20:01 - Redn1ght Basically Jak II developers tried too hard being edgy kool kidz.
19:44 - Clintagram Yeah, it was. I missed the 3D platforming and collectathon parts of the first one. Not enough of that in Jak II.
19:22 - Redn1ght Jak 2 was pretty much them trying too hard to make a GTA game in Jak series. :P
18:44 - Dima Ye the flying cars was aids. Did not enjoy it one bit. So little that I don't remember anything else about the game. I wonder if the shark in Jak 1 will terrorize me as much as it did back in the day
18:41 - Clintagram I wish they had kept more stuff from Jak and Daxter for Jak II. Not enough platforming and too much GTA-style missions. And the save points are so bad. I still want to beat it for the story and Jak 3. We'll see.
18:40 - Dima WAY too realistic. 3d platformers with that art style needs to be preserved man :'( Legend of Kay just dropped on PC. Closest thing to Ratchet/Jak that I can think of that's on PC. Port pls be good
Right from the get-go Wijlen Wij plunge their listener into the murky depths.
"Boreas" opens powerfully with subhuman vocals and organ cloaked power chords that sound is if recorded by an 8 track in some massive subterranean cave. Rather than the often slick and powerful production like a lot of their Solitude label mates sport, they went for a more primitive sound.
The sophomore release from this potent Belgian trio is a stimulating journey through four heaping slabs of funeral doom. However, this certainly isn't evil and soul-crushing in the traditional understanding of the style. With Wijlen Wij, clean vocals, suprisingly good melodies and grooves, and even a few audio samples combine to form some of the most upbeat and overall interesting funeral doom I've heard in quite awhile. Opener "Boreas" is nothing short of amazing.
That song was pretty awful to my ears. The mix of cleans and low FD vocals didn't really mesh well. The organ was very overbearing too. Also, maybe it's just the youtube quality, but the production wasn't that great either, sounded like the whole thing was pushed a step back, and it was pretty thin.
That being said I'm probably not gonna listen to this.
…boreas gave me a pretty strong Skepticism vibe, but that may have been mainly due to the organ. Solid release, will need a few more listens though. Fairly long album, so may take some time to go through it proper several more times.
