Let me say before I begin that I only played the single player campaign. I’m aware that there is a whole new set of things to do and unlock in the Battlemode multiplayer, but I messed around with none of it.
Take the big things there are to love about a Fallout game, now throw them into an outer space environment, see what you’ve got now? That’s The Outer Worlds.
I want to start with two things. First I have not played the first three games in this series but I wanted to give them a shot because second I love a good stealth game, and I have been looking for a really good one for a while, and it seemed like sneaking around was an integral part of this title.
I’ll start with a question. Do you love the story telling style of the Uncharted games? You know with the semi-linear levels, quicktime events, and integrated stories. When FromSoftware came out with Bloodbourne did you think it was a step in the perfect direction from the Dark Souls series? If you answered yes to both those questions then regardless of your Star Wars fandom, Fallen Order is probably a title for you.
First off, I want to say that I played this game solo. The reason I think that’s important to say up front is because it seems like this title is supposed to be a multi-player party type game. Thing is even though it is SUPPOSED to be “fun with friends”, after giving it a shot, I am thoroughly convinced that this game would actually be a whole lot harder and definitely tons more frustrating if I played it with someone else than it was to play all by myself.
Let me say before I begin that I have played, Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and was a fan of all three. Though I have to admit I didn’t make it all the way through the pre-sequel and I normally like to complete a game. Borderlands 3 is more of the same of the first three games, and that is both a good and a bad thing.
What would you get if you took a slice of Twilight Zone, a sprinkle of X-Files, finished it off with a dab of Twin Peaks and turned it into a video game? You’d get Control.
Little Inferno is little more than a weird virtual fireplace. It doesn’t however teach you anything about building or sustaining an actual realistic fire, it kind of plays into what one might think of as pyromania in an odd way. I say that because of who you are in the game and what you are burning.
A classic PS1 game from the late 90s brought back to life to see if it can win our hearts, in a way just like the hero of the story, kind of ironic.
I will start by saying I really enjoyed Just Cause 3, I freed all the towns, destroyed all the bases, destroyed everything I could. In fact I was destroying so much I almost never actually finished the game. So I was looking forward to Just Cause 4 for those reasons. Sadly I did not have the chaotic fun with 4 that I did with 3.
