Ubisoft has decided to change things up with their Far Cry series, this time by releasing a direct sequel. Some may argue that Far Cry Primal, or Far Cry Predator where their first sequels. Really though, Predator was more of a DLC, and Primal was a prequel at the most. New Dawn, though chronological, falls in place seventeen years after the ending events of Far Cry 5 (spoilers ahead). So after the bombs dropped, everyone went underground to live for six years, then finally pop up to find a vibrant and colorful post-apocalyptic future. Let’s get into the meat and potatoes of the game, though.
Warning: major spoilers ahead.
This past weekend saw the private beta of Tom Clancy's Division 2, and there was a fair bit of content on offer. Between two main story missions, the Dark Zone, a handful of side missions, side activities, and random world events, we got a good taste of what the full release could have in store. In something of a counter to the Anthem beta and Anthem's marketing in general, the look we got at Division 2 even gave us some of the endgame.
It has been well over a year since I last played this wonderful little game, and I still remember everything that made it so endearing to play with one of my closest friends who recommended it to and bought for me as a birthday gift. I'm forever grateful that he did (as a side note, he's an artist, and the beautiful art style in this game is coincidently so similar to his! Check out his page to see what I mean).
Capcom is off to a hot start in 2019 with Resident Evil 2. The game builds off of Resident Evil 7's return to survival horror without sacrificing any of the action that previous games have been known for.
I’m a gamer. I was there when the original Nintendo first came out, and I remember begging my parents for a Super Nintendo when that was announced. It was something that I had to have. I remember playing Super Mario Brothers and getting frustrated at levels 8-1 and 8-8. I could never get past those. My sister would always tell our family members that I was born with a video cord instead of an umbilical cord because I played games constantly. Every day after school I would come home and quickly do my homework before firing up the Super Nintendo and playing for hours on end.
Dark Souls—two words that every gamer knows and associates with rage and pride. But why do we play them? Why are they held so high and yet “Souls like” games are looked down on?
Hello, and welcome back to Second Chances where I give another shot to the maligned and forgotten, and I'm making a substitution here.
Comfort is crucial when gaming. Like collapsing into a soft bed with firm pillows after a long day of work, or going on a run in your favorite sneakers, you're at your best when these accessories fit your preference. If you’re like me, you probably spend more time playing video games than you do running, and sleeping just barely has the lead between all three. And also if you’re like me, you probably got your start in gaming in the living room on a big couch, or your dad's extra large reclining chair, or, in times of great need, the floor.
When Spyro the Dragon and its sequels came out for the Playstation in the late 90s, they were a smash hit, and enchanted players with its wonderful colors and fun platforming gameplay. Now, after 20 years, Insomiac, Activision, and Toys for Bob have completely remastered the trilogy as: The Reignited Trilogy for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Gaming is a lifelong hobby, but as we get older, it's wise to invest in an ergonomic gaming chair. I'm only in my 20s, but I'm already starting to get backaches if I play for hours without proper back support. Regardless of if you're a console gamer or a member of the PC master race, playing from a comfortable spot is more enjoyable, and better for your health in the long run.
Yeah, I'm a video game nerd, what are you going to do about it?
