Revising History With A Katana
HIGH Riding through a field on horseback, leveling enemies with a spear.
LOW The war-loving take on Japanese history.
WTF They’re gay-coding a historical figure who had 20 children. Weird choice!
World War Z, the dynamic and extremely replayable co-op zombie shooter, is getting a huge content upgrade this month in the form of the Aftermath update. I was lucky enough to get a chance to play it, and I’ve come away impressed with the changes the developers have made to their already-compelling third person shooter.
With its eerily familiar locations, its plot about freeing an island from brutal dictator, and a casually-murderous villain from the TV show Better Call Saul, Ubisoft’s upcoming Far Cry 6 immediately feels like a knowing throwback to the genre-redefining Far Cry 3. The crucial difference between them, however, lies in the point of view. Where FC3 wanted players to feel baffled and intrigued by the strange new world they were exploring, FC6 puts them in the role of a citizen of Yara, the fictional Carribean island on which the game is set.
Dead Before He Heard the Shot
HIGH Getting a headshot while sliding into an enemy base.
LOW The extended underground swimming sequence.
WTF Yup, that’s definitely an eye flying away in slo-mo.
From Redwall to Moss, fantasy scenarios about adorable mice are a safe bet when it comes to intriguing an audience.
King’s Bounty is one of the oldest names in computer strategy gaming, with the first edition released 31 years ago. Its mixture of RPG-style open-world adventuring and grid-based combat found great acclaim, although not as much as it would after being adapted into Heroes of Might and Magic. That series pivoted towards the grand strategy genre, with the player focusing on controlling resources and building epically-huge armies.
Always Deeper Down The Rabbit Hole
HIGH Absolutely dominating with a level 5 Magnum.
LOW Traps that one-shot the player with no warning.
WTF Are there seriously just three monster types?
Dropping Into 1943
HIGH Getting a scope shot from 250 meters away.
LOW Fighting against technical limitations on PSVR.
WTF That’s a strange replacement for Swastikas everywhere!
On Mars, Red Is The Color Of Death
HIGH Using air strikes to absolutely crush a monstrous boss.
LOW Getting the same convoy defense mission for the 20th time.
WTF Oh, so the zombie biomass is thinking now? Fantastic news!
