Most Anticipated Games of 2017, Part Five: Destiny 2

Destiny has had a rocky three years and didn’t quite live up to the initial hype surrounding it. Naturally one would assume that Bungie, the team behind the Halo franchise, would excel in making a space opera first-person shooter in the vain of an MMORPG. Despite its fantastic setting and weapons, the shared-world shooter facedContinue reading “Most Anticipated Games of 2017, Part Five: Destiny 2”

Most Anticipated Games of 2017, Part Three: Thimbleweed Park

Having spent a lot of time playing adventure games during my teenage years, it is exciting to see the genre continue to have a place in the modern gaming ecosystem. Developers like Telltale Games offer a more story-based type of adventure game while The Odd Gentlemen have resurrected the beloved King’s Quest franchise.

Most Anticipated Games of 2017, Part Two: Tacoma

The Fullbright Company have certainly made a name for themselves after releasing their first-person exploration title, Gone Home.

Two weeks ago I would have never imagined that a Resident Evil game would be one of my most anticipated.

Previously I hadContinue reading “Most Anticipated Games of 2017, Part One: Resident Evil 7”

However they always seem toContinue reading “Most Anticipated Games of 2016, Part Three: Mass Effect Andromeda”

Most Anticipated Games of 2016, Part Two: Cuphead

Indie games have continued to excite me since I first played games like Braid, Super Meat Boy, Limbo, and Bastion.  It has been roughly eight years since services like Xbox Live Arcade launched and games like this were readily available for download on all major platforms, but now I can hardly imagine a world without them.Continue reading “Most Anticipated Games of 2016, Part Two: Cuphead”

Most Anticipated Games of 2016, Part One: Firewatch

Toward the end of 2015, I was already amped up and ready for the long list of promising 2016 games.  There’s no doubt that 2015 was one of the greatest in recent years for gaming, but I began to fall out of touch with many of the massive open-world games.  This year has me soContinue reading “Most Anticipated Games of 2016, Part One: Firewatch”
