Resident Evil 4: HD Edition to feature subtitles?

While it’s not new information that Resident Evil 4: HD Edition will be released at end of February at  £14.99 price, it’s still worth to mention – especially as this is good news for deaf gamers.

You can see the subtitles section being ticked – and the last bit in Key Features:

This new PC version will include everything from the prior iterations including subtitle support in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish as well as previously released bonus content such as the Separate Ways epilogue.

So does this mean we’ll be able to have full subtitles for Resident Evil 4? While it may mean the radio calls (they were subtitled in original versions), it does seem to make point that it’ll feature full subtitles. Will keep my eye on this, at least!

Indie Gala January Bundle – First of four games announced: Deadly Premonition

So Indie Gala has just revealed one of four games which is Deadly Premonition and people can get it (if they pay more than current average that is) right now.

Honestly, even if you don’t think other games are good enough to bite on bundle right now, I’d go for this now! Deadly Premonition is really amazing game, it’s very cheesy and “B-rated” game, it feels and plays like Playstation 2 game at best but it’s also REALLY fun. Shame I already bought my own copy on Steam Christmas sale, so I don’t need extra copy but it’s still fantastic additional to decent bundle.

This is a chance for you if you always wanted to try the game out, but wasn’t sure on idea of paying full price for it. 

Estranged Act 1 – My opinions

Okay, I’ve just completed the game, here’s what I posted on Steam itself on the game:

When I saw the screenshots, I was hoping it’d be one of these adventure games where you don’t shoot your way to end, but rather taking your time exploration and stuff like that.

Only for me to be little mislead… well you don’t really gun your way out until later on in game, and it doesn’t really last long (nor hard, it’s fairly easy as you play it carefully) but the starting is really good in eerie way, and the graphics are pretty great.

For deaf gamers, you’ll be glad it has closed captions, but then again this is Half Life 2 mod and Half Life 2 games has been amazing for those who are deaf / hard of hearing.

Overall, if I’d have to be bluntly honest, it’s nothing too special but personally as it was free, and I had fun of three hours (two play throughs, one natural another achievements) and the story (from what there is anyway) seems pretty decent, although I’d assume Act II is when it’ll shine.

So yeah, if you happen to enjoy adventure games with little amount of gunplay and mainly exploration/the story, give it a try at least. It’s free, so it’s not hurting your wallet anyway.

Estranged (Act I) – Free Half Life 2 Mod

Image

Just noticed this game is released on Steam, apparently it was on GreenLight but somehow I missed it. It’s basically free Half Life 2 mod, and from what I gather, it’s basically adventure games so I’ve given it a download; may post my impressions later on. In meantime here’s full information from store page:

Estranged tells the story of a lone fisherman, whose ship is stranded on a mysterious island during a violent storm.

Explore the rich environments and meet the curious inhabitants of the island as you find a way back to the mainland. Face both danger and intrigue in this perilous adventure, where you will soon find that not everything is as normal as it seems.

And here’s the trailer (although it does seem to have some spoilers, watch at your own risk)

I’ve been always wanting more adventure games that focuses on exploration/story so this looks like good game for that.

The Indie Gala January

Right now, over at Indie Gala (Think Humble Bundle, but different people), you can pay $3.99 $5+ for the following lot (of course, if you donate more that’d be cool for charity and such) at this time of post:

  • Ravensword: Shadowlands
  • Gravity Badgers
  • Tales Of Maj’Eyal
  • Ballpoint Univers Infinite
  • Two Brothers
  • Laxius Force Not on Steam yet
  • Millennium – A New Hope Not on Steam yet

Also there’ll be four more Steam games to come – which ones is unknown at time – but not too bad considering I liked the look of Ravensword, Ballpoint Universe Infinite and Two Brothers.

EDIT: $3.99 promotion is over, you’ll need to pay $5+ if you want the extra games.
