Never a huge fan of the episodic give you bits and pieces of the game over months and months is almost too excruciating. TellTale Games is just lucky that they do the source material proud. The wait is worth it, just not easy.
If you enjoy the Dark Eye Pencil and Paper game, then you will most assuredly enjoy this game. If you are role playing gamer…you will find a lot to like here. With a well-established gaming universe to pull from Blackguards does the Strategy RPG world proud.
It is clear that the developers put their entire heart in this game and wanted to make something fun. Personally, I feel they succeeded and highly recommend the game once it is released in the next few days. The game's price is an amazing deal and well worth it. To emphasize how fun it was, when I was previewing the game and the time was up I was surprised that it had already been over three hours when it had only felt like one. It is easy to lose track of time in the enjoyment of the game. And a game that is so fun you lose track of time is a good game indeed.
In summary, Wildstar is an enjoyable game with its ups and downs. It isn't breaking new ground, but it is taking existing ground and moving it in fun and unique ways. If you go in wanting a fun MMO, this will serve its purpose. If you go in wishing for something that replaces every other MMO out there, well, you'll always be looking. Nonetheless, the game is worth playing and it is worth a subscription.
TellTale games is on a big stride here! They hit it with The Walking Dead Season and the follow up The Walking Dead 400 days and they are on another winner with The Wolf Among Us. All in all, the Wolf Among Us is an excellent game that is best played on a high-end console as it gives the entire experience, a movie-like feel!
Dying Light is a fun game on the PlayStation 4 that definitely borrows heavily from the zombie genre and although the gameplay is not new, the inclusion of Parkour definitely adds a real element of excitement. However the Parkour can also be quite frustrating as a poorly timed jump can lead to your death on more than one occasion.
Son of Nor has some promise, delivers a passable game… but can be so much better. If you come into this knowing you're playing what can be considered an Indy title you won't be let down as much. There are some good things going on, and it may hold your interest a bit… if nothing else than for the interesting abilities that are bestowed on the playable character.
It's an enigma of a game, its visuals compel you to want to play, to explore and see what happens next, but the game play and delivery… from the controls to the camera view system seeks to sabotage the experience. It's not a bad game at all, it's just another game in a crowd. Once played through there is not enough there for a revisit. But there is enough there to visit at least once.
With a small mix of skills to be leveled up, some passive skills and various other things that make a good RPG style game, The Incredible Adventure of Van Helsing III exits with this final adventure that goes out with some level of closure. Fans will be satisfied, even if this final jaunt is shorter when compared to the other two in the game series. Van Helsing III may be the end of the series but it will make you want to play them all if you have missed the other instalments.
Batman Arkham Knight is another success story for Rocksteady Studios who once again create one of the most flawless Batman experiences to date that really dwarfs what came before it. Sure it has some parallels to the previous game but the new tweaks, challenges and storyline really takes this franchise to a new level and good luck to any other developer who tries to make the next instalment of a superhero game. Beautifully presented, slick gameplay and a storyline that in my books is better than the recent films, Batman Arkham Knight is a fitting way to end this franchise on a true high!
