue options with no penalties, aside from some embarrassed text responses a slight ding to your experience bonus. The real consequences happen in battle, oddly enough. Yagami might not be a member of a crime family, but that doesn’t mean he’s safe as a civilian. Even before getting involved in the deeper mystery, he’s constantly getting hassled and attacked. Thankfully, he’s a solid brawler, and beating down thugs is dependably fun. He has a couple of fighting styles at his disposal, so you can take out crowds with swooping crane attacks or lash out at individual opponents with his tiger form. Judgment adds a wrinkle to the familiar framework with the introduction of mortal wounds. Tougher enemies can wreak additional havoc on the player by targeting Yagami’s lifebar. If these attacks are successful, your maximum health is sapped until you see a doctor or use a rare item. Both are expensive solutions, and it’s quite possible to have neither one available during the frequent (and lengthy) set-piece encounters. It’s an oddly punitive touch for a game that’s so generous to players otherwise. Click image thumbnails to view larger version Kamurocho has plenty to offer when you’re not busy tracking down criminals. The biggest side activity is drone racing, which gives Yagami something else to do with his toy beyond spying on people. I went all-in on the mode, completing optional missions to get the best possible parts, though you don’t have to engage with racing if it’s not your thing. I wasn’t as excited about a lame virtual virtual-reality minigame, where you roll dice to maneuver on a weird life-sized playfield and get items for cash. That’s in addition to the array of casino games, arcade games, and other diversions at your fingertips when you’re ready to take a break. Even though I wasn’t in love with all of Yagami’s investigatory tools, I had a great time seeing the Yakuza formula from a fresh perspective. Judgment tells a sprawling, action-packed story that veers dangerously close to melodrama without falling apart. It has some genuinely shocking moments, and proves that you don’t need Kiryu or Majima as tour guides to have a great time in Kamurocho. Score: 8 Summary: This Yakuza spinoff proves that you don’t need Kiryu or Majima as tour guides to have a great time in Kamurocho. Concept: Use your detective skills to stop a serial murderer in a new game from the studio behind the Yakuza series Graphics: Kamurocho’s familiar streets look as good as ever, and they’re packed with detail Sound: You can listen to the story in either English or Japanese, with full dubs in both languages. Either way, the performances are solid Playability: Combat is engaging and responsive, but some of the detective-oriented tasks are clunky Entertainment: Judgment is a Yakuza game in all but name, offering the same dizzying array of action, side content, and a lengthy (and convoluted) story Replay: Moderately high Click to Purchase View the full article
  4. All mentioned already and the ability to own a gatlin gun equipped wagon. Also cavalry style swords would be cool, cut the shit out of @Dodge with one of those...fuck yeah. Bull whips also.

    We are looking to get Season 3 going around August. Right now @Potato and @Spinnaker1981 are getting the tracks ready. As we get the tracks we will need to do alot of testing to find suitable combinations. @Dodge and @omarcomin71 will take the lead, but we would like to ask for help testing cars. The more testing and feedback we get the better season. During July we hope to run several sessions testing, both together and solo. The more laptimes the better, hopefully we can have some fun as well. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in! I imagine we set up a thread or pm to share feedback and laptimes.

    I was absolutely disappointed during Ep. 8 when Hatch didn't say that Alpaca Rally VR was his video game concept. And that alternative porn sounds way too wacky for my taste even if i am paper clipping my nipples at work. lol. Anyhow, will listen a second time and fill these out....

  20. The option to host jobs would be nice, not just join a random series. Along with that the host being able to alter settings like no dead-eye, no owned weapons, non-contact races (because horses still die far too easily from slight collisions) etc would of course be great.
  21. Take to the pitch in an acclaimed football simulator and put the pedal to the metal in a nostalgic arcade racer with your next batch of PlayStation Plus Monthly Games for July.

Horizon Chase Turbo Prepare for a blast of pure ‘90s nostalgia with Horizon Chase Turbo, a love-letter to the iconic, just-one-more-go racers of the arcade’s golden age.

  23. Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle delivers all of the action from the popular anime to PlayStation 4, and that includes storylines beginning with Season 1 all the way through the end of Season 3, Part 2. That’s right, the game is working hand-in-hand with the show’s creators to recreate the most heart-pounding Titan battles (as well as original stories!), including an intriguing character development, the Armin Titan. “To endure becoming a monster, you have to discard your humanity.” — Armin Arlert Armin, known to Attack on Titan’s fans as the introverted scout and quick-witted soldier, has eaten the villainous Bertolt in a recent anime episode, leaving the impression that he acquired the power to transform into the Colossal Titan. And that transformation is already complete in the upcoming PS4 game releasing on July 5. Summoning the Armin Titan in the game’s all-new Character Episode mode — a branching storyline that covers all of Season 3 through three different perspectives (the Scout Regiment, the 104th Cadets, and the enemies of humanity known as the Warriors) — players will now be able to call on Armin’s assistance to help smash enemies at will thanks to the giant-sized Armin Titan. Unlocking Armin Titan in Character Episode mode then enables you to experience the fun of pounding enemies as the skinless giant in some of the game’s other modes as well. But that’s not all of the new Season 3 content included in Final Battle, as the upcoming game also introduces the heroes’ new Thunder Spears into action, enabling players to fire projectiles at Titans for the first time in series history. Add to that the addition of rapid-fire Gatling guns, anti-personnel omni directional mobility gear, and other fantasy weapons, and the showdown between man and Titan has never been more intense. “The only thing we’re allowed to believe is that we won’t regret the choice we made.” — Hajime Isayama In addition, Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle includes an all-new Territory Recovery mode, where fans can put together their dream team of Titan killers in hopes of taking back their land, all the while researching and upgrading their weapons to deliver the ultimate impact. Playing through Territory Recover mode and Character Episode mode, fans can expect at least 30 hours of all-new explosive content at their fingertips, with over 70 hours of gameplay to achieve 100-percent completion. Add in addictive online modes with characters flying across the screen blasting each other with the new Gatling guns and Thunder Spears, and fans of the award-winning anime will have more variety in Titan gameplay than ever before. Attack on Titan 2: Final Battle will be available as an upgrade pack for fans who already own Attack on Titan 2 (enabling you to begin your battle in Season 3), or as a standalone game for those who are starting fresh, delivering all of the action of Seasons 1-3 in one package. “If you win, you live. If you lose, you die. If you don’t fight, you can’t win.” — Eren Yeager Attack on Titan fans who are enjoying the show’s latest season can continue the battle on PS4 on July 5. View the full article

  25. Some fun, open-ended free roam activities for both PvE (but not picking up mushrooms, chasing frogs or waiting for a hideout to spawn) and PvP (which are not cancer/griefing). Stuff like tracking roaming gangs for rewards, breaking into banks/establishments, doing timed point-to-point pick up jobs while being chased by waves of bounty hunters... etc.

    I hope there is a counter to the MKII Oppressor, but not another OP vehicle. Or maybe buff another vehicle to counter it.
