Hello my fellow PoTAYtoes, Nach here... covering for the absent Fyst. Lately I've had enough free time to catch up on lots of games I've been wanting to play, with journeys ranging from trippy and psychedelic (Hotline Miami) to charming and beautiful (Enslaved), but there's one game in my backlog who presents me with one of the most genuine universe I've chartered recently... before jumping on today's topic let's see what our TAY round up brought us today:
- Zarnyx goes for an adventure at... her local McDonalds, a quest filled of disappointing burgers and printed boxes!
- Marsh Naylor plays through the beta version of Out There so you don't have to... go out there...
- Voltaire Crescent returns with a new journey into the world of FF:XIV!
As I browsed through my backlog I noticed I have not finished Sleeping Dogs, actually let me correct that, I have not finished Sleeping Dogs on my PS3, since the first time I played it was on a friend's Xbox 360, and the first thing that hit me back then was how livid the city of Hong Kong was, on the first mission you're walking the aisles of the city in the middle of a festival, all the lights, the fireworks, the neon signs, but what really caught me was noise, it really made you feel like you were in Hong Kong, you could hear the vendors on the street yelling at you ("A man who never eats pork bun is never a whole man"[thanks Ellen]), or people yelling in Cantonese whenever you bumped into them. The game capture the atmosphere of a big city in those first 5 minutes... which leads me to the question...
What's your favourite first sequence/segment/mission in any game you've played recently?
