Dungeon-crawling card game is, funnily enough, a phrase I’ve heard before to describe a video game. The differences that The Guild of Dungeoneering brings to the table involve adding rogue-lite mechanics and an immense amount of charm to the mix. While occasionally the random chance feels a bit unfair, the fun design had me questing with my Dungeoneers for hours on end.
Now that a little time has passed since E3 2015, I’ve had some time to reflect back on some of the awesome titles from the big developers. A few of them we’ve seen before and there were even some that are brand new, but all of them are going to rock my socks off when they finally come out. You might be sick of hearing about them by now, but I just wanted to take a minute to give props to all of the big games that excite me most from E3 2015.
One of the most commonly enjoyed activities in video games might be surprising. Funnily enough, in stark contrast to reality, people just love doing chores in video games. Enter one of the most popular of these games in the history: Harvest Moon. I got a chance to see a very early build of the latest entry in the series, Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories, and Natsume has promised that they have taken many of the promising features from Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley and incorporated them into what makes the series special for this new title.
Free-to-play is always a dangerous proposition to make, but it can certainly be done the right way. Wizards of the Coast are very protective of Magic: The Gathering, and why shouldn’t they be, it’s one of the most popular games in the world. As such, they’ve put quite a bit of thought into bringing Magic Duels: Origins into the free-to-play TCG arena and are, at this point at least, saying all the right things to keep those red flags from popping up in my head.
Sports video games have never been a huge thing for me. I’m just not a big enough fan of the sports themselves to get the context of what I’m playing. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve watched soccer matches and understand the basic rules, but I’m certainly not an expert. This gave me an interesting idea: to try out PES 2016 at E3 from the perspective of someone who is not a huge soccer or sports video game fan.
