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.

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.

NOSTALGIA BYTES — Old Faces in New Places

Nostalgia is a word that permeates the world of modern gaming. Despite our personal definition of “retro,” it seems we all want to find something that fills a certain void. We crave an experience that recaptures a feeling we had with a game from generations past. I believe we find a “certain something” in older titles that likely has more to do with our lives at the time we first experienced it than the game itself.

Intro

“For the love of the game.”

I love games.  There, I said it.  It took a solid few hours of dedicated deliberation to finally decide on my “angle” for this post, but it turns out it was just as simple as those three words.  Life can be complicated, exhausting, stressful, and everything in between; games are not, at least not in the same way, so here I am, proclaiming my adoration from the rooftops…or a keyboard, through a monitor, posted on the internet for the world to see.
