Screenshot Frenzy: Banner Saga, An Epically Depressing, Viking Inspired – RPG/Turn Based Strategy Game

Another successful kickstarter baby, Banner Saga – was but a benchmark purchase for me on my thrifty Honor 4x. Excited to test out this cheap Huwawei Octacore’s gaming prowess I picked up a few games from the Google Play Store for kicks. What started off as a fluke buy became two weeks of long loo breaks, 3 a.m. coffee runs from the bedroom and utter chaos in my work flow.

Here’s another installment of Screenshot Frenzy and a few captions to explain why you should pick this up on your mobile.

This game tends to be depressing, a whole lot, sometimes these sweet little events are the only break from utter sadness.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-15-54-36

I honestly didn’t train a whole lot, but yeah more often only 1 or 2 guys from your party survive the battle to the end.

The only bad thing about the Android version I played was too many of these screens.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-15-59-40

Day 16, 400 Clansmen and a few dozen fighters.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-16-13-05

So where to boss?

Screenshot_2015-08-09-16-27-53

Getting out of swings way.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-16-30-09

It’s perfectly fine… we’re fracking Varl, this shit is easy.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-16-40-40

Okay so, I see training has its perks.

Screenshot_2015-08-09-16-44-24

Early game, Gunnulf is the man!

Screenshot_2015-08-10-10-25-49

Let’s pitch camp fer now, give the caravan a bit of a rest.

Screenshot_2015-08-10-10-29-25

More loading screens…. eck.

Screenshot_2015-08-10-10-29-33

Even if everyone hates Ludin, let’s try him out.

Day 26 – On the Varl side of things.

Screenshot_2015-08-10-20-49-43

Woopteedoo more Varl for us.

Screenshot_2015-08-10-20-49-59

Destruction and Sadness: 1km ahead.

Screenshot_2015-08-11-01-14-55

All right, ready?

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-24-09

This old man was a hoot. Disappeared though after scavenging some supplies for the caravan.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-39-59

Up we go.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-42-49

Hot damn this scene is intense.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-48-28

Ruuuuuun….

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-48-37

We’re almost there!

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-49-41

Damn… so many Varl.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-14-49-54

Waving our long ass banner…

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-43-25

The serpent.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-43-42

A psychic serpent.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-44-11

An unfamiliar psychic serpent.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-45-41

Eyvind… pick up the phone…

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-45-50

Weird way to say hello on the phone.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-46-26

The nothingness.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-48-12

Yeah… via phone.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-20-48-20

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-20-47

The hard headed Iver.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-24-54

Day 99: We lookin’ good

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-26-56

All right all right… you can come.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-27-59

Up through the mountains again.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-29-31

Running low on supplies.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-29-59

Phew! A god stone… a place to rest.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-30-46

See nothing bad about that.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-21-53-51

Yet another god stone.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-02-15

The view is gorgeous.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-03-53

Finally… Juuuno… I got your call, I’m here where are you?

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-04-25

No one’s here but those creepy villagers peeking out from their windows.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-06-31

She’s not here Eyvind.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-14-57

But the threads said so…

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-20-42

If yo momma Juno so hot why she ain’t here, why she not pull lightning out of her ass, I mean sky…

Screenshot_2015-08-12-22-21-04

Damn boy you lost.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-09-11

Oh yeah… and did I mention someone just died.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-26-50

We just run out of Varl so 1 would be a lot of help.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-27-48

Day 158: From 500 Clansmen, only about half left.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-29-40

But things will be ok.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-29-46

Or so we hope.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-45-18

We lose some fighters on the way to Boersgard.

Screenshot_2015-08-12-23-45-24

And then the narrator makes things worse.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-33-22

I’m supposed to walk through all those dredge?

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-34-43

Ok I don’t understand any of that, but I’ll assume you know what’s best.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-40-18

Bellower looks upon the last of us. No more fighters left.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-00-42-21

Spoilers coming up ahead.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-11-22-53

Time to face him Rook.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-11-27-21

Ok mage upfront, like in all RPGs.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-14-00-44

Nooooooo… Oddleif

Screenshot_2015-08-13-14-03-50

But at what cost.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-14-05-20

Told you spoilers up ahead.

Screenshot_2015-08-13-14-05-53

Screenshot Frenzy: Persona 4 Golden Is Indeed Golden

Persona 4

It may be a bit late to put my word in, but let me be the one to tell you that you cannot let this game pass you by. It’s been 3 year since its remastered release and it still tops the charts for most consoles it has been ported to. I cannot stress how this game was made. But here let me try and show you with a little screenshot frenzy!

2015-02-25-224216

Coming across this dude made me chuckle a bit

2015-02-19-221616

Much like Chrono Cross’ Technique/Combo mechanic, this rumble option when your opponents are down is a treat to watch.

2015-02-19-221107

Rise Kujikawa buffing the party

2015-02-19-220616

Yukiko in a simple kimono, collecting these costumes became a focal point of the game for me one time or another.

2015-02-19-204519

The investigation team still has no clue.

2015-02-14-180618

Teehee, bikini costume for Yukiko and Chie. If the whole highschool social rpg part of the game doesn’t make you feel juvinile this will.

2015-02-10-201536

I never found out how to trigger this combo…

2015-02-09-083252

The awesome personas make up for the boorish gym clothes.

2015-02-08-172940

Ehem, in every tough man, there is an equally effeminate man hiding somewhere… inside. Or is there…

2015-02-04-161940

Discussing the meaning of life with a cat.

2015-02-04-150849

How this game employs exams as milestones in the game is baffling, but works in making the whole school vibe work.

2015-02-03-201502

The grind requirement though…

2014-12-29-163406

Let’s go!

2014-12-29-140943

The generated maps reminded me of Diablo.

2014-12-29-135727

If you’re an awkward teen, Persona 4 Golden has some pick up lines to teach you.

2014-12-29-134617

Dinner with the Dojimas.

2014-12-29-133809

Ready to face her other self.

2015-04-05-193845

Senpaaaaiiii!!!!

2015-04-05-193810

Bye Rise.

2014-12-29-133758

Tomoe

2015-04-05-163021

Hehe, you got to play this game to find out what this scene is all about.

2015-04-03-200337

Uhhhhhhhhh…..

2015-04-03-200229

Yukiko-san so kawaii.. 😀

2015-04-03-195859

Chilly Night

2015-04-03-195854

Rise-kun is feeling a bit cold.

2015-04-03-193331

Everyone’s in

2015-04-03-193327

Getting ready to storm the castle.

2015-04-03-192510

Whoaaaaa!

2015-04-03-192508

Kick that fool in the nutts!

2015-04-03-185234

Naoto watching in the distance.

2015-04-03-170810

You go girl!

2015-04-03-170735

Naoto Shirogane and Chie Satonaka

2015-04-03-170732

Yosuke Hanamura and Kanji Tatsumi

2015-04-03-170727

Can’t believe after 80 or so hours I’m finally almost done with this game.

2015-04-03-162152

Or so I think

2015-04-03-154330

Thanks for the update Rise!

2015-04-03-103253

Gotta find her.

2015-04-03-095208

Naoto gets invested in the group.

2015-04-03-093836

Good for you Teddie.

2015-04-03-093321

Learning the truth.

2015-04-03-092511

The fog ensues.

2015-04-02-224055

The meh ending.

2015-04-02-224051

Where no one kinda gives a rats ass you’re leaving.

2015-03-24-094142

Then there is this guy.

2015-03-24-093557

Dishing out the pain.

2015-03-24-093919

Returned in kind

2015-03-24-091152

“Cheering squad uniform”. Naoto cheats though she’s wearing a dudes uniform.

2015-03-22-200939

Kanji on the drums!

2015-03-14-202220

Time to fight some bad dudes in shorts!

2015-03-03-223421

Uh oh… better check the TV

2015-03-01-182254

Kanji-kun!


Hope you enjoyed the mash of images from Persona Golden 4, now I can finally delete them off my Vita. See you guys again soon!

Path of Exile Comic Issue #1:The Karui Way Is Out!

We love it when independent game developers find revenue creatively, without shoving their hands down gamers’ wallets obnoxiously. New Zealand based Grinding Gear Games charms us again with this great addition to their Path of Exile universe.

The Karui Way is available through their forums right now. The bundle(presumably for the whole series) is available at $20 which includes 2 in-game masks, while single issues look like they will cost $4 each.
