PolyNerdic Plays: Deadly Premonition

This game has its hooks in me and won’t let go.

The legendary cult classic is every bit as terrible and wonderful as I was told it was and I’m so happy to be on this ride and even happier to have the opportunity to share it with you.

PolyNerdic Plays: Deadly Premonition

Spent a fair bit of time on Sunday working my way through the cult classic Deadly Premonition.

So far this game has been everything I expected and wanted it to be: homage to Twin Peaks, weird, silly, terrible and perfect.

Enjoy the next 90 minutes of the game.

PolyNerdic Plays: Deadly Premonition

When Deadly Premonition was released on the PS3 way back in 2010 I did not own a PS3 and could not play it.

But the legend of the schlocky, silly and absurd homage to Twin Peaks and survival horror has steadily grown over the last decade and now that the game is out on Switch (and on sale as of 7/10/2020) I couldn’t resist taking a look at it.

I only played an hour but I was absolutely not disappointed.

This game is delightfully bad and I can’t wait to play more.

Favorite Games of the 1st Half of 2020: The OrNERDnary Podcast #162

2020 has been a hell of a terrible year, some might say the worst year of recent history, certainly worse than the previous handful.

Pandemics, economic failure, civil unrest.

But at least there have been some damn fine video games in the first six months of the year.

And this week I bring you a discussion of my favorite games of the year’s first half.

Also discussed this week:
-CrossCode
-The Batman who Laughs
-Food Wars
-Bleach
-Fallout 76 on Game Pass
-Minecraft
-PS5 box art style revealed
-New Superhot coming next week
-And more

Enjoy.

PolyNerdic Plays: Fallout 76

Anyone who knows me knows I love the Fallout franchise.

New Vegas is my favorite.

Fallout 3 was great.

Fallout 4 was good but could have been better.

When I heard that Fallout 76 was going to be a multiplayer Fallout game I was initially excited but the game that came out was riddled with issues and the lack of NPCs led to me deciding against putting my hard earned $60 down.

Flash forward to 7/9/2020 and Fallout 76 has come to Xbox Game Pass and the Wastelanders update has added NPCs and associated quests to the game.

We have ourselves a janky, multiplayer Fallout just like I wanted.

PolyNerdic Play Test: CrossCode

CrossCode is a game I’ve been hoping to get my hands on for a very long time, originally released on PC in 2015, it just came to PS4, Switch and Xbox on 7/9/2020.

Most importantly it was available on Game Pass and you know I love that service.

CrossCode puts you in the shoes of Lea, an avatar in the game world known as CrossWorld in the area known as The Playground.  Lea is a Spheromancer, meaning she attacks primarily with energy orbs.  Lea has gaps in her memory and is largely unable to talk when the game opens and it appears that a large part of the story is unraveling that mystery.

The game looks and feels a lot like a classic SNES action RPG and I absolutely adore the look and feel of it.  Expect to see it more around here as I work my way through it.

My One Good Match from Last Night

No Movie Tonight, Doing Something Different

As you may well know for the last several weeks Thursday nights have been movie night here at PolyNerdic.com….or rather at Twitch.tv/polynerdic.

Last week our internet was bad and we couldn’t watch Clue as planned.

And this week a bunch of the movies I had selected as the pool for random selections have been taken off Prime Video.  Additionally I’m still focused on making Affiliate status on Twitch which I don’t believe the watch parties counted towards.

So this week we won’t be doing the PolyNerdic Viewing Party on Twitch on Thursday Night, we might do one this weekend but for now I’m considering ceasing the Thursday night shows of this kind.

Instead of the PolyNerdic Viewing Party we’ll be streaming a couple new arrivals on Game Pass: Fallout 76 and CrossCode.

Fallout 76 is the online multiplayer version of Fallout, a game that is either utterly loved or completely despised and I’m anxious to get my hands on it for the first time.

CrossCode is an action RPG with a beautiful pixelly art style set in a fact MMORPG where the player character cannot log-off.

I can’t wait to play these games on stream tonight.  I might even give myself 2 hours for each.

See you there.
