This thread is about this here game:
Enslaved_Odyssey_to_the_West.jpg


It is an awesome little game made by Ninja Theory and written by the dude who wrote 28 Days Later and Sunshine. It sadly got looked over by most people during the Holiday frenzy.

The story follows Monkey, a drifter who travels the post-apocalyptic wastes of New York in a world where machines have wiped out most of humanity. It is an adaptation of sorts of the ancient Chinese novel, Monkey: Journey to the west.

He is mo-capped and voiced by this dude:

He is awesome.

Also, he drives a motorcycle and fights with a bo staff and has a hover-disk named Cloud. Yes, he is Wolverine and Goku in the future.

His companion is Trip, a member of one of the last surviving human settlements. She uses one of the machines slave headbands to force Monkey to help under pain of death. She is played by this lady:

Her video game character is significantly more attractive.

The game is a third person action-adventure thing, similar to a Prince of Persia game. What sets it apart is the absolutely fantastic motion capture and voice acting. The story is also very interesting and the world is gorgeous.

It's kinda short so maybe rent it or pick it up if you can find it for cheap!

    I can not stand Trip. Can't stand her.

    I feel this AV Club review does the game justice.

    Awesome game just don't waste your money buying it. I beat it in about 4 and a half hours and there is nothing to compel you to play it again.

    It was one of the best 4 and a half hours of gaming I've ever spent though.

    Turns out he was trying to screw my dog.
    Once I was taking a poop at a restaurant and a kid crept underneath the door into my stall. I let out a big fart and then he threw up all over the floor in front of me and I just stared at him.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this game because I fucking loathe escort games. Fortunately at no point in this an escort game.

    Trip helps out and is smart enough to stay the fuck out of the way during combat.

    I just wish you got to use the Cloud a little more.

    Pipe. I finally got a zoom lens. EF 75-300mm. It doesn't have fancy image stabilization or USM but it was a lot cheaper (i.e: I could afford it) as a result.

    When I was watching DE?AD play through this, he ran through one of the masks and it was a picture of Andy Serkis climbing a mountain. We both said "Andy Serkis went to the mountain!" which sounds like some weird redneck saying.
