Outlander Video Game

Outlander_Video_GameBack in the day my brother loved to play the Sega Genesis version of the game Outlander.  When playing it we wouldn’t get every far.  It was a tough game.  All so we didn’t understand what was going on.  Well all these years later.  Thanks to emulation and save states.  Also years of gaming.  It still tough but makes senses.

If you never seen it before.  It looks like that Mad Max movie.  After looking up info on the game.  Found out was being developed as a Mad Max game. But they lost the license.  So they changed the name.  What makes this game standout.  Is there are two different game play styles.  First you are driving.  Avoiding things and shooting at the bad guys.  Then at points in the game you have to pull over.  Then the game switches to on foot.  Where you beat up/shoot the bad guys to get supplies.  However at any time you can pull over.  It is you just might not get enough supplies. It is any interesting game.  Just every repetitive.

POLYMEGA

POLYMEGABack in February (2017) learned about a cool new device that would let you play your classic video games on new TV’s.  It was called RetroBlox.  They have since changed their name to POLYMEGA.   There are all kinds of devices that do this does. What makes this one standout.  It doesn’t emulate the games.  It reads them like the original machines do.  The other big differences is the modules.  Which they call Element Modules.  The base unit has a optical disc drive.  Which you can play PlayStation one, TurboGrafx-CD, Sega Cd and Neo Geo CD games.  On the base unit you place the modules.  There are ones for NES, SNES, Genesis and TurboGrafx-16.  You can use the controller that comes with it.  Or you can plug in your classic controllers that go along with ever module you using.

There is know news on a price point for the base your modules yet or when it will be out.  It does look and sound pretty cool.  Don’t think it for everyone. But if you are into colleting retro games or have some games you would like to play again.  It could be a great option.

The trend continues.  Every month this year there has been a flash sale on the PlayStation Store.  Just like the other sales.  It covers the three platforms as well as movies/TV.  There seems to be wide mix of games.  There are some that have been on sale before.  Which kind of sucks.  However there are lots that haven’t been is these flash sales before.  Think the best deals are for the PlayStation 3.  The sales starts today (June 23, 2017) and ends on the 26th.  You can see the full list > here.
