How Outer Wilds Works? Why does it’s exploration surpass Outer Worlds and No Man’s Sky?

Hello I’m Kinglink and today we’re going to talk about How Outer Wilds work?

Outer Wilds is a game released last year by Mobius Digital. If you haven’t played it, it’s a space exploration game. Your player is an astronaut and they also are about to be given a spacecraft to go to other planets in the star system and explore the worlds you find.

Now before we dive in here, I’m going to theme this video with a focus on space exploration. I’m going to be talking about Outer Worlds a bit, which is a game from Obsidian Entertainment. But there’s another example we’re going to talk about. If we say large scale exploration, is there a specific game that comes to mind? One not regarded too well? For me, I have to talk about No Man’s Sky by Hello Games. It’s just the perfect example of how not to do exploration.

How Shovel Knight works? The proper way to do episodic DLC

The following is a script from the youtube video below, feel free to watch it, or read the script as you wish.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and today we’re going to talk about How Shovel Knight Works?

That is a pretty broad topic and Shovel Knight is a huge game that I probably could do a couple of videos on if I wanted. The story of their Kickstarter is equal parts problematic and joyous. The game design of the original game is unique and amazing, and worthy of a ton of praise, and the nostalgia that the game evokes and yet improves on is close to perfection.

For today, as the title says, we’re going to focus on the episodic nature of the DLC for Shovel Knight. It’s well done, impressive, and is a perfect set of blueprints of how this type of content can work. Yacht Club Games created something new and special with their original game Shovel Knight and has done the same for each of the DLCs of what was eventually named the Shovel Knight Treasure Trove.

Feburary 2020 Reviews – Ace Combat 7, Yooka Layle and the Impossible Lair, and Outer Wilds

Hello. I’m Kinglink and today, we’re going to do a review wrap up for February 2020.

If you’ve been a fan of my channel for long, or at least read my user name, you know I started this channel by reviewing games. Recently I have begun to cover game mechanics more and talking about what really makes a game stand out in its genre or from other games.

At the same time, I still enjoy playing games and reviewing them. Along with my game mechanics videos, I think I’m going to try to make time for a review wrap up, talk about what I’ve played in the last month or two, as well as recommend some games, and tell you which I would avoid.

How Void Bastards Work? A roguelite that teaches players how it wants to be played.

THE FOLLOWING IS A SCRIPT FOR THE YOUTUBE VIDEO PUBLISHED BEFORE.  YOU CAN READ THE SCRIPT OR WATCH THE VIDEO AS YOU SEE FIT.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and today we’re going to talk about “How Void Bastards Works?”

Void Bastards is a new game from Blue Manchu and published by Humble Bundle. It keeps getting talked about far more than most Roguelites and after playing through it I think I kind of understand. It’s extremely well-paced and interesting, as well as having a great aesthetic and gameplay that stands out.

Outer Worlds Review

The following is a script to the youtube video below.  Feel free to read or watch the review in either format.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and it’s time to talk about Outer Worlds, developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Private Division. Private Division may be a new company to most of you, it was to me, but it’s actually just Take 2’s indie arm of publishing.

Outer Worlds can simply be called Fallout but in space. It’s definitely a game similar to Fallout and that might have been the original pitch, but this time instead of a single open world, we have multiple planets and even zones on them, as well as a more futuristic weapon set. At least that’s the idea of the game.

Sunset Overdrive – Insomniac invents something new and fresh

THE FOLLOWING IS A YOUTUBE SCRIPT. YOU CAN READ THE SCRIPT OR CHECK OUT THE VIDEO IF YOU PREFER.

Hello, I’m Kinglink and this is my review of Sunset Overdrive, created by Insomniac Games, and published by Xbox Games Studio.

Insomniac is well known. They’re the developers who made Ratchet and Clank, Resistance, Spyro, and of course Marvel’s Spider-man. Remember to respect the hyphen. They have been a solid developer over their career, with fun and inventive gameplay. Sunset Overdrive is the first game from them on a Microsoft console and it was the first one on PC, so let’s take a look at Sunset Overdrive
