This review contains spoilers. I don't know how to make that spoiler thingy,so I'll add spoiler tag manually :D
By far the most scariest game ever made.
It contains gore scenes that makes you vomit,non-stupid and shit scary NPCs and creepy atmosphere and lots of jumpscares.
Red Barrels have done a fantastic job combining an intensely disquieting setting, a unique visual look, and an incredibly effective camera gimmick to ensure that nobody escapes Mount Massive without a few nightmares.
Only thing I disliked was the ending.
In my opinion,it should've ended after they burned Father Martin.
And I disliked how story changed suddenly,and how you're... dead ?
Red Barrels have announced Outlast 2,and I don't know how they're going to pull it up.
Only thing that comes into my mind is another indie journalist like Miles that creeps in the hallaways full of violent psychos who has a chance to escape several times,but keeps wandering in the hallaways full of violent psychos. lol
Anyways,the best horror game I have played in my entire life (but game itself only,because Amnesia : TDD has lots of mods) :D

Review

As far as early access games Reflections is still, in very, very early access. While it does have a handful of endings and actions to be made, there is a whole lot of content lacking still. But I’m getting a bit ahead of myself. Let’s see here…

Reflections is one of those experimental type of games, it’s purposefully made in a way where you don’t know who exactly you are and what you look like, for it is your actions within the game that decide what ending you will get.
There isn’t that much of a story to be told, I suppose because you’re meant to make most of the story with what you do. You basically start as a teenager who is preparing to leave the family home to head to college, who may or may not have a girl/boyfriend, had a girl/boyfriend, or have a girl/boyfriend and cheat on them (when you start the game it gives you choices on who you’re currently dating, a boy, a girl, or neither; and who you had been dating in the past, and that’s about it). You can move, you can interact with objects by opening/closing doors and drawers, turning on switches, using keys, throwing stuff, etc; and you can walk or run around (though running seems to be a bit sloppy when it comes to turning while you do). For now (it’s unclear if it will remain like this or they will make it faster/slower) you have until nightfall (20 to 30 minutes) to get your affairs in order, and then you’re on your way to act 2, which is a different setting depending on what you chose to do or not do on the first act. Your actions also affect your...
Nope, another one of these is done.
I slowed the tempo of the speaking down and made the voice more hearable overall.
The script is a lot more polished, but the jokes are a bit worse because this game is too mediocre to make any fun of >.<
Also now in glorious 1080P HD, microsoft

I know you are thinking "oh no not this crap again" but i cant let that stop me >.<



Ps. the script of the video is in the description :p

Review

In Holy Potatoes! you take on the role of a potato with a very, very long name whose grandfather has recently died, leaving you as inheritance 0.01% of his weapons shop. This is mainly a management game, your goal is to make weapons and sell them for profit, and there is a little story there to be told.

While the game might look like a mobile port, and the scarce menu might hint to it as well, Holy Potatoes! doesn’t have some of the annoyances other mobile and social type games have: namely the ‘friends’, the ‘coins’ that you buy with real money (at least, they aren’t there for now), nor the energy bar that restricts your playing. By all means, you’re free to grab the game for a five minute of five hours stretch without any lack-of-energy penalty.

What it does lack, and my biggest complaints with the whole thing, are things that the developers seem to be currently working on: A pause button, and the ability to put the game on windowed mode. That is, a windowed mode with more resolutions, for you can alt+enter but it remains at a ridiculously unnecessary large resolution as of current.

Holy Potatoes! has some funny dialogue, cutesy sound bites, ok button sounds, and background music that I personally found annoying enough to mute. The character designs are on the cutesy cartoony side, with some of them and some expressions being far cuter than others, but overall being fairly decent. There’s several references to pop culture (you even get famous adventurers come...

Overview

Canabalt, a mix between catapult and cannonball (At least I am assuming) is an endless platform runner. I don't get much into endless runners, but this is one that caught my eye. From visiting new modes and enemies, it had me playing for a few hours trying to unlock each achievement.

The Gameplay

You are a regular office worker trying to escape aliens. The main character of the game changes appearance each time you die. I have seen about 5 of these characters so I assume that I have seen them all. There is very little control in the game. You start out in a central hub where you select the level type you want to have. You can choose from standard mode where it has all the obstacles stacked up together, or you can face them individually in the satellite levels off the main hub.

There are bombs that randomly drop that will blow you up, robot legs that sweep down buildings, even buildings that crumble beneath you. The toughest of these is jumping into windows of adjacent buildings and escaping them on the other side.

The key bindings are extremely simple in this game. You push space-bar to jump. That is all. The character runs to get away from the alien invasion automatically, and he doesn't slow down. Hitting boxes can trip you up, or help you slow down when you are afraid you might over jump a building and miss.

Summary
Overall I was pleased with this game when it was just flash. I got it in a humble bundle and decided I should put some time into it. There are hard to get achievements, and some require multiplayer which is local. The harder achievements are the 2 hidden ones. Spoiler Alert, they are marathon numbers. You have to get them in both single, and multiplayer. Marathon is only earned on the main level and not a satellite one. You have to get 21,097m and 42,195m to...

Also the DLC is for some crap i have never seen before, but the game is jsut straight out download
This is in no way a serious video, like, it's meant to taunt the game. It's part of the intended humor :p

The game is actually not that bad, too bad i could only play for 5 minutes.
