Boots Nailed To The Ground
HIGH Three distinct game modes!
LOW Two of which feel pretty dang stale.
WTF I’ve no idea what they were aiming for with Frank Woods’ dialogue.
Battlefield is returning to where it all started. The original Battlefield 1942 was set in WWII. Now, 16 years later, Battlefield V is again heading back to the second world war. While BFV had an alpha earlier this year on PC, this latest open beta is going to be the first time most fans will be able to finally get their hands on it.
The title of this game, Elo Hell (google it) describes its current Early Access state accurately, and I’m not sure that there’s any indication pointing towards future progress. It’s both a new MOBA called Echo Star and a story-driven adventure about the rise of Echo Star and its professional players. There’s not much more to it in this early build, and with so little working content, Elo Hell can barely be called a game at this point.
HIGH The character designs are great — both grotesque and attractive in equal measure.
LOW Getting repeatedly one-shotted in the multiplayer mode.
WTF Ayana’s grappling hook needs way more explanation than it gets.
As a Deaf gamer, little is more disappointing to me than eagerly anticipating a new title, getting caught up in up how amazing it will be while I wait for release, and then being majorly let down by accessibility issues when it’s finally out. This has happened countless times, and it always seems to crop up with games I’m anticipating the most. However, some games get it right! The latest title I’ll be examining? Monster Hunter World, from Capcom.
