It’s that time of year. Sitting at almost the exact halfway point for 2017, Todd takes a look at some of the biggest successes, and the most bitter disappointments, in gaming so far. All of this is according to Todd, of course, but you might just agree with some of his surprising picks.
With the E3 Expo hangover finally abated, Todd gets a chance to take a breath and give his thoughts, and his grades, about what everybody at the conference was, and was not, showing this year.
Todd always gets a little crazy right before E3 Expo, but then again, most gamers probably do. Here is what Todd is hoping to learn and see at the conference this year. What is everyone else expecting?
Although plagued with lots of problems like stiff controls, Old Time Hockey is able to capture the outlaw feel of hockey from the 1970s. The old joke that a hockey game broke out at a boxing match is never lost on Old Time Hockey’s throwback ice.
The full specs for Microsoft’s Scorpio should come out during E3 Expo, but some game publishers are already planning on throttling back their titles on the new platform in the name of console parity. Should gamers be upset?
Although the latest version of Prey plays more like System Shock than a sequel to the 2006 game of the same name, on the whole, that’s not necessarily a bad thing for this creepy, frightening role-playing masterpiece.
The year isn’t even half over, but Todd is impressed with everything that 2017 has provided for gamers so far. And we are not just taking about quality, because there are good deals to be had too, if you know where to look.
Todd has been looking for an NES Classic for months now, but no stores have gotten them in stock. With the announcement that Nintendo is discontinuing it, anyone who hasn’t grabbed one yet may be out of luck, or at the mercy of high-priced re-sellers.
Todd upgraded to the Xbox One S a while ago, but always had plans to make the leap to Scorpio if the console looked impressive. With details starting to come out, it looks like it might be one of the most powerful consoles ever created, with full backwards compatibility to boot.
Todd continues his No Man’s Sky second chance play-through, but even with the new updates, can it compete with the glory of Mass Effect: Andromeda and some of the other titles that have finally been released? Surprisingly, it just might, as Hello Games is really working to improve their game.
