I realize that I’m a bit late with this post considering a ton of other sites have let their own tips and tricks be known but I figured that I like the game enough to add my two cents. Therefore, here are some of my thoughts about Dragon Age Inquisition for those who are just about to start their first single-player campaign.
Love Story: Letters From The Past tries very hard to emulate a Nicholas Sparks romance novel replete with tons of melodrama and aching sentimentality but the generic and highly repetitious hidden object gameplay torpedoes any hope of the game making an iota of sense.
A while ago Hell apparently froze over because I finally played an Anuman Interactive/Microids produced hidden object game called Deadly Association HD that was actually decent as it seemed someone on staff finally managed to pen a coherent story. Sure, the gameplay was exactly the same as virtually every title that came before it but the narrative at least kept me interested during its short playtime. However, here we are a few months later with Jennifer Wolf and The Mayan Relics and, if anything, it proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Deadly Association HD was a complete fluke.
We are still a few months away from the most important video game conference at E3 so it goes without saying that releasing new gameplay trailers at this point in the year is certainly not expected. However, Canadian developer Bioware have surprised just about everyone by releasing this new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Dragon Age Inquisition which now has a firm date of October 7, 2014 for Canada/USA and October 9th for those in Europe.
The Lego Movie Videogame isn’t exactly as “awesome” as the movie it is based on as the entire experience feels incredibly less-ambitious than previous titles but there is still fun to be had although the franchise really is in need of a large injection of what made the film so beloved – creativity.
Dead Rising 3 might not have been the prettiest next-gen launch title but its easily accessible zombie-killing gameplay made it one of the most fun single-player or co-op experiences on either the Xbox One or Playstation 4. Just like any regular modern video game release, Dead Rising 3 has DLC content this time in the form of four individual packs, each one focusing on a new central protagonist. Dubbed the, “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos,” each piece of DLC is designed to feature new characters whose stories somehow intertwine with the game’s main hero, Nick Ramos.
Well, February has arrived and I find myself basically back on track for Galactic Pillow blog updates. In January I posted 13 movie and video game trailers and managed to pen 3 reviews, one shy of my intended 4 per month. When I first started this blog many years ago I had hoped to do 8 reviews per month (2 per week) but due to time constraints that idea didn’t last too long. Nowadays, I’m happy to hit one per week.
Come March 14th in Canada/USA we’ll see if the Need for Speed movie can somehow break out and become a big hit, ending the video game “curse” for good. Yes, nearly all video game movies either flop hard or are critical disasters and it speaks volumes to that fact that the “biggest” success is the rather lamentable Resident Evil franchise. There was a time when it looked as if Tomb Raider might become a hit series but the second installment quickly ended that thought.
