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.

Let’s Talk Level-5 Part 1

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

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.

Nintendo as a Software Developer

I want to see Nintendo move away from hardware and focus entirely on software. I think that they are some of the best developers in the business and their games deserve to be played by more people. And I’m not even that much of a fan of Nintendo’s properties.

As I’ve mentioned before, I couldn’t get into Breath of the Wild and I don’t have any intention to play Mario Odyssey. But, while most major developers in the industry dilute their games with garbage microtransactions, Nintendo just makes great games.
