Eco Game Review: Sandbox Gameplay with a Mission

There are few games that allow the player to create anything they want in an open world. Yes, you know where we are pointing towards. We are talking about Minecraft. It is simple, super imaginative and creative as well as one of the popular games from Sandbox that gives the player whole control of the world and what he or she could create in it. You get all kinds of options from the game itself that helps you build rooms, buildings, furniture, nature and what not. You can move around the world and have unlimited supplies to build things from scratch.

If you love Minecraft as much as we do, there is a good news for you. Strange LoopGames have released a new game called “Eco” that gives you everything you want from a survival and create game and even a bit more than that. Eco is a game which has an end and objective to accomplish. Adding objective to open world creative gameplay is something that we never saw before and which is why Eco is way different when compared to other titles of the Indie genre.

So, here we are with a brief review of the game that will give you a deep insight of what happens in the game and why we liked it.

Story and Gameplay

The game starts with few tutorials which we recommend you to go through. These tutorials will teach you various survival techniques which are essential for progress in the game. Also, the tutorial will help you get some tools using which you can start mining, collecting stones, cutting trees, just like starting a whole new civilization from scratch.

Now after you are done getting used to the environment, the first problem is thrown at you. This new problem is a meteor which is circling the planet and you have just 30 days before it hits your planet and ends everything. So, you now have 30 real days to build your civilization expand it to such a level that they are capable of handling the circling doom.

You also have stats that grow as you build more and more things and progress on. These stats are going to help you to build better things taking you closer to getting rid of the meteor. Once you have a good skill set, you will be able to build a whole city with some dedicated efforts.

Till now, the game looks really exciting, but things become even more fun if you have a group of friends with you as well. Eco allows you and your friends to play together, work together, and work wonders combining your imagination and creativity together. Another great thing about the game is that it allows the player to enforce kind of law in the community, and each and every player in the community gets to vote whether they wish to enforce the law or not. This feature gives the control of the game to every player equally and makes sure they feel their importance, giving Eco a whole new feel.

The list of surprises does not end here. There is another additional touch that is really amazing in the game. Whatever you and your friends do in the game, affects the environment as well as the ecosystem around you. It’s totally upon your whether you wish to destroy the nature to save yourself from the danger or maintain balance with it. This element could be found in very little things. For example, if you are taking too much food from a plant, ultimately it will die. Things become even more unstable once you have installed various factories around that continuously pump out smoke degrading the environment. One thing to notice is that the more you degrade the environment, more it becomes harder to maintain. The challenge is really very tough, which is to maintain a fully flourishing civilization with nature and at the same time, avoiding its extinction as well.

Game Visuals

The game visuals are a bit better than the Minecraft game but they are not as realistic as you see in the latest heavy game titles. Eco has a cartoon type design with perfect polishing imparting natural look to the things around you. The meteor itself is very dreadful and threatening from the first sight. It reminds you if the danger as it closes day by day.

Sound plays an important role in the game. The background music is very soothing and offers you a perfect surrounding to focus on building your civilization. Different actions that you do make sound as well, but is matches and fades into the music running in the background. The perfect blend of visuals and music makes you believe that you are actually building your personal new world.

Online Play

The players have a lot of option to join various servers that are hosted online. Obviously, you can continue building your own world alone but you also have the option to include other online players as well. With so many options, laws, building, you get too many possibilities you can create, and that is something that makes the game replayable over time again and again.

Eco – The Verdict

Well, we really liked the game but there could have been few improvements to that. The start of the game might seem a bit slow for to some of the players as you will have to discover few basic things like wheel barrels so that they can help you out to move things a bit faster. Also, you cant farm from the start and will have to forage food from the surroundings. Well, the developers could have made the beginning a bit easier and pacer for us, but that does not take away the charm of the game.

All in all, Eco is a very interesting game that takes the sandbox gameplay style and adds a lot of creative possibilities in it by adding few concepts and elements in it. We really liked it and played it few more times to discover what all we can do in it, and the list is really huge. Once you are done with the initial setup requirements, things will get pretty easier for you. It is a good competitor to Minecraft while taking its capabilities to a whole new level. This game is made for all the Minecraft and adventure lovers out there and definitely needs a shot.

Dragon Ball FighterZ PlayStation 4 Review

We recently unveiled a list of the most anticipated and awaited games of 2018. One of the games on the list was Dragon Ball FighterZ, which has been recently launched in the market. There have been very few games related to Dragon Ball Z anime series before, but not all of them were so impressive as Dragon Ball FighterZ. One of the biggest problems has always been related to the Dragon Ball game visuals. It is very hard to imitate and get the exact features, styles, moves as in cartoon as in the game. But things are a lot different in the new Dragon Ball fighting game which has been developed by none other than Arc System. In case you don’t know about them, Arc Systems is really very popular for developing stylish and detailed fighting game titles, and their involvement in the development of the new DBZ fighting game made us even more eager to try it out.

So, let us not wait any more time and begin the review of this exciting fighting game. For those who have been waiting for the game since long, we would like to tell you that it is really worth it. Dragon Ball FighterZ is a game that should have a lot of action, and it does not fail to impress you in that. It was very important for the developers to bring out the action as well as the intensity of the fights of Dragon Ball Z, and Arc System Works has done an incredible for here. For the fans of the original series, the characters and cartoons look like they have directly pulled out of the comics and TV screen and put in the game. Almost every move you make in the game fills the entire screen with spectacular destructive graphics, no matter it is a single button attack or the Ult to end the battle dramatically and in style.

The visuals you see on the screen are not repetitive or similar and have some high as well as low points, but that is an important part of the game’s gameplay to make sure that it is equally hard for both beginners as well as pros.

Gameplay

I personally loved the 3 vs 3 mode in the game which reminded me of the original street fighter video game that we used to play as a child. However, this time this was handled in a much better way than before. But the concept remains the same, both the trios need to fight against each other until and unless one of them is completely defeated. When the player is defeated, you see an animation before the new player is replaced with the defeated player, giving the players time to adjust for the new fight. Obviously, we know how intense a battle could get when players are really pumped up, the small break in between helps in player calm down mentally to get ready for the next battle.

There is a unique feature in the game for all the newcomer that will help them to get aboard and get accustomed to the moves. This feature is a “Shared command list”. Shared command list makes sure that every fighter you play with has the same move set as the previous one. So, you won’t have to learn the unique mechanics of the game before you can actually progress in it. Just learn the movement and actions of one single character and all those skills set as well as skills are copied to the rest of the cast as well.

This gives the benefit of not memorizing every move in the game for different characters. You don’t need to learn any new command for every new character that you play with. All the players need to do it, explore a little about the moves of the player, assign them to the pre-defined move set and you are good to go. For an instance, you can use the Ki attack from Goku by pressing a button. The same button could be used for Vegeta to use his fire ball or Captain Ginyu to summon allies in the fight. So, all you need to memorize is which attack to use at what point, making the gameplay a lot simpler and competitive for newbies and experts. This was a big problem in all the other fighting games where the player had to pause and look at the command list to know what all powers he or she can use. And it was of no use a well, as we only used the move that are easy to perform and remember. That extra effort is no longer required in Dragon Ball FighterZ. In addition to that, you won’t have to remember all the new moves while switching the players during a battle. All you need to know is what powers the new player possesses.

Since the Dragon Ball FighterZ game is a 3 vs 3 game, the players have to pick 3 characters in order to form a team and fight the battle against the other team, which too contains three members. You can easily switch between different characters in between the fight, and even if you do not use it, you control will automatically switch to the next character once you exiting fighter is defeated by the opponent.

Story Mode

There is a story mode in the game as well which helps you to explore various characters in the game as well as the game mechanics in a whole different environment. The entire story mode is divided into three different parts in which you get the chance to play as various characters of the Dragon Ball world. But we found a huge non-linear storyline which was full of action and adventure, but not very impressive. In the starting of the Story mode, we see Goku as well as his friends being knocked out at once. You are a character somehow related to Goku as well. After that, you need to travel the entire universe reviving all your knocked out friends and then assisting them to fight the evil. As a surprise, you have evil clones of yourselves in the game too. In the story mode, the players get chance to get into the shoes of different characters and explore their limits.

You will also find a map in the Story mode with different routes on it. Each and every route is going to take you to a different fight which is somehow related to the story. The player also has the ability to choose the number of fights he or she wished to fight. But not all of them are optional, you will have to fight some important fights forcibly which are important to take the plot of the story forward.

You get experience points as well as power-ups as rewards from the story mode. These power-ups could be used in a single player battle outside Story mode too. You can even converse with various characters that are around you while you are traveling in time. This makes the game more fun and interesting to see what you can find out from various beings. This also prevents the game from being just a fighting game in which the Story mode also asks you to fight, something like Injustice – Gods Among Us.

Dragon Ball FighterZ’s arcade mode is really impressive. There are three difficulty levels that you need to choose from and in each one of them, you face some of the game’s rosters. The initial phase of Arcade mode is easy but it becomes really challenging and devastating in the latter half. The difficulty increases as you perform. The better you perform, more difficult it will get, simple as that. But, it is a great place where you can practice your moves and skill against the computer who can give you a really good fight.

Online Play

You also have the option to take your special moves online and show it to other players from all over the world. However, unlike all the other games, Dragon Ball FighterZ uses a non-traditional menu system in the game. Once you start online, you start in a lobby along with 63 other players coming from a specific geographical area. But you might face some issues while connecting to the servers some of the time.

One big problem with the game is its slow start-up. By default, the game looks for internet access for online play when you start it. And when it does not receive a response back, it turns really slow. It seems it tries again and again for many times before offering the player option to play the game offline. You also cant pick to boot the game in offline mode by default.

However, once you enter the lobby, you control a small copy of your favorite Dragon Ball character that you are playing the game. Also, you get all the access to various parts of the game as well. There are different modes in the online mode too which help you to get the perfect opponent to fight to. The Casual Play and the Ranked play are the most common and simple way to fight other online players. Other modes also help you to get online opponents in which you need to pick your team which you want to use in the fight while the matchmaking system looks for a competitor.

The Verdict

All in all, Dragon Ball FighterZ is a whole new world of fighting in itself. It will make you feel powerful, pumped and unstoppable, especially if you are a Dragon Ball anime fan. The game is fully about the face to face epic battles and the moves you pull out to defeat even the toughest of opponents. Obviously, it is one of the best online fighting multiplayer game of 2018, but we can see some more of them coming in in a couple of months too. Stay tuned with us for more updates on the Dragon Ball FighterZ game and other game updates too.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date and Other Things We Know So Far

If you don’t know about the game, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a sequel to the most popular game “Red Dead Redemption” which was initially released in the year 2010. The game has been developed by the Rockstar games, the same people behind Grand Theft Auto game series. Today in this post we are going to cover everything that we know about the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 game, its trailers, gameplay, rumors and release date.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 game initially came into the picture during 2016 when it was first revealed by Rockstar Games. There was just an image that was published on the Twitter account of the developer which started all the speculation about the game.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date

It was October 20th, 2016 when we first got the glimpse of the game. It was all the Wild West and the atmosphere resembling the original atmosphere detailed enough to pump you up for an adventure. The first trailer gameplay was played on a PlayStation 4, so it was not clear whether the game would be a PS4 exclusive or would be released for all gaming platforms.

There has been a lot of talks and rumors regarding the release date of Red Dead Redemption 2. However, till now, none of them have proven to be true. The second trailer of Red Dead Redemption 2 was released on September 28, 2017, in which it seemed that the players would take up the role of Arthur Morgan, the outlaw. It was rumored to release in the Spring of 2018 at that time. Soon, there was another rumor coming from Amazon Mexico which listed the game on their product page by giving the release date of 12 July 2018. This gave gamers a hope that they will be exploring the West land on a new adventure this summer. But, this time too, the rumors were invalid.

The latest and the official announcement about the Red Dead Redemption 2 game comes from the Rockstar Games themselves. They have announced that the second part of the series will be released o October 26th, 2018 and it will only be available for Xbox One and PS4 consoles. The official announcement was made on the official website of Rockstar Games where they updated:

“We are excited to announce that Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released on October 26th, 2018. We apologize to everyone disappointed by this delay. While we had hoped to have the game out sooner, we require a little extra time for polish”

There were few screenshots of the game which were really impressive as well as exciting to see.

Rockstar games also added, “We sincerely thank you for your patience and hope that when you get to play the game, you will agree the wait will have been worth it. In the meantime, please check out these screenshots from the game. We look forward to sharing a lot more information with you in the coming weeks.”

Red Dead Redemption 2 Trailer, Story, and Gameplay

Looking at the trailers that have been released by the development company, the main character of the game is going to be Arthur Morgan, who is an outlaw cowboy with not so good relations with the various groups settled across the entire Wild West. These groups look like pursuing him forcing him to escape and with the help of his allies he made on the quests.

The graphics of the game are really very detailed and outstanding. The footage perfectly shows different scenes and environments, with trains and gunfights in it, all matching to the old dry West and how it used to be back then. You might confuse the game with GTA, but it is not. The huge environment and liberty to do almost anything are very common in both the games. But Red Dead Redemption is way more storyline focused and adventure game when compared to Grand Theft Auto.

This new game is actually going to be a prequel to original Red Dead Redemption story wise. Well, this is what is seems from the first and the second trailer and all the old vehicles we got to see in the background. Rockstar has also said that they are going to expand the multiplayer experience in the new Red Dead Redemption 2. So according to them, the huge atmosphere and environment of the game are also providing a well-formed foundation to expand a whole new online multiplayer experience to the players. We have already seen the popularity of such huge world online platforms with Grand Theft Auto 5. All we need to do now is wait and watch that what new elements the developers can add in the online multiplayer mode. Some fans have also speculated that there might be three central characters in the game, John Morrison, Bill Williamson and Dutch van der Linde. All these three characters were also the main characters in the first Red Dead Redemption game.

The main reason given for the delay is that, “This outlaw epic set across the vast and unforgiving American heartland will be the first Rockstar game created from the ground up for the latest generation of console hardware, and some extra time is necessary to ensure that we can deliver the best experience possible for our fans.”

Well, that is all the info that is available for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 game. We are really very excited about its release as you are and we will keep you updated with the new news on the game as soon as it comes out.

PUBG or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is one of the best game that we saw in the starting of the year. And it still retains its position because of the addictive and absolutely random gameplay and concept.

If you didn’t know about that, you can get the PUBG for your Xbox One on the game store online.

However, on comparing the new and modified features in this new update, it is not as big as the first one. It basically refines the console version of the game to make it better by majorly quality-of-life enhancements. There were some crashing issues reported by the players which have been rectified in the new update. One major problem that most of the players faced was with the recoil while firing the weapons, it has been reduced a bit thus offering you better aiming and precision with your shots.

The PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was in the early access phase last week on Xbox One, and with the copies, they have sole till now, we can not doubt its popularity growing exponentially in the Console as well. In the first two days only, more than 1 million players from all over the world played the game. It is so popular among the gamers that Xbox is selling it in a bundle with Xbox One X for a limited amount of time. However, the previous update made a lot of improvements to the performance as well as visuals and other bug fixes.

Also, we saw the official release of the game on 20th of December. The game was in the early access phase since 9 months.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus PlayStation 4 Review

If you have played the first Wolfenstein: The New Order game and loved it, then you are definitely going to love the next installment of the franchise. Everything that made the first game great is also there in the new Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.

This new game has an excellent cast of heroes and the even better cast of villains making the story of the game as well as the gameplay a lot more interesting.

The Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus starts with the father B.J. Blazkowicz, the hero of the game and the story begins when he was a child. He discovers the hatred of his father for other races while he is caught playing with his young female friend who is black. We see that B.J. Blazkowicz father has a different viewpoint who thinks that this would is of the straight white men and they are superior to all the other races on the earth. Not only that, he also believes that they are superior to other races in terms of religion as well as sexual orientation. He tells the young Blazkowicz that,” It’s on us to straighten out the queer,”

The elder Blazkowicz also wants to make the hero strong. He will have to learn it because according to him, being strong is something that is not taught by his Jewish mother. In a scene, B.J. finds himself tied to a beam, and he is directly looking at his dog. Soon he is handed a shotgun and is instructed to kill the dog. He has to learn to be strong somehow. However, we are not going to reveal the suspense here and we recommend you to resolve the scene as well as the game by playing it. But to resolve it, you will have to pull the trigger.

Well, this was just the starting scene and was enough to get us aware of the amount of cruelty that we are going to see in the game. The elder Blazkowicz is really cruel. Not only he is a racist, but also an anti-Semite who married B.J’s mother, a Jewish woman only for her money and her family business. We also see him kicking a dog and then asking B.J. to kill him. But he is not the only cruel evil character in the game. Soon we were introduced to another character who takes the lives of resistance fighters in anger and cold blood. That is not all, after killing the rebel, he has the habit of playing with their heads. This is a game you definitely won’t want your kids to get hands on.

The new game starts after the events of the New Order, and we see the main character in very bad condition. During the battle with the Deathshead, Blazkowicz suffers from bad injuries after an explosion on the battlefield. His insides are failing and the Kreisau Circle is trying very hard to make him survive. B.J. Blazkowicz is some kind of super soldier as well as a legendary fighter who wakes up in the previous game 14 years after Axis powers won the World War II and setting off a nuclear weapon. Almost all of us thought that he would die, but that is not what that happens and we see the story continuing in the second and latest installment.

Blazkowicz is mentally as well as physically devastated in the starting of the game, as we told you above, but the condition does not remain the same for long. Soon into the game, we see him picking up the gun again and fighting against the Nazis. Not only that, the nurse whom he fell in love with in the previous game is now pregnant with twin babies. So, it is a lot more than he needs to fight for in this game. But that only enhances the dive as well as the pressure which is required in a conflict where we see the United States falling in front of the Nazis.

There is a scene in the game where we see the pregnant Anya naked, her belly swollen with a child, and she is covered in blood with a pleasurable feeling and smile on her face. This depicts that there is nothing that could stop her from fighting, not even pregnancy. She is there to do everything she can to help her friends and kill Nazis, and if that requires her to go topless, then be it.

You will find the new Wolfenstein 2 offering you joy, cruelty as well as despair. The game perfectly displays the scenario where the U.S. people have developed a huge amount of hatred towards Nazis under their rule and how they fight back to get rid of them. People in the game are mostly fighting back so that they can enjoy their lives without any oppression. The campaign mode is really intense and hard, but there are many side missions that you can pick up. There are many Blazkowicz allies as well who fight with the hero but also have a different life outside the battle. Many of these people have hobbies like immersing themselves in various psychedelics or playing clarinet etc. We feel that these non-violent scenes were necessary for the game so that the players can get some break from the never-ending cruelty and gun battles.

Unlike the previous Wolfenstein game, the Wolfenstein 2 offers large levels to the players which also contain various different paths to progress forward in the game, solve side missions and achieve rewards on exploring new things and areas. We really found it interesting to roam around the level area and then finding out different ways to surprise the enemy and attacking them in stealth.

There are different kinds of guns that are available to the main hero in the game. One thing that we really liked about it was, Blazkowicz carries the entire arsenal available to him all the time. So, the player has a whole list of weapon options to choose from at any point in time in the game. You can also pick two different guns to hold in two different hands, thus laying havoc on the opponents in the dual-wield mode.

You will find the ammo as well as other weapons and their upgrades scattered around the home base. These items vary at every level and allow the player to use silencers, scopes, extra-large magazines to make your weapons even more deadly. As you will progress in the game, you will be able to enhance the Blazkowicz’sabilities, that in return are going to help you a lot in defeating the stronger and better opponents. Nobody is going to say anything if you burst in firing every last bullet on the enemy with both guns in your hand, or just kill them in quick shady stealth mode without alarming anyone. You have different paths to play all the levels and could even upgrade one set of abilities to take things differently as well.

If you want to be the part of the story as well, there is much narrative decision you will have to make as well in the early game. You can take different decisions that are in reality going to change certain aspects of your campaign story. This will allow the player to enjoy the game more than one time with some differences from the first time play.

We would especially like to mention about the narrative of the game which is so deep and really like that it will make you get into it. Wolfenstein 2 is not easy to play and don’t even try to start in the hard mode. You are going to die a lot of times. Truly saying, we started from hard and then we came down to Normal difficulty level after few missions in the Campaign mode. However, this problem is a bit solved by various options that you will find in the game, one of which is to save the game. The players have checkpoints where the game auto-saves itself. But you also have the option to save the game at any point you want and then resume it from the same spot. This feature is really going to help you in tough battles and also when you would like to play the same mission using a different style. One time you can play a mission in stealth mode and the next time, start from the same spot in death machine mode.

One thing that bugged us in the entire game was the graphics you see when you are hurt or when you are hit by a bullet or any kind of damage. Even when there was small damage to my body, the graphics made it seem like the bullet went through my heart. The intensified graphics even with low damage looked severe. It took time to get accustomed to the pattern and differentiate when you are actually hurt and when its just normal wound.

The Verdict

There is no doubt in the fact that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is a very violent game that doesn’t care about anything to show how actually wars are and how they are fought. It gives you plenty of action as well as plenty of options, and weapons to satisfy the bloodthirsty monster inside you. The game will give you a real feel and you will actually feel good while you are sneaking behind one to cut off his head. And that is what makes Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus even a better game. It brings a perfect balance of hurt and emotion. It balances your hurting emotions, anger and suffering from humanity and anxiety.

All in all, if you are first person game lover who loves to kill a lot and lot of people and unlike other games, want to feel good every time you kill the enemy, Wolfenstein 2 is a must play.

Best Games like Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is an exceptional game developed by Bethesda and which won the game of the year award, British Academy Games Award, and also the best game award at Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

Fallout 4 starts from where Fallout 3 left the world. And the expansion in the new Fallout 4 game is way more than we expected. There are many options to pick, more action, more guns, more depth in personality building and more enemies. If you have not played the Fallout 4 yet and you love RPG gaming, we recommend you to start playing it right now. We assure you that you will spend hundreds of hours into the game but still won’t be able to explore everything in the game.

Fallout 4 starts giving you a look at the world that the gamers left in the last game. The game allows you to select your gender, and make other important decisions so that you can mold your character in any way you want after you wake up in a post-apocalyptic world in the city of Boston.

Literally, the world of Fallout 4 is really very huge. There is a huge wasteland in front of you when you leave the vault. There is a main quest that the players can follow, but in addition to that, there are many side missions as well that you will have to finish as well to increase your skills and develop your character abilities. The best part of the game is that you can take your character and make him or her whatever you want, a loving person, an evil death machine, it’s all your choice.

The game is very long, and you will obviously need some other games as well as you cant keep it playing continuously. And this is the reason why we have listed some of the best games similar to Fallout 4, Have a look at them below:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The best alternative to Fallout 4 is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The Elder Scrolls V is an epic game and a classic RPG game that was released back in the year 2011. It was one of the first game that offered such a huge open fantasy world to the gamers. Elder Scrolls V was developed by Bethesda as well. It is not just any normal game, but the details in the environment are very detailed. The players have an option to chose their character they want to play. You can play as an elf, orc, wood elf, redgaurd etc. Even when you are roaming around the game, you can wind the wild forest around you and could even interact with it.

When you start the game, you are directly taken to a killing block for beheading but it is interrupted by a huge dragon. In the hustle, your character escapes after which you are taught the basics and different features of the game.

After you are done with the tutorial, you are set loose in the huge immersive world to do whatever you want. As you complete different side quests and main story missions, you develop your skills and even attain new abilities for fighting the enemies. The fantasy world also brings dragons and other mystical characters in front of you. And if you are skilled enough, you can even ride a dragon in the game.

There are a lot of similarities between Elder Scroll V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 in the core gameplay. You have a huge world, its just the sword, bows and arrows are replaced with heavy machine guns. If you prefer gameplay over graphics, you should definitely play this classic RPG title.

Far Cry 4

If you like the open world element more than the role-playing, Far Cry 4 is the best game for you. With excellent graphics and super interactive environment, Far Cry 4 is a perfect game to play with nature, wild animals and weapons. However, the plot of Far Cry 4 is not as good as we saw in Far Cry 2 and Far Cry 3. However, the huge number of gameplay options cover up for that depression. In the game, you take up the character of a guy named Ajay Ghale who is a Kyrati-American. He was born in Kyrat and he has returned to his birthplace to pay respect to his mother’s ashes and lay them to rest. There is no such place as Kyrat but the fictional place in the game is situated in the Himalayas. The game begins on a bus which is taking you to Kyrat. However, it is overtaken by some loyalist soldiers. There is a person who takes you in out from the chaos, Pagan Min. he is a psychopath who is also the main villain of the game. We don’t see the developers committing the same mistake again that they did in Far Cry 3, i.e. killing the main and interesting character in the middle of the game.

In the game, the player has to hunt different animals, use stealth and different types of weapons for different missions to survive. But you might find the gameplay a bit repetitive after a point of time. We really hope that they come up with a better gameplay formula in their next title to the franchise. It is important because many other similar games are already close to almost non-repetitive gameplay. But the map of the game saves it from being just another annoying open world RPG game. You have a massive huge map in front of you to explore with different kind of animals and creatures living in it. Also, you have some more tasks apart from side quests. You need to get animal skins as well as craft them with other items to upgrade your inventory as well as some of the inventory items.

All in all, the gameplay is much better than the previous version. You will love running around huge terrain and mountains, killing all the enemies that you find in your path, gunning and bombing enemy bases riding on an elephant. You don’t have to care about the character’s personality and skill development in this game, which might be a relief for many of the gamers who just wish to enjoy a huge world open shooting without much character detail.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Paid features excellent game design coming from Hideo Kojima. Phantom Pain starts from where the previous game Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes ended. After surviving a deadly helicopter crash, Big Boss is into a coma. You listen David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World” in the background building up the tension, fear, and frustration in the gamer’s mind. You will start expecting too much after the starting scene, but the game does not build up to that level.

You take up the role of Big Boss who has a huge responsibility of rebuilding a military force to save the world from a no-faced madman. In the game, you are accompanied by a Soviet cowboy, a sniper, a one-legged drill sergeant and a couple of more soldiers whom you recruit to fight beside you. You are in Afghanistan which is occupied by the Soviet Union in the early eighties.

Apart from the main mission, you have various side quests to complete, a huge list of firearms which can be easily modified and a customizable robotic arm as well. There is a huge improvement in the gameplay as well. In previous games, if you are spotted, your game was over for you, at least for the beginners and occasional gamers. However, in the new Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, you have got a lot of options to get rid of such situations. You can easily call for an airstrike, could take out a rocket launcher, as for an attack chopper on the radio and what not. You have a huge number of choices and we would like to recommend this to players who would like a lot of challenging gunfights and stealth action in their game. It is one of the best game you can play if you like Fallout 4.

The Witcher 3

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a story of betrayal and intrigue. This role-playing game is deep and dense just like the other two installments of the franchise. It packs in a massive open world environment that offers you a lot to learn and is really fun to explore as well. There are a whole day and night as well as a complete weather system that makes the game environment even more live.
Before we enter any other sections of the game, we would like to praise the huge environment it offers to us. It is big enough to make you lost. The minimap helps you to stay on track, but still, this much huge fantasy open world always invites you to discovering new things. It is so big that you would not get bored of it, even after playing the game for hundreds of hours.

The main story of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is strong but not the best part about it. It is the two maps that you have to discover and the things hiding in it. You start the game as the main character Geralt, who is in search of his surrogate daughter Ciri and his lost lover Yennifer. You do not need any info from the previous games to play the latest Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The game gets better when you start exploring things away from the main storyline. There are different Witcher contracts that come from the fortress and muddy hamlets. You can make use of the different Witcher senses to know the whereabouts of different beasts roaming around in the forest and try to learn what you can from there. Small battles and defeating bosses in these small fight gives you experience and attributes to upgrade your skills.

There are dragons, elves, magic and what not, all that set up in the medieval European era. The atmosphere brings different objects like plants and trees to life. The combat mechanism of The Witcher: Wild Hunt is way more streamlined when compared to the previous Witcher games. You have physical swords as well as magic to deal with various kinds of attacks. There are various kinds of enemies, that can kill you or can take a huge portion of your health if you are not careful with them. You also have potions that can help you regain or boost your health and other powers.

All in all, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an amazing game that we would like to recommend to you if you really love RPG and open world game.

Mass Effect 2

If you have played the first Mass Effect game, do not make the mistake to link it to the second Mass Effect game. We have an impressive game from the BioWare developers which features a lot of uncertainty in the game beginning from the first scene of the game.

You will find a lot of things different in Mass Effect 2 when compared to the original Mass Effect. When you start playing the game, you will find that it is mostly a story driven game that is more or less related to the original title despite some major differences. If you wish to know what happened in the previous, there is a comic book feature in the game which tells you everything that happened in the previous game.

It is very hard to put Mass Effect 2 in one particular genre. We could take it as a combination of many genres. It is basically an RPG game which has a lot of open-world sensibilities, action, shooting, adventure, futurism, sci-fi element and what not. However, a lot of emphases is made on the character building rather than building up other things that were not that much liked by gamers in the previous game.

The game is based on a parallel universe where human beings have found an alien race. You also run in into a bunch of new species but the humans have lost the galactic trust as well as the identity in front of a new upcoming threat, in between which, your character makes an entry.

There are a lot of choices to make in the game, each one of which may lead you to a different and real outcome. However, you cant just make all the harsh decisions to become the villain and destroying everything in the choices you make here are going to reflect in the upcoming Mass Effect 3 game.

During the major portion of the game, you will be spending a lot of time in recruiting different team members coming from far ends of the galaxy. However, each and every member you recruit is important as play an important role in stopping the Collectors. You will have to meet each member personally and grow your relationship with them so that they treat you well in the lime of need. You might have to do various quests for them or listen to their stories. You can also take your relationship with a character to next level and turn them romantic in case you desire more than friendship from a particular character in the game.

Another great thing about this game is that everything is very detailed. Even when you are in combat or in a conversation, or on another planet. Yes, you need to travel from planet to planet in order to mine minerals that will help you upgrade your ship, your armor as well as your weapons. You can do this while you are on a side mission or just roaming about with an aim to upgrade everything you have.

This is a must play for those who love the character development in RPG games. There is a lot of decision making in Mass Effect 2 just like Fallout 4. It is slow but really deep as well as intense. Mass Effect 2 is huge, detailed and fun to play the game with interesting characters, smart decision making and a lot of adventure.

Call of Duty: World War II Update Coming Soon Fixing all the Online Bugs

Call of Duty: World War II is one of the best action first-person shooter released by COD till date which was launched earlier this month. However, unline many of their games, the COD: World War I’s release was not as smooth as we expected. There were a lot of issues that were reported by players from all over the world in the online as well as the multiplayer mode. However, in a recent post coming from the developers from Sledgehammer, they thanked all the fans out there for reporting the issues and supporting them by reporting the bugs in this “whirlwind” launch. The game possessed quite a few bugs but despite that, million of fans accepted and welcomed the game and loved it, said Sledgehammer in their post.

There was an update that was released by Sledgehammer that resolved few of the bugs but at the same time introduced a severe bug affecting their servers and its performance. In order to tackle the bug, they released a dedicated server especially for the online play and at the same time switched to the P2P setup. This release improved the things a bit but if we look at the drawbacks of the P2P server, many players still faced the problems like the host migration and some more problems. However, the Sledgehammer promises to bring these features back in upcoming days and also mentioned it as their highest priority.

In a post, Sledgehammer said that “Our highest priority is to deliver the best online experience possible. We’re not there yet, and we won’t rest until we are. They added, “Our entire team is working around the clock, and we would like to share our current status update.”

It might annoy a lot of COD: WWII lovers out there but these dedicated servers are only limited to certain regions. They said, “This level of data and diagnostics is helping us work toward a permanent solution as quickly as possible.” “We’ve begun to test dedicated servers today in U.S. We’ll watch this test closely, and once we analyze the result we’ll look to expand.”

They also brought up another issue that most of the players have reported in which they got disconnected from the server automatically. The root cause of the problem has been recognized by the developers and they are planning to come up with a patch fix tonight for both the Xbox One as well as PS4 consoles that will fix this problem. While the players got disconnected, they lose all the unsaved stats and achievements and came across other problems as well.

Sledgehammer also accepted that the most exciting and popular Call of Duty: World War II Headquarters mode is not working as they expected it to be. For those who do not know, COD: WWII Headquarters is the place where most of the online players meet. However, they made it a solo experience last week for improving the online experience for the gamers. You still have the option of inviting your friends over manually, but that is going to stay for a while now.

The best part about it is they have ensured all the fans out there that they complain are not going unheard and the studio is working on making the game perfect. The next update that is going to hit the game is almost ready but they are not going to release it until and unless they have fixed the other issues as well.

Finally, they said that “HQ is best enjoyed with a thriving, fully populated social community interacting together” and asked the gamers to hand on to the present game till they rectify the most common and important issues of the game. “This is only the beginning, so thank you for playing.” They ensured the fans that they won’t rest until and unless they have identified and resolved everything for the fan community.

Call of Duty:WWII Single Player Review

Call of Duty: WWII was launched last week, and it’s already Christmas for COD fans who have played Call Of Duty since the beginning. And this time, no more running-on-the-wall it’s only boots-on-the-ground. Soldiers show up more individual and human, instead of looking like a few futuristic, cyber-mutant Marine. And since the soldiers' physical ability is limited, that they cannot sprint ​for a long time before tiring or leap longer than just a couple foot, the plan is presently a priority.

Call of Duty: WWII is about strategy, decision-making and weapon skill. But more or less, the new game goes back to World War 2 era.  Fans are pleased about it, and it seems like the COD franchise is finally back on its track of what the developing team was famous for. Although, Call of Duty: World At War includes a much better campaign along with the zombies have been fresh afterward.  While a return to its origins setting is appreciated, the entire thing still is a well-executed formula.

​The Gameplay

The secret, I think, is Sledgehammer’s commitment to going back to Call of Duty’s core. This doesn’t mean that it strives for realism or that it cuts back on preposterous action sequences, as this remains a Hollywood vision of WWII; there are set pieces which Michael Bay might have considered a bit much. Yet COD World War II puts gritty, fast-paced combat at the heart of everything while trying to give you the most definite feeling yet that you’re part of a platoon being tested to its limits. Sure it can be dumb, gung-ho and prone to uncomfortable shifts of tone, but it can also be powerful, emotive and thrilling.

This isn't about the presentation; it's more incredible because of the way the developing team has executed the entire game. This is easily the best-looking and most visceral Call Of Duty  available, and while you've seen a number of those warfare battlefields earlier, you've never seen them quite like this.

​The Graphics

Ravaged buildings, rain-drenched woods and the shores and trenches of all Normandy have never looked so grim and realistic in any other games. For all of the discussion of 'boots on the floor,' it's more accurate to say 'boots in the sand' or 'tramping through the snow.' Not any o​f the previous Call Of Duty has received environments which feel and look so grounded in real-world locations. The environment in COD: WWII is from the real world which feels and look very realistic in the game.

​Characters and Plots

This time COD went back into the fundamental mechanics.  You have a supporting cast of well-trained soldiers in your squad. Moreover, they directly assist you during combat based on your needs and performance. ​

  • Robert Zussman  ​i​​​s your best friend who fittingly takes care of your health pack supplies
  • Drew Stiles ​ is equally helpful, he ensures you have enough grenades for the fighting sequence​
  • ​William Pierson is a war-hardened, mean, rude and dispassionate officer played efficiently by Josh Duhamel ( reliving his Transformers characte), his eagle-eye skill with binoculars allows you to spot outlines of nearby enemies.

But this isn't about photorealism, but about a confident, dramatic approach. There is a sequence after the Battle of the Bulge in which you have to fight and survive in an icy area which looked more the "Band of Brothers" television series. Playing on PC, I was amazed and thrilled by the noise and atmosphere of the entire experience.And that's not the only factor which produces this kind of warfare vibe.

All these contributions and squad factor are tied to your health and cooldown as you kill enemies. This excellent squad communication and method of supply are gamified. But I think it's a creative and thrilling subject to bond with your squad and kill some enemies on the battlefield.

​Verdict

Pros

Cons

  • ​Strong Campaign
  • ​Impressive Visuals
  • ​Intense and Thrilling Gunplay
  • Strong Squad Communication
  • ​Enemy Bullet Sponges
  • Few really new situations or ideas

The outcome isn't necessarily a stricter Call of Duty game. But it's the first in years at which I have not felt like an action movie fighter. You are right in the World War II era with merely a little bit extra care and caution which the past handful versions of Call of Duty didn’t have. But it’s certain that few maneuvers will surprise you, however, too the scripting and pacing give you a few tight situations and enough tiny scratches to maintain your heartbeat pace. It's fantastic at making the predictable exciting.

Everything you Need to Know About Star Wars Battlefront II

2 years ago EA released the Star Wars game and now they are back with a brand new Star Wars Battlefront II, which will be releasing in next couple of weeks. The Star Wars 2 Battlefront brings a lot of characters, vehicles as well as locations from the Star Wars franchise. There are a lot of changes that have been made to this new game when compared to the original Star Wars game that was released in the year 2015.  Star Wars Battlefront II will feature a whole new single-player campaign mode, bringing a new Canon storyline from the Empire point of view.  The storyline of the game might bridge the gap that we have seen between the Force Awakens and the Return of the Jedi.

One big problem that most of the gamers faced in the previous game was the paid season pass. You won’t be saying that in the new game as Battlefront 2 will offer All The Gamers free downloadable content so that the player community does not get fragmented. However, you will need a free EA account in order to download all the additions that will be released at the later point of time.

The game is really very exciting when we see the trailer and obviously, we as well as other Star Wars fans are eagerly waiting for it. so let’s not waste any more time And look at what the Star Wars Battlefront II will be offering to all the Gamers out there. Here we’re going to brief you about everything we know about the game from its release date,  game modes to various features that you will be seeing in it.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Release Date

There is not much time left as the game will be launching on 17th of November 2017. That means it is just a week away.  A similar release schedule was noticed by us while EA released the first Star Wars Battlefront game. The force awakens followed later with movie tie-in downloadable content. We can expect a similar release pattern from the company this year as well. If you are definitely sure that you are going to buy this game, we would recommend you to pre-order it as you will get Kylo Ren and Rey skins from the previous game as an add-on content.

In addition to that, if you are having an origin access, you will be able to get your hands on the game a week early when compared to others. That means you can play the game right now on origin. Also, if you want to play the game before the global release but do not want to subscribe to any of the EA services,  pre-ordering the Elite Trooper deluxe edition will give you the access to the game 3 days before the actual launch, i.e.  from 14th of November.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Campaign Mode

First, let us talk about the single-player campaign mode that will be seen in the upcoming game. Unlike the predecessor, EA has decided to include it in the new game in which the player will be playing from the Imperial point of view and will experience everything from their eyes. The whole story spans in around 30 years in timeline taking you to different places as the commander of the Imperial Black team and the Inferno squad, Iden Version.

The story continues from where it ended in the previous Star Wars Battlefront game, the return of the Jedi.  Being the bridge in between the original trilogy of the films,  we will see the main character Versio as well as his team taking the revenge of the death of the Emperor from the other side.  You might also see many similar and familiar characters in the singer player Journey mode as found in the original film.

Talking about the writers,  the story of the campaign has been written by Walt Williams, who is also popular for writing the story of Special Ops: The Line, video game. We personally think that he is the perfect writer for jotting down the story of the bad side like he did in the other games. Not only that, LucasFilms also claims that the story of the Inferno Squad is going to play a key part in the upcoming Star Wars Cannon game that we are going to see in the future.

Star Wars Battlefront II – Game Modes

The new Battlefront 2 is going to feature 5 multiplayer modes that will include Starfighter Assault, Blast, Strike, Galactic Assault and Heroes vs Villains mode.

Among all these the Galactic assault mode in Star Wars 2 battlefront will be divided into two phases. In the first phase, the team who is attacking should escort the vehicle to the end, protecting it from various attacks. Once you succeed, in the second phase you will find the defenders repelling away various kinds of assault in the whole new section of the map which gets unlocked.  This Mode was showcase at the E3, 2017.  In case you want to see how actually this game mode look like, you can see it in the game video given below.

 

However, there are many players who would like to play the Battles like we have seen in the previous games of the franchise.  If that is the case, then you should directly head over to the starfighter assault mode. This is the objective-based mode which is split into 3 different parts. In a  gameplay that we saw at the Gamescom, the main aim of the player was to attack the Imperial Fondor shipyards from the Rebel x wing cockpit.  Just similar to other game modes, the player needs to take care of the enemy defenses before you can reach and strike the main objective. In between the game, the players will have lots of chances where they could play as other characters as well like Kylo Ren or the Luke Skywalker.

There is also a multiplayer mode in the game which allows more than 40 players to play simultaneously, all thanks to the  Galactic Assault battles. Similar to the Starfighter Assault which allows 12 vs 12 battles, the wars take place in the space as well as on the land and sky. The Blast mode is more like a 10 vs 10 deathmatches where the last man standing wins. On the other hand, Heroes vs Villians mode just allows 4 vs 4 duels which will have the characters from all the three eras.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 – Classes

The Star wars battlefront 1 featured a simple card loadout system in which the player had multiple roles to play and made the combat a bit easy. However, things are different with the new Battlefront II game. EA has used the class-based soldier system in this new Star Wars game where new abilities, weapons, and upgrades could be unlocked by playing as a specific class. Not only that, as the player gains experience with a class, there will be a lot more mods as well as improvements available to them.

There are four main classes in the Star Wars Battlefront 2.  The first one among them is the Assaults, which are the all-rounders or the Classic Rebel soldiers and stormtroopers.  They have different weapons like rapid fire laser as well as combat shield to protect them on the battlefield. Then there are Specialists which are basically Hunters possessing the Sniper rifles and deploying traps everywhere so that you can spot the Enemies on the map. Finally comes the officers which have the power to heal the allies and build automated Sentry turrets in the battle.

You can also find a second set of special classes which are advanced but need to be unlocked by using the battle points. These battle points can be earned by killing the enemies fulfilling objectives and by assisting other players in the game.

Star Wars Battlefront II – Characters

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 is going to launch with 14 playable heroes coming from all the three eras. These will include the Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Darth Maul, Yoda, Kylo Ren, Rey, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, Iden Versio, Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett, and Bossk. However, you will only be able to find the Versio, Ren, and Skywalker in the story mode.

EA has also said that each of these characters is going to possess unique upgrade abilities varying from each other that will help the players to include certain unique abilities, power as well as personality to the battle.

There are many more characters which will be coming later as a part of free DLC content. The first character from DLC will appear in the month of December around the release of The Last Jedi that is going to bring Captain Phasma and Finn to the game.

Star Wars Battlefront II – The Location

There are different and exciting locations that you get to battle in and roam about in this new Star Wars game.  They are different planets and you fight on their surface as well as the skies. These planets come from all the three eras as well. The planets include Death Star II, Tatooine, Fondor, Endoer, Hoth and Yavin 4. All these planets come from the original Trilogy. apart from that Kamino, Naboo Ryloth and Kashyyyk come from the prequels and Starkiller Base, Jakku and Takodana are from the sequels. We can expect much more locations to be included in the game in future DLC. The next DLC to be released in December will add Crait location from the Last Jedi.

Star Wars Battlefront II – The Vehicles

You might be thinking that why we are including a special section for vehicles in here.  But vehicles are going to play a key role in this new game which will help you to write from one place to another on the huge map. There is a huge fleet of vehicles from all the three eras being introduced in the Battlefront 2. They might also be a special emphasis on the starfighters all because of the space battles that are new to the game. You will also find a lot of ground vehicles in the game as well.
In the trailer that was shown in the E3,  display the hovering tank along with an AT-RT that convert the clone troopers into Mini mech warriors. If you look Up in the sky you will find the V-wings and the N-1 Starfighters flying all over and fighting against the Vulture droids.

The vehicle pick up tokens that we found in the first game are replaced with the new better battle point system as we have told above. The vehicles will be unlocked by using the battle points so that it is fair for everyone playing the game. The new system introduced in the game contains both the spawn-in vehicles as well as battle climb in ones similar to previous Battlefront titles.

Star Wars Battlefront II – The Loot Boxes

EA is not going to make the DLC paid, so the only way by which they will be making money from the game is the loot boxes. You can also call them the supply creates that can be either purchased or earned by playing the in-game matches. These loot boxes are going to contain different kinds of cosmetic cards which could be used to add different kinds of new abilities to your Main character or to your classes.

Similar to other games coming from the EA developers, different cards are ranked as common cards, uncommon cards, and rare cards. Along with them, there will be a different kind of crafting components in the loot boxes that you could use to upgrade your star cards to the new epic level. You cannot get these loot boxes at any point and will have to reach a certain level before you can use its contents to upgrade the star cards. However, they might be certain changes that might surprise us as EA have rectified a lot of things based on the feedback coming from various players from all around the world.

Star Wars Battlefront II – DLC

Similar to many other multiplayer shooting games, Battlefront II is going to expand its map, modes, and characters as the time goes by. The best part of the game is that all these DLC coming in the future will be definitely free of cost. The players will not have to pay even a dime for these expansion packs. There will be nothing like the season pass for which player did pay in the past in Star Wars Battlefront II.

However, the Star Wars Battlefront 2 DLC release schedule is still not known, but the first DLC coming out in the month of December will include new weapons, heroes (Finn and Captain Phasma), maps and vehicles.

Star Wars Battlefront II – Price

There are two different variants of the game available for the gamers. The first one is the Star Wars Standard Edition which will cost you $60. However, if you plan to pre-order the game, you will receive different kinds of bonuses as well which will include:

1. An Exclusive The Last Jedi outfits for Ray and Kylo Ren
