I never thought I’d willingly play a horror game, let alone review one. They normally aren’t for me. I’m a wimp, and I can’t stand getting spooked. Yet every moment that I’m not playing Phasmophobia, I want to be. I’ll tremble, and scream and I’ll need to change my shirt after every game thanks to anxiety sweat, but I still come back for more.
As popular and beloved as Assassin’s Creed Origins and Odyssey were, they received a fair amount of criticism. Whether or not such criticisms were justified or not is in the eye of the beholder, but there is no denying that Ubisoft took them to heart.
Star Kings is the third and possibly final expansion for Age of Wonders: Planetfall. If you don’t know, Planetfall is a fantastic 4X game with a large focus on tactical combat.
Change is scary. As someone who really enjoyed Odyssey, I was a little nervous going into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. I knew Ubisoft had made some significant changes to the formula ahead of time, and I was concerned that I wouldn’t agree with them.
If I were to describe Risk of Rain 2 purely in game terms, such as a rogue-lite shooter. It would probably paint a picture in your mind, it might even lead you to believe that it’s another one of “those” and make you exit this review.
Gotta recruit them all would be an accurate slogan to explain my time with the game. Sure, at its core, Watch Dogs Legion is a third person shooting/sneaking/driving game. But its ambitious play as anyone system and NPC simulation gently nudge it into the realm of immersive sims.
