My quest to complete 50 games in 2017 4/50
Starting out this year and looking at my ever growing game collection and seeing the numerous franchises I have yet to beat or even play I made it a goal to complete at least 50 games this year. I thought it'd be a good idea to not only attempt to continue writing but to chronicle my thoughts on each game throughout the year to do a quick piece on each one every now and then. Now I'm just counting story here so main story done no 1000/1000G or anything like that unless the game really grabs me and I want to continue on with it.

Final Fantasy XV 100%
FFXV is a great game for fans of old and new gamers checking the series out for the first time. It takes away the turn based combat of old that let you plan your next move beforehand and replaces it with a open real-time combat system in the fashion of games like Kingdom Hearts, or Bayonetta. Throwing you into control of Noctis and his 3 friends as they travel to a wedding to bind 2 separate kingdoms together. The story that unfolds is enough to keep even a casual player interested while having enough side quest fill-in for people who really want to put as much time into the world as they can.

The Cave 100%
Very rarely do I really stick with Games with Gold Titles that I've never had interest in beforehand but going into The Cave something about its humor and charm had me hooked for quite awhile. The Cave is a 2D side-scrolling puzzle game that has you literally going deeper into a cave that is somehow filled with a nuclear silo, an Egyptian Pyramid and somehow a deserted island, each offering different style puzzles depending on your character choice. Picking 3 of 7 different "heroes" for each play-through each equipped with a special ability that opens up specific story paths or alternate ways to get through puzzles offers at least a couple playthroughs just to see each characters special story.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 100%
Now for some of you reading this you may be like "Hey why has he not finished an 11 year old game at this point?" Honestly I don't have an answer. I didn't even realize I never got around to beating this game until I was looking back at old achievements and noticed the main story was not complete. Not much really needs to be said about Oblivion it was an absolute hit and many people have already put 100's of countless hours into it. I still enjoyed jumping back into my old save file after all this time exploring the world for the last bit I had left. Oblivion was easily one of my favorite 360 games and still sits above Skyrim for me, if you have yet to pick it up it is definitely worth your time especially since it is now backwards compatible on Xbox One

Dead Rising 2
Dead Rising 2 was another 360 game I managed to skip and decided to beat it after playing through the remake of the first game a little bit ago. Dead Rising 2 offers more of the same that was in the first game all while not really adding anything new into it. The core of Dead Rising returns with a strange cast of civilians,the series staple psychopaths alike, and more crazy weapons than I knew what to do with. If you were interested in picking up DR4 I'd almost recommend to go back and play through 1-3 again just to see how the series has evolved and where its gotten to throughout the years.

My thoughts on the future of Microsoft/Xbox
With the recent cancellation of Scalebound this morning that everyone and their mother seems to have an opinion on I thought I would chime in on where I think Microsoft is going in the future with Scorpio on the horizon. With the future of Xbox seemingly up in the air where we are still waiting for games that were announced 3 E3's ago or looking back on the games that have been cancelled since then such as Fable Legends, Scalebound, and Below being in indefinite hiatus do we continue to view Microsoft as a video game publisher or are they switching to almost a Steam type route where they just have hardware for other companies to use for game releases. If we take a moment to view what games and studios that Microsoft actually has there really isn't that much to look forward to at this point. We know we are going to continue to get our Gears of War, and our Halo games (even with the sales of both most recent games being significantly lower than previous iterations), and probably the best racing game you can buy anymore in the Forza series being the only 3 for sure series Xbox has under it's belt anymore. Let's look back on the recent games in Microsoft's wake of cancelation.

Crackdown 3 was announced back in 2014 and since that time has seemingly had nothing else announced or released other than PR's typical " It's still in development" speech every now and then. Now with one last push to persuade consumers that it is in fact still coming out at the end of this year (maybe as a game for Scorpio to show off power).

Phantom Dust and Below were also both released at the 2014 E3 showcase and with Phantom Dust going ghost and eventually announced as canceled a while after with no news on it since of maybe making a comeback. Below was on a set path for a good release before it was pushed under the rug with no more coming out of it until the game is "good and ready to go" who knows if it will ever see the light of day.

And last but not least we have Project Spark a game that was based around creation tools for people to create their own games and worlds, being able to share them worldwide. Project Spark actually did come out but after a year and a half had the entire service cancelled and servers shut down it was a game that released and was gone without another word.

With Cuphead also being announced in 2014 and nowhere to be seen, and this years E3 being just a few short months away what can Microsoft actually announce and promise to keep the fan-base in high regards. Does Microsoft have some first part games in development that will see release and hopefully grab the audience back into the ecosystem? Or is the Scorpio releasing later this year be a transition into a streaming box with little to no first part support anymore?
Hopefully they come out swinging because if they want to continue to gain ground on the competition they need to have some sort of hype machine built up around them to breath life into the Xbox community again. Keep the conversation going below with your thoughts on the future of us and until then keep enjoying the worlds and stories you love and appreciate games for what they are...
