E3 Speculation — Resident Evil 2

Alright, getting back into the swing of it with something a little fun and off-beat. We’re coming up quickly on E3, meaning we’re (hopefully) going to be enjoying some monster announcements from the biggest names in gaming. As someone who watches the event closely each year, I’m going to take some time to indulge some speculation (read: wishful thinking). Mind you, this is all pretty much baseless, though a few items may be found in some widely circulated rumors. I don’t want to give anyone the idea that anything I’m saying here is rooted in fact – just having some fun!

EARLY IMPRESSIONS – Memories of Mars

The survival genre has picked up quite a bit of steam! Even Bethesda just announced their take on the genre in the form of Fallout: 76 (at least according to rumors.) Spanning dozens of settings and environments, gamers have survived everything from zombie outbreaks to brutal winters to prehistoric beasts. Soon, however, they can take the challenge to the red planet itself, courtesy of Limbic Entertainment’s Memories of Mars.

MOBILE MONDAY – Honkai Impact 3rd

Well, the weekend has passed us by yet again – it’s Mobile Monday!

Today’s write-up is on miHoYo’s fast-paced character action game, Honkai Impact 3rd. Quite unlike the games we’ve featured thus far, HI3 (as we’ll call it for ease) is a 3rd-person hack-n-slasher drawing comparisons to games like Bayonetta and Devil May Cry. While I can’t argue it’s on the same level as any of those, I certainly see the similarities. HI3 is, sans mobile ports and emulation, about as close to a “console experience” as you can get on your smartphone.

REVIEW – Moon Hunters

Moon Hunters is a Gauntlet-style esoteric mystery game. That’s a lot of words. Okay, Moon Hunters is a rogue-lite twin-stick time-crunch adventure. No, no, too many hyphens. Moon Hunters is a peaceful action RPG by Kitfox Games. There, that sounds about right.

Rites to Royale

Battle royale is everything right now. Really, it’s almost out of control! The concept is simple — you (and hopefully a few friends) drop into an environment, stock up, and survive. Once you’re eliminated, you just re-queue and try again. Most games are quick, at least for beginners, but the satisfaction of ranking in the top players only feeds the desire for more.

MOBILE MONDAY – Sdorica

Mobile Monday is a weekly column dedicated to mobile gaming. Yes, it’s a catchy title, but I swear there’s more to it than that! Monday is often the most dreaded day of the week. If you’re anything like me, though, you’re spending some of that office downtime farming loot in your favorite gacha game. With that in mind, we’ll be featuring one game weekly, while also giving a few quick updates on other popular titles.
