Recently released on the PlayStation 4, Predator: Hunting Grounds pits four players against the eponymous Predator. Bowman took the title for a spin - here are his thoughts on the nostalgia-fueled shooter.
Phantasy Star Online 2 is a game that many in the west are only just getting introduced to. While the game has been released in Japan for nearly 8 years, this SEGA institution still garners a substantial amount of fanfare from its admirers around the globe. Now with a PC launch looming, and years-worth of content to explore, is Phantasy Star Online 2 worth the wait, or is it too little too late?
Trials of Mana is a fantastic remake of an Action RPG that tragically never came to the West until recently. It is evident that great care has been taken to create an experience as close to the original as possible, although liberties to improve upon the story should have been taken on. Although the combat may get repetitive and boss battles are rarely challenging, Trials has a ton of charm and fun that is easily accessible for new players and old fans alike.
Animal Crossing is a different kind of game. It isn't just that the world is generally run by anthropomorphic animals, or the fact that fossils, fruits and fish are big moneymakers in the economy. But is New Horizons a new adventure, or simply another rehash?
Kingdom Under Fire 2 has gotten off to a solid start, and I honestly had a ton of fun playing. Unfortunately, for me, the gender locked classes are a pretty big deal, and having issues with finding groups to do things can be frustrating. One problem is currently it’s easy to knock out the dailies, which is nice because we aren’t endlessly grinding our faces on, but once people get their dailies done, the server can feel a bit like a ghost town. They do have a December patch planned and new content is on the way, so hopefully, they’ll be able to reach a good state of equilibrium.
Star Wars: The Old Republic – Onslaught 6.0 Patch has brought new features to the game which includes new story content, two planets, a flashpoint, an operation, a gearing system, and quality of life updates. It is a lot but the new DLC feels like it could have been so much more.
With all of the issues that followed ArcheAge Unchained through its launch, is the game in its current state worth playing? Join Emily for her final review as she weighs the pros and cons of a fun, but fundamentally flawed game.
