First impressions are everything, especially in a huge RPG. So far I have sunk about 8 hours into Destiny 2 and in that time the game has made quite the impression. During the first several hours, Destiny 2 has managed to convince me that Bungie really did listen to their fans’ feedback. I couldn’t tell you any sort of narrative moment within the first Destiny, and quite honestly I pre...[Read More]
Earlier this week, the beta for the highly anticipated Destiny 2 was released. There is definitely much excitement to be had with this upcoming sequel as the original Destiny’s player base has grown tremendously since it’s initial release. I for one have been very optimistic for Destiny 2, and now that I have gotten some good time in with the beta, here are my impressions.
For months, the world has speculated what might be in store next for Life is Strange and residents of Arcadia Bay. At E3 2017, Square Enix and Deck Nine Games confirmed that they had indeed been working on a new Life is Strange title and that it would be releasing later this year. Life is Strange: Before the Storm takes place before the events of the first game and will be releasing on August 31st...[Read More]
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle may be one of the biggest surprises in video games this year. Who would have ever thought that we would be seeing Ubisoft and Nintendo work together to create a game that just screams XCOM. Well, my friends, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is real and it is a ton of fun.
I’ve played a ton of video games in my life, so it can take a lot for a game or mechanic to impress me. The freedom and movement and progression in Crackdown is one of the lucky bunch that has stuck with me since I first played it back in 2007 on the Xbox 360. I loved collecting orbs and seeing the progression along my path of destruction. So, when it was announced that Crackdown 3 would be ...[Read More]
Seven: Days Long Gone was a bit of a surprise to me when I got the chance to see it back at E3. When I was told it was an isometric open world RPG, I was a slightly skeptical as isometric open world doesn’t seem ideal. Luckily, I was proven wrong once I got to see what exactly developers IMGN.PRO were actually trying to achieve. Now what I ended up seeing was still part of the pre-beta, so we stil...[Read More]
At this past E3, WB Games and Monolith made a lot of effort to showcase as much as they could for the upcoming Shadow of War, the sequel to the surprise hit that was Shadow of Mordor. The original game was adored for it’s tight and brutal combat system, but the real praise came from its now revolutionary Nemesis System. At the time, we hadn’t seen anything like it in a AAA ¬action title. Upon firs...[Read More]
Having completed E3 2017, I thought it wise to reflect and think back on all the incredible games and experiences I’ve had in the past week. One of the topics I was most excited to ponder was what would be my Game of the Show 2017. I anticipated struggling and going back and forth with certain titles, but when it came down to it, my answer was already firmly decided. Super Mario Odyssey is, ...[Read More]
I got the opportunity to sit in a live demo of the upcoming Call of Cthulhu from developer Cyanide. Up until now, we had not gotten much information on how the game plays, rather we got some eerie and terrifying trailers showcasing the dark nature of the HP Lovecraft universe. I was initially under the impression that this was going to be just an interactive murder mystery, but luckily, we are get...[Read More]
Stealth games have come a long in way in the last thirty years. From single maps to huge open world settings. Originality is key to new entries into the genre and that is where Wildfire by Sneaky Bastards comes into play.
Horror is one of my favorite genres. What’s great about horror is how much the genre can be made unconventional by breaking the rules of what horror should be. When I think of a good horror game, I think of games like Outlast, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, etc. Those games are immediately recognized in the genre for their dark tone and aesthetic. Tinybuild’s Hello Neighbor is considered ...[Read More]
A couple weeks ago we got a stylish and cinematic trailer for an upcoming game titled Vampyr (not sure if it is pronounced normally or “vamp-eer”). Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment looks to once again make vampires cool with this new action RPG taking place in 1918 London during the Spanish Flu epidemic. After a good half hour demo presented to us at E3 this week, Vampyr looks to ad...[Read More]
