Of course, while gameplay is similar to previous Lego titles complete with two-player co-op it’s now possible to have a fully customizable character that’s integrated into the story.

Super Mario Party

7. Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game

Call of Cthulhu: The Official Video Game

6. Mega Man 11

Mega Man 11

This isn’t a new Mega Man X title but Megaman 11 looks pretty darn good with its sumptuous visuals. The same platformer shooting action that fans know and love is still here with eight robot masters to fight across eight stages. However, the new double gear system has us more intrigued.

Megaman can now activate the power gear system to fire a powerful shot or slow down time with the speed gear. At low health, a super powerful blast can be activated using both gears. Time trials, missions, leaderboards, and more are included with the base story. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to get our hands on it as Megaman eleven releases on October 2nd for Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Nintendo switch.

5. Call of Duty Black Ops 4Black Ops 4 System Requirements

Treyarch‘s latest black ops break away from an established Call of Duty tradition by having no single-player campaign. Regardless, call of duty black ops 4 will have multiplayer and the battle royale mode Blackout.

Blackout has already impressed many with this level of polish and well-crafted world design. Zombies maps will bring mutators and challenges to keep PVE players occupied. But will the entire package hold up over a longer period of time? we’ll find out when Call of Duty Black Ops 4 launches on October 12 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

4. WWE 2k19

wwe2k18alldlc1920

Another year yet another WWE 2k title from Yukes and visual concepts. Don’t get us wrong there’s a lot to look forward to in WWE 2k19. The showcase mode returns and this time it focuses on Daniel Bryan’s journey from Humble newcomer to WrestleMania main eventer.

Soul Calibur 6

Yet another long-awaited sequel is Bandai Namco‘s Soul Calibur 6. Classic characters like Mitsurugi, Sophitia, and Kilik return along with a few new characters as the story revisits hidden events from the first game. Soul Calibur 6 won’t just feature the same weapon based combat we’ve always loved. It will have special moves reversal edge which allows you to block and quickly strike back and the return of ring outs.

If that weren’t enough, along with the soul Chronicle story mode there’s “Libera of souls”. A campaign for one’s custom character that comes with different challenges. Soul Calibur 6 is out on October 19th for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Let Us Know Which Game Are you looking forward to play this Month.?

Top Action RPGs of 2018

This year is great for action-RPGs and we still have some more coming until December. Action-RPG is a pretty wide area to cast, so keep that in mind there are gonna be a lot of very different games here. Also, we think they are all worth your time. Here are the Top Action RPGs of 2018.

10. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Ubisoft has been talking about how Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is finally a true RPG. Now, the claim that it is now a true RPG is based very much around agency about giving the player choice. Which is great because that’s exactly what Assassin’s Creed is kind of not been that deep into. In the words of the senior producer of the game, they’re trying to keep it very blurry. It means that different answers to different characters can have large effects on what’s going on in the game.

This isn’t groundbreaking by any means but, Assassin’s Creed origins was pretty damn good. Therefore, to see them go further into RPG territory, that’s exactly what we want from this franchise. I can’t wait to play it next month.

9. Vampyr

Vampyr

Vampyr is a game that really looks like it was going to be great on combat. But it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, it’s a little bit closer to Witcher than I expected. However, at the same time, the addition of this sort of warping really did add a layer to it. I liked it a lot and honestly, I thought it’s a good game, I enjoyed the hell out of this. I mean it’s not without its problems is a bit well let’s just say long in the load screens.

But for the most part, it’s a really enjoyable game with a phenomenal atmosphere. When you occupy this world you really feel like you’re part of it. And this is thanks in no small part to just how well they characterize not just the main character but anybody in this game got so much attention to their character.

8. Final Fantasy 15

Top Action RPGs of 2018

It is basically a generation above the console version. It is a superior port in every way and it looks phenomenal. However, this is not the only reason to play it. But, probably the biggest reason to play it is that it’s Final Fantasy 15. And after some argument over whether it is exactly a Final Fantasy game, I think it’s probably the best Final Fantasy game in years. At least in the mainline series, it is.

We haven’t seen that into a mainline game, I’m gonna say even since 10 I did like the sequels to 13. But I’m not gonna call those mainline Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy 15 manages to put together a story of camaraderie and friendship and really came up with a good open-world concept kind of figuring out a way to make it linear but not linear and has combat systems just want us all to play around in.

7. Victor vran: overkill edition

Victor vran: overkill edition

A revamped version of the 2015 game that really did not get enough attention. It was critically acclaimed but maybe didn’t get the kind of wide notice that it should have gotten. This is kind of an interesting action RPG I mean it kind of melds a few different things. Also, this may be why it didn’t get the kind of attention it should have. However, it melds them really well, it has the more standard action RPG fare as well as somewhat they call reaction based moves.

Even some puzzle elements as well as a classless main character that allows you to tweak them with weapons, items, and various powers. It’s if you’ve got an itch for some Diablo kind of action Victor van we’ll help you scratch it. Therefore, it goes beyond that and it’s really interesting.

6. Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the golden country

Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the golden country

As a DLC or an expansion or however you want to put it by all accounts thus far it’s like another game. Therefore, if you like – Xenoblade chronicles – which is really just a phenomenal iteration of the entire Xenoblade series, why wouldn’t you want another story using those conventions. I mean Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s combat is just phenomenal.

It’s such a fun fluid game to play that gives you a lot of control but doesn’t force you down any weird rabbit holes. Also, really has a good enjoyable story with well-developed characters and the series just has a massive history of being great. There’s no good reason not to play this if you’re a fan of any Xeno game.

5. Kingdom Come Deliverance

Kingdom Come Deliverance

A complex take on something that really hasn’t been done enough. Now, we all looked at this like it’s gonna be similar to The Witcher except for without magic and that’s not what it is at all. It is kind of like that on the surface, it is a medieval RPG. However, the thing that they really focused on here was creating a combat system that gave you an immense amount of agency.

And it does that, it does it really well. Therefore, this is an interesting game and I think it’s honestly worth trying. But don’t go in thinking hey it’s basically like every RPG except without the magic. It is its own thing but that’s good we need more games that are their own things.

4. Fallout 76

Fallout 76

I am a little bit skeptical of this game. Making fallout into a basically ongoing live service, if you told me maybe a decade ago that there would be a Fallout MMORPG I would be there in an instant. I mean for all intents and purposes fallout 76 actually sounds really cool. It’s not so much the idea a world post nuclear war that you’re tasked with rebuilding in an ongoing multiplayer situation. This is more the trends in gaming at the moment that worry me.

That being said, if they manage to make that stuff tolerable or do the right thing and don’t include any of it while at 76, honestly, it could be amazing. It could be one of the better games of the next few years if it works.

3. Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate

This is an HD port of an expanded version of Monster Hunter generations. Monster Hunter Generations is especially for a 3ds game just a massive game, there’s so much to do in it. It does so much in sort of retreading ground in a manner that isn’t actually derivative or bad.

This game is enjoyable it kind of pulls off the original idea of the game perfectly, especially for 2016. Also, in an area where it was approaching, I would say the limitations of the 3ds. If you haven’t played a Monster Hunter game and have a 3D, yes this is definitely the way to go. It’s a phenomenal game and a perfect introduction to the franchise. If you aren’t gonna go for the world anyway.

2. Ni no Kuni II

Ni no Kuni II

This game took the formula from the first Ni no Kuni and used parts of it that worked very well as well as gave it a new combat experience. The new combat experience is now more action-oriented and it works. In my opinion, the second game is actually more enjoyable than the first. Is it as traditional as an RPG? maybe not.

But it combines elements of a traditional JRPG with a dungeon crawler, with a hack n slash, and even has some other combat situations. The skirmishes are actually really enjoyable and weird. However, it’s got so much charm and the story itself is just like shifts into gear right away. I enjoy the hell out of it.

1. Monster Hunter World

Monster Hunter World

This is just a phenomenal, 100% exactly what it should be game. I can’t really explain how much I like the fact that they made some of the modifications to the formula that they did. However, it’s almost seamless on paper it really doesn’t sound much different but it does have a few more Western conventions in it. And they work really well because they weren’t integrated in a way that really interrupts in any way.

You’re now in a massive open world doing your monster hunting. And that’s exactly what it should be. In 2018 there isn’t an excuse for this not to exist. Fortunately, they don’t have to make one, it’s exactly a Monster Hunter, it should be in 2018. That’s really the only good way to put it.

Side-Quests That Were Better Than The Main Story

lets about side quests. You know those lovely gaming moments that break free from the often constraining shackles of the main quest. And provide absolute nuggets of fun. Well, sometimes these little side quests end up being better than the main stories of which they’re a part of. so why don’t we just dig into their mind, and find some of this sweet gold. These are the Side-Quests That Were Better Than The Main Story

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Sit in Judgment

Sit in Judgment

Dragon Age: Inquisition is a lovely and rather beautiful game. And because as you would expect to be, a Bioware title has more content in it. A lot of people did moan a little bit saying that, because of the interweaving plot threads of the main storyline. It was often a bit convoluted and a little bit confusing. Therefore passing judgment is a clear example of what this game is about. Making choices with cathartic results. it’s like a mini Game of Thrones, as you hold the decision of life and death in your hands.

Red Dead Redemption

I know you

I know you

Now, Red Dead Redemption has a pretty brilliant narrative so it’s going to take a lot to top it. And there no other topper than this stranger mission. ‘I know you’ this is fantastically weird as it’s a quest in which John Marston appears to be meeting with God or death itself. The quest line sees you completing tasks for the man which acts as morality tests for John. And each step gives you more and more cryptic clues about Marsten’s future. Eventually, you end up pulling a gun on him, shooting him but nothing happens and it’s really eerie actually because you end up being at the exact spot in which John Marston dies, oh yeah ‘spoiler alert’

Borderlands 2

You are cordially invited

You are cordially invited

Borderlands as a franchise is basically a comedy routine with lots and lots of shooting in between and as such. The devs needed to come up with more and more interesting and insane ways to keep that frenzied feeling fresh. And that’s where ‘tiny tina’ steps in. Tiny Tina is a brilliant, loveable and she is par for the course in this theory’s utterly insane character. And defending her while she has a tea party is hilarious and brutal in equal measure. It’s the dialogue here that makes the situation brilliant. And the equation of insanity plus quality writing times by violence is what Borderlands is all about.

Dark Souls

Siegmeyer of Catarina

Siegmeyer of Catarina

I know what you all are thinking. “Dark Souls doesn’t explicitly have side quests apart from secret areas and painted worlds.” But for the sake of this record. And, because of how difficult it can be to follow some of these NPC storylines through. We’re gonna consider them as side-quests for this case. Sigma is one of my favorite Dark Souls characters. And the first time I saw his story through to the end, I felt genuinely moved.

He begins so positively seeking adventure, yet always being stumped by challenges that we the chosen undead eventually overcome. He’s always pleasant and happy but this begins to fade as we rescue him time and time again. This is meant to be a great warrior, but we’re almost embarrassing him through helping. The loss of purpose at our own hands is what leads him to hollow. And it’s truly sad to come to the end of his mini-narrative. Yet because of this power, because of this character, I would argue that it’s actually engaging than the main narrative. you may think I’m wrong but as a contained experience. This was more rewarding for me.

Assassin’s Creed 2 Brotherhood and Revelations

Side-Quests of Catacombs

Side-Quests of Catacombs

sometimes you don’t need a good story to make a sidequest memorable. All you really need to do is make sure that it absolutely nails the game’s mechanics. And that is definitely the case of the catechu missions found across the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

The player is tasked with a combination of parkour, fighting, and stabbing. That pushes the player to use each option to its full extent. As a result, they often become more memorable than whatever old ‘Desmond’.

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

A Testament of Love

A Testament of Love

While many may remember Majora’s Mask about the huge moon that’s about to crash into the place. we have to admit, that when it comes to the heart and soul of the game, it is all about the lover’s quest.

This tale of two people torn apart requires a massive amount of time spent by the player to get everything lined-up. And as a result, it becomes entirely engrossing as you finally get the pair together. And they confess their love for each other, the moon hits, and the game once again resets. It’s a sobering moment, but one that sure feels totally justified. These fleeting moments are more important than many other things in the game. And being able to give them this brief window of happiness, puts the entire narrative into context. I felt their loss way more than seeing the moon smashing into the town.

The Witcher 3

No Place Like Home

No Place Like Home

Playing Witcher 3 on PC with the ultra high setting was the most awesome experience. Besides that, this quest stands in contrast to the entire rest of the game and offers a race of real and interesting experience. Essentially you just relax with your friends and have a beer. The entire quest is made up of well-written dialogue conversation and funny moments. And you barely even have control of Jerald, instead just choosing his next sentence.

Then there’s the fact that you get blackout drunk, chase a goat and end up trying to convince an elf that you’re yennefer by wearing her clothes. It’s kind of like the perfect night out.

 

Oblivion:

Whodunit

Whodunit

Trying to pick a favorite side quest from a Bethesda title is a tough decision. However, amongst them all, there is one side quest which not only is absolutely brilliant but also it is one of the funniest experiences in an Elder Scrolls game.

The task is simple, murder everyone as a party but the approach is far more complex you can choose whatever method you want to in order to dispatch them yeah that’s right it is as good as it sounds. Through manipulation, subterfuge, and of course the little backstabbing, you can remain the sole survivor and even get away with the murders through lies if you’re that damn good or you can just wade in with an ‘axe’ and just forgo the bonuses choice is yours.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Professor Pyg

Professor Pyg

Arkham Knight was quite the divisive title when it came out, wasn’t it? on the one hand, you had a beautifully realized Gotham, you got the ability to swing about the place like a god damn madman and you had a vault of villains both young and old for you to destroy. But on the other hand, you got some pretty clunky gameplay you got an over-reliance on the Batmobile and he got a story that tried to have a huge twist but everyone spotted it coming from a mile off.

However, one moment that shone in the dark was this quest focusing on Professor Pyg. The mission was pretty simple, tracked down the swine loving surgeon. For the murder and mutilation of six corpses around Gotham. But the lead-up to the encounter was genuinely creepy. As you learn more about pyg and he reveals how he wants to make everyone perfect, it gives you a quest that becomes a horror story. Even after defeating him the dialogue between Pyg and Batman is superb, as Batman effectively makes Pyg sick by telling him he failed, triggering some horrible mental issues that he’s got going on. As if you weren’t aware that he had them already. But the best part is, is the voice actor who actually is none other than the guy who played howling mad Murdock in the A-team

The Mass Effect 2

Loyalty Missions

Loyalty Missions

It is a bit of a cheat for me to put all of the loyalty missions as one entry on this list. But when you get to the closing stages of Mass Effect 2 and you really understand how much it mattered what you did with your team I think you’d understand why. Now, in truth, some of these missions vary in terms of quality, so if I was to pick one it would be from my gas masked good time girl ‘Tali’ whose mission is ‘trying to defend her dad from accusations’ of messing with the sex robot race ‘the Gath’.

The reason this mission stands so highly is that the tone pacing an action are balanced perfectly with the choices that weigh heavy on your mind and threatened to break up not only Tali and her father but the entire Quarian race if you so fudge it. Now, The Mass Effect 2 whose main storyline was pretty perfect, but this was like a condensed version of it.

Most awaited and demanding games of 2018

The holiday season is upon us. And, we have a new Powerful fleet of NVIDIA ready to launch its new generation of Graphics card. Besides that, we also have a list of AAA-rated PC games to test those Graphics card out. These ‘Most awaited and demanding games of 2018’ are set to release in second half of 2018. let’s have a look at those games…

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an absolutely gorgeous game. And it is definitely one of the Most awaited and demanding games of 2018. Even if  Ubisoft doesn’t improve the graphics of this game over Assassin’s Creed Origins, it won’t affect Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s popularity.

As we have seen with Assassin’s Creed Origins. It totally depends on your PC’s performance that how this game looks.  Unless Ubisoft makes some major improvements to performance, a very solid quad-core processor is going to be required to hit 60 FPS.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Shadow of the Tomb Raider just about pipped Fallout 76 to the final spot. Thanks to the small part to the Geothermal Valley. Anyone who has played Rise of the Tomb Raider is familiar with this infamous spot. This hub area absolutely tanks performance. Now, with the news that Shadow of the Tomb Raider will feature the largest hub areas yet in the series. We are willing to bet it’s going to hit hard on our frames per second. It should be worth it though. As Shadow of the Tomb Raider is sure to be one of the finest looking games in existence when it launches on September 14th.

Forza Horizon 4

if you look back at Forza horizon’s third entry to its series, and its system requirements. You could make a pretty good assumption about Forza Horizon 4’s system requirements. Most importantly, if you think of all the money it is going to cost, it could make to your eyes weep.

Its release is set in Britain this time around with a dynamic season. And it is going to support 72 players online at the same time, in the same world simultaneously. Its a much more magnificent game that we have ever seen before in any other open-world racing game, making it a perfect showcase for the awesome power of your gaming rig.

Just Cause 4

Just Cause 3 was a demanding game in its own way, and there’s little sign that Just Cause 4 will be any different. Avalanche likes to throw everything at its pyrotechnic showcase. A map that is hundreds of square kilometers wide, chain reaction explosions, fast and energetic gameplay. And, for the first time ever, dynamic weather effects that include physics-based tornadoes that will tear entire towns up.

It’s the sort of thing that does CPUs and graphics cards weeping. Particularly considering Just Cause 3’s widespread performance. Avalanche has moved Just Cause 4 to its new Apex game engine, so this could prove to be of a wild card.

Battlefield V

Arguably, there is no other development studio in the world that can touch DICE’s output. Especially in Multiplayer field. The fact that they release these games in every one or two years. And manage to make them look so stunning every time. It is just the result of their talent.

The Frostbite 3 engine is fantastic as well. Every game released on it looks awesome and runs great. However, that doesn’t mean Battlefield V is going to be running on a calculator anytime soon. The gameplay looks fabulous, but when you count in 64-players, vehicles, destruction, and huge maps. Battlefield 5 is going to be a real test for our gaming rigs. It is the sort of game that a lot of people are going to be able to run on Low with any problems, but the High and Ultra settings are going to need the very best from our GPUs.
