September

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

Developer/Publisher: Capcom

An ambitious expansion to the critically acclaimed Monster Hunter: World heralded in the fall 2019 gaming season. While not necessarily a holiday release Capcom will heavily promote during Black Friday, it will undoubtedly serve fans with delightful gameplay and a beautiful world to explore. The expansion acts as a standalone game and was treated as a full release by Capcom, despite costing less than the base game. Keep an eye out for some price drops during Black Friday weekend! Note: you will need to own Monster Hunter World to play Iceborne.

 

Gears 5

Release Date: September 10th, 2019

The newest installment to Microsoft’s Gears of War franchise arrived shortly after Capcom’s offerings. Gears 5 is available on multiple Microsoft platforms instead of a single console. You can get this juggernaut on Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft Windows, or Xbox One. Many consider this to be the best Gears of War game to date, so if you’re interested in the franchise, this could be a solid starting point. Given it is on Xbox Game Pass, we recommend nabbing that $1 promotion so you can play the game for practically free.

 

Greedfall

Release Date: September 10th, 2019

Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Developer/Publisher: Spiders/Focus Home Interactive

This game will likely earn the title of hidden gem consider it’s sandwiched between two giant releases (Gears 5 and Borderlands 3). However, don’t let this one slip through your radar, if you’re into this type of game. It’s an open-world RPG similar to old-school Bioware games with a touch of The Witcher. Considering it’s already overlooked, this has the potential of being a nice bargain pick-up in Target or Walmart during or after Black Friday weekend.

 

Borderlands 3

Release Date: September 13th, 2019

Platform(s): PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Developer/Publisher: Gearbox Software/2K Games

Everyone likes Borderlands, except for those who hate it. In a climate in which every major publisher is jumping into the “looter shooter” genre, gamers are hungering for the franchise that nailed it: Borderlands. With this latest entry, folks can expect a myriad of weapons, characters, locales, missions, and a bunch of other wacky activities to engage in. Critics applauded its exhilarating gameplay and Gearbox is supplying Borderlands 3 with a plethora of post-launch content that will keep you playing for hours on end. This won’t drop in the 20 dollar range during Black Friday, but it’s brimming

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is receiving a new monster

The Monster Hunter World expansion has widened the scope of the players when it comes to objectives to hunt. Iceborne added the new territory of Hoarfrost Reach with plenty of terrains to explore, more weapons, settlements and plenty of things to discover. Capcom promised to update the game with new monsters and if you own the expansion you have probably faced the deadly Rajang already. With the second update of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on the way, the Japanese company has revealed a new monster that will be in the game once the actualization is launched.

The Stygian Zinogre is a terrible and gigantic beast that has a symbiotic relationship with Dracophage Bugs. It is able to use them as a weapon, and can shoot them as if they were bullets to harm enemies from a distance. But this terrifying beast’s true power only appears when it’s covered in red lightning.

The new monster is not the only thing that the second free major update is bringing to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Players will be able to explore a new region in Hoarfrost Reach, as well as unlocking new armor sets and Defender weapons. There are rumors of another monster coming to the game with the update too. It would be a dragon-type creature, but nothing has been confirmed about it yet. It seems that there will be a special event linked to the celebration of the Chinese New Year in December, but the details about it are to be revealed yet.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne – Defender set

The release of the new Monster Hunter World: Iceborne update is scheduled for December 5th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Don’t worry if you are eager to play the expansion but you do not have a console, because Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is coming to PC on January 9, 2020.

Darksiders Genesis, PC requirements unveiled

Playing Darksiders series is a good way of getting into action games. the features of the first few games in the series combine amazing visuals and a great design with thrilling, action-packed combat. Playing any of the Horsemen as they rampage through hordes of enemies, using amazing powers and spectacular weapons, is a good way of getting your adrenaline flowing and having some fun. It’s no surprise then that the series is getting a new title very soon. What it is a surprise, indeed, is that is Darksiders Genesis is a completely different type of game than its predecessors.

Darksiders Genesis will be an action game too, but its gameplay is going to be similar to the one you can experiment playing games like Diablo. Isometric third-person view, hordes of demons to fight against, and a couple of characters to play. This time, War and Strife are on a mission to destroy certain master demons to stop a cunning scheme from Lucifer, which aims to disturb the balance.

You can switch between both characters anytime if you are playing solo or play Darksiders Genesis with a friend cooperatively. As you probably know if you have played previous Darksiders games, War is specialized in melee combat. Strife, on the other hand, is playable for the first time, and he is specialized in dealing with enemies at range using a couple of guns.

If you are a fan of the Darksiders series or you want to give the game a try on PC when it is released on December 5, you should take a look at the system requirements. They can be subject to change before the release, but given the very short time left until the game launch, it is unlikely to happen.

Shenmue III Review

Cheese, wine, a perfect dry-aged steak – some things get better with time, but can the same be said for Shenmue III? Fans have waited nearly two decades for the continuation of Ryo’s story, and after a record-breaking Kickstarter, it’s finally here. Does it live up to nearly 20 years of expectations?

Shenmue III Review

Shenmue III’s story begins as Ryo and Shenhua arrive in Baihu after discovering more information on the Phoenix and Dragon Mirrors in the exact same cave seen at the end of Shenmue II. It was so refreshing to have the continuation of a story so connected, so blatant, without the smoke and mirrors of missing time and events seen more commonly in today’s gaming sequels. You could play through the entirety of the series and not miss a moment, or a single beat of Ryo’s story. That would be awesome…if the story wasn’t so damn jarring to follow.

The original Shenmue games captured hearts because they immersed players into a narrative through innovative design. You weren’t simply being told a story or developing the story as a single character; you were immersed and emotionally invested in the people you encountered. Watching them as the hours ticked by, following routines, going to work, shutting up shop – these are all elements common in many of today’s bigger open-world games, but at the time these were years ahead of the norm. Yu Suzuki was a visionary, a fortune-teller of things to come, predicting nearly every aspect of the modern day open-world RPG years before they became the next big thing.

That is what earned Shenmue its cult following, its critical acclaim, but it’s also what hinders much of the efforts in Shenmue III. Those same qualities that made the original games so intriguing have stagnated, instead throwing players into a world of dated mechanics, lackluster design, and an embarrassingly poor foundation.

Shenmue III’s ability to deliver a worthwhile narrative is completely destroyed by some of the worst dialogue ever seen in a modern video game. Ryo can ask a question but receive an answer to an entirely unrelated subject, and dialogue lines are repeated throughout the entire game, even during the same conversation. I asked a martial arts expert if they knew of any martial arts experts, but he’d never heard of one. It’s a mess. Half of the dialogue doesn’t even form a coherent structure worthy of an actual conversation, but somehow went unhindered into the final phases of production. I can only assume the heart, the passion, the story of Shenmue III has been lost somewhere in the translation, as the English dialogue is appalling and does nothing to bring its creative vision to life.

The entire game is fully voiced, for better or for worse. While Ryo still maintains as much character as a paving slab, the performance of characters is not entirely without merit. Shenhua is so soft-spoken it’s adorable, it’s like being tickled with silk every time she speaks. In addition, some of the random NPCs you encounter are full of personality and quirky behaviors. All of this is immediately lost as soon as Ryo enters the conversation with his monotone approach, repeated lines, and complete lack of character.
