Better late than never.
I have been as busy as hell. Don’t know if this affects my appetite for games.
So far, this year’s new release has been pretty flat to me. Hopefully the big names in October and November can bring some changes.
Far Cry 3 (PC)
If I was forced to accept the cursed term “walking simulator” as a proper game genre, my last wish would be that those post-modern developers can learn something from Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and of course, its predecessor Human Revolution.
My opinions on games I played in July, 2016
Short opinions on games I played in the second quarter of 2016.
I opened the blog thinking I can write a full fledged article for every single game I played. That turned out to be one of the numerous daydreams I had everyday. However, I feel bad not leaving any write-ups for those games I played. Therefore I will push myself to write the thoughts on games which did not get a full…
Before you bury yourself with Starbound and No Man’s Sky, take a look at the answer from an aged giant to this new trend of gaming. What Dragon Quest Builders brings is a polished and caring experience which patiently guide you through its world and reward you constantly, together with the best narration and character…
The week after I finished Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma, I did not thinking about the plot too much. Rather, I spent more time pondering why I enjoy this game despite of its imperfectness.
I hold the last mission of Blood and Wine to the last, but still the time has finally come to say good bye to Geralt. If we do not want this departure to be a sad one, we should believe that this game is just the beginning of the beginning. It is not perfect, not ground breaking, but it convince me the seemingly…
This year’s E3 is just okay for me and it is slightly on the lower side of “okay”. Interesting new announced titles are minimal. Some titles who have been staying in stealth either are still hiding their charm or just cannot meet the expectation. VR is spending every resource in the world just to say nothing other…
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is more like a show off rather than a service to please the consumers. Instead of providing a huge list of weapons, skills, customization and missions to satisfy the player, it sticks to what it want to do.
After finishing MGS4, I tried a little of every game in the collection. As my schedule got tightened, I continued only with Peace Walker, which is more appealing to me. I know I am on the wrong chronicle order again, but I believe I made the right choice.
Is this game really average, or I am just tired of this franchise?
[This is my comment on this game without major spoiler. In the future I might write something about some more personal opinions about its plot in detail. If I said anything funny to you, please note that I am completely a novice to visual novels.]
I hate and like the first half of 2016. There is really no new release to be excited for, but that means I got time to take care of other things, among them are some old games I want to experience, like Chrono Trigger.
I am feeling much better now...
This review will be done in two parts.
