I really enjoyed the episodic Resident Evil Revelations 2 this year. As a super Resident Evil fan, I think the game is really fun. In particular, there is a Raid mode accessible from the start which allows you to run through shooting gallery type stages and level up your character and weapons from the rewards you gain from each play through. You can play through campaign modes section A and B of Scenario 1 with Claire or Barry with different difficulty levels. I downloaded on PS4. If you haven't tried the game yet, I think there is enough game in the first episode which also includes Raid mode and it's free!
Got an invite to OVERWATCH from Blizzard? Anyone following this game? Beta starts tomorrow, at least with invitation anyway?
Guys, I'm bummed out that I had to cancel this years horror fest game marathon. I've just been busy with new games which wasn't an issue a year ago. This is also a good thing as it means the game industry is healthy and all good. I'll just give a brief update on things...
Samurai Warriors 4-II (PS4)
I've never played these games. This was the first and I really enjoyed it. There is a lot of game here, and I still have half the game to finish. Probably one of the best if the internet doesn't lie. It was the right series to jump in on, but I've also heard good things about Dragon Quest Heroes, which I also want to play.
I really did. I was wishing for an HD style approach to the original games, which were great for solo play and had so many cool maps from the films, and although the game looks great, it plays like a MP shooter, where I was constantly being killed, and then respawning. I played it a lot and got better, but was mostly annoyed half the time. I decided I would skip the game on release, but I might give in and just buy it and suck it up and get better at it. The coin vehicle pickup was stupid. I hope to see more clone war prequel era maps too.
That glorious Star Wars Battlefront gameplay footage we all saw at E3 this year is now playable on all consoles near you! I know I'm gonna be busy playing this all weekend. Hopefully there won't be too many issues, but it's EA so there is that...
I've only played through 20 Story missions of MGV:PP. So far I've enjoyed every minute of it, but honestly, I don't enjoy open world games and I'm just picking a few story and side missions off here and there, basically approaching it like an MMO. I'm surprised at how little story there is so far, but the gameplay more than makes up for that.
Speaking of MMOs...WildStar went F2P this week, and I'm loving, loving, loving it. The gameplay really pulls me in and requires constant feedback from the player during combat. Something close to Guild Wars 2, or Terra, which are both have really good combat systems. I especially enjoye the cartoony sci-fi theme in this and its humor. I think the game is pretty challenging, but I might actually finish this MMO.
I can't seem to find a comprehensive list of interactive books/fiction anywhere. App store is horrible for listing/curating games. Pixlbit has some good recommendations, so I was just throwing it out there.
Aside from the Telltale games, what are some of the better Graphic Novel/Adventure type games?
