There's not a great deal that has happened, game relevant, in the last week for me. I consider it the calm before the digital storm. With Horizon: Zero Dawn coming out soon and previewing with glowing scores, next week is going to be a busy one. I do wish to try out Halo Wars 2, it sounds like the campaign is quite enjoyable. I will be skipping the initial launch of the Switch, as I have said before, so that at least gives me a bit of extra time to play Horizon, Halo Wars 2, and possibly Tides of Numenera. Nier is out on the 7th which looks damn good and then my most anticipated title: Mass Effect Andromeda.
I have tempered expectations for ME Andromeda. Although it is a new game in my favorite game universe and follows my favorite set of games of all time, I am a little wary because it was the story telling and characters that made me fall in love with the original ME trilogy. So, I certainly hope they will bring compelling characters to a wonderful story but until I see it happen, I will not get ridiculously hyped on it. I adore the idea of exploration in the game, as what little we did have in the first game really stood out to me despite the rather boring things on each planet's surface (game objectives) and rather wonky Mako controls, I am afraid that they will try to play too much into that aspect and will fly a little too close to No Man's Sky: lots of exploration that is as deep as a puddle. We shall see.
I think I will have much more to say quite soon. On a last note, I am curious if I am missing any ow flying gems because my attention is , rightfully, diverted to the cornucopia of wonders coming our way very soon. I should check Amazon and see if there's anything I should possibly get. I've always enjoyed buying 15 buck games that have been out for a little while but haven't gotten the attention many other games have. Vanquish, Singularity, Fuse, Binary Domain, etc. are all games I have found this way.
Until next time...
