As of about a month ago, I can officially say I finished The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Except for some undiscovered places in Skellige, I’ve seen basically everything. At least, I’ve done all the quests available in each location. Okay, so I haven’t been everywhere, but I 100% completed the DLC, and I’ve done basically every quest in the main game, not including the Gwent quests and some horse races.
For me, starting something new is always intimidating, and starting a new open world game is intimidating turned up to eleven. There are so many things to do, so many places to go, that I feel like I have to look behind every rock lest I miss something important.
Slaying dragons, saving villages, and exploring dungeons are all unquestionably an important part of Dungeons and Dragons, and I doubt I’m the only player out there who loves hearing the words, “Roll initiative!” (Well, usually – there have definitely been some encounters filled with dread!)
RPG with a cyborg twist? Yes please. Warframe begins with a nice cinematic background story to catch you up to what's going on as you get to the character selection screen. There is an amazing fight scene showing how fierce the warframes were before you get to pick up where they left off.
Some of the most expected new features when a new FIFA game comes out are the skill updates, and EA has finally announced all the changes for FIFA 21.
When the Outer Worlds was announced, I was instantly intrigued by the sweet temptations of the gameplay loop of role playing rigamorale. While not the greatest RPG fanatic of all time (I still struggle in Skyrim & still die A LOT in Fallout 1), I still love the genre and its beginning to suck away all my free time like a fresh newborn. Even then, I had just been gifted a glorious Nintendo Switch for my birthday, and was eager to play more games on the go like those glorious gamers in the commercials. Buying every story or RPG based game on the Switch store I could, after beating Breath of the Wild & Skyrim my spirit longed for rich role playing realism in a sea of games that seemed eager to be abandoned by fearful developer pirates who just wanted a quick hand of loot. Quickly after this I picked up the Witcher 3, a game I previous bought on PS4 but almost instantaneously disliked at the time due to my immature immediate indecisiveness to keep playing, grinding, etc. The game sat on my shelf for about a year, but after buying it on the switch, it instantly became one of my instant favorites & I was packing my bags for the RPG bandwagon.
I built my first PC, threw a bunch of high-powered parts in, it was time to take it for a run. Unfortunately for the entire gaming world, Cyberpunk 2077 was delayed. Again. Kudos for CD Projekt Red for QC, but dammit, I wanted to play! We would have a new president before we would have CP2077.
Hello, and welcome back to Silver Linings where I've leveled up in my quest for the maligned, forgotten, and ignored.
First, I like Final Fantasy VII Remake, it is an excellent game that attracted both newcomers and old gamers (like me). Actually it was one of the most nostalgic thing happen to the gaming industry in the last recent years. It also has one of the most beautiful graphics when compared to other top AAA games. It might have some issues, in the other hand, it solved some of the problems that can be found in the current JRPG games, specially the ones that have real-time battle system such as Final Fantasy XV. One of those is battle. It introduced a new battle system that merge between turn-based and real-time combat, which was really welcomed by most of the fans (although some still wished turn-based system to come back, again like me). It also introduced side quest system (though, they are lengthy, I will talk about that later), but it "somehow" an extra part of the game which was "in most of its parts" enjoyable. It also introduced a new materia and weapon upgrade system, which added a way for the player to build different strategies for battles. But that are just few aspects, major ones actually, the rest are .. well.. felt normal, and sometimes weird.
As we know the fallout game series is becoming the biggest game for the franchise (Bethesda game studio). However, Fallout 5 hasn’t been announced yet and isn’t expected to be announced but fallout 5 still has potential.
As a long term observer, short term player and perputally stuck as the DM, Dungeons and Dragons recently has been a god send to all of us. Those who are new, welcome to the club. Those who are returning with your new found extra time, welcome back I hope you remember where you left your dice! Those who've been playing this whole time? We can talk in Thieves' Cant and infurate the rest with our whispery secrets.
Fallout 76, even before its release date, was the subject of ridicule and disappointment from many long-time fans. But you didn't need me to tell you that, did you? No. I'm sure you've already heard about the game, its clunky building that crashes more often than it works, the damn near empty areas just leaving the player bored, and of course the *shivers* microtransactions. I'd say it’s a pretty fair assumption that there were more people disappointed with fallout 76 than there were left happy.
