My Favorites of 2016

banner2.jpg

I didn’t play everything this year, I didn’t play every game of every genre on every platform.  I don’t even play PC games.  I know I missed out on some of the highest praised games of the year.  But out of the games that I did play, I had some favorite ones and found some memorable ones.  Some of the games might be leftovers from 2015 that I didn’t play until 2016. Hell, I even included some retro games in My Favorites of 2016.

This is what I played, and this is what I enjoyed. But to get a feel for my taste in gaming, I thought you might be interested in seeing what it is that I liked.  If you enjoy or have interest in the same kind of games, then you might want to keep checking back here on thegamerpad.com or on my twitch channel (twitch.tv/thegamerpad) because I might be covering the exact kind of games that you want to see covered.

Last week Nintendo held it’s first Nintendo Direct in almost 6 months.  I tried to make predictions and expectations, some of them came true but the majority didn’t.  Speculating is half of the fun of these things though!  Anyways here is a re-cap of everything that was announced, new updates, new titles, new release dates, etc.  Plus some opinion thrown in there too!

 

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD w/Wolf Link amiibo – There were rumors already going around about the existence of a Twilight Princess HD remake. A lot of us thought it was going to be digital only, as a collector I’m glad to see it’s getting a physical release. I’m sure the bundled in amiibo is to help justify pushing the price up to $59.99 but it looks pretty cool so I’m not complaining!

Zelda Wii U Clip – Nothing much shown here, just re-confirmation that the next Zelda is still planned for the Wii U in 2016, maybe people will stop speculating that it’s going to be NX only now.

Tri Force Heroes Update – A new update releaseing on December 2nd was announced. This update will add the “Den of Trials” which is a new area with 30+ stages.   You and your team must defeat every enemy in the stage to advance, there will be checkpoints placed through the stages though.  Read the rest of this entry
