In the spirit of Thanksgiving and gaming, I’ve been thinking about what games inspired my passion for the industry. I’m confident that Crystalis for the NES is the game that started my appreciation for the medium.
Two of my most played games of all time are MMOs. The first being Guild Wars and the second being FFXIV: A Realm Reborn. I think if I were to make my own MMO I would combine different aspects from each of those games to make my ultimate MMO.
Generally, I don’t like playing FFXIV as much as I liked playing Guild Wars. But, I like how FFXIV looks compared to Guild Wars.
Here’s how I would make the best MMO by combining the previously mentioned games.
Enjoy some pictures of my FFXIV adventures while you read. The pictures contain spoilers for in game characters and areas of the world.
TL, DR: At the end as always.
Ni No Kuni 2:
I’ve been playing Ni No Kuni 2 on PC and have clocked around 6 hours so far. This is the first PS4 game from Level-5 and their first console game since the first Ni No Kuni
Here are my thoughts on the game so far.
More Level-5 talk.
This time let’s examine the PS3 titles and downturn in reception from the PS2 games.
Alright, so I think it’s finally time to delve into a new style work. I’ve been wanting to draw attention to different developers for a while and with the release of Ni No Kuni 2 on March 23, 2018, now is the perfect time to delve into my history with Level-5
I’ve always loved Level-5 games since I played Dark Cloud 2 or Dark Chronicle, depending on where you live. I will say that as much as I love Level-5 games, I can never finish them.
I think this work will likely be in a few different parts to help focus on different console eras. I have zero experience with their handheld games so I won’t go into them at all, even if they though Level-5 has had great success on the 3DS.
Let’s get into it.
Let’s talk PUBG. I think if you’ve been playing PUBG you’ve probably been playing for a many hours. Here are some of my “advanced” tips for people who want to get better at the game. While my mechanics are good, I know people will have better mechanics than me so I try to out think enemy players and be better prepared for a variety of situations.
Monster Hunter: World Review
Finally, a real review for Monster Hunter: World. I didn’t expect to be hooked for this game as much as I am. I’ve played roughly 25 hours per week since launch and I’m only now starting to feel some slow down.
This game is a great start to 2018.
As per usual, TL,DR at the bottom.
Warning: Spoilers for monsters encountered during the main story and regions of the game. None of these monsters should be a “surprise” but are things you will encounter with 100% certainty in the game.
In a non-surprising turn of events, Rockstar delayed Red Dead Redemption 2 has been delayed to later in the year, October 26th, to be exact. Good. Studios need to be more okay with delaying games in order to create a better product. I understand some studios can’t do that because they don’t have the funds, but Rockstar certainly does after the incredible success that is GTA Online.
And speaking of online, there’s no way RDR2 doesn’t have a major online component. And apparently, according to Trusted Reviews, it’s going to have some sort of Battle Royale à la PUBG as well.
Go check out the update on the game here, they’ve got some really great screenshots and probably some spoilers so be warned.
While I’m still playing Monster Hunter: World I need to take some time to write about something else for my own sanity and to stave off the addiction of monster murdering. This will probably seem like a peculiar post. I want to talk about two games I’ll likely never play. Cuphead and Dragon Ball FighterZ.
Why am I talking about these games then?
Well, I think they both look fantastic. I’ll break it down why below.
