Firaxis Drops Tactical Ops DLC for Xcom 2: War of The Chosen

Firaxis Drops Tactical Ops DLC for Xcom 2: War of The Chosen

One of the coolest things about the Xcom franchise is how much replayability you get. XCOM 2 was released in 2016 and two years later, Firaxis is dropping new content to keep the game going. The Tactical Legacy Pack DLC adds more weapons, gear and missions to keep an already awesome game going for another few months.. or at least until they can reveal XCOM 3’s release.

XCom 2 Gets A Full Set of Star Wars Conversion Mods

XCom 2 has been one of my primary video games since it came out in 2016. There’s so much to do and so many ways the narrative could go, the replay value of huge. And when it started getting a little repetitive, Firaxis Games and Feral Interactive released the DLC War of. The Chosen a year later, which tweaked the gameplay and added new elements where it should’ve just been marketed at XCom 3. A year later, I’m about to replay through W0fC for my 8th time, when I stumbled across YouTube CaptainShack‘s video on converting the game with a Star Wars theme. It’s just a munch of community mods folks have created, but combined the right way, they game should basically give us that Star Wars 4X game a lot of us have been waiting for.

Another year, another WWE 2K game. I’ve own every WWE franchise game ever put out. And I’m going to own this next installment. Its become for me what the Madden franchise for other folks. It’s pretty much feels like just a roster update at this point, but it’s become a tradition for me.

Been waiting forever for this one. I still need to get myself a PS4. Maybe this game will put me over the top.

#Playing State of Decay 2

#Playing State of Decay 2

Like the first one, State of Decay 2 has become a life-draining evil. Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the updated gameplay. I’ve played the initial game and all it’s DLC so much I just wanted a new skin and new maps for the game I loved. Expanded base maintenance, needing to have gas for your car, specialized character traits… it seemed like way too much functionality for a game I just wanted to kill zombies and loot houses. But after a week or so of focused playing, I’m realizing I LOVE THIS GAME. Being a person who loves 4X games, I love all the things you need to balance to survive. There’s nothing like building up a character for hours and then suffering the loss of watching them die at the hands of a juggernaut.

#Playing Endless Space 2

#Playing Endless Space 2

I’m a huge fan of 4x games. I’ve been playing Civilization IV and Masters of Orion for years now and been looking for space 4X that’s as deep as Civ IV. Being on a Mac means the picking have been slim. Luckily, Amplitude Studios brought one of the most beautiful space games I’ve ever seen to the Mac. Endless Space space 2 is MASSIVE and COMPLICATED. So complicated I’ve tried to start it but got so intimidated I ran back to Masters of Orion. But this game is so deep and rich and gorgeous, I’m determined to master it. After watching a ton of LETS PLAY videos on Youtube, I’m giving it another go. So I’ve deleted Masters and Civilization from my Mac and seriously giving Endless Space 2 ago. With all the add-ons and DLC out, this should keep me busy for years

#E3 2018 Wishlist: World War Z The Game

#E3 2018 Wishlist: World War Z The Game

This is the year of the resurgence of Zombie Games. Overkill’s The Walking Dead, Days Gone, Resident Evil 2 Remake, State of Decay 2, The Last of Us 2… And now we get World War Z. It looks pretty similar to Days Gone but I think the boost of the franchise might put this game over the top.

#E3 2018 Wishlist: Dying Light 2

#E3 2018 Wishlist: Dying Light 2

The first Dying Light is a zombie game that was MADE FOR ME, but for some reason I never got around to playing it. I bought it and all the DLC in anticipation of diving heavily into it. But I just never got around to it. Seeing how good Dying Light 2 looks, I might need to go back and actually play it in anticipation of the new game.

The 2nd Season 2 Trailer for Luke Cage Focuses on “The Queen”

Even though the first season of Marvel’s Luke Cage was pretty damn good, the death of Cottonmouth and the tonal change for the second half of the season really did cripple its awesomeness. Hopefully, the showrunners have learned their lesson and will let Black Mariah take center stage in Season 2. Judging by the previous footage, their borrowing story from Brian Bendis’ excellent 2016 comic The Defenders.. replacing Diamondback with obscure comic villain The Bushmaster. That’s cool. He looks dope as hell.

#E3 2018 Wishlist: Overkill’s The Walking Dead

#E3 2018 Wishlist: Overkill’s The Walking Dead

Overkill has released four of the most cinematic game teasers I’ve ever seen. But details on the game have been nonexistent. Luckily, we’ve gotten a nice little teaser trailer showing some nice first-person shooter gameplay. Overkill’s The Walking Dead looks like Left 4 Dead on next-gen steroids! This will definitely be purchased on day one.
