Weekend Gaming Playlist (2-4-2022)
We are barely a month into 2022, and it’s already been an exciting year for gamers. A legendary franchise has regained its form, the indie scene is as strong as ever, and there is even more to be excited about on the horizon. Here is what I’ll be playing this weekend.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
Was there ever a doubt that the legendary franchise would eventually regain its form? This is the one.
Legends: Arceus has finally managed to resurrect the thrill of adventure that the Pokemon franchise has desperately needed. These are no longer the cute and cuddly creatures that keep life peaceful for humans – you’re in their world once you step into Hisui, and that’s just the way it should be. For more thoughts on Pokemon Legends: Arceus, be sure to check our Party Chat from yesterday and keep an eye out for a full review in the future!
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Okay…I’m cheating on my Switch a bit. Yours truly has finally taken the plunge and gotten a PS4. FF7R was the one game I could not resist on the platform. The remix of the story, the electrifying combat system and the beautiful graphics have me hooked. Please don’t tell my editor Ben that this version is without a doubt 10 times better than the original. In fact, I wouldn’t be opposed to FFVIII and FFIX getting the same treatment while XVI and XVII hit the back burner for a while. Sue me.
Just as we chose to take a brief hiatus with SwitchRPG a few months ago, I had downloaded Dodgeball Academia and began a search for my own dodgeball sage a la Patches O’Hoolihan. Now that we’re back on track, I plan to continue this coverage as this is an indie that deserves it. Dodgeball Academia features a beautiful art style but the key draw is the combat. I can’t wait to tell you more in my review – stay tuned!
That’s all for me – what will you be playing? Everyone have a great weekend!
