Now Playing: October 2015

nowplaying1015

I hope you’re enjoying the Halloween season like I am. To recap my Halloween Gaming Event, I played and finished Demon’s Souls. I’ve also been playing through Evil Dead: Regeneration on the PlayStation 2.

Out of the total of ten levels in Evil Dead: Regeneration, I’ve completed seven of them so far. Despite the Halloween season has come to a conclusion for this year, I will be seeing this game to the end. About halfway through the game you get a harpoon and rocket launcher in place of the classic chainsaw and they’ve made combat quite entertaining. Ash’s sidekick, Sam, can be killed as many times as necessary and it’s usually with hilarious results.

While Evil Dead: Regeneration will never be on anyone’s best games list. It certainly isn’t going to be on the worst of list either. I guess that’s high praise enough.

An Evil Dead Halloween

I decided to play another game since I finished up Demon’s Souls more quickly than I expected I would. I selected a game I had placed in my 2012 poll for which set of games I’d play for that year’s Halloween season

The game in question is Evil Dead: Regeneration. It’s the third in a line of games obviously based on the Evil Dead trilogy of movies. It’s not the best game ever, but for the franchise it’s based on it is.

Evil Dead Regeneration is one of those middle-of-the-road games that’s average, but still very competent and being what it is…a fun video game. This is something we’ve lost since 2006 with the rise of the HD era of gaming. The only game I can think of that makes me think “middle-of-the-road” since then is Deadpool. I’m sure there’s a few more, but they’re few and far between, indeed.

Stay spooked. HartKnight out!
