The Wildest People We Found In Watch Dogs: Legion

The Wildest People We Found In Watch Dogs: Legion

Turns out, Watch Dogs: Legion is pretty good. Legion's hook is that everyone walking around its open-world London can be recruited to your hacker terrorist cell Dedsec. Not only that, but you can also play as every person you recruit, each bringing their own special abilities and traits to your team. Personally, I think that Legion is a pretty run-of-the-mill open-world game, but its “recruit anyone” mechanic is truly impressive. 

Rather than hand-make the thousands of people you encounter and potentially recruit to your team, Legion seems to mix and match from a variety of phrases and keywords (some mundane, some deeply strange) to make its individual citizens. Because of this, you can find some real freaks walking around London. I love them all. 

After many, many hours scanning every person I can in Legion, here are the weirdest, funniest, and most disturbing characters I found.

Mod Corner: Silent Hills P.T Recreated In Doom

Mod Corner: Silent Hills P.T Recreated In Doom

While the future of Silent Hills remains unclear and P.T remains an unfinished journey, one Doom fan decided to carry on this horror adventure's legacy in a different way. Hideo Kojima's P.T. has seen many iterations since the demo was released, including mods meant to piece everything together to create a 'full' game. The latest fan to try their hand at solidifying this horror experience decided to recreate P.T in Doom. 

This isn't a total 1.1 remake but the P.T Doom creation from Andrea Gori is still darn impressive. Every sequence has been recreated within Doom as close to the original P.T experience as possible. The best part for those that love the retro feel of Doom, this experience looks incredibly accurate to the P.T demo without losing the retro texturisation we are all so fond of. 

Take a look at the walkthrough in the video below:

Final Fantasy VII Remake: The Weight of Departures & Reunions

Final Fantasy VII Remake: The Weight of Departures & Reunions

The original Final Fantasy VII catapulted JRPGs into the limelight and established a new standard for expansive gameworlds and emotional stories. Final Fantasy VII Remake is an homage to and reimagining of its predecessor's motifs: Eco-activism, classism, atonement, and companionship (among many other important themes). We demonstrate how Remake's plot beats can be reevaluated with the themes of departure and reunion in mind.

Square Enix plans to tell Cloud’s extensive story in parts but, because the first entry solely focuses on Midgar, Final Fantasy VII veterans get to experience the original game’s introductory setting and characters in more nuanced ways. The high stakes remain the same: The fallout from the Mako Reactor 1 and 5 bombings, the eventual destruction of the slums, and Sephiroth’s sudden and terrifying return. Our video essay considers these emotional moments and looks to provide other interpretations surrounding Remake’s most important plot motivations.

There are many scenes that Square Enix will have to reveal and unpack in upcoming installments, but we’re excited to see what the future holds for Cloud and co.
