So it is that time of the year once again … Summer and hot days and long nights and vacation and all the good stuff, right? Whether you are on a palm beach in Maui or you are stuck back home in the urban jungle of your own back yard one thing is certain and that is the fact that you still need to play games in order to relax and enjoy the small pleasurable things in life … Like finishing a level, earning an achievement or taking down that pesky boss that screwed you up a dozen times before you actually mastered a strategy to take his ass out. As such since I have never finished my previously promised post on the games of the 2015 I decided to wrap things up with this post right here and share my thoughts on the newest and most awesome titles that came out this year and that enchanted our senses with their awesomeness and also add a couple that will come out (hopefully) before this year ends.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Launch Trailer
Now you have to admit it that even if you are not a big fan of the fantasy genre that this cinematic is as awesome as it gets, plus the fact that they only used actual in-game sequences makes it even harder to swallow and so bloody difficult to run on a frankensteiny PC that apparently has to updated every other month in order to be able to run beasts like this game … But when you finally do it … And you get to play this on ultra HD with maxed graphics then O my dear Spaghetti Monster the eyegasms you get are just … Hard to describe in words… It will be very difficult to ever stop playing it and you’ll most certainly try to finish it as fast as you can and it will take some time. A lot of time to be honest, but if you put your back into it then it will certainly be worth it. Still truth be told every last moment will be totally worth it so in case you are still waiting to give the Witcher a try then just simply go ahead and treat yourself to some unforgetable action the likes you won’t find in to many other games.
Bloodborne Final Trailer (PS4)
This exclusive PS4 title is just great from all points of view and that basically says it all. Take all the good things from the previously mentioned game and combine them with cool stuff from other titles such as Devil May Cry, Dragon Age or obviously Dark Souls and you get this heck of a slasher that basically takes your gothic dreams and turns them into very realistic fantasies (especially if you play on a huge screen with a sound surround system all over the house … man that surely fills the spot I tell you). Other than that everything is smooth and even though the lore is kind of hidden during the whole game that’s kind of irrelevant since the whole point is to kill and kill and kill again up until there is nothing left to slaughter. But since the game was such a resounding success even that might be pretty far off. As such if you own a bloody PS4 and you don’t have this in your collection you need to get it. Pronto!
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (Debut Trailer)
Well it couldn’t have been a complete list without the latest AC title in the series, right? Sure there were plenty of issues with the previous installment and it was quite a pain in the arse to actually properly play it, but in the end after you got used to all the tricks both on and off the record, things certainly began looking interesting. By this point I for one really don’t care that much about the story since it always tends to be more or less the same, but what matters is the way in which the historical world is recreated. Now I really loved the Paris of 1789 and I most certainly love the Victorian Age London so I am already uber excited about this last gig that Ubi has in store for us. As such let us hope that the gameplay will be worked on and the story is going to be nice, but most importantly if they capture the “spirit of the age” just right it should be more than enough for me because I will be running around in free roam up until I have explored every nook and cellar of 1800’s London.
Dying Light – Launch Trailer
This one came out quite early this year, but I only had time to give it a shot recently and it was pretty cool as well, so I thought about adding it to the list as well. I mean think of the freedom from Assassin’s Creed in a first person perspective and add zombies into the mix and you get Dying Light. Brutal and gory, just as we like it with enough action to keep us entertained and sufficient jump scares to stay alert and right about enough mystery to keep us interested in the storytelling. Overall a nice mayhemish title that must be tried out before the year is over.
Hitman Gameplay at E3 2015
And my final pick for this list has to be obviously the new and improved Hitman. I just simply loved the series ever since my cousin got me a CD with Hitman 2: Silent Assassin for my birthday and ever since I managed to add all the other titles to my collection as well and I found enough time to finish almost every level on both stealth and rage mode. So it really was very nice to see that the chaps from Enix and IO have finally managed to pull their head out of the box and as such made it clear to everyone that Agent 47 is one of their best names and that it still has some fight left in him. This recent E3 preview kind of shows us that any game can always benefit from a nice rehash every now and then hopefully with good to great results to be expected.
And with this I bid my farewell to this list of games as well and I leave you with the promise that there won’t be anymore lists of this type posted on this blog. It was nice to have a little research done on these lists in the almost three years in which I ran my blog, but I feel like I have finally outgrown it and as such this was my final post of this sort. For the time being I still have a few other posts that I wish to write down, but overall I have nearly reached my cap and quite frankly I have never thought that I would have keep it up for so long. Well enough sentiment for now … Till next time, y’all take good care!
