In this bi-weekly column we tally up the news from around the almost-MMO-verse and offer our thoughts on the ins and outs of the titles that are big, but maybe not quite "Massive".
t's been a little over two years since the last time I took Deacon St. John for a joyride in the freaker filled mountains of a post Zombie-apocalyptic Oregon. Originally released on the PlayStation 4 in 2019, Days Gone returns for a second ride by becoming the second first party PlayStation exclusive released for PC. How does the experience hold up?
Hood Outlaws & Legends can be a fun game. Can be is the operative phrase here, as the "fun factor" is heavily dependent on a number of variables, most important being simply who you are playing with. A fantastic concept on paper, Hood stumbles a bit with its execution. Couple this with a subpar PC port and Hood feels just a little half baked in the end.
Rome: Total War is one of Bradford's favorite Total War games of all time, so jumping back in with its remastered version brought back a lot of memories. However, how does the experience, built originally in 2004 hold up here in 2021, even with the new improvements brough by Feral? Surprisingly well, actually.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is a robust game. Jason took to the CRPG, whose beta comprises of about 60 hours worth of content, for a spin. Here are his thoughts.
Jason has been plotting ways to create his own Dr. Evil-esque empire, however those pesky moral issues are getting in the way of accomplish this in real life. Thankfully Evil Genius 2: World Domination allows him to do so in a video game without any of the ramifications. Here's our review.
Hitman 3 caps off the World of Assassination Trilogy that began with 2016's episodic treatment of the legendary series. Is this send off worth your time in the end? Jason reviews Hitman 3, taking Agent 47, AKA a Human Swiss Army Knife, out for a spin.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity has left our reviewer, Jason, conflicted. On one hand it's one of the most efficient uses of Musou formula, but he can't help be feel it could have stuck its landing better. Here's our review of the latest offering from Nintendo.
