Welcome to The GameTZ Game Club! This is my attempt at forming an easy to get into book club type thing, but with games! Anybody and everybody is welcome to join in on the fun!

Rules:

- Each month a random game will be chosen, by myself, for the club to play. Games can vary from the beginning of gaming onward to current generation platforms. There's no limitations!

- You have from the 1st of every month to 11:59PM EST of the final day to complete the designated game. 100% completion isn't required. The point of the club is to provoke game discussion, as well as give GameTZ veterans and new users a place to mingle!]

- For every game completed, post a picture as proof of your completion Example. This is essential in order to receive your badge and entry to the monthly raffle.

- You will be awarded with a badge each month you complete the game. All badges will be proudly displayed next to your name in the original post. As long as you "roll credits" the game is considered beaten!

- Some months will feature prizes! Every user to complete the game each month will be thrown into a drawing to win prizes! Users will be assigned a number and users will be randomly generated at some point the following month.

- Each month's prizes will vary. Prizes will be given out by either me or another member. Sometimes physical, sometimes digital. If you would like to contribute, drop me a message. smile

- If you don't own the game, and you have access to it on another platform, you're welcome to play it that way. Just make sure that it's the same version, to qualify for the prize or badge.

- If you do not want to participate in the games, but would like to join in on the conversations, please do!

- If you would like to join, just post here, and I'll add you to the list of users. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or criticism, please don't hesitate to post them!

Sorry guys, I started a new job recently, and it's been eating me alive.

I will come up with a game for next month soon (sorry no 20 questions this time), and get the RE7 badge made and awarded to those who earned it.

aim for the head. Even with basic handgun ammo they just take a few.

I'm still probably going to at LEAST give it a try on Saturday. My girlfriend's been dying to see how I react in VR. She's about to be severely disappointed raspberry

Or one well-aimed shotgun blast, if you're like me and it takes you a half hour to get your crap together when you see one of those things.

I had tons of ammo left over in the end... I kept saving it up and using my crappy ammo first. I probably would have had an easier time if I used the shot gun ammo more. I did buy and use the magnum up though, that was nice.

I did the same, mostly just used my handgun (with the enhanced ammo if needed) and once in a while used the flamethrower. I carried the shotgun on me but hardly ever used it. Didn't use the magnum or grenade launcher thing a single time.

The ammo thing is especially silly since (end spoiler)

you get that new gun that finishes the boss off. I came with all my guns and ammo and didn't use but a few grenades at her face.

Learn how to miriki counter. Also, you should kill Gyoubu Oniwa (Horse riding boss) before doing that area. Unless you already killed him.

I am just not timing it right I think.

Killing all the mobs in the area first helps, but everyone struggled with that dude cause you need to either do the counter, or cheese the hell out of him with poke and run.

I'll be honest. I'm not sure if I'd get to a game of the month this month anyway between finishing up PS4 games that aren't compatible with PS5 and all the PS5 games coming out.

Sorry for the delay guys. This month's game is going to be Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey/New N Tasty.

I'll update the OP later this evening or tomorrow with more details. Thanks for your cooperation folks!

I've been meaning to try that but don't own it. It's on 360 right?

If you're a long time PS+ subscriber that game was given free back in March 2015, so you should already have it.
That was right around the time I bought my PS4, so it was one of the first games I played on it.

I've only gotten ps plus earlier this year, so I don't have it.

Well there seems to be plenty of options to play this. According to Wikipedia: Was initially released for the PlayStation 4. The title was also released for Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Wii U. It has been ported on iOS and Android and released worldwide on 14 December 2017. A Nintendo Switch version has been announced and was released on October 27, 2020.

So that's 11 different platforms it's available on. Since New 'n Tasty is a direct remake of the original, @Frank would playing the original count?

Anyone happened to have played Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey/New 'n Tasty on Android before? Wondering if I should try it mobile, but phone control interaction with games sometimes isn't good.

So, I've tried on my phone, my tablet, and my nVidia Shield TV.

The Shield didn't have any other issues that its controller doesn't already cause, like the Home button being so close to the Pause/Play button. My biggest annoyance is that the keymap flashes on the screen for a few seconds when you first start the game, and then never again. There are a ton of button combinations that you need to memorize that mean absolutely nothing when you've never played the game before. The game also doesn't perform that well, but that's another story.

The tablet has an on-screen keywheel that makes a lot more sense, but it's small, and the icons could use a little more definition. Same performance issues as the Shield, but I think that's just a side effect of running Android apps on Chrome OS, even if the device is pretty high performance.

My phone doesn't have any performance issues, but I also can't get anything other than the menu to respond. I think this requires a gamepad, but I'm not sure.

It seems like a really fun game, and it's got a ton of personality. I just really suck at it so far, and the control issues aren't helping. God bless the Quick Save button.
