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.
FRACTER, originally releasing on mobile platforms in 2018, makes it’s way to the Nintendo Switch, this week. This unique puzzle game has you follow a young hero who is determined to fight back against darkness, with light. Thanks to the dope folks over at The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild, I was able to get an early look.
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 – GAMEOF THE YEAR|
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.
E3 2018 has officially come to a close. It smacked us right in the face with plenty of new game announcements, game previews, some solid press conferences, and some not so solid press conferences. *cough cough* Square Enix *cough cough* Now begins the hard part of waiting for these new games to actually release to the public! Here are 10 that I am impatiently waiting for the most:
This new trailer features the newly announced Android16, Android 18, Krillin, Piccolo, and Future Trunks. Dragon Ball FighterZ beta sign ups are also live. You can sign up here! check out the trailer below.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be available on XB1, PS4, and PC February 2018.
WWO’s producer, Stephan Bugaj, recently uploaded a video showing off just how the game will work. The in-game video features some of the game’s locations, how the bounty system works, as well as the combat mechanics.
The game itself looks great. It will be interesting to see how this game will stack up against Red Dead: Redemtion 2’s inevitable multiplayer. Either way, Wild West Online looks incredibly ambitions and I will be checking it out for sure. Check out the gameplay video below.
You can reserve a spot for the upcoming alpha play test at playwwo.com.
Rocket League and Hot Wheels have teamed up to bring 2 of the most iconic cars to the game: Bone Shaker and Twin Mill. Cars will be sold separably and will include exclusive decals with your purchase. Check out the trailer below.
The Hot Wheels DLC will be available on February 21st.
Samurai will be the second new chracter class of the Stormblood expansion. The first was the Red Mage. The new Samurai class will be dps based, unlike FFXI tank based samurai. There will be no base class and will start at level 50. Check out the trailer below to get a good look at the new samurai class along with the new continent, Othard.
Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will be released on June 30th for PC and PS4.
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.
E3 is coming! Every gamer’s biggest dream is to go to E3 at some point in their lives. You can fulfill that dream this year. The media only event will be opening its doors to us mere muggles this year, but there is a catch. There will be a limited amount of tickets available to the public. Only about 15,000 consumer passes so you will have to act fast when they go on sale.
The E3 consumer passes will go on sale this Monday, February 13th at 12PM ET. Tickets will originally go on sale at a price of $150, but will jump up to $250 after the 13th. E3 is held at the Los Angeles Convention center every June. You can find more info on E3 at the website right here.
