There was a game mode that I loved and played endlessly in Battlefield 4 called Obliteration where you had to transport a barrel like bomb to a series of Mcoms in order to destroy them. The bomb could be stolen by the other team and you then had to prevent them from taking out your Mcoms and ideally steal the bomb back.
At it’s core this looks very similar in that it’s teams trying to move an object across the map whilst others attempt to intercept them. I’m very excited.
Wreckfest is so fun and I really should play it more....
Why is that video so on point. I haven't enjoyed much in racing games outside of Dirt Rally 2.0 and Art of Rally since Burnout Paradise. And the other games I have put time into have only been small amounts. Sadly, I also haven't managed a ton of time into the quite interesting looking Drive San Francisco. I've gotten distracted by other games after restarting 3 times now. I did get further than ever before last year, though. Looks like only 3.5hrs, though.
More FF16 video previews
FFXVI wasn’t on my radar, other than being aware of it’s existence. Skillup’s preview has me excited. The gritty feel to the game is right up my alley. Not sure my reflexes are upto the speedy real time combat but it looks like I’m going to find out.
Fightin' Cowboy has put together some thoughts on Wo Long.
Really, I just want to plug FC - a great streamer and content creator who I enjoy watching even though the style of game he plays (action stuff) is not my thing at all.
Definitely uses bad language, btw.
Really well done video on black hair in games:
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Is The Sekiro I WANTED... | Review
Huh. I didn't realize it was a Souls-like. I may have just assumed it was like Dynasty Warriors but with demons.
And by way of contrast:
We recently had a thread on games that took over your life. Ultima 3 got mentioned a few times. Came across this extremely well done retrospective. It touches on quite a few things I had forgotten about the game.
The video criminally does not have many views so wanted to call it out. His other Ultima 1-5 retrospectives are equally so well done.
Haha, I just came to this thread to post that same video. I liked that the original Wargroove was essentially 'a fantasy version of Advance Wars, but moreso'. I'd be happy if they just gave me more of the same Wargrove, to be honest, but it looks like they're trying to go further? Maybe? I guess one potential pitfall is that while the original stole a lot of the unit balancing from Advance Wars, they'll have to somewhat figure things out on their own for the sequel. Again, having said that, could be potential for something great. Either way, it should be another great attempt at something Nintendo could be doing, but isn't.
