Red Dead Redemption 2: Review

I haven’t been this excited for a new release in a long, long time. Like many people, I played the original Red Dead Redemption at release and loved it. I knew we would get another game in the series eventually, I didn’t expect it to take eight years. Once you start playing Red Dead Redemption 2 you can see why it took so long. Red Dead Redemption sits in my Top 5 favorite games of all-time. I expected greatness for RDR2. Here are my thoughts.

TL,DR: At the end, as usual.

No spoilers.

Detroit: Become Human Review

I am really glad I played this game when I did. I missed it earlier in the year when it came out. But, I needed something to fill my time between Marvel’s Spider-Man and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, two very gameplay heavy games, and Detroit: Become Human filled that gap nicely. I treated this game like a long movie and it feels right at home with that mindset.

Also, I needed a palette cleanser after getting annoyed at the Spider-Man platinum and Detroit: Become Human really helped get me back in the gaming mentality.

TL,DR: At the end, as per usual.

Also, no spoilers in the text of my review, but images will probably have spoilers. A review with images is no fun, so I felt like I needed them. But, again they will probably have spoilers.

Mass Effect Review

20180901221412_1.jpg

Playtime: 14 hours and 3 minutes. The game is not very long, which is amazing! I feel like games have become bloated. There is no bloat here. Only fun.

I’ve felt a bit odd never actually reviewing Mass Effect for this site. The series is easily my favorite of all-time. I have no misconceptions about some of the negatives with the game, but those do not detract from the overall amazing experience of the entire series. I’ve played the series through probably 7 times through on Xbox 360. I’ve played Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 probably more than 10 times each. I’m always impressed each time I play. I figured that since I have a computer capable, it was time for me to play through them on PC.

This is a review for Mass Effect on PC. I will review Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 as I complete them.

TL,DR: At the end, as per usual.

Spoilers!! Do not read or look at the pictures this if you’ve yet to play Mass Effect and the accompanying DLC. But, really you’ve had ten years, what are you waiting for?

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.

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

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.

Monster Hunter: World Review

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.
