I have been a fan of the franchise ever since the release of Kingdom Hearts. I went through a very difficult time in my life when that game came out and it was my escape mechanism. When I got my hands on Kingdom Hearts II, I was amazed and it remains one of my favorite video games to the day. Keeping in mind that I haven’t played all of the spin-off games (which are actually relevant to the story, but we’ll cover that in a bit), I knew that going into KH3 I would need some sort of refresher. Two hours worth of lore videos later, I was ready to boot up that disc.
When Far Cry New Dawn was announced at The Game Awards, I was very intrigued to go back to Hope County about 20 years after the end of Far Cry 5. This was a chance for them to provide closure to an otherwise flat ending, as well as provide fans of the series more reason to enjoy the open-world action that Far Cry is known for. What New Dawn turns out to be, is one of the best installments in the entire franchise.
There has been a lot of cautious optimism when it comes to the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Days Gone. What was once touted as one of Sony’s big upcoming games, seems to have become a cause for concern with the minimal marketing we’ve seen and the delayed release from February to April.
I dislike the battle royale genre. I loved Titanfall 2. So when these two worlds collided, I was overcome with a both cautious and bubbling enthusiasm. After many hours of playing Apex Legends both solo and in a squad of friends, I'm excited to report that my cautious and bubbling enthusiasm has not subsided.
