Reviewing The Order 1886! The short review: The Order 1886 is an absolutely beautiful game with an intriguing story line, but asking $60 is a lot when the game can be completed in 6 hours, with zero replay value.
This week on the Short-Takes, a new Rock Band appears to be in the works for the current-gen consoles, the PS4 will wallop the Xbox One by 23 million units over the next few years, the PS TV is just being given away with PS4 purchases, and FFXV is only 60% done, to the chagrin of Max.
Welcome back everyone, after a short mid-season break Alex and Simon are back with a special double length Halo Let's Play where they try and find out how many different ways you can die in a variety of vehicles. Turns out its a lot. Starting this week check in every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for new videos
Microsoft is the star of the show on this week's Short-Takes with its Hololens and major announcements on Xbox integration in Windows 10, but that still leaves room for DayZ sales and Elder Scrolls Online going free-to-play.
Alex and Simon continue into the second half of the game as the Assassin's Credd discussion continues while Alex tries his best to stop getting lost in a game where you can only go forward. The pair also discuss revamps to the site and the Weekend Shorttakes
Alex and Simon take the show on the road as they drive down Tsavo Highway in part 3 of GameDistiller's Halo 3: MCC Let's Play. Along the way, they discuss the success of the Daily Show, its penchant for creating comedic stars, as well as the fiasco that has been The Interview.
Alex and Simon take on the invading covenant in part 2 of their Halo 3 MCC run through. The pair discuss Christmas gifts, the effectiveness of UNSC Marines (as long as they are trying to kill you), and the fact that amazingly there's a new Star Wars movie less than a year away.
