So usually when I play games I stick to story driven character based single player games. So since I got to play Assassins Creed Odyssey (#spartan kick) again early in the day. I focused on a few games out of my comfort zone and got a few present surprises in doing that. Here's my top 3:
Ubisoft's Skull And Bones
So I got a chance to play a 30 min demo of Skull And Bones which is a pirate warfare game, The cool thing is if you have played any of the Assassins Creed games since Assassins Creed 3 when they first introduced ship battles,you will be able to pick up the controls rather quickly. The thing that surprised me about this game was the massive water world you her thrown into. You sail across the Indian ocean where you play alone in a single player campaign or you play cooperatively with up to 5 people. I played with 8 other people on the same map as i was and while I was off doing single player stuff (assaulting cpu controlled ships and looting them) everyone else was involved in a very intense ship battle. That makes me think that battle royal mode good really take this game to another level.
OverKill's The Walking Dead
So let's be honest. The Walking Dead is a show that currently slowly falling out of favor with a lot of viewers. But this game reminds of why we fell in love with the show in the first place. You and 3 others play in a post zombie apocalypse ridden Washington D.C. and work to survive your circumstances. Each player has a specialty (healer,tank,etc) and you set out to complete tasks to increase your groups chance of survival. In our demo we had to work together to get a water purifier from a rival group but we had fight through locked fences, destroyed roads, and of course walkers to get there. And that's not including the fact that you have to fight the rival group for the purifier once you go there. This requires teamwork overall to achieve most all of its objectives and will be a pleasant time for you if you have the time and friends to play it with.
Call Of Duty:Black Ops 4
You all now I am not a good Call Of Duty player. That being said the way you have to play this rendition of them game may give me hope. We all know that the best way to win at call of duty is overall team communication. That is still the case but this year when you add that each player has a special ability or skill it will make it imperative that you communicate strategies and tactics.
All-in-all, day two was a really busy day but it gave me the time to explore some great other IP's that are coming are way in 2018!
I also played Assassins Creed Odyssey again and man.......the spartan kick doesn't get old.....
