Akiba'Strip: Undead & Undressed LIVE STREAM

"AKIBA'S TRIP: Undead & Undressed is an open-world action RPG in which players undertake numerous missions in a virtual recreation of Akihabara, Tokyo's popular ”Electric Town” district. The player's goal is to identify vampires called “Synthesizers” with the help of an in-game smartphone app, then engage them in battle to strip their clothes off so their bodies are fully exposed to sunlight. Boasting a unique combat system in which everyday objects become weapons, multiple story routes, a varied cast of characters based on common anime and video game tropes and a narrative dripping with social satire and subtle nods to Japanese pop culture, AKIBA'S TRIP is a present-day supernatural adventure for the gamer in all of us."

I have no idea what I'm playing. Heard about the game. Was interested in it when it released in the West. But just didn't quite get it. Finally I ate my curiosity, buckled down and bought the game. The girl who checked me out at Gamestop insisted on repeating (quite loudly) that the game was about stripping vampires of their clothing. She told me that about four times–within the crowd–before I finally swiped my card and gave her that tight-teeth grin (you know, the 'I know and get it' grin.) The whole stripping thing I already got via my research of the game.  I guess she just wanted me to feel some type of way for buying the game. 

Now I'm really not into fan service anime/manga unless the guys get a dose of the humiliation too.  Which happens in Akiba'Strip! So, bored out of my mind, I got the game and am now streaming pieces of my gameplay. All I can say is that it's... well... frankly Japanese.

Today's LIVE Stream of Resident Evil 0 HD

Resident Evil 0 is one of my favorite games in the Resident Evil franchise–for a variety of reasons.  I love the grittiness of its atmosphere the protagonist Rebecca Chambers and Billy Cohen traverse through.  Of course as they unveil the Umbrella Corporation's secrets, while fighting zombies and mutated monsters.  Nonetheless, naturally, I love the music as well.
I also love the game because of Rebecca's unassuming nature, and how strong of a character she was.  The game puts Rebecca through hell–and number of times.  She's a survivor.  The homely bad-ass.
The list  goes on.  I have so many great memories of the game when it initially released on the GameCube in 2002.  The night I bought it, me and some friends were heading to Birmingham.  We stopped to get oil at Wal-Mart and bought the game there, toting it down the highway in pure excitement.
So I'm glad Capcom released the game in HD.  Between the two, I would actually take Resident Evil 0 as opposed to the original's remake.
Anyway, enough babbling.  I'm Live Stream in the game on the PS4 via my gaming channel.
(And yes, I curse while playing games.)

Resident Evil Revelations 2 ~ Episode 4 Gameplay

Strolling through my section of video game uploads, I seemed to have forgotten the upload of my gameplay for Resident Evil Revelations 2 Episode 4: Metamorphosis.  This should subdue the completionist in me.  

Here we'll share the first 2 videos featuring that episode.  For the link to my small (extremely small until I can gather better equipment) gaming channel, click HERE

Let's Play: The Evil Within ~ The Assignment

I’m always hyped and down for a strong female lead in any form of media. So without a doubt, one of the best sources of such is in video games. That’s why I’m really loving The Evil Within’s Juli Kidman, and is extra pleased that she has received two DLC (downloadable content) packages to further her character, as well as the core game's story.

Now I don’t want to get into talking about The Evil Within too much. My brief history is that I finally played the game back in December (picked it up in a Redbox first) and thought it was awesome. Except for a handful of technical and story flaws, it was a thrilling entry in the survivor horror genre. I found myself so wrapped in it that I felt that teenage nostalgia series like Resident Evil and Silent Hill built in me. When I upgraded to a PS4 in February, I decided to get The Evil Within again (there’s nothing really out there to play anyway). So I enjoyed the game a second time. Whether it’s surviving zombie hordes, upgrading for bigger battles, or collecting trophies, The Evil Within remains an unforgettable experience. And that’s how I like my games. I need plenty to go after and strong replay value.

As for the newly release DLC, we switch from the core game’s protagonist, Sebastian, and step into his “partner” Kidman. And she is a treat, stomping around with a hostler and stilettos within gameplay that damn near switches completely away from the core game's methods of survival.  Juli operates off stealth and a flashlight.  She's disarmed for most of her scenarios–while finding herself hunted by one of the most macabre game development creatures ever.  And said creature sends my blood pressure through the roof throughout each encounter.  Which only means I'm enjoying myself.  Still, seeing how one-sided Juli appeared as a character within the core story, her four-chapter package shines a light on how she should be recognized as not only a dynamic character, but also a viable hero to The Evil Within.  Honestly, alone, the revelation concerning her background and how she got into her current situation should breed some kind of sympathy for her. 

I knew there was something more too Juli from the jump.  I remember at her appearance in the opening sequence of the core game how I immediately blurted I'd prefer playing as her.  Her DLC package will do, though.  Here it is with the first part of her chapter, The Assignment. On to my replay of the experience…
