– Hey guys, Metal Jesus here. And today I’m back again with Reggie.

– [Reggie] Yep. How’s it going everyone? And today we’re gonna give you guys 10 games under $20 for the PS4 and the Xbox One.

– [Metal Jesus] Yeah, we’re gonna cruise around Seattle to a bunch of gaming stores to find these, and we like all of them. So why don’t you go first?

– [Reggie] All right, so “The Evil Within: Part 2.” This is probably one of my favorite survival horror games of all time. One of the things I really liked about this game was the story. The story is very strong. It’s very deep, and it’s very well put together. You play as a man who’s trying to save his daughter, and he’s going through all kind of obstacles to save her. And what he goes through is pretty nightmarish, and there’s a lot of history to this character. The graphics in the game look outstanding. The voice acting was well done. And you come to care about a lot of the characters you meet in this game. It was just very brilliant. Some crazy, crazy scenes in this game. Horror scenes that’ll probably stick with you forever so. In the beginning of the game, you wanna play the game with caution because there are a lot of enemies, and they will overwhelm you. You don’t have enough weapons in the beginning, but you’ll get there later if you play the game properly, I would say. You will also be stalked in this game, so be careful of that, you know. You always wanna kind of like watch your back. You can see what’s behind you. You hear something. You might be being followed. So just be careful of that, but definitely one of my favorite games of all time. I hope that you guys play this one. I’m looking forward to hearing your comments about it. And at this price, you should definitely pick it up.

– [Metal Jesus] I’m gonna start with another, I guess kind of horror themed game called “Vampyr.” This is a third person action role-playing game. And in it, you play as a London doctor who has recently been bitten and is turning into a, kind of a new vampire. I like a lot of things about this game, but one of my favorite is the setting. It takes place in 1918, and it’s during the Spanish Flu. And so what’s cool about this game is that your services as a doctor are still desperately needed because London is filled with all of these really sick people. And so a few people around you know of your condition and basically they want him to still keep working in the local hospital and helping people, even though he’s a vampire. And then the game will give you the moral choice as to whether you want to feed off of innocent people, which will ultimately make the situation worse in London, or perhaps you can find other methods of dealing with your new vampirism. But the main goal of the game is to try and figure out who turned you into a vampire and also decide just how evil you want to become. Overall, I think this game is pretty good. I mean, it’s not perfect. The combat in it can be a bit frustrating in the beginning when you’re learning the mechanics. I mean, it will quickly overwhelm you, and you might want to consider starting on easy if you find these kind of games difficult. And that’s really my main critique is that while I like the environment and the story and the characters and all that, it’s the combat that I don’t necessarily love. I just think it was done much better in games like “The Witcher” or maybe “Batman” or the “Mad Max” games. Here, it just feels a little sloppy and imprecise, but overall, I do think this is a really fun game, especially if you’re in the vampires and RPGs. And again, at this price, why not take a look?

– [Reggie] “Blazblue: Chorono Phantasma Extend.” This is pretty much director’s cut of that game. This is the third game in a series. And what I like about this game is that not only does it have an arcade mode as you get used to, but also it has a deep story mode for those people who wanna get into the lore. For this price, this game is amazing. I would say this game is pretty much like a spiritual successor to the “Guilty Gear” series. I’m not sure of a lot of people played the old school games of those, but this game has a lot going for it. There’s so much to do. There’s so many extras you can unlock. It just has a lot going for it. Character endings. Voice acting. English and Japanese. It just seems like, they put so much love into this game. And if you haven’t played it yet, it’s definitely something you want to pick up. I wouldn’t consider it one of my favorite fighting games of all time, but it’s definitely in my top five. So definitely check this one out guys.

– [Metal Jesus] You guys know that I like “Star Wars” games. And up to this point, I haven’t really talked about “Jedi: Fallen Order.” Well, that changes today. It’s been a while since we’ve had a really good triple-A “Star Wars” third person action game, right? We’ve had a lot of first person games like, you know, the “Battlefield Games.” Those are great. But yeah, I think it’s been a while since we’ve had one quite like this. You play as a young Jedi that is in hiding after the extermination of all Jedi during Order 66. However, you know, being the good guy and being a Jedi, you can’t stay hidden for long, and quickly you are drawn into this epic adventure. Basically you’re teaming up with some rebels that are following clues left behind an older Jedi that has a list of potential force-sensitive kids like yourself. And this takes you on a big campaign across many different worlds. And along the way, you’re gonna explore environments. You’re gonna be looking for clues. You’ll upgrade your Jedi powers. And also you can modify your light saber. Things like that. And you’ll battle a bunch of creatures as well as waves of empire soldiers all while doing a good amount of platforming and puzzle solving. You know, I was thinking about it as I was playing this. And honestly, this game kind of feels like if you were to mix “Star Wars” with say “Tomb Raider.” Maybe a little bit of “Dark Souls” and the “Uncharted” series. And as you can see here, the graphics are great, and the combat feels very satisfying. It never gets old when you force push like a storm trooper off ledge to their death. I love that. And it’s a long game too. It’s gonna take you about 20, maybe 24 hours to play through depending on how many secret upgrades and collectibles you wanna find. This is a really good “Star Wars” game. Maybe one of the best. Certainly in the last couple years.

– [Reggie] Next up, we have “DMC: Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition.” Now this is a reimagination of the “Devil May Cry” series. At the time that I played it, I really enjoyed it. I thought it was very well done. And this was at a time that I didn’t think they were gonna make any more “Devil May Cry” games, so I thought they were pretty much just gonna reboot the series with this one. I know a lot of people won’t agree with me about this, you know, the way they went with this game. But still, I think it was well done. I love a lot of the boss fights it has. I love how Virgil was in this game ’cause Virgil was my favorite character. And I like Dante a little bit later in the game. I thought he was pretty cool. Overall, I feel like the game is worth the price it’s going for. You get all the DLC so you could play as Virgil. And I think his levels are really cool, but I think this was a good, like I wanna say like just a reimagination, you know. Try it out. You know, the battles are fun, especially the boss fights. But let me know what you guys think about this one.

– [Metal Jesus] Next up is a game I’ve known about for a long time, but for whatever reason, I just didn’t play it until now. And that of course is “Knack II.” I remember the original “Knack” being somewhat of a performance showcase for the then new PS4, but I didn’t have a PS4 at launch. And so I guess I just never got into this series until recently, but I’m glad I did. As you can see here, this is a third person platforming slash beat him up game, and you play as Knack, which is this creature that can summon parts to basically make himself bigger or smaller. And so to be honest, I didn’t play the original game. I just jumped into the second one here, so I’m not entirely sure like what his backstory is, but to be honest, you don’t have to care at all. I certainly didn’t feel that I was lost or anything like that. This game has you hanging out with two humans, which I assume are probably from the original game, but basically involves evil elves and a reawakened robot army that’s gonna take over the world. Again, not really important. It’s just kind of there to move you along. Basically the real star of the game here is the graphics and the gameplay. So it feels very much like a brawler. You’re gonna do a lot of punching and a lot of kicking. Plus you have special moves like you see this one here where I’ve unlocked the ability to just rapidly punch this dude in the face a bunch of times. Also you can body slam. You’ve got a quick dodge and a lot more. And the platform here is really good. I like how the game uses the scale of your character a lot. So for instance, there are times when you need to be very large because you’re fighting enemies that are large, but then you’ll have to shrink down and go into these little holes to go into like say, you know, old ruin or something like that. Or maybe the ledges are a little bit too narrow, so you need to be smaller, but then you’ll grow back up to your full size. The game has you doing that a lot, which is really cool. And I think the graphics still hold up today. It looks very crisp. It runs really great. I like how you can see all the little pieces of Knack as he shrinks and grows. I think that’s pretty cool. So this is probably not the deepest game on the list, but I do think it’s a fun title nonetheless, and maybe even a little overlooked. Have you played it? What do you think?

– [Reggie] Next up we have “Dead Rising: Part 2.” Before I talk about that, I just wanna let you guys know there are two live action movies of the “Dead Rising” series that you guys should check out. There’s “Watch Tower,” and I think there’s one called “Dead End” or something like that. I totally forgot what that one was called, but they’re definitely worth watching. They were actually on Crackle if you guys remember that streaming service when it came out for a while, but you can find it on DVD as well. Now going into the game, “Dead Rising 2” I really feel like it’s my favorite in the series. I really like Chuck Green and the story of him trying to save his daughter. Like it’s crazy because what he has to go through. Basically this takes place few years after the first game. And he’s in this place called Fortune City, and all havoc has broken out. You know, it’s insane. Zombies running around. You have to get your daughter her medicine in a certain amount of time. If you don’t, it’s pretty much you get a bad ending. So it’s very tense, but it’s a lot of fun because you could pretty much do like a lot of things like you just like drive vehicles, create weapons. It’s a plethora of things you could do in this game. And it’s pretty amazing, but don’t have too much fun because there is a timer, and you have to like, you have to make it in time before time runs out because if you don’t, you’ll get that bad ending, which you don’t wanna do in this game. This game is all over the place in goodness, not bad. But it’s a lot of fun. This is my favorite in this series. And I did unlock the good ending thankfully. I was very careful, but this is my favorite game in this series. And I honestly think this is the best one. So for the price you’re seeing it here, definitely worth picking up.

– [Metal Jesus] Next step is a game I really wanted to talk about for one specific reason, and that is EA has a history of delisting awesome games. And “Burnout Paradise,” while not technically delisted yet, I think could eventually fade away. And that would be a real shame. Why do I say that? Well, EA has already done that with some of the more recent “Need for Speed” games, like “Carbon” and “Shift.” So if you go onto Steam and look for those, you won’t find them anymore. Now “Burnout Paradise” is technically on there, however, if you look at the comments, there’s a bunch of people there who can’t get it to run and need to go find like a fan-made mod or patched even to get this game to work. And so, because of that, I think if you want to play this game in the future, you may want to pick up the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One version today. Now, if you’re not familiar with this game, well, you are in luck because it is a very good one. It’s basically just an open world burnout game. And I’ll be honest, technically it’s not my favorite in the franchise, but most of the things that make the series great are here. For instance, you’ve got crazy fast races. You’ve got really tight arcade controls, great graphics, and oh yeah, baby, you’ve got some road rage. But it is a little bit different than the previous “Burnout” games. Those were very linear kinda level design games where this one is open world. And because of that, it changes it quite a bit. For instance, you’ll notice here on the map that every intersection or most intersections have a little colored dot there. And depending on the color of the dot is a different type of race, and you initiate that as you go to the intersection, you’ll pull the left and right trigger to enable those. And so instead of basically having a menu to choose from, you have to kind of drive around the map and find the different types of events that you wanna take part in. And what’s interesting is because it’s open world, there may not be one particular way to get to the finish line. And so that really means that you want to be familiar with the city or the map. Kind of know your way around, but the game will give you hints. So notice that the street name blinks as you approach an intersection. So it’s basically making a recommendation that you should take, although you never have to. So you can just blow past that, and it’ll make adjustments for you. Also included here is “Big Surf Island,” which was originally DLC along with a bunch of additional downloadable cars. And “Big Surf Island” is really cool because it’s basically all of the best elements of “Burnout,” but just jammed onto the small island. So the races are tighter. The jumps are bigger. The shortcuts are more frequent. It’s awesome. The only thing really missing in this game is a proper crash mode, which kind of sucks. But if you can get past that, man, there is a lot of fun to be had in this game.

– [Reggie] Next up we have children of “Children of Morta.” This is a top-down rogue RPG that really reminds me of like a co-op “Zelda” game in a way, you know. There’s lots of moves and spells you can unlock. And a little bit about the story, you play as a family of heroes that are trying to stop this evil monster, these evil demons. There’s a lot to unlock in this game. Lots of magic and special moves, but I have to tell you guys, a lot of people get attached to just spamming the same move over and over again. It’s better to learn like all the moves in this game because it just gives you a lot of opportunities to do like some really outstanding spells and moves later in the game, which you will most likely need. What I’ve seen a lot of times when people play this game, they kind of just mash the same button over and over again and play the game like that. You could play the game like that and possibly enjoy it. But you’re missing out on a lot of stuff in this game. So definitely play this game with a friend. It’s a lot of fun. It really pulls you into sprite work. It’s well done. The character voices are well done. It really sucks you in. You feel like you’re in a new world. So definitely add this one on your list especially at this price.

– [Metal Jesus] Next step is a game called “Watch Dogs 2.” And in this game, you play as an elite hacker who joins this underground hacker group in San Francisco and is basically trying to bring down this mega corporation. And the way you’re gonna bring them down is by pulling off these public stunts all around town that will increase your popularity and get people to download your app. Now, what people don’t know is this app has a secret purpose that is going to help you gain access to that company. Because essentially what you’re gonna do is use all the combined power of those smartphones that have your app on it to overpower their security systems. But let’s be honest, I mean, basically that’s just a long winded plot device to give you permission to do all this crazy stuff on the street, right? Because you’re trying to get popular. And this game is open world and probably gets compared a little bit to “Grand Theft Auto.” But obviously instead of being career criminals, you are hackers in this game. Watching this game play footage, you probably notice that the way you interact with the environment is very different than in “Grand Theft Auto” because you know, everything today is digitally connected and so everywhere you go, basically all of our little devices are connected to the same internet. And so you being a hacker, you can read people’s bios. You can see their bank accounts. You can see their social media posts, et cetera. And so in real time, you can hack doors. You can change traffic lights and just do a ton more stuff. Because again, everything’s connected. It’s a pretty cool open world game with lots of things to do and explore. And also I like the location of San Francisco. It makes it a very interesting and fun location to drive around and play around in. You’re not gonna get bored with this game anytime soon. And at that price, it’s a pretty good deal.

– [Reggie] All right, guys, I hope you enjoyed the video. Let me and Jason know if you want us to do more videos like this in the future because we saw a lot of games out there that we think you guys might be interested in. So hopefully you guys enjoyed this video. We will do another one in the future. As always take care.

– [Metal Jesus] Hey guys, Metal Jesus here. Now, I don’t need to tell you, but the price of pretty much everything, including video games, has been going up lately. And so, because of that reason, I visited my local game stores looking for some good deals. Specifically, I wanted to look at last-gen stuff. The Xbox One and also the PlayStation 4. So in this video, I’m gonna recommend some games that you can pick up relatively cheap. Many of these are $15 or less. Some of them, way less than that. Let’s take a look.

I’m gonna start off with a game, that I will admit, I should have played a long time ago. That is “Mad Max“. Now, my buddy Bo, when this first came out, told me about this game and said it was gonna be right up my alley. And honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t play this game when it first came out. I think there was just other stuff around that was grabbing my attention. But, I’m glad that I went back and checked it out. As of the making of this video, you can still pick this game up for anywhere from $10 on the Xbox One, up to, say, $15 on the PlayStation 4. Basically what this game is, it’s an open-world post-apocalyptic game where you play as Mad Max, and you’re going around battling gangs and raiders as he tries to upgrade his car. He’s called his car The Magnum Opus. What makes this game somewhat unique, is that the majority of your time in this game is spent in that car, and you are cruising around just beating the tar out of these raiders. So, the game really focuses a lot on car combat. And, you know, as an arcade racing fan myself and also a fan of this movie, well, that’s a good time. But, you don’t spend all the time in your car. You will get out and take on missions where you try to get parts for it, scraps to basically help you try to upgrade it. And with that, you’ll get better engines, better armor, tires, et cetera. For instance, you can add a weapon to it like a harpoon gun, which allow you to tear down structures. Also, in combat, time slows down whenever you activate the harpoon. And so, you can aim at, say, a car door and rip it off. Or, maybe you can shoot it at the driver and then yank him out of his car. It never gets old. There’s also flamethrowers and even a sniper rifle and a bunch more. There is hand-to-hand combat, and it feels very similar to me to the “Batman: Arkham” series, where you need to kind of focus your attention on the different enemies that will quickly surround you and overwhelm you if you don’t manage them well. So, you’ll be beating the tar out of them, and then as they surround you, you’ll get, like in this case, a triangle where that’ll shift your focus over and you’ll block him. And basically, again, kinda like the Batman games, you’re always doing this sort of beat them up dance with these guys to keep them at bay and try to win the battle. Now, again, I’m not entirely sure why it took me so long to check this game out, because I’m glad I finally did. And at this price, you don’t really have an excuse.

Next up is “Battlefield Hardline“. And, I was able to find this for between $5 and $6, depending on the Xbox or the PlayStation 4 version. Right off the bat, you have to know that this is a very different game from the other entries in the “Battlefield” franchise. Usually, these games focus on big military battles. But for this one, it’s more like a police drama and kinda plays out like a TV show or movie. In this game, you play as a cop that gets tangled up in this kinda messy drug war that may or may not involve different members of your own police force. Levels mostly take place in and around Miami, as you discover who’s involved in letting these drugs and these gangs kinda run rampant all over the streets. Overall, the story is kinda predictable. Especially, if you are familiar with this genre and you watch a lot of this type of stuff. But, I do think it’s very well acted, and the levels are really cool. It kinda reminds me of, I guess more of the “Call of Duty” type games. Probably more than that, than say, a typical “Battlefield” game. But, I did finish this one. I sat down and played it over a couple nights and I loved it! And the great thing is, it’s not very long. It’s about, I don’t know, probably six or seven hours. So, it doesn’t overstay its welcome. And I definitely had a good time with it. And again, at this price, if you like these kind of games, why not check it out?

– [Man] I’m going here! Don’t let them get away! Moving on.

Next is a game I’m very excited to check out. This was recommended to me time and time again. It is “Zombieland: Double Tap- Road Trip“. For this game, I was able to find a copy of the game for the Xbox One, at around $7. However, just be aware that sometimes the PlayStation 4 version can be, well, it’ll be a little bit more than that. I was able to find it for just under $15, so you might need to shop around. As you can see here, this is a twin stick shooter. But, it takes place between those two movies. So, after the first one but before the second one. And the cool thing is, it features all of those lovable kind of wacky characters. And I love these movies. If you haven’t seen them before, they are… They’re not really parodies. They´re kind of just… Well, they’re like survival horror but with comedy in them. I guess that’s how you would describe them. But basically, they’re hilarious. They’re awesome. They’re usually overly gorey. And, I just don’t know why this game passed me by. But, like I said, a lot of you reached out and said I should definitely check it out. And, I’m glad that you did. I think the main complaint that a lot of people had with this is that it’s pretty short. It really only lasts about two to three hours. And when this first came out, it was a $40 purchase, which admittedly a lot of people were like, “Eh, that doesn’t necessarily sound like it’s worth the money” But, now that the game is way cheaper, maybe it’s price is kind of in line with it’s length. Either way, if you’re fans of the movie and twin stick shooters, you probably should check this one out.

Next up, is “Need For Speed: Heat“. So, I was able to find this game for about $10 on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Now, let’s be honest here, for a couple years now, the “Need For Speed” series wasn’t doing that great with racing fans. When you think back to this time, the games that came before Heat, you know, some of them required an always connected console. I think one of them like… Yeah, you had to be connected to the internet to even pause the game, which is so weird. Also, some of these games were being inundated with loot boxes and micro transactions, and just a bunch of stuff that fans were, I don’t know, they were starting to get kind of pissed. And because of that, a lot of people, like myself, started ignoring this franchise. Well thankfully, “Need For Speed: Heat” is considered a bit of a return or reboot for the series, where it basically just focuses on one big open-world racing with not a lot of, sort of, unnecessary distractions. And, I do think, for the most part, they nailed it! But, was it too late? I mean, it seemed like a lot of people, like myself, we kind of ignored this game when it first came out because we had moved on to “Forza Horizon”, which kind of picked up the gauntlet a little bit, and those games are excellent! But, now that years have passed and I’ve gone back to check out Heat, well, you know, I can see that now this is actually a really good “Need For Speed” game. And, it’s one that you can quickly get pretty addicted to.

– [Policeman] This is not a game! Stop your car! All right, that’s enough! 4221 to control. Basically, this is an open-world version of Miami, and then they divide it into day and night races. If you choose to race in the day, you’ll get officially sanction races that will earn you money towards buying new cars, new upgrades, things like that. But if you choose to race at night, well, all of the races are illegal. And so, the cops are out waiting for you. So it’s because of this risk, you can build up, at night, your reputation, which then advances the story. So, it’s not a 24 hour cycle like the previous games. And instead in this one, again, you will choose when, during the day or night, you’ll want to race. That’s not to say that there isn’t, sort of a change in the level, though. For instance, during the day you’ll see that, actually, like a storm will roll in and you’ll get some clouds and some rain, and things like that. But, it’s just different enough to make it feel, kind of unique compared to some of the previous ones. And, I have to say that I like that it’s set in Miami. It feels like a really good location to set a “Need For Speed” game. I like driving around the city. It looks great! And then, you can get outside of the city a little bit, and again, it’s just beautiful to explore! Now let’s be clear, this is not my favorite “Need For Speed” game. In some ways it does feel a little bit generic. So, it’s not perfect but I do think it is a very good one. And again, at that price, if you’re looking for another arcade racing game, check it out!

Oh yeah, baby! Next up is a game I feel like I talk a lot about but I’m gonna do it again, and that is “Titanfall 2“. First off, I had to add it on this list because I do really like this game. And honestly, for $3 on the Xbox One, or $5 on the PlayStation 4, this is an amazing steal! So, what’s going on here? Well, as you can see, it is a first person shooter but, the difference here is that you control character both on foot and then when they climb into these like, towering mechs. And, it’s more than just a gimmick too, because the scale and the perspective changes depending on if you’re on foot or in this mech. And, it’s cool because sometimes you’ll need to hop out of the mech to maybe flip a switch or something, or open a door. But then, at other times you’ll have to hop into that mech just to survive a battle. It’s awesome! Another cool feature about this game, is that it has a wall run mechanic. And, you know, in the past I’d tried games that would have this kind of feature in there, and it was always sort of awkward to try to jump on the wall and then get off the wall in a way that didn’t feel clunky. And, I have to say that “Titanfall” is the first game I’ve played with a wall run mechanic that just feels very natural. I was able to pick this up really quickly in the tutorial. And after that, I loved it. And for me, this game is all about the single player campaign, which is filled with a bunch of colorful characters. It’s got some big set pieces and some really interesting levels to explore. Listen, I’m gonna keep singing the praises of this game because, at the time, when I fist played it, and even today when I’m capturing some of this footage, I still love it! It’s still a surprise. And again, for $5 or less, if you like these kind of games, you have no excuse to not check this out.

All right, now for something completely different. This is “Assassin’s Creed Origins“. So, I was able to find this for $8 on the Xbox One and $9 on the PlayStation 4. And if I’m being honest, I’ve kind of fallen in and out of love with the “Assassin’s Creed” franchise for a while now. I remember really loving the second one but then kind of skipping over, I think, the third one. Playing a little bit of Black Flag. But, now I’m coming back and really digging Origins. It just seems like this is the kind of franchise that you can skip a couple years and still be okay, but then come back to this one, you know? Or one like this. And, I do feel like this is a good one to jump back in, if it’s been a while since you played these. The one thing about it, that I really like, is that it takes place in Ancient Egyptian times. At around, about 40 BC. And like some of the other ones, there’s a lot of political upheaval. In this one it’s really cool ’cause you get to meet a bunch of pharaohs, including Cleopatra and even Julius Caesar, and a bunch more. I’m just a sucker for that kind of era. And, I feel like it really lends itself well to this “Assassin’s Creed” style. And, it’s fun to explore the open-world. Again, especially in Egypt, when you’re exploring pyramids and tombs. You know, kind of like… Almost like a stealthy “Indiana Jones” or something. Listen, I know this franchise tends to just kind of run together. I feel like they’ve maybe released too many of them. And also, the overall sci-fi piece of Eden aspect to it. The plot is kind of confusing. But, I do really dig the cord gameplay. And again, at this price, why not check it out?

All right, next is something that you may not be expecting. And that is a game called “Foreclosed“. And, I was able to find copy of this for about $8. Now, this game may not be for everybody because it’s not as polished as some of the others on this list. But, I do think it’s worth checking out. So, as you can see here by the footage, it is a cyberpunk third person action game, where you play as this guy who is involved in this kind of shadowy corporate conspiracy. That’s basically involving the implants that he has in his body. In the beginning of this game, you’re being chased by people who want to kill you, and you’re not entirely sure why. However, there’s this lady who is helping you. And along the way, she starts unlocking more abilities. Which, I guess to me, started feeling very similar to the “Deus Ex” series, where then you can hack terminals. You can see though walls. You can use different weapons. Stuff like that. However, I should say that this is not as polished as “Deus Ex”, not by a long shot. But, you can definitely see the similarities there. Maybe, they were influenced by it. Despite looking pretty cool, it’s main issue really is that combat just gets really dull and repetitive after a while. And honestly, the enemies are not very smart. I mean, there are times and literally, they’re just standing, they’re shooting at a wall, trying to hit you. So, you kind of have to look past the combat a little bit in this game. But, the story is pretty cool and the world is definitely fun to explore. And, it’s not a very long game. You can beat this game at about three to four hours. So, at that price, I think it feels pretty good.

Next up is another game that I finished recently, and I was surprised to see that you can buy it relatively inexpensively. That, of course, is “Metro Exodus“. You know, I’m not entirely sure why this game is so cheap. I was able to find copies for less than $10 on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Maybe it’s because the next gen versions of it also came out on the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. That’s actually the footage that you’re seeing here. And, that’s what I played and beat a couple weeks ago. But, I don’t think you’d be missing much if you get the previous gen versions of it. Also, I know that some people were turned off on the previous games because those, primarily, were trapped in these kind of endless tunnels and buildings. But what I like about this game, is that it breaks out of that and gets the player outside of the city. Basically, this is a post-apocalyptic fist person shooter that mixes in a little bit of survival horror, and a little bit of stealth. But, more than that, you also get some great characters and some laugh out loud humor. I was very surprised by this because when you look at this game from the outside, it looks very dark, very depressing. And, yes, the environment is. The whole scenario of the game is. But, I was very surprised how much humor and character was in this game. I really liked it a lot. Now, you should know going into this, that this is the third game in the series based on some books. However, I don’t think you need to actually play the first two to enjoy this one. I certainly didn’t. And, there is a nice recap at the beginning of the game. Plus, I don’t know, I mean, It’s not a very complicated story. At least it didn’t seem like it. And so, I was able to jump into this one. Played it all the way to the end and absolutely loved it. So, don’t let that turn you off on this. I think you’ll quickly figure it out. This is truly an epic game. Has a lot of really cool places to explore. Like I said, the characters are really cool. You get attached to them. You wanna fight for them, you know? And plus, it’s just got a lot of fun surprises in the plot too. Again, I’m not gonna give anything away. All I’m gonna say is, it’s highly recommended.

Now, here’s something completely different from that. And, that is the “Trine: Ultimate Collection“. I was able to find copies of this for around $10. What’s cool about this, is that there is a lot of bang for the buck here. There’s actually four games included in this collection. If you’re not familiar with this franchise, basically these are platform/puzzle games. And the main mechanic here is that you play and swap between three different characters. So, you have a wizard, a thief and a knight. And each of these have their own skills and abilities. And, this is not just a gimmick either ’cause you will constantly be switching between them, depending on the situation. For instance if you need to get up on a ledge, the wizard can summon a box and also use magic. The thief can shoot ropes and also use a grappling hook to swing over to those ledges. And then when enemies show up and try to stop you, well, the knight is really best in hand-to-hand combat. And that’s just really, kind of an overview or simplification of it because this game and it’s puzzles get very tricky. And also, pretty cool because you’ll need to be switching back and forth between those different characters, all the time. And so, this is a great value. However, I do wanna mention that a lot of fans don’t necessarily like the third game that much. The third game ended up pushing the game a little bit more into the 3D realm, and a lot of people didn’t like that. So just be aware that for the most part, people really love the second game and the fourth game. Admittedly, I have only played the fourth game and I loved it! So, that’s a great place to jump in. These games aren’t very complicated when it comes to story. So, you don’t have to play from the beginning. You certainly can. But, just be aware that the third game is one that you probably don’t wanna start on. I guess this is kind of what I’m getting at.

So anyways, guys, that is a quick look at some games from last generation that you can pick up for about $15 or less. Obviously, a lot of games were released during that generation. And this is definitely not an exhaustive list of good deals out there. I would be curious to know if you’ve seen some good deals on games on, say, the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 or the Switch. Please post a comment down below. And, as always guys, wanna thank you for watching my channel. Thank you for subscribing and take care.

Metal Jesus:
Hey guys, Metal Jesus here. Now, it has been way too long since I’ve done a proper games pickups video, and so I’ve got a bunch of new stuff to show you, including some PlayStation 5 games, PlayStation 4, Xbox, Switch, NES, Dreamcast and even some surprises. Let’s take a look. I’m going to go ahead and start with Hitman 3. This is the PlayStation 5 version here. Now, I originally played this on, I think, the PlayStation 4 or maybe the Xbox One. I forget, but basically this is a long-running awesome stealth series that is getting a performance bump on the PS5. Specifically, what you’re getting here is 4K HDR running at 60 frames a second, as well as fast load times, and this game is definitely a lot of fun and looks beautiful on the PlayStation 5.

Metal Jesus:
If you haven’t played it before, it’s kind of just like an open world stealth sandbox game, where you have certain mission objectives, but how you actually complete those is up to you. You can poison people. You can take them out from afar. You can sometimes even just push them over railings. It’s really an interesting game. It has a lot of mechanics in there where you dress up as other characters, but then you’d have to avoid certain ones that may detect if you are in disguise or not, so yeah. I’m enjoying this a lot.

Metal Jesus:
And you guys recommended, and I picked up Sackboy: A Big Adventure on the PlayStation 5. Now, this one is a little bit different than the traditional little big planet game. I guess, it’s considered sort of like a side game or something like that, but basically it plays more like a 3D Mario Adventure or maybe like a throwback to those PlayStation 2 classics, like Jak and Daxter. And it does have some really good visuals and it runs really good on the PlayStation 5. It’s one of those games where there’s a lot of hidden things to discover. Yeah. I’m enjoying this a lot. I would say, it’s not much new as far as these games go. It feels a little bit like a throwback, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Yeah. I’m enjoying it.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s a shooter I got for the PlayStation 4 and I’m going to butcher the name. I apologize. It’s Ketsui Deathtiny. I think that’s how you say it, but basically this is a Cave shooter from arcades back in 2003 that recently got a physical release on the PlayStation 4, so of course, I had to snag it. And I absolutely love Cave shooters. They’re a little bit different in their feel to some of the other developers who make these type of games, and it’s hard to describe other than they just throw waves and waves of enemies at you, waves and waves of bullets, but yet there’s just a sense of Zen to these games that… I don’t know. I just really dig them. It seems like that stuff blows up everywhere. You’re always in danger, but they’re super fun to play, and again, it’s awesome to get a physical PlayStation 4 version of it.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s a game a lot of you are probably playing because it just came out on the Nintendo Switch. That, of course, is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. I originally played and beat this game on the Wii U and I absolutely loved it. I know I say this a lot about these 3D Mario games, but Nintendo continues to surprise and impress me with just how much fun they pack into these games, because I think from the outset they might look, oh, it’s just yet another 3D Mario game, but there’s always new mechanics included in here that it just boggles the mind. I mean, the creativity over at Nintendo is just seems boundless, and so it was a joy to pick this up. I’m about halfway through it again and loving it just as much. Now, I haven’t played Bowser’s Fury yet. I’ve heard interesting things about it. I guess it’s a little bit of a departure, but I have no problem with that. I’m looking forward to diving in as soon as possible.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s something a little bit different. This is the Brawler64 wireless controllers for the Nintendo 64 by a company called Retro Fighters. Now, these were sent to the channel by Retro Fighters, but I haven’t had the chance to use them yet, but I like what I’m seeing here because well, I actually really liked their controllers, their standard plug controllers, a lot. I use them all the time, and so I assume that the wireless ones will be pretty good, too. And with these, they’re advertising 2.4 gigahertz wireless technology. It also has a built in rechargeable battery. That’s always really nice, and I guess they got some feedback on the triggers. And so these also feature upgraded Z triggers to feel a little bit more digital as opposed to analog, so I’m going to be really curious to check these out. It looks pretty cool.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s something really cool. So this is Turok 1 and 2. This is for the Nintendo Switch and these are the limited run releases that were put out maybe last year or something like that. Basically, these were sent in by Nightdive Studios. They’re the developer. They’re the people who made the remastered versions of Turok 1 and 2 for the Switch, so they sent these into the channel and these physical versions are amazing. Check this out. So right off the bat, I love these N64 style boxes. That’s very cool. You also have it in there a big poster. Also, included there is the CD soundtrack, so you get it for both. And also check this out. This, this is the sweet stuff right here. So each one of these has a unique commemorative metal N64 cartridge, and they’re just slightly different from each other, but they look absolutely beautiful and they’re super heavy. Now I do have to say they’re non-functional. They’re hollow. They’re just for show. They’re just to put on your game shelf, but that’s a pretty cool little perk there.

Metal Jesus:
And Nightdive Studios has been putting out a lot of classic games remastered for modern systems, like Switch and PC and Xbox and PlayStation, and this is no exception here. So Turok has higher resolutions. It also supports widescreen. They made small tweaks to the gameplay. They also included some graphical tweaks and effects, including the ability to turn off that fog in the original game. Remember that? Yeah. You can toggle that if you wish, and they included motion controls on aiming on the Switch. That is a really cool option for Switch players playing first-person shooter, so if you haven’t tried that, definitely check it out. It’s awesome.

Metal Jesus:
Next up, I got a Vita game, a newer Vita game in my collection. This, of course, is Gundam Breaker 3. Now, this is a import game, but thankfully has full English support, so you can completely play it if you don’t know Japanese, which is great. And basically what this game is, is just a big robot brawler slash beat ’em up, but it also has a lot of RPG elements, as you can completely customize your mech, upgrade it for battle, stuff like that, and it looks pretty good on Vita. I mean the frame rate’s not super high. I think it’s because there’s a lot of stuff going on, but man, I was having fun with this. This is a really cool game, very brainless, but you can dig into it. There’s a lot to it. Plus, it also includes all of the DLC on the disc, or it’s not disc, but the Vita cartridge, which again is awesome.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s a game that has a silly name. I think it’s silly. It is Battle Crust on the Dreamcast. So this is a new shoot ’em up in that classic arcade style, which we all know and love, or at least, I do. I’m a sucker for these kinds of games, and as you can see here, it’s got great graphics. It also has six levels to battle through. In this case here, it also includes the soundtrack, and again, it’s a new Dreamcast game. I mean, how awesome is that?

Metal Jesus:
Next up is a game I got really excited when I heard that they were remastering it for modern consoles. That is Kingdoms of Amalur, and this is the Re-Reckoning version for Xbox One. And so I originally played this RPG, I think, on the 360. It’s been a while, but basically it was originally released back in 2012 and it was a really cool RPG. Unfortunately though, it was plagued by bugs, and so I was never able to finish it. Probably got 90% of the way through the game originally and then ran into a game-breaking bug, and man, it sucked because I loved it. I thought it was so much fun.

Metal Jesus:
And if you’re not familiar with this game and kind of “What makes it special?” Well, R.A. Salvatore wrote the story, and he wrote some of my favorite fantasy novels of all time. He wrote the Drizzt series. Fantastic. We’ve re-read those many times in our house. And then also Todd McFarlane worked on the art in this game, so it’s got a really great pedigree. Unfortunately, I don’t think it did very well the first time it came out. Now, this is kind of a second life for this game with some updates and some tweaks to the gameplay, stuff like that, so I’m looking forward to jumping back in.

Metal Jesus:
Next up are some Switch games and here is Project Warlock. The physical version was released by Super Rare Games. And as you can see by this footage, this is an old school first-person shooter that is definitely inspired by Doom or Hexen, and this game is definitely old school difficulty. It is not for beginners to the shooter genre. It’s really cool, and it’s really fun, but man, it is tough. It will kick your butt.

Metal Jesus:
Now, one cool feature I found in this game in the options is retro shader, so check this out. So basically you can go in there and adjust the color palette to be a bunch of different retro systems, so you see Commodore 64 is there, Amstrad, Spectrum. Also, you have Game Boy, so you can choose the color palette from a Game Boy, but then you can go down and then adjust the pixelation, as well, so you can actually dial it in to be somewhat close to what it would look like if it was running on the Game Boy. Now, I don’t know how practical this is and I don’t know if anyone would want to do that, but I thought that was a pretty cool feature. So anyways, Project Warlock kicking my butt, having a ton of fun with it. Check it out.

Metal Jesus:
And then here’s another physical release on the Switch from Super Rare Games. I’m probably going to screw this name up. All right. It’s Itta or Itta, but this is game surprised me quite a bit. It’s not what you would initially think it would be, because it looks like a pixel art style adventure game that everyone’s done before, but actually this game is really a bullet hell, twin-stick shooter that then has kind of an adventure game tacked onto it. It’s a really weird mix.

Metal Jesus:
In this game, you play as a young girl who wakes up next to your dead parents and you have no idea what happened, but thankfully there’s this little spirit thing that kind of guides you through this world to hopefully discover what happened. And graphically, the world is a really weird mix of fantasy that’s beautiful, but also very disturbing, and so you’re very compelled to try to figure out just what the heck is going on. But from what I can tell, because I’m not very far into this game yet, you basically just take on boss after boss to either get new weapons or progress the story. It’s very strange. It’s often confusing, because I don’t know where to go, but I’m really compelled to play this game because I’ve never played anything quite like it.

Metal Jesus:
Here’s the new Homebrew game that got released on the original NES, as well as the Dreamcast. It’s called Flea. If you get the NES version, of course, it’s going to come on a proper cartridge, as well as the manual, but for this video, we’re going to check out the Dreamcast version because that’s the console that I had hooked up. So Flea is a very interesting platforming game. Now, I’ll be honest. It’s not a looker. It’s not the best-looking game by far, but that’s okay because this is all about old-school gameplay.

Metal Jesus:
So in this game you control a flea, and the whole gimmick here is that the flea is constantly bouncing. You have no control over that, whatsoever, and so essentially what you’re trying to do is time and control your jumps to avoid the different obstacles while you pick up these blood packets that are all throughout these levels, because a lot of stuff will kill you in this game and it gets really tough really quick. Now, there is a mechanic where you can shorten the amount of bounce that the flea has by mashing the button on the controller. It’s kind of weird. It doesn’t feel very natural to sit there and pound the button on the controller to control how high he jumps, but it works and I was able to get to Level 20 fairly quickly in this game. There are 80 levels in total, and I think the challenge is definitely there. If you like these kinds of games, you should probably check it out.

Metal Jesus:
Next up is a game that I pretty much pre-ordered the day it was announced from Limited Run. You see it here. It is Outer Wilds for the PlayStation 4. And I did that because the word of mouth and the buzz on this game was through the roof. Everyone seemed to love this game when it first came out, and so I knew I was going to want a physical copy of it. And I played a little bit of it so far. You’re seeing the gameplay footage here and it’s a really weird game where you’re stuck in this time loop, where the sun is about to go supernova. Now, the thing is that you will die and die and die, but each time you do, you retain the knowledge for the next loop, as you try to figure out why this is happening to your solar system and why everyone’s stuck in this loop, and hopefully, I mean, I guess to try to prevent it.

Metal Jesus:
And what’s cool about this game is it as you were traveling from planet to planet, you’ll discover and translate clues left behind from an ancient alien race, I guess, that preceded you. Again, I’m not entirely sure what’s going on yet, but that was a bit of a surprise. It was pretty cool. Now, I will say I am definitely struggling with the controls in the spacecraft because they’re kind of realistic. There’s a bit of inertia involved in this, and so I often am flying way past where I need to go or I’m trying to desperately navigate to a landing pad and I have no idea how to do it, so again, I’m very early in this game. If you have some tips for me, let me know down the comments.

Metal Jesus:
And here’s a physical version of a game I’ve been playing for a while now. As you see here, it’s called Downwell. This is put out by Special Reserve. Downwell is an arcade game that has a little bit more going on than maybe it looks like. So the premise here is that you are a guy who jumps into a well, and you are basically just trying to fall as far as you possibly can, but in the well, there are a bunch of enemy types that will try to kill you. Now, some of these, you can land on top of, Mario style, and take them out, but others, you can’t touch it all.

Metal Jesus:
And then initially, you have a weapon that shoots down and it will reload every time you land on a platform. And then every once in a while, you’ll see these time bubbles that will appear on the left or the right. You’re going to want to go in there because that’s where you find money. You can also find a store to upgrade weapons, health, do special power-ups, things like that, and this entire game is rogue-like and randomize every time you play it, so it’s very addictive, very fun. You can play it for just a couple of minutes or you might get addicted like I am and keep going back time and time again, so yeah. Definitely check out Downwell.

Metal Jesus:
All right. Next is something I’m very excited and curious to check out. This is the MiSTer, and this was sent to me by Colin who runs a website, MisterAddons.com. Now, I probably have been talking to Colin for maybe a year, year and a half, about this, something like that, because there is a lot to learn and know about this really impressive and flexible technology that’s packed into these MiSTers. Now, if you’re not familiar with MiSTer FPGA project, the first thing I want to say is that it is not the same as a Raspberry Pi. It’s something actually much different and, in many ways, a lot cooler. Now, what’s cool about an FPGA is that it can technically reconfigure itself at boot up to often perfectly emulate or recreate old hardware and usually with zero latency.

Metal Jesus:
Now, I believe this project got to start with people who are trying to perfectly recreate classic arcade hardware. That’s where a lot of this came from, but over time, the project has just grown and grown and grown, because again, it’s so flexible. It’s also open source and constantly improving, and so for this device here, I’m actually really curious to check out what they’re doing with the 386 and the 486 cores, and also how well games run on that, but for now, I’ve just opened the box. I haven’t really played with this thing very much yet, but I know there’s a huge community of people out there who are just deep into the MiSTer. I’d love to know what you think down in the comments below. Maybe you can give me some pointers or tips.

Speaker 2:
You have no idea how special this moment is for me.

Metal Jesus:
Next up is something very curious here. This is Nox Archaist. I think that’s how you pronounce that. This is a brand new old-school RPG for the Apple II, Windows and Mac. Check this out. So you guys know that I love my big box PC games, and this one here is obviously a labor of love. This is so cool. So just a amazing amount of feelies included this box. As you can see here, we’ve got a proper cloth map, very similar to what would come normally with those old school ultimate games. You also have this jewel here. I assume it’s part of the game. I’m not entirely sure, but I’m sure I’ll find out.

Metal Jesus:
You have this coin. Check this out, a sealed letter here. I’m going to have to break that open. Proper printed manuals, which probably are needed for the game. These old school RPGs, you definitely needed the manuals to even get started, as well as the game on a USB drive. Now, to be honest, I haven’t played the game yet, but I’m looking forward to it, because one of my all-time favorite games is Ultima IV, and yes, these games look ancient by today’s standards, but there is a lot of gameplay in stuff like this, so this is going to be very cool to check out.

And then check this out, four new Atari Lynx games from publisher Songbird. I originally met Carl, who runs Songbird, at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo probably… Well, it’s been definitely over a year now. He had a table set up and I was blown away to go there and just see all of these new Atari games. It was awesome to see. Here’s a port of Centipede, and this one’s really new. This is only finished back in January of this year. Quadromania is a puzzle game that was released back in October of 2020. Here’s a top-down arcade racing game called Championship Rally, and then S.I.M.I.S. is a multicart with a bunch of games on it. Probably the best game on there is the Space Invaders clone, and I guess this was originally released back in 1998, but Songbird was able to license it and manufacture these for 2021.

All right, guys. That’s a quick look at some pickups over the last couple months or so. Now, if you see something interesting in this video and you’d like to learn more about it, maybe have more coverage on my YouTube channel, please let me know down in the comments. Also, a big thank you to the developers and the publishers who have sent me stuff to check out. I really appreciate that. That’s always really interesting and cool. And as always guys, I want to thank you for watching my channel. Thank you for subscribing and take care.
