Week 2 of my new Facebook 4 O’Clock Feature brought an eclectic mix of YouTubery from AAA titles to a piece of totally original musical genius (ahem).
It’s been great fun for me to revisit these videos almost a year later and remember how much fun they were to make.
I hope you have fun watching.
4 O’Clock Feature – W/C 16th Feb 2015
Monday 16th Feb: InFamous Second Son – Part 1 “I’m Told That Hurts”
InFamous Second Son was an excellent game that really showcased what the PS4 was capable of graphically. The story was good and the voice cast excellent. However after finishing Second Son I went back and played InFamous 2 on my PS3 and it was a superior game in pretty much every aspect. Story, environments, enemies, scope was just so much grander in InFamous 2. I hope that the next InFamous game is less of a showcase and more a complete game.
Tuesday 17th Feb 2015: Mike Checks Out… Mercenary Kings
A really challenging retro title from Indy developer Tribute Games that got its funding via a successful Kickstarter campaign. Four player split screen co-op and hard as nails game-play made this game a real treat when it appeared as part of the Instant Game Collection in April last year.
Wednesday 18th Feb 2015: Final Fantasy XIV – Chubby Chocobo Song
OK so I love Final Fantasy XIV it’s a brilliant MMO which plays beautifully on PS4. However my favourite thing in FFXIV is the Fat Chocobo mount and here is my musical homage to this brilliant bird.
Thursday 19th Feb 2015: Dragon Age Inquisition “The Wedge of Destiny”
Dragon Age Inquisition made my top 5 games of 2014 and in my wanderings around Ferelden I happened upon this brilliant Easter Egg. I present to you a video showing how you discover the infamous shield ‘The Wedge of Destiny!!!’
Friday 20th Feb 2015: The Last of Us Left Behind – Part 1
Another game that made my top 5 of 2014. This is the first episode of a complete playthrough and what a game it was. It adds so much to Ellie’s character and her motivation and determination in the first game. Do not play it unless you have completed the main game.
I hope you have enjoyed this week’s 4 O’Clock Feature and I will see you all again next week.
