This one took me by surprise for several reasons. First of all it’s FREE DLC for those who purchased any of the new versions of DOOM or DOOM 2. ID has been extremely good to the fans with supporting Free DLC. Some.. small..and some like Doom Zero an entire experience.. So what did I think of it?….here…we…go!

On the Surface you could look at Doom Zero and say “Oh another Expansion!!”… However if you really dig into it you will come to find “Pleasantly” it’s telling a story about a piece of the doom universe that was never really explained. About a Villain or.. Villainess who was in the background the entire time and no one bothered to question it. I won’t say more than that but if anything this game is worth playing just to get a bit more context out of the Doom Universe.

Now the game itself is pretty much Doom 2 with a couple of added demons. Yet Again this is just a surface observation. Cause what charm is layered in this DLC comes in the form of amazingly brilliant Puzzles. I am talking the kind of brain teasers you wouldn’t expect from a Doom game. This game had me really using my detective skills to get past each level. Of course it starts out easy as all games should.. As you progress the stages themselves become amazingly fun to figure out. Not so much hard as much as it’s making sure you are constantly paying attention to what you are doing with the key searching.

If I’m being really honest this game which consist of 32 levels and was FREE is probably better than some of the PAID content I have seen for Doom. I won’t name anything BUT It’s really that good and really should get more credit for what you receive from it.

So this was an unexpected surprise for me. I wasn’t 100% on buying this one and honestly was going to wait a few months before buying it. However!! I kept hearing mixed things about it so I wanted to make my own opinion..and here…we…go!

So Re 8 OR Village as it’s called.. Takes place a few years after RE 7 and it is for the most part a sequel to RE 7. You play as Ethan Winters “RE 7” once again and you’re trying to find you’re daughter. Not going to spoil anything with the story BUT I find it funny that this poor man keeps putting himself into these situations where he has NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON!?

The game is beautiful in both terms of graphics and sound. It has a very cool story that directs you the entire game. Some interesting puzzles and monsters. The one thing I have to give Capcom so much credit for is Originality with this part of the series. The places you go to have a good mix of RE 1 and something new. People said we would see werewolves but they really seem like hairy hobos on steroids to me. Some of the designs look like characters from Bloodborne which isn’t a bad thing.. but yea.. odd..

This game is also very much in terms of the series an action game. Yes it has horror elements to it but compared to RE 7. Lots of pick up of inventory items like keeping track of Ammo, Herbs, and Key Puzzle Items. It made me happy to see the search and remember locations return for this game. Honestly it felt like a big return to RE 1 in that respect. Having to find a key and remember which doors to open. I liked it!

This week it was announced DLC is being worked on. I think it’s fun for the price I paid for it. Could I have waited? Sure.. But It was a fun experience and a good addition to the series. By the end of the game you will understand why it’s a RESIDENT EVIL game… check it out if you got the money it’s worth it..

I have no clue how I managed to forget to write this review. This game came out in 2016 and is without question one of my favorite PS4 games to be released on the system. Anyway.. here.. we…go!

Watch Dogs 2 is set several years after Watch Dogs 1 and follows instead of Aiden Pearce a New collective group part of DedSec set to correct justice in San Francisco this time around. Instead of working with only 2 other people on your side you have a larger Younger Group of Characters to help you. It’s in this respect the game shines because the drive this time around isn’t Vengeance but Hacker Justice and a crew trying to set right the issues played out by the corporations involved.

The main character you play as is Marcus Holloway. One of the things that you will notice this time around is how nibble the character is. Using pretty much the same mechanics as before but with an added advantage to use Parkour and better hand to hand combat. The game sets up lots of missions to hack into buildings and solve puzzles as the story progresses. This time around you are also given a cool 3D Printer which allows you to upgrade, Customize and create new items that will help you get in and out of each mission. Your granted a Drone, Spider Drone, Robots and while it does use the same Blue Line Hack puzzles it’s far friendlier this time around and not used as often.

While watch dogs 1 had a interesting online component of invasions. This time around you have a coop element also. Finishing missions with other players is super fun and can also be tedious at times while working with other players. It’s all optional this time and you don’t need to do any of it to progress the story but in terms of fun it’s on another level.

I can’t explain how much time I spent playing watch dogs 2 but it was ALOT. The game is clearly much cheaper than what I paid for it on release now 4 years later… almost 5… Honestly this is probably one of my top 5 games on the PS4. It’s fun.. great story driven action and worth every penny.
