So, I’ve been at it grinding my way to and past Power 265 for 2 weeks now and I have to say the PC version of Bungie’s Destiny 2 has been totally worth my time, albeit restarting another set of Hunter and Warlock after doing that long intro 3 times for each of the 3 classes on PS4 and in the betas before that. I swear, Bungie, let us skip that entire section if we already have one character past the campaign! There’s no point to it except plot setting!!
After anxiously waiting for my UPS guy to drive up the street so I can make sure that if any signatures were required (it was not), I could be there promptly (I work a whole 2 minute walk away from my living space).
A whole day ago, I had brought in my package and set it aside to unbox later that evening.
I’m happy to say that this thing is built like a beast!
Remember when I talked about feeling so underequipped in my modeling classes? This class made me feel like I got a little better. Project and Portfolio III gives us the freedom we wanted by means of asking us to create a project solely by the knowledge we had learned prior to this class. That also means that we are on our own for the most part.
For one of my favorite franchises of all time, I never had the fortune to play the original Metroid II: Return of Samus. Now, with this remake, I was afforded the opportunity to finally play through it, and it stunning new graphics.
Having been on Cuphead all week long after waiting three years for it, I’m glad it came out as great as it is. Cuphead looks all fine and dandy, but it is a hell of a fun challenge. Emphasis on challenge. Expect to be stuck at a stage or boss learning its quirks before you can move on. Make sure you’re equipped with appropriate equipment before running into a stage and be open to retries.
Pro Tip: Make sure you buy one shot and one charm from Porkrind in the beginning. You will be stuck with those two choices for a little bit due to lack of gold coins in the beginning, so pick wisely! I ended up choosing the Spread Shot and the Smoke Bomb Charm. These two helped me big time for the Slime boss, specifically.
Sorry for the lame headliner, but that’s kinda what we do. We’re corny, fun and a little eccentric. Plus, we like sharing our stories! So, stick around!
Now, I opened up like that because Monster Hunter Stories presents just as quirky. Behind the serious calamity looming over and bonds built and broken all over, it is a fun and funny game that does not hesitate to pull the puns out all over the place. But that’s not all it is. Just like The Witcher 3 can be the new golden standard of open world fantasy RPGs, Monster Hunter Stories should be the golden standard for JPRG spin-offs.
We’ve been at it on Destiny 2 for a little over two weeks now, and I figured: “why not make a little tips post on the blog?” So, here I am!
Destiny 2 is full of information that is not openly shared to us gamers, so we wanted to compile a quick list of things to watch out for while playing Destiny 2 as a new player. As I’ve just said, we are focusing on educating newcomers to the game so a good portion of this will be a waste of time to gamers who’ve sank their jaws into Destiny 2 already.Continue reading Destiny 2: A Few Pro Tips
