Rambo The Video Game + Baker Team DLC

Rambo The Video Game + Baker Team DLC

If you love Rambo and incredible ’80s action, then Rambo: The Video Game is exactly the game you’re looking for.

As soon as Rambo: The Video Game was announced, I was ecstatic. The trailer made the game seem like nothing but balls-to-the-walls action, recreating all the kick-ass Rambo shit that Rambo did in the Rambo movies. It was seemingly going to be everything I had ever wanted a Rambo game to be, going all the way back to 1988 when I spied the cover of the Rambo NES game and imagined what treasures the game might hold. That game did not live up to my internal hype, but Teyon’s Rambo: The Video Game didn’t just live up to my huge, unrealistic expectations, it shot an explosive arrow directly into their heart and machine-gunned them as they begged for mercy.

I am a huge fan of Rambo. I have read “First Blood,” and own all four movies. When this game was first released it flew under my radar until I saw it on a worst-of-2014 list of video games. Apparently it belonged to many worst-of-year lists. I had a PS3 (still do) and didn’t want to take up hard drive space downloading the Steam game, so I got the PS3 version instead for cheap just to see if it was that bad. I was pleasantly surprised that it followed very closely the storyline and atmosphere of the first three movies. I personally enjoy on-rails shooters and I quickly became addicted to this game! Amazingly despite the negative reviews the developers included a DLC, Baker Company, with the game two years after its release. Unfortunately they apparently sent it to the Playstation Store for upload but for one reason or another it never got posted online. I checked it earlier today: there is a version 1.01 patch but no Baker Company DLC available, and you apparently can’t even buy Rambo there anymore. :-(

Although very simple, the game’s proposal is very solid “Distribute the weights in the remaining blocks”. It was a longer game play than I expected, but it was a plus for me as the game has a window mode so I just played casually while doing other things.

Assassin’s Creed® Rogue

Assassin’s Creed® Rogue

The same year, when AC Unity was released, Ubisoft gave us another Assassin’s Creed game. Rogue completes the North-American Trilogy with AC III and AC IV, and turns as well into the story of Unity.

When you start playing Rogue you could have the feeling to play Black Flag in another setting. It is located during the Seven Years War, and the character we play is Shay Patrick Cormac, a young assassin who is still learning , but also questioning if everything the assassins teach him is the truth. After he was sent on a special mission and made fatefull experience, he decides to leave the Brotherhood of Assassins and finds after that his way to the Order of the Templars. This is the first AC game in which we play a templar most of the time during the story. There aren’t any historical persons, but many other ones you already know from AC III, AC IV and Unity as well.

Did you think Black Flag was the utmost heights that Pirate vs. Ninja combat could climb to? Were you under the (foolish) impression that Ubisoft(in the head) couldn’t further refine the ship combat introduced in AC3 and then perfected in Black Flag? Did you skip this game thinking it’s just ANOTHER reskin of Black Flag?

If you answered yes to any of these questions - then you are REALLY missing out.

The first thing most players say about Rogue is that it’s shorter than Black Flag. That isn’t quite true - Black Flag was a sweeping epic spread out across several years; all leading up to AC3. Rogue is more self-contained and (dare I say it?) streamlined than Black Flag. Take a couple of weeks off from playing Black Flag - you’re likely to forget the story when you start it up again. Rogue is all-involving. The plot is a lot more personal. It does something that no other AC game has done before… and shows the story from the BAD GUY point of view. Not only that, but it does it in a way that makes YOUR character a good guy (well, as good as a guy can be when he’s a member of a top secret murder cult) while still ticking all the bad guy tropes. Best of all, it actually SHOWS the good guys (again, murder cult) the heroes - as villains without MAKING them villains. This whole story - by and large - is a series of misunderstandings. Arrogance. Mistakes and one man (the main character) trying to clean up afterwards.
