Cody's March 2018 Game Queue

We're seven days into March 2018 as I post this and it has already been a really hectic and busy month for me. Amidst everything I've been finding it very difficult to find time to game, but I'm hoping my schedule will get a little less insane soon. That being said, there are a few games I want to finish up, a few games I want to dive into and a few I'm REALLY looking forward to, so here we go!


Warhammer: Vermintide 2

I've never played the original Warhammer Vermintide title, and by no means am I a fan of the Warhammer universe. Honestly, the extent of my knowledge regarding the original Vermintide was that it was relatively well received and frequently gets compared to the Left for Dead series. The comparison is relatively true for the second title, but with a lot more depth, customization and strategy. I just started playing the other day but I'm already really enjoying hacking and slashing through swaths of rat people and chaos soldiers, even though I don't really understand what's going on. Technically the game doesn't release until March 8th, but pre-ordering granted access to a short closed beta in which you get to play all the missions in Act 3. Ultimately, I'm really looking forward to Thursday and being able to play some new missions and earn more rewards. Vermintide 2 might just be a breakout game to look for in the near future!


Under Night in Birth Exe Late[st]

Despite the complicated name, I've never fell into the rhythm of a fighting game so easily before UNIST. I played the last iteration of the series on PS3 a few years ago, but that was a time before I really dived into more fighters. I think what makes UNIST stand above other fighting games for me right now is the incredible art style, soundtrack and relatively simple mechanics blending together to make really GREAT feeling matches. Huge shout outs to Fight Nights regular CATS for introducing me to the new iteration and even though our current record is around 1-53 (in his favor) I enjoy every minute playing the game. I look forward to seeing UNIST's future in the FGC, even if it's a bit out of the way from the mainstream. Hopefully Cross Tag will shed some light on the series for the future.


Monster Hunter World


I've already dumped around 100 hours into Monster Hunter World, and as I said in my glowing review, the game not only surpasses the expectations I had for a new and different Monster Hunter title, it also really made me rethink video games as a whole. At 100 hours the new task is to raise one's Hunter rank by fighting different forms of old monsters, and while I'm always happy to play with my friends, I'm looking forward to some new content. That being said, I'll probably wrap up some loose ends, like completing some events, finishing some gear and hunting some rare critters and hang up my weapons until some new content drops. This isn't due to pure boredom, simply an attempt to move on and experience some other games, otherwise I could be lost in the New World for months and months. 


Ni No Kuni 2 - Revenant Kingdom

IT'S FINALLY ALMOST HERE! It's been about 8 years since the release of Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, but it feels like an entire life time. Revenant Kingdom is not the sequel I expected, there are many changes to gameplay this time around, but the game still looks fantastic. I dumped over 100 hours into the original title, and I'm sure it will be just as easy to do so in the sequel. The ghibli-esque JRPG comes out March 23rd and I'm counting down the hours.

Nioh

This one isn't a joke! To anyone who doesn't know Nioh has been sitting unopened on my shelf since February of 2017. I know the game is really good, and a lot of my friends joke it's a game that would probably be one of my favorites ever. I always put off actually starting the game because I feel like the time is never right, but I have a good feeling I'll be able to start it very soon. I'm excited!
