Bioware Part 1: Pre-EA

I hear people often say that “EA ruined Bioware” or some variation of the sort. I’ve always wondered if it’s true. I’ve been a fan of the studio since the original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Jade Empire. When I played those games I didn’t really understand gaming studios or the creators of games. Eventually, Bioware would become one of my favorite game studios. Lately, I’ve been wondering if EA’s acquisition of Bioware actually did “ruin” or hurt the developers. Let’s find out.

TL,DR: At the bottom, as usual.

FFXII and Jurassic World: Evolution

I’ve been without internet for about 6 weeks so I’ve been focused on playing some single player. Not a fan. I need some multiplayer action to feel complete. PUBG has been calling my name. Without internet, I’ve been focusing on Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age and Jurassic World Evolution. Neither of which has really grabbed my attention wholeheartedly.

I am bored of Final Fantasy XII and might call my 30 hours good, while wait to jump back into Jurassic World Evolution when I can get the game updated.

For now, here are my thoughts on the games so far.

TL; DR: If you aren’t a series die hard, I would just avoid both of these games.

E3 Thoughts

I look forward to E3 every year thinking we’ll see some phenomenal new games. I might be in the minority but it I think this year was whelming at best. Not overwhelming, not underwhelming, just whelming. I think the coolest news or most interesting announcements come from games we won’t be seeing for a few years at least.

Here are my thoughts on E3 2018.

Definitely not a Call of Duty: Black Ops III Review. And definitely a new Review section.

Not A Black Ops III Review

Don’t play Black Ops III if you haven’t. That’s the TL,DR for this post.

If my Modern Warfare 2 playtime, 1344 hours, is any indication, I used to consider myself an “expert” in the series. Either I got really bad at FPS on consoles…or Call of Duty games just got worse.

After playing and finishing Black Ops III, I have finally realized that Call of Duty is not what it once was. I’ve said many times that I’m finished with the series, “Never to return.” Maybe this time is different.Call of Duty®_ Black Ops III_20180527103932.png

Sony’s First Party Stable

God of War_20180515181950.png

Every time I think one of Sony’s development teams makes the “game of the generation” or best game in years another Sony studio shows them up almost instantly.

So far in 2018, we got God of War. In 2017 we got Horizon Zero Dawn. In 2016 we got Uncharted 4. In 2015 we got Bloodborne. Granted Bloodborne, which I’ve yet to play, was developed by both Japan Studio and FromSoftware but published by Sony. I’m going to call it a first-party title.

God of War Review

I had to take an extended break from the site to focus on finishing college. Now that I’m done, I should have a better schedule to refocus on the site.

For now, I’ve got a God of War review ready to go. Full disclosure: Like many other reviews for God of War, I think the game is incredible.

Thanks for reading. TL,DR at the end as per usual.

No Spoilers.

The Division: Review

I played The Division at launch with a group of friends and enjoyed my time with it immensely. The campaign was a blast to play with a squad and then the dark zone had great elements that got you excited and nervous to extract gear, that usually wasn’t that good. After a couple years away, I decided to dive back into the game on PC.

TL,DR at the bottom.
