It's a tough life out there in the Periphery. It'd be nice if mission difficulty had a more easy gradient but for a game series that has been gone for so long, I'm just happy that it's not only returned, but returned in the best shape it's been in a while.
I can't stress enough just how delightful this new class is. It's every reason I've fallen for this game in a hyper-gothic wrapper. If you're already invested in Diablo 3, nothing I've written here is really going to change your mind as you've probably already gotten the pack. If you've never played Diablo 3 before, or are maybe not sure about whether this pack is worth it, I assure you that it most definitely is.
Stormblood is another heaping helping of what Final Fantasy XIV offers the MMORPG genre. It's set in its ways and is absolutely confident with providing fans with more of the things they already love. With an MMORPG experience this good, that's hard to find fault in.
Hide and Shriek isn’t a game that will be recalled in the annals of video gaming history, but it is such a unique and enjoyable experience that it’s difficult not to recommend, especially to anyone who adores Halloween and the season’s general tone.
Ultimately, the game is best taken at face value. I'm sure someone somewhere will have tried to make this game as efficient as possible, and in a few cases there were matches where the usual online FPS player behaviors sprung their ragequitting, derivative-slinging heads. However, the gameplay moves just right to make this sort of thing easy to ignore, and finding fun ways to pull together and get a spectacular win or an embarrassing loss is the ultimate reason to play.
