2016 – The Year of the Playstation 4

newbanner2
Majority of my time gaming in 2015 was surprisingly spent on the Wii U.  Splatoon and Super Mario Maker were the two releases from 2015 that really got a lot of play time, but I played a lot of older releases too, especially in the summer.   There were a few months where I never even used my Playstation 4, it just collected dust.   Going into 2015, I would’ve never expected this.

My most anticipated PS4 game was Uncharted 4, and it had been delayed into 2016…I felt like there was no big holiday title, especially not exclusive for the Playstation 4.  In 2015 Bloodborne was a big release, but I could never get into it, I just did not like it.  Battlefield Hardline was a flop, The Order: 1886 was very fun but I was done with it entirely in 10 hours or less.  Batman Arkham Knight felt like more of the same, it wasn’t bad though but I only rented it and didn’t bother finishing.   A lot of other games did not feel like they were worth the full price and I knew they’d drop in price down the line.  I ended up picking up a few of them recently for cheap (Batman Arkham Knight, Mad Max, Resident Evil: Revelations 2, Dragon Quest Heroes, Tales of Zesteria, Until Dawn).   To be fair though, there were 2 games in particular I’m sure are great, I just never made the time for them. Those games are The Witcher 3 and Metal Gear Solid V.  I played some of Witcher 3 and it does seem fantastic, I hope to play more of those in 2016.

Now 2016 is here, I have some discounted backlogged titles from 2015 and it looks like the Playstation 4 has a strong line-up of releases for the year that will keep a Dual Shock 4 in my hands through the year.  The Wii U looks to be on it’s last legs, with only a few delayed 2015 titles coming out this year.  And the XBox One still hasn’t given me a reason to spend my money on it when I already have a Playstation 4.    The following is where I think a lot of my PS4 gaming will be spent.


Leftovers From 2015:

Batman Arkham Knight – I played through about half of this in the summer on a free rental but found myself bored before I could finish it.  I was able to recently purchase it for $15 new, I’m hoping to pick it back up and finish it this time.

Just Cause 3 – I’m currently about halfway through the 2nd Act, when I wrap up the story mode I’ll gauge how much time I want to spend pursuing side missions and trophies.  As of now I think I will re-sell this game shortly after I complete it.

Mad Max – I recently bought this for $15, I’ve never played it before so I’m excited to check this out.  I’m hoping it’s a good game, it didn’t grab my interest enough to spend full price on it, now that it’s cheap it’s become something to play in 2016. Read the rest of this entry

What I Played on Wii U in 2015

Quarter 1

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse – What I played of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse was mainly in Co-Op with my wife.  While the game does have the charm of the Kirby series, and the claymation style art looks really cool, I wasn’t overly impressed with it.  We currently are around the 5th World, I keep telling myself I want to go back and finish this, but I never pick it back up.   It’s not a bad game at all, but compared to other Nintendo titles it feels like filler material.

Mario Party 10  – I’ve never been that big of a Mario Party fan, but I do like to play casual multiplayer games with friends who aren’t gamers.  I also got suckered into buying this sooner because of the included amiibo.  The regular mode is unsurprisingly like regular old Mario Party.   The amiibo Mode was a little more interesting, getting to use your amiibo like a game piece and upgrade/level up your amiibo/character on-screen.   I had the most fun with the Bowser Mode where the players all played together trying to reach the end of the board before Bowser could capture them.  Overall though Mario Party 10 is your typical Mario Party game and similar to Kirby, it was filler material for early 2015.
