Although it's against the whole concept of being a gaming writer, I have done everything in my power to avoid Death Stranding since it's release.. The game's story is intended to be a surprise to the player and you're not supposed to figure it out until part way through, so I wanted to experience it properly. I would suggest doing this too if you can.
I'm not too far into the story yet but I can't help plan my days around making time to play more. With massive amounts of cut scenes, it really feels like watching an amazing movie that you will get sucked into very quickly.
I'll be the first to admit that it won't be a game that everyone enjoys. It can be extremely tedious and your decisions will impact you more than they would in other games. Even something as small as carrying items is altered to be a task where you'll have to position things in your backpack in order to best balance yourself. If you find yourself losing balance, grabbing the left or right strap on your backpack will balance you. The game quickly begins to feel like you're actually moving across the landscape yourself.
Based on the small portion of the game that I have played so far I would highly suggest everyone try out Death Stranding. Being so unusual compared to other games I can’t even say “If you like X than you’ll also like this”. It’s something you’ll have to try out and see for yourself.
Death Stranding is highly unusual with an immense amount of story to it. Feeling more like a playable movie than a video game it will definitely draw you in, whether you’re playing or just watching someone else play.
Playstation has come out with everyone's best interests at heart. Our wallets. With the free release of 10 games for both 2D and the VR experience you're sure to find something that interests you. Assuming that you play Playstation that is.
I spent a lot of time looking into what games were worth spending money on for my VR headset. After a lot of time looking into what was out there and testing out a bunch of free ones I landed on BeatSaber being my first real purchase.
Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.
The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.
With the latest update to Stardew Valley there’s more reason than ever to get back into the game! Especially if you own it on console. SPLIT SCREEN CO-OP!!!!! This was a long time coming but even so I still am taken back by how much extra enjoyment is added to the game by playing it split screen with my partner.
Looking for a mobile game that not only has massive draw but will also get you out of the house? Something that you can play with others and even meet new people through? Ingress from Niantic is the game you're looking for.
There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.
So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
