One feature that will be good for softcore or hardcore gamers is the difficulty change. You can play on the easiest story level, a normal level, and the most difficult rating. Some things that happen in story mode are different than the hardest mode. One thing I have seen is if your coromon faints you have to release it into the wild. This makes it a mode for the super hardcore gamers. Its small items such as this make this title different than Pokemon.
Overall, I was able to beat this game in less than two hours. There is very little in the way of a story except for being a lonely Koala Bear looking for his mate. He is depressed most of the game and nothing good happens. I don't feel any personal connection with the characters, and pretty much beat the game just to see what happened.
Overall, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was set up to be one of the best things for GTA fans and it failed to hit that mark. It will now be remembered as a failure to launch title but I am sure Rockstar will step in and continue to fix some items within their game world. Released on November 11, 2021, this trilogy is listed at 59.99 USD and is available for all current and next-gen consoles and on PC as well. I hope for some updates soon. The games are playable but not as you remember them.
Overall, this game lacks any specific direction beyond what you have to figure out for yourself. You get no introduction to the character or the situation they face. There are game breaking bugs and things that cause frustrations that make someone not want to play the game anymore. That being said, this game has good environments and music. The game is now available on PlayStation 4 and is priced at $24.99 USD. If you like clunky, buggy games that look good but make you fight for any meaningful fun then this game is for you. I would not pay the price for this game though and would wait for a sale or even just watch YouTube videos if you are interested in it.
Overall, Overkill's The Walking Dead is a game that got better after release. It is currently priced at $60 USD. To me, this is a really high price considering how little you can do in the game. Each area is basically rinse and repeat of different missions. Currently, the game is available for PC, with an Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 release set for next year in February. It may be a good idea to wait for a sale on this one unless you really want to play the Walking Dead. Personally, if this game was like Dying Light, with the open world feels and different areas set up in that manner, then this would be a 10 rated game. As it is instanced areas of stop walkers from invading your base, to find the family, to oh the family is raiding you, it seems pretty much the same.
Overall, Sinner will start you off without knowing what to do, and it will continue to push you through harder and harder challenges while still not really knowing what it's all for. The game is currently available on Discord, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One for $18.99 USD. Is it worth even that? Maybe it is for someone who wants to play a Dark Souls type game with no levels to go through. It isn't a big cost so it is a little bit more palatable than say a sixty dollar game.
Overall, Mechstermination Force is a pretty good title for the Switch. I wish it had full levels like games had in the '90s. It would feel like a much fuller game, and I think people would have a lot more fun. For the very low price of $11.99 USD, you can't go wrong with the purchase of this game. Just be sure all you want to do is play against bosses. Other than that, have lots of fun with this game.
Overall, the game itself it the standard shooter from a third-person viewpoint. The controls are basic enough for younger fans to play, and not very difficult to learn. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is a PlayStation 4 exclusive and is set to release on April 11, 2019, priced at $59.99 USD. If you are a fan of the series, like a die-hard fan, definitely pick this up for yourself. If you are just someone looking at the game because it looks interesting, then I would wait until the price drops. I definitely would not have paid the price for this game just based on a gameplay trailer.
Overall the game is billed as Legos The Incredibles but the game itself may not hit that title. Coming in at 39.99 on Steam and 59.99 USD for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. It is out now and ready for you to go pick it up for whatever system you are using.
Overall, Grand Casino Tycoon is a fun title with a great atmosphere that you get to create with the different setups that you can create. The ambiance created by different floor tiles, music, and overall setup will help you make the decision to play this title. For 24.99 USD this is a no-brainer as a fun and cheap title to play. Other than the couple of glitches that I found this was an absolute blast to play.
Overall, Airborne Kingdom is a new style city-builder aimed at the casual player who wants to just try and build the best floating kingdom that they can. This title is currently $19.99 USD but is normally $24.99 USD, so it is a fairly cheap pickup for a nice relaxed time playing a city-builder. Hours may fly by if you are into this kind of game, and I know I spent well over four hours my first time playing just to get used to everything.
Overall, the Grandia HD Collection contains an awesome soundtrack, fair visuals, and fairly decent story. Both games combat is very fluid and has that something that newer games are missing with their combat system I think. Whether you played this game in your younger days, or this is the first time touching it, you will find the games very easy to get into, and the fact that you can carry it around with you on the Switch makes it that much easier to play. For the price of $39.99 USD, you too can own a fairly good and simple RPG series. For two games that is only 19.99 per game and very reasonable.
Overall, this year's game is one of the better ones that I have played in years. With the inclusion of voice acting for your main character in career mode, to the showcase mode taking one of my favorite wrestlers, Daniel Bryan, and walking through his career, it makes for a really fun and good time. They really worked on making a lot of different modes for people to have a lot of fun with, and it seems to be working, for me at least.
Overall, Immortal: Unchained is a very good game in my opinion. It has a great mix of difficulty, RPG, and a story that will make me want to continue playing this game until I have beaten it. I have spent several hours in the game and love the level design and the gameplay itself. The game itself comes in at $49.99 USD and is now available on PC through Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Once you become engaged in a fight the camera locks into one place until you leave the area that you are in. But as soon as you are under attack again it locks in. This makes for some difficult gameplay trying to figure out where everyone is.
Overall, Super Robot Wars 30 is a good addition to the series for fans of the previous titles. While it may not be the type of game I would play that doesn't stop me from appreciating the hard work that has been put into it. From the graphics to the audio and the story, it plays like an anime story that you play through. It is available now for the normal price of 59.99 USD for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows and it is currently on sale on Steam for 44.99 USD.
Overall, it was a fun game for what it is. It is a basic train builder, with fairly simple controls and a huge canvas for you to take creative control over. For the low price of $19.99 USD, you can play the game as you wish, and you will have the chance to relive moments from building the train tracks from your youth.
