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.
While Mass Effect is almost double digits in age, it still plays like a young game
This past week has been a joy for me, I’ve finally had a chance to sit down and play the first Mass Effect. I’ve owned this game for at least 3 years and only I ever managed to put a couple hours into it over the first days.
I remembered that the makers of Mass Effect, BioWare also made the amazing Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic so I knew this was the type of RPG (Role Playing Game) that needed many an hour. So, since this week Mags went on a girl’s holiday to Marrakech, I took time off and finally played Mass Effect the way it’s meant to be played: full immersion.
The latest from Tom Clancy and Ubisoft is nothing short of breathtaking.
Since The Division was released back on the 8th of March 2016 I know I’m a little late, but as the saying goes "better late than never". I got my copy while I was on holiday in Italy back in June and I try to play as much as I can which isn’t as much as I’d like… because of life and shit. The Division is a perfect mix of a RPG (Role Playing Game) and a 3rd person (I personally found it close to Gears of War), set in the open world sandbox of Manhattan, though seems to be mainly based between 14th street (south) and 59th (north), and I can only assume more of the city will open up when addition patches are made public.
