Infinity Ward the producers behind the first Call of Duty, and possibly the most successful and critically acclaimed Modern Warfare games (Modern Warfare 1 & 2) are at the helm again taking us back to our favourite protagonists in the franchise.
With the next Olympics taking place in Tokyo in the Summer of 2020, there will be plenty of games coming out, hoping to make a quick buck on the back of it. This is what usually happens when a big sporting event takes place. These games are sometimes rushed, and not completed to a good standard. However, with the might of SEGA and Nintendo behind it, would Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 fall into this category? Read my Rapid Review to find out.
I’m still glad that Game Freak took another turn and attempted to try something new, which is fun, but hard to get into and is not for everybody. I hope you enjoyed the review and I left an impression about what Little Town Hero is. I certainly was challenged a lot with that game – as a reviewer and a gamer.
Being in charge of a virtual city (and, I imagine, a real city) can be stressful, but rewarding. Take Cities: Skylines for example; there’s the pressure of keeping people happy, but the fun of constructing your own city and seeing it thrive. Now, add being situated in a frozen wasteland where people need warmth and food to survive. The pressure is significantly heightened, and this is what Frostpunk is all about.
If you have stuck with me this far into the review, I think it goes without saying that this is one of my favourite series ever, and I could not recommend it enough. If you are scrolling through to see my final thoughts, this collection is near perfect, and if you are a horror fan, then you need to have it on your system.
It’s easy to see why this game has garnered the fandom that it has. From memes to coffee shops all over the place putting up “No Geese” signs (mimicking an act done in the game), this game is beyond popular. This game has even gone as far as to beat the new Link’s Awakening off the top spot of the digital charts in the USA! It’s a true underdog story, and all the success is truly deserved. Pick this game up, and you will not regret it, and remember, press Y to honk!
AI: The Somnium Files ended up being one of my favourite games of the year so far, so if it sounds up your street then I would suggest you give it a try. It’s also pretty good value, as I went through the game at a reasonable clip and it still took almost 24 hours to get to the true ending.
Iceborne, the newest expansion to 2018’s Monster Hunter World builds upon the series in classic fashion, much like previous western releases in the series have. The games often released in Japan and then released in the west a year later with additional content. That is also where the expansions biggest barrier lies: You must complete the main story of Monster Hunter World to engage with Iceborne. The expansion is more difficult, introducing the master rank hunts, with more difficult monsters that will require you to put your skills to the test to overcome each new challenge.
DAEMON X MACHINA is the latest release from Marvelous! Formerly Marvelous Entertainment, a Japanese Studio initially founded in 2011, with other switch titles such as the Kagura series, as well as No More Heroes. They also have producer Kenichiro Tsukuda, who led the development of the game and is famed for his storytelling and production of the Armored Core series of games for the PlayStation.
