Which video game casino would you most like to roll the dice in?

Permalink - Posted on 2018-04-22 19:33

A little over a decade ago, Midway – a company spiraling towards bankruptcy – dropped a trailer for what could have been, should have been its saving grace. This Is Vegas would be an open-world title set in Sin City where gaming’s most generic-ass looking mother fucker could do all the things fans of open-world games love to do: fight, gamble, race, and dance like nobody is watching. I think about the game whenever I am in Las Vegas which is where I am as of the time of publication.

I’m not big on gambling and I fucking hate cigarette smoke, but I love me some casinos. Maybe it’s my ADHD or my simple mind that is easily overcome with joy whenever I see bright, flashing lights and hear the buzzes and whirls of the slot machines, but there's something pleasing about making my way through the sea of hover rounds and cocktail girls as I wander a sea of penny slots. This Is Vegas would probably have been the most authentic recreation of the Vegas casino floor, but thanks to Midway going kaput and Warner Bros. killing the rumored $50 million project, we’ll never know. Instead, we have to settle for the other casinos video games have brought us, and as I thought of this week’s Destructoid Discusses question, I realized there are some pretty amazing takes on the setting in gaming.

From those old school Casino Kid and Vegas Stakes games that were just straight-up gambling simulators to Capital Cashino in 2017’s Yooka-Laylee, this medium has a long history with readying us for a life of lost wages. And in going through every example I could find, the one video game I keep going back to is Elite Beat Agents.

It’s a crime the West never got a sequel to this game. Only a few pieces of media have made me legitimately cry: the Doctor Who episode “The Girl Who Waited,” the end of A.I. because I’m a pussy, and the “You’re the Inspiration” sequence in Elite Beat Agents. But that’s a topic for another time. For this piece, I want to focus on the “Rock This Town” sequence. Set to the Stray Cats classic -- but covered by Mark Latham -- this stage features a Vegas magician facing off against the Fullhouse Bandits after they take over the casino. How rude!

What follows is an absurd three and a half minutes of cheerleaders rooting on the magician as he uses his tricks to confound the bandits and save the casino. He throws his cards like Gambit, uses his wand to transform their weapons into pathetic flowers, and unleashes a steady stream of doves right out of his cape. What I love about it compared to other games that include the casino aesthetic is it doesn’t resign itself to focusing on the most obvious aspects of the setting. There are tons of games that have casino features with slot machines, but how many focus on those bad magician shows? It’s a different side of Vegas, one that’s ridiculous, hilarious, and more family-friendly than seeing people with obvious addictions losing their life savings before tricking themselves out on the streets to make ends meet.


Like I said above, it’s a crime we never got a sequel to Elite Beat Agents because I’d love to see a follow-up where the magician is a highflying act in Vegas, performing some David Copperfield nonsense as the cheerleaders hypnotize the audience into thinking he’s actually flying.

New Games: Masters of Anima is a Pikmin spin on Diablo

Permalink - Posted on 2018-04-22 19:08

One of the Nintendo series I’ve always been sorry I missed out on as a PC gamer has been Pikmin, the games about directing adorable plant people around to solve puzzles. It’s a little bit of RTS mixed in with Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Passtech Games new Masters of Anima takes Pikmin’s horde control concept and blends it with Diablo-style dungeon crawling, and the result is a promising little package.

If your gaming budget is a bit tight, check out our list of the best free games on Steam.

You play as Otto, a fledgling magic user learning control over anima, which you use to raise little armies of guardians up who you can direct in fights or to help overcome obstacles. You’re involved in the standard videogame quest where you have to rescue your fiancee from the clutches of an evil wizard, who is sending massive golems in your direction to make that more inconvenient.

Watch These Stuntmen Recreate The Action From Assassin's Creed, God Of War, And More

Permalink - Posted on 2018-04-22 18:50

Motion capture, stuntmen, and choreography are often required to create the elaborate, realistic combat sequences we see in modern video games. These action-packed moments can be pretty neat in-game. Have you ever wondered what they look like in real life?

YouTuber Legend of Micah recently uploaded a video that has seven stuntmen pay tribute to the following franchises: Assassin's Creed, Metal Gear Solid, The Witcher, Uncharted, and God of War.

In the clip, we see these talented stuntmen perform the choreographed moves of their favorite video game protagonists. We see a Geralt lookalike take down several foes at once with fake blood splattering around, Kratos wielding his new Leviathan axe with ease, and more. 

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The stunts are performed by Ben Aycrigg, Matt Scheib, Alex Hashioka, Tang Nguyen, Billy Bussy, Kevin Kem, and Joshua Mueller. The video was filmed and directed by Micah Moore, alongside assistant director Alex Hashioka.

For more about stuntmen, watch this video PlayStation put together about Kratos' stuntman Eric Jacobus, who lent his talent to the recently released God of War. You can also watch this interesting video about The Last Jedi cast learning how to fight.
