FFXIV: Shadowbringers is a tale that shows us how much we need the Darkness, how balance must be kept in check, how vulnerable we all are, and how we can’t stand alone. We need others to guide us and help us push through all the things that would get in our way. This expansion is the amalgamation of what we could ever want in an adventure and what we could probably ever want in a Final Fantasy game. So come hither future Warrior of Darkness, join us in our epic and dark tale of friendship, hope, despair, wild and crazy banter, death-defying battles, and become one of the next Shadowbringers!
Judgment may not be the next Yakuza game but it almost feels like one. Judgment definitely captures the sense of being a detective and whether it be dealing with an adultery case, a case of poltergeist, or even just taking photos of missing nekos, Judgment makes you feel like you're a bonafide private eye who answers the call of the helpless whether there's yen in it or not. So beware evil doers and lost items and pets for the time has come for Judgment!
Team Sonic Racing is a game full of potential but played it too safe and didn’t go full throttle to reach the desired finish line it set out to at first. The game still has a chance of improvement either via updates or through DLC but as for now, it feels like it’s on the low end of a fast track with bumps on the side.
There’s plenty of things to love about New Dawn despite all the things that fell short of what could’ve been. Whether your figuring out the riddles left behind by those that protected their treasures, clearing outposts over and over again with a different method each and everytime, or my personal favourite pastime which is unleashing my “War Boar” Horatio to send all the high way men flying no matter how strong they were since Horatio is the most broken character in all of Far Cry in my personal opinion, there’s so much fun to be had in the wild mix of chaos that just works and makes the series feel fresh and alive again.
Shounen Jump created this game in celebration of their 50th year anniversary and many of us were definitely at least interested in it and some couldn't help but be overly excited over it. The theory and potential were definitely there, I just don't know what happened to the execution, delivery, and passion though. For all we know it could be hidden in Kakashi's mouth if we're lucky. Jump Force is not a bad game, nor was it a good game, but definitely a disappointing game in my opinion.
While the game feels truly dated, for those of you who don’t mind playing classic PS2 games then Onimusha: Warlords is something that you might want to check out, but for those of you who’ve already played and especially beaten this game long ago then I would suggest spending your time playing games of this generation.
The game has so many things going for it however maybe there were just too many things which made it problematic in their individual parts. It’s ideas are great but execution leaves so much to be desired. Outside of the roster and the old championship titles, there isn’t much of an experience in the new WWE game. The game could’ve been the best in the series but even the WWE game in 2003 was a lot more fun and action pumping than this. It makes me just want to hook up my PS2 again and look for my old wrestling games.
Basketball is more than just a sport, it is a way of life to many people, myself included. And though NBA 2k18 is riddled with signs asking us to give the developers more money than what we originally payed for; it is still an amazing basketball simulator that even the biggest and smallest of NBA stars would play and worry over their ratings for. For better or for worse, this is not just a game, it is an experience.
Overall, Injustice 2 improves in nearly every aspect of its predecessor and is packed with so many things to do offline that it would probably take awhile for you to have an itch to go online. It has a very memorable story and it takes real skill to get the hang of this game. This game is enough to satisfy my fighting game needs for the rest of the year and it should probably be the same for almost everyone else.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age allows me to experience the world of Ivalice all over again and it felt fresh and exciting at the same time. It brought back the sense of nostalgia while not making it feel redundant overall. It has proven that it was and still is a huge leap forward in the RPG genre. The game fills me up with the sense of adventure just like it did before. So don't be afraid if you hated it at first. The 2nd try could be the charm you need to create your ultimate automative RPG instant kill squad.
Prey draws you in and gives you the weight of responsibilities that whatever the outcome is, they're yours to bear. So whether you retain your humanity, cast it aside to decimate your demons or maximize the two forces together, its all up to you. After many alluring hours in playing this game, the hardest thing I've ever done was deploy a turret in outer space and set it in a position to fire against the enemies in space. So be prepared, cause Prey takes being cautious to a whole new level in gaming.
Andromeda is vast, immersive and just fun to play and get lost in. There will be a lot of things you can do in each planet and making them a viable place to live for everyone is actually pretty fun. You can even just spend time flirting with your crew or some NPC's hoping to get some romance whether it be with humans or aliens. Whether it's for fun or just plain serious will be up to your discretion. So try it out and get a taste of what an intergalactic adventure would be like.
This is a game that's pretty much wild from the get-go, it's fun and does well enough to bring out a sadistic aspect in you or if you're a masochist you could always imagine yourself as the enemy as you find new ways to slaughter them. So if you're the type that likes going in ready to annihilate your enemies in a grisly manner, then this game is for you. Although the price may have you thinking otherwise.
Whether it be facing off against society, making a name for yourself, living the life of a super powered thief or just enjoying highschool in Tokyo, Persona 5 will have you spending all your time doing all that and more in the most stylish way possible. You can even make a harem here for those of you who've always wanted one. This a game that will really tempt you to play the new game plus and doing everything all over again if you wanted to.
