🎮 What are your thoughts on games that release in episodes?
Personally, I am not a fan. For ages I thought the worst thing was the wait in between them – it is not.
Early reviews: Something I didn’t give much thought to, until very recently, was that users and critics alike would be leaving reviews on perhaps just two hours of a game… Barely much more than an introduction. This can lead to a lot of bad reviews because it is unlikely, that in this short time, we learn exactly what the message/story of the game will be, which other characters we will meet, how the overtone tone may change and so on. This, of course can then influence a lot of players to not give the game a chance at all and it is unlikely the rating could recover. Imagine if critics rated ‘Red Dead Redemption Two’ only after chapter 2.
Cancellations: This has to be the worst, most annoying and upsetting thing about them – especially if you’ve waiting a very long time for the next episode or season. One of the biggest pieces of news this year was Telltale Games shutting down. Thankfully ‘The Walking Dead’ will be completed but I know a lot of people are gutted about there not being a sequel to ‘The Wolf Among Us.’ I’m gutted that ‘Tales From The Borderlands’ won’t have a sequel. I tried to get into ‘Borderlands’ but it didn’t happen. However, I loved TFTB so much. It was so funny, had a great soundtrack, interesting characters and the most hilarious sequence I have ever played, EVER *cough*fingergunfight*cough*
And it just had to end on a CLIFFHANGER T_________T
Blues and Bullets: I got hooked on this from the start, I loved the noir style and the atmosphere. Still not over the fact that there won’t be more.
D4: Dark Dream Don’t Die: This game was so unique and so strange. Not for everyone but the weirdness and humour in it is so up my alley. I was in denial that this wouldn’t be completed for the longest time.
As a bonus you could play this using the Kinect. There are still not many games for the Kinect so not only was this a nice addition it just made the gameplay so much more fun and I had a blast.
These are just a few of the ones I liked. Did you like any of these games?
Hiatus is over early, because I got more content. I costested Clementine Season4, because why not? I like the way she turned out.
