Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

With Uncharted 4’s release, Naughty Dog has added another resplendent feather to their impressive cap. Whether you’re looking at graphics, so good that you’ll be surprised that your Playstation 4 doesn’t burst into flames, or the brilliant storyline, bringing to a conclusion on of the best game series ever released; you can’t help but be impressed.

uncharted_As with most things in life, I’m a “Give me the bad news first,” kind of person. There are some aspects of this game that fell a little flat. While previous Uncharted games included multiplayer, they have generally been rubbish, and felt like a pointless addition to the game. Uncharted’s Multiplayer never really brought anything new to the table and with other far better multiplayer games out there, adding a system that felt more like an afterthought, than not felt unnecessary and a complete waste. Uncharted 4 is no different. Combine this with the user of Micro transactions, which is becoming a fan taboo, was a terrible idea on the part of Naughty Dog.

New players to the Uncharted series, will feel a bit left out. There are many call backs to previous games and much of character story interactions and relationships are based on their shared history fleshed out over the previous games. That being said, if you own a Playstation 4 and have not played the previous Uncharted games, stop reading this, go to your nearest game store and purchase the Uncharted: Nathan Drake Collection immediately. Seriously… You won’t regret it. Go buy or borrow it. Shoo… Shoo..

Overwatch Beta Reaction : What did we think?

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqnKB22pOC0]

Blizzard, the company most famous for its long term MMORPG superstar World of Warcraft, has stepped out of its comfort zone this year with its release of Overwatch, a first person shooter that has worked its way to quite a few of the “top 10” lists of 2016. If you haven’t heard of Overwatch, you must be living under a rock, but you can refer to the trailer linked above for a good idea of what the game is.

Thankfully, Blizzard offered an open beta for gamers to check out the game before purchasing, and I got a chance to try it out for myself. This gave me an incredible insight into what the game would be, much more than I feel I’ve gotten from other betas. Most games can be taken at face value, with information hardly deviating from what you see in the trailers- minus the highly inaccurate cinematics that we all know we won’t see in the game itself.

Fallout 4

Fallout 4, an open world RPG post-apocalyptic sequel game to a long loved franchise, has been out well over a month. The hype was intense for months ahead of release, was preceded by its own game app, then released with editions including the ability to purchase your very own Pip Boy and use the game’s very own companion app, not to mention the entire anthology that was released soon before the premiere of Fallout 4. The base game alone came with a poster, high-lighting all the level-ups, also described and shown during commercials while downloading the game. It’s highly unlikely that any gamer, or any person who uses social media at all, to have not heard something about this game before and since its release.
