With the recent patch 1.03 being released for this game, including a new multiplayer mode, I thought I'd give my two cents on something that I didn't cover in my review a couple months ago.

When released, the multiplayer portion of The Last of Us had two game modes: Supply Raid and Survivors. Supply Raid is a basic Team Deathmatch game with wave respawning, though this is spiced up with the supplies aspect that serves as the function of the game. (More on this later.) Survivors is a round-based, no-respawn version of this.

As these modes are both centered on killing the other team, it would get old fairly quickly. However, the aforementioned supplies goal adds tension to the matches. In order to rank and track your progress in the game, you choose which of the two factions in the single-player to belong to: Hunters or Fireflies. Within this faction, you have your group of survivors (clan), which grows not so much with how many matches you win, but with how many supplies you gather during them.

How do you get supplies? Simplest is through killing opponents and gathering the supplies they drop. But you can also complete actions that help your team, liking spotting enemies, healing your teammates and craft items whenever you can.

Every match has a supply goal you have to meet in order to grow or maintain your clan. When you don't meet that goal, clan members become sick or injured. This means that any future supplies you receive are used to get those members up to healthy. Anything past that increases your clan size.

This is what has brought me back so often to play The Last of Us. This ephemeral and ultimately pointless metric is so engaging and something far more interesting than K/D ratio. There have been so many times where a round was close to ending and, when glancing down at my inadequate supplies, I suddenly grew worried and rushed forward to grab supplies and hope to craft as much as I could.

Now, with the introduction of Interrogation mode, multiplayer has grown even more interesting. Aside from just surviving on the maps, you have a goal. Every team must protect a safe or lockbox from their opponents. How does the opposing team get to the lockbox? By performing interrogations on enemies. Interrogations are fairly lengthy animations that can be interrupted, most likely with getting injured or killed.

5 interrogations reveals the lockbox, which then must be picked. Again, this leaves time for the players to be interrupted.

I played a couple games the night the patch was released and was astounded by the change of pace and tactics in the game. I think I'll be playing this a lot more over the coming days.

Unfortunately, I was also trying to accomplish a mission, which is a goal that can affect your clan's population. I did not accomplish the minimum necessary and my clan was wiped out. Oh well. Now I can start another clan and focus on Interrogation mode as I try to increase the population! Wish me luck!

After playing Journey Christmas Day last year, I had made a promise to myself to play more downloadable games during 2013. I have fallen far, far short of that goal. However, having PSPlus has given me oppurtunities to try some games for free. Granted, most of them have been big name titles (Saints Row the Third, I'm looking at you), but one in particular fit the indie developer bill.

 Machinarium is a point and click puzzle game originally developed for the PC platform in 2009 by Amanita Design, a Czech company. It's said that it cost only $1,000 to develop and if so, Machinarium is a great example why a large budget isn't necessary to make a quality game.

I knew very little about Machinarium when starting it, so I was surprised at it's simplicity. Rather than exploring a rich, deep world, you are presented a single illustrated frame through which you move your lone robot back and forth and interact with a few triggers that form the puzzles of the game.

The art of this world is fantastic and unique. It's evocative and interesting, and quite easily recognized as Eastern European. The robots are very simple and cute. In fact, they seem to draw more from older illustrated robots than the smooth and glamorous robots of the past few decades.

The color has a dreary earth tone to it throughout the game, which is matched by the score. This music is an ambient electronic set of tones that lends to the old-school mechanical theme of the game overall.

The puzzles range from the simple to the frustrating. The latter, however, are not detrimental to the game, as I felt as if I had accompished something when I completed them. I would spend long moments staring at the screen, trying to sort out how the visual puzzles. Another was fairly simple, except for it's reversing the expectation of getting it right in order to proceed.

Machinarium is a clever, sweet game that I would recommend to anyone who has 1-2 hours and a desire to experience something special. The PS Vita version is currently free for those with PSPlus subscriptions.

So with GenCon recently ending, there has been news of rpgs and board games being released soon. Two of them have Rejo excited.

The first is the cooperative card game based in the Pathfinder rpg setting, the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords Base Set. The Dice Tower has a favorable review here.

Any fan of Joss Whedon's Firefly show should be interested in the board game, where you play ship captains and their crew competing to gain cash in the 'Verse. Board Game Geek covers it here

Lovecraft-philes may want to cast their eyes on Eldritch Horror, Fantasy Flight Games' take on global horror, found here

And having played an unhealthy amount of Shadowrun 2nd Edition in high school, Rejo was happy to hear it's going strong, with 4th Edition being released.

So, like any 30something gamer, I grew up on platforming games. I have fond memories of jumping on things and collecting whatever I was told to. But as the consoles developed and expanded in their abilities, I dipped my toes into new genres of gaming and have become distracted. I've played platforming games over the past few years (Jak and Daxter, I love you!), but I don't have a solid grounding in them now. 

   A few years ago, the PSN offered LittleBigPlanet for download. Excited at having a free chance to play a game that I'd heard so much about, I downloaded it and then never touched it. But lo! Realizing that I have an incredible backlog of games to catch up on, I decided to play through LittleBigPlanet and see what all the past fuss was about.

A View of LittleBigPlanet

   I'm sure everyone has heard of how beautiful this game is by now. There's no bit of understatement in saying it is gorgeous. Throughout the game, I felt more like someone filmed an intricate diorama crafted from yarn, cardboard and loving attention from a resourceful and industrious child. 

   The textures are all amazing. There were many times when I would move close to the tv just to examine the slightly frayed fabrics and the carefully creased, bent and cut pieces of materials. 

   To make it even harder to distinguish what is real and what is not, there are occassions where actual photos are used as part of the world. 

   LittleBigPlanet is a wonderfully gorgeous game and while it takes place in a world made from the collective unconscious of humanity. The look of it relies on looking like objects and items found in the real world. In doing this, it succeeds greatly. 

Exploring LittleBigPlanet

   Like with every other platformer, the most important things you can do in playing LBP is run and jump. Beyond that is the player's ability to solve puzzles and time his reactions accordingly. The best thing about LBP is how well it develops the player into having the necessary skills in playing the game. None of the challenges ever felt like they were suddenly pulled from someone's dreams/nightmares, as the basics of solving the puzzle or combatting the boss were introduced one or more levels previously. 

   The only real complaint is how landing on a jump was occassionally difficult to control. There were times when I had to repeatedly play through a segment because my landings would always result with my cute Sackboy (in a Spider-man costume I purchased on the PS Store) overstepping just enough to fall off the edge of a pit of fire, or into a shredder or into poisonous gas. 

   I would hope that this would be corrected for LBP2, especially since it detracted so much from my enjoyment of this otherwise fun game. LBP has solid gameplay, with a mix of basic platforming tropes and inventive physical, almost gymnastic puzzles. It's only failure is the occassional inability for Sackboy to stick his landings.

LittleBigStory

   Like early platforming games, LittleBigPlanet has a flimsy story. This seems to be intentional, as the premise of the game is exploring a lighthearted dreamscape, but as someone who has embraced the growing ability of video games to tell challenging stories I was hoping for more. Sure, as a game that seems to spring from child-like wonder, challenge might not have to be present. However, very basic rescue missions could have been made more fun with risk. Enforcing this weakness/theme of LBP is the end. After a fun and difficult final boss fight, the game ends with a "Good job! Now go create your own stuff!" 

   This goes well with the intention of the game, as it's supposed to be an amalgamation of every player's imagination, but it felt ineffectual. I felt almost as if I was congratulated for drawing a straight line, then told to go draw a comic book. 

   I wasn't impressed with the bit of story provided to us in LittleBigPlanet, and while I could excuse it, I can't really ignore it. Like with the landings, I hope this is changed in the sequel.

I'm not going to tell fans of platforming games to not play this, as it is a wonderful experience and still filled with fun at nearly every moment of play, but I will warn possible players to NOT go into the game hoping to get something more than the challenge of timing your jumps accurately. LittleBigPlanet is an achievement in graphics, but it's not breaking ground in any other areas.
