It’s been a while since a game has given me such an emotional rollercoaster ride.
When I first heard about the game Sea of Thieves I was told to think of an MMO version of Assassin's Creed Black Flag, but without the assassin aspect, so my expectations were high. Sadly, I missed the early access testing, but I had read positive things.
Even with its controversy, EA have released an amazing game.
I was one of those people who pre-ordered Star Wars Battlefront II right after the Beta, I’d seen what was on offer and liked it. Even when all the controversy came up regarding the loot box situation, I just thought 'I can play this without spending the extra’ and I can proudly say that I haven't spent a dime AND unlocked at least one of the premium characters.
GTA V is the game that just keeps on giving.
Grand Theft Auto V initially came out way back in 2013 with its online component following just two weeks later. But what sets GTA apart from other games series is the DLC’s (Down Loadable Content) are free and really fucking good.
Call it old and outdated all you want, but Halo: Combat Evolved changed the First Person Shooter genre forever.
Back in 2001 it seemed the console wars were over and it looked like PlayStation had won with the PS2, which had come out just the year before, since Sega had discontinued manufacturing the Dreamcast after just under 2 years and fell off the radar and while Nintendo would eventually bring out the GameCube (which I think suited younger gamers rather than a more mature audience) they felt like they were more interested in the hand-held side of things. But all that changed when Microsoft decided they wanted in on the action and brought the Xbox system to the table. Upon its release, the Xbox had a small handful of games ready to go, but one of them would change the gaming world - Halo: Combat Evolved.
Rise of Iron is Destiny’s 4th and final expansion before next year’s sequel, so is it worth it?
Word of warning, if you don’t play Destiny you’re going to struggle following this.
Released almost exactly on the 2nd anniversary of Destiny, Rise of Iron deals with the fabled Iron Lords that keep being mentioned but never seen. Turns out they were some of the first Guardian’s after The Collapse and set up something like an Arthurian style group to protect the remnants of humanity. About 400 years before the game’s setting, the Iron Lords rediscovered SIVA, a virus-like nanotechnology that can build ships and cities within days, the Lords figure they can use SIVA to kick start the second coming of humanity.
