In Depth - A merciless lens pointed on the hot topics, passionate and detailed retrospectives, reflections beyond the appearances According to Ubisoft, games running at 30 frames per second are more “cinematic” compared to those running at 60 fps. Obviously this is utter bullshit, in 1980 Pac-Man ran at 60 Hz and these clowns are still trying to sell one nonsense after another in the attempt to hide their inability to produce next-gen gaming crap. Lies are legion mostly on PC, the most ill-treated gaming platform ever despite the enormous user base and the positive trends in sales. Luckily there are modders out there, in this case.

Bloodborne

Bloodborne

The main feature of Dark Souls gameplay is fighting the horrible monsters living in the game’s world by carefully choosing where and how to hit, conversely the main feature of Bloodborne seems to be openly fighting the horrible monsters living in the ruined city of Yharnam, hitting with the biggest weapon you have in your inventory. The From Software name should guarantee the quality of the new gaming experience. To be released on March 2015 for PlayStation 4.

Fist of Jesus

Fist of Jesus

The version of the Gospels Fist of Jesus is inspired to is a bit different than the orthodox one, and it’s exactly how I have always imagined the story of Lazarus myself: the dead rising to a new life is a zombie, and Jesus will end up fighting an army of undead with the aid of the Holy Spirit, the Miracles and Jude. He was dead as well but in the end he came back without zombiefication. Inspired to the splatter short film with the same name, Fist of Jesus is a side scrolling beat’em up that should not be missing in everyone’s games collection. Though it seems to be nonsense, frankly. Available now on PC Windows as digital download (Steam).

Murder

Murder

A new low-fi point and click graphic adventure? Check. A visual style inspired by everything that’s good in the cyberpunk genre (Akira, Ghost in the Shell, …)? Check. An attempt to capture the cinematic mood of the aforementioned sci-fi films? Check. A detective of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police entangled with a case featuring killer robots and Blade Runner-like atmospheres? Check. From the creators of Stranded, Murder will be out in 2015. If the world will not end beforehand.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The hunt as the main theme of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a clear enough fact, a hunt including a chasing after a magically dangerous brunette was a less clear one and the game’s cinematic intro is descriptive enough on the matter. The third and last game centered on the deeds of Geralt of Rivia will bring all its manly rpgitude on PC Windows, PS4 and Xbox One on February 2015.

This War of Mine

This War of Mine

Inspired by the real events of the siege of Sarajevo, This War of Mine is a war game featuring those who usually endure war, ie the civilians that are hiding to avoid being shot by a sniper by day and that are wandering on the streets of a ruined city in search for food and supplies by night. The gameplay based on survival and the side-scrolling perspective remind me of Deadlight, and the lack of zombies isn’t a bad thing for once. Besides, the developers are super-friendly even with those dirty and evil pirates. This War of Mine is available since November on PC (Windows, Linux, OS X).
