Games coming out in March 2017

February 24th, 2017 No comments

Right, so a few cool things came out in February, but not much. I’m lining some things up for reviews/impressions. Not sure when I can get some of them out.

So March has one platform coming out with 12 launch titles and another later in the month. Otherwise I’m highlighting 4 PS4 releases, 1 that may be a PS4 release or a multiplat release, 12 multiplats, a PC release and a 3DS release.

Yeah, just a few days left, March is gonna be huge.

Usual disclaimer: This includes either games I’m interested in, games that may be/become popular and random stuff in-between… Basically anything I feel bears mentioning. Probably missing stuff because game companies are shit about announcing release dates nowadays (and good at delaying games near release). Indies in particular are kinda random, or bad at making their games known (I get that it’s hard, but if I don’t see anything about your game before it comes out, I can’t very much highlight it). So if there’s no indie games here, it’s pretty normal. I won’t spend hours that I could be playing games watching videos for indie games I have no immediate interest in.

The Overwatch Problem

February 21st, 2017 No comments

Overwatch
Yes, I’m parodying Your Overwatch with this title. They used to love making “The X Problem” titles for their videos. They definitely come recommended when it comes to Overwatch content on Youtube, by the way. Some of the best discussions/tip videos you can find.

Anyways… so Overwatch was one of my top games of last year, and ranks highly as one of my favorite multiplayer games ever (and my favorite online multiplayer game). It’s an extremely fun, well designed game.

So what is “The Overwatch Problem”? Well, it’s multi-faceted, but I hope that I will correctly explain why I’ve largely given up on playing it for a while. With season 4 incoming it kinda sucks that I have no motivation to play this game evem though I fucking love it.

Yeah, this will be a long annoying rant. Read on! I’ll try to make sense.

Games coming out in February 2017

January 25th, 2017 No comments

Alright, January was kinda quiet (still a couple releases upcoming and some that I’m playing in preparation for review), but soon we’re getting lots of stuff coming out. Hopefully I can cover a lot of stuff, we’ll see. I’ve been wanting to make this blog a bit more lively and I think I’ve been doing a bit better with it of late.

So February… 3 PS4 releases (2 exclusive), 9-ish multiplats, a mobile release, a PC release and a 3DS release. Surprising amount of stuff for the PS4 once again, that’s nice and very unlike the PS4.

So let’s go and see what’s up!

Games coming out in January 2017

December 29th, 2016 No comments

And after all this stuff, it’s also time to start again with the monthly releases post. Of course the most important thing happening in January will be the Switch event from Nintendo. They better not mess that up. Another thing, the PS4 actually has a couple exclusives coming up in the next few months. That’s pretty surprising considering its track record so far (outside of a handful of VR games I guess), I hope it keeps up.

So we’re getting a couple things this upcoming month. Maybe a few things that could be pretty interesting. 1 3DS release, 5 PS4 releases, 6 multiplats, a PC DLC (not something I usually highlight) and a Vita filler.

2017 in video games – hype or no hype?

December 29th, 2016 No comments

So that’s it for my GotY 2016 stuff. 2016 was a fairly weak year overall. So while I’m not SUPER EXCITED for 2017, there’s a handful of games I do have lots of hype for, so I figured I’d highlight some of those. Just for a quick fun post.

Let’s go and hope 2017 is a step up from the last 3 years. (note that this was written before the Switch event, so who knows if anything more is going to be officially announced there)

EDIT: I had to change this because Microsoft are stupid idiots and cancelled Scalebound… which might not be THAT big of a shame since it seems MS fucked with the development in the first place, as evidenced by a Kamiya tweet from 2015… but I’m still disappointed (also I did other small edits)

Final Fantasy 15 impressions

December 28th, 2016 No comments


Well I WOULD call this a review, if FF15 was a reviewable game. It’s not, by my estimation. So this is an impressions post instead.

So I just finished this, and as you may have noticed it made no appearance in my GotY 2016 post. There’s a few reasons for that.

So let’s go and talk about one of the biggest releases of the year!

Note: This does not mention any of the extra content they’re adding later down the line, may it be cutscenes or new scenarios. I won’t play those either way. This is about what the game is as of this writing.

Games of the Year Awards 2016

December 28th, 2016 No comments

Right so we had ourselves quite a year in gaming. And by “quite a year” I mean “nothing fucking happened”. It had games, some of them good, but it felt kinda empty, even when stuff was coming out at a more regular pace. There really isn’t much to discuss. As such, choosing winners for the 2016 Games of the Year was not easy. At all.

So read on and see what I’m naming my top games of the year! We’re starting with a quick mini-rant of the year as a whole, then the 5 winners (with one of them being the top winner because of arbitrary reasons), then a couple of honorable mentions and finally, a bunch of losers. Because why not.

Games I won’t review – Dragon Ball edition – Fusions and Xenoverse 2

December 18th, 2016 No comments

So I’ve been a Dragon Ball fan for a long time. I watched the original DB as a kid, watched DBZ as soon as it started, read most of the manga, and I’m watching Dragon Ball Super now even though it kinda sucks most of the time, because it’s more Dragon Ball. It’s kind of a generic anime to be a fan of, but whatever, I like it.

So today I’m writing non-reviews for 2 Dragon Ball games I got recently, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball Fusions. Games that are actually surprisingly similar despite not at all playing the same.

Note: These non-reviews don’t mean the games are bad, just that I might not have enough to say for a full review, or haven’t/won’t end up playing enough to write a full review, but I still want to talk about them. In this case both games are good.

Furi review

December 14th, 2016 No comments

furi

This is a game I wanted to play back when it came out earlier this year, but I decided to wait on a sale, since I don’t subscribe to PS+ anymore. I saw a few videos at the time and I knew I had to grab it at some point.

So yeah… this will be a fairly short review probably. Read on and see if I liked it.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero review

December 11th, 2016 No comments

With the utter fail that was the Mighty No 9 kickstarter project as a whole (and other utter failures like Star Citizen and the Ouya), trust for Kickstarter games have gone way down. but it’s not like every Kickstarter project HAS to be bad, or fail to deliver. Despite what it seems like, there’s occasionally a KS project that does turn into am actual game, and within that group there’s some that are actually good.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero was set to be one of these rare projects that would “for sure” end up being successful. And a couple days ago backers such as I got access to the game ahead of its release date (though that was following lots of delays, as is standard with KS projects).

I’m not SUPER familiar with Shantae (though I do have Risky’s Revenge and Pirate’s Curse on Steam, I haven’t actually played them), but I have seen a lot of them in reviews and such. I haven’t played the GBC game because it’s freakishly rare and expensive (though it IS on the 3DS Virtual Console so I might grab that eventually).

So here’s my early review of Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. Read on and see if this is one of those rare Kickstarter successes alongside the likes of Shovel Knight and a small handful of others!
