Overkill Software has built upon the success of their first game Payday: The Heist, and once again proven that not many things are as fun as grabbing some friends and spending an evening pulling off high-risk, high-reward bank heists and jewelry store robberies. The stress induced by shouting over your microphone just to be heard above the sound of high-powered rifles, screaming hostages and flashbangs is incredible, and every successful job will leave the player with a massive adrenaline rush.
Both Demon’s Souls & Dark Souls have earned a reputation for their brutal difficulty, but they aren’t the start of this trend. The origin of this design began with From Software’s Kings Field Series that first came out on the PS1. The game played entirely in first person. So with the release of this mod by Soul Slasher, Dark Souls returns to a simpler time with this 1st person mod.
The Walking Dead 400 Days begins at a missing persons board. A breeze sweeps through photographs of anonymous loved ones who we wouldn’t expect had a story worth telling. These are the stories we assumed ended day one. At the very least, we assumed that these stories are about survival; the same story we’ve experienced in every zombie fiction. Telltale subverts these assumptions by broadening a genre exhausted by the survival narrative.
