Christmas is quickly closing in on us. When we aren’t shopping we’re trying to fit in as many gaming hours as we can. The Christmas break will see quite a few of us playing some of the newest titles out, but before that we’re getting through a few things left on our list to finish. Backlog gaming is always fun, right?
Jerel – World of Final Fantasy
So… I was admittedly supposed to have this game finished by now. I honestly didn’t know it was as long as it is. That’s a great thing depending, seeing as I’ve heard both negative aspects of the game being too long, as well as positive aspects of getting what your money is worth. For what my opinion is worth, I am IN LOVE with this title so far. The best part is encountering all of the classic Final Fantasy characters and discovering how they interact in this new world. I have admittedly spent far too much time playing with stacks and farming different mirages for my team, trying to maximize my spells as well as make sure my stacks are as adorable as possible. I’m hoping to finish it soon, then you can read a joint review from myself and some friends here at the site. Have you guys played? What are your stacks looking like?
Marissa – Fallout 4
Hey everyone, it’s Marissa playing something other than Smite! Who thought that was possible?
During this past week, I’ve decided to dive back into the world of Fallout 4. Why? Certainly not for mods…no seriously, I just wanted to play through it again, mod-free. Though that’s a thing now on every platform, so you can check that out if it’s your cup of tea.
I can’t really explain why, but all the sudden I was craving some sweet RPG action, and Fallout 4 was my game of choice. Between the interesting story, crazy side quests, and loving almost every character you can buddy up with (gives Preston a disgusted glare…) it just felt right to jump back in. And OMG how did I not know about Curie?!?! She is only the most adorable thing in the world??? Like Valentine was bae but now it’s Curie????? I must have never went back to Vault 81.
And now that all of the DLC for the game has been released, (I played through the first time before any of the additional goodies were available) I have some weird stuff to look forward to, like recreating my Fallout Shelter vault in-game. I haven’t yet because I’m trying to find Curie a fleshy, pink brain, but we’ll get there. For science, of course. Not love or anything…Unless she falls in love with female characters then, ABSOLUTELY FOR LOVE!
Daniel – Titanfall 2
WTF is up guys! This week I’ve submerged myself in my Titan and battled for survival in what is in my opinion this holiday’s best first person shooter, Titanfall 2.
I’ve been mostly playing pure multiplayer with my group of friends. Calling out to each other while we’re in our titans asking for a battery pack, or gaining up on an enemy titan as pilots! It is an amazing experience and something I haven’t felt in a shooter in a while. The last time I remember having this much fun with a multiplayer shooter was back in Black Ops 1 when I had a full squad of people. The conversations and moments you have while playing can truly be a beautiful experience.
Titanfall 2 puts you in the seat of a pilot. Someone trained and assigned to battle in the war alongside their titans. This time around your titan is YOUR TITAN. The customization options and the many titan classes you can choose from help shape the perfect titan for you so that it feels like it was made specifically for you. So that when you get out into the battle, it feels like your titan is a companion and not just some worthless AI character.
Overall it has been a lot of fun playing Titanfall 2, and I look forward to all the free DLC updates. That’s right FREE. Any map or dlc items will be available for free, besides a few cosmetic items. Respawn has truly bestowed upon us a gift, and I couldn’t be more grateful.
And there you have it, we’ll be enjoying ourselves this weekend. What are you all playing this weekend? Gearing up for those Holiday games you’re going to recieve? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter and Facebook @WTFGamersOnly.
