Video Games and the Bible…Week of November 9, 2014

The following is a quick overview of the Let’s Plays, Livestreams and other activities we’ve done in the past week…

_____________________________________________

This week was a busy one, as we posted our Let’s Plays of Clandestine, Interstellar Marines, Assault Android Cactus and BlazeRush:

Clandestine

Clandestine is a unique new stealth game in Early Access where you can play as either the hacker or the spy. The spy achieves mission objectives like picking up intel and defeating enemies while the hacker assists by disabling alarms, triggering cameras,
marking opponents, etc.

Interestingly, in Clandestine, you are not limited to one style of play but can actually inhabit BOTH roles at once in singleplayer. Online co-op is also available, allowing you to beat missions with a friend.

Check out our Let’s Play/impressions below:

Observed Potential Concerns:

Instances of profanity/taking the Lord’s name in vain.

“[Expletive], that safe has our mission-critical intel, but it’s not online. I don’t suppose it’s too optimistic to hope some idiot wrote down the code and left it lying around?

Interstellar Marines

Interstellar Marines is an intense tactical FPS in Early Access that aims to combine elements of classic shooters Half Life and System Shock. While the campaign is not yet in place, several HIGHLY replayable co-op and singleplayer missions are available alongside online multiplayer.

Thanks to Christ Centered Gamer for providing the game!

Observed Potential Concerns:

Due to the games’ Early Access status, it is unknown whether the story will contain unbiblical/antibiblical content or perspectives.

Assault Android Cactus

Assault Android Cactus is another Early Access title that feels nearly complete even in its current status as a pre-alpha build.

In this game, you play as one of several unique, non-sexualized female characters (each with differing weaponry and play styles) who defeat armies of murderous robots in frantic twin-stick shooter combat. Clearing missions and unlocking new characters is almost as powerful a motivation as rising up the leaderboard…

Observed Potential Concerns:

Nothing serious to my knowledge.

BlazeRush

Finally, BlazeRush is an arcade survival racing game that puts as much of a focus on simply trying to stay alive as it does going fast. A friend described it to me as “SpeedRunners with guns and cars.”

He was right:

Observed Potential Concerns:

Occasional profanity and significant cleavage shown by certain auxiliary characters.
