Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Review

I felt a rush of excitement every time I booted up a new game in the Death Drive Mk II. The fictitious game console essentially acts as the level select in Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, and I was always curious to see what developer Grasshopper Manufacture had cooked up next. But after watching each of its seven games’ charmingly nonsensical opening cutscenes, the ensuing action rarely surprised and too frequently turned tedious.There are moments where renowned designer Suda51’s brilliant touch is on display, but this cobbled together collection of disjointed parts never quite hits its stride.

In typical Suda51 fashion, Travis Strikes Again has an off the wall story. Taking place years after the events of the first game, Travis has moved to a camper in the woods to spend his days playing the Death Drive Mk II, an elusive and dangerous system with a dark backstory. Travis’ retirement gets interrupted by the father of Bad Girl, one of the assassins Travis killed in the original, before both are absorbed into the Death Drive itself.

Update: Canceled Star Wars Game Apparently Replaced With Smaller-Scale Project

Update 01/16/2019: Kotaku has updated its story, saying that new sources have now indicated that the cancelled Star Wars game was code-named Orca, and has been replaced with a “smaller-scale Star Wars project” at EA Vancouver.

Orca was reportedly deemed too long a project for EA’s current development road map – the new, smaller game is apparently tentatively scheduled for late 2020. Kotaku also indicates that some EA Vancouver workers hope Orca will re-enter development after the new game is completed.

More details about what Orca would have been have also emerged. The game would apparently have seen players taking on the role of a “scoundrel or bounty hunter who could explore various open-world planets and work with different factions across the Star Wars universe.”

Call of Duty Black Ops 4: Zombies Gets Double XP and More for 115 Day

In celebration of 115 Day, Call of Duty Black Ops 4: Zombies players can get double XP and other bonuses for a limited time.

A blog post on the Treyarch website explains January 15 marks 115 Day and is a nod to the element 115, which plays a part in the deeper Call of Duty Zombies lore. For players, this means until January 18 you can earn double XP, double weapon XP, and double Nebulium Plasma across all platforms.

The Nebulium Plasma may be especially helpful for PS4 players, as three new epic craftable elixirs are being added this week.

There have also been some balancing changes to existing elixirs.
