My Top 5 Video Games of 2016

Another year down, more video games to countdown. There was plenty to play in the year of 2016, but unfortunately I cannot play them all. Here are 5 of my most definite favorites though. Lets start with some honorable mentions:

Street Fighter V: Street Fighter V just missed the cut because it got off to a rough start. It got pushed out to the public a bit early and ultimately was an unfinished product. Capcom has been working hard to fix some of the issues with it and its now shaping up to be a pretty great game. The future of Street Fighter V is looking bright.

Dark Souls 3: I’ve never been that big of a fan of this series, but I was able to have quite a bit of fun with DS3. It wont make me like the Souls games over Bloodborne though. Still hoping a sequel will be made.

And the FINAL honorable mention goes to Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is a fantastic game, but it left more to be desired from me. We do know that Square-Enix has future DLC plans for the game, which is exciting.

Now for the Top 5: Continue reading

Even though Yoshinori Ono tried to steer us away from thinking Akuma was going to be playable in SFV, to nobody’s surprise Akuma will be playable in SFV. A reveal trailer was shown off at PlayStation Experience, this past weekend.

Akuma, and his lion mane, will be available on the 20th of this month. He will be the first season 2 dlc chracter.

Person 5 may have gotten delayed for the 1000th time for western audiences, but Atlus has come through with a new English trailer to help ease the pain. It doesn’t get rid of all the pain, but I will be able to sleep a little better at night knowing that it does still exist. Japan says its really good. Check out the trailer below.

Hopefully it wont get delayed again, but look for Persona 5 to hit stores sometime in April of 2017.

What are Ya Playin’ This Weekend?

thegeekdojo.net

Happy first weekend of Summer, and it is a hot one! I hope you are able to get plenty of gaming in this weekend.

I will be playing some competitive Overwatch. The mode recently launched in Public Test Realm. I played a few games earlier and lost all 3. Hopefully I can win the last 7. Trails of Cold Steel will also be played and Tokyo Mirage Sessions just arrived in my mailbox today. I will probably play the first hour or so just to see how it is.

If you’re into fighting game tournaments, the big CEO tournament is happening in Orlando this weekend and it should be pretty good. Games like Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros, MKX, Guilty Gear, and many more will all be featured.

That’s enough about  me, what about you? What are you playing this weekend?
