Call of Duty WW2 Impressions

Call of Duty WW2It was no real surprise when Activision announced that Call of Duty would be set in World War 2. The game series has been leaking players like a colander since they started playing with the futuristic setting. Fortunately for the series they have such a huge fan base that it was a storm they could ride out, a bad year for Call of Duty would still likely see it vastly outsell other games. So, with the series heading back to its roots and taking on the Nazi’s once more does this iteration steady the ship? Continue reading Call of Duty WW2 Impressions

Forza Motorsport 7 Impressions

Forza Motorsport 7Forza Motorsport 7 is here at last. Forza is a series I’ve been playing for years now, Since Forza Motorsport 2 to be more precise. Before Forza I would play the Gran Tourismo series, Toca, Grid as well as others. It’s fair to say that I quite like racing games although in more recent years I’ve tended to stick with just Forza, mainly because it’s been the best racing game to be had with a control pad in my opinion.

Destiny 2 Review

Destiny 2When Destiny 2 was announced I was unsure if I would try it out. With Destiny you either loved it or you hated it. The story was virtually non-existent with most of it being on a website that you had to go to in order to get the full back story.

I was impressed with the Beta and so slapped down some notes for a pre-order. I opted for the PS4 version mainly because I didn’t want to have to wait for the PC version which will arrive late October.

Tacoma Review

From the developers of “Gone Home” comes a great sci-fi story told within a fascinating world for the asking price of $10 too much. Tacoma boasts loads of personality, the game wouldn’t work without accomplishing this feat. Getting to know the lives of the crew members, their personal stories, and connectedness (or lack of) to one another feels very intimate and engaging. For fans of “Gone Home” or good story games in general, I would definitely recommend Tacoma but for those looking for something other/more than a storytelling experience you might want to wait for a sale.

Injustice 2 Review

injustice 2Subtle upgrades and innovations over multiple games has shaped Injustice 2 into every success that it boasts. It’s here that Injustice 2 is a solid leap better than its predecessor. It’s also turned out to be the best game that NetherRealm Studios has developed so far. What makes Injustice 2 stand apart from every other fighting game is an interesting story, masterful character customization, balanced fighters, and an overall excellent structure. It’s one of the best fighters I’ve played in years.
