Prowl the disease ridden streets in Vampyr - a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind 'Remember Me' and 'Life is Strange', developed using Unreal Engine 4.
Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain's most elusive predators: the Vampires.
Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakes; as the player it is you who determines how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill-trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction. Your quest of intuition, discoveries and struggles, will be filled with death and drama, while your attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives.
As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu. Key Features
- Explore a darkly atmospheric early 20th century London.
- Play a tormented and powerful Vampire learning the rules of your new condition. A man of science, a beast of the night: Your toughest battles will be within yourself.
- Build your own combat style through a wide range of crafted weapons and powerful Vampire abilities to defeat a large and unique bestiary.
- Choose your fate: moral choices will shape your story. How human could a Vampire be, when he must feed?
A YouTube user by the name of Raime created this, very nice job:)
I have 3 , cut,copy and paste new stories for you this time. And afterwards I will add my thoughts.

MORE TIME TO PROMOTE AND POLISH [X] ADVERTISEMENT
When I spoke with XSEED executive vice president Ken Berry last year, he told me his studio lives and dies by pre-orders
. For a small team that localizes games for a niche, but enthusiastic audience, pre-orders determine whether certain retailers will continue to carry their products.
It seems that concern also extends to XSEED's parent company, Marvelous, which just postponed the release of one of its upcoming games, a PlayStation
Vita brawler called Uppers
, because not enough folks plunked down cash to reserve the game pre-release.
Producer Kenichiro Takaki broke the bad news earlier today in a surprisingly honest and heartfelt blog
, explaining that pre-order figures were dismally low and it wouldn't make sense for the company, from a business perspective, to release Uppers
at this time. Takaki hopes more time will allow his team to improve and promote the game, rather than have it sent out to die.
It's easy to decry pre-order culture, but, at least in some cases, it's a necessary evil.
This one come from Kotaku Game Delayed Due to a Lack of Pre-Orders
Here’s what happens when you stop pre-ordering games
, I guess.
According to Hachima
, Marvelous has delayed its PS Vita game Uppers
due to a lack of pre-orders. On the official Uppers dev blog
, game creator Kenichiro Takaki stated this about the delay: “The number one reason is that the number of pre-orders didn’t stretch as far as we thought.”
“We decide the initial number of copies for the marketplace on the number of pre-orders,” explained Takaki. That doesn’t mean he’s given up on Uppers
and he went on to explain how he was inspired to create this original game, which is basically beat’em up action meets fawning schoolgirls and underpants.
“If the demo is fun, I’m happy to receive those words,” Takaki added on the official site. “If you don’t dig it, throw those comments my way. But, I thank you for your interest.”
“Again, I’d truly like to apologize to those who pre-ordered and were looking forward to this game.”
The official announcement
moved the game’s release from April 21, 2016 to TBA.
And this was translated from the blog they mentioned.
"UPPERS (Uppers)" Notice of sale information change
We were allowed to issue a Notice of today "UPPERS" sale postponed. Sorry everyone who has reserved fun interested. And sales, apologize sincerely apologize a great deal of inconvenience to companies like the distribution relationship. But as long as it is pathetic to have gone on a regular basis such announcement in their own title. Officially announced that "various reasons", since the state equal to not explain why, in this blog, which were asked to hastily prepared but is impossible to slash all of the description, you wrote the raw words and feelings . *** The I want to tell in advance misunderstanding defunct way this time, the development staff is both finish the drawn on the mind game to the highest state with full force. It is in there is nothing of the problem, there are self-confidence. The reason is one, because I did not stretch than the number of reservations had been thought. The number of reservations will continue to decide the number of the first to be introduced to the market. It is not a number that does not realistically swallow given the recent market, but still want to believe more power potential with this work. "Sell surely if you make a good game," , "be! Extend also to many times in the reviews after the release" a pipe dream Nante is (would expect really is in the back of mind, but ...) to be the first place in the denominator is not large not be realized such to. Exhilarating action of possible enemy to bashed in a few seconds I do not is the world mean that can save in 30 seconds, a story that is TV animation is not being broadcast at the same time be able to experience the way of life of men, boobs do not fly out But we want a fantastic fool Eros of the game unique to Skirt and cheers flurry to experience a number of people .... The new is also fascinating to Bukkake flew titled "UPPERS" that starts from here please the time that sticks into the eyes of more people. Have to know the title, we will do all the hands in the hope that I want to try to play.This "UPPERS" is over in many of the hand of man, even one person, it is all that will enjoy. Might be what's I'm saying something guy and a tiny dream if Rarere calmly seen, I want to break the wall in the game Love multiplied to Furubokko system Motemote action.Trial version, happy and get up even a word that it was interesting Tara interesting. If you did not like me throwing the words, but thank you with interest. Again, people who have me looking forward already reserved, is not really sorry. When I became completely a little warm and I'm selfish here convenience, major change and surprise, with the wait was worthRISE UP will not be.
And here is video , thrown in just for fun:)
I recently posted this on the DCUO forums
One thing this forum is always talking about are names, but what really annoy's you as a name. Now you have a 100% right to name your toon whatever you want? But I also reserve the 100% right , to laugh at you and make fun of it at the same time. Now here's is where I get "philosophic" for a moment , lets pretend for a moment that comic books are real. Do you honestly think that the JLA, X-men , Legion of Doom etc. Would actually let you in the door, IF your name was a joke. Now I know a lot of you like your names and actually think that they are cool. theTRUTH is their really not. From names like Eel Milk to anything 420 related. These names are well, rather just plain fucking dumb.
"IF your wondering where this "Eel Milk" come from well that would be Jens Anderson the "creative" director at DC comics, I wouldn't call "Eel Milk" very fucking creative. But with stupid fucking names like this, it's no wonder the "new 52" failed so fucking miserably. Fuck! Eel Milk really?
So fucking LOL! "
So what names fucking annoy you the most?
I'll start and remember don't be a Paste Pot Pete!
Anything 420 related
anything with a "Z" on the end.
anything that starts with "I"
or lets not forget this classic "XXXXXinsertgenericnamehereXXXXX"
or the UPPERCASE/lowercase
Or perhaps this clip will explain better as too what I mean. Let the butt-hurt flow P.S. I will have the UN Censored version of this soon? Posted off this forum;)
I will add some more stuff later? Basically reactions to this post.
I thought I would start a new a new segment on AG, I often say this about stuff in general in real life. In fact one of my closest friends has quoted me as going to an actual gaming convention and saying not caring as joke, TRUTH is, I probably would. Now some people including the internet trolls would have you believe you actually do "care" ? Nope! just really don't care.
So like you I get bored so I decided to do a monthly list of things I don't care about. It can include games, movies, tv etc.... and it can be several things.
So for February 2106 here are the thing's I am not caring about.
Far Cry Primal, well the reason I am not caring about this game is because it's a Far Cry Game and that's all I need to know. But here is a trailer for those that actually do care. Sure it "looks" cool but meh! As for a prehistoric game, I will wait for Wild.
Another year and another Assassin's Creed has come and gone. And it will be at least another year or two? Before we get another AC. Well that's not entirely true either. Because after Ubisoft "officially" announced no new Creed this year the released a AC Chronicles game. Now granted this game is consider a major AC title. It's still am AC game.
Now I got that out of the way on to Syndicate, and in this game it focuses on the Frye twins Evie and Jacob. Evie is more about stealth and Jacob is more forward.
This year the game is in London at the turn of the century. I see the AC games more of a "History Simulation" then a "stealth game" and notable this year are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle or "Artie" , Karl Marx, Charles Darwin and Florence Nightingale and Alexander Gram Bell, he serves as your "Q" in the game. One of my favorite "side quests" in AC Syndicate are the Dreadful Crimes. New to Syndicate:)
I also wanted to mention the dlc in Syndicate you get a chance to go after one of London's notorious villains Jack the Ripper. I did not get a chance to play it unfortunately.
One new thing to AC this year is the Rope Launcher or Grappling Hook and you can see it demonstrated in the video below.
But not is all well in Syndicate, the biggest offence in AC are the controls. This is suppose to be a parkor or free running in AC and Ubisoft fucks it up every single year. It reminds me back in the day when they would make Tomb Raider games and fuck up the camera. Oh and get this, you now have an "up and down button" for running. Kinda shoots the whole "free running" to shit. But it doesn't stop their , their are collision detection issues with in the game as well. So many times you will attempt to loot a dead body and inadvertently pick them up. And again regards to the "free running" both Evie and Jacob cling to everything and it annoying! Especially when your climbing around London.
One thing I do appreciate about the AC games, their is no "do over" meaning you can't replay missions. So you have to get it right, the first time. Which is both good and frustrating because it will effect you awards. Another thing I hate is having to give "feedback" on every single mission.
Now IF Ubisoft was actually paying attention to the feedback that would be different. It almost reminds me of a person or pet that needs constant reassurance that your doing a "good job" basically a pat on the head.
The main reason and only reason to play AC syndicate is because of the story's main protagonists Evie and Jacob. And the rest of the game is typical AC through and through.
The fact that AC is going to skip a year is a good thing hopefully, both for gamer's and Ubisoft. Even though their will not be a "main" AC title this year? Their will be plenty of AC games to play in 2016.
I rented this game and I am glad I did. Because I never feel that AC games are never worth actually buying. At one time I did buy AC Black Flag and promptly returned it with in a few days. AC games are a fanboy title , now that's not to always say that this game is strictly for the fanboys but then again I'm not saying that. All that a side , I relay did enjoy AC Syndicate , mainly because of Evie and Jacob. And that's the reason to once again play AC Syndicate.
So until 2017 ? I will not be back with another AC review, because I really have no desire to play Chronicles.
Peace Out! Annihilation Gaming:)
