Welcome to 2019! It turns out that 2018 was another good year for games, from big exclusive blockbusters like God of War, and Spider-Man to independent games like Kenshi, and RimWorld finally leaving Early Access and getting full 1.0 releases. I played fewer games this year as I tend to only play games that are good (which is debatable), and I try not to waste my time with rubbish. This also means that there is plenty of good games that I just didn’t have the time to play, or old games that I have currently shelved for the time being.
Less than two years after the first Splatoon came out and Nintendo have decided to release a sequel to it. Like the first game they are currently holding a “Global Test Fire” on the game. Where at certain times you can play an hour and try out the multiplayer component of the game. These are My Scrambled Thoughts on Splatoon 2.
For many Lords of The Fallen will be seen as an easy Dark Souls clone and cash in but if you can get past that early impression Lords of The Fallen is a worthy addition to the action RPG genre. It is a more accessible and straight forward game than its inspiration but at the same time is often a more fun story with engrossing gameplay. This is My Scrambled Thoughts on Lords of The Fallen.
I have recently updated “My Scrambled Thoughts: Tom Clancy’s The Division (PC) [Open Beta & Version 1.0.2]” review post.
Check it out for my Uplay… U-turn on the game after playing it for nearly 100 hours.
Update (23/03/16): I have decided to update my thoughts on Tom Clancy’s The Division. This is because I have had a U-turn on the game. Tom Clancy’s The Division has been out for about two weeks now and has had about three major patches that have changed the game a bit in some ways for better and worse. Read on for my updated Scrambled Thoughts on Tom Clancy’s The Division.
It’s nearly summer so that means only a few things, Big Brother is starting again soon and the Dota 2 International Qualifiers have commenced. People from the digital sports community have teamed up with the GD Studio to commentate on the many Dota 2 games and hang out at their Sweden head quarters. What does this mean? It means GD Studio have on purpose or by accident created a new modern take on the Big Brother format.
Warframe is a year or so old free-to-play game from video game developers Digital Extremes. Anyone who has ever played a third person action game will recognise Warframe’s mechanics. So is it worthwhile to play and any good? This is My Scrambled Thoughts on Warframe.
I have heard the Elder Scrolls Online is not very good and I am not really expecting much from it seeing as I am basically over MMORPGs at this point. I am a fan of the Elder Scrolls games but from what I have seen they should have just added co-op to Elder Scrolls: Oblivion or Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and more people would probably enjoy it. My overall view of the game is mixed but this is My Scrambled Thoughts on The Elder Scrolls Online.
I played the Elder Scrolls Online Beta last week and initially though it would be bad then I tried the game more and realising it was ok but after spending more time with the game I realised the game was pretty average. Now I am playing WildStar and The Elder Scrolls Online seems like it positively modern in comparison. I will go over what I think of the Elder Scrolls Online soon but what do I think of WildStar (Beta)? The following is My Scrambled Thoughts on WildStar.
