Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Radical Heights Gameplay First Impressions

Gameplay from Boss Key Productions new Battle Royale game, Radical Heights is beginning to surface. The early access is now available for free on Steam and gamers have a lot to say about it. Boss Key Productions is a relatively new developer, founded in 2014 and their most well-known game so far was Lawbreakers. The underwhelming sales and performance of Lawbreakers has gamers uncertain whether or not Radical Heights will be able to catch the gaming world’s attention.

Gameplay from GameSpot

A Redemption Story

Lawbreakers fell flat against other hero based shooters like Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege to name a couple. Now Radical Heights is going up against monstrous Battle Royale games this time around. Fortnite and PUBG have absolutely stole the world’s attention when it comes to the Battle Royale genre and the indie game ‘Darwin Project’ has also captured the imaginations of gamers. Huge hits like Grand Theft Auto V, Overwatch, and the Division all have or had at one time rumors circulating that they’re exploring a Battle Royale mode. Even the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 has seen its share of Battle Royale rumors. Boss Key is up against some heavy hitters and the jury is still out if Radical Heights will be able to find its own spot in this competitive genre.

Exploring the gameplay that’s coming in, Radical Heights has some interesting features that make it stand out. The 80’s game show themed setting gives the entire game a different feel when compared to the other massively popular Battle Royale games on the market today. PUBG’s gritty shooter experience and Fortnite’s cartoony graphics don’t come close to the experience Boss Key Productions created with Radical Heights. If it’s better or worse, that still remains to be seen. However, unique is absolutely the word to describe the setting Boss Key created.

Something A Little Different 

The waiting lobby lets player race with BMX bikes, creating a little more of an interesting pre-game experience. When the match starts and gamers jump into the relatively small map, one of the first things they’ll notice is landing is a bit rougher than Fortnite or PUBG. There is no parachute and instead, the character does a classic 80’s combat roll on landing. It is yet to be seen if this will only be a feature during early access but it actually adds a bit of excitement to the game. Forgoing the parachute allows gamers to get on the ground and into the action quicker. Beyond these interesting additions, the gameplay itself stands out among the current Battle Royale environment.

One of the most exciting features that are unlike the aforementioned Battle Royale games is the cash system. Around the map, there are cash registers and other objects that can be broken open and cash comes falling out. Players accumulate cash to buy guns and gear from vending machine-like objects located around the map. Instead of collecting all the equipment around the map, this new mechanic is an exciting feature. These vending machines have the potential to be a focal point of action and epic battles. There are still health packs and even food that can be found around the map but gear to win games will all come from the vending machines. 

Not only can people buy equipment with the cash they pick up, they can save it for later matches. Players can withdraw or deposit cash at any time during a map at one of the Cash Back machines and can also use the money they earn to purchase cosmetic items in between rounds.

Combat and Final Impressions

The combat is intense, violent, and exhilarating. Fast-paced, the game doesn’t have some of the long lulls that can be found in PUBG’s original two maps. Even though it’s in its early access, the game runs relatively smooth and seems to be put together well. The inside of buildings are a bit bare but the shooting mechanics and gunplay seemed tight and responsive.

Overall Boss Key Productions may have missed the mark with Lawbreakers but Radical Heights has a great chance of leaving a strong impression on the gaming community. Going up against international hits seems to be Boss Key Productions play and if Radical Heights hits big it could redeem the young developer.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is Coming to the North American PS4’s This Year

Yakuza Kiwami 2 is Coming to the North American PS4’s This Year

It won’t be long until fans of the Yakuza series in North America will get to play Kazuma Kiryu’s last chapter, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Although, that’s not the only adventure fans will get to play. Sega recently announced that Yakuza Kiwami 2 will hit PS4’s in the west on August 28th, 2018. Japanese gamers have been able to play Ryu ga Gotoku: Kiwami 2 (the Japanese title for the game) since December of 2017. Kiwami 2 is a remake of the original version of Yakuza 2 that was released for PlayStation 2 back in 2006 in Japan and 2008 in North America.

More Adventures Await!

Yakuza 2 starts one year after the events of the original game, where protagonist Kiryu finds himself in inter-clan related troubles yet again. Struggles inside the Omi alliance turns long-running animosity into a full out war in the series setting of Kamurocho. These issues can all be traced back to a coup within Omi, led by the antagonist Ryuji Goda. The son of an old Tojo chairman returns to the Yakuza way of life to protect the sanctity of the families, and of course, Kiryu will be there to help him out. Everyone’s favorite wild card Goro Majima will also be there to lend a hand.

Fans of the series will recognize many of the faces in the game such as Makoto Date, Osamu Kashiwagi, Haruka Sawamura. A new character by the name of Kaoru Sayama, a Osakan detective, will make her series debut to keep an eye on Kiryu and his accomplices. All of these details are merely the setup for the wild ride that makes up Kiwami 2.

Get Ready for a Wild Ride

A brand new addition to Sega’s’ Kiwami 2 is a whole campaign centered around the Mad Dog called The Truth of Goro Majima. Players will take on the role of the man himself and find out how he became a tycoon of the construction business just before Yakuza 2 starts. Playing as Majima was one of the many highlights of the prequel Yakuza 0, where gamers got to take a personal look into the life of one of the series’ most recognizable characters.

Kiwami 2 uses the new Dragon Engine which is also the foundation of the upcoming Yakuza 6. This engine offers the best graphics the series has to offer and allows players to transition between the street and stores without loading screens, even during fights. Yakuza 2 is set in Tokyo’s fictional red light district of Kamurocho as well as the riverside Osakan town of Sotenbori; both have seen a massive visual boost thanks to the Dragon Engine.

Mini-Games Still Included

The Yakuza series wouldn’t be what it is without the extensive list of mini-games available to distract players. Golf Bingo and Virtual On are just a few examples of these wacky little additions that can be found around town. Players can also expect to see the return of the Cabaret mini-game from Yakuza 0 along with the MVP hostess Yumi, who Kiryu trained himself.

Kiwami 2 will be available for $50 both digitally, physically. Pre-ordered and first run copies of the game will come in a special steel book with artwork of Kazuma Kiryu and Ryuji Goda.

This isn’t the first PS2-era Yakuza game to get remade for the PS4. Yakuza Kiwami came west last year and gave a modern update to the series’ first release. Including additional substories, The Majima Everywhere subplot, and tweaks that made the story easier to understand, they’ve been amazing additions to the Yakuza franchise.

Dragon Ball FighterZ | YouTube Playlist

Fighting games have been around for such a long time and gamers consistently enjoy the challenge they present. Able to be played competitively and also open to the casual player, they’re always a great time for anyone. However, throw in a Dragon Ball element and it opens it up to another huge audience. Dragon Ball FighterZ is being called one of the best Dragon Ball fighting games in years. After multiple missteps, it seems Dragon Ball FighterZ found the right formula to make an exciting and fun Dragon Ball fighting game.

Not only is Dragon Ball FighterZ great for competitive online play, but the single player is something special. Fans of the Dragon Ball franchize will absolutely fall in love with the incredible story. Even those that haven’t watched a single episode of Dragon Ball may actually find themselves falling in love with the series after playing through the single player.

Dragon Ball FighterZ – Playlist

With the game offering such a variety of characters, the story mode being stuffed with content and the multiplayer experience asking for competitive play, Dragon Ball FighterZ is sure to be a source of countless new videos. The crew has been practicing non-stop so they can put on a show when fighting head to head. This fighting game will come second nature for any Street Fighter fans out there so it’ll only take minimal adjustments before feeling comfortable with the controls.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Thank you so much for taking the time to watch! This will be the place to find all the latest episodes added to the Dragon Ball FighterZ playlist. Both Gigs and Mack fell in love with this flashy fighting game so new videos will be coming soon!

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.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – Let’s Play Page

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – Let’s Play Page

The Wolfenstein franchise has been around for over a decade and gamers were ecstatic to hear about this latest title. Staying true to their roots, MachineGames was able to get people excited about a single-player first-person shooter game. The genre has been scarce in modern gaming as most fps’ focus on the multiplayer element of their games and the campaign is usually an afterthought. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus knocked it out of the park with their take on the experience and it could have a bigger impact on the industry as well.

Publishers and developers will be using Wolfenstein 2 as a guide in order to gauge the community’s interest. If this latest Wolfenstein game sells well, it could mean many more single-player first-person shooter games coming to modern consoles soon.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus on YouTube with Gigamax

The game overall is an incredible experience. Fast paced and extraordinary in terms of action, it was able to deliver true entertainment coupled with a fantastic story. America has fallen to the Nazi’s and gamers play as a resistance fighter ready to take back the United States of America. Not only is it an interesting story, it almost intentionally touches on important social issues in real life to pull even more emotion out of the gamer. This is a true patriotic story and it truly is a thrilling adventure.

Even if a gamer never played a previous Wolfenstein, the game does a great job catching people up with the story. A quick and concise recap in the beginning of the game gives people a nice synopsis of the most recent Wolfenstein story ark. The New Colossus is the sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order but it still remains inviting to those that didn’t have a chance to play the first game. MachineGames really did an amazing thing with this latest release.

Dead by Daylight – Halloween Special!

Dead by Daylight – Halloween Horror Special!

The Gigamax crew is celebrating October with a bunch of different scary games and Dead by Daylight is on the list. Sneaking around a bunch of unique monsters while your friends try to start generators might sound easy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Gigs and Mack test their luck and go head to head with some monsters online to see if they have what it takes to survive. For the most part, they don’t but it’s still funny watching them kick and wiggle to stay far away from that meat hook.

Going in relatively blind, the Gigamax crew are bigger fans of Friday the 13th: The Game, but Dead by Daylight shares a lot of similarities with the other indie game. This gave the crew some confidence in their abilities but it soon becomes clear they are in fact two very different games. The fact that the human players can’t fight back dramatically changes the entire pace of the game. It is amazing how much it can make one person panic.

Be sure to stick around for even more Halloween specials throughout the month of October and more episodes of Dead by Daylight as more updates are released. Freddy Krueger has been confirmed so there will absolutely be more episodes in the near future.
