  1. Yeah, they're going to be released in the US. Kiwami 2 came out last year.
  2. I did as well. Based on what I played of it I found it to be a little overrated, but I liked it enough to give it another chance in the future. I also have Dishonored 2, but I haven't played it yet.
  3. I usually prefer female protagonists in video games as well because a lot of the time I find them to be less douche-y than male protagonists, but the ones in Wolfenstein: Youngblood seem like typical male video game protagonists just with female skins. That trailer has turned me off from the game since every non-gameplay moment was cringe-worthy, and I couldn't endure that throughout the entire length of the game despite it probably having fun gameplay. I personally like Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Wolfenstein (2009) more than the current gen Wolfenstein games. Have you played them? The current gen ones are good, but I don't like them quite as much as others do.
  4. Syndicate is a blast. Jacob and Evie are a couple of my favorite video game protagonists, and need their own spinoff game series as far as I'm concerned. I especially like Evie, she's a freakin' ninja that's lethal with a cane-sword. The grappling hook adds a lot to the experience as well. I think that it's one of the best games in the AC series, and is underrated IMO.
  5. I'm playing Assassin's Creed: Origins now, and I'm curious to hear what you think of the earlier AC games since Origins is quite a big departure from them. Other than for their settings and time periods, they're all basically the same game. Origins is more akin to something like Horizon Zero Dawn, a big sprawling open world action adventure game with RPG elements. It includes a lot of mechanics and staples from the previous AC games, but improves upon everything quite substantially especially the combat. The previous games (except for Syndicate) focused primarily on stealth, and had fairly basic combat systems for that reason. Syndicate changed that, and Origins takes it even further with brutal and visceral combat with lots of weapons and skills to unlock. As much as I like the previous AC games, Origins is shaping up to be the best that I've played in the series because everything about it is bigger and better IMO.
  6. The following is how I rank the Assassin's Creed games that I've played: 1. Assassin's Creed II 2. Brotherhood 3. Syndicate 4. Black Flag 5. Assassin's Creed III 6. Unity 7. Revelations 8. Assassin's Creed I haven't played Origins or Odyssey yet, but I plan to this year.
  7. Uncharted 4 and The Lost Legacy are less spectacle-first games like the original trilogy, but of course still include those elements so if you didn't like the first three games then you probably won't like the latest ones either. As for The Last of Us, if it doesn't sound like your thing then you probably shouldn't play it. Not every game is for everyone.
  8. Have you played Uncharted 4? I feel that its gameplay is better than the previous games. It's the best game in the series IMO. As for The Last of Us, it's admittedly a more narrative driven experience than a gameplay driven one, but the gameplay is still solid IMO. While it doesn't reinvent the wheel in terms of shooting and stealth mechanics, its overall gameplay is still more than just serviceable enough to push the story along.
  9. @Bloodporne It's nice to see someone else who appreciates this game as much as I do, and for all the same reasons. It's a great first person horror survival game with unique aspects, and it's a shame that it's so overlooked and underappreciated. I bought a European physical copy (it's digital only in the US) for $19.99, and I would have easily paid more for it. It's one of my favorite games this gen.
  10. The Last of Us is a completely different game than the Uncharted games. It's an M rated horror survival game that's extremely dark in tone, and pushes the envelope in terms of video game content. While the core game itself doesn't really standout from a gameplay perspective as it's mostly cover shooting and stealth, the mechanics are solid and do allow for some strategy at times. As an overall gaming experience, it's one of the best that I've played. The story, characters and things that happen throughout aren't usual video game fare. Anyone who likes horror should play it IMO.
  11. This. I'm drawn to darker toned everything... art, music, movies, etc. The Sands of Time was a more charming game with a better story, but Warrior Within is a really good action platformer with excellent level design. I really liked The Two Thrones too.
  12. If they're not shutting down, then why is The Walking Dead: The Final Season being cancelled? I would think that it would be the one game that they would finish considering that there's already two episodes, and it's their biggest franchise. I of course don't want to see them shut down since I like a lot of their games, but if nothing else they should at least finish the final season of The Walking Dead.
  13. Yeah, it's been a while. Been dealing with life stuff, but been trying to do more gaming since I have hundreds of games and I keep buying more.
  14. I only play single player games, and only focus on one at a time until it's finished and then move onto something else.
