July is here, which means we are over half way through the very challenging year of 2020. There isn’t much community buzz right now due to the cancellation of E3 and the effects the pandemic has had on game development. This is still a good time to own a Switch, however, as solid content continues to be regularly released on the hybrid platform. Here is what I’ll be playing this weekend.
Dragonball Xenoverse 2
DBX2 for Nintendo Switch may be three-years old at this point, but Bandai Namco have kept a steady stream of content coming for fans of the fighting RPG series. The level cap has increased all the way to level 99, and players now have plenty of new parallel quests and added story arcs to battle through. Your O.C. can now achieve Goku and Vegeta’s Super Saiyan Blue form – if you’re resilient enough to grind to level 90. Vegeta’s exclusive Super Saiyan Blue Evolved form is unlocked if your Saiyan reaches level 95! If that isn’t enough to pull someone back into the game, Namco Bandai have released multiple DLC packs for suckers who feel the urge to battle with the same characters…just with a different shade of hair.
It’s me…I’m the sucker.
Tower of Time
I am admittedly a little jaded when it comes to RTS games. I seldom find them to be fun, but every once in a while I find one that proves to be worthwhile. Tower of Time may very well be that one game, as it introduces an innovative take on RTS battles that happens to be very similar to some of my favorites from the past. You can check out my first impressions of the game here if you haven’t done so yet. Be sure to keep visiting SwitchRPG to catch my full review soon!
The Bioshock Collection
2K’s classic series has finally made its way to the Switch, and it easily withstands the test of time. I “kindly” rescued little sisters in Bioshock and stomped around as a Big Daddy in Bioshock 2 back on the XBox. My first time playing as Booker DeWitt in the sky city Columbia – Bioshock Infinite – will happen on the Nintendo Switch, and I couldn’t be more anxious to get started! All three games are still graphical wonders despite a noticeable difference in handheld mode. Still, these games seem like a perfect fit on the Switch.
That’s all for me. We here at SwitchRPG hope all of you have a wonderful 4th of July! Happy gaming!
