At the end of 2018 a thousand childhood memories came rushing back to me when I heard the news: Spyro was coming back! The reignited trilogy was going to enable me to play the games I loved as a kid and I was so excited. I got the game for Christmas but only started playing it this last month and it’s safe to say that I am in LOVE.
We all know Fortnite is the most popular game almost ever! At least in pop culture. I never saw a game blow up like Fortnite and I believe Fortnite helped advance the gaming industry years in advance. Yes, you can say MindCraft was one of the first games to be really big and make gaming a norm in today's society. However, Fortnite is different in many ways. I have never seen a game that created more successful streamers like Ninja, Tfue, and TSM_Myth, just to name a few. Before, they were not highly recognizable names, but because of Fortnite, that completely changed they are now some of the biggest names not only on Twitch but even YouTube and Twitter. For example, Ninja has about 21 million followers on YouTube, Tfue has about close to 10 million, and TSM_Myth has about 4 million. I only named three people, but I can probably name you about fifty more people who became insanely successful just from Fortnite alone.
The time has come again for me to do my official review of Fortnite's latest season. I did one for Season 7 and now Season 8 gets its turn. In this review I shall be looking at the Map Changes, Battle Pass and the newly added Canons. This season has had mixed thoughts and opinions, some saying it is the best season yet and some replying with "Are you mad? It's ****." This review will cover both the Positives and Negatives!
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.
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.
