Well, it didn’t feel like it was five minutes since I was talking about the gaming I did in March! Despite time flying by, I have managed to p[lay quite a few games last month. So, without further ado, let’s take a look!
Let’s start this gaming summary with one of my favourite video game series, Assassin’s Creed. Yes, I am still slowly making my way through the series. At the very beginning of April, I finished Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, which lived up to my recollections of my first playthrough of it. If you enjoyed Black Flag and wanted more of that gameplay, then Rogue is a solid experience. Admittedly, it doesn’t do much different to its predecessor, but I did enjoy playing a game that was more focused on the Templar angle. Its still a shame that Rogue was overshadowed by Unity and its initial issues. Speaking of Unity…
I’ve also made serious progress in Unity itself, in fact, more progress than any of my other attempts to play the game. I’m not sure what has changed my mind about the game, but Arno feels a little more likeable and the plot seems to have engaged me more. On the other hand, the amount of collectables and repetitive optional activities, feel like filler and slows the games pace down. I expect to finish Unity by the end of May, so you may be hearing about Victorian London, with Syndicate, in next month’s post!
The next game I’ve playing, is actually one that has been sitting in my Steam library for some, Chroma Squad. Chroma Squad is a turn based strategy game that’s a parody of the Power Rangers/Super Sentai series. Its a solid, if somewhat simplistic in its gameplay, indie game which lovingly pokes fun at the Sentai genre. I’m almost finished it and, so afr, would be a game I would recommend to Power Rangers and Super Sentai fans.
Moving onto another PC game that I completed this month, which was also my April game for the backlog challenge, we have Her Story. You can read more of my thoughts on Her Story on the Upon Completion blog, but in short, it was a game I enjoyed so much, that I actually 100% completed it. It was the first FMV game I ever played and has certainly convinced to play more games like it.
Speaking of 100% games, there was another one that I completed 100% in April. Yes, April was definitely a good month for completing games, as I doubled the amount of games I completed 100% to the grand total of… four. So what is this other game? It was one recommended to me by Kim over at Later Levels, Stories Untold. Well, I finally got around to sitting and playing it and wow, it was an amazing experience, filled with plot twists and subverting my expectations! I daren’t go into the game too much, as it really is one you have to experience yourself. I will the ending is a bit like Marmite, you’ll either love it or hate.
And that’s pretty much my gaming for April. I have dabbled in Elder Scrolls Online and Final Fantasy XIV, but mainly for their special events that are currently being held. I’ve also been dipping into Diablo 3 on my Nintendo Switch, mainly because I’ve been burned out on Octopath Traveller. So, what have you’ve been playing? Let me know in the comments and I’ll talk to you soon!
