Screenshot of the Week #5: Creepy Beauty!

by on September 28, 2014

             This
weekend I managed to finish Wasteland 2 after 81 hours of full RPG pleasure.
I’m planning to go for another playthrough, but I’m going to wait for the game
to receive some more updates since it has lots of issues that need to be fixed.
             So I
turned to the next game on my list, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, which was
released this month on 19. I was expecting a thrilling and creepy adventure
from this game set in a beautiful looking world and it actually delivered, all
with just one problem (I’m not counting the fact that I consider the ending
predictable). The game is so short and by the time you are fully caught in the
atmosphere and story you find out that you have finished it. It took me three
hours to end this game and I believe I’ve done everything possible in it and I
paid attention to every detail in my path.
For some players a game with three hours
of gameplay might be too little for a title with a price tag of 18.99, but I
don’t think this was the issue for me. My problem with the game is that I
wanted more, I wish this was just an episode and there were more to come.
One thing is sure with The
Vanishing of Ethan Carter, is one of the most beautiful games I have ever played
and the attention for graphical details is remarkable. I made so many
screenshots, I don’t even know which one to pick!
Is it wrong if I find this beautiful?!

                I’m
working on the reviews for Wasteland 2 and The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and
I’ll probably post them in the following weeks.
