Keep reading to find out!
Marissa – Pokémon X
I’ve loved Nintendo and Pokémon pretty much my whole life. I grew up playing Smash, Mario Kart…failing at Legend of Zelda. But what always kept me true to my Gameboys and mobile Nintendo systems was Pokémon. Catching and training your favorites. Whether it was the first generation or the latest and greatest.
However, as adulthood crept in and everyone in your life looks at you funny when you pump your fist and quietly whisper “gotcha” I started to think that maybe it was time to let childhood me go. Pokémon’s for kids. You can’t worry about what your Eevee will evolve into. Or which of three starters you’re about to pick. You have to pick a career path and a car and…a husband.
But, I very recently said, nah. Bought myself a 3DS, and Pokémon X was my first game. Pokémon X is the first game in a long time that I have really enjoyed in the franchise. The bonds you are able to build with your Pokémon through training and games. The customization so you can feel like your trainer represents you. And the fact that Sycamore is like, so having one starter is cool right, but, what if you could have two? Plus people giving Lucario and Lapras away for free, I mean COME ON! I’ve messed around with Alpha Sapphire, and it’s alright. Pokémon X let me fall in love again. And is honestly making me reconsider picking up Moon. I was a hard no on it, I have student debt, I can’t buy ANOTHER Pokémon game. Psh. Yeah I can. I’m an adult.
What is up gamers, Daniel here to tell you WTF I’ve been playing this week.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered campaign released this Wednesday for any PS4 gamers that preordered Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition. And yes, I did have the pleasure of being one of those individuals.
I have to admit this will be my first time playing through the first Modern Warfare. I first got into Call of Duty with the very first Black Ops and went from there.
From the very first time I was able to control my player, Soap, I could feel the huge difference in gameplay between Black Ops 3 and Modern Warfare. And to be frank, I kind of like it. I loved Black Ops 3 and its fast paced gameplay, but there is something very sweet about Modern Warfare and its simplicity. I’ve only played the first few missions but they have been a blast. I ran the cargo training course in under 19 seconds so I could secure the trophy and set my difficulty to Veteran because I love a challenge.
Everything from the way the guns feel, the strategy involved in how you approach an enemy, and the setting is extremely nostalgic and a welcome change of pace for the Call of Duty franchise.
Roger – Fallout: New Vegas
Going back into Fallout: New Vegas, I’ve never been more excited. Coming out of Fallout 3, New Vegas hits every wish on my list that I wanted from its Bethesda counterpart. From aiming down the sights to having mods on weapons. I’ve decided to side with the NCR for my current play-through. It seemed to always be my favorite because I loved the military style character with an emphasis in guns while having one of the best looking outfits in the game.
I recently passed Nipton destroying every sign of The Legion I came across, and headed to Novac where I ended up recruiting Boone, a former NCR sniper. A true patriot like my character, I thought it’d seem fitting to have him close. The Mojave really sets the old western feel to it and being a huge Quentin Taratino fan, I love being in this world. One of the biggest things that I really took for granted was having a silent protagonist. In New Vegas, I tend to read but also voice act my own character every time dialogue appears. Even though my voice acting skills are mediocre, I go toward the light; The lights of New Vegas.
