I’m Kinglink and I think it’s time we take a moment and look back at Humble Choice.
The reason is Humble Choice came out a year ago and I’ve enjoyed reviewing the choice bundles. A year is a good point to do a retrospective and look at what has been put out over that period. Of course, if you want to know about any specific Humble Choice bundle, check my channel.
Humble Bundle has also continued to crank out other deals as well and when I look at reactions, I keep hearing the same thing. People are saying the bundles are getting worse.
To be upfront about it, I’m not a huge fan of a few things going on, and I think there’s a lot of issues with Humble that aren’t getting get talked about. While the bundle quality fluctuates, I think it is more indicative of larger issues going on.
I’m Kinglink and welcome to the Humble Choice January 2021 Review.
So, I hope you like leftovers because that’s what I think we have for you this month.
Like always I’ve played each game for one hour, and I’m here to tell you which games are worth checking out and which games you might want to avoid. Premium and classic subscribers get all the games this month like always, so let’s get started with the list.
Wattam is the newest game from the mind of Keita Takahashi snd similar to his previous two games of Noby Noby Boy, and Katamari Damacy, it’s hard to describe, bizarre, and unique.
Wattam feels mostly like a story where the player has to act out some actions to see the next part. The actions are usually quite simplistic, but it’s the story that brings out the usual charm of Keita Takahashi. Everything in Wattam is colorful and friendly, and it often feels like you’re reading a children’s storybook with bright characters that are always helpful and seldom mean. Even the way Wattam brings up challenges to the character feels similar to the storybooks, such as a telephone base that has lost its telephone receiver, and players are expected to track it down.
I’m Kinglink and…. Well, 2020 sucks, doesn’t it? Let’s just talk about some games?
So for my final video each year, I like to talk about what games I played in a year, and which games were the best that I would recommend to everyone. This year I made a database of every game I played and it’s something I’m trying to do going forward. I ended up with 115 games played outside of games I covered for Humble Bundle, a total of over 250 games.
In 2010, the rather enjoyable Castlevania: Lords of Shadows ended with a major plot twist revealing that Gabriel Belmont was alive during modern times and was now called Dracula, taking on the famous vampire’s persona and visage. This left fans to wonder how the sequel would continue the story, either as Dracula or fighting against the protagonist from the original game. Four years later, Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 answered the question, but it’s a question that probably was more interesting to think about than how Konami approached it.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 chooses to continue with the same protagonist of Gabriel Belmont, now called Dracula, and picks up the story after a second game, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, though it quickly glosses over those stories, even when they play a pivotal point in the development of a few characters.
With the player now in charge of one of the most fearsome vampires, one who the franchise has used multiple times since the beginning, it would be a chance to deliver an interesting look at both the character and mythos at the core of the Castlevania franchise. Instead, Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2 feels like it tries to stay true to the formula the series has embraced with the main character fighting some great evil with numerous minions.
Batman: The Enemy Within is a direct sequel to Batman: The Telltale Series. It also allows players to transfer their save files and continue with their choices from the first game.
This time around Bruce Wayne faces a new story with new villains and a plot to attack Gotham yet again. However, rather than just finding ways for Batman to face off with a rotating list of enemies, The Enemy Within takes the time to examine the character of Batman and try to understand what makes him tick.
I’m Kinglink and this week we’re doing another Head to Head. In this corner, we have Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and in the opposing corner. Well, this is different. We have not one, not two, but three Yakuza games starring Kiryu Kazuma.
So this week we’re going to be talking a lot about Yakuza but this is an interesting match up. I wanted to look at how the all-new Yakuza: Like a Dragon compares to the first three Yakuza games, 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2, also known as what’s currently available on PC. Sega… fix that.
Yeah, that line didn’t age well, I wrote this script before Sega announced the news. It sounds like EVERY mainline Yakuza game will be on PC by March 25th next year and on Xbox One as well. This doesn’t invalidate anything I say in this video and technically, there are only four Yakuza games on PC as I wrote this.
I’m Kinglink and it’s the first week of December which means it’s time for the Humble Choice December 2020 Review.
There are a few new twists this month. Once again, Humble is giving all the games for premium and classic subscribers, but this time there are fourteen games! Not a bad change. Also if you are a new subscriber, or just appear to be, you get a free month of EA Play Plus, which… honestly, isn’t a bad deal.
Link: I’m Kinglink and this week I feel like talking about some co-op games. Maybe it’s the perfect time to do a collab, but I’ll be honest, I’m not sure who to team up with.
Of course, the co-op games that I enjoy are couch co-op, something about both players being in the same room and the ability to talk strategy as you play makes me enjoy it so much more. So I guess I’m going to have to find someone in my house. Introducing my daughter Daylyn
Daylyn: Hello, so with 2020 happening a lot of stuff is changing, one major change for our family is that I have been playing more games to pass the time and relax.
Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise is a “puzzle adventure” game which means that it combines a typical puzzle game with a stronger focus on the story. The player takes on the role of the silent “Agent A”, a secret agent on the trail of a nefarious villain, Ruby La Rouge.
Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise is split up into five chapters, each focused on a different section of the story, but the entire game revolves around infiltrating and capturing Ruby La Rouge. To do this, players will have to solve a variety of puzzles and find several secrets in La Rouge’s private getaway.
