Freakzone’s compilation appears like a re-release accomplished proper.
They’ve each been out for a good whereas, however I’ve all the time thought-about Offended Video Sport Nerd Adventures and its sequel ASSimilation (geddit??) to be among the many greatest throwback video games launched within the final decade or so. Taking management of the AVGN himself, James Rolfe, you platform-shot your manner by way of phases based mostly on the favored net sequence – which, like it or hate it, was very a lot formative for contemporary gaming YouTube.
Excitingly, then, each AVGN video games are coming to fashionable techniques within the expanded re-release AVGN Adventures 1 & 2 Deluxe, bringing the sequel to consoles for the primary time whereas additionally giving the unique a particularly contemporary coat of paint, to the purpose of being remade from scratch within the second recreation’s engine. And a far superior engine it’s. Smoother, higher feeling controls, nicer graphics and results… to not point out the myriad enhancements to the extent design. Whereas I loved the ramshackle nails-hard attraction of AVGN Adventures in its unique kind, this new model appears to be a wholesale enchancment.
The brand new regular problem, whereas nonetheless extraordinarily tough, has been made resolutely fairer to mitigate the less-than-ideal frustration that corridors filled with disappearing and reappearing instantaneous demise cranium blocks would initially trigger. There are additional delicate tweaks to the extent design that make the entire expertise simply that contact breezier, and plenty of of them may be seen on this developer walkthrough.
It is fairly simple to be cynical about AVGN Adventures, however even when you tried the primary recreation on Nintendo techniques and did not dig it, you must take a look at the vastly improved sequel. Additionally, the unique being introduced updated (so to talk) is a deal with I did not know I wished. Moreover, Freakzone have teased some type of third included recreation, or some type of secret. Looks like this one has a lot extra to supply.
Additionally, they took out the Nostalgia Critic! Hooray!
