First Impressions | Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory Demo

Publisher/Developer: Square Enix

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Ever since the first Kingdom Hearts game, I have always been a big fan. The mash up of Square Enix and Disney characters is such a unique concept that always kept me intrigued. Despite the number of spinoffs and the convoluted story, my fandom stayed mostly intact. Coming off of Kingdom Hearts 3, which was fun, but could have been better, I was wondering where Square would take the KH universe next. Fast forward to the year 2020 and the answer is a new rhythm game.

NOT Your Game of the Year List – 2019

Welcome to my NOT Your Game of the Year List! Unlike your usual “Game of the Year List,” everything is made up and the points don’t matter, this list does not feature your typical gaming categories. The winners may not have actually released in the year mentioned either. Kudos to my homie Charles aka Profex for coming up with this idea. Without further ado, I present to you my 2019 NOT Your Game of the Year list.

I WISH MORE OF YOU PLAYED THIS – GAME OF THE YEAR |

CONTROL

Control came out to solid reviews, but a lot of people did not pay it much attention… including myself. I honestly did not pick this up until December of last year, immediately following The Game Awards, and I’m glad I did. The story is interesting, the atmosphere is eerie and the art direction is captivating. This is a supernatural adventure that is worth experiencing.

Street Fighter V’s Next DLC Character is Kolin

thegeekdojo.net

Kolin is otherwise known as Gill’s personal assistant from Street Fighter 3. She has ice based powers and quite a few combos, similar to Karin. Channeling straight from the Capcom Unity blog:

“After working in the shadows for Gill and the secret Illuminati organization, Kolin makes her Street Fighter V debut. First appearing in Street Fighter III, Kolin works behind the scenes in order to fulfill the Prophecy of Miraha and stop any who dare stand in Gill’s way. She is typically calm and collected, but can suddenly fly into a rage when anybody threatens Gill and his plans. Spoiler-alert, she resurrects Nash and uses him as a pawn too, showing she will do anything to achieve her goals.”

Kolin will be available February 28th. Check out her reveal trailer below featuring a new song from hip-hop artist Lupe Fiasco.

Check out the Capcom Unity blog for all the extra details, such as fighting style, v-trigger, v-skill, and costumes for Kolin.

If you missed out on the For Honor closed beta last weekend, you will still have a chance to try out Ubisoft’s brutal, melee combat fighter before is releases on the 14th.

The open beta will start on February 9th and end on February 12th. You will be able to play on XB1, PS4, and PC. The beta will have the same modes as the closed beta, Duel, Brawl, and Dominion, but you will also be able to try the new Elimination mode- a best of five series of four on four matches with no respawns. War of Factions will also be continued throughout the beta.

thegeekdojo.net

2015’s Star Wars Battlefront left a lot to be desired. It’s not necessarily a bad game, but it does not live up to what Battlefront used to be. EA and DICE realize that and will fix that in the upcoming sequel.

EA’s CEO Andrew Wilson, stated in a recent earnings call that the next Battlefront game will be released this holiday season. It will feature a new single player campaign mode as well.

“There will be new ways to play, including an all-new single-player campaign, and much, much more that we are excited to share with our player in the months ahead,” Wilson stated.

Wilson also mentioned that the game will be bigger, have more locations, and more characters that span across multiple Star Wars stories. It’s safe to say Rogue One and The Force Awakens will for sure be included in this one. Check out the statement to shareholders to see for yourself.

What do you want to see most in the next Star Wars Battlefront game?
