#HorizonZeroDawn #TheFrozenWilds A slow start, but once you get back into it, it really picks up the pace. I ramped the difficulty to “very hard” for this DLC because the intense combat is one of the best parts. Although not the “must buy” DLC I was hoping for, it’s a great way to get more Horizon Zero Dawn, and boy is it good to be back.
#StarWars #Battlefront2 Engaging single player story & a fun multiplayer. Has a real Star Wars feel to it, both on the ground and in space, with plenty of upgrades available in game. I personally had no problems with the Loot Box upgrade system, but it might not appeal to everybody.
#AssassinsCreedOrigins Great prequel to a well-established franchise. The RPG elements & skill trees, as well as the beautifully crafted open world, make it a joy to play. Interesting NPC’s and a great story.
#Destiny2 Feels like a reboot rather than an evolution. Better story, character development & more humour. At its heart, it’s very much the same game. PvP is better due to the change to 4v4. Respects your “real” life by making the loot system and acquisition a lot simpler and less time consuming.
#DOOM No health regeneration, incredible weapons, great level design, a good story. Thumping great music. #DOOM is back, a true modern classic. Great selection of upgrades, runes, weapons & EXO Suit. Haven’t played much multiplayer yet, but single player is rocking, save an unreasonably hard boss fight
#MiddleEarth #ShadowOfWar It’s unnecessarily long. Nemesis system is still great fun. RPG elements, loot & the skill tree are all welcome improvements & additions. The story is difficult to follow at times. It’s good fun but not that good.
#GuildWars2 #PathofFire Solid expansion pack at a great price. Nice QOL changes &new Elite Specializations. Well-told story & Love the mobility offered by the mounts in the wonderfully large maps. Not much to encourage new players to join the franchise. If you play, this is well worth the money
#KingdomsandCastles Wonderful medieval SimCity. Great interface & cute graphics. Easy to pick up & play. A few issues with building placements, some buildings show a radius others don’t. Has plenty of development planned for the future. Disabling the clouds was the best thing I ever did
#Persona5 Dungeon crawling, turn-based JRPG, crossed with a high school social simulator. It boasts gorgeous aesthetics, an amazing soundtrack, an interesting combat system & a story that keeps you playing well into the night. A perfect entry-point to the series for new players.
#NexMachina A fast, fun, twin stick shooter with amazing graphics & sounds. There is so much variery. Easy to play, but hard to master – it’s like #Resogun, just completely different.
