So last week there was another game that came out aside from Dragon Age… and this week I’d like to dedicate my recommendations to its most notable quality: how incredibly adorable the characters are. I am, of course, talking about Little Big Planet 3′s Sack Family. The recommendations here will all focus on titles with moments or characters that will make you go ‘awwww…..’ over and over again.
Blizzard and I have a lot of history. Some of the first computer games I ever played were Warcraft 1 and Warcraft 2. The first game I ever played online was StarCraft. Blizzard has been a part of my gaming life for at least a decade and a half, if not longer – it’s hard to remember exactly what year it was I got my introduction to them and we hit it off really well. Their games made me happy, and I loved the communities they’d built. For a while, in my eyes they could do no wrong… but over time… that has changed. I think we’ve been drifting apart for a while, and I’ve just had a hard time recognizing it… but recently, it’s been becoming more and more obvious.
Dragons are such a core element of so many fantasy universes and worlds. Whether they be mere flying creatures used as weapons or sentient powerhouses that govern the world, they’re a staple element that takes on so many different forms. So this week, that’ll be our focus. Be careful, there be dragons beyond this point.
With the second last of my 2014 Summer season reviews going up this week and the last likely to be later this week or next week, it’s time to give you a shortlist of the titles that you simply cannot afford to miss.
Death is often a controversial subject in creative works. How an author or writer uses it can make or break the story… when it is mishandled it can leave characters lives meaningless and make the entire story completely lack attachment. But when it is done well, it can result in some of the moments that will stick with you for a lifetime.
