For our forth preview of some of the best games that we are supposed to be playing this year, I handpicked a couple of titles from a bunch of series which I fairly enjoyed in the past. So one could only assume that a sequel can really do nothing to spoil a game that’s already pretty damn good, right? Well we have examples that prove me wrong, but let us hope that there won’t be any need to include any of these titles on that list as well. First one up is:
Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII – Opening Cinematic
You all must have heard at least something about Final Fantasy by now, because you know, it keeps on going with 13 gaming sequels alone and counting, the series simply refuse to die. Testimony to that we have this newest addition to the family of the FF games, launched almost a month ago worldwide. I sort of enjoy a little japanase animation in my video games from DmC onwards, so I might just give this a try as well, although I would have to break open my old console to do that since the game was only released for Xbox 360 and PS 3. Still the game should be worth it at least for the pretty face of the main character that you’ll be running around with if noy for anything else, because quite frankly after 13 prequels it’s bloody hard to bring something, but we may never know.
inFamous Second Son – E3 Trailer (PS 4)
Second title on our list is inFamous: Second Son. It is no wonder that it just simply had to be in the seat number two on this petite list of ours, right? Anyways, the game looks pretty good as you’ve probably noticed from the trailer and it is planned for release in the very near future (on the 21st of March to be more precise) and it’s going to be one of those PS 4 titles only (maybe because it’s published by Sony, who knows). So then the game doesn’t take itself all that seriously so neither will I for now, I just mentioned it because it set a pretty high level of expectacy so it made me all to curious about it, but one must still admit the potential of a young disturbed kid with some extreme super powers that promise a lot within the game.
Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Opening (English)
So then our third follow-up is actually part of the fifth installment in the Metal Gear Solid series. Now don’t get things confused, by mixing up Solid with Revengeance, beause although they are parts of the one and the same story, the years in which they take place are rather different, thus giving a special allure to each game. Ground Zeroes for example is set in 1975 and promises even more than Revengeance (of which we spoke at some time in the past in case you were wondering) much more to tell the truth, now will it be able to deliver, that is something that remains to be seen. Another reason for which we should be happy is the fact that this title too is set for launch at the end of the current month, plus it will be a cross-breed ‘tween platforms so for this one, when time will come to play it as well, we won’t need to change the whole console system cause it might just work on all big fours if you know what I mean … If you don’t then just check the darn official page and view the system requirements, will you? I’m not going to copy paste those in here as well just to make it easier, you know.
Thief – Launch Trailer
And the final title on our list for today is Thief, oddly enough, the fourth game in the Thief series, which started way back in 1998. Now clearly there’s a progression seen in the engines and design and context and level plus character details, but quite frankly that can be seen in almost any new game you can possibly think of. My interests usually lies with the story of everything and this game does promise a little narration. Now it most certainly won’t beat the Assassin’s Creed series, but I’m quite sure it will prove just fine to pass some time whenever we’ll have it. The game just hit the stores a couple of days ago, so if you’re into stealing stuff while living a slice from the life of a master thief named Garret while you’re at it, this is the game for you.
So these were it, for now there aren’t any other things left to tell about them (well at least things that I want to tell and I can tell in this given situation), except for you fellas to go buy them, play them and then leave’m to collect dust for the next ten years or so and then replay them as “vintage titles” and compare them to whatever games will you be playing in March 2024, off course given the fact that there will still be a 2024 and we won’t all get swiped away by the coming war … Oh wait I wasn’t supposed to say that. Anyways, that’s all for me, till next time, take good care and remember to keep your fighting within the virtual realm only. Thank you!
