Mario Party 10 – Mario Party is one of those series that have been with me since I first started gaming. Whilst this entry into the series looks questionable, I have faith that the mini games will be a ton of fun. Im hoping that Nintendo out the gamepad to good use. An exciting aspect for me is the Amiibo support. It’ll be interesting to see if these are used beyond what has already been announced.
Battlefield Hardline – A successful Alpha and Beta test of Battlefield Hardline helped restore my faith in the Battlefield franchise after it was shaken to the very core by the technical issues surrounding Battlefield 4. The cops vs robbers concept, original game modes and promise of faster paced gameplay caught my attention immediately and has been supported by the immensely popular Beta test which attracted some 7 million players. In addition to the stylistic changes taking place in this breakout installment into the franchise, episodic singleplayer crafted by Visceral games – the team behind the well regarded Dead Space series – also sounds like an appealing change or approach. Hopefully the game launches well and avoids server issues, as this could be a game I once again sink hundreds of hours into.
