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]
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]
As I sat down to play a multiplayer match in the newest Call of Duty entry by Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty WWII, I was filled with hope. I had been wanting this franchise to head back to the WWII era for quite some time now, and first impressions did not disappoint.
As many of you know by now the Xbox One X is coming out Nov. 7th, 2017. Crackdown 3 was first announced during E3 2014, fast forward 3 years and the team has finally announced that Crackdown 3 has a release date. While I thought the game was getting a delay because of this Xbox One X I had no issue with waiting as long as I have so far. Of course those you not upgrading will still get to play as w...[Read More]
I’m going to start off saying FINALLY… We’ve been waiting since the games first announcement a few years ago for the game to come out. During the Xbox Conf. a trailer showing the ever kept secret of when it’s coming out.
If you’re like me you enjoy seeing lots of games, as you remember during EA show the game Anthem was announced, but as for what it looked like and more…. We had to wait for the Xbox Conf., but EA made sure that we were pleased with what we saw. EA gave the world its first look at Anthem, the brand-new IP being created by BioWare. Yes, a game by Bioware!!! Who else would do justice when...[Read More]
The Electronic Entertainment Expo has been a part of my life since I was in my teens, spending hours of my summer watching the action on Tech TV/G4. It has always been an event where I gather up my friends and we just absorb everything the industry has to offer. Over the years though, especially with me now being able to examine the game industry with more accuracy, I’ve noticed a shift away...[Read More]
Throughout my early gaming days, anything made from a movie, comic book, or otherwise popular franchise outside of gaming was usually a recipe for disaster. However, there has been a recent upswing in quality with titles made with intellectual licenses. Sure, its still not perfect, but licensed games are getting better.
