Monster Hunter Gameplay – YouTube Playlist

Monster Hunter Gigamax Games YouTube Playlist

With a brand new Monster Hunter coming to PlayStation 4, it was time to update the Monster Hunter Playlist. The Demo for Monster Hunter: World was available for a limited time and the Gigamax crew was lucky enough to give it a try. It was amazing to see what the PlayStation 4 can do for this iconic series. The gameplay was unlike any previous game and it only made the gaming community more excited for the full release.

This is where the relatively new insect glaive goes to work on one of the most iconic boss variations from the series. Those familiar with the franchise will instantly recognize the classic dinosaur but might not have had the chance to play with this weapon. Unfortunately, Gigs and Mack have no idea which stance they’re using as all the text is still in Japanese. Well, not all of it, which they found incredibly confusing.

Porting the Japanese Demo to the North American Nintendo Switch isn’t a complicated process at all! The walkthrough is clear and concise and if you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment and Gigs or Mack will get right back to you.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 has delivered dozens of hours of excitement so far and there’s still a ton to go. Even with some of the sub-par reviews this game received because of the fan service, it’s still a quality experience. It shouldn’t turn people away if they’re looking for a great, classic feeling JRPG.  Both Gigs and Mack are engrossed in the story and gameplay, glued to the Nintendo Switch with no chance of slowing up soon.

The Nintendo Switch has been killing it with games this year. Developers, publishers, and gamers alike are surprised about its success. Even with the reviewers taking off points, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is still a grand experience any JRPG fan can enjoy.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 – The Unfortunate Story of Fan Service

Walking through this gigantic game, the Gigamax crew is blown away by the story. Pulling every trope from the book of anime tropes, they somehow feel right at home. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 embraced many more anime elements when compared to the previous series. This kind of art style and narrative direction are right up Gigs and Macks alley.

Again, this game holds true to many of the JRPG elements that make the genre so great but oftentimes also keeps people at bay. There is very little hold handing and it’s relatively text-heavy. If these kind of games are for you, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 might be worth considering.

Very Early Impressions: The Darwin Project

Very Early Impressions: The Darwin Project

After spending a long chilly night with The Darwin Project, we’ve determined that the future for this new indie survival experience look bright, but there is obviously much work is left to be done. Scavengers Studio was kind enough to send us an Alpha key for their upcoming Battle Royale style game and the small team of 17 has pulled off quite an impressive feat. They have managed to build an original experience in a genre that seemed doomed to 100 player rounds on massive islands. This was achieved through focusing on the survival and crafting features that are often times ignored in this style of game. Could The Darwin Project be the title that steers the genre in a new direction?

The Darwin Project, latest games, alpha games, early access, gigamax, gigamax games, gameplay

Let’s Take A Closer Look

From the start, this game is a much more contained experience. Seven competitors enter the ring to fight for their lives in a very “Hunger Games” like situation. Much like PUBG and Fortnite, players are dropped into a lobby that allows those participating some time to converse and get a feel for the competition while also given full freedom to hit each other with axes and arrows. After the countdown is up those competing are dropped into a ring that is made up of seven hexagons each representing a zone. Players are spawned in on their own portion of the map (hexagon) and the games begin. Right off the bat players will realize that to survive the harsh frozen climate, they will need a fire. This is where The Darwin Project distinguishes itself from the main players in the genre.

The Darwin Project, latest games, alpha games, early access, gigamax, gigamax games, gameplay

It’s All About Survival 

Survival is at the forefront of this experience and if ignored, you can never hope to see the end of a match. As of now, chopping down wood and tearing apart leather sofas is the primary means of collecting resources. These actions result in materials that can be fashioned into a variety of tools that can be used to get ahead of the competition. Craftables include axe/bow upgrades, jackets to prevent freezing to death, speed improvements, and a variety of “tech” that needs the elusive electronic resources. These bizarre future upgrades can be made by collecting a piece of technology that randomly spawns around the map at various times throughout the match. The only catch to this is players are all made aware of the spawn location turning the hunt into a race, for this game-changing resource. Some examples of tools that can be fashioned out of this equipment are turrets, over shields, and teleporters.

Currently, the survival aspect is very fun but needs to be fleshed out more and while the combat can be exciting it feels a little too quick and sporadic for the slow and steady nature of the hunting and gathering you do before engaging an opponent. Luckily survival isn’t all that sets this game apart.

Show Director Mode

The other major way Scavengers Studio is making The Darwin Project its own idea is through the game’s “Show Director Mode.” The eighth player is not a competitor on the battlefield, but instead a robot that can fly around the arena and cause havoc for the fighters. Some examples of their powers include swapping players positions or dropping bombs that disrupt the action from time to time. Overall, it is a nice twist that is still in its early stages but has a lot of potentials to truly set the game apart and maybe create a new sub-genre.

While The Darwin Project may still be very early in development, its Alpha seemed more fleshed out than most Betas that are released today. The graphics style is original and gameplay has plenty of room to become something great. This indie game has tons of potential and we can’t wait to see how the talented team at Scavengers Studio refines their experience, especially when the Battle Royale genre has grown so stagnant. Gameplay footage Gigamax recorded will be available soon so be sure to keep your eye on GigamaxGames.com for more information on The Darwin Project!

Call of Duty: World War II | Let’s Play Page

Call of Duty: World War II | Let’s Play Page

Another year has passed and that means a brand new Call of Duty for gamers around the world. The series has faced some harsh criticism in recent years but is still able to maintain a loyal fan base. People were sick and tired of running on walls future warfare and there was finally a change after so many years. Sledgehammer Games brings the Call of Duty franchise back to their origins with Call of Duty: WWII.

Call of Duty: World War II | on YouTube with Gigamax


The recent game met mixed reviews but the market told a different story. Selling more than Advanced Warfare, the game seems destined to leave a strong legacy. Its campaign was something out of an HBO special, depicting a classic story of the WWII American hero. Faced with adversity and tremendous obstacles, he has to dig deep to get through the horrors of this chaotic war.

Classic CoD Multiplayer

Multiplayer is the classic Call of Duty experience everyone has come to enjoy. The fast-paced action and minimal downtime keep gamers coming back for more. Eliminating running on walls and all those other future antics keeps things on an even playing field, creating a much more enjoyable experience overall.

Can’t Forget Zombie Mode

Zombie mode has come a long way since its inception. The intricate map and unique boss takes a while to get through but it’s rewarding nonetheless. Recently the Gigamax crew was able to work their way through this treacherous Zombie mode so there’s something special coming soon. Be sure to check back here for the Zombie tutorial!

Thank You For Stopping By!

Don’t forget to check in with this playlist page for even more Call of Duty: WWII episodes. From playthroughs to tutorials, the Gigamax crew has big plans for the future of this game!

The Evil Within 2 – Horror Special!

The Evil Within 2 – Horror Special!

The Evil Within 2 came out on Friday the 13th, 2017 and its timing was no accident. Developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda, they truly captured the psychological horror the first game created so well. Starting out with a more focused mission, the familiar faces and unfamiliar environments create the perfect atmosphere for this time of year. With Halloween right around the corner, the Gigamax crew thought this was the perfect game to celebrate the holiday season and The Evil Within 2 is a great fit.

Now that The Evil Within 2 playlist is up and going, be sure to stay tuned for new episodes as Gigs and Mack work their way through this terrifying adventure. Gigs offers some pro-tips and Mack watches on, sweating and scared for their lives. One thing this game does very well is making sure the player never feels safe, not even the safe rooms can protect the gamer from the horrors of this world.

The Evil Within 2  [Gameplay and Survival Tips] on YouTube

Each step forward opens up the opportunity for anything to happen. The fact that The Evil Within 2 took all the terrifying elements from the first but completely left the liner story behind and instead changed to an open world gives the game a completely different feel. The open world leaves everything to chance and gives the player a feeling that they are in control in a world where nothing can be controlled. This makeup gives this horror game it’s extremely unique feel.

When they heard Fire Emblem Warriors would be a unique take on the game, they couldn’t wait to get their hands on the upcoming Nintendo Switch version. However, it was some time before the game was released in North America so the Gigamax crew unlocked the Japanese version. Even though they couldn’t tell what people were saying, the game overshadowed the confusion.

City of Brass – Uppercut Games Playlist

City of Brass – Uppercut Games Playlist

Uppercut Games was generous enough to offer the Gigamax crew a beta key to try out their latest Rogue-Like game, City of Brass. This Indiana Jones meets Bioshock adventure was something special from the very beginning. The environments and simplistic gameplay mixed with sneaky traps and dangerous enemies kept things interesting every step of the way. City of Brass may be simple at heart but the level design is spectacular.

city of brass, gameplay, youtuber, youtube, gigamax, gigamax games, city of brass uppercut games, uppercut games

It begins with the character spawning in and it’s all on from there. With no quests or missions, the goal is to make it to the end of the level and advance to the next stage. Each stage is riddled with booby traps, skeleton enemies, and treasures beyond your wildest dreams. The treasure is used to purchase upgrades from the genies located throughout the map. Players have an objective arrow that will guide them to the end of the level, they’re also timed so it’s important to keep moving.

City of Brass Is A Hidden Gem

This hidden gem of a game didn’t get much attention by the media. This is surprising considering it was developed with the help of ex-Bioshock developers. Overall the game came out great and the Gigamax crew is excited to keep on working their way through the unique levels and fight the bosses along the way. There’s no telling what other secrets are hidden throughout the City of Brass. As any fan of Rogue-like games knows, there is always a new, exciting experience to be had.

Destiny 2: Was It Worth The Hype?

Destiny 2: Was It Worth The Hype?

Many players had a strange relationship with the first Destiny. Bungie told people to expect a 10-year game that will continuously grow and improve as time went on. However, this was far from the truth. The original Destiny left a bad taste in many gamers mouths, feeling as though it was disrespecting the players time and just adding enough content to string people along. Some loved the game, but there is no doubt that the game, at its core, was seriously flawed but now all eyes are on Destiny 2.

Destiny 2, review, gameplay, video, update, destiny, gaming, gigamax, gigamax games, video game news, video games

The Worry Was Real

This left gamers worried if Destiny 2 had the potential to save the franchise. When people found out all of their hard earned rewards would be stripped away and then be forced to start from scratch, it wasn’t the best introduction. But to the surprise of many Destiny 2 and the developers at Bungie took the community’s criticism of the first game to heart and it shows in a big way.

Destiny 2 – Nightfall Strike [Gigamax PowerHour]

One of the main issues with original Destiny was the lack of rewards and the countless hours spent on repetitive grinding to receive any piece of worthwhile gear. This was far beyond the expected grind in this kind of ‘open’ exploration game. Bungie seemed to put all their chips in the exquisite gunplay and ignore a fully fleshed out campaign or any substance when it came to the grind. Running around a small map searching for chests that spawn in the same location on a timer is not an exciting gaming experience.

Destiny 2 May Have Done It

Destiny 2 is a monumental improvement over the original. Even though players have to start from scratch, the intro of the game provides a nice flashback of their time in the original. Milestones are remembered with a slideshow once a player starts the game, showing off their greatest achievements and even lists the players that were in the group when completed. This short but sweet ode to your original Destiny fireteams was the right kind of send off for the misstep that was Destiny.

Destiny 2, review, gameplay, video, update, destiny, gaming, gigamax, gigamax games, video game news, video games

Even those that truly enjoyed the original Destiny have said it felt as though it was just one big beta for Destiny 2. Bungie did it right with this latest installment. Each planet has a more robust environment giving the sensation of being alive, more so than anything the original ever offered. The amount of story, strikes, and content offered at launch puts the original to shame and is an incredible indicator of things to come. The story evoked emotions and NPC’s have relatable personalities. With Bungie stating that they will be adding content much more regularly, one can only imagine where it will go from here. 

Overall Bungie redeemed themselves with Destiny 2. This latest title truly shows that the developers listened to their audience and put some real thought into the new game.  It feels as though this is just the beginning for one of the most highly anticipated shooters in history. If Destiny was able to reach impressive heights with lackluster content, there’s no telling how far the second game can go.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy – Let’s Play Page

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy – Let’s Play Page

In a unique move by the developer Naughty Dog, they released an intermediate Uncharted game called Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Starring Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross, it takes the player on a journey through the jungles of India on an adventure to remember. This thrilling ride provides the action and excitement expected from an Uncharted game but the two different main characters offer a different perspective and it came together wonderfully.

With a pricepoint of $40 dollars, people were worried how much content will actually be available. These fears have become half truths because the game isn’t as long as a traditional Uncharted game. However, with the first playthrough taking 7 hours and 20 minutes, it absolutely provides a fulfilling experience.

 

Naughty Dog Does It Again

Traversing through the rainforest and mountainous landscapes was absolutely spectacular.
