Hey everyone. This month has been spent working on two 3DS reviews, and shopping for hurricane supplies. I know it’s been awhile since I last wrote anything on here. Preparing for Hurricane Matthew put everything on hold. Now that it’s gone I’ll have more free time to do what I want, but I’m expecting that to change since that damn hurricane is supposed to turn around and come back to Florida. There’s even a chance that it’ll merge with another hurricane out there. Fun right?
I was one of the lucky few not to lose power during the hurricane so I gamed the night away while Matthew beat the shit out of my trash cans outside. I decided to play through my favorite Dark Souls game again. I’m about 10 hours into Dark Souls II and I’m loving every second of it. I know that most Dark Souls players like to shit on Dark Souls II for some reason, but it’s the best game in the series in my opinion. It didn’t try to cater to Dark Souls 1 fans like Dark Souls III and it brought some great changes to the series too.
I was interested in Mafia 3 after watching some gameplay on Youtube, but once I learned it was capped to 30fps I put it on my no buy list because I don’t deal with games capped at 30fps anymore. That’s one of the reasons why I started gaming on the PC. 2K has announced that a 60fps patch will be releasing so I guess we’ll wait and see how long that takes to happen.
I’ve put about 20 hours into Shin Megami Tensei IV. My review is still a long way off, but I’m really enjoying it and I want to take my time with the game.
I’m working on a review for both Fire Emblem Awakening, and Conquest. I think Awakening is the best game I’ve played on 3DS. I wish I could say the same about Birthright/Conquest. I was incredibly disappointed in the new Fire Emblem games. They’re not bad games, but they’re not great either.
The first expansion for Dark Souls III is almost here and I’m really excited about it. I can’t wait to get back into it and kick some more ass. I’m kind of hoping that poise makes a return because I really miss it.
Civilization VI also releases this month and if you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know I love this series to death. Civilization VI is definitely a day one buy for me. Everything I’ve seen on it so far has me really excited about it and I can’t wait to conquer the world again when it releases.
I’ve been watching a lot of Netflix lately. I binge watched Luke Cage, and Jessica Jones and really liked both of them. I have reviews coming for both of those shows and seasons 1, and 2 of Daredevil. My Netflix binge watching spree isn’t going to end any time soon because season 4 of Arrow just released on it and I plan on watching all 20+ episodes of it in a two day span if I can.
I really want to delete The Crew from my PC, but my kids love the game so I can’t bring myself to get rid of something I know they like. I’m hoping that when I get Forza they’ll forget all about The Crew :).
What have you been up to lately?
